'Playing football is not their biggest concern right now


'Playing football is not their biggest concern right now'


* Crestview's game against New Orleans Lawless next
Friday night has been cancelled as Louisiana natives try to
recover from the devastation left by Hurricane Katrina.


Steve Andrews
Managing Editor
Crestview football coach Matt
Brunson doesn't mind having two
weeks to prepare for rival Pace, but he
would much rather be playing a game
next Friday night.
The Bulldogs' home game against
Alfred Lawless High School of New
Orleans, scheduled for next week, has
been cancelled due to the destruction in
Louisiana left by Hurricane Katrina.
"I don't know the exact address of
where Lawless High School is, but if it's
anywhere near the pictures I have been
watching on CNN, playing football is


not their biggest concern right now,"
Brunson said.
In a letter emailed from Okaloosa
County Superintendent of Schools Don
Gaetz to county principals on Tuesday,
Gaetz said area schools are now back to
normal after the Category 4 hurricane
led to the cancellation of school on
Monday.
He acknowledged that schools to
our west weren't quite as fortunate.
During a visit to Fort Walton Beach
High School on Tuesday, Gaetz said one
teacher "reminded students and all of
us that our inconveniences, even our
power outages, pale next to the very
real suffering of Lawless High School in

New Orleans."
Lawless was scheduled to play at
Fort Walton Beach Friday night, "but
floodwaters have reached the second
floor of the school," Gaetz's letter said.

Doing what we can to help


Community

reaches out

to refugees

Ken Nielsen
Bulletin Reporter
The thousands of people that just
days ago were being referred to by the
media as evacuees have now turned
into thousands of refugees.
Not since the Dust Bowl of the
1930's has our country experienced
such a displacement of Americans
from their homes.
Here locally the community has
opened its arms, doors, and wallets to
assist the hundreds of homeless farm-
lies that continually arrive in
Crestview.
Since Katrina's landfall early
Sunday morning, more than 300 peo-
ple have come through the shelter at
Central Baptist Church.
Many have stayed, confused, m
shock, and not really knowing wuhch
way to turn. Others have moved on, in
hopes of finding something closer to
what used to be their home.
I'm going to head west," said
Donnie Miller from Pascagoula,
SMississippi. "I know I may find noth-
ing left when I get there, but I just want
to get as close to my home, my roots. I
need that right now."
The list of businesses that have
made daily visits to the shelter to
check on the refugees' needs is long.
Publix Supermarket is delivering
dozens of fresh pastries every morn-
ing. Jill Cadenhead from Vanguard
Bank comes by each day with a bag of
something. Civic groups have made
contributions to the center. The
Crestview Rotarians voted unani-
mously it their lunch Wednesday to
give $500.00 to the ROC for expenses.
"To be honest with you, God has
really had his hand on this place," said
Mary Jo Woodruff, facility manager for

OWC offering free tuition to Katrina evacuees


Special to the News Bulletin
With thousands of people now
homeless from Hurricane Katrina
funneling into Florida, Okaloosa-
Walton College officials said Tuesday
they will provide free tuition and
other assistance for evacuees from the
storm-ravaged coast of Louisiana and
Mississippi.
"The first case for educational ser-

vice actually came from families mov-

Richburg, OWC President, in
announcing the steps the college is
taking to aid the evacuees filling shel-
ters and homes in the two counties.

Richburg said there is a provision
in Florida statutes that permits com-
munity colleges to offer free tuition
and fee exemptions for the now
homeless individuals from the hurri-
cane-hit areas. "These are extraordi-

Refugees from Hurricane Katrina
are realizing that they're going to be in
Okaloosa County for awhile.
As of Friday Okaloosa schools have
enrolled more than 161 students dis-

Schools, emergency personnel prepare for fuel crisis


Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter
Once again area residents
are finding those annoying yel-
low plastic bags over the fuel
pumps at local gasoline retail-
ers.
Friday, following a confer-
ence call with Florida Governor
Jeb Bush, the Okaloosa County
Board of Commissioners is ask-
ing area residents to conserve
fuels by at least 10 percent.
"Right now we're doing
pretty good, we have several
weeks' supply for our emer-
gency vehicles," said Okaloosa
County Emergency Operations
Director, Randy McDaniel.
"In a worst case scenario,
last but not least we would go
into a priority conservation
mode where we would cut
back, or if the need arises shut
down nonemergency vehicle
operation. Ambulances have
the highest priority so we're
going to keep them on the
road," McDaniels said.
Chief Joe Traylor with the
Crestview Fire Department said
that he has already been work-
ing on a fuel contingency plan.
"It is a weird time out there
right now," said Traylor. "We
have seen a lot of things devel-
op over the past few days that
no one anticipated would hap-
pen. It would appear that some
emergency situations have not
been thought through. If we get


in a situation where our local
fuel supply is not available, we
would go through the county's
emergency management direc-
tor and request fuel vouchers
through the state EOC.
Hopefully it won't get that
bad."
McDaniels said that he
crunched the numbers and
double checked the local statis-
tics and that Okaloosa County
has plenty of fuel.
"This is a self induced short-
age," said McDaniels. "We did
al the fuel counts yesterday and
Okaloosa County has plenty of
fuel."
McDaniels went on to say
that there isn't any less fuel in
Okaloosa County than normal-
ly. He suggests that it's not at
the gas stations, but stock piled
at peoples homes.
"People are just really stock-
ing up on fuel right now. They
have just topped off and topped
off to the extent that have
drained the retail station's
tanks."
According to a press release
from Okaloosa County
Manager Jim Curry, there is a
barge on its way to the Citgo
terminal in Niceville that
should arrive on Monday.
"That barge is carrying
2,000,000 gallons," McDaniels
said.
The Okaloosa County School
buses travel over 16,000 miles


every day and burn nearly
2,600 gallons of diesel fuel.
Okaloosa School district's
chief executive officer for edu-
cational support, Tommy
Kranz, said that he is not taking
any chances and is planning
ahead in case there is a fuel
shortage.
"We believe that we will be
able to secure the fuel to keep
the buses running," said Kranz.
"We are looking at ways in
which to conserve gasoline as
much as possible."
Kranz called a special meet-
ing of all his cafeteria managers
Friday morning to discuss ways
that food services can help save
on delivery cost.
"Food service has come up
with an aggressive plan,"
explained Kranz. "If we can
deliver two days' meals in one
trip we feel that would help
immensely in our delivery
cost."
At this time the school dis-
trict has no plans to alter any of
the bus routes.
"We do a bus route audit
every summer to look at ways
in which we can provide the
same service and at the same
time conserve energy," said
assistant superintendent Wayne
Ansley. "We have been doing
these audits for years. At this
time we have no plans to
change anything in our student
transportation strategies."


LAWLESS, from page 1 Jameson Inn offers concessions to Katrina victims


families are scattered and neigh-
borhoods are shattered."
Lawless, located in the heart
of Orleans Parish, sits in the
Ninth Ward near the first break
in the levee system following
Katrina's arrival. The school is
just blocks from the Inner
Harbor Navigation Canal that
connects Lake Pontchartrain
with the Mississippi River.
Fort Walton Beach principal
Alexis Tibbetts received a call
from Lawless principal Jackie
Mahatha on Tuesday.
"At that point she was hotel
hopping, trying to find a place
to stay," Tibbetts told The News
Bulletin Thursday afternoon.
"(Mahatha) said she had seen
clips from the news and told me
that their school was flooded up
to the second floor. She knew
they had lost everything on the
first floor of the school.
"She said on another clip, she
saw two of her parents (of stu-
dents) on a rooftop being res-
cued, then saw what she
thought was one of her students
down in the water."
Crestview principal Andy
Johnson said he had not yet
heard from any officials from
Lawless High School.
"With the communication
lines there such as they are, I
don't know when we can expect
to even make contact with the
folks at Lawless," Johnson said.
"From what I understand, their
school is right in the midst of the
flood, so the top priority for
them and for us is the safety of
all the students that are over
there."
Johnson said the fact that
Crestview was to host the New
Orleans team on the football
field next week, does bring the
tragedy of Katrina a little more
to our front door.
"It makes it a little bit more
personal, it does," Johnson said.


"It really touches the school in a
personal kind of way. It makes
you think more about students
and the people that live there,
and their families.
"We had a lot of tragedies
here last year, but nothing to the
magnitude of what the folks
over there are experiencing.
We've gone through tragedy
here, but I can only imagine
what those folks are going
through. The jobs and the liveli-
hoods of many of those people
have gone away."
Despite rumors of what the
Crestview football team might
do next Friday to replace
Lawless with another opponent,
Brunson said there will be no
game.
He and his staff plan to use
the opportuni t; .c'pit--Pace-
for the toUol-ng'wek-.
"We'll be ,al itigir,' Bftinson
said. "We have a 10-game sched-
ule and now we will have an
extra open week.
"Obviously, we would rather
be playing, but with the circum-
stances it's out of our hands."
Crestview actually played
Lawless one other time, a 56-0
victory in 2002, and had built
somewhat of a rapport with the
school's coaches and adminis-
trators.
Brunson recalls the difficul-
ties that schools in Santa Rosa
and Escambia counties had to
go through last year after
Hurricane Ivan, but knows
things are even tougher to deal
with right now on the west side.
"We thought we had prob-
lems last year, and we did have
some damage, but nothing like
what those people are experi-
encing," he said. "Those guys
are decimated over there.
"The devastation of this
storm, around New Orleans and
around the Biloxi area, is the
worst I've seen in my lifetime."

"Many of our hotels are full of

"We've never tolerated price

ERA Realty of Crestview and dozens of other businesses and individuals have donated air mattresses to weary refugees.

HELP, from page 1


the ROC.
Woodruff and the ROC's
associate pastor, Derrick Boring,
have been spending 12 to 14
hours a day at the shelter, coor-
dinating the relief efforts.
"The phone has been ring-
ing off the hook since Monday
morning," said Boring. "There
has just been an enormous out-
pouring of support, not just
from the Crestview area, but
also from Walton and Santa
Rosa Counties. People are just
calling in asking, 'What can I do
to help?'"
Air mattresses and cots
cover the floor, leaving just
enough room for a narrow walk-
way around the huge room.
"I don't think we have any-
one sleeping on the floor any-
more," Woodruff said.
"Commissioner Sheri Campbell
brought three air mattresses in
the other day, ERA Realty has
brought dozens and so have
many others."
Baptist, Methodist, AME,


Catholic, just about every
church in North Okaloosa'
County is stepping outside their
denominational boundaries and
working together in the efforts
to help the refugees at the ROC.
"Hi I'm .Mary Jones with
Macedonia Baptist Church on
Martin Luther King Boulevard,"
a smiling face woman said as
she walked up to Boring.
"Pastor Baggett from the
Macedonia Baptist Church on
Martin Luther King Boulevard
has sent me over here to let you
know that we are to pick up
dirty laundry, wash it, dry, and
bring it back."
Boring extended out his
arms and wrapped them around
Mrs. Jones and said "God bless
you, I know these folks will sure
appreciate that."
For many the shock of
knowing that they most likely
they have nothing to go home to
has begun to recede.
"I've pretty much calmed
down now," said Jerry Brown, a


resident from Slidell, Louisiana,
as he spoon-fed breakfast to his
12-month-old daughter. "For the
past four days I have been a ner-
vous wreck. My blood pres-
sure's sky high."
Brown, who has been at he
ROC since Monday, said he
knew that his home was gone.
He has come to the realization
as many here have, that he may
not be going home for months.
Brown said that he pleaded
with other family members and
relatives to join him during the
evacuation, but many decided
to stay. "The hardest thing is
just not knowing who in your
family survived."
On Tuesday Cox
Communications installed cable
for television and Internet.
Dozens of the refugees gathered
around the 42-inch TV, donated
by Aaron's Rental Company in
Fort Walton Beach, to get their
first glimpse of what the news
was back home. Many were
stunned when they saw the


video.
"I've seen enough," said
Brown, "I don't want to see no
more TV. All I'm focusing on
now is what I need to do to start
over."
The church brought two of
the computers from their office
to the shelter so people could
search for their relatives and
loved ones. One by one hus-
bands, mothers, children
entered names into the database
at the website that the Red Cross
has established.
"I'm hoping to find my
mother, said one teenage girl
who obviously had lots of expe-
rience sitting at a computer. For
others less computer savvy, fel-
low refugees could be seen lean-
ing over their shoulder giving
them a hand.
"This is not going to be a short
term effort," continued Boring.
"We're planning on possibly an
additional 400 people between
the three facilities here at our
church by tomorrow night."

City works the budget for 2006


Cal Zethmayr
News Bulletin Correspondent
The Crestview City Council
held its second budget work-
shop Tuesday afternoon and
had a detailed look at the pro-
jected revenues and expenses
for fiscal year 2006. ,'
Because of increased proper-
ty values in the city the current
tax rate of 6.999 mills is project-
ed to produce $4,541)588 for the
Crestview General Fund. This is
$488,740 or 24 percent more than
the $3,652,818 in fiscal year 2005.
Overall the General Fund
revenues for 2006 are projected
to be $10,288,539, an increase of
$1,475,126 or 17 percent more
than in 2005. The growth of
Crestview is very apparent
based on the 92 percent increase
in revenue from Building
Permits ($130,000 in 2005 and
$250,000 for 2006), and a 106
percent increase to the General
Fund from State Shared
Revenue-Sales Tax. :
The proposed budget indi-
cates an increase of $669,915 in
revenue from the sales tax. The
city received $630,295 in 2005
and is projected to go $1,300,210
for 2006. This increase to the
General Fund appears to be so
large this year because last year
$629,034 went td!o the Debt
Service Fund to retire bonds,
and this year only $197,873 will
be used for debt service.
Finance Director Patti Mann
presented the budget draft to
the city council and explained
where some of the extra rev-
enues will be spent.

get will increase by 23 percent or
$53,999 more in 2006 than the
$237,551 spent for 2005.
The two largest items in the
General Fund budget are Police
and Fire. Each is projected to
have a 14 percent increase in
their 2006 budget.
The Police Department allo-
cation for 2005 was $2,657,164,
which could increase by
$378,208 to a total of $3,035,372
for 2006. The Fire Department's
2005 budgeted amount was
$1,890,983 and is proposed to
increase by $263,365 for 2006 to
$2,154,348.
Salary increases and the asso-
ciated benefits account for much
of the projected budget growth.
Mann told the City Council that
the city is not paying wages
competitive with the area in
many departments. Police Chief
Travis Gillihan told the council
members, "We currently have
the lowest starting salary for
police officers in this area, and
this increase should help us
keep the new employees we
get."
Councilman Chip Wells said
"The only way that we're going
to be able to carry out what
needs to be done in this city is to
have the best possible people in
the positions to carry it out, and


the only way we're going to be
able to keep those people is to
take care of them. And pay is
one of the ways we're going to
take care of them. There's
numerous other ways, but pay is
the biggest. That's what they
take home every week. I think
this is another step in the right
direction. We're not running but
at least we're starting to walk."
Council President Ellis
Conner said, "The taxpayers of
the city of Crestview are taking a
significant wallop or increase
this year, and next year it'll be
even larger than that. The
department heads agree that
we've got the salaries up within
proportion, reasonable to others.
I'm willing to go along with this
budget this year, but next year I
would like for my fellow council
members and all those that are
present in this room. My empha-
sis next year is going, to be at
least a half mill reduction in our
Ad Valorem taxes, which this
year would have been a
$350,000 decrease in tax coming
in," Conner said, "I think it's
time that we're taking care of
our employees, that we also take
care of our taxpayers in the city
of Crestview and work towards
getting our millage rate that's
fair and equitable."
Crestview's millage rate of
6.999 is currently the lughest in
Okaloosa County.
Mayor George Whitehurst
said he also supports a reduc-
tion in the tax rate for the City of
Crestview.
"I'd like to reiterate what you
just said. I thought about the
same thing this year after I saw


what our tax would come in as.
I think it's time for us to look to
doing something to the millage
beginning maybe next .year,"
Whitehurst said.
The Crestview City Council
will hold their first public hear-
ing on the budget at Sept. 8
meeting in Council Chambers.
There were only two citizens,
one newsperson, the Council
members and Mayor, the City
Clerk, and Department Heads at
the Tuesday afternoon budget
workshop.
The General Fund is a major
part of the city budget but it is
the only area where the council
can control the amount of rev-
enue from city property taxes.
Other areas of the city budget
reviewed in the draft given to
the Council members are Debt
Service, Water Construction
Fund, Capital Projects, The
Utility Fund (water and sewer),
Public Works Administration
and Sanitation (garbage and
landfill). The majority of funds
for these parts of the city budget
are from fees for the various ser-
vices. This portion of the city
budget was $9,463,602 for 2005
and the 2006 proposal is
$13,411,270, an increase of
$3,947,668 (42 percent). Some of
the funds for water and sewer
and capital improvement pro-
jects have been carried forward
for more than one year. The
total 2006 budget for the City of
Crestview as presented in the
draft at their workshop meeting
comes in at a little over 25 mil-
lion dollars and reflects a 28 per-
cent increase over the 2005 bud-
get.

Most Christian denominations
believe that infants and young chil-
dren are "safe," in the matter of sal-
vation, until they reach an "age of
accountability," which is not arbi-
trary, but based upon an older
child's ability to understand the
terms of salvation. With this in
mind, I have prayed for my chil-
dren, and now my grandchildren,
that they would not know a full day
of conviction. What I mean by that
is, on the very first day, that it is

The hard thing for adults is the
faith part-to simply believe John
3:16: "For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlast-
ing life." I quoted that verse as a
child and believed it. It was easy to
believe. It was easy to believe even
in untrue things as a child. Children
believe almost anything they are
told. The hard part for a child is the
repentance part. They don't know'
about the depth of sin's stain on our
souls or its being the cause of our
estrangement from God. It takes
them a while to get a grip on that,
even if they have been raised in
church.


So, Jesus says to adults, "You
need to be like children in this mat-
ter of belief. You understand the
problem; now accept the solution.
It's really simple: Heaven sweet, sin
black, judgment sure, Hell hot, and
.Jesus saves." And, He says to chil-
dren, "You know about me, and you
want to be identified with Me; now
accept the fact that you need Me,
and you don't really have Me until
you have saving faith and are born
again." The Lord Jesus Christ wants
adults and children alike to be
saved. Are you?

Special Olympians get their joy



from knocking down bowling pins


Dallas B. Nicholson
News Bulletin Reporter

'It's not always about strikes,
spares and 7-10 splits. For
some, it's just a joy of having
the ability to participate.
Every Wednesday, at the
Shoal River Bowling Center in
Crestview, approximately 23
adults train for the Special
Olympic games. Joining these
training sessions are students
from Walker Elementary
School, coaches, parents, and
volunteers.
The Special Olympic county
games will be held Sept. 2 at 9
a.m. and coaches and athletes
are gearing up for competition.
Special Olympics currently
serves more than 1.7 million
individuals with intellectual
disabilities in more than 200


programs.
Team sporting events are
held throughout the year in
preparation for County,
District, and State Games.
North Okaloosa County
Special Olympians participate
in bowling and track and field
events. Bocce will be added
later this year.
"We always need volun-
teers, we always need sup-
port," said Barbara Lundy, who
has been a Coach since 1977.
"Graham B.outwell is our
county coordinator, and he is
the principal at Silver Sands
School. Any donations sent
through Silver Sands School to
him will stay directly in our
county," said Lundy.
In addition to adults with
intellectual disabilities, the
Special Olympics in Okaloosa


County also benefits intellectu-
ally disabled children.
Approximately 10 children
from Walker Elementary are
bussed every Wednesday to
train with the adults.
"They look forward to it.
They'll also do Track and Field
starting in January," said Carl
Griffith, a teacher from Walker.
Griffith has been involved with
the Special Olympics for over
30 years. He Molunteers his
time every week to work with
the children.
"We really appreciate Jim
and Joyce White, because with-
out them we wouldn't be able
to do this. They are very sup-
portive of us," Griffith said.
The Whites own the Shoal
River Bowling Center and offer
reduced rates for the athletes.
The County Games will be in


Crestview at the Shoal River
Bowling Center and the Whites
also throw the Special
Olympians a pizza party.
"I'd like to see more partici-
pation in our community,
they're just fun-loving people,
they see no prejudice in any-
body," Lundy said.
The philosophy of Special
Olympics is founded upon the
belief that people with intellec-
tual disabilities can benefit
socially, physically, mentally
and spiritually. It is the hope
that through these sporting
events the community can
understand, accept and respect
intellectually disabled individ-
uals.

Alzheimer's second victims, family caregivers, often need help to cope


Submitted Article

They are the forgotten victims
of Alzheimer's disease and other
memory disorder illnesses: the
family caregivers who toil each
day caring for loved ones who
are no longer able to care for
themselves. For them, stress is a
constant. It can even be a killer,
according to studies that have
shown a link between caregiving
and premature death, particular-
ly for *pcs-s.
When these caregivers even-
:ually bum out, emotionally or
physically, the lives of those they
are caring for often follow suit.
While most outreach efforts tar-
get the sufferers of Alzheimer's
and dementia, a local compa-
ny-Home Instead Senior
Care-and a national non-profit
advocacy group are teaming up
to help their forgotten care-
givers.
The unique collaboration
between Home Instead Senior
Care and the Leeza Gibbons
Memory Foundation has led to
the creation of www.caregiver-
stress.com and an online stress
tool that can help family care-
givers gauge their level of stress


and get help from a variety of
resources, many of which are
listed on the site.
"The caregivers are a huge
component in the lives of
Alzheimer's and dementia
patients," says James Huysman,
Psy.D., executive director and
co-founder of The Leeza
Gibbons Memory Foundation.
"If the caregiver, for instance,
starts drinking or medicating to
cope, or becomes ill or
depressed, the whole system
breaks down and everyone
involved suffers. That's why we
are gearing our efforts at The
Leeza Gibbons Memory
Foundation toward behavioral
research so we can answer the
question: If you educate,
empower and energize a care-
giver, how much does that
enhance or enrich the quality of
life for their loved one?"
That question, as well as oth-
ers, will have far-reaching effects
on an increasing number of fam-
ilies of memory disorder victims.
Nearly 64 percent of Home
Instead Senior Care's clients
nationwide already suffer from
some form of memory or
dementia problems. Studies


have revealed that stress is a
problem that can affect the
health as well as the mortality of
their family caregivers if assis-
tance is not provided. For exam-
ple:
In a poll'released earlier
this year of more than 5,300 of
Home Instead Senior Care's
professional CAREGivers who
deal with family members who
care for a loved one each day, the
company's CAREGivers report
that 35 percent of these family
members had significant to
above average stress levels at
the point they sought assistance.
A 2003 New England
Journal of Medicine report co-
authored by Richard Schulz,
Ph.D., one of the nation's leading
researchers on caregiver stress,
found that
caregivers exhibited high lev-
els of depressive symptoms
while providing care to family
members with dementia, even
though they showed remarkable
resilience after the death of the
person for whom they were car-
ing.
An earlier study (Journal of
the American Medical
Association, Dec. 19, 1999) also


co-authored by Dr. Schulz, wh
is director of gerontology at th
University of Pittsburg]
revealed that family caregive:
caring for an ailing spouse we
63 percent more likely to d
sooner than those who were no
caregivers.
"Every day we see the ro
stress plays in the lives of family
caregivers who are trying to d
too much with too fe
resources," says Todd Harrel
owner of the Home Instea
Senior Care office serving
Okaloosa and Walton Counties
"That's why Home Instea
Senior Care is partnering wil
The Leeza Gibbons Memor
Foundation, not only to hel
those with memory disorder

Gibbons' partnership with
Home Instead Senior Care, the
world's largest provider of at-
home non-medical care for older
adults, includes an educational
campaign that features the new,
informational online stress
assessment tool available to fam-
ily caregivers at www.caregiver-
stress.com.
According to Dr. Schulz, who
was instrumental in developing
the stress assessment tool, care-
givers who don't take care of
themselves can't care for others.
"This means eating right, getting
adequate rest, building exercise
into your schedule, keeping up


with your own medical appoint-
ments and, reaching out when
you need help."
Signs of caregiver stress can
be both physical and emotional
and include disturbed sleep,
headaches, weight fluctuation,
fatigue, anxiety and mood
swings. To gauge their level of
stress, family caregivers should
log on to
www.caregiverstress.com to
complete the 20-question survey.
Developed by the Home Instead
Senior Care advisory board a
group of leading eldercare and
caregiver stress experts the
online stress assessment tool also
can help determine what sup-
port caregivers may need for
themselves, including advice,
tips and resources. To take the

Garden variations of North Okaloosa county


Shari Farrell
Okaloosa County
Master Gardener
Special to the Bulletin

at the Okaloosa County Extension office. (photo by Shari Farrell)


Defining a garden in terms of
the dictionary is the very general
statement of "improvement and
change to suit" one's taste. To nar-
row that into an exact definition is
more difficult as there are as many
variations as there are gardens and
gardeners. The object of this series
of articles will be to acquaint the
reader with as many of those varia-
tions in North Okaloosa County as
possible.
Surrounding the University of
Florida Okaloosa County Extension
building is a landscape of many dif-
ferent gardens. Its purpose is to pro-
vide educational information as a
public garden open to everyone.
Formally referred to as an
Educational Landscape, it has been
planted and is maintained by the
Master Gardeners of Okaloosa


County.
Originally conceived in 1996 by
Okaloosa Horticulture Agent Larry
Williams and Master Gardener
Allan Van Bergen to enhance the
grounds and planted in 2000, it con-
tinues to evolve, as does every pri-
vate landscape. Many of the indi-
vidual gardens change with new
research, new plants introduced,
and new Master Gardeners taking
charge.
As each area of any landscape is
planted for a specific purpose, so
are these gardens. The fruit orchard
contains muscadine grape arbors,
peach and persimmon trees. Eight
demonstration beds offer the viewer
bog gardens, roses, experimental
lawn grass, various salvias, a tiered
vegetable garden and two beds of
herbs both edible and medicinal.
Nearby are non-edible perennial
peanuts used as a ground cover and
several flowering vines.
Throughout the landscape are palms
and trees hardy to the area and ever-
green shrubs, both broad leaf and


needle. Several different varieties of
ornamental and lawn grasses are
used to evaluate their specific use to
the home gardener. Beds and con-
tainer plantings of annual flowers
line the approach to the entry and
are changed with the seasons.
This is a Public Educational
Landscape open to everyone and an
experience not to be missed by any
gardener. You are invited to walk
the grounds at any time or arrange
for an Okaloosa County Master
Gardener to accompany your visit.
How many times have we
slowed to a crawl to admire a par-
ticular private garden or eye-catch-
ing shrub in full bloom and wished
to know more about it? Private gar-
dens are as varied as the gardeners
who tend them-ours to admire
from a distance, but unless you
know the gardener it's unlikely
you'll get much closer than the
sidewalk. This is where you the
reader can help. Find those interest-
ing unusual, eye catching gardens
north of the Shoal River, and we'll


go investigate for this series. We
aren't limited to flowers and shrubs.
Container gardens, vegetable plots,
water gardens ... anything you find
of interest. We can also work into
these articles questions you may
have about gardening. Please phone
the County Extension office at 689-
5850 and leave a message for me.
If you'd like your own garden
showcased, we can do that too! In
fact we'd love to come for a visit.
Contact me at mgardnr@cox.net or
through the Crestview News
Bulletin and help us meet the gar-
dens and gardeners of north
Okaloosa.


Shari Farrell has been an active
certified Okaloosa Master
Gardener since 1998 and is a
member of the Crestview
Garden Club. She lives and
gardens in Crestview and can
be contacted at
mgardnr@cox.net.


Apostle Build to begin in Okaloosa County


Okaloosa County Habitat
for Humanity is receiving
strong support from several
local churches to fund another
Habitat home. Through an out-
reach to area churches request-
ing them to come together and
build in the name of God, their
contributions have been gath-
ered under a project titled the
Apostle Build.
The basis of the Apostle
Build was to have 12 congrega-
tions contribute within the
community to help eliminate
substandard housing. With this


basic concept,
Habitat's con-
centration is pri-
marily on meet-
ing the financial
goal and not on
the number of
churches involved. Forty-six
percent of the funding has
been contributed by these car-
ing churches and Christian
organizations: Thrivent
Financial Investments,
Shalimar United Methodist
Church, St. Simon's on the
Sound Episcopal Church,


B


SCo venant
Community,
Destin United
Methodist
Church, and First
Presbyterian
Church.
The door is still open for
other churches to get involved
and help build a home for a
mother and her children in
Fort Walton Beach. If your
church can not support the
build financially, lunch
providers are needed to feed
the 20-25 crew members on


Saturday once the project is
under way.
To begin this blessing,
Okaloosa County Habitat for
Humanity is inviting the com-
munity to attend the ground
breaking ceremony on Friday,
September 9, 2005 at 2:00 p.m.
located on Elaine Avenue in
Fort Walton Beach. (Directions;
Love Joy Road, turn right onto
Marler Street, turn left on
Elaine 'Avenue.) For more

Sacred Heart celebrates 90th anniversary


Sacred Heart Health System cel-
ebrated 90 years of service to
Northwest Florida on Sept. 1.
Hospital employees at Sacred Heart
Hospital in Pensacola and on the
Emerald Coast held brief obser-
vances to celebrate the anniversary.
Since 1915, Sacred Heart's mis-
sion of care has been .a source of
comfort, healing, and hope for gen-
erations of families in our region.
Its original purpose to reach out to
the poor and vulnerable of our com-
munity remains the driving force
behind its mission today.
"Sacred Heart's success and rep-
utation today are a reflection of our
religious founders' dedication to
our mission and our excellent team
of associates, physicians and volun-
teers who carry on our rich tradition
of care to all," said Patrick Madden,
president and CEO of SHHS. "For
us, it's been 90 years of sacred serv-
ice to generations of families."
Sacred Heart was born from a
collaborative partnership among the
Pensacola business community,
local physicians and citizens, reli-


gious leaders and the Daughters of
Charity in Emmitsburg, Maryland.
The original hospital opened in
1915 on 12th Avenue as the
"Pensacola Hospital." The name
was changed in 1948 to reflect the
hospital's connection to the
Daughters of Charity and their
devotion to the Sacred Heart of
Jesus, which represented compas-
sion, devotion and love for all of
humanity. In 1965, thanks to the
Daughters' remarkable vision,
Sacred Heart relocated to an unde-
veloped area on Ninth Avenue that
was destined to become a major hub
of Pensacola. Another milestone in
care was the opening of Sacred
Heart Children's Hospital in 1969.
Sacred Heart has seen phenome-
nal growth over the past 10 years to
become a truly regional health sys-
tem. The system now reaches from
Panama City Beach to Mobile, Ala.,
providing access to medical care for
families across a span of 25,000
square miles. Growth also has
included a:
New Children's and Women's


Hospital in 1996
New Regional Heart & Vascular
Institute in 2000
New Emergency/Trauma Center
in 2000
New air ambulance service in
2001
Miracle Camp for cancer patients
in 2002
New hospital in Walton County
in 2003
Regional Stroke Center in 2005
New Medical Park at Airport
Boulevard 2005
New Institute for Surgical Weight
Loss in 2005
Today, SHHS continues to
attract new physicians and launch
new services to meet the needs of
families throughout this growing
region. All of this continues to give
life to the founders' spirit of care
and compassion for all who sought
.their help during the last century
and for those who will need Sacred
Heart again in the coming decades.

Sacred Heart's history and services,

SDavidson scores

winning points

With 2:03 to go

Kyle Wright
Bulletin Sports Editor

Davidson's football team got
its wakeup call Thursday night
against Pryor.
The Panthers answered the
bell just in time. A.J. Johnson's
seven-yard touchdown run and
ensuing two-point conversion
with 2:03 remaining allowed
Davidson to escape Crestview
High School with an 8-6 victo-
5ry.
"You hung in and you won.
Be proud of that," Panthers
coach Dexter Day told his team
afterward. "But we've got to
work on some things."
Three lost fumbles and sever-
al untimely penalties nearly
sent Davidson (2-0) to its first
loss since 2003.
"I'm disappointed, because
that was not Davidson football,"
Day said. "Davidson football is
about being ready."
The Panthers drove into
Pryor territory on five of its first
six possessions, but the penalties
and fumbles kept Davidson out
of the end zone.
"Mentally, we were not
ready to play," Day said. "When
you're not ready to play mental-
ly, you're not going to do well."
The Pirates also got some for-
tuitous bounces.
Three Pryor long snaps
bounced on the ground -
directly to the Pirate punter.
A jump ball on a long pass
fell into a Pryor receiver's arms
for a 47-yard gain.
Pryor took the lead on the
first play of the final quarter.
The Pirates scored on a well-
designed 16-yard pass play that
completed a 43-yard drive.
Davidson's offense returned
to the field with a renewed sense
of urgency. The Panthers drove
44 yards in five plays to the
Pryor 13, but lost a fumble for
the third time.

Middle school football



ers rally past Pirates


Ken Nielsen/The News Bulletin
Davidson defenders Joseph Sporer (71) and Jacob Huckabee (20) wrap up a Lewis ballcarrier
Thursday night.


Davidson's situation grew
more dire a few moments later.
The Panthers gave the
Pirates an extra possession with
a roughing the kicker penalty.
Davidson's defense again
stopped Pryor on three plays.
Day called for an all-out rush on
the punter as time ticked away.
This time, three Panthers
crashed through the line and
smothered the Pirate punt.
Davidson took possession on
the Pryor 14. Three Johnson car-
ries later, the Panthers had an 8-
6 lead.
The Pirates went nowhere on
their last-ditch possession,
allowing Davidson to celebrate
another win.
"I'm glad we won," Day said.
"But I was disappointed in the
game."


The Davidson program got
a pair of real-life wakeup calls
long before Thursday.
All of the Panther players
spent the week seeing televi-
sion photos depicting the dev-
astation in the wake of
Hurricane Katrina.
"We're lucky to be playing
a football game tonight," Day
told his players.
Day coached Thursday's
game with a heavy heart.
One of his former players,
Crestview High School sopho-
more Tim Ceccorulli, passed
away Monday.
"A great kid," Day said. "A
great family and a great smile.
We're going to miss him."

boree at Niceville on Aug.

Vernon 55, Baker 0


Gators caught in


Former Baker

mentor triumphs

in homecoming

Steve Andrews
Managing Editor

BAKER Jeff Webb felt the
nostalgia of the 1990s on Friday
night.
He was back coaching a
game inside Doug Griffith
Memorial Stadium and his team
was on its way to victory.
Webb was feeling much the
same way he felt during his 12
years at the helm of the Baker
Gators' football program.
The only difference was, this
time he was on the Vernon
Yellow Jackets' sideline.
Webb's seasoned Yellow
Jacket squad showed speed,
power and an acute balance of
running and passing the ball
as they defeated the Gators 55-
0.
"We knew we were in for a
tough one, just with the ath-
letes they have," first-year
Baker Coach Bob Kellogg said.
"Earlier in the game we were
playing a little bit better
defense, but then they just got
to us."
Vernon scored touchdowns
on four of its first five drives,
rolling out to a 28-0 lead mid-
way through the second quar-
ter.
"(Baker) has got a long year
ahead of them and I hate to see
it," Webb said, just minutes
after offering words of encour-
agement to Kellogg at mid-
field.
"Their kids played hard, they
were gritty and would hit you.
We were in danger of making it
a ball game there in the first
half."
Vernon outgained the young,
inexperienced Gators 429-78 in
total offense and held Baker to
just one first down.
"It's tough right now, but our
kids have good attitudes they
keep working and keep bat-
tling," Kellogg said.
"I thought Laine (Barnhill)
threw the ball very well, but
we've either got to give him pro-
tection or get some more speed
at receiver."
Baker's junior quarterback'
completed just 1 of 6 passes, but
the lone completion went for 45
yards to Matt Cawthon, and
accounted for Baker's lone first
down.


"We can't give up big plays,
and we can't turn it over,"
Kellogg said. "But I did feel our
kids played much better than
they did last week (a 57-7 loss to
Walton) although I know the
score is not an indicator of that."
The Gators return to action
next Friday night with another
home game against Holmes
County.
"Like I told the kids after the
game, if we get knocked down
we just have to. get back up,"
Kellogg said. "Eventually, our
day will come."
Webb, who led Baker to the
1993 state championship, said it
was good to come back and visit
his old stomping ground.
"It's nice to come back and
get a chance to walk around
town a little bit," he said. "This
is still a special place for me."

Dawgs escape Woodham with victory


CHS 2-0 after C : rest vlew 9,Woodhlaln


comeback win

Kyle Wright
Bulletin Sports Editor

PENSACOLA The third
time proved the charm for
Crestview kicker Nick Jewell.
Jewell knocked a 36-yard
field goal through the uprights
with 5:27 remaining for the deci-
sive points in the Bulldog foot-
ball team's 9-7 victory at
Woodham on Friday night.
Jewell had a pair of kicks
blocked earlier in the game, but
had no worries before the cru-
cial kick.
"I just said, 'If you block
them, I'll kick it,'" Jewell said.
"They had good a good rush,
but the third time, we finally got
them blocked."
The victory gives Crestview a
2-0 record entering a two-week
break.
The Bulldogs were scheduled
to host Lawless (La.) next Friday,
but the game was cancelled
because of damage to the New
Orleans school in the wake of
Hurricane Katrina.
"A win was exactly what we
needed," Crestview coach Matt
Brunson said. "Now we can get


sore momentumm going in to
that next %week."
Crestview's defense allowed
the Bulldogs to improve to 2-0
for the first time since 2002..
The Bulldogs' defensive line
constantly harassed Titan QB
Kordel Alexander, keeping
Woodhami-s new spread offense
in check.
The 'Titans: racked up yards
And completions, but just seven
points;
"We just tried to keep the
pressure on him," lineman
Marquis Matthews said. "Tried
not to let him get the ball away."
Woodham reached the red
zone on its first two drives of the
second half, but the CHS defense
stiffened on both occasions.
The Bulldogs came up with a
fumble recovery on their own 10
on the Titans' first possession of
the third quarter.
Crestview handed the ball
right back with a fumble of its
own, but Tysean Thrash ended
the Woodham threat for good
with an interception of a would-
be TD.pass near the goal line.
"The defense played hard,"
Brunson said. "We put them in
bad situations several times, but
they answered the call several
times."


Matthews came up with the
e\ ening' most crushing hit. He
knocked Alexander out for the
last two minutes of the first half
with a sack from the blind side
that could be heard back in
Crestview.
"I was just thinking about
getting him down and getting
that sack," Matthews said. "One
minute, I was chasing the quar-
terback from the blind side. The
next thing I knew, I was cele-'
brating."
Woodham celebrated the
game's first points on Vincent
Hill's one-yard TD run with 5:44
left in the first quarter.
Alexander's spinning 36-yard
run to the Bulldog 1 on 4th-and-
1 set up the score.
Crestview answered with an
impressive eight-play, 80-yard
drive in the second quarter.
Reggie Speights' 34-yard carry
took the Bulldogs into Titan ter-
ritory. Calvin Siler scored the TD
from two yards out.
Josh Jones blocked Jewell's
extra-point attempt, preserving
a one-point lead for Woodham.
Jones also blocked Jewell's 49-
yard field goal attempt with
11:15 left in the fourth quarter.
Jewell ran onto the field for
hli ?3-y)rrder with 5:27 left,

knowing the Bulldogs might not
get another chance.
The Titans again got some
pressure from the outside, but
Jewell's strong left foot got the
ball safely through the
uprights.
"Then, I was biting my fin-
gernails," Jewell said. "I wanted
us to win, so if we had scored
again, I would have been happy.
But it is fun to have a game-win-
ning kick."
Crestview overcame several
other miscues besides the
blocked kicks. The Bulldogs lost
a pair of fumbles and committed
three personal fouls.
Woodham, however, got
whistled for the evening's most
costly violations.
A holding penalty wiped out
a Titan fourth-down conversion
in Bulldogs territory midway
through the fourth quarter.
Another holding penalty
brought back Alexander's
apparent 80-yard TD run imme-


diately after Jewell's go-ahead
field goal.
Woodham would reach the
Crestview 43 on its final drive,
but the Bulldog defense lose to
the occasion one last time
Randy McKee came up v.itlh a
pair of sacks to end the drive.
"Even though we were all
cramping up, we all kept think-
ing we had to stay strong,"
Matthews said. "It feels great to
be 2-0. I hope we keep it going."
