bites back


bad dogs

Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter
Man's best friend has stood by his side
for centuries, offering companionship,
helping find food, and even assisting in
saving his life. But man's best friend has a
violent side and can quickly become man's
worst enemy.
There are almost 5 million dog bites per
year. About 800,000 victims per year
require medical treatment. One thousand
dog bite victims per day are seen in hospi-
tal emergency rooms. More than half of the
victims who receive medical attention are
children most of who are bitten in the
face.
The city of Crestview has already quar-
. antined.-5egsethis year itfoeBattacks- ''By
law we have to hold any dog involved in an
attack, on either a human or another animal
for a minimum of ten days," said Mike
Wing, director of leisure services for the
city of Crestview.
Mike is quick to refer to Florida Statue
section 767.12, which addresses violent
dogs and the damage caused by them. The
statute requires the local animal control
authority to investigate any incident involv-
ing an alleged dangerous dog.
"We also have to determine under
Florida statute 767.12 following our inves-
tigation whether the dog is to be classified
as dangerous," added Wing.
The most recent dog attack in the city
of Crestview involved a female pit bull that
attacked and inflicted life threatening
injuries to a one-year-old Dachshund.
"Two of the muscles in the leg and
shoulder had to be sutured back together,"
said Dr. Elizabeth Conrad, DVM, from the
Okaloosa Animal Clinic. Dr. Conrad treat-
ed the injured dog following emergency
surgery at the Niceville Emergency Clinic.
"Most likely," continued Conrad, "there is

Instead of checking out only a few
books each library visit, Sherrie Kennedy
is making it possible to take home the
whole Robert Sikes Library virtually.
Kennedy, a local woman with her own
website design business, is planning to
launch a new library section for Robert
Sikes today on the website she created for
the city, www.cityofcrestview.com.
Links to the library databases will be
accessible through the website.
"It's going to be very convenient for


people to use their home computers instead
of having to go to the library," said
Kennedy.
The site is young, up and running for
just over 2 months, since December 9,
2004.
"The library section is the latest
improvement we're making," said
Kennedy. "That's going to be a whole new
gamut."
In case you're not familiar with the new
site, the library database is only one of
many convenient features the website

Finishing Main street


Ken Nielsen/The News Bulletin
Mario Guerra of Gulf Atlantic Construction works on curbing, one of the finishing touches to the Main Street ren-
ovation project. The project was slowed by Hurricane Ivan but is nearing completion.

City putting final touches on downtown project


Lauren McLaughlin
News Bulletin Reporter
Ongoing renevotion of the south end of Main Street will
finally come to a close the beginning of March.
According to Public Works Director Junior Cox, the city's
deadline for the project was Feb. 15. Although Hurricane Ivan
pushed progress back about two months, Cox said the project
is still "mighty close" to being completed on time.
Following is an emlniated tinieline of the final stages of
work:


Friday: Concrete work, landscaping, and electrical should
all be in place.
Monday: Asphalt to be laid on resurfacing. If not complet-
ed Monday, Cox estimated it will be done no later than the
middle of next week.
"We'll have to let it cure before we do the striping," he
said.
March 2: Depending on when the asphalt cures, which
takes five to seven days, Cox speculated that striping should
be completed.
"That should be the end of it," he said.

The HIV/AIDS epidemic is a health cri-
sis for African Americans. National Black
HIV/AIDS Awareness and Information Day
is observed each year on February 7 to call
attention to the effect of HIV and AIDS on
the black population in the United States
Okaloosa Aids Support and Information
Services, Inc. and the Okaloosa County
Minority AIDS Task Force recognized
National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness and
Information Day by hosting a meeting at
the Carver Hill-School Center in Crestview
on February 7.
"Tonight we're introducing a program
designed by the CDC called Community
Promise," said Heather Cadwell, event
coordinator from OASIS.


The program is based on behavior
change and addresses the way people
approach their sexual behavioral and how
behaviors are guided by attitudes, beliefs,
experiences, and expectations of other per-
sons.
"The CDC did a study and found that
previous types of outreaches, like simply
handing out condoms, did not work," con-
tinued Cadwell. "So they came up with the
idea that behavioral change, and the way
we get information to and from people
would be a better way."
Cadwell is part of a team recruiting
"peer advocate" volunteers in local neigh-
borhoods to take this new approach and
make it a grass roots effort within the black
and gay community.

ACS gearing up for Relay for Life


News Bulletin Reporter "


North Okaloosa County members
of the American Cancer Society are
starting off the new year by gearing
up for Relay For Life, to be held
April 15-16 at the Old Spanish Trail
Festival Site.
North Okaloosa Relay For Life is
one of the largest in the nation. They-
have earned the status of a Top Ten
Community of 2004 by placing sixth
in their class, which is based on pop-
'ulation. They placed third in the
nation on a list of registered cancer
survivors.
"When we're out in the commu-
nity talking to people about why we
participate in this, this is one of the
reasons why," stated the ACS Staff
Partner Michelle Gagnard. "We have
raised such a tremendous amount of
money. We are well above average
with the amount of money we have
raised."
Thursday night at First Baptist
Church in the Fellowship Hall, a pre-
registration survivor dinner party was
held. There were about 40 cancer sur-
vivors at the dinner. A cancer sur-
Svivor is not necessarily a person who
has beat cancer. Survivors are also
those currently living with the dis-
ease.
Karen Philpott is the chairperson
of the survivor board. She helped
coordinate the dinner while making
eggplant parmesan spaghetti f. Publix
Supermarket of Crestview donated
bread. Jim and Elaine Skates from
Emmanuel Baptist Church Life
Group helped serve the food and reg-
istered new survivors.
"We are here helping in any way
we can," stated Jim Skates.
The survivors were also treated to
free Bingo and door prizes, which
were donated by AmSouth Bank,
First National Bank, and
Whataburger.
Last Thursday's dinner party was
just the beginning. For the next three

months, registered Relay For Life
teams will be busy raising money for
the American Cancer Society. North
Okaloosa's goal is $115,000 this year.
The money is used to help elimi-
nate cancer as a major health problem
by preventing cancer, and saving
lives. For those living with cancer,
the American Cancer Society dimin-
ishes suffering through 'cancer
research, education, advocacy, and
local services.
A Relay For Life Team Captain
Meeting was held in the Conference
room at Holiday Inn in Crestview last
Tuesday. Last year's Relay For Life
participants are expecting another
fun-filled night of celebration.


"Last year, our goal was to have
18 hours of relay fun, and we accom-
plished that," said-Tim Bryant, the
chairman for the event. "Some things
we want to improve on will be light-
ing and seating. We have already
arranged to have better lighting and
more bleachers out there. So, it looks
like, again, this year we're going to
be able to have 18 hours of exciting
activities."
The most anticipated activities
will be Crestview Idol and Fear
Factor.
"We won't disclose exactly what
kind of things people will be eating
for Fear Factor, that way we can pre-
serve the element of surprise. But,


there's no need to worry, everything
will be taken straight off the grocery
store shelf!"
Crestview Idol is going to be an
American Idol style karaoke session,
complete with American Idol style
judges.
Local musicians will be there as
well. Travis Gillihan will be playing
some lively country music. There is
talk of an appearance by the Blue
Crabs, Chief Big Water and the Blue
Light Soul, and Emmanuel Praise
Band from Emmanuel Baptist
Church.
"We are going to have a night full
of entertainment," said Karen
Philpott.


Bluegrass, BBQ to unite at March 5 cook-off


Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter

Two popular southern social
events are coming together for one
day in Crestview.
The Triple B Blackwater
Bluegrass Bar-B-Que Cook-off
competition will be held on Fri.
March 4 and Sat. March 5 on the
Spanish Trail Festival Grounds, at
the intersection of State Road 85


and Stillwell Avenue, in Crestview,
Florida.
"This is a Florida Bar-B-Que
Association-sanctioned event," said
Mike Wright Reynolds, festival
committee chairperson. "The public
is invited to come, smell and taste
some of the best Bar-B Que in the
South."
This is the first competition of
its type that the Florida Bar-B-Que
Association has held in the Florida


panhandle. FBA Contest Liaison
Phil Prescott says the association is
excited to be coming to Crestview.
"I was at a big Bar-B-Q compe-
tition this past weekend and the talk
around the competitors was coming
to Crestview next month," said
Prescott.
"Our association is excited and
we are going to do everything that
we can to make this a big event and
a big success."


In addition to the great Bar-B-
Que competition, the festival is also
providing great southern bluegrass
music, featuring talent from around
the panhandle. Musicians are
encouraged to bring their instru-
ments and join in the fun.

DOGS; from page A --


going to be permanent nerve dam-
age to the leg, and the dog may
never be able to use the leg again."
The pit bull involved in this
recent attack was raised in the same
home as a pit bull shot and killed by
Crestview police in 2004 for being
dangerous. The dog that attacked
the Dachshund was given to the 11-
year boy following the shooting
incident. The boy's parents insist
that the dog is harmless, and that the
attack was an isolated incident.
According to affidavits filed by
witnesses, the pit bull attacked the
Dachshund on the dachshund's
owner's front porch. The 11-year-
old boy's father insists that his son
was walking the pit bull on a leash
and thereby abiding by the city
ordinance. Crestview city ordinance
states very clearly that a dog, even
though on a leash, must be under
"complete control at all times."
Information gathered at the
scene by Officer Hilton indicated
the pit bull had gotten away from
the young boy and was loose on the
street.
Florida statute 767.01 states,
"owners of dogs shall be liable for
any damage done by their dogs to a
person or to any animal included in
the definitions of "domestic ani-
mal" and "livestock".
The incident is still under
investigation. The boy's parents do
not want the dog back and Animal
Control can not adopt out a dog that
has been classified as dangerous.
City taxpayers will pay for the ani-
mal control department to destroy
the pit bull.
Had the owners of the pit bull
wanted the dog back, they would

have been required to follow specif-
ic guidelines for owners of a dog
that has been classified as danger-
ous. The state statute says that a dog
determined by authorities to be dan-
gerous must be confined in an
enclosure with a roof and a sign
posted at any entrance stating that
the dog is dangerous. The dog must
also have permanent identification,
such as a tattoo or electronic
implantation. The dog owner must
notify local animal authorities if the
dog is moved to another address,
sold, given away, or dies.
Chris Hilton is the animal con-
trol officer for the city of Crestview.
Though Chris is not armed and has
no arresting authority he is consid-
ered part of the city's ordinance
enforcement.
"Dealing with the dog owners is
the most difficult thing," explained
Hilton. He said the owners don't
like him picking up their dog, but
then again their dog is two or three
blocks away from its home making
more dogs. "Some of the owners
can be pretty rude," continued
Hilton.
'The thing that would help the
most, and prevent us having to pick
up all these animals would be if the
animals' owners would be more
responsible and have their pet
neutered and spayed." Hilton does-
n't like the idea of having to destroy
the number of animals that they do.
Since the first of the year the city
has euthanised 46 animals.
Dr. Sue Binder, with the Center
for Disease Control, believes that
the destruction of many of these
dogs can be avoided.
"Dog attacks can be prevent-
ed," says Sue Binder, MD, and


CDC's National Center for Injury
Prevention and Control director.
"More responsible dog ownership;
education for dog owners and the
general public, especially children;
and better animal control can work
together to reduce dog bites."
About 40 percent of American
households have at least one dog,
according to The Humane Society
of the United States. Many of those
dog owners have homeowners
insurance, too.
The average cost of a dog bite
claim is $16,600.- More than $1
billion a year, according to the
Insurance Information Institute,
accounts for almost 1/4 of the total
number of homeowner's insurance
liability claims. As the costs of dog
bite litigation spirals, some insur-
ance companies are refusing to
write coverage for owners of certain
breeds.
Experts in animal behavior have
some excellent suggestions before
selecting a dog. Seek a veterinari-
an's advice about which dog is right
for your family and lifestyle.
Socialize your dog so it feels at ease
around people and other animals.
Don't put your dog in situations
where it may feel threatened or
teased. Follow leash laws don't let
your dog roam free.
Train your dog to obey basic
commands such as "stay," "sit," and
"come." Illness and pain can make
a dog more likely to bite. Don't play
aggressive games with your dog.
Spay/neuter your dog. Confine
your dog in a fenced yard or dog
run when it is not in the house.
Never tether or chain your dog

A waste of

tax money

I am outraged that people such as the
historical preservation committee think
they have the right to spend my tax
money in such a worthless manner as the
most recent endeavor of the Crestview
City Council!
I realize I am but one individual
taxpayer and business owner, but I find
very flawed thinking concerning the
preservation of the Alatex building in
Crestview. I cannot see how the City
Council can justify using taxpayer
money in any manner, whether through
grants or direct taxes, to try to preserve
an old factory.
The amount of money that is
necessary to refurbish and restore a
building in the condition of the old
factory, is not a worthwhile investment
of money available to the city. Neither
the architecture nor history of this '
building is unique or significant. The
cost to make this building safe and
functional is outrageous and could be
better used elsewhere, such as building a
much-needed community, center or
repairing and maintaining Crestview
"roads.
Sincerely, Rita Benz.

More important issues your paper could cover


Dear Jim,

Your above the fold lead story on the Oscar Meyer Wiener
Wagon left me halting refusing to purchase what is swiftly
becoming a childish sophomore waste of ink.
Please, for all of us mature citizens of Crestview re-
establish your priorities as editor. I would gladly purchase the
paper if it actually printed real local news!
It is time to focus on important matters such as:
* A regular column detailing info on South Main Street.
* A weekly interview on site with officials in charge.
* A photo spread on before and "after".
* Prints of layouts, design drafts, proposals, etc.
* The actual time table of contracts through completion.
* Interviews with local residents and retail shops on S. Main
Street.


* Photos of laborers wasting time at the city's expense!
* Estimates of current projects through completion.
* Use your "press" to press the city to get on the ball and get
moving on this project.
* Other important columns on removal of N. County water
Removal of North County Court House misrepresentation of
N. .County in County Commission. Crestview expansion
design proposals.
* Improving traffic flow of Hwy 85 under 1-10. Need for State
Hwy signs posted more clearly better lane designation -
repaint access lanes onto 1-10.
If you want more I have plenty!
The city needs a news leader not a weekly reader!

VIEWPOINT & COMMENTARY


The Miller


Report

"With a healthy, growing economy, with more
Americans going back to work, and with our
nation an. active force for good in the world -- the
state of our union is confident and strong." These
words resounded throughout the nation loud and
clear Wednesday night during President Bush's
State of the Union address. Those words could
not be more true. Sitting in the House chamber
and listening to our President describe the state of
our Union, I was reenergized by his ambitious
goals for the future. Congress has difficult tasks
set before them, however I am confident my
colleagues will unite and complete the work that
needs to be done this year.
On Sunday, Jan. 30, eight million brave Iraqis
struck terrorism a lethal blow. Wednesday night,
President Bush acknowledged the historical
significance ofAtefirst free eleeoieo4n Iraq and
the impact it ha;onrh:jp rgigj t6w world. For
the first ium in a ge~peautiqn.gpokorjumphed over
el in Iraq. Liberty tnumped oppression.
Freedom replaced fear in the hearts and minds of
millions of Sunnis, Shiites, and Kurds, and hope
was restored in the Middle East. President Bush
outlined his vision for spreading freedom
throughout the corners of the globe. He reiterated
his commitment to fight terror in all its forms and
he pledged vigilance in our efforts to protect the
homeland.
The President wants to bring this same
commitment and vision to work on America's
domestic needs. He has a comprehensive reform
plan for Social Security that preserves retirement
benefits for our children and our grandchildren
without affecting the current benefits of our
retirees and those who Will soon retire. The other
side's answer to the impending Social Security
crisis is fear and demagoguery. The opponents of
the President's plan have no vision for the future
of working Americans. If Congress continues to
put its head in the sand it will cost us $600 billion
a year, every year, until Social Security finally
goes bankrupt.
President Bush is right; to ensure prosperity
for future generations, we must reform
institutions, retirement plans, the tax code, our
healthcare system, and worker training programs
that were created for the world of yesterday, not
tomorrow. The President's State of the Union
address gave Congress a clear direction where
our great leader is taking the nation. I support
his efforts in spreading freedom throughout the
world, making tax cuts permanent, and
preserving and strengthening social security. In
consent with President Bush's remarks at the end
of his address to the nation, "In all this history,
even when we have disagreed, we have seen
threads of purpose that unite us. Our generation
has dreams of its own, and we also go forward

I have personally been in the House
chamber for many State of the.Union
speeches, and have seen others on
television. No matter who the President
is, they are a moving experience. For
many years, the State of the Union
address was in written form. In 1913,
Woodrow Wilson changed this by coming
to the Capitol to make the address.
Coolidge, in 1923, was the first to use
radio. In 1947, Truman was the first to
use television. In 1965, Johnson moved
the address to the evening to gain a
bigger audience. It is a well-scripted
event, from the members of the Senate,
the President's Cabinet, and the diplomats
filing in, to the dramatic moment when
the center door of the House swings
opens and the Sergeant at Arms
announces that the President of the
United States has arrived. Members of
Congress fall over each other to shake the
President's hand as he marches down the
aisle and, of course, to be seen on
television. The President must walk
slowly, shaking as many hands and
hugging as many people as possible.
Applause at the beginning is continuous,
and then the speech begins. The
President's party is quick to clap and to
jump up at every opportunity. The loyal
opposition claps at the appropriate time,
but makes clear its position on other
issues by refusing to stand or to clap. For
the first time in my experience, the
House chamber sounded somewhat like
the British House of Commons as
members said in tones loud enough to be
heard, "No". I thought this was
inappropriate. There is plenty of chance
to say "No" both before and after the
speech, as many reporters congregate in
Statutory Hall for the obligatory 20-
second press bites.
You can tell how the President feels
about the State of the Union as much
from his actions as his words. This
President was one of the most upbeat I've


seen. The polls may say he has only a 50% approval rating, but that
certainly has not impacted his vision, his plan, or his demeanor. I
thought his reference to the parents in the gallery of one of the
soldiers who died in Iraq was incredibly moving and tasteful. The
President has set forth an aggressive agenda, making social security
one of the keys to his success. It is an interesting paradox that the
Republicans are worried about trying to fix social security and the
Democrats want the status quo. Social security originated with the
Democrats and has been their issue for many years. The President,
in pushing changes in social security, has reached out to younger
Americans and to black Americans. He has made it clear that he is
willing to compromise, but something has to be done, whether
social security becomes critical in 2018 or 2045.
In listening to the Democrat responses, I can understand their
frustration of being in the minority. For all of my Congressional
career, we were in the minority in Congress, although we had
several Republican Presidents. It's important that there be the loyal
opposition and that issues, like social security, taxes, and Iraq, be
well debated. However, after a period of time of being in the
opposition, people begin to tune you out when all you do is
complain. The Democrats have been out of power for 11 years and
are falling into the same mindset Republicans did in the 1970s and
1980s. They don't like what the President is doing about social
security, but have no major reforms. They are not happy about Iraq,
but are having a hard time explaining the Iraqi election. Democrats
don't like the economy, but it is moving in the right direction and
over 2 million new jobs have been created. In order to win back the
House and/or the Senate, the Democrats are going to have to find
themes which sell with the ordinary American. I am not sure
whether Governor Dean, as the new the Democrat Chairman, can
help. I think that he may be underrated by Republicans, but also has
the potential to self-destruct.
There are numerous problems that the Bush agenda will face,
including lack of Republican support for social security, budget
cuts, and reverses in Iraq. But at the present time, the President is
on a roll. His enthusiasm and desire to make changes is contagious
and he is ndt poll-driven. He has set a course that he believes is
right for America and is putting all his political capital on the line.
He can be beat, and his programs can fail, but this will happen if,
and only if, the Democrats come up with common-sense
alternatives. We will know the answer to this by the end of this
year.

Mossy Head mystery companies hold promise for north Okaloosa


Lauren McLaughlin
News Bulletin Reporter
Two mystery companies tentatively com-
ing to Mossy Head could bring 450 jobs to
Walton County, possibly overflowing employ-
ment to north Okaloosa County.
"I think the number of job opportunities
that will be created there will certainly exceed
the number of people able to take those jobs in
the Mossy Head area," said Tom Powell, of the
Walton County Economic Development
Council (EDC).
The companies have asked the county not
to disclose their names to the public at this
point in the planning process. Currently, they
are labeled as "Project A" and "Project B."
One is a distribution center belonging to a
nationally known company that would require
50 acres of land. The second company would


need five acres.
Mossy Head has plans for an industrial
park between Highway 90 and Interstate 10
along State Road 285.
"It's going to be right there in our back
door," said Crestview Chamber of Commerce
Director Wayne Hanris, referring to the loca-
tion's convenience to those in north Okaloosa
who might find employment at the park.
"Everybody feeds off of it," he added. "It's
helpful to our community."
Mary Lou Reed, executive director of the
work force development board, also antici-
pates that the opportunities offered by the two
companies will affect both counties.
"I believe the new companies will be
recruiting from the north Okaloosa County
area as well as the Walton County area," she
said.
The benefits will be a simple result of cause


and effect. According to Reed, the companies
will improve job seeking for those looking for
employment, in turn, prodding local business-
es to be more competitive in finding the best
people suited for their jobs.
In addition to an increase in employment,
Harris predicts another benefit, especially for
the east side of Highway 90.
"That (the companies) will encourage resi-
dential growth over there," he said.
According to Reed, the Walton City
Council and board of county commissioners
realizes residential growth will create another
need more affordable housing. They are
already working with developers on a solution.
Independent of the employment increase,
residential growth, and potential for more
affordable housing, the companies could
encourage economic development in north
Okaloosa simply because those who live and


work in Mossy Head will likely come here to
spend some of their money.
"It's a win-win for everybody," said Harris.
"Who's the closest neighbor? Think about it."
So when will these mystery companies be
revealed?
"Businesses expect that their information
be kept confidential until they're ready to pub-
lically announce it," said Reed. "Until they
have signed on the bottom line, it's impossible
to give a timeline."
Powell said that one of the projects is plan-
ning to make a formal proposal to the Walton
County Commission within the next month or
two. At that point, the EDC will probably have
more information to release to the public.
"They (the projects) are a long way from
being sure things," he said. "It's anybody's
guess as to when they're going to move for-
ward."

"Through Community Promise,
we'll supply the peer advocates all
of the necessary tools and training
needed to take this new idea and
create a grass roots effort in their
neighborhood," said Cadwell.
OASIS applied for and received
from the CDC a federal grant for $1
million to help them make this pro-
ject work.
Cadwell believes that if she can
recruit least five volunteers from
each community that she meets
with, the community will become
more aware of what Community
Promise is all about.
Husband and wife team James
and Ruth Pate came to the meeting
recognizing the problem in their
African-American community and
wanted to get involved. Both
retired, they said that they wanted to
take the extra time they had to give
back something meaningful to their
community.
"I'm here because I'm con-
cerned about what's going on in my
community," said James Pate. "So
many people are not aware of how
serious a problem this is. My wife
and I are out on the streets everyday
trying to get this message out."
Mrs. James Pate is looking for
the answer that will change and
make a difference in her communi-
ty. "I hope to find the reason that
we can do something to help this
situation," said the soft-spoken Mrs.
Pate. "This stuff is killing these
folks, and I hope and I pray and ask
God that he'll let us find something,
anything, an answer to this prob-
lem."

"I think it's going to benefit both
the city employees and the commu-
nity," said Kennedy. "Things are
more accessible."
For instance, city employees can
log on under the administrative ser-
vices section and see requirements
for building codes, deadlines for
project submittals, and preapplica-
tion guidelines for commercial and
residential planning and zoning.
"Instead of having to make a
bunch of phone calls, they can look
at what's expected of them,"
Kennedy said. "That's going to save
the city time and money in answer-
ing a lot of questions."
Building permit forms, occupa-
tional licenses, and even applica-
tions for employment at local busi-
nesses can be downloaded online.
"That's nice as far as people
looking for jobs they can down-
load the application, fill it out, and
take it," Kennedy explained.
In addition to forms and applica-
tions, the site has files for the city
council members so people can get
to know them. Agendas give the
public an idea of what is being dis-
cussed at city council meetings.
"If you are a concerned citizen
and have specific issues, you can
log on and see what's being decid-
ed," advised Kennedy.
Information about local parks,
athletics, community announce-
ments and events, committee meet-
ings and the weather are also within
reach of your computer mouse.
Want to see some baby pictures
of The Hub City? Go to the city's
online photo album.
"Residents can see what
Crestview used to look like," said
Kennedy.
Teresa Gaillard, GIS
analyst/planning technician for the


city, who consults with Kennedy
about the site, thinks the most bene-
ficial feature is the public calendar.
"Everybody can keep updated
with the click of a button," she said.
Gaillard also admires the site's
modern, streamlined design.
"Their (the city council's) old
website was very basic," Kennedy
recalled. "They've seen a need to
get things up to date."
And now that Robert Sikes
Library has also seen that need,
joining the ranks of online databas-
es, perhaps it will be easier for you
to keep your reading up to date. too.

An antique clock that has been
missing since last spring has finally
created an irreparable rift between
two sisters in their sixties.
The sister who owned the clock
reported to police Monday, Feb. 7,
that she had given the clock, which


she had purchased at a
yard sale in Baker, to
her sister to fix. The
clock, worth $50, was
made in 1946 and had
a broken part. The
accusing sister's hus-
band testified that the
last time he saw the
clock was when he and


his wife had given it to the suspect-
ed sister to repair.
An officer immediately contact-
ed suspected sister in search of the
missing, possibly kidnapped, clock.
Suspected sister denied having the
clock in her custody, but agreed to
come in to the office and make a
sworn statement. She stated that she
had seen the broken clock but told

accusing sister she should find
someone else to fix it. This was the
last time she saw the clock.
On Feb. 3, her sister called to
ask if she'd fixed it yet, and she said
she didn't have it. The conversation
ended in a shouting match with sus-
pected sister hanging up on accus-
ing sister.
Because accusing sister cannot
prove that suspected sister has the
clock, she dropped charges on Feb.
9. The weary woman, long
estranged from her clock, wants
suspected sister to leave her alone.
But, who was the one pressing
charges?
If it was your dear, precious,
baby clock that was missing, you
would, too. Accused sister is

advised to take any pictures she has
of her missing clock and post them
around town. The sad reality is that
time may never tell who has the
clock. If it's not missing, the sisters
should consider two other possibili-
ties: either the clock has legs or
somebody has Alzheimer's.


Ex-wife overreacts
to ex-husband's
self-defense

An ex-wife complained to police
on Feb. 10 that her ex-husband had
pushed her down in her Holt mobile
home.


When an officer arrived at the
scene of the battery, she told him
her husband was a convicted felon.
Actually, other official sources ver-
ified that he had only been convict-
ed of a DUI and some traffic
offenses.
Not only did ex-wife complain
about her ex-husband, but also his
guns. She asked the police officer to
remove them from her home.
After the officer advised ex-hus-
band of his Miranda Rights, he
made a sworn statement that he was
merely defending himself when he
pushed his wife. He claimed she
had tried to kick him where the sun
doesn't shine. He pushed her away
from his body to avoid injury or a
sex change. Maybe he should have
reported battery, too.
The officer could not determine
an aggressor and no arrests were
made. The ex-couple told him that
they'd both been drinking and had
been divorced for 37 years, but
were currently living together to
take care of ex-husband's mother.
They stated that they do live in sep-
arate rooms in the house. Maybe
separate counties would be better -
for ex-husband anyway. Better safe
than sorry if ex-wife starts flailing
her leg again.

Man, smuggles a
butt-load of drugs

After a routine search of a
Hispanic male inmate arriving into
custody of the Okaloosa County Jail


on Feb. 6, a sergeant found drugs in
the inmate's anal cavity and they
weren't suppositories. Tests proved
that the two baggics removed con-
tained marijuana. Charges were
pressed against him. Guess he's no
longer sitting on a high.


Stealing
Looks


Good


After the Super Bowl on Feb. 8,
a woman and her husband returned
to their trailer to find someone had
broken into it. The only items miss-
ing were the wife's toiletries and
cosmetics. The wife believes the
husband's brother's girlfriend stole
the items out of spite.
The suspect shamelessly took
vital beauty products such as mois-
turizers, hand lotion, soaps,
cleansers, revitalizing mask, and -
the horror mud mask. A pair of
diamond earrings which the hus-
band had given his wife last
Valentine's Day were also stolen.
According to reports, police
have not contacted the suspect yet
"because of lack of information
such as a phone number."
The wife said she would be giv-
ing cops contact information for the
suspect as soon as she can find it.
The husband's brother should also
be on the lookout to see if his girl-
friend's skin appears more radiant
and supple. Wearing a mud mask
around the house could also be a
telltale sign.

Circuit overseer Jonathan Catapzaro will present three aspects of
heavenly wisdom during a two-day circuit assembly for Jehovah's
Witnesses.


Jehovah's Witnesses


circuit assembly planned

Jonathan Catanzaro, circuit minister for Jehovah's Witnesses,
announced a two-day circuit assembly, Feb. 19 and 20, at the
Panama City Marina. The theme "Be Guided by the Wisdom From
Above." James 3:17.
The first symposium, "Manifesting the Wisdom From Above in
Our Life," will help us to see what is involved in being chaste,
peaceable, reasonable, and ready to obey. Then the circuit overseer,
Jonathan Catanzaro, will give attention to three other aspects of
heavenly wisdom. The district overseer, Donald Amy, from World
Headquarters, Brooklyn, N.Y., will conclude the first day by show-
ing how Christian ministers, although viewed by some as "unlet-
tered and ordinary," are equipped to speak God's wisdom.-Acts
4:13.
On the second day, a symposium entitled "Pursue the Things
That Are Upbuilding" will help us to identify and avoid things that
can tear us down spiritually. It will also show us how we can build
up others at congregation meetings, in the field ministry, and in the
family circle. The public talk, "How Godly Wisdom Benefits Us,"
will deepen our appreciation for the benefits we receive as we apply
divine principles in our lives. The concluding talk, "Acting Upon
Divine Wisdom Safeguards Us," will strengthen our resolve to turn
to Jehovah for wisdom during these last days.
A highlight of every assembly is the baptism of new disciples.
The Theocratic Ministry School and the Watchtower Study for the
week will also be featured on the program.
Everyone is invited. No collection is ever taken.

THINK A





JOHN DEERE'S



OUT OF YOUR REACH?

YOUR ARMS JUST GOT


A LITTLE LONGER.


Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter
Local car dealers are getting
behind the wheel, turning the igni-
tion on, and starting the careers of
some Crestview High School stu-
dents looking towards the automo-
tive repair business. The teenagers
will work as interns in their service
departments.
"I was one of the initial service
managers that met with the board at
the high school to get this program
going," explained Don Shepherd,
service -manager at Crestview
Chrysler Dodge. "I feel that young
people that live in the area should
have the first opportunity to fill a
position here, and we want to play a
role in these kid's future, and want
them to play a role in ours."
Crestview High School automo-
tive program instructor Darryl
Brooks loves to see this classroom
program branch out into a real world
work environment, and recognizes
the enormous advantage that gives
his students.
"The kids are actually using the
latest up-to-date equipment. These
are things that my budget at the
school could never keep pace with,"
explained Brooks. "New cars come
in here every day. No one is going to
bring a new car into my shop at
school and let me play with it."
One year ago 17-year-old
Devon Wisdon had no idea what he
was going to do with his life. School
was something he did only because
he had to. Wisdon enrolled in the
automotive class at Crestview High
School and hence began his journey
through hot metal, greasy rubber
hoses, and interesting tiny electronic
components. Ajourney that will lead
him not only to a high school diplo-
ma, but a career field, and with the
help of Crestview Chrysler Dodge,
some valuable technical education.
"We're going to offer Devon the
opportunity when he graduates from
high school this spring to go to some
Chrysler Dodge training'schools,"
explained Shepherd. "All manufac-
turers have their own factory certifi-
cations that they require if you're
working on their vehicle. We're
willing to invest in these kid's
future."
A year ago Wisdon says he was-
n't even sure that he was going to
graduate from high school. "I had no
idea what I wanted to do," said
Wisdon. "I never would have
dreamed that not only would I grad-
uate, but then go on to a specialized
school for automotive factory certifi-
cation."
Wisdon' sy' l'e' owes a' lot 't

giving him this opportunitl '\On


thing that Wisdon said he learned
from Mr. Brooks that he has found to
be so true in his real world experi-
ence at the Dodge service center is,
"Work smarter not harder," said
Wisdon. "Is there a better way to go
about completing this task? That's
something I repeat to myself all the
time while at work in the service
center."
David Summers has been an
automotive technician for 15 years.
He insists that Wisdon have a great
future in the business if he wants.
Summers make it a point to let
Wisdonhave a part in every phase of
a repair order. "I have him do every-
thing from computer scan reading to
installing rack and pinion, brakes.
Anything we do I let him get
involved with it."
Evan Miesch, another intern
from the automotive program, trans-
ferred to CHS after his sophomore
year from Niceville High School,
where he focused on computer tech-
nology. Miesch is currently intern-
ing in the Award Chevrolet service
center. His supervisor, Tony Sayer,
referred to Miesch previous comput-
er training as a huge asset for the
young service technician's future.
"We have no books anymore,"
explains Sayer. "Everything is done
on the computer. All of the techni-
cians are assigned a number; you go
to the computer and log in the com-
putei recognizes that your qualified
for this job, so do it next. Computer
skills are essential."
Miesch is the first one to say he
understands the opportunity he has
been given. "I have so much more
hands on training here at the dealer-
ship," said Miesch. "The variety of'

work that I'm assigned at Award's
service center is much broader than I
ever imagined."
Miesch likes the opportunity of
working with Award Chevrolet's ser-
vice technician, Tony Sayer. Sayer
has taken Miesch under his wing and
is teaching him valuable skills under
the hood. "I wish that I could have
had this opportunity when I got start-
ed," said Sayer. "I challenge Evan
every chance I get," he explained.
"To me the best way to learn is to get
right into it and get your hands dirty,
so that's what I do with Evan."
Miesch thinks he would like to
pursue a career in mechanical engi-
neering and says that his experience
at Award is leading him closer to that
goal. "Hey, maybe one day I'll be
designing engines for someone,
making them less complicated for
technicians to repair."


Ken Nielsen/The News Bulletin
Two Crestview High School juniors have the opportunity to travel free of charge to Washington D.C.
thanks to their electricity supplier, CHELCO. Kathy Morrow, the Youth Tour Coordinator at CHELCO,
informed Danielle Thornton and Michael Moore they were the winners at CHS and that they will
soon be traveling to Tallahassee to compete against other high school juniors from Florida.


Area students to compete for trip to D.C.


Tara M. Grant
News Bulletin Reporter

CHELCO, Touchstone Energy,
The Florida Electric Cooperative
Association, and the National Rural
Electrical Cooperative Association
in Washington D.C. have chosen 10
local students to take a trip to
Tallahassee.
The program called Youth Tour
occurs annually. Students compete
against each other all over the
nation to earn a free trip to
Washington D.C., where they may
have the experience of a lifetime by
touring our nation's capitol along
with intellectual equals who are
also interested in America's govern-
mental process.
Initially, the regional CHELCO
office sends letters to their cus-
tomers' households informing them
of the competition. Only juniors in
high school are eligible for the trip.
They are asked to write an essay
describing why they should be cho-
sen to be Youth Tour
Representatives.
This year, the two qualifying
students from Crestview High
School arc Michael Moore and
Daniclle Thornton, both 16.
Moore earned his spot on the
trip to Tallahassee because of his
exceptionally high grades and pas-
sion for law.
"I'm planning on earning a
degree in business law when I go to
college," Moore said.
Thornton is an ambitious stu-


dent who sees many opportunities
in her future, this trip being one of
them.
"I'm undecided about what kind
of career path I want to take later in
my life. Right pow, I'm exploring
my options, and I think this trip will
be a great way to help me decide."
The purpose of the program is to
get students out of the classroom
and familiarize them with our gov-
ernment first hand. There will be an
emphasis on educating the students
on electricity and the cooperative
way of doing business.
"In this program we hope to give
them the skills necessary to
become a leader," stated Kathy
Morrow, the Youth Tour
Coordinator at CHELCO.
The second step to qualification
is a question and answer interview
held at the CHELCO headquarters
in DeFuniak Springs on March, 3rd.
Moore and Thornton will meet with
three judges for ten minutes to con-
duct an interview. The judges will
assess their eligibility to be a Youth
Tour Representative in Washington
D.C.
Regardless of how the interview
goes, both of them will be going to
Tallahassee on March 16th, along
with two other people of their
choice. That evening they will
attend a banquet and the winners
will be announced. Two boys and
two girls will be going Washington
D.C. on June 18 for seven days.
This program was start
Linden Johnson when he a,


Senator in 1957. CHELCO has
been involved in the program for 23
years and has sent nearly 60 local
students to Washington, D.C. and
350 to Tallahassee.
"The great thing about this is
that this won't cost your parents a
thing," Morrow said to Moore and
Thornton.
In Tallahassee, they will visit
The Tallahassee History and
Natural Science Museum, see an
Imax movie, and tour the
Planetarium at the Challenger
Learning Center.
About 25 students from Florida
will qualify to go to Washington
D.C. Eighteen hundred Youth Tour
Representatives from the nation
will be there.
The representatives will learn
more than the average tourist while
in our nation's capitol. They will
meet with legislative officials to
learn about the legislative process
and where it takes place.
There has been a significant
amount of Youth Tour
Representatives in Washington,
D.C. from CHS. Matt Hester earned
the trip last year.
"He was a very wonderful Youth
Tour representative," Morrow said.
"We had so much fun with him on
the trip."
The board of directors a
CHELCO feels so strongly aboi.
the program and its value that they
have changed the number of
Washington, D.C. representatives in
recc vecars from only two to four.

Military death benefits due for change


John Parrott
News Bulletin Correspondent
In what may become the
most overdue change to military
benefits since 1908, Congress is
on the verge of passing a law
that would substantially
increase death benefits paid to
survivors of active duty person-
nel killed in action.
At present, a one-time tax-free
death payout of twelve thou-
sand four hundred dollars is
paid to surviving families and
spouses of active duty members
killed in the line of military
duty, and this is the only mone-
tary guarantee they have.
However, they can receive a
taxable life insurance policy up
to two hundred fifty thousand,
but that depends on how much
the soldier, sailor or airman can
afford in out of pocket premi-
ums.
Realistically, lower to mid
level grads cannot afford the
higher rates and opt for the
average sum of one about hun-
dred thousand dollars.
In today's market, one hun-
dred thousand dollars goes
nowhere toward raising a fami-
ly and Social Security does not


provide an adequate safety net.
That leaves the lower echelon
military family high and dry,
and this is what congress and
the joint chiefs is trying to
redress.
TSgt. David A. jablonski, Air
Force Print News, reports Air
Force General T. Michael
Moseley, Air Force Vice-Chief of
Staff testified before the senate
Armed Service Committee Feb
1, and said, "We can do better to
address the benefits and com-
pensation for them (military
members) and their families."
According to the same Air
Force Print News article, United
States Senator Joseph
Lieberman summed up the sen-
timent of the committee by say-
ing, "The current situation is
simply wrong
Both Democrats and
Republican legislators agree
something needs to be done
because the old payout system
does nothing to adequately
compensate the loss of the mili-
tary breadwinner. In fact some
legislators want to expand the
compensation package to
include non-combat deaths,
which the proposed package
does not address.


U.S. Senator George Allen, of
Virginia said the proposed legis-
lation did not go far enough,
according to reports from the
Association of the U.S. Army
news article dated 7 Feb 2005.
Consider this, survivors of 9-
11 are getting a federal handout
of nearly two million dollars per
family. It was this compensa-
tion package that raised the ire
of military leaders, who high-
lighted the inordinate disparity
between the 9-11 victims and
those who have died in combat.
Under the new benefit plan,
the one time tax-free benefit
would rise to one hundred thou-
sand dollars, and life insurance,
which is now pegged at two
hundred fifty thousand, would
rise to four hundred thousand.
This is a start at least, because
military families have gotten the
short end of the stick far too
long. It is time they started get-
ting decent compensation for
the loss of their provider and

In a unanimous vote by the city

Administration and Public Safety

"What we have essentially done

explained Brenda Crosson, plan-

Sunday


View


The media (the newspaper
you are reading being an out-
,",j standing exception) is doing
almost all it can to denigrate the
Church, but the people of God
should not buy into that picture.
We need a very noble and exalt-
ed view of God's Church to be
held in our minds. I quote a
poem to which I have never seen
a name attached:


Have we lost the joy in being with God's people?


You ask ine why
1I gtoo chllrcih?
I give /iy' m indl a
care l search.
HB'recaulse I nteed
I 111 to breathe the
air
Where there s an
atmlosphere of prayerr
I [ teed tlte ]IIIty l. tl/t lc c'la'cles sing --
T71ey set il'yfaith and hope a-wing;
T7ley keep old truthlls ill memlory,N green,
Reveal the worth of things unseen.
Because ny neighbor needs to go-
His faith in right is rather low;
lHe needs the church to hold Itint fast
To those great truths that always last;
And when he sees me on my wa y
It draws him to the church to pray;
And both our hearts are ifted tup
To heavenly places where we sup.


Because mly hboy is watching ime
7l, note whatever/ he cant seet
77tir tells him what his father thinks,
Andl with his eager soul he drinks
Ti'e things I do in daily wialk,
ice iitings I say in daily talk.
If I with hi lthle church will share,
My son will make his friendships there.
Because the C chttiil builds ip the State,
Breaks down the' Iarriers of hate,
And helps to spread unselfish life,
Allay all bickering and strife,
Sustains a wholesomie public health,
And builds a righteous commonwealth,
A joyous place in which to live
With tall the blessings God can give.

This is so true, even today, as
people express their disdain for
"the organized church." Would
they like better a disorganized


church? As others put the
Church down, God's people
should lift up what is called in
Scripture, "the Bride of Christ."
Men, would you let someone
put clown your "bride?" To
slightly change a Merle Haggard
song, "When you running' down
my bride, man, you walkin' on
the fighting' side of me!" Of
course, we are not going to fight
someone over their putdown of
the Church, but we should faith-
fully testify as to its worth. The
Church is made up of individu-
als, which we ought to highly
value for Christ's sake.
A man tried to sell a horse to
a nineteenth century pastor,


Henry Ward Beecher. The
farmer said it was, "a good sad-
dle horse, a good buggy horse,
and a good carriage horse. He
works double with any other
horse on either side of the
tongue. In short, he is a good all-
around horse and a good team
worker." The pastor replied that
he couldn't buy the horse, but he
sure would like to have him as
one of his church members!
Over the years I have known
many good "workhorses" in
many of God's churches.
The Apostle Paul addressed
the Philippian Church this way:
"My brethren, dearly beloved
and longed for, my joy and


crown, ...my
dearly
beloved" (Phil.


4:1). In one sen-
tence he calls
them "dearly beloved" twice.
That's almost cuddlin' lan-
guage! It ought to be a joy to be
in the midst of the "dearly
beloved." Granted, some inside
the church are not such joyful
company, but we should never
loose our joy in being with
God's people, for they are good
people-good because of the
dearly beloved and good Christ
within their hearts.

tor of Cornerstone Ministries

New members join commission


Two new members have
joined the Okaloosa County
Commission on the Status of
Women. Members of the
Commission are composed of
appointments by the Board of
County Commissioners and rep-
resentatives of various women's
organizations. The new mem-
bers are: Lois Hoyt, appointed
by County Commissioner Elaine
Tucker, and Jeannette Debs, rep-
resenting the Okaloosa County
Chapter of the National
Organization for Women
(NOW).
The Commission on the

Florida, now have commissions.


Jeannette Lois
Debs Hoyt


The Okaloosa Commission was
established in 1995 to represent
the interest and concerns of all
the women of Okaloosa County.
The achievements of the local
commission include the nomina-


tion and induction of two
Okaloosa County women into
the Florida Women's Hall of

Niceville.
Each year the commission
accepts nominations for the

Red Cross declares critical O- blood shortage


A slowdown in blood dona-
tions during the winter,months is
unfortunately nothing new. It
seems that the immediate period
(up to 60 days) following New
Year is especially a hard time- to
get people to make the time to
give blood.
We are again experiencing
S severe shortage of O negative
units, which are the most critical
for trauma victims and many
other patients who undergo major
surgery or are being treated for
serious illness. Premature babies
and their moms, leukemia, sickle
cell and cancer patients, as well as
bur and trauma victims count on
us for life.
0 negative blood is the univer-
sal blood donor-anyone can
receive this blood type. "That's
why it is so critical we have some


ready," Beddingfield added.
Donating blood is safe and easy-
you can't get sick or get a disease.
All supplies are used one time
ONLY for you and then destroyed.
You must be at least 17 years
old, weigh at least 110 lbs. and be
in general good health to give
blood. Blood is an emergency
medicine and must be available
and ready for use before it is need-
ed.
As of today, Red Cross has
backorders for O- blood ASAP
from hospitals in the Alabama and
Central Gulf Coast Region, which
includes Alabama, the Mississippi
Gulf Coast and the Florida
Panhandle, according to Mark
Harmon, Red Cross Director of
Product Management. O negative
inventory is very low, Harmon
added.


"Blood donors can give every
56 days (8 weeks). We are asking
people to donate blood today and
sponsor a blood drive where they
work, play or worship," said Mark
Beddingfield, COO of the
American Red Cross Alabama and
Central Gulf Coast Region.
To schedule a blood donation
or sponsor a blood drive, People
who know they have O negative
blood in Alabama, Mississippi
Gulf Coast and the Florida
Panhandle are asked to make an
appointment and donate. Call 1-
800-GIVE LIFE (1-800-448-3543) to
find a Red Cross center or blood
drive without delay to ensure that
blood is there for hospital patients
when they need it, Beddingfield
added. Donors can also go to the
Red Cross web site at
www.alacgc.org.


Arthritis, a disease that caus-
es pain, lqss of movement
and sometimes swelling of
the joints, is the nation's
leading cause of disability
among Americans over age
15. In 1985, 35 million
Americans had arthritis,
according to the Arthritis
Foundation. Today more than
70 million Americans, or
nearly one in three adults,
have arthritis.
A serious chronic health
problem, arthritis is actually an
umbrella term for more than
100 medical conditions, includ-
ing:


Dr. Julio Silva
Diplomat, Americar
Board of Family
Practice


Osteoarthritis, a degenerative
joint disease in which bone-
covering cartilage deteriorates;
Rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune dis-
ease mostly affecting women in which the
joint lining becomes inflamed as part of the
body's immune activity;
Gout, most often attacking small joints in
men, especially the big toe;
Juvenile arthritis, a general term for arthri-
tis that occurs in children; ,
Scleroderma, a disease of the body's con-
nective tissue that causes a thickening and
hardening of the skin; and
Fibromyalgia, a painful condition of the
muscles and attachments to the bone mostly
in women.
In each of these conditions, arthritis affects
the joints, where two or more bones meet.
Arthritis causes joint pain, swelling, stiffness
and inflammation and leads to weakness and
instability. Depending on the location of the
arthritis, it can interfere with daily tasks such
as walking, climbing stairs, using a computer
or cutting food.
Although the exact cause of arthritis is


unknown, there are several
risk factors that can con-
tribute to the development of
arthritis. Age can increase the
chance of arthritis, especially
osteoarthritis. Additionally,
arthritis occurs more fre-
quently in women and people
who are obese. Some jobs
that require heavy lifting can
also increase arthritis risk as
the repetitive movements and
additional stress to the joints
can cause an injury that leads
to arthritis.
Half of Americans with arthritis
erroneously believe nothing can
be done about their condition.
Here are some tips to relieve
the stress of arthritis:


Protect your joints. Minimize excess stress
on your joints. Keeping your weight down
helps lower damaging pressure on your hips
and knees.
Get moving. Exercise reduces fatigue and
increases range of movement. Water exercise
is an excellent preventative activity.
Pick, pour or peel. Grab a delicious orange
or pour a tall glass of refreshing OJ because
Vitamin C reduces the risk and progression
of osteoarthritis. Oranges contain folic acid,
which reduces side effects of arthritis drug
methotrexate and the risk of cardiovascular
disease.
Check out your options. The Food and
Drug Administration has approved several
drugs in recent years, so ask your doctor
about new treatment options.

Arthritis sufferers have many options to treat
and reduce the effects of this condition. For
more information about preventing or treat-
ing arthritis, or to make an appointment, call
Gateway Medical Clinic at 423-0061.

AmeriCapital Offers Fringe Benefits


Lauren McLaughlin
News Bulletin Reporter

Overwhelmed by all the mort-
gage companies? Why not look
beyond the typical services to see
who has fringe benefits tailored to
your time and convenience?
AmeriCapital Branch Manager
Tony Johnston knows that accessi-
bility is one of the most indispens-
able benefits he can offer a cus-
tomer, and he does his best to be
there exactly when you need him.
"Anybody can get in touch with
me, all they have to do is call," he
said. And he means anytime.
Just last week, Johnston was attend-
ing a funeral, yet he still took the
time to take some urgent calls. He
wants to be there for customers
when it is convenient for them.
"Unless I'm in the middle of
carrying the casket out during the
funeral, you know," he said.
Workaholic? Not quite. Smart
business is more like it.
"Service is always going to be
the same with everybody (mortgage
companies)," said Johnston.
"Accessibility is going to be .the
defining point."
Many people call Johnston after
hours, making him accessible for
about 20 hours. Most mortgage
companies are only available for
calls 12 hours at most.
"That's our niche to be acces-


sible," Johnston said.
However, he does have to draw
the line somewhere.
"I stop around 9 or so," he
explained. "But if it is an emer-
gency, I pick up the phone."
When you're wading through
the sea of mortgage companies, you
might also consider AmeriCapital
because of its Christian values.
To step into Johnston's office or
even to look closely at one of his
business cards, you would soon
realize that AmeriCapital is a
Christian-based organization.
"We're here to help folks,"
Johnston explained. "We're not
here to take advantage of them in
any way."
Recently, Johnston helped a
young military couple, first-time
home buyers, to upgrade from a
double-wide trailer to a regular
house with the same payment they
were making for the double-wide.
He sits down with his customers
one on one to look over their budget
and give them the best scenario to
accomplish their goals. Sometimes,
he is able to move people up to the
next level of housing with the same
payment they would have made for
a lower-scale home.
"They're just naYve to how the
process works," he said. "Whether
it's going to be the $500,000 house
or the $50,000 home, we're going
to try to work for their budget."


AmeriCapitbl is based in
Birmingham, AL. Johnston's office
opened last September and is the
farthest south of any branch, as well
as the first to open in Florida.
AmeriCapital has been part of the
National Association of Mortgage
Brokers (NAMB) since 1985 and is
also a member of the Crestview
Chamber of Commerce.
Tony had lived in Okaloosa
County since 1990 and then moved
to Alabama in 2001. He returned to
the area last year with the opening
of his new office. His wife is also a
native of Florida.
"Since we're from this area, it
made logical sense to start here," he
said. "We want to promote the
hometown atmosphere."
AmeriCapital plans to open
branches in Fort Walton, Destin,
Pensacola, and Mobile as well. But
with the recent population boom in
Crestview, he should have enough
business right here for now.
"Residential, single-family
dwellings that's our bread and
butter," he said.
AmeriCapital offers mortgages
for any type of property, and loan
programs for all types of credit.
Second mortgages with equity lines
and consolidation loans are also
available. Overall, Johnston
believes that he offers more pro-
grams and better rates than com-
petitors.


AmeriCapital Branch Manager Tony Johnston and his wife,
Maeghan, returned to their native Florida with daughter Riley and
son Cade last September when the mortgage company opened
an office in Crestview.


"My success has been extraordi-
nary, and it has just been from faith,
not fate," he said. "We try to give


people that chance to do business
with a Christian-based company if
they want to."

The Crestview High School
wrestling team continues to make his-
tory this season in only its fourth year
of existence.
The Bulldogs claimed three indi-
vidual district championships this past
weekend in Fort Walton Beach, finish-
ing fourth as a team their best fin-
ish yet in a district meet.
Crestview will also be sending an
all-time high nine wrestlers to this
weekend's Class 2A Region 1 meet,
which the Bulldogs are hosting.
"I thought we had a really good
chance of competing for the district
title, but we had a couple of things not

Female grappler shines

with a landmark season

Tara M. Grant
News Bulletin Reporter

Keeping up with the boys on Crestview High School's wrestling team is
not a problem for 15-year-old Chelsea Gardner. At 5'1" and 112 pounds she
has made CHS history by becoming the first female to wrestle at a tourna-
ment at CHS.
She poses quite a challenge to her competitors. Her first varsity competi-
tion was the Dawg Pound Classic held at CHS earlier this season. She went
up against a boy from Chules High School and \on it took her only 29 sec-
onds to pin him making her the first female to win a tournament
Her teammates treat her equally out on the mat. Some people see her dif-
ferently. The first event she was scheduled to compete in was held at
Pensacola Christian High School, however, she was forced to forfeit the
match..
"The school has a rule that boys can't wrestle girls," stated the CHS
wrestling coach, Jeff Fowler. Unscathed, Gardner went on to win at her next
competition.

In preparation for this week's district tournaments the

Bulldogs sweeping the season series with a 65-53 victory.
Baker hung tough in the early going, taking a 10-7 into
the second quarter. The Gators actually stretched the lead
to six with just over five minutes in the half. But
Crestview finished the half on a 17-8 run to take a 27-24
lead into the intermission.
Things stayed close in the third, until Crestview went
on a late run to bump the lead to 50-40.
From there, Crestview kept control.
Baker's Chase Combest led all scorers with 22 points,
while teammate Drew Griffith added 14.
Jeremy Williams led Crestview with 13 points, while

Baker puts an astounding eight


on Class A all-state football teams


Defensive end
John Davis leads the
way with a first-team
selection.
Steve Andrews
Managing Editor

The Baker football team earned
a trip to the state playoffs for the
first time in three years this past
season. And the Gators were recent-
ly rewarded by having eight players
named the the Class A all-state foot-
ball teams.
"I think it is impressive to have
that many kids honored. I've never
heard of it," outgoing Baker coach
Bill Sharp said.
Defensive end John Davis led
the way for the Gators, earning first
team honors.
Wide receivers Chase Combcst
and Shaun Cobb, the only sopho-


more 'of the bunch, brought home
second team honors.
Running back Adam Henry, cen-
ter Caleb'Forehand, defensive tack-
le Chris Grace and quarterback
Drew Griffith earned third team
honors.
Wide receiver Joe Moore was an
honorable mention selection.
"All but John Davis and Chris
Grace were honored for offense,"
Sharp said. "I think that's a tribute
to Coach (Vernon) Ward's offense.
We moved the ball this year, scored
a lot of points and got a lot of
yardage."
Sharp admitted that he was
Iplc.i.r.mils surprised to see so many
selections from his squad, especial-
ly considering that Gators finished
second in their district and were
ousted in the first round of the play-
ofls.
"If you see six or seven kids
from one school on an all-state
team, that's like seeing six or seven


Steelers in the Pro Bowl." Sharp
said. "But the Steelers were 15-1
this year, so you would expect to
see that."
Davis played on both sides of
the line for the Gators this past sea-
son, leading the team with nine
sacks and 18 tackles for a loss.
Cobb, who still has two more
years remaining, gives the Gators
hope for the future.
"As the year went on we felt that
Shaun was one of our best
receivers," Sharp said. "He's come
a long way and he's got a chance to
be a great player."
For the outgoing seniors, it was
a great way to end their high school
football careers.
"It feels good because most of
us are seniors and we've played
together for basically all of our
lives," Combest said. "It also shows
that even though we are a small
school, we can put out some good
players."

first winning record and its first tour-
nament victory. Now Fowler hopes to
make more news.
"Realistically, I think we have a
great chance of putting four or five of
these kids through to state," he said.
"A couple of them have put them-
selves in position to really do well.
"But it all comes down to the six
minutes on the mat, so we'll have to
wait and see."
The regional tournament will


include 29 teams from across northern
Florida. It will begin inside the
Crestview gymnasium on Friday at
noon. Things will continue Saturday
beginning at 9 a.m. The championship
rounds should begin around 6 p.m. on
Saturday.
The top four wrestlers in each
weight class in the regional tourna-
ment will then advance to the state
tournament to be held in Lakeland on
Feb. 24-26.


Fowler is hoping his troops remain
competitive and can help take the
young program to the next level.
"We're coming along each year.
We have bettered our win total every
year," he said. "Four years into the
program and we're competing for
titles already. I think that's pretty
good.
"Our kids have really worked hard
and they listen to what we're trying to
teach them."

there and do what you have to do to
win the match, then it's not going to
be uncomfortable," explained
Gardner. "It really doesn't bother me,
but I've always been a tomboy. I grew
up beating up my cousins, so it's
never bothered me."
"Anything indecent is the farthest
thing from your mind out there,"
added Fowler.
The wrestlers from opposing
schools greet Gardner with stares and
whispers at matches.
"I get so much attention when I go
to a tournament. Sometimes it really
bothers me to know that they're sit-
ting a few yards away, talking about
me."
Most of the time, Gardner gets the
positive attention she deserves. The
Dawg Pound Classic was held in the
cafeteria at CHS with two mats on the
floor. While Gardner was wrestling,
another pair was wrestling on the
opposite mat
"When I pinned the guy from
Chiles, the entire cafeteria just went


crazy! It was really shocking, because
I didn't know that so many people
were watching. To have everybody
cheering for me was pretty cool."
During practice in the Field House
at CHS, Gardner wrestles boys who
are several classes above her, includ-
ing her boyfriend, Thomas Bortner.
He weighs 215 and enjoys having a
girlfriend he can relate to.
"It's nice that we have the same
hobby. We can go through matches
and talk about what we did, and she
gets everything that I say and I get
everything that she says," said
Bortner.
Gardner recently moved to
Crestview from North Carolina,
where she was an exceptional cheer-
leader.
"She was on the cheerleading
team for a long time and she compet-
ed on the county, state and national
level," boasted her mom, Teresa
Gardner. "So, I asked her if she want-
ed to cheer when we came to Florida
and she said no, she's accomplished


that, she's ready to accomplish some-
thing else."
This is her first year wrestling in
competitions. While she was living in
North Carolina, she wrestled on the
side and focused on her first sport,
cheerleading.
The CHS varsity wrestling team
was established in the 2001-2002
school year. Jeff Fowler has coached
the team since it's formation and has
had girls on his team before.
"We have had a few girls on the
team, she's the first to wrestle at a
sanctioned varsity competition," said
Fowler.
At school, the other students are
curious about her position on the
team.
"When I'm wearing my warm-up
jacket that says 'Bulldog Wrestler' on
it a few people will come up to me
and ask ifI wrestle or if I'm just wear-
ing my boyfriend's jacket, but I tell
them I'm actually on the wrestling
team and most of them think it's
cool."

Carmen the Opera comes to The Arts Center.JI


Carmen the Opera comes to The Arts Center ___BUM_____


Bizet's Carmen, the classic
opera, is heating up the
Mainstage at The Arts Center at
Okaloosa-Walton College Friday,
March 4 at 7:30 p.m. Hot Spanish
rhythms, flamenco dancers and a
timeless story of love, passion
and murder are the primary ele-
ments of Carmen as presented by
Teatro Lirico D'Europa, a
European opera company which
plays to rave reviews across the
country. The opera will be sung
in French and English subtitles


will be projected above the stage
for easy viewing.
In the world of opera, Carmen
is considered one of the genre's
primary productions. Carmen has
probably appeared on more
stages than any heroine in history
- and with plenty of good rea-
sons. Chief among them is com-
poser Georges Bizet's sparkling
score which easily contains more
hit tunes than any opera before -
or since this feisty heroine came
along.


The opera Carmen will be presented on Friday, March 4 at The
Arts Center at Okaloosa-Walton College.

With its gritty depictions of
cigarette factory girls, gypsies,
criminals, soldiers and bull fight-
ers, Bizet's opera seizes us with
its instant and colorful allure: a
world peopled by dangerous
people in desperate situations. In
the opera the unlikely heroine
Carmen dances her way in to the
hearts of Don Jose, the handsome
officer, and Escamillo, the dash-
ing Torero, who battle for her
love. Carmen is arrested by Don
Jose but he is quickly swayed by
her beauty and releases her.
Carmen and Don Jos6 run away
together but soon Carmen sees
Escamillo and quickly forgets
about Don Jos. Jealousy, anger
and lust drive the characters in
Carmen through a fiery love story
and finally to a tragic end.
The beautiful and elusive
Carmen is portrayed in this pro-
duction by Kirstin Chavez. This
young American actress has per--
formed the role of Carmen with
the New York City Opera, Tokyo
City Opera and other major
opera companies throughout the
United States. Because of her
striking stage presence, dramatic
intensity and natural physical
beauty, she is gaining acclaim as
one of the definitive Carmens of


Gif0


the day. Ms. Chavez is the winner
of several national opera compe-
titions including The Sullivan
Foundation, The George London
Foundation and the Metropolitan
Opera National Council
Auditions.
The orchestra will be conduct-
ed by Krassimir Topolov. The
Bulgarian maestro has been the
principal conductor for Teatro
Lirico D'Europa since 1995. In
addition to conducting hundreds
of performances for the compa-
ny's European tour he has con-
ducted all seven American tours
for the company.
This passionate story will
please opera lovers and entice
those new to this timeless musi-
cal art.
Tickets can now be purchased
online for all performances at The
Arts Center. Visit
www.owc.edu/arts and go to the
Buy Tickets hotlink. Tickets can
also be purchased by calling the
Box Office at 729-6000, or in per-
son Monday to Friday 9 am to 4
