Unlike elementary and middle school grades, which are announced over the summer, high school grades arent announced until winter. In the case of north Oka loosa Countys unique K-12 combination schools, Bak er and Laurel Hill schools had to wait for their high school components grades to be reported to learn their schools overall grade. Crestview High School and Laurel Hill School each received a B. Fort Walton Beach, Choctawhatchee, and Niceville high schools received As. Were very happy, Bak er School Principal Tom Shipp said. Our teachers work awfully hard and I think they encourage the best out of our students. Of course its our students who have to make the achievement. Elementary and middle school grades are based solely on FCAT scores, ex plained Okaloosa School District superintendent, Dr. Alexis Tibbetts, in a me dia release. High school grades are calculated 50 percent on FCAT and 50 percent non-FCAT components that include; graduation rate, accelerated course work (AP, IB, AICE, Dual Enrollment), industry cer tication, postsecondary readiness (based on ACT, SAT, and PERT exams), at-risk graduation rate, and growth or decline in all components, the release explained. Were going to work to shore that up, Tibbetts said of Crestview High and Laurel Hills Bs. Theres nothing wrong with a B: Its not a C, or a D or an F. But were going to work on it. We want to see it become an A again next year. Tibbetts also expressed concern about the failing grade given to the Emer ald Coast Career Institute (ECCI), a special educa tion school located at Rich bourg School in Crestview. The school offers special coursework for students who have had excessive absences and experience lack of engagement. Because these stu dents experience signi cant academic challenges, Crestview High, Laurel Hill School earn Bs on state grades Baker School scores an A grade Special to the News Bulletin U.S. Airways announced it will begin pro viding daily nonstop service from Northwest Florida Regional Airport to Washington, D.C. starting March 25. The new ights will link the regions military bases and area businesses to the nations capi tal with a quick dedicated ight every day.

Our mili tary personnel, government leaders, defense contractors, and businesses will immediately benet, Northwest Florida Regional Airport Director Greg Donovan said. Quick, affordable travel to and from the Washington market will strengthen our regions industries and our abil ity to interact with national policy makers. The service equally provides an opportu nity for national leadership to visit our com munity and see rsthand the exceptional work performed at our military bases and the im portant missions being accomplished by over 60,000 personnel.

Seven area churches, coordinated through Opportunity Inc. under the Okaloosa/ Walton Coalition for the Homeless, have teamed up to offer the homeless a warm place to spend the night. The churches rotate, each operat ing in turn a shelter one night a week, with two of the churches serving as host sites twice a week each. Shelter guests receive a hot dinner and breakfast the next morning. The shelters open at 6 and the doors close by 9 p.m., said the Rev. Mark Broadhead, whose First Presby terian Church hosts the shelter twice a week. People who come, they can have something hot to eat, as long as the food lasts. That way they have a hot meal and a hot bed, Brian Walton of Christ Com munity Church said.

Faith BRIEFSReport child abuse We all have seen the tragic story of the death of a young toddler named Logan whose father, along with the fathers ance, were charged with aggravated child abuse and neglect following the boys death. Both are in jail without bond. Thank you to the judge who made that decision. Logan has been heavy on my heart since I heard of his death. The only solace is he is no longer in pain and is with someone above who loves him. I would suspect, and I may be wrong, that if abuse indeed took place as police contend, that someone had seen the signs of abuse prior to his death and chose to turn a blind eye. If they would have just picked up the phone and called the child abuse hotline. We should not let Logan die in vain. We all should pledge to make a difference for a child. I have said this before and will continue to say it. If you know of or suspect child abuse, please call the Florida Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-96-ABUSE. Reporter information is condential. A phone call can change or even save the life of a child. It may have saved Logans life but we will never know. And in closing, there has been chatter about Special Forces bringing trouble to our area, specically this soldier who is now charged with aggravated child abuse and neglect. Folks, child abusers come from all walks of life rich, poor, military, religious organizations, and on and onChild abuse is not isolated to one sector of our society. So lets not blame the Special Forces, blame those responsible for his death. We should be appreciative of the Special Forces for their contribution to our community and more importantly than that, to our country. Julie Hurst, CEO Emerald Coast Childrens Advocacy Center, Inc.

We are excited to ex pand our service to custom ers traveling to and from our nations capital, as well as increase jobs at Washington National Airport, Parker said. When our expansion is completed, U.S. Airways will offer more than 230 daily ights and directly support more than 1,500 aviation jobs at Washington National. The competitive GSA (General Services Admin istration) government fares will allow for more military personnel from nearby bases to travel to Washington from VPS (Northwest Florida Regional Airport) instead of having to drive to other air ports. This, in turn will save the government money, said Okaloosa Airports Busi ness Development Manager Mike Stenson. The new ights will also provide new connection op portunities through U.S. Airways Washington D.C. hub to more than 50 destina tions.

With the hangar doors open to reveal Qwests new est acquisition, a 21-year-old MD-88 passenger jet that landed three weeks ago, Donovan cited a litany of air port improvements, includ ing the resurfaced 8,000-foot runway, new storm water drainage systems, and a taxiway widening project that was under construction beyond Qwests apron as he spoke. This airport is grow ing by leaps and bounds, Donovan said, gesturing to the open door behind the podium. Envision the op portunities thats going to bring to your company and our community. We welcome Qwest and we thank you for choosing the best airport to come to, Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce President Derek Lott said. This is a great event for us, agreed Okaloosa Coun ty Commissioner Wayne Harris, whose district in cludes the airport. This is another step forward for this community and Okaloosa County. Were going to increase operations in this place, Jones said, looking around his companys cavernous hangar. Were going to grow from here. Currently, he said, Qwest has 10 employees at its Crestview facility and plans to dismantle between eight and 10 aircraft a year and go up from there. In fact, he said, had Qwest had the apron space and hangar it does now, its capacity would already have increased. If we had this earlier, we would have had more (planes) down here, Jones said. Wednesday morning, Chris and Cheri Schiro were the last members of Joy Fellowship cleaning up the kitchen at Christ Com munity Church, where their church has been hosting a shelter for four years. Chris Schiro, who has received training in ac commodating transients, said the Crestview area homeless ranks increase in winter. In the wintertime, a lot of guys from up north catch trains and come down here, he said. The amount of homeless people doubles when it gets cold. We can get anywhere up to 15 or 16 people a night, Cheri Schiro said. Ann Sprague, the local homeless shelter coordina tor, said the Coalition for the Homeless will be con ducting a census of home less people in the county at the end of the month. She requested people who know of a homeless person stay ing with a friend to let her know so the person may be included in the count. The homeless person need not give his or her name. We expect the count to go way up because of the economy, she said. Area cold night shelters use cots, blankets, oor mats and sleeping bags stored in a trailer provided by the United Way through local corporate sponsor ships, Chris Schiro said. It just goes from church to church, he said. After their dinner, male shelter guests bed down in the churches fellow ship halls or other meeting rooms. We had a lady stay with us last night, Cheri Schiro said. We put her in a sep arate room. If we have a married couple or a mother with kids, we put them in a separate room, too. It is sure a blessing having these shelters, said Noreen, a homeless woman originally from Illinois, who did not wish her last name to be used. Id probably be freezing, sleeping outside otherwise. Shelter organizers said the Crestview Police De partment keeps an eye out for the homeless on cold nights, even if some dont want to take advantage of the shelters. Some of them just dont want to do the shelters, but if we see people down on their luck, we let them know where the shelters are and where the soup kitchens are, police spokesman Lt. Andrew Schneider said. In the past year we have seen a notable increase in our homeless population, he said. With the economic problems weve been hav ing, weve seen more home less people in town. We try to get them a little bit of help if we can. Organizers said by and large, shelter guests are po lite, appreciative, and rarely cause disturbances. Often they pitch in to help out at the host church. Wednes day evening, several men helped church members take down Christmas deco rations. Others have helped with minor repairs or paint ing projects, Sprague said. Most of them are pretty good guys, Chris Schiro said. Weve never had any troubles with them. Normally we dont have any problems because they police each other very well, Sprague added. Nobody wants to ruin a good thing. their lack of participation in accelerated course work negatively impacted the points earned for their school grade, Tibbetts re lease stated. Yet, the mission of this school, which is to pro duce high school graduates through targeted counsel ing, educational support, in dividualized instruction and remediation, and career and technical training, is of note because Okaloosa County has the lowest dropout rate in Florida, the release con tinued. This is the rst year the ECCI school has been grad ed, according to the Florida School Grades School Ac countability Report available at schoolgrades.doe.org. Tibbetts attributed Crestview High and Laurel Hill Schools B grade to low learning gains in reading for the lowest 25 percent of each schools students. Crestview Highs FCAT scores in writing, read ing and science also con tributed to its B, Tibbetts said, but Laurel Hill School wouldve had an A except for the reading issue. Baker School has earned an A for eight of the past 10 years. Crestview High and Laurel Hill were A schools for each of the three years prior to 2010-11. What we try to do ev ery year is pinpoint those things that we need to improve in and focus our time and our energy on our weak spots, Shipp said. Im very, very proud of our teachers and our students. Theyre doing an excellent job. Theyre raising the bar and theyre having to work hard but were going to do our best to maintain that grade.

News & NOTES By Randy Dickson randyd@crestviewbulletin. com FOR T WAL TON BEACH Choctawhatchee spotted Crestview 14 points before coming roaring back be hind the play of Mikal Rod gers to beat the Bulldogs 70-62 in District 2-6A boys basketball Tuesday. Indian coach Andy Thigpen wasnt surprised by the way his team bat tled back. I have good guys, he said. They just had to settle down and play their game. I knew patience and attention would get us back in the game. But you can never count Crestview out be cause coach (Keith) White is a great coach and his players are very athletic. Its not over until the end of the ball game. Crestview (9-4, 2-2) could do no wrong in the rst ve-and-a-half min utes of play. Ronnie Baylark led Crestviews early charge, scoring six of the rst 14 Bulldog points. The Indians nally got on the scoreboard with 2:09 left in the period when Jonathon Brassell broke the drought with a midrange jumper. Another Brassell bas ket pulled the Indians (105, 2-1) within 10 points, but things still looked bleak for the home team at the end of the rst quarter with Crestview up 19-6. A Crestview basket by Antryum Coleman with 4:12 left in the rst half gave the Bulldogs their biggest lead of the night at 26-11. Rodgers then proceed ed to take over the game, scoring 11 of his teamhigh 23 points in the nal four minutes of the half. A Rodgers basket with 1:14 left in the second quarter pulled the Indians to with in two points of Crestview at 30-28. But Jonathan Buckelew hit three free throws and Denzel Ware added another to stretch the Crestview lead to 3428 at the break. Choctaw got scores from Jamel Bias, Rodgers and Brassell to open the third quarter and take the lead at 35-34. The teams continued to exchange scores until Baylark, who led all scor ers with 24 points, got hot again and the Bull dogs moved in front 46-41 with 1:21 left in the third. By the time Crestview scored its next basket the Indians had gone on a 12point run to take control of the game with 5:44 left in the fourth. A Buckelew score broke the Indian run but by that time the Indians led 53-48 and were in control of the game. Bias joined Rodgers in double gures for the In dians with 10 points. Bras sell added nine points and Terrance Bryant kicked in eight points. Cline and Coleman hit double digits, along with Baylark for Crestview. Coleman scored 13 and Cline added 11. White said his team was unwilling to play the way it needed to with the big lead. We are very selsh and we dont want to do the things we need to do to hold onto a lead, he said. We dont want to run the plays we need to work on a lead. We dont want to milk the clock. We want to keep shoot ing the ball and when the shots arent falling we keep shooting the same shots. By Pat Flynn Florida Freedom Newspapers The Niceville boys soc cer team picked up where it left off before Christmas break on Tuesday night against Crestview. Both teams braved the mid-30 degree weather and took to the pitch for a District 1-4A match, but only the Eagles left victo rious, defeating the Bull dogs 4-0 at Jack Foster Stadium. Niceville dominated possession for much of the game and nished with 11 shots on goal to Crest views two. We did well posses sion-wise, Niceville coach Wes Nelson said. Attack ing third we struggled a little bit, but we got better as the game progressed, which was nice. The Eagles struck rst in the 24th minute as Matt Worthen scored his rst of two goals by heading in a Parker White pass from the right corner to give Niceville (17-2, 10-0) a 1-0 lead. Less than three min utes later, Lucas Van De car sent a ball tipped by a host of players from the air into the back of the net to extend the Niceville lead to 2-0. Denitely started off a little slow, Worthen said, because we havent played together as a team in a while, but getting out there on the eld we just pulled it together and started doing real good. As the second half be gan, the Niceville defense put a quick stop to any Crestview (6-6-1, 4-6-1) at tack. Defensively we did really well, Nelson said. Our keeper was bored all night, which is what we wanted. So I felt like we did really well there. Kyle Pfeiffer assisted on a David Williams goal to move the Niceville lead to 3-0 right around the 65th minute and Worthen struck again to nish off the Bulldogs, splitting two defenders up the middle to get the goal. Despite the loss, Crest view J.V. coach Nick Koot souradis was happy with the progress of the team. Bulldogs varsity coach Scottie Milton was serving a suspension for receiving a red card recently. The strategy going in was a better result than the last game (8-0), he said. Weve been playing better the second half of the sea son and I was proud.

A6 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, January 7, 2012 6513911 BusinessSPECIAL TO THE NEW S BULLETI N Jason Wilhelm, general manager of Hooters in Crestview, presents a check to Colleen Mahn, Crestview Family YMCA board chairman, in the amount of $1,264.40. The money was raised from the Hooters sixth annual Golf Tournament in October at Foxwood Country Club. Pictured from left to right are Troy Donofro, Crestview YMCA branch manager/sports coordinator; Regina, Wilhelm, Colleen Mahn, Liz and Brooklyn. By Brian Hughes firstname.lastname@example.org Since the 1960s, the distinctive building at 605 W. James Lee Blvd., that until last year was the D&W Caf, has been a restaurant. It was built as Burketts Drive-In Restaurant in an era of space-age-inspired geometric shapes and colorful graphics, exemplied by sleek, brightly colored diamonds that marched across the buildings ridgeline and the awning below. A colorful, geometric electric sign with neon effects stood as a landmark along the Old Spanish Trail, as old-timers remember U.S. Highway 90, welcoming drivers on that pre-Interstate 10 thoroughfare to Crestview, as well as a good meal. Folks could even eat in their cars under the drivein canopy on the west (left) side of the restaurant. Betty Curenton and Claudia Patten tell us in their local history, Crestview the Forkland, that Viola Burkett was the restaurants original owner. Her husband was Ted Burkett, who owned Burketts Drugs, the Main Street business that older folks recall was the soda fountain in town. (It was formerly Brackins Rexall Drug Store and is now the law ofces of Powell & Powell.) Before D&W moved in three years ago, the restaurant was clad for many years in the Old West trappings of the Coach-n-Four Steak House, which has since moved to its new home south of I-10. In the 1980s, locals recall the eatery on U.S. 90 was Elbertos Restaurant, a quasiItalian establishment that served up a great plate of spaghetti and meatballs. Though the building is undergoing renovation and will soon reopen as Rancheros Cantina Grill, the wide diamonds across the ridgeline are still there currently tan instead of the original bright green, yellow and pink. However, a false facade has been erected, both concealing but also protecting the original decorative architectural detail. Most of the original canopy, however, has been lost. A bit of the early drive-in canopy remains, still proudly sporting its roof diamonds and reminding older residents of the days when Miss Viola accepted American Express, Diners Club and Carte Blanche cards to pay for their meals. I remember when we used to take the kids there when they were real young, Crestview Director of Administrative Services Mike Wing recalled. It was the fanciest place in town to eat back then. Special to The News Bulletin The National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs (NAC) announced that Childcare Network 132 has been awarded NAC accreditation.
