"Family, police still baffled by
disappearance ofKristy Rogers.
Brian Hughes
Crestview News Bulletin
CRESTVIEW Ten years ago Thursday morning,
Kristy Jean Rogers left her boy friend's home and strolled
into oblivion.
The disappearance of Rogers remains an intriguing
case for Crestview Police Department Investigator Lt.
Kay Pitts, "It's been really frustrating because this is
the first and only case I haven't been able to solve," she
said.
The substantial case file is packed full of reports and
interviews accumulated over the years. "If there's any
kind of lead, we follow up on it," Pitts said. Yet every'
promising development has only led to a dead end.
Rogers, who was just three weeks shy of her 17th
birthday, spent the night of Aug. 1, 1997, with her
boyfriend Mack Cawthon, then 18, at his Lloyd Street
home. It was the first time she spent the night with him.
Though Pitts described their relationship .as "on-
again, off-again," she said there are "no inconsistencies
With his story."
SAccording to Cawthon's testimony, he had asked
Rogers to leave at 5 a.m., so his grandparents, who lived
next door, wouldn't know he'd entertained an overnight
guest.
"He wanted her (Rogers) out of there before anyone
saw her there," explained Pitts.
The early hour of Rogers' apparent departure from
Cawthon's house, however, meant the likelihood of
someone seeing her as she took the 15-minute walk to
^* "her home on Walnut Avenue was remote.
"Iinterviewed people up and down the streets where
she would've walked," said Pitts, "but not a whole lot of
people are stirring around at that hour."
Pitts investigated Rogers' home life, but found no
impetus for her to want to leave. "She wasn't a runaway.
She had no problems at home," Pitts said. "There was
no reason for her to leave home. She tpok nothing with
her," including medication she was taking for a kidney

Street Crimes

Unit takes

down drug

dealers
Brian Hughes
Crestview News Bulletin
CRESTVIEW The Crestview Police
Department's Street Crimes Unit executed
several drug-related arrests Friday and
Saturday.
Wired so Street Crimes Unit Investigator
Matt Purvines could monitor him, Officer
Nolan Weeks drove an unmarked police
car to the area of South Booker Street and
Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
After about a minute, "I was approached
by an older black male" who asked, "What
you looking' for?" said Weeks.
Using $40 of "pre-recorded drug buy
money," Weeks bought two rocks of crack
cocaine from the man, who walked to
the Brotherhood Club and returned two
minutes later with the drugs.
Investigator Zach Faircloth and Lt. Joseph
Floyd arrested the suspect, Derek L. Clark,
56, of Crestview for sale of cocaine.
Less than three hours later, Jerrold "Too
Smooth" Gundy, 32, of Crestview, was
arrested- at Walnut Avenue and Booker
Street for the same crime, using the same
technique. '
This incident also led to the arrest of
Jessie Lee Coleman, 28, also of Crestview,
whom Gundy identified as the distributor
of the drugs, according to a police report.
After a brief foot chase, Coleman
was subdued, handcuffed and charged
with selling/distribution of a controlled
substance within 1,000 feet of government
housing.
"We just generally try to cover all the
geographic areas of the city," Floyd stated.
"We want everyone to know we are not
specifically targeting any one community.
We target all the drug areas, wherever they
are."

Rink picks up NFSO baton 1


Brian Hughes
Crestview News Bulletin

NICEVILLE Maestro
Jeffrey Rink, the newly
appointed director of
the Northwest Florida
Symphony Orchestra,
mopped his brow. "The
older I get, the more
tolerant I think I'm getting
of the heat," he said. "I'm
anxious to see how long I
can keep cycling."
The sultry summer
weather of the Florida
Panhandle does not seem
to disagree with the tall,
affable conductor. Indeed,
it's something of a relief
from the December 2005
night that started him on
his path to OWC from
Boston.
"I came home one
night... and it was a typical
dark 5 p.m. and sleeting
and I had a miserable
day at work and I said, 'I
have to get out of here',"
Rink related. "There was a
message on my answering
machine asking if I could
come conduct a concert in
January."
It happened the concert,
which the NFSO requested
Rink to guest conduct, was
held the one weekend he
had open in his January
2006 schedule.
"I came down and did
the program thinking
'that was that'," said Rink.
Then came the settlement
of the Mattie Kelly estate
and the college was able
to endow the Mattie Kelly
Distinguished Endowed
Teaching Chair in Music
and Conducting.
During a nationwide
search, esteemed finalists
conducted the symphony
and worked with its
members. In April, Maestro
Rink, then wearing multiple
hats as the music director
of Chorus pro Musica and
the Newton Symphony


Special to the News Bulletin
Maestro Jeffrey Rink, who formerly held several
conducting and teaching positions in Boston, will lead
the Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra as it begins
its 21st season.


Orchestra, director of
orchestral activities at the
Longy School of Music
(where he also conducted
the Longy Chamber
Orchestra) and faculty
member of the University
of Massachusetts-Boston,
interviewed for the
position.
"IwentbacktoBostonand
three days later I got a call
offering me the position,"
Rink said. "I was thinking
of taking a sabbatical from
my activities there.".
Though Rink will fulfill
previous commitments to
conduct a couple of concerts
next season in Boston and
Japan, he insisted "my
primary responsibilities
will be conducting this


one orchestra in this one
community. It is very
attractive to me."
Rink admits he has
"inherited somewhat of
a season," including the
Christmas pops program,
The Nutcracker and a family
program in February. "But
I was able to choose the
first and last programs," he
said.
For his opening piece as
the orchestra's new director,
"I wanted to find something
that was really going to
excite the audience," he
said. "I just thought the
opening fifth of The Flying
Dutchman is so hair raising.
Even before you hear the
theme it's like a punch in
the nose."


On the same opening
program is Anton Dvorak's
Symphony No. 8, which Rink
called "a personal favorite
of mine and one I know the
audience will just eat up."
As he settles into his
role, Rink would like to
take the joy and excitement
of symphonic music into
the community. "A very
important thing is getting
into the schools," he said.
He'd like to have groups
perform for students, "not
just string players, but
winds and brass. If you
have a wind ensemble
come in, kids will say "gee,
there's something I could
do after school.
"I'd like to try to do
more things at Eglin Air
Force Base," he continued,
"There are a lot of well-
educated, world-traveled
people there."
Pre-concert talks are also
an important item on Rink's
agenda. Rink envisions a
program, perhaps on local
cable channels, that is "light,
not heavy or technical, to
tell people what they will
experience, because I think
the experiential component
of music is so important,"
he said.
"I think it's important
that people who have not
been to a classical music
program will understand
what they will experience."
With his teenage son
and daughter enrolled in
Niceville High School and
his first and last concerts of
the new season prepared,
Jeffrey Rink is settling into
his new position. "We're
getting more and more
unpacked, he said. "Things
are starting to get into
gear."
When he was leaving
the northeast, Rink said,
"People in Boston had
never heard of Niceville. I'd
kinda like to keep it a secret
a while!"

infection.
"If you're a teenage girl
planning to leave home,"
Pitts continued, "your best
friend knows what's going
on, but none of (Rogers')
friends knew anything."
Rogers' mother, Wilma
Sanders, now a resident of
Enterprise, Ala., confirmed
Pitts' assessment. "We were
more like friends or sisters
than mother and daughter,"
Sanders was quoted in the
Northwest Florida Daily
News on Sept. 18, 1997.
The Florida Department
of Law Enforcement entered
the case, and with Crestview
Police, searched Cawthon's
home, the woods behind
and near his house, and
"numerous areas where we
thought she could be," said
Pitts.
Regional and national
leads were pursued,
including the disappearance
of Kimberley Ramer from


Opp, Ala., who was about
Rogers' age and shared a
similar description. Ramer
disappeared a couple of
weeks before Rogers.
Ramer's disappearance,
however, was clearly an
abduction, as evidenced
by signs of a struggle at the
scene. Still, investigators
interviewed the mothers of
both girls to try to identify
potential common links.
None were found.
A month later, 18-
year-old Brandy Nicole
Howard's battered body
was discovered in south
Crestview, generating
rumors of other teen
disappearances and slaying
in the area. These proved
unsubstantiated.
A few leads, and even the
discovery of a body at first
identified as Rogers, surfaced
during the years-long
investigation. According to
Daily News reports:


DIAMOND, continued from Al


his classmates, teachers and
friends.
Though proud of his
efforts on Crestview High's
track team and French Club,
music has always been in
the forefront of Diamond's
life.
"I was always singing,"
he said of his childhood.
"My mom said I was
destined to do music-type
stuff because I was always
singing."
When he started high
school, Diamond moved in
'with his grandparents. "Me
and my grandparents are
probably more alike than
me and my parents," he
explained. "They're quiet."
In the peace of their


home he can pursue other
passions: reading and old
movies. "I love Agatha
Christie," he confessed.
"My grandmother said,
'There's nothing wrong
with doing what you want
to do.'"
His membership in the
Tri-M music honor society
and four years in the chorus
are evidence of his love
of music, but it is when
Diamond talks about his
beloved cello that the quiet
young man becomes most
animated.
Few Okaloosa County
high school grads have ever
heard of 18m-century Italian
composer Luigi Boccherini
or the Minuet from his


In February 1998, a bag
containing clothing, keys and
makeup belonging to Rogers
was discovered behind a
shopping center close to
where she disappeared.
A body found in a
Palm Beach canal in 1999
was tentatively identified
as Rogers. Sanders even
planned a funeral, but last
minute examinationof dental
remains proved the body
was not her daughter's.
A December 1999
analysis of blood samples
found in the home of
Sanders' then-boyfriend,
Robert Willcut, were not
from Rogers.
A July 2001 search for
bones under a house revealed
only animal fragments.
Rogers' uncle, Allen
Glass, who lives off Auburn
Road north of town, remains
incredulous that anyone
would cause his niece harm.

Glass said. "She'd give you
the shirt off her back. She

raises eyebrows among his
peers, Diamond smiled and
said, "I definitely don't like
conformity. Just because the
kids say something is cool
doesn't mean it's cool for
everybody."
Although his musical
tastes range from classical
to reggae to rap and beyond,
he's good-natured when
teased about his choice of
instrument. Diamond just
chuckles and says, "I don't
pay much attention to it. I
try to encourage people to
have diversity. Just keep an
open mind."
One such critic is his
mom. "She's always telling
me I need to listen to her
music more," Diamond
said, so she plays it
whenever he's in her car.
Smiling, he says when she
rides in his car, however, "I
play Beethoven and Bach."
Then he added, "But she
just doesn't get it."
Montavious Diamond's
cello has expanded
his horizons in many
dimensions. "I feel more
tranquil when I play it. I
like nature more, I observe
things and think of things
differently," he reflected.
"It helps me think outside
the box. I don't know how it
does it, but it does."


DRUG,
continued from Al
"wants to take an aggressive
stance on drug dealing
because it's a gateway
crime," Floyd continued. "It
reduces the overall volume
of crime when we get the
drug dealers off the street,"
he explained.

Although the election is 11
months away, I'm excited to
see interest in the race already
heating up. Of course, I have
some pretty self-serving reasons
for that, since elections make
for good news copy. From the
Bulletin's standpoint, it would
be nice if more people enter the
race, since actual elections are a
lot more interesting to cover than
candidates running unopposed.
Carmical's announcement,
along with incumbent Sherry
Campbell's decision to run
for the state House seat being
vacated by state Rep. Don Brown
in 2008, has got me thinking
about what the Bulletin's policy
should be regarding endorsing
candidates.
Many papers do endorse
candidates on their editorial
pages. It's a time honored
tradition, and many candidates
lobby hard for the endorsement
of their local newspaper's
editorial board.
While it's tempting to weigh
in on such important matters,
I'm inclined to shy away from
the practice. My reluctance is due
in no small part to the fact that
in a relatively small community
such as Crestview and the
surrounding North Okaloosa
County area, it's hard to take
sides on the editorial pages
without giving the impression
that every story in the paper
is biased toward or against a
particular candidate.
But just because we're not
going to promote any candidates
doesn't mean you can't. In fact,
we welcome your letters to the
editor in support of the person
you think is right for the job.
As the election draws closer,
we will place limits on the
number of letters a person can
write, and we'll institute a cut-off
date for election-related missive.
But for now, we encourage you
to share your thoughts about any
number of topics.
The address for your letters

Some political and personal observations, part II


low About

a Congress

I Lou Frey

Iraq continues to
remain the biggest
problem for the Bush
administration. The
President has certainly
not been helped with
recent remarks from
the leaders of Iraq,
including the statement
that they are going
to adjourn in August
because of the heat. Our
soldiers don't have that
option. The Democrats
are getting a lot of good
face time regarding
their proposals in
the Congress for
withdrawal, including a
recent all night session.
It is a popular position
and one that is safe
for them to take as it
isn't going to happen,
at least precipitously,
until January, 2009.
President Bush will veto
any such legislation,
and unless there are
some dramatic changes,
will keep enough
votes in the House and


probably the Senate
to sustain his veto. As
we have learned, the
President is not poll
driven, although some
Republicans probably
wish he was more
"Clintonesque."
I had written some
weeks ago about
McCain's probable
strategy, with the
need to win in the
early states to build
momentum. His recent
poor financial showing
makes this the only
strategy if he is going
to get the Republican
nomination. McCain's
problem is going to
be hanging in the race
and keeping viable in
Iowa, New Hampshire,
South Carolina and
Florida. Money will be
a continuing problem.
What happens in Iraq
could make a major
difference in McCain's
campaign if all of a
sudden it turns positive,
but this is a long shot.
It's a 50/50 bet that he
will last until the Iowa
caucuses.
The problems that
McCain is having could
cause problems for those


who are supporting
him in Florida. McCain
was very helpful to
both Charlie Crist and
Mel Martinez when
they were running for
governor and senator,
respectively. Neither are
in a position to endorse
McCain because of the
positions they hold,
i.e., Florida governor
and Republican Party
chairman. However,
many people close to
Martinez and Crist have
come out for McCain,
including major fund-
raisers.
It will be interesting
to see how long these
people stay with
McCain, and if they
jump where will they
go? Many of the Jeb
Bush people are with
Romney, while recently
elected Attorney
General Bill McCollum
is the Florida chairman
for Giuliani. There is one
common thread between
those who are big hitters
in politics. They like to
be with a winner and
don't have a great deal
of patience. McCain
desperately needs those
in Florida to stay by


him, and if they don't
this could be the final
nail in the coffin.
A recent poll in
Florida found that
Senator Mel Martinez,
who was elected in
2004, has more people
who disapprove of
his job performance
than approve of it, but
no one questions his
honesty and integrity.
The problem has been
his involvement in the
immigration bill and
also his support for
many of the presidential
initiatives as chairman
of the Republican Party.
Many of us who
admire the senator
were not enthusiastic
about his becoming
Republican National
chairman, as this limits
his ability to react
personally on many
issues. My guess is the
problem will be short
lived as the Republicans
will have a presidential
nominee on Feb. 5 and
that nominee will want
his own person in place,
not Martinez. This will
give the senator the
freedom that he needs
and he can set about


rebuilding his approval
rating throughout the
state.
It is fortunate for
him that his re-election
is not in 2008, but
2010. However, many
Republican senators
are running in 2008 and
do not have the luxury
of time that Senator
Martinez does, and
the Republicans will
probably pay a high
price in the 2008 Senate
elections. It is possible
the Democrats could
get 60 votes and thus be
able to totally control
the Senate agenda. This
type of control is not
good for the country,
whether the Republicans
or the Democrats are in
charge.
As I said in last
week's column, not
much has changed and
it appears I missed very
little. Fortunately the
two-week-long Lou Frey
High School Academy
at University of Central
Florida is under way
and I have been once
again inspired by these
fine young people from
around Florida. More on
this next week.


No favoritism whatsoever for terrorists


The Miller
SReport

Jeff Miller

Last week, Speaker
Nancy Pelosi, the
American Civil Liberties
Union and the lawyer
for Osama Bin Laden's
personal driver came
together and introduced
a piece of legislation
that would grant more
legal rights to terrorists
than what American
citizens have already.
Whether trying to send
dangerous terrorists
from Guantanamo
Bay to the Naval Air
Station Pensacola brig or
mandating an immediate
surrender in Iraq, the
current majority has its
priorities backwards.
I am amazed by

you I will work to fight

The current set of
laws, procedures and
policies governing the
detainment, processing,
transferring and
sentencing of combatants
from Afghanistan are fair
and just. Furthermore,
they offer extensive
opportunities for review
and oversight. This new
and flawed approach
actually creates a
completely new system
without replacing the
current system. It is
simply more bureaucracy
and will create a lengthy
litigious situation.

newly proposed habeas
corpus bill. They claim
the terrorists should
be afforded multiple
additional rights and
the ability to constantly
challenge their detention.
This habeas corpus bill
creates a diverse menu
of options for which
trial lawyers and their
allies can choose from
while representing
people such as Kalid
Sheik Mohammed, the
mastermind of the 9 / 11
attacks. These options
allow the trial lawyers
and terrorist apologists to
protract the prosecution
of these dangerous
men and in fact delay
the timely transfer or
sentencing of these
individuals- something
everyone should want.
Congressman Jerrold
Nadler, who represents


is encouraged to attend. If you

holds its regular training meeting


parts of New York City,
is a key backer of the
movement to give the
detainees at Guantanamo
habeas corpus rights. In
a recent hearing he made
some comments I believe
you will find interesting.
Below is an excerpt from
a national publication
recounting the comments
and-providing context
for them:
"A few weeks ago,
former White House
aide Bradford Benson
testified before the House
Judiciary Committee
about the much-debated
question of whether
suspected terrorist
detainees should have
habeas corpus rights.
During one exchange,
Rep Jerrold Nadler had
this to say: "I don't see
how you can pick up
someone in New York


the second and fourth Thursdays
from 7 p.m. at the fire station
located at 490 W. U.S. 90 in Holt.
Persons interested in joining
the department are welcome to
attend.
The DORCAS FIRE
DISTRICT holds monthly
meetings at 4418 Poverty Creek
Rd., Crestview station #41 at 7

VOLUNTEER FIRE


and say that his rights are
different or less because
he's accused of being an
enemy combatant, based
on whatever information,
as opposed to his being
accused of being a'
murderer."
Benson responded:
"[We] need to be clear
about what that means.
It means that if we had
captured Mohammed
Atta on September 10,
we would have had no
choice but to treat him
as a criminal defendant,
which would have
meant no interrogation,
no intelligence, and the
World Trade Center is
coming down."
Nadler interjected,
"That's exactly right."
The same rights as an
American citizen? More
rights for jihadis? I don't
think so.


DEPARTMENT holds its regular
monthly meetings on the second
Friday of each month at 7 p.m. in
the Fire Department office located
in the Laurel Hill City Hall. The
public is always welcome to

The NORTH OKALOOSA

A6 I Crestview News Bulletin CRIME WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 1, 2007


By Brian Hughes


These stories and
quotations included in
them were gleaned from
official reports provided
by the respective agencies
credited.

The key to the
crime
If you're gonna torch
your ride for the insurance
money and blame it
miscreants, it helps not to
drive it to the crime scene
yourself.
In September 2005,
a Lakeland resident's
2001 Isuzu Rodeo was
destroyed by fire. Tests
showed the fire was
* intentionally set using
gasoline as a propellant.
Detective. Gary A.
Gazillo of the State Fire
Marshall's Bureau of Fire
and Arson Investigation
determined that the owner
and his wife had the only
sets of keys to the SUV.
A locksmith examined
the vehicle in October 2005
and found the vehicle had
not been broken into, nor
had it been started and
driven to Crestview, site
of the fire, without using
the factory-supplied keys.
At the end of June,
Det. Gazillo arrested the
truck's owner in Crestview
on charges of arson and
"burning to defraud."

The bear facts
of the matter
In a tragic case of
sibling rivalry gone awry,
a domestic brouhaha in
Holt resulted in the arrest
of the younger sister of
two siblings.
Last Thursday, the girl
was distressed because her
siblings and two friends
kidnapped her teddy
bear, cut it up and threw
it in a creek. In retaliation,
she started jumping up
and down on her little
brother's Playstation 2.
Events escalated.
Little Brother was
understandably annoyed
and asked her to stop.
Sister pulled a knife.
Brother restrained Sister
and removed the knife
from her hand.
Without mommy and
daddy at home to run
to, the disarmed sister
instead called Okaloosa
Sheriff's deputies. After
taking statements from
witnesses, including one
who "tripped over a cut
off bush and fell on her
stomach" during the
procedure, the deputies
arrested the girl who


called them on charges of
aggravated assault and
domestic violence.
Though behaving like
toddlers, the arrested girl
is 21, her brother is 19 and
their sister is 18. All three
siblings were due to be
evicted from the Log Lake
Road home on Friday. The
witness who fell on her
face was eight months
pregnant.
Okaloosa County Sheriff's
Office

Seems logical
So there's this 22-year-
old airman from Eglin
who's separating from
his wife. Meanwhile,
they sleep in separate
bedrooms.
Last Thursday night she
called a male friend, and
the jealous soon-to-be ex
listens outside the door. He
then bursts in and "began
cursing obscenities,"
the Crestview Police
Department report states.
Told to leave the room,
the defendant refused.
Neighbors summoned by
the terrified, woman found
her husband "on his hands
and knees upon the bed
with his face a few inches"
from hers, "screaming
more obscenities at her."
The wife said she was
"terrified" of her husband,
who had hit her in the
past.
Before being arrested
and charged with
domestic violence assault,
"the defendant also stated
that he had indeed struck
the victim in the past ..
but that he is now taking
medications for his anger
problems along with
counseling.
"The defendant further
stated that he did not leave
the bedroom because he is
tired of being told what to
do by his wife."
Crestview Police
Department

Have soda, will
travel
You've got to wonder
just where on his person
the thief who tried to rob
the Tom Thumb at 802 N.
Ferdon Blvd. concealed a
2-liter bottle of Vault soda.
But the 22-year-old male
tried it at 2:05 Saturday
morning and it didn't
work.
Instead of paying
$1.69 for the soft drink,
he'll be paying rather
a bit more, beginning
with an immediate free
ride in a police car and a
complimentary trip to jail.

ON THIS DAY IN
HISTORY
After its first bid for


1d is

our idea of

a merger.

Family.. it's far more
important than profits.
That's why in these days
of mergers and corporate
takeovers, we've made a
commitment to stay a
family-owned business.

statehood was vetoed by
President Andrew Johnson,
Colorado entered the Union
on Aug. 1, 1876, the year
the United States celebrated
its centennial. Thus, the
38th State is known as the
Centennial State.

STAFF PICKS
"Centennial" by James A.
Michener Fic Mic The story
of Centennial, Colorado,
begins when the earth
formed the area and ends
in the 1970s with human
disregard for its benefits and
beauties, and also tells the
history of relations between
the white settlers and Native
Americans.
The mother of a friend
of mine was the reference
librarian at the Greeley
public library in 1970 when
James Michener walked
in looking for local people
who had lived in the area
for generations to interview.
Having earlier been the
bookmobile librarian and
well acquainted with the
isolated rural area, she
introduced him to Clyde
Stanley, the newspaperman/
postmaster / general store
owner of the now ghost town
of Keota whose ancestors
came there in covered
wagons. Michener dedicates
"Centennial" to three people,
one of whom is Clyde
Stanley, "who introduced
me to the prairie."
For 50 of his 90 years,
James Michener shared his
enthusiastic and virtually
unquenchable interest in
the past and present of
the world by writing 69
books 23 of which are


*Medical Degree Wayne State
University Detroit, Michigan
*Undergraduate Degree Bachelor of
Science Michigan State University


As a comprehensive ophthalmologist, she has experience in the medical
and surgical treatment of eye diseases' including cataracts with
intraocular lens implants, glaucoma, cornea and external disease,
oculoplastic surgery (plastic surgery of the eyelids), diabetes,
macular degeneration, pediatrics, and laser surgery.

novels. When he died in
1997, nearly 100 million
copies of his books had been
printed. Today, Michener is
best known for the dozen
or so fact-filled lengthy
novels that take the reader
from the very beginnings
of his subject (such as
Hawaii, Mexico, Alaska,
Caribbean, Texas, Poland,
Space, or Chesapeake)
to the publication date,
interweaving bits of
humankind's part in its
history through anecdotes
and characters who served
to showcase the history
and science of the subject.
The combination of well-
researched history and
fictional narrative make
these books both educational
and entertaining.
Michener populated each
of his novels with members
of a few families, so the saga
of the family was inextricably
entwined with the history
of the locale. Michener's
characters have their ups
and downs, but don't tend
to brood about what went
wrong or what might have
been.
They simply pick
themselves up, dust
themselves off, and get on
with making the future
happen. There is conflict;
there are the rich and the
poor, the good and the bad,
but generally the future is
better, the challenges are met,
and the ending is positive.
So if you've never tried a
Michener novel, come check
one out.

QUOTE OF THE
WEEK
"When I was a child in the
Navy during World War 1, I1
was perennially grateful to
the armed services libraries
for having on hand a good
supply of those pocket books,
which were so common in
that period. I must have read
a couple hundred of them,
and they did a lot to save my
sanity." James A. Michener

BACKYARD


CONSERVATION
By Darryl Williams



BRUSH PIES:


GOOD FOR WILDIFE


IN THE BACKYARD OR


IN THE COUNTRYSIDE


Whether it's a series of
large piles along a forest
edge or a smaller single pile
near a bird feeder in your
backyard or acreage, you
can make your land more
accommodating for wildlife
by building brush piles. Piles
of tree limbs, brush, rocks,
and other debris, large or
small, can offer refuge to
birds and other wildlife from
the weather and predators.
Once common on most
farms, brush pile habitat
has been lost in many parts
of the countryside as fence
lines have disappeared
along with the diversified
agriculture that's now gone
with many farms. Larger
fields and "clean, farming",
methods have led to fewer
brush piles.
Helpful to many species
Depending on size and
location, brush piles are
habitat for bobwhite quail,
rabbits, ruffed grouse, wild
turkeys, skunks, raccoons,
woodchucks, chipmunks,


mockingbirds, cardinals,
juncos and many other small
mammals and birds. They
may also attract coyotes,
foxes, bobcats, hawks, owls
and other predators because
of the mammal and bird
populations using them.
Location
Good locations for
brush piles include edges
of woodlands, along field
borders, and in shelterbelts.
Four piles per acre, spaced
150 feet apart, will give
ample wildlife cover.
Building the pile
The most important
concept in building the pile is
to form a solid, rot-resistant
base layer with filler above
that provides tunnels, dens
and openings for animals to
hide.
Build the base with large
hardwood stumps, logs
and other large diameter
material and then crisscross
filler branches on top. Most
brush piles are mound or
tepee shaped. An alternative


is to "hinge-cut" several trees
along timber edges to create
a living brush pile. Partially
cut the trees two feet off the
ground, allowing the trees
to fall leaving a portion still
connected to the stump.
Stack more branches on the
tree but leave the treetops
uncovered so they can grow
for a period of time.
When to build
A good time to build a
brush pile is in the early
spring or late fall, as a part
of timber harvest, stand
improvement, or firewood
cutting.
Maintenance
The brush pile will decay,
so it's a good idea to add new
material each year.

Kerry Earnhardt coming close to the comm-unity


By BillGamblin
Florida Freedom Ne% spapers
Race fans will have an
opportunity to meet Kerry
Earnhardt as he visits the gulf
coast area on Friday.
Eamhardt, who is the
oldest son of the late Dale
Eamhardt, Sr., will be at
Hank Aaron Stadium for an
autograph session as part of
a fund-raiser for "Homes For
Our Troops", an organization
that is helping area veterans.
Kerry will be on hand at
6 p.m. to sign autographs
for the fans and will also be
involved during some of the
in-game promotions.
"I am looking forward to
seeing the race fans before
the game," said Earnhardt
"Everywhere I go I meet
people who knew my dad
or grandfather and raced at a
track against them.
"I always look forward to
hearing and enjoying those
* stories."
Friday's event will help
Marine Sergeant Greg
Edwards, who is a veteran of
the War in Iraq.
"I am honored to be helping
with this fund-raiser by
Homes For Our Troops," said
Earnhardt, who is focusing on
the career of his middle son
Jeffrey in the Busch East Series.
"Sergeant Edwards is a double
amputee who has served three
tours in Iraq and also suffered a
shattered hand.
"These guys fight for our
freedom and I am glad I can go


out and help an organization
like this to help our troops.
This is our way to show our
appreciation to the military"
Earnhardt and Edwards
are both slated to throw
out ceremonial first pitches
prior to the game against the
Birmingham Barons.
The third generation racer is
still a little competitive when it
comes to what might happen
when he throws out the first
pitch.
"I am hoping he doesn't out
pitch me," said Earnhardt. "I
have heard he has an arm.
"But the biggest thing is the
moneybeingraisedatthisevent
to benefit Sgt. Edwards."
In this effort Regions Bank
is selling tickets to Friday's
game with 50 percent of the
proceeds from the tickets sold
going to help Sgt. Edwards. It
is unknown if Earnhardt, who
has joined Dale Eamhardt
Inc. since leaving ThorSport
Racing last season, will use
his connections to get some
practice in with the Kannapolis
Intimidators, a Class A affiliate
of the Chicago White Sox in the
South Atlantic League.
"The family has part
ownership of the team in dad's
hometown," said Eamhardt,-
who has joined his half sister
Kelly Eamhardt Elledge
and half brother Dale Jr. in
the opening of the Alabama
Motorsports Park. "Those are
some fun times as we still go
out to the home games. It is
something great for the family


and kids.
"These guys are die hard
players when you look at how
much time and effort they put
into the game and the fact they
never give up on their dream
of playing pro ball."
Eamhardt, who isbecoming
more involved in the family
business at DEI, has not given
up on his dream as a race car
driver, but he is being much
more selective about his
opportunities.
"My desire to drive and
race is still there, but I am
not going to put myself in a
position where I don't gain
something," said Eamhardt,
who won seven of the 11
ARCA RE/MAX Series events
he raced in covering 2000 and
2001. "I feel like I need to be in
competitive equipment and
that is with teams like Richard
Childress, Rick Hendrick, Joe
Gibbs, or DEI.
"Right now I don't see
anything in the near future as
we have discussions at DEI
and I will put my hand up to
volunteer, but I am not getting
great feedback. But I have
learned to never say never."
His best opportunity looked
to be in 2002, but that never
came to be.
"We were planning on
running some Cup, Busch,
and ARCA races in 2002 but
those plans were put away
and never happened," said
Eamhardt "I think that was
my once in a lifetime chance
with good equipment to show


Bill Gamblin Special to the News Bulletin
Kerry Earnhardt talks to a crew member while Paul
Menard looks on.


what I could do."
During thattwo-yearstretch
where he drove in the ARCA
Series for DEI, Eamhardt
learned the importance of
family and how you can take
things for granted.
"We were having a good
race at Charlotte with Blaise
(Alexander) who was one of
my good friends," recalled
Eamhardt. "We were having
fun swapping the lead back
andforthwhenwegottogether
coming off turn four. Blaise hit
the wall head on and my car
ended up on its roof sliding
into turn one.
"My car was on fire and
I was trying to get out as
quickly as I could and also get


back there to check on Blaise,
who lost his life in that wreck
The accident hurts Eamhardt
because he lost a friend and
fellow racer, but he has found
a way to glean something from
such a tragic event
"It got me closer to Blaise's
family and also taught me
how quick things can change,"
said Earnhardt "We can get
caught up in things and take
them for granted, but I learned
to appreciate my wife (Renee)
and kids and the opportunities
I have with them.
"Racing has always been
my dream and to be a driver,
but at the end of the day my
family and God are the most
important things in my life."
