Sheriff sends New Year's message to north Okaloosa residents


As we get ready to start a new year,
it's rewarding to reflect on how many
things we have to be grateful for in 2006.
It seems the deputies and civilian
employees of the Okalooss County
Sheriff's Office face greater and greater
demands for service with each passing
month. Everyone who lives in North
Okaloosa County knows the reason rapid
growth But from child abuse cases to
cracking down on aggressive drivers -
from walking the halls of area schools to
putting together fundrisers for the
Shelter House the men and women of our


department have continually shown : ;dadi-
cation to protect their neighbors, their
communities, and our thousands of visitors
as well.
Deputy Harold-Mason has been a great
addition to the traffic enforcement unit in
the north end. Investigator Ralph Garrett
of Crestview recently earned statewide
recognition for his work on child exploita-
tion oases. In faet, there are oenotless
examples in 2006 of our deputies giving
their all to keep Okaloos County a great
and safe pleoe to live.
In 2007, I will continue to work to


meet the growing demands for law enforce-
ment services caused by growth. I also
look forward to working closely with new
Crestview Police Chief Brian Mitchell.
In addition, our Crime Prevention Unit
is hoping to build on a program called
"Seniors Helping Seniors" which has vol-
unteers in North Okaloose County checking
in on elderly residents who live alone.
There will also be a new local initiative
kicked off soon that will allow law
enforcement agencies and the public to
keep better track of where sexual offend-
ers and predators live. And stay tuned for


more efforts to constantly improve our
service.
I hope each aird every one of you has a
safe and prosperous New Year.
And please remember, Don't Drink and
Drivel
Sincerely,



Sheriff Charlie Morris

Cody Barnhill, a 10-year-old Baker fourth-grader, catches air off the newly redesigned motorcross track at Oak Grove Motorsports Park,
north of Crestview and Baker. The track's new owners, David Barnhill (standing, left) and Kevin King have spent the past month working on
the one-mile track and plan to open the facility to the public, beginning on Jan. 21.

New motocross track stirring excitement with local riders


Steve Andrews
Managing Editor

What has been in the works for
nearly a year is finally coming to
fruition for two local men looking
to boost interest in motocross rid-
ing in north Okaloosa County.
In one of the country's fastest-
growing recreational sports, dirt-
biking enthusiasts from around the
region will now be able to fly high
without traveling a long distance.
Crestview resident Kevin King
and Baker resident David Barnhill'
have been spending all of their
spare time over the last few weeks
putting the finishing touches on
the redesigned track at Oak Grove
Motorsports Park, north of
Crestview.
The facility sits on 40.6 acres
owned by David Atkisson, adja-
cent to an established go-cart track,
about a mile south of Highway 2.
"We have been talking about it
for about a year," said King, owner
of Second Generation Contracting.
"The more we talked about it, the
more the word spread, and the


more it seemed like people really
liked the idea."
King and Barnhill signed a 10-
year lease for the property and
established the Southern
Motorsports Association.
They brought in renowned dirt
track builder Greg Cole, of
Southern Dirt Design in
Montgomery, Ala., to design and
construct the new one-mile track.
Cole spent four days on a bulldoz-


er laying the overall foundation.
"Then David and myself got on
the bulldozer-and have been kind
of fine-tuning everything," King
said. "We have changed some of
the things out here, because we
both ride and we both knew what
we wanted."
The facility, complete with a
dust-control sprinkler system on
the entire track, is scheduled to
open for the public on Jan. 20.


"If you've got a motorcycle, we
don't care how old you are or how
young you are, this a place to come
out and ride it," King said. "And
its a plaice to learn."
The track includes a pair of 60-
foot table-top jumps, a pair of 60-
foot double jumps and an 85-foot
triple at the finish line.
"We've also got a 98-foot triple
jump included for the brave ones,"
King said with a chuckle. "For the
real advanced riders it probably
takes about two minutes to ride
one lap."
The facility itself will also
include restrooms for men and
women, showers, bleachers and a
concession stand.
There will also be a go-cart track
that can be used for four-wheelers,
a pit-bike track and a pee-wee
track. Plans are also in the works to
install lights for night riding.
The track will open to boys,
girls, men and women of all ages,
and of all skill levels. It will be
open on Saturdays and Sundays

M The Crestview Police
Department's R.U.O.K.
senior services program
keeps older residents
connected for safety.
Adam Ziglar
Crestview News Bulletin
What rose from the smoldering
ruins of a blown computer has
turned into a program that con-
nects senior adults with friendly
dispatchers and police officers.
The Crestview Police
Department's R.U.O.K. program
started in 2002 as a way to have
daily checkups on the community's
elderly citizens. The'police depart-
ment purchased a computer that
would call the seniors at an
assigned time. If the person didn't
answer, the machine would then
contact a police officer, who would
respond to the home and make
sure they were OK.
As fate would have it, however,
the machine was too impersonal.
Conversation with a machine was a
bit awkward, so one day the
machine died.
"The computer blew up, so we
had to start calling the people on
our list," said Jodie Hooper, who
works as a police dispatcher.
Hooper and the other women
who work at the city's dispatch
"nook" at the Public Safety build-
ing run down the same list every
morning.
With 13 names that seldom
change, the list is nearly unneces-
sary.
Dispatchers have been calling
the same citizens every morning
for the past few years. They've
built relationships with each per-
son and when the occasional elder-
ly citizen dies, it takes a while for
them to dry their eyes. They find
themselves naturally calling num-
bers and no one is waiting on the
other end.
"It's hard. You really build a
relationship with them," said dis-
patcher Julee Breen.
Along with nearly a dozen
glowing computer screens and a
muted television with revolving
doses of cooking and talk shows,
Christmas cards dangle from desk-
tops and cabinets. The cards, from

"He wanted a bike, so we
bought him one in '03 and he
liked it," said his dad. "We

Crestview News Bulletin

Motorists entering the city
of Crestview will now be
greeted by new welcome
signs courtesy of North
Okaloosa Search and Rescue,
Inc., a local civic organiza-
tion.
This gift to the community
was the last official act that
the volunteer organization's
board of directors performed
before disbanding on May 3,
2004.
"We began working on the
sign project in May of 2004,"
said NOSAR board member
Grace Ferdon. "It has taken
this long for the FDOT to
approve the design and the
permitting process."
The four beautiful stone
monuments, one on each side
of State Road 85 as it enters
the city limits from the north
and the south, and one on
each side of U.S. Hwy 90 as it
enters the city limits from the
east and west, add a notice-
able touch of class to the
city's main gateways.
For Ferdon the signs are
more than just a beautifica-
tion project. They serve as a
lasting memorial to her late
husband, Willie Ferdon, one
of the founding members of
the NOSAR.
"Willie worked so hard to
help get the organization
going and it meant an awful
lot to him. I really wanted to
do something through the
NOSAR group to recognize
his hard work and all of the
others that served the com-
munity through the NOSAR
before it disbanded," said
Ferdon.
Formed on Aug. 6, 1992,
and officially chartered by
the State of Florida on Oct. 7,
1992, the NOSAR served the
community as a highly moti-
vated group of volunteers
trained in all aspects of land
and water search and rescue
techniques.
They assisted local law
enforcement and other agen-
cies during searches resulting

approved by the Florida Departnient of Transportation.

from various situations such
as a drowning, hunting acci-
dents, and lost children. The
organization also provided
needed communications, dis-
aster damage assessment and
other assistance in and
between local disaster shel-
ters and the counties

during and after periods of

During its 12-year exis-
tence the group was recog-
nized throughout the pan-
handle for its specialized
skills. NOSAR was often
called on by not only
Okaloosa County emergency
management services, but
also those of Walton, Santa
Rosa, and Escambia counties.
The group held various
fund raising events each year
to help purchase the expen-
sive high tech communica-
tion and rescue equipment
needed to perform their
tasks.

NOSAR operated, we never
failed to respond as needed,"

Park director says new dugouts
are a small glimpse of possible
improvements to the park.

LAUREL HILL After a
successful first season of t-
ball, Laurel Hill Park
Director Johnny James con-
tinues to improve the city's
park, which has been
neglected for several years.
James's most recent efforts
have paid off in big divi-
dends. After a number of
donations, including $500
from the Crestview Wal-
Mart, James is building
dugouts for the park's t-ball
field.
"We started doing things
about two years ago to have
something for kids to do,"
said James, a volunteer, who
has organized t-ball and bas-
ketball programs for the
small municipality in the
northern corner of Okaloosa
County.
James, who works at


Wooley. "During the last year
of ops our membership kept
getting smaller. When we
reached a point where we
didn't have enough members
to operate we decided to dis-
band."
Wooley said that when the
board held its final meeting
in May of 2004, the idea of
the welcome signs was
raised.
"At our last meeting I sug-
gested giving our mobile
command van and radios to
the Crestview Police
Department and all other
equipment to the local volun-
teer fire departments," con-
tinued Wolley. "I suggested
that because the money had
been raised through the com-
munity that it should go back
to the community in some
lasting meaningful way. For
something that people could
remember NOSAR for, such
as greeting signs to be locat-
ed at the city limit lines on
both Highways 85 and 90,
north and south."
It was then that the deci-
sion to erect new welcome
signs for the city came about.
At the time NOSAR had
$6,595.14 in its coffers.
"It was a unanimous
vote," said Wooley, also a;

Crestview Aerospace during
the week, works afternoons
and on weekends so Laurel
Hill children will have out-
side after school activities.
"We've been working hard to
get some things done for
these kids," said James, who
has two kids who graduated
Laurel Hill School and went


on to earn college degrees.
"If they don't have anything
to do, they think about bad
things to do. That's my inten-
tion to have something
fun for kids to do. That's
what I'm all about."
In addition to the
dugouts, the city hopes to
raise money for outdoor


founding member.
"At the time it seemed like
a very simple solution," said
Ferdon. "We had no idea the
amount of red tape that the
FDOT was going to attach to
the project. Nothing can be
permanently placed in the
FDOT right-of-way without
the proper permitting. The
FDOT has very specific regu-
lations as to the design, con-
struction materials used and
colors allowed of any perma-
nent signs."
In May 2004, the NOSAR
took their original design
idea to Landmark
Engineering in Pensacola to
assist with the design specifi-
cations and to file the permit
with FDOT. It wasn't until
August of :'2005 that : the
FDOT approved the engi-
neering design,
"I got so frustrated that
there were times when I just
wanted to give up the whole
idea," said Ferdon. "But we
stuck it out and were very
pleased with the final results.
They look great and add a lot
of class to our city's entrance
ways."
Local company Signs
Galore was hired to build
and erect the signs.
The project still has one
final touch to be added. The
Crestview Area Chamber of
Commerce has offered to
provide some landscaping at
each site.
"The chamber is excited
and proud to be a part of this
beautification project," said
Crestview Area Chamber of
Commerce Director Wayne
Harris. "The chamber logo is
on each of the signs, and like
the new signs, our logo rep-
resents growth, prosperity,
and a great future for the
city."
Harris added that the
landscaping project will com-
mence sometime soon, after
the first of the year.

tographs dedicated to the

lighting. And James contin-
ues to patch the cracks and
jagged seams of the park's
derelict basketball court.
But right now, his main
priority is getting the
dugouts ready for t-ball .sW
son. Season registrationA-
expected to kick off in March,
James said.
Last year, 18 Laurel Hill
children participated in the
league, making up two
teams that played each other
every other weekend. This
upcoming season, James
hopes more kids will partici-
pate. He also hopes to join
the Dixie League, and host
games for teams from neigh-
boring cities like Paxton and
Crestview. The dugouts, he
said, are one step closer to
making that a reality.
"I'm trying to let people
know what's going on in
Laurel Hill," he said. "We
just want to get some things
going for the kids. The park
has been sitting here for so
long with little to no activi-
ty."

NOMC emergency room redirects ambulance patients


Adam Ziglar
Crestview News Bulletin

When emergency medical
personnel arrived to the
North Okaloosa Medical
Center Friday morning with
a patient suffering traumatic
injuries, a nurse told them the
hospital was filled to capacity
and the patient would have
to be taken elsewhere.
According to EMS person-
nel, the patient had chest
injuries from an automobile
accident. The unidentified
male had overturned his
semi truck near mile marker
64 on Interstate 10 at approx-
imately 6 a.m. Friday morn-
ing.

A-OK, from page 1
shows streams of thanks.
Then there's the list that's
taped to a cabinet door near
Hooper's desk. The residents'
names are there. Their tele-
phone numbers and address-
es are also on there. And the
call times are also written
next to each name.
The residents expect their
daily call. One morning, a 5
a.m. emergency tied up
phone lines and the dispatch-
ers were not able to call
Gladys Garrett. She expects a
prompt 5 a.m. call.
"She called every shift that
day to let us know that we
forgot to call her," said dis-
patcher Tara Horton, laugh-
ing about the incident.
Garrett, who recently
returned home from the hos-
pital from one of a number of
ailments, is always thankful
for the phone call.
, Speaking in a high, little
voice, Garrett talked about

Hospital personnel redi-
rected the ambulance to Twin
Cities Hospital in Niceville.
There, hospital personnel
could not release the man's
name or status.
Officials at North
Okaloosa Medical Center
said the issue arose because
the hospital did not have
room for additional emer-
gency room patients.
"It wasn't a staffing issue.
It was an overflow issue,"
hospital Marketing Director
Kim Willis said Friday when
asked if the emergency room
was properly staffed during
the late hours Thursday night
and early Friday morning.
Willis said staffing was not

police officers who check on
her, like they're family. She
was the first senior to sign up
for the program.
"They knocked on my.
front door and told me that
they had a good thing going,"'
she said, promoting the pro-
gram.
While the other residents
on the call list have asked to
be called between 7 and 8
a.m., Garrett prefers to be
called at 5 a.m.
"In the spring and summer
months the sun's way up
yonder by that time," she
cooed in a damp Southern
drawl. "If you have any thing
to do, you want to do it
early."
Currently, there are 13 peo-
ple on the dispatchers' call
list. Some of the residents live
in city public housing.
"We have keys to some res-
idents' homes," said fire dis-

the reason for turning away
patients.
According to the hospital's
Web site, the hospital has 110
licensed beds; there are 15
beds in the emergency room,
Willis said.
"This is not a common
occurrence," she said. "We've
never had an overflow like
this."
According to Willis, the
hospital underwent an emer-
gency "bypass."
In two separate instances,
including Friday morning's
occurrence, patients who
arrived in ambulances were
transported to different hos-
pitals either by helicopter or
ambulance.


patch supervisor Eric Garcia,
referring to public housing
residents.
Garcia explained that
when the dispatches think
something has gone awry,
they'll send one officer to the
house and another will come
:by police headquarters anid
pick up the key to the resi-
dence.
"The girls are really protec-
tive of their folks," Garcia
said. "They take this pretty

Patrick reducing dangers to supply convoys in Turkey


Michael Tolzmann
Special to the News Bulletin

INCIRLIK AIR BASE,
Turkey While most in
America are sharing in holi-
day cheer this season with
family or friends, the son of a
Crestview woman will be at
the center of the fight against
terror.
A few hundred miles from
the war zone in Iraq, Air
Force Tech. Sgt. Henry
Patrick, son of Debbie
Mestrezat of Crestview, is
helping keep American sol-
diers off dangerous Iraqi
convoy routes that are
plagued with roadside
bombs and sniper attacks.
Patrick assists in the
movement of critical sup-
plies via Air Force C-17
cargo airplanes that can land

close to, American soldiers. Sgt. Larry Simmons)


Patrick, a 1989
Choctawhatchee High
School graduate, is an aero-
space propulsion craftsman
serving with the 728th Air
Mobility Squadron here.
"I'm a jet engine mechan-
ic. I repair, inspect and
maintain C-17 cargo aircraft
engines. By doing so, the Air
Force can accomplish its mis-
sion here of moving supplies
into the war zone," said
Patrick.
Airmen here move cargo
off civilian 747 airplanes that
land here from the U.S., and
reload the cargo into the tac-
tical C-17 airplane. By flying
critically needed cargo
directly to American camps
in Iraq, supply truck con-
voys driven by American
soldiers over dangerous
Iraqi roads are greatly


reduced.
Patrick understands this
work is of great importance
in helping save American
lives in Iraq. "It's important
for us to provide reliable air-
craft that are ready to go, on
time. We have a busy flight
line here," he said.
Patrick has been serving
in the Air Force for 15 years.
Although he now lives in a
mostly dry, Mediterranean,
Middle Eastern country
known for its marble-laid
mosques, gold, textiles and
lamb meat, Patrick will be
thinking about home during
the holidays.
"I'll greatly miss my fami-
ly, friends and some home-
cooked food. I'll be here and
probably will have some
friends over to eat and watch
football," said Patrick.

Crestview AmVets present police department with stuffed toys

Brian Mitchell, with 101
stuffed toys on December .
20, 2006 at the police station
in Cresh-iew. The tovs are
for the departments ongoing
"Care Bear" program.
"On behalf of the police i:
department I want to thank
you and AmVets for this
wonderful gift," said
Mitchell, who then added, "I Police Chief Brian Mitchell accepts stuffed animal from

Mitchell just recently in Metairie, La., and gradu- officer in the South Florida
named Crestview chief, is a ated from Southeastern city of Rivera Beach, before


working his way northwest.
Before coming to Crestview,
his former job was chief of
police in Havana, Fla.
Care Bears has become
synonymous with AmVets
and police departments
across the United States and
I Canada. In adciio tb pro-
viding stuffed toys for cdhil-
dren who have been trauma-
tized by an automobile acci-
dent, domestic abuse or
neglect, another 2.5 million
have been donated through-
out North America to chil-
dren who have been victim-
ized by natural disaster.
Another part of the Care
Bear program is toys donat-
ed at Christmastime by
police departments across
America. The program
began in 1978, and is in itself
an offshoot of several loose-
ly connected but similar pro-
grams, such as Operation


Angel Bear, which are pri-
marily aimed at comforting
abused children. Mitchell
pointed this out as he
accepted the toys. He also
reiterated the fact that
policemen not only hand out
toys to children who are in

been traumatized but also
to underprivileged kids as
well, a fact that he says is
under reported.
"We use these toys in our
Care Bears program much
the same as EMS teams do
when they respond to a
call," said MiFt'i ll.
"Anytime a child is involved
in an accident or is victim of
abuse or neglect, we
respond, and it really makes
a difference to a frightened
child to have something to
hold on to," he said.
"However, we cannot forget
those who are underprivi-


legged and this is what this
program helps us with. And
again, I want to thank every-
one for these wonderful
gifts," said Mitchell. "These
become very important to
children at the right time."
The stuffed toy animals
have become part 'of
AmVets' community
involvement. According to
White, AmVets Ladies
Auxiliary decided to add the
police department to its list
of beneficiaries in June of
this year. It has already
become a mainstay with
EMS. "We've been efigaged
in the Care Bear program
here in Crestview for several
years now. And I think it
keeps getting bigger and'[ ,-,
better," White said. **
AmVets posts donate
approximately 1.5 million
stuffed toy animals each
year nationwide.

and collected experimental
data.

sium.
While at Clarkson

Teachers.
Sarah's plans now
include attending the


University of Texas to com-
plete her master's degree in
secondary education. She

is a 2003 graduate of
Horseheads High School,
Horseheads, N.Y.
Her mother, Karen, says,
"We are so excited for her to
be graduating' and on the
Dean's List! But more than
that we hope that our
daughter can set an example
to the local Florida female
students that girls can go on
to be very successful in math
and science. Companies
offer scholarships to female
students who have an inter-
est in this field.
"Sarah has been a dream
of a daughter and we are
beyond words when it
comes to pride," she contin-
ued.

phone, etc.)
-Senior High (Grades 9-

ed driving, aggressive dri-
ving, etc.)

tices, the originality of how
the idea is expressed in the

Tips to ease holiday overindulgence
from the National Headache
Foundation

CHICAGO, IL
Throughout the year, many
people look forward to cele-'
brating the holiday season
with family and friends.
While these times can be joy-
ous, they can also provide the
opportunity to drink more
than usual, which can cause
the onset of a hangover
headache. According to a
recent online survey conduct-
ed by the National Headache
Foundation, 92% of survey
respondents noted that they
have experienced a hangover
headache.
This holiday season, 80%
of survey respondents replied
that they plan to consume
alcoholic beverages, of which
56% plan to consume at least
three drinks. To help avoid or
lessen the suffering associated
with hangover headaches
that often accompany these
annual festivities, the NHF
offers some advice and a
headache-free drink recipe.
IF YOU CHOOSE TO
DRINK ALCOHOL, DO SO
IN MODERATION. Try to
sip your drink slowly. Mixed
drinks containing fruit or veg-

etable juices will probably
have less effect than straight
alcohol.
AVOID RED WINE,
which contains naturally
occurring chemicals called
congeners. Forty-one percent
of survey respondents listed
red wine as the type of alco-
holic beverage that most fre-
quently causes headaches.
Congeners impart the specific
characteristic tastes to differ-
ent types of wine and other
alcoholic beverages.
Unfortunately, they also may
play a role in causing
headaches. Congeners are
more common in red than
white wine.
Also, it is advisable to
reduce the actual number of
alcoholic beverages you con-
sume. Spend time catching up
with an old friend at the
snack table with a soda or
glass of water.
EAT SOME HONEY.
Honey supplies fructose, a
sugar that helps the body
metabolize alcohol, is rich in
vitamin B6 and can reduce
hangover symptoms. Two
tablespoons of honey on a
cracker or piece of toast,
before or after drinking, may
prevent a hangover. Tomato
juice, another good source of
fructose, also allows the body
to bum alcohol faster. The
sugar in fruit and fruit juices
may also reduce some symp-
toms of hangover, so con-


sumption of these products
can be beneficial.
DRINK FLUIDS CON-
TAINING MINERALS AND
SALTS. Liquids rich in min-
erals and salts offer relief
from the dehydration caused
by alcohol consumption. A
cup of broth or bouillon, for
example, will replace fluid
and will not cause nausea. In
general, replacement of fluids
with beverages, such as
sports drinks or water, is
helpful.
DRINK A CUP OF COF-
FEE. Caffeine may provide
some relief in alleviating the
headache symptoms and
decreasing the duration of
pain. The caffeine acts as a
vasoconstrictor and eases the
dilated blood vessels.
Consider drinking a cup of
coffee as soon as you wake up
the next morning.
TAKE IBUPROFEN.
While aspirin is okay, ibupro-
fen is typically less irritating
to the stomach and can also
ease the pain of hangover
headache.
ALTERNATE NON-
ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES
with alcoholic beverages.
Drinking one non-alcoholic
beverage between each alco-
holic beverage reduces over-
all alcohol consumption and
helps replenish fluids. An
easy way to achieve this is
asking for a glass of water in
addition to your alcoholic


beverage of choice when
ordering a drink at the bar.
Just 36% of survey respon-
dents said that they had tried
alternating non-alcoholic bev-
erages with alcoholic bever-
ages to reduce the chance of
having a hangover.
EAT GREASY FOOD
BEFORE CONSUMING
ALCOHOL. While it is wise
to be health-conscious and.
avoid too much of these foods
in general, this is a situation
where eating fatty foods may
be helpful. If consumed prior
to drinking alcohol, these.
foods help line the intestines,
which causes alcohol absorp-
tion to take longer. In other
words, a burger or burrito
before your beer or Bloody
Mary might be beneficial.
Only 22% of survey respon-
dents stated that they have
tried eating greasy foods
before consuming alcohol.
While a headache caused
by drinking too much may be
more common at this time of
year, chronic headaches can
be a problem at any time.
Headaches are a legitimate
neurobiological disease, and
are treatable. If you are expe-
riencing headache pain that
affects your life, make an
appointment with your
healthcare provider specifi-
cally to discuss your
headache problem and seek
accurate diagnosis and treat-
ment.

The PGA Champions

and the 18th hole at
Sandestin Golf and Beach
Resort's Raven Golf Club
stands alone atop the list.
The 431-yard par 4
played to a 4.577 stroke
average over the three days
of the Boeing Championship
at Sandestin, making it the
most difficult hole on the
Champions Tour ahead of
holes at major champi-
onships like the U.S. Senior
and Senior British Opens.
Two other holes at Raven
also made the top 10 for their
challenging layout during
tournament play. The par 4
ninth played 460 yards dur-
ing the event and played to a
4.41 stroke average making
it seventh on the list. Raven's
16th, a 228-yard par three,
came in 10th, playing to a

A double play


Crestview Little League

Opening Day is set for March


Kyle.Wright ......
News Bulletin Sports. Editor


Registration for the Crestview
Little League's 2007 youth baseball
and softball seasons will take place
on Jan. 20, Jan. 27 and Feb. 3 at the
Crestview Little League facility on
Garden City Road. Participants also
can register online.
Crestview Little League president
Brian Goodwin and vice president
of baseball operations Charlie Neel
expect over 300 youths to sign up for
the league's six baseball divisions
and four new softball divisions.
Crestview Little League drew 254
youngsters in 2006.
"Little League gets more atten-
tion than any other youth sports
organization," Goodwin said. "Our
goal is to make Crestview Little.
League as good as we possibly can,
as competitive as we possibly can, as
fun as we possibly can, and as safe
as we possibly can." .
Parents and players will notice a
safety-inspired facelift on the dia-
monds at the league's Garden City
Road complex. The fields have new
warning tracks and dirt basepaths,
as well as breakaway bases.
The league also is raising money
to install anew 40-foot flagpole. The
current flagpole is not visible from
all parts of the facility. The new flag-
pole will feature a plaque honoring
veterans at its base.
The league welcomes volunteers
to help in all facets of the league's
operation. Volunteers are subject to
background screening. The league
also seeks sponsors for its teams.
"We are a completely volunteer
organization," Neel said. "The people
who are out here do it completely for
the kids. If something is not in the
kids' best interest, then it is not done."
Crestview Little League fields all-
star teams in all baseball and softball
divisions from age 8 and up. The all-
star teams participate in Little League
sanctioned competitions against area
teams. Some age divisions have the
opportunity to advance to state and
national competition including the
Little League World Series in,
Williamsport, Pa.
"We want to be more competitive
when we represent the' city of
Crestview in the postseason," Neel

here, all I have ever wanted was to
see Crestview represented in the
best way possible. Wouldn't it be
great to be watching the Little

see Crestview represented? I don't
consider that just a dream." *


Kyle Wright,
News Bulletin Spqjg. Editor

Registration for the City of
Crestview's 2007 youth baseball
and softball seasons will take place
throughout January.
Crestview Parks and Recreation
supervisor Chuck Powell expects
almost 750 youths to sign up for the
city's five baseball and two softball
divisions. The league had 688 play-
ers in 2006.
-"Baseball is alive and w-ell in the
City of Crestview Parks and
Recreation Department," Powell
said. "We are proud of what we
have and what we offer."
Parents and players will notice
the newly-paved parking lot when
they arrive at Durrell W. Lee Park.
A batting cage has been donated to
the department and will be set up
at the complex.
Powell said the city also plans
some other aesthetic improvements
to the facility.
"The park is going to have great
visual presentation from the road,"
Powell said.
'Teams are drafted by coaches in
each league.
"We do not stack teams," recre-
ation specialist George Hillsman
said. "There is a misconception that
some teams are put together to
have an advantage, but that is not
true."
The league welcomes volunteers
to help coach -the teams.
Prospective coaches are subject to
background screening.
"The main thing I would like to
get across is that we are a recre-
ation league," Powell said. "We
want to provide a safe and enjoy-
able atmosphere for people to par-
ticipate in athletics and learn the
fundamentals of the game they are
playing.
"We have a fully-staffed recre-
ation department, soyou can show
up and enjoy the game and support
your children from the sidelines."
The city sponsors an all-star
team in each of its baseball age
divisions. The all-star teams partic-
ipate in Dizzy Dean local and state
