Adam Ziglar
Crestview News Bulletin


Despite a blustery Friday morn-
ing, droves of children at Bob Sikes
Elementary School gingerly sprint-
ed around an open field to cele-
brate health and fitness.
The students participated in
"Step Up, Florida," a statewide ini-
tiative that encourages healthy,
physically fit lifestyles for people
of all ages.
The school has participated in
the event for the last four years.
This year, however, several older
faces accompanied the students.
.Parents and teachers ran along-
side their children. Outpacing the
30-degree temperatures, some stu-
dents shed their wintry overcoats
and picked up their pace as the
morning sun cut through the glade
of trees that served as a wind-
breaker from the northerly gusts.
The school's physical education
coach, Steve Geohagan, arranged
the event.
According to Geohagan, the
school tracked more than 4 million
steps last year.
Students and parents walked


throughout the day and kept track
of the number of times they went
around the field's track. One time
around the circumference roughly
equals 600 steps, Geohagan said.
At the end of each class, stu-
dents reported to volunteers the
number of times they went around
the track. Armed with clipboards,
the volunteers documented the
results in a series of grids and
columns.
On Friday morning, Geohagan
expected to attain a considerably
higher number than last year's.
But he ultimately hopes the day
dedicated to physical fitness will
teach children and adults alike
about the importance of physical.
exercise.
"Promoting kids to be physical-
ly fit is one of the top priorities
here at Bob Sikes," Geohagan said.
"We teach them running tech-
niques anything that will help
them pursue more healthy
lifestyles as they get older."
By the end of Friday, all 684 Bob
Sikes Panthers had run, and sever-
al Okaloosa County School District
leaders, including Superintendent
of Schools Alexis Tibbetts, logged

some steps around the track.
One parent volunteer, Laura
Kitchen, said it was important for
her fourth-grade daughter, Molly,
to learn the value of exercise.'
"We try to stay active as a fami-


ly," said Kitchen, who has run in a
number of long distance races and
is training to run in marathons.

Kathleen Miller has waited 63
years to receive an honor she never
expected in the first place.
After moving from England to
the United States on May 1, 1946,
Kathleen began a life with an
American GI she fell in love with
hto \ears earlier.
Moving from Leeds, an industri-
al and commercial city located in the
Yorkshire country-ide in the north
part of England, Kathleen was used
to smoky moors and the rolling,
pastoral green countryside.
She moved to Chattanooga..,
Tenn., to be with Bill, her husband.
The two will celebrate their 63rd
anniversary\ in Augu-t.
When World \Var II ended, Allied
forces returned to their re'ective
countries. Kathleen had served in
England's Royal Air Force. When
she turned 18, she joined the
Balloon Barrage Company tem-
porarily before training as an air-
craft mechanic.
Though years have passed,
Kathleen was recently honored with
a pin of recognition for her service
in the British Royal Air Force.
Kathleen recently discovered that
the Royal Air Force Association was
honoring World War II veterans
with the pin and a certificate of
appreciation when a friend from
back home called her.
The pin is inscribed with the
words "His Majesty's Armed
Forces." A royal crown garnishes
the pin and the words "Veteran" are
inscribed along the bottom.
"My friend told me that I was
due one,"she said. 'If you don't
call them I will,' she said. So I got
my pin."
While Kathleen said she is
pleased to be honored, she was just
serving her country.
"Back then there were thousands
of us," she said. "We were just fight-
ing for king and country. It's just.
one of those things you did."
Those formative years are
ingrained in Kathleen's memory.
And while the tattered threads of
war are always present, she often
prefers to think of the happy times,
like the time her husband Bill near-
ly backed his truck into her.
One evening, she was walking to
a bus stop that would take her to the
village where she was staying. In a
nearby town, a band of American

Brack enjoyed KC-135 boom operator work


John Parrott
News Bulletin Military Reporter

The United States Air
Force' recently announced
plans to build a new genera-
tion tanker/cargo aircraft to
replace the aging but venera-
ble Boeing KC-135, which
entered service in 1956. The
last KC-135 was produced in
1965.
A Request For Proposal
has been sent to prospective
manufacturers, with an antic-
ipated production start-up
date set for 2013.
Crestview resident Rick
Brack knows a thing or two
about the tanker aircraft.
Brack spent the better part
of his 21-year career and
thousands of hours on his
belly operating the in-flight
refueling controls of the KC-
135. He was a boom opera-
tor.
"For a 20-year old guy it
was the best duty going. The
traveling was great, and it
took me all over the world,"
said Brack. "But when I got
older, it became less exciting,
and more of a chore."
Even though the KC-135
was a modern equivalent of
its predecessor; the vaunted
KC-97 (which came into pro-


duction in 1949), the refueling
system and operating con-
trols were pre-WWII. This did
not substantially change until
a later aircraft, the
McDonnell-Douglas KC-10,
came along in 1981.
"The pod and fuel dispens-
ing controls were identical to
the KC-97," said Brack.
"Technology didn't catch up
until the KC-10. What a dif-
ference, though."
The operator can see the
receiver aircraft through a
wide window, which Brack
describes as about the size of
a four-person table. "That in
itself is a far more comfort-
able and secure way operate
the boom," he said.
Neither Brack, nor his
father, who served as a boom
operator on a KC-97, had that
luxury.
"We laid on our belly
while operating the controls
and looked through a slit
about three feet long by about
18 inches high."
Brack prefers to talk about
some of the more serious and
poignant moments of his
career, however. One of those
moments was also one of his
proudest, the day he received
his, wings upon graduation
from technical school at


Castle Air Force Base, Calif.
They were pinned on by
his father, retired Air Force
Chief Master Sergeant
Kenneth Brack, a former
boom operator on a Boeing
KC-97.
"I have to say that was a
big deal and something I will
always cherish," said Brack.
Another event that stands
out in his mind is one which
took place in far away Yokota,
Japan.
Brack and his crew were
based out of McConneH Air
Force Base, Kansas, and were
at Yokota doing Pacific area-
refueling missions. They had
just been cleared for take off
when the command post con-
tacted them about a desper-
ately ill woman in Kadena,
Okinawa, who needed to
be flown back to the United
States for immediate medical
treatment.
"We were headed back to
California anyway, so we
went back to the parking
apron, downloaded some of
the cargo and then flew to
Kadena, where we picked up
the lady and her medical
team. Then we flew her to
Tripler Army Hospital, in
Hawaii," said Brack.
Drama was not part of the
daily script of being a boom
operator, but there were times
when he wondered about the
next moment.
Imagine two very large air-
craft flying at speeds
upwards of 200 mph and only
20 or 30 feet apart. That is'
what Brack looked at on a
daily basis. Weather condi-
tions, downwash, bow wave,
and aerodynamics, combined
with a cocoon-like work-
space, made the job substan-
tially more difficult.
"I can think of two times I
got really concerned," says
Brack. "The first was on a
training mission and weather
was really bad. We were con-
stantly in and out of clouds
and visibility at times was
zero, and we have this B-52
trying, to park below us to
take on fuel. I couldn't see
the fins on the boom, much
less the receiver airplane, and
that posed a real problem for


BRACK

all of us. "Suddenly we are
out of the clouds and this guy
is close, really too close for
comfort, so we had to back
off."
Going into -further detail,
he added, "A boom operator
actually flies the boom. He
has these two joysticks that
operates the system. He can
fly it up, down, sideways,
left, right, and do figure
eights, but- he must get in
position for the receiver air-
craft before he can start dis-
pensing the fuel.
"Once you make the con-
nection it's a piece of cake,
but it's making the connec-
tion that gets tricky, especial-
ly in bad weather or at night,"
said Brack.
"Another time things got
dicey was during an opera-
tional mission. There was a
lot of really bad turbulence,
and we had just made contact
with the receiver aircraft. It
was so bad that I had to hook
my arm beneath the pallet I
was laying on just to hold on.
Otherwise I would have been
slung all over the compart-
ment, but at least the receiver
aircraft was bouncing up and
down in the same direction as
we were."I
The new generation KC-X
will have comfortable seats, a
camera system., and a large
viewing window, something
Brack and his father did not
have during their tenure as
boom operators.
"It's a nice touch'," Brack
said. "Manufacturers are now
considering the ones who
pump the gas, as well as the
flight crew."


919th Special Ops to receive historic honor


MIaden Rudman
Florida Freedom Newspapers
DUKE FIELD Already
brimming with decorated
airmen, the 919th Special
Operations Group is a couple
of weeks from receiving its
greatest accolade.
The Air Force Reserve
unit, for now based at Duke
Field, will receive the presti-
gious Gallant Unit Citation
on March 3.
The citation is awarded for
extraordinary heroism in
action against an armed
enemy. In the 919th group's
case, the citation is for its
combat exploits in
Afghanistan and Iraq from
Oct. 19, 2001, to July 1, 2003.
The group, which is part of
the 919th Special Operations


Wing, was activated to sup-
port Operation Enduring
Freedom. It is the first reserve
unit in the history of the Air
Force to receive the award.
"It's an honor to stand
shoulder-to-shoulder with
men and women who have
earned this award," said
Capt. Terry Lisenbee, the
wing's public affairs chief.
He said the citation also
speaks to the sacrifices fami-
lies of the group's airmen
made while their loved ones
fought in the Middle East.
The 919th group is com-
prised of the 711th and 5th
Special Operations
Squadrons, and the 919th
Operations Support
Squadron.
The 711th flies MC-130Es
from Duke, while the 5th


operates from Eglin Air Force
Base and flies MC-130Ps.
Combat Shadows refuel air-
borne helicopters and resup-
ply troops.
Folks in Crestview see the
919th group and its parent,
the 919th SOW, as theirs.
Among the ways Crestview
is showing its pride is a
reception for the unit on
March 2. The Crestview
Area Chamber of Commerce
also is selling $25 signs it
hopes to plant along the State
Road 85 entrance to Duke
that congratulate the wing
for its citation, said Mike Roy,
co-chairman of the cham-
ber's Military Affairs
Committee.
"The last two base com-
manders have lived in
Crestview. ... A lot of the


reservists that serve (at Duke)
live in Crestview." he said.
"We want to make sure they
know that they're special."
Duke is also the Army's
preferred choice to relocate
the roughly 2.,000-man 7th
Special Forces Group. It is
coming to Okaloosa County.
as a result of the Base
Realignment and Closure
process.
Meanwhile, the 919th
SOW's .future at Duke
remains uncertain. The Air
Force is retiring MC-130Es.
Combat Talon Is are low-
level, night-intrusion war-
planes used for inserting,
withdrawing and resupply-
ing Special Forces troops.
They're also used to refuel in-
flight helicopters such as
MH-53s and MH-47s.

were out late into the night
and occasionally drank too
much. While there'was rarely
any real trouble to be con-
cekri d with, theif military
police officers made sure the
GIs got home safely.
Kathleen was crossing the
street when Bill, a GI, backed
up his truck and bumped into
her. Military officers quickly
gathered in a cluster to make
sure she was OK. Bill checked
on her, too.
She was more than OK.
Before long, he was taking
her to local dances and .the
two courted briefly before
getting married in August
1944.
The couple lived in
England until the war was
over. In 1946 Bill journeyed
across the Atlantic Ocean,
returning to his southern
Tennessee roots. Kathleen fol-
lowed shortly thereafter.
Coming from a war-torn
region of the world, she has
fond memories of the simple
American embellishments
she encountered an excess
of hairpins and plenty to eat

supply in England during the
war.
And then there was a
slight culture shock of mov-
ing to the American South.
"The cultural thing wasn't
too bad," she said. "There
were some things that were
different. The slow talk of
people, coming to the South,
which was amazing to me.
And then of course the heat
- it was hot to me.

say 'sure 'nuff' and 'y'all.' "

prior to the war she could
build internal combustion
engines and set a magneto as
well as any man. But the
British military didn't pro-
mote women the way they
did men.
"My warrant officer told
me that I was the best
mechanic he had, but he
couldn't promote me," she
said.


The pin, in a way, reminds
Kathleen of a time that
segued into the rest of her
life.
"It was a tough time in a
lot of ways," she said. "They

times, but mostly you
remember the people you
met.
"We didn't get medals
much in those days, so this is
a real nice pin."

From the Edification in the church and at home


Let us therefore follow after the
things which make for peace, and
things wherewith one may edifij
another. Romans 14:19
Are you an individual that
builds up or tears others down?
In our highly competitive socie-
ty much value is placed on the
achievement of the individual.
Television shows such as
"Survivor" and "The
Apprentice" showcase the
advancement of one person
above another through intellec-
tual and physical accomplish-
ments. These programs usually
focus on one person tearing
down (either physically or psy-
chologically) another in order to
accomplish their goals. This
phenomenon is not limited to
the realm of entertainment. We
see this scenario played out in
our places of employment, our
homes, and sadly, in many of
our churches. Does the Bible
endorse such behavior?
In Romans 14, the Apostle
Paul addresses this issue. The
Roman church was made of up
people from diverse back-
grounds. Some were from a
Jewish background that adhered
to Israeli customs and laws.
Others were Gentiles that either
had no background in these cus-
toms or believed that they were
not bound by foreign traditions.
We discover that both groups
were tearing one another apart
because of their actions. The
Jews thought it unacceptable to
eat meats that were sacrifices to


idols, while the Gentiles had no
problem with the practice. There
was also turmoil because one
group observed specific days as
holy, while the other observed
all days equally. These differ-
ences led to both groups judging
each other and division within
the church at Rome.
Which side was justified in
their stance? It depended on
their individual sides.
Ultimately, both were disobey-
ing the Biblical principle of edi-
fication. The word edify literally
means to build up a structure. In
the above verse, Paul exhorts
those who compose the Roman
church to follow after those
things which spiritually build
up one another. How were they
to do this? They were instructed
to pursue those things that make
peace in the Kingdom of God.
In the realm of Christian
service, neither group was liv-
ing in opposition to the doctri-
nal teaching of the Bible. If some
were eating meat that was sacri-
ficed to pagan idols while others
ate herbs, the meat did not
destroy the work of God. If
some were observing specific
days and others were not, God
was still being worshipped. The
transgression was the bickering
and tearing down one another
over these nonessentials. They
needed to be edifying one
another instead of tearing down.
In Romans 15:1-2 Paul con-
cludes, "We then that are strong
ought to bear the infirmities of
the weak, and not to please our-
selves. Let every one of us
please his neighbour for his
good to edification." When we
have a "meat" or "days" issue
arise in our lives, we need to be


ready to pursue a path of peace
with those who might be offend-
ed with our actions. For exam-
ple, some Christians think that
worship should be exclusively
observed on Saturday, while
others think that church can only
meet on Sunday. In light of the
fact that the early church met
daily, I believe that any day of
the week is good for worship.
However, we are to be charitable
toward those who have differing
views on an issue such as this.
The time and frequency of wor-
ship is not to be a test of fellow-
ship among God's people.
The principle of edification
should also extend into our
homes. Husbands and wives can
oftentimes be very critical of the
way their spouses complete
tasks around the house. How
much more profitable would it
be for us to encourage our loved
ones in their tasks and assist


them where there is a need. We
need to return to the Biblical
example of putting others' needs
above our own. This attitude
would do much to strengthen
the institution of marriage in our
nations. Why? Because it builds
up instead of tears down. Let us
follow after the things that make
for peace and edify one another
in our churches and homes.

The Walton County Art
League will be hosting a floor
cloth workshop on Saturday,
March 10 from 8:00 a.m. until
2:00 p.m. with instructor
Kathy Harrah. Mrs. Harrah
teaches art at Maude
Saunders Elementary School.
Floor cloths, a type of rug,
have been in existence since
the 1700s. The colonists
imported floor cloths from
England to put on their floors.
They were stamped and
painted with oils and sealed
with varnishes, making them
very durable, so durable, in
fact, that some are still in exis-
tence today. These floor cloths
were an inexpensive way to
get an expensive looking
floor. Some were made to look
like inlayed marble, for exam-
ple.
The floor cloths you'll be


making will be on cotton duck
canvas and finished to
approximately 2.5 X 3 feet.
Any design is possible and no
prior painting knowledge is
necessary. Floor cloths are
really good for kitchens, din-
ing rooms and baths. You can
match an existing color
scheme or pattern. The floor
cloth workshop will be held in
the Mary Vinson Room of the
Walton County Fair Building
on Highway 83 in DeFuniak
Springs.
Preregistration is required
as space is limited. The cost
for this workshop is $35, and
depending on the design you
choose for your floor cloth
you may need to bring some
additional materials, such as
stencils, matching paint color,
etc.
To sign up, please contact

LAUREL, from 12


bonds of the first half when
Austen Stucki got the
rebound of his own missed
free throw and stuck it back
in for the score as time ran
out in the first half.
The Hoboes were confi-
dent they could overcome
the Tiger lead in the second
half.
"We got in the locker
room and coach (Kent
Zessin) was adding up a few
of the stats and how we
should have been ahead and
we just went out and con-
verted in the second half,"
McKay said. "This was a fun
game because of the team-
work.
"We all came together as
a team and pulled it out."
Reese continued to heat
things up in the second half
as he scored eight points in
the third quarter and 11 in
the fourth quarter.
But the junior wingman
wasn't a one-man show.
Graceville led 51-38 with
five minutes left in the third
quarter when the Hoboes
scored 13 unanswered
points to tie things up.
Lee started the run with a


basket from inside the paint.
Weekley followed with his
first basket of the game.
Timaria McKay con-
trolled a long defensive
rebound in the Hobo front
court and scored on a lay-
up. During Graceville's next
trip down the floor McKay
had a steal and scored again.
McKay added a 3-point
basket to finish off the run.
Neither team was -going
to go quietly into the off-sea-
son as they matched each
other score for score down
the stretch.
When Weekley's basket
rattled home and the horn
sounded, Laurel Hill fans
rushed the court and several
of the Graceville players lay
on the floor in both disap-
pointment and exhaustion.

NICEVILLE It hasn't
taken long for former
Crestview standouts
Anthony Brown and Trey
Hayes to make their presence
known on" the Okaloosa-
Walton baseball team.
Brown, a 23rd round draft
pick of the Cincinnati Reds
last spring has had the big-
ger impact, having started
every game in left field.
He's hitting right around
.300 and recently connected
for his first college homerun
as the Raiders beat Faulkner
10-2.
Two days later, Hayes had
a pinch-hit single as OWC
beat Cleveland State, Tenn.,
9-3.
OWC coach Keith Griffin
couldn't be happier with the
former Bulldogs.
"Anthony has been in our
four hole (in the batting
order) and he has the mak-
ings of a very good player,"
Griffin said. "He's still a
work in progress, trying to
learn the game a little better
because he spent a lot of time
playing high school football,
which is good.
"I'm glad he did because
it. gives him some tough-
ness." "
Griffin was equally com-
pliiiienritary of Hayes as he-
spoke of his versatility.
"Trey's really played well
for us when we've called on
him to do whatever we've
needed," he said. "We've
played him on the corners in
the outfield and on the cor-
ners in the infield.
"We've played him at sec-
ond. He's a guy that we ask
to do everything and the
other day he got off the
bench and got a big pinch-hit
single for us." .
Hayes has been locked
into a season-long battle with
fellow freshman Whitney
McKinney, and Griffin thinks
both players have benefited
from the competition.
"I think it's helped both of
them a bunch," he said.

College, where he and Anthony Brown are teammates. (Photos by Devon Ravine, Florida Freedom Newspapers.)


"That's the beautiful thing
about competition it either
makes you get better or it
pulls you under because you
can't handle it.
"They're having a nice
battle through the' month of
January and into early
February. We'll keep running
them out there, and whoever
plays the best will play dur-
ing conference."
Hayes admits he wants to
be on the field all the time,
but he understands the
process.
"It's tough," he said.
"Being a competitor you
always want to be out there.
"But I just have to play in
a role that coach decides for
me and do the best I can to
help the team win."
Brown said the biggest
adjustment to the college
game has been the number of
games the team plays.
"We play about four
games a week, and I was use
to about one or two a week
when I was back in high


school," he said. "We played
just about as many games
already in three weeks as we
did our whole season in high
school."
Batting fourth has been a
welcome :challenge for
Brown as well.
"It's been a big adjust-
ment, mainly just trying to
come through each time and
get runners in," he said.
Griffin believes good high
school coaching and strong
families have prepared
Brown and Haves for success
in college on and off the
field.
"I think coach (CHS base-
ball coach Tim) Gillis really
did a good job of getting
those guys ready to come
down here and play," Griffin
said. "They're both great
students and they're great
people, too.
"As good of baseball play-
ers as they are they are bet-
ter human beings, and that's
quite a compliment to them
and their parents."

Hammonds honored to join All-Sports Hall of Fame


Perry Ballard
Florida Freedom Newspapers

Tom Hammonds ranks his
latest award as one of the
most important he's received.
That says a lot, considering
his celebrated basketball
career.
Arguably the best player
ever to come from Okaloosa
County, the 6-foot-9
Hammonds was inducted
into the All Sports Association
Hall of Fame on Wednesday
during a ceremony at the
Emerald Coast Conference
Center on Okaloosa Island.
Also inducted in the Class
2007 was Fort Walton Beach
attorney and civic leader Don
Anchors.
They are the ninth and
tenth members of the All
Sports Hall of Fame. Previous
inductees were pro baseball
pitcher Don Sutton, former
Auburn and NFL football star


Jackie Burkett, former
Heisman Trophy winner
Danny Wuerffel, former
Florida State receiver E.G.
Green, and four local civic
leaders who have been
involved in youth athletics:
Bettye Campbell, Jerry
Brigante, Buck Smith
Houston Harrison.
The two recipients received
plaques at the luncheon and
later had their pictures
unveiled at the All Sports
Association display at the
conference center.
For Hammonds,
Wednesday's ceremony was
very much a family affair. He
was introduced by his son,
Tom Hammonds IV, with
many family members in the
audience.
"This is a tremendous
award for me and my family,"
said Hammonds, who won
the 2000 All Sports profession-
al award. "It is one of the


greatest accomplishments I
have had in my life."
Hammonds, who starred
at Crestview High School
before going on to a four-year
career at Georgia Tech and
then a 12-year NBA career,
also got a surprise at the
luncheon.
His Georgia Tech coach,
Bobby Cremins, appeared via
videotape to heap praise on
his former player.
"He is one of the big rea-
sons why I have been success-
ful as a coach," Cremins said.
Hammonds had his num-
ber retired after a celebrated
career at Tech where he aver-
aged 16.9 points and 7.2
rebounds a game for four
years. He was picked in the
first round of the 1989 NBA
draft by the Washington
Bullets and played for three
other teams before finishing
his pro career.
Hammonds also spent sev-

eral years on the pro drag rac-
ing circuit before taking over
his own car dealership.
Basketball, however, was
the vehicle that gave him the
most satisfaction.


"I was blessed to play a
sport that I could play for
free," Hammonds said. "It
took me to a lot of places and
allowed me to do a lot of
things."

Florida Freedom
Newspapers

LAUREL HILL Like
a cat with nine lives, the
Laurel Hill basketball
team stayed alive in the
Class A regional quarter
finals on Thursday.
A Daren Weekley bas-
ket with two seconds left
capped a mad comeback
as the Hoboes moved on
with a 77-75 win over
Graceville.
"Daren was in the right
place at the right time, and
they didn't have time to
get it back, and that was
the ball game," senior
guard Timaria McKay
said.
Laurel Hill (22-6) plays
at Tallahassee John Paul II
on Tuesday in the region
semifinals.
It's a good thing the
Hoboes finished better
than they started because
they started horribly.
After leading 8-5 early
in the first quarter, Laurel
Hill went ice cold shoot-
ing and.the Tigers (19-10)
roared to an 18-9 lead at
the end of the first quarter.
But the misery was. just
beginning for the home
team.
Three minutes into the
second quarter Graceville
led by 16 points thanks in
large part to Laurel Hill's
inability to finish shots
close to the basket or
make free throws..
Eleven minutes into the
game, Jeffrey Reese had
yet to score for the Hoboes
and if not for the play of
Wyatt Lee the game might
well have been out of
reach.
Lee had 11 of his 17
points in the first half as
Laurel Hill kept within
striking distance.
"I had a bad game
against Central (in the dis-
trict championship game)
and I didn't score any
points," Lee said. "I felt
like I had to step up and
help my team and try my
hardest.
The Tigers seemed
intent on wearing down
Laurel Hill with their
deeper bench.
Throughout the game
Graceville substituted lib-
erally as it tried to keep
fresh defenders in the
game.
And while the fresh
legs might have worked
on defense, they did seem
to hamper the Tigers at
times on the offensive end
of the floor.
Willie Kirkland was a
force for Graceville scor-
ing 17 of his game-high 35
points in the first half.
When Reese started
heating up the Hoboes
responded and began
chipping away at the Tiger
lead thanks in part to a
defense that forced seven
Graceville turnovers in
the second quarter.
Graceville led by 11
points in the closing sec-
