Blaze destroys mobile home in Crestview


Leslie Fike
Florida Freedom Newspapers
An evening fire consumed a
local family's home and posses-
sions Monday along Opportunity
Drive near Bob Sikes Airport.
The house's residents, Alan and
IKristal Bradley, and their daughter


Jade weren't home when the fire
occurred, said North Okaloosa Fire
District Chief Ed Cutler.
According to friend Jean
Hummel, the couple was dining at
a local restaurant, unaware that a
fire was burning their single-wide
mobile home to the ground.
Cutler said that the blaze had


probably consumed 50 percent of
the home's interior and the family's
belongings by the time the driver of
a passing car reported the fire.
"It was already smoking flames
and breaking through the skin of
the trailer," before firefighters
arrived on scene, said Cutler,
adding that the cause of the fire is


still under investigation by the state
fire marshal's office.
The family is currently staying
with in-laws while they search for a
new place to live and are receiving
assistance from the American Red
Cross and the Waterfront Mission,
said Hummel.
Co-workers and friends are col-


lecting clothes, toiletries and items
of immediate need, and a bank
account is to be set up in the next
few days to enable the community
to help as well.
The North Okaloosa Fire
District, the Crestview Fire
Department, and the Dorcas Fire
Department responded to the call.

Under deep blue skies accompa-
nied by a bone-chilling wind,
retired Air Force Col. and Medal of
Honor winner Bud Day officially
kicked-off the 2007 Crestview Little
League on Saturday by throwing
out the ceremonial first pitch.
An enthusiastic crowd of about
400 braved the chilly morning to
witness the event. However, by


early afternoon it had warmed con-
siderably as the first round of play
got under way.
As the afternoon grew warmer,
heavy coats and scarves were shed
in favor of sitting in the bright sun-
light and soaking in the rays while
pings of baseballs striking alu-
minum bats filled the air.
"This is what it is about," smiled
Charles Neal, vice-president of
baseball operations, "Kids having
fun and enjoying themselves."


The Hurlburt Air Force Base Honor Guard posted the colors at the

Sentencing ,for Jordan D.
Humphrey is scheduled for April

County Courthouse in Crestview.
State sentencing guidelines call in
this case for a minimum 20 years of
incarceration and a maximum of 30,
the State Attorney's Office said.
Prosecutor Bobby Elmore said he
has not decided the exact sentence
he will seek in the case.
"It's a tragic case for everyone
concerned. You've got a young man
with no prior history,. who comes
from what seems like a real fine
family. but \ou'\ e also got the trag-
ic deaths ot hvo ictum." he said.

DUI, continued from 1A


K. Robertson, 59, died July
16, 2005, at the intersection of
State Road 85 and Auburn
Road when the Chevrolet
Tahoe they were driving
pulled in front of
Humphrey's pickup truck.
The Robertsons were
attempting to turn ahead "of
Humphrey's oncoming vehi-
cle.
"Mr. Robertson just made
a mistake and Mr.
Humphrey made a very trag-
ic mistake by driving while


impaired," Elmore said.
Jurors deliberated for
about four hours Saturday
before returning with guilty
verdicts on two counts of
DUI manslaughter, Elmore,
said.
Roy Kinsey, Humphrey's
attorney, said'all five female
jurors who heard the case
were in tears as' they
returned with their verdict.
"They obviously agonized
over the decision," he said.
Thee trial had gone


through last week and into
the. weekend.
Elmore said he attempted
to establish that Humphrey's
drunkenness a blood alco-
hol measurement of .17,
above Florida's legal limit of
.08 the speed at which he
was traveling and other ele-
ments of negligence had
helped cause the deadly acci-
dent.
Kinsey,,for his part, tried
to convince the jury that
Humphrey could not have


avoided the wreck even if he
had not been impaired.
If the jury had accepted
this argument, Humphrey
could not have been found
guilty of manslaughter,
Kinsey said.
Now the defense team can
only hope Circuit Judge
William Stone will show
leniency, Kinsey sa id.
"Hopefully, the judge and
the state will find a way to let
this young man salvage the
rest of his life," he said.


BIG DADDY, continued from 1A


Garlits designed numerous
safety and performance fea-
tures that are standard equip-
ment on race cars today.
According to his Web site,
Garlits was the first driver to
win three National Hot Rod
Association national titles
and three world champi-
onships, the last coming at
the age of 54. He won a total
of 144 national events.
On October 20, 1987, his
home-built Top Fuel dragster,
Swamp Rat XXX, the sport's
only successful streamlined


car, was enshrined in the
Smithsonian Institute in
Washington, D.C., which also
houses The Spirit of St. Louis
and NASA's first manned
space capsule.
During his visit to the
Spanish Trail Cruisers Cruise
In, Garlits will be showing off
one of his legendary vehicles,
the Swamp Rat VIII.
"He's really just a very
down to earth guy," Tate said
of Garlits, who will award a
special prize to one of the
entries in the car show. "He's


more than happy to talk to
everyone."
Garlits will have merchan-
dise available for sale the day
of the show, and will pose for
photos with his fans.
In addition to appearances
by Garlits and local perform-
ers, the cruise in will feature
a swap meet, yard sale, a
poker run, and all sorts of
food and vendors. The
Rotary Club of Crestview
will continue its steak cook-
out tradition as well, with
proceeds going to support


the club's many community
service projects.
"We decided to move the
date up to April because in
the past, it was just too hot
when we had it in August,"
said Francis Guatney, a mem-
ber of the Spanish Trail
Crutisers.
Participants in the car
show will be eligible for
numerous awards, as well as
goody bags and door prizes.
For more information about
the event, contact Danny Tate
at 682-6632.

4A OPINION & EDITORIAL


Politics comes

down to choices
The 2007 municipal elections have come and
gone, and the people at least 13 percent of them -
have spoken.
Crestview will soon have a new mayor and a new
city councilman, and Laurel Hill will welcome four
new members to its city council. Will all of these
new faces result in changes in local government, or
will it be business as usual in North Okaloosa
County's two incorporated cities?
After winning an election, there's a temptation on
the part of some candidates to want to spend their
political capital. This isn't a partisan phenomenon -
President Bush told the press that he was going to
do just that after winning re-election in 2004, and
many politicians on the other side of the aisle have
done the same thing.
Some of our local politicians may be itching to
spend their own political capital now that the voters
have given them the nod. After all, who doesn't like
keeping campaign promises by spending someone
else's money?
It's much more enjoyable to build a new park or
pave a new road than it is to take a cold, hard look
at the budget and say, "We can't afford that."
Some might say that.outgoing Crestview GCity
Council President Ellis Conner lost his bid for re-
election because he did just that.
Whether you agree with his decisions or not. it's
hard to argue that Conner didn't have the courage of
his convictions when it came to spending the taxpay-
ers' money. While he voted against some popular
programs, he made a sincere effort to lower the mill-
age rate in Crestview, which is currently the highest
in Okaloosa County.
Every day, our representatives in government
make choices. Some choices to fund new positions
on the police and tire departments, to build new
wastewater treatment plants may be absolutely
necessary for our growing communities. Others may
be equally desirable, but less necessary.
Here's hoping that our newly reconstituted coun-
cils in both Crestview and Laurel Hill are brave
enough to distinguish the difference.


Jones & Lunsford's contributions appreciated


To the Editor:
On behalf of Covenant
Hospice, our staff, our
patients and their fami-
lies, I would like to
thank two very special
people who were the
backbone of one of our
most successful fund-
raising events in years.
Our recent Boston Butt


sale raised $10,000 for
unfunded services to
help local patients and
their loved ones.
We could not have
had this success without
Jeff Jones and Ronnie
Lunsford, who cooked
more than 7,000 pounds
of meat over the course
of four days and


always had a smile.
They aren't interested in
public fanfare or looking
for recognition, but
rather they go about
helping the community,
not just Covenant
Hospice, quietly and
faithfully.
I am inspired by their
sense of commitment to


our community and
grateful to have had
their help. Truly, these
are men who have made
and will continue to
make a real difference in
the lives of others.

Crestview unfriendly to motorcyclists


To the Editor:
I am a resident of
Crestview who moved here
last May. Last night was one
of numerous times while
riding my motorcycle, I've
had an impatient motorist
behind me in the left-hand
lane come up so close
behind me that there was
there was no stopping room


for them if I had to brake
quickly.
This particular motorist
felt the need to flash his
lights numerous times and
rev his engine in disgust
that I was not clearing the
way for him. I was doing 48
in a 45 mph zone. I was
keeping up with traffic and
there was nowhere for me


to go to get out of his way.
Many people would
argue that I don't belong in
the left-hand lane. But
many motorcyclists will
ride in the left lane for
safety reasons because
there is a lower risk of a
motorist flying out of a
driveway or business
drive.


Is this town one that
wants to be known as so
unfriendly that people don't
want to ride through it? I'm
a resident here, and I'm
embarrassed by the rude-
ness that is inflicted upon
motorcyclists.

Handicapped parking enforcement thanks


To the Editor:
I want to express my
appreciation to the police
officer who I observed dur-
ing the following incident.
On March 12 at around 2
p.m., I saw a Crestview
police officer in the
Crestview Wal-Mart ticket-
ing a person who was evi-
dently illegally parked in a
handicapped parking space.
This is the first time I have
ever witnessed that.
I am especially aware of


people violating the rules of
handicapped parking slots.
My was father was handi-
capped with emphysema
and bronchial asthma for
several years preceding his
death. He could not walk
more than 15 or 20 feet
without difficulty. When I
applied for a handicapped
parking permit, I was told
that the person to whom the
permit was being issued
had to be in the car when
parking in a handicapped


space. I'm sure other people
are told the same thing.
When transporting my
father, many times I had to
park far away from a build-
ing entrance because all of
the handicapped slots were
taken some illegally.
When my husband was
diagnosed with lung cancer
and could no longer get
around without great diffi-
culty, I again applied for a
handicapped parking per-
mit.


Again, I encountered
people violating handi-
capped parking laws.
I have talked with many
people who, like me, have
observed many violations of
handicapped parking privi-
leges, and we all hate it.
Again, I commend the offi-
cer who took the time to
ticket the offender.

Credit cards being issued to undocumented immigrants


Recent-
Miller ly, I
Report shared
R eport concerns
Jeff with
many
Miller about
reports
surround-
ing a pilot program implemented by
Bank of America through which
undocumented workers can apply for
a credit card. That's right. A person
with no Social Security number and
zero credit history can now receive a
credit card. It takes very little imagi-
nation to figure what population seg-
ment stands to gain the most from
this ill-conceived plan.
The news about this program first
came to light in Los Angeles, where
the pilot program is taking place.
Fortunately, newspapers caught wind
of this and this program is now
receiving the necessary national atten-
tion. Bank of America is one of the
largest banks in our nation, and in


fact started out as Bank of Italy. The
immigrants that the bank was estab-
lished to serve came to our country
the way they were supposed to--
legally. Now, this same bank is letting
a profit-making opportunity steer its
course with little regard to the laws of
our nation. Illegal immigrants
already enjoy far too easy access to
bank accounts, and now they are
given an incentive to apply for credit
cards through this program. Bank of
America claims the program is legal,
but it is now under review by the
Department of Homeland Security.
However, that claim does not come
close to making the program right.
I support legal immigration;
indeed, we are a nation of immi-
grants. However, those who choose
to come here illegally show from the
outset a blatant disregard for the laws
of our nation. To have those within
our own borders encourage further
activity in our economy serves to fur-
ther compromise our national securi-
ty. If a company makes it that easy


for a lawbreaker to obtain a credit
card, what monitoring will be in place
to ensure that credit cards aren't fur-
ther used for illegal activities? None.
Bank of America isn't even concerned
with the person obtaining the credit
card, let alone how the card is used.
Bank of America's idea of sufficient
identification is a card identifying a
person as citizen of another nation--
not even a passport or visa is
required. There is zero background
research to see whether that person is
in this country legally.
Sadly, Bank of America is not the
first bank to offer such a service. It is
simply the first bank that got caught
in the national spotlight.
Our nation already suffers from a
crisis in illegal immigration. People
see the economic opportunity and
proceed to disregard the other laws of
our land. Clearly, stronger border
security is an absolute must, and it
needs to be coupled with strong
enforcement of current immigration
laws. Encouraging those-who are


here illegally to stay and giving them
a chance to prosper while others work
hard, pay taxes, and respect our laws
is immoral and unethical. In fact, I
have cancelled my own account with'
Bank of America.
Our immigration laws have gone
far too long with little to no enforce-
ment. Progress has been made in
recent years with increases in border
security and empowering local law
enforcement to aid in the mission of
cracking down on illegal immigration.
Much work remains to be done,.how-
ever, and I look forward to tackling
this important issue. Actions at home
such as those by Bank of America
should not be tolerated by the
American people, and rest assured
that I will continue to work in
Congress to see that other such bad
plans do not happen in the future.

United States Representative Jeff
Miller is a member of the House
Armed Services Committee and the
Committee on Veterans' Affairs.

nes often pay very different tax
s, yet receive the same level of
ices. Elderly couples seeking to
vnsize are likely to face dramati-
cally increased taxes in
their new smaller home.
These stark inequities are
creating an atmosphere of
reform.
Good.
As citizens we generally
understand the need to
24. pay taxes, but we also
demand that they be fair
n and our current system of
ltant taxing properties is not
fair. In response to public
n concerns, state lawmakers
and our governor have
listed vowed to make changes.
urday They are promising some
loida feel-good fixes, like dou-
d at bling the homestead
News exemption, and are gain-
lofda ing popular support in the
process. But a few nips
and tucks around the
edges may not be what the
public is crying for, nor
will it repair a system that
is out of balance.
Let me explain.
-..: Over a decade ago, vot-
ers agreed to cap property
taxes via the Save Our
1.00 Homes initiative, which
.2.00
1.20 limits the amount by


which property taxes may increase for
homeowners who remain in their
homes. This well-intended cap shifted
property taxes to new homebuyers,
renters, owners of second homes and
businesses. As a result of this unfair
shift, two-thirds of property taxes are
now paid by those who do not own
homes. Not only is this unfair, it
makes no sense.
What also makes no sense and is
often lost in this debate is the fact that
the state is, once again, in the process
of telling local governments how to
raise local taxes in order to provide
local services.
But should state lawmakers in
Tallahassee alone be proposing sub-
stantive changes to a taxing system
that is supposed to fund local city and
county governments?
As the executive director of Florida
League of Cities, I am deeply con-
cerned that local city governments
and the people we serve will be stuck
with a one-size-fits-all solution devel-
oped by state lawmakers who are
unaware of the diverse challenges fac-
ing local communities. One-size gov-
ernment solutions rarely fit anyone.
We support local control over local
taxes, and we prefer real taxing
options that fit our cities.
Florida's cities and their local citi-
zens should be given the authority to
design tax systems that suit their indi-
vidual, changing needs. Why stop at

doubling the homestead exemption?
Some cities may want it tripled or
quadrupled, while others may not.
Many cities may prefer having their
services paid exclusively through
property taxes because residents can
take a deduction on their federal
income taxes. Some cities may choose
the local-option sales tax because visi-
tors pick up much of the tab.
While I would personally prefer an
increase in my sales tax in exchange
for a lower property tax rate, I don't
have that option nor does my local
city government.
And that is the point.
City governments and local voters
should decide how local cities fund
local services, not state lawmakers in
Tallahassee with their "one size"
approach.
I believe that city governments
work best because they are closest to
the people they serve. City leaders
and local voters are best able to
decide how to provide necessary
funding for local services. As such,
we would like more than just a patch-
up for our broken property tax sys-
tem. We prefer giving local city gov-
ernments and local citizens a stronger
voice and a full array of choices.

Florida League of Cities, the municipal
association that represents cities, towns
and villages in the state.

Tall Pines,

Rocky Baou

merger nixed
John Parrott
Crestview News Bulletin
An effort to give Rocky Bayou
Christian Academy of Niceville
more than a mere foothold in
Crestview has ended, at least for
now.
Tall Pines Christian Academy
recently rejected an initiative to
combine the two schools.
Tall Pines board member and
local attorney Mark Welton, who
also represents Harvest Vine-
yard Ministries, tried to broker
the deal, which he said would
have benefited both institutions.
"We initiated contact with
Rocky Bayou Christian Acad-
emy more than a year ago, after
several lengthy board discus-
sions," said Welton, who is also
personal counsel for Rocky
Bayou Christian Academy
Superintendent Donald Larson.
"We based our conclusion on
what we saw as a mutual benefit.
...," Welton said. "What began as
a conversation based upon our
close affiliation with Harvest
Vineyards Ministry here in
Crestview expanded at my
request to explore discussion of a
merger with RBCA."
Wenten added, "Contrary to
what has been written, the pro-
posal was not a hostile take-over
bid, but rather a hand-in-hand
relationship based on mutual
benefit and cooperation."
Larson concurred: "We felt
that we could offer Tall Pines
additional operational and
administrative guidance, plus
financial stability. Our position
was never to gobble them up,
but rather help them through
some current difficulties."
He said RBCA has plans to
increase its role in Crestview.
"One of our near term goals is
to have a facility up and running
in Crestview within the next two
to three years," Larson said. "We
see the need based on the rapid
growth of Cretie\\w, -and that is
part of our on-going, business
strategy. In fact, our attorney
(Welton) is looking at some
donatable land right now."
According to both Larson
and Welton, if RBCA comes to
Crestview, it will have little or no
direct impact on Tall Pines -
and neither school sees the other
as a threat. In fact, the men said
the schools share an attitude of
cooperation.
Welton said the board reject-
ed the deal after careful prayer
and consideration.
"They felt this was not in the
best interest of Tall Pines
Academy, and that is not to say
we found fault in anything
RBCA offered. That was never
the case," Welton said. "We
have a great deal of admiration
and respect for Don Larson and
his school. Our board simply
said they did not feel it was the
way God was directing them,
and that is where we get our
direction."

What we can learn from useless laws


Sgt. Rick Hord
Okaloosa County Sheriff's
Office

"How can I teach my
children to respect the law,"
asked a parent, "when there
are silly, useless, archaic
laws still on the books?"
That question is a golden
opportunity. A law that
seems outrageous now
made perfect sense to quite
a few people at one time.
Learn why it was important
enough to enough people to
become. law, and learn
about our remarkable sys-
tem of government.
Today, our laws are the
result of debate, compro-
mise, and consensus, but
for most of human history,
the law only had to make
sense to one person.
Until recent times, the
law was whatever the ruler
said it was, whether that
ruler was called "king,"
emperor," "chief," or any
other title. That person
became known as "The
Sovereign," meaning
"authority to rule," which
included the authority to


make the law, apprehend
those who violate the law,
ascertain the offender's
guilt, and determine the
punishment.
The king, it was rea-
soned, would not be king
unless it was God's will.
God, therefore, would pro-
tect anyone wrongly
accused of wrongdoing, so
guilt could quickly be
determined through "Trail
by Combat," or "Trial by
Ordeal."
Trial by Combat would
ordinarily be reserved for
members of the nobility.
The accused and his accus-
er would physically battle
each other on foot or horse-
back.
Common folk were sub-
ject to Trial by Ordeal, such
as plunging their arms into
a vat of boiling water or oil.
Not surprisingly, many
people accused of a crime
would avoid trial by plead-
ing guilty and accepting
whatever punishment the
Sovereign might decree.
A Babylonian' ruler
named Hammurabi did
something so revolutionary


and forward-thinking that
his portrait is on display in
the U.S. Congress and other
important buildings today,
almost 4,000 years after his
death. Hammurabi put his
laws in writing. He estab-
lished a very specific struc-
ture for the 282 laws, organ-
ized them into a code, and
specified punishments for
each offense. Even though
few Babylonians could
read, he posted the code in
public. Like most early
laws, punishments were
severe: Hammurabi's Code
required the surgeon's
hand be cut off if the patient
died, and specified death
for any accuser who cannot
prove his allegations
Another great Sovereign
remembered for writing his
laws is Justinian, who ruled
in Constantinople (modern
day Turkey) some 2,300
years after the time of
Hammurabi. His detailed


organization of centuries of
Roman Law is still the
foundation of our civil law.
The power to make laws,
apprehend, try and punish
offenders rested entirely
with the Sovereign. Our
Founding Fathers were
thoroughly unhappy with
some of the laws, punish-
ments, and procedures of
King George, the Sovereign.
That's why a new idea
being discussed at that time
by philosophers such as
John Locke held great fasci-
nation: "popular sovereign-
ty," the idea that govern-
ment should be the servant
of the people, not their mas-
ter.
Some 230 years later, that
system is still a work in
progress. Yes, our
Sovereign still sometimes
gives us silly laws and
strange outcomes... but it
sure beats anybody else's
Sovereign.


Emerald Coast Crime
Stoppers will pay a cash reward
to an anonymous caller who
helps investigators with the
Okaloosa County Sheriff's
Office identify suspect (s) who
burglarized the American
Legion located at 311 Main
Street in Destin and Elk's Lodge
located at 1335 Miracle Strip
Parkway in Fort Walton Beach.
The American Legion and
Elk's Lodge were broken into


sometime between Wednesday,
February 28 and Thursday,
March 1. Both establishments
suffered severe property dam-
age during the break-ins. The
burglars took thousands of dol-
lars in cash and property.
Anybody with information
about this incident should con-
tact Investigator Stefan Vaughn
at 850-609-2094 or call Emerald
Coast Crime Stoppers at 863-
8477.


Possible scam alert


The Okaloosa County
Sheriff's Office wants to alert the
public to a possible scam circu-
lating in the area. It targets peo-
ple who are advertising items for
sale. Sellers have reported to the
Sheriff's Office that a prospective
buyer, usually from Canada or
another country, sends a check
for a much larger amount than
the actual sales price, then tells
them to just cash it anyway. The


buyer says he or she will send
someone to pick up the remain-
der of the money and the item
for sale. The sellers are then later:
told to just wire the money back
to the buyer.
Investigators checking into'
this possible scam are advising
the public to verify the authentic-
ity of any checks they receive
with their banks or financial
institutions.

Baker

vote will

be mail-in

ballot
Leslie Fike
Florida Freedom Writer
In a day or two, registered
voters in the Baker Fire
District should receive a mail-
in ballot for an upcoming ref-
erendum. The election is in
regard to a request by the
Board of Commissioners of
the Baker Fire District for an
increase in its current non-ad
valorem fire tax.
"This election is for those
who live in the fire district of
precinct one," said Pat
Hollarn, Supervisor of
Elections of Okaloosa
County.
On the ballot, voters will
simply check whether they're
for or against an approxi-
mately 30 percent fire assess-
ment increase, which would
go toward improving the
community's overall fire pro-
tection, said Ben Carr, chair-
man of the Baker Fire District.
Baker's current fire assess-
ment rate is $56 per residen-
tial structure and $90 per
commercial structure, which
amounts to an estimated 16
percent increase since 1980,
said Carr.
However, the regulatory
requirements from both state
and federal laws have dra-
matically changed the
required minimum training
and equipment to be a volun-
teer firefighter, he added.
The fire department needs
51 percent of its voters to
approve a new flat rate fire
assessment of $85 per resi-
dence and $125 per commer-
cial structure in order for the
referendum to pass.
The additional funds will
be allocated .toward the con-
struction of a new fire station
on Vinson Ray Road, in the
northern part of the district, a
station west of Baker on the
other side of the Blackwater
River on State Road 4, addi-
tional equipment and the hir-
ing of Baker's first paid fire-
fighters.
These improvements are to
meet the needs of Baker's
rapid growth, said Carr.
There are currently an esti-
mated 1,850 registered voters
in the Baker Fire District, said
Hollarn.
However, unlike regular
elections, residents partici-
pate in a mail-in election from
the comfort of their homes.
There are no polls to vote at.
All ballots will be counted on
Election Day, April 10, with
results known that night.
Last minute voters are
instructed to drop their bal-
lots off at the Supervisor of
Elections office,, located on
the first floor of the Okaloosa
County Courthouse, by no
later than 7 p.m. April 10.
"A mail-in ballot election
usually has a more significant
turnout, and the Baker Fire
District wanted to make sure
everyone had the chance to
vote," said Hollarn.
The law requires that all
ballots be mailed out to vot-
ers no earlier than the 20th
day before the election and
no later the 10th day. There is
no absentee voting.
"If anyone goes five or six
days without receiving their
ballot and thinks they're a
registered voter, they need to
call our office at once," said
Hollarn.
Instructions for voting are
included with the ballot in
case of any questions.
"I think Baker voters are

Schools

offer aid to

victims

Leslie Fike
Florida Freedom Newspapers

North Okaloosa schools are
stepping up and showing their
'support for the tornado stricken
( faculty and student body of
SEnterpri7e High School in
oKAlabama.
Several weeks ago, students
,.from Baker School, Crestview
!High School and Richbourg
IMiddle School took the initiative
Ito raise funds for what they con-
ssider a neighboring school by
collecting spare change from
their own classmates and facul-

The Crestview High School
!student council rallied up to the
Friday before St. Patrick's Day to
rai;e their portion of the dona-
(tion."They're only an hour north
rof us and we were going
through the same drills," said
' Kerry Disharoon, advisor to the
I CHS student council. "It could
have easily been us."
The Baker School Parent
Teacher Organization con-
tributed $1,000 to the more than
$2,000 raised by its students by
collecting spare change in the
classrooms and during lunch.


LESLIE FIKE / FLORIDA FREEDOM NEWSPAPERS
Baker students Taylor Harlson and Susan Mayberry (left)
record shoutouts to the students and faculty of Enterprise
High School during their morning television production class.


"We started just with collect-
ing from the middle school and
elementary classes," said Baker
Assistant Principal Jennifer
Stewart.
But soon, the entire school
was involved.
"It just amazed me how the
kids were so responsive and
wanted to help out. I think they
have a lot of empathy for the
kids at Enterprise High School,"
said Stewart.
On March 14, Baker students
pinned on badges that read, "We
honor Enterprise High School,"
all day.
"I'm proud to see the kids
have-compassion for other kids
in a different state and help
those they can," said Assistant
Superintendent of North


Okaloosa Schools Rodney
Nobles.
Fund-raising efforts ended
last Friday, with more than
$4,200 collected for the Alabama
school that was ripped apart on
March 1 by tornadoes.
A check in the amount raised
will be sent to Enterprise with a
video made by the crew of Baker
School's student television sta-
tion WGTV that includes
shoutouts of best wishes from
Baker Gators.
"What we're going to try to
do is put together a two-minute
video to let the students know
we're thinking about them,"
said Rich Colbum, who teaches
the school's television produc-
tion class. "To let them know
they're not alone."

Sitting in the middle of
Crestview High School's
gymnasium, Calvary
Christian Academy student
Joshua Bankston winded the
propeller on his makeshift
plane, raised it into the air
and let it fly.
Seconds passed as the
feather light aircraft, consist-
ing of rubber bands and plas-
tic wings, slowly soared over
the head of Bankston and oth-
ers silently watching and
guessing how long the plane
would stay airborne.
A few bumps into several
ceiling lights and other fix-
tures simply forced the craft
to change its course a few
times until it finally decided
to land on the bleachers next
to some of Bankston's oppo-
nents.
"One minute, 52 seconds,"
the time keeper called out.
The time landed Bankston
in third place in a group of 11
competitors for the aerospace
portion of the 11th annual
Industry Design Engineering
and Students (IDEAS) compe-
tition held Saturday at
Crestview High School. The
event is sponsored by the
Jacob TEAS team at Eglin Air
Force Base.
He wasn't the only
Calvary student to place in
the competition, which also
included teams of high school
students from CHS, Baker
School, Faith Presbyterian,
Rocky Bayou and
Choctawhatchee.
But in the end, Baker took
home the trophy with the
highest amount of accumulat-
ed points in all three of the
engineering competition's
categories.
Chance Lawhorn won first
place for creating a plane that
flew for 139 seconds in the
aerospace category,. while
three of Law horn's school-
mates, David Largston,
Nikita Wilson and Kayla
Adams, grabbed the top three
-potk in the civil engineering
portion of the contest.
The idea was to build a
bridge out of Popsicle sticks


The team from Baker School came in first place at the annual
IDEAS competition sponsored by Jacobs Sverdrup. Pictured in
the front row from left to right are Nikita Wilson, Kayla Adams,
Olivia Morgan, Jessica Allen and Amanda Hill. In the back row,
from left to right, are Stacy Tew, Ashley Bermes, Lindsey
Marelli, Gwynn Blanchard (Baker physics teacher), Chance
Lawhorn, David Langston and Kahlan Maki.


and the bridge that holds the
most weight wins. Largston's
bridge withstood 814 pounds,
just one pound less than last
year's record winner, said
Norm Babbitt, director of the
IDEAS competition.
"Most of these bridges
could hold a whole IDEAS
team," said Babbitt.
It's all a matter of science
and math and the distribution
of weight per square inch.
Wilson's bridge followed
Largston by holding 699
pounds, while Adams' bridge
took third by withstanding
626 pounds before collapsing.
Amanda Hill and Olivia.
Morgan aided in their team's
victory by constructing cars
made out of mousetraps
that traveled 1,141 and 1,251
inches across the gym floor,
coming within mere inches of
hitting the opposite wall and
breaking last year's winning
record of 59 feet, two inches.
"Hit the wall! Hit the
wall!" Morgan's teammates
shouted as they watched the
model veer to the right, miss-
ing the concrete wall of the
gym.
Morgan and Hill stretched
cut pieces of a balloon over
their cars' wheels to create
traction, which probably
helped, said Babbitt.
"But over the years, we
haven't figured out if a fast
car or a slow car is better


because we've had both," he
added.
Forty-one feet is a long
way for a mousetrap to go, he
added. But Sam Haars from
Choctaw took third after his
model traveled 1,105 inches.
"That's a good performing
car," said Babbitt, comment-
ing on the fact that Haars'
model drove nice and
straight.
"You design for more than
just performance. Reliability
comes into it, too."
Unfortunately, not every-
one had the best of luck in
designing their contraption.
Some planes flew only 12 sec-
onds, a few bridges didn't
make it past the 100 pound
mark and a couple of cars
traveled only a few inches.
One car model moved about
20 feet forward,and then went
backwards, causing its inven-
tor to lose points.
"We hold this competition
for two reasons," said Babbitt.
"First, to foster engineering
among high school students,
and two, to give students an
idea of what engineering is all
about and what it takes to
solve a problem during the
process of building some-
thing."
But the Baker team may
have said it best. Each mem-
ber wore original matching
team T-shirts that read
"Einstein is my home boy."

The greening of Adara Golf Club


Randy Dickson
Florida Freedom Newspapers

It has been eight months
since the former Shoal River
Golf Club reopened under
the name of Adara, a word
derived from Hebrew mean-
ing "full of glory."
Gilbert Chan, the owner
of the course, quickly admits
there's always room for
improvement, but he's
happy with the way things
have gone so far.
"We have had a fairly suc-
cessful snowbird season," he
said. "Many of the snow-
birds that have played here
before were delightfully sur-
prised at the way we did the
course.
"They really enjoyed play-
ing the course more than
they used to because it is
more player friendly espe-
cially the women they
liked the course. The condi-
tion of the course was pretty
impressive for them."
Rather than rushing to get
the course open, Chan chose
to take extra time to make
sure it was in the best condi-
tion possible before the
unveiling in late July.
That decision has helped
avoid some of the major
problems they might have
encountered if they had
opened at an earlier date.
A mild winter hasn't hurt
the continual development
of the f.aiin '.~v., and greens
either.
\\e overseeded the tees,
the greens and the fairways
- everything but the rough


we seeded," Chan said.
"When the rains came some
of the seeds washed away so
the reseeding didn't help
much.
"Overall the appearance
was adequate as far as the
color and all that, but we
would hope for more rye
(grass) on it, but because of
the rain a lot of the seed was
washed away."
With the arrival of spring
the Bermuda grass should be
kicking in soon, Chan said.
One complaint Chan
hopes they will be able to
solve has to do with the
speed of the greens.
"We hear from the golfers
- because of the youngness
of the grass the greens
were very, very fast," he
said. "I think when the
spring time comes the grass
will be more mature and
even better."
Chan is still working on
finding room for a driving
range and upgrades to the
clubhouse.
Plans are in the works to
do away with the tennis
courts and the swimming
pool. But conversations are
taking place with the
Crestview YMCA for him to
supply some land for a pool
the Y would maintain and
operate.
"The main thing is to keep
the main thing, the main
thing," Chan said. "The ten-
nis court and the swimming
pool this is not our main
thing. It distracts us from

Local softball star hopes to play in Europe


Adam Ziglar
Crestview News Bulletin


Success is nothing new to
Nichole Young.
The fledging center fielder
for Chowan University's
softball team has accumulat-
ed her share of honors.
But the 21-year-old former
Crestview High School
standout athlete now has the
opportunity to raise the
stakes in her quest to achieve
greatness on and off the field.
Young, who graduated
from CHS in 2003, has the
opportunity to play on the
international level with the
International World Sports
Tour this summer.
Young was excited to dis-
cover that she has the oppor-
tunity to play with some of


Nichole Young

the world's best softball
players.
"I'm definitely excited,"
she said recently from the
North Carolina-based pri-
vate university. "At first I
was wondering if this was a


gimmick. It's going to be
girls from all over the U.S.
that will play overseas'."
Young is now trying to
figure out how to raise the
$4,000 required to make the
tour, which will take her
from Holland to Sweden,
Germany and other places in
a series of games against
players from around the
world.
"They're only taking 15
people," she said, referring
to the U.S. team. "It's defi-
nitely an honor to even get a
letter to be offered to play."
Young's softball career
flourished here. Under the
training of local coaches at
Richbourg Middle School,
Crestview High School and a
travel team, the Crestview
Diamonds, Young developed


her batting and fielding skills
and began college play at
Jefferson.Davis Community
College in Brewton, Ala.
After completing. two
years of school, she trans-
ferred to Chowan, a four-
year private school in
Murfreesboro, N.C.
Young hopes to return to
her roots when she com-
pletes her studies.
She will return this sum-
mer to help coach the travel-
ing Diamonds.
"I hope to get my feet in
the water and do the best I
can," she said.
In Young's first year at
Crestview, she broke the
record for the number of
stolen bases.
"She's a maverick on the
bases. She definitely livens


up the game," said Greg
Brock, her varsity softball
coach for four years at
Crestview. "She's got the
ability to do whatever she
wants in softball."
Dave Brogan has known
Young since she was 10 years
old.
As the coach of the
Crestview Diamonds, a local
traveling team, Brogan
watched Young become a
stellar athlete with an
unmatched ability to steal
bases.
"The thing about Nichole
is that she plays at a different
level than anyone around
here," Brogan said. "This will
be a good experience for her
to go on this trip. She's one in
a million as far as pure ath-
letic speed."


Stadium owners should pay their own way


My Take
by Rdndy Dickson

I've always dreamed of
owning a ballpark, and
maybe you have, too.
If the state legislature has
its way about it, we may
have the opportunity to in a
sense be part owners of a
piece of the new stadium
being built for the Florida
Marlins baseball team.
It seems our elected state
officials want to help the
Marlins to the tune of $60
million toward the price of
the $490 million dollar stadi-
um.
Dade County and the city
of Miami have committed to
pay $460 million, If they


want to pay those mega
bucks fine. But please
don't ask me to help out.
Of course that leads me to
ask why the Marlins need
another $60 million. It seems
basic math tells me they
should need half that.
Just think of all the rights
and privileges that go with
having your own park. We
can attend games for free,
and we should at least get a
cut rate on the concessions I
buy. After all, ownership
does have some rewards.
We are all taxpayers.
Some of us own homes, but
all of us pay sales tax almost
every day. Maybe we don't
live in Miami-Dade County,
but my tax money will help
pay for the park that will


keep the Florida Marlins in
Florida.
I just wonder how come a
person or corporation with
enough money to own a big
league sports team and pay
the salaries of professional
athletes needs my help in
paying for their stadiums.
The Daily News is in the
process of a press expansion,
and to the best of my
knowledge Freedom
Communications didn't float
a tax issue to help pay for it.
No, Freedom is a private
company and the owners
pay for the perks that will
hopefully make this a more
profitable business.
But forget comparing the
Florida Marlins to the Daily
News. Let's compare the


Marlins to a state university.
Both Florida and Florida
State have recently under-
gone major renovations and
expansions of their athletic
facilities, and to the best of
my understanding, not one
state dollar was used to pay
for the upgrades.
Whether it's Florida,
Florida State, Alabama or
Tennessee, when one of the
big boys wants to expand
and improve their facilities
they raise their own money.
State money stays where it
needs to with the stu-
dents. If a school wants to
keep up with Rival U they
go to the wealthy alumni to
pay for the latest expansion
That same idea even
works at a local level, as was


the case when local busi-
nessman Steve Riggs
showed his love and gen-
erosity for Fort Walton
Beach High School by pro-
viding a large sum of money
to build the stadium that
shares his name.
Maybe the Marlins don't
have wealthy alumni, but
don't take the money out
my pocket to build some
rich man's clubhouse.
If the state can afford to
give the Marlins $60 million,
then it can afford to give our
teachers in all parts of the
state raises. Or maybe it can
help a local school build a
new gym, football stadium

or perhaps a swimming

Crestview News Bulletin I 3B


Crestview native wrestles his way to
Adam Pruiett
Florida Freedom
Newspapers


Ann Span I Florida Freedom Newspapers
Crestview native Eric Flinchum recently won a national collegiate wrestling title. Flinchum
is a senior at the University of the Cumberlands in Kentucky.


Eric Flinchum nearly
accomplished his long-
term wrestling goal in a
short amount of time.
But after two years of
making the NAIA
national championship
finals, the former
Crestview standout was
still chasing his dream of
capturing a title and time
was running out when he
arrived in Sioux City,
Iowa, recently for his last
shot at ultimate glory.
This time, the
University of the
Cumberlands (Ky.) star
grabbed the bull by the
horns, almost literally -
Flinchum wrestles in the
heavyweight division
but routinely gives up 30
or more pounds. He
dominated Lance Huria
of St. Louis' Lindenwood
in a 9-1 major decision
victory that secured his
first national champi-
onship.
"That was my long-
term goal for my college
career. I finally sealed the
deal my senior year. It
felt pretty good,"
Flinchum said.
His national title was
the perfect ending to an
accomplished season for
Flinchum, who compiled
a 32-1 record on the year.
Success was nothing new
to him, though. He fol-
lowed a 24-1 sophomore
campaign by tallying a
28-1 mark his junior sea-
son.
Despite the impressive
records, his previous two


the top
years ended in frustra-
tion. Flinchum flirted
with a perfect season
only to lose each year in
the national finals. The
first time he fell 4-2 after
losing a scramble for a
takedown deep in the
match, while the second
time he lost 7-1 and
admitted that he under-
estimated an opponent
that he'd previously
beaten at nationals.
But after jumping
from the 197-pound class
where, including his
redshirt freshman year,
he'd been for four years
to heavyweight this
season, Flinchum left
nothing to chance. He
bulldozed his way to the
finals with victories of
11-1, 7-0 and 11-1.
Flinchum then steam-
rolled to an 8-0 lead after
one period in the finals
on a takedown and two
three-point turns. The
four-time All-American
maintained that advan-
tage until the third peri-
od, carefully avoiding
any critical mistakes that
would rob him of a
national title.
"I definitely didn't
want to underestimate
him, but at the same time
I didn't want to give him
too much credit and get
worked up about it,"
Flinchum said of Huria,
. who he defeated 14-1 in
the regional finals. "I just
wanted to treat it like
any other match."
Flinchum did just that,
which meant that his
long-term goal would be
accomplished that day in
a short amount of time.


MY TAKE, continued from 1B
pool.
I'm sure the folks at Baker
don't mind using the recre-
ation complex for Gator
baseball games, but I'm sure
it would be nice to have a
nice new stadium at the
school.
Besides, there are proba-
bly 10 times as many Braves
fans in this area as there are
Marlin fans.
And that leads me to my
final point.
I'm a Los Angeles
Dodgers fan, and I shouldn't
have to pay for someone
else's stadium.

ADARA, continued from 1B
doing the main thing (golf).
"Let the Y build the stuff
and manage the stuff so that
we can do the main thing.
Otherwise we only have so
much time."
Chan's goal is to partner
with businesses, not only in
Crestview but throughout
Okaloosa County, to make
Adara a favorite golf destina-
tion.
He wants business, civic
organizations and church
groups to come and have
some fun playing the course.
Chan isn't worried about
having the best prices in the
area, but would rather Adara
be known as a quality course
at a reasonable price.
"We don't want to rip peo-
ple off," he said. "We want to
present them with a quality
product they can enjoy."
