A TRAFFIC ACCIDENT south of Freeport temporarily closed U.S. 331 on Wednesday,
Nov. 3. One driver was killed and others were seriously injured. (Photos by Jeffrey Powell)

Three-car collision

leaves one dead

An accident involving
three vehicles left a De-
Funiak Springs woman
dead and several other mo-
torists injured. The fatality
occurred Nov. 3 at around
7:55 a.m. at U.S. 331 and
Ramsey Road.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigating Tpr.
L.D. Slick reported that a
vehicle was traveling south
on U.S. 331, its driver and
sole occupant Brooks Lee
Chouinard, 33, of Freeport.
A second vehicle was trav-
eling north on U.S. 331, its

driver and sole occupant
Deborah Slay Smith, 46, of
DeFuniak Springs. A third
vehicle, occupied by Sandra
W. Adkins, 63, and Palmer
R. Adkins, 64, of Moreheatd.
Ky., was behind Smith's ve-
hicle, also traveling north.
The FHP report states
that Chouinard's vehicle "for
unknown reasons," crossed
the center line and into the
northbound lane. The front
left of his vehicle struck the
left of Smith's vehicle, which
rotated and traveled along
the eastern shoulder of the

road. The third vehicle (the
Adkins) took evasive action
to the right, which caused
its front to collide with the
left side of Smith's vehicle.
The FHP report lists both
Sandra and Palmer Adkins
as receiving serious injuries.
Chouinard received minor
injuries. Smith was fatally
injured. The report lists all
motorists as wearing seat-
belts. Alcohol does not ap-
pear to have been a factor.

Dissonance among neigh-

hour-long meeting of the
DeFuniak Springs City
Council Nov. 8. First on the
agenda was a request from
Rosemarie Simons to oper-

providing therapeutic mas-
A resident of Oaklawn
Square, Simons' neigh-
bors addressed the Council
to speak against granting
her request. Mark Ander-
son, who lives across the
street from Simons, told the
Council her business result-
ed in "cars and congestion

she operated the therapeu-
tic massage business out of
her home before applying for
the license. Rudy Summers
Humphreys voiced concerns
that other unoccupied homes
in the subdivision might be
opened as businesses If the

precedent was set to allow
a home-based business in a
residential area.
Simons addressed the
Council lastly, after earning
the planning board's approv-
al last week. She stated she
has four clients for whom
she must perform massages
in-home because she cannot
take her services/equipment
to their homes for varied rea-
sons. Only these four clients,
she said, would be served at
her home once per week.
Simons emphasized there
would be no traffic conges-
tion because she would have
only one client at a time and
has a half-circle driveway
so that no car would occupy
the street. "I'm just trying
to survive," Simons said.
Councilman Don Har-

Thank You...
I would like to thank everyone who believed in me and made it possible for me
to serve as your county commissioner for another four years. Thank you for voting for
me, thank you for telling your friends, family and neighbors to vote for me. Thank you
for keeping me in your prayers.
I look forward to continuing my work on your behalf. I believe that together we
can make a difference. I truly love this county and I want to continue to give something
back. There is no substitute for hard work and there is much still to be done, but if the
passion and excitement I saw during the campaign is any indication, we will have many
ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work to help make County County a better place
to live.
I am truly grateful for the support I have received and I look forward to the
journey ahead. May God truly bless Walton County and the United States of America.

First Friday breakfast gets Eglin update

The Walton Area Cham-
ber of Commerce along
with Chelco recently hosted
the quarterly First Friday
Breakfast with the theme of
military appreciation. The
catered breakfast, packed
with business and local area
leaders, included an update
from team Eglin by Col.
Marc D. Piccolo and Lt. Col.
George Trumba. Executive
Director for Workforce De-
velopment Mary Lou Reed
gave an update on activities
during the second half of the


Trumba was the first
panelist to speak, "We are
so excited by the outreach
this community does involv-
ing our military. You are
all constantly reaching out
and supporting your mili-
tary and we so appreciate
everything this community
does for us and the support
we receive from everyone.
We are so proud to be a part
of this community." Trum-
ba told the group that they
were undergoing upgrades
to the computer systems in

site C-6 and would expand
the range of the radar locat-
ed there.
Piccolo gave an update
to the crowd about current
military projects, "Civic
support is very important
to us, our leaders have been
out and have completed over
100 speaking engagements
in the community. We have
a national resource lab and
that was recently used for
Goodyear tire testing. Fish-
er House at Eglin is also of
importance to us. We now
have a place for wounded
warriors to heal with their

families and we are very
proud of that."
Testing ongoing at Eg-
lin of an alternative jet fuel
blend that could potentially
save up to 400 million gal-
lons of jet fuel was particu-
larly interesting the crowd,
"This hydro processed re-
newable jet fuel is made
from a non-food plant and
the potential is huge. Test-
ing is ongoing and this is
just a sneak peek under the
tent on this one." Piccolo
later explained that Eglin

Editorial Comment



Editorial comment


back at the war(s)


The midterms are over, and some say the Democrats
flunked them, but the Republicans now have to put their
money where their trunks are and accomplish something,
while the Tea Party will be looking over everyone's shoul-
ders. This week brings Veterans Day, which ought to re-
mind us of a few things.
SThere's been some interesting stuff going on in Afghani-
stan and Iraq, where plenty of veterans-in-the-making still
put their boots on the ground every day. I heard someone
the other day still referring to it as "Bush's war." That's
more of an insult to President Obama than to ex-President
Bush when you think it through, since we're still there two
years into Obama's administration, implying that Obama
isn't capable of ending it.
On that subject, Gen. David Petraeus, U.S. commander
in Afghanistan, reportedly has a timetable and map drawn
tp for handing over provincial control in Afghanistan to
local security forces. Petraeus is supposed to present his
schedule to NATO leaders next week, but wants to keep
his map unpublished, lest the Taliban use it as a means to
target certain provinces and districts, which of course they
would do, having about as much regard for human life as
the average video game character.
SAt the same time, Obama maintains he is committed
to begin the drawdown of troops in Afghanistan in July
of 2011. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is sticking to
his plan to have the Afghan' government take over security
from foreign troops by 2014 two years after his boss is or
is not re-elected.
As for our allies the British, their commander says they
are not reducing their force before 2012, though his boss,
Prime Minister David Cameron, hopes to start a British
drawdown in July, with a pledge to be completely out by
e To this all have added the caveat, "based on conditions
on the ground." In other words, we're leaving unless we
Gates has also gone on the record as saying the U.S.
may keep troops in Iraq past the 2011 deadline. Gates was
quoted elsewhere as saying, "We'll stand by. We're ready to
have that discussion if and when they want to raise it with
us." So, if Iraq says, "what's your rush, sit a spell," we'll
Stay? Who benefits more from foreign troops in unstable
countries the law-abiding population, or the groups that
6xist to create instability?
It gets muddier. We have more members of the G.O.P.
in power now, and I doubt anyone has forgotten Sen. John
McCain's forceful campaign talk on Iran. Republican lead-
ers are now offering support-to the president if he advocates
"regime change" in Iran, citing that nation's nuclear ambi-
tions. Likely House Speaker John Boehner put his name
on a letterto Obama, urging him "to take whatever action
is necessary to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear
weapon. All options should be on the table in curbing Iran's
nuclear ambitions."
Given his party's reduced numbers in Congress, and the
implication that his domestic policies may not be as sure a
bet as they were in 2008, Obama could be drawn into giving
the hardliners more serious attention. In return, the Re-
iublicans might be willing to talk compromise domestical-
ly. Meanwhile, hey, over here! We're the American people,
remember us?
We could be looking at a triple front: Afghanistan, Iraq,
and Iran. We have three parties in office: Democrats, Re-
publicans and Tea Party. That's one war apiece. Looks like
there will be no lack of veterans to honor in the years to

On Sunday, Nov. 7, a Victorian Tea and Fashion
show w as held at the Chautauqua Building to raise funds
for the Rural Relief Fund of Bruce, Fla.
Although this event was formulated by two individ-
uals, it turned out to be a community event. I would like to
thank those who stepped up and volunteered to help. The
DeFuniak Springs Woman's Club had four volunteers there
to help serve; they were Paullette Morrison, Chris Guzows-
ki, Betty Eddins, and Mary Clemmons. They were very im-
portant to the success of this event because they kept the
tea flowing and the buffet table filled. Also working as serv-
ers were local students Keara Bogart and Hayden Deaton;
Kay Brady took the helm and helped as supervisor for this
exuberant crew.
Many thanks to Marie Hinson who manned the
door and the cash box. If everyone knew just how helpful
and willing Marie is she would never have a quiet moment.
Thank you, Marie.

On Nov. 11 we pause, reflect and honor the ones who
have sacrificed their lives so that we might continue to live
in a free country, and enjoy our freedom which we some-
times take for granted.
My daughter had the privilege of visiting Arlington cem-
etery along with her classmates on their senior trip in
1993. She brought back a video of the trip which I'm sure
will be forever ingrained in her mind. It's really true a pic-
ture is worth a thousand words. We can hardly comprehend

I would also like to thank the models whose poise and
professionalism helped create a great fashion event. The
models were: Dari Bradley, Rae Vorwald, Christa Hicking-
bottom, students Devero Bogart, Lanie Williams, Shelbie
Deaton, Ravyn Kring, and Lewis Goodman. Without their
help the fashion show would have been much less impres-
sive. Thank you one and all.
In the bedlam of the dressing room was Melinda Wick-
ham helping the girls get dressed.
And finally, last, but certainly not least, I would like to
thank Teresa Bogart, whose last minute help saved the
day. She'll know what I mean. Thank you so much Teresa.
Often times we forget just how giving members of our
community are and we get so busy that we forget to thank
them for their generosity of time. Many thanks to all of the
people listed above who gave willingly and freely of their
spare time. Your help was greatly appreciated.
Thank you, one and all,
Rickie Wood-Bovee

the vast amount o graves that are there, in hat sacred

place, not counting all the ones who were brought home to
be buried, and those buried at sea and then you realize
that these were someone's son, daughter, or father. They

ful for these brave warriors.
My heartfelt thanks to our troops who are still fighting for
our freedom and our veterans.

Florida Republicans enjoyed a near total sweep
on Election Day, winning the governor's mansion, all three
Cabinet posts and veto-proof majorities in the state House
and Senate. But their celebration is muted with the pas-
sage of Amendments 5 and 6, two redistricting measures
backed by liberal-leaning interest groups that could ham-
per Republican hopes of solidifying their gains in the years
ahead. "I congratulate them," said Senate President Mike
Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island. "They had a good bumper
sticker." Republican Haridopolos and his counterpart,
House Speaker-designate Dean Cannon of Winter Park, led
a legislative charge to put competing amendments on the
ballot that would undo 5 and 6, but the Florida Supreme
Court struck them down. Haridopolos who will lead the
Senate during reapportionment said he planned to fo-
cus on job-creation efforts and not further legal challenges
to the amendments at this time. He doesn't have to. On
Wednesday, Congresswoman Corrine Brown, a Democrat
from Jacksonville, and Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart,
a Republican from Miami, filed a federal suit in Miami to
block Amendment 6, months before the first new congres-
sional district has even been proposed. It won't be the last,
predicts state Sen. l)on Gaetz, a Republican from Niceville.
"I predict there will be a deep rut beaten to the courthouse,"
Gaetz said. "That's what the supporters of Amendments 5
and 6 wanted." Every decade, two years after each census,
the Legislature redraws the political boundaries for its
members and members of Congress.
Republicans were looking forward next, year to redraw-
ing the political map under the old rules, where the only
constitutional requirement was that districts be contigu-
ous. State lawmakers also draw the lines with an eye to-
ward review by the courts, which subjects the districts to
federal rules dictated by the Civil Rights Act. The party in
power uses what latitude it has to draw districts that best
assure victory for friends or defeat for enemies.
Amendments 5 and 6, which passed with 63 percent ma-
jorities, dramatically change the rules. They require that
legislative and congressional districts be compact, equal in
population and generally follow existing city, county and
geographical boundaries. They prohibit lawmakers from
drawing districts that favor or disfavor an incumbent or
political party. Further language protects participation by
ahd representation for ethnic minorities. The amendments
were promoted by Fair Districts Florida, which is backed by
labor unions, the ACLU, the League of Women Voters, the
NAACP and Democracia Ahora, an Hispanic voting rights
group. The debate has nothing to do with party or race, in-
sists Fair Districts campaign Chairwoman Ellen Freidin.
The goal is to change a system that has not only rewarded
the party in power, but one that locked out newcomers by
protecting.incumbents, Freidin said. "It's a check on politi-
cians in general," she said. "People are sick and tired of
this blind loyalty to a political party. This is the first step,
probably of many steps, that we need for reform." Harido-
polos, Cannon and other critics say Amendments 5 and 6
are so limiting that they will be impossible to follow. Worse,
they warn, the new rules will not allow lawmakers to draw
districts that take into account the needs of minority vot-
ers. Florida has six congressional districts where black and
Hispanics are either the majority or near majority. In the
Legislature, 13 House districts and three Senate districts
include a majority of black voters and 11 House districts
and three Senate districts have Hispanic majorities. Those

districts were initially drawn when Democrats were still
in power, though finally approved by Republicans. Senate
Democratic Leader Al Lawson of Tallahassee, a prominent
member of the Black Caucus, said he is convinced that the
amendments will result in fewer seats for blacks and His-
panics. The NAACP is split internally, Lawson said. Its
leadership gets its funding by the other backers of Fair Dis-
tricts, so it went along, he said.
The group's real agenda, Lawson contends, is to break up
concentrations of minority voters, who traditionally vote
Democratic, so more white Democrats can get elected, Law-
son said. Lawson is term limited out after 28 years in the
Legislature and made a failed run for Congress this year.
"The reason they wanted to do this was to get more Demo-
crats elected," Lawson said. Freidin said that's ridiculous.
Minority politicians opposed to the amendments, she said,
are more interested in keeping their own seats than pro-
moting voting rights. "Are you going to tell me that the
NAACP is supporting this because it wants more whites
elected? Don't make me laugh," Freidin said. By Jim Ash,

Florida Sen.-elect Marco Rubio said in a national
radio address Saturday that Republicans must pursue bold
ideas like simplifying the tax code and reducing the nation-
al debt, and have the courage to fight for them. "This means
preventing a massive tax increase scheduled to hit every
American taxpayer at the end of the year," Rubio said, ac-
cording to a transcript of his prepared remarks. "It means
repealing and replacing the disastrous health care bill."
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he
chose Rubio to deliver the first radio address after Tues-
day's midterm elections because of his principled conser-
vatism aimed at reducing government spending and taxes.
Republicans won control of the House and gained seats in
the Senate for the 112th Congress. "Sen.-elect Rubio em-
bodies an exciting and optimistic message about the future
of America," McConnell said. "Americans are sending Mar-
co and his fellow senators-elect to Washington with clear
marching orders: Stop the big-government freight train
and respect the will of the people who sent you there." Ru-
bio, who had been state House speaker, beat Gov. Char-
lie Crist and Democratic Rep. Kendrick Meek for the seat
being vacated by Republican Sen. George LeMieux. Rubio,
the son of Cuban immigrants, said he's seen the country's
"unique exceptionalism" not because he read it in a book,
but because he's seen it with his own eyes.
"The past two years provided a frightening glimpse of what
could become of our great nation if we continue down the
current path: wasteful spending, a growing debt and a gov-
ernment reaching even further into our lives, even into our
health-care decisions," Rubio said. "It is nothing short of a
path to ruin, a path that threatens to diminish us as a na-
tion and a people." The Republican radio address is a coun-
terpoint to President Barack Obama's weekly radio speech,
which also focused on taxes, according to a transcript of his
prepared remarks. Obanmn said Congress should extend
3Bush-era tax cuts only for families earning up to $250,000
per year. He said extending the cuts to everyone, which Re-
publicans have proposed, would cost an extra $700 billion
the country doesn't hn'~ve "I recognize that both parties a're
going to have to work together and compromise to get. some-
thing done here," Obama said. l By Bart Janse'n I)emoc'rat

Eddie Farris becomes new Freeport Planning Board member

The first order of busi-

says report
A necropsy conducted on
the 32 greyhounds found
dead two weeks ago in
Washington and Walton
counties has determined the
animals died as a result of
starvation and dehydration.
The dogs' trainer, Ron-
ald Williams, of Ponce de
Leon, has been arrested and
charged with 37 counts of
animal cruelty, a figure that
includes five additional dogs
found emaciated but still
alive. Williams is currently
incarcerated in Washing-
ton County Jail. He report-
edly told investigators that
the animals were in good
condition the last time he
had checked on them. Near-

where Williams worked as
a trainer, has reportedly

City Planner Latilda Hen-
ninger advised the Board
that the city had received
a notice from the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) that its
flood plain ordinance need-



"open a neighborhood up to
multiple businesses." The
motion to deny Simons re-
quest to operate a home-
based business passed 5-0.
A longstanding issue
on the Council's agenda-
the abandonment of N.
18th St.- was finally re-
solved. The street, which
serves as the only drivable
access to Helen Crenshaw's
property, is bordered on the
east and west by Vista Prop-
erties and had been recom-
mended for abandonment in
favor of installing drainage
solutions and relocating the
Crenshaw's access road to
Wabash Ave., therefore al-
lowing the owner of Vista
Properties, James Bus-
bee, to obtain the property

known as N. 18th St. After
multiple failed attempts at
resolution in response to the
Crenshaw's request that the
city not abandon N. 18th St.,
the Council voted to leave N.
18th St. as it is and make a
50-foot right of way from the
west property line of Vista
Properties. In essence, the
city and Vista Properties
will swap properties.
The Council unanimously
voted to approve a contract
for median maintenance in
the amount of $26,400 to
Grasshopper Lawn Care.
City Manager Kim Kirby
announced the city received
a grant in the amount of
$175,000 for updating the
sewer system.

Sacred Heart Hospital Volunteer Guild to host holiday sale Nov. 8-10

The spirit of the holidays
will come alive in the main
hallway of Sacred Heart
Hospital on the Emerald
Coast as the hospital's Vol-
unteer Guild hosts its an-
nual Holiday Show and Sale
Extravaganza on Monday
through Wednesday, Nov.
Guests of the extravagan-
za will enjoy a 10-percent
discount on unique holiday
decorations, tree ornaments,
manger scenes, angels, mu-
sic boxes, gift items, baby
clothing, holiday games,

day. Sacred Heart Hospital
is located at 7800 U.S. 98
West, Miramar Beach, just
east of Sandestin.
"The Christmas Extrav-
aganza is a true celebra-
tion of holiday spirit in the
main corridor of the hospi-
tal," said Barby Parks, gift
shop manager and volun-
teer. "Our theme for the gift
shops is 'Shop while serving
others,' and the holiday sale
is a great place to begin a
wonderful season of giving
and sharing with others."

The Sacred Heart Gift
Shop is a non-profit fund-
raising program operated by
the Sacred Heart Hospital
Volunteer Guild. In addition
to operating the main Gift
Shop, the Volunteer Guild
opened the Baby Boutique
in the Family Birth Place in
2007, which features ador-
able gift items for both mom
and baby, breastfeeding
supplies, stuffed animals,
sterling silver baby jewelry
and baby clothing items.
Proceeds generated sup-

port current and future
services at Sacred Heart,
in addition to providing
healthcare-based scholar-
ships to local students and
prescription drug assistance
to underserved families in
our community.

Department of Education
program and part of the
American Recovery and Re-
investment Act of 2009. It
is a four-year grant which
will allocate $790,129 to the
Walton County School Dis-
trict based upon the imple-
mentation of activities with-
in each of the four years and
the amount of funding need-
ed for those activities. The
three major areas of change
include standards in assess-
ment, data systems to sup-
port instruction, and great
teachers, great leaders.
The notable change in
standards in assessment
is the transition from the
previous Sunshine State
standards to the recently
implemented Next Genera-


tion state standards. Under
Race to the Top and new
legislation, districts will
have to align assessments
with Common Core, which
are national standards.
Subsequently, the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT) will be aligned
to Next Generation state
standards, and over the next
several years phase-in the
Common Core standards.
Dailey opined the dis-
trict's heaviest reluctance
was the change in stan-
dards. "We've just gotten to
the Next Generation stan-
dards, and now we've got to
look at Common Core stan-
dards, [and while much of it
is similar], we're still going
to have to adjust to the part
that isn't correlated."
With curriculum chang-
es, the state and districts
will implement new data
systems, so the two commu-
nicate with data flow to im-
prove and/or modify teacher
instruction. Dailey elicited
an example that when FCAT
is administered, containing
different strands and levels
within each subject area,
data can be collected on how
students answered the ques-
tions, and can help a teach-
er modify her instruction to
help students in areas lack-
ing proficiency. The data sys-
tem will be a single sign-on
program and have different
levels of access for instruc-
tional and administrative
staff. Dailey said the new
system woul result in "bet-
ter data for everybody" in
addition to improving in-
struction by implementing
21st century technology in
the classroom.
The most controversial of
the application areas great
teachers, great leaders -
includes the performance
based teacher evaluation
requirement, which entails
creating a teacher appraisal
in which 50 percent is based
on student achievement.
Within that 50 percent, 35
percent would be determined

by learning gains (how much
a student improved, for ex-
ample scoring a level two,
whereas the student scored
level one the previous year)
and 15 percent determined
by student performance
(either by FCAT scores or
end of course exams). End
of course exams would be
given to those grade lev-
els which do not take the
FCAT, and in high school
could replace the FCAT re-
quirements to graduate, de-
manding students pass end
of course exams rather than
the sophomore year FCAT
to graduate. Additionally,
end of course exams would
be phased in for music, art,
and physical education.
The other half of the
teacher evaluation is yet to
be determined, but will be
selected by a committee of
teachers and administra-
tors. Dailey noted the com-
mittee will share and look
at the best practices across
the state. "Everybody doing
Race to the Top is in this to-
The other activity imple-
mented by the great teach-
ers, great leaders portion
will create a mentoring
program in which student
teachers will be mentored
by established teachers who
have completed clinical edu-
cators training. Addition-
ally, a mentoring program
for beginning teachers with
no classroom experience will
be established.
After the approval of the
Race to the Top application,
President of the Walton
County Educational Associ-
ation (WCEA) Trish Hutchi-
son said to the board, "We
are not in complete agree-
ment on the application.
We have reservations on
the value model and evalu-
ations... but we do want to
work with the district."
Dailey expressed her
gratitude for the WCEA's
willingness to cooperate
with the district. "I'm so
glad she was willing to say,

'we are willing to work with
you on it."'
Dailey continued, "There
are things in Race to the
Top that are difficult for
us as well...There are so
many of these things that
are already law regardless
of whether we send in an
application or not, like the
teacher appraisal [which]
has to be primarily based
on student achievement is
already in Florida statute."
On top of the appraisal, by
the end of grant the district
will have to attach perfor-
mance pay to teacher evalu-
ation (the method of which
has yet to be determined).
Dailey stated the district
will continue to work with
WCEA and negotiate things
related to pay. However, if
the WCEA says they are no
longer willing to negotiate,
then Walton County can tell
the Department of Educa-
tion it will no longer partici-
pate in Race to the Top and
would not receive any more
money, but wouldn't have to
return any funds already re-
The board closed its meet-
ing with unanimous approv-
al of the 2011-2012 school
calendar. Students will be-
gin school Aug. 8, 2011 and
enjoy a longer summer, with
the last day for students be-
ing May 24, 2012 and grad-
uation dates county-wide
from May 10-18.

DeFuniak Springs

recognizes November as

National Hospice Month

DeFuniak Springs Mayor
Harold Carpenter presented
a proclamation recognizing
November within the city
limits as National Hospice
Month to representatives of
Covenant Hospice.
The proclamation, which
Carpenter signed and is-
sued on Wednesday, Nov.
3, at the DeFuniak Springs
Senior Life Enrichment
Center, was put together
in recognition of Covenant
Hospice's 25-plus of service
to northwest Florida. The
organization serves 1,300
patients daily and served
6,500 patients in 2009 and
provides close bereavement
assistance to the families of
patients for 12 months or
longer following their death.
He said the proclamation
aimed to increase public
awareness of the kind of
end-of-life care hospice pro-
grams offer.
Carolyn Williams, a com-
munity education liaison
with Covenant Hospice re-
sponsible for Walton Coun-
ty and DeFuniak Springs
in particular, said the non-
profit organization's role in
healthcare often goes mis-
understood by the general
public. She said hospice's
mission is to assist termi-
nally ill patients and their
families in the "hard transi-
tion" from actively trying to
treat a life-limiting condi-
tion to that of making qual-
ity of life as good as it can
"The belief in our soci-
ety is that there's a cure for
everything and sometimes
that's just not the case," Wil-
liams said. "[National Hos-
pice Month's] is really about
helping people come to the
realization that choosing
hospice doesn't mean you're
giving up hope. It's just a
shift of focus. If we can come
in and give support to the

Horse Liniment
Erases Pain
HIALEAH, FL -An ingredient of-
ten used to treat inflammation in race
horse legs, is now back on the market
in its original doctor recommended
clinical strength formula.
According to a national drug store
survey,the formula at one time became
so popular that it rose to the top of phar-
macy sales for topical pain relievers.
But the company marketing the prod-
uct at the time changed the formula and
sales plummeted. One of the inventors
of the original formula has brought it
back to the market under the trade name
ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve
pain for millions.
ARTH ARREST works by a dual
mechanism whereby one ingredient re-
lieves pain immediately, while a sec-
ond ingredient seeks out and destroys
the pain messenger signal before it can
be sent to the brain. Considered a medi-
cal miracle by some, the ARTH AR-
REST formula is useful In the treat-
ment of painful disorders ranging from
minor aches and pains to more serious
conditions such as arthritis, bursitis,
rheumatism, tendonitis, backache and
ARTI I ARREST is available in a con-
venient roll-on applicator at pharma-
cies without a prescription or call 1-

Williams served as a
nurse for 30 years before
going to work for Covenant
Hospice three years ago and
in that time she said she's
done the most rewarding
work of her career, as the
organization is "completely
dedicated" to its patients.

The relationship between
Covenant Hospice and the
city of DeFuniak Springs is
ideal because of the commu-
nity's close-knit character,
which she said exists here
"like almost nowhere else."
"Everyone can help

Man arrested for

failure to register

as sexual offender

DeFuniak Springs Police
(DFSPD) arrested Eric An-
tonio Roberts, 37, for failure
to register as a sexual of-
fender, a violation of Florida
statutes. A Nov. 3 release
from the DFSPD stated
that detectives were alerted
to Roberts having recently
changed addresses within
the city limits of DeFuniak
Springs. An investigation
revealed that Roberts was
living at two separate ad-
dresses in the city. Detec-
tives were not able to verify
which address was Roberts'
physical address; Roberts is
known to be a transient in
the area.
Roberts was located on
Nov. 2 at 240 Frederick
Drive in DeFuniak Springs.
he was taken into custody
for violation of his registra-
tion. Area residents told po-
lice they had seen Roberts
in the neighborhood. Resi-
dences adjacent to the one

The DFSPID release states
that this is Roberts' second
instance of failure to com-
ply with the sexual offender
registry law. According to
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement sexual
offender database, Roberts
was originally convicted in
2001 of lewd and lascivious
acts with a child under 16
years old.

The 2010 Relay For Life
will start at 8 a.m. on Nov.

Americans made their
voices heard in the mid-
term elections and there's
ho doubt what they said.
'We're mad as heck, Demo-
pratic Party, and we're not
going to take it anymore...
so 53 percent of us voted Re-
publican, kind of like when
we were mad at the Repub-
lican Party two years ago
and the exact same number
voted Democrat. Of course
it's not coincidence or tes-
tament to the fact that our
public opinion is as eas-
ily changed as politicians'
bank account numbers. We
thought we should balance
it, to set an example for the
Voters let it be known
they were unhappy with the
state of the union and econ-
omy, and with fewer than
200 Democrats in the House
for the first time in 60 years,
made no bones about whom
they believe is to blame.
In fact, in a poll one week
before the election 66 per-
cent of voters said they be-
lieve that under Obama and
the Democrats, middle-class
taxes have gone up, the econ-
omy has shrunk, and the
billions lent to banks under
the Troubled Asset Relief
Program are gone, never to
be recovered. In addition to
those convictions, the public
appears to think that health
care reform will increase the
deficit, and unemployment
is where it is because of an
increase in illegal immigra-
When in fact, Hendrik
Hertzberg, a Harvard, grad-
uate, former speech writer
for Jimmy Carter and po-
litical expert, states, "For 95
percent of us, taxes are ac-
tually lower, cut by around
$400 a year for individuals
and twice that for families.
(The stimulus provided
other tax cuts for people of
modest means, including a
break for college tuition.)
The economy has been grow-
ing, however feebly, for five
straight quarters. Most of
the TARP loans have been
repaid and the rest soon will
be, plus a modest profit for

the Treasury. And the num-
ber of illegal immigrants
fell by close to a million last
year, thanks in part to more
energetic border enforce-
ment. The health-care law,
the nonpartisan Congressio-
nal Budget Office says, will
bring the deficit down."
Did voters consider this
or even know as so many
marked Republican straight
down the ballot? It's likely
not, since I heard on several
occasions, "I voted Republi-
can straight down because
they are the only ones who
can get us out of debt."
Have these voters consid-
ered their elephant enthusi-
asm gave power to the party
which transformed budget
surpluses into budget defi-
cits, who also propose to in-
flate the debt by hundreds

tax cut for the least needy 2

25 percent of the national
Like Rick Scott, who
spent over $50 million of
his own money to become
Florida's new governor, just
in time for his fraudulent-
ridden multi-billion dollar
healthcare company to fight
healthcare reform. Addition-
ally, Scott has pledged not
to take a salary as Florida's
governor. Sure, there's no
fly in that ointment. Every
good businessman puts up
$50 million, declines a sal-
ary, and plans to get noth-
ing in return but the warm,
fuzzy feeling from doing
public service.

So as Scott and other mas-
ters of saying what the public
wants to hear ride into office
on their great big elephant,
they can smile and wave at
all us voters--the ones who
didn't fact-check, the ones
who didn't examine the ef-
fects or plausibility of their
promises, the ones who got
complacent--and think to
themselves, "Who's the don-
key now?"

El Mercado keeps it simple

The recently opened El
Mercado, located on U.S. 90
in DeFuniak Springs across
from Regions Bank is now
plating fresh Mexican fare,
friendly service, and a touch
of nostalgia.
Entering El Mercado, a
dozen or so tables sit to the
right by a wall lined with
a drink cooler and some
shelves offering wares. To
the left, a cash register.
The simplicity of design is
carried over to its menu,
offering burritos, tacos, en-
chiladas and other favorites
typical of Mexican restau-

recipe, using sugar rather table, with a meager dish of

and just salty enough (I sus-
pect the tortillas are cut into
strips and fried in-house),
and although the salsa had
a subtle kick, enough to sur-
prise the tongue without
alienating those with mild-
er taste buds, it was watery
and impossible to keep on
the chip from dip to lips.
With the place to myself
at one in the afternoon, I
chose the taco and burrito
with rice and beans lunch
special, which at $6.49 and
non-inclusive of a drink is a
bit pricey for our area. Set-
tling on an old-fashioned
glass bottle of Coke ($1.99)
from the cooler, I merrily
sipped away, reminded of
days spent at my grand-
mother's deli where a vin-

tage Coke box offered only
glass bottles. Liter bottles
of Sprite, Pepsi and special-
ty Mexican sodas are avail-
able as well.
A short time later, a small
burrito and taco arrived with
the generous offer of any-
thing else I needed. Pulled
chicken, seemingly unmari-
nated, lettuce, tomato, sour
cream, and beans were piled
into a flour tortilla, flanked
by rice and refried beans.
Although the portions are
smaller than typical Mexi-

The Soap Pedaler

visits DFS Garden Club.

The DeFuniak Springs
Garden Club got up to some
good clean fun on Wednes-
day, Nov. 3 as The Soap
Pedaler Celeste Cobena vis-
ited the group. Cobena, a
Santa Rosa Beach resident,
demonstrated the process of
making homemade soap, a
hobby which has blossomed
into a business.
"I have been doing this
for about 12 years now,"
said Cobena. "Prior to mak-
ing my soap I had always
made Christmas candy and
I needed a hobby that would
not make me gain weight. I
had a book about soap-mak-

ing and decided to give it a
Since that first experi-
ment Cobena has honed her
soap-making skills and ac-
quired additional molds and
cutters to made the process
more conducive to selling
her product. She now sells
her soaps in local stores and
at the Farmer's Market at
Seaside. She also does a fair
amount of wholesale distri-
Cobena's business name
was derived from the fact
that she delivers her product
by bicycle when possible.
"I have been doing pretty
well at the farmer's mar-

ket," she said. "I ride my:
bike down there and have:
some fun with it."
As part of her presenta-
tion, Cobena made a large;
block of soap with lemon
grass, rosemary, lavender:
and orange fragrances.
"Celeste made a great
presentation today," said'
DFS Garden Club member:
Liz Sinclair. "This is learn-:
ing in a pleasurable setting:.
I think our members enjoy
having guest speakers and
having The Soap Pedaler
visit was a pleasure."

Even with a "Yes" face, the best answer can be "No"
By Ronnie McBray

There is an old story from
early America that found
Thomas Jefferson and a
number of his companions
attempting to cross a flooded
river. They were on horse-
back, but this did not make
the task easy. Each rider
plunged into the raging cur-
rent, man and animal fight-
ing not only to cross, but to
stay alive.
Another traveler one on
foot watched this group
navigate the waters. Fi-
nally, needing to get to the
other side himself, this man
asked the President to take
him across. Jefferson quick-
ly agreed and the two made
it safely to the other side.
Once across, one of the
men in Jefferson's party
asked the traveler why he
had selected the President
to carry him across. The
traveler was stunned. He
had no idea it was the Presi-

He simply answered: "All I

His was a 'Yes' face."
I try to keep a "Yes" face
when it comes to those

would disagree, I prob-

should. But while I tend to

a change or improvement
of character. It might be
the good fruit of love, joy,
peace, kindness, or self-con-

These gifts are better for us
than the more immature
things we crave, but they
are not always easy to re-
ceive from our Father.
But what choice do we re-
ally have? If we believe our
Father to do and give what
is best for us, then shouldn't
we trust him? If what God

wants for us is far better
than that anything we could
desire, shouldn't we give
up on the lesser things we
want? God still has a "Yes"
face even when he doesn't '
give us what we want. In
those times, he often gives
us what we need.

Freeport gets burned by Blue Devils

in last district game of '10 season

Holmes County capital-
ized on a string of turnovers
and penalties by Freeport's
football team to hand the
Bulldogs a 21-6 loss, their
first-and-only district defeat
of the season.
The Freeport squad
(now 7-2, 7-1), just a week
prior named the District
1-A champion following
a showdown with Baker,
turned the ball over seven
times before the final buzzer
(four by errant passes from
quarterback Dakota Davis
and three by fumbles) and
incurred 82 yards-worth
of penalties while earn-
ing 160 yards of offense on
the ground. The Blue Dev-
ils (6-3,5-3), on the other
hand, preferred to hand off
the ball to sophomore Kodi
Russ, who accounted for 173
yards of the team's total 212
yards in 32 carries. Neither

team set the world on fire
from a passing perspective,
as Davis put up 73 yards,
completing six passes in 19
attempts with one touch-
down in the final minutes of
the game, and Russ' broth-
er Ethan completed seven
passes in 10 attempts for a
total of 68 yards for the Dev-
Freeport's woes started
early in the first quarter,
with Davis throwing an in-
terception on the team's
first possession, though
the Bulldog defense held
the Devils to a third down,
drawing the punt. After tak-
ing the ball on their own 36-
yard line, the Dogs got three
straight first downs to put
Caleb McCormick in the end
zone with 2:40 left in the pe-
riod, though the apparent
touchdown was reversed on
a holding call, which put the
offense back to the 23. Im-

mediately afterward, Free-
port got hit with an illegal
procedure penalty followed
by a second intercepted
pass, this time by Kodi Russ
on the 17-yard line.
The Bulldogs had yet
another illegal procedure
called on them to start the
second quarter and Davis
once again threw an in-
terception, which Holmes
County's Russ brothers and
Brandon White turned into
a drive to the four-yard line.
While Freeport managed to
temporarily halt the Devils'
advance, Ethan Russ dove
across the line for a one-yard
touchdown on a third-and-
goal play with 4:05 left un-
til halftime. The extra point
secured, Holmes County led
Freeport 7-0.
Upon taking possession
of the ball, Freeport's Owen
Cole (who led the Bulldogs
in rushing with 88 yards),

THE FINAL DISTRICT GAME of Freeport's season proved to be a challenging one for
sophomore quarterback Dakota Davis, who completed seven of 20 pass attempts and threw
four interceptions. Coach Jim Anderson said while Davis struggled in the game, his overall
performance throughout the season showed a steady improvement. (Photo by Reid Tucker)

ran for a 15-yard gain but
that was cancelled out when
Freeport was slapped with
a 15-yard unsportsmanlike
conduct penalty. The Devils
scored again on a 12-yard
run from Kodi Russ with
1:21 remaining after his
teammate Timothy Benton
caught a third wayward
pass from Davis. Now down
14-0, Freeport fumbled the
ball out of the snap, which
allowed Holmes County to
get within striking distance
of the end zone, though the
Bulldogs' Caleb McCormick
came down with an inter-
ception of his own as the
buzzer sounded on the half.
Having already turned
the ball over five times by
the end of the first half, the
Bulldogs needed to quickly
regain their footing if they
were to come away with
their as-yet unstained dis-
trict record intact, but two
more penalties at the start
of the third put Freeport
back on its own 21, forcing a
punt to the Holmes County's
45. The Devils scored again
after an exhausting 11-play
assault, with Russ making
another one-yard dive across
the goal line followed a good
point after at 4:05. Freeport
looked primed to even the
playing field on the subse-
quent possession, as Cole
and Brandon Head took the
ball all the way to the three
on four first downs, though
this was also thwarted when
the ball was dislodged in the
end zone and recovered by
the Devils' Jordan Segers
for a touchback to round out
the period.
Holmes County played
keep-away with the Bull-
dogs for the majority of the
final quarter. It took Free-
port until the closing min-
utes of the game to score a
touchdown, as Nick Elling-
ton caught a 24-yard pass
in the end zone (the extra
point attempt proved a strict
no-joy). With just 2:35 left

in the game, neither team
had the momentum to score
again, and Holmes County
took the win 21-6.
Freeport coach Jim An-
derson minced no words
about the cause of his
team's defeat, laying blame
on the turnovers, avoidable
penalties, missed blocks
and missed opportunities
to make up ground on of-
fense. However, he pointed
out that none of these errors
were "big mistakes on their
own, they just turned into
big problems," thanks to
an opportunistic and physi-
cal Holmes County team.
Anderson said the Bulldogs

will have their work cut out
for them in practice if they
are to regain their compo-
sure in time for the first
round of the state playoffs
when Freeport hosts Liberty
County in two weeks' time.
"[Holmes County] earned
the win, there's no doubt
about it," Anderson said.
"We've got all the elements,
now we've just got to put
them together. In cases like
this you either get better or
you get worse. You never
stay the same. We've got to
get better in the next two
weeks if we want to be com-
petitive. We do not want to
be a one-and-done team."

High school football report Week 10

Pensacola Catholic re-
ceiver Devin Dukes scored
both of the Crusaders' touch-
downs, the last rallying the
visiting team to a 14-7 win
over Chipley. Dukes caught
a 42-yard pass from quarter-
back Shaun White with 7:25
left in the game to help the
Crusaders overcome a 7-6
deficit with Marquis Sum-
ler adding a two-point con-
version run for a 14-7 lead

as they finished the district
slate with a 3-0 record, im-

proving to 9-0 overall head-
ing into their final game at

Freeport's boys and South Walton's girls

progress to regional cross country meet

Freeport's Michael Gra-
ziani led the Bulldogs to a
fourth-place team finish at
the Class A district 1 cross
country meet while Alex
Weiner did the same for
South Walton's girls' team
at the Class 2A meet.
Graziani and teammate
Dalton Morrison, with over-
all finishes of second and
12th, respectively, placed
high enough at the district
meet, held Thursday, Nov.
4, at Maclay in Tallahassee
to secure a spot for the Bull-
dogs at the regional meet,
which is set for Nov. 12 at
Oak Hall School in Gaines-
ville. Freeport trailed third
place Aucilla Christian by
just one point, and Gra-
ziani's time of 17:19.34 on
a wet five-kilometer course
was just 1.76 seconds be-
hind first place finisher and
defending champ Patrick

Swain of Maclay. Neverthe-
less, other than Graziani,
the top five podium finishes
all belonged to Maclay run-
Freeport coach David
Burke said that his team
would have to place in the
top 16 at regionals in or-
der to advance to state, and
Graziani, Freeport's sole in-
dividual qualifier, will need
to finish in the top-15 out of
a 100-plus-runner field to
advance. Burke said Gra-
ziani is expected to make it
through the regional meet
as he has in the past, espe-
cially considering that he
very nearly beat out Swain
when they faced off in Tal-
"I believe that if Michael
had just 10 more yards of
track to run on he could have
had [Swain]," Burke said. "If
he can do as well as he did
last year he should qualify
for state. We're counting on

Freeport's girls finished
eighth, failing to qualify for
the regional meet. Sixth-
place Rocky Bayou Christian
beat the Lady Dogs out by
just nine points in the team
competition. The top run-
ner among Freeport's girls
was Hollie Urquhart, who
finished in 33rd spot overall
with a time of 25:20.89.
The South Walton girls'
cross country team also
earned a berth to the Class
2A regional meet in Talla-
hassee with a fourth place
finish in Marianna in the
District 1-2A meet on Nov.
6. Jacob Leuze and Tristan
LaNasa both qualified as
individuals for the regional
boys' meet for the Seahawks.
The boys' team, which had to
do without two of its top five
runners, finished seventh
overall and was beaten out
of qualifying for the regional
meet by only 22 points, said

South Walton coach Greg
The regional meet will
take place at Sunnyside
Farms in Tallahassee on
Saturday, Nov. 13, with the.
top six teams and individu-
als advancing to the state
meet the following week.
Alex Weiner was the top
finisher on the girls' side
with a time of 20:43 while
Jacob Leuze was the top fin-
isher on the boys' side with
a time of 16:49.
Niemiec said the regional
meet will prove a crucible
for the girls' team, which
has advanced to the state
competition for the past two
"We have a chance but
we've got to really perform,"
he said. "It's a pretty tough
region for the girls and
they'll have to be at their
absolute best if they want to
go to state for the third year
in a row."

The Walton Braves football team last won a playoff game
six years ago as Frank Sorrells' squad defeated Tallahas-
see Florida High 20-13. Josh Nettles and Martin Baldwin
each scored touchdowns as the Braves defeated the Semi-
noles despite not throwing a single pass during the contest.
Nettles ran 77 yards for the first score of the game, then in-
tercepted a pass to set up Baldwin's 55-yard touchdown run
for a 20-7 lead in the fourth quarter. Florida High scored
with two minutes to go to cut the lead to 20-13 but Walton
was able to pick up two first downs on the next possession
to run out the clock and claim one of their two playoff victo-
ries during the decade. Nettles finished the night with 155
yards on the ground while Baldwin added 143 yards.

for everyone." Myers, a local
nationally recognized power
lifter and body builder, said
in an e-mail. "I cannot pre-

"Now Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down,
we're open for business."
Bryan Zar
Co-owner, Restaurant des Families
Crown Point, LA

I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife, Brooke, and I bought it.
We were working hard to build a business, then the spill hit. BP said they would try to
make things right. But how was an energy company going to help our restaurant?

Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they would tell us to take a number and wait in line.Instead, they asked
us if we could serve food to the workers,engineers,, scientists, and local residents they
had hired to cleanup the spill. It kept us busy round the clock. And we weren't the only
ones. They hired a lot of local businesses and kept a lot of people working. They have
kept businesses up and down the Gulf open and it's still making a difference.

Open for Business
BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed. Our restaurant's open
six days a week. Customers are filling our restaurant again and we think it's a good
time to come down to the Gulf Coast. And if we could make just one request, please
think of us when planning your next vacation. We're still here and while it's been
tough, we are still cooking. And we are just one of the hundreds of great places
ready to welcome you when you come down. So don't wait. We're looking forward
to seeing you.

For assistance, please call:
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858
