More than 20 Okaloosa County schools participated in Children in Crisis’ Change for Children campaign, raising more than $17,000 to benefit the abused, neglected and abandoned children of our community. Ruckel Middle School students—pictured here with CIC’s Ken Hair and Superintendent of Okaloosa County School District Alexis Tibbetts—rose to the challenge, collecting over $3,000 for the cause.

Artist Terry Johnston beautifies the exterior of our favorite bookstore, Niceville’s Read It Again. Stop by and check out their awesome selection of rare books and (yes!) records.
