    Well I guess Ms. Carter, Mr. Perkins, Mr. Robertson, and Mr. Garrett are all "fist pumping" each other right now. I am not in to all of the politics but because of these allegations I know that several Walton County children and Walton County businesses did without the benefit of the travel tournaments that use to be in Walton County when my children were the age. Mr. Perkins said that his phone was ringing off the hook for travel softball tourneys in Walton County. Not a single softball tourney has been played since the Commissioners allowed the parks to be rented. As far as the accusation of JB Athletics stealing $300k to $400k from Walton County, I don't believe in Socialism. If the money is out there to be made go work for it yourself. That is not stealing, that is democracy. Thank you for allowing me to comment. I hope the best for all involved. We all have to be judged one day.
