Crestview News Bulletin ..... .
CRESTVIEW Issac and Cynthia
Thomas are blessed with a big family,
bursting with lots of love.
But their 'three-bedroom north
Crestview home, alas, is way too small
to accommodate them.
In particular, infant Ariel, less than
six months old, has Trisomy 18, a
very serious, life-threatening disease.
She has recently come home from
Pensacola's Sacred Heart Hospital to
join her four siblings.
"We need more room because our
daughter was diagnosed with a rare
syndrome," explained Issac Thomas,
a state probation officer. "She requires
a lot of attention, such as an oxygen

machine and certain other medical"
equipment." .
With financial resources tight, the
Thomas family decided on an unusual
course of action to alleviate their
cramped home: They applied forahome
makeover. And not just any makeover,
but the kind of all-inclusive, wall-to-
wall, floor-to-ceiling renovation seen
on the Sunday night ABC-TV show
Extreme Makeover Home Edition.'
"We finished the (application) tape
and sent it off today," Mr. Thomas said
Thursday morning, confessing, "We
messed it up the first time."
His wife Cynthia, who is on
maternity leave from her job as a
corrections officer, had adopted two
girls, ages 8 and 6, and had a son, 9,
prior to their marriage. Together they

have a 17-month-old daughter and
little Ariel.
The Okaloosa County Board of
Commissioners recently passed a
proclamation supporting the family, a
document the Thomases sent to ABC
with their application.
"I just wish them all the luck," said
Sherry Campbell, commissioner from
District 1. "The Thomas family has
some challenges ahead and we wanted
to help," she added.
But even if Extreme Makeover Home
Edition lead designer Ty Pennington
doesn't show up on the Thomas's
doorstep with his team in tow, the
family's faith still keeps them strong.
"We're a little crowded in here, but
we know God will take care of us,"
said Issac Thomas.

community support that they have received
toward opening a Foster Families of America

Fostering foster

Brian Hughes
Crestview News Bulletin
CRESTVIEW- We've all heard of foster kids and
foster parents. People with even half a heart find it
hard not to be thankful for the latter, hopeful for the
former, and prayerful for both.
But what most people don't know is that foster
parents receive very little public assistance when a
foster child is placed with them.
Frequently, the child arrives with little more
than the clothes on his or her back. It can take up to
six weeks for state financial assistance to reach the
family. Meanwhile, they must draw on their own
resources to support not only their own children,
but also their foster children. ... ....-
In Crestview, a handful of business leaders have
stepped up to the plate to help them.
Foster Families of America Inc., a local initiative,
is preparing a store and office at 113 N. Main St.
Use of the building has been donated by owner
Jim Baker of Baker & Lindsy.
With materials donated by Crestview Wholesale,
a small squad of volunteers has begun converting
the generous interior into a combination retail and
office space. Other businesses, including Anglin
Home Builders, Expert Air and McDonald Power
& Light are doing technical work, such as HVAC
and electrical, and organizing permits.
Founded by Wanda and Dalton Jones, owners
of Total Business Solutions and their friend and
colleague Cyndi Gilmore and her husband, Gary,

Delay encountered in

Chamber's new home plans

Brian Hughes
Crestview News Bulletin

pected questions from a
Crestview City Council
member have, for the time
being at least, put the
brakes on the Chamber of
Commerce's drive for a
new home.
When the Chamber
presented their planning-
documents at last Monday's
council meeting, they
thought they were close to
ground breaking, according
to Chamber President Mike
"We came to the City
Council prepared to
move forward," Roy said.
However, council member
Linda Parker "had some
questions, which kind of
surprised us," he said.
* Roy said the Chamber

had been working closely
with Crestview Public
Services director "Junior"
Cox to assure their
preparations were in order.
"We thought we'd done
everything asked of us and
it was ready to go," Roy
The Chamber's new
home is tentatively planned
for land donated to the
city, adjacent to the new
Crestview Community
Center on Commerce Drive
opposite the public library.
Parker's. concern, she
said, is that plans for
the new facility should
progress carefully to avoid
any conflicts with land use
"When it was being
discussed the other night,"
Parker said, city attorney
Ben Holly "raised a number
of issues that have to be

Far from wanting to
delay progress, Parker's
intention is to assure that
the issue isn't raised at a
future date to the detriment
of the city. "We want to get
it right at the start," Parker
"I asked some questions
because, from the
information I had at that
point, it didn't appear that
we were ready to prepare a
final document," she said.
"We're getting there,, but
we're not there yet."
Roy said the Chamber is
working to address Parker's
concerns, but because of
the strong support the
organization received from
the city, they were just
surprised by her hesitance
at the last council meeting.
"But we'll be alright," he

They also know

"The state's concern is
getting placement" of the
foster child, said Crestview
Mayor David Cadle. "This
group's concern is pro-
viding spiritual counseling
and things that they need,
like clothing."
The Foster Families of
America facility on Main
Street will offer foster
families free support and

commodities, such as basic
toiletries and clothing that
foster kids need. Future
plans call for a food
pantry that will provide
foster families with non-
perishables, as well.
By opening their store to
the general public, they will
also ,aise additional funds
to support foster families.
FFA hopes to have the
building open by the end of
and funding-for their
endeavor, Foster Families
of America is holding a
barbecue dinner on Sept.
21. A hefty plate of great
eats from award-winning
Possum Ridge BBQ costs
$8, and all funds go directly
to the program.
"Also, for you
business and private
practice owners, we have
two golf tournaments
scheduled," said Cyndi
Gilmore. "We are seeking
sponsors and we are in need
of raffle items, as well as
door prizes." Sponsorships

for the tournament are
$100. "That's cheap for golf
tourneys!" she observed.
"I'm very impressed with
them," Mayor Cadle said of
FFA founders. "They have
great, great plans. We'd like
to get some more people
involved with them."

Foster Families of
America welcomes
volunteers to assist
in construction, and
donors who can
provide materials,
expertise and
supplies for the store
and office. Cash
donations are also
welcome. For more
information about
the organization, the
barbecue fund-raiser
and how you can
help, call

HARRIS continued from 1

"I'm proud to say...that
I just filed for the county
commissioner position for
District 1," he announced.
The position is currently
:held by Sherry Campbell,
who earlier this year
announced her candidacy
'for the state legislature.
Harris believes his
background offers a good
!perspective from which
'to approach the office.
Following 27 years in the
Air Force, Harris became

a successful businessman
and joined the Chamber.
"I'd -like to bring a
business perspective to the
county commissioner's
position," Harris said. "I
think we can do a great job
for our voters... I see a lot
of things that, if you were
in the business world, you
wouldn't do. They say,
'Well, a county's different'
or 'a city's different,' but I
find that hard to believe. If
you run it like a business,

you can get it done. If I can
get everybody else on board
with that, we can be very
successful in this county."
Harris believes the
people of the county are a
great, untapped resource.
"We've got some great,
brilliant people in Okaloosa
County," he said. "We go
out and pay someone to do
all these studies, but we've
got some people right here
in our town-right here
in Crestview, right here in

Niceville, in Fort Walton
Beach-that can come ,up
with good ideas.
"We need to tap that
mind trust that's out there.
One of the things I want
to do... is do some real
brainstorming with people
who live in this county."
Suzanne Harris stands
firmly behind her husband's
bid for elected office. In fact,
she said, "I am the one who
said he needed to go for it...
He knows how to get things

Before filing, Harris took
the precaution of clearing
his intentions with the
Chamber of Commerce.
"The board has agreed to
me running," he said. No
conflict of interest was
encountered in a review
of, the Chamber's by-laws,
and no perceived conflict of
interest was identified.
"Everything that
I've learned here (in the
Chamber) I can put to

work for the people of the
county," Harris said.
"I think the county
commissioners can learn
from the people in this
county. I don't think
political people in this
world do enough listening
to the people who vote 'em
Harris is ready for his
bid's first challenge. "Right
now the biggest thing I've
got to do is raise some
funds," he said.

PULPIT A message to our yous
Michael Green Jr.

I beseech you therefore,
brethren, by the mercies of
God, that ye present your
bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
acceptable unto God, which
is your reasonable service.
And be not conformed to this
world: but be ye transformed
by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what is
that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God. -
Romans 12:1-2
This week marks
the time that many of
you have started your
educational program for
another year. Whether
you are in public school,
private school, college or
are homeschooled, you
face daily challenges. Some
are facing pressure from
peers that want you to do
something that you know
is immoral. Articulate
instructors may be trying
to cast shadows of doubt
upon everything that you
have been taught from the
Bible. Perhaps you have a
horrible home life and do
not really know what is
right or wrong. There are
numerous people that feel
like a ship being tossed
about by the waves of
life. Wherever you find
yourself, know that God is

in control and He is able to
bless us through any trials
that we encounter.
In the above passage,
the Apostle Paul instructs
us to live for one that is
greater than anything or
anyone in this world. We
are commanded to present
our bodies as a sacrifice to
God. This should be our
goal as Christians, both
young and old.
We are oftentimes
willing to sacrifice our
bodies for the most trifling
things in this world. Have
you sacrificed your body
in an immoral manner? Is
the majority of your time
devoted to the vain things
of this world? If this is the
case, we should repent and
present our bodies a living
sacrifice to God. Proverbs
14:12 states that, "There
is a way which seemeth
right unto a man, but the
end thereof are the ways
of death." We might think
it right to compromise our
values/morality in order
to gain the attention of
others, but this is wrong.
Misery and heartache
follow a compromise of
God's commandment.
Presenting our bodies
as a living sacrifice is our

reasonable responsibility
as Christians. There are
many things that you can
find to occupy your time
as a youngster. In high
school and college people
will encourage you to be
involved with numerous
organizations and causes.
Well meaning parents
and educators will try to
occupy your time with
sports and extracurricular
activities. While many
of these things are hot
inherently sinful and some
can even be beneficial, our
primary concern ought to
be our service to God. Jesus
teaches us to, "Seek ye first
the kingdom of God, and
his righteousness and all
these things shall be added
unto you. (Matthew 6:33)."
When we first serve the
Lord, he will bless us with
those things we need in
our lives. All of the other
activities that we engage in
are vanity at the best.
In Ecclesiastes 2:11,
King Solomon wrote,
"Then I looked on all the
works that my hands had
wrought, and on the labour
that I had laboured to do:
and, behold, all was vanity
and vexation of spirit, and
there was no profit under

the sun." As you read this
book in the Bible you will
notice that Solomon did
a little bit of everything!
He said that all of this was
void of any true substance.
The wise king concludes
in Ecclesiastes 12:13,
"Fear God, and keep his
commandments: for this is
the whole duty of man." It
is my prayer that you will
not wait until you are old
to come to this conclusion.
Serve the Lord in your
youth! Refuse to conform
to the standards of this
world. Study the Bible and
stand up for Godly values.
Seek a place to worship
God in spirit and in truth.
Our Heavenly Father will
never lead us astray!

"When you're up against
trouble, meet it squarely
face to face... You may fail,
but fall still fighting; don't
give up, whatever you do;
eyes front, head high to
the finish, see it through!"
For the sonof a Crestview
woman, the excerpts
from a popular Edgar
Guest poem, focusing
on handling adversity,
took on a very personal'
meaning. Army ROTC
Cadet Daniel A. Dubor,
son of Miriam Johnson
of Crestview, spent more
than a month testing his
limits physically, mentally
and emotionally during
the Army ROTC Advanced
Leadership Camp.
Dubor was one of more
than 5,000 ROTC cadets
from throughout the
nation who attended the
leadership course on the
road to becoming a second

lieutenant. Cadets were
forced to use a combination
of wits, common sense,
intelligence and basic
instinct to overcome a
series of challenges.
"I have been learning
a lot about myself and
what it takes to become a
good leader in the Army.
The training here has
pushed me beyond what
I thought I was capable
of ever accomplishing in
my life," said Dubor, who
graduated in 2004 from
Crestview Senior High
School and received an
associate's degree in 2006
from Okaloosa-Walton
College in Niceville.
The road to the coveted
gold bar was much more
than simply passing a
written test. Much of their
time was spent in the field
learning land navigation,
traversing obstacle courses,
responding to chemical
attacks and learning the
basics of marksmanship.
The cadets were put in
a variety of leadership

positions and situations
that simulated combat
There was even a
challenging water course
where cadets were required
to swim 15 meters with
their equipment, climb a
17-foot ladder and, while
blindfolded, step off of a
three-meter platform while
holding their M-16 rifle.
"This course has been
challenging, only in the
sense that this is a new and
interesting environment.
The people, activities and
events have all been great
fun," he said.
For Dubor and his fellow
cadets, the leadership
course was a defining
moment that helped them
face their fears, develop
strong friendships and
put them on the path to
becoming strong, effective
"I now know what it
takes to lead and become
the best possible officer
I can in the Army," said
With the foundation set
to help these cadets launch
their time in the Army,
whether it is part time
in the National Guard or
Reserve or as an active duty
officer, each cadet leaves
here with a particular goal
in mind.
"I plan to branch into
the armor field and serve

for at least 10 years. Then
I plan to pursue some
type of business venture
afterwards," Dubor said.

Army ROTC Cadet
Daniel A. Dubor recently
spent more than a month
at Fort Lewis, Wash.
where his physical,
mental and emotional
limits were challenged
as he and 5,000 other
cadets completed the
rigors of ROTC Advanced
Leadership Camp.
