The correct number is 800-203-3099. Dorcas re tax a burden Dorcas is a small community outside of Crestview with many acres of woodlands with no homes on them. On Sept. 15th I attended a public hearing held by the Dorcas Volunteer Fire District. I am appalled, scared and amazed that ve unelected people can sit at a table and increase my property tax. I dont believe this to be legal but like all the other tax-paying citizens who were there, I felt helpless to stop it! We asked questions but got no answers. They just sat there and looked at us. We voiced opposition that fell on deaf ears. The Dorcas re board said the meeting was for input only and that they would not be answering our questions! Excuse me! I thought this was America remember no taxation without representation! The re district stated that they were short on funds and needed the extra money. However, they had their own attorney present if the re district is short on funds, who is paying the attorney and for what, if this is all legal and aboveboard. The secretary and bookkeeper for the re district is the wife of the re chief. No help there! Is that a conict of interest or what! The American taxpayer is already over-burdened and the property owners in Okaloosa County carry a heavy load. Stop and think about what we are losing in America! It is our freedom and our rights. They are being trampled upon and taken away from us every day. I am opposed to the lifting of the re increase cap and the increase in the re tax by the Dorcas Volunteer Fire District. I am very unsure about the legal right to do this! Susan Hollingshead Crestview LETTER TO THE EDITOR

We can help you safeguard your clients privacy so you can focus on other business priorities by providing: Receive a FREE Security Assessment They (Southern Pharma ceutical) will immediately have an internship program, Keller said. Theres a great synergy with whats going on right across the street (from city hall). I really want to thank you for helping Crestview to solicit an other company in here, Baugh said. The city is really morphing itself. Not only is it becoming a college city, but it will be a phar maceutical manufacturing city as well. Okaloosa County Commis sioner Wayne Harris, who at tended the meeting, said phar maceutical companies tend to cluster to take advantage of shared resources. If the city is successful in attracting South ern Pharmaceutical, others most likely will follow. If we get that pill factory, theyre going to be knocking down our doors to bring others, Harris said. I can tell you this is not a slight undertaking, Barker said. We would not even have a seat at the table without the support of the citizens of Crestview. This is a partnership that expands be yond the borders of Crestview. In another matter, Adminis trative Services Director Mike Wing presented a request by FAMU on behalf of its contrac tor, Peter Brown Construction of Clearwater, to waive inspection fees involved in the remodeling of the Alatex Building. There are four fees that are part of the permitting process, Wing said, including a $1,094 ra don inspection fee, which is the only permit for which a waiver would cost the city money be cause the fee must be submitted to the state. The others are local fees for services the city wouldnt have to undertake. Brad Will, vice president of operations for Peter Brown Construction, assured the coun cil that his rm would not gain nancially from the fee waiver, which would only benet the uni versity. They (FAMU) assume the role of inspection on their own projects, Wing said. Its a pe culiarity of Florida. Most of the schools, including the Okaloosa County School District, do just what FAMU is doing. They have their own inspectors. The total amount the city would waive, including contrac tor registration, building permit and permit processing fees, is about $36,500. Council Mem ber Tim Grandberrys motion to waive all but the state radon inspection fee passed unani mously. Were very excited for the community, and the product thats going to come out of that is going to be very beautiful, and its going to preserve the historic aspect of it, Will said. PILL from page A1 large pizza purchased at Flor ida and Alabama locations in October, Hungry Howies will make a donation to NBCF. Up to an additional $1 will also be donated to NBCF when customers purchase pink rib bon magnets at Hungry How ies locations and share their stories of hope and inspira tion about their experience with breast cancer on Hungry Howies Facebook page. Janelle Hail, founder/CEO of the National Breast Can cer Foundation and a 30-year breast cancer survivor, said, The rst time I hugged a woman who was provided a mammogram through NB CFs help was like holding love in my arms. Today, I live my life with hope for my future and want to share those expe riences. Hungry Howies Love, Hope & Pizza campaign begins to day and runs throughout the month of October. As a community, we can help to heal the lives of pa tients and their loved ones, Hungry Howies founder Jim Hearn said. We can face the challenge of breast cancer and make a difference together. ABOUT HUNGRY HOWIES Founded in 1973, Hungry Howies is one of the nations largest pizza franchises and originator of the Flavored Crust Pizza.

The chamber audience sat patiently while the council conducted the citys business. Then, during the public com ment period, several speakers approached the podium to ex press support for the council. At their head was Ken Nielsen, who operates the WCVCTV website. Im humbled to come be fore you today with regrets for the way that I did the story, Nielsen said. I learned a valu able lesson. Im not here be cause Im fearful of the nan cial repercussions that may come Im here because of the black eye I gave the city and the council. Nielsen was followed by Okaloosa County Commis sioner Wayne Harris, who said he considered Baugh his best friend here, adding, These are my friends, folks. You hurt my friends, you hurt me. Harris praised the accom plishments of the council since it was seated in April, including reducing the millage rate, bal ancing the budget and holding department heads and their employees accountable for their actions. Im proud to call you my friends, Harris said. Sabu Williams, a deacon at his church and president of the regional NAACP chapter, cau tioned the council members, I did want to challenge you not to get your heads big with all the accolades weve heard tonight. Crestview is on the rise, and I think the people who are here tonight are here to tell you we want to work with you. Council members then of fered words of support to each other. Were at harmony when were trying to do the work of the city, Helt said. I respect and I admire every person here. I would stand to the integrity of every person here. Im even more prouder to see the citizens here tonight to support the council mem bers, Council Member Tim Grandberry said. Nobody has an agenda. We want to support Crestview. Baugh also thanked the au dience for their support. The ve of us, including our mayor and deputy clerk, would never intentionally do anything to sully the name of the city of Crestview and bring dishonor to you, Baugh said. Special to the News Bulletin FORT W AL TON BEACH Okaloosa County Tax Collector Ben An derson released a Report to the Citizens of Okaloosa County on Wednesday revealing the results of a recent forensic audit. Ander son, appointed tax collector in August to fulll the remainder of Chris Hughes term, said in a press conference, Its time to close the door on what happened under the previous administra tion and move forward with busi ness at hand. Anderson retained the CPA rm Carr, Riggs and Ingram to conduct the forensic audit in an effort to delineate between the last 18 years under Hughes and the present administration. An derson said, The only way to start fresh is to make sure the past is behind us, and the audit was a logical starting point. Glenn Gillyard, a certied pub lic accountant and certied fraud examiner with a background in law enforcement, headed the team from Carr, Riggs and In gram. A forensic audit is a more fo cused approach to potential prob lem areas, Gillyard said. Our intent in this investigation was to evaluate what happened in the past and determine if future expenditures can be more cost effective and result in a more ef cient operation. The forensic audit covered a span of ve years, from Oct. 1, 2006, to June 30, 2011. It covered employee compensation, bonus es and benets, travel, internal controls and did a comparative analysis with other tax collector ofces in the region. Though nothing illegal was found, the pay structure was overly excessive and generous, Anderson said of the report. Recommendations made from the report included restructuring upper management, reevaluat ing travel and education prac tices, and purchasing documen tation. Anderson noted that after almost two months in ofce, he has implemented a spherical ap proach to management rather than the previous hierarchal ap proach. In the process, he has eliminated the positions of chief deputy tax collector and the as sistant tax collector. Through the administrative reorganization and resignations, he has reduced upper-level administrative sala ries almost 31 percent. Anderson said he will apply better business practices. I want to build on the good that was found and move forward with positive improvements to enhance and grow our services to the citizens of Okaloosa Coun ty, including the military commu nity, he said. Anderson offered information on some other changes at the tax collectors ofce. An employee once referred to as a clerk will now be called a customer service agent, and what was once the Customer Service Center will now be called Customer Service and Process ing Center, Anderson said.

Local A4 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, October 1, 2011 By Brian Hughes brianh@crestviewbulletin.com The brouhaha over the bungled award of a con tract to operate Crest views ballpark concession stands continues. The city received an attorneys letter requesting more than $22,000 in compensa tion for the woman whose winning bid was tossed out when the city council voted to rescind the award and reopen bidding. At the recommenda tion of Council President Charles Baugh Jr., the council voted at its Aug. 8 meeting to award the contract to Dawn Sledge, although the committee formed to select a con cessionaire had recom mended the partnership of Bonda Todd and Gia DeMario. Todd and DeMario re tained the services of at torney Bert Moore, led a formal bid protest, and threatened legal action against the city, claiming the bidding criteria were vague. This led city attor ney Ben Holley to recom mend the council scrap the bids, rescind the award, revise the bidding criteria to be more specic and re open the bidding process. The council unanimous ly voted Sept. 14 to follow Holleys advice. Sledge said, under the impression that she would be awarded the contract, she invested money to prepare the con cession stands, purchase equipment and obtain the licenses required for the city to issue her a contract, she told the council. Just because you se lect somebody as the best bid doesnt mean they have the contract, and there was never a contract entered into, Holley said. I spent $1,300 of my money to get the licensing based on my proposal be cause I thought I won it, Sledge said. However, attorney Ash ley Rogers letter to the city enumerated far more than that amount, demanding the city reimburse Sledge $22,064.08, including $222 for mileage, $2,460 for expenses incurred on and after Aug. 8, and $4,846 for labor. Mrs. Sledge val ues her time, the letter explained when request ing compensation for 121 hours at $40 per hour. Im not sure where shes putting forward those hours, Holley said. Thats a pretty good sal ary for fixing up a conces sion stand. Id like to get that salary. Rogers also requested $8,786 compensation for missed opportunities, including abandoning ef forts to be a substitute school teacher and missed chances to provide food vendor services at two re gional festivals. Attorneys fees of $750 were also in cluded in the request. Sledge also claimed $726 in license fees, al though when Baugh rec ommended her services, he said Sledge already has licenses and experi ence, citing them as an advantage over selecting the Todd-DeMario part nership. Among expenses sub mitted for reimbursement were $260 in automotive repairs and $167 in auto supplies for a 2003 Chev rolet Trailblazer that, Rog ers letter stated, Sledge otherwise would not have repaired. An annotation on the itemization said Sledge needed a reliable vehicle and big enough for equipment. On Sledges behalf, Rogers also requested $5,000 because Mrs. Sledge endured extensive, undue burden during the process, including neg ative publicity in local media. Sledges request was to be discussed at Monday evenings city council meeting, however, Holley said, Rogers instead filed a bid protest and asked that their appearance be removed from the agen da. I dont know what shes going to get out of it, Hol ley said, speculating that Sledges bid pro test was filed to assure all redress procedures had been followed before Sledge took the city to court. I hope we get it all re solved, Holley said. 2039780 $ 29 00 Must present coupon.

Our Hands. www.stpaulniceville.com By Brian Hughes brianh@crestviewbulletin.com The Crestview City Council held public hearings on two of three ordinances striking rearms from city disorderly conduct and re works regulations. Without discussion, both ordinances passed unanimously. A third ordinance, which covers weapons discharges, was re moved from the agenda due to errors in its revision. The two ordinances we are reading tonight are mandated by Florida stat ute, Council Member Phil lip Berezo explained to the audience. Resident Larry Roberts requested leniency after re ceiving a water bill for nearly 650,000 gallons of water, or 16,600 gallons per day, for his family-owned trailer park. The parks average usage is about 214,300 gallons per month, or 7,100 gallons a day, he said. I would have noticed this kind of leakage, Roberts said. Id like a little mercy. Ive already paid the bill; I couldnt afford the late fees on this one. Roberts said he had spo ken with city ofcials, includ ing Public Works Director Wayne Steele, and believes there was a problem with his water meter. Steele said his department installed a new meter, but more than 35,000 gallons of water were already registered between Sept. 21 and Sept. 25. He felt from experience that there could be a broken under ground pipe. You cant just hide 10,000 gallons a day, Roberts said. It was like a tanker came out and lled up and they hauled it off. The council asked Public Works staff to assist Roberts in identifying the cause for the excess usage. In other matters, Mayor David Cadle reported he has been receiving repeat ed messages from music licensing rm BMI, which complained the city is not in compliance with the mu sic on our phones, and were not covered by all the music in our Christmas parade or in the library when they have a program, Cadle said. The $309 licensing fee BMI demanded covers about 70 percent of all recorded music, Cadle explained. Administrative Services Director Mike Wing said the city was licensed by another music licensing company and thought it covered all music the city shares with citizens. Program director Cal Zethmayr of local radio sta tions WAAZ/WJSB said his station pays 8 percent of its prot to BMI. Theyre getting a bar gain, Zethmayr said of the city. In mock seriousness, Cadle also stated to ap plause, There are a lot of very strong issues facing this city. I judge them by the many phone calls I get in my ofce and Im ready to make a statement tonight: Trickor-treating will be Oct. 31. In other business, the council: Heard a recommenda tion from Council Member Robyn Helt to update the citys Land Development Code to bring properties with non-conforming uses into compliance. Wing agreed to prepare a revised policy. Agreed to allocate $21,400 more to insulate the ceiling of Twin Hills Park gym when, after repeated questioning by Steeles staff, the low bidder realized a mistake had been made in their bid. Their revised price of $36,400 to repair the ceiling was still the low est. The request passed unanimously. Work will start Wednes day, Steele reported, nish in two weeks and then an other company will begin resurfacing the oors. Unanimously agreed to buy a $495 color ad in the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce 2012 community prole guide. This is another way to show the city of Crestview is on the map and doing good things, Council Member Tim Grandberry said. Guns, water and music: Council addresses diverse issues BRIAN HUGHES | Crestview News Bulletin City department heads, right, and council members, at dais, prepare for the start of the Sept. 26 Crestview City Council meeting.

Bill (Willie Lou) Holland BILL HOLLAND Obituary I have been fairly gullible throughout life. One episode really sticks out for me. Many years ago when I was searching for my rst church position out of seminary, my wife and I drove to a church just outside Rochester, N.Y. It was way up on Lake Ontario. The directions from the senior pastor said we would know we were close when we saw two water towers right next to each other. Then he put in parentheses, One for cold water, the other for hot water. I believed him although I thought one for hot water was strange. I gured the town was so far north that they needed a hot water tank, not for homes, but to keep the city water pipes from freezing in the wintertime. When I asked the senior pastor about it, he looked at me like Id just fallen off the turnip truck. Perhaps I had. Had I checked out that little niggling of doubt about the hot water tank, I would have saved myself a lot of embarrassment. I could have asked for proof, but instead, I took him at his word, not realizing he was making a joke. Adults want proof. But children are completely different. Children dont have to see something in order to believe it exists. Look at the way children readily react toward Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy just to name a few. There is no proof for them, but that doesnt matter. Their lives are greatly inuenced by their belief in them. When children are young, they also feel the same way about God and Jesus. They dont need proof. They simply accept the teaching of their existence and love. Children learn to believe and love back. So when do children stop believing in things unseen? Most often when they are teased by others. Or when expectations are not met. Or when questions are asked but answers are not satisfying. Or when prayers are not answered according to their desire. As we grow we tend to want to have things go our own way. We tend to want our ideas to be followed, our desires to be fullled. And when that doesnt happen, we pout and do it our own way sometimes without care for the consequences. And where does this tend to lead us? Truthfully, it leads us to running after things that are actually of very little worth or importance in the grand scheme of life. What really counts in life? Seeking the things of God rather than the things of this earth. C.S. Lewis put it this way, Look for yourself and you will nd in the long run hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will nd him, and with him everything else thrown in. Jesus put it this way, Seek rst for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. What will be given? Food, clothing and shelter the basic needs of life. But more importantly, Gods love, grace, and forgiveness, a sense of true satisfaction and contentment, a sense of calm knowing God will take care of you. There will be no need to worry knowing God will provide. God provides more than we can. Back in the days of the country store, a little boy used to go with his mother when she went shopping. The storekeeper always said, Take a handful of candy, son. But the boy never would. The storekeeper would reach into the box and give him a handful. One day his mother asked, Why is it, when he asks you to take a handful, you never do? The boy replied, Because his hands are bigger than mine. Not so dumb, huh? The little boy knew hed get more from the mans hands than from his own. We receive so much more from Gods hands than our own. God provides much more than we can provide for ourselves. His hands are a whole lot larger than ours. Relying on God is an act of trust and obedience. When we trust him, he will give us more than we can provide for ourselves. Just as he watches over the birds of the air and provides for them, just as he watches over the owers in the eld and provides for them, he will do for us. If humanity would stop fooling itself into believing we know better than God what we need, we would all be so much better off. God provides for our needs. We dont always get what we want, but we get what we need. The Rev.

Local A6 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, October 1, 2011 6513158 The Associated Press Alex Iwashyna didnt real ize how many of her neighbors in Richmond, Va., had backup generators until her own family bought one in the dark days after Hurricane Irene. As she endured the drone of a combustion engine in her backyard, she noticed the same steady noise from neigh bors homes. I mean we joke about pre paring for the apocalypse and stuff, Iwashyna said. Weve had an earthquake, a hurricane and a wildre in Virginia ... it would have never occurred to me to get one until we lost power for that amount of time. Homeowners around the na tion have endured a nasty run of power-disrupting storms, and sales of portable power genera tors have been brisk, industry of cials say. The big box stores such as Lowes and Walmart did not release sales information, but according to one manufacturer, Briggs & Stratton Corp., Irene led to a spike in sales. While things have slowed since then, We are continuing to see an uptick in de mand, said Briggs spokeswoman Laura Timm. In some places, the drone of generators is becoming as com mon during blackouts as lawn mowers are on summer Satur days. I think weve gotten into a pattern of more severe weather events. Whether its snow or ice or rain or wind, youre just losing power, said Kris Kiser, who heads the Outdoor Power Equipment In stitute, a trade group. And I think people are more comfortable now with, Hey, my neighbor has this generator and maybe I should try it next year. In this year alone, a snowstorm crippled Washington, D.C.; Joplin, Mo., was devastated by a tornado; record-high water levels created havoc along the lower Mississippi from Missouri to Louisiana; and Texas was ravaged by wildres. The insurance company Munich Re counted 98 natural disasters in the United States in the rst six months of 2011, about double the average of the 1990s. A lot of this extreme weather snaps power lines. Irene knocked out power to more than 9 million customers along the East Coast. A big snowstorm in the bustling Northeast corridor can easily cut power to more than 100,000. The recent wildres interrupted pow er to several thousand. And its not just storms that cause black outs; investigators are looking into whether a utility worker doing a minor repair job led to roughly 6 million customers in Arizona, Cal ifornia and Mexico losing power last month. As the U.S. electrical grid ages, the number of power outages af fecting more than 50,000 custom ers more than doubled between 2005 and 2009 when compared to the previous ve-year period, ac cording to Massoud Amin, direc tor of the Technological Leader ship Institute at the University of Minnesota. Enter the generator. In Trumbull, Conn., Debi Nor ton was without power for a day and waiting in line at Home Depot to buy ice when she overheard a town ofcial say that Irene had hit her neighborhood so hard that electricity would not be restored until that weekend. I said, Four more days with out power? And I saw the genera tors lined up on pallets, and I said, You know what? I can do this. Norton spent around $600 on one of the portable generators. Thats a typical price, though por table generators can run to more than $1,000 depending on power and features. Larger standby generators that run on propane or natural gas can cost much more. A generator with enough juice can handle a refrigerator, a fur nace, lights and more. Norton not only kept her food from spoiling but plugged in her computer to play DVDs for her son. Iwashyna used some of her power to run her trash compactor. Though unsuitable for apart ment dwellers because of the exhaust, todays compact units are more family-friendly than the rumbling machines of yesteryear. Some start with a key rather than a pull cord. Honda claims its quiet er generators are no louder than normal speech. Of course, many generators are louder than that. The noise is mind-numbing ... in the whole neighborhood, you can hear them, Norton said. It seemed like every third house pretty much had a generator, or got one. In one extreme case of genera tor stress during the Southwests recent blackout, a 45-year-old Orange County, Calif., man was arrested after the noise from a neighbors generator allegedly prompted him to beat the neigh bor with a ashlight. Other neighbors complain of the smell of burning fuel. In Richmond, Iwashyna, a mother of two who blogs at la teenough.com, worried about whether the noise would bug her neighbors. That was one of my Face book and Twitter questions to my friends: What is the etiquette? Iwashyna said. Were in the city but we have a yard and were pret ty close to our neighbors. She and her husband turned off their generator at night. Nor ton turned her machine off peri odically so she and her neighbors could get a break. Norton also per formed one other act of gracious generator etiquette when she al lowed her neighbor to run a cord to his refrigerator. Despite the noise, Norton is happy with the generator. It gave her peace of mind caring for her son and she was able to enjoy hot coffee. Some climate scientists say that extreme storms are increas ingly likely, partly because of global warming. And forecasters say the Pacic Ocean climate phe nomenon La Nina, which contrib uted to extreme weather around the globe during the rst half of this year, has re-emerged and is expected to gradually strengthen and continue into winter. Im sure Im going to use it again, Norton said of her genera tor. Its not a matter of if. Its a matter of when. Extreme weather makes portable generators a hit Realtors and builders Paint their heart out ECAR announces new CEO The Emerald Coast Association of Realtors is proud to announce that a new chief executive ofcer has been selected.

www.crestviewbulletin.com Section By Randy Dickson randyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER Brianna Ross and Mary Kate Myrick proved to be double trouble at the net as they led the Freeport volleyball team to a four-set win over Baker on Monday. Ross was a force with 11 kills, and Myrick added 10 kills and 10 assists as the Bulldogs avenged a season-opening loss to the Gators by the scores of 25-22, 14-25, 25-21 and 25-18. When all was said and done, Baker coach Tomikko Parks said it just wasnt her teams night. We didnt play our game, she said. We were stagnant in spots where we shouldnt have been stagnant. We didnt come out ready to play. Im not taking anything away from Freeport because they played well, but we didnt come in the gym ready to play. The Bulldogs (12-2) didnt waste much time in jumping to an early lead in the rst set. With the score at 4-3, Freeport ran off six unanswered points to go up 10-3. The Bulldogs still seemed on their way to a quick rst-set win after Ross nailed a kill to make the score 19-10. Freeport was on the brink of taking the set with the score 24-13 when Alex Roy took over in serve for the Gators (7-3) and they tried to claw their way back into the set. Baker scored eight unanswered points but was unable to overcome the large decit. Baker evened the match at one set apiece as the Gators took the second set. Bakers Jordan Linzy kept the Bulldogs off balance with her serve, and Katie Wickery and Lau rie Steele were able to provide an answer at the net for Ross and Myrick. The Gators took the lead in the set at 6-5 and never trailed the rest of the set. The rest of the night belonged to the Bulldogs. Ross and Myrick continued to lead the way, and they got plenty of help from their friends. Prophecy Spaid had seven kills to go along with 11 assists and four aces. Charity Head added ve aces and a pair of kills. Wickery led the Baker offense with 12 kills and 11 assists. Taylor Morgan had ve kills to go along with 13 assists. Steele had six kills and Roy came up with nine digs. Freeport coach Tina Knight said she was pleased with the progress the Bulldogs have made since the season-opening loss to Baker. It was our rst game (the sea son opener), and we were trying out some new things, she said. We have a couple of freshmen on our varsity team, and I think we nally got it in place like we want it. We came over here and ex pected a good game. I gured we would see them somewhere down the road in the playoffs, and thats why I scheduled them this year. Baker beat Jay in four sets Tuesday night by scores of 25-19, 24-26, 25-22 and 25-21. By Randy Dickson randyd@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW The Niceville vol leyball team gave coach Jill Ben son the gift any coach would want Tuesday night: a win. The Eagles made quick work of District 2-6A foe Crestview as they soared to straight-set victory by scores of 25-14, 25-19, 25-10. Niceville jumped to a quick 5-2 lead in the rst set and was never seriously challenged by the Bull dogs (1-6, 0-5). Kimmy Sara and Monica John son sparked the quick start by the Eagles as Sara did her work in serve and Johnson exed her muscle at the net with an early kill that set the tone for things to come. Throughout the set, the Ea gles took turns pounding the net. When it wasnt Johnson it was Kayla Carr, Shelby Russell or Er ika Tuttle. Niceville quickly doubled the lead from 5-2 to 10-4 and never was threatened in the set. An upset-minded Bulldog team came out fast in the second set taking a 10-0 lead. With Sara Hamilton in serve, Crestview seemed to be hitting on all cylinders. Haleigh Hollinhead and Jas mine Middleton showed they could hit with Nicevilles big boppers as Crestview got off to the quick start. But Niceville wouldnt be de terred as Russell led the charge back with strong play at the net. The Eagles closed the gap from 10-0 to 11-2 and then 12-7 as they took the momentum for the set and the match away from the Bull dogs. We came out pretty strong, and then we kind of let it go in that second game a little bit, Benson said. We have those times when nothing goes right. But it was an 11-point decit and we came back, and it was not that big of a prob lem. Then our goal in the third game was to keep them under 10, and we did that. Having come back to pull off the second-set win, the Eagles wasted no time putting the third set out of reach as they went up 11-1 and cruised in for the win. Crestview coach Kathy Comb est said the Bulldogs were their own enemies much of the match. All I know is we practice every day to do things right, she said. When we run our offense, we score. We cant just send free balls over to a good team like Niceville. Weve got to put some offense down so their defense has to work. We are blocking better, and we get our hands on a lot of balls. But I dont think we run to the ball enough. Weve got dead feet, and I dont understand that. Niceville won the JV match. Crestview was at Mosley on Thursday.

A PUBLICATION OF By Paula Kelley paulak@crestviewbulletin.com One of every eight wom en will be diagnosed with cancer in her lifetime. And although American Cancer Society statistics show that breast cancer is about 100 times less common among men than women, their lifetime risk for the disease is still one in 1,000. Dave Parisot, Okaloosa County commissioner for District 2, is a male cancer survivor. He told his story for the rst time recently to the Republican Women of Okaloosa County.. I tell my story because I think there is not a lot of awareness about breast cancer among men, he said. My diagnosis came out of the blue. In February 2010, Pari sot underwent a laparo scopic bariatric gastric sleeve surgery to remove part of the stomach. The tube-shaped stomach that is left is sealed closed with staples and is an approach to weight loss and mainte nance. In Parisots case, weight loss might have saved his life. After I had lost 75 pounds, I found a lump in my breast, he said. It was July of 2010, and I have an older sister and niece who are both breast can cer survivors, so on the re mote chance that it could be something, I went to the doctor. The commissioners doctor at Eglin Air Force Base Hospital did a mam mogram, then an ultra sound and eventually diag nosed a 2-centimeter lump as Stage II breast cancer. In August 2010, Parisot underwent a biopsy, and Eglin physicians told him they were 85 percent sure he would be ne after the lumps removal. They scheduled a left breast mastectomy, and doctors checked his senti nel lymph node as well. It is usually the rst lymph node or group of nodes reached by metastasizing cancer cells from a prima ry tumor. Cancer was not there; it was caught early and completely surgically removed. Parisots gastric sleeve surgeon assisted with his Commissioner survives rare male breast cancer I think because it is a rare disease in men, we dont talk about it. It is certainly nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about. Dave Parisot Okaloosa County commissioner and breast cancer survivor Early detection is key in breast cancer By Paula Kelley paulak@crestviewbulletin.com Almost 19 years have passed since her breast cancer diagnosis, but Laurel Hills Karen Hendren still believes women should be faithful in self-exams. Her dili gence in the exams paid off early. In January 1992, Hendren said she felt something. I called Dr. Sandra Hanson at the Breast Clinic in Fort Walton and went in for a mammogram, she said. The mammogram came back inconclusive in a diagnosis. So I had an ultrasound so that they could see more. Sure enough, it came back inconclusive as well. At that point Dr. Hanson, who is also a surgeon, did a biopsy in her ofce, and I remember she was telling the nurse, Looking good so far, and then she changed to, Get this to the hospital lab right away. Within two weeks of the biopsy, Hendren underwent a modied radical mastectomy to her left breast and was sent home with a suction drain, sutures and a list of exercises she was to do. I remember not understand ing the directions of one of the arm lifts, and when she asked me to do one of each of the exercises on my return visit, she grabbed that left arm and up it went over my head. And no, I had not been doing that correctly at all, and man did it hurt. I remember my brain shut ting down when she said the words breast cancer in the biopsy re sults, then a whirlwind of feelings start. Next I was mad. I even re member thinking, I am not wasting my vacation on breast cancer. Although she has since retired, at the time of her diagnosis, Hen dren was a maintenance-training technician in civil service and in the Reserves at Duke Field. With a Stage I cancer, Hendren did not have to undergo chemo therapy or radiation treatments This is our 11th year with Relay, and we always have about 60 people participating, and sometimes two teams instead of one.

Early Detection Saves Lives! mastectomy, as it was the weight loss that enabled the lump to be found. All my tests came back good; the surrounding tis sue checks showed that the surgery removed it all, he said. It was almost 60 days before the pathology report came back, and that was a long wait, but it did come back good, and I did not have to undergo chemo therapy or radiation treat ments. Although Parisot had blood relatives with breast cancer, his sisters insur ance would not pay for the BRACAnalysis to show if others in her family were at risk for a BRCA gene muta tion. The test allows fam ily members to know if the gene mutation is heredi tary, therefore putting them at a greater risk of having the disease and passing it to their children. Parisot was warned that a positive result for the test might, in the future, cause an insur ance company to not write a policy for him. Parisots BRACAnalysis showed that he did not carry the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene. These two major genes mutate and can be passed from parent to child, in creasing the risk of develop ing cancer in their children. BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are located on chromo some 17 and chromosome 13 respectively. There is a 90 percent chance of devel oping breast cancer for a woman who has these mu tated genes. Men carrying BRCA1 have no risk of developing breast cancer, but those carrying BRCA2 genes have high risk. Mutations in these genes can be passed on to children by either par ent. A man with a mutation is just as likely to pass this gene to his children as a woman with a mutation. Parisot and his wife, Chong, now have his and her mammograms yearly. Chong had a breast can cer scare four years ago and now has cystic activity monitored. Men need to be aware of breast cancer possibilities, Parisot said. They need to know the symptoms, have suspicious activity checked by a physician and if it is there, get rid of it as soon as possible. I think because it is a rare disease in men, we dont talk about it, he said. It is certainly nothing to be ashamed of or embar rassed about. I proudly wear my pink breast can cer awareness ribbon pin on the lapel of my jacket, and I even sport a pink tie sometimes. after the surgery. I walked every day at lunch time, still do several times a week, and I was very selective about who knew about the can cer, she said. My walking buddy knew, and one day we started talking about forming a team for Relay for Life from Duke Field. This is our 11th year with Re lay, and we always have about 60 people participating, and sometimes two teams instead of one. I remember the rst Survivor Walk after my diagnosis. I felt guilty for partici pating because my experience was such a minor one compared to what some people undergo, she said. Yet it was very emo tional I had to keep distancing myself from the others in the walk. Since then, Hendren and her husband, Larry, have served on the board of direc tors for the local Relay for Life, and they are still active with the annual event. She also has walked the past two years in the Emerald Coast Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Destin. The American Cancer Societys pro jection is that by the end of 2011, there will have been 113,000 new diagnoses of breast cancer in Florida. Throughout the nation, 1,596,670 new cases are expected this calendar year. In their most recent release of veyear survival rates for breast cancer diag nosed between 1999 and 2006, the survival rate is 68 percent, up from 50 percent in 1975-1977. Survival statistics rates vary with breast cancer types and severity. ACS says early detection is another con tributor to the statistical changes that have increased survival numbers.

This graphic from the American Cancer Society shows the average size for suspicious masses found by women in regular self-exams versus screening. By Paula Kelley paulak@crestviewbulletin.com The American Cancer Societys Florida Division is launching the Put On Your Pink Bra campaign for the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. The approach is a bold request, but organizers are excited about the lighthearted impact the request could have. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of the Emerald Coast will hold their annual event at the Village Baptist Church, 101 Matthew Blvd., Destin, on Saturday Oct. 29. Registration begins at 8 a.m., with the walk at 9 a.m. We want to raise awareness and raise money to help in the ght against breast cancer, said Shelly Nightengale, with American Cancer Societys Fort Walton Beach ofce. The Florida division wanted to differentiate ourselves from all of the pink ribbon campaigns out there. The ACS chose this tagline as there have been many walkers in the past who come to the event in their pink bra on the outside of a white tee. Breast cancer patients and survivors know the color pink signies the ght against cancer. Asking those who have survived or are surviving the ght to put on a pink bra on the outside of a white T-shirt brings the theme to a personal level. Friends, family, and supporters are encouraged to follow suit. Making Strides is not a race; it is a celebration of survivorship, an occasion to express hope, and a shared goal to end the disease, organizers said. There is no registration fee and people of all ages and tness levels are welcome to participate and help raise funds. Participants are encouraged to register as a walker, as a team or as a donor for the event. Walkers are encouraged by the ACS to raise at least $100 each and registration can be completed in advance at www.putonyourpinkbra. com or the morning of the event. In 2010, more than 100,000 walkers across Florida joined the American Cancer Society in the ght against breast cancer, raising more than $6 million through Making Strides events. Cancer survivors are invited to a special tea to honor them prior to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. The tea is planned for Oct. 2, from 2-4 p.m., at Magnolia Grill in Fort Walton Beach. Reservations are required. For more information on the event, call Shelly Nightengale at 244-3813 ext. 3556.

Buy a Breast Cancer Awareness Bracelet for only $ 5 00 and a portion of our proceeds will go to our team! By Paula Kelley paulak@crestviewbulletin.com Breast cancer is diagnosed in stages. It is usually expressed as a number on a scale of 0 through IV, with stage 0 describing noninvasive cancers that remain within their original location and stage IV describing invasive cancers that have spread outside the breast to other parts of the body. The pathology report from your doctor includes information about the stage of the breast cancer, whether it is limited to one area in the breast, or if it has spread to healthy tissues inside the breast or even to other parts of the body. Your doctor will begin to determine this during surgery to remove the cancer and look at one or more of the underarm lymph nodes, which is where breast cancer tends to travel rst. He or she also might order additional blood tests or imaging tests. Cancer stage is based on four characteristics: size, if it is invasive or noninvasive, if it is in the lymph nodes, and if it has traveled and spread to parts of the body other than the breast. Stage 0 is sometimes referred to as pre-cancer. It is noninvasive breast cancers, such as ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). In stage 0, there is no evidence of cancer cells or noncancerous abnormal cells breaking out of the part of the breast in which they started, or getting through to, or invading, neighboring normal tissue. Stage I describes invasive breast cancer where cancer cells are breaking through to, or invading, surrounding breast tissue where a tumor measures up to 2 centimeters and there are no lymph nodes involved. These cancer cells have just started to invade the tissue outside the lining of the duct or lobule; however, the invading cancer cells cant measure more than 1 millimeter. Stage IIA describes invasive breast cancer where no tumor can be found in the breast, but cancer cells are found in the lymph nodes under the arm (axillary), or the tumor measures 2 centimeters or smaller and has spread to the axillary lymph nodes, or the tumor is larger than 2 centimeters but not larger than 5 centimeters and has not spread to the axillary lymph nodes. Stage IIB describes invasive breast cancer in which the tumor is larger than 2 centimeters but not larger than 5 centimeters and has spread to the axillary lymph nodes, or the tumor is larger than 5 centimeters but has not spread to the axillary lymph nodes. Stage IIIA describes invasive breast cancer where no tumor is found, but cancer is found in axillary lymph nodes, which are clumped together or sticking to other structures, or cancer might have spread to lymph nodes near the breastbone, or the cancer is any size and has spread to axillary lymph nodes, which are clumped together or sticking to other structures. Stage IIIB describes invasive breast cancer of any size that has spread to the chest wall and/or skin of the breast and might have spread to axillary lymph nodes, which are clumped together or sticking to other structures, or cancer might have spread to lymph nodes near the breastbone. Inammatory breast cancer is considered at least stage IIIB. Typical symptoms include reddening of a large portion of the breast skin, a warm and often swollen breast and cells that have spread to the lymph nodes, might be found in the skin. Stage IIIC describes invasive breast cancer where there might be no sign of cancer in the breast or, if there is a tumor, it might be any size and might have spread to the chest wall and/or the skin of the breast. This stage has spread to near or distant lymph nodes and often, the Thoracic duct. Stage IV describes invasive breast cancer that has spread beyond the breast and nearby lymph nodes to other organs of the body, such as the lungs, distant lymph nodes, skin, bones, liver, or brain. Doctors often include advanced and metastatic to describe stage IV breast cancer, which can be a rst diagnosis or can be a recurrence of a previous breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body.

It divides and multiplies at an uncon trolled rate. A small clump of cancer cells are often too tiny to be felt, so the earliest stages of breast cancer usually have no symptoms. Even monthly selfexams can leave some cancers undiagnosed for an extended period of time. Time undetected is an en emy in the ght against breast cancer. A mammogram can de tect cancer before you can feel a lump. Some benign breast conditions exist and women leave self-detected lumps unattended due to them. Self-exams are a great way to be familiar with your breasts texture, cyclical changes, size and skin conditions, but never leave doubt unchecked. Comedian Patsy Clair mont jokingly says that a mammogram is where they take your cup and try their best to turn it into a saucer. Fear of the compression often keeps a woman from having a rst baseline mammo gram. The lms from this mammogram are kept in a womans medical le. All images from future mammography tests are compared to the baseline mammogram. The American Can cer Society suggests that women age 40 should have a baseline mammogram. These rst images give the interpreting physician a standard of the nature and composition of the individuals healthy breast, if baseline results are nor mal. Should an unusual structure be detected during a screening mam mogram and the same structure appears on the womans baseline mam mogram from 15 years earlier in the same shape, size, location the interpreting physician can deduce that this structure is a normal component of that womans breast. Digital mammography is suggested for women with dense breast tissue, and may be used to get a good measurement of a mass. An ultrasound can be used to make a mea surement of a breast tu mor, but can be slightly less accurate than a digital mammogram, as it has been found to underesti mate tumor size.

I tell them Healthy Woman is a free communi ty education resource that I believe empowers women to be healthier mind, body and spirit. But Linares admits that lately she wants to say so much more as a recent lifesaving story has made her believe in her work now more than ever. I want to say it is a pro gram that will add more years to your life, more time for you with your fam ily, and it is so much more than a really fun girl event even though it is that too.

I will tell you the story and then you tell me about our Healthy Woman program. Linares began, During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Oct. 21, 2010, Dr. Vin cente Mendez presented a seminar for the Healthy Woman participants. He spoke about the disease and the importance of selfexams for early detection. A 44-year-old Crest view woman, who is a sin gle mom, was there and although she would rather not have her name used, the timeline of her story is amazing. Eight days after the seminar, she did a selfexam as Dr. Mendez had spoken about. She found a lump in a breast. Nov. 4, 14 days later, she visited with a physician and had a mammogram. Nov. 8, she had an appointment with Dr. Mendez. Nov. 11 (just 21 days after the Healthy Woman seminar) she had her rst ultrasound-guided biopsy, and the ndings were inva sive ductal carcinoma.

Mendez is an inter nal medicine physician in Crestview and loves the success story. She was in the early stages of breast cancer and because she listened to the program, she knew the importance of a base-line mammogram and through it came her cancer diagno sis, Mendez said.
