FDLE plays key role in murder case


* The Pensacola Regional
Operations Center is
currently working on 2,106
cases, including the murder
of Melissa Lynn Howard.

Adam Ziglar
!News Bulletin Reporter
The forensic evidence from the
Melissa Lynn Howard murder case
is just one of 2,106 pending cases
that are under the microscope at
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's Regional
Operations Center in Pensacola.
The office serves a 10-county
region, from Escambia to Gulf
County.
All forensic evidence has been
turned over to the FDLE, accord-
ing to police investigator John
Cook.
While the days trickle from the
time Howard was murdered on
Jan. 6, to the time the Crestview
Police Department anticipates an
arrest, the forensic scientists at the
FDLE continue to decode the mys-
terious patterns of evidence that
lay hidden from the human eye.
FDLE spokeswoman Karen
Mason took the News Bulletin on a
virtual tour of the department, and
helped explain its role in the
Howar f ase and dispelled
some of-the common TV-land mis-
conceptions of the crime scene
investigations world.
"Unlike an episode of CSI, we
do not solve cases in half an hour,"
Mason said, half jokingly. "What
readers might be surprised to learn
is that, on average, results from
DNA can take 111 days. This is a
legislatively mandated goal for our
DNA services."
On Jan. 24, Crestview police
investigator John Cook explained
that, while the forensic evidence is
important, the case does not solely
hinge on its return.
"It's just one piece of the puz-

zle," he said, when asked about the
relevance of the forensic evidence.
An arrest could be made prior
to receiving the evidence, which,
in turn, could be used to build a
state attorney's case.
More than 80 employees work
for the regional FDLE office, and
36 of those work in the laboratory
under several disciplines.
The department has three main
departments. The first, the
latent/photo/crime scene divi-


sion, staffs a crime lab analyst
supervisor, three senior crime lab
analysts, five crime lab analysts
and five forensic technicians.
The second discipline is the
chemistry/firearms division; and
the last is the biology/evidence
division. These divisions have
multiple crime scene analysts,
forensic technicians and crime lab
technicians.
"Using state-of-the-art equip-
ment and scientific techniques,


FDLE provides professional exam-

Area Chamber supports bypass study


Ken Nielsen/The News Bulletin
Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce president Craig Shaw signs a resolu-
tion Thursday morning supporting a bypass study by the Florida Turnpike
Enterpise, as Chamber president-elect Tim Bryant looks on.


Cal Zethmayr
News Bulletin Correspondent

Crestview Area Chamber of
Commerce president Craig Shaw
signed a resolution supporting a
Crestview area bypass as Tim
Bryant, Chamber president-elect,
looked on Thursday morning at the
chamber offices.
The resolution urges the City of
Crestview, the Okaloosa County
Board of Commissioners and the
Okaloosa-Walton Transportation
Organization to request that the
Florida Department of
Transportation and the Florida
Turnpike Enterprise immediately
start conducting an in-depth eco-
nomic feasibility study to deter-
mine the needs for a Crestview area
bypass. The resolution was adopt-
ed unanimously by the Chamber
Board of Directors.
The Chamber Governmental


Issues Committee had prepared the
resolution and recommended its
adoption to the chamber officers
earlier this week.
-The Governmental Issues
Committee had revived interest in
the Crestview Area Bypass when
they hosted a meeting in November
with Representatives Ray Sansom,
Don Brown and Greg Evers, who
represent most of Okaloosa County.
They wanted to discuss the possi-
bility of creating a North Okaloosa
County Transportation Authority
by passing a local bill in the 2006
session of the Florida Legislature.
The transportation authority con-
cept was used to create the Mid Bay
Bridge, and another authority cre-
ated by the Legislature for the Fort
Walton Beach area is pursuing a
new bridge to handle traffic on
Highway 98 to Okaloosa Island.
The District Secretary of the
Florida Department of


Transportation, Ed Prescott, attend-
ed a meeting of city officials and
chamber members at the Crestview
City Council chambers in
December. Mr. Prescott brought a
representative of the Florida
Turnpike Enterprise to that meeting
to make a presentation. Prescott
pointed out that if a local trans-
portation authority was created,
the new authority would have to
borrow operating funds from a
revolving trust fund the FDOT has.
Then either the City of Crestviewv;
the Okaloosa County
Commissioners or both govern-
ments would have to agree to pay
back any funds borrowed if the
authority completed studies but
did not actually build a toll facility.
Prescott said that the purpose of a
transportation authority should be
to generate revenue from the new

homicide cases usually take priori-
ty," she said. "This is especially
true if there is a possibility that
other people could be harmed by
the same suspect."
In the past, Crestview police
could not say if the crime was an
isolated event, or a random act of
terror. They will also not say if they
have the weapon used to kill
Howard, or the type of weapon
used. It is not known if any
weapons have been turned over .to
the FDLE.

PAfUGE 2-


First Assembly


lights up with


digital beacon


Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter

Crestview has a new bea-
con of light greeting
motorists as they commute
on Ferdon Boulevard.
. It's a 6 X 10-foot color dig-
ital video screen, placed 33
feet above the parking lot of
the First Assembly of God
Church.
The digital display of life,
hope and information, is just
the prelude to the metamor-
phous that the church is
going to experience during
the next twelve months.
"It's really the sign of the
beginning of what's about to
happen here at the church,"
said First Assembly of God
pastor Mark English, refer-
ring to the $4.2 million
facelift of the sanctuary's
exterior and the construction
of a new family life center.
"This display will allow
us to publicize the schedule
of our church services and
programs, in addition to
weekly church and commu-
nity announcements," said
English. "Every week you'll
be able to see what my teach-
ing is going to be on that next
Sunday."
The sign matches the
architecture of the church's
new look.


Don't look for advertise-
ments or the schedule of the
next local beauty pageant,
but English did say that
important community infor-
mation could be displayed in
times of emergencies.
"The great thing is that if
there is an emergency, severe
weather, hurricane, informa-
tion or something the city
needs to get out to the public
in a hurry, we can immedi-
ately put that up on the dis-
play," English said.
Currently any video sig-
nal can be uploaded to the
display. English hopes to
have the capability to display
live video in time for their
annual Fourth of July
Celebration.
"Who knows, you may
even see our Sunday morn-
ing service live on the screen
one day," smiled English.
English said he and his
congregation marveled
Wednesday evening when
the sign was turned on for
the first time.
"It was interesting how
the traffic just slowed down
as it passed in front of the
church and admired the
sign."
The congregation wanted
a sign that was going to be a
reflection of the state-of-the-
art worship center they were

First Assembly of God Pastor, Mark English is leading his con-

Century. This new digital display in front of the church is the

preparing for the communi-
ty.
"It's a gift to the commu-
nity," explained English.
"Everything about our
church is geared towards
making a difference in our
community. We live in a


video culture, people
remember what they see as
much as what they hear."


Steve Andrews
Managing Editor

The Recreational
Outreach Center at Central
Baptist Church is a great
venue to host athletic events,
group gatherings, and even
misplaced hurricane victims.
But, next weekend, the
ROC will be rocking with a
new gig Super Bowl XL.
Although the game itself
will be played in Detroit,
Central's pastor, Robert
Cates, plans to provide the
local public with a whole-
some, alcohol-free place to
watch the game and interact
with others.
"We're just excited," Cates
said. "It will be kind of laid
back. It's just a good time to
come out and have fun."
Cates even promised with
a chuckle not to do any
preaching during the Super
Bowl party.
"And we're not even
going to take up an offering,
if you can believe that," he
said with a grin. "Not often
does a Baptist church not.
take up an offering."
The event is planned to
kick off at 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 5
with a tailgate party and chili
cook-off in the parking lot.
Contestants should bring
their homemade chili from
home to be judged. Prizes
will be awarded to the win-

'The game between the
Pittsburgh Steelers and
Seattle Seahawks will then
be aired live inside the ROC
on its giant movie screen,
lined with bleachers.
"There is no charge for
any of it," Cates said.
"Everyone is invited to just
come out and have a good
time."
The church will furnish
hotdogs, popcorn, lemonade
and hot wings.
Door prizes, donated by
area businesses, will be
given out throughout the
game. The Crestview High

cheerleaders in adding to the
spirit.
There will also be an

They can still come have

Four prefiled candidates set sights on filling Gaetz' shoes


Adam Ziglar
News Bulletin Reporter

With the 2006 primary election
still more than seven months away,
the four current profiled candidates
running for superintendent of
Okaloosa County schools are
already hitting the campaign trail.
The four candidates are: John
Hughes, Republican; William
Charles Lynch, Democrat; Robert
McEachem, Republican; and Alexis
Tibbetts, Republican.
Each candidate sounds off on key
issues that face north Okaloosa
County, and describe how they
would serve local school children
and parents if elected as the next
superintendent.

John Hughes
Hughes has degrees in business
administration and management.
"I've been involved in education
all my life in one way or another,"
he said.
Hughes believes that the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
(FCAT) is ineffective and useless as
a standardized platform to test stu-
d, ent academic achievement.
"We've got 30 states that have
IF come out against it and two states
have turned down federal funding
because of this," he said.
Hughes hopes to tackle the drug
problems in schools.
"We have 18 percent of our stu-
dents on psychiatric drugs, primari-
ly Ritalin," he said. "There is no
such thing as ADD (attention deficit
disorder)."
Hughes also said that the nation
is plagued with a 27 percent
dropout rate and 50 percent of the
country's students are taking street
drugs.
S' "Ibelieve it's our fault," he said.
S"What 'we are doing to o.r children
is criminal, it's academic child
abuse."
Hughes doesn't believe that the
state mandated class size amend-
ment that is substantially decreasing
class sizes across the state will work.
In the fall, Florida will need an
estimated 30,000 teachers to keep
up with an increase in teacher retire-
ments, and the impending state-
wide-growth. '. ,

"That amendment was on the
same ballot with the pregnant pig
amendment," he said. "That's a
joke. We shouldn't be voting on
either of those things."
Hughes is a proponent of the
Community High School Institute
for Career Education Institute.
"We need to stop holding back
the .educational achievement of our
students," he said, when asked
about the effectiveness of the
CHOICE school.
When asked what separates him
from the other candidates, Hughes
summed up his qualifications in his
management experience.
"I'm management, they're not,"
he said, referring to the other three
candidates. "Don Gaetz has got a
management background, not edu-

When asked about how the class
size reduction amendment will
affect the north Okaloosa County,
Lynch said that he believes the
reduction of class size has to be near
the top of a superintendent's priori-
ty list.
Though he has never been elect-
ed, Lynch has run for superinten-
dent twice 'and for school board rep-
resentative twice.
"I have approximately 20 years
experience in data processing, both
in marketing and running a com-
puter consulting institute," he said.,
Currently, Lynch is a substitute
teacher in the south part of the
county.

His primary goals include "con-

"Particularly in the north end,
we've got to build some schools,"
he said. "It's incumbent that we
have to do some work to make sure
that we get the kids some services
up there."
McEachern believes that the Base
Realignment and Closure (BRAC)
changes will affect the Crestview
area by adding more students to
schools that are already strapped
for space.
"We're going to have to plan
effectively and contain cost for the
influx of the new students coming
in as far as the BRAC relocation," he
said. "More than anything else, we
have to preserve our high academic
standing, and at the same time
explore other options for more
choices and more opportunities for
our students."
McEachern also believes that the
school system has to conservatively
manage the taxpayers' dollars.
"We have to reduce overhead
and keep the teachers' salaries com-
petitive," he said. "We pay teachers
very well; we need to be able to
recruit new teachers and pay them
well.
"Students will always be first in

years to come.
"I believe that my years in educa-
tion, my leadership, my ability to
manage finances I handle a $14
million budget, I run a school with
163 people those things will help
me prove to be the qualified candi-
date," she said.
Tibbetts has been a teacher, a
guidance counselor, an. assistant
principal and a principal.
"Over the nqxt few years, our
county is going to go through
tremendous growth," she said.
"Academically, while we're in this
period of education reform we need
a superintendent that has a strong
background in academic success."
Tibbetts' primary goals include
managing resources effectively to
promote student achievement.
Retaining highly qualified teach-
ers will be a challenge when the
new superintendent faces the class
size reduction impacts, she said.
"When considering class size
reduction, we need a program in
place to recruit and retain highly
qualified teachers because when
you reduce class size you increase
the number of teachers that you
need," she said.
"We have to be standing there at
the college and university doors
when they graduate and make sure
that we get them to come to
Okaloosa County."
She also addressed school con-
struction issues in the Crestview
area.
"We have to make sure that we
have new schools to accommodate
the growth in Crestview," she said.

average..
Beginning in 2008, no
kindergarten through third
grade class can exceed 18
students; no fourth through
eighth grade class can
exceed 22 students; no high
school class can exceed 25
students.
What that means: in
February (2008), when
another second grader
moves to town the second
grade classes in his school
will have to split, a new
teacher will have to be
hired, and a new teaching
space will have to be found
in the middle of the year;
it's absolutely impractical,
and it will be extremely dif-
ficult for the next superin-
tendent.
Parenthetically, as senator
from Northwest Florida, I
hope to be able to help mod-
ify the class size amendment
to keep low class sizes, but
to eliminate the impracticali-
'ties of a rigid limit on each
individual class.

AZ: What local chal-
lenges will the next super-
intendent face?
DG: Locally, we are likely
to have thousands of mili-
tary families moving into
our area, and probably a
large number of them mov-
ing into the Crestview com-
munity as a result of the
BRAC process. So the
growth of the enrollment,
particularly in the north end
of the county, will be a chal-
lenge.

AZ: What about addi-
tional school sites?
DG: We've closed on
land, a 30-acre site seven
miles east of the Crestview
Courthouse in this new
community that will be
developed out there. That
school site is secured.
I hope to leave office hav-
ing purchased nr iast two,
maybe three new school
sites in north Okaloosa
County.


I believe that over the
next five to 10 years, the
next superintendent of
schools may have to build
two or three new schools in
the Crestview area. That's a
challenge.
We're actively negotiating
to acquire one or two addi-
tional school sites in the
Crestview area because I
want the next superinten-
dent and school board to
have the land available to
build new schools as the
school age population grows
as a result of BRAC, and as a
result of the ongoing growth
of the Crestview area.

AZ: Where does
Okaloosa County rank in
the state as far as teachers
salaries are concerned?
DG: We are seventh out
of 67 counties in teacher pay.
We pay our teachers more
than any other county in
Northwest Florida. The only
other counties that pay more
than we do are counties that
receive substantially more in
funding than we do.
Okaloosa County receives
$170 per student less than
the state average in funding,
but we pay our teachers far
more than the state average
in compensation.

AZ: For those who are
unaware, what are your
future plans?
DG: If the voters agree,
I'll be in the Florida Senate
on election day, Nov. 7, 2006.
I'm still working full time as
superintendent of schools,
but on the weekends and in
the evenings I'm campaign-
ing. I've already begun
walking neighborhoods,
knocking on doors in
Pensacola. The senate dis-
trict stretches all the way
from Pensacola to Panama
City, strctchdii6 five counties.
At the moment, I'm
unopposed, but there is cer-
tainly the possibility that I'll
have one or more opponents
running against me.


Don Gaetz has been
Okaloosa County's
superintendent of schools
since 2000.

AZ: What advice would
you give the future superin-
tendent?
DG: I'm not sure my suc-
cessor wants or needs my
advice, but I believe the peo-
ple of Okaloosa County
have gotten used to being
the best in the state academi-
cally.
My belief is that the vot-
ers will hold all candidates
to a high test. I believe the
voters will expect the next
superintendent to not just
equal the accomplishments
of this administration, but to
do much, much better.
The foundation for high
performance has been effec-
tively laid by the school
board, and by teachers and
principals.
There is every reason to
expect that the next superin-
tendent and the next admin-
istration will achieve much
better results than my
administration has achieved.
I believe that the voters
expect that level of perfor-
mance.
My political advice
would be knock on many,
many doors and be available
,und accessible to parents
and teachers. Don't water
down the high performance
standards that have made us
the best in the state. Do bet-
ter than Don Gaetz.

A message

from Craig
Craig Shaw
Crestview Area
Chamber of Commerce President


Don't know whether to
sing Happy Birthday or
Happy Anniversary,
either way Happy 50th to our
Chamber of Commerce and a
* very Happy 50th to all of the
folks that have been part of
our history and especially a
* part of making my year so


very special.
You know my dad told me
last July, when my year start-
ed, not to delay doing things
because the year flies by
rather quickly. Well, I've only
got four months left after this
and most of that our
President-Elect, Mr. Tim


Bryant will be handling. So I
guess my dad was
right... again.
Originally I had hoped to
have a big celebration honor-
ing our fifty years this month.
But, as you all very well
know we've got so many
things going on over the next
four months that I just didn't
think it was fair to burden
our folks with more.
Tim Bryant has been
appointed to set up a nomi-
nating committee in February
for officers and board mem-
bers. The Board has to vote
on that in March and March
is also our Blackwater,
Bluegrass and Bar B-Que


Cookoff (Triple B), which has
changed by the way this year
to a more community event
with more family, food and
fun. Last year's Triple B con-
centrated on bringing in
cookers from all over who
compete nation wide. This
year the focus will be on
groups, businesses and orga-
nization locally with a lot
more family and kid things to
do, so mark your calendar for
March 10th and the 11th 2006.
Then in April Tim has to
head up a Budget Committee
to formulate a new budget for
his year as President and we
also have to bring to the
membership, via the FOCUS


and the Membership
Breakfast in April the new
slate of candidates for next
year and through 2009.
The month of May means
we have to arrange for a
Board Retreat which is a very
important opportunity for
our new officers and directors
to plan for future years and at
the same time continue
progress on the construction
of the new building. June is
then consumed with planning
for and holding the Annual
Installation of Officers and
Awards.
So with all that to get done
for the next four months we,
the Board and I, felt it's prob-


ably best to hold our
Anniversary Celebration at
our annual banquet, since we
have to plan for a party any-
way it might as well be then.
Plus, since the Ambassadors
were the ones I tasked to han-
dle the 50th Celebration I felt
that this would allow them
more time to plan and pre-
pare.
As you can very well see
we have a very busy few
months ahead of us and I
hope you will be a very big
part of all the activities.
Once again I wish you all,
past and present members, a
very Happy 50th year of our
Chamber of Commerce!

First, it's obvious, our found-
ing chamber fathers, I believe,
had that enthusiasm and the
"best interests of the commu-
nity" when they created our
chamber. Secondly, there is
no doubt in my mind that the
folks that have a leadership
role, folks who are involved
and the folks that are our
members of today have as
their interest a strong desire
to help our "city grow and
prosper, so that their business
may grow and prosper."
That in a nut shell, more
than any other reason, is why
our chamber has stayed the
course for fifty years and that
is why our chamber is the
most progressive and pros-
perous business oriented
organization and in no small
part is why our community
has prospered and continues
to prosper more now than
ever before. This is why you

"We're lucky to have these
advanced capabilities," Mason
said. "But it does take time to thor-
oughly examine every piece of evi-
dence. We don't want to rush any-
thing."
The FDLE is currently operating
in a small compound of four
portable buildings located in a


parking lot adjacent to the
Department of Juvenile Justice.
Its main building, located on
Palafox Street in downtown
Pensacola, was nearly destroyed
by Hurricane Ivan in 2004. Mason
said that the center plans to move
back in its main building by mid-
February.


When asked if the displacement
has slowed the department, or
made it more difficult to handle
cases like the local murder, Mason
said the department has not
neglected its state mandated
duties.
"Working out of temporary
quarters has been a challenge to


our staff," she said. "However, we
have continued to meet our legisla-
tively mandated goals."
To learn more about the FDLE,
visit www.fdle.stat.fl.us.
Anybody with information
about the murder case is encour-
aged to call the Crestview Police
Department at 682-2130, Ext. 117.

Wishing you a lovely spring garden this year


Shari Farrell
Okaloosa County Master
Gardener
Special to the Bulletin

Now that February is
near we can finally be think-
ing about spring, the lovely
softair and watching for the
first green shoots of the
perennials we planted last
year. Tree and shrub mov-
ing should be finished
although .h.orr.ectnan-
agemient fewly purchased
plants in pots can still be
planted. Shrub roses
should be pruned this
month.
New spring annuals are
arriving at the garden cen-
ters that will do well until
the heat of summer melts
them like butter. It is far too
early to put out the tender
tropical plants seen in spme
garden centers, if purchased
now they must be carefully
protected and not set out in
the garden until late spring.
Also available are cool sea-
son vegetables of many vari-
eties that can be planted and
enjoyed in our gardens,
almost all will produce
abundantly until about May.
Purchasing transplants is
desirable as it gets the gar-
den off to a faster start and
provides us with faster
results. Because radish seeds
germinate quickly and are
large enough to handle, they
are fun for children to plant
and tend. Snap beans also
germinate quickly, but plant-
ing too soon will expose
their tender shoots to the
cold. and must wait until
mid-March after the last
killing frost is expected.
Tomatoes, cucumbers, mel-
ons, squash, okra, peppers
and eggplant are among the
warm season plants that
must wait for warmer tem-
peratures.
Another available item
right now are the many
brands of weed and feed
products touted to make our

"lawns the most beautiful in
the neighborhood!"
University of Florida
Research has shown this not
to be the case. Applying the
combination this time of
year is not only a waste of
time and money, it doesn't
achieve the desired results.
The lawngrasses grown in
our area are what is termed
warm season grasses. They
need the warmer tempera-
tures to green up and start
them actively growing. To
feed them when the soil is
. still cold and the chance of a
killing frost on any new
growth is the reverse of
what the homeowner wants
to achieve. An application
this month of a pre-emer-
gent summer weed killer is
desirable and will help con-
trol the germination of over
wintering annual weed
seeds in our lawns. This one
application will not do the
entire job however; spot
treating throughout the
summer is needed for peren-
nial weeds that will appear
as the temperatures warm.
It can take a year or more of


attention to eradicate the
perennial weeds. Those
seen now are winter weeds
that should have been con-
trolled last October with pre-
emergent. Just as when pur-
chasing any chemical prod-
uct, we must be sure it is
appropriate for the lawn-
grass and that we follow the
instructions on the container
or bag precisely. Injuries not
only to the plants, but conta-
mination and run-off must
be considered. Pre-pmer-
gent renders.the soil inca-
pable of supporting the ger-
mination of seed, so be care-
ful to not apply it in beds
where self seeding annuals


or seeds to be planted are
desired later this spring. A
granule product applied
with a drop spreader is the
recommended method of
distribution.
Watering the home garden
is a task many tend to forget
during the winter. The roots
of all perennial plants contin-
ue to develop throughout the
season and need adequate '
moisture to survive. Not
only does this help ensure
survival of the cold, it means
a faster recovery and a
healthier lawn and shrub bed
next summer. Lawns should
still be receiving a weekly
combination of rain and irri-
gation totaling one half to
three quarters inch. If the
irrigation system has been
shut down for the winter and
rain is not sufficient, applica-
tion with a hose end sprin-
kler is necessary. The roots
of the plants are still alive
even though the lawn is
brown and appears dead.
Wishing you a lovely
Spring Garden!

Truth


1 Samuel
12.24 Only
fear the
LORD, and
serve him in
truth with all
your heart:
for consider
M i c h a el how great
Green, Jr. is things he
pastor of Palm hath done for
C h a p e l o
Primitive you.
Baptist
Church in What is
Crestview, FL. truth, and
where is it
found?
Humanism, a prevalent phi-
losophy today, tries to tell
us that there is no absolute
truth; that it is up to each
individual to determine his
or her own truth. This
thinking has led to the
degradation of morality in
our culture. From the high-
est governmental offices, we
have witnessed controver-
sies that brazenly mock
truth and morality.
Politicians have clouded the
truth for their own personal
benefit. Even families have
been compromised, and
many are suffering because


parents have bought into
the idea that children
should be allowed to form
their own ideas about truth,
without mom and dad
imposing their beliefs of
right and wrong.
From the national to the
local level, we have seen
how a lack of regard for the
truth affects every aspect of
our society. It seems that
every time we read the
paper or watch the news, a
new political scandal is
uncovered, schools are hav-
ing more discipline prob-
lems than ever, and major
crimes amongst juveniles
are rising at an alarming
rate. These are only a few of
the numerous symptoms of
a greater problem; the lack
of absolute truth.
Unfortunately, a disregard
for the truth has even
entered into many of
today's churches. The
church was established by
God to change society
through the message of
truth, but in many cases,
society has instead changed
the church. Truth has been
sacrificed for the sake of


popularity and mass appeal
in many places. However,
the Bible elevates truth
above everything else.
In I Samuel we discover
that the nation of Israel was
facing a similar crisis. Israel
began as a nation that was
ruled and governed by God
exclusively. He used various
men and women to serve as
.His mouthpiece periodical-
ly, but God was their King.
He had blessed them to
come out of Egypt and into
the land of promise. They
were strengthened by God
to overcome many obstacles
and defeat much more pow-
erful armies. However, in I
Samuel 8 we read that Israel
desired a king like the other
nations (v.5). The Lord
answered the request of the
people, "And the LORD said
unto Samuel, Hearken unto the
voice of the people in all that
they say unto thee: for they
have not rejected thee, but they
have rejected me, that I should
not reign over them (v. 7)." The
nation of Israel chose what
was popular over the truth
of God. They chose to do
what they thought was right
instead of following the
truth of God. Ultimately,
they rejected the truth of


God. God gave them the
king they desired, but seri-
ous consequences followed.
God was merciful to the
nation of Israel despite their
compromise of the truth.
Through Samuel the priest
God gives them a sobering
admonition, "Only fear the
LORD, and serve him in truth
with all your heart: for consid-
er how great things he hath
done for you (I Samuel
12:24)." This message still
applies to us today. We
ought to revere and respect
the Lord of Heaven and
Earth to such a degree that
we serve Him in truth. He
has done many wonderful
things for us. We have been
blessed with a great nation
and freedom to pursue great
things. It is but a small thing
to show obedience unto the
Lord and obey His truth.
Where is truth found? In
His word and in His church!

Panthers sweep Roadrunners


Davidson teams

rally for wins
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor


Davidson's Comeback
Kids did it again.
The Panthers' middle
school girls basketball team
concluded its regular season
with a 10-1 record with a 50-
45 overtime win Thursday at
intra-city rival Richbourg.
Davidson trailed 41-31
with three minutes left in
regulation before mounting
its comeback.
"If if'works, we'll go with
it," said Panthers coach
James Kerrell, whose team
also erased a nine-point
deficit in the last two min-
utes in a Jan. 12 win at
Pryor.
"This might make me lose
all of my hair prematurely,
but wow."
Davidson's boys made it a
sweep with a 32-21 victory
against Richbourg. The
Panthers trailed 11-6 at half-
time, but took command in
the second half.
"I'm proud of my guys,"
Davidson coach Howard
Swilley said. "It's been a
rough year, but they've never
given up."
Kerrell delivered a "never
give up" speech of his own
when his team huddled late
in the fourth quarter.
"I told the girls, for this
short amount of time, give it
everything you've got,"
Kerrell said. "Play as hard as
you can.
"And they did."
Davidson's rally started
when the Panthers turned
some confusion on a three-
point play attempt into a
four-point possession. ,
Kiara Turner's 3-pointer
with a minute left swished
through-thenetlo te-things
" S'N41" ther"-teas ed
again in regulation.
"Tot" Frazier got lose for
a fast break layup with one
minute left in overtime to
put the Panthers ahead for
good.
"To be down by 10 and
fight back and win at your
rival's place for first place in
the conference ... it doesn't
get any better," Kerrell said.
Kiara Turner led Davidson
with 13 points. Raquitta
Gooden added 10. Frazier

FHSAA District Tournaments
What: District 1-5A tournament
Where: Niceville High School
When and Who: Tuesday No. 3 Choctawhatchee vs. No. 6
Tate (5 p.m.); No. 4 Crestview vs. No. 5 Pace (7 p.m.). Thursday -
No. 1 Fort Walton Beach vs. Crestview or Pace (5:30,p.m.); No. 2
Niceville vs. Choctawhatchee or Tate (7:30 p.m.). Saturday -
Championship (7:30 p.m.).
Advancement: District champion and runner-up advance to
Regional 1-5A.
Outlook: Not the easiest of draws for Crestview (10-13.entering
its regular season finale). The Bulldogs face a pesky Pace team in
the quartefirnals for the right'to playaformidablae,FoAtWaltorinBeach
squad in. the" do-or-die semifinal round. Crestview beat'the Patriots
twice during the regular season, by an average of nine points per
game. The Bulldogs fell twice against the Class 5A No. 7 Vikings, by
an average of 16 points per game. Crestview does enter the tourna-
ment with all of its key players relatively healthy for the first time all
season. The Bulldogs hope all of the parts come together and click
at the right time.
Crestview coach Jay Sanders says: "Any time we play Pace, it
seems to bring out the best in their team. They play hard, and they
seem to take it up a notch when they play us. We've got to control
the boards and take good shots and make our free throws against
them, and we can't have turnovers. If we can do those things, I think
we'll be all right. With Fort Walton Beach, they are loaded with talent,
but the biggest thing about them is they know how to win. When they
step on the floor, they believe they are going to win. If we can get to
that stage, that's how we need to play. We've got to go in there with
confidence and feel like we can win. If we can do that, we're going
to have a chance to win."
If you go: Niceville High School is located at 800 East John Sims
Parkway in Niceville. Admission is $5 per session.

What: District 1-2A tournament
Where: Baker School

p.m.); Saturday Championship, No 1 Baker vs. Freeport or Jay (7
p.m.).
Advancement: District champion and runner-up advance to
Regional 1-2A.
Outlook: Baker (15-4 entering its regular season finale) cruised
to the No. 1 seed in this district, winning its four regular season dis-
trict games by an average of 23.8 points. The Gators' quickness and
pressure defense gave their two district opponents fits. The only
close call was a 50-48 victory at Jay on a night Baker shot 26 per-
cent from the field and got 20 fewer free throw attempts than the
Royals. The Gators can play stress-free in this tournament, knowing
they have a guaranteed spot in the FHSAA playoffs, win or lose.
Baker coach Kathy Combest says: "We still have to play well.
We need to run our press, run out break, and score not only in half-
court, but in transition off of turnovers by the other team. And hit our
free throws. ... Jay is just a little bigger than' us, and we're a little
quicker. Freeport has two girls (Kaycee Jones'and Nicole Dykes)
they go to as their scorers. We were able to shut one of them down
the last time we played."
If you go: Baker School is located at 1369 14th Street in Baker.
Admission is $5 per session.

Championship (7 p.m.).
Advancement: District champion and ruriner-up advance to
Regional 1-1A.
Outlook: Laurel Hill (7-14) had no trouble in its two regular sea-
son meetings against East Hill, winning the two games by an aver-
age of 29 points. The Hoboes had major problems with possible
semifinal opponent Paxton, the No. 8 team in Class IA. LHS lost a
pair of regular season meetings against the Bobcats by an average
of 36.5 points. Laurel Hill won three of its last four games entering
the postseason, and thinks it can play competitively against Paxton
if it limits its mistakes. The Hoboes can count on scoring from Mary
Smith, Sally Feagins and Joah McLaughlin,
Laurel Hill coach Scott Varnum says: "We've got to put four
quarters together, regardless of whether we're playing East Hill or
Paxton. We haven't put four quarters together all year. At times, we
showed we could play with (Paxton), but we've got to do it for four
quarters. You've got to take the mental mistakes out of it. You make
one turnover against Paxton and it's a layup. Our guards have got to
shoot the ball real well, and we've got to put four quarters together."
If you go: Central High School is located at 6180 Central School
Road in Milton. Admission is $5 per session.

Thursday during an LHS win
a against

sReese
scored 45
points,
breaking
the previ-
ous record
REESE by one
point. Jerry
Senterfitt, now Laurel Hill's
head custodian, held the
record for almost 50 years.
"Brad and Jerry have
been ragging on each other
all 'yer," Laurel Hill Coach
Kent Zessin said. "Brad had
several opportunities to
break the record, and I
wouldn't let him.
"I thought since it was
close to the end of the sea-
son, I would give him the
chance to break it since he
was making his shots."
-Reese made 19 of 26 field
goal attempts, including 5 of
9 from 3-point range. Reese
also made both of his free
throws.
Reese set the record in
the first three quarters. He
sat out the final period of the
Hoboes' 89-45 win.
Laurel Hill (21-1, 12-0
District 1-1A) won its 13th

Baker's Langley advances to state finals


Freshman headed
to Gainesville
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

FORT WALTON BEACH
- The power of positive
thinking paid off for Baker
freshman Naomi Langley on
Wednesday at the Sectional 1
girls weightlifting meet.
Langley placed second in
the 199-pound weight divi-
sion to earn a spot in the
FHSAA State Finals Feb. 11
in Gainesville.
"It's just a feeling of hap-
piness," Langley said. "I just
exploded when I found out.
Like, 'Yay!'"
Langley's finish highlight-
ed a strong performance for


local per-
formers dur-
i n g
Wednesday's
meet at Fort
Walton Beach
High School.
All five
Baker partici- LANGLEY
p ants
matched or exceeded their
personal best combined lifts
in the bench press and clean
and jerk.
"For my young girls come
in and perform so well and
get personal bests ... you just
can't beat it," Gators coach
David Oglesby said. "I'm
proud of them. If they contin-
ue to let us have this program,
we're going to continue to try
to get bigger and better."


-Weightlifting-
Langley spent the school
year telling anyone who
would listen that she would
qualify for the state meet.
As a freshman.
As a member of Baker's
first-year program.
"I told everybody at the
beginning of the season I was
going to state," Langley said.
"I was always confident."
Langley made it happen
when she lifted 125 pounds
in the bench press and 115
pounds in the clean for a life-
time-best total of 240 pounds.
Langley broke into a huge
smile after her successful
dean and jerk. The smile got
even bigger when she
checked the scoresheets.


"That means I got sec-
ond," she said. "That means I
go to state, right?"
Langley tied for first
place, but took second on a
tiebreaker. She exceeded the
sectional record for highest
total lift in her division.
"And I've got four years
to get better," she said.
The same goes for most of
the Baker team. Senior
Bonnie Bodine placed fifth in
her division. The Gators'
other sectional participants
haven't reached high school.
Eighth-grader Brandi
Holley and. seventh-graders
Kaitlyn Giles and Audrey
Adams could join Langley as
the nucleus of a program that
could emerge as a sectional
force in the years to come.


Wrestling





No laughing matter


Bortner all

business as he

nears 100 wins
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

Crestview wrestling coach
Jeff Fowler wanted. to put
Thomas Bortner in a head-
lock.
Maybe body slam him a
few times for good measure.
Bortner informed Fowler
during the fall of 2004 that
he did not plan to compete
-in the Crestview wrestling
program during his junior
year.
Other Bulldog grapplers
went to Fowler to express
their regret that Bortner had
decided not
to wrestle.
"I wanted
i rP to kill him,"
SF o w 1 e r
_.f remembers.
"Literally."
L rJA Fow1owler
BORTNER finally put in
a call to
Bortner's parents, hoping
they could persuade their
son to change his mind.
"Coach," Gail Bortner told
Fowler. "You know he's
pulling your leg, don't you?"
Very funny, Thomas.
"He's a complete
wrestler," Fowler said. "And,
suffice to say, quite a practi-
cal joker."
Bortner hasn't messed
around on the wrestling mat
during this, his senior year.
Bortner headed east this
weekend for Crestview's
appearance at the Marianna
Duals with a 28-0 record at
215 pounds.
He needs just eight more
wins to become the first
Bulldog wrestler to earn 100
career victories.
The milestone should fall
either this weekend or next
Friday, when Crestview
hosts the District 1-2A meet.
"I feel like I'm setting the
bar higher for the years to
come," Bortner said. "Other
people will say, 'I want to
beat this.' I'm setting up a
motivational tool for years to
come, and the program can
build on that."
Bortner first showed up
in the CHS wrestling room
as a freshman looking for a

way to stay in shape for
football.
Bortner immediately
earned a spot in Crestview's
varsity lineup at 189 pounds
- filling the position vacated
by the graduation of 2002
state champion Eric
Flinchum.
"My first days wrestling, I
had no idea what I was
doing," Bortner said. "I was
just naturally strong and I
beat out the guy who was
there for a spot.
"That kind of grabbed my
attention, "that this could be
something I could be really
good at. So I just ran with it. I
never looked back after that
first match."
Crestview's coaches soon
envisioned Bortner as the


Postseason
Regional qualifier
Regional qualifier
State qualifier
N/A


wrestler who could take
Flinchum's place as the pro-
gram's standard bearer.
"Right off the bat, we saw
a lot of potential," Fowler
said. "You can tell he's
worked his tail off."
Bortner's hard work
resulted in a 17-win
improvement from his
freshman year to his sopho-
more .year. He made a 12-
victory leap from his sopho-
more season to his junior
season.
Bortner still possesses that
natural strength, but now
calls his technique his biggest
asset.
"Technique, and then
strength and speed," he said.
"You can be slow if you
want, but as long as you have


that technique, you'll be all
right."
Bortner reached the
FHSAA state finals last sea-
son. He hopes to return to the
state finals this year and win
it all.
Check that. Not hopes to
win it all. Needs to win it all.
"I need to win state," he
said. "I've got to go and I've
got to compete for that
championship because
that's how I'm trying t6 go
to college. If I can win that
state title, it's almost guar-
anteed I'll get a wrestling
scholarship."
Bortner also played on the
offensive line for Crestview's
District 2-4A champion foot-
ball team.
He regularly attends First
United Methodist Church in
Crestview, and prays before
every bout.
"He's our leader," Fowler
said. "The kids follow him
and listen to him. He leads
by example. He goes out and
does what he says. Any
school would benefit from
having him on campus.
"And in addition to all he
does well, he's a practical
joker."


"For a first year program,
this was unbelievable," said
Oglesby, who spent much of
the meet inspiring and enter-
taining his lifters with his
version of the Hans & Franz
"Pump you up" Saturday
Night Live skit.
"The girls at Baker are
outstanding in their work
ethic. I give a lot of credit to
(Baker volleyball and girls
basketball coach Kathy)
Combest and their other
coaches. They just have a
drive and they like the sport.
I just hope we can continue
to build on that."
Carolyn Hunker repre-
sented Crestview during
Wednesday's meet. She lifted
175 pounds in the 183-pound
division.

Brown


headed


to OWC

Two-sport star
will play baseball
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

Crestview, senior
Anthony Brown made
two- decisions for the
price of-one:-"'
Brown decided to play
college baseball instead of
college football, and he
decided to do it at
Okaloosa-Waltoin College.
Brown signed a letter
of intent Wednesday to
play base-
ball forI.
t h ,e
Raiders
starting
with the,
2007 sea-




ters, Brown said. If I
w ill I
receive a full scholarship.
"I chose O-W because
they work on their hit-
ters," Brown said. "If I
want to go anywhere,
especially to the next
level, I need to be hitting
much better, and (OWC
coach Keith) Griffin has
been good about making
guys into much better hit-
ters."
Brown hit .338 with 24
RBIs for Crestview's base-
ball team last season.
Brown also led the
CHS football team in
tackles the last three sea-
sons. He had interest
from college recruiters in
both sports.
"With football, a lot of
colleges wouldn't let me
play both, so I had to
choose baseball over foot-
ball," Brown said. "Right
now, baseball was offer-
ing me a lot more (schol-
arship money) than foot-
ball."
Crestview baseball
coach Tim Gillis had an
inkling that his center
fielder would choose
baseball.
"He put himself in
position to get to make
this decision," Gillis said.
"That's the main thing
you like to see, for kids to
have an opportunity. It's
