A letter from the sheriff
Morris: A safe New Year
is something to celebrate
To all the citizens of North Okaloosa County,
Starting a New Year should be a time of optimism and setting
new goals, with nothing more important than ensuring the safety of
your loved ones and neighbors. The men and women of the Okaloosa
Sheriff's Office are
dedicated to the public
safety mission each and
every day. On New
Year's Eve, however,
they must become

prevent the kind of

about each year drunk

related crashes in our
This past year, the Oksloosa Sheriff's Office set a record in
the number of drunk driving arrests, reaching 592 as of this past
Thursday. That number is partly a reflection of our zero tolerance
policy towards drunk driving, as well as enhanced training in making
arrests that will stick, and the willingeass of citizens to use their
cell phones to help Identify impaired drivers endangering other
people on our tol roadways.
Our agency plans to contise that mission, and will be

As far as this New Yearst's Eve is concerned, the Okaloosa
Sheriff's Office will be adding at least eight deputies to our major
roadways, including State Road 85 and Highway 90.
Our hope is it's a pacefu night, void of sirens and needless
tragedies. All party-goers who need to travel should be making plans
for designated drivers, taxi cabs or Iimo service. A safe New Year's
Eve for all of us will REALLY be something to celebrate!

Say 'Aaah' if you're sick of the pesky flu bug
News Bulletin Reporter
Whether you feel like it or not, the flu and
cold season is here.
According to local experts, the season began
in November and continues through March.
The peak season begins in January and lasts
until late February. While you or someone you
know may have been sick lately, you may or
may not have had the flu.
Determining whether someone has the flu is
one of the most difficult challenges for a doctor.
Dr. Indu Christopher recently moved to
Crestview from Pennsylvania. Her family prac-
tice is opening in January.
The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention estimate that 35 to 50 million peo-
ple contract the flu during each flu season:
Children are two to three times more likely
than adults to get sick with the flu.
Every year, five to 20 percent of the popula-
tion is affected by flu-like symptoms,
Christopher says. Every year more than
200,000 people are hospitalized because of the

common cold and the flu is that flu
symptoms come on with a boom."

flu and 35,000 people die from complications
caused by the virus.
The difficult part of Christopher's job is
determining whether or not a patient has the
common cold which can be caused by literal-
ly hundreds of different viral and bacteria
.strains or influenza.
"The difference between the common cold
and the flu is that flu symptoms come on with
a boom/' she explains. "The severity of the
symptoms is the only way to differentiate
between the common cold and the flu."
Flu symptoms include fever, headache,
tiredness, dry cough, sore throat, nasal conges-
tion and body aches. While many of these
symptoms are common with a cold, fevers are
usually not, Christopher says.
There are three different common type of
influenza. Each year, the flu vaccine is made,
based on educated predictions on the type of
flu that can be expected, according to-'
Immunization is the only way to avoid the
flu, she says.
The shot is effective for four to five months.
When a person gets a flu shot, they are injected
with a dead virus. Once in the system, it builds
antibodies that fight off the flu.
Lynn Garrett, a pharmacist at the
Prescription Shoppe on North Ferdori
Boulevard, says that he's mostly filling pre-
scriptions for cold-like symptoms, not the flu.
"I've seen an increase in activity in the last
week or so, but I think it's because of other
viral infections, not the actual flu," he says.
"At this time no antiviral is being used to
indicate that there is a flu problem in the area.'

Rentz's Kettle waves bye to Crestview after more than 15 years
News Bulletin Reporter
It was one of the biggest days
that Rentz's Kettle has ever had.
It was also its saddest.
After more than 15 years the
little restaurant with the great
dumplings and red beans and
rice has dosed its doors forever.
"It was a great run and we're
sad to see it end," said restaurant
manager Cathy Jones.
The restaurant was originally
owned by Linda Rentz, who
began offering her special home
cooking on Ferdon Boulevard
where the Ivy Leaf Florist is now
"It was usually a lease issue
that would cause us to change
locations," said Jones.
After three different locations
in her first five years, Linda final-
ly settled on Main Street just
south of Woodruff.
But Rentz died suddenly in
July of 2004 and the fate of the
restaurant suddenly was

belonged to her son," Jones said.

restaurant going a least until the

here but both of my daughters
too. Katie's mother, Carrie

Many of those customers
were saddened when they heard
the news that the "Kettle" was
serving its last meal on Friday.
"It was a very sad day here at
City Hall," said the Mayor
Whitehurst's longtime secretary,
Conrad, Bob Lynn, Sally
Griffith, and Marsha Johns were
known at Rentz's as the
"Every Thursday the four of
us would meet at the Rentz's at
noon for the best dumplings in
the whole wide world,' remarked
Conrad. "Gosh, Thursday was
such a special day, I'm not sure
what were going to do now."
The Dumpling Gang was so
disappointed when they found
out that the restaurant was dos-
ing, they purchased a decorative
brick that says "The Dumpling
Gang" to commemorate their
good times at Thursday lunch.
The last meal was served two
of the original and most faithful
customers, Susan Hollingshead
and her son Brad.
"We started going there when
Brad was in the fifth grade," rem-
inisced Hollingshead. "When
Linda passed away it was so sad.
I missed her laugh; she would
talk to every- one that came
through the door."
When Hollingshead finished
her last meal Friday all of the
employees came up to her table a

Tomorrow we enter into
the New Year, 2006.
Many are depressed
right now. Some people have
expected to get certain things
this past Christmas, and they
did not materialize. This is
why so many people get
money or gift cards for
Christmas and for their birth-
days each year. I am caught up
into giving this way because,
well, it's easier on me than
shopping, and people can
always get what they want that
way. Somehow, though, the
old-fashioned idea of unwrap-
ping a surprise on Christmas
Day still appeals to me, even
though I risk getting a skinny,
purple, dotted tie. I don't care.
It's fun having a surprise.
Enter 2006 a-Pondering
Many people today
just want what they
want, even if there
a are no mysteries
under the tree. I do
draw the line at just
exchanging money, though.
People who usually give
money give the same amount
each year. Sometimes, when
money is exchanged, I imagine
the one who always gets a big-
ger check saying, "I was going
to send you X amount, and
you were going to send me XX
amount. Why don't you just
subtract X from XX and send
the difference to me, and I will
save a stamp and a check by
not sending you X." That is so
ridiculous, that I am adamant
that one of the parties gives
some kind of a gift, so that it
doesn't degenerate into
exchanging money. Money,
though, keeps people from get-
ting something they don't
want, and that would cause
Sometimes depression is
there, even when we get all
that we want. A mound of
packages have been opened,
and the tree looks so lonely
with no packages under it, and
the air has that Christmas look,
and we are stuffed after the
Christmas meal. We look at
children outside; three or four
hours after they have
unwrapped their presents, and
they are playing in the dirt
with sticks! They are not
depressed. They are just out of
the excitement zone with their
new presents. Some adults
never got into an excitement
zone and are mentally and
mournfully singing, late
Christmas afternoon, the
depressing old Peggy Lee song,
"Is that all there is? Is that all
there is? If that's all there is
my friend, then let's go danc-
ing..." We have been educated
by many teachers to expect
much from Christmas, and
when we don't get it, or some-
times when we do, we are
depressed, strangely, in the
days after Christmas.
Some are depressed, they
tell us, from "light depriva-
tion," and are urged to get
under fluorescent lights to
bring their spirits up during
the winter. Some are
depressed from the absence
departed visitors. Some are
depressed from the presence of
should-be-gone visitors. Some
are depressed from the cold or
the short days. Some are
depressed from the credit card
charges that will now have to
be paid. The promises of plas-
tic turn into the burden of bills.
Some are depressed from tak-
ing down all the bright decora-
tions. (I once worked in a
year-round Christmas store.
People bought Christmas orna-
ments all year long and dis-
played some of them continu-
ally to keep up the Christmas
mood.) I have a feeling that
many more are depressed, and
they just don't know why. I ,
would suggest a possible
Christmas, to them, was not
a spiritual event. It was a pure-
ly selfish observance. Christ
was not emphasized. A birth-
day present for Him was light-
ly, or never, considered. It was
convenient to miss church dur-
ing the holidays, especially
when traveling. The great bibli-
cal truths of Christmas were not
considered: the love of God,
the gift of God, the virgin birth,
the incarnation of Christ.
I can tell you one who might
have been depressed after the
first Christmas--Mary, the one
who gave birth to the Christ
Child. She would not have
been depressed for the above-
mentioned reasons, but could
have been bothered by her poor
birthing accommodations, her
need to travel by foot and don-
key, the duties of motherhood,
or the whispers of those who
were not in on the miracle of
the virgin birth, but instead she
."pondered." Mary kept all
these (first Christmas) things
and pondered them in her
heart" (Luke 2:19). This would
help any lady with post-partum
depression. We read of no such
downer period with Mary. She
meditated over the Word of
God and the work of God. She
pondered. I hope you and I
will "ponder." Mary counted
her great blessings. The next
time we are tempted to be
depressed after Christmas, we
need to do some "pondering."
May we think deeply about the
great truths of God into, and
way into, and even throughout,
the New Year, 2006. A Happy
and Pondering New Year to

Ken Nielsen/The News Bulletin
Wrapped in blankets and toting portable oxygen units, residents at the Silvercrest Manor, 105 Ruby
Lane got a chilly Christmas morning surprise when the fire alarm went off Christmas morning. All of
the residents had to be evacuated while firefighters located the problem. A short in the heating unit
caused the alarms to go off. No one was hurt, and after about 20 minutes in the parking lot, the res-
idents were allowed to return to their warm rooms.

Bronson announces price-gouging included in Top-10 list of complaints
TALLAHASSEE -- Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Charles H. Bronson has
announced that price-gouging
complaints have once again
made it into the list of top 10
complaints for calendar year
2005. Last year was the first
year price-gouging even made
it to the top 10 list following an
unprecedented hurricane sea-
son. The No. 1 complaint in
2005 involved violations of
Florida's No Sales Law. Price-
gouging ranked third.
The price-gouging law is
activated when the governor
declares a state of emergency,
which occurred several times
in 2005. There were 3,464 writ-
ten price-gouging complaints
since January 1, 2005.
"It is dear that word has
gotten out to consumers that
they have a place to turn when
a person or business is trying
to unfairly make a huge profit
during an emergency situa-
tion," Bronson said. "This
Department investigates and
aggressively takes action on
price-gouging complaints, and
I hope this information sends a
message to those who would
contemplate such egregious
actions when citizens are try-
ing to protect themselves in a
hurricane or other emergency."
Written complaints about
violations of the state's Do Not
Call List led the top 10 list with
4,120 complaints. Bronson
took legal action against 33
companies in 2005 for Do Not
Call violations and obtained
more than $102,000 in fines
Okaloosa Tax-Aide / TCE program needs volunteers
The Okaloosa Tax-
Aide/TCE Program is again
recruiting volunteers to serve
as tax counselors to Senior
Citizens for the 2005/2006 tax
season. Volunteers are needed
in the Crestview area.
Tax-Aide is a community
service of AARP working in
cooperation with the Internal
Revenue Service. It provides
free income tax help to older
taxpayers in preparing their
Persons volunteering to
serve as counselors should
have a sincere interest in serv-
ing senior adults and have a
good knowledge of tax matters
plus a working knowledge of
computers. They should also
be willing to participate in a
one week IRS-developed train-
ing course and agree to devote
at least four hours a week to
providing tax counseling.
Scheduling is flexible.
The training course for vol-
unteers will be held in January.
The local Tax-Aide program
will offer assistance to senior
residents at Bob Sikes Library
from February 1 to April 15.

ing out more about Tax-Aide

High school basketball: Playground Shootout
Back in action
two games, but
regain top scorer
News Bulletin Sports Editor
FORT WALTON BEACH Tera
Gainer's best Christmas present came
three days late.
Gainer got to make her return to the
Crestview girls basketball lineup
Wednesday during the Bulldogs' first
game at the Choctawhatchee Playground
Gainer, who missed a month with an
ankle injury, said she went to bed as excit-
ed as a kid on Christmas Eve the night
before her return.
"Coach (Jay Sanders) told me we were
going to try it out and see how things go,"
said Gainer, who led
North Okaloosa players
in scoring with 17.0
points per game before
her injury. "I was so
excited I couldn't sleep."
(Tenn.) played the role
of Scrooge in
GAINER Crestview's holiday
tale. The Yellow Jackets
spoiled Gainer's return by handing the
Dawgs a 49-44 defeat.
Crestview (7-9) went on, to finish sev-
enth in the eight-team tournament. The
Dawgs fell 51-39 against Class 3A No. 6
Trinity Catholic on Thursday. CHS con-
cluded the tournament with a 33-29 vic-
tory against South Pike (Miss.) on Friday
"More than anything, we want to get
experience playing tough6teams," Sanders
said. "A loteof these.teamsarelike ourdiAi
trict opponents. ... big and physical and
have three or four girls who are over six
feet tall. Obviously we want to win, but
we are looking to get some experience
that will carry us through district play."
Gainer's return highlighted
Crestview's time at the tournament. She
scored two points against Grundy
County, two against Trinity Catholic and
one against South Pike. Sanders hopes to
have Gainer at full strength by the time
the Dawgs play a District 1-5A game
against Tate on Jan. 6.
"She's still limping around and I
would say she's at about 75 percent,"
Sanders said. "Spe doesn't have that
quick first step she's famous for.
"But it gave us an emotional lift just to
put her out on the floor. You heard the
girls get excited on the bench. To get her
out there, even at 75 percent, seems to get
the other girls up."
Ken Nielsen The News Bullel-n
Crestview sophomore Liz Graham goes in for a game-tying layup late in the
Bulldogs' game Wednesday against Grundy County (Tenn.)
Gainer tore three ligaments in her left
ankle during the fourth quarter of
Crestview's game Nov. 29 against
She spent the next two weeks on
crutches, unable to put any weight on the
injured foot. She spent practices with her
foot in an ice bucket.
"I never had to sit and watch and not
be able to help my team out," she said. "I
was very miserable for that month. I was
just sitting on the bench at practice, try-
ing to keep us positive and motivated.
That was all I could do."
Gainer saw other CHS players elevate
their performances in her absence.
Junior point guard Jamia Akins took
over the role of go-to scorer.
Akins produced 36 points during the
Playground Shootout, including 15
against South Pike and 14 against
Grundy County (Tenn.) 49, CHS 44
Trinity Catholic 51, CHS 39
CHS 33, South Pike (Miss.) 29
Sophomore shooting guard Liz
Graham returned from an ankle injury of
her own to provide a perimeter shooting
Graham scored 14 points against
Grundy County and 10 against South Pike.
"All I can say is I'm proud of the girls
for stepping up," Gainer said. "It shows
they didn't give up. It makes us juniors
feel like we don't have to do it all. We
have some younger girls who can step up
and get the job done."
Sanders called Gainer's name in the
opening minute of the fourth quarter
against Grundy County. She headed to
the scorers' table to check in for the first
time in a month, accompanied by loud
cheers from her teammates.
Gainer's first moments, however, had
the kind of luck associated with her jer-
sey number No. 13.
Crestview received a technical foul
upon Gainer's entry because her name
did not appear in the official scorebook.
The Dawgs later missed four potential
go-ahead free throws after tying things
up at 44 with 2:38 left. Gainer missed
three of those freebies.
Crestview finished the Grundy
County game 1 of 14 from the line.
"Free throws, we did horribly," Gainer
said. "We know that. I know that. You
have to make free throws, especially in a
tight game." .
Free throw woes again doomed the
Dawgs in their loss against once-beaten
Trinity Catholic. Crestview made only
19 of 39 from the line in the 12-point loss.
Celtics guard Brittany Bowe, a Florida
Southern recruit, scored 24 points and
gave the Bulldogs fits all afternoon.
"One of the best guards in this tourna-
ment," Sanders said. "We couldn't seem
to stop her, and she would make the pass
when we double-teamed her."
Nakia Bradshaw led Crestview with
12 points against Trinity Catholic.
The Bulldogs got off to a sleepy start
in their 9 a.m. seventh-place game Friday
against South Pike. Crestview led 2-1
after one period.
The Bulldogs took control of the game
when Graham scored six straight points
to put CHS ahead 22-17 in the third quar-
ter. The Eagles had a chance to tie the
game late, but Akins made a game-seal-
ing steal and free throw.
Up and down Dawgs take sixth place
CHS wins two
of four games
News Bulletin Sports Editor
FORT WALTON BEACH -
Crestview's Jekyll and Hyde
boys basketball season contin-
ued during the Choctawhatchee
The Dawgs went 2-2 to earn
sixth place in the 16-team tourna-
ment. Crestview's four games
offered a microcosm of its season.
The good Crestview team
showed up in a 63-44 victory
Thursday against Johnson
The not-so-good Dawgs suf-
fered a 55-48 defeat Wednesday
against Starr's Mill (Ga.).
Both the good and the bad
sides had their moments during a
60-46 win against Wildwood on
Tuesday in the tourney opener,
and during an 88-54 loss against
Class 5A No. 9 Fort Myers on

Dawgs on Wednesday in the
loss against Starr's Mill. The
Panthers enjoyed a 38-28 advan-
tage on the boards including
a 23-16 margin in the second
half, when CHS had a bigger

part," senior forward Kelley
Parris said. "We do need to be
able to box people out, and
we're having trouble doing it."
The Panthers also made all
seven of their field goal attempts
in the final period and zoomed
out to a 51-42 lead..Crestview had
a chance to get within two with
less than a minute remaining, but
missed a pair of key free throws.
The Dawgs would get no closer.
Parris led Crestview with 21
points and 11 rebounds. Peters
added 13 points 10 in the sec-
ond quarter despite a debili-

from the injury Thursday

scored 24 points, and Parris
added 22 as the Dawgs secured
the win with a late surge.

basketball team's game Wednesday against Starr's Mill (Ga.).
The Green Wave piled up 55
points in the second half.
"And I bet only a few of them
were outside shots," Humphrey
said. "The reason we were in the
'game in the first half is we were
not allowing them to get to the
basket, and we were rebounding.
In the second half, we let them
get to the basket every time."
Parris scored 14 points and
Peters 11 against Fort Myers.
Peters was Crestview's represen-
tative on the all-tourney team.
