As a worker, one of the first questions a
person will ask is, "How much money
will I earn?"
The thing is that each job pays some-
thing different from the man or woman
who works on the sewer line to the person
who is responsible for public safety.
In today's economic downturn, the
wages of not only workers, but also those
elected to office have come into question,
especially with howit relates to the Federal
Poverty Level as it is according to the fed-
eral government.
This line is a measurement established
by the U.S. government stating poverty
is a lack of goods and services commonly

this, according to a survey taken by the
Santa Rosa Press Gazette.
According to numbers for 2009, those

United Way still striving for $264K goal


By MATHEW PELLEGRINO
mpellegrino @srpressgazette.com
To Kendra Parson, goals are al-
ways within reach.
In September, the newly ap-
pointed United Way campaign di-
rector set a goal only $1,000 less
than what was raised last year.
Sixty percent of the $264,000
objective has been raised this year
thanks to donations from around
the county.
The Santa Rosa County United


Way's funds are sitting a little under
where they were during this time
last year, but aren't far behind.
"It's not going as strong as it was
last year," Parson said. "We are fall-
ing in some areas, but without our
donors, we wouldn't be where we
are at right now."
A lot of what is keeping the
United Way from reaching their
goal is job worries, according to the
director. Jobless rates in the nation
recently hit 10 percent, a big jump
from where they were last year.


"People are worried about their
jobs," said Parson.
Jobless rates are still on the rise,
but according to Parson, corporate
matches are what will help the
non-profit hit its goal by the end of
the year. Parson said that paycheck
contributions have helped tremen-
dously, and corporate matches
have not been collected as of yet.
"We're hoping that the corpo-
rate matches come through by the
end of the year," Parson said.
With the campaign year almost


over, there are still events they plan
to contribute to. The Marine Corps
Toys for Tots program will be under
way soon, and Parson said there
will be more information available
as December draws near.
"We help facilitate the Toys for
Tots, and we're still in need of par-
ticipants," Parson said.
Those interested in Toys for
Tots are urged to contact the Unit-
ed Way by Dec. 1.

Either way you look at it,
nobody likes the long lines
at the Department of Motor
Vehicles.
No one likes to pick a
number; wait an hour; and
when they are called to the
counter, find out they don't
have the proper documents
to get what they need.
What many don't realize
is the Florida DMV has a
Web site and a phone line
that has helped provide
answers to any questions
a person might have before
they come in for a service.
DMVs also are looking for
ways to eliminate long lines
and waiting times.

Mavericks improve warrior skills with combatives training


By Sgt. JOHN STOLES
Special to the Press Gazette
BAGHDAD - A soldier
can't always depend on
marksmanship to survive on
the battlefield. Sometimes, a
soldier's only weapons are
hands, feet and a warrior's
determination.
Soldiers from the 1st Cav-
alryDivision'sSpecialTroops
Battalion tested their ability
to preserve themselves and
their battle buddies without
weapons, by engaging in
Level I combatives certifi-
cation to cap off a week of
training on Camp Liberty,
here, Nov. 13.
Two soldiers faced each
other in the middle of the
mat, while the other soldiers
erupted into cheers of en-
couragement.
Spc. Larisa Neskovic, a
medic from Jay, Fla., took
the role of the enemy. First
Lt. Aimee Feliz, a main sup-
ply platoon leader from Fair-
fax, Va., stepped up to fight
alone and without a weapon.


Once the two touched
fists to start the fight, Nes-
kovic immediately began to
pummel Feliz in the head.
Feliz struggled to hold Nes-
kovic in a clinch hold to
stop the blows as their deep
breaths became audible in
the room. Once Feliz finally
held Neskovic in one of the
three clinch holds required
for the course - the modi-
fied seatbelt, rear clench
and under hooks clench
- the match was over.
Such matches went on
for an hour, with male and
female soldiers 'all going
against each other, regard-
less of the size difference.
Soldiers who demonstrated
proficiency in the three
clench holds were awarded
the Level I certificate.
Sgt. 1st Class Matthew
Haynes, teaches unarmed
combatives up to Level III
for DSTB troops.
"What we try to bring
out in these soldiers is con-
fidence and the warrior
ethos," said Haynes. "I feel

pretty confident that they
can encounter the enemy on
the battlefield and totally fin-
ish the fight."
Haynes said Level I fo-
cuses on 13 core moves and
proficiency is determined
by the ability to perform the
three clenches. Level I certi-
fication requires 40 hours of
instruction spread out over
a week Soldiers who earn
their Level I certification


may advance to Level II.
Capt. Seth Gould, who
tuns the unarmed combat-
ives program, said hand-to-
hand fighting is intended to
be a contingency in case a
. soldier has td fight an enemy
alone, or without a weapon.
It is intended to preserve a
soldier on the battlefield un-
til reinforcements arrive.
"The guy that wins the
fight is the guy whose buddy


shows up first, and in the
Army, your buddy is never
far away," said Gould, a na-
tive of Covington, Ga.
Soldiers who earned
their Level I certification
said the training reminded
them of the Army Warrior
Ethos. Not giving up was the
key to staying alive, said Sgt.
Orianna Martinez, a supply
sergeant from Rutherford-
ton, N.C.
"I'm going to do every-
thing I can to keep the op-
ponent from taking me
down," said Martinez. "I feel
-like quitting is selfish. You
can't just give up." Martinez
said a realistic aspect of the
training was that opponents
of diverse sizes and shapes
were matched against each
other. In a real combat situ-
ation, a soldier would hot get
to pick the attacker. "It's not
the size or the fact that I'm
a female that matters," said
Martinez. "I'm a soldier; I'm
a warrior."
Spc. Orlando Garza, a
cook from Beeville, Texas,


accepted his certificate with
blood on his face from the
fighting. He said lessons he
learned in combatives will
help him as a Soldier.
"I learned that a warrior
never quits," said Garza.
"I'm more confident in my-
self and it will make me a
better Soldier."
In addition to teaching
fighting skills, the class also
helps prepare Soldiers for
the violence of hand-to-hand
combat.
"It teaches them not to
be afraid," said Gould. "You
don't want to see a soldier
get hit in the face the first
time in combat."
Regardless of military oc-
cupational specialty, soldiers
are warriors first and must
possess the fighting skills to
survive and defeat the en-
emy on the battlefield. The
sweat and blood that was
shed in the intense week-
long unarmed combatives
training may one day mean
the difference between life
and death for a warrior.


Street name ceremony honors former teacher


By MATHEW PELLEGRINO
mpellegrino@
srpressgazette.com
If it means a lot to get
your name put on a plaque,
imagine how Ethel Dixon
of Pace felt when she got a
street named after her.


' The former teacher who
taught at S.S. Dixon El-
ementary for 43 years was
recognized throughout the
county Wednesday as for-
mer students gathered to
congratulate the teacher
for her years of service
to the community. Susan


Hicks, Danny Rutherford,
and Frank Lay were just a
few who gathered to watch
Dixon receive her well
earned recognition.
Pace Chamber, the
First National Bank and
the County Board of Com-
missioner's sponsored the
dedication ceremony be-
side S.S. Dixon Elementary
and First National Bank on
Highway 90.
As if the sign wasn't al-
ready enough, Dixon was
awarded an honorary life-
time membership by the
Chamber of Commerce,
and Commissioner Jimmy
Williamson proclaimed
Nov. 4, 2009 to go down in
history as Ethel Dixon Day
in the county.


. "I'm glad she didn't quit
because of me," joked Wil-
liamson. "I'm just glad both
her and her husband have
done so much for this com-
munity."
' Dixon has resided in the
county with her husband
since 1931, and has been
recognized for her dedicat--
ed teaching skills through-
out her career. She won the
Teacher of the Year Award
from the county from 1978-
1979, and was awarded the
Pace Chamber's Pioneer
Award in 2008.
"I amn totally in shock,"
said Dixon about the dedi-
cation, "I appreciate every-
thing everybody has done
for me."
Frank Lay spoke at the


ceremony on behalf of the
Pace Chamber of Com-
merce and recognized
Dixon for her work in the
community.
"I have some heroes in
my life, and Sam (husband)
and Ethel Dixon are one
of them/' said Lay. "They
both have done so much for
Santa Rosa County."
After receiving the life-
time membership award,
Dixon made her way down
to the previously unnamed
road to cut the ribbon and
unveil her new street sign.
The road, which was pri-
vate before will still remain
a private side street, but
will now have a permanent
name.
Dixon's former student


and Frank Lay's daughter
Casey Lay attended the
dedication ceremony, and
all of her former students,
many of who still reside in
the county watched on as
the drape fell and unveiled
the new sign.
Nearly 30 members of
the community came out to
watch the unveiling as the
school she taught at for 43
years stood behind her.
Dixon, who is now an
honorary member of the
Chamber of Commerce
said she will continue to
serve her community as
she has done for most of
her life.
"I'm happy to be a part
of this community," said
Dixon.

A4I Santa Roas


DMV from page Al


open to the old fashion "walk-
in" policy.
The appointment strategy,
which went into effect years
ago, has helped lower the long
wait time at DMV offices.
The recent tax, tag and title
hike, which went into effect in
September, hit motorists hard,
and is now costing recipients
well over $400 to register a
new vehicle.
Out-of-state drivers are
even being asked to bring in
their original birth certificate
to grant themselves a Florida
license. So where does a birth
certificate come into play when
a person already has a valid
driver's license?
Dave Westberry, the com-
munications director at the
Florida Department of High-
way Safety and Motor Vehicles,
said the state has standard-
ized the process of renewing
and registering for a driver's
license for a long time.
"The Real I.D. Act stan-
dardized the way individual


states registered driver's li-
censes," Westberry said. "A
lot of states don't require proof
of residence, but Florida re-
quires you to present more
documents. It all varies state
to state."
Starting Jan. 1, the Florida
DMV is kicking off a new cam-
paign called Gather Go Get,
which informs customers of
the new renewal policy, which
will require broader identifica-
tion.'
The Web site, which is avail-
able at www.gathergoget.com,
gives people who are looking
to visit the DMV a list of items
to bring with them before they
head out the door.
"The Web site allows you to
make a checklist of the docu-
ments you will need prior to
* coming to the DMV," Westber-
ry said. ,
Despite the constant bad
reputation most people have
with the DMV, Westberry said
customer satisfaction has been
at an all time high.


"We do quarterly reports to
the government and cabinet
members, and we give them
statistical data on customer
satisfaction," Westberry said.
Westberry said he brought a
new report before the cabinet
on Tuesday, and the reports
were still extremely positive.
. "We've had 97 percent posi-
tive feedback, and we've been
able to do this for a long time,"
Westberry said.
One of the ways they have
driven up customer satisfac-
tion is through appointment
scheduling, which has saved
time and headaches.
"The idea of scheduling an
appointment is like scheduling
one at a doctor's office. It helps
us expedite customers faster
and' get them on their way,"
Westberry said. "It has been a
great way to manage folks."
Customers can still do the
typical walk-in, but. to save
time, anyone can call their lo-
cal DMV office or schedule an
appointment online.


As of now, the only thing
hurting customers is the tax,
tag and title hike that went into
effect in September. The price
to register a vehicle in the state
of Florida is now a whopping
$400, and that doesn't include
the price to obtain a license if
you are out of state.
Although the fee seems
high, Westberry said Florida
hasn't seen a hike in nearly 25
years, so this legislative deci-
sion just came as a surprise to
many.
"A lot of people were
shocked at the rate hikes, but
what many don't realize is the
state hasn't had one in about
25 years," Westberry said. "A
lot of people took advantage
of the existing rates before the
change came in September."
. And those who did saved
themselves about half off the
previous fee. Even with the
price jump, Westberry said
the DMV is doing all it can to
alleviate frustration levels and
keep the satisfaction rate up.

our operations."
The cost saving mindset could be
what the county needs as state funds
slowly begin to deplete. Goodin said
he is holding off on a lot of big projects,
such as the courthouse, until there is a
need for construction.
"After the significant expense the
county has put into expanding the cur-
rent courthouse, this is no longer a front
burner issue for me, particularly in this
economy," Goodin said.
Even the current bridge project that
has the Santa Rosa Historical Society
in a twist is butting heads with board
members, as the county is attempting
to move forward into financial recov-
ery.
Goodin said FDOT is conducting a
Preliminary Design and Environmental
Study, and the board is waiting for the
results before contemplating a decision
on the project.
"In my mind, it woujd be prudent
to wait for the results of this study,
and then make an informed decision,"
Goodin said. "Jumping to .conclusions
now could be hasty and wasteful."
Even with a long road ahead of him,
Goodin said his job is rewarding, and he
is looking forward to his new role.
"The sense of fulfillment from the job
is tremendous," Goodin said. "You meet
a wide variety of people with a wide va-
riety of interests."

SALARIES from page Al


Even the mayor of Milton
falls below this level at $8,358.
Others close to this pov-
erty level is a city of Milton
sewer operator at $19,656
and a county road worker at
$19,683; a county secretary
makes $20,680 a year.
Allen wasn't the only one
shocked at the numbers.
"What stands out to me
is the head honchos are get-
ting the largest pay," Mark
Viau said. 'And it is sad to
see workers like those in the
sewer department and such
linking so little."
Viau and fellow PJC stu-
dent Eddie Beard were won-
dering how the city employ-
ees pay would rate against
those who do a similar job in
the private sector.
"I am very interested to
see how someone who does
this for a private company
gets paid," Beard said. "I
sometimes wonder what
would happen if some of this
at times was done by the pri-
vate sector." ,
The highest salary in
2009 for the city, county and
school jobs surveyed is the
county attorney at $136,074.
Constitutional officers'
salaries are set by the state
legislature, who recognize a
county commissioner as. a
part time position at $56,881
a year in 2009.
Sheriff Wendell Hall is the


highest paid constitutional
officer at $125,890 a year.
In the past 10 years, con-
stitutional officers saw raises
ranging from just more than
$23,000 to a few dollars less
than $29,000.
Those employed by the
county saw raises of almost
$41,000 for the county ad-
ministrator and just shy of
$36,000 for the county attor-
ney.
Some of the biggest pay
raises in the past decade
went to a fireman in the city
of Milton who makes $29,474
a year and the sewer opera-
tor in Milton who has seen a
63-percent plus pay increase
in the past 10 years, as has a


Milton police officer.
In education pay, a teach-
er who starts their first year
with a bachelor's degree was
expected to make $32,092
their first year, while a
school board member would
make fewer than $20 less at
$32,076.
Another PJC student,
Dakota Fbx, found some of
the pay troubling, especially
when it came to those who
work "in the line of duty."
"County commissioners,
the tax collector, county at-
torney and those sit behind
a desk, while those who put.
their lives on the line or have
a greater influence get so
much less," Fox said. "I feel


people like teacher, firemen,
police officers and sheriff's
deputies should get more.
"Firemen and police offi-
cers are working and putting
their lives on the line, while
you wouldn't be able to do
any of this work if it wasn't
for your education thanks to
a teacher."
All of the other education
salaries, such as superinten-
dent, assistant superinten-
dent and principal, were tak-
en from the midpoint of each
salary range grade. Some
received more than this, and
others could have received
less depending on where
they fell on the employment
classification.


UNITED WAY from page Al


The United Way's
"First Call for Help" lines
have been ringing off the
hook since the start of the
campaign year. The phone
line helps link people to
health or human services
that best fit their needs.
Parson said the phones
haven't stopped ringing,
and to her, that's a good
thing.
"We're getting up to 40
calls a day," Parson said.
"It's great that people are
taking advantage of it."
The non-profit is work-
ing side by side with the
Family Resource Program
off of Elva Street to donate
coats to those less fortu-


nate.
The FRlwhich recently.
put on a canned food drive,
has been collecting gently
used and new coats to hand
out to those less fortunate.
On Dec. 14, members of the
United Way will assist the*
FRP by handing the coats,
out to members of the com-
munity.
Despite the money goal,
lingering above half of its
target mark, there is still
time left, and Parson is
confident the United Way-
will reach its goal.
"Our donors are doing
so much right now, and
I'm confident we will get.
there," Parson said.

ADVANCED DENTAL CONCEPTS

Anxious and Fearful Dental Patients Have a Reason To Smile:
Advanced Dental Concepts, in Pace Now Offers Oral Relaxation Dentistry Treatment

Dental fear is a hidden phobia-the monster in the closet that no
one wants to talk about. Many people are embarrassed to admit
their fears and even more are afraid to confront them. Often times
not even loved ones are aware of their apprehension. Worst yet,
.these people may have never known that RELAXATION DENTISTRY . .
was an option. . .

When Dr. Spurlock first started practicing, he was amazed to
discover how many people were afraid and embarrassed to go to
the dentist. They would come to Dr. Spurlock's office trembling or
teary-eyed, with their hearts pounding in their chests like a drum.
After sitting down with the countless patients all experiencing the
same symptoms, Dr. Spurlock recognized that something needed
to be done to help them. That's when he decided to further his
training in safe and effective relaxation dentistry.

Advanced Dental Concepts is now offering relaxation dentistry. elL * o DS A
Drs Noel Spurlock, Ed Faulkner and Forrest Faulkner received
their training from DOCS Education and are the only local dentists FFaul
to offer this valuable and highly effective treatment. Call
Advanced Dental Concepts at 994-8185 to learn more. You can
also visit their website at www.AdvancedDentalConceptsinc.com
Advanced Dental Concepts is conveniently located at 4041 Highway 90 in Pace.

While these methods and medications cannot make the fear magically disappear, they can give patients the
confidence and peace of mind to experience dental procedures in a whole new way. Hours pass like mere
minutes and more dentistry can be performed in a single visit because the dentist is able to work more
efficiently. It is a win-win for both the patient and the dentist. lf/f OF 1/ /

eries in the area. The book is
called Easy Care Landscape
Plants for Florida Homes.
With family giving so
much support it is easy to
see why this residence de-
serves our community's
pride.
Dr. Helen Turner gra-
ciously accepted the award
this month as well. Dr Turn-
er has been a practicing
dentist in Milton for 12 years


and just recently moved her
business to its present loca-
tion.
If the name Turner rings
a bell this is because Dr.
Turner's father, 0. L. Turner
was also a dentist in Milton
for many years.
The dental building is lo-
cated on the corner of Ber-
ryhill and Alabama streets.
The building is a carefullyre-
stored home painted bright
yellow with crisp white trim.
The pretty landscape gives
the building a very residen-
tial feel. Walking up to the
dental office you might not
think about dentistry at all.
There's.a wide front porch
with lush ferns hanging
from the eaves. An arbor in
the back has wisteria clam-
bering over it. Many of the
newly planted trees will de-
velop showy flowers and the
property will be a gorgeous
sight come spring. On your
walk to the front door you'll
find places to stop and sit if
you'd like to enjoy the fine
landscape.
If you are lucky enough
to be a patient of Dr. Turn-
er's you will know that the
inside of her business is as
wonderful as the outside. It
is a treat just to sit in her re-
ception area. The restored
building gives the impres-
sion more of a home then
a dental office. Great care
has been given to the decor,
keeping the integrity of the
historic home as well as of-
fering all the most up to date
facilities.

OUR VIEW


We all need to


say a collective


'Thanks'

Before we get started, this mes-
sage is not approved or endorsed by
the ACLU or any other alphabetic
group that can't live and let live.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving..
It's a day in which we all should
embrace and enjoy as many of the
things we have to be thankful for as
possible.
Despite those who are trying to
mess up the apple cart, the quality of
life in Santa Rosa County is second to
none.
We try to dedicate a little space to
this topic every year. Some times we
do it at Christmas, other times it is
New Years. One year we even cov-
ered the topic during Easter.'
We're talking about thanking all
those people who work in jobs that
simply do not allow them to be with
their families on these special days.
For the vast majority of Americans,
Thanksgiving means a huge feast
with family and friends followed by-
an afternoon of football games. Yet,
there are those who can only see it as
another day on the job.
The same can be said for Christ-
mas ... that most-heart-touching of
holidays.
In the end, however, whether we're
talking about Thanksgiving, Christ-
mas, New Year or Easter, there will
be a group of people working hard so
you can relax and enjoy the holiday.
As you are about to begin your
'Thanksgiving feast, do you ever take
a moment to thank the police officers
cruising the streets.. .making sure
the day is as crime-free as possible?
How about the firemen who are sit-
ting at a nearby station, just in case
their services should be needed?
Inside the hospital, you'll find plenty
of nurses and technicians who must
work for those who are hospitalized.
Just before the meal, you may be
asked to run to the nearby conve-
nience store for some last-minute
item. All those store clerks are giving
up their special day as well.
For some of these folks, not only
does the job require they give up
their holiday, it could require they
give up their life.
For all these reasons and many
more than we have the space to men-
tion, we dedicate this space to these
workers. We'll include them in our
pre-Thanksgiving feast prayers...
...and hope you'll do the same.

Guest EDITORIAL


A national security failure for our shores


The United States no
longer has a Navy big
enough to defend our
shores and safeguard
America's interest and
citizens around the globe.
It is time for the Ameri-
can people to hold our
leader accountable for this
failure.
The Congressional
Budget Office (CBO) has
analyzed the funding need-
ed to build the Navy to
313 ships - the minimum
number the Chief of Naval
Operations and the Chair-
man of the Joint Chiefs
of Staff say is required to
meet our national security
requirements. In several
reports from 2005 on, the
CBO notes that from 2000
through 2008, the Navy
was authorized to build
fewer than six ships per
year, shrinking the fleet to
an inadequate 283 ships.
Our navy is now less than
haft the size it was 20
years ago, and 40 ships
less than a decade ago.
Until recently, every


president since before
World War I - Democrat
or Republican - and ev-
ery Congress, regardless
of party leadership, under-
stood that a Navy of more
than 300 ships is essential
to keep the peace, defend
our shores and safeguard
America's global interest.
Keeping the sea lanes
open has never been more
important, especially given
our reliance on imported
oil and the globalization of
trade.
Arid threats to those
sea lanes are increas-
ing. China is building a
modern, 200-plus ship
Navy with a focus on
submarines. Iran recently
threatened, to cut off the
flow of oil in the Persian
'Gulf. Even Russia has re-
sumed naval deployments
and recently announced
plans to build five new air-
craft carriers. Every day
news reports carry word
of another act of piracy in
unpatrolled waters.
No nation has main-


trained global viability
without having maritime
superiority. We have been
a global leader for more
than a century because
we are a strong maritime
nation. By failing to prop-
erly fund shipbuilding, our
leaders have broken from
the proven record of their
predecessors.
Equally important is
the impact that failure
to adequately fund Navy
requirements has had on
America's shipbuilding
infrastructure. We now
have so few remaining
shipyards and such a
severe shortage of skilled
labor that the indus-
trial base would be hard
pressed to meet the need
to build or repair large
numbers of ships during a
conflict.
A typical Navy warship
has an expected life of 30
years. To maintain a Navy
of at least 300 ships, the
nation must fund and build
at least 12 ships per year.
The CBO now estimates


+;",--;<";"; , '<6


it will take $27 billion per
year to reach and maintain
a 313-ship Navy, a direct
consequence of past deci-
sion to fund only a handful
of ships per year. The total
"bill" for the chronic under
funding of Navy shipbuild-
ing approaches $100 billion
dollars. Unfortunately,
the president's budget for
.2010 only asked Congress
for $14.5 billion for ship
construction, which will
put the fleet even further.
behind.
It is imperative that
our government leaders
reconsider the amount
to be spent on shipbuild-
ing beginning in 2010.
Citizens are encouraged
to contact their elected
leaders in Congress and
ask them to return our
Navy to 313 ships that our
military leaders believe is
essential for our national
defense.
Daniel B. Branch, Jr.
is the National President
of the Navy League of the
United States.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day


Written By Dr. Jerry Passomore
Interim Pastor
I have reflected on this be-
fore writing this article. I have
thought about my own life.
In retrospect I have ex-
pressed thanks to God daily
as I prayed. In recalling other
people as they prayed, they did
the very same thing. Although
we do this daily, Thanksgiving
Day is a time we give recogni-
tion to thanking God. I really
believe a better word could be


used to express what we are
really doing on Thanksgiving
Day. We are praising God. We
are giving him the glory and
praise for who he is and what
he has done for us personally
and collectively as a nation.
We are the only country that
observes Thanksgiving Day on
the fourth Thursday of Novem-
ber to my knowledge. We do
this because of our heritage
remembering how we were
born as a nation and thanking
God for our forefathers who


braved so much to bring us
where we are today. Had it not
been for the sovereign grace
of God, we would not be the
nation we are today. I just want
to praise him for a number of
things on Thanksgiving Day.
I want to praise him for what
he has done. The first Chapter
of Genesis tells us of what he'-
did in the creative act to bring
our world into existence. We
praise him for night and day,
the changing of the seasons,
food we eat, air we breathe,'


clothes we wear, shelter we
enjoy and all other provi-
sions. It is because of him we
experience the order of the
universe in which we live. We
also praise him for who he
is. I quote from a writer: "We
praise Him as the creator who
brought our world into being;
as the king, who rules over
the world, as the warrior who
defeats the forces of chaos,
as the judge who enhances
and sustains righteousness;
and as the transformer who


is capable of creating a new
reality in the world." We praise
God at this Thanksgiving Day
for sending his only begotten
son to become the sacrifice for
our sins that God required for
our personal forgiveness., his
death, burial and resurrection
is the gospel that we receive
into our hearts 'in order that
we can be forgiven of our sins
and become a part of God's
family. Let us praise God today
for who he is and what he has
done for us.

Dear Pastor Gallups - "Do you think there is intelligent, ,
human-like life on other planets? Couldn't God have done that
if he wanted to? Why would he have made the stars and plan-
ets?" J.Y,-Pace

Dear J. Y.,
You have asked three questions. Yes. God COULD do that
if he wanted to. Now - the second question, "Is there life (human
like) on other planets?"
We must begin with the Word of God, the Bible. Here is
how I see it. '
The Bible clearly teaches that life is only possible through a
process of creation. God is the only "Creator." 'Even if there were
other galaxies with planets very similar to earth, life could only
be there if God the Creator made it. If God had done that, and if
these beings were going to visit us one day, then surely he would
have told us about something this monumentus visitation. The
Bible says nothing of the sort, however.
God has given us rather specific details of the future-for.
example, the return of Jesus, and many details about the end of
the world, yet not a mention of alien beings visiting us. The entire
universe will, at some future point, be rolled up like a scroll
(Isaiah 34:4, Revelation 6:14). If God had created living beings
elsewhere, this would automatically destroy their planets as well.
Now for the third question, the reason stars and planets
were made are given to us in several places in the Bible, not only
in the well-known Psalml9 but firstly in the creation account. In
Genesis 1:14 we find: "And God'said, Let there be lights in the
expanse of the heavens to divide between the day and the night.
And let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and
years."
God made the stars for mankind on earth, not alien beings
"somewhere out there." If one will read carefully the creation
account in Genesis it is easy to see that the purpose of creation is
uniquely centered on this earth and on mankind.
It is my sincerest belief that other than the angelic realm of
God's creation, that human like life on other planets is very
unlikely, based on the information in-God's Word. The stars, the
planets, the universe, the galaxies are there for us to be in awe of
God.

Santa Rosa Medical Center to provide


more user friendly imaging opportunities


By OBIE RAIN
ocrain@srpressgazette.com

If you've ever suffered
the inconvenience of having
to miss work or rearrange
other priority activities in
order to get an imaging
appointment scheduled dur-
ing regular "business"
hours, you're not at all
alone. It's a troublesome
problem that many others
continue to encounter as
well.
But not to worry! The
medical staff and adminis-
tration at Santa Rosa
Medical Center are aware of
.the problem, and are taking
innovative steps to eliminate
the negative consequences
*and make the procedures
more readily available and
convenient.
* This is being accom-
plished through a new initia-
tive whereby imaging serv-
ices, including mammogra-
phy and CT (computerized
tomography) scans are
going to be delivered to start
with by the hospital's radiol-
ogy department on Saturday
mornings.
Beginning the second
Saturday in January, 2010,
Santa Rosa Medical Center
will begin to offer these
imaging services from 8
a.m., to noon each Saturday
morning for the conven-
ience of those who may find
it troublesome if not next to
impossible to schedule them
during the week. These
weekend offerings are
designed to make the servic-


es available to individuals
.without interrupting their
work week hours set aside
for making a living.
Simply put, according to
Director of Imaging
Services and Cardio Jerry
Womack, RT(R), "These
services are being arranged
for the customers, for the
public, as easier access. A
lot of people work during
the week, and it's hard for
them to get here Monday
through Friday during regu-
lar office hours. It will allow
people to have a choice."
He said they were going
to make it very simple
through a pre-registration
procedure that would elimi-
nate most of the "paper
work" when the patient
reported for the service.
"After the individual pre-
registers, all he or she has to
do is come in an&d report
directly to the appropriate
department."
"The Mammography
Department is located on the
second floor of the Medical
Office Building, and since the
patient is pre registered all
she will have to do is walk
right in, relieved of most all
necessary paperwork,"
according to Tony Cross,
RT(R)(CT), Assistant
Director of Imaging Services.
"They will simply sign the
form they have to sign, get
their mammogram, and be on
their way."
Jerry says that essentially
the same thing will happen
with the scheduled CT scan
procedure. Pre registration


will eliminate much of the
time it ordinarily takes to get
the administrative work
accomplished prior .to the
scheduled procedures.
Routine CTs or basic pro-
cedure CTs will be the only
ones offered during the initial
start-up period for weekend
services.
"What we're going to do,
basically, is offer Santa Rosa
County more services with
easier access than we have in
the past," Jerry said.
"Being customer friendly
is what it's all about." He con-
tinued. "With people working
all day during the week,
there's little time for them to
get services like this done
without taking off from work.
And with the economy the
shape it's in, most employers
don't want you taking off. In
a nutshell, we're trying to
offer the county and the peo-
ple an easier way to get a pro-
cedure done at Santa Rosa
Medical Center."
Jerry said issues leading
up to the weekend offerings
surfaced during meetings
with Hospital CEO Phillip
Wright who brought up the
subject as a way to make the
outpatient services more
accessible to the public.
"Everyone concerned was
receptive to the idea right
away, and we began making
preparations to implement the
extra weekend hours," Jerry
said.
The new schedule will not
require any equipment that is
not already in service, and by
a minor reshuffle of employ-


Obie Crain | Press Gazette
Santa Rosa Medical Center's Imaging Department has arranged to provide a more
convenient imaging schedule for those who work during the week. Beginning the sec-
ond Saturday.in January of 2010, weekend schedules will become available for at
least two imaging procedures, including mammograms and CT scans. Assistant
Director Tony Cross, RT(R)(CT), left, and Imaging Services and Cardio Department
Director Jerry Womack, RT(R) show the CT scanner, a major appliance involved in
the CT scanning process.


ee schedules, no extra help
will be needed either at the
present time.
"We're going to start out
with these two procedures in
the new time frame to test the
waters, so to speak, to see
how receptive they are to the
public," Jerry said. However,
should the need arise, they
. would be receptive to increas-
ing both the offerings and
more of the convenient week-
end hours,
"There's a possibility in
the future that other proce-
dures will ultimately be


offered on weekends too,"-
Jerry said. "We have to start
somewhere and mammo-
grams and CT scans seemed
to be the best procedures ini-
tially. If these go well, we'll
just open up others and
expand the offerings."
Scheduling will begin the
first of January 2010. Patients
who wish to use the new and
more convenient hours
should mako arrangements by'
calling the department at
(850) 626-5129.
Currently X-rays and"
some other imaging services


'available in the Radiology
Department are already avail-
able on a 24-hour, seven-day
week basis. Walk-ins. with
proper authorization from
their physicians may get such
services on the spot.
During these Saturday
appointment offerings, there
will be a menu-type meal
offered the patient for either
breakfast or lunch. This fea-
ture is being arranged as an
added convenience to make
the Saturday procedure even
more convenient and com-
fortable.

It's Christmas time in



Santa Rosa County...

By MATHEW PELLEGRINO 1
mpellegrino@srpressgazette.com /

T he most memorable part of the.
holidays for many around the region
doesn't come wrapped in a box. It's
usually spent standing on the side of
a road glimpsing at colorful floats and nose-div-
ing to catch pieces of holiday candy.
The region will host a series of parades
starting with the Jay Christmas Parade on Nov.
28 and ending with of all things, the Redneck
Christmas Parade in Chumuckla.
The Redneck Parade and festival, which areLI
put on every holiday season, get locals in the
holiday giving spirit. The weekend festival will
run Dec. 12-13 at Chumuckla Park, and will help
raise money for local families that are in need

Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival grant to

impact hundreds of Milton children


Special to the Press Gazette

Thanks to a grant from the Great
Gulfcoast Arts Festival, hundreds of
children living in the Milton Housing
Authority will have the opportunity
to be part of W.O.O.PS! (Windows
of Opportunities), a project of the
GFWC Milton Woman's Club, Inc.
Pam Mitchell is chairman of the
project.
The kick-off event was held on a
beautiful Saturday in October. Ap-
proximately seventy-five children
participated between the hours
of noon and 4 p.m., ending with a
cookout. Special thanks to Robert
Youngblood and Don Bardwell for
coordinating the cookout and to the
Housing Authority and Phyllis Wales
for all their assistance in making
the day possible. Paulette Martin,
Nouveau Pastries provided the
delicious dessert for the cookout,
Merritt's Paint assisted with paints
for the mural and Blackwater Folk
Art provided art supplies.
Rhodes Elementary teacher,
Toni New and King Middle teacher,
Vicki Ford, also participated in the
day's activities. Both teachers have
many of the children in their classes
at school. Hands on art projects
included: bead-making; sand art;
popcorn ball decorating; painting;
wand making; and more. Children
had the opportunity to also be part
of a new mural painted on the wall
of one of the activity buildings in the
complex.
Six art easels, painter's aprons,
lots of paper, paints, pencils, wa-
tercolor markers and more were
purchased and will remain in the
activity center for the children'
to enjoy. One of the things that
impressed everyone was the way
children were drawn to and how
much they enjoyed the easel. Lots
of creativity came through and one
child remained at his easel for an
hour. #
While workers were sketching
the mural on the building on Friday,


kids, young and old, hung on the
fence and were really anticipating
the event on Saturday. Several "old-
er" kids came back on Saturday to
help paint. They were very helpful
and polite and genuinely seemed to
enjoyed being a part of the project.
Milton Woman's Club members
assisting Mitchell with this project
included: Anthea Amos; Paula Lou
Mapoles; Ann Barnhill; Melinda
Bedgood; Cindy Lamprecht; Su-
zanna Jones; Elaine Tyree; Geor-
gieanna Bryant; Maggie Mims; and
Cecile Stephens.
The Club is hopeful that by re-
ceiving grants such as this one, they
will be able to continue to impact
the lives of the children living in
the complex during quarterly "Art-
Smart" days. They plan to have vis-
iting artists participate and provide
hands on projects and motivation
to explore the children's creativ-
ity. The Milton Woman's Club goal
is to provide an expressive, artistic
outlet for these low-income children.
They believe the activities will allow
children to explore their creativity
and therefore gain self confidence.
This self confidence would then
move them on to achieve more in
their education and possibly break
the cycle that low income living has
on so many of their lives.
In addition to "Art Smart" days,
the Club has purchased and pro-
vided tables and chairs, book racks
and storage bins for the children's
area at the Santa Rosa Correctional
Institution. The prisoners have
created and painted a mural for the
recreation area where they spend
time with their children. The Club
will continue to provide crayons,
books, reading materials and-games
to encourage creative expression
between the children and their
incarcerated parents.
For more information on how you.
can become part of this hard-work-
ing, award-winning organization,

AAA projects 1.4 percent increase in Thanksgiving travel


With a cautious eye on economic re-
covery more Americans intend to travel
this year for Thanksgiving than last
year. AAA projects 38.4 million Ameri-
cans will travel a distance of 50 miles
or more away from home throughout
Thanksgiving weekend, a 1.4 percent in-
crease over last year when 37.8 million
traveled for the holiday.
"We take the projected increase in
travelers as a sign that economic recov-
ery may finally be taking root and we be-
lieve many Americans certainly share
the same hope," said Kevin Bakewell,
senior vice president, AAA Auto Club
South.
Overall, the numbers show an even
greater number of people who plan on


driving (86% of all travelers) which re-
flects a growing public dissatisfaction
with air travel. Fewer flights, higher
costs for airfares, frequent delays and
increased fees have a record number
of Americans opting for other means of
travel. This year only 6 percent of trav-
elers said they will travel by air and that
exemplifies a 10-year trend in which
air travel, as part of total Thanksgiving
travel, has declined substantially. Since
2000, the number of air travelers during
Thanksgiving weekend has dropped by
62 percent. For those planning to fly, ad-
ditional airline information and updates
may be found at www.AAA.com/air-
fares.
Florida and Georgia are projected


to show a 3 percent increase in overall
travel versus 2008, but in Tennessee an
8 percent decrease is anticipated and
that is reportedly due to high unemploy-
ment in Tennessee.
With so many motorists expected on
the roadways, Bakewell recommends
that everyone avoid driver distractions
such as cell phones and texting, as well
as avoid "driver fatigue" and not attempt
a long drive home at night, especially if
there's any drowsiness after enjoying a
hearty Thanksgiving dinner.
"On Thanksgiving Day we're all es-
pecially susceptible to 'carb-overload'
and when you couple that with the tryp-
tophan that is present in turkey and
other meats, and perhaps an alcoholic


beverage, many of us are ready for a
nap," Bakewell said.
He noted that tryptophan can contrib-
ute to a feeling of drowsiness and mo-
torists must be aware of that and avoid
driving if they feel tired. "It's much bet-
ter to stay put rather than place yourself
and others at risk," he added. '"A fresh
start in the morning after you've rested
makes a world of difference."
AAA's holiday travel projections are
based on research conducted by IHS
Global Insight and D.K. Shifflet & Asso-
ciates which conducted a national sur-
vey of 1,350 U.S. adults. The complete
AAA/HIS Global Insight 2009 Thanks-
giving holiday forecast can be found at

An enrolled agent (EA) can be a real
lifesaver at tax time. Unlike other
tax preparers, enrolled agents are
federally licensed by the U.S. Department
of the Treasury. They specialize in taxation
and go through strict testing and application
procedures and continuing education to achieve
the unmatched expertise they offer you today.
So, before you get in over your head, put an
enrolled agent on your side.

Allen to roar for Auburn Tigers


By BILL GAMBLING
sports@srpressgazette.com
Brandon Allen is looking to
blaze his own trail in college
with a -fastball this summer
that reached 91 mph.
That speed and a showcase
in south Florida made the
Panther senior something to
behold as he worked his way
out of a bases-loaded jam and
got college coaches calling his
home even before he finished
the inning.
"All of a sudden, I was at
home and the phone started-
ringing," said Kelly Allen,
Brandon's mother, after Bran-
don's signing. "I didn't know
what was going on, but I got
calls from all of these major
college coaches.


"The coaches at (the Uni-
versity of) Florida even called
Adam (Allen) to ask them why
he didn't tell them about his
little brother."
She later
found out her
son pitched
his way out of
a bases-load-
ed jam and
then went on
BRANDON to pitch three
ALLEN more score-
less innings..
. The suitors were many, but
Allen chose to stay in the re-
gion and play for the Tigers in
the Southeastern Conference.
"I love the'school, and I like
the idea of going somewhere.
close to home so I can drive
home every now and then,"


Allen said.
But don't think he got this
scholarship on pure athletics.
Allen is an example of the stu-
dent-athlete.
While playing basketball for
four years and varsity baseballs
for three, Allen has maintained
a 4.0 GPA and scored a 32 on
his ACT. The highest you can
score on the ACT is a 36.
"Being his pitching coach, I
can tell you he has a work eth-
ic beyond belief," said Milton
baseball coach George Blake.
"He is a great kid to coach, and
this is a great day for Milton
baseball."
Allen will be the first to ad-
mit, if you can get him to talk,
that he has been flying under.
See ALLEN (3.


Brandon Allen is joined by his family as he signs a baseball scholarship
to pitch next season at Auburn University. The two-sport athlete signed
his national letter-of intent on Friday.

Patriots fall to Eagles in playoffs


By BILL GAMBLING
sports@srpressgazette.com
NICEVILLE - A football is shaped
rather funny to be called a ball, and
because of its shape, it can take
some rather quirky bounces.
Such was the case Friday night
as the Pace Patriots fell to the
Niceville Eagles 52-30 in the open-
ing round of the Region 1-4A foot-
ball playoffs.
The Patriots seemed to have
landed a knockout punch to the
beak of the No. 1-ranked Eagles
with just over six minutes remain-
ing in the game.
David Casey plunged in from one
yard out and then hit Josh Reeves
for a successful two-point conver-
sion to make it 38-30 with 6:55 on the
clock.
Niceville was on the ropes and
got flagged with unsportsmanlike
conduct and a personal foul on the
two-point conversion.
Pace took advantaged of the pen-
alty and lined up for an onside kick.
Greg Peranich kicked off, and
the ball bounded in the air as a
swarm of Patriots descended on the
Eagles' return team.
Amid the scramble, Pace
emerged from the pack with the ball
and crossed the Eagles' goal line.
The official raised his arms indi-
cating a touchdown, and the Pace
faithful and team erupted in joy.
Suddenly the officials gathered
and ruled the Patriots had illegally
touched the ball before it went 10
yards, yet there was no yellow laun-
dry on the field or a whistle blown to
call the play dead.
"We knew coming in here they
are a good team," Pace head coach
Mickey Lindsey said. "For us to have
a chance to win, we would have had
to play a flawless football game.
"We came up on the short in to-
night, but it wasn't for a lack of ef-
fort of our team. I am very proud
of these young men because they


A loose ball was picked up by Pace's Will Pharr and returned 45
yards to tie the game at 7-7 early in the second quarter.


played hard all night long."
Then in the moment of emotion,
Pace was hit with two personal fouls
and what appeared to be a possible
game-tying touchdown turned into
an eight-play Niceville drive where
the Eagles took a 45-30 lead with
3:18 left in the contest.'
Niceville would go on to add one
more score as Kody Williams inter-
cepted a Casey pass and returned
to 80 yards for a touchdown with
1:49 remaining.
Casey finished the night going
nine-for-21 for 189 yards and three
interceptions, all of which came in
the second half.
At the start of the game Niceville
stopped Pace and then quickly went
to work on the ground.
The Eagles appeared poised to
control the game on the ground as
they took their opening possession
77 yards in four plays with Gar-
rett Fletcher finding a seam in the
Pace defense for a 45-yard scamper
to make it 7-0 after Tanner Hansen
added the point after.
It would remain 7-0 until Pace
forced a-turnover early in the sec-
ond quarter and Will Pharr returned
the ball 45 yards to make it 7-7 with
10:10 remaining in the first half.
It went back and forth for the re-
mainder of the first half as both of-


fenses pounded away.
Niceville ,went up 14-7 when
Roy Finch banged his way through
from two yards out with 7:49 re-
maining.
Pace would quickly responded at
the 6:50 mark as Tyler Hunt would
rumble 64 yards for a touchdown.
Hunt finished the night with 101
yards on 15 carries to lead Pace on
the ground.
Niceville would get the lead
again, 21-14, as Kyle McDorman hit
Williams for an 80-yard strike.-
It would remain 21-14 until inter-
mission.
Pace's defense battled the high-
powered Eagle offense and left
its mark to start the third quarter
when Niceville was forced to punt
on fourth-and-six at its 21.
The Patriots put on a block, and
Ryne Burkett found the direct route
was the best to block the punt.
Before the defense could fall on
the ball, it rolled out of the back of
the end zone for a safety to make it
21-16.
"We played possibly the tough-
est schedule in school history, and
these young men gave it their all
every night," Lindsey said. "I am
so proud of this team because they

Ben Willard is new to
Milton and Santa Rosa
County, but he brings with
him some attention to the
growing Milton wrestling
program.
Friday, the three-time
national champion and
state champion from South
Carolina signed to wrestle
at The Citadel.
"Ben is a wrestler who
moved his this summer
and has worked hard to
get better and has made
us better as a team," said
Milton head coach Duane
Raley. "He does the extra
work and every morning
before school he gets his
five miles in."
* That work ethic could
be the reason while Willard
has three national champi-
onships and has never fin-
ished worse than fourth in
the state the previous three
years he lived in South Car-
olina as he compiled a over-
all record of 90-10.
"When I found out I was
moving here I asked my
sister (Diana) to see if they
had a wrestling team," Wil-
lard said. "Then when I got
here I saw the competition
is a little better here and


the guys on the team make
me better as I have some
very tough practice partE.
ners."
For Wif
lard, who
picked the
Citadel
S over the
likes of the
three mili-
tary acade-
BEN WILLARD mies it was
a choice he
had made since the sixth
grade.
"It was where I wanted
to go since the first time I
saw the campus and met
the coaches when I was in
sixth grade," Willard said.
"I got a couple of calls from
the coach this month and
he sent me the paper work
. "It is exciting since he
wanted me and kept up
with me after I moved."
For the Milton program
itself, Friday was a huge
step.
S"When we hired Coach
Raley we told him we Want-
ed him to run the wrestling
program," said Milton ath-
letic director Murray Rut-
ledge. "Now after fouryears
and in our third competitive
season to. have a wrestler
sign a D-1 scholarship is a
tremendous event."


BILL GAMBLING I Press Gazette
Ben Williard completes his dream Friday by signing
his national letter of intent to wrestle at the Citadel.
Willard, the first Milton wrestler to sign a scholar-
ship in the program's four-year history, has dreamed
about this since he was in sixth grade.

FWC seeks public input on captive wildlife rules


Special to the Press Gazette
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
has extended its deadline for the
public to participate in an online
survey that will help the agency
develop new requirements for
possessing Class I, II and HI
wildlife. The survey began Nov. 3
and has been extended from Nov.


24 to Dec. 7. A limited response
from the public resulted in the
' extension.
The survey includes ques-
tions on whether Class I and II
captive wildlife owners' facilities
should meet local building codes
and/or zoning requirements and
whether wildlife owners should
provide their Critical Incident
and Disaster Plan to their coun-


ty's emergency manager. In ad-
dition, the survey asks whether
people shipping or delivering live
wild animals via interstate or in-
trastate commerce should label
such packages. The label would
list the name and address of the
sender and receiver and identify
the number and species of live
wildlife in the shipment.
Class I wildlife include goril-


las, chimpanzees, lions, leopards,
tigers and bears. Class II.wildlife
include several species of small
monkeys, small cats, coyotes and
wolves. Class I and II wildlife are
potentially dangerous to people.
The FWC also is asking for in-
put on the licensing requirements
for hobbyists (those who possess
wildlife for personal use and en-
joyment) who might occasionally


exhibit or sell Class III wildlife.
Class III wildlife represents
all species not listed as Class I or
Class II, and includes those spe-
cies that are specifically listed as
not requiring a permit for per-
sonal possession.
To get a complete list of ani-
mal classifications, rules and to.
participate in the survey, visit

"Prior to the showcase
in Lakeland, I had been
flying under the radar," he

calls before he decided on
Florida three years ago.
"I learned a lot from
Adam by watching him
and talking to him," Bran-
don said. "He taught me
never to close a door, but
I will admit I heard from


some colleges I was not in-

Last season, the Tigers

Allen could come in right
away and contribute.
"When I talked to the
coaches, they explained

Helping patients get well and assisting them regain the quality of life they deserve is
the goal of Santa Rosa Medical Center's Rehabilitation Department. Left to,'right, front

Physical Therapist and Rehabilitation Department Director; and Patrick Dwyer,

Enhancing patient


quality of life is goal of


SRMC rehabilitation,


department


By OBIE RAIN
ocrain@srpressgazette.com

Its dedicated and expe-
rienced team of profes-
sional therapists, coupled
with the most modern
state of the art equipment
available to work with,
supports the reputation of
the Physical
Re habilitation
Department at Santa Rosa
Medical Center as one of
the best available along
the Gulf Coast.
The comprehensive
inpatient and outpatient
services offered by the
Physical Rehabilitation
Department are designed
"...to help patients
enhance their quality of
life," according to the
hospital's Director of
Physical Rehabilitation
Amy Davis, RPT, and
include physical and
speech therapists,
licensed physical therapist
assistants, and aquatic
instructors.
One of the most unique
features of the 5,000
square foot facility is its
400 .square foot heated
therapy pool which makes
warm water aquatic exer-
cise classes available for
both therapy and exercise
classes for the communi-
ty.
"We are an outpatient
facility that caters to a
variety and wide range of
patients," Davis said in a
recent interview explain-
ing the function and ulti-
mate goals of the depart-
ment. "We do treat quite a
few of the elderly and
geriatric population and
certainly do consider our
department and our serv-
ices as 'senior friendly',"
Davis pointed out.


"Anybody that does
come, to us has to be
referred by a physician,
and we do accept a variety
of different insurances,
including Medicare,", she
said.
Each patient that is
referred to "Rehab," as
the department is inti-
mately and -commonly
characterized, receives a.
thorough evaluation from
the staff which is followed
by a personalized pro-
gram that is developed
based on the specific
needs of the patient.
"We offer .general fit-
ness programs; including
the rehabilitation of any
type of walking difficul-
ties and balance problems,
rehabilitation of fractured
bones after surgery, any
type of orthopedic type
problems including knee
and hip rehabilitation, and
just about anything that
has to do with an injury,"
Davis said.
Davis cites the 400
square foot, therapeutical-
ly heated pool as one of
the department's very
valuable tools to assist in
the rehabilitation of
arthritis, chronic pain, and
other debilitating disor-
ders. She pointed out that
one-on-one patient thera-
pist care was available in
this regard. "We also do
offer classes in the mom-
ing and afternoon that are
paid for by out of pocket
funds for those in the
community that an benefit
from the pool," she said.
Among those tools
available for their thera-
peutic work are tread-
mills, bicycles of different
orientation, weights, and
of course the therapeutic,
heated pool, among oth-


*ers.
At the Santa Rosa
Medical Center
Rehabilitation Center they
can train people how to
walk again, how to go up
and down stairs, and a
variety of other therapeu-
tic services. In addition
they are experts when it
comes to rehabilitating
sports injuries commonly
sustained by athletes.
The team of therapists
is exceptionally skilled in
a wide variety of services.
Not only are arthritis, bal-
ance disorders, and sports
related injuries addressed,
but other major limita-
tions are treated as well.
Neck and back pain,
osteoporosis, rotator cuff
repairs, tendonitis, stroke,
and tennis elbow are
among those addressed by
the department's highly
skilled therapists.
Operating hours at the
Physical Rehabilitation
Department are flexible
with sessions that last
about an hour each,
beginning at 8:00 o'clock
a.m. Monday through
Friday. The department is
.closed on Saturday and
Sunday.
Santa Rosa Medical
Center CEO Phillip
Wright summarizes the
care of both the hospital
and its rehabilitation
department. "At Santa
Rosa Medical Center, we
want you to not only get
the best care possible, but
also have confidence in
the care you are receiv-
ing," he said. "Our dedi-
cated staff of profession-
als works every day to
help our patients return to
a healthy lifestyle and
