UPGRADES AND ADDITIONS to the Lakeyard include this beautiful fountain made possible by a private donation by Thomas Smart in memory of his wife, Mary B. Smart, to the city of DeFuniak Springs. The fountain is already operational, but was turned off during the freezing temperatures gripping the local area this week. DeFuniak Springs Assistant City Manager William “Bill” Holloway told the Herald/Breeze “We still have a little ways to go with the improvements and additions. We hope to be finished by late February, depending on the weather.”
