Crestview woman pays with pennies to battle bill blues

Published: Wednesday, February 5, 2014 at 12:34 PM.

Tricare helps, but with doctors as close as Crestview and as far away as Pensacola, Birmingham, Ala., and North Carolina, travel expenses, on top of everything else, are concerns.

Today's her deadline to pay the power bill in an acceptable payment method, and she'll do that, she said. But if it's not one thing, it's another.

"Soon as I think I'm getting over something, something else comes up" with her health, she said.

"Bills — that's where my money goes."
