Ann Spann / Crestview News Bulletin
This bus was carrying Walker Elementary third-graders to a field trip in Pensacola when it was involved in an accident
on Interstate 10. Fourteen students and four chaperones were taken to the hospital as a precaution. A teacher and
the bus driver were lifeflighted to hospitals with serious injuries



'I'm deeply thankful'


Officials
discuss
Walker bus
accident

.Crestview News Bulletin

The Walker'
principal's story
One day after the
Wednesday accident
involving an Okaloosa
County school bus trans-
porting a class of Walker
Elementary School third
graders to a field trip,
Walker Principal Jeanine
Kirkland said the school
and community "have so
-much to be thankful for."
- "The school district
:really rallied to support
our school, parents and
children," Kirkland said.
"From (Superintendent
of Schools) Dr. Alexis-
Tibbetts to our local
principals and support
personnel, everyone was
great."
A school district psy-
chologist was at the
school soon after the ac-


cident to speak with stu-
dents and was also there
on Thursday, according
to Kirkland.
"I am deeply thank-
ful for our children being
safe and well. I'm also
thankful for the good Sa-
maritans on the road and
emergency personnel
responding so quickly,"
she said.
"Our parents have
been wonderful and have
all looked for the good in
this," Kirkland added.
Kirkland confirmed
the students were wear-
ing their seat belts on the
bus.
"Absolutely," she said.
"That's why we have so


much to be thankful for
this morning."

The board
member's story
District 4 school board
representative Cathy
Thigpen arrived at Walk-,
er Elementary School at
10:20 Wednesday morn-
ing shortly after hearing
about the accident.
She stayed until 3.30
p.m.
"I am much better
today," Thigpen said.
"When I first walked in
Walker School yesterday,
I had that sick feeling of
'what next?'
"'It went so smoothly,


I was just blown away,"
Thigpen continued. "You
never know in crisis how
people are going to re-
spond, but yesterday at
3:30, there were a lot of
tears and sighs of, 'We
did it.' When that last
kid goes home you just
sigh."
Nine of the children
in Lynda Woods' class
- one of the classes on
the trip - were back in
school Thursday.
Thigpen said the
school district immedi-
ately -dispatched coun-
selors to Walker to talk to
children and teachers.

Doolittle event


stirs memories for


Crestview resident


Ann Spann
Crestview News Bulletin

The homecoming event
scheduled for Jimmy
Doolittle's Raiders in Fort
Walton Beach today has
stirred many memories for
Crestview resident Ernes-
tine Barker.
Barker, then Ernestine
Mapoles, was a 17-year-old
supply clerk at Eglin Field
in early 1942. She never
imagined the historical
importance of the events
she was witnessing as she
pecked out work orders on
an old manual typewriter.
"We knew that it was go-
ing to be big and with all
the tech order changes that
it was something special,
but it was never discussed,"
Barker explained.
The previous year had
been a memorable one for
young Mapoles. She gradu-
ated from Crestview High
School in the class of 1941;
She had completed courses
at a Tallahassee business
college by the fall. Around
the same time she met a

after the Japanese bombed

later, she celebrated her

Backup plan for well replacement OK'd --,..--. -
P. . �..


Kyle Wright
Crestview News Bulletin

The City of Crestview
Public Works Department
has a plan - and a back-
up plan - for the replace-
ment of Well #1.
The Crestview City
Council during its meet-
ing Tuesday night unani-
mously approved a site at
the Old Spanish Trail Park
as a backup site for the
emergency replacement of
the well.
Public Services Director
Wayne Steele said the proj-
ect engineer has concerns
that the current Well #1
near the downtown area
could be ruled as too close
to an existing Gulf Power
substation.
"The engineer asked for
an alternative site in case
the (current) site is not ap-
proved," Steele said. "If
we can't do it where Well
#1 is, this would be the al-
ternate choice."

Crestview officials thank helping hound's handlers


Brian Hughes
Crestview News Bulletin

Crestview Police Chief Brian
Mitchell and Mayor David Cadle
took some time Wednesday to thank
members of the Okaloosa Correction-
al Institute security force whose K-9
comrade Pee Wee was instrumental
in capturing an escaped fugitive.
A multi-agency manhunt earlier
this month ultimately led officers to
Taurean Xavier Proch, 25, who was
hiding in a swamp off Old Antioch
Road. Pee Wee was instrumental in
finding the defendant.
"It was because of them we were
able to locate the guy," Crestview Po-
lice Lt. Joseph Floyd said.
"That's what makes law enforce-
ment work; when they all come to-
gether for a common cause," Cadle
said.

Forgiveness is the remedy for one'


Forgiveness is the rem-
edy for guilt. A sense of
guilt about one's sinful
nature is often a factor in a
person's coming to Christ.
In 1974, I accepted Jesus
as my Lord and Savior.
I came to Him simply
because of the guilt that I
felt. Little did I know He
would immediately for-
give every sin I had ever
committed.
In Psalms 103:12, Da-
vid wrote, "As far as the
east is from the west, so
far hath He removed our
transgressions from us."
(KJV)
That was very hard for
me to believe since I knew
the sinful person that I
was. After 34 years, I still
struggle with sin trying to
overcome my faith, and
yes, I still deal with guilt.
That does not change the

fact God has forgiven ev-
ery sin I have committed
by my simply asking Him
to forgive me.
Full provision for
forgiveness already has
been provided by God for
all persons prior to their
asking for forgiveness or
accepting it. Jesus died on
the cross as the perfect,
complete and only sacri-
fice necessary to free every
person from sin.
You don't need to plead
for forgiveness or try to
impress God that you are
worthy to be forgiven.
The Bible says our

"righteousness is as filthy
rags,"'so we cannot count
on our worthiness. You
need to accept and receive
what God has provided
through His Son, Jesus
Christ. When you ask
for forgiveness, God
freely and unconditionally
grants it.
I John 1:9 says, "If we
confess our sins, He is
faithful and just to forgive
us our sins, and to cleanse
us from all unrighteous-
ness." (KJV)
Furthermore, you can't
do anything that will im-
press God to forgive you
on the basis of your mer-
its. His blameless, sinless,
perfect Son has already
died on your behalf. What
more could you possibly
do? You don't need to die
on a cross to be forgiven.
Even if you did so, you
aren't a perfect, sinless
person. Nothing short of
Christ's death is accept-
able to God as a reason
for you to be forgiven. No
amount of works or chari-
table deeds will qualify
you for God's free offer of

column in the June 7 edition of the Crestview News Bulletin.


salvation through Christ
Jesus. Ephesians 2:8-9
says, "For by grace are ye
saved through faith; and
that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God. Not
of works, lest any man
should boast."
God's forgiveness is
not automatic. You must
accept or receive it. You
do this by coming to your
heavenly Father in humili-
ty, admitting you are a sin-
ner in need of forgiveness,
acknowledging that Jesus
Christ died on the cross on
your behalf and believing
what He did provides the
means of forgiveness for
you. Some people call it an
act of confession.
You might question
why you need to do this if
God has already forgiven
you. The purpose is that
you might know with


certainty in your heart
you are forgiven and then
experience the cleansing
power of forgiveness.
In Romans 10:9-10 Paul
wrote, "That if thou shalt
confess with thy mouth
the Lord Jesus, and shalt
believe in thine heart that
God hath raised Him from
the dead, thou shalt be
saved. For with the heart
man believeth unto righ-
teousness; and with the
mouth confession is made
unto salvation."(KJV)
The aftermath of receiv-
ing God's forgiveness is
to repent (which literally
means to change your
mind) for your past sins
and to make a new choice
to follow in the footsteps
of Jesus and live according
to God's commandments
and statues. The ability
to follow through on this


s guilt

new commitment to right
living before the Father
comes from the indwell-
ing power and presence
of the Holy Spirit, who
joins with your spirit at
the time you receive God's
forgiveness and accept
Jesus Christ as your Savior
and Lord.
Thus, God forgives you
from past sins, and He en-
ables you not to sin in the
future.
If you don't know
Christ as Savior, let me
encourage you to get rid
of guilt by being forgiven.
If you are a Christian, stop
letting the devil tell you
that you are not forgiven.
Remember, it is not about
what you and I have done.
It is all in Jesus Christ
' dying for the sins of the
whole world.

head is the pastor of Victori-

Special thanks for a special day


Doug and.I appreciate the honor
we received from Laurel Hill's Mayor
Dunn, council members and speakers
May 17. Beautiful friends and family
joining us made the reception very
special. We are so thankful for this
city, the people and all the good things
we enjoy in God's country. It has been
an honor to work for the betterment
of our city whenever and wherever
we could over the years.
Ginger Rogers Snyder and
daughter Jordan surprised us at noon
before the reception.
* Actually, I plotted with Ginger on
the surprise! Sons John Rogers of
Fort Walton Beach and Lavonne Rog-
ers of Laurel Hill also attended, as
did Ray (my brother) and Mary Beth
Howell from Pensacola. Karoline
Howell enjoyed seeing John Rogers,
recalling the days he was a passenger
in her school bus.
We appreciated the warm wel-
come by Council Chair Vizell Rob-
bins and prayer offered by Pastor
McVay of First Baptist Church.
Ivy Leaf Florist and Ivy Leaf Tea
Parlor in Crestview owner Elaine
Broom worked her magic with beau-
tiful floral table arrangements and a
huge rose bouquet on the buffet table,
ours to take home! The table florals
were given as gifts to special people
attending. Elaine contributed refresh-
ments to the buffet table as well. The
huge white cake was beautiful and
delicious, served by Tracy Curenton,

spoke of Doug's time in the office of
Mayor and council terms for each of
us, church and friendship.
I might add that Shirley has writ-
ten a powerful book, A Still Small
Voice. Order by calling (850) 652-4516

com. Now in retirement, hopefully,
she is working on another book.
Mayor Dunn presented us with a
plaque of appreciation and markers
for the gazebo and the equipment
yard fence. The flag pole was donated
by a cousin, Gerry Rogers Bullard.
The stone foot marker was donated
by Doug's sister, Laura Nell Rogers
Harrison, in memory of their brother,
George Rogers.
City manager Tim Bolduc put
together a slide presentation with
beautiful music. We are blessed to
have multi-talented Tim on board as

the City Manager.
There were times when I had to
fight the tears back: when Shirley
Simmons brought back so many good
memories; when our friend Devona
Willis spoke from her heart; when
classmate (1945) Velma Haddock re-
called a song we sang in grade school.
Thanks to our city clerk, Barbara
Foley, and water clerk, Crista Shep-
heard, for their warm welcome and
making this day very special for us
and all the wonderful friends attend-
ing.
Our community is bursting at
the seams with new growth. The
older generation is passing on, and
tomorrow will bring a new day with
change. Caring and concern is also
passed down to the younger genera-
tion. That is what makes Laurel Hill a
friendly place to raise families, in ad-
dition to the school to attend, fishing
ponds and deer stands in the woods.
Most of all, the freedom to worship
God wherever we feel comfortable.
To God be the Glory for all he has
done for the community of Laurel
Hill!
Luke 2:52 "Jesus.grew in wisdom and
stature, and in favor with God and men"
(NIV).

DOOLITTLE continued from 1


job at Eglin Field during the
war or joining the military,"
Baker said.
Despite her qualifica-
tions, her age prevented
her from securing a good
paying job at the military
base.
"I applied to Eglin, but
wasn't getting anywhere,"
Barker said. "Finally, daddy
called Claude Pepper."
Pepper was a state sena-
tor and good friend of the
Mapoles family. Ernestine's
father, Bill Mapoles, had
served as a Walton County
state representative and in-
troduced the bill creating
Okaloosa County in 1915.
By early January 1942,
Ernestine received a call to
report for work. In those
days it was the way. of
things in West Florida.
Barker vividly recalls
how Doolittle's line chief,
a weathered tech sergeant

fo,'

, U " - " :* ,j -* .


named Steadman, came
to her desk each morning
with a small black book that,
contained the B-25 aircraft
numbers and the tech order
changes for each plane.
"I made out the work
orders and delivered them
to the departments where
the work was to be done,"
Barker explained.
Some of the changes she
recalls on the B-25's include
the removal of the de-icers,
adding extra gas tanks and
replacing gun turrets with
what she remembers as
pieces of dowel.
She watched from the
sub depot, one of only two
hangers on the entire base,
as Doolittle took his men
out on the airplane parking
ramp.
"He stood, and the men
were in a half-circle around
him," Barker remembers.
"I saw them out there more

than once."
The rumor that the
planes were headed to the
west coast was the only
other thing known about
Doolittle's mission until
news of the bombing raid
on Japan hit the airwaves.
"We knew exactly what
had happened, that it was
B-25's from Eglin," Barker
said.
The war would, shape
the -lives of many young
men and women across
America. Ernestine was no
exception. She married the
young GI from the USO
and traveled the :world
throughout his military ca-
reer.
William Barker entered
the Army Air Corp Cadet
Program, where he .was
commissioned a second
lieutenant. He flew many
combat missions in his be-
loved P-38 in the European


theater, including the Battle
of the Bulge. He was pres-
ent at the liberation of three
concentration camps, a fact
of which he never spoke.
The couple raised four
children and later returned
to Crestview after Bill Bark-
er's retirement at the rank
of major..
Ernestine Barker has
enjoyed many books and
historical accounts about
Doolittle's men during the
66 years since the famous
raid on Tokyo. She often
wondered what became of
the old line chief who teased
her.. about a. date so long
ago, but has never seen any
reference to him. Tech. Sgt.
Steadman's is a story that
has remained a mystery.

Miles goes super big


By BILL GAMBLING
sports @srpressgazette.con
Almost everyone has a mascot,
There is one for every major league team and now
motorsports is joining the crowd with Lowe's Motor
Speedway's Lugnut, but nothing can compare to Miles the
Monster.
Born in 2000 as the mascot and trophy handed out at
Dover International Speedway, Miles is now going to be for-
ever a part of the Monster Mile he calls home.
Miles is comparable to other unique pieces of hardware
a driver could take home following a win on the Sprint Cup
Circuit such as the grandfather clock from Martinsville, the
pair of Colt .45 at Texas, and the championship belt you are
awarded at Las Vegas.
On May 14, Dover took Miles one step further with a five-
story-tall statue with glowing red eye, which happens to be one
of the tallest fiberglass structures in the world.
The base of this monument will feature special driver ded-
ications, including a listing of Dover winners by race and
series.
Richard Petty and Bobby Allison, each of whom racked up
seven career wins at Dover, will be the first drivers honored.
Allison will be honored this weekend and ironically there
is enough room on the base to list winners at the track until the
year 2035

"This year has been kind of up and down. Hopefully we
can change that at Dover," said Truex. "We've had some
really great racecars just about every week. Like last week,
seems like something always happens to take a good finish
away from us.
"So hopefully we'll be able to go to Dover, turn that
around, get our season back on track, and climb back into
that top 12:"
Last year it was all Dale Jr. and the turmoil between him
and his stepmother Teresa.
What is it like at DEI with out Little'E?
"Not much has changed around DEI, to be honest with
you," said Truex. "It's been different without Dale Jr., but
things have really not changed that much.
"I don't feel like I took over his spot or I'm in any special
position now. I go there afid do by job the best I can do every
week. That's the same thing I've always done."
While Dale Jr., is no longer there, NASCAR veteran
Mark Martin has become a positive influce on the second gen-
eration racer from New Jersey.
"I've really enjoyed working with Mark so far," said
Truex. "The way he approaches things is a little bit different
than what I'm used to as far as working on his racecars
throughout practice; you know, the way he looks for things for
the race, not so much worries about speed or anything like
that

WALKER continued from 1


"Wherever we thought
they were needed, they
were there," she said.
Thigpen said the
school's emergency plan
worked exactly as expect-
ed. The telephone alert
system was activated and
messages were sent to
parents. An assembly was
held to brief the children
still at the school,, who
were aware by the buzz of
media and official activity
that something was up.
"The way things
worked, it was just a good
feeling," Thigpen said.
"You have a crisis plan
and to know that it went
that smooth is a relief."
Thigpen also had praise
for parents who offered
their services.
"We had one parent
who came in who wasn't
even affiliated with Walk-
er School," Thigpen said.
"He wanted to know if
any parents needed a ride
to go see their children.
"It was one of those sit-
uations in which you just
see a community swarm
to help."
Escambia County and
Santa Rosa school person-
nel also came "to offer to
do anything they could
do. And we would do
the same," Thigpen said.
"When it's kids, things
change."

The resource
officer's story
Deputy Trey Ellison
is the resource officer
at Walker Elementary
School.
"I thought everybody,
including the parents and
community and staff,
worked remarkably well
together," Ellison said.
"Everything went smooth
and efficient."

WALKER BUS ACCIDENT
What happened?
A bus carrying Walker Elementary third-grade students to a
field trip in Pensacola was involved in a rollover Wednesday.
Fourteen students and two chaperones on board the
bus were taken to area hospitals as a precaution. Teacher
Lynda Woods, 45, and the bus driver, Beth White, 60, were
both transported by helicopter with serious but not life-
threatening injuries, according to Okaloosa County Schools
Superintendent Dr. Alexis Tibbetts.
Tibbetts said all the children and chaperones, with the
exception of a handful at Sacred Heart, were released by mid-
day Wednesday. The others were waiting on X-rays.
When did it happen?
At approximately 9:30 a.m. Wednesday
Where did it happen?
Near mile marker 30 on Interstate 10 in Santa Rosa County

concern was the welfare of
" the children and the adults
involved."

The story
from other schools
Southside- Elementary
School Principal Donna
Holloway and Jacqueline
Craig, her counterpart at
Northwood Elementary,
both immediately report-
ed to Walker to relieve
Kirkland.
"That's just what we
do in the north end," Hol-
loway said. "That's just
what we do in the elemen-
tary schools in Crestview.
One for all and all for one.
We're each other's sup-
porters."
Craig arrived at Walker
shortly after Holloway.
"We certainly went
over there," Craig said.
"We're all one big happy
family around here."
* When she arrived,
Walker's emergency plan
was already being fully
implemented.
"Everyone was doing
their delegated duties,"


Craig said. "Several were
contacting the parents
who had children who
were hurt. Walker's fac-
ulty and staff did an excel-
lent job."
Craig became the liai-
son with parents of the
students who had been on
the bus.
"We certainly wanted
to stop rumor mill and
send out the factual infor-
mation," she said, rioting
there were several field
trips in progress from var-
ious Walker classes.

DAZZLING DEAN



CHS graduate helps LSU win SEC title


Randy Dickson
Crestview News Bulletin

Blake Dean showed the South-
eastern Conference and the rest
of the country what people in
Okaloosa County have known
for years - he's one mighty good
baseball player.
The former Crestview Bulldog
went 7-for-16 with three home
runs and nine runs batted in last
weekend as Louisiana State ex-
tended its winning streak to 20
games and won the SEC baseball
tournament.
The sophomore outfielder/des-
ignated hitter was named the Most
Valuable Player of the tournament
and was named the Collegiate
Baseball Magazine's National
Player of the Week.
Dean handled the honors with
the same hometown humility he
has shown for years.
"Coming from Crestview with
it being such a small town and
coming to LSU, I never had expec-
tations like that," he said. "When I
went into the tournament I started
hitting the ball well and had some
RBIs that put us in front.
"But to win the MVP and then
a few days later find out I was na-
tional Player of the Week is pretty
amazing, to think that for one week
I was considered the best college
player in the nation. It shows all
the hard work paid off."
Dean's impressive series start-
ed with a game-winning walk-off
homer in the 10th inning against
South Carolina in the tournament
opener.
He hit a grand slam and drove
in six runs as the Tigers came from
behind to beat Alabama in the sec-
ond game of the tournament. He
capped stellar weekend with a
two-run blast against Ole Miss in
the championship game.
Crestview baseball coach Tim
Gillis, who watched, his former
star throughout the weekend on
television, noted Dean might be
the first player from Northwest
Florida to win the MVP in the SEC
tournament
"I think the whole community
is proud - it should be," he said.
"It's a great accomplishment for
Blake and a great accomplishment
for LSU winning the SEC.
"It's kind of a dream, and I
know it is for Blake."
The SEC tournament was just a
snapshot of Dean's season.
He leads the No. 2-ranked Ti-
gers in hitting with a .346 average,
runs scored with 52, hits with 80,
runs batted in with 57 and total
bases with 145. He's also tied for
the team lead with 13 doubles.
His 16 home runs are second on
the team, as is his .628 slugging
percentage and .425 on base per-
centage.
Dean led the Tigers in hitting
with a .316 average as a freshman.

Former Crestview star Blake Dean helped power Louisiana State to the SEC
baseball championship last week. Dean was named the Most Valuable Player
of the SEC baseball tournament and the National Player of the Week by
Collegiate Baseball Magazine.


NCAA TOURNAMENT
Baton Rouge Regional
The Baton Rouge Regional is double-
elimination format and includes LSU,
Southern Mississippi, New Orleans
3rd *...a-, S-,ouihern. The e'-rit cor,-
tirLues tda',, and Sunday if neces-
sary. LSU is the No. 7 rational see-1


He got off to what he considers a
slow start this year before catching
fire late in the season. He attributes
his strong showing to being more
experienced and having quality
teammates around him.
"I think it's a combination of
everything - having more expe-
rience and knowing what to ex-'
pect," he said. "Early in the year
I wasn't seeing the ball well and I
was putting myself in a hole, get-
ting behind in the count and put-
ting pressure on myself.
"Now a lot of guys on the team
are hitting well, and if I'm'not hit-
ting I don't feel pressured."
Winning the SEC tournament
was especially gratifying for Dean
because it helped put the proud


Tiger program back on top after
struggling the last few years. It
also was the first title of his career.
"It's something I've always
wanted, to get a (championship)
ring," he said. "Last year was bad
and we didn't make the SEC tour-
nament, but this year we came
back and put LSU back on the
map."
There is still work to be done as
*the Tigers try to earn a trip to the
College World Series.
The Tigers hosted Texas South-
ern on Friday as-they opened play
in an NCAA regional at Baton
Rouge that included New Orleans
and Southern Mississippi.
Dean knows the Tigers will be
ready.
"SEC baseball is the best in the
country," he said. "We have nine
teams in the NCAA tournament
(more than any other conference),.
and that proves we've seen the
best.
"It gives us the confidence we
need to win."
