Ex-Braves pitcher Rocker set to develop land in Crestview


* The 31-year-old fireballer has switched careers from striking out
batters to striking business deals with his Southern Boys Investment
Group, and has announced plans to develop 63 acres of land locally.

Former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker

News Bulletin Sports Editor
John Rocker has become a regular visitor
to north Okaloosa County.
Rocker, who pitched in Major League
Baseball from 1998-2003, became quite famil-
iar with the area as his Southern Boys
Investment Group pursued plans to develop
63 vacant acres north of U.S. Highway 90 in
west Crestview. The land is in three separate
tracts of 23, 20 and 20 acres.
Rocker also will speak at the Crestview
Rotary Club's Wild Game Feast on, Feb. 10 at
the Gum Creek Lodge near Baker.
Rocker, 31, now spends his time helping
strike business deals instead of striking out
batters, but he discusses his business affairs
in the same way baseball fans might banter
at a sports bar.
"Crestview is a great area, but your small-:


town feel might be going by the wayside
from all of the demographic information I've
been studying," said Rocker, who says data
indicates an influx of thousands of people
into the area in the next three to five years.
"The numbers are staggering. People in
Crestview are excited for the economic
development, but also scared as hell, because
where do you put all those people? You're
excited because you wanted that growth. But
then you think, 'Oh crap! Now what do you
do with it?'"
Rocker's solution: affordable housing that
fits into the local landscape. His group plans
to build townhouses in the low $200,000
price range on the sites near Highway 90.
Rocker's group also hopes to construct a 300-
unit apartment complex in the area.,
"In all small towns, people like their small
town feel and worry about a big city devel-
oper coming in and making their city look


The Crestview Rotary Club is sponsoring
a charity wild game feast and two-day quail
hunt at the Gum Creek Lodge in Baker on
Feb. 10 and 11 with guest speaker John
Rocker. The hunt hours are 8 am., 11 a.m.
and 2 p.m. on that Friday and Saturday.
Tickets are $50, with proceeds going to

emphasizes that we want to build in your

"It will be nice. Not something cookie cut-

thetically pleasing."

Gaetz firm

on Pledge

in _schools
Adam Ziglar
News Bulletin Reporter ,
On Jan. 23, the Okaloosa County
School B6aid met at the Crestview
Courthouse for its regular twice-
monthly meeting.
Cindy Frakes, District One rep-
resentative, opened with prayer,
invoking God's
presence and
S guidance on
weighty deci-
sions that affect
the school dis-
trict. Howard
Hill, District Five
representative,
customarily fol-
GAETZ lowed, leading
the audience in a recitation. of the
Pledge of Allegiance.
Opening with prayer and the
pledge that boasts America as, "one
nation under God" is a routine at
all local school board meetings.
Though prayer isn't formally said
in schools, the pledge is recited
every morning by every class in
Okaloosa County.
However, about 560 miles south
of Crestview, Palm Beach School
Board members voted unanimous-
ly on Wednesday to allow students
to sit during the pledge, a ruling
that defies state law, according to
Okaloosa County Superintendent
Don Gaetz.
A Jan. 31 article in the Palm
Beach Post explained that on Dec. 8,
2005, Cameron Frazier, a Boynton
Beach High School junior, was
scolded by his teacher when he
refused to stand for the pledge.
Frazier told the teacher that he
hadn't stood since he was in sixth
grade.
A few minutes later, the school's

The new traffic signals at the intersection of State Road 85 and Live Oak Church Road have already helped make turning onto or from the highway safer.

New signal at Live Oak Church Road helps make turns safer


Cal Zethmayr
S News Bulletin Correspondent
There is a new traffic light on south State
Road 85 at Live Oak Church Road that is help-
ing drivers make safer left hand turns across the
busy traffic.
County Commissioner Sherry Campbell said
this light is a direct result of petitions from res-
idents of the area.
"When the Florida (Department of
Transportation) had a workshop to show what
was going to happen on highway 85, the people
that live around Live Oak Church Road came
up with a petition and asked for a traffic light,"
Campbell said. "There were lots of signatures
and people at that meeting who were so con-
cerned, so I'm really proud for our residents

that we now have this light."
Okaloosa County Public Works Director
Danielle Slaterpryce said the light at Live Oak
Church Road is a temporary light and that it
will be moved a little north when Old Antioch
Road is extended a short distance east of State
Road 85 to connect to Live Oak Church Road
"We are going to re-align Live Oak Church
Road so that there is a full intersection and that
will be a safer intersection," Slaterpryce said.
"We understand that there is an' issue at Old
Antioch and there has been for some time but
because its only 500 feet between these two
right of ways we couldn't put two lights up, we
will be addressing that issue within the next
year."
There is a tip for drivers using this new light

knows a car is waiting to make a left turn either
off of 85 onto Live Oak Church Road, or wait-
ing to make a left turn to go south on 85 off of
Live Oak Church Road.
"It's important for you to stop at the stop
bars (large white strip across the left turn lanes)
if you're the first car in line because there is a
loop, that little thin line that you see that's kind
of a rectangle in the asphalt that senses whether
or not a vehicle is there, and if you've overshot
it the system thinks you have already gone
through the light so you may wind up sitting
through that light more than once. So its impor-
tant for you to stop at the stop bars. They're
there for a pretty good reason, pretty much to
cue those lights."

'The Cadle Express' returns to Big Red Machine


Adam Ziglar
News Bulletin Reporter

Being America's band has
its setbacks.
Transporting 270-plus
music makers, and their
instruments, luggage and
uniforms can be a daunting
task.
But since the late 1980s the
Big Red Machine has enlisted
the help of its trusty 1985
GMC Vandura utility van to
transport most of the band's
precious necessities.
Over the past month,
Crestview Paint and Body
revamped the big red and
white machine, donating


time and more than $5,000 in
paint and body work to
make the van look sparkling-
ly new.
New bright white paint
and.dazzling red vinyl letter-
ing on each side loudly pro-
claims that "The Big Red
Machine" has arrived.
Shop owner Ed Lowe and
Scott Harrison, the manager
and another brain behind the
revamped design of "The
Cadle Express," as Lowe
aptly calls it, handed the keys
over to band director David
Cadle at Crestview High
School on Wednesday.
"We go way back," says
Lowe, who was a 1983 grad-

uate of Crestview High
School, referring to his rela-
tionship with Cadle and the
high school.
Though Lowe never
played in the band, he's an
avid supporter of the pro-
gram.
"He is one of those busi-
ness leaders who has a great
desire to support the school,"
Cadle says.
The Crestview High band
has made a number trips
over the years to high profile,
national events, including its
most recent trip to ,the
Macy's Thanksgiving Day
Parade in New York City.
Cadle, who has taught at
the high school since 1978,
says that the program could-.
n't exist without the help of
local companies and band
parents, who put their
money where their mouths
are.
"We couldn't exist at all
without business leaders like
him (Lowe) who help us
out," he says. "This band has
a national reputation, but it
comes from a very small
town with a small business
base. We appreciate people
are here to help us."
Lowe will add the finish-
ing touches to the van next
week, which includes re-
attaching the emblems and
painting the wheel rims.
The words "Cadle
Express" splash across each
door. Cadle, who humbly
refuses to gloat about any
personal gratification;
laughed when he saw the
truck make its way into the
high school.
"I did not pay him to put
that on there," he says
humorously.

Mo-Life means new life for teens


Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter
'Six years ago Christian
Family Life Ministries pastor
Thomas Tucker and his wife
Theresa said God had spo-
ken to them and given them
a mandate to build Christian
families in Crestview, and
build the body of Christ one
heart at a time.
During the past three
months his congregation has
been transforming the old
Piggly Wiggly store into a
refuge for young people on
Sunday nights.
"In the box is what the
church does," said Thomas.
"We see where' the church
simply sends, the kids home
after the service, oftentimes
to an environment that does
not recognize God."
Thomas said that 85% of
Okaloosa County middle
school and high school stu-
dents have been introduced
to drugs.
Thomas and his wife
Theresa are trying some out-
of-the-box programs. Their
approach offers a menu of
not only spiritual food, but


also a daily menu of practical
nutrition to help young peo-
ple -battle daily peer pres-
sures to use drugs or premar-
ital sex. '-.-. -_ ...1 ..,
"We want to establish an
environment where the
youth can come and be them-
selves," said Tucker.
On this particular Sunday
evening the congregation has
prepared an evening church
service of fun, food, and
some out of the box enter-
tairiment.
It included Christian rap
music, break dancing, and a
theatrical performance by the
church teens' Md-Life group
called "Pressure."
"Sometimes we try to
bring them to where we are
spiritually and lose them
along the way," said Tucker.
"Tonight we're meeting them
where they're at. From there
we'll invite them to join us
where we're at."
Mo Life is the name of the
church's youth ministry. It's
made up-of about one dozen
young people ages 7-17.
"Pressure" encourages
young people to not fall to
peer pressure when it comes


to drugs, sex, and crime.
"Our play is all about the
daily peer pressure us teens.
come up against everyday,"
said Deanna Friday,- a.. 16-
year-old teen that played the
role of a teen trying not to fall
to the pressure of smoking
pot.
"If you think something
doesn't feel right, then it's
probably not. Just stop and
don't let the pressure over-
take you," said Friday.
The young actress's father,
Jeff Friday, applauds not
only his daughter's perfor-
mance but also the Tuckers'
commitment to area youth.
"I hope that Deanna can in
some way touch her friend's
life. I hope that she'll take
what she experiences here
with the Mo-Life group,
apply it in her life and per-
haps her friends too," the
proud father said. *
"I pray that these kids can
be successful after high
school," said Teresa Tucker.
"I constantly remind them
that choosing Christ doesn't
mean the end of life, but a
fresh beginning of a more
fulfilling one."

Mother, infant escape injury


in wreck on Antioch Road


Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter

Witnesses said it was a
true miracle that eight-
month-old Brady Bright was
not seriously injured
Friday, morning following a
wreck involving an Okaloosa
County dump truck near the
Foxwood Country Club that
totaled his 21-year-old moth-
er's car.
According to a press
release from the Florida
Highway Patrol, Amanjda P.
Bright, of Holt, was travel-
ling north of Antioch when
she was struck from behind
by a dump truck driven by
Eddie Chamberlain, 49, of
Crestview.
The child was strapped in
his car seat in the rear of his


mother's 2005 Dodge Neon.
The rear of the car was
pushed up and partially over
the top of her son's car seat.
Lisa Moody, who was
travelling behind the dump
truck, witnessed the wreck
jumped from her truck to
assist Bright's baby.
"The mother was pretty
much hysterical, shouting,
"My baby, My baby", said
Moody. "I ran to the car to
see if I could some how reach
in and help her son. The
mother was attempting to
crawl out of the. passenger
side window because none of
the doors would open," con-
tinued Moody. "I partly
crawled in through a rear
window got the baby out,
and handed him to his
mom."


Moody said she was sur-
prised the child was not hurt.
"He was just as calm as
ever, not even crying."
Moody, who herself dri-
ves a dump truck, said the
amount of damage too
Bright's car was not surpris-
ing.
"This is what happens
when drivers follow to close
and don't have enough time
to apply the brakes."
Okaloosa County officials
said the truck that
Chamberlain was driving
was empty at the time of the
wreck. They are investigat-
ing the circumstances behind
the incident.
According to the FHP
press release, Chamberlain
was charged with an infrac-
tion of careless driving.


Ken Nielsen/The News Bulletin
An anxious father holds his infant son, while Okaloosa paramedic Donna McCaulla, attends to the
child, following a three-car accident on Antioch Road early Friday morning. Eight-month-old
Brady Bright was strapped in his car seat in the rear of his mother's new Dodge Neon when she
was struck from the rear by an Okaloosa County dump truck. The rear of Amanda R Bright's car
was pushed up and folded over onto the child's car seat. Miraculously Brady sustained no serious
injuries. Mother and son were transported to North Okaloosa Medical Center for treatment.

ROCKER, from page 1


down. Rocker compiled 88
saves and 332 strikeouts in
six years in the big leagues,
most of them with the
Atlanta Braves. He conclud-
ed his career in 2005 after
attempting to make a come-
back from rotator cuff
surgery with the Long Island
Ducks of the independent
Atlantic League of
Professional Baseball.'
For those of you wonder-
ing about Rocker's thoughts
on his controversial 1999
Sports Illustrated interview,
stop wondering. Rocker's
publicist points out that the
incident occurred seven
years and three Braves
closer ago, and that Rocker
"has moved on." Jeff
Pearlman, who penned the
Rocker piece for Sports
Illustrated, also has written
that fans eventually went too
far in their constant Rocker
criticisms, and that Rocker
"deserves a second chance."
Rocker threw his last
major league pitch at about
the time he joined' Keith
Brooking and Chris Mohr of


the Atlanta Falcons and for-
mer Falcons quarterback
Doug Johnson to form
Southern Boys Development
Group. Ray Cox of Cox &
Cox Inc. in Dothan provides
the group with almost 30
years of experience in the
commercial development
business.
Rocker says many of the
people he encounters in his
new line of-work remember
him from his baseball days.
For the most part, that's a
good thing.
"It's fine," Rocker said.
"In some respects, people
might not take me seriously
because of the knowledge
they think I do or don't have.
In the last few years, I have
gained a lot of knowledge
about how developing works
and I'm not quite as green as
I was three years ago.
"And the sports back-
ground opens a lot of doors,
too. People who may not
give you any attention other-
wise, because you've got a
name, it opens a lot of
doors."

As she watched the traffic

Monday, Slaterpryce said
everybody gets a fair oppor-
tunity.
"Before the light, you
could have to wait several
,minutes before you could

wait on Live Oak Church
Road, and then you would
have to wait in the median
and this is a much safer way
to get everybody across."
Once the Old Antioch
Roacd intersection is con-
structed and the traffic light
moved there, Live Oak
Church Road won't enter
onto State Road 85.
"FDOT has, informed us
that we will have to remove
the connection to 85 here at
the Wayside Park,"
Slaterpryce said. "You will be
able to get to the park via the
new alignment. It will be
much better. You won't have
such a steep hill to go up."
North Okaloosa com-
muters that use P.J. Adams
and Old Antioch Road to
travel between highways 85
and 90 have some good news
too. Campbell said the county
had requested a warrant

He sued on the basis that

that the south Florida case

In the letter, Gaetz refer-

made on Aug. 12, 2002, in
response to statewide com-
plaints that the words
"under God" should be
removed from the pledge.
In the memo, Gaetz said
that "we are supported by
Florida law."
He was referring to sec-

Statutes (titled Patriotic
Programs), which say that
the Pledge of Allegiance
"shall be rendered by stu-
dents standing with the right

and that will be a big plus for
traffic at that end of the road,"
Campbell said.


The law goes' on to say
that students are only
excused from reciting the
pledge if they have written
consent from a parent or
guardian.
Gaetz also sent a signed
letter to all Okaloosa stu-
dents, explaining that the
pledge is backed by state
law, and explained that if
they choose to not recite the
pledge they can provide a
written parental consent
form to their principal.

Post on Jan. 31, 62.25 percent
of the people said that stu-
dents should be required to
recite the pledge, while 34.74
percent said that they
shouldn't.
George Liedel, a retired
Navy lieutenant commander,
served in the Vietnam War in
1965. He sees the pledge as
an opportunity to honor the
country and its heroes.
"My country means a lot

to me," he said. "I think the
Pledge of Allegiance is the
best way in the world that I
can show how much it
means to me."
Liedel had eight other sib-
lings. Four of his brothers
and his older sister all served
in the Navy during World
War II.
Jason Green, pastor at
Airport Road Church of
Christ, believes that the
pledge is a cornerstone of
faith in America.
"Removing it would be a
great travesty," he said,
when asked if he thought the
future of America's tradi-
tional religious values could
be replaced by a more multi-
cultural, less unmingled eth-
nology.
"We've gone so far as to
not wanting to offend any-
body, that we have now told
Christians that you can't say
God and you can't have a
creator because it may offend
someone else."

Chesser knows what it's like to

wait, clearing mines after the war


John
Parrott
Bulletin
Military
Reporter

Marvin
Chesser of
Crestview
knows a
thing or two
about hav-
ing to wait.
As one of 13
Marvin children, he
Chesser as a often had to
young seamran wait his
in San Diego turn. What
in 1948 he didn't
expect was
having to wait to get dis-
charged after serving in the
US Navy during WWII, but
that is exactly what hap-
pened. He had served his
country, but Uncle Sam had
other ideas and made him
wait, and this time for three
long years.
After Japan surrendered
and the war drew to a dose,
most of the million or so
American men and women
were being discharged
rapidly, with one. exception.
Those who were serving
aboard Minesweepers were
kept on duty until mid-1948,
and Chesser was among
those.
"While everybody else
was getting out, myself and
a few hundred others were
kept on active and there
wasn't anything we could
do about it," Chesser said,
describing duty on the
Minesweeper AM-120, the
USS Sway.
"Even after we clear6d
Tokyo Harbor, and then the
Pacific shipping lanes, we
were shipped back to San
Diego, where we prepared
ships for mothballing and


salvaging. This went on
until the spring of 1948. By
then we were the only ones
left, other than the career
guys," Chesser added.
It all started in the fall of
1942, on the family farm in
North Okaloosa County,
when 17-year-old Chesser
told his parents he was join-
ing the U.S. Navy. "I told
them I was going, alid any-
way, the next morning I
went to Crestview and
signed up. Before I knew it,
I was on my way to
Jacksonville."
After induction, Chesser
shipped out by train to'
Baltimore, Md., where he
.went into intensive basic
training, and afterwards
boarded another train for .
Galveston, Texas. Then on
June 27, 1943, he went
aboard the escort destroyer
DE-411, the USS Stafford, as
a boatswain.
"We sailed from
Galveston, and headed
toward the Panama Canal,
where we transited with two
other war ships," Chesser
said. "Then we moored at
Balboa for a couple of days
and then on to San Diego."
"We trained night and
day seven days a week
while we were en route. My
primary duty was
boatswain, or deck hand,
but my battle station duty
was quad forty gunner, and
that was really tough
because it required such
intense concentration. We'd
get a firing order from the
gunnery officer, and he'd tell
us what elevation and direc-
tion and once vwe saw the
firing button pulse red, we
commenced firing. You real-
ly had to concentrate, and
concentrate hard to listen to
the gunnery officer's orders


through the headset and
then fire as you were
ordered. These guns were
on a swivel turret, and one
second you might be firing
to the east and the next you
may be going west or north,
and we'd fire them so quick-
ly the barrels would start
glowing.
"When (we) arrived in
Hawaii, nothing changed as
far as military duty because
we kept doing anti-subma-
rine warfare training, and
.that was around the clock.
Then finally in the late
evening hours of 18 August,
we steamed out of Pearl
Harbor for the Marshall
Islands, along with the USS
Feiberling as part of Task
Group 16.8. And on the 25th
of August we arrived at the
Kwajalein Islands. From
there we pretty much blan-
keted the western Pacific
and the Philippine Islands.
We continued our patrols
looking for subs or enemy
ships and most of the time
we never engaged them, but
we did plenty of training.
There was never any let up
and it continued night and
day, seven days a week,"
Chesser said.
"Finally on New Year's
Day evening around dusk,
we were attacked by eight
Jap planes and they came in
low and out of the fading
sun. We were part of Task
'Force 77 then, and around
us were the USS Gross and
USS Ulvert M. Moore, but
despite our best efforts to
bear our guns on the planes,
one of them got through and

struck us amidship on the
starboard side," Chesser
soid. "We knew we were hit
bad because we started tak-
ing on water really fast, and
most of us were transferred


to the USS
Moore after
we'd ditched the
ammunition,
depth charges
and machine
guns.
"After that, I
never saw any of
my Stafford
shipmates
again," Chesser
said, and added,
"I was then
transferred to
the USS
Anderson, and I
heard later on
the Stafford
sunk, and then I
heard it hadn't,
but I' never
knew."
Actually, the
USS Stafford
made it through
the war, and was
sold for scrap in Marvin C
1973 to National Japanese
Metal and Steel
Corp. at Terminal
Island, California.
Chesser made the jump,
and not voluntarily or
directly from the escort
destroyer USS Stafford to
Minesweepers. Following
his assignment to the USS
Anderson, Japan surren-
dered several months later,
and then it was during that
time that Chesser was trans-
ferred to the USS Sway.
"My official position was
cable tender, which meant I
was responsible for the
boom and cables that swung
down from the starboard
and port side of the bow,
and these were the things
that captured the mines.
Once we trapped one, I
would take my rifle and
then shoot it and it would
explode harmlessly, but as I
said, there were thousands
of these things and we had
to capture them one by one
and explode them so we
could open up the sea lanes.


hesser of Crestview holds up. copy of a newspaper proclaiming
surrender on August 28, 1945.


"When we finally
returned to San Diego in
September of 1947, I was
detailed to the mothballing
and salvage crew, but I have
to tell you I didn't mind it at
all because it was easy duty,
and We got liberty every
night," Chesser grinned.
"I remember the day and
hour I finally got told I had
been discharged," Chesser
said.
"I was up on the mast
doing some work and my
boss, Lieutenant Stumpky,
yelled up and told me to
come down. I could see he
had something in his hand
but I didn't know what it
was," said Chesser.
"Anyway, I yelled down and
told him I'd be down after I
finished what I was doing,
and he yelled back, 'You've
been discharged,' and let me
tell youi I came down fast,
real fast."
"The navy put me on a
train in San Diego and I


went to Jacksonville, where I
was discharged. That was
in the early part of .1948,"
said Chesser. "After my dis-
charge I caught a train for
Crestview, and by summer
Jeanette Hulon and I had
gotten married."
"One of the first things
we did was start up a busi-
ness here in Crestview," said
Chesser.
"I got the money together
to open a taxi service and it
did pretty well, but after a
while I sold it and got a job
at Eglin Air Force Base,
where I worked for the next
thirty five years."
His wife passed away
several years ago, but
Chesser stays busy working
around the property and
spending time with his chil-
dren and grandchildren and
as he says, "I'm glad I had
an opportunity to serve my
country, but Ijust wish they
hadn't made me wait so
long to get out."

Senior Citizen 911


Two-thirds of victims in recent natural disaster were over 60


Special to the News Bulletin

Americans will long
remember the natural disas-
ters that ravaged the Gulf
Coast, but Mother Nature's
fury can strike anywhere at
any time of the year.
Hurricanes, tornadoes, earth-
quakes, power outages,
floods and snowstorms arq no
respecters of age or economic
status.
And when catastrophe
comes calling, seniors and
family caregivers are among
the most vulnerable, accord-
ing to the American Red'
Cross and Home Instead
Senior Care, the nation's
largest provider of non-med-
ical home care and compan-
ionship for the elderly. "We
saw firsthand during
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
how seniors could be at
greater risk than other demo-

graphic groups," said Victoria
Melvin, Preparedness Expert
for the American Red Cross.
About two-thirds (67 percent)
of the 623 victims of
Hurricane Katrina identified
so far from the New Orleans
area were over 60, according
to the Louisiana Department
of Health and Hospitals.
"But it's not just hurri-
canes. Natural disasters
impact seniors and their fam-
ilies in various ways through-
out the country each year,"
Melvin added.
"At the local level, w,e
know that a disaster can be
deadly for some seniors
because of physical and
other limitations," according
to Todd Harrell, owner of the
Home Instead Senior Care
office serving Okaloosa and
Walton Counties. "That's
why we're always ready to
help seniors prepare for any

kind of emergency that could
threaten their health or safe-
ty." Home Instead Senior
Care hires non-medical
CAREGivers who go into
seniors' homes to help keep
them independent as well as
assist them in a time of crisis.
Consider these examples
from across the United States:
A CAREGiver in Indiana
rode out a killer tornado with
a senior in her home, comfort-
ing her until the danger
passed.
When a massive bliz-
zard hit Colorado, a
CAREGiver traversed dan-
gerous streets to make sure
an older adult had everything
she needed to survive.

During Hurricane
Katrina, a Home Instead
CAREGiver drove a senior
client with Alzheimer's dis-
ease with the permission of
'the client's family to
Georgia for two weeks to
escape the onslaught of the
storm.
Long-distance family
caregivers, whose loved ones
live hundreds of miles away,
may be at a particular disad-
vantage when it comes to
preparing their seniors for
disaster and being there to
help, Harrell added. That's"
when a professional
CAREGiver can be particu-
larly crucial. "Regardless of
whether they have family
close by or not, seniors and
their caregivers t are at
increased risk in a disaster if
they have not made a plan,"
Melvin said.
In a Kaiser Foundation
Family Poll, conducted in
September 2005 at the
Astrodome and other large
facilities in Houston after

percent') sail tey d not
leave New Orleans because
they were physically unable
to go or they were caring for
someone who couldn't leave.
"We believe that seniors
were most affected during the


storm," Melvin said. "Census
2000 figures indicate that
before the hurricane, 54,000
people in the city of New
Orleans self-reported having
a long-lasting condition that
made dressing, bathing and
getting around their home
difficult and those individu-
als are often seniors," she
said.
"More than 107,800 said
that they had a condition that
substantially limited basic
physical activities such as
walking, climbing stairs,
reaching, lifting or carrying.
The hurricanes were a stark
reminder of the toll that disas-
ters can. take on unprepared
seniors."
Advance preparation is a
key to ensuring that local
seniors are ready for -the
unexpected. "The best protec-
tion for seniors and caregivers
is to take action now to pre-
pare for an emergency and
make a plan of action long
before any emergency arises,"
Melvin said.
Family "caregivers play,'A
critical role in this process,
said Hairelt "The main thing
for seniors and families to do
right away is assess what the
senior would need in the
event of a disaster. If someone
requires additional assistance
they should identify a team -


a personal support network -
such as neighbors, relatives
and friends, who will help.
"Seniors, their family and
caregivers should organize
that plan around every place
they might be during the day
or the week, such as a library
,or community center," he
.noted.
Communication after a
disaster strikes should be a
vital component of such a
plan. "The local telephone
lines often are overloaded in a
disaster,". Melvin said, "but
long-distance lines may be
working. Seniors should
always have an out-of-town
contact number available to
call after a disaster to let
someone know they are O.K."

'1 WystoHip eiorsIrepre or isate


Following are 10 ways that
seniors, their families and
caregivers can prepare for a
natural disaster, according to
Home Instead Senior Care
and the American Red Cross.
1. Be informed. Contact
the local emergency manage-
ment office or American Red
Cross chapter to learn about
the most likely natural disas-
ters to strike your area.
2. Complete a personal
assessment. A senior should
determine what he or she can
or can't do before, during and
after a disaster. Make a list of
those needs and resources
that can meet them. The fol-
lowing American Red Cross
publications should help:


Preparing for Disaster for
People with Disability and
Other Special Needs (A4497),
and Disaster Preparedness
for People with Disabilities
(A5091).
3. Make a plan. Schedule a
family meeting to assess your
needs in an emergency and
develop a plan of action.
Include in your plan key peo-
ple in your life such as
neighbors, friends, relatives
and professional caregivers -
who could help. Remember
to include pets ir your plan.
4. Know where 'to get
information during an emer-
gency, either through the local
television, radio- or NOAA
weather radio. Have available.
a battery-operated radio.
Different alarms are available
to notify people with medical
conditions of impending dis-
aster, such as a strobe alarm
for the hearing-impaired. .
5. Discuss multiple escape
routes. Like all families and
households, seniors should
develop at least two escape
routes, one out of their home
in case of a fire when they
need to get out of the home
quickly and out of the area in
case they need to evacuate
their community. (The local
emergency management
office can tell you escape
routes out of the community.)
Designate a place to meet
other relatives or key support
network people outside the
house, as well as a second
location outside the neighbor-
hood, such as a school or
church. Practice the plan at
least twice a year.
6. Know when to go or to
stay and how to make the
decision to stay or leave.


When deciding to evacuate,
older adults should go sooner
rather than later. By waiting
too long, they may be unable
to leave if they require assis-
tance from others.
7. Assemble a disaster
supplies kit. Have an easy-to-
carry kit with three days non-
perishable food and water
with an additional four days of
food and water readily acces-
sible at home. Have at least
one gallon of water per per-
son per day. Bottled water
may be easier to store and
carry. Refresh and replace
your supplies at least twice a
year.
8. Remember medications
and other essentials. Copies
of prescriptions, extra eye
glasses and hearing-aid bat-
teries, along with paper prod-
ucts such as toilet paper,
should be part of your disas-
ter supplies kit. Label every
piece of important equipment
or personal item in case they
are lost.
9. Make a list of contact
telephone numbers. The list
should include people on a
senior's support network as
well as doctors and other
important health-care profes-
sionals. Log on to www.red-
cross.org/contactcard for a
sample contact card that can
be used.
10. Call a professional
CAREGiver if you or your
loved one needs extra help. If
a senior needs assistance
and you can't be there, con-
tact Home Instead Senior
Care at (850) 243-6464. Or
find a Home Instead Senior
Care office nearest your loved
one by logging on to
www.homeinstead.com.

Bulldogs, Hoboes -Girls basketball-


fall in semifinals
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

NICEVILLE -
Crestview's girls basketball
team got knocked around,,
and then knocked out of the
FHSAA postseason.
Top-seeded Fort Walton
Beach used its size and
strength to set the tone for a
52-35 victory against the
fourth-seeded Bulldogs in a
District 1-5A tournament
semifinal Thursday at
Niceville High School.
"They just dominated us
on the physical side of the
ball and they were more
aggressive in their play," said
CHS coach Jay Sanders,
whose team finished 12-14.
"That's how it's gotten to be
now in girls basketball. If
you are not like that, then
you are at a disadvantage.
That's how they play, and
that's how you should play if
you can get away with being
that physical.
"Don't take anything
away from them. They know
how to win and they know
how to play physical, and
they know that's the kind of
way you have to play to get
down there to (state finals
site) Lakeland. Just a domi-
nant effort by them."
Fort Walton Beach (23-3)'
came out playing like a
female version of the Detroit
Pistons. The Vikings fiercely
contested every Crestview
dribble, pass and shot.
The pressure immediately
took a toll. CHS point guard
Jamia Akiris had a shiner
under her left eye within the
game's first moments. The
Bulldogs committed six
turnovers and missed 8 of 10


2, and wo o'd lead by double
digits for the rest of the game.


The Vikings kept up the
pressure. Fort Walton Beach
blew the game wide open
with an 11-0 run that took up
most of the second period
and resulted in a 33-8 Vikings
lead.
"They're manhandling us
down there," Sanders told
his team during one timeout.
"We've got to do the same
thing to them."
The Fort Walton Beach
lead maxed out at 31 points
in the second half. Ashley
Archie scored nine of her 17
points in the final quarter to
help Crestview reduce the
deficit to 17 by the end of the
game.
The Bulldogs reached the
semifinals with a 52-46 come-
back win against rival Pace
during Tuesday's quarterfi-
nal round.
Crestview trailed for most
of the contest, and faced a 40-
36 deficit early in the fourth
quarter.
The Bulldogs then pulled
together and went on a
game-turning 8-0 run.
CHS took its first lead since
the first quarter when Liz
Graham dished to Archie for a
layup and a 41-40 advantage
with 4:55 to go. Crestview
would not trail again.
"That was a great pass by
Liz," Archie said. "After that
basket, we kept rebounding
and making baskets, and
things kept going our way."
Tera Gainer led' the
Bulldogs with 15 points.
Archie added 10.
"I'm just so proud of the
girls. Pace has been our rival
since all of these girls have
been here," said Sanders,
whose .program annually
competed with the Patriots
for top honors in Class 4A
district .tournaments during
..the-first-half of the decade.
"Pace doesn't quit, and
tonight, we didn't quit either.

Baker vs. Jay, 7 p.m.

When the girls got down in a
do or die situation, they kept
battling back."
Crestview played the
2005-06 season without a
senior on the roster. Sanders
thinks his young team can
pick up some lessons from
the Fort Walton Beach loss.
"They can learn you've got
to be more physical like they
are, and more aggressive," he
said. "I think that comes with
experience and age."

LHS falls
Laurel Hill also saw its
season end Thursday.
Class 1A No. 7 Paxton
defeated the Hoboes 42-28 in
the District I-1A tournament
semifinals at Central.
The top-seeded Bobcats
(20-4) defeated LHS for the
third time this season. The
fourth-seeded Hoboes fin-
ished 8-15.
"We played them the best
we've played them all year,"
Laurel Hill coach Scott
Varnum said. "It just didn't
quite come out the way we
wanted it to. But I was real
proud of my girls -for playing
hard right to the end and
playing good team ball and
going with our game plan."
The Hoboes frustrated the
Bobcats in the first half by
slowing the tempo.
Paxton's Jessica Fink hit a
3-pointer at the halftime
buzzer to give the Bobcats a
26-18 lead and force LHS to
pick up the pace. '
"That's where I thought
the momentum changed,"

County clash


Ken Nielsen/The News Bulletin
Laurel Hill senior Austin Garrett drives to the basket during the Hoboes' boys basketball
game Tuesday at Fort Walton Beach. Laurel Hill staked its claim as the best team in Okaloosa
County with a 66-60 victory over the Vikings, the No. 1 seed for the District 1-5A tournament.
Brad Reese led LHS with 25 points.

BOyS basketball
FHSAA District Tournaments
What: District 1-5A tournament
Where: Crestview High School,,
When and Who: Tuesday No. 3 Niceville vs. No. 6 Pace (6 p.m.); No. 4 Crestview vs. No. 5 Tate
(7:30 p.m.). Friday No. 2 Choctawhatchee vs. Niceville or Pace (6 p.m.); No.' 1 Fort Walton Beach vs.
Crestview or Tate (7:30 p.m.). Saturday Championship (7 p.m.). i
Advancement: District champion and runner-up advance to Regional 1-5A.
Outlook: Crestview (12-12 entering its regular season finale) hopes the home court advantage results
in a strong performance in the district tournament. The field seems balanced. Four of the six squads in.
the tournament defeated a higher-seeded team at least once during the regular season. The Bulldogs
swept their season series against Tate, winning the two games by an average of 11.5 points. Should
Crestview advance, the Dawgs know they can play top-seeded Fort Walton Beach close. CHS fell 64-62
at home against the Vikings on Dec. 2. The Dawgs had a shot to win the game, but a 3-pointer at the
buzzer rimmed out. If Crestview can control the tempo, it will have a chance against any opponent.^.
Crestview coach Brian Humphrey says: "I'm expecting a real good tournament. The four big schools
in our county are clustered together, so I'm expecting a lot of people to come out. No matter who we play,
we've been emphasizing doing what we've practiced doing, and I hope that's good enough to get us there.
We'll focus on not making many mistakes early in the game, and making our free throws down the stretch."

What: District 1-2A tournament
Where: Freeport High School
When and Who: Tuesday No. 2 Jay vs. No. 3 Pensacola Christian (6 p.m.); No. 1 Freeport vs.
No. 4 Baker (7:30 p.m.). Saturday Championship (7 p.m.).
Advancement: District champion and runner-up advance to Regional 1-2A.
Outlook: Baker (6-15 entering its regular season finale) will face its biggest district roadblock right off the
bat. Freeport defeated the Gators by an average of 31.5 points in two regular season meetings. Baker will
set up its defense to contain Freeport center Howard Dawson, who scored 31 points against the Gators on
Jan. 20. Baker will setup its offense to give Blake Williams opportunities to break down the Freeport defense.
Look for the Gators to slow the tempo if they can get an early lead. Should Baker advance, the Gators will
contend with the height of Jay or the strong perimeter play of Pensacola Christian in the championship game.
Baker coach Mike Martello says: "We've got to stay out of foul trouble. Our game at Pensacola
Christian showed us if we have the wrong people in foul trouble when we try to match up defensively, it
puts us in a very bad spot. We've also got to shoot the ball well. Freeport has played zone defense both
times we played them, and I don't expect anything different because the outcome has been favorable for
them. So I expect a zone, and that means we're going to have to shoot the ball well from the outside."
If you go: Freeport High School is located at 12615 U.S. 331 in Freeport. Admission is $5 per session.
What: District 1-1A tournament
Where: Paxton School
When and Who: Tuesday No. 2 Dr. Gainer vs. No. 7 East Hill (4:30 p.m.); No. 3 Rocky Bayou vs.
No. 6 Escambia Charter (6 p.m.); No. 4 Central vs. No. 5 Paxton (7:30 p.m.). Friday Dr. Gainer or
East Hill vs. Rocky Bayou or Escambia Charter (6 p.m.); No. 1 Laurel Hill vs. Central or Paxton (7:30
p.m.). Saturday Championship (7 p.m.).
Advancement: District champion and runner-up advance to Regional 1-1A.
Outlook: Laurel Hill (22-1 entering its regular season finale) looks unbeatable on paper. The Hoboes
started the week with a 14-game winning streak. LHS went 12-0 in district play, winning its games by an
average of 30 points. Still, Laurel Hill coach Kent Zessin has plenty of ways to keep his team motivated.
Potential. semifinal foes Central and Paxton pose different kinds of danger. Central has skilled forward
Keith Germann, who scored 63 points in a January game against Escambia Charter. Paxton eliminated
a highly-regarded Hoboes team from the postseason two years ago. Potential championship game
opponent Rocky Bayou gave Laurel Hill some of its closest games of the season.
Laurel Hill coach Kent Zessin says: "Having the bye can hurt you and help you, but we have been
in this situation before. This is our third year in a row having a bye, and I think the guys have become
accustomed to having those days off before we play. It's going to give us some time to get back in the
gym and fine-tune some things we need to be working on since we've been playing a lot of games. Either
(Central or Paxton) is going to be a tough opponent even though we had some success with them dur-
ing the regular season. When it comes district time, you can throw all of those things out the window.
We experienced that two years ago when we got upset by Paxton in their gym. But these kids are play-
ing real well and peaking at just the right time and everyone is pretty healthy, so I like our chances."
If you go: Paxton School is located at 21893 U.S. 331 in Paxton. Admission is $5 per session.

Bortner milestone highlights district meet


Six Dawgs headed

to the regional
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

Thomas Bortner needed just
53 seconds to make history
Friday night during the District
1-2A wrestling tournament at
Crestview High School.
Bortner pinned
Choctawhatchee's Sean
Greenwood in the 215-pound
semifinals to become the first
CHS wrestler to earn 100 career
victories.
"My 100th got all of the jitters
out," said Bortner, who


-- Wrestling
improved to 37-0 for his senior
season in front of a pro-
Crestview crowd that included
principal Andy Johnson and
football coach Matt Brunson.
"I couldn't sleep (Thursday)
because all of a sudden fans were
coming to watch. The big names
were coming out. After my first
match, it was smooth sailing."
Bortner needed just 115 more
seconds to win the 215-pound
championship bout against
Rutherford's Kyle Starling.
Bortner's title highlighted a
fifth-place finish for Crestview
in the team standings. Mosley


won the team title on the
strength of eight finalists.
Five other CHS wrestlers fin-
ished in the top four in their
weight classes and will join
Bortner at the Region 1-2A tour-
nament next weekend at Lincoln.
Thomas Kimm (160 pounds)
and Artum Pazych (171) placed
second in their weight classes.
Gary Smudzinski (189) finished
third. Nate Johnson (130) and
Nic Panucci (140) took fourth.
"We had some really good
individual performances," said
Jeff Fowler of the CHS coaching
staff. "Thomas Kimm had a great
tournament, and Bortner domi-
nated (Starling) in the final."

Hoboes hold off

Bulldogs in regular

season finale
Steve Andrews
Managing Editor

LAUREL HILL With the Super
Bowl only two days away, basketball
was the sport of choice in north
Okaloosa County Friday night.
Laurel Hill (23-1), ranked No. 4 in
the state's Class 1A poll, proved once
again that good things not only come
in small packages, but also at small
schools.
After holding off a late charge by
Class 5A Crestview (12-13) and walk-
ing away with a 70-66 victory, the
Hoboes are now 5-0 against in-coun-
ty opponents this season, all in larger
classifications including two wins
against the Bulldogs, two wins
against Baker and a win at Fort
Walton Beach on Tuesday.
The win was also their 15th
straight.
"Laurel ,Hill is a good team,"
Crestview coach Brian Humphrey
said. "They are the real deal. I can see
them going all the way to Lakeland
(for the state tournament). And they
will probably be the only public
school in 1A.
"They rank right up there with
any team I've seen this year."
The Hoboes jumped out to a quick
4-0 lead before the teams began to
slug it out like eager prizefighters.
There were nine lead changes and six
ties and that was in the first half
alone.
The Hoboes ended the'second
quarter on an 11-4 run to take a 36-31
lead into the intermission.
"It was the kind of game I expect-
ed," Laurel Hill coach Kent Zessin
said. "This is becoming a good rival-

week's local boys basketball district
tournaments on Page 9.

ry and that's the intensity that both
teams brought tonight.
"I thought Crestview played
extremely well, a-d I thought they
hit the boards awfully wel."
The Hoboes began the third quar-
ter on an 8-2 run to stretch the lead to
11 after af spinning layup from Brad
Reese.
Zac Hamm's 3-pointer with 6:04
left in the game pushed the lead to
15, before the scrappy Dawgs began
clawing their way back.
Crestview's Kelley Parris scored
11 of his team-high 22 in the final
three minutes of the game to help cut
the lead to 69-66 with 30 seconds left.
Parris was 12 of 13 from the line.
Reese led the Hoboes with 26
points, 14 rebounds and six blocked
shots.
"We were able to get some shots to
fall when we needed them," Reese
said. "Our confidence goes way up
knowing that we are playing with the
big boys. Coach made a tough sched-
ule this year and we've just played
through it. I'm glad we're where
we're at right now."
The season's second game
between Laurel Hill and Crestview
packed the LHS gym beyond capaci-
ty. Laurel Hill principal Rodney
Nobles had to limit the number of
people allowed into the gym by half-
time of the junior varsity game.

Matthews fits in FAMU picture


Crestview DE
signs with Rattlers
Kyle WriglIt
News Bulletin Sports Editor

Crestview senior Marquis
Matthews spent Wednesday
rushing from photo shoot to
photo shoot.
Matihews warmed up for
an afternoon senior portrait"
with a morning ceremony to
sign his letter of intent to
play football at Florida A&M
University.
Matthews will receive a
full scholarship from the
Tallahassee school.
"They started coming to
my practices and games and


Football--

they showed a lot of interest,"
said Matthews, a 6-foot-3
defensive end. "It's a good
choice because it was close to
home and the coaches make
you feel like you are at home."
. FAMU, an NCAA Division
I-AA program, went 6-5 last
season. FAMU signed 20
other players on Wednesday.
"We were very thorough
in looking at each player aca-
demically and character
wise, along with his athletic
abilities," Rattlers coach
Rubin Carter said. "We made
sure each person we wanted
was a good fit who could be
productive academically and
athletically at Florida A&M."


Carter played in the NFL
from 1975-1986. Carter's son,
Andre, played defensive end
for the San Francisco 49ers
for the last five seasons.
"(Andre Carter) plays the
same position I do, and the
coach says he'll show me
some new ways of playing
the game," Matthews said.
Matthews led Crestview in
sacks during the 2005 season.
"He was. a great athlete in
our program," CHS coach
Matt Brunson said. "He did a
great job for us, and now
he'll be a great asset to
Florida A&M's program.
"He's got a great quick
first step off of the edge, and
he'll be a great pass rusher in
that league."
