Holt girl seeks donations for seniors, not presents By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com HOLT Many birthday boys and girls xate on ashy gifts theyll receive. Railey Conner of Holt has a different perspective. Shes rejecting gifts today, her 12th birthday, and requesting donations for senior citizens in nursing homes. I think it would be better to donate than to receive gifts, she said. Railey wont miss the gifts, said Angie Holland, her mother. Its not a big deal to her like it is to the adults that nd out that what she is doing, she said. This marks the second year of Raileys Birthday Project. Last year, she donated gift bags to residents at Carrington Manor in Crestview. This year, Railey also will give gifts to residents at Safe and Secure Respite Care LLC in Crestview. The former has a special place in her heart. Its been the home of her greatgrandmother, Roxie Buchanan, 84, for the past two years. She and her mother regularly visit Buchanan, who has Alzheimers disease. Those visits inspired Raileys wish to bring Christmas joy to the elderly. When I visit her and see the other people in the nursing home, I see how lonely they are, Railey said. I think most people tend to think of needy children, which is great, but we forget about the elderly because they are not often seen out in public. Slippers, nightclothes, lotions and crossword puzzles are among donations that ll a spare room in the familys home. (Recipients) really enjoy the puzzles because it helps them pass the time, Railey said. They also like the new clothing we get them because it is something new to wear. About 60 nursing home residents should receive gifts come Christmas Eve, she said. Local businesses, churches and organizations posted project iers to aid the effort. First Baptist Church of Holt and Innerlight Surf and Skate locations in Fort Walton Beach and Destin set up donation drop boxes. Area residents have donated about $600, which the mother-daughter duo will use to buy gift-bag items, Railey said. But donations which far surpass the number of presents most 12-year-old girls receive havent met this years goal. I think we are almost there, but not quite there yet, Railey said. She has a plan if donations exceed expectations. Whatever we have left over, we will box up and donate them to other nursing homes in the area, she said. Shes a great girl, very sel ess, said Patti Snow, Carrington Manors administrator. Railey doesnt just talk the talk; she walks the walk, meeting personally with dependent seniors and getting to know them. She actually knows a lot of the residents here, so she personally knows what each one of them want for Christmas, Snow said. The residents really enjoy what she does for them. girls receive havent met nursing homes in the area, WANT TO DONATE? See a link to Railey Conners 12th Birthday Project Facebook page at crestviewbulletin.com Saturday, DECEMBER 15 2012 37th Year, Number 100 SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN Railey Conner, 11, sorts through donations for her 12th Birthday Project. She seeks donations for nursing home residents in lieu of presents for her Dec. 15 birthday. Birthday Project 2.0 Residents show support of dissolution Councilwoman criticizes mayors performance By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com LAUREL HILL Most residents who crowded First Baptist Church of Laurel Hills fellowship hall Tuesday night said this north county community should dissolve its city status. The City Council wanted residents input on whether it should place a dissolution option on an upcoming ballot. Resident Harold Jones comments on poor road conditions during a Nov. 15 council meeting spurred the town hall. Residents mainly discussed the main roads disrepair and expressed concerns about how their tax dollars were spent. Most favored dissolution. My position is that we are in the county, and we all need to make (the city of) Laurel Hill go away, Harold Jones said. Prevent burglaries during the holidays By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Thieves often prey on unsuspecting individuals amid the holidays hustle and bustle. However, armed with the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Of ce and Crestview Police Departments tips, you can avoid becoming a target. The biggest thing we get is people not properly locking up their cars and homes, said Ashley Bailey, a crime prevention specialist with Okaloosa County Sheriffs Of ce. Eighty to 85 percent of car burglaries are due to unlocked cars. Thieves who dont steal the vehicle still might take items from inside, Bailey said. They will take anything that isnt nailed down, from loose change to cellphones and iPads, Bailey said. Some items reveal personal information, which can lead to more problems like identity theft, of cials said. On the countys north side, thieves often target houses on large property with few surrounding neighbors, ofcials said, adding that burglary attempts happen in the daytime, too. WANT TO GO? The next Laurel Hill City Council meeting is 6 p.m. Jan. 8 at city hall. LAUREL HILL See DISSOLUTION A5 FROM STAFF REPORTS CRESTVIEW For some residents, Christmas decorating means untangling lights, hoping that one pesky strand will illuminate another year and getting the display up so they can move on to the next holiday chore. Others place each carefully planned strand to give the most visual pleasure to passing neighbors, a heartfelt Christmas present the owner shares with passers-by. Like any art, beauty can be solely in the eye of the beholder. One persons work of multi-colored glittering art is anothers tacky display of ostentation.

COMMUNITY www.crestviewbulletin.com Saturday, December 15, 2012 Page A2 OBITUARY LOCAL GOVERNMENT By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Gulf Power has a new, unwanted building that could become a recycling facility for the Hub City. The City Council on Monday unanimously approved accepting the electric utilitys gift. Theres just one catch: The city must dismantle and move the building. The structure originally a warehouse on Cadle Drive in southwest Crestview comes with no other conditions, Public Works Director Wayne Steele said. The 3,552-square-foot building is 96 feet long, 37 feet wide, was never occupied, has metal trusses, a metal roof, plywood walls and HardiePlank composite siding. The cost to dismantle the building would not affect the Public Works budget, Steele said. The Okaloosa Correctional Institutes inmate labor would dismantle and store components at Public Works until the council decides where to place the building and determines its purpose. We have been proactive in our recycling initiative. It would serve well as a recycling facility, Steele said. My recommendation would be to move it to behind the hospital by the re building on Brookmeade Drive. Councilman Tim Grandberry praised the donation and Steeles suggestion, and moved to accept the donation upon approval of the city attorney. Council President Ben Iannucci III, a proponent of introducing more green initiatives to Crestview, pronounced the suggestion as great. In other matters, the council: Unanimously approved an ordinance waiving collection of traf c impact fees for a 24-month trial. Its a very big step to move our business development forward, Iannucci said. Unanimously approved renewing Crestviews annual dues to Sister Cities International for 2013. The action followed a two-week visit last month by 36 Noirmoutier, France, guests. Unanimously approved placing an ad on a Crestview city map the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce will publish. Unanimously approved a contract for of ciating services at Crestview Recreation Department sports events. Hub City Sports Ofcials $56,300 winning bid is $8,700 less than the budgeted amount. The services had not been previously submitted for competitive bidding, Steele said. Unanimously approved having consultant Jack Dorman study the citys military compatibility update to the comprehensive plan. A workshop on the issue is at 8 a.m. Feb. 9 at city hall. Special to the News Bulletin CRESTVIEW Public Works employees Floyd Spence and Randy Broxson, received HERO awards at the Dec. 4 Okaloosa County Commission meeting for their assistance following a May 11 two-car accident. Spence and Broxson directed traf c around the accident site; helped move the uninjured driver of one car from danger; and simultaneously applied medical assistance to an injured mother and son. They provided moral support and rst aid until the police and an ambulance arrived on the scene. The Humanitarian Efforts Recognized by Okaloosa County award celebrates county employees who go beyond their jobs scope and do something humanitarian or heroic. The HERO award can include acts occurring outside work hours and submissions by people outside Okaloosa County staff. By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Networking with other cities elected leaders and learning innovative ways to meet Crestviews challenges are some bene ts of attending outof-town conferences, city council members said. For long-distance travel, though, council members would like some of their expenses reimbursed. Meeting in a Dec. 10 workshop to discuss travel expense reimbursement, council members said having Crestview represented at events like the regional and state League of Cities meetings has increased the citys stature. However, travel expense reimbursement money was excluded from the 2012-13 city budget, so city leaders must fund their own expenses. For trips no farther than Tallahassee, they willingly assume the expense, Councilman Charles Baugh Jr. said. If were gonna grow (as a city), we gotta go (to league meetings), Councilman Tom Gordon said. Reimbursement discussion originated in October when Council President Ben Iannucci III requested reimbursement for nearly $600 in expenses, including $239.27 for a one-night stay at the Florida League of Cities conference hotel in Kissimmee. He learned there was no budget item for travel reimbursement. We have done a lot as council members to have representation on various boards, Baugh said. People dont ask me Wheres Crestview? anymore, but now they know that Crestview is one of the largest cities we have in Northwest Florida because of our representation on the board. Travel reimbursement could come from the citys contingency fund or another line item if necessary, Finance Director Patti Beebe said. The Florida League of Cities can also reimburse some travel expenses, Baugh said. He offered to set aside a quarter of his councilmans compensation to help cover his travel expenses. City Clerk Betsy Roy said her of ce would review past travel expenses, examine the mayors budget and other budgets and bring recommendations for reimbursement options before the council for consideration.

However, north county shoppers wanting large electronics or appliances had better hurry. Everybody is getting down to crunch time, Tommy Rivers, the Crestview Sears manager, said. The big items are getting hard to get. Therell be sales going on almost daily. We get emails with new sales every morning. New merchandise arriving at stores is part of the plan for repeat business. All of our stores received some new toys this week that customers havent seen on the shelves yet, Wal-Mart district manager Jon Kurpil said. We actually had some reductions that came down this week in our toy department to spur a little more shopping. Local small businesses continue to offer bargains on everything from sewing machines to TVs, ATVs, clothing and tablet computers. On Dec. 12, the Red Raspberry Boutique on Main Street held a 12-1212 sale, at which the rst 12 customers and every 12th customer thereafter received a gift and 12 percent off select merchandise. Store clerk Cindy Holobaugh and storeowner Donna Howard said they noticed an increase in Main Street business that began on Black Friday. I think Main Street is doing well. I look up and down the street and see more cars and a lot of foot traf c, Holobaugh said. Donna always encourages people to spend Crestview money here in Crestview. She wishes people would look to Crestview rst and help the local economy. Kicking off the shopping season early with Thanksgiving evening sales, the Crestview Wal-Mart ended with a sluggish Black Friday morning. Other stores also noticed slower sales that day. Black Friday was a disappointment for us, Rivers said. We opened at 4 a.m., and it wasnt the usual rush. About mid-morning, the Wal-Mart customers stopped by. We didnt get busy until 9 a.m. but we stayed busy till 3 p.m. Business at Tractor Supply Co., which specializes in farm supplies, hardware and rural-themed giftware and toys, hasnt slacked off since the holiday shopping season began Nov. 23, Assistant Manager Jeff Roush said. Its been steady; nothing major, but steady, he said. While electronics and sporting goods continue to sell steadily, local stores have noticed a shift in holiday-speci c purchasing. Were seeing a slowdown as far as Christmas decorations, Kurpil said. I think most everybody has their trees up. Now, the focus has shifted from trima-tree to trim-a-package: bows and boxes and gift wrap, that sort of thing. Given an extra shopping weekend between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, shopkeepers said they will still offer special sales to help nudge undecided or last-minute shoppers, but urged customers to buy must-haves soon. We get special deals every day, Sears Assistant Manager Vickie Speakman said. This year, the (Craftsman) Bolt On tool is the new thing. Customers are really asking for it, but we have just a few left. BRIAN HUGHES | News Bulletin At left, Local merchants, including the Crestview Sears store, hope to attract more shoppers with almost daily sales and specials as they count down to Christmas. At right, Vickie Speakman, the Crestview Sears assistant manager, counts a dwindling inventory of Craftsman Bolt On modular tools, which she said is this years must-have gift.

Special to the FAITH BRIEFS When I was growing up in Crestview, we decorated the house inside and out. It was not quite like the display in National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, but lights went up outside the house and we got a real tree and decorated it. Mom painted a picture in the living rooms big picture window. We were preparing for celebrating Christs birth. Not unlike the Magi. Present-day astronomers, in Christs time, were priestly men called stargazers. The term Magi possibly referred to a certain Persian priestly order. Let me paint you a picture of Matthew 2: 1-12: Several men gaze into the heavens, day in and day out, for particular signs. Then, it happened. A very unusual star appeared from nowhere. To these men, it was a sign that someone very special would be born or had been born. They excitedly checked the stars origin, its continuing appearance, and its unusual brilliance. They tracked the star to Christ in the manger and paid tribute. Today, we prepare for vacations in a similar way. These men needed to plan a trip. They decided how many would go, provisions needed, gifts to take as tribute, best routes, and their destination. Preparation sometimes took two years. AAA couldnt tell them what interstates and highways to take. They received no recommendations for restaurants or hotels. Servants may have handled these duties. Today, we get in the car and go. We stop at a motel, spend the night and continue the journey the next day. However, ancient people planned for hardships, rested several days before continuing onward, and sometimes bought more animals during the journey because of sickness or injury. Then the big day came when they started the journey. There is no known diary for the Magi, but I imagine they experienced sandstorms, desert heat, robbers and thieves. They probably couldnt nd water, encountered path hazards and lost servants. At some point, the star disappeared, but they continued their journey. Then they entered Israels borders and continued on to Jerusalem to see the king. Herod the Great was ruler during Jesus birth. The Magi expected to nd the new King of the Jews in the palaces ne splendor, but he was not there. Herod, half-Jewish and half-Edomite, asked the priests and scribes about the Messiahs birth. Armed with new information about Jesus birth, the Magi continued on to Bethlehem. Here, they found the Christ child who was no longer an infant and they worshipped him. The men bowed, acknowledged Christ as King, and presented Him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Gold the nest of all medals; the only metal t for a king indicated the childs divinity. Frankincense is the gift for a priest. People used this sweet perfume when they made sacri ces during temple worship. Priests open the way for people to nd God. Jesus made it possible for us to enter the very presence of God. Myrrh a gift for the dying was used in spices in the burial cloth that Jesus was wrapped in. Jesus came into this world to die for our sins. This year, as you prepare for Christmas Day, seek the King of Kings who has opened the way for us to enter Gods presence. He died on the cross at Calvary for our sins. Merry Christmas to you. May God bless you richly. The Rev. Albert Corey is pastor at Oak Ridge Assembly of God in Crestview. REV.

December 5, 2012 Paul Lux December 15, 2012 Supervisor of Elections Okaloosa County, Florida Nevertheless, two displays recently caught our eye. Coming into Crestview on U.S. Highway 90 from the west, after rounding the curve past Yellow River, one cant help noticing the Powell familys long, low, single-story home overlooking a pond. Delicate blue-white LEDs line the driveway and cast a glow from snow ake decorations hanging from the homes eves. A drive north on Old Bethel Road yields a surreal blue glow, which, upon rounding a curve, yields a rustic country home with lines defined in blue lights. Blue lights also climb several trees on the front yard and the driveways entrance, enhancing the annual display for which the home is noted. LIGHTS from page A1 BURGLARIES from page A1 BRIAN HUGHES | News Bulletin White LEDs trim the Powell home on U.S. Highway 90 West. Burglaries particularly happen when thieves see evidence of valuable merchandise a box for a large HDTV, for instance that might be inside the home. People should not keep boxes of large purchases outside, near their trash cans, for everyone that drives by to see, Bailey said. They should break them down and put them inside the trash. Patrolling of cers can help, too. Okaloosa residents can add their home addresses to the Vacation Security Check website, and officers will check their homes when possible. (See crestviewbulletin.com for the link. Hover over the News tab and click Law Enforcement.) Residents should give a one-week notice before their trip and list family, friends and neighbors who might have reason to stop by. The Crestview Police Department typically sees a slight increase in property crime during the holiday season, according to Public Information Of cer Lt. Andrew Schneider, who suggested several ways to deter would-be criminals. Tips include: Have adequate exterior lighting; a motion-sensitive light is recommended for backyards, a department news release stated. Trim trees and shrubs to eliminate hiding spots that would allow potential break-ins. Keep an inventory of expensive household items computers, televisions and their serial numbers. Purchase an alarm system for peace of mind. Form a neighborhood watch group. Im for it, said Deborah Adams, a Laurel Hill School teacher. If Laurel Hill is no longer a city, that does not mean that they are going to erase those letters off the map. A few residents favored Laurel Hill remaining a city. Despite the citys high debt and low reserves, Mike Blizzard said the likelihood of Okaloosa County taking the task, postdissolution, would be a pipe dream. Were not going to be in any better shape than we are now, he said, adding the sole difference would be the areas municipality loss. The city has $380,000 in reserves; just $272,000 is available at the citys discretion. This could cover infrastructure, paying down debt or equipment purchases. However, about 14 miles of roadway need repairs; about 55 percent of them need asphalt resurfacing, which would cost about $60,000 per mile, Okaloosa County Public Works Director John Hofstad said. The remainder would require reconstruction, which would cost two to three times as much. Florida Rep. Doug Broxson, Okaloosa County Commissioner Nathan Boyles and Hofstad offered moral support but did not express stances on the dissolution issue. However, Hofstad gave the issue perspective. We just want to be very clear that if your goal is to dissolve the city and become unincorporated in Okaloosa County, its not like we show up the next day and start repaving roads, Hofstad said after the meeting. We have a process we go through. The county commission must approve funding for road repairs, and thats just part of the lengthy process, he said. Nevertheless, we certainly want to help out Laurel Hill where we can ... and we certainly will in the future. During the meeting, an audience member asked the council to give input. Council Chairman Larry Hendren and co-chairman Robby Adams said they favored dissolution. Councilman Clifton Hall said he wants Laurel Hill to remain a city. Council members Betty Williamson, Willie Mae Toles and Mayor Joan Smith expressed no preference. While addressing the issue, Toles shared her dissatisfaction with the current mayor. Laurel Hill was all right until she got here, she said. The audience applauded the statement. Hendren encouraged residents to call city hall with questions on the matter and do research before deciding on the issue. Resident Scott Moneypenny agreed. The citizens of Laurel Hill need all the information that is possibly available before making a decision to dissolve a city, he said. Because once you lose the infrastructure, there is going to be problems that people cannot foresee. The next council meeting will be at 6 p.m. Jan. 8 at city hall. Harold Jones was one of several residents who spoke in favor of Laurel Hills dissolution during Tuesday nights town hall meeting at First Baptist Church of Laurel Hill.

SPORTS www.crestviewbulletin.com Saturday, December 15, 2012 A Page 8 Section By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com LAUREL HILL Sometimes, the shots just dont fall. The Laurel Hill boys basketball team had one of those nights Monday as the Hoboes hosted Jay. Laurel Hill missed jump shots, layups and, yes, free throws. All the misses led to a loss: the Royals beat the Hoboes 54-37. Laurel Hills shooting struggles have become familiar to coach Kent Zessin. Rather than pass blame to his players, Zessin takes responsibility for his teams poor performance. Mentally, we werent just focused on this one, he said. Jay came out ready to play. And I think a lot of it is my fault. We had a game plan in and we didnt do a good job executing that plan. We are just struggling shooting the ball right now. Further, numerous turnovers led to easy Royal baskets as Jay took the lead 4-2. Max Smith gave the Hoboes a quick 2-0 lead off the opening tip. The Royals tied the game on a Marshal Thomas score that started a 13-0 Jay run. Lane Strickland scored for Laurel Hill (2-4), stopping the Jay run. The teams traded baskets throughout the rst quarters remainder, but the Hoboes couldnt cut into the Royal lead as turnovers and poor shooting plagued Laurel Hill. We are having way too many turnovers, Zessin said. Our turnover ratio is way too high. Weve got to cut those down. Jay led 33-18 at the half and seemingly had the game well in control. The Hoboes came out strong in the third quarter, scoring six quick points to shave the Royal lead to 33-24. Smith sparked the rally with a pair of baskets around a score by Tanner McQuaig. Smiths second basket came with 5:52 left in the third quarter. It was another four-and-a-half minutes before Laurel Hill scored again. By the time Josh Phillips scored a Hobo basket with 1:28 left in the period, the Royals were up 41-26. Laurel Hill never got closer to the Royals than 13 points when Tamaria Calloway scored with 1:53 left in the game. Calloway led the Hoboes in scoring with 10 points. Smith added eight points and Strickland six points. By BRANDON WALKER 315-4476 | @BrandonWnwfdn bwalker@nwfdailynews.com FORT WALTON BEACH Fort Walton Beach head basketball coach John Lavin knows that basketball can be a game of runs. And his team had the biggest in Tuesday nights District 2-6A showdown against Crestview. Leading 24-22 with just more than two minutes left in the second quarter, Fort Walton Beach ended the rst half on a 12-2 spurt, giving the Vikings a 12-point lead one the team would never relinquish in a 66-54 win. Proud of the effort tonight, Lavin said. We did a good job to establish the lead there at the end of the half. That gave us a big cushion coming out after halftime, which we needed. My hat is off to Crestview. I thought they were the more aggressive team in the second half. University of South Florida signees Drew Davis and John Egbunu combined to score 36 points; Davis led the way with a season-high 21 points. The 5-foot-10 guard scored six of FWBs 12 points in the half-ending run, and closed the game with eight straight free throws, sealing the victory after Crestview narrowed the gap to 57-51 with under two minutes left. Its always a gamble to either foul and make them shoot free throws or just try to come back trading baskets, said Crestview head coach Ken Meisner. We chose to foul, and Davis just knocked them all down. Davis free throws stopped a furious Crestview rally that included eight of Ronnie Baylarks teamleading 19. When Baylark hit a three-pointer with 1:25 to go, Crestview crept to within striking distance for the rst time since the second quarter. Ronnie had a lot of pressure on him tonight, because coach Lavin and his team had a good game plan, said Meisner, but he did a great job of ghting through that pressure. Egbunu had 15 points and eight boards for the Vikings, including a rimrattling 360-degree dunk with ve minutes to play that brought the FWB fans in attendance to their feet. Israel Black also reached double-digit scoring for the Vikings with 12, and Blake James added nine, all in the rst half. For Crestview, Clay Hancocks hot shooting kept the Bulldogs close, as the forward connected on four from behind the three-point arc and nished with 14 points. Jonathan Buckelew added 13 for the Bulldogs, who fell to 2-7 overall and 0-2 in district play. I told the kids that nobody likes to lose, Meisner said, but we competed hard. They jumped out in front of us with that big run at the end of the half, but we kept ghting. Now 5-2 overall and 2-0 in district play, Fort Walton Beach takes an extended break before returning to action Friday, Dec. 21 to host Niceville.

NICK TOMECEK | Daily News Sanders leads Gators to district win By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER A slow start to the 2012-13 basketball season got a little better for the Baker boys basketball team on Tuesday. Trailing Freeport by six points early in the fourth quarter, the Gators refused to fade away. Powered by Garrett Sanders 24 points, the Baker boys basketball team picked up a 53-47 win over the Bulldogs in a hardfought District 2-1A game. Sanders wasnt a one-man show; Brooks Taylor joined him in double gures with 11 points, and Justin Morgan had 10 points. The longtime rivals both in rebuilding years battled hard from the opening tip. We never quit, and as a coach you have to look at the positives, Baker coach Mike Martello said. We made some silly mistakes at times, and thats because we dont have a lot of experience and depth. Every time you play Freeport, they are going to play hard. It was a battle just as we expected. Sanders had a quick start, scoring ve points in the plays rst three minutes before Freeport (2-6, 1-3) came back behind the hot shooting of Curtiss Parker. Parker, who led the Bulldogs with 20 points, hit back-to-back baskets, giving Freeport a 9-7 lead at the rst quarters end. Neither team could pull away throughout the second and third quarters. A Parker 3-pointer gave the Bulldogs a 14-9 lead with 6:15 left in the rst half, but the lead didnt last long. Wilder Kersey hit a 3-pointer for Baker (3-4, 1-1) his only basket of the night and cut the Bulldog advantage to 14-12. Sanders followed with a basket to tie at 14-14. The game remained nip-andtuck and was tied 37-37 after the third quarter. Ryder Newmans and Parkers three-point baskets opening the fourth quarter put the Bulldogs up 43-37. Taylor scored Bakers next eight points, putting the Gators in front 45-43 with 5:41 left in the game. A basket by Sanders made the score 47-43, and the Bulldogs never got closer than three points the rest of the way. Freeport coach David Burke said he expected the outcome. It played out like I gured it would, he said. I thought Baker would give us a good game. Its hard to beat Baker at Baker because coach Martello does a lot of good things up here. Newman joined Parker in double gures for the Bulldogs with 11 points. No other Freeport player scored more than six points.
