Fire Marshal

releases report

on Riverwood,

Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter
The Bureau of Fire and Arson
Investigations, Florida Fire
Marshal's Office has completed
their investigation into the cause of
the fire that destroyed part of the
Riverwood Apartments on Nov.
10.
According to Florida Fire
Marshal's Office Detective Stephen
Callahan, the cause has been dassi-
fied as accidental.
"It started in the area of the sec-
ond floor and is attributed to the
careless disposal of tobacco prod-
ucts," said Callahan.
The six-week investigation
included interviews with the resi-
dents occupying the apartments
affected by the fire and material
evidence collected at the scene.
Linda Peaden lived in the third
floor apartment directly above
where the investigators deter-
mined the fire began. Her apart-
ment and all of her personal
belongings were completely con-
sumed by the blaze.
"I was pretty sure the fire start-
ed right below my apartment,"
said Peaden. "I told the investiga-
tors the next day that I had smelled
cigarette smoke coming through
my window before I went to bed."
The fire damaged a total of five
apartments.."We have had to gut.
everything out of those five units,"
said Heather Mawad, general
manager for Riverwood
Apartments. "We hope to begin
reconstruction next month and
have them available for tenants by
the first part of May.
Mawad said this was her first
experience with a traumatic inci-
dent of this scope.
"I was really impressed with
the way all of our residents came
together and supported those five
families," said Mawad. But what
impressed her most was the way
the American Red Cross came to,
the rescue that very evening. "The
Red Cross was here almost before
the fire was out They really did a
tremendous job and deserve a lot
of credit."

Milligan wreck leaves one critical


Ken NielsenfThe News Bulletin
Okaloosa County Sheriff deputy John Duenas climbs on the hood of this Mazda to help rescue workers free the entrapped body of woman that collided
with a truck at the Intersection of U.S. Highway 90 west and Old River Road Friday afternoon. The unidentified woman was flown by helicopter to Baptist
Hospital. The extent of her injuries were unknown.

Woman LifeFlighted after crashing into septic tank service truck


Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter
Baptist Hospital's LifeFlight
helicopter was called to airlift an
unidentified woman from the scene
of an accident Friday afternoon in
Milligan.
The wreck occurred around
12:30 p.m. at the intersection of U.S.
Highway 90 west and Old River
Road.
Michael Burlison, in amazement,
watched the whole thing transpire
from the parking lot of the corner
convenience store at the intersec-
tion.
"I saw her coming down


Wadsworth at a pretty good clip,"
said Burlison. "She never even
slowed down for the stop sign at
Old River."
Burlison then said that the driver
turned right and headed straight
out into Highway 90.
"I thought for sure she .was
going to stop at 90," Burlison con-
tinued. "Lots of people sort of ease
through the stop sign at Old River
Road, but I couldn't believe that
she ran the stop sign at U.S.
Highway 90."
Other witnesses said a
Wilkinson Septic Tank and
Pumping Service truck was travel-
ling west on Highway 90, tried to


stop, but rammed into the side of
the woman's car.
Her vehicle slid about 50 yards
across the eastbound lane of
Highway 90 and came to rest in a
wooded area.
"Myself and some others that
were in the parking lot ran over to
see if she was okay," said Burlison.
"She had a lot of blood coming
from her forehead and was picking
glass out from her eye."
When emergency response per-
sonnel arrived moments later, the
woman had slipped into uncon-
sciousness and the EMTs called for
Baptist LifeFlight.
It took firefighters from the


North Okaloosa and Crestview fire
departments about 20 minutes to
cut the metal away from around
her body so that they could lift her
out.
They then transported her to the
helicopter that was staged 1/4 mile
away in the Flemming Lumber
Yard.
East and west traffic on U.S.
Highway 90 was halted for about
30 minutes.
The Florida Highway Patrol
investigated the accident. No infor-
mation was released Friday after-
noon as to the identity of the
woman or whether charges are
pending.


Park founder has sights set as high as the tree tops


Adam Ziglar/The News Bulletin
John McMahon explains to members of the Baker
Garden Club why foresters plant trees in rows.


Adam Ziglar
News Bulletin Relorter
Most area residents don't know that
Crestview has a nature park.
In fact, the city has had the Hub City
Environmental Education Center since
1979, when it signed a 30-year lease
with the state Division of Forestry.
Since then, the park has underwent
a few changes, including the height of
the pine trees and the other coniferous
creations that have spruced up within
the 1 1/2 acre fenced, arboretum.
On Tuesday, the Baker Garden Club
visited the park, where they got a first-
hand look at the plants in one of north-
west Florida's only arboretums, The
park has the oldest nursery of native
trees in all of northwest Florida.


John McMahon, the park's founder
and t6ur guide, explained to the dub
how air, plants, soil, animals and water
intertwine to create the cycle of life that
exists in all of nature. Photosynthesis,
germination, harvest, growth manage-
ment, energy growth cycle: these were
just a handful of the terms that were
scattered throughout the retired
forester's lecture to the group.
Each year, McMahon gives tours to
more than 400 school students and
other groups like the garden club. He
hopes that more people will begin to
show interest in park.
In 1979, he thought the city leasing
the land was a good idea.
When he took on the project, he was
the county's forester the first forester
in all of Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and


Walton Counties, beginning his career
in 1951.
The state Division of Forestry want-
ed to abandon the site, which sits on a
total of five acres and includes a build-
ing filled with various regional stuffed
animals, glass displays filled with
insects and maps of the Blackwater
and Yellow Rivers and the surround-
ing areas.
"I said to the city leaders at that
time, 'Why not develop a nature park
for school kids?'"
In 1979, McMahon acquired a $5,000
grant from the Florida Department of
Education and, with the help of locals
and school officials, he planted 93 dif-
ferent types of plants and also filled

Local barber seeks center for country music in Crestview


John Parrott
Bulletin Contributing Writer
Walking into Mack Brooks
barbershop at 190 South
Main Street in Crestview is
an experience akin to taking
a stroll down memory lane
for anyone 50 years of age or
older.
It definitely isn't one of
those glitzy, glass and
chrome boutiques where you
can get a manicure and pedi-
cure while having your hair
managed by someone named
Lance or Cyril.
However, it is a place to
sit, relax, and get a haircut
while enjoying a dose of local
gossip and some Crestview
history. The first thing you
notice is it looks and smells
like a barbershop, and it will
instantly remind you of the
place your dad or grandfa-
ther got their hair cut.
The shop may appear clut-
tered to some, but to others it
will look like a barbershop
ought. The walls are plas-
tered with black and white
photographs of famous and
some not so famous politi-
cians, along with those of
family and friends.
There are other pho-
tographs as well, and prized
among them is the collection
of those who have wandered
in and out of his shop over
the past 50 years doing what
they like doing best: playing
pure unadulterated country
music.
It is this continuation of a
ritual first begun in 1960 that
draws musicians to his shop
as moths to a flame. The


John Parrott/The News Bulletin
Mack Brooks (center) has music on his mind. The area barber and fiddle player would like to
have a country music conservatory opened in Crestview.


Saturday ritual begins at 2
p.m. as Brooks puts away his
clippers and takes out his
fiddle. From then on there is
nothing but a pure, honest to
goodness country hoedown.
On this particular
Saturday, eight musicians
form the group.
Lois Lancaster is on the
electronic keyboard; Cowboy
Colley, guitar; Tom Sutton,
guitar; Lee Chamblee, fiddle;
Rick Andenfield, guitar;
Sandra Boswell, guitar;
Brooks; Pat Carleton, banjo;
Oliver Wade, guitar; and
singer Kathleen Henderson.
What is so amazing about
these sessions is they are
completely unrehearsed.


There are about 100 current
musicians who often take
part in these impromptu
gigs, and usually about 10 or
12 show up on any given
Saturday.
They come from divergent
backgrounds and have a
wide range of musical abili-
ties, from the beginner to the
highly accomplished,
although it isn't about who is
more talented, or who has
the best looking instrument.
It is about the playing and
preservation of a form of
music that has roots in the
earliest times of our country.
Surprisingly, this ritual
has been going on virtually
unnoticed for almost 50

years.
"I started in March 1960,"
said Brooks while holding
his fiddle.
"I'd opened my first shop,
just up the street in the old
J.T. Faircloth shop and I got
to thinking about the old
timers and how they'd some-
times get together and play
on Saturday afternoon, and
that's how it got started. I
remember fiddler John King,
and fellows like Olin Mayo,
Obie Adams and Runt Steele,
and all of them was great
musicians," Brooks said.
"And as they died off, I
started thinking about what
we needed to do to preserve
this kind of music. That's
when I got the idea about a
music museum right here in
Crestview."
"I've been thinking about
that for a long time now and
I think Crestview needs a
place like that for young
musicians to come and learn
their craft. That's the reason
I am really pushing for the

city to rework the old Alatex
building and turn part of it
into a museum or music con-
servatory."
"There just aren't any
places young people can go
to get together and play, and
that's how they learn,"
Brooks said.
"They could learn from
people like me, and others
who have been handed
down country music in its
purest form."
He ought to know,
because he grew up with a
music background. "My
grandfather, Joe Adkins, was
a music teacher and I learned
from him. Country music
was always part of my every-
day life," said Brooks.
"I grew up on his farm in
Baker and since he was so
well known as a music
teacher, people like Red
Foley, Roy Acuff and Hank
Williams used to visit him
pretty regular, and to me
they was just ordinary peo-
ple," Brooks said.
"I'll tell you something
else my grandparents
raised Grand Old Opry star
Lew Childre."
Brooks stands in the mid-
dle of his shop with bow in

It's all about the music as (from left) Lee Chamblis plays the fid-
dle, Rick Endenfield and Cowboy Colley play the guitar and Pat
Carleton plays the banjo.

hand and said, "Lot of folks
tend to forget I keep the
music going. It would be a
shame for it to end.
"What if nobody ever
heard the story about fiddler
John King? I bet you don't
know who I'm talking
about," Brooks asked.
"Crestview pioneer and fid-
dler John King and some of
his fiddle playing friends
would congregate in Keel's
barbershop and entertain
Saturday afternoon crowds.
Anyway the Chicago mob-
ster, Al Capone, used to
come down here and stay at
the old Valparaiso Inn, and
he heard John playing the
fiddle one night and liked it
so well that he took him back
to Chicago to work in his
saloons.
"A lot of people don't
know that," he added.
"John even married a
woman from Chicago and
brought her back here."
These are the kind of sto-
ries and recollections that
Brooks wants to become part
of the musical heritage of
Crestview.
Men like John King began
it, and Mack Brooks wants to
preserve it.

where it can provide dear and

at very low speeds, 'at times
allowing themselves to
remain nearly stationary
where they hover silently.
They also have the unique
advantage of being able to
stay airborne for long periods
of time.
Carrying state-of-the-art
camera equipment weighing
approximately 250 pounds,
the Bloomin' Onion I provides
a unique perspective of the
action below. The camera has
the capability of shooting play
action as well as the wide-
angle "beauty shots" tradi-
tionally provided by aerial
cameras:
The Bloomin' Onion I is
equipped with a gyro-stabi-
lized camera mounted on the
nose of the gondola.
The camera technician
operates the equipment from
within the gondola by two
joysticks, much like a video
game. The cameraman
receives his cues from the'


link. A microwave transmitter
sends the camera's signal
from the blimp to a receiver
on the ground. The signal is
then fed live into the produc-
tion truck or put on videotape
for later broadcast or replay.
The outer covering of the
blimp, or envelope, consists of
a high-tech 3-layer material
consisting of a weather resis-
tant plastic film laminated to a
rip-stop polyester fabric on
the outer surface, and a tedlar
helium barrier on the inner
surface. Though the envelope
may appear taut and rigid, it
is actually very flexible. Thus
the term "non-rigid" is used
to distinguish today's blimps
from the metal-framed zep-
pelins of the early 1900's.
There are multiple stories
on the origin of the word
"blimp". One comes from a
combination of the Naval des-
ignation for a "lighter-than-
air" craft, type "B", and
"limp", meaning "non-rigid".
The other, more popular, story
is that "blimp" is the sound

heard by a military general
during WWII, when he
tapped on the envelope of a
non-rigid airship trying to
determine what the material
was.
The Outback Steakhouse
Blooming' Onion I blimp is
illuminated from nose to tail
by two special ultrahigh effi-
ciency 1000-watt lamps
mounted inside the top of the
envelope. Each envelope pro-
vides an enormous amount of
light providing dramatic
nighttime visibility. An Aussie
boomerang, symbolic of the
Australian themed steak-
house, is displayed on both
sides of the blimp.
The blimp's teardrop shape
is maintained by regulating
the internal pressure of the
helium gas that fills the craft.
Centrally located inside the
envelope is an igloo shaped
air chamber called the rbal-
lonet.
Although the bulk of the
envelope is filled with helium,.
the air filled ballonet expands
and contracts to compensate
,.for changes in the helium vol-
tnime-due-to varyirtg tempera-i
ture and altitude. The pilot
controls the ballonets, so he
need not discharge, or "valve
off", the expensive helium
gas.
Helium has been used as
the lifting gas for airships for
more than 50 years. It is a nat-
ural inert element that is often
found in natural gas deposits.
Helium is the lifting agent of'
choice as it is nonflammable
and, therefore, one of. the
safest lifting agents for,
blimps.
While on the ground, 'the
blimp is secured to a station-
ary pole, called the mooring
mast, which is erected at the
landing area. A rigid nose
dish is mounted on the front
of the envelope and is
attached to the mooring mast
when the ship is grounded.
When moored in this manner,
the blimp can move freely
around the mast as the wind
direction changes, yet is fully
secure. Also attached to the
nose dish are 'the nose lines,
which are used by the ground
crew to maneuver the ship
during takeoffs and landings,
and to keep the blimp steady
during passenger exchanges.
The tail fins, which help
control flight direction, are
anchored to the envelope at
the rear of the ship and are
supported by guide wires.
The elevators and rudders,
which also assist in guiding
the blimp's movement, are
mounted to the fins' edges
with hinges. The pilot can
control the pitch and direction
of the blimp by manipulating

lead shot bags are used.

A win-win situation for Florida farmers and their communities


This article is provided by
the Florida Department of
Agriculture.

Small farmers and the nutri-
tionally at-risk help each
other in Florida's WIC
Farmers' Market Nutrition
Program
"I like shopping at farm-
ers' markets because I want
to help local farmers."
"I love the service and
fresh fruits."
"The farmers' market is a
good way to get everyone to
start eating healthy."
"I enjoy taking the kids to
learn about fresh fruits and
vegetables."
"I like the people!"

This is what women are
saying about their introduc-
tion to Florida's farmers'
markets through the
Farmers' Market Nutrition
Program (FMNP). The
FMNP is a cooperative fed-
eral-state program that
encourages low-income
women to shop at local
farmers' markets for fresh
fruits and vegetables to feed
themselves and their chil-
dren.
At Tallahassee's
Downtown Market on a
sunny Saturday morning,
it's easy to see why shop-
pers would be enthusiastic.
Under shady tents, beneath
granddaddy oaks, tables are
brimming with ripe pro-
duce, fragrant herbs, and
buckets of just-picked zin-
nias and sunflowers. There
are tomatoes red as roses
and sweet as some exotic
tropical fruit; shiny bell pep-
pers; fat organic blueberries;
sunny squash; fluffy piles of
arugula; gorgeous mush-
rooms; and more-much
more. The market is like a
giant cornucopia-boun-
teous, eye-popping, mouth-
watering. The atmosphere is
festive and friendly asfarm-
ers and their customers
laugh, chat, and get to know
one another.
The Florida
WIC/Farmers' Market
Nutrition Program is admin-
istered by the Florida
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services,
-which is headed by Florida
,Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson. Using
-state and federal funds, the
-program is operated in-
-cooperation with the Flprida
Department of Health, local
-WIC offices, and the
University of Florida's
'Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences and
Cooperative Extension
Service.
,; ,It began in Florida as a
,pilot program with only
three'counties participating.
Now 16 North Florida coun-
ties, nearly 200 growers, and
'-over'34,000 women and chil-
d:eittpke part. From the
start, the program has been
well received by both farm-
"Recipients like shopping
at the farmers' markets
because the food is afford-
able and fresh, and they can


establish a rapport with the
farmers," Bronson said. "The
farmers like it because it
means more customers and
an extra income for them. A
lot of the farmers that partic-
ipate have very small farms,
and the extra money really
means a lot to them."
The Farmers' Market
Nutrition Program is an off-
shoot of the Special
Supplemental Nutrition
Program for Women,
Infants, and Children, popu-
larly known as WIC. WIC
provides supplemental food,
health care referrals, and
nutrition education to young
children and pregnant, post-


partum, and breastfeeding
women who are nutritional-
ly at risk. WIC is a program
with a proven track record.
For every dollar spent on
WIC prenatal services, there
is a savings of $3.50 over the
next 18 years on such costs
as hospitalization, outpatient
care, special education, and
supplemental care for dis-
abled children.
The Farmers' Market
Nutrition Program was
established by Congress in
1992 as an extension of WIC.
Its mission is two-fold: to
provide nutrition informa-
tion on the importance of
fresh fruits and vegetables to
women and children, ..., -.
enrolled in WIC; and to
increase awareness of, use
of, and sales at farmers'
markets. Once a year, each
recipient receives $20 worth
of coupons to spend
between April 1 and July 31
on fresh, unprocessed, local-
ly grown produce. USDA
provides funding for food'
and 70 percent of the admin-
istrative costs, while the
state funds 30 percent of
administrative costs.
The FMNP uses the estab-
lished WIC infrastructure to
educate nutritionally at-risk
individuals on the impor-
tance of including fresh
fruits and vegetables in their
everyday diet..The coupons
are given as an incentive to
try the fruits and vegetables
on which the recipients have
just received information.
Statistics show Americans
desperately need training in
how to eat right. Childhood
obesity has tripled in the last
20 years, the rate of Type II
diabetes is up, and diet-
related illnesses and deaths
now cost the nation billions
of dollars annually.

Human Services, only 20
percent of American kids eat
the recommended servings
of fruits and vegetables.
That's bad news, because
research proves that eating
at least five portions of fruits
and vegetables each day has
very real health benefits.
Fruits and vegetables tend to
be low in fat and calories.
They pack plenty of fiber
and vitamins A and C. They
can even help reduce our
risk of heart disease and
some cancers.
Through the FMNP, par-
ticipating farmers become
teachers, sharing their
knowledge and experience.


County extension agents get
into the act too, setting up
booths at the markets to dis-
tribute nutrition informa-
tion.
"A lot of young people
might not be familiar with
how to cook some of our
produce," said Mitchell
Anderson, a farmer from
Bradford County. "They ask
questions, and my wife and
I are able to share cooking
tips. It's a nice opportunity
for them to get to talk to
older people who know how
to prepare the foods. You
know, we've had quite a few
years of experience growing
these things."
- But why the emphasis on
farmers' markets? If you talk
to the .people who organize
them, sell at them, and shop
at them, the answer seems
pretty clear-cut: Buying and
eating fresh, locally grown
produce is good for women,
and it's good for their chil-
dren. It's good for small
farmers and the local econo-
my and community. It's
even good for the environ-
ment.
"The Farmers' Market
Nutrition Program is really
important because it goes
beyond traditional food
stamps," said Sharon Yeago,
manager of the High Springs
Farmers' Market in Alachua
County. "At the farmers'
markets you're buying a
product that was harvested
within 24 hours of your pur-
chase, so you're getting
almost 100 percent of the
nutritional value. You're get-
ting better quality and better
value."
Supermarket produce
tends to travel long dis-
tances (1,500 miles is about

average, studies show) and
sit for days before being
sold. Quality, nutritional
value, flavor and even tex-
ture can be affected. When
people try produce fresh
from the farm, they are often
surprised by the difference.
"Taste," Yeago said.
"That's what really gets peo-
ple first. A carrot fresh from
the ground is tender and
delicious. There's so much
flavor. It's so dramatic.
People get hooked."
People can feed them-
selves better, for less money,
at their local farmers' mar-
kets, Yeago said. And this is
something many FMNP
recipients come to realize
after just a few visits.
The produce isn't just
more nutritious; it's more
interesting, too. Farmers'
markets often feature unusu-
al heirloom varieties and
organic and naturally grown
items. The emphasis is on
flavor, rather than long shelf
life. Delicious, highly perish-
able regional specialties-
persimmons and scupper-
nongs, for instance, in North
Florida, lychees and custard
apples in South Florida-can
be found at the markets in
season.
As it turns out, buying
local food is a very environ-
mentally friendly decision.
When we buy local, we cut
down on the miles our food
has to travel, reducing our
dependence on fossil fuels.
We also reduce our con-
sumption of wasteful pack-
aging. (At farmers' markets
most of the produce is sold
loose and carried home in
recycled grocery bags.)
Perhaps most important,
buying local helps preserve
Florida's rapidly disappear-
ing rural landscape, the
green, open spaces long nur-
tured by farm families.
The FMNP is an invest-
ment in local agriculture. In
order to participate in the

farmers; they can t simply
buy produce-from;someone
else and sell it at their local
market. County extension
agents work with staff at the
Bureau of State Farmers'
Markets to make sure that
participants are certified and

Though FMNP officials
and participants are pleased
with the program, they con-
tinue to work to improve it.
One area they are concen-
trating on is the redemption
rate of the coupons, which
usually hovers at a little
over 50 percent in Florida.
(As officials work to
improve redemption rates,
they have been routinely
over-issuing coupons to
make sure all the grant
money is spent.) The two


main reasons WIC recipients
cite for not redeeming their
coupons are scheduling con-
flicts and lack of transporta-
tion to the markets.

The new prescription drug
plan known as Medicare Part
D took effect Jan. 1, ending the
40-year reign of the Medicaid
program, which was created
to benefit seniors over 65 with
low incomes.
This is the most significant
change in the program since
its creation 40 years ago.
Part D offers insurance cov-
erage for many prescription
drugs through plans provided
by private companies that
have been approved by
Medicare.
Currently, there are 47 pri-
vate companies in Florida that
offer prescription drug cover-
age through Part D, according
to Michele Richard, a pharma-
cist at Moulton's Pharmacy.
She has first-hand experience
of people's frustrations with
the new, plan.
However, though she
agrees that the program got
off to a rough start, she
believes that the initial birth
pangs will subside and the
program will prove to be ben-
eficial for most seniors.
"I'Tve been impressed," she
says, when asked if she
thought the problems were
small, considering the size of
the federal program. "There
have been a lot of problems as
far as people not receiving
cards yet, but it's all things that
we've been able to deal with."
The problems with the new
system vary, but Richard says
that the people who have been
affected the most by the
change are the "dual eligi-
bles."
"There's just so many lev-
els and facets to the confu-
sion," she says with a laugh of
bewilderment. "But I think the
people who are most confused
are the dual eligibles, the peo-
ple who have Medicare and
Medicaid.
"Most people who have
been put on it were people

who were on Medicaid and
were paying zero for their pre-
scriptions," she says. "Now
they're paying $2 or $5 for
their prescriptions; of course
they're not going to have a
positive attitude about it."
Some dual eligibles' pre-
scriptions are not being filled.
"Dual eligibles are finding
problems within the formula-
ry," she says.
The formulary is the list of
drugs covered within a com-
pany's plan.
Typically, most formularies
have three tiers; in each tier the
co-pay increases. Tier one is
designated for generic drugs;
tier two is typically a compa-
ny's preferred drug; and tier
three drugs are more expen-
sive, non-preferred drugs.
For example, AARP's tier
one's co-pay is $5 for a pre-
scription; tier two is $28; and
tier three is $56.
"There are a lot of dual eli-
gibles who apparently
thought that it wasn't going to
happen or that it didn't really
mater and now we're trying to
fill, their prescriptions and we
can't," Richard says.

"D" as in "Difficult"
On Wednesday, the Senior
Circle group at the North
Okaloosa Medical Center held
a "Medicare Q and A" session
for its members.
About 28 people came and
expressed their concerns and
confusion over the changes.

audience.

of Elder Affairs. Its purpose is
to educate volunteers, who in
turn educate the public about
the Medicare changes.
Geiser, who is the area
coordinator for Escambia,
Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and
Walton Counties, says that he
and the 15 other volunteers for
the four-county area have
been overwhelmed. Okaloosa
county has four volunteers,
including Geiser, who lives in
Niceville.
"We've been extremely
busy," he says with a sigh.
"We have been inundated. I've
got calls now that are waiting
to be made."
Initially, SHINE was creat-
ed so seniors could call and
make an appointment with a
representative.
"Most of the seniors just
don't understand it," Geiser
says. "It's too voluminous,
there's too many choices.
That's what we're trying to do,
straighten them out and give
them guidance."
Richard doesn't know any-
one who. has met with a
SHINE volunteer.
"I gave SHINE's number to
people," she says. "Everyone
has come back to me and said
that they left their informa-
tion, and then days or even
weeks later they got a call back
saying that someone would
call and schedule a time to
meet with them. No one that I
know actually had someone
come to theip home."

Jordan's father was

When he retired he was able to

ance policy that now covers
his wife's medications.
"If you currently have cred-

has been to several seminars
that pertain to the changes.
"If you already have cred-

if at a later date you drop that
coverage you can sign up with

Like many others with

"Her actual out of pocket

he says. "It's cheaper than if I

Problems were anticipated,
Richard says. She thinks that
the program will eventually
come around and the initial
frustrations will subside.
"The last update I saw is
that there were 5.5 million
people added to the new pre-

"You can't put five and a half

Children In Crisis, Inc. opens first office


Children In Crisis, Inc.,
(CIC), cut the ribbon on its
first office last week.
According to Ken Hair,
Executive Director, CIC,
"This is a milestone for our
organization and a tangible
message that we're making
progress in our mission to
provide homes and establish
hope for our children in cri-
sis."
Temporary use of the spa-
cious office building is being
donated. The new sign was
courtesy Ron and Debbie
Culbreth, SigriLink
Communications.
The new CIC office will be


the temporary headquarters
until the Children's
Neighborhood is built in
2006. The Neighborhood
will include four group
homes, a children's emer-
gency shelter, a recreation
building and a neighborhood
center for support services
for community children.
The CIC is a non-profit,
charitable organization made
up of caring people working
hard to secure a solution to
the instability experienced by
the children in Okaloosa and
Walton Counties.
Today in Okaloosa and
Walton Counties, there is a


critical shortage of foster
homes. This shortage has
lead to the frequent separa-
tion of siblings and the fre-
quent moving of abused and
neglected children from one
home to another, even out-
side local counties.
The CIC board and advi-
sors include staff specialist
from the Department of
Children and Families, foster
parents, former foster chil-
dren, community profession-
als and civic leaders. This is
a community problem that
needs to be solved by the
community, according to
Hair.

Today in Okaloosa and
Walton Counties there is a
critical shortage of foster
homes. This has lead to the
frequent separation of sib-
lings and the frequent mov-


ing of abused and neglected
children from one home to
another, even outside local
counties.
Children In Crisis, Inc.
was formed as a nonprofit
organization to provide a
better solution, a communi-
ty solution. The CIC board
and advisors include staff
specialist from the
Department of Children
and Families, foster parents,
former foster children, com-
munity professionals and
civic leaders. This is a com-
munity problem that needs
to be solved by the commu-
nity.

Negligent homicide-Is God guilty?


Sunday |

View 1


This question is not
posed to be cute.
The very question
itself would border on
blasphemy, if I did not ask
it to point to a truth that
glorifies our loving and
almighty God. It is a ques-
tion that is on the mind of
many people today, espe-
cially the friends and rela-
tives of twelve who died
this week in a West
Virginia mine. One rela-
tive, after the jubilation of
the good news turned to
horror and grief when the
bad news came, said, "We
are Christian people, but I
am wondering if there
even is a God."
Of course, people who
are in grieving or in shock
sometimes say wild and
crazy things. Most of us
can make allowances for
such sentiments at such a


time, but they are
usually thought,
not said before a
national or even
international
audience. I am
k-troubled by the
AMMITD preface, "We are
Christian peo-
ple..." In a twist to what
our mothers taught us, "If
you can't say anything
good about God, don't say
anything at all." And I
might add, for Christians,
"Lay down until the feel-
ing passes, and it will, as
God the Holy Spirit minis-
ters to your grieving soul."
Sometimes people do act
and speak as if God were
guilty of negligent homi-
cide-just allowing some-
one to die, while he could
have been rescued and
saved. Hidden in this
thought or statement is the
idea that God just doesn't
care, or that He is just not
in the mood to save any-
body. One man even
argued in a book, When
Bad Things Happen to
Good People, that God is
supposed to be all-loving
and all-powerful, but, if

bad things happen to good
people, then you and I
must make a choice,
because God can't be both.
His choice was that God
was all-loving, but not all-
powerful-powerful, but
not all powerful. The
author lost me as soon as I
read that. I didn't want
my mind taken up with
that false doctrine, that
insult to the character of
God. I closed the book in
the first chapter and even
threw it in the trashcan,
not wanting any other,
maybe less discerning, per-
son to read it and be
tempted with that evil
premise.
One may say that a per-
son who is in grief does
not need to hear doctrine.
That it would be an inap-
propriate time. I beg to
differ. It is the very time
one most definitely needs
Bible doctrinet-f.is-the
very time that we iieed to
have the truth of God rein-
forced in our minds. It is
the Devil's most active
time. He doesn't have to
shout to us; all he has to do
is whisper. He whispers,
"Isn't God supposed to
love you? Where was God,
when you needed Him?
Where is God now? Is
there really a God?" A
strong Voice, though, will,


at the same time, be
reminding you of Bible
truth. One may hear the
voice of the Holy Spirit, if
he or she is listening: "We
have not an high priest
(speaking of Jesus) who
cannot be touched with the
feeling of our infirmi-
ties..." (Heb 4:15a)
Now, I am not writing to
people in West Virginia. I
am writing to you. A sad
or tragic thing will, if it has
not already, happen to you
and to me. I don't want to
run from God at that time,
and I sure don't want to
accuse Him of negligent
homicide. No, I want, in
that day, to be his little,
hurt boy, who runs to Him
and cries and allows Him
to hug and hold me close.
This is the experience that
all those precious folks in
West Virginia need right
now. One man, inter-
viewed during the time
when all thought the min-
ers had been found alive,
in his rejoicing said, "God
is good," but then he
added, "but He would still
be good, if they had all
been found dead." Spoken
like a Christian who knows
his Bible!

Crestview
Coach: Chip Weems (second
season)
2004-2005 results: Winless in
duals; advanced some lifters to sec-
tional final

Outlook
Baker has a brand new program. Crestview
more or less has a brand new team. Only one of
the 12 lifters on the 2005-06 roster Desirae
Wadsworth competed last winter. "It's basically
a learning experience for most of them," Weems
said. Weems rearranged the Dawgs' schedule to
make sure his athletes would have enough to time
to prepare for the meets properly, and hopes they
get some good experience this season.

Desirae Wadsworth's
breakdown
What is the most fun part of weightlifting?:
"Competing against everybody else and getting to
see different places."
What is the hardest part of weightlifting?: "It
takes a lot of work to do it, but it's good in the end.
It helps us stay fit."
What are your goals for the season?: "We
have a little bit less girls than last year. We were
supposed to have more. But we're still hoping to
get higher scores and do better than we did last
year
How has weightlifting most helped you?: "It
helps me stay fit and I get to see some of my
friends in here after school."

Baker
Coach: David Oglesby (first sea-
son)" .
2004-05 results: Did not field a
team

Outlook
No one knows quite what to expect in Baker's
first girls weightlifting season. The Gator roster
does have encouraging numbers 18 girls
answered callouts in November and many of the
school's top athletes. "The first goal is to get girls
out," Oglesby said. "To have 18 girls in the first year
is as many as some big schools, so that is a great
accomplishment." Baker's schedule consists of
meets against larger schools, and the Gators will try
to pull a few shockers by the end of the season.

Baker seniors' breakdown
What is the most fun part of weightlifting?:
"Getting to know the coaches," Bonnie Bodine
said. "And getting a chance to be the first seniors
at Baker to do weightlifting."
What is, the hardest part of weightlifting?:
"Being sore all of the time," Kathy Phillips said. "It
has gotten better. The first day, I was in terrible pain.",
What are your goals for the season?: "Just to
get stronger," Britney Summerlin said. "This is the
first year we've done this, so we don't have any past
standards to surpass. Just try to get stronger."
How has weightlifting most helped you?: "I
am stronger," Bonnie Jackson said. "Hopefully I'll
be able to run faster and throw harder during sot-
ball season."

LIFT, from page 12

meets
"Coach Oglesby said it

Jackson, who won her weight
class against Woodham.
"Softball and volleyball are
the two other sports, and this
would be the only one I
ouniill cstanld out on mv Awn


so I thought it would be dif-
ferent."
Most of the lifters admit-
ted having some second
thoughts after the first few
painful days of practice,
including soreness in mus-
des they didn't realize exist-
ed. Most stuck it out, and the
work got easier.
"Every day is a challenge
since we haven't lifted that
much," said senior Bonnie


Bodine, who also won her
weight class against
Woodham. "It's not as hard
.as when .we fir., .tedi e:t
was terrible." ... .
Baker football coach and
athletic director Bob Kellogg
reinstated the boys
weightlifting program and
added the girls counterpart
to give Gator athletes a
sense of purpose to their off-
season workouts.
Many of the Baker lifters
say they would spend the
winter in the weight room
anyway. Competing on a
team gives them a chance to
measure their progress.
"Especially for the seniors,
since we don't have to do this
(lift) if we don't want to,"
senior Kathy Phillips said.
"But we are here, and actual-


ly having meets drives us to
do this."
The Gator seniors say they

ge -ttig' stn'og'erAll thei'WA
to having a presence at the
FHSAA state meet.
They say they already
notice their progress in the
weight room carrying over to
other activities.
"I thought it would help
me be in better shape when
softball season rolled
around," said senior Britney
Summerlin, who practices
with the team but cannot
compete in meets because of
an injury.
"I am faster (pitching
speed) than I was when I first
started last year when I was-
n't lifting weights, so that
helped me."

points. "He expects a lot out
of me, and I just hadn't been
doing it lately. I just went out
there and got mad and start-
ed playing well.
"Getting mad is the key.
That is what (Humphrey)
tells me."
Hayes got loose for 13 of
his 17 points in the third quar-
ter as CHS put the game away.
Hayes scored 11 of the Dawgs'
first 15 points in the period,
running the floor for layups
and draining a 3-pointer.
Crestview's efforts in the third


quarter pushed a 30-19 half-
time lead to a 58-29 cushion.
"We were able to get out
and run a bit and get some
easy baskets and fast break
points," Hayes said. "We can
do a lot of things if we keep
getting better."
Crestview hopes home
court advantage propels it to
a successful final month of
the season. Baker coach Mike
Martello hopes tough road
games like Thursday help his
young team get ready for the
postseason.


"When we play Crestvifw
it's a fun rivalry," Scud
Martello, whose team fell -to'
1-9. "When we step into our
district tournament, it's.: the
same type of environment
we're going to see. I think
this gets them ready." *
The Gators should get a
boost with the expected return
of Blake Williams, a junior
frontliner. Williams averaged
19.2 points in 11 games as a
sophomore last season.
Blake Pryor led Baker on
Thursday with nine points.

Baker girls getting a lift


- Weightlifting
individual first place finishes
against the Titans.
"I couldn't have expected
it to go any better," Baker
coach David Oglesby said.
"They are working hard and
gaining confidence, and con-
fidence is the biggest thing.
The big eyes I saw in the first
meet are gone."
Oglesby initially won-
dered how he would fill his
roster when he agreed to
coach Baker's first girls
weightlifting team this win-
ter.
Oglesby didn't know if he
could find enough girls for
another winter varsity sport

Crestview's boys basketball play-
ers almost forgot how they looked in
their home uniforms.
The Bulldogs played nine of their
first 12 games on the road, including
a stretch of 26 days without a home
game starting Dec. 8.
"It seemed like forever," senior
guard Trey Hayes said. "We were
never here. We never put on the
white jerseys."
The Dawgs returned to their home
court this week and started a stretch
of eight homes games in their last 13
regular season contests with a pair of
impressive victories.
Crestview knocked off District 1-
5A leader Choctawhatchee 56-49 on
Tuesday. The Bulldogs (6-8, 1-4)
showed no signs of a letdown two
nights later in a 76-33 win against
Baker.
"For some reason, we shoot better
here, the kids run the floor a bit bet-
ter here, and we get good crowds,"
CHS coach Brian Humphrey said.
"The kids have looked at the sched-
ule and talked about it, and they do
like playing at home."

Choctawhatchee came to
Crestview riding high after winning
its own 16-team Playground
Shootout. The Bulldogs finished
sixth in the same tournament.
Crestview brought the Indians
back to earth by controlling the
tempo from start to finish and mak-
ing key free throws down the
stretch.
/'We shot when we wanted to,
where w anted to, arid'hoW we
wanted to," Humphrey said. "That
was the difference. If we play our
game, we'll always be in the game."
The Dawgs committed just 10
turnovers against the Indians. Kelii
Peters made 11 of 12 free throws in
the final period on his way to 23
points.
"We played big at home," Peters
said. "These are the games you look
forward to. It's a good feeling when
you've got the home crowd behind
you. You get more momentum."
Cameron McNair got the Dawgs
off to a fast start Thursday against
Baker. Crestview emphasized giving
McNair touches in the post in the
early going. He responded with eight
of the Dawgs' first 12 points to give
CHS a lead that kept growing.
"Coach Humphrey told me just to
go out and play," said McNair, who
finished with a season-high 13
