But for seven years, the couple struggled with having a baby of their own. Nobody likes to talk about those things, but it is something we have to live through, Misty said. Weve al ways wanted children. This is the only thing missing in our life. The couple met in 2002 while working at the Crestview Police Saturday, MAY 19 2012 By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Crestview City Clerk Betsy Roy requested the city council allow her to reduce the Utilities Bill ing Department hours after a month-long study determined that few wa ter customers visited the services City Hall ofce in the early morning and late afternoon hours. In October 2010, as a cost-cutting measure, the city implemented a fourday, 10-hour workweek, with administrative ofces closed on Fridays. In July 2011, however, at the request of water customers, the utilities de partment opened for busi ness on Fridays again. But the department kept the 10-hour workdays. Roy requested revert ing back to an 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. schedule Monday through Friday after re ducing the number of ca shiers from three to two. She also requested the same hours be kept in the citys payroll department. Roys request was unanimously approved at council meeting. Our anticipated time of hours change would be June 25, Roy stated in a letter to the council. Scheduling with this reduction (in staff) would be greatly enhanced by the change in hours and would make sure we have full coverage and availabil ity of customer service, Roy wrote in the letter.

Coleman is the citys rst Citizen of the Year. The Crestview City Council voted unani mously Monday to create what will become an annual award to be presented to an outstand ing resident. The council not only selected Coleman as the rst recipient, but named the award in her honor. I have decided that the Citizen of the Year award will be known as the Mother Coleman Award, council President Ben Iannucci III said. We have to gure out the logistics of it. I think that is a good idea, council mem ber Charles Baugh Jr. said. I cant think of anyone right now that has the spirit of (for mer) Mayor (George) Whitehurst and our other great citizens than Mrs. Coleman. Mrs. Coleman, thank you for being the mother of all of us. I dont think theres any more tting name than the Mother Coleman Award, council member Robyn Helt said. What I love about Mrs. Coleman is, she is always here and lets us know how she thinks were doing. If she doesnt think highly of us, shed let us know, too. Coleman is familiar to council members for her regular attendance at council meet ings and for her praise when she believes the body is acting in the best interests of the city. She is equally known for not hesitating to chastise council members or others whom she feels are pulling us down. A retired nurse and member of the Mt. Zion AME Church, Coleman is active in multiple civic causes, including tutoring and supporting incarcerated youths, improving educational opportunities for underprivi leged children, and encouraging community involvement. Last summer Coleman spearheaded a campaign to raise supplies for victims of the Alabama tornadoes, enlisting the aid of Crestviews police and re departments to gather the donations.

Local Crestview News Bulletin | A3 Saturday, May 19, 2012 Department, where John was an officer and Misty worked in dispatch. The two dated a few years before they married and have been together for more than 10 years. John is a loving husband and he will be a wonderful father, Misty said. The kids all love him. The two have always wanted to have children, but after years of unsuccessful tries, they began to seek medical help. Even though the doctors did not find anything wrong with us, for some reason we have not been able to have a child, Misty said. This happens to some couples and is very difficult to accept. Last December, the Cooks made the decision to start the adoption process. We have a lot of love to give and we will raise a happy, healthy and responsible adult, Misty said. We are staying positive and hope that God will bless our family. Misty has no doubts that both she and John will make great parents for a child that needs a home. I see how John is with our nephews and nieces when they come to visit, she said. We often take care of them, but then they have to go home. Misty said officials with the adoption agency visited her and John multiple times, interviewed the pair, fingerprinted them and checked their backgrounds before approving them for adoption. The first part of the adoption process was completed March 15. The process of adoption is very complicated and expensive, Misty said. we will need to raise funds. The adoption costs around $22,000. This sum includes support, training, home study services, birth parent expenses and legal fees. The Cooks used their savings to pay for the first $7,000, and continue to save more to cover additional costs. Misty also created a website to solicit donations. The site has raised $2,500, but theyre hoping to raise enough money by July 8 to move forward with the adoption. If there are only 500 people to donate $10 each, we will reach our fundraising goal of $5,000, Misty said. 3448732 Specializing in Vehicles under $6,000 for you and your family 10% OFF with Coupon for a Maximum Savings of $500 958B Hwy 90 Crestview, Florida (850) 588-9999 www.crestviewcars.com 2074877 HIGHEST PRICES PAID FOR YOUR PRECIOUS METALS!

CHANGE from page A1 hours, Roy had her staff count the number of customers who came to the department on a daily basis during the month of March. The number of citizens that are served by the utility department from 7 a.m. until 8 a.m. is 1.37, on average, Roy reported. On 10 of Marchs 22 business days, no customers called at the department at all between 7 and 8 a.m. From the hours of 5 to 6 p.m., the average number of citizens served is 3.15, she wrote. This number is skewed slightly by the number of late customers on (billing) due date. Roy assured the council we have absolutely no problem remaining open ve days a week, but based on the low usage in the current rst and last hours of operation, she asked to reduce opening hours with the understanding that on bill-due dates, we would have somebody here until 6 p.m. to make sure all payments received that day are processed. On a recent afternoon, Crestview resident Forrest Jenkins stopped by the of ce to have water turned on at his new home. Jenkins said he foresaw no problem with the reduction in hours. If people have something they need to get done, theyre going to make time for it, he said. I didnt even know they had early hours. I gured they had regular of ce hours like other government of ces.

Local A4 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, May 19, 2012 2074873 Dishonorable Plus FREE COUPONING CLASSES AND AND AND Seating is LIMITED so RSVP: 2076012 By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Monday evenings meeting of the Crestview City Council began with a brief ceremony to swear in the bodys newest mem ber. Crestview business man Thomas Gordon took the seat vacated by Phillip Berezo, who resigned at the conclusion of the coun cils March 26 meeting. First Judicial Circuit Judge Michael Flowers began the ceremony by commending Gordon for taking on the often-difcult role of a public servant. Public service is one of the callings someone can have, to serve their community, Flowers said. Youll hear a great deal about the honest mistakes you might make and you may not hear too much about the hard work you do. I applaud your deci sion to serve. It is a high calling. After being sworn in, Gordon remained at the podium and asked council President Ben Iannucci III, Do I have to make a speech? You can come and sit down now, Iannucci said to laughter. To applause from mem bers of the audience, in cluding his parents Brady and Edna Gordon, his sister Anne and her hus band Frank Sauls, Thomas signed in. City of Crestview, you now have your new, full 2012 city council, Iannucci said to the audience. Student members of the Bob Sikes Elementary School student council at tended the meeting to see how municipal government works. These students took time out of their personal lives to be with us tonight, Iannucci said to applause. In other matters, the council: Heard from resident Landrum Edwards, who said he has heard salt water was intruding into ground water as far north as three miles above Nicev ille. Edwards also said the city should build something other than a sports com plex if the tourist develop ment tax passes. Discussed a program to recognize employees who go above and beyond their regular duties. City staff will put together a proposal whereby depart ment heads would offer the names of exemplary em ployees on a regular basis. Discussed inspec tions of city water service back ow valves. Council member Tim Grandberry suggested the service, re quired by ordinance, could be performed cheaper if a city inspector did the job instead of an outside con tractor, lessening the cost water service customers are obligated to pay for the annual inspection. Discussed several op tions for providing build ing inspections as the city building inspector retired and nobody responded to an ad searching for a re placement because of the low salary offered. Coun cil member Robyn Helt moved to up the salary to $60,000 and t the posi tion into the citys person nel structure. The motion passed unanimously.

WOMEN IN THE MILITARY By PAULA KELLEY 682-6524 | @cnbpaula paulak@crestviewbulletin.com Its May in Florida wheres your sunscreen? asked Dr. Richard Freier II as he gave an infor mal talk about skin can cer awareness for Mays Healthy Woman event at North Okaloosa Medical Center. The lunch-and-learn session gave area women a lesson in the potential hazards of exposure to ultraviolet radiation, from the sun or through tan ning beds. There are three wave lengths with ultraviolet ra diation UVA, UVB and UVC, Freier said. UVC isnt a concern for skin cancer; however, ultravio let radiation exposure is the main factor responsi ble for skin cancers. Basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and mela noma are all on the rise. Freier said that a good sun protection factor or sunscreen is essential to avoiding skin cancer. Because you cant see the suns rays with the human eye you dont automatically associate it with harming your body, Freier said. Sun damage to your skin cells can be avoided. More and more studies show a direct link to skin cancers from skin damage in indoor tan ning beds or booths. Lets face it, overexposure of any kind to UV rays is harmful. Freier said that skin care awareness starts with ABCD. Remember ABCD. Watch any unusual spots and check them for: Asym metry does the spot match the other half? Bor der do the edges appear ragged or irregular? Color is it the same color all over or deeper or unusual shades? Diameter is it larger than a pencil eras er, and I caution you that sometimes a skin cancer can be smaller than that. You have to be aware, he cautioned. Dr. David Herf took the lecture from a surgeons focus. The highest age ris ing age bracket for skin cancer is in 16 to 29 year olds, Herf said. I have patients of all ages with skin cancers. Some see an abnormal rise on their skin and pick it off. They come to me when it is has grown back with time. The rise in the number of skin cancers comes from the sun bathers and the in door tanning use. Herf told the group that he recommends daily use of SPF products at a level 30 or 40 for skin protection. He also cautioned about children and skin care. You have to use a wa terproof SPF product with children who are playing in the sun and you have to be diligent about reapply ing it, Herf said. Herf also suggested that women who have never had a complete skin check-up from a physician have one on an annual basis. Skin cancers can form and grow without any pain or discomfort and people tend to ignore what they dont know, Herf said. New Healthy Womans Advisory Council mem bers were also introduced at the lunch-and-learn. Jackie Colmon, Angela Evans, Sara Fordyce, Ce cilia Fuller, Robyn Helt, April Linton, Edina Mann, Susan Petrey, Ashley Rog ers, Shavone Scott, Katie Sharon, Colette Waite, and Carolyn Williams will serve for 2012. PAULA KELLE Y | News Bulletin Surgeon David Herf was a guest speaker at the May lunch-and-learn skin cancer awareness session held recently at North Okaloosa Medical Center.

Andrew Schneider at the scene. The incident snarled lunchtime traf c for more than an hour after it occurred around 12:15 p.m. What investigators do know is a red Chevrolet pickup driven by a 52-yearold man struck the drivers side of a late model Honda Civic, shattering the side windows and stripping off the cars steel skin and re vealing internal structural parts of the door. The im pact of the 33-year-old fe male drivers head against her windshield shattered the front window. The driver of the Hon da was cited for failure to yield the right of way. Sch neider said. Her car was resting at a northeasterly angle across both east bound lanes of the road. The pickup traveled west bound for about 50 yards, crossing the eastbound lanes, smashing through a brick fencepost and into trees by the side of the road after jumping the sidewalk. The driver of the Honda and a boy estimated to be around 9 years old were transported by Okaloosa County EMS to an area hospital. A Crestview po lice ofcer described the boy as in bad shape with apparent head trauma. Schneider said the boy was too big for a child safety seat and was riding in the back seat on the drivers side. He was in the back seat right where the impact oc curred, Schneider said. Occupants of both ve hicles were wearing seat belts. The driver of the pickup was arrested for driving with a suspended license. The truck was being fol lowed at the time of the accident by the drivers elderly father who was driving a late model red Ford Mustang that was not involved in the ac cident. The father was cited for allowing an unli censed motorist to drive his truck. Crestview police Lt. Eddie Lehneis identied the driver of the Mustang as a resident of the Crest view Manor nursing home who and is under hospice care. Ive worked a lot of ac cidents but Ive never seen one like this, Lehneis said. How his (the truck drivers) daddy avoided hitting him in that Mus tang I dont know. Hes not even supposed to be driving. Its a big tangled story. As the trafc scene was investigated, police shut down both eastbound lanes, routing trafc north on Coleman Street. Only one westbound lane was open during the investigation.

SP O RTS www.crestviewbulletin.com Saturday, May 19, 2012 By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com Former National Basketball Association star Tom Hammonds and Major League baseball standout John Bale top the list of honorees in the inaugural class of the Crestview Athletic Hall of Fame that was announced at Fridays Red and White game at Jack Foster Stadium. The rest of those honored in the class are former Bulldog baseball standouts Dale Rice Sr., Terry Taylor, Dexter Day, Tim Gillis and Ricky Despaux. Hammonds coach Ken Rogers, who led the boys basketball team to the 1985 state championship, will be inducted as well. Bob Lynn, the longtime football public address announcer at Jack Foster Stadium will be a part of the class because of his lifetime of service to the Bulldog program. The nal individual honor goes to wrestler Eric Flinchum, who won the schools only individual state championship in the sport, claiming the Class 1A title in the 189-pound weight class in 2002. Several of the great Bulldog teams of the past also are a part of the inaugural class. The boys basketball teams from 1983-84, 1884-85 and 1986-87 will go into the hall of fame, as will the girls basketball teams from 1985 and 1991. The 2002 Class 3A state runner-up football team is in the class, as are the 1999 state champion boys weightlifting team and the 2002 varsity cheerleading squad that captured a national championship. The Hall of Fame Class of 2012 will be inducted at a luncheon Sept. 14 and introduced to the fans that night at halftime of the Crestview-Bolles football game at Jack Foster Stadium. We are putting in 10 individuals and several teams, and it is a big class, Crestview head football coach and athletic director Kevin Pettis said. Im extremely proud of this class. Out of the 10 individuals, there are a couple of Cincinnati Reds on there, a Los Angeles Dodger and a New York Yankee. Tom Hammonds played for the Denver Nuggets and the (Minnesota) Timberwolves. And then there are all the teams with Ken Rogers winning the rst state championship here (in any sport). Who I feel is a shoe-in for next years class is Matt Brunson, who took them to the state runner-up in football in 2002. Pettis said he received more than 200 nominations, and more than 80 Bulldogs were nominated. I was shocked at the number of people that emailed me, he said. A lot of them were nominating the same people. The guys that got in were guys that were nominated four or ve different times by different people. Pettis said he understands some people might be upset because their nominee isnt in this years class. and he reminded fans that a name stays in the nomination pool ve years. You can never do anything like this without hurting peoples feelings, and thats not what it is intended to be, he said. Its intended for us to kind of embrace what we have done here at Crestview High School and celebrate the past and build on that tradition. I hope everybody that feels a little bit slighted or that their nominee wasnt heard will know that every nominee was heard, and they will be on the ballot again next year. But now is a time to celebrate the members of the 2012 class, and Pettis is anxiously looking forward to September when the Bulldog greats will be honored. I cant wait for the Bolles game to bring them home and have the fans cheer them one last time, Pettis said. By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER Before spring football practice 2012 wrapped up Friday night with a game against Chipley, the Gators still were adding the nishing touches to what has been a rebuilding spring as head coach Matt Brunson looks to ll 18 starting positions this fall. By all indications it has been a successful effort, with several players still ghting for a spot in the lineup this fall. Weve had a good spring, Brunson said Tuesday as he looked ahead to the game Friday. We are nishing up, and we have a very stiff test against the Chipley Tigers, the defending 1A runner-up, and it will be a very good measuring stick for us. The kids have done great and have worked hard. Theyve done everything weve asked them to do, and we will see where we are Friday. The players said practices have gone smoothly in Brunsons second spring at his alma mater. Things have been going pretty good, offensive lineman Taylor Brown said. It is easier because you know what he expects and how to do it and how he works. Weve been working hard and we know what to do so, I think we will have a pretty good shot of beating Chipley. D.J. Thomas has enjoyed the physical nature of the spring practices. I think the spring drills are going real good, he said. The coaches have the old school stuff going on where you hit them right in the mouth that type of ball and everybody is loving it. We are going to let people know that no matter how big you are and whoever youve got, we are going to come hit you in the mouth every play no matter what the score is. Brunson continued to be pleasantly surprised by the play off the offensive line throughout the spring. I felt like our offensive line was going to be our strong point, and I still feel like that, he said. Those guys have done a great job responding to the challenge. As the spring ended, Brunson said he doesnt think the offensive unit or defensive unit has separated itself from the other, which is by design. They are about the same because weve got several kids going both ways and learning a new system right now, he said. Right now we are very basic. We lay a foundation every year running basic I-formation plays and playing basic defense, and thats where we are right now. The Gators will continue to work on getting their full package on both sides of the ball throughout the summer and will have everything in place when the season opens in the fall. As to which Crowson brother, Adam or Ben, will be the starting quarterback, that competition could be ongoing throughout the fall and into the season. And Brunson isnt worried about which brother will be on the eld. Adam and Ben Crowson are going to be just ne at quarterback, Brunson said. We are going to play both of them. They both bring skill sets to the table that we need, and we feel like we can use both of them. Football, cheerleader, soccer registration The Crestview Parks and Recreation Department will have registration for the youth football, cheerleading and soccer programs throughout June and through July 4. Football is open for those ages 6-11, soccer will have leagues for ages U6-U15 and cheerleading is for those ages 4-12. Cost for all programs is $65 per child.

The couple met in 2002 while working at the Crestview Police Saturday, MAY 19 2012 By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Crestview City Clerk Betsy Roy requested the city council allow her to reduce the Utilities Billing Department hours after a month-long study determined that few water customers visited the services City Hall ofce in the early morning and late afternoon hours. In October 2010, as a cost-cutting measure, the city implemented a fourday, 10-hour workweek, with administrative ofces closed on Fridays. In July 2011, however, at the request of water customers, the utilities department opened for business on Fridays again. But the department kept the 10-hour workdays. Roy requested reverting back to an 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. schedule Monday through Friday after reducing the number of cashiers from three to two. She also requested the same hours be kept in the citys payroll department. Roys request was unanimously approved at council meeting. Our anticipated time of hours change would be June 25, Roy stated in a letter to the council. Scheduling with this reduction (in staff) would be greatly enhanced by the change in hours and would make sure we have full coverage and availability of customer service, Roy wrote in the letter.

Coleman is the citys rst Citizen of the Year. The Crestview City Council voted unanimously Monday to create what will become an annual award to be presented to an outstanding resident. The council not only selected Coleman as the rst recipient, but named the award in her honor. I have decided that the Citizen of the Year award will be known as the Mother Coleman Award, council President Ben Iannucci III said. We have to gure out the logistics of it. I think that is a good idea, council member Charles Baugh Jr. said. I cant think of anyone right now that has the spirit of (former) Mayor (George) Whitehurst and our other great citizens than Mrs. Coleman. Mrs. Coleman, thank you for being the mother of all of us. I dont think theres any more tting name than the Mother Coleman Award, council member Robyn Helt said. What I love about Mrs. Coleman is, she is always here and lets us know how she thinks were doing. If she doesnt think highly of us, shed let us know, too. Coleman is familiar to council members for her regular attendance at council meetings and for her praise when she believes the body is acting in the best interests of the city. She is equally known for not hesitating to chastise council members or others whom she feels are pulling us down. A retired nurse and member of the Mt. Zion AME Church, Coleman is active in multiple civic causes, including tutoring and supporting incarcerated youths, improving educational opportunities for underprivileged children, and encouraging community involvement. Last summer Coleman spearheaded a campaign to raise supplies for victims of the Alabama tornadoes, enlisting the aid of Crestviews police and re departments to gather the donations.

LocalCrestview News Bulletin | A3Saturday, May 19, 2012Department, where John was an officer and Misty worked in dispatch. The two dated a few years before they married and have been together for more than 10 years. John is a loving husband and he will be a wonderful father, Misty said. The kids all love him. The two have always wanted to have children, but after years of unsuccessful tries, they began to seek medical help. Even though the doctors did not find anything wrong with us, for some reason we have not been able to have a child, Misty said. This happens to some couples and is very difficult to accept. Last December, the Cooks made the decision to start the adoption process. We have a lot of love to give and we will raise a happy, healthy and responsible adult, Misty said. We are staying positive and hope that God will bless our family. Misty has no doubts that both she and John will make great parents for a child that needs a home. I see how John is with our nephews and nieces when they come to visit, she said. We often take care of them, but then they have to go home. Misty said officials with the adoption agency visited her and John multiple times, interviewed the pair, fingerprinted them and checked their backgrounds before approving them for adoption. The first part of the adoption process was completed March 15. The process of adoption is very complicated and expensive, Misty said. we will need to raise funds. The adoption costs around $22,000. This sum includes support, training, home study services, birth parent expenses and legal fees. The Cooks used their savings to pay for the first $7,000, and continue to save more to cover additional costs. Misty also created a website to solicit donations. The site has raised $2,500, but theyre hoping to raise enough money by July 8 to move forward with the adoption. If there are only 500 people to donate $10 each, we will reach our fundraising goal of $5,000, Misty said. 3448732 Specializing in Vehicles under $6,000 for you and your family10% OFF with Coupon for a Maximum Savings of $500958B Hwy 90 Crestview, Florida (850) 588-9999www.crestviewcars.com 2074877 HIGHEST PRICES PAID FOR YOUR PRECIOUS METALS!

CHANGE from page A1hours, Roy had her staff count the number of customers who came to the department on a daily basis during the month of March. The number of citizens that are served by the utility department from 7 a.m. until 8 a.m. is 1.37, on average, Roy reported. On 10 of Marchs 22 business days, no customers called at the department at all between 7 and 8 a.m. From the hours of 5 to 6 p.m., the average number of citizens served is 3.15, she wrote. This number is skewed slightly by the number of late customers on (billing) due date. Roy assured the council we have absolutely no problem remaining open ve days a week, but based on the low usage in the current rst and last hours of operation, she asked to reduce opening hours with the understanding that on bill-due dates, we would have somebody here until 6 p.m. to make sure all payments received that day are processed. On a recent afternoon, Crestview resident Forrest Jenkins stopped by the of ce to have water turned on at his new home. Jenkins said he foresaw no problem with the reduction in hours. If people have something they need to get done, theyre going to make time for it, he said. I didnt even know they had early hours. I gured they had regular of ce hours like other government of ces.

LocalA4 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, May 19, 2012 2074873 Dishonorable Plus FREECOUPONING CLASSES AND AND AND Seating is LIMITED so RSVP: 2076012 By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Monday evenings meeting of the Crestview City Council began with a brief ceremony to swear in the bodys newest member. Crestview businessman Thomas Gordon took the seat vacated by Phillip Berezo, who resigned at the conclusion of the councils March 26 meeting. First Judicial Circuit Judge Michael Flowers began the ceremony by commending Gordon for taking on the often-difcult role of a public servant. Public service is one of the callings someone can have, to serve their community, Flowers said. Youll hear a great deal about the honest mistakes you might make and you may not hear too much about the hard work you do. I applaud your decision to serve. It is a high calling. After being sworn in, Gordon remained at the podium and asked council President Ben Iannucci III, Do I have to make a speech? You can come and sit down now, Iannucci said to laughter. To applause from members of the audience, including his parents Brady and Edna Gordon, his sister Anne and her husband Frank Sauls, Thomas signed in. City of Crestview, you now have your new, full 2012 city council, Iannucci said to the audience. Student members of the Bob Sikes Elementary School student council attended the meeting to see how municipal government works. These students took time out of their personal lives to be with us tonight, Iannucci said to applause. In other matters, the council: Heard from resident Landrum Edwards, who said he has heard salt water was intruding into ground water as far north as three miles above Niceville. Edwards also said the city should build something other than a sports complex if the tourist development tax passes. Discussed a program to recognize employees who go above and beyond their regular duties. City staff will put together a proposal whereby department heads would offer the names of exemplary employees on a regular basis. Discussed inspections of city water service back ow valves. Council member Tim Grandberry suggested the service, required by ordinance, could be performed cheaper if a city inspector did the job instead of an outside contractor, lessening the cost water service customers are obligated to pay for the annual inspection. Discussed several options for providing building inspections as the city building inspector retired and nobody responded to an ad searching for a replacement because of the low salary offered. Council member Robyn Helt moved to up the salary to $60,000 and t the position into the citys personnel structure. The motion passed unanimously. Unanimously accepted an $8,500 proposal by Ashley Pyrotechnics to provide the citys Fourth of July reworks display. Learned that council member Charles Baugh Jr. has been appointed president of the Northwest Florida League of Cities, giving Crestview more clout in the organization. Was congratulated by interim city attorney Jerome Miller for holding an almost a perfect meeting. A perfect meeting is when I dont have to say anything.Special to the News BulletinLocal military service members awarded one of the militarys highest medals, the Purple Heart, were honored May 8 with the opening of the Purple Heart Memorial Highway in Okaloosa County. A portion of John Sims Parkway, from the intersection of State Road 85 to the OkaloosaWalton County line, was designated by the Florida Legislature to honor those men and women killed or wounded in combat. Designation ceremonies took place at Doolittle Park in Valparaiso. Representatives of veterans organizations, the uniformed military and Purple Heart recipients and their families participated. A retired Air Force chief master sergeant inspired the legislation. Wayland Davis of Choctaw Beach, a 30-year Air Force veteran, urged Sen. Don Gaetz urging to name a prominent roadway in Okaloosa County in recognition of the sacrices of all Purple Heart recipients. Wayland Davis didnt come to me for a tax break or government contact or an appointment to a position, Gaetz said. His only request was that those who have shed their blood for our freedom would not be forgotten in their own community. Gaetz secured approval of the Legislatures upper chamber for the measure. Rep. Matt Gaetz (RFort Walton Beach) shepherded the proposal through the House of Representatives.Roadway designated Purple Heart Memorial Highway Valves, employee recognition and building inspector also discussedGordon joins city councilMembers of the Bob Sikes Elementary School student council stand to be recognized while attending Monday evenings meeting of the Crestview City Council.

The lunch-and-learn session gave area women a lesson in the potential hazards of exposure to ultraviolet radiation, from the sun or through tanning beds. There are three wave lengths with ultraviolet radiation UVA, UVB and UVC, Freier said. UVC isnt a concern for skin cancer; however, ultraviolet radiation exposure is the main factor responsible for skin cancers. Basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma are all on the rise. Freier said that a good sun protection factor or sunscreen is essential to avoiding skin cancer. Because you cant see the suns rays with the human eye you dont automatically associate it with harming your body, Freier said. Sun damage to your skin cells can be avoided. More and more studies show a direct link to skin cancers from skin damage in indoor tanning beds or booths. Lets face it, overexposure of any kind to UV rays is harmful. Freier said that skin care awareness starts with ABCD. Remember ABCD. Watch any unusual spots and check them for: Asymmetry does the spot match the other half? Border do the edges appear ragged or irregular? Color is it the same color all over or deeper or unusual shades? Diameter is it larger than a pencil eraser, and I caution you that sometimes a skin cancer can be smaller than that. You have to be aware, he cautioned. Dr. David Herf took the lecture from a surgeons focus. The highest age rising age bracket for skin cancer is in 16 to 29 year olds, Herf said. I have patients of all ages with skin cancers. Some see an abnormal rise on their skin and pick it off. They come to me when it is has grown back with time. The rise in the number of skin cancers comes from the sun bathers and the indoor tanning use. Herf told the group that he recommends daily use of SPF products at a level 30 or 40 for skin protection. He also cautioned about children and skin care. You have to use a waterproof SPF product with children who are playing in the sun and you have to be diligent about reapplying it, Herf said. Herf also suggested that women who have never had a complete skin check-up from a physician have one on an annual basis. Skin cancers can form and grow without any pain or discomfort and people tend to ignore what they dont know, Herf said. New Healthy Womans Advisory Council members were also introduced at the lunch-and-learn. Jackie Colmon, Angela Evans, Sara Fordyce, Cecilia Fuller, Robyn Helt, April Linton, Edina Mann, Susan Petrey, Ashley Rogers, Shavone Scott, Katie Sharon, Colette Waite, and Carolyn Williams will serve for 2012. PAULA KELLEY Y | News BulletinSurgeon David Herf was a guest speaker at the May lunch-and-learn skin cancer awareness session held recently at North Okaloosa Medical Center.

Andrew Schneider at the scene. The incident snarled lunchtime trafc for more than an hour after it occurred around 12:15 p.m. What investigators do know is a red Chevrolet pickup driven by a 52-yearold man struck the drivers side of a late model Honda Civic, shattering the side windows and stripping off the cars steel skin and revealing internal structural parts of the door. The impact of the 33-year-old female drivers head against her windshield shattered the front window. The driver of the Honda was cited for failure to yield the right of way. Schneider said. Her car was resting at a northeasterly angle across both eastbound lanes of the road. The pickup traveled westbound for about 50 yards, crossing the eastbound lanes, smashing through a brick fencepost and into trees by the side of the road after jumping the sidewalk. The driver of the Honda and a boy estimated to be around 9 years old were transported by Okaloosa County EMS to an area hospital. A Crestview police ofcer described the boy as in bad shape with apparent head trauma. Schneider said the boy was too big for a child safety seat and was riding in the back seat on the drivers side. He was in the back seat right where the impact occurred, Schneider said. Occupants of both vehicles were wearing seat belts. The driver of the pickup was arrested for driving with a suspended license. The truck was being followed at the time of the accident by the drivers elderly father who was driving a late model red Ford Mustang that was not involved in the accident. The father was cited for allowing an unlicensed motorist to drive his truck. Crestview police Lt. Eddie Lehneis identied the driver of the Mustang as a resident of the Crestview Manor nursing home who and is under hospice care. Ive worked a lot of accidents but Ive never seen one like this, Lehneis said. How his (the truck drivers) daddy avoided hitting him in that Mustang I dont know. Hes not even supposed to be driving. Its a big tangled story. As the trafc scene was investigated, police shut down both eastbound lanes, routing trafc north on Coleman Street. Only one westbound lane was open during the investigation.Special to the News BulletinDavid Lloyd Cudney, 33, of 3101 S.

The ceremony concluded with a special presentation by Nick Gupta, a Pensacola High School International Baccalaureate student, who surprised each senior with a free laptop for college. Working through the Santa Rosa Education Foundation, he raised the funds to purchase the 18 laptops. The fundraising effort was initiated by Nick and his brother, Nathan Gupta, three years ago for the Take Stock in Children graduates of Santa Rosa County, and was extended to those in Escambia County the following year. This year, with Nathan now in college, Nick assumed the sole responsibility for raising the funds for all three counties in the Panhandle. Nick presented the laptops alongside Fort Walton Beach High School students Tyler Margaratten and Angela Roy, who have accepted the challenge of replicating the Guptas efforts to raise funds and purchase laptops for the 27 Okaloosa County Take Stock in Children scholars who are slated to graduate in 2013. Okaloosa County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Alexis Tibbetts was also in attendance to honor the graduating seniors, as well as welcome 11 new students into the Take Stock in Children program.

SP O RTS www.crestviewbulletin.comSaturday, May 19, 2012By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com Former National Basketball Association star Tom Hammonds and Major League baseball standout John Bale top the list of honorees in the inaugural class of the Crestview Athletic Hall of Fame that was announced at Fridays Red and White game at Jack Foster Stadium. The rest of those honored in the class are former Bulldog baseball standouts Dale Rice Sr., Terry Taylor, Dexter Day, Tim Gillis and Ricky Despaux. Hammonds coach Ken Rogers, who led the boys basketball team to the 1985 state championship, will be inducted as well. Bob Lynn, the longtime football public address announcer at Jack Foster Stadium will be a part of the class because of his lifetime of service to the Bulldog program. The nal individual honor goes to wrestler Eric Flinchum, who won the schools only individual state championship in the sport, claiming the Class 1A title in the 189-pound weight class in 2002. Several of the great Bulldog teams of the past also are a part of the inaugural class. The boys basketball teams from 1983-84, 1884-85 and 1986-87 will go into the hall of fame, as will the girls basketball teams from 1985 and 1991. The 2002 Class 3A state runner-up football team is in the class, as are the 1999 state champion boys weightlifting team and the 2002 varsity cheerleading squad that captured a national championship. The Hall of Fame Class of 2012 will be inducted at a luncheon Sept. 14 and introduced to the fans that night at halftime of the Crestview-Bolles football game at Jack Foster Stadium. We are putting in 10 individuals and several teams, and it is a big class, Crestview head football coach and athletic director Kevin Pettis said. Im extremely proud of this class. Out of the 10 individuals, there are a couple of Cincinnati Reds on there, a Los Angeles Dodger and a New York Yankee. Tom Hammonds played for the Denver Nuggets and the (Minnesota) Timberwolves. And then there are all the teams with Ken Rogers winning the rst state championship here (in any sport). Who I feel is a shoe-in for next years class is Matt Brunson, who took them to the state runner-up in football in 2002. Pettis said he received more than 200 nominations, and more than 80 Bulldogs were nominated. I was shocked at the number of people that emailed me, he said. A lot of them were nominating the same people. The guys that got in were guys that were nominated four or ve different times by different people. Pettis said he understands some people might be upset because their nominee isnt in this years class. and he reminded fans that a name stays in the nomination pool ve years. You can never do anything like this without hurting peoples feelings, and thats not what it is intended to be, he said. Its intended for us to kind of embrace what we have done here at Crestview High School and celebrate the past and build on that tradition. I hope everybody that feels a little bit slighted or that their nominee wasnt heard will know that every nominee was heard, and they will be on the ballot again next year. But now is a time to celebrate the members of the 2012 class, and Pettis is anxiously looking forward to September when the Bulldog greats will be honored. I cant wait for the Bolles game to bring them home and have the fans cheer them one last time, Pettis said. By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER Before spring football practice 2012 wrapped up Friday night with a game against Chipley, the Gators still were adding the nishing touches to what has been a rebuilding spring as head coach Matt Brunson looks to ll 18 starting positions this fall. By all indications it has been a successful effort, with several players still ghting for a spot in the lineup this fall. Weve had a good spring, Brunson said Tuesday as he looked ahead to the game Friday. We are nishing up, and we have a very stiff test against the Chipley Tigers, the defending 1A runner-up, and it will be a very good measuring stick for us. The kids have done great and have worked hard. Theyve done everything weve asked them to do, and we will see where we are Friday. The players said practices have gone smoothly in Brunsons second spring at his alma mater. Things have been going pretty good, offensive lineman Taylor Brown said. It is easier because you know what he expects and how to do it and how he works. Weve been working hard and we know what to do so, I think we will have a pretty good shot of beating Chipley. D.J. Thomas has enjoyed the physical nature of the spring practices. I think the spring drills are going real good, he said. The coaches have the old school stuff going on where you hit them right in the mouth that type of ball and everybody is loving it. We are going to let people know that no matter how big you are and whoever youve got, we are going to come hit you in the mouth every play no matter what the score is. Brunson continued to be pleasantly surprised by the play off the offensive line throughout the spring. I felt like our offensive line was going to be our strong point, and I still feel like that, he said. Those guys have done a great job responding to the challenge. As the spring ended, Brunson said he doesnt think the offensive unit or defensive unit has separated itself from the other, which is by design. They are about the same because weve got several kids going both ways and learning a new system right now, he said. Right now we are very basic. We lay a foundation every year running basic I-formation plays and playing basic defense, and thats where we are right now. The Gators will continue to work on getting their full package on both sides of the ball throughout the summer and will have everything in place when the season opens in the fall. As to which Crowson brother, Adam or Ben, will be the starting quarterback, that competition could be ongoing throughout the fall and into the season. And Brunson isnt worried about which brother will be on the eld. Adam and Ben Crowson are going to be just ne at quarterback, Brunson said. We are going to play both of them. They both bring skill sets to the table that we need, and we feel like we can use both of them.
