The rst ordinance would allow Sunday alco hol sales beginning at 10 a.m. at eating places and restaurants that regularly serve full meals. The sec ond ordinance would allow alcohol sales at the Crest view Community Center, Warriors Hall and Old Spanish Trail Park by nonprot organizations and for ofcially sponsored city functions. Council members sat politely while opponents again spoke out against the measures, then, without discussion, voted unani mously to approve both or dinances.

MAXIME QUEMENER | Crestview News BulletinAdvertorial by Paula Kelley paulak@crestviewbulletin.com Lewis and Co. owner Keith Lewis combined his three loves of football, jewelry and the community he serves to come up with a unique jewelry piece that will soon go on sale. To help raise funds for the Crestview High School cheerleaders, Lewis designed silver-barreled charms made by the Chamilia Company. The bracelet charms that feature CHS lettering on one side and a Bulldog paw print on the other will soon be available for purchase at the Lewis and Co. store, located on State Road 85 north of the Stillwell Boulevard intersection. I love this town; its my home and I wanted to do something unique, Lewis said. When we found out that we could get local collegiate charms, the prospect for a CHS charm began. I am very glad to support CHS in this way, it ts us and it ts them. The charms will be available at the store throughout football season for $40 each. CHS cheerleaders will also have cards that provide information about the charms for those who are interested. The charms can be bought as created or used as inspiration for those wishing to create their own. The Chamilia line has several charms available in their line that t the Bulldog theme. One is solid silver, with paw prints on the sides, while another features a carved ligree paw print. Both are representative of the sidewalk leading up to the front of the high school. A charm with a dangling dog bone is available, as is another featuring a shiny pink paw print bead. Chamilia is a new line for Lewis and Co. The nely crafted European charm bracelets feature charms in 14 karat gold, sterling silver, Italian Murano glass and Swarovski crystals embellishments and roundelles. Others are mosaic, have hollow ligree, hold pearls or birthstones. The idea behind the charms is to give a personalized look for every customer, creating a way for women to express themselves, their passions, interests and style in a meaningful way. Choosing charms that t interests, events, special occasions or themes make individual looks for each bracelet. By Brian Hughes brianh@crestviewbulletin.com With work completed on its rst major facelift in many years, Northview Plaza merchants and their customers are anticipating the arrival of their newest neighbor. Since refurbishment began, rumors had circulated that a dinner-and-movie type theater might be opening in the space previously occupied by the Crestview Cinema 3. Rumor solidied into fact when plaza manager Walt Horst recently conrmed that the owners of Crestviews rst shopping mall, the Northview Plaza LLC partnership, were signing a lease with three partners from Destin and Fort Walton Beach to open just such an establishment in the center. Its going to be something like a suds-n-cinema, Horst Dinner and a movie Northview Plaza refurbishment complete; suds-n-cinema coming to Cinema 3 site Photos by PAULA KELLEY | News Bulletin Crestview High School cheerleaders showing their CHS Chamilia bracelets are (kneeling left to right) Richaley Harrison, Alexis Autrey, Kayla Pigott, Christina Miracle, Kayla Chenette, Dominique Acol (standing left to right) Alicia from Lewis and Co., Elizabeth Bass, Shelby Gainer, Nicole Lindon, Rylee Hritz, Katie Cook, Jenna Paylor, Haley Dukes, Alex Berry, Kayla Stewart, Ashley Guthrie and Charles Ann from Lewis and Co.

On Thursday, Aug. 25, the eighth annual Healthy Woman celebration dinner was a beautiful occasion with delicious food. Speaker Abby Rike was delightful and kept us entertained, while giving good tips on healthy living. Kathleen McMichael (the lady wearing the pretty hat) and I have enjoyed several of these events at the Crestview Community Center. We are proud of our Laurel Hill support group facilitator, Carolyn Williams, as one of the special workers who make this event enjoyable. Healthy Woman is a North Okaloosa Medical Center resource staffed by compassionate leaders of our community to help young women stay healthy. As usual it was well attended and appreciated by the community and donors for a worthy cause. On Monday, Aug. 15, my brother and my daughter pulled a big surprise on me. Ray had met Linda when she arrived on one of the Vision Airlines planes from Atlanta. While I was visiting with Doug, they arrived to my scream of joy! I like surprises like that. Tuesday was my 84th birthday, and we started out with breakfast at Cracker Barrel with Pastor Michael Braswell. We continued the celebration as women like to celebrate... at the mall! Oh yes, we had lunch and dinner out before returning to the Hill. My favorite grandson, married to my only granddaughter, sang my first birthday song in his beautiful voice via cell phone while we were out shopping. We often headed to Laurel Hill with takeout boxes from lunch and bags of bargains from My Sisters Closet, where shopping is delightful! Owner Cynthia Harris offers designer clothing and accessories, consignment and a rental boutique. Located in Kellies Plaza, across from Moultons Pharmacy, Cynthia and Lisa, sales manager, offer brand new wedding gowns at half price, mother of the bride gowns, bridal veils, and tux rentals. For more information call 683-9400. Before Linda departed for Atlanta we had lunch with a group of ladies at The Barons Tea House, a perfect ending to her weeks visit. We meet every other Tuesday at 11 a.m. for the special of the day, London tea. Robin was our server with smiles and gracious service. The dessert of the day was awesome. Visit soon and enjoy tea, iced or hot, with delicious food. Ring Erica at 3988783. Thus began the week of festivities, ending on Tuesday of this week when Linda boarded a Vision Airlines plane and headed for Atlanta. She enjoyed the short flights on this friendly airline. I am back to the normal quiet life on the Hill with very happy memories! I claim this year as the best ever and look forward to the big number 85, Lord willing, next year! The Red Hat Society ladies enjoyed lunch at Silvercrest Manor with resident Red Hat ladies on Thursday of last week. Lunch was beautifully served on tables covered in red. We appreciate their invitation and the live entertainment offered by our favorite singer, Max Soelzer, songwriter, recording artist and musician from Gulf Breeze. His rendition of happy birthday for me was lovely. Thank you Max! Max generously shares his talent with visits to nursing homes. He returns once a month with his guitar and Elvis voice to Silvercrest Manor. For bookings and more information ring 450-0872 or 9320437. Visit his website at musicwithmax.com.

Lo cal Elks Lodge members and representatives of the Old Spanish Trail Festival turned out in force in sup port of liberalizing the citys alcohol policies. We have quite a few people here tonight and I think some of them have something to say, Council President Charles Baugh Jr. observed. I know anything I say is not going to change yalls mind, resident Willard Wil son, an opponent of the or dinances, said. I could roll over and play dead on this issue and there are some that wish I would. Eugene Strickland, rep resenting the Crestview Area Ministerial Associa tion of 40 area churches, presented a petition signed by the groups ofcers re questing the ordinances be presented to the citizens for a public vote. Our interests are not more money for the city, to do it like other cities do it, or to compete with the county or other municipalities, but the safety of our families, Strickland said. Alcohol con sumption has no redeeming value or benet. Proponents of changing the citys alcohol law, how ever, said allowing alcohol sales will enhance commu nity events. Doing this will allow us to have functions that people will want to come to, Old Spanish Trail Festival repre sentative Cindy OLoughlin said. Alcohol sales and con sumption, she said, can be segregated. You can have family-oriented fun but you can have alcohol there, too. It can be done and it can be done safely. Why do you want to make our city parks a bar? Wilson asked. If theyre go ing to have a fence to fence it off, doesnt that tell you that theres something wrong with it? Angela Ferdon-Cotton, also representing the Old Spanish Trail Festival, as well as the Crestview Elks Lodge, said that knowing al cohol will be sold at an event would attract vendors and entertainers, who in turn would draw a bigger crowd, attracting more vendors and entertainers to subsequent events. Its not just the beer thing to bring in these en tertainers to make a festival. Its the economy, FerdonCotton said. People know theyre selling beer, they know theres a different crowd coming in. Its going to snowball. I dont want it to have to go to a referendum and the city to have to pay for it, Ferdon-Cotton added. After closing the public hearing portion of the de bate, Baugh reminded the audience and council mem bers that the issue has been debated for several months before Mondays nal vote. We have spent many workshops and quite a num ber of hours on hearing the input both by electronic emails, messages left on doors, and citizens coming to our workshops to express their concerns, Baugh said. The ve of us here, we have been elected to be the voice of the people. Matters deal ing with ordinances are en trusted with the council to making these decisions for them. Councilman Phillip Ber ezo moved to approve the sales hours ordinance, sec onded by Councilman Ben Iannucci. Iannucci moved to approve the sale of alcohol at city-owned venues, sec onded by Berezo. Both ordi nances passed unanimously to the applause of support ers and stoic silence by op ponents. CRESTVIEWS NEW ALCOHOL POLICY Once signed by Crestview City Council President Charles Baugh Jr., deputy clerk Patti Beebe and Mayor David Cadle, Ordinance 1468 will allow alcohol sales Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. until 4 a.m. the next morning, and from 10 a.m. until 4 a.m. the next morning in eating places and restaurants that regularly serve full meals. Ordinance 1469 would allow alcohol sales at the Crestview Community Center, Warriors Hall and Old Spanish Trail Park by non-prot organizations and for ofcially sponsored city functions. The ordinance species that, Commercial groups shall be prohibited from applying for the use of any outdoor facility or park that would include the consumption or sale of alcohol. Saturday, August 27, 2011 M A X I M E QU E M ENER | Crestview News Bulletin Eugene Strickland, representing the Crestview Area Ministerial Association, hands city council members copies of the organizations petition against liberalizing the citys alcohol sales ordinances. Bracelets are offered in silver, cord lariats, braided multi-wrap leather or single metallic coloration leather with a snap enclosure. Charms are secured in any order customers prefer. Spacers are available to make each bead more distinguishable and give a continuity to the bracelet design; however, abstract and unique are just as vogue. Solid Murano glass and painted design beads add color to the silver or gold charms chosen for a bracelet. Chamilia bracelets are as unique as the ones who wear them. Chamilia charms are also interchangeable with other European charm bracelets like Pandora, Ohm and Trollbeads. Multiple charms and bracelets can be worn together and are a seasonal musthave for fall fashions and allow the owner to design their own pieces, according to promotional material.

The mall looks real nice now, and Im so excited were going to have a suds-ncinema, said Kathie Folley, an employee of Avas Jewelry Boutique in Northview Plaza. Were going to be just about full up. After the Fox Theatre closed on Main Street in the 1970s, the Crestview Cinema 3 was the only movie house in town. Many Crestview junior high school English classes remember attending special screenings of Franco Zefrellis lavish lm adaptation of Romeo and Juliet at the cinema, where a brief shot of Leonard Whitings naked rump always elicited titters. Eyes have turned toward the vacant space on the south wing of the 1975 shopping center, which was originally called Mariner Mall, that the movie house occupied until soon after the rival Marquis Cinema opened on Richbourg Lane in May 2010. With the new theater showing rstrun features, the Crestview Cinema 3 remained open as a discount theater for several months, showing second-run lms and attracting patrons who didnt wish to pay full admission to see the hottest new icks as soon as they came out. More informal, suds-n-cinema movie theaters often have lounge furniture or caf seating instead of auditorium seating, and frequently have small tables around which moviegoers can sit and enjoy a meal with their movie. Meals are more substantial fare than popcorn and Raisenettes, and pitchers of beer are sometimes served in addition to sodas and Icees. Northviews newest tenants have hung a sign naming the new facility Movies & More, but Horst said a menu or program of lms have not been disclosed. In similar cinemas in other communities, including Fort Walton Beachs Cinema Plus, food often includes pizza, sub sandwiches, hotdogs and nachos. Some offer service at patrons tables or self-service. Films are generally second-run recent features, classic movies and foreign lms. Local movie buffs are intrigued by the concept. One fan, who gave his name as Brian Cruikshank while waiting in line at the Marquis to buy tickets to the new Harry Potter lm, said Crestview needs a place to enjoy classic old movies. Some of those great old lms need to be seen up on the big screen to really be appreciated, Cruikshank said. Your home TV just doesnt cut it. Id gladly pay to see Gone With the Wind or The Great Escape on a real movie screen. The foods a good idea, too, as long as nobody smacks their lips when they eat.

The group is in their 17th year with their annual Redneck Parade, which begins at 1 p.m. and raises money for Christmas gifts for economically disadvantaged students in the local schools. Sunny Moulder, BonreJams director of operations, announced this week that Josh Turner is the headliner, with another artist announcement soon to follow. The concert site is located in the center of the parade route adjacent to the Chumuckla Athletic Center, Moulder said. The parade will begin at the cotton gin. It is reversed it ended at the cotton gin the last few years. This parade started as a joke between two old boys here in town and turned into a real parade, said Robbie Foster, from the Athletic Association. We have a yearly T-shirt that is a big seller and then the parade entry fee and concessions prot that we take and buy Christmas for kids from Chumuckla, Central and Jay who need a Santa. The parade traditionally has more than 100 entrants, with oats, beauty queens, tractors, goat drawn carts, horses, mud-encrusted trucks, four-wheelers and riding lawn mowers. This year will be the rst year for judging. The entrant voted best by the judges will have a special place of honor at BonreJam. Joe Lewis created BonreJam. He graduated from Milton High School in 1986 and went on to a successful career in television production, events and staging on the West Coast. Joe comes home often to visit his mother and wanted to do something to give back to the community, organizers said. He founded a scholarship program at his alma mater that recognizes students with unique potential through his website www.big-dreams. org.

Local Crestview News Bulletin | A5 By Maxime Quemener The Crestview News Bulletin For three years the Crestview police and the re departments have been tied into a statewide communication system, but the only time they will need it is during a disaster. When Okaloosa County obtained a federal grant to join the Statewide Law Enforcement Radio System (SLERS), a single, unied network created to meet the radio voice communications needs of Floridas law enforcement agencies, part of the grant funds were used to provide Crestview police and re with radios to link up with the SLERS. The city is in the process of updating its SLERS-compatible radios and replacing them with newer models. SLERS was launched to improve communication between the different state agencies and to avoid a 9/11 situation like that experienced in New York when police and re departments, using different frequencies and equipment, were unable talk to each other to coordinate their actions. Crestview public safety ofcials agree that the SLERS can be a very useful tool, in extraordinary situations, but will not be used for everyday calls. We will use it at the time of a hurricane or tornado, or if we go provide support in another part of the state, Police Chief Brian Mitchell said. This is only going to be used for emergencies. Its not a replacement for normal operations. The Crestview Fire Department doesnt make a really extensive use of the SLERS either. The main reason is that SLERS radios dont produce alert tones. When the re department is called out, a dispatcher activates a distinct tone to alert the closest station to the re. We use the SLERS to share information about disaster, not to call for help, re Chief Joe Traylor said. To do that, we use regular radios. That means we have to maintain both systems. Thats an additional cost but it offers us more exibility. In addition, SLERS is not a nationwide universal communications system. Should Crestviews emergency responders have to provide mutual aid assistance in Alabama or Georgia, for example, they would be more likely to use their cell phones, Mitchell said. Statewide, however, responders can communicate with each other on SLERS. Traylor said SLERS radios are not only three times the price of regular radio equipment, but the county also has to pay a monthly system maintenance fee for each radio. Its like a cellphone: you buy it and then you pay for using it, Traylor said. 6512850 Nothing Runs Like A Deere 9 6 2 6 5 3 0 0 2 0 8 0 D B U C 4 7 D 0 ELIGIBILITY: U.S. Citizens living in the Florida Panhandle, 59 years and older, not presently under our care.

6512981 By Brian Hughes brianh@crestviewbulletin.com With city budgets run ning at what one depart ment head called scrap ing-by mode, county and state funds at their lowest in years, and federal grants drying up, Crestview city leaders think they may have stumbled upon an as-yet untapped revenue source: City visitors. Mark Bellinger, direc tor of the Okaloosa Coun ty Tourist Development Council (TDC), told the city council at its Aug. 22 meeting that Crestview is a prime candidate to partici pate in the countys lodg ing tax program. Exploit ing the source wouldnt cost Crestview taxpayers a penny. It is paid 100 percent by the visitors who stay in your hotels, he said. Council President Charles Baugh Jr. had raised the issue of Crest views participation in the program with county of cials. Not being a beach community, however, the Hub City wouldnt be able to share the revenue gen erated by south county ho tels, he was told. The solution, Bell inger told the council, is to become a sub-district of the TDC and raise the citys own bed tax. Cur rently, Crestview area ho tels charge their guests the states 6 percent sales tax. By adding a tax of its own on top of the state tax, Crestview could reap the additional revenue. Right now, visitors 6 percent (tax) goes to Tal lahassee, Bellinger ex plained. If you want to pursue this, you can go to 7, 8 or maybe 9 percent. Bellinger said the aver age national lodging tax was 12.2 percent in 2009, the last year for which gures are available. The south end of the county as sesses an 11 percent tax. By local ordinance, each penny of the tax has a spe cic designation. By state statute, the money raised must go to ward projects beneting tourists and their Crest view experience, Bellinger said. Marketing and ad vertising Crestview and its events, including festi vals such as the Music and Arts on Main Street series, Triple-B, and Fall Festival, would be a prime example of how the funds could be used, he said. In addition, the funds can be used to build facili ties that would attract tour ists, Bellinger said, such as a sports complex pro posed by Council Member Ben Iannucci, or a cultural arts center dreamed of by the Okaloosa Arts AllianceNorth committee. Many of our citizens would like to see some im proved services at no cost to the citizens, Baugh said. It would be funded solely by tourists coming to our area and using our hotels. Becoming a TDC subdistrict would require ap proval by the city council, then by the county commis sion. If approved by both bodies, the proposal would then go before Crestview voters. Bellinger said that preliminary discussions with county commission indicate support for Crest views participation. I think it would be a 5-0 vote, Bellinger said. You would get a lot of support from the county. If the plan is approved, the TDC would handle the Crestview bed tax col lection, distributing the funds to the city. Bellinger stressed that revenue raised in Crestview would stay in Crestview. Were not going to take a percentage of it for the south side; its your mon ey, he said. Council Member Robyn Helt moved to proceed with exploring the propos al further, saying she had previously wondered why Crestview hadnt utilized TDC bed tax revenues. This is untapped mon ey, Helt said. This is an untapped resource that the city of Crestview has not participated in in the past. After the motion passed unanimously, Baugh again stressed that local taxpay ers, unless they spent a night in a local hotel, would not pay into the TDC rev enue. It does not cost the citi zens of Crestview one pen ny, he said. Its a win for the citizens of Crestview. It would provide something that is meaningful for our citizens. Crestview wakes up to bed tax City might become a TDC sub-district MAXIME QUEMENER | Crestview News Bulletin Okaloosa County Tourist Development Council Director Mark Bellinger spoke to the Crestview City Council about having the city participate in the countys lodging tax program. Derek Kravitz AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON (AP) The number of Americans at risk of foreclosure is ris ing, reecting the U.S. economys continued struggles. The Mortgage Bankers Association said Monday that 8.44 percent of hom eowners missed at least one mortgage payment in the April-June quar ter. That gure, which is adjusted for seasonal fac tors, rose 0.12 percentage point from the January to March period. In a normal market, the percentage of delin quent borrowers is about 1.1 percent, according to the trade group. Delinquent mortgages have plummeted from a record high of more than 10 percent of residential mortgages a year ago. But the decline is due partly to delays in foreclo sure lings that are back logged in several state courts, including Florida, New Jersey, Illinois and New York. The end of a state and federal investigation into faulty foreclosure paper work will likely lead to increased foreclosures later this year. Analysts say the in crease is especially wor risome because its due mainly to high unemploy ment, which tends to raise the number of missed payments and foreclo sures over time. And once delayed foreclosures are restarted, the economy could suffer a hit. The current process ing delays mean this will not happen quickly, un derlining our view that both the housing market and the economy will remain weak for a few years, said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics. The quarterly survey covers nearly 88 percent of primary residential mortgages totaling nearly 44 million loans. Special to the News Bulletin According to recent reports, Hurri cane Irene is fast approaching the Atlantic coast and will only become stronger as it moves north. Irene is just the rst hurri cane of a long season that will surely see many more storms, so what steps should prudent consumers take with the trees in their landscape? HURRICANES AND VIOLENT STORMS It is important that people who live in East and Gulf coastal areas be prepared, says Tchukki Ander sen, staff arbor ist with the Tree Care Industry As sociation. Even people in the upper Midwest should heed the warning. Right now, get your trees as ready as they can be to sur vive a major storm. Dont wait un til the storm is headed your way. One of the greatest dangers to life and property during hurricanes is posed by falling trees and limbs. Growing trees could catch more wind and be more susceptible to increased chances of failure, explains Andersen. Preparing trees for a natural disaster is a must and should be done well in advance of the storm season. To help ease these dan gers, have a professional arborist evaluate your trees. Doing this will help you deter mine potential weaknesses and dangers. Look at your trees for the following warning signs: Wires in contact with tree branches. Trees may become energized when they are contacted by electric wires. Dead or partially attached limbs hung up in the higher branches that could fall and cause damage or injury. Cracked stems and branch forks that could cause catastrophic failure of a tree section. Hollow or decayed ar eas on the trunk or main limbs, or mushrooms growing from the bark that indicate a de cayed and weakened stem. Peeling bark or gaping wounds in the trunk also indicate structural weakness. Fallen or uprooted trees putting pressure on other trees beneath them. Tight, V-shaped forks, which are much more prone to fail ure than open U-shaped ones. Heaving soil at the tree base is a po tential indicator of an unsound root sys tem. Remember, too, that a tree is a living thing, and its integrity and stability change over time, so dont assume that a tree that has survived nine severe storms will nec essarily survive a 10th.

If you would like to submit a story or have a story idea, please email it to sports editor Randy Dickson at randyd@ crestviewbulletin.com. By Randy Dickson randyd@crestviewbulletin.com The Ryan Gillis era as the Shoal River Middle School football coach ofcially begins Thursday night when the Mustangs take on cross-town rival Davidson at Jack Foster Stadium. Gillis, the former SRMS defen sive coordinator, is excited about the prospects of this years Mus tang squad. Weve got some experience, he said. Weve got some size. Man for man, I think we are going to match up with anybody we play as far as size-wise. We are excited about our foot ball team. Im excited about the summer practices we had, and Im excited about these kids. I think we are going to put a great prod uct on the eld, and I would hope people will come out and watch. Perhaps no player on the Mus tang roster excites Gillis more than quarterback Corey Arm strong. Im not trying to step on any bodys toes, but weve probably got the best quarterback weve ever had, Gillis said. He can throw the ball well and can run the ball well. Hes about 185 pounds, and hes a quarterback in a fullbacks body. Hes one of our strongest kids on our football team. I think the sky is the limit with him. If Armstrong goes down, Bry ant Berry will take over under center. Malique Studevan, who will start at tailback, only weighs 100 pounds, but he has the speed to go the distance any time he gets to the outside. Malcolm Galbreath is the backup tailback, and he, too, has breakaway speed. The Mustangs will be big at fullback with 220-pound Tashar Skinner getting the starting spot. Devin Wimmer and Marcus Fla vors also will see time at fullback. When Flavors isnt at fullback, hell be at tight end. Joining him in the mix at tight end are Xavier Pace and Cameron Gillis. Pace is expected to be the backup tight end, and Gillis will be the third op tion there. The Mustang receivers will be Berry, Alik Whited and Dayton Gragg. Logan Thayer, a transfer from North Carolina who arrived with the Special Forces, will get the start at left tackle. At 220-230 pounds, Thayer gives the Mus tangs an anchor on the offensive line. Hes a big kid, Gillis said. Hes a strong kid. And he really likes to go get (block) lineback ers. Thayer will be joined up front by Logan Fox at left guard, Colter Hancock at center, Tyler Webb at right guard and Aaron Ferguson at right tackle. Hancock is a straight-A stu dent and is responsible for making sure the other linemen know their blocking assignments. Austin Hemphill is Hancocks backup. At 150 pounds, Webb is the smallest lineman, but hes also one of the strongest players on the team. The Mustangs will run a 4-4 defense with Thayer and Fergu son manning the interior spots at tackle. Grag and Galbreath will be at end. Outside linebackers are Arm strong and Wimmer. Inside line backers are Skinner and Flavors. Studevan will handle the safe ty spot. Berry, Whited and Juvar Moorer are the mix for the other spots in the secondary. Gillis likes what he has seen from his team, but he knows the Mustangs ultimately will be judged by how they do against Da vidson. It think its a great rivalry, he said. There is no animos ity coaching-wise (with Davidson coach Chris Small) or personally. When you get on the eld, hes still your friend, and there is no body you want to beat worse than your friend. I would love to say this is the year we beat them, but you can never do that, but I like our chanc es. We are right there, if we are not there. Davidson riding on back-to-back championships, 18-game win streak By Randy Dickson randyd@crestviewbulletin.com Winning has not only become the expectation at Davidson Middle School, but a way of life. The Panthers havent lost a game since late in the 2008. They are riding an 18game winning streak and have won the last two Okaloosa County middle school championships. Panther head coach Chris Small tries not to make too much of the respective streaks. If you are at the high school, college or pro level, it is a ton of pressure, but when you are at the middle school level, its whatever you want to make it, he said. You do get a mindset that we expect to go out and win and hopefully you do. Right now we have been fortunate to be on the winning end. We just try to teach the fundamentals and give the kids a strong base to learn from and coach the best we can. It helps that we have had good players. In recent years, the Panthers have more or less been in a reloading rather than rebuilding mode. The key to the reloading seems to have been the tailback position, where two years ago Jaylynne Robinson carried the load and last year Emmanuel Reed and Shikim Coward gave the Panthers a dynamic one-two punch. It remains to be seen if this years running backs can live up to their predecessors, but Small likes the guys he has in the backeld. We have some good ones (backs) we are excited about, he said. Demarian Knotts is the one kid that did get some signicant playing time last year, and we are excited about him. Nkosi Seals and Antryon Gloster, we expect a lot of big things from them too. And our fullback we are looking at is Dylan Locke. Alex Maxwell moves from last years scout team quarterback to this years starter. He really did a great job leading our scout team last year and getting us ready for the game Thursday night, Small said. Hes one of the toughest kids Ive ever seen. He just took a beating last year and got up every time. Hes a very smart kid, and he throws it pretty well. Maxwell will be throwing the ball to wide receivers Montae Barto and Latarian Hilliard. Jeffery Toney and K.K. McTear, niece of Baker sprint legend Houston McTear, also could see some playing time. Matt French and Cameron McKinney will play tight end. Taron Akins and Shawn Cutchins are battling for the center position. Guards are Kayla Fontenot, Dalton Banach and Travis Wiljakainen. Harrison Robins will start at one tackle and the other tackle is still up for grabs. Small said that most of the summer has been spent working on the offense and that things are more unsettled on defense. Bryce Larkins is getting a look at linebacker, as are Locke and French. Knotts and McKinney are expected to get some work on the line. A.G. Traywick, Austin Polk, Gloster and Seals will be in the secondary. Small knows everyone will be gunning for Davidson, but hes got a close eye on cross-town rival Shoal River under rst-year coach Ryan Gillis. Ryan is going to be excited, Small said. Hes going to be pumped up. Hes going to get his kids pumped up. Hes going to try a stamp on his own team. Weve got to win the Shoal River game. Its going to be a good one.

Mayor David Cadle City of Crestview Welcome to Kickoff 2011, the annual football publica tion of the News Bulletin. Another football season is upon us. In a few days the regular season kicks off when Baker hosts South Walton and Crestview trav els to Milton to take on the Panthers. This season there are a lot of developments in the local football scene that in clude coaching and district changes. The coaching carousel started when Baker coach Bob Kellogg retired. Matt Brunson, a Baker graduate, left Crestview to return to his alma mater, opening the door for Kevin Pettis, who arrived in Crestview from DeLand. The arrival of Pettis set things in motion for one last change as Chris Sweatt left Shoal River Middle School to accept a job as the quar terbacks coach at Crestview. Longtime Mustang assis Its football time! tant coach Ryan Gillis replaces Sweatt at the helm of the Mustangs. And nally, Steve Combest will be coaching the Baker middle school program this year. The district change isnt quite as complicated. Baker is in the new Dis trict 1-1A rural classica tion, along with Freeport, Jay and Northview. The old District 2-4A is now District 2-6A. Crest view is joined in the district by county rivals Choc tawhatchee, Fort Walton Beach and Niceville. Mosley and Navarre round out the district. In the pages that fol low you will nd plenty of information about local high school teams Baker and Crestview, as well as the middle school teams of Baker, Davidson and Shoal River. All of the varsity, junior varsity and middle school schedules are included. We have team and cheerleader photos as well. We will break down the districts and look at who might be the contenders and who might be the pre tenders. And Ill go out on the limb to make my fear less prediction of each game in the upcoming season. Youll also nd my an nual reections of what high school football means to me. We hope that you will nd this publication infor mative and useful and that it will enhance your football experience this year. I guess the only thing left to say is, its football time in north Okaloosa County. Enjoy. Randy Dickson is the Crestview News Bulletin Sports Editor.

TIME TO SHINE: North Okaloosa Football 2011 Crestview News Bulletin | 3 Saturday, August 27, 2011 By Randy Dickson randyd@crestviewbulletin.com What football lurks in the hearts of fans? The Randinator knows. Come with me now as I look into my synthetic leather football I call Wilson as I try to predict the outcome of this years games involving Baker and Crestview. Sept. 2 South Walton at Baker: When these teams last met in the spring game it was D.J. Thomas scoring on a 70-yard run to give the Gators a 14-10 win over the Seahawks. Spring games might not count in the standings, but the win by Baker should give the Gators the condence they need to give head coach Matt Brunson his rst win at his alma mater. Crestview at Milton: This game features two new coaches at their respective schools mak ing their regular season debuts. Chafan Marsh, a Milton grad who played with Brett Favre at South ern Mississippi, gets his rst shot at leading a program. Crestviews Kevin Pettis has won everywhere hes coached. The 27-21 win by Crestview was the third straight for the Dawgs over the Panthers. Crestview makes it four straight over Milton with a season opening win. Sept. 9 Baker at Rocky Bay ou Christian: This game could get ugly in a hurry. The Gators will be too strong for the Knights and im prove to 2-0 as they roll to an easy win. Escambia at Crestview: Es cambia is the school that produced NFL Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith and a current Heisman Trophy contender in Alabama running back Trent Richardson. The Ga tors dont have a Smith or Rich ardson this year, but will be a good test for the Bulldogs in their home opener. That said, the Randinator likes the Bulldogs as Crestview moves to 2-0. Sept. 16 Baker at Holmes County: The Gators take a short trip east to take on the Blue Devils out of District 3-1A. Baker contin ues its early season success and goes to 3-0 with a win in Bonifay. Crestview at Jacksonville Bolles: This game will be the rst big test for Crestview under the direction of Kevin Pettis. Bolles is always a perennial contender for district and state championships and has won ve titles since 2000. The Bulldogs taste defeat for the rst time in a close one. Sept. 23 West Gadsden at Baker: Matt Brunson scheduled the Panthers the last several years he was at Crestview, so it was only natural that he continued a longstanding relationship with West Gadsden. The playing eld will be a little more level for the 1A Pan thers against the 1A Gators, but Baker should win to move to 4-0. Catholic at Crestview: The big question will be how the Bulldogs will respond after their rst loss of the season. My guess is they will respond very well. Catholic will still be breaking in a new quarter back to replace Shaun White, who is now at Middle Tennessee State. I really dont know if White would make a difference in this one as I expect the Bulldogs to roll to a big win. Sept. 30 Bozeman at Baker: Will the Bucks stop the streaking Gators? I dont think so. Bozeman will offer a good test, but playing in the friendly connes of Doug Grifth Memorial Stadium should be the difference, as Baker re mains perfect. Godby at Crestview: The home-standing Bulldogs get one nal test before starting District 26A play. The Bulldogs pass the test and improve to 4-1. Oct. 7 Baker at Freeport: It is put up or shut up time for the Gators as they travel to Freeport to take on the two-time defending district champion Bulldogs in the District 1-1A opener. Jim Ander son always has Freeport coached up. The biggest question seems to be how much Freeport lost from the 2010 team. I think Freeport lost too much to graduation as Baker comes out with a win to take an early lead in the district race. Crestview at Fort Walton Beach: Crestview leaves the fry ing pan of non-district play and jumps into the 2-6A re at Fort Walton Beach. The Vikings will be trying to avenge a couple of close losses to the Bulldogs the last two years and will come ready to play. Pettis will have the Bulldogs ready as well as Crestview wins to be come a front-runner in the district race. Oct. 14 Baker at Sneads: The Gators hit the road for the second straight week and go out side of district play to take on the Pirates. The only looting in this game will be done by Baker as the Gators come away with their sev enth straight win. Choctaw at Crestview: The last time the Indians and Bulldogs played each other in football was 2007, with Crestview taking a 34-28 win. Both the Indians and Bulldogs were playoff teams a year ago. The loser in this one could see their playoff hopes start to slide. Im go ing with the home team and taking Crestview. Oct. 21 Baker at Jay: If there is a more erce small-school foot ball rivalry in the state Id like to see it. The Gators and Royals have been beating on each other for the better part of 50 years and thats the way it has always been. Jay is at the beginning of a major rebuilding project and I dont think the Royals have enough to hand the Gators a loss. Baker wins to stay undefeated overall, as well as in district play. Crestview at Navarre: This game has all the makings of a good old fashioned war. The Raid ers beat the Bulldogs 42-0 last year on their way to a Class 4A region nal appearance. This year the teams are district opponents and Crestview will look to put a dent in the playoff hopes of the Raid ers. Six weeks from now I might be singing a different tune as the Ive had a chance to see how the season is shaping up, but for now my gut is saying the Raiders hand the Dawgs their second loss of the year. Oct. 28: Mosley at Crestview: The Bulldogs played what was probably their best game of the season last year against Mosley. I see another big night for Crest view against the Dolphins as they bounce back and win easily. Nov. 4 Baker at Northview: Katie bar the doors; this game is going to be big with the District 11A title on the line. A lot of people are picking Northview to win the district. The Chiefs should be tal ented and explosive. The key will be whether Baker can shut down the Northview offense. I think the Gators can, and will, as Baker pulls off the upset to take the dis trict championship. Crestview at Niceville: This is a game Bulldog fans circle on the calendar every year, as genera tions have passed since Crestview last beat Niceville in football. A lot of Crestview fans believe the Bulldogs should have won last year and those fans are probably right. Call me crazy, but Im pick ing Crestview to upset the Eagles in the District 2-6A season nale, which will set up a shootout to see who represents the district in the playoffs. Nov. 11Vernon at Baker: Baker coach Matt Brunson got his rst head coaching job with the Yellow Jackets and Vernon coach Russ Rogers is a former assistant at Niceville, so the coaches are fa miliar with each other and the re spective schools. At this point the Randinator has the Gators irt ing with a perfect regular season. Will he be so bold as to say Baker makes it 10 straight? The answer is yes as Baker nishes what it started and can start preparing for the playoffs. So there you have the best of my guesses for 2011. Time will tell how the Randinator does and if he will change his mind about any games as the season pro gresses. Predictions by the Randinator

Crestview High School Crestview News Bulletin | 5 Saturday, August 27, 2011 CRESTVIEW By Randy Dickson randyd@crestviewbulletin.com The pieces are falling into place for the Crestview foot ball team under rst-year coach Kevin Pettis. It has been a busy summer for the Bull dogs, who were 7-4 in 2010 and the District 2-4A runners up. Crestview returns a solid nucleus of players for the 2011 season and are ex pecting some nice things from some newcomers as well. Most people agree that the most important position on the team is quarterback. Fortunately for Crestview thats one of the deepest po sitions on the team as well. Junior Dakota Dean emerged from spring prac tice as the top signal caller and has held onto the job throughout the offseason. A competition of sorts for the starting job emerged over the summer with the arriv al of North Dakota transfer T.J. Culligan. Deans got moxy, Pet tis said. He can gure it out and hes a competitor in every sense of the word. He wants to win and hes com ing around. Culligans only deal right now is hes still learn ing everything. Its going to take a while for him to get used to it. I think by mid season, maybe even earlier, he should be pushing Da kota. The Bulldogs are deep at running back. Brothers Micah Reed, a junior, and Emmanuel Reed, a freshman, lead a talented group of running backs that also includes Justin Rebholz, Tyler Hen derson and Will Jefferies. Pettis is comfortable Dawgs take shape under Pettis with any of the backs car rying the football. They all can play, he said. A pair of 300-pound se niors anchor the offensive line on the left side. Earl Reed, the older brother of Micah and Em manuel, will start at left tackle. Reed will be anked by Will Boler at left guard. Rounding out the starting offensive line are center Jay Wilson, right guard Alex Tillman, right tackle Matt Hutchison and tight end Jonathan Longmen. The backup offensive linemen are Lucas Lee, Caleb McMasters, Josh Pouncey and Alex Shipp. The receiving foursome will be seniors Geo Hills man, Alex Campagne and Zack Bablitz, along with sophomore Matt Gillis. Pettis said Gillis was the surprise of the group. I tell that guy has come on strong recently catching the ball, Pettis said. Hes not going to burn you run ning down the eld. He aint going to stretch the eld, but hell catch it when you throw it to him and thats Matt Gillis. All Matt Gillis does is everything we ask him to do. He does exactly what we ask him to do. The Bulldogs should eld a strong defense with a nice mixture of size, speed and experience. The defensive front will be manned by Matt Phelan, Greg Burden. Denzel Ware and Marcus McBeth. Those guys are doing a great job for us, Pettis said. Five players gure to be in the mix at outside linebacker. Brothers Drew and Dennis Gibbons will be joined by Javarius Sea strunk, Tyler Patterson and Dillan Lawson on the outside. Middle linebackers will be Clay Styron, Andrew Thomas, Kyle Koontz and Ryan Vance. Henderson, a two-year starter, enters his junior year as the leader of the secondary. The other de fensive backs are DeMar cus Bethune, Demitrice Smith, Rebholz, Campagne and Hillsman. Zack Miller will handle the place kicking duties. Henderson will punt and Jeremy Arnold is the long snapper. Pettis had high praise for the versatile Hender son. He might be our best football player, Pettis said. Hes pretty good. Its big having him at punter because he can throw the heck out of it and he run it. Its good having that kid back there. Pettis said he is pleased with how the Bulldogs have responded to his way of do ing things, but warned it is too early to judge how good the team might be. They have done every thing we have asked them to do, he said. Im pleased with the way we are pro gressing. They havent done any thing spectacular yet, but they havent been given the chance and thats the differ ence. Crestview has its tough est schedule in recent mem ory and one of the toughest schedules in the state. The 10-game gaunt let starts with non-district games against Milton, Es cambia, Jacksonville Bolles, Catholic and Tallahassee Godby. The Milton and Boles games are road games. Week six of the season marks the start of District 2-6A play at Fort Walton Beach. After the Bulldogs host Choctawhatchee, they travel to Navarre, are back at home against Mosley and close out the season at Niceville. We just have to get bet ter every week, Pettis said. We dont have to be great right now. We have a brutal schedule. I dont know if anyone has as tough of one as that. Whoever (referring to him self) made the schedule needs to have their butt kicked. KEVIN PETTIS Crestview senior cheerleaders and football players gather on picture day. Cheerleaders are Kayla Pigott, Elizabeth Bass, Ashley Guthrie, Rachaley Harrison and Shelby Gainer. Players on front row are Julius Banks, Michael Fritz, Alex Campagne, Matt Hutchison, Matt Phelan, Earl Reed, Greg Burden, Jeremy Arnold, Zack Miller.

Baker School Crestview News Bulletin | 9 Saturday, August 27, 2011 By Randy Dickson randyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER There are sev eral reasons a sense of opti mism surrounds the Baker football pro gram for the 2011. The team is coming off a 4-6 season that, with a break here or there, could have easily been a 7-3 campaign. The Gators have a large senior class with 16 players that should provide valuable leadership to the program. Baker will now play in the new rural 1A classication, which means it will no lon ger have to go through a North Florida Christian to win a state championship. And Matt Brunson has re turned as head coach of his alma mater after stops at Vernon and Crestview. Brunson brings with him a resume that includes two state championships as a Gator player, another as a Baker assistant coach and a Division II National Cham pionship while playing at what was then Troy State University. He also took the Bulldogs to the Class 3A state championship game in 2002. The Gators list 32 play ers on the varsity roster and most of them should see a good amount of play ing time. The Baker offense will have a new look this year. Gone is the spread attack the Gators operated from the last few seasons. This year look for the Gators to run out of a Power I forma tion and other sets that uti lize Brunsons philosophy of power football. A trio of seniors are in the mix for the quarterback position and will share time Brunson regime begins at Baker under center depending on the situation. Vada Moore is a guy that has started at various positions since he was a sophomore, Brunson said. Hes a very good player and hes going to handle some quarterback snaps. Chris Nixon, another senior, moved over from the defensive side to the of fensive side. He has some good speed. And then there is Kaden Poole, who has a very live arm. When Moore is not play ing quarterback hell be in the mix at tailback with D.J. Thomas, Josh Lawson, and Tikea Davis. We are kind of tailback by committee right now, Brunson said. I like hav ing more than one ready, but if we have somebody that suddenly steps above the rest, hell be the guy. D.J. did a good job against South Walton run ning behind his pads. Vada had some great snaps. Josh Lawson had some carries so theyve all had some snaps in a game. Colton Bouchard and Cory Harper are leading the charge at fullback. Blake Phillips also is in the mix for playing time at full back. The Gators will be wide receiver by committee as well. Steven Grant, Andrew Allen, Ivory Smith, Matt Leverington and Taylor Carlisle will see action at receiver, as will Dylan Wad sworth and Nixon when hes not at quarterback. Smith, who won the state championship in the 400 meters last spring, is capable of changing a game with his speed. Weve got him some touches, Brunson said. He does have a good bit of speed and hes going to be double covered some. They are going to back up (so Smith wont run by them) when hes on their side, but weve got to get him the ball two or three different ways and let him use his speed. Three seniors in the mix for playing time at tight end. Weve got three tight ends we feel very good about, Brunson said. Bri an Benoit, Cody Chunn and Calvin Lirette are our tight ends. We might boot out (roll the quarterback on a bootleg pass) or release a tight end (into the at) and those guys have been catching it this summer in our seven-on-seven drills. The Gators will be led up front by centers Logan Nixon and Jesse Wilkinson. Dillon Cotton is slated to play right guard and hell be anked by Taylor Brown at right tackle. Chunn will play left guard when hes not at tight end. Joe Lee will play left tackle. Dakota Campbell and Jake Rainey are the back up guards. Zack Way and Kody Nixon are the reserve tackles. Brunsons defensive philosophy is the one he has used for years. We are on odd man front, he said. We like to get them up there close to the line and stop the run and make opponents throw the ball. If we can get them in passing situations, we feel like we can bring some pressure, but defensively our goal is to stop the run. The guys up front ap plying the pressure will be Benoit, Allen, Chunn and Lirette at defensive end. Cotton and Way are the de fensive tackles. Cody Campbell will start at nose tackle and be backed up by Rainey. Brown will play the three technique (in the gap be tween the offensive guard and tackle) and Wilkinson will back him up. Kody Nix on is the other reserve on the defensive line. Bouchard and Poole will handle the inside lineback ers. Harper, Lawson and Thomas will play outside linebacker. Chris Nixon and Moore will be at safety. Devin Robbins and Ty ler Colonna join Smith, Le verington, Carlisle, Davis, Wadsworth and Grant at cornerback. Malcolm Grifth will handle the kicking duties for the Gators.

Box 157 Baker, FL 32531 Business: (850) 537-4231 Home: (850) 537-3131 By Randy Dickson randyd@crestviewbulletin.com As we embark on the 2011 season it has become some what of an annual tradition for me to reect on what high school football means to me. Looking back through the years Ive lost track of how many games Ive attended as a fan, player or sports writer. This will be my fourth sea son covering games for the News Bulletin, my 11th year on the sidelines for Florida Freedom Newspapers and my 15th year as a full-time sports writer. Somewhere along the line games seem to run together. In an average year Ill cov er something like 15 games, which includes preseason games and playoff games, so that puts me at better than 200 Friday nights on the side lines just as a sports writer. I have covered games in the shadows of the Smoky Mountains and have played in games at a stadium so close to Santa Rosa Sound that you could taste the salt water in the air. You want hot, Ive covered games in the 90s here in Northwest Florida. If you want cold, Ive been on the sidelines in late Novem ber in Tennessee when the wind chill was around zero. Ive been to Jamestown and Copper Basin, Tenn., Bremen and Social Circle, Ga., and Walnut Hill and Jay in Florida. I was at Jay in the fall of 1971 when my alma mater picked up the rst win in school history. I have seen great play ers, great teams and great coaches. High school football has allowed me to be a part of something bigger than myself by allowing me to be a part of a team. And my idea of being a part of a team extends be yond the Gulf Breeze squads I was on more than 35 years ago. Each Friday night I feel as if Im a part of the team as coaches and players share a part of themselves so I can tell the story of the game. And Im part of the Freedom team that puts the paper to gether and posts stories on line. My position as a player was to block and tackle, but now my contribution is to help preserve the memories that are a part of every Fri day night. High school football will forever be to me Henleys Honkers, as the Gulf Breeze band was known in my day, and the Big Red Machine or the Sounds of the Swamp. High school football is cheerleaders, proud parents and elementary school kids looking up to their favorite high school player. High school football is watching Jay and Matt Sand ers together on the Crest view sidelines, and Brian and Logan Wagner together at Baker. High school football is of ten my Friday night therapy when life has beaten me up a bit. High school football is the relationships with team mates forged in the spring of youth, as well as the relation ships Ive built with coaches, players and parents through the years. And nally, at age 53, high school football remains my Fountain of Youth. What football means to me SPECIAL TO THE NEW S BULLETI N Randy Dickson senior football photo.
