Newl\ appointed Crestview
Postmlaste' lohn Blair is a hium
believer in tate.
While working as the postal sta-
tion manager in Bremerton, WaVh..
in 1098, Blair met United States-
CoastI Giurd Commander Dennis
Gamble Jr. ot Crestview at a Little
League baseball game.
Little did either of then know,
but that chance meeting would end
up in a friendship that helped facil-
itate Blair's coming to Crestview
for summer vacations.
\\'her \ie caine down here we
would al iva ., stay with Dennis and
his falmih',. and to us Crestview was
so t of our home avway from home."
said Blair.
"My wife and I liked it here.
We had even planned to come here
to retire, he added.
Four years ago, he put in for job
in Niceville, but withdrew his
application because his children
were still in school.
However, when the Crestview,
position opened in December 2006,
it was as if fate dealt him a winning
hand.
Another strange twist was that
at about the time Blair arrived in
Crestview, his wife was offered an
executive position with the USO in
Pensacola.
"She called me from Norfolk,
Va., where they had flown her for
the interview, and offered her the
job on the spot. She said, 'I think
somebody is trying to tell us some-
thing,'" Blair laughed.


He may be '
right.
Blair's la-t assign-
ment was station manager in
Spokane. Wash., where he com-
muted about 90 miles a da\.
"I got really tired of the four-
hour round-trip five days a week,"
said Blair, a 25-\ear veteran of the
postal -\stem. Then he added.
"\'When the Creshiew job opened
that is hereee I wanted to be."
Bliiir, his wife and daughter just
mo\ed into a new home in
Milligan. and his commute to work
is now about 15 minutes.
"All we are %waiLing lor now is
for our furniture to arrive." he said.
Blair is coming to a city that is on
the move, and along with that. the
post office has to meet customer
expectations, something that is
extremely important in his resume.
Back in 1998, when he and
Gamble first met, Crestview had
but one zip code and about 9,000
addresses, which also included
rural routes. Today, however, there
are 22 routes with an average of 600
deliveries per route. In addition,
seven routes deliver inside the city.
There are now 17,500 addresses
served by two zip, codes, and
according to Blair, Crestview is on
the cusp of adding a third zip code.
"We service about 20,000
addresses and handle about 100,000
pieces of mail on almost any given
day," said Blair.
As proud as he is of the job his
department is doing, Blair does
have some concern about how the
public sees the postal service.


New Crestview Postmaster John Blair (second from right) became
close friends with Baker resident Dag Gamble (back row, far right)
when both were living in Washington. The two friends are neigh-
bors once again now that Blair has moved to Florida.


"A lot of people have a bad opin-
ion of the post office," said Blair,
"But I plan to change (that). In fact,
I've already started some things
which I think will help improve our
image.
"For one thing, people don't like
waiting in lines for more than five
minutes. The one exception is at
Christmas, but on a day-to-day
basis, it should not happen."
Also in the works is a South
Crestview finance unit, .a postal
service center that would sell
stamps and mail packages.
"We are looking at a place right
now, but we haven't made any
decision yet," said Blair.


"Crestview is growing so fast it
is unbelievable, and in post office
parlance that means we are adding
about five addresses a day to our
system. That is phenomenal
growth."
Blair also had some words of
wisdom for the public.
"One of the smartest things the
public could do more effectively is
use our postal service Web site
because they really don't have to
leave home to buy stamps, mail let-
ters, or schedule pickup and deliv-
ery of packages," he said.
"Anyone with a computer can
schedule these services. The Web
address is www.usps.com.

A rose is a rose no matter where it grows


Shari Farrell
Okaloosa County Master
Gardener
Special to the Bulletin


Roses. Who doesn't love
them! For centuries the rose
has been cultivated all over
the world in a seeming end-
less array of color and vari-
ety. Too hard to grow in
Florida? Although this is not
the best time to plant,
depending on the location,
variety, proper preparation
of soil and a certain amount
of care, today's improved
cultivars make it easier than
ever to enjoy them in our
own gardens. Several North
County residents have
recently requested informa-
tion on shrub roses, although
there are also rambling roses,
climbing roses and miniature
roses; today's article is dedi-
cated to the beautiful shrub
rose.
Here in northern Florida
roses are able to produce
blooms at least nine months
of the year, keeping some
foliage through the winter
months. Certain varieties
continue to bloom year
round given the right loca-
tion and minimal care. One
example is the Knock-Out
rose bed which can be seen in
the Educational Landscape at
the UF/Okaloosa County
Extension building here in
Crestview; these roses have
been in bloom since they
were planted late last spring.
In my own garden, three
Multibilis shrubs provide
beautiful blooms 12 months
of the year. Regular readers
of this column know that in
my gardens minimal care
and often complete neglect is
to be expected.
Location is the first con-


sideration for any plant
whether it is a tree, shrub or
tiny annual. Is there enough
room, will it get the sunlight
it needs and is it an area
where the correct care can be
given? Many gardeners
dream of a beautiful rose bed
overflowing with color.
Roses grow much larger in
Florida than in states where
the average temperature,
light intensity and humidity
are lower. The recommend-
ed spacing between plants is
wider in Florida than else-
where. The space needed by
each shrub depends on the
growth habits; some need
only a one-foot diameter cir-
cle while others require up to
eight feet. A bed dedicated
to roses must be large
enough to accommodate the
requirements of all the
shrubs to be planted. To
other gardeners the appeal is
a thick hedge in front of the
fence or a wall. That is not
the best situation anywhere
and certainly not in our cli-
mate. Once the location is
decided it's time to find the
right variety.
Here in the South success
depends on a number of fac-
tors. Ever-blooming roses
grafted on Rosa fortuniana
rootstock are recommended.
This is our own native
Cherokee rose. Florida coop-
erative experiment stations
have determined that roses
on this rootstock grow better,
produce more flowers and
live years longer than any
other. Local nurseries are
more likely to offer these or
the information needed to
find them. Many of the roses
that flower only in the spring
months need colder winters
than are usual here in north
Florida. Choosing ever-

shades from dark pink to pale yellow.


blooming or recurrent culti-
vars in place of seasonal
bloom is best.
The proper soil prepara-
tion may not seem all that
important in some cases;
even this certified Master
Gardener tends to plunk a
plant in the ground and be
done with it. That isn't as
critical to an annual as it is
for the costly additions to the
landscape we expect to last a
number of years. Beginning
with a soil test of the pH and
adding the soil amendments
recommended will aid in a
longer more productive life
for the plant and a much
happier gardener. To obtain
a free soil analysis, contact
the Master Gardeners at the
Okaloosa Extension office for
instructions.
Another important factor
is how much care will be
given. Is the gardener will-
ing to spend several hours a
week tending these beauties
or must they survive with
minimal attention? At the
very least roses require at
least one inch of water a
week. Whether it is in the


form of rain or irrigation
does not matter; water is best
applied to the soil surface but
if overhead sprinkling rhust
be used, water early enough
for the leaves to idry before
sundown.
As is required in all gar-
dens, more than just water is
necessary for roses. Even
though they are extremely
hardy shrubs additional
maintenance involving fertil-
ization, mulching and prun-
ing are necessary for the
lovelies to thrive. All of this
information is found in
Circular 344, written by
Professors McFadden and
Black from the University of
Florida/IFAS Extension. It
offers the gardener complete
instructions on Rose Culture
in Florida and is available at
the Okaloosa County
Extension Office in
Crestview, please visit or
phone for your cop)'. The
same circular is available
from the University on-line
at http: / / solutionsfory-
ourlife.ufl.edu/ by entering
roses in the search box.
Happy Gardening!:.

Exhibit honors Black History Month


Kelly Humphrey
Florida Freedom Newspapers

In conjunction with Black
History Month, the
Crestview Robert L.F. Sikes
Public Library is hosting an
exhibit that illustrates the
friendship of world-
renowned painter Emil
Holzhauer and legendary
local midwife Gladys Milton.
Emil Holzhauer paintings
from the private collection of
the Gladys B. Milton family
will be on exhibit at the
library through March 31.
Emil Holzhauer (1887-
1986), for whom an
Okaloosa-Walton College art
gallery is named, donated a
multi-million dollar perma-
nent collection of his works
to the college. Gladys B.
Milton (1924-1999), a mid-
wife who delivered more
than 3,000 babies in
Northwest Florida and
served as Holzhauer's
housekeeper from the 1960s
until his death, was inducted
into the Florida Women's
Hall of Fame and the
Okaloosa County Women's
Hall of Fame. '
At the intersection of
these two lives is a collection
of dozens of seldom-seen
Holzhauer paintings that the
artist ,gave to Milton over the
years..The artwork is on dis-


play through an arrange-
ment with Milton's daugh-
ters, Maria Milton and
Eleanor Campbell.
"We are excited to offer to
our customers the opportu-
nity to view Mr. Holzhauer's
paintings," said Library
Director Jean Lewis. "Our
library encourages local
artists to bring their works
for viewing. We are especial-
ly happy to display these
paintings during African-
American History Month as
they depict the everyday life
and culture of the Floridian
African-American people."
Holzhauer, a German
immigrant, came to study art
in New York City at the age
of 19. He later became a stu-
dent of Robert Henri, the
leader of the Ashcan School,
at Henri's progressive school
of art in Manhattan. .
He enjoyed a long and
illustrious teaching career
and traveled throughout the
world before he came to
Florida in 1953 and married
Marion Scofield of Niceville,
where he lived until his
death.
Maria Milton, who has
carried on her mother's work
as a midwife in Flowersview,
has vivid memories of visit-
ing the Holzhauer household
as a child.
"During the summer,


when school was out, I'd go
with my mother sometimes
to spend the day while she
worked at the Holzhauers',"
Milton recalled. "I always
looked forward to my 'bayou
day,' because up here we
were surrounded by trees."
Milton recalled that her
family's relationship with
the Holzhauers went beyond
the traditional employer-
employee bond.
"One thing that meant a
lot to my mother was the fact
that Mr. Holzhauer never
showed any discrimination
toward her," Milton said.
"This was in the late 1950s,
early 1960s, when Niceville
was still a very segregated
city. On the first day that she
went to work for him, my
mother went to the back
door, as most black people
were accustomed to doing in
those days: Mr. Holzhauer
asked her why she did that,
and from then on he always
insisted that she come in
through the front door."
Toward the end of his
long life, when Holzhauer's
health began to fail, Gladys
Milton's nursing training
came into play.
"She became more than a
housekeeper to him," Milton
said. "Later on, I went to col-
lege for nursing, too, and the
two of us would take care of


him and his wife. I remember
how we used to massage his
hands when he got older. His
memory was starting to fail,
and I'd tell him about how
he had been a great painter,
and had used his hands to
create beautiful artwork."
The deep friendship that
the Milton family formed
with the Holzhauers extend-
ed to Maria's brother,
George.
"The Holzhauers sup-
ported my brother financial-
ly when he went to medical
school," she explained.
"Later, when he became a
doctor, he helped take care
of them."
Holzhauer died in 1986,
just shy of his 100th birth-
day. He bequeathed more
than 400 of his paintings to
Okaloosa-Walton College,
where many are on perma-
nent display at the
Holzhauer Gallery. His art is
sought after by collectors
around the world, and
many of his pieces have sold
for tens of thousands of dol-
lars.
But don't expect to see
any of the pieces from the
Milton Family Collection on
the auction block.
"They're part of the fam-
ily," Milton said of her
beloved paintings. "I don't
want to part with them."


HISTORY, continued from 1


history.
Known as a dynamic
leader, Kelly was one of 30
county commissioners from
across the country selected to
attend the County
Leadership Irstitute in New
York.
The event was sponsored
by the National Association
of Counties and New York
University's Robert F.
Wagner Graduate School of
Public Service.


Stakley said the program
is intended to recognize the
achievements of the black
community far and wide.
"We want to get together
and recognize our heritage,"
he said.
Throughout February, the
Crestview News Bulletin will
highlight the achievements of
local black leaders on a page
dedicated to black history in
North Okaloosa County.
Recalling key events that


are celebrated and remem-
bered throughout the month,
area black leaders will tell
their own stories of signifi-
cant historical moments.
They'll reveal their per-
sonal recollections of histori-
cal milestones, including
moments like Feb. 22, 1956,
when Rosa Parks, Martin
Luther King Jr. and several
other black leaders were
arrested for violating outdat-
ed state statutes that barred


boycotts without "just
cause."
Area black leaders will
recall not-too-distant times
when post-Civil War Jim
Crow laws required separa-
tion of races on buses, restau-
rants and other public accom-
modations throughout the
South.

Okaloosa County Jail.
Police Lt. Jamie Grant said
the arrests were made after
an ongoing investigation
that pointed to the sale of
drugs from Larinte's resi-
dence.
"We've been working on
this case for a while," said
Grant, explaining inform-
ants were used to make
undercover buys in
exchange for leniency on


other pending charges.
All three individuals were
unemployed and lived at the
Savage Street address, Grant
said.
The cocaine, packaged to
be sold, was a fairly large
amount, Grant said.
"That's a good bust. For
someone possessing 41
rocks, they're definitely a
seller," he said. "It's not a
huge amount, but it's a good


pop."
Grant said the drugs were
mostly being sold out of the
home. At roughly $40 a rock,
the drugs were worth
approximately $1,500 on the
street, Grant said.
The local presence of
cocaine has not increased
significantly, but the police
department has recently
made a number of drug
arrests. The successful


attempts to quell illegal
street drugs stems from
more manpower, Grant said.
"As we're coming up to
par as far as staff is con-
cerned. We're filling vacan-
cies and actually allocating
more people to work those
cases," he said. "Naturally,
you're going to produce
more. Your arrests and pro-
ductivity is going to be high-
er."

j U N SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 03, 2007


For I am the LORD, I change
not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are
not consumed. Malachi 3:6
I recently read that foot-
ball coach Vince Lombardi
would start each season by
standing in front of his play-
ers and showing them a foot-
ball. Then, he would look at
them and say, "Gentlemen,
this is a football." Then he'd
go through the basics of
blocking, -tackling and other
fundamentals of the game to
retrain the already dominant
Packers football team.
As Christians it is impor-
tant that we constantly return
to the basics of doctrinal
truth and service to the Lord.
The world around us is con-
stantly changing. It is a com-
fort to know that in the.midst
of upheaval, trials, and tribu-
lations that God is unchange-
able. This attribute of God


was a consolation to God's
people during the time of
Malachi and it should
encourage us today. We
return to the basics of God's
word because it is the only
sure thing in this ever-chang-
ing world.
How do we return to the
basics of doctrinal truths?
First we must discard the tra-
ditions of men and embrace
the teachings of the Bible.
One basic doctrine that has
either been ignored or mis-
represented by much of
Christianity is the principle
of election. The Bible teaches
that God chose a people unto
himself before the world was
created. The Apostle Paul
wrote of this truth in Romans
8:29-31. "For whom he did
foreknow, he also did predes-
tinate to be conformed to the
image of his Son, that he
might be the firstborn among
many brethren. Moreover
whom he did predestinate,
them he also called: and
whom he called, them he also


justified: and whom he justi-
fied, them he also glorified.
What shall we then say to
these things? If God be for us,
who can be against us?"
Paul is teaching us that as
God's children our eternal
destiny was determined
before we existed. The same
ones that were predestinated
by God are also called unto
him irresistibly; made just
through the blood of Jesus
Christ and will some day (if
not already) enter into
Heaven's eternal glory
because of the sacrifice of
Jesus on the cross. In 1 Peter
1:2, the Apostle Peter sup-
ports the doctrine of election
by addressing the Lord's
people as the "Elect accord-
ing to the foreknowledge of
God the Father." The afore-
mentioned verses are only a
couple out of many chroni-
cled in the Bible. God did not
merely look down through
time and see who would
accept him. He chose a peo-
ple to save before he spoke


the world into existence. In
reference to men choosing or
seeking God, the Psalmist
David wrote in Psalms 14:3
that, "They are all gone aside,
they are all together become
filthy: there is none that
doeth good, no, not .one."
Paul echoed this teaching in
the Roman letter. If God
would have looked through
time, He would have found
none accepting of Him. Our
human nature is corrupt!
Why is it important to
embrace this basic Bible doc-
trine? It is crucial that we
understand the doctrine of
election because it gives God
all of the glory. If we are
going to embrace the princi-
ple of salvation by grace
alone, then we have to deny
that man has any ability to
save himself.
In Ephesians 2:8-9, Paul
writes, "For by grace are ye
saved through faith; and that
not of yourselves: it is the gift
of God: Not of works, lest
any man should boast."

Sharing & Caring joining


regional food bank


Adam Ziglar
Crestview News Bulletin


Despite a leaky roof, the
spirits of volunteers at
Sharing & Caring are not
dampened.
On Monday,. the local
food pantry's director,
Madge Timmons, will go to
Pace for an orientation with
the Bay Area Food Bank's
Panhandle Branch.
The regional food bank
serves a large swath of the
Mississippi, Alabama and
Florida Gulf Coast and is
based in Mobile, Ala.
Joining the food bank will
allow the nonprofit local
pantry to purchase food at a
fraction of the costs it nor-
mally pays to local grocers.
For months,' Sharing &
Caring officials have worked
to raise awareness about
their mission to serve
Crestview's less fortunate
residents.
In November, they gave
food to more than 700 area
residents. They have also
distributed a number of
blankets to the area's home-


less population.
However, their building, a
dilapidated trailer that once
served as a roadhouse, has
been pieced together and
leaks when it rains.
Sharing & Caring volun-
teers have launched fund-
raising efforts to build a new
facility.
And they're getting help
from the Crestview Area
Ministerial Association, a
collective group of area
churches who have formed a
committee to address the
social group's building
needs.
Larry Collins is the chair-
man of a committee of min-
isters looking at ways to
help the food pantry.
"If you view their facility,
you'll see they are in very
dire need," Collins said.
"We've met to find out what
the needs are."
In addition to the commit-
tee of ministers who could


provide the services of vari-
ous congregants with build-
ing skills, a local engineer
has offered to draft building
plans, free of charge.
The committee will meet
with Cynthia Johnson-Hall,
the spokeswoman for
Sharing & Caring, on
Feb. 14.
In the meantime, Hall is
working with city officials to
discuss the requirements of
building on the food
pantry's current site off
Martin Luther King Jr.
Avenue.
Johnson-Hall said the Bay
Area Food Bank has agreed
to work with the local food
pantry.
"They know the needs
that we have," she said. "The
clientele has grown quite a
bit. Our food purchasing
dollar will now go much fur-
ther with them. They know
we're working toward a
building."


HOW TO HELP:
To volunteer, call Sharing & Caring at 682-1134.


Kervin Road has bumpy past


Ken Nielsen
Crestview News Bulletin


A letter sent out this week
from the transportation
department of the Okaloosa
County School District has
rekindled the anger of fami-
lies in one, north Okaloosa
community.
The letter, dated Jan. 30,
asked parents with children
living along a two-mile
stretch of Kervin Road in the
Mossy Head area to help
make sure that the sandy road
is maintained or risk losing
their school bus routes.
"This is ridiculous," said
Brent Blackburn, who relies
on the school bus to get his
8-year-old son, Dakota, to and
from Northwood Elementary
each day. "I'm not upset with
the school district. It's the
county commissioners that
refuse to maintain this road
that I have a problem with."
He believes that his pleas
to county commissioners over
the past 10 years to address
the problem with the road
have been ignored.
"I feel basically they're just
trying to avoid the entire situ-
ation," said Blackburn.
Irene Bussey also lives on
Kervin Road. Her daughter
got the letter from the bus
driver.
"What am I supposed to
do? Quit my job so that I can
pick my daughter up from
school?" Bussey asked. "I
pay taxes just like everyone
else. We're not asking the
county to come out and pave
this road. But at the very least
they could have it graded
every week. It looks to me like


our children's safety is taking
a back seat to the commis-
sioners' special interest in the,
south end of the county. I
wonder if it were their chil-
dren if they would react the
same."
The dispute as to who is
actually responsible for the
road has been going on for
many years. Kervin Road res-
idents say that county records'
show where the road was
deeded to the county in the
early 1960s.
John Blackburn has lived
on Kervin Road for.more than
40 years and remembers
when the road was deeded to
the county.
"I have copies of the origi-
nal paperwork where the
county accepted the road into
its system," Blackburn said.
The county contends that
in 1983 the commissioners
passed an ordinance that
required homeowners along
dirt roads similar to Kervin to
bring them up to specific
standards at the homeown-
ers' expense before the county
would agree to maintain
them.
"That may be true," said
Blackburn. "But this road,
Kervin Road, belonged to the
county long before they
passed that ordinance. It was-
n't our road in 1983 and it
should be their responsibili-
ty."
Commissioner Sherry
Campbell said she is sympa-
thetic to the residents' frustra-
tion, but the county's position
is firm.
"The road is considered an
unmaintained right-of-way,
and according to the Florida


statutes the county is prevent-
ed from using any public dol-
lars on it," said Campbell. "So
the residents there are going
to have to find a way on their
own to either bring the road
up to our standards for main-
tenance or maintain it them-
selves."
According to Jay McInnis,
the school district's program
director of transportation, the
letters sent home to the par-
ents was not a notification of
immediate bus interruption.
"We have no intention of
stopping the school buses that
run the routes on Kervin
Road," said McInnis. "But we
had a bus in a hole so deep
that water was coming in its
doors out there the other day.
For us it's a safety issue. We're
not looking to discontinue
bringing those children to
and from school, but the con-
dition of that road has to be
addressed."
Over the past five years
numerous public safety vehi-
cles have had to be rescued
from road hazards on Kervin
Road. The Dorcas Fire
Department has also
expressed to the county com-
missioners the safety issue of
the hazardous road condi-
tions.
"What's it going to take for
the county to wake up and
realize how serious this road
problem is?" asked
Blackburn. "Does someone
have to die waiting for emer-
gency vehicles who have to
carefully navigate this road,
delaying their response time,
before the commissioners see
that this is a serious prob-
lem?"

Crestview's girls season ends with an overtime loss


Bulldogs fall in

district semis
Randy Dickson
Florida Freedom Newspapers

FORT WALTON BEACH
- Niceville added insult to
injuries for Crestview's girls
basketball team Wednesday
during the District 1-5A tour-
nament semifinals.
The Eagles used a big sec-
ond quarter and CHS woes
from the free throw line to.
edge the shorthanded Dawgs
45-41 in overtime.
The Eagles moved on to
face Fort Walton Beach in
Friday's championship
game. Crestview's season
ended with a 14-9 mark.
"I told them they have no
reason to hold their heads
low," said CHS coach Sarah
King, whose team had two
key players out with injuries.
"The girls came out and
wanted it this year and we


Girls basketball
formed a team. It wasn't just
a bunch of girls playing bas-
ketball. That's what got us
the 14-9 record."
The win over the Bulldogs
was the first for the Eagles in
four tries this season. It also
was the second overtime
game the teams played.
Donielle Campbell was
the big-time player for
Niceville in overtime, scor-
ing eight of her 17 points.
She hit two shots from the
field and was a perfect 4-of-4
from the free throw line.
"She is shooting better
than 80 percent from the free
throw line, so we just wanted
the ball in her hands/' Eagles
coach Jerome Strutchen said.
"Even though we got
down by four (late in the
fourth quarter), they stayed
focused and got the game
into overtime."
Tera Gainer scored four of
Crestview's first eight points
as the Bulldogs jumped to


HOBOES, from page 10


quarter put LHS ahead to
stay at'36-35. Feagins later
scored on a putback that
put Laurel Hill ahead by
three points.
The Hoboes then went
to an effective delay game,
forcing Central to foul.
LHS hit enough free
throws to maintain a safe
lead.


an early 8-2 lead, and
appeared ready to run away
with the game with just over
three minutes left in the first
quarter. But Arianna Roper
and Jasmine Jordan would
have none of that as they
each scored five points as
Niceville led 14-12 at the
end of the first quarter.
The Eagles' defense con-
trolled things in the second
quarter as Niceville held
Crestview to two points and
built a 21-14 lead.


The Hoboes hit 17 of 22
free throws overall,
including 12 straight in
one stretch.
"Best we've shot all
year," Varnum said.
Haley Kimbrough led
Central with 16 points.
Pa\ton defeated Rocky
Ba\ou 51-16 in Thursday's
second senemifinal.


"They shut us down in the
second quarter," King said.
"Their defense stopped us
and shut us down."
Niceville (16-12) was able
to maintain its seven-point
advantage throughout the
third quarter despite the fact
that Crestview's Jamia Akins
was just starting to heat up.
Akins scored five of her
game-high 20 points in the
third period. For a while it
looked as if she would carry
the Bulldogs to the win.


Akins scored nine points
in the fourth quarter as
Crestview erased the seven-
point deficit and regained
the lead.
An Akins 3-pointer with
3:09 left in the fourth gave
the Bulldogs their first lead
since late in the first period.
She followed her 3-pointer
with a 2-point basket,
increasing the Crestview
lead to 34-30 with 2:26 left in
the fourth.
Where Crestview had
Akins, the Eagles had balance.
Three Eagles scored in
double figures, including
Roper with 12 points and
Jordan with 10.
Jordan hit an old-fashion
3-point play with 53 seconds
left in the fourth quarter to
give the Eagles a 35-34 lead.
The teams traded baskets
in the last 30 seconds of the
'fourth and Niceville led 37-
36 with 17 seconds left.
But in the end, the game
was determined at the free
throw stripe.


Niceville hit 13-of-16 from
the line, including 9-of-ll in
the fourth quarter and over-
time. Crestview was 5-of-8
from the line but was just 3-
for-6 in the fourth quarter.
With the score tied 37-37,
the Bulldogs missed what
might have,been the game
winning free throw with six
seconds left.
"They came out and fought
to the very end," King said.
"We were up at the end of the
fourth quarter, but things just
happened. It seemed like at
the end of the game we could-
n't hit a free throw and they
hit all of theirs."
Crestview got starting
guard Liz Graham back from
an ankle injury, but played
without starting forward
Ashley Archie (ankle) and
key reserve Dominique
Maisonet (knee).
"What hurt us even more
was not having game time to
prepare after those injuries,"
King said. "The reason we
lost? No. But it did hurt us."


- District Boys Basketball Tournaments REESE, from page 10


What: District 1-5A tournament.
Where: Fort Walton Beach High School.
When and Who: Tuesday- No. 4 Tate vs. No. 5 Crestview
(5:30 p.m.); No. 3 Choctawhatchee vs. No. 6 Pace (7:30 p.m.).
Friday- No. 1 Fort Walton Beach vs. Tate or Crestview (5:30
p.m.); No. 2 Niceville vs. Choctawhatchee or Pace (7:30 p.m.).
Feb. 10- Championship (7 p.m.).
Advancement: Top two teams advance to the Region 1-5A
tournament starting Feb. 15.
Outlook: Crestview (8-15 entering its season finale Friday
against Laurel Hill) figures it is due for some good luck in gener-
al, and better luck against Tate in particular. The Aggies (13-10)
swept the Dawgs in two regular season meetings, winning the
first game in overtime and the rematch when CHS couldn't hold
a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter. If the Dawgs advance,
they will need to brace for Fort Walton Beach's swarming defen-
sive pressure in the do-or-die semifinal round. Crestview has
played better since switching to a perimeter-based offense.
Skylar Armstrong (11 points per game) leads CHS in scoring.
Shawn Gilbert has scored in double figures in his last six games.
A.J. Purifoy is Tate's most productive player.
Crestview coach Brian Humphrey says: "For us to win, we
are going to have to go to the free throw line and rebound. We
have gotten a lot better and a lot smarter. If we could just
rebound, we could play with anybody. We are just giving up about
a foot at every position. I'm hoping we can work on rebounding a
little bit and work on making decisions late in the ballgame. Fort
Walton Beach probably has a little bit of an edge because they
are playing at home and they are playing real well late in the year,
but it doesn't really matter once the tournament starts."
If you go: Fort Walton Beach High School is located at 400 SW
Hollywood Blvd in Fort Walton Beach. Admission is $5 per session.

What: District 1-2A tournament.,
Where: Jay High School.
When and Who: Tuesday- No. 1 Freeport vs. No. 4 Baker
(6 p.m.); No. 2 Jay vs. No. 3 Pensacola Christian (7:30 p.m.).
Feb. 10 Championship (7 p.m.).
Advancement: Top two teams advance to the Region 1-2A
tournament starting Feb. 15.
Outlook: Freeport (17-9) has given Baker fits with its 1-3-1
defense over the last two years. The Bulldogs routed the Gators
in a pair of regular season meetings this year, but Baker did give
Freeport a close tournament game after a regular season sweep
last year. Baker (8-16 entering its season finale Friday against
Bozeman) has won just one game since the New Year's holiday,
but the Gators showed they could rise up and compete with any-'
one when they beat then-district leader Jay on Jan. 19. Josh
Rose leads Baker in scoring with 14.2 points per game. Jamey
Goddin (16.3 points per game) leads three Freeport players who
average double figures in scoring.
Baker coach Mike Martello says: "We have struggled both
times we played Freeport with the pressure they create with their
1-3-1 defense. They put pressure on our ballhandlers and have
caused us to turn the ball over. They do a good job of turning
these turnovers into points with the way they push the ball up the
floor. If we can handle their pressure and get some rebounds, we
might be able to stay in the game with them."
If you go: Jay High School is located at 13863 Alabama
Street in Jay. Admission is $5 per session.

What: District 1-1 A tournament.
Where: Central High School.
When and Who: Tuesday- No. 3 Paxton vs. No. 6
Escambia Charter (4:30 p.m.); No. 4'Rocky Bayou vs. No. 5 East
Hill (6 p.m.); No. 2 Central vs. No. 7 Dr. Gainer (7:30 p.m.).
Friday No. 1 Laurel Hill vs. Rocky Bayou or East Hill (6 p.m.);
Central or Dr. Gainer vs. Paxton or Escambia Charter (7:30
p.m.). Feb. 10- Championship (7 p.m.).
Advancement: Top two teams advance to the Region 1-1 A
tournament starting Feb 15.
Outlook: This could be the most unpredictable of the local
district tournaments. The seedings won't matter much in this
bracket. No. 7 seed Dr. Gainer should be the No. 3 seed, but
had to forfeit all district wins because of use of ineligible players.
Reigning district champion and top seed Laurel Hill (18-6) has
won 40 straight games against district opponents (including one
forfeit win), but the Hoboes' district foes have played competitive-
ly against LHS. Rocky Bayou is Laurel Hill's likely opponent in
the do-or-die semifinal round, but East Hill did defeat the Knights
during the last week of regular season district play. Rocky Bayou
can create problems with its size, but the Hoboes eased past the
Knights in a pair of early-season meetings. The Knights also
could be without a key player for unspecified reasons. LHS
pounded East Hill in two regular season matchups. Jeffery
Reese (18 points per game) and Timaria McKay (13.1 points per
game) lead the Hoboes. Post players Wyatt Lee and Isaiah Raite
progressed as the season went on.
Laurel Hill coach Kent Zessin says: 'Th6 first one is a have-
to win. You don't win the first one and you go home. No matter
who your opponent is, you've got to come out with the purpose
and anticipation you are going to win it, and you've got to play
that way. Rocky Bayou played us close both times. East Hill has
gotten a lot better this year and is a team that on Ihe right night
can beat you. We've got to take both of those teams as seriously
as we would as if we were playing for the state championship."
If you go: Central High School is located at 6180 Central
School Road north of Milton. Admission is $5 per session.


Reese scored a career-
high 35 points, including 30
points in the second half.
Reese scored 35 more
points one week later
against arch-rival Paxton.
He proceeded to score 23.8
points per game over an
eight-game stretch not far
from Brad's scoring average
during his senior year.
What happened? Big.
brother came home from
Louisiana for the holidays
and gave little brother some
tough-love words of advice.
He hinted that Jeffery's
performance during the first
half of the season wouldn't
cut it in college basketball at
any level.
"When he said it, I.just lis-
tened to everything he said,"
Jeffery said. "He is in col-
lege, so he did pretty well for
himself. I look up to him as a


big brother, and then I try to
be better than he is."
The Reese brothers share
the same name, but they
possess different games.
Put them on the Phoenix
Suns and Jeffery would play
the Shawn Marion to Brad's
Amare Stoudemire.
Brad was a scoring and
rebounding machine in the
post during his time at
Laurel Hill. He routinely
produced 25-point, 15-
rebound outings.
Jeffery can play inside or
outside. He could post a
quintuple-double someday
- double figures in points,
rebounds, assists, steals and
blocks. He has come close to
some quadruple doubles
this season.
"Jeffery is more of a
shooter-slasher guard,
whereas Brad played, a lot

stretch. The Panthers forced
well over 30 turnovers and
got 30 more shots than the
Falcons.
"The girls played an awe-
some game," Kerrell said.
"We came out in the first half
and set the tempo early. And
the press was working like it
was supposed to. This was a
great ballgame for my girls."
Kiara Turner led the
Panthers with 29 points and
12 steals. Raquitta Gooden
added 22 points, 13
rebounds and five steals.
Holly Stanford contributed
eight points and seven
rebounds.


Turner, Gooden and
Stanford represented
Davidson on the All-
Conference team. Jacey
Sanders joined the trio on
the All-Tournament team.
Turner led the Panthers
for the season with 16.3
points and 5.9 steals per
game. Gooden averaged 13.1
points and 8.8 rebounds.
Stanford had 9.3 points and
4.5 assists.
The roster included

Sanders, Caitlyn Wilson,
Kenna Rogers, Jasmine

better with his back to the
basket," Zessin said. "If Brad
got within eight feet of the
goal, there was an 80 percent
chance it was going in. But
Jeffery is a little bit better
shooter than Brad and is a
little quicker."
Who wins the one-on-one
games?
"I can win one out of
three," Jeffery claims.
Reese has one more high
school season to refine his
skills and strengthen his
body to prepare for the rig-
ors of college basketball. He
seems on course to join his
brother in the Division I
ranks one day. (Florida
Atlantic is the current leader
in the recruiting clubhouse).

Younger brother steps into spotlight


Reese leads LHS to
No. 1 district seed
Kyle Wright
News Bulletin Sports Editor

LAUREL HILL Jeffery
Reese had some big shoes to
fill during his junior year in
'the Laurel Hill boys basket-
ball program.
Reese's older brother,
Brad, moved on to play
NCAA Division I basketball
at Southeastern Louisiana
after helping the Hoboes
reach the FHSAA Class 1A
state semifinals last season.


Boys basketball
Four more key cogs in the
LHS lineup also graduated.
Jeffery fit into those big
shoes as well as his older
brother's jersey and trunks.
Jeffery now dons the No. 1
jersey Brad wore as a senior,
but he also emerged as a star
in his own constellation this
winter.
The younger Reese leads
north Okaloosa County boys
basketball players in scoring
with 18 points per game. His
performance helped the
Hoboes to an 18-6 record
entering their regular season


finale late Friday at
Crestview. Laurel Hill
earned 'the No. 1 seed for
next week's District 1-1A
tourney at Central.
"This season, without
Brad being here, he is now
able to create an identity for
himself," LHS coach Kent
Zessin said. "He has really
come along here the latter
part of the season. I think he
figured that if he wants to
follow in his brother's foot-
steps and play Division I bas-
ketball, he's got to pick it up,
and he has done that."
Jeffery Reese was Laurel
Hill's second-leading scorer


and rebounder last season,
but he saw himself as a sup-
port player. He would lock
down defensively on oppos-
ing teams' top perimeter
players, but otherwise
deferred to his older team-
mates during the Hoboes'
tourney run.
Laurel Hill needs Reese to
take center stage during its
regional title defense.
Zessin said Reese elevated
his game to a higher level
starting with Laurel Hill's
home win Jan. 5 against East
Hill..

News Bulletin Sports Editor

PAXTON Sally Feagins
wasn't going to let a little
foul trouble end her Laurel
Hill girls basketball career.
Feagins scored 10 of her
20 points in the fourth quar-
ter as the Hoboes rallied for a
45-38 win against Central
during the District 1-1A tour-
nament semifinals in the
Paxton School gym.
Laurel Hill earned its first
playoff berth since
2004. The Hoboes also
earned a shot at Class
1A No. 1 Paxton in
tonight's district
championship game.
"That was our goal
right there. We want-
ed to make it to this FE,
game against the No. 1
team in the state," Laurel Hill
coach Scott Varnum said.
"You always want that
chance."
Laurel Hill beat Central
twice during the regular sea-
son, so the Jaguars threw
some wrinkles into their game
plan for the third meeting.
Central pressured LHS all
over the court, presumably to
wear down the shorthanded
Hoboes.
The Jaguars also gave up
on trying to chase Feagins on
defense. Instead, they 'held
their ground on Feagins'
drives and tried to draw
offensive fouls.


Crestview's girls basketball
season ended Wednesday
with a loss against Niceville.
See story on Page 7

The plan worked. Feagins,
a senior guard who leads
north Okaloosa County in
scoring, had two fouls in the
first three minutes. She
picked up her third foul just
before halftime,, and another
J early in the fourth
quarter.
Katie Free (17
points) and Mercedes
Day (six points) kept
Laurel Hill in striking
distance with Feagins
on the, bench. Three
fouls in the first half
GINS for Central leading
scorer Daysha Enfinger also
offset Feagins' absence.
Varnum sent Feagins back
into the game with 7:04 left
and LHS down 30-25. She
promptly sparked a 6-0 run
that got the Hoboes back in
the game.
"I felt like I let the team
down with those unneces-
sary fouls," Feagins said. "I
got frustrated, but when I got
the fourth foul, I knew I had
to step it up. I knew if I got
down, my teammates would
get down."
Free's baseline shot mid-
way through the fourth

Davidson girls claim county


hoops championship


Lady Panthers rout Lewis
73-39 in title game
Special to the News Bulletin

Davidson's girls basketball team
peaked at the perfect time.
The Panthers claimed the
Okaloosa County Conference girls
basketball tournament title with a 73-
39 victory against No. 4 seed Lewis
on Thursday in the Davidson gym-
nasium.
The No. 2 seed Panthers (14-1)

of victory this season.
"I am so proud of what they
accomplished this year and how they
came together not just as a team,
but as a family," Panthers coach
James Kerrell said.
Kerrell sensed his team would
play well in the title game, and his
players proved him correct.
Davidson led 20-9 after one quar-
ter and 40-11 at the half. Lewis went
almost three minutes without getting
the ball out of the backcourt at one
