Baker fire referendum deadline nears


Leslie Fike
Florida Freedom Newspapers
BAKER The Board of
Commissioners of the Baker Fire
District is being vigilant with a ref-
erendum election that will decide
whether or not residents' fire
assessment fees will increase in
October.


According to Baker Fire
Commissioner Ben Carr, many resi-
dents are opposing the referendum
because they don't understand how
necessary the additional revenue is
for the Baker Fire District to main-
tain state standards and prepare for
growth.
"I think it is only fair that the
public be informed on how much


money we currently take in, and
then to be informed of what the
other districts are charging," said
Carr.
The Baker Fire District Board of
Commissioners is asking residents
to pass a referendum that will allow
the department to increase its rates
to $85 per residential unit and $125
per commercial.


Those residing in the Baker Fire
District paid a total of $76,008.05 in
fire assessment fees last year, said
Carr.
However, Baker has the second
lowest fire rates in North Okaloosa
County next to Holt, with current
rates set at $56 per residential struc-
ture and $90 per commercial struc-
ture.


Blackman residents pay $75 per
residential structure and $150 per
commercial structure, which is still
lower than North Okaloosa Fire
District's assessment rates.
If passed, the additional income
would fund the construction of two
new stations and the hiring of the

participated in a walk of honor.

Celebrating 103 years
Ruth Barrow , .
celebrated her
103rd birthday at .
Silvercrest Rehab N ,. ,
in Crestview on '
March 29. Many
family members
attended the cele-
bration and
enjoyed refresh-
ments with her. Barrow lived in the Oak Grove area
most of her life, where she drove a school bus for
many years and was very active in the Blackman
Church of Christ. Barrow's loving family includes
two sons, seven grandchildren, five great-grand-
children and three great-great-grandchildren.


Around and around, the
kids made their laps by rac-
ing one another, walking
hand-in-hand and perform-
ing cartwheels in between
quick stops at the water
fountain to refuel their
energy.
Jennifer Jones and many
other parents took the school
up on its invitation to come
out and walk with their chil-
dren during their time on the
playground for physical edu-
cation.
"I love being here and
being part of everything with
'my son," Jones said while
waiting on the playground
for her son, Colin.
"Hopefully we'll raise a lot of
money."
The day's event. also
added to the school's focus of
teaching its children the
importance of leading


healthy lives by eating right,
avoiding cigarettes and being
active, said Sears.
"What better way to learn
about fitness than to walk!"
she added.
Throughout the month of
March, the students
scrounged for that extra
change, emptied out piggy
banks and hit up parents and
grandparents for donations.
Southside grandparent
Garland Campbell brought
his donation to the relay,
where he met his grand-
daughter, first-grader
Malayna Stringer, for a few
laps around the playground.
"We definitely want to
keep this going in coming
years," said Sears, who
walked with her class until
lunchtime. "And we hope to
make it bigger and better
next year."


FIRE, continued from 1


department's first paid and
full-time firefighters.
At present, the depart-
ment consists of 25 volunteer
firefighters for weekday cov-
erage. But between 7 a.m.
and 4 p.m., most volunteers
are at their day jobs, said
Carr.
Some of the revenue
would also be allocated to
new equipment for person-
nel. It costs an estimated
$3,000 to equip one firefighter
with the required gear, and
due to normal wear and tear,
equipment must be replaced
every two to four years, said
Carr.
In the last eight years, to
continuously improve its ISO
rating and maintain state
requirements that constantly
change, the department has
acquired two newer fire
engines and new equipment.
It has constructed a modern
public safety building -on
19th Street to replace the
cramped station on Monroe
Street, originally built in
1980.
In 1988, the Baker Fire
District purchased its first fire
truck a 1963 GMC Fire
Engine.
"We were so proud," said
Carr, who joined the depart-
ment in 1985.
The department now con-
sists of three fire engines, one
rescue truck and two tankers.
"One of our greatest
expenses other than annual
vehicle payments is insur-
ance," said Carr. "We current-


ly pay approximately $20,000
annually for Workman's
Compensation, vehicle and
building insurance."
Add that cost to the esti-
mated $75,000 it would take
to equip every fire fighter
with his own gear every two
to four years and subtract it
from the district's annual
average income of $74,000.
It's quite evident that there's
just not enough money in the
coffers to do everything that's
needed, said Carr.
"If it wasn't for federal
grants and things, we would-
n't have what we have," he
added.
There are an estimated
1,850 registered voters in the
Baker Fire District who can
participate in the mail-in bal-
lot election, according to Pat
Hollarn, supervisor of elec-
tions of Okaloosa County.
To pass the new flat rate,
934.25 voters have to check
yes on the ballot, which can
be mailed to the Supervisor
of Elections office or hand
delivered to the office, locat-
ed on the first floor of the
Okaloosa County
Courthouse.
Last minute voters must
drop off their ballots no later
than 7 p.m. on Election Day,
April 10. All ballots will be
counted on Election Day,
with results known that
night.
Voters can contact the
Okaloosa County Supervisor
of Elections office at
689-5600.

But she was shocked and
pleased when her goal of
$2,000 quickly doubled.
"It's almost to $4,000!"
Sears said as she walked with

Canaan's land for 40 years.
While in the wilderness
they did not enjoy the
blessings that God had pre-
pared for them in the
Promised Land. They wan-
dered in a strange land.
Could it be that many of us
are suffering a spirit of rest-
lessness because we have
forsaken the promises of
God? Proverbs 13:15
records that the transgres-
sor's way is hard.
What is the answer to
restlessness? Paul writes in
Philippians 4:11 that he
"learned in whatsoever
state I am, therewith to be
content." When adversity
arose he trusted in the Lord
to fight his battles. As
Christians we need to be
content, ready to trust in
the Lord with all of our
heart and "lean not unto
our own understanding"
(Proverbs 23:5).
Sometimes change is
necessary. If you are not
being taught the truth in
your church, you should
seek a place to worship
where you will be fed from
the Word of God. However,
be mindful that there is no
perfect church or perfect
people. The Bible also


teaches that marriage is a
covenant and not a contract
that can be broken at the
first sign of trouble.
In both situations above,
you should first and fore-
most take your problems to
the Lord in prayer, and be
still. When other adversity
occurs in your life, seek the
Lord and his word. God is
still on his throne and
knows what we need to
make it through the tumul-
tuous world.
In John 16:33 Jesus said,
"In the world ye shall have
tribulation: but be of good
cheer; I have overcome the
world." The advice of the
world will often lead us
astray but God will always
have the solution for our
problems if we will seek his
face. There is contentment
when we rest in his
promises.

Robert "Eddie" Merritt Jr.


POLICE BEAT


Lt. Wayne Grandstaff
Crestview Police Department

Being raised in Crestview
and having been employed
with the Crestview Police
Department for the past 22
years, I have seen a lot of
growth in the Crestview
area. The one thing that
concerns me is the amount
of traffic accidents involv-
ing motorcycles.
Spring is here, and sum-
mer is just around the cor-
ner. That means the increase
of traffic traveling in and
through our city, not only
the local traffic, but tourists
on spring break and vaca-
tion traveling to the beach
at the south end of the
county. This means the pos-
sibility of more traffic acci-
dents.


With the weather warm-
ing up that means more
motorcycles on our roads.
In 2003 the Crestview Police
Department worked 448
traffic accidents and in 2006
the department worked
1,351 traffic accidents. The
traffic accidents have
almost tripled in four years
from an average of one traf-
fic accident a day to four
accidents a day.
A large percentage of
these accidents were rear-
end collisions. According to
the Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles traffic crash facts,
from 1995 to 2004 they were
7,367 motorcycle accidents
in which 6,367 motorcyclists
were injured and 388
motorcyclists were killed.

Crestview News Bulletin

CRESTVIEW It's hard to
believe that just ten weeks
ago, Robert "Eddie" Merritt
Jr., 46, was suddenly the
recipient of a new lease on
life. The soft-spoken man's
gentle spirit belies a serious
congenital medical condi-
tion, a defective aortic heart
valve that ultimately led to
the degradation of his heart
as well as both lungs.
"He's gone through a
tough time," said his aunt,
Lucille King. "The doctors
said he'd outgrow it, but he
didn't."
It took a minor automobile
accident in 1997 and the
resultant visit to the Baker
man's doctor for a sore back
to bring the seriousness of
his condition to his attention.
"The doctor said, 'we need
to do something about that
heart,'" Merritt said, "I said,


traffic fatalities in the state
of Florida were motorcycle
drivers. I am sure that when
the 2007 statistics come out
there will be an increase in
motorcycle accidents.
I encourage all drivers of
motor vehicles to watch out
for motorcycles, Make sure
you take a second look to
make sure the road is clear
before you change lanes,
turn, or pull out onto the
roadway.
Drive your vehicle at a
safe distance where your
able to stop before becom-
ing involved in an accident.
When turning left across
the road, be sure to look
before you turn. Make sure
you see what you're look-
ing at, using good judge-
ment of speed, distance,
and noticing head lights.
This awareness can prevent
accidents.
For our motorcyclists,
drive the speed limit, wear'
your helmets, drive defen-


'But I'm here about my back.
Just give me a pill for my
heart and fix my back.'"
Instead he received his
first open-heart surgery, the
replacement of his aortic
valve. However, his condi-
tion continued to deteriorate,
and on April 10, 2006, Merritt
was placed on an organ
donor waiting list at the
University of Alabama-
Birmingham.
"He's been on every-
body's prayer list from
Atlanta to California," said
King. Indeed, Merritt credits
his strong faith for carrying
him through his ordeal. "It
was God, that's a fact!" he
said. "If it wasn't for him, for
all those prayers and the sup-
port of my church family, I
wouldn't be here."
Jeanett Prater, secretary at
New Beginnings Church in
Crestview, of which Merritt
is a member, added, "But in
all those months and months


sively and always have
your headlights on.
Remember just because a
driver of a vehicle is look-
ing at you, doesn't mean
they see you.
Remember the old saying
"Drive it like you stole it?"
Let's try driving it like we
are making payments on it.
When approaching an
intersection, cover your
breaks anticipating that the
other vehicle is not going to
stop. Don't ride in a vehi-
cle's blind spot.
Take your helmet off the
sissy bar and put it on your
head. Helmets are
designed to protect your
head, not your motorcycle.
Let's all work together to
make our city a safe place
to ride motorcycles. Have a
great spring and summer.
Watch out for those who
drive motorcycles, and
motorcyclists watch out for
vehicles and always have a
plan to drive defensively.


life


he was waiting" for a donor,
"he wouldn't pray for one,
because he knew that some-
one would have to die to pro-
vide the organs."
In January a 20-year-old
anonymous donor, active in
his church's missionary
work, passed away. His heart
and lungs proved the match
that Merritt needed, and on
Jan. 17, doctors at UAB per-
formed the university hospi-
tal's 31st heart and lungs
transplant.
Especially as a recipient
himself, Merritt is today a
strong advocate of organ
donation. "It helps an awful
lot of people," he said. "At


the hospital I saw so many
people just waiting for trans-
plants. Some have been wait-
ing years. Some die while
waiting.
"He was a good Christian
fellow," Merritt said of the
man who provided his new
organs. "But it's a shame he
had to die for me to live, but
I figure it was the Lord's
will."
Prater confirmed the
strong role that his faith has
played in Merritt's ordeal.
"That [donor's] heart was
accustomed to loving God,"
she said, "so he made sure it
went in another body that
did the same."

SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2007 LOCAL


WGTV celebrates 2,000 episodes


Leslie Fike
Florida Freedom Newspapers

BAKER It started with
a single classroom and a
vision to bring the world of
media production to stu-
dents.
Today, video tapes dating
14 years back to the very
first airing of Baker School's
student television show,
WGTV, crowd the back
- shelves of a small produc-
tion room located adjacent to
a television studio and
across the hall from the
school's library.
"I feel really lucky to have
been a part of this," said
Rich Colburn, the school's
media instructor and head
producer of WGTV.
It was 1994 when Colburn
was hired to develop Baker's
first student television show,
which can be taken as an
elective. On Friday, he stood
proudly smiling behind a
room full of students watch-
* ing WGTV's 2,000th show,
which aired that morning in
every classroom.
The dream had come full
circle, but Colburn still
remembers the first 12 kids
who enrolled into his media
production program and


introduced Baker Gators to
WGTV the morning of Feb.
12, 1994.
Since then an estimated
500 students have passed
through the program during
their middle school and/or
high school years.
"I didn't picture it getting
so big so fast," said Colburn.
"But it grew very quickly."
This year, 80 students,
seventh to 12th grade, are
the backbone of WGTV,
including 14-year-old
Gabriela Reber.
"I like how it's different
from all the other electives
and I think is the best out of
all the Okaloosa County
schools," said Reber.
The eighth-grader joined
Colburn's program two
years ago to get a jump start
on her goal of becoming a
journalist.
"At my old school, we
didn't have anything like
this," said sophomore
Brittany Farris. "I thought it
was something different and
fun to do."
Now in her third year
with WGTV, Farris is inter-
ested in pursuing a career as
a news anchor.
For 14-year-old Michael
Dingess, WGTV just seemed


more appealing than anoth- '
er physical education class.
"It's a lot of fun to do,"
said Dingess, who's enjoyed
learning how to be a direc- -- i
tor.
"The students at Baker are
great," said Colburn. "It's
been a great environment to
work in this last 14 years."
WGTV's success comes
from its talented staff of stu-
dents and the construction
of the station's production
studio in 1997, which
opened up multiple avenues
for the program, said
Colburn.
"Once we had that studio,
I knew we'd have the oppor-
tunity to do some great
things," he added. "And
every year we try to take the
next step to make a more Baker School's media instru<
polished television show." the production room of the s

Congregants celebrate Covenant Day at Harvest Life Church.


Shown from left to right are visiting Pastor Jack and Shellie Hollis, Bill and Angie
Stroheker, Pastor Dale and Brenda Walters, as Bill Stroheker is welcomed into
the ministry.



Covenant Sunday and


Ordination Day at Harvest


Life Church


Special to the News
Bulletin

March 4 was Covenant
Sunday at Harvest Life
Church. A covenant is a
solemn agreement between
two parties. A covenant is
considered to be the highest
commitment one can under-
take and should not be
entered into lightly.
Why a covenant? Harvest
Life challenges its members
to rise up to a higher stan-
dard and strive to be the
Christians that God intend-
ed. That is why new mem-
bers don't just join the
church, but enter into
covenant with it.
In addition to Covenant


Sunday, Harvest Life
ordained a long time faithful
member, Bill Stroheker, into
the ministry. Bill is a carpen-
ter by trade, but his dedica-
tion to building the kingdom
of God has been a key focus
of his life. For this reason,
Harvest Life Church wanted
to recognize his talents and
services to God.
Stroheker has been active
in prison ministry for many
years and has been reaching
the men there with the good
news of Jesus Christ. Many
of these men have accepted
Christ thanks to the out-
pouring of the Holy Spirit.
Stroheker is also involved
in Crossroads, a motorcycle
ministry that takes the


gospel to the open road. He
participated in several mis-
sionary trips to Peru, minis-
tering and .touching many
lives in that country. He has
also taught Sunday School
and led various Life Groups
at Harvest Life throughout
the years.
Stroheker has been an
-essential contributor to the
work performed on the
Harvest Life youth house.
Using his carpentry skills, he
has put in countless hours
renovating and finishing
both the interior and exteri-
or of the building.
He and his wife, Angie,
reside in Baker and have two
children, Brandee and
Daniel.

The inspiration for Miami
lawyer-turned-author James
Grippando's first novel was
a total case of mistaken
identity. He was nearly
arrested as a peeping tom!
This best-selling author of
the "Jack Swyteck" series,
including number six
"When Darkness Falls",
writes compulsively read-
able thrillers that could be
drawn from today's head-
lines, only better.. Creating
scenarios involving a range
of modern evils including
bad lawyers, bad corpora-
tions, and bad government
officials, Grippando
employs a likable hero
caught up in a dangerous
situation from which .he
must extricate himself and
often others.
Fiction writing is classi-
fied into as many as 20 or
more different "genre" or
forms. The thriller genre
(which borrows elements
from the suspense, adven-
ture, and mystery genres)
are fast-paced stories set in a
specific world. If you enjoy
thrillers, some subgenres
and authors you may want,
to check out include:
Espionage / Intelligence
--Joseph Finder, Ken
Follett, Alan Furst, Jack
Higgins, John Le Carre,
Robert Littell, and Daniel
Silva

STAFF PICKS
"Power, Faith, and
Fantasy: America in the
Middle East, 1776 to the
present" by Michael B.
Oren McN 327.56 Ore
From the first cannonballs
fired by American warships
at North African pirates to
the conquest of Falluja by
Marines, the United States
has been dramatically
involved in the Middle East.
For well over two centuries,
American statesmen, mer-
chants, and missionaries
have had a profound impact
on the shaping of this cru-
cial region.
Drawing on thousands of
government documents and
personal letters, featuring
original maps and more
than 60 photographs, this
book reconstructs the
diverse and remarkable
ways in which Americans
have interacted with, this
alluring yet often hostile
land.
"Taj Mahal: Passion and
Genius at the Heart of the
Moghul Empire" by Diana
and Michael Preston McN
954.025 Pre While Galileo
suffered under house arrest
at the hands of Pope Urban
VIII, the Thirty Years War
ruined Europe, and the
Pilgrims struggled to sur-
vive in the New World,
work began on what would
become one of the seven
wonders of the world: the
,Taj Mahal. Built by the
Moghul emperor Shah
Jahan as a memorial to his
beloved wife, Mumtaz
Mahal, its perfect symmetry
and gleaming presence have
for centuries dazzled every-
one who has seen it.
My oldest son, who spent
a month in India in 2005,
described it as "flawless and
the most amazing building
I've ever seen," With their
storytelling skills, the
Prestons bring alive both the
grand sweep of Moghul his-
tory and the details that
make it memorable.


"The Sea Captain's Wife:
A True Story of Love, Race,
and War in the Nineteenth
Century by Martha Hodes
306.84 Hod Award-winning
historian Martha Hodes
brings us ifito the extraordi-
nary world of Eunice
Connolly. Born white and
poor in New England,
Eunice moved from coun-
tryside to factory city,
worked in the mills, then
followed her husband to the
Deep South. When the Civil
War came, Eunice's brothers
joined the, Union army
while her husband fought
and died for the
Confederacy. Back in New
England, a widow and the
mother of two, Eunice bare-
ly got by as a washer-
woman, struggling with
crushing depression. Four
years later, she fell in love
with a black sea captain,
married him, and moved to
his home in the West Indies.
Following every lead in a
collection of 500 family let-
ters, Hodes traced Eunice's
footsteps and met descen-
dants along the way. This
story of misfortune and
defiance takes up grand
themes of American history
and was named one of
Library Journal's Best Books
of 2006.

Freshwater fishing license not required


From Staff Reports
Now's the time to gas up
the truck, load up the kids,
break out your fishing gear
and go fishing! This week-
end, you won't even need a
license to fish in fresh water
here in Florida the number
one destination for anglers
from all over the world.
The Florida Legislature
and the Fish and Wildlife


Conservation Commission
set aside one weekend per
year for residents and visitors
to enjoy freshwater fishing
without having to worry
about buying a fishing
license. All other fishing
rules still apply.
Bob Wattendorf, an FWC
fisheries biologist, said Free
Freshwater Fishing Weekend
is an opportunity for parents
to open a whole new world of


adventure with their chil-
dren, as well as a convenient
opportunity for adults who
haven't caught a fish in a
while to get reacquainted
with angling.
Free Fishing Weekend
applies to freshwater fishing
only.
Florida residents who take
advantage of Free Freshwater
Fishing Weekend may want
to check into another promo-


tion the FWC has in progress.
The first 3,000 Florida resi-
dents to purchase the $61.50
five-year freshwater fishing
license will receive $60 worth
of free hooks, lures, reel
grease, an award-winning
"fish call," magazines and
other goodies in the mail.
"This is a great way to help
contribute to the future of fish
and wildlife conservation in
Florida," Wattendorf said.


April 7-8
"Anybody who is interested
can get more information -
including up-to-date infor-
mation about whether the
3,000 limit still is open at

Fishing licenses are avail-
able for instant use at county
tax collectors' offices, license
agents, online, or over the
phone at

Laurel Hill clinches softball district title


Randy Dickson
Florida Freedom
Newspapers

LAUREL HILL Katie
Free was perfect in the pitcher
circle on Tuesday as Laurel
Hill walked to an easy 17-0
win over East Hill Christian.
And walking is just what
Laurel Hill batters did 11
times in the 17-run second.
The game was called after
five innings on the mercy
rule.
Equally important is the
fact that the Hoboes claimed
their first District 1-A regular
season title since advancing to
the state semifinals in 2004.
The regular season crown
means nothing as far as state
competition goes, but it does
assure Laurel Hill of the top
seeding in the district tourna-


ment that will be played later
this month in Paxton.
"I think we have a chance
to make it (back to the state
tournament)," second base-
man Diedre Harrison said.
"We've won all our district
games but one and we have a
chance to make it that far.
"We have no seniors so if
we don't make it this year,
we'll make it next year."
If Free continues to throw
like she did against the
Eagles, the future could be
now.
The junior fanned nine of
the 15 batters she faced in the
shortened contest.
"It feels really good to
wrap it up (the top seed in the
district) it really does," Free
said. "It was really hard.
"This is the kind of game


(with all the walks) that you
don't want to play, but you
have to play it to get in the
district and all."
"We scored most of the
runs on walks," Laurel Hill
coach Scott Varum said. "We
got that lead and we wanted
to get on out of here. It wasn't
benefiting us any with all
those walks.
"We tried to get some peo-
ple in there in the end that
hadn't played. Like I told
them, we secured the deal
today we're officially first
place."
Allicia Griggs was the hit-
ting star for the Hoboes (8-5,
7-1) as she had two of the
three Laurel Hill hits and
drove in four runs. Griggs
also scored twice.
Michelle Raite had the

Hobo pitcher Katie Free pitches against East Hill Christian Tuesday. She pitched a
no-hitter, helping her team to a 17-0 victory over the Eagles.


other Laurel Hill hit and
drove in a run and scored
twice.
The rest of the damage was
done via the base on balls
rout.
"It was crazy," second
baseman Deidre Harrison
said. "It reminded me of the
Rocky Bayou game where we
were down 12-1.
"But we were up 17-0 and
we scored all our runs in the
second inning. I got up to bat
three times. It was crazy."
Varnum said earning the
top seed allowed the Hoboes
to be in the best position to
win the tournament while the
other teams battle it out to see
who faces them.
In the meantime he'll try to
fine tune things for the post-
season.
"We're still not where we
need to be," Varnum said.
"We've got the toughest part
of schedule coming up.
"We've got Baker on
Thursday, South Walton next
Monday, Walton that
Thursday and Ponce de Leon
that Friday. That's four tough
games for us and we'll have to
play our "A" game to beat
any of them."
? Baker 8, Laurel Hill 7:
Baker used a five-run third
inning to build the lead and
then held off Laurel Hill's
rally in the bottom of the sev-
enth.
Candice Williamson was 3-
for-5 with an RBI and a run
scored to lead the Gators.
Chelsea Combest was 2-for-5

Barton was 1-for-2 with an

1-for-4.
Whitney Boutwell (7-6),
who pitched the first three
innings, got the win.

Crestview aiming for semifinal slot


From Staff Reports
When the season began,
Crestview softball coach
Keith White knew his team
had potential.
He envisioned a team
that competed with state
powers Niceville and Pace.
He knew his team had the
ability to play with anybody.
Fast forward to Tuesday
when the Bulldogs closed


out District 1-5A play with
an 8-3 win over Tate.
The victory gave the
Bulldogs, who made the
semifinals in the district
tournament last year, the
third seed this season with a
6-4 record. Overall, the
Bulldogs are 14-8 after the
win, and they took the field
on Friday against Baker.
"This is what I thought
we could do," White said.


Their run through district
included a 2-1 loss to top-
seed Niceville on the road,
as well as an upset win over
the Patriots. A semifinal
matchup with Pace lies
ahead, granted the Bulldogs
win in the first round of
course.
"We are in the position
we wanted to be," White
said. "It's coming together. I
knew we could compete at


this level."
In the win over Tate,
Jessica Long sparked an
early outburst that saw the
Bulldogs score seven runs in
the first three innings.
Long had two hits, scored
twice and drove in two runs.
Heather Kelly also had two
hits and scored twice.
Autumn Norris, Tera Gainer
and Megan Eason added to
the scoreboard.


Shasta Tew picked up the
victory, allowing six hits in
the complete-game effort.
Crestview scored twice in
the first, then once in the
second before exploding for
four in the third to push the
advantage to 7-0. They
added their final run in the
fifth, then held on as the
Aggies scored their three
runs in the final two
innings.
