portrait of jazz legend Billie Holiday by
a Crestview student won the coveted
Best of Show prize at the 12th Annual
Mattie Kelly Destin Festival of the Arts
last Saturday.
l Sophia Valverde, 17, an A/ P senior
at Crestview High School, is still riding
an emotional high following her entry,
in the collaborative tent, in which
works by student and professional
artists are exhibited side by side.
"It's the first time in the history of
the collaborative tent that a student
has won Best of Show," said festival
co-producer Deb Nissley.
"It was a wonderful surprise. I
think the judges just saw something
in her work that they didn't see
in any other piece in the exhibit,"
Nissley said.
"She's a very talented girl"

Among the benefits of belonging to
the organization is its clout in the state
legislature, particularly in matters
of pensions and retirement benefits,
Rogers explained. Demonstrating
a large, active membership helps
maintain that advantage, she said.
In addition to being an advocate
for retired teachers' pension plans, the
organization offers them insurance
plans, as well.
But the organization also does
much more.
"We encourage future teachers
through scholarships for seniors in
high school who want to become

not that many people who want to
become teachers these days."

Crestview's Main Street filled with
werewolves, spidermen, princesses
and even butterflies as families
gathered to enjoy the fun during this
year's Fall Festival on Saturday.
"The 2007 Fall Festival was
an exceptional success with an
outstanding turn out," according the
Crestview Main Street Director Bill
Kilpatrick.
He estimated the crowd at about
6,000 people for the five-hour event
that is jointly sponsored each year by
the Crestview Main StreetAssociation
and the city of Crestview.
There were a record number of
local merchants and vendors that
participated this year with 80 booths
that offered games, crafts and food.
Street entertainer Wade Henry

"The festival is getting bigger
and bigger each year," stated Main
Street Association President Mickey
Rtyman. "I'm especially happy with
this year's turn out. It's the most
people I've ever seen in Crestview."
Rtyman praised the members of
the Main Street Association, who
coordinated the event and the many
volunteers.
"If it were not for the many
volunteers, the festival would have
never been possible," said Rytman.
"We are now gearing up for the
next downtown event, which will be
the Christmas Parade that is scheduled
for Dec. 1," stated Rtyman.
He stressed that the parade
is open to the entire community

Crestview's Ninth Annual Motorcycle Run for the Toys


It's getting dose, once again, to
that time of year when we all start
thinking about giving gifts to those
we know and love. Well, for a lot
of motorcycle riders, it's just a little
different. They will be giving to
those they don't know, the needy
children of our area!
In the past eight years,
motorcycle enthusiasts from
Crestview and surrounding areas,
local businesses and individuals
have donated toys and gift
certificates to needy children
through (the Toys for Kids program
and) Run for the Toys.
And so it is time, once again, for
Crestview's Ninth Annual Run for

Water

shortage

hits home
To the editor and all county
residents:
An extremely serious water
shortage emergency exists in
the Southeast that has become
life threatening. Huge areas of
Georgia, Alabama and now North
Carolina are being declared
disaster areas. Life giving waters
are literally drying up! Atlanta,
the South's largest metropolitan
city of around 4,000,000, has now
started rationing water in every
home and this is being strictly
enforced. Georgia is beginning to
construct more reservoirs. Surface
water is by far the surest way to
preventing certain disaster.
Two of the Southeast's biggest
lakes, Lanier in Georgia and
Falls Lake in North Carolina, are
rapidly drying up, creating very
great danger for millions.
We are asking the ministers
of every church to begin mass
prayers for these unfortunate
people and asking at every service
for each person to join silently in
unison. Collective prayer can be
a powerful spiritual effort. Please
join.
Let us love and help our
neighbors, for we may be the next
victims. We do not have even
one reservoir to sustain us here.
Please pray also for a reservoir
that we are most surely going to
need. Streams flowing south are
beginning to lose the required
federal water flow, which
disallows suction by pipeline.
Thank you sincerely for your
caring and cooperation.

In Christ's name,
Ted Mathis
Dr. Mark Weatherly 682-2510


the Toys.
What is Toys for Kids? It is an
event in which motorcycle riders
from all over the area get together
to go on a motorcycle ride to
benefit the children of the area for
Christmas. At the end are food,
refreshments, a raffle, 50/50 and
more. Music will be provided by
Hat Trick Promotion's Glenn Rhyne.
Ten dollars or more and a new
unwrapped toy are the usual going
donation. Registration will be at the
Wal-Mart parking lot in Crestview
on Route 85, by the interstate,
between the hours of 9:30 and 11
a.m. Sunday, Nov. 4. The bike ride
will begin sharply at 11 a.m.


My ninth annual campaign was
kicked off again this year by a very
generous offer of a $1,000 donation
from our local Wal-Mart. Many
thanks to Wal-Mart and General
Manager Jon Kurpil.
My aim this year is to get more
local businesses and individuals
involved. Many businesses have
already joined in to donate in
the way of gift certificates, tools,
hairstyles, tattoos, dinners and
much, much more. All of which
will be raffled off to participants at
the end of the ride, which is very
graciously hosted, once again, by
the Veteran's of Foreign Wars Post
5450, located west of town on U.S.


Highway 90.
If you or a business would like to
make any type of donation to a very
worthy cause, please contact me at
537-9798. Let's make this the best
year yet.
All monetary donations should
be made out to Toys for Kids and
can either be called in to me or
deposited directly into the Toys for
Kids Account at the First National
Bank of Crestview, on Wilson Street
or at their new location on S.R. 85
North.
Last year, bikers raised $6,207
cash, along with two trucks and a
16-ft. trailer full of toys. Families
First Network (who distributes


all the funds and toys) bought gift
certificates to give to all the needy
older children ages 10-17 (over
$6,000 worth). According to sources,
every needy child under their care
received something. That's a lot of
kids.
Come out and watch hundreds
of motorcycles as they travel from
Wal-Mart to the VFW. We do this
rain or shine, so come on out and
participate, or cheer them on.
Families First said this is the
single largest contributing factor to
the needy children of this area for
Christmas. Every little bit helps, and
hope to see you there on Nov. 4.

Children's health insurance program vetoed


V The Miller

Report

fJeff Miller
The House failed to override
President Bush's veto of
the State Children's Health
Insurance Program. (SCHIP)
Thursday. I voted to sustain
the President's veto. I hope
that members will now be able
to draft a bipartisan, fiscally
responsible children's health
insurance program.
SCHIP is a federal program
where states provide health
insurance to children from
families with income above
Medicaid eligibility levels.
SCHIP spending has
significantly increased as states


have chosen to cover pregnant
women, childless adults, and
children from families with
incomes of more than 200
percent of poverty. The most
egregious is Minnesota, where
87 percent of SCHIP money
goes to adults. But not far
behind is Arizona, where 16
percent of their children are
uninsured, yet over half of its
SCHIP enrollees are adults. This
is outrageous.
We need to craft legislation
to achieve SCHIP's mission:
to provide health insurance to
needy, uninsured children. The
Democratic SCHIP bill does
nothing to ensure that children
under the 200 percent poverty
level have access to health
insurance.
I believe Congress can
pass a bipartisan bill, but it
can only be done with open


discussions. It is shameful that
Democrats have closed the bill
and engaged in the "take it or
leave it" approach. This puts
many of my colleagues in an
unfair position, since almost all
of us agree that health coverage
for underprivileged children is
vital.
I believe that SCHIP should
cover the most in need first and
should place the healthcare
choices in the hands of those
that are most suited to make
.this decision, the families of
these children. I am a cosponsor
of legislation that reauthorizes
the current SCHIP program
while providing enough
increases to be certain that no
current enrollees lose eligibility
or coverage.
For those above the income
requirement for SCHIP and up
to 300 percent of the federal


poverty level, the bill offers tax
credits or vouchers so families
can purchase the best coverage
for their children. Finally, the
bill creates a commission to
give grants to states with the
most innovative solutions to
covering their state's uninsured.
Additionally, the bill is
written in a manner that fully
offsets the cost of the program
so that those concerned about
our growing federal budget
win.
I support the current
SCHIP law and want to see it
reauthorized; however, I believe
it can be greatly improved.
There is no better time than
now to do it.
Jeff Miller is a member. of
Congress representing District 1
of Northwest Florida.

QUOTE OF THE
WEEK
"Outside of a dog, a
book is a man's best friend.
Inside a dog, it's too dark
to read." Groucho Marx


Heather Nitzel
Youth Services Librarian

Boto (pronounced Bo-
two) caused quite a stir
when he came to visit the
library the other day.
Peoplearen'taccustomed
to seeing dogs in the
library.
True, we don't allow
most of them inside, but
Boto isn't just any dog.
Boto's favorite pastime is
listening to children read!
How would you like to
read to Boto?
On Saturday, November
3, we are kicking off
READ (Reading Education
Assistance Dogs), a
program that has received
worldwide media attention.
READ pairs beginning or
struggling readers with a
dog and watches confidence
levels rise as children read"
to a good listener who will
not laugh at their mistakes.
READ will be offered the
first Saturday of each month
from 11 a.m. to noon.
Hank Cummings and
Silke (pronounced Silk-uh)
Cummings-Burek rescued
Boto from PAWS last year.
He had been abused but
now is in the most loving
of homes! Silke says he's
a "small" Newfoundland.
He looks like a small bear
to me, but she assures
me that he is true to the
Newfoundland breed,
which is .often referred to
as "gentle giants."
Silke tells me that
Newfoundlands really do
have the best character of all
dogs. (She's not biased!)
In Newfoundland, they
are working class dogs
who use their excellent
swimming skills to pull.
in fishing nets and rescue
people in the water. They'll
even jump from a helicopter
to help someone in need!
Boto is a certified, registered,
therapy dog with Therapy
Dogs International, which
means he is up-to-date
on all his vet records and
insured.

PROGRAMS
Children ages three
and up, wear a non-scary
costume and come to Story
Time Wednesday at 10:15
a.m. for Halloween stories
and songs and a parade
through the library! Next
Wednesday, Nov. 7, join us
for Native American stories,
songs, and activities.

Picture Book Club
will venture under the
sea on Monday, Nov. 5.
Sign-in begins at 4 p.m.
and the stories, poems
and songs about sharks,
octopi, whales, and other
wondrous creatures of the
deep begin at 4:15 p.m.
for children ages 6 and up.
Create a fish to take home!

TRIVIA FOR KIDS
AND TEENS
What physical quality
of the Newfoundland
dog makes it such a good
swimmer? Tell the correct
answer to one of us at the
circulation desk for a prize.

ON THIS DAY IN
HISTORY
In 1517, Martin Luther
posted his 95 Theses on
the door of the Wittenberg
Palace church, marking
the start of the Protestant
Reformation in Germany.

Brian Hughes I Crestview News Bulletin
The Baker Block Museum is, in a way, the north county's attic with a profusion of
fascinating artifacts and photos of our area's rich culture and heritage.


Brian Hughes
Crestview News Bulletin
BAKER Nowhere in
the north end of Okaloosa
County is our region's
heritage so neatly gathered in
one convenient place than the
Baker Block Museum.
And there's no better time
to explore it than during
this Saturday's third annual
Baker Heritage Days and
Folk Festival.
From 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.,
the museum grounds at the
crossroads of State Roads 4
and 189 come alive in a buzz
of period activity.
In the Pioneer Village
adjacent to the museum,
stroll among historic
buildings rescued or donated
from throughout the county,
ranging from a log cabin to a
family outhouse donated by
Dr. Mabel Jean Morrison of
Laurel Hill.
Rub shoulders with
historic re-enactors as they
recreate a Muskogee Indian
trading camp and a Civil War
soldiers' bivouac.
Working from a block of
stone, flint knappers will
demonstrate how Indians
made arrowheads through
the centuries.
See how great-grandma
fixed supper as open hearth
cooking is demonstrated
in the log cabin. Craftsmen
will demonstrate shingle
making, beekeeping, pottery,


A combination of
grandma's attic and a trip
through local history and
culture, the museum makes
no pretenses at being an arm
of the Smithsonian.
Visitors glean a rich,
unfiltered insight into our
area's storied past as they get
up dose and personal with
artifacts including late 19th-
century cooking implements,
schoolhouse equipment,
Civil War artifacts, fashions
and furnishings of the past,
photography, and tools
and equipment from area
industries.
Amateur historians will
find the North Okaloosa
County Historical
Association's archives and
genealogy library in the
adjacent room a treasure


trove of resources. Staff from
the association will -be on
hand all day to help with
research and to offer tours of
the museum.
There's no admission for
the Heritage Days and Folk
Festival, or to visit the Baker
Block Museum.
Fresh, homemade cane
syrup and cane stalks
donated by the James Griffith
family, food, beverages, and
period arts and crafts will be
available for purchase.

p.m. Free admission. 1307

But beyond all those
cliche Big Easy activities,
the city boasts one of
America's most vibrant
theater scenes outside of
Broadway. And it's one of
New Orleans' best-kept
secrets, even from locals.
The city's theater
