Local law enforcement warning: Beware of post-holiday theft


Adam Ziglar
Crestview News Bulletin
So how are you liking your new
widescreen television? From the
looks of the box sitting by the
Waste Management trash contain-
er, the stereo you got for
Christmas must sound great.
Law officials warn area resi-
dents to avoid leaving boxes of
high-priced Christmas items out-
side.
"One of the biggest mistakes
people can make is to put out
boxes of high-priced items like


electronics," Michele Nicholson,
public information officer for the
Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office.
"It's almost like they have an
inventory of all your high-priced
items inside your house," she con-
tinued. "They don't even have to
break in to see what you've just
recently purchased."
Nicholson said thieves are look-
ing for crimes of opportunity this
time of the year.
Her best advice is to cut up old
boxes and dispose them in dump-
sters, or leave them in your house
until you can carry them off to a


local landfill or until the morning
that your trash is serviced.
Nicholson also warns students
who are returning to school within
the week to avoid taking their new
iPods and other electronic devices
with them.
"Students for the most part are
not supposed to bring iPods to
school anyway," she said.
"I've seen numerous reports of
students taking their iPods or
other small electronic devices to
school only to lose them or have
them stolen.
"Some of those nice Christmas


items need to stay at home at a
safe place, not at school."
Some area residents make it too
easy to lure the eyes of a thief.
Leaving car doors unlocked or
leaving valuable possessions
inside cars is a common mistake
that makes some residents victims
of theft.
"It sounds like common sense
advice, but you'd be amazed at
how many people are getting
things stolen out of their cars
when they don't lock their doors,"
Nicholson said.
"If you have any nice Christmas

Crestview News Bulletin

Homelessness exists every-
where, even in Crestview.
Along Crestview's darkened
fringes, huddled beneath the
canopies of pine trees that loiter
closely alongside the Interstate 10
interchange, homelessness is
prevalent.
A "tent city," as labeled by
many law enforcement officials, is
rooted along the rights of way and
drifters congregate.
On any given day, two or three
homeless people can be found
holding cardboard signs and sit-
ting in a tuft, awaiting some loose
change.
James Nelson, a middle-aged
man, has been homeless off and
on since he was 13. Now 42, the
man originally from Missouri has
no place to call home, no direc-
tion.
Nelson, like a leftover, mis-
placed character from one of Jack
Kerouac's idealistic "Beat" novels,
is a diesel mechanic. His last job
was in Theodore, Ala., working at
a salvage yard.
However, after cutting his
hands one too many times on
metal parts, he left and returned
to the highway.


Passing through Crestview one
recent afternoon, he pitched his
tent along a balding wood line in
front of the Hooters Restaurant,
pulled out a cardboard sign and
meandered across the street of the
Interstate 10 eastbound off ramp.
He unloaded a hefty satchel
packed with all his earthly belong-
ings, a sleeping bag that allows
him to withstand subzero temper-
atures, some clothes and other
items he doesn't care to mention.
He plopped the bag on the
ground, a few feet from the grav-
el, and waited.
The stereotype applies; alcohol
caterwauls from his breath.
Nelson, tottering to his feet,
bragged about his "chosen"
lifestyle.
"A lot of people can't live like
this," he said, while speaking
through gaps of forked teeth and
dark gums.
Nelson stood by the roadway.
As cars came to a halt, he waved,
cutting a tear in his thoughts and
severing the conversation about
his past.
He kindly greeted Crestview
Police K-9 Officer Matt Purvines,
who frequently checks the "hot
spots" where homeless people loi-
ter.
Purvines asked to see Nelson's


identification.
"Man, you know me," he said,
his words warbled and bent.
"Yeah, I know you," Purvines
said calmly.
Nelson sat with a fellow travel-
er, Terri Schempp, an Oregon
native who was traveling from
south Florida to Pensacola, where
she'll stay at a safe house through
the Christmas holidays.
"A friend of mine over there is
a pastor," she said. "He has a
place that I can stay."
Finding his original thought,
Nelson interrupted. He was
explaining how he spent nearly 12
years in prison for stealing 150
cars.
"I got out in '94 and I've been
dean since," he' said. "I ain't
afraid to admit it. I did my time."
Homeless transients like
Nelson are on the move. If local
police officers get complaints, they
make them move on. The local
homeless population has never
been large enough to enforce ordi-
nances that restrict loitering.
Yvonne Franklin helps arrange
"cold night" shelters in Okaloosa
County.
Currently there are no shelters
in Crestview.
"There never have been, to my
knowledge," Franklin said recent-


ly, when asked about shelters in
the Crestview area.
While there are about seven
shelters in the Fort Walton area -
all in churches Franklin would
like to see more, even in
Crestview.
"These people need help,
regardless of your feelings about
why they are in the condition
they're in," she said.
Dorothy Hobbs, vice-president
of Crestview's social service food
pantry, Sharing & Caring, said the
need to help Crestview's neediest
homeless residents, transients or
permanent, is growing.
"We had more than 700 people
come to get food assistance last
month," Hobbs said recently
about people seeking help in
November.
Food pantry volunteers can't
put a number on the homeless
subculture in Crestview, but there
are some telltale signs that point
to an ever-growing problem.
"We've had homeless people
come in for blankets and tell us
that they nearly froze to death the
previous night," said Hobbs.
"Nobody should have to sleep in
that kind of situation."
To keep warm, one homeless

gifts, don't leave them in you car."
Nicholson also gives advice on
some quick safety tips.
Write down serial and model
numbers and hold on to receipts to
those high priced items. If it does
get pawned that will make it easi-
er for law enforcement officials to
track down those items.
Avoid leaving boxes from
Christmas gifts out by the road.
The boxes are essentially an inven-
tory to what is inside the house.
Avoid leaving ,car doors
unlocked and do not leave high-
priced items in the car.


Area kids


get special


police visit

John Parrott
News Bulletin Military Reporter

The day could not have been
more perfect.
Santa Claus's helpers, disguised
as Crestview police officers and
volunteers paid a visit to approxi-
mately 150 Crestview children on
Saturday.
Many of the kids were shocked,
surprised, and even skeptical when
a police cruiser pulled up to their
front door with lights flashing and
siren blaring.
All that changed quickly as they
saw the follow-on trailers loaded
with toys.
More than $1,500 of toys and
stuffed animals were distributed
on the day.
The program, often called "Cops
for Kids," was begun more than 10
years ago by Crestview Police
Officer Bill Napier, who patrolled
public housing.
"He saw there were an awful lot
of families struggling to make ends
meet, and he decided to do some-
thing about it," said Lt. Wayne
Grandstaff, friend of the popular
officer who passed away two years
ago.
"We've been carrying it on tra-
dition ever since, and it just keeps
growing," said Grandstaff, who
added, "Last year we supported 67
kids, and this year we have nearly
150."
Grandstaff is himself a 20-year
Crestview police force veteran and
native. He is also one of the prima-
ry supporters of the current Cops
for Kids program. It is obvious he
enjoys this type of police work and
is of fond of saying, "Trust starts
here, with the children."
Unlike other local police chari-
ties, this one does not take cash
donations. It is entirely supported
by the goodwill of the community
through drives and individual
donations. It is also a continual
endeavor, and those wishing to
support cops for children may drop
off toys or stuffed animal dona-
tions at the police department at
anytime, or give them to any police
officer.
"A lot of what we get comes
through corporate donations, and I
have to say if it wasn't for Wal-

People can realign the meaning of Christmas


My mother- and father-
in-law usually treat my wife
and me to a nice dinner
around Christmas time.
This past Saturday, we
ate at a hibachi-style
Japanese restaurant in
Destin. The food was good,
and, thankfully, I was on the
other end of the table when
I saw my father-in-law gri-
mace at the sight of the bill.
These hibachi restaurants
used to set my nerves on
edge. If you've ever eaten at
one, you know what rm
talking about.
The cook, standing
between you and a sizzling .
skillet the size of a pool
table, twirls and flips knives
and other sharp utensils.
Occasionally, like an off
course cue ball, the knives
fly. Don't panic; these cooks
are professionals. They can
make volcanoes out of
sliced onions and vegetable
oil and do other entertain-
ing tricks you shouldn't do
in your own kitchen.
The dinner experience,
sitting around a square
table, also usually includes
sharing elbow space with
total strangers.
After Saturday, I have a
newfound respect for the
traditional communal din-
ner.

New rules mean schools must work harder to make A's


The Florida Department
of Education recently
released tough new guide-
lines for school grades in the
2006-07 school yea which
will make it more difficult for
schools to earn 'A' ratings,
compared to the past few
years.

demonstrate learning gains
in both math and reading.
Last year the state measured
the progress of the lowest
performing students in the
reading portion alone.
Students are considered to
have made learning gains in
one of three ways:
if they improve their
FCAT level (from a 1 to a 2, or
a 2 to a 3);


if they remain at one of
the higher levels (3,4 or 5); or
if they demonstrate
more than one years
progress within an achieve-
ment level of 1 or 2.
Another challenge this
year is that the science por-
tion of the FCAT will count
toward the school grades for
the first time. Students in 5th
grade, 8th grade and 11th


grade are required to take the
science FCAT, while students
in grades 3-10 are required to
take the math and reading
portions of the FCAT.
"Realistically, we proba-
bly won't make as many 'A's'
as we've received in the
past," states Guyla
Hendricks, the District?s
Chief Officer of Quality
Assurance.


Members of the Crestview Police Department gather with area youngsters in an effort to
make a Merry Christmas for many other local youngsters.

restaurant Saturday night.
We sat next to a couple from
Chalmette, a community in
St. Bernard Parish, which
sits on the New Orleans rim.
The couple, Gary and
Donna, looked young,
maybe in their mid 40s. A
question from my camp
darted their way:
"So are you here for the
Christmas?"
"Yeah, we love it here."
My scallops were ready.
A stainless steel canopy
hovered above us and the
giant skillet, and hissed,
sucking the air out of the
room.
"Are you from New
Orleans?"
"All my life," Gary said
with an unmistakable Cajun
swivel in his voice.
We swept around the
conversation rug for most of
the dinner until everyone
pushed slightly away from
the table and stretched deep
and wide. Dinner was over.
The room settled. Bowing,


the cook put down his
weapons.
"So, do you guys have
any kids?"
My father-in-law wanted
to know more; so did I.
Why did this married cou-
ple come to Destin for
Christmas? What was so
special about the RV park
and the beach that made
them leave their home for
the holidays?
"No. We had a daughter,
but she passed away a few
years ago. That's why we're
here," Gary said weakly,
like he was confessing a
secret sin.
Donna spoke audibly for
the first time.
"We retreat this time
every year."
Their only daughter,
Kristen, was killed in a car
accident about four or five
years ago around Christmas
time. She was driving one
night when she lost control
of her vehicle. She wasn't
wearing her seatbelt; the car,
according to Gary, didn't
look like it had been
involved in a fatal wreck.
All the bolts loosened
and Donna started to cry, all
the while maintaining an
unbelievable smile. While
wiping mascara from her
eyelids, she apologized for
wrecking the post-dinner


yawn, the lethargic spell
that tangled the evening,
hovering under the canopy.
Moments like that change
things. They had undergone
such hardship.
They continued to tell us
that as a result offlurricane
Katrina, they lost their
livelihood, a hardware store.
Their home filled with
water. They were displaced
for months. They reopened
their business in April, sev-
eral months after Katrina
wreaked havoc along the
Gulf Coast. They still haggle
with their insurance compa-
ny, but thankfully, have had
one of the best financial
years since opening their
business.
"Hey, at least we weren't
in the jewelry business,"
Gary said, lightening the
mood.
Despite their losses, they
seem to have maintained an
unbridled amount of faith
and integrity. By the end of
dinner, we laid down our
arms; neck hugs and firm
handshakes were:
exchanged. "God bless you"
was spoken, and meant.
Illumined and silent, we
returned to the north coun-
try; they returned to their
RV park.
For me, Christmas hap-
pened Saturday night.














OPINION & EDITORIAL

Accepting


responsibility

There 'is an
old axiom that My
states that one is Opnion
responsible for
his own actions, B
whether they are
acts of commis- Allen
sion or of omis-
sion. Further, a
corollary to that sage advice is that one must
pay the price, or reap the benefits, for actions
taken. Put another way, and to quote my
dear grandmother who left this world sever-
al decades ago, "The way you make your
bed is the way you lie in it."
Another wise woman, my mother, went to
great pains to teach my brother and me that
not only were we responsible for our actions,'
but that we had no right to call on others to
"bail" us out if we made a mistake.
In the last week and a half, I had the
opportunity to sit in council chambers and
listen to Florida Turnpike officials tell city
administrators that there is a traffic problem
on State Route 85, and to get on with a fix!
Further, they stated quite properly that this
is Crestview's problem, that the state has
spent considerable money evaluating the sit-
uation, and that at this time there is no way
that a turnpike around the city can be justi-
fled.
As I sat listening to the report, Oma's gem
of wisdom echoed in my head. I thought to
myself, if some action had been taken several
years ago, we wouldn't be in the situation
now. But, by an act of omission, of doing
nothing and allowing development in a
small, concentrated area, we now find our-
selves with snarled traffic that will not be
easily eliminated.
Now, this is not an attempt to discredit the
current council members, albeit that one
council member has been in place for several
decades, one has been in office for a dozen or
more years, and a third is soon to complete
her eighth year in office, or put another way,
sixty percent of the membership has been
around long enough to have done something
about the situation before now. To be honest,
this problem has been growing, and previous
councils and various staff members, if they
were visionaries, should have seen this com-
0m g- "a iliw iea onl-t,, r "J to" :t'.
As I sat in the above-mentioned meeting. I T
"a1so asked myself why is it thatthe city goes -
elsewhere to get some outside agency to find
Sa solution to an in-house dilemma. Why is it
that we have career employees who are pos-
sibly perceived as not being capable of for-
mulating plausible solutions? Similarly, why
is it that every time a situation arises, the
solution often voiced is to seek a grant from
the state? After all, its the state's money, not
ours!
In my opinion, the city administrators
need to become proactive, to become vision-
aries, and to accept responsibility for acts of
commission or omission. We cannot afford to
place blame on others, or even look to others
for fixes to our problems. Many of the prob-
lems facing Crestview have spawned right
here at home; they are not somebody else's
to fix!
By the way, Happy New Year! I envision
2007 being very exciting in Crestview!

the lame duck session
recently concluded.
Most of the appropria-
tion bills have not

Republicans decided
they were not going to

up and let the
Democrats worry about
them in 2007. Congress
passed a Continuing
Resolution (CR), which
limits all funding pro-
grams to what was spent
last year. The proper
legislative approach
would have been to
bring these bills up, all
of which had passed the
House, and most of
which are set for confer-
ence. This could have
been done by the
Congress staying in ses-
sion and would have
been better for the coun-

now dumped the spend-
ing issue into the
Democrats' lap and
early next year will
point out how the
Democrats are breaking

ing the deficit. This is
not a legislative strategy
that anyone can be
proud of. Perhaps when
the new Congress is

bers willtake a minute
and remember that they
are not swearing an oath
to the Republican or
Democrat Party, but to
our Constitution.
Perhaps if they remem-
ber this we will get peo-
ple working together for
the good of the country
and not the good of a
party. This is my holi-
day wish.

Resolve to pay down your debt in 2007


' Jason Alderman
Special to the News
Bulletin

I've learned the hard
way that although New
Year's resolutions can
be a great way to make
a fresh start, if you set
unrealistic goals they'll
likely fizzle out after a
few months. Sometimes
small steps are the
answer, building
momentum as you go.
Not surprisingly, the
number one resolution
for many people is pay-
ing off debt.
Unfortunately, without
the willpower to stop
accruing new debt
while paying off the
old, this effort can fail.
If you're determined to
clear up debt and can
set responsible spend-
ing habits, these
approaches just might
work for you:
Make a budget and
sfick to it. This is the
best thing you can do to
control your finances,
but it's hard to do
alone. Money maga-
zine's Web site,
www.money.cnn.com/p


f/101, contains a
detailed overview for
setting financial goals.
And Practical Money
Skills for Life
(www.practical-
moneyskills.com/bud-
geting), a free personal
financial management
site sponsored by Visa
USA, features a guide to
creating a budget you
can live with, along
with interactive budget-
ing tools.
Targeted payoffs.
If you owe money on
several accounts, list all
outstanding balances
and their corresponding
interest rates. Each
month, pay the mini-
mum amount due on
each account except for
the one with the highest
rate. Pay as much as
you possibly can on that
account until it's paid
off, then move to the
next-highest-interest
loan, and so on. This is
the only time you
should ever pay the
minimum due, because
that can add years to
payoff times. But your
sense of accomplish-
ment at paying off

may inspire you to kick
it up a notch. Just be
sure to retire those high-
er-rate cards and only
use them for true emer-
gencies; otherwise,
you'll be back where
you started.
Consolidate debt.
Sometimes it makes
sense to open a new
credit card with a very
low interest rate to pay
off other cards.
Carefully examine all
the terms, however:
Low rates sometimes
skyrocket.after an intro-
ductory period and
additional fees can
drive up overall costs.
Tap savings. Most
experts recommend
keeping three- to six-
months' pay in easily
accessible savings
accounts or short-term
CDs for emergencies.
But, if you've saved
more than that, you
could be losing money
in the long run. Say you
have $10,000 in savings
earning 3 percent inter-
est, but have $5,000 in
credit card debt at 18
percent. You're paying

interest as you're earn-
ing plus, interest earn-
ings are taxable.
Caution: Only try this if
you absolutely won't
use it as an excuse to
rack up new debt you
worked hard to save
that money. And don't
close out a CD early for
this purpose you'll pay
a penalty that will void
possible debt savings.
Home equity
loans/lines of credit. In
recent years, many peo-
ple have used these
tools to consolidate debt
because they offer lower
interest rates than credit
cards and interest may
be an income tax write
off. However, recent
downturns in the hous-
ing market and interest
rate increases make this
a riskier strategy, so
check with a financial
advisor before pursu-
ing.
Resolutions are never
easy if they were, we'd
already be doing them.
But the long run, paying
off debt and getting a
fresh start is.well worth
the effort.

Information taken from actual law
enforcement reports, compiled by
ADAM ZIGLAR.


Catching the candy
caper
Recently, a deputy was
flagged down by a man who
was walking along one of
Crestview's roads. According
to the arrest report, the man
ran toward the deputy wav-
ing at him.
The deputy slowed his
vehicle and, according to the
report, the man held up an
item that appeared to be
crack cocaine.
The deputy asked the man
what he had. He replied,
"What, this?" and displayed
a red metal crack pipe. He
then handed it to the deputy
and said that he found it on
the side of the road.
The deputy then asked the
man to reveal what was in
his left hand. According to
his report, he grabbed the
man's hand and asked him to
open it. The man opened his
hand and revealed a rolled
up piece of chewing gum.
The deputy then told the
man that he was detained
and asked if he had anything
else in his possession.
Any Laffy Taffy? Any
Skittles? What about a pack
of Nerds? You know, those
things will rot out your teeth.
The man then became eva-
sive. Apparently, he desper-
ately needed to go to the den-
tist, but he wasn't going to go
without a fight. He then
grabbed the crack pipe from
the deputy and fled.
However, the deputy caught
up with him and took him
into custody, recovered the
pipe and arrested the man.
The pipe was tested positive
for the presence-of cocaine
and possible dust from pixie
straws.


Chaotic candle
lighting
Here's two people who
won't be invited to the next
Yankee Candle party.
On one recent stormy day,
the electricity shut off at a
local residence. One of the
women wanted to light up
the house, so she got out
some candles and lit them.
That's when the fight began.


The homeowner told the
other woman, who was
apparently not a close friend,
that she didn't allow candles
to be burnt in her home. The
candle lighter was irritated
and lit the candles anyway.
The two started arguing
and the candle lighter kicked
the other woman in the stom-
ach.
The anti-candle woman
then jumped to her feet and,
according to the sheriff's
office report, "the fight was
on."
The two women began
fighting. However, they were
careful to not knock over any
of the lit candles.
The fight ensued. The
deputies arrived. The candle
lighter left the home and was
later arrested because she
was the main aggressor in
the altercation.
This just goes to show that
you can do all sorts of things
by the warm glow of candle-
light.

The 19th time is the
charm
People can get away with
just about anything these
days. Here's a prime exam-
ple. An inmate at the jail was
recently arrested by a sher-
iff's deputy after his dis-
obeyed the jail's governing
rules for the 19th time this
year.
Yes, that's right.
Apparently, if you're an
inmate, you can be an arro-
gant jerk 19 times before the
rules in the jail's handbook
actually apply.
Apparently, this inmate
didn't read--his handbook-
that he was given, whden~
incarcerated. The rules are all
in there. So for the last few
months, he's consistently dis-
obeyed and smarted off to
guards. And all along, he's
complained that "the guards
just want to mess him up."
So after the 19th time, the
guards at the jail will hope-
fully have some relief. The
deputy filed a warrant for
the inmate's arrest, so addi-
tional charges will be added
to the ones that got him in
the slammer in the first place.

Ask Jane


10 tips for a


safer home


environment


Dear Jane,
With all of these holiday
horror stories, do you have any
suggestions for avoiding break-
ins, fires, etc? I want to feel
safe, especially since many of
my relatives will be staying
with me.
Marilyn L.

Dear Marilyn,
Great question! Here is
our list of must-dos. If your
home is not completely up
to par, don't worry. Many of
these repairs you can do
yourself.

Check your Locks
Making sure you have
sturdy locks is crucial to the
safety of your home and
family.
If your locks are hard to
operate, loose or showing
wear and tear, replace them.
Installing a few locks or
deadbolts is a fairly easy
project that will take less
than an hour in most cases.

Windows and Doors
Make an assessment of
your home's windows and
doors. If they are particular-
ly old, flimsy or hollow,
replace them as soon as pos-
sible. This will help your
heating bills, too!

Keep it Lit
Motion sensor lights are a
superb method for repelling
burglars, and with a price
tag of $15-and-up, you really
have no excuse not to install
a few around your home. If
you don't have any electrical
source near the point of,
installation,.take heart as
there are a number 6f mod-
els that work on battery or
solar power.

Cause for Alarm
Most homes these days
come equipped with smoke
detectors, but have you
checked yours lately? Smoke
and carbon dioxide detectors
should be tested once a
month. If yours are more
than five years old, you may
want to consider replacing
them especially if they're
battery operated units. Be
sure the family knows your
escape route in case a fire
does break out.


Get your fireplace cleaned
We all love a warm fire on
a cold day, but if your chim-
ney hasn't been cleaned
within the last year, you are
potentially living with a
major fire hazard. Make an
annual chimney inspection
and cleaning a priority,
scheduling it for the same
time every year so you'll
remember to get it done.

Take a hold of Mold
Everyone has noticed a
littlemoldon their.bread,... ,
but when. it is all over your... ,
home you might have a seri-
ous problem. If you are see-
ing or smelling mold in your
home, tackle it right away.

Peepholes
Peepholes are cheap and
easy to install: all you need
is a drill and a screwdriver.
After you pick up a peep-
hole at your local home
improvement center, place it
low enough so that all mem-
bers of the family can use it.
Put the Fire Out
A basic lifesaving tool
that most people overlook is
a fire extinguisher. Available


at your home improvement
store for $20-and-up, you
can't afford not to have one
in your kitchen and every
bedroom of the house.

Furnace Service
While your furnace sits
dormant all winter, dust and
dirt can gather, releasing
harmful particles into the
air. Similar to a chimney
sweep, have a professional
check and ocean your fur-
nace at least once a year. Be
sure to charge .out.any fil- ,,,
ters on a regular,basis. .- m
Get Kitted Out
Finally, is your family
prepared for an emergency?
See that your family has first
aid and emergency kits.
While you are at it, make
sure your car has an emer-
gency kit, too!

Happy holidays!
Hugs n'hammers,
Jane

OWC opens admissions for all


health programs


Each of the nursing and
allied health programs at
Okalbosa-Walton College
have opened their once-per-
year competitive application
process.
OWC health programs
include the Bachelor of
Science in Nursing a career
ladder program for current
RNs to further their educa-
tion, the Associate of Science
in Nursing which provides
training for those who desire
to become a Registered
Nurse (RN), new Associate
of Science degree programs
in Radiography and
Emergency Medical
Services, certificate pro-
grams in Dental Assisting,
Paramedic and Surgical
Technology, and a new
Emergency Medical
Technician (EMT) program
which is slated to begin in


mid-spring 2007.
Each OWC health pro-
gram has a once-per-year
admissions process, except
the new EMT program
which will accept applicants
at variable times during the
year and the BSN program
which has a priority dead-
line but accepts applications
on an on-going basis.
The EMT program at
OWC will prepare students
to apply for the examina-
tions to become a Florida
certified Emergency Medical
Technician and a National
Registry Emergency Medical
Technician-Basic. The 11-
credit OWC program for the
EMT certificate will blend
classroom instruction with
hands-on skills training and
real world clinical education
to prepare students as entry
level Emergency Medical


Technicians.
In-depth information on
each program's specific
admissions requirements
and application packets are
available on the college web
site. Since each health pro-
gram at OWC has a limited
number of admissions slots
each year, potential students
are encouraged explore all
available health program
options and may apply for
admission to more than one
program.
OWC health programs
benefited earlier this year
after OWC received compet-
itive state job training grants
to strengthen the college's
new Paramedic program,
launched this fall, as well as
support the new Emergency
Medical Technician certifi-
cate program.
Of the need for the


EMT/EMS sequence, OWC
senior vice president Dr. Jill
White noted that it is "a crit-
ical program for Northwest
Florida for two reasons: first
is the regional employment
demand for these jobs and
second is community health
needs." White said the col-
lege is already partnering in
the Paramedic training with
local EMS departments in
Okaloosa and Walton coun-
ties as well as 13 area fire
departments. "This enables
us to offer two high-need
programs for this area," said
White.
"Each step we're taking
with nursing and allied
health programs reflects our
commitment to address the
state and local critical short-
age of registered nurses and
other health care profession-
als," White said.

hydroelectric power.
Through the 2006 Florida
Energy Act, the Florida
Legislature appropriated
$15 million for the grant
program, with at least $5
million to support bioener-
gy projects and $10 million
for projects that generate or
utilize other renewable
energy resources.
"Through the Renewable
Energy Technologies Grant
Program, Florida is encour-
aging investment in alterna-
tive energy technologies,
which will build a diverse,
reliable supply of energy for
Florida," said DEP Secretary
Colleen M. Castille. "The
development of renewable
energy technologies will
help reduce demand for for-
eign fuels, promote energy


diversity, reduce pollution
and promote economic
growth."
Grant proposals will be
evaluated by the state based
on a number of different cri-
terion, including cost share
percentage, economic devel-
opment potential, energy
efficiency and how the pro-
ject fosters public awareness
of renewable energy tech-
nologies. Grants will be
awarded at a maximum of
$2.5 million per project.
Eligible applicants include
Florida municipalities and
county governments, estab-
lished for-profit companies
licensed to do business in
Florida, universities and
colleges in the state, utilities
located and operating with-
in Florida, not-for-profit
organizations as well as

Former NBA star and NHRA Pro Stock driver Tom Hammonds (center) was all smiles Christmas Day, as he and his three sons got to spend Christmas
together in Crestview for the first time. With Hammonds busy basketball and racing careers taking up most of his time since he graduated from
Crestview High School in 1985, Hammonds relished in the time he got to spend with his boys and his dog, Chevy back in the Hub City this
Christmas. From left are Keelan, 11, Kaison, 7, and Tom IV, 21, who is playing college basketball at North Florida after transferring from East Carolina
last season. The elder Hammonds is getting set to make his comeback in the NHRA this February and hopes to eventually have his sons join his team.

MTSU played in

Motor City Bowl
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

For the first time in his life,
Richard Bortner didn't get to
spend Christmas at home
this year.
Bortner had a good
excuse. Bortner and his
Middle Tennessee State foot-
ball teammates spent the hol-
iday in Detroit preparing to
play in the
Motor City
Bowl.
The Blue
Raiders (7-5)
played Mid-
American
Conference
champion
BORTNER Cent:ra 1I
Michigan (9-
4) late Tuesday in Ford Field,
home of the NFL's Detroit
Lions. The game was sched-
uled to be televised by ESPN.
"A guy at our banquet said
Christmas has been going on
for over 2,000 years, so this
was as, good a reason as any
to miss one," said Bortner, a
2004 Crestview High School
graduate. "But tell everyone I
said, 'Merry Christmas.'"


Middle Tennessee State's
trip to Detroit concluded the
program's long journey back
from a rough 2005 campaign.
The Blue Raiders finished
4-7 in 2005, leading to the
dismissal of coach Andy
McCollum.
New coach Mark
Stockstill guided MTSU to a
three-win improvement and
a share of the Sun Belt
Conference title.
"I can't say there was any
one thing that changed,"
Bortner said. "It was mostly
an attitude change. Everyone
was doing the right things."
Bortner said the Blue
Raiders' 35-0 win at North
Texas on Sept. 30 set the tone
for the season. MTSU had
lost 59-0 against Oklahoma
in its previous outing, but the
win against the Mean Green
got the Blue Raiders back on
track.
MTSU had not posted a
road shutout since 1995. The
Blue Raiders had never
defeated North Texas in the
series' history. The Mean
Green had won four of the
previous five conference
titles.
"It was good to get that
monkey off of our back,"
Bortner said. "It started our
road winning streak and
turned us into champions."


MTSU missed a chance to
claim the outright conference
title and an automatic bid to
the New Orleans Bowl when
Troy rallied for a 21-20 win in
Murfreesboro on Nov. 25.
The Trojans went on to earn
the New Orleans Bowl trip.
The loss proved a blessing
in disguise. The Motor City
Bowl came calling when the
Big Ten could not fill its allot-
ment of bowl,"slots. The
Motor City Bowl payout is
$425,000 more than the New
Orleans Bowl.
"We were all really
happy," Bortner said. "It
actually, worked out for the
better, because we got a bet-
ter bowl game."
Middle Tennessee State's
most recent postseason
appearance came in 1964,
when the Blue Raiders
played in the Grantland Rice
Bowl.
Bortner's playing time
decreased during his redshirt
sophomore season, but he
still saw action in 11 of
Middle Tennessee State's 12
games.
Offensive line coach
Jimmy Ray Stephens said
Bortner has a bright future as
a Blue Raider.
"My initial impression
was that he was a very big,
strong, bulky guy," Stephens

said. "He does a really good
job of coming off of the ball
and drive blocking, and he
has gotten better in pass pro-
tection.
"He played in a backup
role this season. But he is still
very young, and I look for-
ward to him having good
years in the future."
Bortner says he had not
ventured north of Tennessee
prior to the trip to Detroit.
The Blue Raiders were sched-
uled to watch the Chicago
Bears-Detroit Lions game on


Christmas Eve. They also
planned a team outing to a
92-lane bowling alley and a
meal at a Shula's steakhouse.
Bortner also hoped to visit
the Motown Historical
Museum and to get across
the Detroit River to set foot in
Canada.
Not a hometown
Christmas, but still a fun one.
"It has been a good sea-
son," Bortner said. "We had
our ups and downs, but
everyone fought and pushed
through."

National Guard Armory getting long overdue facelift

A new parking lot and storage area are being excavated on the armory's north side.


These temporary office and storage spaces will be used for armory staff and drill class-
rooms while the armory undergoes renovation.

The National Guard

1954 at the behest of US
Congressman Robert L.F.
Sikes.
A Crestview resident,
Sikes was chairman of the
powerful house appropria-
tions committee. Since then,
the building has remained
virtually unchanged.
However, the 60-year-old
structure is undergoing a
complete makeover, the first
in its history.
"We've needed this for a
long time," said Army Sgt.
1st Class Steven Barrow,
armory administrative NCO.
