Small turnout, big ideas at neighborhood watch seminar


Adam Ziglar
Crestview News Bulletin
Suppose you leave town for the
weekend. Eager for a getaway, you
and the family pull out of the
garage and drive away as the door
oozes slowly to the dosed position.
While away, "plastic wrapped"
newspapers begin to litter your


driveway and multiply as days
pass.
The day before you return
home, a truck backs up to your
home, pries open the front door
and takes your television, your
jewelry and your kids' Playstation.
You don't know your neighbors.
They see the truck and assume
you're moving or that you either


have sloppy lawn habits or you no
longer care about current events.
Because you don't know your
neighbors, you've created for your-
self an island of solitude where
burglars and thieves visit when
looking for an easy target.
. David Bracewell doesn't have a
crystal ball, but he has been a law
enforcement officer long enough to


know that this scenario is not
uncommon.
Lawmen say a neighborhood
watch program would help pre-
vent these and other crimes.
"Basically a neighborhood
watch is neighbors watching out
for their neighbors," said

CHS Coach Ernie Martin talks to Bob Sikes Elementary School third grader RicNisha Bembo, who is preparing to run a race. Martin tells her
to run to the opposite end where she'll find out her time in the race. Bembo is one of more than 150 students who competed in this year's
North Okaloosa Special Olympics.

While some people prepare to
win a race, some just want to feel
the wind beat against their face
and hear the explosive applause of
an enamoured audience.
More than 150 area students and
adults did just that in this year's
North Okaloosa Special Olympics.
The Friday morning event was
held at Crestview High School's
track and field.
Nestled underneath a powder-
blue sky filled with one-dimen-
sional clouds, the participants
eagerly ran and jumped and
laughed and hugged.
The event was a reunion for
many participants. Old friendships
were reborn and some new friends
were made.
While the event has been an
annual tradition for about eight
years, this is the first time that all
schools in North Okaloosa County
participated.
People of all ages filled the
bleachers and gathered in clusters
on the track, waiting to run in a
race or to cheer for a friend who


was bearing down on the finish
line.
Barbara Lundy, coordinator for
the event, was excited to see so"
many new faces rounding the
track.
"This event builds esteem with
those participating," Lundy said.
"It makes them happy to come out
and enjoy their friends."
Lundy has, worked with the
Special Olympics program since
1977, working with many disabled
children in Okaloosa County.
Last year, about 30 people par-
ticipated in the event, Lundy said.
Now that area schools are
involved, the event is drawing stu-
dents from every school in North
Okaloosa County.
"It's been a great endeavor,"
said Keri Sammons, a Bob Sikes
Elementary School teacher who
brought a troop of students.
Karen Wooten is North
Okaloosa County's adaptive phys-
ical education coach. She is a rov-
ing physical 'education teacher
who works with students in an'
occupational therapy capacity.
Throughout the school year, she
has encouraged school participa-

tion in this year's event.
"These kids are really excited to
be here today," she said, while
preparing to begin the day's
events.
In all, participants competed in
the 25-, 50-, 100- and 200-meter
races, the standing jump, the long
jump and the softball throw.
At the beginning of each race,


CHS Coach Ernie Martin talked to
the runners. Firing off his whistle,
the students gushed down the
track. Applause rolled throughout
the stands and fans yelled the
names of their students.

some pushed through the finish
line, moving quicker as the crowd

Honoring the past,

The turnout may not have
been large, but there was
plenty of energy in the room
on Friday during the first
black history youth night,
hosted by the Carver-Hill
Historical and Memorial
Society.
"This ceremony is to
honor historians and show
our future through our
youth," said J.D. Compton,
one of the coordinators for
the event.
"We don't know who
might be our next historian


rating the
or our next president," said
Compton. "You never know."
The celebration included
an hour of song and dance
performances by local youth,
as well as the recitation of a
few poems. Rap songs by
Chris Compton and guest
speaker Prophet Frank
brought the crowd to its feet.
"This is something for all
parents to encourage their
kids to come out to," said
Shamira Hayes, who helped
organize the event.
"The goal is to get them
(the youth) out and involved
in their community and
understand their history,"

By remembering used
history, people come enco

Frank.
As a youngster, Fike,
he didn't under-
stand the history of
his culture, said Frank. It
wasn't until he was older that
he heard more about histori-
cal figures such as Rosa Parks
and appreciated what they
sacrificed to give future gen-
erations a better life.
"We shouldn't take it light-
ly our freedom," said Frank.
Martin Luther King Jr. was
seeking freedom for all
mankind, not just for one race
of mankind, he added.

may soon be altered.
Presently, 400 acres of
fields, wetlands and wood-
lands sit opposite the
municipal building situated
along State Road 85.
But that view may
include 890 homes, 22 acres
. of new businesses and 20
acres of park land in the


coming years. The city
council recently approved a
development agreement
between the city and devel-
opment company,
Percentages, LLC. of
Destin, for the construction
of a master planned com-
munity that will quadruple
Laurel Hill's current popu-
lation of less than 600 peo--
ple.
According to developer
Bill Slattery, the develop-
ment is expected to bring


an estimated 2,000 new res-
idents to the area. The new
community would stretch
just north of Third Avenue
along the east side of Stokes
Road and cross east over
Thomas Road.
The city council also
agreed to have Laurel Hill's
comprehensive plan sent to
the Florida' Department of,
Community Affairs for
review. The document wag

ration for future growth. If

It takes a lot of backing to
hold this type of event,
because if it's not done right
the message can be lost, he
added.
Frank agreed.
"We need to do more
things like this," he said. "We
need to have the community

only task left will be to pur-
chase the property, which
the developer has under
contract to buy until mid-
summer, said Slattery.
"The cost for us to pur-

the improvements will aver-

added.


Sheriff's Office
scam notice
The Okaloosa County
Sheriff's Office is alerting the
public about a possible scam
circulating in the, area. It tar-
gets people advertising items
for sale. Sellers have reported
that a prospective buyer, usu-
ally from another country,
sends a check for a much larg-
er amount than the actual
sales price, then tells them to
just cash it anyway. The buyer
says they'll send someone to
pick up the remainder of the
money arid the item for sale.
The sellers are later told to just
wire the money back to the
buyer.
Investigators are advising
the public to verify the
authenticity of any checks
they receive with their banks
or financial institutions.

River Reservoir


proponent not ready


Jeff Ayres
Florida Freedom Newspapers

The Yellow River
Reservoir Committee and
the Northwest Florida Water
Management District have
different ideas on how to
ensure a plentiful future
water supply in Okaloosa
County.
The committee supports
damming the river to form a
reservoir. The Water
Management District says
the Floridan Aquifer can
continue to provide enough
water.
The two sides are expect-
ed to meet soon with
Okaloosa County commis-
sioners and others to try to
reach a consensus on how to
preserve water in a growing
county.
No date has been set for
the workshop, but commis-
sioners support having a
meeting, which was pro-
posed by the Jerry Mitchem,
the committee's acting presi-
dent.
"Instead of having one
opinion, let's work togeth-
er," Mitchem said. "Let's


have a (solution), not a
Band-Aid. It's time this
county looks at what's best
for the county."
The committee has advo-
cating damming the Yellow
River for a number of years.
It says the dam will keep a
vast supply of water for
Okaloosa, offset a diminish-
ing aquifer and stop saltwa-
ter intrusion.
A dam also could gener-
ate millions of dollars
through the sale of hydro-
electric power to a utility,
Mitchem says.
"We want a place that will
give us water now and in the
future and give our grand-
children (safe) potable
water," he said.
But the Water
Management District has
said the aquifer, if not over-
used, can provide enough
water to support the coun-
ty's growth through 2025
and beyond.
District officials also say
the dam is environmentally
risky and could harm wet-
lands in the north county by
the flooding needed to form
the reservoir, They also point


to give up

to what they call inconclu-
sive hydroelectric benefits.
"And that's just the (U.S.
Army) Corps of Engineers
report," said Ron Bartel, the
Water Management
District's division director.
"That's not all the issues."
District officials also con-
tend the land where the
reservoir would be built is
bound by law to be used for
conservation and can't be
flooded.
The committee and the
Water Management District
have accused each other of
relying on faulty data to
make their cases.
County Commissioner
James Campbell hopes the
meeting will offer a direction
instead of being a rehash of
each side's arguments.
"We need to know what
information are we going to
get that we haven't heard
before?" he said. "This is one
of the most important issues
we deal with."
Commissioner Bill
Roberts added the workshop
"is going to let us answer a
lot of questions" in a face-to-
face setting.

S bmit your questions.


Week is all about saving


Kari Barlow
Florida Freedom Newspapers

Maybe you take money
right out of every paycheck
and plop it into a savings
account.
Maybe you devote a sec-
ond job to an emergency
fund.
Or maybe you dig under
the couch cushions and
throw all the change in a jar.
Elaine Courtney, chair-
man of Okaloosa Saves,
doesn't sweat the details.
She just wants you and
everyone you know to get
started.
"Savings is a habit," says
Courtney, a family and con-
sumer sciences extension
agent for Okaloosa County.
"It's just like brushing your
teeth in the morning. It just
takes a little discipline."
Okaloosa Saves kicks off
2007 America Saves/
Okaloosa Saves Week on
Monday, Feb. 25. The cam-
paign wraps up Saturday,
March 3 with a financial fair
at Santa Rosa Mall.
Okaloosa Saves a local
arm of America Saves is
supported by a coalition of
more than 30 local banks
and credit unions and indi-
viduals. This year the
group aims to enroll at least
500 new savers. "Build
wealth, not debt," Courtney
says. "That's our little slo-
gan. The amount is not as
important as the act."
These days, that's a big-


ger challenge than ever for
Americans.
Consider:
The nation's current
saving rate is somewhere
around 1 percent a low
that hasn't been reached
since the Great Depression.
In the past year, overall
consumer debt has risen 38
percent for households at all
income levels.
The best way to curb that
trend is to teach young peo-
ple about the benefits of sav-
ing, said Donna Kidney, vice
chairman of Okaloosa Saves.
"We're a nation of debt,
especially high credit card
debt, and if we can instill in
our younger generation the
importance of savings ... the
credit card cycle would go
away," says Kidney, vice
president of branch adminis-
tration at First City Bank.
Once enrolled, members
of Okaloosa Saves receive
the "American Saver"
newsletter four times a year.
They also have easy
access to no- or low-fee, low
minimum savings accounts
at the following Okaloosa
financial institutions Beach
Community Bank, Compass
Bank, Eglin Federal Credit
Union, First City Bank, First
National Bank & Trust, First
National Bank of Crestview
and Vanguard Bank.
Membership is free, and
the only obligation is to
develop a specific savings
goal, open an account if
needed and make regular


deposits.
"I think we've gotten the
message out that we are not
trying to sell anybody any-
thing," Courtney says. "We
are here to offer financial
education to the community
where needed."

RELIGION


SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2007


Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born of water
and of the Spirit, he cannot
enter into the kingdom of God.
-John 3:5
What does the Bible teach
about the new birth? Some
believe that being born
again involves a conscious
decision on our part to allow
God into our lives. Many
books have been written
along these lines. However,
Jesus teaches us that the new
birth is all of God. It is
important to understand
that we are called from a
state of spiritual death unto
spiritual life by the working
of the Spirit of God and not
our own will.
The Jewish leader
Nicodemus approaches
Jesus at night and acknowl-
edges that Jesus is indeed a
teacher sent from God. This
was contrary to the general
beliefs of the Pharisees of
that day. Instead of compli-
menting this ruler, Jesus
says, "Except a man be born
again he cannot see the
kingdom of God." Jesus was
telling Nicodemus that there
was nothing in his life that
would warrant entrance into
God's kingdom.
This echoes the writing of


the Apostle Paul in Romans
3:12. In reference to all of
mankind he writes, "They
are all gone out of the way,
they are together become
unprofitable; there is none
that doeth good, no, not
one." No one is fit for the
kingdom of God apart from
being born again by the
Spirit of God. When Jesus
addressed this subject with
Nicodemus he was not giv-
ing instructions, but stating
a fact about the new birth.
Initially, Nicodemus
thought Jesus was talking
about a natural birth. In
John 3:5, Jesus emphasizes
that the new birth is spiritu-
al. There is a similarity
between a natural and spiri-
tual birth. The child has no
authority whatsoever in
either. Did you get to choose
your parents? Did you
determine your date of
birth? Obviously the answer
to both of these questions is
no. Similarly, you have no
power in the new birth. It is
all of God. In Psalms 110:3,
David exclaims, "Thy peo-
ple shall be willing in the
day of thy power." He
works in the lives of his chil-
dren according to his own
will.
In John 3:8, Jesus likens
the work of the Spirit to the
wind. The wind blows
where it pleases. Man has
made many technological
advances through the years,


but he has not yet seized con-
trol of the wind. Floridians
are well aware of this fact!
God is the only one who can
exercise control of this force..
The Spirit of God works
the same way. God's children
are born again or quickened
according to his good pleas-
ure. All of God's children
will experience the new
birth. The time and circum-
stances of the new birth are
all under God's sovereign
pleasure. It is also important
to consider that while we
cannot see the wind, we do
see its effects. When the
Spirit of God works in the
life of an individual, a
change is made. A hatred of
spiritual things is changed to
a desire to seek the Lord.
There is a love of Christ
where none existed. This
change was apparent in the
life of Nicodemus, who
sought out Jesus.
If the new birth is a work
entirely of God, then what is
our responsibility in
Christian service? When we
are touched by the Spirit of
God, then we are command-
ed to dedicate our lives
wholly in his service. In
Romans 6:13, Paul writes,
"Neither yield ye your mem-
bers as instruments of
unrighteousness unto sin:
but yield yourselves unto
God, as those that are alive
from the dead, and your
members as instruments of
righteousness unto God."


This is a commandment to
those who have experienced
the new birth. We are com-
manded to live righteously
in this world. This cannot
occur unless we are born
again. Righteous living is an
active battle for all of God's
children. There will be times
when the battle is great.
Some will stumble along the
way, but if the Spirit of God
resides in us we are able to
live. righteously. It is my
prayer that God would bless
us all in our Christian serv-
ice.

The Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce presents


SEMINAR, continued from 1


Bracewell, a community
service officer with the
Crestview Police Depart-
ment.
Bracewell hosted a neigh-
borhood watch seminar
Thursday night at the police
department headquarters.
While only three local citi-
zens turned out for the event,
they wvere eager to start
watches in their neighbor-
hoods.
Bracewell and Wayne
Grandstaff, a fellow commu-
nity police officer, are work-
ing to build neighborhood
watches in communities.
"Criminals aren't going to
work harder than they have
to," Bracewell told the atten-
dants. "They're going to tar-
get neighborhoods where cit-
izens aren't active."
Bracewell cited several
recent instances when bur-
glars roamed from house to
house, literally within walk-
ing distance, and stole from
the homeowners.
Years ago, numerous
neighborhood watch groups
served as blankets that
smothered area crime.
However, as the city has
grown, and as police staffing
changes have affected the
police department, the city's
number of neighborhood


watches has declined to near-
ly none.
Keith Horton moved to
Crestview from a burgeoning
community in Kansas City,
Kansas.
There, he worked with the
crime analyst department
with a police department. He
was in an active neighbor-
hood watch program that
was comprised of people
who lived in town homes.
The community had very lit-
tle crime, he recalled.
Now living in the
Ridgecrest subdivision off
Lloyd Street, he is part of a
124-home subdivision that in
recent months has had bur-
glaries and other criminal
mischief.
Horton wants to work as a
coordinator in his neighbor-
hood. He has some ideas and
hopes to find neighbors who
are interested in the watch.
"A lock is to keep the hon-
est person honest," Horton
said.
Bracewell and Grandstaff
are available to residents
who are interested in creating
watches in their neighbor-
hoods.
To learn more about start-
ing a neighborhood watch in
your community, call
Bracewell at 689-2782.


On March 24, the Crestview Police Department's
Community Services Division is hosting a drug-free
community cleanup in the area of Washington and
Lincoln Streets and School Avenue. The event starts at

applauded their effort.
Delores Baker's 9-year-old
soh, Jeffrey, competed in the
softball throw event.
Standing at the end of a
tape measure that stretched
for several yards in front of
him, he tossed the ball and
the crowd's eyes followed its
path as it made an egg-
shaped impression in the
porous grass and sand.
Delores was glad that her
son had the opportunity to
play with so many children.
"It's great to have this
event here with all the
schools involved," she said.
Before the day was over,
the throngs of famished ath-
letes were treated to a feast


donated by Taylor Made
Subs, Publix and Tom
Thumb Food Stores.
Heather Bridges is a
teacher with the Varying
Exceptionalities program at
Bob Sikes Elementary
School.
She was pleased that her
students had the chance to
compete and to bond with
other students.
Her students wore bright-
ly colored tie-dyed shirts
that bore the school's name
on the front.
"It gives them the oppor-
tunity to excel in some-
thing," she said. "They're
just so excited. They win
because they finish the race."

Crestview News Bulletin I 7


SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2007 LOCAL


AMVETS roll up their sleeves for bloodmobile


John Parrott
Crestview News Bulletin


Thankfully, the North-
west Florida Blood bank
does not keep score of those
it turns down, but the rejec-
tion rate is about 90 percent
of those who wish to
donate.
One of the reasons is both
a blessing and a curse, espe-
cially here, said Meredith
McCann, nurse in charge of
the mobile operation.
"This area is filled with
military people, and they
are more than willing to
donate blood, but the prob-
lem is many of them are dis-
qualified because of where
they have been."
It seemed that way
recently as the Northwest
Florida Blood Center's
bloodmobile sat in the park-
ing lot of AMVETS Post 35
in Crestview.
The first eight people
who came to donate were
rejected because of health,
or other reasons.
Surprisingly, as old as the
blood center is, and as well


Breanna Hartz and Steve Dominguez were among tho
who helped replenish the Northwest Florida Blood
Center's .blood supply.


Post 35 Ladies Auxiliary president, becomes the first person of the
day to donate blood.


known it has become, giving
blood is not a top priority
with the American public.
"Only about 5 percent of
the eligible population gives
blood," said McCann.
"But with every pint of
blood we get, it directly
impacts saving three lives,
and one of the lesser known
facts about us is the blood
we get stays here, in the


local area."
However, there are per-
sistent old wives tales and
rumors about who can and
cannot give blood, and that
is a problem the blood cen-
ter is trying to overcome.
"For instance, many peo-
ple are of the opinion if they
take heart medication, or
have high blood pressure, or
diabetes, we can't take their


blood. That's not the case
at all," said McCann.
"Foreign service is one of
the legitimate problems we
have. We have to know
where you were, for how
long, and the last time you
were abroad. Just being
out of the country for a few
weeks or even a couple of
months does not arbitrarily
disqualify you from donat-


ing," said McCann.
"There are other issues
we have to know about such
as general health, types of
diseases and so on, but we
would like the public to
support us better."
"It only takes about 45
minutes to complete the
transaction, from start to
finish. And by donating a
pint of blood, you will save
three lives."
The first person to pass
the rigorous screening
process was AMVETS Post
35 Ladies Auxiliary


President Duan Byrd.
"The best advice we can
give the public is go to the
bloodmobile and talk to the
technicians. Tell them what
they need to know and they
will decide if you are a can-
didate or not," said
McCann.
"One of the mistakes the
public often makes is they
assume since .they went to
Canada or Mexico or South
America on a cruise or short
business trip they are dis-
qualified. That is clearly
not the case," she said.

'I .'.. -y . ,

Safety is always a concern when it
comes to kids and sports, making it
especially important to monitor both
the quality of your child's equipment
as well as the status of the fields
he'll playing on.

SAFETY

a concern with
kids and sports

Kids and sports-related injuries are
like peanut butter and jelly: inseparable
and forever linked together. Nearly every
child knows or has been the kid in. the
class with the cast on his arm, getting
classmates to sign the cast as a means of
getting well. Thanks to kids being kids,
injuries are common among the world's
youngsters, especially those heavily
involved in sports.
A number of factors can influence how
likely a child is to suffer a sports-related
injury. Fortunately, just as many preven-
tive measures can be taken to make sure
children learn more about the joys of com-
petition than the pain of the emergency
room.
Monitor and. maintain all equip-
ment. Children often fall victim to dilapi-
dated equipment, some of which is used
for far too long. Though sports equipment
doesn't have an expiration date, like
everything else such equipment can see
its effectiveness reduced greatly thanks to
the wear and tear of yearly use. Helmets,
be they for baseball, football or just riding
bikes, and other protective gear such as
pads or eyewear should be inspected on a
regular basis to ensure they're still capa-
ble of doing what they're supposed to do:
protect your children.
Protect playing surfaces. Run-down
playing surfaces are often the culprit
when children are injured playing sports.
Be it a pothole-laden blacktop or a base-
ball field filled with gopher holes, such
surfaces can be very damaging to chil-
dren, leading to serious injuries that could
affect their ability to compete the rest of
their lives. Fields littered with sink holes
or holes caused by critters can result in
serious knee or ankle injuries. If such
fields exist in your town or city, write
your local politician with your concerns.
Fields that are fenced in are less likely to
fall victim to critters that dig up turf, leav-
ing them in shoddy condition for children
just looking to have a good time.
Children should also avoid playing on
concrete surfaces, such as concrete basket-
ball courts, tracks or hockey rinks. Falls
onto concrete can cause significant dam-
age, and running on such surfaces can
take its toll on a child's knees or even
cause painful shin splints over time.
Pay attention. Though it's impossi-
ble to keep an eye on your kids at all
times, doing so as much as you can will
go a long way to preventing injury.
Particularly when involved in athletics,
children have a tendency to get over-
aggressive as their competitive fires burn,
which can result in serious injury. Parents
should hammer home the idea that a
game is just a game and to always avoid
letting their emotions get the best of them.
Organized sports leagues, especially,
should have a trained health professional
on hand at all times. Instant reaction to
injury can often determine how serious
the injury might be, so having a trained
professional on hand should be mandato-
ry for any league your child joins.

Brotherly love to continue


Randy Dickson
Florida Freedom Newspapers

CRESTVIEW Soon
brothers Stephon and
Tysean Thrash will trade
the warmth and sugar
white sands of Northwest
Florida for a different ter-
rain and shades of
sparkling white.
The football-playing tan-
dem for Crestview will- be
taking their act to the Rocky
Mountain region and Snow
College, a junior college in
Ephraim, Utah.
The duo signed their
national letters of intent in a
ceremony in the CHS media
center Tuesday.
Last season the Badgers
finished No. 2 in the nation,
and the brothers think they
can help Snow take the next
step toward a national title.
But more than winning
championships, Snow gives
the Thrashes a chance to
play together for two more
years.
"They called us," Tysean
said. "We had different
offers, but they called us
one night and they kept
talking.
"They kept calling and
one night they offered us a
full scholarship. They were
the only school that offered
us a full scholarship, so we
took them ,up on it."
He also added that it was
important to their mom that
they had the chance to play


Crestview team to
compete in elite
national soccer
tournament

From staff reports

More than 11,000 of
the nation's most talent-
* ed feet will compete in
Birmingham. Ala., in
March at the Red
Diamond Vulcan Cup
: soccer tournament.
More than 300 teams
from 14 states were cho-
sen from 400 teams \ho
fought for the chance to
show their skills at the
" top-level tournament,
one of a handful of such
competitions in the
country.
Members of Crest-
view's Wave FC will be
traveling to Birming-
ham to compete in the
13-year-old division.
"This year for the
first time, because of
unprecedented interest
to compete in the Red
Diamond Vulcan Cup,
we have grown the tour-
nament to a two-week-
end event from its previ-
ous one-weekend sta-
tus," said Stanley "Skip"
Brock, tournament
director.
"Every year the talent
increases and with that,
we see more scouting
from colleges and uni-
versities with top-level
soccer programs. The
USA team players we
w ill cheer for during the
SWorld Cups of tomor-
Srow are coming here to
I play the best and
become the best."

together.
Stephon thinks the com-
petition instilled in them at
Crestview will help as they
take on the new challenges
of college ball.
"Me and my brother, we
work hard," he said. "We
work real hard.
"I'm hoping when I go
up there that we can help
the football team go to the


top."
Not only will they be on
the team together, but
they'll likely be playing
alongside each other.
Tysean was signed as a cor-
nerback and Stephon will
get his first look at strong
safety. There's also a possi-
bility that he could see time
at linebacker or on the
offensive side of the ball.


It has nothing to do with
a lack of brotherly love, but
Stephon admitted to prefer-
ring to play offense.
"I like touching the ball,"
Stephon said. "I'll play line-
backer and I'll play on
defense where ever they
want me to play, but I love
touching the ball."
Whichever side of the
ball they end up on, the


Thrash boys will be show-
ing the stuff that has made
them two of the top sprint-
ers in the area.
"We bring a lot of
speed," Tysean said. "Their
coach said they had a lot of
good athletes, but they
didn't have a lot of speed.
"He said that's one thing
we'll be helping them out
with is our speed."

Laurel


Hill's


season


comes- to


an end

From staff reports

Despite falling short of
last year's performance,
Laurel Hill coach Kent
Zessin considered the
2006-07 season a success.
The Hoboes lost three
starters, a total of five sen-
iors and the area's player
of the year, Brad Reese,
from a team that finished
26-2 and went all the way
to the state semifinals
before their season ended.
Laurel Hill was
stopped in its bid to go
back to the state tourna-
ment on Tuesday with a
72-63 loss to Tallahassee
John Paul II in the Class A
regional semifinals.
"It was still an out-
standing season," Zessin
said. "This was supposed
to be a rebuilding season
and we still went to the
Sweet 16.
"I'm so. proud of our
kids. They didn't give up
all year. They played
tremendous basketball
and went out playing
their hardest. They have
nothing to be ashamed
about."
The Hoboes got off to a
slow start against John
Paul and despite several
runs during the game,
they simply ran out of
time at the end.
John Paul led 17-14
after one period and
stretched the lead during"
the second quarter.
Laurel Hill cut the lead
to two points before John
Paul went on a run in the
final 40 seconds of the half
to take a 33-24 lead.
"Turnovers hurt us
really bad early," Zessin
said. "We settled down in
the second half and were
able to make several runs,
but they were always able
to answer back.
"We were within five
points with less than two
minutes to go but we had
to go into fouling mode
and they made their free
throws.
"John Paul is a tough
team. They aren't 27-2 for
nothing."
Timaria McKay and
Jeffrey Reese, the Hoboes'
lone returning starters
from a year ago, led
Laurel Hill in its final
game. McKay scored 19
and Reese added 19.
Isaiah Raite had 10.
Laurel Hill finished
22-7.
