Superintendent


analyzes grades


Brian Hughes
Crestview News Bulletin
The release of Florida
state school grades was
cause for celebration
throughout the north end
of Okaloosa County. Eight
of 10 public schools in the
area received A's, with two
of them moving up from a
B grade last year.
In the two elementary
schools that saw a decline,
aggressive steps already
have been taken to ad-
dress the issues that led to
the reduction in grade.
Superintendent of
Schools Dr. Alexis Tib-


betts, was proud about the
overall outcome.
"I'm still talking about
Baker and Laurel Hill com-
ing up so much," Tibbetts
said. "The fact that they're
A's and they're small rural
schools is amazing."
Crestview High School
rose from a B to an A for
the first time since the 2005
report card, the school's
only other break in a B
grade since 2001.
"I attribute a lot of this
to (Principal) Ed Cole-
man," Tibbetts said. "The
teachers at the school did

Celebrating a neighbor's milestones '"-'


Our neighbor Bill Van-
Name celebrated several
major events this month.
July 8 was his natural
birthday. July 12 was the
day he celebrated the
birthday of his "new"
life. Bill was flown from
Pensacola to Gainesville
on July 12, 1999, for a
successful double-lung
transplant at Shands hos-
pital.
Through the years
he has endured times of
fighting rejection, weary
trips to Shands, always
trusting the Lord for his
healing. I am always
thrilled to see him, re-
membering his life before
the transplant. He is an
encourager with warm
words and always a smile
to those with problems.
Neighbors admire the
strength and courage of
this inspiring couple.
Bill and Lee recently
celebrated their 36th wed-
ding anniversary. Bill and
Lee enjoy their beautiful
granddaughter, Tara, who
has lived with them for
the past several years.
Happy birthday, new life,
and happy anniversary to
a precious couple.
My niece and her
daughter, Laurie and Al-
lison Lazear from Virgin-
ia, and her parents, Ray
and Mary Beth Howell


UPON
THE
HILL


Estelle Rogers
from Pensacola, visited
with us last week.
We picked blueberries,
and they left with several
bags of bursting with
sweetness blueberries,
with thoughts of pies in
their future. Laurie later
e-mailed the recipe she
used for pies, made with
sour cream and a topping
of crumbled Ritz crackers.
Things are happen-
ing around the Hobo
Video store. Dirt is being
hauled in for construction
prep, and that is a good
thing in Laurel Hill.
Our berry crop is
producing beautifully. I
call it my therapy session
as" I fill buckets with the
luscious fruit. The birds
are singing away over
their daily dessert. And
now the figs are ripe! I
have a cooking sugared
down overnight for fig
preserves tomorrow.
Cassie Rogers is com-
ing over to enjoy special
(very ripe) fresh figs. If
that isn't enough work,

A fun thought: A
seasoned woman is spicy.
She has been marinated
in life experience. She is
at the peak of her influ-
ence and power. She is
committed to living fully
and passionately in the
second half of life, despite
failures and false starts.
How old is a seasoned
woman?
As Vera told Auntie
Marne, "Somewhere be-
tween 45 and death."
Older is bolder a
seasoned woman is more
activist, more managerial
and political.

A merry heart maketh a
cheerful countenance: but by
sorrow of the heart the spirit
is broken. Proverbs
15:13

skills. They assist others

professional responders are
not immediately available

friends here a letter:

Dear friends,
Madeleine and I wish
you a very good national
holiday in this day of July

We shared the holiday.

tended a pakty of the day
in Paris at the embassy of
the United States, where we
were invited by the ambas-

ebrate the 252nd birthday
of your independence.
We had a very good day,
and we met those of high

dors, senators, deputies, etc.
We will hold very dear


memories of the occasion.
We were invited as presi-
dent of the Sister City Com-
mittee, because twinning
[of our cities] is the exten-
sion of French-American
friendship (it was the topic
of the day). Enclosed are
three photographs, among
which are one of Ambas-

We wish you a very
good day.
See you soon,

SATURDAY, JULY 12, 2008 LOCAL


REPORT continued from 1


GRADES continued from 1


year and are currently
making preparations to
ensure that 2008-2009
upholds the Baker tradi-
tion." -,

Success stories
Shipp first mentioned
Baker School's 'A' grade
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Education for the
fifth time in six years.
:."Maintaining our "A"
school status was a great
accomplishment," he
said. "However, our stu-
dents and staff do many,
many other things that
make us proud."
Baker's seniors gar-
nished more that $600,000
in scholarship money this
year.
Two secondary Od-
yssey of the Mind teams
participated in state com-
petition in Orlando
Three senior Life
Smarts (economics)
teams placed in the top
10 in state competition in
Tampa.
The IDEAS (engi-
needring) team again won
first place in regional
competition held in Fort
Walton Beach.
.* Both of the school's
CHELCO student repre-
sentatives won the op--
portunity to go on the
Washington D.C. tour.
The ,Baker ..Band,
Chorus and JROTC dis-
tinguished themselves
throughout the year.
The school's televi-
sion production program I
(WGTV) walked away
with the majority of the
broadcast awards at this
year's Emerald Coast
Public Relations Organi-
zation awards ceremony,
including top broadcast
student of the year. The
yearbook staff also re-
ceived recognition at the
ceremony.
Seven of the school's
10 varsity athletics pro-
grams were represented
in the FHSAA playoffs as
teams or individuals. The
track and boys weight-
lifting programs took
representatives to the
state finals. Girls basket-
ball and volleyball coach
Kathy Combest took both
of her teams to the play-
offs whNle she dealt with
a serious personal illness.
The track program had
more than 100 participat-
ing members, took 12 par-
ticipants to state and was
able to host home track
meets for the first time in
more than'20 years.

Responding to
adversity
Baker's 2007-08 school
year started soon after
the death of a popular
student and athlete.
Shipp said the tragedy
"rallied more school and
community support than


I have ever witnessed."
Two scholarships were
established in the stu-
dent's name.
The Gator family also
endured the loss of sever-
al parents of students, as
well as some serious ill-
nesses in the school com-
munity.
"All of those situations
stirred deep emotions,
but many served as in-
spiration for our students
and staff," Shipp said.
"Baker School has one of
the most nurturing staffs
and student bodies I have
ever been associated
with, and they rise to the
call when someone is in
need."
He also noted a teach-
er's determination and
perseverance as she bat-
tled cancer (which is now
in remission), and the re-
silience of a senior who
lost his mother, but still
graduated with his class.

Money matters
Shipp said the school
communicated the effects
of the tightening budget
to all parents via news-
letter. For instance, most
in the Baker community
should know- the school
will not offer driver's ed-

ucation next year.
He said budget con-
cerns are a regular issue
for most K-12 schools.
"My philosophy has
always been to take what
you have and make the
best of it," he said.

Continuing
improvements I
The school isn't resting
on its laurels after earn-
ing another 'A' grade.
New course offerings
include information tech-
nology and Spanish for
eighth-graders, expand-
ed honors sections at the
middle school level and
a leadership class for ju-
niors and seniors.
Baker also will imple-
ment a Project Child pro-
gram to assist students
with academic needs in
grades 3-5.
"We have a lot of areas
where we can continue
to improve academically,
and we must not allow
ourselves to be compla-
cent," Shipp said. "We
still want our students to
be able to compete with
students anywhere. We
especially need to provide
more assistance to specif-
ic groups of students who
are not performing as


well. We will be putting
additional emphasis this
coming year on students
with special needs."

Continuing
improvements II
Students and visitors
will notice several physi-
cal improvements to the
school's facilities come
August.
Parking areas are be-
ing revamped.
The school is be-
ing completely rewired,
a $2-plus million project
that will greatly increase
Baker's technological ca-
pabilities.
Efforts continue
to improve elementary
physical education equip-
ment and facilities.

Summer message
"First of all I want to
congratulate students
and teachers on achiev-
ing 'A' school status for
2007-2008," Shipp said. "I
also encourage students
to have fun but stay safe.
We have already had a
serious ATV injury in the
Baker community this
summer. I also hope our
teachers are resting and
getting recharged for the
2008-2009 school year."


a lot of training and staff de-
velopment. Crestview has
come a long way.
"Laurel Hill did the
same thing," she said, re-
ferring to the other local
school that improved from
a B to an A.
Tibbetts is a strong pro-
ponent of teacher and staff
development and giving
teachers the opportunity to
continue to hone their pro-
fession.
Both schools, Tibbetts
said, "concentrated on
training their teachers with
certain skills and strategies
that are research based. We
call them high yield strate-
gies. It paid off. It showed!
"People can say what
they want about profes-
sional development, but
when you have an early re-
lease to give teachers time
to learn and teach across
*the disciplines, it pays off."
Northwood and Bob
Sikes elementary, schools,
were the only schools in the
area to post lower grades.
Northwood dropped to a
C from last year's A. Bob
Sikes dropped down to a B
from an A in 2007.
"\Ve looked haid at
that,. Tibbetts said "We are
going into those schools;
and we will be concentrat-
ing on getting those scores

up where we want them.
"We are certainly not
making excuses. We're go-
ing to go in there and fix
the issue. We started for-
mulating a plan as soon as
we got the scores in. Even
before school grades came
out, we were on this."
School grades can drop
for any number of reasons,
Tibbetts said. In the case of
Northwood and Bob Sikes,
poor teaching is most defi-
nitely not one.
A typical factor, which
affected Northwood and
Bob Sikes, is an increase
in .students with special
needs.
"Okaloosa County is
increasing the number of
kids who don't speak Eng-
lish at home or are special-
ed or come from low socio-
economic homes," Tibbetts
said.
Tibbetts assured parents
that both schools are, over-
all, well-performing learn-
ing environments for their
children.
"These schools are qual-
ity'schools," Tibbetts said.
Tibbetts said the new-
est grades confirm local
educators aie on the right
coLIure.

Trash talk prominent at Laurel Hill meeting


I CRES TVIrwAGENDA i


Kyle Wright
Crestview News Bulletin

LAUREL HILL The
Laurel Hill City Council
engaged in some seri-
ous trash talk Thursday
night.
The council passed by
a 4-0 vote a second and
final reading of an ordi-
nance intended to bring
all residences within city
limits into the city's con-
tracted garbage system.
Gary Collinsworth was
unable to attend.
"The goal here is to
make sure everyone pays
their fair share," city man-
ager Tim Bolduc said.
Bolduc has said more
than 30 residences (some
of them vacant) current-
ly do not pay for gar-


bage service, resulting
in higher rates for other
citizens.
All residences within
city limits will receive a
new garbage can as part
of the ordinance. The new
cans should be available
by Aug. 1.
The council heard con-
cerns from a resident who
does not live in Laurel
Hill during some parts of
the year and wondered if
he would be required to
pay garbage fees during
those times. The resident
also described other ser-
vices he received from
the city as inconsistent
because of the location
of his home on a dead-
end street and worried
his garbage would not be
picked up.

Bolduc said residents
who leave the area for an
extended time can have
their garbage service
turned off if they give suf-
ficient notice. He also said
the resident should ex-
pect to have his garbage
picked up, regardless of
the location of his home.
City staff indicated it
will seek to renegotiate
some specifics in the gar-
bage contract when the
agreement comes up for
renewal.

Other business
The meeting began
with a. public hearing on
an ordinance to rezone
property near Hobo Video
on State Road 85 from ag-
ricultural to commercial.
Insite Contractors hopes to
build part of a new facility
on the property. The coun-
cil unanimously approved
a first reading of the ordi-
nance.
Mayor James Dunn
provided an update on
some of the small repair


and maintenance projects
around the city.
The council approved
a schedule of meetings to
discuss the city's 2008-09
budget.
The council will con-
duct a budget workshop
July 24, the same day as its
next regularly scheduled
meeting. Bolduc hopes
the city's 2008-09 millage
rate and budget can be
approved on Aug. 14 and
Aug. 28, the council's reg-.
ular meeting days.
The council approved
a motion to direct Dunn
to execute a contract for a
FERDAP Grant Agreement
of $33,903 for improve-
ments to Gene Clary Park.
Carolyn Williams of
Covenant Hospice pre-
sented information about

The March 25, 2008, Proposed EAR is being revised based on

interested parties the opportunity to comment on the revised
EAR and to express any concerns or recommendations
regarding the EAR or the Comprehensive Plan.
At the conclusion of the Public Hearing, the LPA will make
a recommendation to the City Council regarding adoption of
the EAR. The City Council will consider the EAR and the LPA
recommendation at a future Public Hearing.
All citizens and interested parties are invited and encouraged
to attend the Public Hearing and provide any comments or
suggestions they may have.

Holt actress wows 'em in 'Gypsy'


NFSC production is a rollicking funfest from curtain to curtain


Brian Hughes
Arts & Entertainment Editor

NICEVILLE Ever
since the legendary Ethel
Merman defined the role
of Madam Rose in the
original 1959 production of
"Gypsy," it's been a given
that the character will be
played by a belter.
The lively production
concluding this evening
at the newly monikered
Northwest Florida State
College is no exception.
Like The Merm, one
wonders if Holt's Darla
Briganti even needed a
microphone. If the power
went out, I'll bet her pow-
erful voice could've made
it'to the balcony and, I
might even venture to
guess, out to the parking
lot.
That, incidentally, is a
good thing.
Madam Rose is a pow-
erhouse of a character. The
whole play, like the life of
the real Rose Thompson
Hovick, revolves around
her. It thrives on her
strength. Cast a weak ac-
tress as Rose and the pro-
duction would wallow.
In casting Briganti, di-
rector Clifford D. Herron
was virtually assured of
a smash. That didn't stop
him from concocting a
complete and thoroughly
entertaining package. He
delivered a production that
had opening night audi-
ences leaping to their feet
in an enthusiastic ovation.
The local production of
"Gypsy" is visually and
audibly stunning. Set de-
signer Clint Mahle wove
a succession of handsome
sets that brought Rose, her
daughters June and Louise,
and their troupe of child
stars across the nation in
their quest for bigger and
grander vaudeville halls.
Working hand in hand
with Mahle was lighting
designer SeifAllah Cristo-
bal, whose lighting ranged
from exuberant to moody
and even playful.
As Louise (a.k.a. Gyp-
sy), Rachel Jones was de-
liciously cast. The talented
Jones handles Louise's
slow transition from the
awkward, untalented sec-

Mama Rose (Darla Briganti) belts out her feelings
and frustrations toward the end of "Gypsy" as she
sings "Rose's Turn." Top right, "Baby June (Alyssa Nielsen,
center) and her Newsboys" perform a number from
their Vaudeville show in "Gypsy."


ond fiddle who helps sup-
port her sister June to the
popular, confidant Gypsy
Rose Lee with subtlety
and skill.
As June, Savannah
Simerly is likewise well
cast. Pushed and prodded
throughout her life by their
overbearing mother, as de-
picted in the show, June in
real life eventually ran off
with one of the troupers.
Left with no leading
. daughter through whom
to live vicariously, Rose
turns to her less talented
daughter. This ultimately
leads to the creation of the
famous American ecdysi-
ast Gypsy Rose Lee.
(An ecdysiast, Gypsy
explains to her audience,
"is one who, or that which,
sheds her skin; in other
words, a stripper. But at
these prices, I'm no strip-
per. I'm an ecdysiast.")
Other standout per-


former included Bruce
Culpepper's Herbie, who
faithfully serves as Rose's
agent, all the while hop-
ing to eventually win her
hand.
Tim Norton, portray-
ing Tulsa, the member of
the troupe who eventually
marries and elopes with
June, skillfully displays his
footwork artistry in "All I
Need is the Girl."
This number also pro-
vides ample opportunity
to showcase the talent of
choreographers Joseph
A. Taylor and Kelly Mur-
dock.
Christa Whittaker as
the old pro stripper, Tessie
Tura, is a delightful hoot.
As Baby June, 10-year-
old Alyssa Nielsen was
squeaky fun.
Set changes proceeded
smoothly and rapidly
while the audience was
entertained by Gillian

Poole, the "placard girl."
Her increasingly amusing
schtick from scene to scene
became eagerly antici-
pated.
I must note one criti-
cism. Mahle's set design
gave the production a styl-
ish flair, but some of his
portrayals of incidental
characters grew increas-
ingly distracting, reaching
close to irritating with his
mincing stagehand Pastey.
Admittedly, Mahle's
shenanigans provoked
some laughter. Overall, the
production was so strong
and so enjoyable that I
suppose a little self-indul-
gence can be tolerated.
A pleasant, nay thor-
oughly enjoyable, evening
of classic American musical
theatre awaits at OWC's -
excuse me, NFSC's -sum-
mer production of "Gypsy."

BAKER As the calendar flipped from June to July
the sense of urgency increased for the Baker football
team.
The Gators are a month into their summer drills. The
start of fall practice is less than six weeks away.
The heat and humidity hanging over Doug
Griffith Memorial Stadium didn't seem to bother
the players, who were focused on getting better
for the upcoming season.
Senior Kellan Meeks barred en-
couragement for his teammates
to move in and out of the various
drills.
"You find the season goes as your
seniors go and the kind of leader-
ship they provide," Gator coach
Bob Kellogg said. "This is the best
group (of seniors) we've had lead- ..
ership-wise. Kids want to excel and
be successful.
"They are demanding it (of the other players).
I'm really pleased with those guys."
Kellogg certainly hasn't been unhappy with his pre-
vious senior classes.
This group, however, is his largest senior class since
he arrived at Baker in 2005. The seniors have experi-
enced the hard times with Kellogg. They now believe
it's their turn to shine.
"We've had good seniors before, but not many that
would step up," Kellogg said. "This group of seniors
played as ninth-graders and took a beating.
"They paid their dues and have been through the
worst. I really think they have a focus their senior year


r7


to make a statement."
Kellogg estimates an average of 40 to 50 players have
been at the workouts that run Monday-Thursday from
7:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m.
In addition to the daily workouts, 10 Gator play-
ers attended a camp at Birmingham Southern College.
The team also participated in a makeshift seven-on-
seven passing league with Crestview and
Navarre. Baker was scheduled to play
against the Bulldogs and Raiders, as well
as Tate and Flomaton (Ala.).
Later this month Kellogg will take most
of the team to a Fellowship of Christian
Athletes camp at Blue Springs, near Mari-
anna. The camp will serve as another op-
portunity to compete in a passing league
and to focus on the spiritual aspects of life.
"What's neat is the kids wanted to go so
bad because they had such a great time last
year," Kellogg said. "Most teams go to camp
because it builds unity. What's different about
S FCA camp is the spiritual element of it.
"When you touch that realm of it, it draws
them even closer. It's a deeper relationship than
at a regular football camp."
The Gators will continue to work right up until fall
practice officially starts Aug. 11.
"It will get a little more intense as you approach (the
start of practice)," Kellogg said. "Right now we are just
going out, and it's been a teaching thing.
"Now we are going to start picking up the pace and
conditioning as it gets closer to practice and the days get
hotter."

Gators gain strength after enduring growing pains


Randy Dickson
Crestview News Bulletin

It seems only yester-
day I was talking to Baker
coach Bob Kellogg before
his first season at the
helm of the Gator football
program.
Three years have
passed since then, and the
Gators have been through
the growing pains associ-
ated with rebuilding a
once-proud program.
Four state champion-
ship markers adorn the
fence at the north end of
Doug Griffith Memorial
Stadium. Those four titles
are half of the football
championships won
by schools in Okaloosa
County.
I wasn't around for
any of those champion-


ships, but in the last few
years I've come to un-
derstand the pride Baker
takes in a proud football
heritage.
Kellogg knew it
wouldn't be easy when
he took over the Gator
program. It's doubtful he
imagined how difficult it
would be that first year,
when Baker went 0-9
and scored just 48 points.
Things improved in 2006
when the Gators finished
the regular season 6-4
and made the playoffs.
The freshmen and
sophomores of 2005-06
are now seniors with four
full years in Kellogg's
system.
Last year was a transi-
tion year as the Gators
went to the spread of-
fense and moved junior


Cameron Domangue to
quarterback. The Gators
fell to 4-6, but Domangue
gained more than 2,500
yards in total offense and
had a hand in more than
25 touchdowns.
Domangue completed
just 39.8 percent of his
passes last year as a first-
year quarterback. He
looked much more com-
fortable throwing the ball
this spring.
If recent workouts are
any indication of what's
to come this season, op-
ponents will have their
hands full containing Do-
mangue whether he's
throwing or running with
the ball.
Domague will get
plenty of help from Billy
Whatmough, Kellan
Meeks, Marcus Jones


and others as the young
Gators of two and three
years ago have grown up
and are ready to make a
run at the District 1-2B
title.
Ask almost any Gator
player and they'll credit
the weight program of as-
sistant coach Brian Wag-
ner and the speed and
conditioning program of
assistant David Oglesby
for their success.
As an outsider who
constantly takes a close
inside look at the Gator
squad, I sense a group
of players that to a man
seems to understand that
there is no "I" in the word
"TEAM."
If they can keep that
focus, the Gators could be
on the verge of a special
season.

Stewart not

sick about

winless season

By BILL GAMBLING
sports@srpressgazette.com
So what is ailing Tony
Stewart?
Nothing except the flu that
forced him out of his No. 20
Home Depot Toyota during the
Coke Zero 400.
Despite being winless this
season, Stewart is looking
at the part of the Sprint Cup
Series Schedule most drivers
fear, except for him.
If Stewart continues the
trend he started when the
series expanded to 36 races
in 2001. Tony should earn at
least one win during the middle
12 races of the schedule.
One season during the
stretch of 12 races where the
tracks are their worst due to
the heat, Stewart posted five
wins.
"It's nor like we are not run-
ning well, because we are,"
said Stewart. "We've just had
some circumstances that
haven't gone our way. You'll
have that. We tend to be a
late-blooming team anyhow.
"We plan on doing the
same thing we do every week.
We're not changing our ap-
proach. Every week our goal is
to win the race, and that's not
going to change."
Stewart just missed out on
a win at New Hampshire when
many felt he had a dominant
car, but a pit stop and subse-
quent rain storm relegated the
Indiana native to 13th.
That goal of winning seems
to be a little easier for Stewart
during the middle part of the
season.
Statistically during the 90
mid-season races since 2001,
Stewart has 15 wins, 37 top
fives and 51 top 10's.
Ironically Stewart only has
17 wins in the other 248 races.
Another factor that could be
pushing the fiery Stewart is the
fact only two points separate
him and Kevin Harvick in the
standings.
Is there something personal
between the two friends?
Not really.
The key right now is that
Stewart is 12th in driver points,
which is the final spot to make
the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
Harvick would like to be in
that position as much as the
other 30 drivers who are out-
side the top 12 as he is.
Stewart is the defending
race champion and is one of
only two drivers to have multi-
ple wins on the D-shaped oval
in Joliet, III. The other driver
happens to be Harvick.
"We always seem to run
well at Chicago," said Stewart.
"We're cautiously optimistic
that we're going to run well."
If there is one thing Tony
might have going for him
this season is the fact Toyota
has been the hot car as they
lead the 2008 Manufacturers
Championship Points Standings
over Chevrolet 115-99.
Most of those points have
come thanks to Joe Gibbs
Racing and Stewart's team-
mate Kyle Busch, who posted
his sixth win of the year last
Saturday at Daytona.
With Busch winning one-
third of the races so far this
season he joins some very elite
company that could ultimately
lead the Las Vegas driver to his
first Sprint Cup title and fourth
for JGR.
In NASCAR Sprint Cup
history, 20 drivers have won
six or more races through the
first 18 events and 14 of them
have gone on to win the series
championship. Bill Elliott holds
the record for the most win
after 18 races, with nine. He
won two more the rest of the
season.
Jeff Gordon was the last
driver to accomplish this feat
back in 1997, and only three
drivers have accomplished
this since 1980. The late Dale
Earnhardt accomplished this
feat three times and won


championships in 1987, 1990,
and 1993.
