AMERICAN EDUCATION WEEK


National Education Association's 87th
annual American Education Week (AEW)
spotlights the importance of providing ev-
ery child in America with a quality pub-
lic education from kindergarten through
college, and the need for everyone to do
his or her part in making public schools
great.
The annual tagline, "Great Public


Schools: A Basic Right and Our Respon-
sibility," reflects the association's calling
upon America to provide students with
quality public schools so that they can
grow, prosper, and achieve in the 21st
century. This year, AEW will be celebrat-
ed Nov. 16-22.

Wayne Harris' phone' wouldn't
stop ringing.
The calls poured in as well-
wishers congratulated Harris on
winning the general election for
the Okaloosa County Commission
District I1 seat. The list of callers
included several of the current
county commissioners and U.S.
Rep. Jeff Miller.
Harris, who will take office
Monday before the next county
commission meeting, took a break
from his busy schedule to talk
with News Bulletin Editor Kyle
Wright.
Harris discussed the cam-
paign, his priorities as a county
commissioner, his future plans
as the Executive Director of the
Crestview Area Chamber of Com-
merce and his wish to see his
campaign signs disappear!
Kyle Wright: Let's start with
the election itself. I think most
people expected you to win, but
what were your thoughts as the
returns came in?
Wayne Harris: A lot of people
said 'you've got it in the bag.' I
never accepted that because any-
thing could have happened. A lot
of people are upset with a lot of
different political functions, and
they could have shown me the
same thing they showed a lot of


Myfirst priority is to learn the ropes.
I've had a number ofpeople from the county
call me and try to organize what
I've got to do and I appreciate that.
I'm going to ask a lot of questions.

Republican candidates throughout
the United States, that hey, we
want a change. So I wasn't assured
of anything. I felt confident but not
overconfident.
It felt real good (when the final
totals came in). I'll be honest with
you. I worked hard. I walked more
than 5,000 homes and took every
opportunity to be on any radio
show or any TV show I could be on.
The downside of being in a cam-
paign is you've got to be up all of
the time. I don't see how the presi-
dential candidates did it. It wears
you out. So it was the culmination
of a lot of hard work.
You see that stack there? (Har-
ris pointed to a manilla folder
several inches thick with paper-
work). Those are all the places I
walked. That's a reminder for me.
And this wasn't done by myself.
There was a whole group of people
who really helped me. Hundreds of
people went around a put out signs
for me.


And that reminds me. I do not
like signs. Those political signs you
put out? I hate them. But when
your competitors do it, you have
to. My competitor for the general
election didn't do them, but I had
them and I wasn't going to waste.
them. I put almost 2,000 signs out
and I had almost 1,000 left. But if
you see one of my signs, pull it up,
keep it, throw it away, make a yard
sign out of it whatever you want
to do with it. My friends and I will
get out within the next week or so
because I want them down within
the next two weeks. I want them
gone."
KW. What will be your first
priorities as far as learning the
ropes as a county commissioner,
and what will be your first priori-
ties as far as policy issues as a
county commissioner.

Sherry Campbell reflects on last meeting


In addition to high
school students, readers
included local business
professionals, retirees,
clergy, and educators.
Among their number
were names familiar in the
community such as Bob
Lynn, the voice of Bulldogs
football; Richbourg Prin-
cipal Bob Jones; Airport
Road Church of Christ
Pastor Jason Green;
realtor Jay Boxberger;
and Superintendent of
Schools Dr. Alexis Tib-
betts.
"I don't get to spend
time with children in class-
rooms as much anymore,"
said Tibbetts as she hap-
pily settled down in a rock-
er in Lyn Land's second


grade classroom.
Adjusting her reading
glasses, Tibbetts started
with a discussion about the
cover of the book she had
selected to read. Then with
gusto she launched into
"Alexander and the Ter-
rible, Horrible, No Good,
Very Bad Day."
It was a book her audi-
ence knew well. Whenever
Tibbetts read Alexander's
signature line, "I could tell
it was going to be a...,"
the kids jumped in and
chorused, "Terrible! Hor-
rible! No good! Very bad
day!"
"Readers are leaders
and leaders are readers,"
observed Walker Principal
Jeanine Kirkland.

Sherry Campbell attend-
ed her last Okaloosa Coun-
ty Commission meeting as
the District 1 commissioner
Nov. 4. Her newly elected
replacement, Crestview
Chamber of Commerce
Executive .Director Wayne
Harris, will take office be-
fore the commission's next
meeting Monday.
Campbell reported the
meeting didn't last too long
as everyone wanted to get
home and watch the elec-
tion returns.
A compiled list of all
the vendors the county con-
tracts with for services was


presented
at the meet-
ing. It is an
b excellent
resource for
small busi-
( I ness owners
who wish to
SHERRY seek a county
CAMPBELL contract.
CAMPBELL "Whether
you're in
lawn maintenance or food
service, you can go to the
Purchasing department
and see what contracts the
county has that you might
want to bid on when the
current contract expires,"
Campbell said. "It's a ben-
efit to the county as well as
to local businesses. It's the


best deal possible."
Campbell said the com-
missioners discussed put-
ting the list on the county
Web site to spare interested
parties a trip to the Crest-
view Purchasing depart-
ment office.
Until then, Campbell re-
minded those who are in-
terested that the Purchas-
ing department is across
the street from Crestview
Manor. There is no charge
to look at the list.
The impact of BRAC
on Crestview also was dis-
cussed.
"We had presentations
from the army about the
growth the north end will
expect from BRAC," Camp-


bell said. "They are under
the assumption that most
of the Army Special Forces
people will want to reside in
Crestview. They are start-
ing to talk to the transpor-
tation planners."
Campbell said discus-
sions also centered on
available health services
for the incoming personnel,
support staff, and families.
"I think Crestview's
health and medical facili-
ties are excellent in our
area, so when their people
come here, they will be
well cared for," Campbell
said.
Campbell's immediate
focus now will be on her ac-
countancy business.


COMMISSIONER from page Al


people from the county call
me and try to organize what
I've got to do and I appreci-
ate that. I'm going to ask a
lot of questions. I believe
the only stupid question is
the question you don't ask.
If I don't know, I'm going to
ask. And I think more ques-
tions need to be asked.
Policy issues ... I want
to emphasize what I ran on,
and that is infrastructure
needs, essential services
and needs, and public safe-
ty and security. It should
be the county's priority and
it should be any govern-
ment's priority. Those three
things constitutionally are
what we are required to do.
I think sometimes gov-
ernment tries to be every-
thing for everybody and I'm
not going to focus on that.
We need to focus on the
priorities. This is a tight
budget time as it is.
People ask me what I
mean by infrastructure.
Let's think in terms of
your house is your infra-
structure. If you have a
mortgage payment and
you spend your mortgage
payment money on going


out to eat and buying cars
and buying clothes and
don't pay your mortgage,
what happens? You lose
your house. Infrastructure
is the same way. If you
don't spend your money on
storm sewers and water
and roads and lighting and
all those things infrastruc-
ture is supposed to provide
for you, what happens is
they start failing you and
you don't have any money
to put into it.
There are 286 miles of
roads in Crestview and the
north county that are not
paved. At the present rate
of paving, it's going to be 28
to 30 years before they get
paved. That is unaccept-
able. We've got a road like
Kervin Road, taxpayers
can't get ambulance ser-
vice to them, can't get po-
lice service to them, can't
get school bus service to
them, because the road is
in such bad shape. We need
to suck it up in the county
and fix the roads. I would
like to see some kind of
priority in our paving and
step up the paving process
significantly. Not all of the


dirt roads want to be paved,
but they want to be main-
tained. I personally would
like to pave them all. I think
it's unacceptable in 2008 or
2009 to have unpaved roads
in our county.
I would like to see some
priority on development.
We've lost hundreds of
companies in this area,
which is a significant tax
base, because we don't
use objectivity; we use
subjectivity. We don't use,
common sense. We need
to do something to fix that.
And we need to work bet-
ter with our cities. We need
to reach out if we're not
reaching out. I know we've
got good relationships with
our cities (in District 1),
but we need to get a bet-
ter relationship. We're all
in the county. We're all in
this together. Let's all work
together.
One of my biggest pri-
orities is I want to see more
use of our organizations we
have. We've got some great
organizations (he listed the
Institute for Senior Profes-
sionals and Okaloosa Citi-
zens Alliance as examples).


These are mega-bright
people of all different po-
litical persuasions working
together in a non-partisan
environment. There are
many more organizations
like that that just want to
help the county. We need to
knock down some of those
walls that prevents them
from doing that.

KW: How will you find
time to balance your re-
sponsibilities with the
county and your respon-
sibilities as Executive
Director of the Crestview
Chamber of Commerce?
WH: "It's not unprec-
edented what I'm doing. All
the county commissioners
I've known since I've been
here for 15 years had other
jobs. And I know some of
the people that ran against
me said, 'I'm going to be a
full-time county commis-
sioner.' Well, I am going to
be a full time county com-
missioner. The advantage I
have is the county is just an
extension of what I've been
doing in the chamber. Eco-
nomic development. Doing
things that add value to the


community. Helping people.
I don't see it as a distrac-
tion of what I'm doing. I be-
lieve it enhances what I do
here. It gives strengths to
the north end of the county
and it brings strength to
the chamber and it gives
strength to the county.
My Air Force time as
a first sergeant, my duty
hours were 24 hours a day.
Because I have a great
staff (at the chamber), if
there is something I need
to do with the county, I can
come in (to the chamber)
on Saturday or Sundays
anyway. And my member-
ship knows that and my
leadership knows that. If
I've got to get something
done, I'll be in at 5:30 in the
morning or stay until 7 or 8
o'clock at night. There are
enough hours in the day.
Sleep is overrated anyway.
If I need to spend time on
weekends working here
to compensate for what I
haven't done during the
week, then I will do that.
I'll do whatever it takes
to get both jobs done. If it
takes 80 hours a week to
get both jobs done or 100


hours a week to get both
jobs done, that's what I'm
going to do.

KW: Understanding
you work for the county
as a whole, what is your
message for the citizens
of District 1?
WH: First, I do work for
the whole county. If you feel
uncomfortable calling who-
ever your county commis-
sioner is, you can always
call me.
But I'm going to tell you
quite candidly, I've been
here 15 years and I don't
think the emphasis on the
north end of the county has
been there. I believe we
have not had the emphasis
in county government that
we should have had. The
city of Crestview is now
the largest city in Okaloosa
County and Crestview is
also the county seat. There
is going to be a voice on the
commission, a strong voice,
for District 1. I've worked
eight years trying to build
this economy and commu-
nity up here, and I intend
to continue that. I intend to
speak my voice.

Crestview News Bulletin

The Laurel Hill Pres-
byterian Church and the
First Presbyterian Church of
Crestview have joined other
churches throughout Florida
in a "Lifestyle Integrity Chal-
lenge."
"Lifestyle integrity involves
becoming intentional about
our choices, because they have
global implications," said the
Rev. Mark Broadhead, pastor
of both churches.
' The first challenge, an-
nounced at the beginning of
September, asked congrega-
tions to make wiser decisions
about using energy more ef-
ficiently.
"Using energy more effi-
ciently leads to less demand
for it, helps control fuel prices,
makes fuel available to more
people and helps the environ-
ment," wrote Broadhead in
the churches' newsletter.
The second challenge


lasts through December
and asks members of both
churches to consider their
food and health.
"In this world, some go
hungry because many 'con-
sume too much of the world's
resources," Broadhead said.
From the lists of activities
people can do to help meet
the challenge, pastors have
been encouraging their con-
gregations to check as many
as possible. They are then
asked to sign and date the
challenge sheets received in
their weekly bulletins.
"Hang the list on your
refrigerator door or your
bathroom mirror where you
can see it each day," Pastor
Broadhead encouraged from
the pulpit on a recent Sunday.
Both churches offer the
challenges to other area
churches as well.
"Why not?" Broadhead
said. "These are simple
things everybody can do to
help improve our world."


Check the things fi-omi eachI list that iyou coia ecasild do. toheni huang the list oi on obvious place as a daily reminder.
"The better ice take care of ourselves. the more time. e.er'gy and ioneul ile cani use to. serve God and others," said the

GUEST COMMENTARY


A better bailout plan


John McMahon
Special to the News Bulletin
Bailout programs are
on everyone's mind lately,
though no one knows yet
whether they will work.
However, there is one plan
guaranteed to succeed. God
has a bailout plan for sinners!
Ever since Adam and
Eve, mankind has been mor-
ally and spiritually bankrupt,
creating a huge sin debt. God
sent his Son, Jesus, to take
our sins upon himself and
redeem us from our spiritual
poverty. Although no money
is required, we must make a
down payment of faith in Him
to be saved.
Salvation is another name
for bailout, so theologians
might agree on the exchange.
But the plan was very costly
to Jesus. It required his suf-


fering and death on the cross.
Why did God make this
compassionate plan of for-
giveness possible? Jesus'
best friend, the disciple
John, answers this question:
"For God loved the world, he
gave His only Son, that who-
ever believes in Him should
not perish but have eternal
life."
Jesus said, "Don't store up
treasures on Earth (on Main
Street or Wall Street) but lay
away treasures in Heaven
where no one can ever take
them away."

John McMahon is in his
55th year as a Sunday School
teacher at First Methodist
Church. "Maybe a record,"
he says. Mr. McMahon also
is the Poet Laureate for the
Florida Forestry Association.

Hendren picked for Laurel Hill council


Kyle Wright
Crestview News Bulletin

LAUREL HILL The Laurel Hill City
Council welcomed a new member dur-
ing its meeting Thursday night.
The council unanimously selected
Larry Hendren to fill its open seat.
The seat became vacant in August
when former council chair Vizell Rob-
bins was elevated to mayor upon the
resignation of former mayor James
Dunn.
"I've lived here for three years,
I'm retired (from civil service at Duke
Field) and was getting bored and look-
ing for a challenge," Hendren said.
Hendren holds associate's and
bachelor's degrees in management,
along with 30 years of experience in
civil service.
Robby Adams initially nominated
Hendren, noting he had expressed in
the vacant seat when it first became
open.
"I think that shows something," Ad-
ams said.
Hendren was sworn in following
the council vote.

Other business
Bill Schwalb of Trash Can Com-


pany II appeared to request a five-year
extension to the company's current
garbage service contract with the city.
Schwalb noted the company had do-
nated 250 trash cans at a cost of about
$8,000. The extension would help the
company recoup its investment. The
company has less than two years re-
maining on its contract with the city.
Council Chair Gary Collinsworth
said the city would consider a renego-
tiation of the contract.
Schwalb also addressed residents'
questions about garbage service. He
said the company requests cans be
placed between zero and three feet
from the road on pickup days because
of workman's compensation exposure
guidelines. He said the company does
not pick up trash outside of containers
because of a need to limit the amount
of trash per household.
"We're not trying to be difficult," he
said. "We're just trying to get everyone
on the same page."
Matthew Stucki of the 1905 Gal-
lery proposed a long-term lease of a
triangle-shaped parcel of property
near the gallery to address a lack of
parking near the building.
Stucki said the Gallery would main-
tain the historic components of the
property. The city would benefit from
added income, less maintenance,

The council heard several com-
ments from citizens, including con-
cerns about cat control and concerns
about erosion on roads along with a
suggestion for a redwoods tourist at-
traction in the city.
The council scheduled its second
November meeting for 6:30 p.m. Nov.

with the Thanksgiving holiday.

Whether you voted for Barack

Paul: "I urge, then, first of all, that
requests, prayers, intercession
and thanksgiving be made for
everyone-for kings and all those in
authority, that we may live peaceful
and quiet lives in all godliness and
holiness" (1 Timothy 2:1-3).

LE COURRIER VENDIEN I Special to the News Bulletin
TALL TALES ON TV: Roland Thepot, left, a reporter for the TV
network France 3, interviews two casse-po" practitioners
on Noirmoutier for a story about the story-telling
tradition.

Report from our SISTER CITY


Spinnin' yarns

in Noirmoutier


Franck Fischbach
Le Courrier Vendeen
Special to the Crestview News Bulletin

NOIRMOUTIER EN L'ILE,
FRANCE Editor's note:
To help draw the sister
cities of Crestview
and Noirmoutier
closer together, the
News Bulletin and our
counterpart, Le Courrier
Vendden, will exchange
monthly reports of our
communities' respective
activities.
Telling tall tales is a
Noirmoutier tradition that
highlights this month's
report. Casse-poi is a
story-telling tradition
that has evolved into
a recreational sport
among Noirmoutier's
older residents. They
were recently featured on
France 3 TV

Lively island tradition
interests French TV
In a turnaround for the
"casse-poi" addicts from
the Noirmoutier villages of
L'Herbaudinre and L'Epine,
the observers became
the observed. Roland
Thepot's camera studied
the tradition for the TV
program "Littoral," to be
broadcast on the France 3
channel in early 2009.
No one questions
that old people don't
know how to deal with
their afternoons. On
Noirmoutier, afternoons
are devoted to the casse-
poi, a typical and local
recreation. How to make a
good casse-poi? You only
need a bench, and a good
dose of imagination.
"Casse-pol is the
daily occupation of older
people. It is everywhere
on the island. Small
groups meet to talk about
everything, to pass the
time," summarized Noel
Tessier of the casse-poi at
Luzeronde beach.
Topics are never
exhausted, Tessier said.
"People speak about
boats, their neighbors," he
said. "Here, there are liars
too. We invent lives, stories
to tease people, their
secrets.


Mayor Cadle on a
Crestview tradition
Crestview Mayor Da-
vid Cadle couldn't think
of a Crestview tradition
quite like the "casse-poi"
in Noirmoutier. but he
does think the people of
our French sister city
might raise an eyebrow at
some of our area's tradi-
tional favorite foods.
"I'm sure they would
find some of our culi-
nary tastes strange,"
Cadle said. "They might
not understand grits or
black-eyed peas or col-
lard greens. Our culinary
tastes are quite different
from European or French
cuisine.
"And of course ours is
far superior," he joked.

"On this bench, we are
five. The first subject of
the day is to say nonsense
about the person who's not
here," Tessier said, adding
quickly, "but not badly, just
for joking."
Recently, France 3
reporter Roland Thepot
visited a four-person
team to make a report for
the Saturday afternoon
"Littoral."
"When we went on
Noirmoutier, last spring,
I was interested by the
casse-poi, and I wanted
to come back to make a
report," said the reporter.
"It's a funny topic,
with a lot of emotion,
human exchange between
different people. We miss
it in France! Casse-poi is
really a strange and funny
tradition," he said.
"Here, you can hear
everything: criticisms,
comments, slices of life,
and lies t the point of not
knowing where is truth
and where is a lie. But it's
not to be ugly, it's just for
laugh. It's a typical and
theatrical form of joking
from Noirmoutier."
For the ten-minute
program, the four
journalists recorded 15 30-
min tapes.
"We have a lot of funny
things," Thepot said. "The
choice will be hard!"

Crestview News Bulletin

Walker Elementary
School Principal Jeanine
Kirkland is excited about
the many academic endeav-


ors the school
has undertak-
en this year.
"There re-
ally has been
a concentra-
tion to get
parents and
community
members into
the school,"
Kirkland said.


KIRKLAND


The school is fresh off
the success of its recent
Leaders for Readers pro-
gram. Members of the com-
munity as well as older stu-
dents from Crestview High
came into classrooms and
read to younger kids.
"We had our Book Fair
and Reading Night in Octo-
ber," Kirkland related. "It
was great. The Book Fair
was very successful. We had
lots of parents come in and
help their students select
books, as well as children
shopping for books of their
own.
"The teachers are just as
bad as the kids. They want
to go in there and just want
to buy all the books they
see!" Kirkland added.
The school's recent
parent conferences have
been a success, Kirkland
said.
"They've been very well
attended. Parents had the
opportunity to meet with
teachers and discuss partic-
ulars of the curriculum and
classroom expectations,"
she said. "It was also a good
chance for parents to learn
a little more about FCATs.
That was something our
surveys said was a need."
Trish Melton's Project
Child language arts fourth-
grade class has completed
the first issue of Walker's
new school newspaper.
"Right now it's the No-
Name News," Kirkland said.
"Currently names are being

Like many schools in
the area, Walker proudly
celebrated Veterans Day
with a special "Red, White &
Blue Day."
"We had the Crestview
High School Drum Corps
come over and the entire
school marched around the
school," Kirkland said. "Par-
ents came, and we honored
four of our faculty members
who are veterans. We really
appreciated "CHS Band
Director Jody Dunn and the
Drum Corps coming over
here. That made the day
really special for us."
Sponsors Bretta Berg-
er and Brandy Ard have
been practicing regularly
with the academic team
students, Kirkland re-
ported. The team competes
with other academic teams
in the district.
"We're excited to have
that team," Kirkland said.
"We also have an Odyssey
of the Mind team that Miss
Berger is also sponsoring."
While parents have
been more and more in-
volved with daily life at
Walker, the kids' teachers
have been doing some team
building of their own.
"Our teachers have re-
ally been big contributors
to Relay for Life," Kirkland
said proudly. "It's been
great for the camaraderie
among faculty. They work
very hard on that."
With the holidays just
around the corner, "we're
getting ready for all the ac-
tivities that are going to be
happening in December,"
Kirkland said. "We're work-
ing hard!"

Veterans Day in CRESTVIEW


Saluting

America


at Antioch

Brian Hughes
Crestview News Bulletin

Amid a flutter of the Ameri-
can flags, each waved with vigor,
hundreds of kids from Antioch El-
ementary School paid tribute to
their country during the school's
Kids for America programs Fri-
day and Monday morning.
Their special guests, Ameri-
can servicemen and veterans
from several branches of our mili-
tary, including many parents, also
were honored.
Mistress of ceremonies, music
teacher Patti Mitchell, surveyed
the standing-room-only throng
and proudly declared, "I look for-
ward and I see the future of our
country, and I look backward and
I see the future of our country. It
is a feast for my eyes!"
Featured guest speaker retired
Air Force Col. Jerry Rankin joked
that his uniform fit a bit snugly,
not just because he'd gained a lit-
tle weight since retirement, "but
when I look out and I see all this
red, white and blue, it makes my
chest swell."
Encouraging the students
to perform well in school and
at home, Col. Rankin told those
who have parents overseas on
duty, "They can do their job bet-
ter when you're doing a good job
at home."
With Mitchell conducting, the
kids sang several patriotic songs
they'd been rehearsing, including
"You're a Grand Old Flag," "God
Bless America" and a medley of
service anthems from the U.S.
Air Force, Army, Marine Corps
and Navy.

was TSgt. Sean Milligan, who attended with his
daughter Jenna, 3. Below, hundreds of Antioch
Elementary School Aviators, including fourth

'Freedom isn't free'


John Parrott
Crestview News Bulletin

The haunting peal of the
First Presbyterian Church
bells signaled the start of
the Veterans Day program
Tuesday morning here in
Crestview.
The sounds are a remind-
er of the events from which
Veterans Day sprang.
Veterans Day officially
is set aside to honor and
remember veterans of all
wars, both those living and
dead.
Veterans Day got its roots
in World War I. The "Great
War" officially ended with
the signing of the Treaty of
Versailles in June 1919, but
hostilities between Ger-
many and the Allied powers
ended a year earlier at the
llth hour on the llth day of
November 1918.
In fact, it was known as
Armistice Day in this coun-
try until Congress began
experimenting with four-day
weekends. After furor from
the public, Congress put the
clock back and left Nov. 11
alone to be known as Armi-
stice Day until a few years
ago. Thus the name change
to Veterans Day.
What does this mean to
the average person on the
street?
One who understands is
Michelle Griffin, mother of
two and widow of Air Force
Staff Sgt. Patrick Griffin.
Griffin was killed in action
Iraq in 2003.
To Michelle, Veterans
Day is not just another holi-
day to sleep in or go to the


ANN SPANN l Crestview No.. Bulldin

roses at the Okaloosa County Veteran's Memorial in
Crestview during Veterans Day ceremonies Tuesday.
Michelle's husband, Patrick Griffin, was one of the first
from Okaloosa County killed in Afghanistan.


mall. It is a day that has
been etched in her memory
because she was required to
share the ultimate sacrifice
of her husband and father of
her two children.
"I vividly remember the
two Air Force officers in full
dress uniform coming to
inform me that Patrick had
been killed. I was shocked,
horrified and in grief," Grif-
fin said, "but I also knew
Patrick loved what he was
doing, and to him it wasn't
a job but a commitment.
Patrick died doing what he
loved doing. He was a career
Air Force man and one who
loved his country and loved
his job."
"My husband did not
die in vain, and I am proud
of who he was and what


he did," Griffin said, as
tears slowly ran down her
cheeks.
This is what Veterans
Day is all about. It is about
defending this country.
Veterans Day helps keep
the flame alive and reminds
the American public this
land is worth defending and
it requires personal sacri-
fice.
There will always be a Mi-
chelle Griffin who stands at
a lonely gravesite and plac-
es a wreath at her spouse's
grave. She will do it because
she will understand just as
clearly as the loved one did.
Freedom isn't free.

Servicemen join Covenant Hospice to thank vets


Brian Hughes
Crestview ews Bulletin
Dressed in their best uni-
forms, a contingent of active-
duty servicemen took time
Tuesday to express their
respect and appreciation to


those who have served be-
fore them.
Working with staff from
Covenant Hospice's Crest-
view office, the airmen and
soldiers visited several area
nursing homes to meet vet-
erans and help present cer-

tificates of appreciation.
"I'm not here just for me,"
said Army veteran James
Smith. "My father spent 20
years in the U.S. Air Force.
This is for him, too."
Though now stooped and
slowed by age, many of the
vets' eyes gleamed as they
shared stories of their ser-
vice years with one another
and with their visitors.
A brief ceremony at the
Parthenon Healthcare Cen-
ter began with an honor
guard marching into the sun-
ny dining room and present-
ing the colors as "The Star
Spangled Banner" played.
The facility's residents who
are service veterans then
were recognized.
"For as long as we have
lived in the United States,
we have had our veterans to
thank," Col. Steve Chapman,
commander of the 919th
Special Operations Wing at
Duke Field said during his
remarks. "We owe our vet-
erans a debt of gratitude,
yesterday, today and tomor-
row."
After Col. Chapman's ad-
dress, the uniformed ser-
vice personnel fanned out
through the room, present-
ing veterans or their family

REMEMBER



Crestview wrestling team gears up for an emotional year


Randy Dickson
Crestview News Bulletin
The nine. months since the
Crestview wrestling team last
took to the mats have been filled
with sadness.
The team shared in the loss
of CHS coach Jeff Fowler's wife,
Carrie, who was in many ways a
team mother to all the members
of the program. The Bulldogs
are dedicating the season to her
memory.
This also will be the eighth and
final year for Fowler, who has an-
nounced he will be stepping down
at the end of the season and re-
turning to his native Maryland to
be closer to his family.
Amidst this swarm of emo-
tions the Dawgs are preparing
a campaign that could be some-
thing special.
"It really makes me want to
push harder," Colin Smith, a 125-
pound junior said. "I told him
when he announced it, 'Let's
make it the best year yet.'
"The fact is he taught a lot of
us how to wrestle, and him leav-
ing makes you want to step up
and win the district title for him
and the school and push that
much harder. Everybody wants
to push harder."
Justin Mitchell said the wres-
tling team is family, and honoring
Carrie Fowler's memory is just
one way to express that family
feeling.
"We thought it would be really
good for (Fowler) because it's
his last season with us, and we
thought it would be really good
for him and his family," Mitchell
said. "We are all a big family. We
do things together and for each
other."
The long off-season ends today
as the Crestview wrestling team
hosts a Preseason Classic in the

"We are solid top to
bottom. If the kids get
to the weights they
should from 112 to
140, we are going to be
really good. And then
from 152 all the way
up to heavyweight we
are going to be solid."

Jeff Fowler
CHS wrestling coach

CHS gym. Matches start at 10
a.m.
The Bulldogs, who finished
second to Mosley in the District
1-2A tournament last year, open
the regular season next Saturday
at home.
"We graduated a few kids,
but really just two big point kids.
- Kyle Miller and Nick Panucci,"
Fowler said. "We've got kids that
are going to step in and move
up a weight class from last year
because they are going to grow
right into their spot.
"We've got some kids that are
returning and one transfer that's
going to be big for us."
Smith, Danny Johnson, Trevor
Sauls, Aaron Dean, Justin Mitch-


ell, Terrell Williamson, Cody
Smoyer and Darrel Williams are
the top returnees. Tanner Bigren
transferred in from Indiana and
will provide immediate help.
With so many athletes return-
ing from last year's squad it's no
surprise that Fowler is optimis-
tic.
"Not to sound prideful or
cocky, but in my eight years this
is the best team we are going to
have, bar none" he said. "And we
are going to be better next year.
"We are solid top to bottom. If
the kids get to the weights they
should from 112 to 140, we are
going to be really good. And then
from 152 all the way up to heavy-
weight we are going to be solid."
Once again Fowler expects to
be chasing Mosley for the district
title, but notes all of the schools
in the district possess good wres-
tlers, creating challenges in ev-
ery weight class.
Not only did the Bulldogs lose
one of their staunchest support-
ers with the death of Carrie Fowl-
er, but several other members of
the team have lost loved ones as
well this year.
Johnson sees the team bond-
ing through the losses.
"I think it spurs everybody on
to try harder and to make up for
the losses," he said. "It's more
motivation really.
"It's a good way to sweat out
the aggression and let loose."
Dean a junior, believes this
could be the year the Bulldogs
pass the Dolphins in the district.
"I think we've got a lot of
young wrestlers, and we are go-
ing to be a really good team this
year," the 189-pounder said. "We
have a bunch of returning varsity
wrestlers, and with this being
coach's last year I think we can
get it together and win it all this
year."

Golf Tips from
the Pro: Get a leg
up on the field

Jeff Marks
As told to Randy Dickson

Today in Golf Tips
from the Pro, Heritage
Plantation PGA teach-
ing pro Jeff Marks of-
fers some advice on
how to best use your
leg power to get the
most distance out of
your swing.
This segment should be
pretty good one for most golf-
ers.
We are going to talk about
how to begin the downswing.
I feel a lot of people are a little
confused on what they should
use as a power source from
the top (of their swing).
I like to use analogies in
golf. In this case I'll use a base-
ball toss.
If somrrebody was going
to throw a ball, say a pitcher,
once they get wound up at the
top, would they be effective if
they tried throwing down just
using their hand or arm? The
lower body is always going to
start first.
In golf the easiest way to
get power is from the ground
up. Jack Nicklaus talked
about it for years. And Tommy
Armour before him, and Byron
Nelson.
You have to get your
power from your feet and your
legs. Once we get turned
back to the top just like in
baseball the first move is
pushing off with the backside,
In baseball we have a
pitcher's mound and we push
off the pitcher's rubberrubber to get'
some momentum and gain
some torque in the upper
body. That's how Nolan Ryan
pitched so fast for so many
years. I heard him once say he
never used his arm.
I taught quite a few hockey
stars up in New York and they
all hit the ball a mile because
they had big legs and they
knew how to generate that
power.
At the top of the backswing
we've talked about making
a nice wide takeaway with
a good shoulder turn, At this
point, just like in baseball, you
want to feel the weight on the
inside'of your back foot. Your
first move down from top with-
out wasting all the power in
the upper body is to push off
with the back foot.
If we can feel as if the legs
are working toward the target
with the first move it creates
a late hit and the hands lag
down.
And it flattens the down-
swing so the club is coming on
the inside path, which is criti-
cal if you want to hit a draw
- and most people want to
hit a draw.
Also, if the legs are work-
ing well from the op it gets
you centered on the golf ball
so your contact is going to be
a lot more square a lot more
often.
If you look at golfers on
tour they all finish in perfect
balance in the follow-through.
The reason they have perfect
balance is because their legs
led through the swing.
The reason this is so tough
for a lot of people is that our
arms swing freely and the
brain's initial reaction is just to
swing the arms to make the
club go fast. If you are using
the lower body to start the
swing, when the lower body
starts moving out of the way
the arms can go faster be-
cause you are not fighting your
lower body.
