It was a year that perhaps set the foun-
dation for big things for north Okaloosa
County in the near future.
The possibility of a Florida A&M phar-
macy school and rural diversity health
facility in downtown Crestview was voted
the top local story of 2008, based on a
www.crestviewbulletin.com reader poll.
The FAMU project could pump mil-
lions into the local economy. The official
announcement that the Army 7th Special
Forces will relocate to Duke Field will
bring thousands to the north county area.


Some of the news in 2008 was more
somber. Preston Medley, a Baker gradu-
ate, was killed in action in Afghanistan.
Several prominent local residents lost
their lives on area roads this year.
There was tragedy averted when a crash
involving a Walker Elementary school bus
resulted in no life-threatening injuries.
There was controversy over the North
Okaloosa Fire District's funding proposal
We look back at the top eight stories of
,2008, leading with the FAMU story and
continuing in chronological order.

As north county families
quaffed eggnog on Christ-
mas and toast one another
tonight on New Year's Eve,
thousands of miles away,
one Crestview native son
is spending his holidays a
little differently.
Aboard the USS "Teddy
Roosevelt," an aircraft car-
rier based out of Norfolk,
Va., "It's just another day


in paradise out here," Avia-
tion Ordnanceman 2 Byron
Dreading laughed.
When Dreading spoke
with the News Bulletin, his
ship was cruising the Gulf
of Oman in the Fifth Fleet.
Dreading, a 2003 gradu-
ate of Crestview High,
School, bucked local tradi-
tion and joined the Navy
instead of the Air Force.
Blame it on a wrong turn
on the way to the recruiting
office.


"I was gonna go in the
Air Force at first," Dread-
ing said. "My mom took me
to the recruiting station in
Fort Walton Beach. All the
recruiters were in the one
little plaza, and I happened
to walk into the wrong of-
fice. The Navy guys told me
everything I wanted to hear.
To make a long story short,
here I am."

TOP EIGHT LOCAL STORIES OF 2008 from page Al


FAMU hopes to place
pharmacy school in
downtown Crestview
The possibility of a Flor-
ida A&M University rural
diversity health care facility
in downtown Crestview
drew headlines for much
of 2008.
The project came to
light when a $2.5 million ap-
propriation for the project
was approved as part of the
state budget.
State Sen. Durell
Peaden, who championed
the project in the legisla-
ture, and FAMU officials
appeared before the Crest-
view city council during
summer meetings to build
support for the project.
FAMU is expected to
house the facility in a reno-
vated Alatex building in
downtown Crestview. A ma-
jority of council members
voted to transfer title to the
building to FAMU.
The facility first would
host a pharmacy school.
Nursing and allied health
programs could be added.
The facility eventually could
become a research center.
The initial economic im-
pact of the facility has been
estimated at $3 to $9 million
annually. Peaden expects
an impact of "hundreds of
millions" of dollars over the
life of the project.

Motorcycle accidents
claim lives of
prominent local citizens
The number of Florida
motorcycle deaths has
increased annually in the
past several years, and the
local community did not
escape the trend. ,
Prominent citizens like
Mike Josey, David Ring
and Mark Lachapelle died
in motorcycle-automobile
accidents on State Road 85
during 2008.
Josey, 44, a well-known
businessman, the future
president of the Building
Industry Association of
Okaloosa-Walton Counties
and past president of the
Crestview Area Chamber of
Commerce, died March 16


when a car pulled in front
of the motorcycle he was
riding on.
Ring, 60, the president
of Speedee Cash Manage-
ment Inc., died June 25
when his motorcycle struck
a utility-style truck as it
attempted a U-turn.
Lachapelle, 46, a civilian
guard with the 96t Security
Forces Squadron at Eglin
Air Force Base, died Nov. 3
when his motorcycle struck
the side of a vehicle that
turned in front of him.
Tragedy struck local
schools late in the year.

nior Mitch Kertis died in a

Vizell Robbins
becomes Laurel Hill
mayor
A series of political
events propelled Laurel
Hill's former city council
president, Vizell Robbins,
to the mayor's office in
August, making the quiet,
unassuming gentleman
Okaloosa County's first
black mayor.
Robbins was the coun-
cil's only returning member
when the body's new mem-
bers were sworn in on April
1, 2007. At that time he was
elected its president.
Upon the unexpected
resignation of Mayor James
Dunn this summer, accord-
ing to the city's charter, the
council president assumes
the office of mayor for the
duration of the unexpired
term. Council President
Robbins became Mayor
Robbins, moving to the seat
at the end of the table.
"I just want to do the
best that I can for the
people of Laurel Hill," Rob-
bins said during his first
council meeting as mayor
on Aug. 14.

City takes no action
- twice - on
alcohol sales proposals


Dwindling gate receipts
and public apathy threat-
ened the continuation of
Crestview's Old Spanish
Trail Festival during the last
two years. A drenching rain-
storm this year didn't help
matters.
Organizers say that re-
vising a city ordinance that
prohibits alcohol sales on
city-owned property could
be the decades-old event's
salvation.
"I can't think of another
city you can go to and attend
a festival that they don't
serve alcoholic beverages
of one form or another,"
former OSTF Society Presi-
dent "Mac" MacKendree
told News Bulletin Editor
Kyle Wright in an October
interview. "Most of them
don't have liquor, but most
of them have beer and wine.
Where can you go and not
buy a beer?
"'And when you're talking
country music, it's kind of
not right to not have beer!"
he added.
A decisive number of
Crestview city council mem-
bers twice voted to take no
action on the proposals.
"Businesspeople and the
communityas whole surely
have enough brains to work
this out without booze on
the menu," one commenter
said on the News Bulletin's
Web site. "Surely the sale of
alcoholic beverages alone
won't save the event."

Baker graduate killed
in Afghanistan
The north Okaloosa
County community was,
jolted by the death Preston
Medley, a 2003 Baker grad-
uate and Army corporal.
Medley, 23, was killed by a
roadside bomb in Afghani-
stan on Oct. 14.
Medley, his wife Sarah
and 1-year-old daughter re-
sided in Texas. The couple
was expecting a son this
month.
Medley is also survived
by his grandparents, father
and sister, who still live in
the area, as well as many
close friends. His mom died
in 2005 and that was when
he decided to join the Army.


"He pretty much had his
mind set on going into the
Army, going to the war and
doing what he thought was
right," said his little sister,
-Kristian Meeks, told the
Northwest Florida Daily
News.
When word reached
Baker School, where Pres-
ton had been a well-liked
student, staff members
mourned his death. He
played football there and
was involved in the broad-
casting program.

NOFD charter
amendment scuttled
Despite a concerted
effort to educate voters
through various means,
including off-duty firefight-
ers manning the polls to
greet voters and answer
questions, an amendment
that would allow a mill-
age increase for the North
Okaloosa Fire District was
defeated by a November
vote of 3,590 to 5,935.
It was the amendment's
second defeat, following the
first in August during pri-
mary elections.
Following the vote, the
district's Board of Commis-
sioners voted to consolidate
operations at the new Sta-
tion 82 at Bob Sikes Airport.
"We will make every at-
tempt to provide to fire pro-
tection that we can," NOFD
Chief Ed Cutler assured.
"We will continue fight fires
and run calls."
Cutler was frustrated by
what he termed "misinfor-
mation" disseminated by a
group led by businessman
and real estate developer
Daniel Bowers Sr. called
Citizens Against More
Taxes Committee.
"The misinformation
really hurt our chances,"
Cutler said.
"Our opposition was not
just about what it was go-
ing to cost us if passed, but
more about the unwilling-
ness of the NOFD board
to live within the money it
had," said Bowers in a let-
ter to the News Bulletin.
"Our belief was and is that
if they were unwilling to live
within what they had, they


wouldn't be willing to live
within any increase they
get."

BRAC decision will
bring 7th Special Forces
to Crestview area
It's official.
The Army's 7th Special
Forces Group (Airborne)
will relocate to Eglin Air
Force Base in an area west
of Duke Field as part of the
Base Realignment and Clo-
sure law.
The long-anticipated de-
cision became official when
the Air Force and Army
announced their Record of
Decision on Nov. 21
With easy access to
Duke Field for frequent
deployments and room for
future expansions, the loca-
tions were Eglin's preferred
choices.
. Col. Bruce McClintock,
96th Air Base Wing Com-
mander, said the Record
of Decision for the realign-
ment of 7th SFG (A) was
the highlight of the day.
"It's just the next step
for Eglin to become a pre-
mier installation," he said.
Construction of the
dorms and the Special Op-
erations Forces Compound
will start in 2009 and cost
$382 million.
Members of the 7th SFG
(A) will start moving in late
spring. The moves will con-
tinue through 2011.
The arrival of the 7th
Special Forces is expected
to bring about 6,000 people
to the Crestview area.

Jimmy Ates murder
conviction vacated
Jimmy Ates was re-
leased from custody Dec.
18 following a judge's over-
turning of his 1998 first de-
gree murder conviction.
Circuit Court Judge
William Stone wasted little
time in granting a request
that Ates' life sentence be
vacated during a hearing
Dec. 17.
The same State Attor-
ney's Office that prosecuted


him a decade ago had rec-
ommended he be granted a
new trial.
The new trial was sched-
uled for Jan. 26.
Ates, a teacher at Baker
School, was convicted in
1998 of fatally shooting his
wife Norma Jean Ates on
June 2, 1991. He was sen-
tenced to life in prison.
Eighth District Assistant
State Attorney Geoff Fleck
reviewed the conviction this
year and called for a new
trial for Ates. Fleck said
ballistics evidence used
against Ates had been dis-
credited by the FBI.
. Attorneys for the In-
nocence Project of Florida
defended Ates. They said
in a news release Ates "is
the first person in the na-
tion to have a conviction
overturned based on the
FBI's disavowal" of what is
known as comparative bul-
let lead analysis (CBLA).

magazine that assembles
the bombs slung from the
"Roosevelt's" aircraft.
Though the ship carries
some "ready to drop"
bombs, the majority of the
weapons have to be put
together before they're
ready to lob at the bad
guys.
"I'm responsible for
weapons assembly,"
Dreading explained. "I am
responsible for assembling
them from the magazine
down inside the aircraft
carrier and getting them
up to the flight deck and
on to the aircraft that then
support our troops on the

The work is fascinat-

times be grueling, and
the "Roosevelt" steams
through some interesting
waters.
But for servicemen like
Dreading, there's no place
like home, especially for
the holidays.
"I lived in Crestview my
whole life," he said. "This

'Putnam Spelling Bee' to run at NWFSC


Brian Hughes
Arts & Entertainment Editor

The agony and the ecstasy
of a school spelling bee hardly
'seems a likely theme for one of
the biggest Broadway smash
Musicals of recent years, yet
"The 25th Annual Putnam Coun-
ty Spelling Bee" took the Great
White Way by storm in 2005,
winning six Tony Awards and
running for 1,136 performances
before closing last January.
Now the musical comedy
by William Finn and Rachel
Sheinkin is coming to North-
west Florida State College's
Mattie Kelly Fine and Perform-
ing Arts Center as part of this
season's Broadway series.
Unlike most Broadway plays,
this production offers you the
opportunity to get into the ac-
tion.
The hilarious tale of over-
achievers' angst chronicles the
experiences of six adolescents
in the throes of puberty as they
vie for the spelling champion-
ship of a lifetime. As the kids
learn that winning isn't every-
thing and that losing doesn't
necessarily make you a loser,
audience members have the op-
portunity to become part of the
action as on-stage spellers.


THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
Jan. 12, 7:30 p.m., Mattie Kelly Fine and Performing Arts Center, Northwest Florida State College. Tickets
are $45 each with a $5 per ticket discount for groups of 10 or more.
Box office phone and in-person sales reopen January 5. Online ticket sales are available at anytime at
www.mattiekellyartscenter.org. Contact the box office at (850) 729-6000 or toll free (888) 838-ARTS
(2787). The box office will also open at 6 p.m. the night of the show for any available at-the-door ticket sales.

HUBBUB

Here is a sampling of what people had
to say about recent north Okaloosa County
news topic. Comments were collected from the
crestviewbulletin.com Web site.

Topic: Opinions still differ on how to
deal with feral cat colony near Twin Hills
Park.
In Dothan, Ala., we have a group Felines Under
Rescue and we do TNR (Trap Neuter Return).
This is the only humane way to deal with the feral
cat population. They are trapped, fixed, have a
rabies shot, their left ears are tipped, and then the
cats are returned back to their area. Feral cats
are not a danger to anyone! They are skittish and
will not approach people. Go to the Web site www.
alleycatallies.org and read about this nationwide
humane, compassionate way to deal with this
problem.
From reading the comments to your article, I'm
sorry to see that you have many cat haters in your
area. Last year Dothan wanted to exterminate all
feral cat colonies and make it illegal to feed them,
among other ridiculous laws. The animal lovers
came out in force and the new ordinance did not
pass.
And regarding the price of spay/neuter
being too expensive ... it is! And that is why
there is a problem of overpopulation of stray
animals. But we will soon open in Dothan a
low cost spay/neuter clinic where the prices
will be affordable, and it will be available to
anyone from anywhere. We will even have a van to
go to other areas to pick up people's pets to take
them to the clinic for spay/neuter and then return
them.
It's nice to see how compassionate,
caring communities welcome these colonies
and protect them. It is done in other cities.
Unfortunately the south is far behind in
humane, compassionate treatment of dogs and
cats!
The Dothan Eagle really helped us with its "pro
animal/spay/neuter" editorials and articles, as well
as the local television stations! Many people are
just uneducated when it comes to feral cats and
their colonies. They are not dangerous!

Topic: Florida A&M University President
Dr. James Ammons discusses the proposed
FAMU Crestview campus with News Bulletin
Editor Kyle Wright.
CNB thanks for the article. I am hopeful
that we will see the success of the FAMU
College of Pharmacy very soon. FAMU-Crestview
does have a good ring to it, and some of our local
aspiring pharmacists will benefit from the school
and the convenience of being home. God bless the
effort, FAMU and Crestview!

Topic: Jimmy Ates murder conviction
vacated; new trial scheduled for Jan. 26
"Better that ten guilty persons escape than that
one innocent suffer," says English jurist William
Blackstone. We have adopted that philosophy.
Think about it. It's for the good.

Good for Jim!

PASSING SHOTS


We offer these New Year's



resolutions to benefit readers


We make New Year's
resolutions in the
newspaper business, too.
We close 2008 with five
New Year's resolutions
intended to benefit
readers of the Crestview
News Bulletin and www.
crestviewbulletin.com in
2009.
* We resolve to offer
distinct Internet and
print products.
I make a point of
introducing myself this
way: "My name
is Kyle Wright,
and I work for the
Crestview News
Bulletin and www.
crestviewbulletin. -V
com."
We work on the
newspaper and KYLE
the Web site in (850)


the same building,
but they are two distinct
products.
We've moved past the
days when we simply
dumped all of our print
edition articles on the Web
site.
We don't have to
worry about deadlines
on our Web site, so we
post all of our up-to-the-
minute news at www.
crestviewbulletin.com.
We don't have to worry
about running out of space
on our Web site, so we
post photo galleries of
community events at www.
crestviewbulletin.com
You can't cut a photo
out of a computer screen,
so we emphasize articles


We resolve to strive to be the top source for news
and information in north Okaloosa County.
This was one of our New Year's resolutions
last year, and will be every year.

and photos that would go
in one's scrapbook in the
Crestview News Bulletin
print edition.
You can't haul a
computer everywhere you
go for reading material -
yet - so we reserve our
in-depth articles
for the Crestview
News Bulletin
print edition.
If you're
r reading this
column only in the
- I Crestview News
/RIGHT Bulletin print
82-6524 edition, visit www.


crestviewbulletin.
com. You'll get the
breaking news updates
we can't offer in our print
edition.
If you're reading this
column only at www.
crestviewbulletin.com,
pick up a copy of our print
edition. You'll probably
see a photo of someone
you know - maybe even
of yourself - and you'll
get analysis of some of the
stories you read online.
* We resolve to offer
more photo galleries.
We started to emphasize
online photo galleries in
late October. Your response
has been overwhelmingly
positive, based on our
increased Web site page


views. We'll continue to
post as many photos as
we can snap at www.
crestviewbulletin.com. If
you don't see us at an event
and you want to share
some of your photos with
the community, please
send them in and we'll get
them posted in cyberspace
- and maybe on paper, too.
* We resolve to
maintain our innovative
online sports reference
site.
The sports
section of the www.
crestviewbulletin.com
Web site is organized by
team instead of by date.
If you're a Crestview
football fan or a Laurel
Hill softball fan, you can
click on the page specific
to your team instead
of scrolling through an
endless list of stories.
Our local team pages
include schedules, results,
statistics and district
standings for most area
teams.
These pages are only
as good as the information.
we get for them. If you
visit your favorite team's
home page and see we
have some information
missing, please feel free to
contact us to help us fill in
the blanks.


* We resolve to
continue our 'Just Say
Yes' policy.
The bad news: We
can't possibly cover every
newsworthy event in
north Okaloosa County
in person. There's not
enough of us and not
enough hours in the day.
The good news: If
you send us a small
write-up and/or a photo
from your event, we'll
follow our "Just Say Yes"
policy for inclusion in the
newspaper. We will get your
information in the paper at
some point, maybe even on
the front page.
* We resolve to strive
to be the top source for
news and information in
north Okaloosa County.
This was one of our
New Year's resolutions last
year, and will be every year.
Happy New Year!

Letters to the EDITOR


Animal Protection
League supports
'TNR'
The Animal Protection
League feels very
strongly about the "city
of Crestview's" actions
towards the feral cats at
the park. These people
are so misinformed
about feral cats. They
do not attack humans,
unless they are cornered,
which they will not be
while outdoors. They
stay away from humans,
especially children. If
you are interested in
learning about feral cats,
check the web sites of the
Humane Society of the
United States, the most
prestigious humane group
in the U.S., and Alley Cat
Allies. The most effective
way to control the cat
overpopulation problem
is TNR (trap/neuter/
release). The city will
never trap all the cats at
the park. They have very


few traps and are totally
ignorant about the best
trapping techniques. I
have trapped hundreds of
cats, nearly all of them in
the Crestview area. The
cats in the feral colony
that I care for have all
been spayed/neutered,
and no kittens have been
born there in years.
Alison DeBruhl
Animal Proection
League of Okaloosa
County

Former city manager
concerned by Laurel
Hill council action
Editor's note:
Former Laurel Hill City
Manager Tim Bolduc
submitted this letter
after the Laurel Hill City
Council voted to cease
pursuit of a Community
Development Block
Grant to build a second
water tower and instead
use an already-secured
$300,000 appropriation


for improvements to the
city's water lines.
The problem with
what Paul (Johnson, the
city's water operator)
said is that it does not
address the capacity
requirements in the comp
plan (Johnson told the
council the current tank
is at less than 50 percent
capacity. Department
of Environmental
Protection regulations
state a new tank is
required when a tank
surpasses 75 percent
capacity.). The comp plan
requires 143 gallons per
person per day regardless
of consumption. His logic
also does not address
"peak use times" such
as in the summer, or
contingency planning
such as if the tower is
down for maintenance or
service. It also does not
address pressure issues
on the outside fringes of
the system.
The city had not
planned for a new tower


and therefore did not have
any money in reserve for
this. When I was on staff
there (former) Mayor
(James) Dunn asked me to
find some other sources to
help fund this. We worked
very hard with the DEP,
Eutaw Utilities, DCA and
the Governor's office on
this request. If successful
in the CDBG application
the city would have filled
this requirement and
built a new tower, with
no additional cost to the
citizens of Laurel Hill. In
that I am no longer with
the city of Laurel Hill I
am no longer responsible
for the decisions made
there; however this
saddens me greatly.
I sincerely hope this
decision made with a lot
of consideration because
I do not believe with the
current financial condition
of the state grants such as
this will be available in the
future.
Sincerely,
Tim Bolduc

School district
anticipates more cuts
Anticipating additional
state budget cuts, Okaloo-
sa County School District
officials are preparing for
more hard times.
The Florida School
Boards Association has
warned that an additional
2- to 3-percent budget cut
could be in store for this fis-
calyear. That is on top of the
2 percent already stripped
from local schools.
Okaloosa will be forced
to cut $1.9 million from its
budget for every 1 percent
in cuts handed down by the
state.
Cutting additional funds
after the first semester is

CHS grad Joe Thigpen helping BSC football program grow


Randy Dickson
Crestview News Bulletin

Former Crestview quar-
terback Joe Thigpen shakes
his head as he thinks about
how quickly the last 18
months have flown by.
Now a sophomore at
Birmingham Southern Col-
lege, Thigpen, who accord-
ing to the BSC Web site
turns 20 today, continues
excel on and off the football
field for the Panthers.
"It's been crazy," Thig-
pen said. "I can't believe
two seasons have gone by.
It's been a lot of fun.
' "It's challenging, but
fun. From a football stand-
point we've had two good
years of building a pro-
gram. I feel our guys really
came together as a team
this last season and bonded
as a unit."
The Panthers finished
the 2008 season with a 3-7
record, but that doesn't tell
the story of everything the
program went through this
year. The team endured a
coaching change and other
challenges.
"I'm proud of our team
and to call myself a part of
the team," Thigpen said.
"We've come a long ways.
We had to battle some
things.
"There were some team
issues, but we were able to
overcome some adversity
and push through. I think
that's really going to show
next year when my class is
juniors and we are able to
lead a little better.
Thigpen was part of
group of players called on
to reintroduce a football
program that had laid dor-
mant since 1939.
The Panthers have
suffered through grow-
ing pains playing in the
NCAA's Division III. But
being a member of an up-
start program did have
advantages. Thigpen was
able to step into the role
as starting quarterback as
a freshman. All he did in
that 2007 season-was earn
second-team All-Southern
Collegiate Athletic' Confer-
ence honors while putting

up more than 2,400 yards in
total offense and having a
hand in 21 touchdowns.
This past season he
continued to excel with an-
other 1,457 yards in offense
and eight TDs rushing to
go along with 10 scoring
passes.
He was named the SCAC
Player of the Week for his
performance against Se-
wanee. He had 251 yards
in total offense and two
touchdown passes to go


along with three rushing
touchdowns.
Thigpen described the
Panther offense as similar
to what Urban Meyer runs
at Florida. The Panthers
run a lot of option and dou-
ble option plays.
Joel Williams, the Bir-
mingham Southern offen-
sive coordinator and quar-
terbacks coach, jokes with
Thigpen about the offenses
being so similar.
"Coach always tells me


I'm our Tim Tebow," Thig-
pen said. "That's the way
he introduces me around
the area.
The BSC offense is noth-
ing like the one Thigpen ran
at Crestview, but he said he
learned a lot about playing
quarterback while under
center for the Bulldogs.
"Being at Crestview pre-
pared me for the concept
of the game and how to

NORTH END ZONE

Looking back on a year of new beginnings


Randy Dickson
Crestview.News Bulletin

As you read this column on Dec.
31, there are only a few hours left in
the year 2008.
What a year it has been.
A dear friend told me at the start
of the year this was a year of
new beginnings on the Jew-
ish calendar.
In many ways it has been.
New beginnings) for
football in north Okaloosa
County meant a return to the
playoffs for both Baker and
Crestview. RANDY I
What Bulldog fan will for- NorthDY
get the 2008 team? After a
slow start and some heart-
breaking losses the Dawgs found
themselves with a 2-4 record and very
much in danger of being an also-ran.
Things started to click seemingly
on cue. With Jordan Glover run-
ning hard and bringing people into
the box, the Bulldog passing attack
opened up. When Blake Ritchie hit
Chris Pickett for a late touchdown
against Fort Walton Beach, the tide
was turned.
The team went on to win four
straight and make the Class 4A play-
offs.
Bob Kellogg's fourth season as
the Bull Gator in Baker was equally
special. A group of seniors who grew
up in his program were ready to flex


I

En


some muscle as the Gators made
their run to the playoffs.
Quarterback Cameron Domangue
received a lot of the credit, but it was
definitely a team effort. Kellan Meeks,
Billy Whatmough, Marcus Jones,
Blake Bollinger and so many others
had a hand in the team's success.
Speaking of success and new be-
ginnings at Baker, it's doubtful
that anyone could have had a
better debut than first-year
volleyball coach Lisa Roy.
Roy took over for her for-
mer high school coach at
Baker, Kathy Combest. The
expectations were high as
ICKSON always. Roy and her troops
id Zone didn't disappoint. Baker won
the district and went on to re-
gional play.
Another former Gator got the nod
as the Crestview volleyball coach.
Ashley Miller laid a solid foundation
for the Dawgs' future in the tough
District 1-5A.
The Bulldogs didn't make the
playoffs, but they served notice that
in years to come they will be a team
to be reckoned with.
Staying with coaching changes at
Crestview, Keith White was named
the girls basketball coach. White,
the defensive coordinator for the
Crestview football team, previously
coached the Bulldog softball squad.
Speaking of the Crestview softball
squad, that program also has a new


coach. Former Niceville and Stetson
University standout Amy Peterson is
now calling the shots on the diamond.
In the next few weeks, as the softball
season gets closer, I'll be doing an ar-
ticle on Peterson to introduce her to
the community
Several Crestview baseball alumni
from the Class of 2006 made a splash
at various levels 6f the game.
Trey Hayes had a standout season
for Okaloosa-Walton College (now
Northwest Florida State College),
even as the Raiders struggled. Hayes
led the Raiders with 10 homers and
was second on the team with a .363
batting average.
His efforts didn't go unnoticed.
Hayes signed a scholarship to con-
tinue his playing career at Division I
Samford University in Birmingham,
Ala.
While Hayes was making his mark
on the Panhandle Conference, his old
teammate, Blake Dean, was making
a mark on the Southeastern Confer-
ence for Louisiana State.
Dean was one of the hottest hit-
ters in college baseball in April and
May as he led the Tigers to the Col-
lege World Series. He picked up All-
America honors along the way.
Another strong season by Dean
and he could be a first-round draft
pick in the June 2009 draft.

SPORTS LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Board of Directors needed to

continue Little League affiliation


Editor's note: Little
League, International
Florida District 1 District
Administrator Ron Covey
submitted this letter to the
Crestview News Bulletin.
There currently is not a
board of directors in place
for a Crestview Little
League affiliate.

Dear Little League sup-
porters;
On behalf of Little
League Baseball and Soft-
ball, I thank you for your
diligence and continued
support on behalf of the
Little League program.
Each year our district
staff does its best to retain
the existing leagues we
have in the Little League
program. It is important
that we continue to provide
our leagues with all of the
resources they need to be
successful and grow their
program.
Even with all of those
efforts, local leaders may
decide not to affiliate with
Little League for the fol-
lowing season. If that
situation occurs, it is ex-
tremely important for you
to know that Little League
is still available in your
community.
If local leadership in
your community or neigh-
borhood Little League
has chosen to affiliate
with a non-Little League
youth baseball or softball
program, you are not obli-
gated to follow that group's
direction.
Little League is avail-
able to any group willing to

assemble and assume the
responsibilities of a board
of directors. To affiliate
with Little League Base-
ball and Softball, the group
charged with operating
a Little League program
in your community must
have been elected by the
community it will serve
and charter with Little
League International.
If a neighborhood or
community where you
live no longer will be a
part of Little League, the
league's assets, including
the league name, remain
the property of the Little
League program.
Our district staff, as
well as staff in the Little
League International
League Development De-
partment in Williamsport,
Pa., is available to discuss
any questions regarding
the Little League affilia-
tion process. Please con-
tact us with any questions.
Again, thank you for
your support of Little
League, and for your as-
sistance and willingness
to provide the benefits of
Little league Baseball and
Softball to the children in
your community.
If you have any ques-
tions or concerns, please

trio, Anthony Brown, spent
his second season, in the mi-
nor leagues for the Cincin-
nati Reds, enjoying the sum-
mer in Billings, Mont.
Brown led his team in
homers and was among the
leaders in several offensive
categories. With a strong
showing in spring training
2009, Brown should con-
tinue his climb through the
Cincinnati farm system.
This year also saw Crest-
view's Matt Sanders sign a
scholarship to play football
for Clemson University.
The big offensive lineman
redshirted this year, but
should have a bright future
for the Tigers.
Sanders picked up a
prestigious local honor as
well. The All Sports Asso-
ciation named him its Male
Scholastic Award winner
for excellence in the class-
room, on the playing field
and in community service.
Things were busy as
usual in Laurel' Hill. Only
this year, a lot of the at-
tention shifted to baseball.


The Hoboes, under coach
Ronnie Smith, won a play-
off game for the first time
in more than 20 years.
Scott Varnum had the
LHS softball team in high
gear as well. The Hoboes
defended their district
championship.
Laurel Hill graduate
Brad Reese picked up
first-team All-Panhandle
Conference honors on the
hardwood for Gulf Coast.
Reese used his stellar
season to propel himself
to national attention. He
became one of the hottest
junior college prospects
in the nation. He finally
settled on and signed with
Texas Tech in November.
He will start playing for
the Red Raiders next sea-
son.
Brad isn't the only Re-
ese at Gulf Coast. Brother
Jeffery joined his older
sibling there this fall.
Jeffery was one of two
local hoopsters to sign with
Gulf Coast this year. Baker's
Chelsea Combest also inked

establish myself as a leader
from the quarterback posi-
tion," he said. "But as far
as the football aspects of
things, the offense we run
at Birmingham Southern
incorporates a lot more with
the flow of everything and
the decisions that have to be
made about getting the ball
to the running back, or wide
receiver, or checking off at
the line of scrimmage.
"It's a lot more of that
which comes with maturity
of the game. People in col-
lege can handle a lot more
in pressure situations
than those in high school
can because they've been
exposed to more."
Thigpen remembers his
job as the Bulldogs' quar-
terback was often to just
hand the ball to big John
Robinson or Calvin Siler.
Thigpen won't mention
it, but he did leave CHS
having thrown for more
yards than any other quar-
terback in the history of the
school.
"I look back and it was a
lot of fun," he said. "I wish
my senior year could have
ended a little differently (a
first-round loss in the play-
offs), but everybody does
unless you win it all."

Thigpen dreamed of
playing major college ball
when he was at Crestview.
When that didn't work out,
he wasn't one to hang his
head over his big dream
not coming true. When Bir-
mingham Southern called,
he jumped at the chance to
continue playing.
"I just went out there to
play and get another shot,"
he said. "I wasn't ready to
give football up when I left
Crestview."
Thigpen made the most
of the shot the Panthers
gave him as a freshman.
"I talked to coach Wil-
liams and I definitely
thought I could come in
there and compete (for the
starting quarterback job)
after being around some
of the other guys I would
be competing with," he
said. "I felt like it was an
accomplishment, achiev-
ing something that I set
out to do, because I am a
competitor.
"I don't like to be beat
at anything. At the same
time I wanted to help the
team any way I could."
Thigpen credits much
of his success to Williams.
"I can't say enough
about coach Williams," he


said. "Me and him have a
good relationship. Outside
of football I can go to his
office and we talk about
different things."
Even at the Division
III level college football is
a world removed from the
high school game. Making
the transition was easier
with some other Okaloosa
County products on the
team.
Former Baker star Da-
vid Langston has become
a threat as a kick returned
and receiver for the Pan-
thers. Former Niceville
tight end Brooks Perry is on
the squad.' So is Ryan Carl-
son, who played linebacker
at Fort Walton Beach.
"It's fun (having the
other local players around)
because we can relate a lot
to being from this area,"
he said. "It's just fun to get
together and talk about
things we used to do when
we were home and keep
that going. You miss home
sometimes when you are
up there.
"Most of the guys at Bir-
mingham Southern are from
the Birmingham area or
from Alabama. They always
give Florida guys a hard
time about coming from the

beach, but it's just fun."
It was also fun for Thig-
pen to give Carlson some
grief after the Bulldogs up-
set the Vikings this year.
"I didn't say much to
Ryan after Crestview beat
Fort Walton Beach, but I
did take a few jabs here
and there," he said. "We
are just so busy with stuff
we have to do we just don't
have much time.
"I wish I had more time
to keep up with Crestview,
but at the same time, we
do hold it over the each
others' heads talking high
school rivalries. It's just a
lot of fun."
Away from the field
Thigpen learned to bal-
ance and prioritize things
in his life academically, so-
cially and recreationally.
Like Florida's Tebow,
Thigpen also is a devout
Christian with a distinct
call from God on his life.
Thigpen has yet to de-
clare a major, but knows
he wants to attend semi-
nary and go into the min-
istry after he graduates
from college.
For now he's just enjoy-
ing being in college and
the city of Birmingham
with the culture, business
and worship opportunities.
He also enjoys being in a
location that is only a short
drive from the foothills of
the Appalachian mountain
chain with all the beauty of
nature.
As is the case with
most young men, Thigpen
is excited about what lies
ahead.
"My goal is to leave my
mark and legacy on Bir-
mingham Southern and
the people that go there,"
he said. "I want to be re-
membered as a warrior
on the football field and all
aspects of my life. In my
faith, in my studies.
"My focus is on being a
warrior and being some-
body that will be there on
the front line and make a
difference."
As he looks to his future,
Thigpen isn't one to lookback
at what might have been had
he been given the opportu-
nity to play big time ball.
"Florida was my dream,
but that's not what God
had in store for me," he
said. "We all can't be Divi-
sion I athletes, and I have
no regrets. I've done ev-
erything in my power to be
the best at what I do.
"I just love the game
and to be out there with
the guys and the lessons it
teaches. As brothers (on a
football team) you learn so
much through the game.
And you can learn that
anywhere - Division I,
Division III, NAIA - and
I've been blessed to have
that opportunity"

For me this has also
been a year to remem-

After more than seven
years with the Daily News I
was offered, and of course, ac-

the most part, I've loved ev-

Finally, as many of you
might recall, I turned 50
in May. In some ways I'm
still coping with that. Con-
sidering the alternatives, I
can't complain.
In the middle of all this
I know I've missed some-
one's favorite memory, but
it's not intentional.
Yes, it's been a year to
remember, good and bad,
happy and sad.

'Eco-Nomic Living

Aerospace companies

finding success in

Northwest Florida


TEAM Santa Rosa

More than 200 aerospace
and defense companies are
finding success already in
this burgeoning aerospace
and defense industry clus-
ter on Florida's Panhandle.
The tri-county area of
Escambia, Santa Rosa and
Okaloosa counties formed
the Gulf Coast Aerospace
and Defense (GCAD) cor-
ridor in July to engage the
global aerospace and de-
fense market and train the
eye of the world on the Gulf
Coast.
The goals of the GCAD
initiative are to create jobs
in the aerospace and de-
fense sector by attracting
new industry, helping exist-
ing industry grow, encour-
aging entrepreneurship
and recruiting new talent to
the region.
It's a region poised to
become the world's new
aerospace and defense
hub as the home to key
military bases, suppliers,
support companies, pre-
mier research facilities and
various other players in the
aerospace and defense in-
dustry. They are working in
tandem with companies lo-
cated next door and around
the world.
The GCAD corridor
also boasts access and in-
frastructure, trained work-
force, low cost of doing
business, and an unbeat-
able quality of life. These
features all combine to
make the Gulf Coast re-
gion a natural destination
for aerospace and defense
companies in the market to
expand or relocate.
The region's ongoing
push to create optimal con-
ditions for creative, knowl-
edge-based businesses
mean the Gulf Coast Aero-
space and Defense corridor
is fast becoming an emerg-
ing force in the Innovation
Economy.
The area already pos-
sesses a breadth and depth
of experience in aerospace
and defense. Plus, with nu-
merous bases across the
three counties, every com-
munity in Northwest Florida
has a long-standing history
with aviation and technol-
ogy. Generations of the na-
tion's military families have
grown up in the Panhandle
while stationed at Eglin Air
Force Base, Whiting Field,
Hurlburt Field and Pensac-
ola Naval Air Station.
The proximity of major
bases serving all branches
of the armed services, in-
cluding Eglin, the largest
base in the country, means
companies in the tri-county
area are able to work closely
with end-line users, which
can optimize and stream-


line the development pro-
cess.
"Even in a global econ-
omy, you can't replace the
one-to-one relationship,"
said Larry Sassano, presi-
dent of the Economic Devel-
opment Council of Okaloosa
County. "You can conduct
business electronically or
by phone, but still the most
critical element is to have
that one-to-one relation-
ship. You have to have that
face-to-face meeting."
The major military in-
stallations in the region
also mean the area has
one of the nation's largest
concentrations of military
retirees, who represent a
well-trained and stable po-
tential workforce. There
are approximately 30,000
military and another 30,000
defense-support personnel
between NAS Pensacola,
Whiting Field, Hurlburt
Field and Eglin.
Area colleges also fortify
the workforce. Accommo-
dating more than 27,000 stu-
dents, the University of West
Florida, Okaloosa Walton
College, Pensacola Junior
College, Locklin Technical
School, West Florida Tech-
nical School and George
Stone Technical Center all
have main campuses in the
region. The University of
Florida, Virginia College,
and Troy University also
have branches in the area.
Okaloosa County developed
and launched the critically
acclaimed CHOICE pro-
gram, a unique educational
program created in con-
junction with Embry-Riddle
Aeronautical University, that
offers high school students
high school credit, college
credit and nationally recog-
nized industry certification
- all at the same time.
The Gulf coast's beach-
es, history, climate, low cost
of living and culture make
it an easy sell for drawing
companies expanding or
relocating and for attracting
top talent.
The same geography and
climate that makes the area
ideal for the military bases
makes it an excellent trade
center. Northwest Florida is
ideally positioned for global
trade with deepwater ports
and an international airport
currently under construc-
tion in Panama City.
The area also has wide
range of industrial parks
and properties with sub-
stantial infrastructure in
place, and tracts primed for
development. Area parks
are easily accessible to in-
terstates, airports, railways,
and seaports, with existing
facilities in place and prop-
erty sizes ranging from less
than an acre to hundreds of
acres.
