Remembering Barney


Steve Andrews/The News Bulletin
Crestview resident J.T. Garrett holds up a signed picture Thursday of himself and Don Knotts from 1991, the year Garrett was
named best look-alike of Knott's character, Barney Fife, from "The Andy Griffith Show."


Look-alike fondly recalls



relationship with Knotts

M Crestview resident J. T Garrett is still called "Barney" by locals
who see his resemblance to the lovable deputy, played by legendary
actor Don Knotts, who passed away last week at the age of 81.


Family, police

seek missing

Crestview man

Charles Tucker, 54, has been
missing from his Edney Avenue home
for almost three weeks.
Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter
The sudden and mysterious disappearance of a
Crestview man has family members, friends, and
the Crestview Police Department baffled and con-
cerned.
Charles Tucker, 54, 315 W.
Edney Ave., was reported
missing by his wife, Brenda
Tucker, on Feb. 16, three
days after he disappeared.
The couple was married in
November 2005.
"This is just not like him
to disappear like this," said
Brenda Tucker. "Charles
would not just leave like TUCKER
this."
Mrs. Tucker said that the last time she saw her
husband was around 11 a.m. Monday, Feb. 13. She
said that he walked out the door with his fishing
pole headed to the Shoal River to fish a little before
work.
"All he had with him was his fishing rod, the
dothes he was wearing and his gloves for work,"
said Tucker. "I think he had $125 cash in his pock-
et. He drove away in his car and has never
returned."
Tucker explained wh'Y she waited three days to
notify police.
"Sometimes if we have an argument he'll spend
the night in his car somewhere," said Brenda
Tucker. "But he's always back the next morning.
This time is different. We weren't even fighting."
Tucker worked at NC Manufacturing in
Crestview. His job supervisor, David Kirkland, said
Tucker was a good worker and a likeable person.
"He was an absolutely stand up guy," said
Kirkland. "He was here everyday on time. He real-
ly liked his job and was well liked by everyone

Adam Ziglar
News Bulletin Reporter
J.T. Garrett was relaxing in his easy chair
when the sad report scrolled across the bot-
tom of his TV screen: "Actor Don Knotts
dies at 81."
Knotts, who is known for his role as
everybody's favorite fumbling one-bullet
hero Barney Fife on "The Andy Griffith
Show," died Friday night of pulmonary and
respiratory complications at the University
of California, Los Angeles Medical Center.
Garrett, a longtime Crestview resident, is
known to many from here to Mount Airy,
N.C., Andy Griffith's hometown, as the
Barney Fife look-alike. His doubling days
as the fearless Fife's doppelganger began in
1991, when he won a national Deputy Fife
look-alike contest. Thursday morning,
Garrett recalled the initial sting of hearing
the news of Knotts' death.
;"It was a sad occasion," he said. "I'm
part of him and he's part of me. I've had
people since tell me that my shadow is


missing."
Garrett spent time with Knotts in the
early 1990s as a result of his resemblance to
the Fife character. Though he doesn't daim
to be a dose, personal friend to Knotts,
Garrett remembers how friendly and ami-
cable he was upon first meeting him more
than 15 years ago.
"He was a quiet fellow,"- Garrett said.
"I'm just glad I met him because it really
put something in my life that nothing else
would have done.
"He has brought a lot to my life in the
last 12 to 15 years. I'm Barney down here.
Anywhere I go, it's 'Hey Barney."'"
Confident in her husband's likeness to
the hilarious comedian, Elsie Garrett
entered J.T. in the look-alike contest during
the George "Goober" Lindsey Festival and
Arts Alive '91 at the University of North
Alabama, in Florence.
"He owes it all to me," said Elsie, joking
about her role in her husband's rise to local
stardom. "When the kids were in school,
people would say, 'Your daddy looks like

Barney Fife.'"
Knotts was born on July 21, 1924, in
Morgantown, W.V. His comedic career first
began while in high school, doing ventrilo-
quist bits in local clubs and churches.
However, after reeling from mixed reac-
tions to his skit, Knotts tossed his dummy

In the mid-1950s, he was an original
cast member of "The Steve Allen Show,"
a comedy variety show, where he acted
in audience participation skits in the
"Man On the Street" gag. His bug-eyed
character nervously fumbled through
the answers to off-the-wall questions
while strolling shyly down a meander-
ing sidewalk.
Knotts displayed an uncanny sense of
self-deprecating, self-loathing humor
that would serve as a foundation for his
later roles, especially his tenure on "The
Andy Griffith Show," which was on the
air from 1960 to 1968. In those eight
years, the show was in the Nielsen

Florida, Alabama officials meet to discuss


Cal Zethmayr
News Bulletin Correspondent

More than 40 officials
from Alabama and Florida
met at the Bob Sikes Library
on Friday morning to dis-
cuss the proposed Crestview
by-pass and the efforts
under way iry Alabama to
create a four-lane highway
from Interstate 65 to
Interstate 10.
The Mayors of Crestview,
Niceville and Andalusia,
Ala., along with representa-
tives of the Florida
Department of
Transportation, the Alabama
Department of
Transportation and the
Florida Turnpike Enterprise
along with members of the
Crestview City Council,
Okaloosa County
Commissioners, presentative
Don Brown, and interested
citizens participated in the
meeting.
Matthew Click the
Intergovernmental Programs


Coordinator for Florida's
Turnpike Enterprise told the
group that "We have been
invited to study the roadway
and we will go ahead and do
that. As we move through
our process all the issues you
have here are local ones and
the decisions that need to be
made are local decisions. But
just because you invite us in
to study a roadway doesn't
mean it's going to be built.
As part of a traffic feasibility
study we will look at four
things. We will identify if
there is a transportation
need that would be met by a
project; which obviously we
think there is. We'll check to
see if the project is financial-
ly feasible. We don't receive
any gas tax or federal or state
dollars so the project would
have to be self-supporting
based on the traffic and rev-
enue that it would generate.
We would have to determine
if the facility would pay half
of its debt service by the
twelfth year of operation

and all of its own debt ser-
vice in the 22nd year. So
what I am telling you is that
for the first 22 years of a new
project you have the rest of
the turnpike system (south
Florida) kind of shoring up
those debt payments. For us
to build a project it has to
meet that twelve and twen-
ty-two year test. The third
thing we look at is environ-
mental suitability. Most
important is local support.
We have never built a project
that was not adopted by the
local MPO/TPO and in the
comprehensive plans of the
political subdivisions we
cross through. If there is not
local support for a tolled
project, then there will not be
a tolled project."
Click did say that they
have already begun gather-
ing data from the FDOT and
expect to complete their
study of the proposed
Crestview by-pass concept
within nine months.
Ed Prescott, District 3
Secretary of the Florida
Department of
Transportation said "There is
no question that a by-pass is
warranted. That's not even
up for debate any more.
There was a lot of discussion
of whether is should go west
of Crestview or east of
Crestview.. Our feasibility
analysis wound up saying it
should go east of Crestview.
There is still a tremendous
amount of discussion here in
Crestview whether we
should try to relieve some
traffic on the west side and
there is some effort now to
use some roads on the west
side like Antioch."
Prescott said, "We did a
PDE (Project Development
Environmental) study back
in 1992. We just don't have
the money to do an engi-
neering design or buy the
right of way or four-lane
highway 85."
Don Vaughn a Deputy
Director of the Alabama
Department of
Transportao-Fsi9' they ',


"wanted to learn what plans
Florida might have because
they are proceeding with
plans to continue making
Alabama highway 55 four
lanes from Andalusia to the
Florida-Alabama state line,
most likely ending at Florala.
We're buying right of way in
the Georgiana area right
now to complete making the
north part of 55 four-lanes all
the way to 1-65. We have
plans to initiate a corridor
study from the state line up
to Andalusia in fiscal 2009."
Vaughn said that
Alabama is also considering
the toll-road concept for a
major project in the Dothan
area.
Andalusia Mayor Jerry
Andrews told the group
"that 30 years ago a group of
people in the Andalusia area
began work on their dream
of connecting 1-65 with 1-10.
It almost became a reality.
But the State of Alabama
would not put up the 10 per-
cent matching funds needed
at that time. I've been told by
people in Florida that a four-
lane road in the central part
of the Florida Panhandle is
critical. Florida has a prob-
lem and it's going to become
more critical for you as we
have more and more hurri-
cane cycles. Alabama, we
believe, has a solution for
you. Our route will be the
shortest route to a four lane
to get people out of here."
Andrews said they have
hired a lobbyist firm to help
them get federal funds and


just met this week with their
Alabama Congressmen to
ask for a speed-up of funds
for the feasibility study to
extend highway 55 from
Andalusia to Florala.
"We need to know what
Florida is doing," Andrews
said. "This can't be an
Andalusa project or a
Crestview project, it has to
be a corridor project. We've
got to come together as a
group and work together as
a group. Who knows what'
kind of hurricane is going to
hit your area and how many
lives are going to be lost.
Alabama doesn't know
where to go or what to do if
it doesn't know what Florida
is doing. Hopefully in this
endeavor we're going to
bring Alabama and Florida
representatives together in
one common purpose."
During the question and
answer session moderated
by Dan Bowers Sr.,
Representative Don Brown
was asked why the Florida
Legislature could not pro-
* vide more money for trans-
portation needs.
"The Governor's pro-
posed budget for this year is
about $70.8 billion dollars,
when I was elected to my
first term in 2000 I think it
was just under $50 billion,"
Brown replied.
"Our revenues are
increasing. There are three
areas that account for over
90 percent of our general
revenue spending.
Education gets 49 percent,


by-pass

Health and Human Services
gets 27 percent and Public
Safety gets 14 percent. And
there are various trust funds.
The fact is that 19 percent of
the total budget gets spent
on transportation. Why only
19 percent for transporta-
tion. It's because con-
stituents in the State of
Florida demand social ser-
vices that are consuming
increasing percentages of
our budget to the point that
if we don't gain control of
them they threaten to equal
the size of the budget today
in another ten or fifteen
years."
Addressing traffic
improvement projects in the
Crestview area,
Representative Brown said
he supported the proposal to
four-lane P.J. Adams and
Antioch Road, but said, "I
absolutely support those
types of improvements that
can be made on an interim
basis, but I also want to be
absolutely clear that I do not
think that solves our prob-
lem, nor do I believe that it
ought to be used as an excuse
not to pursue the bigger solu-
tion. If you as members of
this community that this is
adequate then you tell us (the
Legislative Delegation) but if
you think it is inadequate for
the long term you need to
also be sure to tell us."

North Okaloosa gardening activities outlined by master gardener


Shari Farrell
Okaloosa County Master
Gardener
Special to the News Bulletin

The robins are flying,
blueberries are blooming
and the daffodils.are show-
ing their lovely yellow faces!
It's got to be spring! Though
it is quite possible there will
be another frost or two, gar-
deners all over the North
County area are itching to
get out there and dig in the
dirt. Dirty fingernails and
muddy knees just come nat-
urally to us.
Every spring garden has
its surprises, good and bad.
The beautiful new perennial
purchased last summer
made it through the cold,
and the squirrels found the
tulip bulbs that were going
to be so pretty in another
month. The grasshoppers
are already hopping and
there are those weeds to get
out of there. What happened
to the roses, they don't look


so good! Why does the sago
have curly branches? What
caused the lawn to have the
big ugly brown patches?
Will more fertilizer help?
Gardening can be a frus-
trating pastime, enough to
make one think of giving up
altogether. But wait; don't
go condo shopping just yet,
there is help. Many residents
have found assistance by
inaking the trip to Fort
Walton Beach to attend the
plant clinics held from
March through October at
the Annex on Hollywood
Boulevard. Here in the
North County we don't
have to travel that. far.
Taking a suspicious weed or
particularly strange insect to
the Extension Service on Old
Bethel Road is a bonus.
Lawn problems can be
solved with a shovel full of
sod and help is available
five days a week.
Something new is hap-
pening in Crestview this
spring. There will be Plant


Clinics offered several times
at area "happenings." The
first will be April 8th during
the Crestview's 90th
Anniversary Celebration on
Main Street. On the next
Saturday, April 15th, the
Master Gardeners will be
offering their services at
Sears Garden Day. Another
scheduled clinic will take
place in conjunction with the
Annual Extension Service
Country Store on June 17th.
More may be offered as
the opportunities arise; call
the Extension if you have an
idea where they cdn help.
These are volunteer garden-
ers who enjoy assisting other
gardeners.
Many North County gar-.
deners have attended the
Annual Spring Plant Sale
held by the Okaloosa
County Master Gardeners at
the Fairgrounds in Fort
Walton Beach. This year the
date is Saturday, April 29th.
Propagating, potting and
planning are year round pro-


jects that offer thousands of
plants for the event. Prices
are low and all the Master
Gardeners in the county will
be there to answer questions
and to help you choose the
right plants. Plan to be there
in plenty of time; the sale
opens at 8 a.m.
The Milton Gardens locat-
ed on the PJC Campus on
Hwy. 90 is offering a three
day show and sale of plants
and garden-related items.
The dates for this are March
31 through April 2nd.
Okaloosa County Master
Gardeners will be there with
planted Bog Garden Pots to
choose from, and of course
answer any questions.
Mark your calendar for
all of these Garden Events.
The more interest you show,
the better it will guarantee
more of the same in our area.
In the meantime, make use
of the services offered at the
Extension building; a visit or
phone call is always wel-
come.

Ken Nielsen
News Bulletin Reporter

Larry Boldin, Pastor of the
Striving for Perfection
Church is more than a hearer
of the word, he's a doer of
the word.
Boldin was the guest of
Governor Jeb Bush and for-
mer Secretary of State Colin
Powell recently when he
traveled to Tallahassee to
receive the Florida
Mentoring Partnership
Award of Excellence.
He was nominated by
Superintendent Don Gaetz
and State Representative Ray
Sansom, and selected from
among some 200,000 volun-
teer mentors statewide as the
2005 School and Community
Mentor of the Year Award.
Boldin was recognized
locally for his achievements
by area educators at
Monday's Okaloosa County
School Board meeting.
"For me it is just an
honor," said Boldin.
He attributes the success
of the program to God first
and second to State
Representative Ray Sansom.
Boldin met with Sansom
at the legislator's office in
Tallahassee three years ago,
while he was attending a
faith-based conference at
Florida A&M University.
The meeting almost didn't
happen. Boldin did not have
an appointment and Sansom

Perfection Church, with the 2005 School and
Community Mentor of the Year Award.


wasn't in his office when
Boldin arrived. His staff was
very busy, so Boldin decided
to leave. Just as he was head-
ing out, Sansom walked in
and welcomed him into his
office.
"I'm a firm believer that
when God ordains some-
thing, He'll make it happen,"
smiled Boldin.
Sansom said that during
that first meeting, Boldin
expressed his church's con-
cerns about the number of
African-American students
who were struggling to
achieve the higher academic
standards set by Okaloosa
Schools.


"Instead of asking that
standards be lowered or crit-
icizing the FCAT, he asked"
what he and his congrega-
tion could do to help stu-
dents earn success in
school," said Sansom.
What Boldin did was
become a mentor himself. He
successfully mentored an
academically struggling stu-
dent at Wright Elementary.
Then he took his cause
before his congregation.
"One of the missions of
our church is to make an
impact on our community.
On purpose all of our mem-
bers know when they join
our church, that if they don't


have a heart for the commu-
nity they're probably in the
wrong church," Boldin said.
His congregation adopted
Wright Elementary. They're
currently working with 18
students. Striving for
Perfection members also
now mentor in six other
south county schools.
In 2004, Boldin's Striving
for Perfection Ministries
formed a coalition with the
district and Cox
Communications and spon-
sored the first Okaloosa
Schools Mentoring Telethon.
It recruited over 200 new
mentors. A second telethon
in 2005 increased the number
of mentors Boldin has
recruited to over 500.
"The reason we have been
successful in this endeavor,"
continued Boldin, "is
because we have been obedi-
-ent to God."
Gaetz openly admitted
that at first he was skeptical
about what results a telethon
would produce.
"You made a believer out
of me, you made a believer
out of Governor Bush, and
you made a believer out of
the state of Florida," Gaetz
told Boldin during the award
presentation. "Because of
your leadership and commit-
ment, you're an example to
all school mentoring pro-
grams, not just in the State of
Florida, but throughout the
nation."

Brenda Tucker stands out in her front yard on West Edney Avenue on Friday. Tucker
steps out into the yard several times each day in hopes of finding that her husband
Charles has returned home. He left the house on Feb. 13 to go fishing and has not
returned. The Crestview police are looking into his mysterious disappearance.

MISSING, from page 1


here. His disappearance is
very out of character for
him."
Kirkland said the last time
he saw Tucker at work was on
Feb. 8.
"He had taken a few weeks
of leave time to attend his
mother-in-law's funeral in
Pensacola. He came by on the
8th just long enough to pick
up his check," Kirkland said.
A close friend of the
Tuckers, Regina Roper, agrees


with Brenda and Kirkland
that Tucker's disappearance
is out of character.
"He loved his clothes and
liked looking nice," said
Roper. "He was a real sharp
dresser. It's not like Charles to
go away without taking some
of his clothes. I think he
planned on coming home that
day."
The Crestview police have
entered a description of
Tucker and his vehicle into a
nationwide law enforcement
database in hopes that it will
produce some lead into his
whereabouts.
"Right now we have no
evidence to lead us to believe
that foul play is involved,"
said Crestview police investi-
gator Matt Purvines. "We
have interviewed neighbors
and co-workers. Right now
it's just a mystery as to where
Mr. Tucker is."
Earlier this week police
searched an area around the


Shoal River boat launch just
east of Fairchild Road.
"We didn't find anything
that even indicated he was
there," said Purvines. "That's
where Mrs. Tucker thinks he
was going to fish on the 13th.
But we're not sure really
where he was going."
The police are asking for
help from the community
with information about
Charles' disappearance.
A 5-foot-8 inch black male
with black hair and brown
eyes, he was last seen wear-
ing a beige shirt and pants
and a zipper jacket. He had a
burgundy lunch bag and a
fishing rod and reel.
He drives a 1987 brown
Chrysler four door with
the rear passenger window
broken out. The Florida
license plate reads D90 9BS.
Anyone with information
about Charles Tucker is asked
to call the Crestview police at
682-3603.

IAetrcanfield outlook


Crestvlew

Coach: Ernie Martin (12th sea-
son at Crestview).
2006 district and opponents:
District 2-3A with Bay, Chiles,
Choctawhatchee, Fort Walton
Beach, Leon, Lincoln, Mosley and Rutherford.
2005 results: Boys finished ninth in District 2-
3A; Girls finished ninth in District 2-3A.

Outlook
Crestview faces some tough district competi-
tion, but Martin thinks the Bulldogs will perform
better in 2006 after going through some growing
pains in 2005. "I've been impressed with the
work ethic of this bunch, even more so than
some of the championship teams we've had,"
Martin said. "This team, from Day 1 of tryouts,
has come ready to work. Hopefully they'll get to
reap the benefits of their hard work." Martin has
about 20 athletes to work with on both the boys
and girls squads. He thinks both teams should
be competitive through all of the events. "Pick
one section out? I couldn't do it," he said. "1
wouldn't miss any of the races or field events,
because it could be that competitive this year."

James Hill's boys breakdown
General outlook: "I think we're going to do
pretty decent this year, probably better than we
did last year.
What are the team strengths?: "I haven't
gotten to see the distance people run because
they always go off and run on their own. But I
know we have some pretty fast sprinters, so I
think that will be a pretty good strong point."
What meet do you try to peak for?: "District
meet is probably the place where you are going
to get your best times. Everyone strives to do
well there because if you make it in the top four
there, you make it on to regional and then maybe
to state"'
What was the most fun moment of your
track and field career?: "Probably during meets
when you get to hang out and talk and wait for
your event. It's fun to sit there and talk about stuff."
What is the most tired you have been after
a track and field activity?: "After my leg of the
4x400 relay during the district meet last year. I
was so tired I wanted to collapse on the field right
then and there. But I knew I couldn't, because I
had to get on the bus."

Brittainy Luke's
girls breakdown
General outlook: "I think we are going to be
decent. We are a small team, and if we had more'
numbers we could be better."
What are .the team strengths?: "For the
girls, I think it will be the distance events."
What meet do you try to peak for?:
"Everyone wants to go to state and we're going to
work as hard as we can to hopefully make it there."
What was the most fun moment of your
tra~sl;pd fied.rm.f r?;."On.the bup on the way
home from the district meet and other big meets.
SEverfne will start rapping and Coach Martin will
join in. It's funny to sit there and watch him try to
rap like everyone else."
What is the most tired you have been after
a track and field activity?: "One time when I
ran the mile two years ago, I couldn't even finish
it. I fell over and passed out. I really just remem-
ber waking up in the infield and people standing
around me asking what was wrong."

Baker
Coach: David Oglesby (first
season at Baker)
2006 district and opponents:
District 1-1A with Central, Dr.
Gainer (girls only), Escambia
Charter (boys only), Freeport, Jay, Paxton,
Pensacola Christian (girls only) and South
Walton
2005 results: Boys finished sixth in District 1-
1A; Girls finished seventh in District 1-1A, 13th in
Region 1-1A and 43rd at the FHSAA Class 1A
state finals.

Outlook
Baker has 40 athletes between its boys and
girls teams, a number that should allow the
Gators to be competitive at the Class 1A level.
"They're working like Baker kids, which means
they are working hard," Oglesby said. Oglesby
has beefed up the Gators' schedule and practice
workouts, and hopes to see a positive payoff.
Freshman Kali Flanders looks to build on her
state finals appearance in the 400 last season.
Oglesby also looks for contributions from ath-
letes like Presley Maki, Sam Langley, Russell
Scott and Chad Lawhon (distance), Marcus
Jones, Josh Beck and Kendria Young (sprints)
and Ben Griffith (jumps). Britney Ferris "has
shown a lot of guts" running the 800.

Josh Beck's boys breakdown
General outlook: "Things are looking better,
but I need to work on getting faster."
What are the team strengths?: "It's about
the same for everything. We've got good dis-
tance runners, and we've got good sprinters."
What meet do you try to peak for?:
"Probably the Justin Gatlin meet at Woodham (in
Pensacola). Coach Oglesby says that's the
biggest meet we'll see, so I would say that one."
What was the most fun moment of your
track and field career?: "I can't think of one off
the top of my head, but practices can be the
least fun."
What is the most tired you have been after
a track and field activity?: "Probably on
Monday, because those are our hardest prac-
tices. We have to do a 600 and then a 400 and
then a 200 and then another 600."

Kali Flanders' girls breakdown
General outlook: "I think it's looking pretty
good right now. We have a lot of girls out here
and they're all working really hard."
What are the team strengths?: "We have a
lot of really good sprinters, and we have a lot of
good girls in the mile. So you never know.
Hopefully we'll be great at everything."
What meet do you try to peak for?:
"Definitely the state meet for me, and hopefully
everyone will get to state. But hopefully, by the
.district; everyone will be experienced Jkag ow
what they need to doo. p.erforM wIl ... ,"
What was the most fun moment of your
track and field career?: "When I went to state
last year. I was running against a lot of older girls
and I had my coaches there with me. It was a
really good experience and I want to go back this
year."
What is the most tired you have been after
a track and field activity?: "After my first prac-
tice out here with Coach Oglesby. Let me tell you
what, he pushes us hard."

Flanders shocked herself
with her success last spring.
She finished second in the
400 in the district meet and
second at the regional to earn
her trip to the state finals.
"I was surprised,"
Flanders said. "I didn't really
think about going to state. It
all happened so quickly. It


was a surprise, but I really
enjoyed it."
First-year Baker coach
David Oglesby counts on con-
sistent points from Flanders in
her specialty this year.
"I'm looking for big things.
from her," Oglesby said. "I
think she's going to come out
and do well."


Flanders stays on the run
during the entire school year.
She competes in cross coun-
try and volleyball during the
fall. Basketball during the
winter. Softball and track and
field during the spring.
She enjoys the most suc-
cess on the track one lap at
a time.

FHSAA Boys Basketball Class 1A State Semfllinals: Lake Mary Prep 75, LaurellHll 70 (OTI


Ken Nielsen/The News Bulletin
Lake Mary Prep defenders gang up on Laurel Hill senior forward Brad Reese (1) du
Class 1A state semifinals Wednesday in The Lakeland Center.


Hoboes' Shipman sai



his best game for la'


Senior guard

scores 28 points
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

LAKELAND Lake
.- Mary Prep boys basketball
coach Matt Benefiel's scout-
ing report on Laurel Hill had
plenty of material about
Hobo standouts Brad and
Jeffery Reese.
Benefiel didn't say much
to his team about LHS senior
guard Trey Shipman as the
Griffins prepared for their
FHSAA Class 1A state semifi-
nal against the Hoboes.
Benefiel had plenty to say
about Shipman all of it
good after No. 2 Lake
Mary Prep edged No. 4
Laurel Hill 75-70 in overtime
on Wednesday in The
Lakeland Center.
Shipman sank 5 of 7 shots
from 3-point range and
scored a season-high 28
points to push the Hoboes to
the brink of victory.
"We didn't expect that
from Shipman," Benefiel
said. "He hit some great
shots. We had a guy draped
on him and that kid still
would hit fadeaways with a
man in his face."
Shipman made six straight
shots in a hot stretch span-
ning the third and fourth
quarters. Laurel Hill coach
Kent Zessin said Shipman
made his last game a memo-
rable one.
"That was probably
Trey's best game I've ever
seen him play in the six or
seven years I've been coach-
ing him," Zessin said. "You
could tell he wanted this
game badly."

Big time
Laurel Hill shot 27 percent
from the field in the first half.
Some of the Hoboes thought
the unfamiliar surroundings
in the cavernous Lakeland
Center threw off their aim at
the start of the game.


Notes

The entire LHS gymnasi-
um probably would fit
between the basket and the
shooting background in The.
Lakeland Center.
"It's a big gym a lot dif-
ferent from Laurel Hill but
you've just got to focus
more," LHS senior standout
Brad Reese said. "We had
some shots roll off and not
bounce our way. I missed a
couple of easy shots, but I'm
not going to blame it on
that."
Lake Mary Prep didn't
shoot much better in the first
half (30 percent), but not
because of a lack of experi-
ence in big arenas. The
Griffins played two regular
season games in the Orlando
Magic's T.D. Waterhouse
Center over the last three
years.
The surroundings in The
Lakeland Center suited the
Griffins' Anthony Balsam
just fine.
Balsam sank 5 of 10 shots
from 3-point range on his
way to 17 points
"I was shooting well in
warmups, and when I shoot
well in warmups, I shoot
well in the game," Balsam
said. "I feel I can shoot well
anywhere. When we played
in the T.D. Waterhouse
Center, I shot well there,
too."

Foul play
Attrition took a toll on the
Hoboes late in the game.
Shipman committed his
fifth foul with 33 seconds
remaining in overtime. LHS
could have used Shipman's
hot hand when it needed a 3-
pointer to tie on its next two
possessions.
"The leadership he brings
to the court as far as what he
shows when he is playing is
irreplaceable," Zessin said.
"The way he was shooting
the ball, it might have made a
difference."

FHSAA Boys Basketball Class 1A State Semifinals: Lake Mary Prep 75, Laurel Hill 70 (OT)





Hobo heartbreak


Free throw woes haunt

Laurel Hill in OT loss


Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

LAKELAND Laurel
*Hill's boys basketball team
got caught up in a free throw
contest with some of the
sharpest shots in all of
Florida on Wednesday dur-
ing the FHSAA Class 1A state
semifinals.
The Hoboes held their
ground for 37 minutes before
falling victim to Lake Mary
Prep's collection of marks-
men.
The second-ranked
Griffins shot fourth-ranked
Laurel Hill out of the post-
season with a 75-70 victory in
The Lakeland Center.
Lake Mary Prep (32-0)
advanced to the Class 1A title
game because it hit all eight
of its free throw attempts in
:the overtime. LHS (28-2) saw
its 20-game winning streak
end because it missed five
..charity tosses in the fourth
quarter.
"Definitely it was the free
throws late," Laurel Hill
coach Kent Zessin said. "We
had several chances in the
fourth quarter to probably
put it away with our free
throws, and we came up
short. That is uncharacteristic
of us. We're a pretty good
free throw shooting team.
Tonight, the ball just didn't
roll the way it should roll.
"They stayed in it and we
went to overtime and they
hit their free throws in over-
time. That was the differ-
ence."
Zessin spent the postsea-
son saying free throws and
turnovers would prove deci-
sive in tight games if his team
reached the late stages of the
playoffs.
Free throws and turnovers
did in the Hoboes in their
most important game of the
year.
Laurel Hill's players and
coaches had to spend the
long drive home from
Lakeland thinking about
their not-bad, but not-good-
enough 14 of 22 effort from
the free throw line, including
the five late misses.
The Hoboes also spent the
bus ride rehashing their 25
turnovers, enough to negate

any advantage they might
have gained by forcing 26
Griffin errors
"Any time you're playing
in a tough game like that, it
goes down to what I've said
all year," Zessin said. "Free
throws and turnovers."
Lake Mary Prep took the
lead for good at 69-68 when
Eddie Stafford sank a pair of
free throws with 1:21 remain-
ing in overtime.
The Griffins would go on
to score on their last four pos-
sessions, all on free throws.
The Hoboes came up empty
on four of their last five pos-
sessions.
"There was nothing spe-
cial .or brilliant .about-. what
we'did at ffi0iid7,99id Lake
Mary Prep coach Matt
Benefiel, who did tweak his
offense in the second half to
keep the ball in the hands of
his top guards.
"If we've got a one or two
possession lead with the ball
and can force the other team
to foul, we do hit free
throws well. The only thing
I was worried about was
holding on to the basket-
ball.' '
Control of both the ball
and the game swayed back
and forth from the outset.
Laurel Hill had a size
advantage. Lake Mary Prep
countered with a stylish, 3-
point happy offense. The
Griffins didn't pass up any
pass they could pass, or any
shot they could shoot.
Anthony Balsam drained
five 3-pointers and scored 17
points for Lake Mary Prep.

sophomore, provided an

Flanders ready for run at state title


Baker runner placed 7th
at 2005 FHSAA meet
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

BAKER -Kali Flanders makes her
mark in Florida's track and field
scene one lap at a time.
Flanders placed seventh in the 400
at the 2005 FHSAA Class 1A state
meet as an eighth grader.
Flanders enters her freshman year
in the Baker track and field program
ready for another run at a state title.
"I want to go back and do better,"
Flanders said. "There were so many
girls there and it kind of intimidated
me at first. But I told myself, you
know what you can do. And I went
out and did it."


-- Track and field -
Flanders started turning laps as a
youth under the watchful eye of her
father, Jack.
"When I was little, my daddy told
me he wanted me to go to the
Olympics one day," Kali said. "Ever
since I was in kindergarten, I would
run in Field Day and beat all the
other little girls.
"I've always wanted to be a run-
ner."
Flanders naturally gravitated to
the 400, even though she sees the
one-lap race as the toughest event in
track and field.
"It's one time around and you
have to sprint the whole thing and
you have to have the heart and guts
to gut it out and finish strong," she
said.


See previews of the Crestview
and Baker boys and girls track and
field programs on Page 6

Then she adds: "I like the 400."
Flanders typically leads wire to
wire in the smaller meets. She mar-
shals her energies for strong finishes
over the last 200 meters in the big
events.
"I try to start strong, finish strong,
sprint everything, and do everything
as well as I can," she said. "During
meets, I usually try to pull ahead at
the end. Sprint out at the 200 mark
and give it all I've got for the last
100."
