We covered the bad, along with the good. There were fatal car wrecks and a major brush re that threatened homes north of Bob Sikes Air port. A re chief was ousted amid allegations of misuse of funds and the death of a Crestview High School student prompted a move ment to warn of the dan gers of texting and driving. Although stories of home foreclosures, the sluggish economy and con gressional gridlock domi nated the national news, many of the stories covered by the News Bulletin in 2011 were positive. From the opening of the new wing at the North Oka loosa Medical Center, to the arrival of the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) to an inux of new busi nesses at Bob Sikes Air port, we found that north Okaloosa County residents had much to celebrate in 2011. Given the ebb and ow of the areas news in 2011, rather than highlight the top 10 stories of the year as we have done in the past, we chose to present a timeline of events, which better re ects the year as it un folded: (Editors note: Dates provided are the dates the stories ran in the News Bulletin and do not reect the actual date the events occurred.)

The hospitals Patient Tower, which opened in Febru ary, includes 48 additional hospital beds. By Brian Hughes brianh@crestviewbulletin.com A popular Crestview bar, pool hall and liquor store has closed its doors after 85 years in business. Opened as Mar-Camp Tavern in 1926, Kees Lounge survived the roaring 20s, Prohibition, the Great Depression and sev eral wars before closing last month.

The West James Lee Boulevard pub was famous, and sometimes infamous, as a popular north county wa tering hole. It stood just out side the Crestview city limits on what was originally called Old Spanish Trail West, the route that evolved into to days U.S. Highway 90.

Tourist cottages provided overnight accommodations and a baseball diamond was whipped into shape, the article read.

With a swim ming pool, caf and dance oor, Mr. Martin hopes to make it a center of activity Right: Formerly the MarCamp Tavern and a Crestview landmark for more than eight decades, Kees lounge closed toward the end of 2011.

The establishments im age as a wholesome fam ily hangout, however, didnt last long. By the mid 1950s, Mar-Camp had established a tougher reputation and local law enforcement fre quently responded to dis turbances at the pub. We had a phone we called the Mar-Camps phone, said Louis Becker, a former posse member under Okaloosa County Sheriff Ray Wilson. When it went off we just jumped in the cars and ran to MarCamps because we knew we had some kind of fracas going on there. Every week end we had plenty of busi ness down there. Crestview Police De partment spokesman Lt. Andrew Schneider said al though Mar-Camp, which became Kees Lounge when purchased by Kee Anderson, Ken Blocker and their partners in 2001, was outside the city limit, Crest view police were sometimes called to provide backup to sheriffs deputies. Weve had some serious calls from people getting stabbed and some violence calls from people getting in ghts. Weve had some aggravated batteries and assaults, sheriffs ofce District 1 commander Capt. Larry Ward said. Its prob ably been our most active nightspot in District 1. It brought us a lot of business over the years. Ive seen it all at MarCamps, Holt resident Sherrie Stanley said. Things happened there. There were ghts, stab bings and cuttings, but people went back. It never deterred them from going. As Crestview grew and residential neighborhoods crept closer to the bar, Kees new owners started to improve the establish ments image. In 2005, the 1955 building, which had replaced the 1934 earlier structure, was upgraded. A sign proclaiming Racks Billiards & Beverages was added within the last year. The lounge continued to attract patrons from throughout the north coun ty. Many locals remember the bar fondly as the place where they sowed the wild oats of youth. When we were young er, thats where we went, Stanley said. The way it used to work was MarCamps was the last stop. Mar-Camps always stayed open the latest. It was 3 or 4 oclock before they shut down. No matter how old you were, no matter your social status, everybody wound up at Mar-Camps. You always had the most fun there. Some people are going to miss it and some people not so much, Sheriffs Of ce spokesperson Michele Nicholson said, adding that law enforcement ofcers are among the latter. We denitely dont get many calls to mattress stores, Schneider said. The Crestview baseball team celebrates in May after winning the District 2-5A baseball championship.

Local A4 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, December 31, 2011 Big Red Machine departs for Rose Parade By Brian Hughes brianh@crestviewbulletin.com After 14 months of preparation, the Crestview High School band departed Wednesday morning, representing the city, Okaloosa County and Northwest Florida in the Jan. 2 Tournament of Roses Rose Parade. As members and parent chaperones waited to board buses, the schools band room, normally lled with activity and sound lots of sound was uncommonly quiet. Theyre still half asleep now, band parent and Crestview High athletics coach Ernie Martin said. Wait till they get to the airport and see that big plane. Theyll wake up then. For many of the young performers, Martin said, the non-stop trip on the chartered World Airways jet to California will be their rst plane ride. As the buses pulled away, among supporters passing out hugs and well wishes at Crestview High was a bewhiskered gentleman who knew exactly the emotions the kids were experiencing. Fifty-one years before, Wendell Huffman, a former high school alto saxophone player, was undergoing the same feelings as he and his other Lakewood, Calif., band members headed to Pasadena. This time, the Mossy Head resident waited in the 38-degree darkness to bid farewell to his granddaughter Brittany Free, who took with her Huffmans commemorative medal from his 1962 Rose Parade appearance. Its going back (to Pasadena) 51 years later, Huffman said. I know these kids will enjoy this. But theyll be glad to sit down when its over. Its a sevenor eightmile march. We all had a ball when we did it. If Brittanys anything like I was, she had a hard time going to sleep last night. She wasnt the only one who passed a restless night. I didnt sleep at all last night, I am so excited, co-drum major Taylor Martin said as she sipped coffee. Were really prepared for whats about to happen. I think were ready to go. The adventure began with a September 2010 phone call to CHS band director Jody Dunn from Greg Jones, vice chairman of the music selection committee for the Rose Parade. Dunn recalled he didnt recognize the number on his caller ID and took the call out of curiosity. Weve accepted your application to march in the 2012 parade, Dunn said Jones told him. I said, OK, whos this really? I thought it was a joke, Dunn later said. I had to call back the next day to make sure it was real. A lot of people do that, Tournament of Roses President Rick Jackson said reassuringly during a May visit to Crestview. Between 50 and 70 bands annually apply to march in the Rose Parade, Jackson said. On Monday, most will be high school bands, along with a few college bands, including those from universities of Wisconsin and Oregon, the teams playing in the Rose Bowl Game. International bands include the Royal Swedish Navy Cadet Band. Working to raise more than $250,000 to fund the trip to Pasadena, the Big Red Machine found broad community support from parents, friends, businesses, civic leaders and even local artists. At its Dec. 6 meeting, the Okaloosa County Board of Commissioners designated January 2012 Crestview Band Month. Months of fundraising and rehearsals culminated on Wednesday morning when, at 15-minute intervals, 50-member groups of the Big Red Machine boarded a eet of school buses that transported them to Northwest Florida Regional Airport, where Superintendent of Schools Dr. Alexis Tibbetts bid them farewell. Their chartered jet left promptly at 10 a.m., arriving in Los Angeles four hours later. I couldnt be even more proud, Huffman said, adding he refrained from offering his granddaughter any sage advice. Shes a senior this year. They know everything. 2039844 Dine in only.

Opp (344) 493-2259 1290 North Ferdon Blvd. Crestview (850) 682-0484 2077441 The Crestview Public Librarys Noel Night was held last week. The event included performances by the First United Methodist Church hand bell choir and a worship music team from Emmanuel Baptist Church. By Paula Kelley paulak@crestviewbulletin.com Hoppin John is a traditional family recipe for New Years Day. Its a Southern dish and we are superstitious and sentimental folks, raised to believe that you must eat at least three black eyed peas (for luck, fortune and romance) on New Years Day if you like them or not in order to have a prosperous year lled with only good luck. The peas are symbolic of pennies and some families even add a coin to the pot. Although Hoppin John is a meal by itself, we always cook collard or mustard greens to accompany it as they are green, the color of money. And what good Southern spread is complete without cornbread? The reason, were Southern and its the color of gold. Obviously most of us in the South are not lthy rich yet, but that superstition always whispers in your ear and makes you follow the tradition, just in case. Ingredients: 1 lb package dry black eye peas 2 cups ham cooked and cubed into bite size pieces 1 medium diced onion 1 cups diced bell pepper (I use a green, a red and a yellow for color) 1 tbsp minced garlic 1 jalapeno (diced with no seeds) 1 can Rotel Tomatoes 1 can stewed tomatoes (chopped) 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning (I use Tony Chachere) 1 bay leaf 4-6 cups stock (vegetable or chicken) 2 tbsp canola oil 2 cups cooked long grain white rice Preparation: The night before cooking Hoppin John, soak the dry black eye peas in a bowl of water. Cover and set aside until you are ready to cook. Then drain the peas in a colander and rinse with water. Prepare all of your ingredients chopping, dicing and measuring. In a 6-quart pot, heat the 2 tablespoons of canola oil on medium high heat. Saut the onion, bell pepper and garlic. Add the 4-6 cups vegetable or chicken stock. Add the Rotel tomatoes, seasonings, jalapeno, black eye peas and ham. Make sure the mixture is covered with water. Add water if needed. Bring to a boil. Cover and lower the heat to medium low. Simmer for 1 1/2 hours stirring occasionally. In the last 1/2 hour, cook the rice according to package directions. Stir the rice in to the big pot or serve the Hoppin John on a bed of rice. Oh, and dont forget, you cant wash clothes on New Years Day according to Southern superstitions. Supposedly you will cry many tears in the New Year if you do. Hope 2012 is a wonderful New Year!

www.crestviewbulletin.com Section News & NOTES Saturday, December 31, 2011 Section A Page 8 By Randy Dickson randyd@ crestviewbulletin.com FREEPORT Crestviews three-headed monster of Justin Cline, Antryun Coleman and Ronnie Baylark each scored 16 points to lead the Bulldogs to a 62-35 win over Lakeshore, La., in the second round of the Hilton Sandestin Beach Basketball Blowout on Wednesday. The Bulldogs (8-2) got off to a slow start the night after running Spanish Fort out of the gym on Tuesday and struggled most of the game to put the Titans away. I dont know how we got through that one to be honest with you, Crestview coach Keith White said. I think we played really, really good yesterday and we thought we were going to show up and play the same way today. Its all a mental game. We scored 37 points in three quarters and turn around and scored 25 in the fourth quarter. Its just frustrating to see us play the way we played when I know how good we can be. The Bulldogs used the long ball to take a 14-8 lead at the end of the rst quarter. Coleman picked up the rst Crestview score with a 2-point basket. The rest of the Bulldog points in the period came from beyond the arch as Cline hit a pair of 3-pointers and Jonathan Buckelew and Greg Burden connected from long range. Lakeshore big man Mikal Mazik kept the Titans in the game, scoring all eight of his teams rstquarter points as Crestview led 14-8 after the rst quarter. Baylark took control of things in the second quarter, scoring seven as the Bulldogs extended their lead to 28-19 at the half. Mazik continued to carry the Trojans, adding ve more points in the second quarter. He had 17 of Lakeshores 31 points when he fouled out early in the fourth quarter. Hes the best post player weve seen this year, White said. Denzel (Ware) told me he is really strong and we tried to double and triple team him a couple times and hes really good. Hes a good strong guy. With Mazik out of the picture the Bulldogs were able to take the ball to the hole and play their insideout game. The Bulldogs led 3728 after three before exploding for the big fourth quarter. Coleman had 10 points in the fourth quarter and Baylark added nine as the Bulldogs pulled away for the win. Cline knows the Bulldogs still have some work to do before lifting the tournament championship trophy, but he knows what it would mean to the Crestview program if the Bulldogs can win the next two games. It would be something good because we havent won anything in years, he said. This would be something to turn things around with. By Randy Dickson randyd@crestviewbulletin.com FREEPORT Crestviews onetwo punch of Ronnie Baylark and Antryun Coleman delivered a knockout blow to Spanish Fort, Ala., as the Bulldogs opened the Hilton Sandestin Beach Basketball blowout with a 73-44 win. The Bulldog tandem combined for 46 points as Baylark went for a game-leading 25 points and Coleman dropped in 21 to pace the Crestview (7-2) attack. Bulldog coach Keith White offered a simple explanation for the Crestview win. They came out in a zone and we started hitting a bunch of threes, and they came out of the zone and went back to man, he said. We pressed them a little bit and they didnt like that. Weve got to play defense. If we play defense, we are going to be hard to beat. In a sign of things to come, the duo scored all 11 of Crestviews points in the rst quarter. Coleman was off to a quick start with six points and Baylark added ve. While the Bulldogs relied on two players to score all of their points in the rst quarter, the Toros had ve different players scoring as Crestview led 11-9 at the end of the rst quarter. Spanish Fort big man Jaleel Cousins, the younger brother of former Kentucky star and current NBA player DeMarcus Cousins, tried to put his team on his back in the second quarter. The 6-foot-9-inch post player scored eight of his team-high 12 points in the period to help keep things close. But Cousins one-man show could only do so much as Crestviews Justin Cline got hot scoring seven points and Baylark continued his steady play, adding ve more points before the break as the Bulldogs took a 2621 lead into the break. The second half wasnt close as Coleman and Baylark went back to work. Coleman pitched in 11 points in the third quarter and Baylark was good for eight points as the Bulldogs went on a 27-8 tear to push their lead to 53-29 after three. The hot shooting of Baylark and Coleman was only part of the story. In typical Crestview fashion the Bulldogs extended the defensive pressure to frustrate Spanish Fort at every turn. Cousins scored just two points in the second half after scoring 10 in the rst half, as Crestview used post players Denzel Ware, Jerry Aaron and Emmanuel Cotton to take Cousins out of his game. But it wasnt just good Crestview defense on the inside that played well.
