Boo-Mania sweeps area


Everybody loves Boo!
Boo Weekley, a 1992 Mil-
ton graduate, who went 2-0-
1 as the United States won
the Ryder Cup this past Sat-
urday in Louisville, Ky., for
the first time since 1999 will
be visiting Talladega, Ala.,
on Oct. 5.
Weekley has been select-
ed as the Honorary Starter
for the AMP Energy 500 at
Talladega Superspeedway.
"We are very excited to
have Boo serve as the Honor-


ary Starter,"
way President
Rick Hum-
phrey in a
press release.
"I think it was
evident to ev-
eryone that
watched the

Ryder Cup just how much
patriotism and enthusiasm
he has for this great coun-
try of ours. He's the kind of
person we like to get for our
honorary positions, someone
who adds even more excite-

ment to an already exciting
Weekley, who could not
be reached by the Press Ga-
zette following Sunday's
16-1/2 to 11-1/2 win over the
European squad at Valhalla
Golf Club, was excited about
the honor according to a re-
lease from Talladega Super-
"I can't believe I'm actu-
ally going to wave the green
flag at Talladega," exclaimed
Weekley. "I have actually
been to a race there before
and it was so much fun to
be in the middle of all those

fans. It's going to be intense
to see all those cars come
roaring past at 200 mph, I
can't wait!"
Weekley, who is current-
ly ranked No. 17 on the PGA
Tour Money list, posted a
team victory in Saturday's
four-balls competition with
teammate J.B. Holmes and
a singles victory over Oliver
Wilson on Sunday 4 and 2.
On Monday, the Univer-
sity of West Florida Men's
Golf squad announced that
Weekley donated $30,000
to the University of West

Weekley donated
$100,000 to Camp Compass
Academy, which is support-
ed by his yearly golf tourna-
ment and his sponsor Mossy
Oak, as well as donating
$30,000 each to UWF, Abra-
ham Baldwin Agricultural
College, and the University
of Alabama.
Another $10,000 was
donated by Weekley to the
Patriot Golf Day/Folds of
Honor Foundation.
The Folds of Honor Foun-
dation is a legacy founda-
tion designed to provide
educational scholarships for

dependents and spouses of
service members who are ei-
ther killed or disabled while
serving and defending our
Last year alone the foun-
dation raised $1.1 million for
scholarships for families of
veterans who have been in-
jured or perished in the line
of duty in Iraq or Afghani-
Besides his wins this past
weekend in the Ryder Cup,
Weekley owns two career
PGA Tour victories in 2007
and 2008 at the Verizon Her-
itage in Hilton Head, S.C.

Festival for families

Saturday the Pace Area
Chamber of Commerce en-
joyed a huge day with their
second annual Family Festival
held at the Pace Water Sys-
tem Nature Preserve. Area
businesses and residents
turned out in droves to enjoy
many different activities, food,
music, and some dancing.

Home Depot helping Ike relief efforts


On Monday morning at 6
a.m., employees at the Pace
Home Depot embarked on
the second phase of a hur-
ricane relief project.
A bus loaded with asso-
ciates and managers left the
Highway 90 location in Pace
and made its way to Pensa-
cola to collect more Home
Depot employees for the re-
lief mission.
Dan Schulte, the store
manager at the Pace loca-
tion, says the district sent

a total of 55 associates and
salaried managers to Orange
and Beaumont in Texas.
"This is actually the sec-
ond wave. We, the district,
sent 47 associates on the
first wave to Texas. Half of
the employees were dropped
off at the first location in
Orange, Texas, and then the
other half went to the other
location that was two and
a half hours away in Beau-
mont," he says.
"The first wave of the
hurricane relief team got
back in last night and the
second wave left out this

morning. I expect they will
be back on Sunday night
and there is discussion about
sending a third wave," says
Hurricane Ike made land-
fall on the morning of Sep-
tember 13, 2008. The eye of
Hurricane Ike approached
the Texas coast near Galves-
ton Bay, making landfall at
2:10 a.m. CDT over the east
end of Galveston Island.
"The devastation from
Hurricane Ike is widespread
and we are moving quickly
to help the residents affected
by the storm," said Kelly

Caffarelli, president of The
Home Depot Foundation.
"In addition to meeting the
immediate needs of our as-
sociates and communities,
we are also supporting the
longer-term efforts by in-
vesting in organizations that
will rebuild these communi-
ties in a healthy, sustainable
The Home Depot closed
53 stores in the Houston,

area prior to Hurricane Ike

Judy Bense, 63, is the new
Interim President at the Uni-
versity of West Florida. She
was selected for the position
after the university's fourth
president, Dr. John C. Ca-
vanaugh, left to pursue an-
other opportunity as chancel-
lor of the Pennsylvania State
System of Higher Education
on July 1.
Bense has been with UWF
for over three decades.
"I have been with UWF
full-time since 1980, but.I
started as an adjunct (profes-
sor) in 1977 at the old Pan-
ama City branch campus of
UWF," Bense said. *
Bense says one of the
most important things she
brings to the job is that she

has Northwest Florida cul-
"I am a Northwest Florida
resident. I am not a trans-

farm in Panama City in 1951,
so we moved there from New

Bense received a master's
degree in anthropology from
Florida State University and
a doctorate in anthropology
from Washington State Uni-
Under her direction, the
program at UWF became

Jernigan has served eight
years on the city council, but
prior to that he was involved a
great deal with the city of Mil-
"Words cannot express
the gratitude we have for the
service George has given this
city and council," said Milton
Mayor Guy Thompson. "Be-
fore becoming a city commis-

boards and became a source
of strength not only to the city,
but to the council as well.

for Milton and a first class job

Mayor Guy Thompson. "But

Local Man Prevails In Scuffle

With Hoodlums
BEXAR COUNTY- Tom W., after using Thera-Gesic'
on a sore left shoulder, encountered two hoods break-
ing into a car in a parking lot. He whacked one of them
upside the head and ran them off. When asked why he
took the risk, he painlessly replied:
S"None of your dang business!"

Monday, 8:39 a.m.
How about if the Press
Gazette puts down how
much money the fire depart-
ments are getting per district
from the MSBU's. Seems
nobody knows. I would like
to know how much Harold,
Allentown, Pace, and the
other districts get. Let us

Sunday, 4:52 p.m.
Hey this is Tom. Re-
gardng Our View about lets
build a wall around them.
I am calling about where
in my comment did I say
all non-locals should pack
up and leave. I have noth-
ing against NAS Whiting
Field and isn't NAS Pensa-
cola outside of Santa Rosa
County. And what does my
comment have to do with
doctors and nurses. I didn't
say anything of the sort.


And regarding my family
tree you are right, they are
not from here.

Sunday, 3:35 p.m.
Hi this is Freda. I saw
someone driving a golf cart
in downtown Milton. What
a great idea to save on gas.
My only question is would
the city fine you if you were
involved in an accident on
a golf cart like they would
if you were in a car. Other-
wise, what a great idea and
I think others should use

Saturday, 3:17 p.m.
Yes we are going through
an election year. This is
John. If there is any school
board candidate against cor-
poral punishment, please
voice your view because you
have my support.

Saturday, 8:31 a.m.
Yes all these children
who need food when they
are at school but can't afford
it. They might be eligible for
free or reduced lunch, but
they say they are not quali-
fied. With all the food that
is thrown away everyday
by the school, why not give
a free lunch to everybody. I
work as a volunteer and I see
a lot of children throw food
away. My name is Maria.
Thank you.

Saturday, 6:46 a.m.
On the issue of Florida be-

ing a closed primary state. I
strongly agree with Mel that
Florida should be an open
primary state. Independent
voters in the primaries only
makes sense.

Thursday, 8:49 p .m.
Hey this is John. I read
in the paper about TEAM
Santa Rosa talking about
businesses coming to Santa
Rosa County. I would like
to know how much money
Santa Rosa Coutny is fun-
neling to them. How much
money are they spending
and how are they getting
it. Which businesses have
they brought in. I still think
that TEAM Santa Rosa is a
waste of our tax dollars.

NFPA urges residents to 'Prevent Home Fires'

j rri,, ,rpth ija: i;0 ,.:,n,

According to a news
release from Santa Rosa
County Public Information
Officer Joy Tsubooka, the
Santa Rosa County Fire-
fighters' Association and
local fire departments are
teaming up with the Na-
tional Fire Protection Asso-
ciation (NFPA) from Octo-
ber 5-11 to urge Santa Rosa
residents to "Prevent Home
Fires" during Fire Preven-
tion Week.
This year's campaign
focuses on preventing all
the leading causes of home
fires: cooking, heating and
electrical equipment, 'and

smoking materials.
According to the non-
profit National Fire Pro-
tection Association, "A
potholder too close to a lit
burner or a space heater left
on overnight could be all it
takes to start a home fire.
In fact, cooking and heat-
ing are among the leading
causes of home fires in the
United States."
The latest research from
NFPA finds more than 2,500
people died in home fires in
the United States in 2006,
and 12,500 were injured.
Fire departments respond-
ed to 396,000 home fires,
which accounted for 81) per-
cent of civilian deaths and
76 percent of injuries that

Reviewing the following
information and taking ac-
tion can help you "Prevent
Home Fires" during Fire

Barbara Smith, CLL President chats with waiting students. Pictured are Mariann Coil (from
left), Wynfred Garrett, Doris Garrett, Judy Durham & Jackie Kramer. Jackie told us that
she is usually first in line, but this time she slept a little later and didn't get there until 7:05.

CLL students line up for sign up

At 7 a.m. students were
already waiting in lines remi-
niscent of their "rock concert"
days. But this time they were
lined up to register for classes
offered by Center for Lifelong
Learning, at the UWF/NWFL
The Center for Lifelong
Learning was established in
1993 to provide interesting
educational activities for per-
sons who believe that learn-
ing ever ends. The courses
offered (between 60 75) en-
compass awide spectrum of
topics. There is the Adventure
Club, Birdwatching and Gar-
dening to explore the outer

space and Space, the Final
Frontier, which is really outer;
there are philosophy classes,
health classes, and decorating
classes to explore inner space;
and lots of computer classes
to explore cyber space. You'll
find several language classes,
history classes, bridge and
dance classes.
In short, there is something
for everyone who wants to
learn. All teachers are volun-
teers with expertise in their
areas as a result of either ca-
reer experience or a lifelong
hobby. There are two annual
semesters of 8 weeks each,
beginning in January and

Most classes meet at the
UWF/NWFL campus or Troy
University campus in Ft Wal-
ton. But several are held at
other locations in the commu-
nity. Enrollment Fee is $40,
for which a student may take
up to four classes. Additional
classes are $10 each.
In addition to the educa-
tional classes, CLL activities
include local social events,
out-of-town trips, and a series
of Noontime speakers on sub-
jects of current interest.

tain more information on the

A parent was inside the newspaper office
Friday and it was hilarious hearing this person
talk about the e-mail they received alerting them
to the fact mid-term grades were coming out.
The email noted they should check their child's
Gone are the days of working for the entire
nine-week grading period. Now, society is
so concerned that the system must send out a
progress report in the middle of the semester.
Makes you wonder what happened to a parent
sitting down with a child and checking their
homework or going over it with them before
A child goes to school to learn, but school is
not the only place they learn, or is it?
Apparently, some lessons are not being taught
at school any more. Instead, some of life's
lessons are now being taught on the streets.
Parents have to work mor e because of the need
to keep up with inflation and the child ends up
learning from someone else.
This cycle, unfortunately, will continue if we
don't watch it. Remember the commercial of the
parent confronting their child when marijuana
was found in their room? The parent was visibly
angry and demanded, "Where did you get this?
Who taught you to use this stuff?"
While the child sat quietly, the parent
continued with the inquisition.
Suddenly, the child responded: "You! I learned
it from watching you, okay!"
They learned it from Watching us.
What else are children learning from us today
that we don't actually realize?
Throwing a fit or threatening someone's job if
they don't get their way?
Parents should not be so quick to pass blame.
If the fault is their own, then own itand let the
child learn about takingresponsibility for their
Too often, we end up teaching the way to get
ahead in life is to find a way to sue someone.
The cycle must stop.
We often see adult parents "booing" children
when they are on the sports field.
When we say it, it seems hard to imagine,
but these folks are not calling out a sighting of
Milton's Boo Weekley. They are actually booing
a teenager trying their hardest to play a game.
We often set a similarly bad example when
it comes to looking out for ourselves and our
community by not exercising our right to elect
our leaders.
The lesson we teaching extends all the way
to the school having to send out an e-mail to us
concerning mid-term grade reports.
As a society, we have become too busy to care
about what some now consider "the little things."
We must slow down our lives, just a bit, to
make room for our children. Oh, parents still go
to junior's ballgame, but look across the stands
and you'll see most parents "text messaging" or
talking on the cell phone-spending more time
with the phone than paying attention to the game
they are attending.
And after the game what is the discussion
"Did you have fun? Did you try your hardest?
I am proud of the effort you gave."
Unfortunately, no.
Instead, we criticize the coach's decision
and run them down for who they played in a
particular position.
We are teaching our children at home, but
maybe it's all the wrong things.

Response to ACLU
Katherine G. Mor-

the ACLU demands a re-
sponse. Her attitude ne-
glects history and ignores
the Constitution. Since 53
Christians and three other
God fearing people signed
the Declaration of Inde-

nation predominantly of
Christian Religions. Our
government has had poli-
cies that support religion in
schools. Congress declared
in the Northwest Territo-
ries Ordinance that, "Edu-
cation and Religion being
essential to good govern-
ment, school shall be en-
couraged.. ." Federal funds
have bene used to establish
and maintain Catholic and
Protestant Indian schools.
The Supreme Court ac-
knowledged in the Trinity
case that this is a Chris-
tian nation and in my own
school days during the 30's,
school began each morning
with the Lord's prayer and
pledge of allegiance. All of
these religious underpin-
nings helped make us the
greatest nation on earth.
Since WWII we have
seen an active ACLU and
activist judges ban prayer

from school. And we
have watched promiscuity
among students become
pandemic. Disrespect for
rules, lying, cheating, and
stealing are regarded by
many as legitimate life
A retired Naval officer,
I have seen this change as
a substitute teacher in our
county. Morgan is advocat-
ing a continuation of this
drifting anchor in order
that a minority of objecting
students not be offended by
something that appeals to a
higher order, but does not
fit with the spoiled notion
that life owes them confor-
mity to what they want.
I have never seen a stu-
dent forced to kneel and
pray. This would offend
Christians that I know.
Yet Morgan and the ACLU
would have the government
point its law enforcement
gun to the heads of Chris-
tians saying, "The Consti-
tution's assurances of self
determination through ma-
jority rule are ended. We
will have minority rule and
you are denied your first
amendment right to the
free exercise of religion."
That right, incidentally,
carries none of the restric-
tions that may be found in
some other 'rights iri the

Constitution. It is absolute
by intent of God and the
founding fathers.
I have periodically taken
and oath to defend the Con-
stitution against all enemies
both foreign and domestic.
The ACLU is establishing
itself as the domestic en-
emy of the Constitution.


Crucifixion by pundits
Sarah Palin is being
crucified by so-called
pundits. They should shut
their mouths! Republican
presidential nominee John
McCain thinks he picked
her. I believe God hand-
picked her for such a time
as this. A woman who fears
(honors, respects) God,
potentially in the White
House, for God to restore
His hand of protection, is
what America needs. We
sing (My County 'Tis of
Thee) "Protect us by they
might..." Almighty God
will guide and direct a
leader who declares de-
pendence on Him. Palin is
The liberal media and
the arrogant, insolent Joe
Biden should shut theirs
too! The pot calling the

kettle black criticizes Mc-
Cain's years in office. What
about his?.
He and the Democratic-
controlled Congress wasted
taxpayers money:
$2-million, for brown
tree snakes.
$1,117,125 for cricket re-
$1,529,220 for a fruit re-
search facility
$295,470 for the Inter-
national Peace Garden in
Dunseith, ND
$211,000 for olive fruit
fly research in Paris
How does the above
grab you? In 2008 total
pork spending was $17.2
billion, up 30-percent from
2007! Shame, shame!
Obama plans spending
billions more on big gov-
McCain pledges to veto
every wasteful spending
measure. He has the track
record of fighting waste
to back it up. It's time to
take our money back. Can
anybody doubt that God is
Americas only hope and
we should all declare our
dependence on him.
We don't deserve it, but
God bless us one and all as
only He can!

A line of bikes makes the turn near Santa Rosa Fresh Riverwalk Farmer's Market on
their winding route through historic parts of Milton. Bikers were trying to answer clues
to puzzles regarding historic sites on the route for chances to draw the best hand of
cards in the Second Annual Swamp Angels Poker Run.

The 2nd Annual Swamp
Angels Heritage Poker Run
took place on Saturday and
featured live performances
by "Hard Labor", "Rip-

as well as a Lighted Boat
Parade featuring the Black-
water Pyrates.
Participants rode in the
event to support and in-
crease awareness about the
city. Bikers traveled a route
that took them through 100

miles of historic sites.
Kim Cato, program
manager for Main Street
Milton said, "The event is
dedicated to downtown re-
vitalization, historic pres-
ervation and a pedestrian-
friendly environment."
Bikers were expected to
solve puzzles about seven
historic sites along the
way. Each rider was issued
a sheet of paper that had
questions about the' histor-
ic sites along the route and
was allowed a card draw
for each correct answer. A

one hundred dollar prize
went to the rider with the
best hand at the end of the

Community Pride Winners u wlQl
TnD-F -

The Milton Garden Club
honored Tom and Liz Wil-
son this month with the
September Community
Pride Award. The Wilsons
have waterfront property
.on Bayou Drive in East
-,Milton which they have
improved since they moved
there ten years ago. They
rebuilt their historic home
and separate cottage, built
in 1924 as well.
Visitors enter through a
crisp white fence flanked
by windmill palms. Stories
say that the home was built
on the site of an old Indian
,campground. Liz pointed
Sut a large hickory tree and
Explained how the local Na-
ti e Americans would boil
the hickory nuts for oil.
Nearby, are raised beds
.*pf asparagus, raspberries,
" herbs and perennials along
. side a nicely built chicken
house, with chickens of
'course, and a nifty pot-
"'ting bench built by Tom.
A stately pergola laden
.heavily with lush Virginia
creeper faces the river. A

Garden Club member Zee Christopher and Liz Wilson
are shown in front of their award winning landscape.

good place to sit and watch
the water move lazily by.
Not too long ago rainwa-
ter flowed down hill to the
river, through the property,
depositing sediments on
the old home and disrupt-
ing the lay of the land.
This was rectified after
the home was completed
and the landscape changed.
The long gravel drive al-
lows drainage that a paved
drive would not. Planting

beds placed just so alter the
flow of water as well. To-
day the drainage problem
is a thing of the past due to
Tom and Liz Wilson's good
stewardship of the land.
They have designed a love-
ly property in Milton.
The Garden club also
gave the Community Pride
Award to a business this
month. One can ask, "Can
a car wash have an attrac-

tive landscape?" The Mil-
ton Garden Club thinks
so. They have selected The
Local Car Wash, on Hwy.
90 in East Milton for the
award. Owners Claude and
Melanie Duvall take great
pride in their business.
They have a policy of
keeping the property clean,
green and the car wash in
excellent condition.
Mr. Duvall planned
the landscape himself and
participated in much of
the actual planting. Thir-
ty healthy trees, an en-
viable lawn, shrubs and
palms grace the car wash
grounds. The couple shows
concern for their customers
by including a picnic spot
out back on the lawn under
the shade of trees.
The Duvalls are known
around town for their com-
munity involvement, which
includes supporting soft-
ball and T ball teams.
The Milton Garden Club
salutes both the Wilsons
and the Duvalls for beauti-
fying our community.

For 38 years Mrs. Betty Bamberg, wife of the late
Baptist Minister Dr. Joe Bamberg, served as First
Lady at First Baptist Church of Milton, shouldering
without complaint the awesome responsibilities
that go with being the partner of a successful
church pastor. Her late husband, "Brother Joe",
.,. always said that his career and accomplishments
would never have materialized without the partici-
Spation and influence she contributed to the relation-

Growing up in North Carolina, Betty says she
never had any design or aspiration to become a
minister's wife, but Fate guided the events that
eventually led to one of the most successful mar-
Betty Bamberg riages ever told. She met him while he was a young
travelling evangelist whose party needed a piano
player, and the relationship materialized from there. The young lady who played the piano for
them in the travelling tabernacle, got rave reviews from her husband who later said, "She is a
good musician. Anyone who can play the original score of Handel's Messiah has got to be a good
Musician, and she could do that!"

They were married while he was in the seminary at Ft. Worth, Texas, and over the years they
raised a family of three children: Robert "Widge", the first son born in 1947; Tim, the second son
born in 1951; and Barry, a daughter born in 1955.

Brother Joe always had loving things to say about his wife, comments with which those who
know her will readily agree. He characterized her as "...a most unusual woman, completely
unselfish, very sensitive, and blessed with a great source of common sense." Betty, who studied :
Music at Bob Jones University, was always available to play both the piano and organ. She has
been instrumental in church affairs and is just a choice individual, Brother Joe said, an assessment
with which we must forthwith concur. .,.. ,

Betty is no longer as active as she used to be, but she's still a high profiled individual in the com-
munity, a lady of immense wisdom, experience, and knowledge that from time to time comes in
handy for those who seek her counsel and guidance. We salute her not only for what she is today,
but for what she has contributed to this community in the past, and for the insight that she contin-
ues to share with those who seek her out. Thanks, Betty, for being there for us, and with us, over
the years, and for being the mentor that we can still look up to, and pattern our lives after.

Cross country

season in

."full swing

Bill Gamblin I Press Gazette
Milton quarterback Mike McMillion scampers for'a huge game during the first drive of the game to give
the Panthers a-7-0 leave over the Washington Wildcats.

Milton wins catfight


Milton needed two huge offen-
sive drives to notch their first win of
the season over Washington at home
The big drive came as the Pan-
thers were down 12-7 as they took
control of the ball at their own 49-
yard line.
The Panthers (1-2) used quick
passes from quarterback Mike Mc-
Million to his receivers as they
marched the ball down to the Wild-
cats' 30-yard line.
That is when McMillion handed
the ball off to Patrick Lloyd who
rumbled 30 yards for the winning
touchdown with 3:13 left in regula-
Drew Winkles point after was no
good, but it wasn't necessary as the
Panthers held on for their first win of
the season.
Lloyd who led all Panthers with:
77 yards rushing was all smiles.
"I was suppose to take it to the
outside," said Lloyd. "But I saw ani
opening and cut it back. From there
all I saw was green grass."
Milton also showed the same of-
fensive might in the opening drive
of the game as the offensive line and

Panthers' passing attack smacked
the bigger city kitty around to take
an early 7-0 lead.
"That was a battle," said Milton
head coach Mike McMillion after
the game. "When these two teams
play it is always physical.
"Tonight we had a few miscues,
but our defense rose up to the chal-
lenge and our offense rose to the oc-
casion as well."
In the opening drive, Mike Mc-
Million picked apart the Wildcats
defense with short passes of no more
than nine yards while going 5-for-6
on the drive that was capped by the
longest pass of the drive, a 12-yard
strike in the end zone to Eddie Lynn.
Chris Baldwin added the point after
to make it 7-0 with 6:52 remaining.

Million was referring to during the
game-was like the fumble on special

Now Milton will have to continue
their work as they hope to make it
two wins in a row before returning
home to face Choctaw on Oct. 3.
"These guys have been work-
ing hard every practice," said coach
Mike McMillion. "They have been
showing up to work everyday and
not getting a paycheck.
"Tonight we got a pay check."
On the evening Milton had 239
total yards with 160 yards on the
ground via 30 carries.
Mike McMillion went 11ll-of-20
for 73 yards.
Washington had only 141 yards of
total offense with 100 of those yards
coming on 38 carries.

Denny. "I'm very proud of
their progress and work
"The running workouts

while freshman Rylee Hart

Pace head coach Clint

possibilities this year.
"This is the strongest,
most powerful team we have

Both teams battled back

to the championship game.
But the Crusaders were
on a quest to play one more
game at home, the champi-
o',onship game.
With the score tide 14-
14, the Crusaders started the
winning drive at its 30-yard
line with 1:35 on the clock.
That would prove to be

King on a fly route for the
winning score.
William Powell would

This win sets up a third
game between the Crusaders
and the Wolfpac, two teams
who are very familiar with
each other.
Pensacola won the first
game of the season 30-12 as
the game was marred by for-

broken leg.

the Gulf Coast Pirates drove
the ball down the field to tie
the score at 6-6 after its ex-

On the next Crusaders
drive, Smith dialed up King
