An Okaloosa and Walton county-
wide manhunt for two armed robbery
fugitives ended without incident

Parthenon sets

public forum

to discuss shift

with Medicare

The forum will be held
Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. and
will focus on upcoming
prescription drug changes.
Adam Ziglar
News Bulletin Reporter
Parthenon Healthcare of Crestview
will offer a public forum on Tuesday at
5;30,.p.mLnupcoming Medicare pre-
scription drug changes.
The meeting is in conjunction with
the facility's open house and will be
held in the main dining room.
The public is encouraged to attend
the meeting.
The prescription drug changes will
affect people who are 65 years or older
and who are currently on Medicaid.
A new prescription drug benefit
called Medicare Part D will begin Jan.
1, 2006, simultaneously ending the era
of Medicaid, a prescription .drug plan
that was signed into law on July 30,
1965 by President Lyndon B. Johnson.
Michele Richard, a pharmacist with
Moulton Pharmacy, will be the guest
speaker for the event.
She says that many seniors are con-
fused about the upcoming changes.
"A lot of the information that is out
there is on the Internet," she says. "I
don't know many senior citizens who
are logging on to research about pre-
scription drug coverage."
Richard explained that the changes
will only affect people who currently
have no prescription drug coverage.
The sign-up period to enroll for
Medicare Part D began Nov. 15 and
continues through May 15, 2006.
Richard said that the people who
should be most concerned are those
who have Medicaid and Medicare, or
those who have no prescription drug
coverage.
"If you're enrolled in Medicaid, you
will be automatically dropped on
January first," she explained. "You will
be automatically enrolled into a plan. It
may not be the best plan for you, but
you will have some type of coverage."
Here are some important details
that you may need to know:

Sheriff's Department Thursday around
4 p.m.
It all happened unexpectedly in the
parking lot of the Tom Thumb on U.S.
Highway 331 South and Live Oak
Street in DeFuniak Springs.
"We had been looking for them for
the past couple of days and had the
description of a couple of vehicles that
they may be using," said Capt. Danny
Glidewell with the Walton County
Sheriff's Office.
"One of our deputies spotted one of
the suspect vehicles at the Tom Thumb,
called for backup and within minutes

we had them in custody."
Glidewell said that the men gave no
resistance and that none of the firearms
that the two men were thought to have
in their possession were on them at the
time.
Two females that were with the sus-


pects were also taken into custody.
Jacqueline Ann Sullivan, age 21, and
Jacqueline Suzanne Ennis were charged
with accessory after the fact for aiding
the two fugitives.
The arrest culminates a three month
long investigation by the Walton
County Sheriff's Office, the United
States Marshall Service, Okaloosa
County Sheriff's Office, and the
Crestview Police Department.
Gafford and Dillon were both want-
ed in connection to the Oct. 18 armed
robbery of a Crestview Tom Thumb
store and the Nov. 29 robbery of a
Crestview woman, as well as other
armed robberies in Okaloosa and
Walton Counties.

Katie Everett counts the days until her husband, Victor, *
returns home from the Iraqi warfront. This will be her
first, and hopefully only Christmas without him, if she
has anything to say about it.
On Dec. 2, the U.S. Marines took a major hit.
In all, 10 soldiers were killed from a blast caused by a
roadside bomb; 11 others were injured.
The troops were on nighttime foot patrol just outside
the city of Fallujah, Iraq, 40 miles west of Baghdad.
Fallujah was ,an Iraqi insurgent bastion until U.S.
troops overtook it in November of 2004.
Since then, the troops have been in harm's way, often
becoming the victims of an unpredictable guerrilla war
campaign that continues to strike at the heart of the


American presence in Iraq.
As the dust began to settle from the explosion, a triage
was set up and U.S. Navy Corpsmen began to line up the
injured troops, addressing each soldier according to the
seriousness of the trauma.
Victor Everett, the senior corpsman of the division, had
the daunting task of sorting through the rubble and bro-
ken bodies. Moving from one soldier to the next, Everett
and his crew mended the wounds they could, and passed
by the ones they couldn't.
Meanwhile, back in Crestview, Katie Everett, Victor's
wife, was with their two small girls, Sydney, 2, and
Elizabeth, 4.
She has since garnished their house in decorative holi-
day trimmings. The Christmas tree is dotted with hand-
made ornaments, flickering lights and a glaze of sparkling

Dillon also has charges pending
against him in Louisiana for violation
of parole for attempted second degree
murder, as well as local charges for
aggravated battery with a deadly
weapon in Walton County.
In addition to his Okaloosa County
armed robbery with a deadly weapon
warrant, Gafford is being charged in
Walton County for accessory after the
fact for his role in aiding Moses in his
efforts to avoid arrest.
According to the Walton County
Sheriff's office press release, the investi-
gation is still continuing and additional
arrests are expected.
All four suspects are being held in
the Walton County Jail.

Charged teen

has a history

of offenses

Cody Sears, 16, was
expelled from Davidson
Middle School in 2003 for
sexual misconduct.
Adam Ziglar
News Bulletin Reporter
A Laurel Hill teenager who was
recently arrested for armed burglary of
a conveyance and grand theft has a his-
tory of other
crimes.
Cody Sears,
16, was arrested '
on Nov. 29 for a
string of burglar-
ies that have -.
blanketed the
north end of the
county, stretching
into Covington
County, Ala., just SEARS
across the
Florida-Alabama border.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff's
Office arrested Sears and Kyle Schoop,
16, linking them to more than 30 bur-
glaries.
And the number continues to climb.
However, Sears' criminal past goes
back to 2003, when he was a student
Davidson Middle School. He was
removed from the school and relocated
to the Okaloosa Academy because he
sexually harassed five girls, according
to a sheriff's office report.
Sears was suspended on Nov. 14,
2003, for sexually harassing a female
student by sliding his hand down the
back of her pants, the report said.
A memo from James Holstead,
Davidson's administrator, also said
that four other girls had reported simi-
lar encounters the same day. Sears
groped and verbally harassed the girls
on numerous occasions throughout
that November.
Sears was removed from Davidson
and enrolled at the Okaloosa Academy
until the 2005 school year began, when
he transferred to Crestview High
School
In October, Sears continued harass-
ing one of the girls that had been at
Davidson two years earlier.
Based on two years of evidence and
testimonies from numerous witnesses
and victims, Cindi Otto, a resource offi-
cer at the high school, drafted a war-
rant for his arrest.

President


1980's a string of business deci-
sions leading to a corporate
castoff began a downward spi-
ral.
After a successive string of
failures, the company went into
bankruptcy, and for several
years, the sprawling complex sat
dormant. The huge hangars
remained empty, and the park-
ing lot was overgrown with
weeds. It looked as though there'
was little hope the facility would
ever be used again, until one
day a farsighted Ohio business
executive by the name of
Charles E. Shanklin paid it a
visit.
What Shanklin saw wasn't a
vacant parking lot or empty
hangars. Instead, he saw a thriv-
ing, world-class business.
Thus begins the modem
equivalent of an ancient Greek ,
story of the phoenix, the great
bird of beauty rising from the
ash of ruin. Crestview Aerospace
Corporation is the phoenix of
the business world.
The story does not begin here
in Crestview, however. It began
much earlier in Buffalo New
York, when Shanklin, a young,
recent high school graduate
decided the only way to get
ahead was to 'do something no
one else had done. "That is how
I began, and I am still that way,"
he said.
"I started off working for a
daily newspaper at 17 years of
age, and eventually worked my
way from copy boy to the news
room, and got enough money
scraped together to go to
Bowling Green College in Ohio,
where I graduated in three
years," Shanklin says proudly.
"Then I went to law school at
Ohio State, and excelled there. I
graduated in two years, and
then went into the practice of
law in Columbus for the next 35
years."

It was during this time he
would be introduced to a group
of remarkably bright engineers,
scientists and inventors who
worked at the famed Battelle
Memorial Institute in Columbus,
Ohio.
"They were some of the
brightest minds of the day, and
invented all sorts of commercial
products," Shanklin said, as he
took me on an extensive walking
tour of the Crestview Aerospace
Facility.
"One day they asked me to
help them start a new business
which was manufacturing and
marketing a new product called
a neutron dosimeter. It was a
device that would measure the
neutrons going through the
human body in a day's work at
a nuclear plant. I got the money
together and ran the business for
them. It was quite successful,"
Shanklin said.
"We went from one thing to
another, and we always tried to
do something that man hadn't .
done before. However, when
you get into the older industries,
it becomes harder to do some-
thing new. And,what we did
was introduce new technology
to older industries, and that was
very difficult. I suffered for 10
years trying to do just that in the
steel industry. I had bought an
abandoned steel plant in
Marion, Ohio with two other
gentlemen, and from the very
start we began doing things dif-
ferently. We ran it flat out, seven
days a week, and eventually
turned it into one of the lowest
cost.producers in the state,"
Shanklin said.
Another company owned by
him created and manufactured a
weather observation system
called ARTAIS Weather Check
for airports around the same
time. "The difference was this
system collected and disseminat-


ed weather data to meteorologi-
cal centers, airports and pilots
by voice radio, telephone or
satellite, and I ran the company
for twenty years along with my
son Charles, who is now presi-
dent of Crestview Aerospace
Corp., for 20 years."
Most of the modem aviation
automated weather systems
around the world use AWOS,
and the National Weather
Service uses automated surface
observing system (ASOS), both
of which are tied to ARTAIS.
"We eventually sold the business
to the company that made the
sensors," Shanklin said.
"I was then asked to invest in
an aerospace company called
Snow Aviation International, in
Columbus, Ohio. They had
heard about the bankrupt
Fairchild site here in Crestview,
and asked me to come down
and look the facility over as a
possible site for their C-130
retrofit program. They did not
have a plant large enough in
Columbus to accommodate the
C-130, so my son Charlie and I
flew down here.
"We looked at the existing
site, then the community and the
surrounding area. We quickly
decided we would buy the plant
for ourselves. We went back to
Columbus and we told Snow
what we intended to do and told
them they could use the
Crestview facility without
charge, which they did."
They launched the company
with a staff of 13 former
Fairchild employees. "It became
apparent after a few years we
couldn't compete as a prime
contractor because the military
didn't want to deal with us, a
small, unknown and untested.
company, when they had Boeing
and Lockheed or other large
contractors to choose from,"
Shanklin explained, so
Crestview Aerospace turned the
situation around. "Instead of
bidding on large contracts we
decided to become competitive
by being industry's best friend
and helper. That is the formula
we began using and have used
ever since."
Crestview Aerospace offered
its resources, manpower, equip-
ment and facility to prime con-
tractors, who supplied the bid-
ding, engineering, and contracts.


Shop floor manufacturing at Crestview Areospace.


"We even offered free office
space for the prime contractor in
our facility, and it worked.
Strangely enough that was a
new way to do business in the
aerospace industry, and we
ended up with everybody here.
"Having said that, there are
two parts to our business here in
Crestview. The one part is the
modification of military aircraft.
Secondly, we manufacture com-
mercial and military specifica-
tion parts, and major assemblies
for aircraft and helicopters,
which is part of what was done
here in the 1960's."
They updated the facility,
going from "cumbersome labor-
intensive processes" to comput-
er controlled manufacturing,
keeping costs down. Shanklin
stated, "One thing that we are
proud of is our low hourly rate
to industry. It is the lowest, or
among the lowest in the indus-
try and that keeps us competi-
tive.
"The real test comes when
you start doing the work, and I
am proud to say we have come
in ahead of schedule, under
budget and had the work done
to perfection in each and every
case. And the reason we can do
it is because we have a highly
skilled, motivated workforce,"
Shanklin stated. "Industry
knows it, and know they can
depend on us. That is important.
It one of the major components
to any successful business.
Crestview Aerospace has .
grown from those 13 employees
to 1,200 people, and counting.
"We do things here that most
other companies do not do, but


we think it is important for good:
relations with our workforce.
For instance, we have profit
sharing, which means everyone
gets a cut of the profits. We were'
the first to do it in the steel
industry and I am not sure if
anyone still does it, but we did it
and it paid off."
CAC offers additional ser-
vices to outside companies as
well. "For instance," said
Shanklin, "we manufacture the
cabin section for Boeing's
Chinook Helicopter. In addition,
we manufacture most of the.
metal parts for all of Bell
Helicopters including the V-22
Osprey.
"Recently, Bell has contracted
with us to manufacture the com-
plete fuselage assembly for its
UH-1 Y Huey Helicopter, and
we have several large contracts
with Bell Helicopter, Boeing,
Lockheed, L-2, GKN, Northrop .
Grumman, Gulfstream and
Vought. We will continue to give
the customer what he wants,
when he wants it and at a fair
price, but the key to the whole
thing is treating our employees -
with the same respect we want
for ourselves, and that will
never change," said Shanklin.
Crestview Aerospace grew
out of the ash of ruin, but has
arisen to take a leading role in
the highly competitive aircraft
industry.
Projected sales will top $100
million this year, which isn't bad
for a company that didn't exist
before 1990. Also in 2005,
Crestview Aerospace expanded
with the purchase of a 123,000-
sq.-foot facility in Fairhope, Ala.

Animal resuscitator gives pets breath of life


Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter
Okaloosa County pet owners can
Breath a sigh of relief and their pets can
get he breath of life thanks to the
Panhandle Animal Welfare Society and
the Emerald Coast Firefighters
Association.
PAWS received funding from the
association to purchase 23 kits. Each
Eire department in the county received
)ne.
"It's something that we have want-
3d to do for a long time but did not
have the funds in our budget," said
PAWS director Dee Thompson. "We
wanted to try and get some on each fire
truck in the county but one size did not
fit all, so we had to come up.with a way
to purchase a set of five for each
department. It was an expensive
endeavor."
The resuscitators normally sell for
around $175.00 per set, and could have
cost the county fire departments more
than $4,000.
"I told the equipment supplier I
needed a set for 23 fire trucks and I
:nly have $2,300 to do it with,"
Thompson explained.
The company felt it was a good
causee and agreed to sell PAWS the


masks for the $2,300 budget Thompson
had.
The money used to purchase the
resuscitators came from monies the
ECFA received from the sale of the
Florida firefighter tag.
"It had been an issue for several
years that we did not have the proper
equipment for dogs and cats," said
Crestview fire chief Ralph Everage. "In
the past we have had to use the same
oxygen mask that we use on humans,
and they're just not practical to provide
aid to cats and dogs."
Each fire station now has five resus-
citators, three different sizes for dogs,
and two sizes for cats.
Everage said that in the last year
two incidents immediately came to
mind in which firefighters could have
used the equipment on pets at fires
they responded to.
Thompson was anxious to get the
new equipment into the hands of the
firefighters.
"It was very important for us to get
it out at this time of year.
Unfortunately there is an increase in
fires due to Christmas decorations,
candles, heaters, fireplaces, those types
of things. It's a good thing for both the
firefighters and Okaloosa County resi-
dents," Thompson'said.


Ken Nielsen/The News Bulletin
Okaloosa County pets will now receive a second chance at life thanks to the
efforts of PAWS director Dee Thompson and the Emerald Coast Firefighters
Association. Crestview Fire Chief Ralph Everage demonstrates how a new
animal resuscitation device works on 3-year-old Chomper. All of the fire
departments In Okaloosa County received a set of the resuscitators.
Assisting Everage is PAWS animal control officer Angelina Gervasi.


One-way street should keep Laurel Hill students more safe


Ken Nielsen/The News Bulletin
Laurel Hill Mayor James Dunn holds a poster that the children made to thank the city for
making the street near the school one-way.


Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter
Laurel Hill School children
will be a little safer now thanks
to a unanimous vote recently by
the Laurel Hill City Council.
The school advisory council
approached the city council and
asked them to consider an ordi-
nance making 4th Street one way
during the hours that school
buses will be loading and
unloading students.
"We just had so much traffic
out in front of our school with
buses and parents coming to get
the children that we knew we
had to do something," said
Hazel Harper, School Advisory
Council member.
"It will make me a lot safer,"
said five-year-old kindergartner
Darby Edge.
Principal Rodney Nobles is
looking into possibly changing
the location that busses drop off


and pick up students to make the
process safer and more efficient.
"Mrs. Harper is really the one
that got the thing done," said
Nobles. "It seems to be working
very well. So far people are coop-
erating fine."
The council's vote to make the
street one way will be temporary
pending school principal Nobles
future plans.
The kindergarten students
presented Laurel Hill Mayor
James Dunn and the City
Council with a special poster to
commemorate the council's deci-
sion. Each of the child's hand-
print is colorfully displayed on
the poster.
"It impressed me so much
that I decided to hang it up on
display in City Hall," said Dunn.
The poster reads:
"Thank you for promptly
addressing our safety needs at
the school, Laurel Hill
Kindergartners 2005-2006."

SPOUSE, from page
tinsel. Presents of all colors,
shapes and sizes are huddled
under the tree and the mantle
has a trailing garland that hangs
off the edges, pointing listlessly
to the ground.
And yet Victor is missing.
"Nighttimes are sad when
the kids are asleep," Katie says.
"That's kind of sad. Decorating
the tree is a big deal; I wish he
could have been here for that."
A little more than a trace of
his presence lingers in the living
room. Pictures of him and Katie
spot the walls and he and some
small Iraqi children serve as the
desktop image on the computer.
Katie even sent him a small
Christmas tree that replicates
the one she has on an end table
positioned to the left of the front
door.
"I bought him one, too," she
says. "It's one of those corny
things, but it makes us feel clos-
er if we both have something
that we can look at."
Initially, Katie didn't know
about the blast that claimed the
lives of some of Victor's com-
rades.
She's learned to keep the tele-
vision off, avoiding the evening
news and especially avoiding
news channels that constantly
rerun streaming video feeds
from the chaos on the Iraqi
streets.
"He's not somewhere isolat-
ed in the desert; he's stationed in
a market town. Seven or eight
people have died in his compa-
ny," she says. "I try not to get
'too involved in watching the
news. It will scare you to death."
The Everetts were separated
last December when Victor and
his company joined up with a
Marine division for secret train-
ing that would prepare them for
the warfront. He was stationed
at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville,
N.C., where the couple lived.


TEEN, from page 1
Randall Joiner, another
deputy, issued the warrant,
arresting Sears at the high
school on Nov. 29, with the
charge of lewd and lascivious
molestation.
Sears was enrolled at the
North Okaloosa Institute, a per-
formance-based program that
helps school dropouts get back
on track ; nd& eakn)ia diploma,
The classes are from 2.to 8 p.m.,
Mon. through Fri., according to
Andy Johnson, principal, at
Crestview High School.
Joiner went to the school at 4
p.m. and got Sears out of his


Special to The News Bulletin
Victor Everett (left) poses with three Iraqi children. One of the hardest aspects of the war for Everett
is the toll it's taking on the children in Iraq. Katie Everett, his wife, says that it makes him think of his


own two small girls in Crestview.
After being separated, Katie
moved back to Crestview, her
hometown, where she and
Victor first met at Crestview
High School.
"We were high school sweet-
hearts," she says, proudly.
They've been married for more
than four years and are both 23
years old.
. While Victor was in training,
the couple made routine trips,
meeting at halfway points. That
all changed, however, when he
was deployed in July.
Since Victor left, the couple
will sometimes go for more than
two weeks without speaking to
each other. Victor doesn't have
access to the hiternet and when
he can sneak a call, their conver-
sation is often stifled by the poor
reception of the satellite phone
from which he calls.
"He sounds like a robot
when I talk to him," she says. "It
makes me realize how much dis-
tance is between us.
"Wartime deployment is so
taxing," she adds. "I never real-

already connected Sears with
the string of burglaries and
delivered him to the
Department of Juvenile Justice.
Joiner explained that he had
gone to speak with Sears about
the sexual molestation offense
and soon realized that he might
be involved in the rash of bur-
glAi "n ridebe~tv7wtaurel
Hill and Florala areas.
"I picked him up on the war-
rant at Crestview High School
that afternoon and transported
him to DJJ (Department of
Juvenile Justice)," Joiner said.


ized the sacrifices that military
families make."
Katie and the girls put an "X"
on each day of the calendar,
marking off the time that sepa-
rates the couple.
"We practically throw a party
when we get to rip a month of
the calendar," she says. "We
rejoice."
Katie says that one of the
hardest things about Victor's
absence is the impact it makes
on their little girls.
"Elizabeth cries a lot," she
says. "Sydney knows that he's
gone, but she's too young to
really verbalize how she feels. I
had to explain 'to Elizabeth that
Sanrta couldn't bring Daddy
home for Christmas."
As one of the trainers of the
Iraqi army, Victor often sees chil-
dren who have been scarred by
bombs and loud gunfire.
"That's one of the hardest
parts for him, being away from
his kids and seeing the hurt
faces of so many children in
Iraq," she says.


When asked, Sears told
Joiner that he didn't know the
address where he lived because
he had recently moved.
Sears told Joiner that his
grandparents would know, so
he called them, eventually track-
ing down his mother, Donna
Sears, who lives in Laurel Hill.
"I caught note of the Laurel
Hill address,"Jjoiner saia'.
"Due to the recent influx of
burglaries in the area I felt that
there was a strong possibility
that nhe was involved in some
way."
After Joiner pressed the issue,


Katie sends at least one care
package to Victor every week.
Usually she sends handmade
gifts from Elizabeth, cards and
pictures of she and the girls dec-
orating the house for the holi-
days.
"It's comforting to him to see
that we're living life as usual,"
she says.
Katie prays with Elizabeth
everyday, encouraging her that.
her daddy will be safe and will
come home to her.
Katie says that her faith is
what gets her through each day.
"Faith is the only way that
I've been strong enough to get
through this," she says.
She also spends time with
friends in her Bible study life
group at Emmanuel Baptist
Church and talks frequently
with other wives who are still
living in North Carolina.
"You have to be renewed
. everyday," she says. "Yeah, it's
difficult. Every day has its wor-
ries. But we have big plans for
February."


Sears confessed that he and
Schoop had committed several
burglaries in the suspected areas.
"He told me that it had actu-
ally become an addiction for
him," Joiner said.
The burglary investigation is
becoming more widespread.
"There's been so many bur-
glaries that we're still trying to
contact cZ mb aAt, FTV,'c d.
"Each day' we're flodirl. niore
and more. It's just a matter of
time to determine how many
they're going to be involved in.
They've stolen anything from
four wheelers to guns."

Crestview police officer Edward Nelson takes Lawrence Moore, 19, into custody at Thursday
night's CHS boys basketball game. Moore entered the high school with a pocketful of illegal
drugs. Quick thinking and intuitive county and city law enforcement officers nabbed him. Below,
officers display the drugs and money confiscated from Moore.

Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter
Lawrence D. Moore, 19, of
Crestview, got more than a bas-
ketball game for his four dollars
Thursday night.
Moore was charged with pos-
session of a controlled substance
after law enforcement personnel
working security at the CHS
boy's basketball game smelled a
heavy odor of marijuana on him.
"As soon as he walked in the
door you could smell the drug
on him," said Okaloosa Sheriff
deputy and school resource offi-
cer Cindy Otto.
She and Crestview police
investigator John Cook, also
working security at the game,
approached Moore and asked
him if he had anything illegal on
him that he should not.
"He answered yes, a little bit
of everything," said Cook.
Cook then asked Moore if he
would agree to a search and
Moore said yes.
"I felt something in his left
pocket," Cook continued. ."I
asked Moore. what it was and he
stated it was "rock".


Cook then had Moore empty
his pockets. On his person
Moore had four individually
wrapped baggies of rock/pow-
der cocaine weighing 0.8 grams
each, a baggie containing 8
green tablets which Moore said
it was the drug Ectassy, and
$221.00 in cash.
"It concerns me that someone
would use an athletic evenrtor ,>
,any other school activity to :
bring drugs into the school,"


said CHS principal Andy
Johnson.
Johnson said that it's impor-
tant for people to know that law
enforcement officials are at
every school event and prepared
to take action when necessary.
"I just want to commend
*both our resource officer,
Deputy Otto, and Crestview
police otfker Co-for thei'irfib-.

said.

YMCA raises money with Tips for Tots


Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter
The North Okaloosa YMCA
board members and volunteers
served lunch at Sonny's Bar-B-
Que Friday in their annual Tips
for Tots Christmas fundraiser.
All of the tips that waitresses
earned during Friday's lunch
went to the NOYMCA.
"Our employees love to do it
and it gives us an opportunity to
give back to our local communi-
ty," said Sonny's restaurant
manager Traci Mooney.
The organization raised near-
ly $500.00 during the three hour
lunch period.
"All of the proceeds will go
towards our programs here at
the local YMCA," said program
director Ammye Myers. "I
believe the majority will go to
help fund our scholarship pro-
gram, and then some will go
towards equipment and much
needed supplies."
The NOYMCA has been
closed since September 2004

whom she worked.,

and Flag Day.
They are not

November we have Veterans'

They are not Thank You-lo-
Anyone-Who-Had-a-Job Day or
Reflection Day. And then we


come to December's Christmas
Day. What's the deal about
Christmas?
Well, some people have suc-
ceeded in changing certain
days. Washington's and
Lincoln's Birthdays are not hon-
ored. They have been changed
into the bland and all-inclusive
Presidents' Day, as if all presi-
dents are to be remembered
with equal honor and respect. I
understand that it is becoming
"politically correct" to not say
much in history classes about
our founding fathers. Of
course, if you honor them too
much, you might honor (and
want to follow) their ideals as
set down in the Declaration of
Independence and the
Constitution. If you want to
drastically change your country,


you have got to indoctrinate
young minds .about the failures
and flaws of these men.
Interestingly, these men did not
believe in the goodness of men
but in the sinfulness of men.
They would be the first to
declare their imperfection. In a
strange twist, those who would
change our country drastically
believe in the goodness of men
in general but the badness of
these founding fathers specifi-
cally. There is something sinis-
ter afloat.
What's the deal now about
Christmas? We didn't see it
coming. It has been developing
for a few years. We should
have suspected something
when the television programs,
movies, and advertisers started
calling Thanksgiving "Turkey


Day." That term has
s now permeated our
society. Now these
institutions are so fixed
on, "the holidays," that they
find they have created a vehicle
running downhill with no
brakes. They just can't stop
saying, "Happy Holidays,"
even when it is pointed out that
85% of Americans claim to be
Christian and 95% celebrate
Christmas. They can't get it
through their thick skulls that
the vast majority wants to hear
the word Christmas. 'We want
to hear it because it contains the
name of our Lord and Savior,
Jesus Christ. Granted, some
may want to hear "Merry
Christmas" for nostalgia's sake,
but the above-mentioned insti-
tutions don't want to hear it, or
don't want the 5% to hear it,
because of the very mention of
the name of Christ.


Now what about that name?
The Bible says that the
Heavenly Father has "highly
exalted Him (Christ), and given
Him a name which is above
every name: that at the name
of Jesus every knee should bow,
of things in heaven, and things
in earth, and things under the
earth; and that every tongue
should confess that Jesus Christ
is Lord, to the glory of God the
Father" (Philippians 2:9-11). All
will honor that name, even
those who first wanted to take
Christ out of Christmas, and
now just want to take out the
name, Christmas. It would be
so much better to honor Him
now in happiness and joy, than
to honor Him at the judgment
in horror and misery. That is a
big deal!

Crestview players Soccer


show versatility
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

Crestview's girls soccer players know
how to reach their goals both on and
off of the field.
Bulldogs coach Bob Sikes has a roster
filled with players with accomplished
athletic and academic resumes.
"We don't have too many girls who do
just soccer," said senior Danielle Prien, a
four-year soccer letterwinner and also
CHS band president.
Part of .the Bulldogs' roster reads like a
list of the county's top musicians. Players
like Prien (French horn), Kimberly
Johnston (flute) and Leigh Hooker (trum-
pet) hit all the right notes on the field and
with their instruments. Players like
Rachael Ries and Jessica Makowski


gracefully juggle soccer and Big Red
Machine color guard responsibilities.
Part of the roster reads like the list of
Crestview's junior class honor roll. Lexi
Ardissone, Mary Andrews, Ries, Stacey
Meyers and Elizabeth Wood all rank
near the top of the Class of 2007 aca-
demically. Kristen Anderson will gradu-
ate this year near the top of Crestview's
senior class.
"Some of our girls, I don't know how
they do it," said Anderson, who takes
three Advanced Placement classes and
holds down a job. "I know our band and
color .guard girls will have soccer prac-
tice, then they have 30 minutes to get
something to eat and then come back to
school for band."
The traits that help the Crestview soc-
cer players succeed off the field also come
in handy during matches.
"We are very determined and driven
most of the time," Ardissone said. "A lot


Baker's Summrerlin
named All-State
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

Crestview junior Joseph
Thigpen got quite a surprise
during the Challenger Award
ceremony on Monday in the
Pensacola Civic Center.
Thigpen was honored as
Crestview's recipient of the
Challenger Award, presented to
players who demonstrate
Christian values off of the field
and sportsmanship on the field.
The First Baptist Church of
Pensacola presented the award
to one studentathlete from 22
schools across northwest Florida
and southeast Alabama.
"My parents knew I was get-
ting the award, but I had no
idea," said Thigpen, who just
finished his second season as the


CHS football team's starting
quarterback. "When I got up
there, I didn't know where to go.
It was a super long walk, and I
think (Crestview baseball coach
Tim) Gillis got done talking
before I got up there."
The winners got to hear testi-
mony from several NCAA
Division I football players.
Thigpen, an avid Florida fan,
actually enjoyed hearing from
Auburn wide receiver Ben
Obomanu.'
"He gave a really good talk,"
Thigpen said. "Athletes always


of motivation on this team. I don't know
where it comes from, but it's there."
The Dawgs have endured some strug-
gles on the field this winter. Crestview
fell to 1-9 overall and 0-8 in District 1-5A
after a loss 5-0 Thursday against
Choctawhatchee. The Big Red Machine's
busy fall band schedule including the
appearance in the Macy's Thanksgiving
Day Parade limited the girls soccer
team's numbers for the first half of the
season.
Sikes doesn't fret. He knows the
brightest students sometimes stumble
during the learning process. And he sees
progress in the Dawgs' first year as a
Class 5A program.
"We expected it to be tougher," said
Sikes, who would put his team's cumula-
tive GPA up against anyone. "But I can
see now that we play better each match'
and do more things well each match.
"Now we're starting to get people
together and train and practice together,
and that is starting to pay dividends."


want to see other athletes out
there doing what God called
them to do."
Thigpen quarterbacked
Crestview's football team to a 7-
3 record this fall. He serves as
captain of the CHS Fellowship
of Christian' Athletes, and stays
active in the. First United
Methodist Church.

Too much Desire


Ken Nielsen/The News Bulletin
Crestview's Kelii Peters goes up for two of his 38 points
Thursday against Desire Street Academy.


New Orleans

team tops CHS
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

Desire Street Academy's boys
basketball team made itself at
home in Crestview's gymnasi-
um Thursday night.
The Lions a New Orleans
school relocated to Camp
Timpoochee in Niceville in the
af ftflafit 6f Hbfii aiti Katrina
- rode a hot shooting night to a
72-66 overtime victory over the
Bulldogs. Desire Street Academy
shot 54 percent from the field to
offset a 38-point outing from
Bulldogs senior Kelii Peters.
Crestview plans to split
Thursday's gate proceeds with
DSA.
"For what they've already
gone through and what they
face day in and day out, I'll help
them out any way I can," said
CHS coach Brian Humphrey,
whose team fell to 1-4 entering a
game Friday at Walton. "They
are hundreds of miles from
home and they've been staying
at a camp for three months, so
what they've done with this
group of kids is great.
"I just would have liked to
beat them, and then give them
something."
Desire Street travels back to
Louisiana and Mississippi for
most of its games. The Lions
have picked up four games and
a tournament in Florida, includ-
ing a game Tuesday at Pensacola
and Thursday's contest at CHS.


Desire Street coach Myron
Celestine discussed the other
challenges facing his displaced
squad this year.
Celestine needed some
time to locate all of his players
after they scattered across the
country in the wake of
Hurricane Katrina.
The school and most of the
players lost their basketball gear
in the storm.
The Lions must practice at
unusual times, when gymnasi-
ums in the. area have an open-
ing. A typical Desire Street
workout might start at 9 p.m.
"There have been so many
things," Celestine said. "But the
Lord worked everything out for
us."
Crestview's players took the
floor a little uncertain what to
expect from the Lions. They
knew about the school's plight.
They also knew they faced a
team with plenty of height and
skill.
Those concerns probably
contributed to the Dawg's early
7-0 deficit.
"All we heard about was
their athleticism and how good
they were and how no one
around here wanted to play
them," CHS guard Trey Hayes.
"We were a little intimidated
and curious to see what it was
.,going to be like playing against
them."
The game turned into a con-
test of runs.
Lions point guard Kerry
Matthews frequently fed his big
men for baskets, and also
dropped in three timely 3-point-
ers.


Crestview countered when'
Peters and Kelley Parris (15
points) started carving up
Desire Street's defense like left-
over Thanksgiving turkey.
Peters sank nine field goals
and sank 20 of 24 free throws en
route to his big night. Parris
made his last four shots of regu-
lation.
A productive third quarter
from Crestview's "Sweet Ps"
staked the Dawgs to a 43-40 lead
entering the final period.
.. .Desire Street knows alJ,qbout
overcoming adversity, though,
and the Lions quickly erased the
deficit. The Dawgs needed two
Peters free throws with 11.1 sec-
onds left to force the overtime.
Desire Street's Albert
Bickham scored the first five
points of the extra session as the
Lions raced out to a 66-58 lead.
The Dawgs would get within
three, but no closer.
"I liked the way my guys
handled things," said Celestine,
who doesn't have a senior on his
roster. "They held on and perse-
vered the whole time. It showed
the character of the team."
The Crestview players would
have :liked an opportunity to
talk to the Lion players about
their unique predicament, but
didn't get a chance during the
tightly-contested game.
"I tried, but they weren't in a
talkative mood," Peters said.
"Which is understandable,
being in their position and hav-
ing to travel how they have to."
Added Parris: "It was a good
game and a good experience. We
just needed to pull it out down
the stretch."
