50 www.crestviewbulletin.com By Paula Kelley email@example.com Abby Rike lost 100 pounds in six months as a season eight participant in the NBC series The Biggest Loser. Going into its 11th season this fall, the reality TV show awards contestants for weekly weight-loss challenges. On Thursday, Aug. 25, Rike will be the featured speaker at the eighth annual Healthy Woman, a womens health and wellness program of North Okaloosa Medical Center. I love the Healthy Wom an program. Rike said. I have such a belief in it, and I am very excited about spea k ing to Crestviews Healthy Woman group. Rike describes herself as always being overweight. I was chubby grow ing up, weighed 200 when I graduated from high school, and I still know what an ev eryday struggle weight is, Rike said. But I said it on the show and I still believe that 247 (her heaviest weight) surprised me, but it did not dene me. Neither does losing 100 pounds. When you look at a number on the scale, it is a personal indictment because we attach shame with weight. When there is no shame involved, then you can deal with the numbers, and that must be the most liberating thing in the world.

But moms and dads who want their children to enjoy carnival rides and face-painting booths without encountering people openly drinking alcohol might also nd satisfaction in the proposal. It would isolate alcohol sales and consumers from the general festi val population. What we had proposed was to use the smaller pavilion as the actual beer tent, OSTF organizer Cindy OLoughlin said. That was part of what we looked at not having people wandering through the vendor area carrying a beer, so families could enjoy the face-paint ing. OLoughlin said she and the OSTF staff had met with a com pany that would erect a temporary fence around the smaller picnic pavilion in Old Spanish Trail Park. It is possible to separate the Biggest Loser contestant to visit Crestview Weve got to have a charter that makes sense for the citizensBy Brian Hughes email@example.com Concerned that the city councils discussions on Crestviews new char ter have not been focused, at the July 25 council meeting, Councilwoman Robyn Helt sought from her col leagues a consensus to direct discus sion at the next charter review work shop, which will take place Monday at 5 p.m. at City Hall. Weve directed staff at previous meetings in the past to prepare us a draft charter. Through our discus sion, we directed staff to come back with a charter in a different format, Helt said. We dont get anywhere or make any headway when were di recting staff to do one thing one week and another thing the next week. Helt, who served on the citizen charter review committee, admitted she has pondered different charter congurations, including retaining an elected city clerk while appointing a city administrator or making both po sitions council appointments. If we retain an elected city clerk, many of the duties would be less ened, Helt said. Councilman Ben Iannucci said he favors appointing a city clerk, but several citizens have spoken to him in favor of electing the clerk. Having an appointed clerk, constituents told him, would entail the council taking the power away from the people. After reection, he said he agrees with Helt. I would push forward to having a city administrator and keeping an elected city clerk but streamlining the position, he said. Councilman Phillip Berezo said he, too, heard from citizens who favored retaining an elected city clerk who would not be subject to the inuence of the council. Council President Charles Baugh Jr. observed that the charter review committee, after a year of delibera tion, had recommended retaining an elected clerk. City Attorney Ben Holley reminded council members MAXIME Q U EMENER | News Bulletin Acknowledging he was in the minority, resident Willard Wilson implored the city council to keep events on city property family oriented and not allow alcohol sales.

Box 399 Crestview, FL 32536. 1420467 Troops We Support Our alcohol area from the rest of the area, OLoughlin assured. Councilwoman Robyn Helt said she agreed it was doable, but her concern was making sure Crestviews revised alcohol policy included the means to implement it and not having this blanket free-for-all. From the more than 50 alcohol beverage licenses issued by the state, city Administrative Services Director Mike Wing introduced a list of four he said were applicable to public events in Crestview: Special civic center: for consump tion on the premises only, issued to the city, with the city purchas ing and selling the alcohol. I dont think we want to get into selling alcohol, Helt quickly said. Performing arts center: a facility consisting of 200 or more seats owned and operated by a non prot organization to develop per forming, visual and ne arts. At present, Crestview does not have such a facility. One-, twoor three-day permit: for a nonprot civic organization to sell alcoholic beverages on-prem ises for not more than three days, with no more than three permits issued to the group per year. Caterer: for any caterer licensed by the state Division of Hotels and Restaurants, deriving at least 51 percent of its gross revenue from the sale of food and nonalcoholic beverages, for consumption on the premises of any catered event at which the licensee is also pro viding food. Private events that are not open to the public, such as wed ding receptions, company ban quets, etc., would not require li censes, Wing said. Despite public interest in the councils ongoing discussions about alcohol sales in the com munity, most of the few citizens at Mondays workshop were pro ponents of relaxing restrictions on alcohol sales at events on city property. Only one resident spoke against it. I know I am in the minority tonight, Willard Wilson said. Im asking you to keep the city familyoriented. Wilson cited the popularity of alcohol-free Sundays at the Nice ville Mullet Festival and remi nisced about events at Old Span ish Trail Park when you didnt have alcohol, and they were suc cessful. Its awful today that the word has gone out that you cant have a good event without selling alco holic beverages, Wilson said. Times have changed now, responded Larry Wooley, presi dent of the OSTF. People who are looking to go to a musical festival are kind of expecting it (alcohol). How do you think that the Mullet Festival pays for that en tertainment on Sunday? added Angela Ferdon-Cotton, another festival organizer. We need the beer and the vendors to get the people to come in. This property belongs to the citizens of Crestview, Wilson said. Lets let the people vote on it. In related business, a contro versial ordinance governing the times of sale for alcoholic bever ages received a rst reading at the councils regular July 25 meeting. A workshop on the ordinance will be held before the councils Aug. 22 meeting, where a second read ing of the ordinance and a vote to approve or disapprove it will be held. ALCOHOL from page A1MAXIME QUEMENER | News Bulletin Councilwoman Robyn Helt, right, calls for a consensus of the council before the next city charter review meeting as Mayor David Cadle, left, and City Attorney Ben Holley listen. CHARTER from page A1 that the second draft they recently considered calls for an appointed city clerk. There are a lot of changes that need to be made, Mayor David Ca dle said. But this char ter review pretty much removes all the duties and responsibilities of the mayor. I have heard some concerns from citizens about the consolidation of power in the hands of the council. I would like it (the mayors role) dened very carefully in the char ter. People are concerned about an administrator who does not answer to the voters. Helt said a city admin istrator would be a pro fessional manager of the citys day-to-day opera tions. A city administrator would have some over sight and discretion of the city budget as a whole, she said. We need a professional to oversee that whole ball of wax to make sure every part of the city is kicking on all cylinders. What will be the may ors duties? Cadle asked. In the charter review, it has not been made very clear to me; we need to be very explicit what the duties are. Helt and Iannucci has tened to placate Cadle, assuring him that the mayor will remain an im portant part of city gov ernment. The role of the mayor would change; however, I do not believe his role would be any less im portant, Helt said. He is engaged in all work of the city. There is still a duty and a function for the mayor. I want the mayor and the citizens to know that it does not belittle the position of the mayor. For the people con cerned that the council has too much power, the mayor would be there to keep score, she added. Helt recommended that at the Monday char ter review meeting the council focus on dening the roles of the mayor and city clerk. Weve got to have a charter that makes sense for the citizens of Crest view. Right now I would argue that it does not, Helt said. We need to be collectively on board as a council and an elected body. to grips with the fact that you are overweight is a huge step in the journey. Youre not hiding it; its not a secret. Rike found joy in her life, but her weight prob lem ballooned after a per sonal tragedy. In July 2003, Rick Rike married Abby and adopted her 3-year-old daughter, Macy. The family called themselves Team Rike. In 2006, Caleb Daniel Rike was born a blondhaired, blue-eyed 9-pound baby boy. On a Friday in October 2006, Rick and Macy left for work and school, respec tively. Abby, who was ght ing off a fever, spent the day with Caleb. After work, the decision was made for Abby to visit the emer gency room for treatment, while Rick took Macy, Ca leb and two nieces to an open gym. Abby called her hus bands cellphone from the emergency room but got no answer. After sev eral tries, she called to see what time he picked the nieces up and learned that he and the children never arrived. Knowing something was wrong, she left the hospital and drove the route they would have taken. Five miles past their home, she encountered a barrage of ashing lights and ofcers blocking the area. The accident was just out of sight, but an emer gency worker conrmed a white van was involved in a wreck. But my life is in that van, she remembered thinking. Abbys worst fears were conrmed. She learned that her family was in one of the two vehicles in the wreck, that both vehicles caught re and there were no survivors. Rick was 33. Macy was 5, and Caleb was 18 days old. Helium balloons con gratulating the family on Calebs birth were still oating in the foyer of the empty home when she ar rived that night. Abbys heart was broken. After the accident, Rike wanted to isolate herself, and she gained another 30 or 40 pounds on top of the post-baby weight. The health issue was so bad, my weight was weighing me down, and I thought if I got healthy, Id be better, she said. In 2007, at the age of 34, Abby auditioned for The Biggest Loser and was chosen for the show. Al though she did not win, she did win back control of her life. She has gone from a size 20 to a size 6. On the show, I lost the weight of my heart, she said, stopping for a mo ment. Poor food choices and a body beaten down by the happenings of my life brought me to a place where I was not healthy and opened the opportu nity for me to make life changes. You cant change the circumstances, but you can change your response, Rike said. I knew that it was possible to have a bet ter life because when you get healthy, the body, mind and spirit are balanced. Too many times in the past, I thought, When this happens, Ill be happy. For the rst time since the wreck, Im happy right where I am. I appreciate the journey. That doesnt mean that everything is wonderful or that life is easy. I still have to choose every day to continue on, and I still have bad days. My family is still gone, and it is still a struggle. The Biggest Loser did not wave a magic fairy wand and declare that I live happily ever after. This is a battle Ill ght forever, but its a battle I know how to win, Abby said in one of the last chapters of her book, Working it Out, re leased May 4. My emphasis, my goal in my appearances, is to give the audience a new hope, for them to walk out with hope and a better life, Rike said. Extreme diets are like a spring that you stretch out and let go. Real change is about just starting small and in your own way. Maybe you de cide that lunch or dinner ve days a week is going to be a spinach salad with grilled chicken or to walk for 10 minutes. You start off where you are and with what you can do, and the movement will grow. BIGGEST LOSER from page A1S PECIA L T O TH E N E W S B U LL E T IN Abby Rike is pictured at right before her appearance on the The Biggest Loser, and at left as she appears today. Rike has gone from a size 20 to a size 6, thanks in part to her appearance on the show. WANT TO GO? Tickets for the Aug. 25 Healthy Woman event are available at www.northokaloosa.com/ healthywoman.

Doors open at 6 p.m., and dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. The Biggest Loser did not wave a magic fairy wand and declare that I live happily ever after.

The amounts are subject to early payment discount as afforded by law. The tax collector will collect the assessments for platted lots. The District intends to directly collect the assessments for unplatted acreage, and will be sending out a bill in September 2011. For delinquent assessments that were initially directly billed by the District, the District may initiate a foreclosure action or may place the delinquent assessments on the next years county tax bill. Failure to pay the assessments will cause a tax certi cate to be issued against the property which may result in a loss of title. Failure to pay assessments directly collected by the district may result in a loss of title through foreclosure proceedings.

Anderson District Manager Unit of Measurement Single Family Acre Per Unit 2012 O&M Assessment $421.99 $820.25 2081489 Crestviews Brand New Rental Community By Brian Hughes firstname.lastname@example.org Crestview Fire Chief Joseph Traylor presented a proposed $4.1 million 2011-12 draft budget at a Wednesday evening work shop of the city council that calls for a $73,923, or 1.8 percent, increase over his 2010-11 budget. Traylors presentation is the second of weekly bud get workshops the council has held as it reviews each department heads request. Police Chief Brian Mitchell presented his proposed budget to the council last week. The nal two meetings, which will be public hear ings, will occur Sept. 14 and on Sept. 28. Per state law, members of the city council must approve a nal budget prior to the new scal year, which begins Oct. 1. Like Mitchells $5 mil lion proposed budget, which calls for a 6.3 percent increase, Traylors largest expense, after personnel services, is for fuel. The requested $60,000 alloca tion is up a third, or $15,000, from Traylors current bud get. The steepest reduction in the re department bud get is a $17,000 cut into the vehicle repair allocation, representing an almost 30 percent decrease. With a $3.7 million cost, Traylors personnel services budget request is up almost $85,000, or 2.3 percent, from the 201011 amount. The requested budget eliminates almost $5,000 in unemployment compensation and nearly $23,000 in group insurance. The largest jump is $8,381 for unscheduled overtime, an 18.6 percent increase. The citys retirement contributions to its re ghters would increase $21,000, or 5.1 percent, to $432,791, the third largest expense in the personnel budget after $2.2 million for salaries and $600,243 for group insurance. At Monday evenings regular city council meet ing, city Finance Director Patti Beebe proposed a reduced millage of 5.5966, down from the current 5.8466 mills that has been in effect for several years. Im recommending that the council set a mill age based on a quarter per cent less than it currently is, Beebe said. Our goal is to reduce. However, she cautioned, once a millage is set for purposes of budget dis cussions, it couldnt be in creased. Once we set this ten tative millage, we can continue to reduce but we cant go up, she said. Councilwoman Robyn Helt moved to accept the recommended millage with the understanding that the county has the right to go lower, however the motion failed 1-3, with Helt casting the only yes vote. Councilman Ben Ian nucci moved to keep the current millage but only as the basis for discussion with the intent to decrease it when the nal budget is established. That motion passed 3-1, with Helt voting nay. Though Crestview has the countys highest mill age rate, it also generates fewer property-tax dollars of the three largest munici palities and consequently must maintain a higher millage rate to nance pub lic services, city ofcials said. By Brian Hughes email@example.com The Crestview City Council opened a busy Monday evening meeting with discussion of an ordi nance mandating additional acreage for residents who wish to keep noncommercial horses in single-family resi dential areas of the city. Administrative Services Direc tor Mike Wing ex plained the original ordi nance, which mandated a minimum of two acres for a single-family home with a horse, needed revi sion. Wing indicated neigh bor complaints spurred examination of the ordi nance. It has proven over the years to be a not very good ordinance, Wing said. The intent is to diminish the ef fects of that horse on that acreage. Its just a matter of two acres is too small because of the im pact on properties next door. It could end up with putting a stall 50 feet from somebodys pool. If the problem is that the horse is too close to the fence, this doesnt solve the problem, Councilman Ben Iannucci said of the new ordinance. The new ordinance re quires a minimum of a veacre parcel with one acre dedicated to the dwelling, at least one acre dedicated for each horse, and any ac cessory buildings, such as stables, must be at least 100 feet from the property line and behind the house. Is the city going to go out and measure where the horse is at any particular point in time? Councilwom an Robyn Helt asked before moving to approve the ordi nance, which passed 3 to 1, with Iannucci voting no. Councilman Tim Grandber ry was absent. The council also cor rected a mistake made at its July 11 meeting in which it agreed to receive a pro posal from engineering rm CH2M Hill to drill a new wa ter well. In fact, Tetra Tech, another engineering rm, had been the top bidder, but through a misunderstand ing, did not have a repre sentative at that meeting. City attorney Ben Holley said Tetra Tech had to be al lowed to come back to meet with the council before it could negotiate with the second bidder. You cant move on to the second one until youve been unable to reach an agreement with the rst one, Holley explained. Tetra Tech Vice Presi dent Michael Bomar then presented his rms pro posal, including design, per mitting, construction and part-time observation of the well, for a fee of $179,038. The council voted 3-1 to ac cept Tetra Techs proposal, with Iannucci voting no. In other matters, the council: Unanimously approved providing out-of-city sewer service to a new business in the Twin Creek Cross ing shopping center master plan. Voted unanimously to negotiate purchase from its current owner a parcel of property at the corner of Arena and Antioch roads needed for road improve ment and city utility lines. Over the years the city had encroached on the property with roadway work. The owner offered to sell the land to the city for $8,000. Helt moved to approve negotiations with the prop erty owner, but on condition that the city obtain an ap praisal of the property, which measures approximately 1,000 feet by 50-to-60 feet. Police Chief Brian Mitchell reported the Crest view Police Department placed second in the state wide Click-It-or-Ticket seat belt use enforcement cam paign and third in the state for DUI enforcement, earn ing 22,000 points that can be applied to buy equipment. Received advice from Holley on the procedure for the council to select an in terim city clerk to serve out the balance of clerk Janice Youngs term. Young sub mitted her resignation last week, effective July 31. Any vacancy will be ap proved by a majority vote by the council, Holley advised. Theres no set process. Thats up to the council.

Local A6 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, July 30, 2011 By Paula Kelley firstname.lastname@example.org Some Crestview residents are taking part in one of the newest tness dance crazes sweeping the country Zumba. The Cheer Zone partners Kellie Coe Vest, Amy Bowles and Jackie Faulk began offering Zumba classes at their downtown business last week. Zumba is a Latin-inspired program that involves dance and aerobic elements. Music is chosen to follow cumbia, salsa, merengue, mango, amenco, cha-cha, reggaeton, soca, samba, belly dancing, tango and hip-hop. Calories typically burned during a class range from 500 to 1,000 and depend on weight, workout duration and workout intensity. Its an effective and efcient class, Vest said. But more than that its just fast fun. Bowles said feedback about the class has been positive. Weve heard nothing but excitement from moms who brought their kids in for classes because now Mom has a fun exercise outlet, Bowles said. There is no right way to do Zumba, instructor Alicia Tesch told an apprehensive-looking woman before the start of the class. You modify each step for your tness level, Tesch said. We burn calories and tone as we move, Tesch said over the lyrics as Michael Jacksons Smooth Criminal began over the speakers. Here we go with the warm up. Tesch watched the students progress in a wall of mirrors and shouted encouraging words, counting out the rst few dance steps with each repetition. Music by the Black Eyed Peas set the pace for the second set as Alicia changed the steps up, adding quicker and more exaggerated movements as the music progressed. Class members laughed as they tried to get the choreography just right. Wow, Im already feeling it, Vest said, sticking her tongue out. If you dont get the steps right away, just move with the music until you do, Tesch said. There is not a wrong way to work it. Alicia Tesch instructs the rst Zumba class at The Cheer Zone.

A8 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, July 30, 2011 Proverbs 6:16-19: These six things the LORD hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren. In 1987, John Braden had been a member of a church in the Nashville area for nearly ve years. He had served as a Sunday school teacher for more than three years when the position of superintendent became available. John was excited about Sunday school and felt that he would be an ideal successor to the position. He went to the pastor and shared his vision and desire to serve, but to his disappointment, the pastor and church board later chose someone else to serve in that position. John was very offended that he wasnt considered for the job but didnt say anything to the pastor about it. As the weeks wore on, John became increasingly negative and critical toward the church and the people. He began to nd fault with the new superintendent and the Sunday school program. He began attending services less and less. Albert Philips, another Sunday school teacher, began to notice something wrong with John. After church one Sunday, John and Albert went out to lunch together. Is everything OK with you? Albert asked. Ive noticed that youve been absent a lot lately, and I get the feeling that something is wrong. Yeah, you might say that, John said sarcastically. Im fed up with that stupid church and its immature leadership! The Sunday school program stinks, and the pastor couldnt preach his way out of a wet paper bag! Most of the people at that church are unspiritual and unloving. Im just not getting fed here anymore, and Im thinking about leaving! Albert was shocked. I cant believe what Im hearing! Just a few weeks ago, you were so excited about the church. You used to brag to everyone that this was the greatest church in town. Just a couple of months ago, you told me that this was the most loving congregation youd ever seen. Whats happened to change you? Its not me. I am not the problem. Its the church thats changed, John fumed. Besides, the incompetence of the Sunday school program is absolutely appalling. Let me tell you a few other things Im upset about ... For an hour, Albert was amazed to hear Johns complaints. For many weeks afterward, he met with John several more times, hoping to encourage him, but to no avail. Instead, he began to empathize with Johns criticisms. It wasnt long before Albert, too, began developing negative attitudes, and eventually even he decided to resign from the Sunday school. Bill Stephens, a friend of Alberts, took notice that both he and John were not as active in the church as they used to be. He observed that when they were in attendance, they usually sat together and would often whisper to each other during the services. He realized something was wrong. One evening, Bill saw the two at a local restaurant talking with others from the church. He decided to join them. Hows it going, guys? Bill said. Wasnt Sundays service great! Fifteen souls came to the Lord. And what a sermon! Praise the Lord! Everyone at the table just looked at each other. Sorry, we didnt notice, John said smugly. I guess we were too preoccupied with the serious problems in the church. Problems? What problems? Bill chirped. Are you guys goofy or what? The church is going terric. Lives are being changed every Sunday, the church is growing, and the congregation is ecstatic. Whats your problem? Apparently youre blinded to the reality of whats really going on, Albert said. The church is ruled by politics and unspiritual idiots who dont care whose feelings they hurt. Besides, the people of this church have more faults than an earthquake zone! And furthermore ... Bill interrupted, Whoa, wait just a second! Ive been wondering whats wrong with you guys, and now I guess I know. You are the ones who are blinded! You have developed a critical, faultnding spirit, and the devil has blinded you from being able to see the beauty of what the Lord is doing. John, I heard you got your feelings hurt when the pastor chose someone else over you for Sunday school superintendent. But instead of talking with him about it and forgiving him, you developed a bitter, unforgiving spirit! Now the devil has deceived you into looking for fault in everything. And to make matters worse, youve taken your discontent and spread it to other brethren. This is a serious violation of Gods Word. You ought to know that the Bible says God hates those who spread discord among the brethren. The word hate is pretty harsh language coming from God, and the Bible warns of calamity that will come upon those who spread discord (Proverbs 6:14-15). This means you! Spreading discontent is disobedience to God and will not help solve problems, John. Gossip and bad-mouthing only make a situation worse. Just a few weeks ago, Albert thought everything was going great until you illuminated him. And how many others have you corrupted with your bad attitude? Bill continued, How did Jesus teach that we should resolve our differences with our brethren? You are to go to the persons who have offended you and talk to them privately and resolve your dispute (Matthew 18:15). Did you keep the matter private and go to the pastor? Did you go to others who offended you? No, you didnt. You selshly chose to spread your complaints and opinions to others to gather their attention and sympathy to your own hurt feelings. John, Albert, where in the Bible does Jesus tell His followers to judge, criticize or condemn our brethren? You cant tell me, because it doesnt say it! However, Jesus did tell you to love and forgive your brethren, to submit, to prefer, to encourage, to dwell together in love and peace, not to bad-mouth one another, and on and on! (John 13:34, Ephesians 4:29-32 and 5:21, Romans 12:10, Hebrews 10:25, Ephesians 4:1-3, Titus 3:2). John and Albert were offended by Bills lecture and thereafter avoided his fellowship. But some time later, Albert became convicted about his sinful attitude and realized that this was why the Lord had not been answering his prayers. If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear (Psalm 66:18). He repented of his sin and asked the Lord to forgive him. A few days later, he went to the pastor and the other Christians he had bad-mouthed, and asked forgiveness. Albert recovered from his troubles and continues to serve the Lord to this day. Sadly, John became more critical and bitter. The discord had taken root and severely damaged his faith. Unfortunately, discord is like a bad apple that will spoil the whole barrel an infection the devil uses to spread his evil disease. John continued to spread the seeds of discord. Dozens left the church, and the discontent spread, severely damaging the ministry. Souls ceased coming to the altars for salvation, and the loss of tithes caused the church to struggle for several years. John also had much heartache and no longer served God. Christians must never forget that their words can promote life or death, unity or division, love or hate. Satan used Johns mouth to nearly destroy a whole church. How many souls have been murdered with the mouths of discontented believers? The hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbor ... (Proverbs 11:9). The Bible clearly warns us to mark those who cause division and strife and to avoid them. They are used by the devil to cause trouble to the church and to the work of the gospel (Romans 16:17). Are you a sower of discord? Are you being used by the devil to cause division and strife in your church? If so, be warned of the severe consequences that you will face unless you repent of your sin and bring your mouth under control. God promises the sower of discord will face calamity. A worthless person, a wicked man, walks with a perverse mouth; he winks with his eyes, he shufes his feet, he points with his ngers; perversity is in his heart, he devises evil continually, he sows discord. Therefore his calamity shall come suddenly; suddenly he shall be broken without remedy (Proverbs 6:1215). If you cant say good things about your church, then keep your mouth shut. If you dont think the church or its leaders are doing what they should, go talk with them privately. Pray daily for God to help them. And if you still dont think the church is doing you any good, then get down to the altar and pray until it does, or get out of there and nd one that will! The Rev. Albert Corey is pastor of Oak Ridge Assembly of God in Crestview, 5297 Shoffner Blvd. The church phone number is 682-8811. You can reach Pastor Corey at 398-7277.

6512977 Real Estate Crestview News Bulletin | A9 Saturday, July 30, 2011 By Mike Chesser Special to the News Bulletin You have visitors from outside the area who have never been to this part of Florida. These people are important to you your grandchildren, or your new in-laws whom youve never met, or old friends new to the area. You want to show them something they will remember, something unique about the place you live that they will not be likely to nd where they came from, wherever that is. Where do you go? What is there to see, or experience, that they cant see almost anywhere else in America? The mall? The conven tion center? A golf course? You could take them to the ight line at Eglin, and that would be different from other ight lines, but only if you could show the test and development facilities that really make Eglin special. But mostly that isnt on public display, and none of us would really want it to be. So what do we show off that they cant nd in New York, or Tampa, or most anywhere else? I have a couple of candidates. The most obvious is the beaches of Destin and South Wal ton. I havent been to New Zealand or Australia, but mostly elsewhere, and I havent found anything close. My next candidate is the Destin Harbor. Most people dont know that 20 years ago the shermen in Destin got to gether to buy the last large piece of land on the harbor to build what is now the home port of the Destin eet. The owners are anyone who would help the eet, but mostly shermen. To day the property remains under the ownership of many of those shermen, and they have taken steps to assure that the future owners are also dedicated to the commercial shing industry. Their property is the center of the Destin Harbor. The city is now complet ing its long-range plan by drafting and presenting a pedestrian easement to run from the Destin bridge, east along the harbor as far as the owners will come together for that purpose. The city has paid to plan the boardwalk, and they will ask each owner to allow their harbor front property to be incorporated into the project. The effort is to construct the boardwalk wider than it is now, and for the city to provide parking, with access for families to use the boardwalk and its busi nesses. Real estate profession als need to keep in mind exactly what an easement is, and what it does. The easement document must be the rst reference to answer those questions, but generally an easement describes by direction and distance its exact boundar ies, in some cases including height. Unless the right is given to relocate an easement, its location is xed, either perpetually or for a lim ited time, as described in the document creating the easement. The purposes for which the easement may be used, the consid eration, and who may use it may also be important. Whether the easement may be extinguished by sale of any parcel is also critical. The legal document I have seen accommodates the boardwalk and its ad jacent owners well. The document was prepared by a professional land plan ning team and by a careful and experienced lawyer. The citys end of the deal, if I understand correctly, is to provide parking on U.S. Highway 98 to complement the walkway and to build, landscape and maintain the boardwalk. That parking is essen tial to the project, and if it can be provided, the Destin Harbor Boardwalk will be an important piece of this unique property. The ben et is not just to Destin or these adjacent owners. The south end of Oka loosa and Walton counties will be a little prouder with one more place different from the rest of the world. Incidentally, anyone who wants to see a similar effect should Google the New York City Highline. That project will prove for gen erations of visitors that to days property owners can work together to provide an undeniable community as set for the future. Mike Chesser is with Chesser & Barr, at 1201 Eglin Parkway in Shalimar.

Special to the News Bulletin FOR T WALTON BEACH Seven in 10 renters believe owning a home is a priority for their future. This is according to the 2011 National Housing Pulse Survey released by the National Association of Realtors, which said more renters than ever (72 per cent) aspire to home own ership, up from 63 percent in 2010. The survey also found an overwhelming majority (72 percent) of Americans said buying a home is a good nancial decision. In addition, almost twothirds (64 percent) said now is a good time to buy a home. When asked why home ownership matters to them, respondents cited stability and safety as the top reason. Long-term economic reasons, such as building equity, followed closely behind. Home ownership strengthens communi ties by preventing crime, improving education and supporting neighborhood upkeep, said Jean Floyd, president of the Emerald Coast Association of Real tors. It also offers home owners savings during tax time. One of those savings is the mortgage inter est deduction (MID). The Emerald Coast Associa tion of Realtors believes the deduction is vital to the stability of the hous ing market and economy, and so do a majority of Americans. The Pulse Survey found respondents were adamantly against eliminating it. Two-thirds of Ameri cans oppose eliminat ing the tax benet, while 73 percent believe elimi nating the MID will have a negative impact on the housing market, as well as the overall economy. Closer to home, survey respondents identied people falling behind on their mortgages and the drop in home values as critical concerns in local housing markets. Foreclo sures also continue to be a large concern. However, the survey also found that respondents were less concerned about the num ber of homes and condos for sale than in previous years. American Strategies and Myers Research & Strategic Services for NARs Housing Opportu nity Program conducted the survey. The telephone survey included 1,250 adults na tionwide. The study has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

Bama faces same expectations, different backdropH OO V E R, Ala. (AP) Trent Richardson keeps a sign in his apartment emphasiz ing that he Never Again wants to experience anoth er miserable loss like last seasons Auburn game. Even more painful memories linger around Tuscaloosa, with a city still recovering from a deadly tornado. For that, no spe cial signs are needed. The expectations are the same as usual for the Crim son Tide this season to win the SEC, maybe win it all but the backdrop and circumstances have an en tirely different feel. Richardson, Alabamas tailback, draws motivation from what accomplishing those goals might mean to a community where 43 peo ple were killed and more than 5,000 homes destroyed by the tornado that hit on April 27. It makes me feel like that, he said Friday at Southeastern Conference media days. I know the rest of the team is think ing like that. Weve got folks out there that lost everything. Folks look at Alabama football, they were born and raised up on Ala bama football. Were going to try to bring joy back to our community. In football matters, theres the constant re minders around the football complex of signs (28-27, Never Again) that popped up shortly after Alabama blew a 24-0 lead and lost to Auburn in the Iron Bowl at Bryant-Denny Stadium. It was a devastating blow for a team that opened the season favored to repeat as national champions but wound up with a 10-3 record that was a disappointment given the programs lofty expectations. We can never get over that (Auburn loss), Rich ardson said. It happened, but I feel like thats some thing we can never put be hind us. The simple fact is we were out there winning, and we gave it up. Maybe that memory ex plains why coach Nick Sa ban said this team has so far displayed a little bit better leadership and more maturity. The seemingly bottom less well of talent remains in place even though the Tide lost four rst-round NFL draft picks, including Heisman Trophy-winning tailback Mark Ingram. And quarterbacks A.J. McCar ron and Phillip Sims enter preseason camp in an ap parent dead heat to replace Greg McElroy. Still, the preseason pre dictions by reporters covering the league installed Alabama as a substantial fa vorite to capture the SEC title. You guys are all a lot smarter than we are as coaches because I could never pick who is going to win the SEC, Saban said. I dont understand how you come to the decisions that you come to. For starters, Alabama has won 36 games and a national title the past three years and polished off last season with a 49-7 thrash ing of Michigan State in the Capital One Bowl. Plus, Saban & Co. have brought in annual hauls of blue chip recruits to replace players like rst-rounders Ingram, wide receiver Julio Jones, defensive lineman Marcell Dareus and left tackle James Carpenter. And the defense has ve rst-team preseason All-SEC picks, led by AllAmerican safety Mark Barron and linebacker Donta Hightower. Richardson, meanwhile, has run for 1,451 yards and 14 touchdowns the past two seasons behind Ingram, and hes already elding questions about being a potential Heisman Trophy contender. He shrugs off the hype surrounding the Tide. Its like that every year, Richardson said. Its not a shock to me, but at the same time, everybody that picked us to win it, we cant let them down. We cant let them down at all. Full house for volleyball camp By Randy Dickson firstname.lastname@example.org There was a packed house as the Crestview volleyball team hosted a high school volleyball camp July 20 and 21. More than 60 players and coaches were on hand for the camp, and that number included a group from Samson, Ala. Forty-ve players from Crest view attended the camp in prepa ration for tryouts that will be held Aug. 1-5 in the Bulldogs gym. Crestview coach Kathy Comb est said the turnout was similar to that of the summer program. Thats a lot of girls, Combest said. From what Ive heard from coaches, in the past, they would have a camp and have maybe 10 or 15 kind of like what we had with the middle school but I hope to change all of that even more. We did this camp before try outs to give everybody a shot about how we coach and how we want things done and maybe give them a heads-up and get them ready for tryouts. With a large number of play ers on hand, Combest and assis tant coach Kim Harrison turned to a couple of their former Baker players, Ashley Miller and Kelly Koontz, for help. Combest and Harrison provided instruction, and as the older and younger play ers broke up to do a specic drill, the younger players would go with Miller and Koontz. Combest emphasized that at tending the camp wasnt a pre requisite for attending tryouts or making the team, but she felt that aspiring players gained an edge by attending the camp. In just the second day, we have improved the passing in that short amount of time, she said midway through the second session of the camp. Weve been working with them on their hitting and tweaking what we think needs to be added to be a power hitter, and its amaz ing. Those things are getting your arm up and not having your el bow bent and snapping that wrist, working on the follow-through and the power jump. Combest and Harrison placed the biggest emphasis on passing the ball. With the high school girls, I have stressed passing, Combest said. They are so into wanting to hit and hit and hit and serve and serve. Dont get me wrong; those are the glory positions. What it is Im stressing to them is if you cant pass the ball, you arent going to get to hit it. Thats what Im stress ing right now because to me that was one of their weakest skills. Combest said as a whole the incoming freshmen were actually better passers than the older play ers. I felt like their fundamental skills were good because you have to pass a lot in middle school, so I commend the coaches in the mid dle school programs, Combest said. We are not getting it (pass ing) in high school, but we are go ing to get it now. Returning a serve, returning a spike, returning a free ball, be cause if you cant make that pass to set that offense up, you are not going to win. All you are doing is sending the ball over and letting them set up on you every time. But youve got to control your of fensive end with a defensive pass, and the position you need to go through is the setter. In the end, the camp was all about helping players get better. This is just a skills camp be fore the tryouts, because if you cant do the skills, you cant play, Combest said.

Q: What is the one area of the hospital that you consider your best kept secret but would like to make the community more aware of? A: As I reflect on our new primary stroke and primary cardiac interventions programs, the fact that we have begun these programs and as of this date, through the conscientious and consistent support of our cardiologists, we have not had one single medical complication. It is truly amazing! Q: What are the long-range goals of the NOMC? A: We will continue to build appropriate programs to support the communicated medical needs of our community and medical staff. Only through collaboration with our community can we appropriately grow to the organization they need and want. Its the very reason we work so hard listening to our customers. Without their input we cant resolve opportunities for improvement, or know what programs and services are required to meet their medical needs. We will keep listening carefully and responding appropriately. With renovations and expansions of services complete, 21st Century Oncology held a ribbon cutting and open house July 12 that was attended by members of the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce.

Thorough (experienced), organized (ef cient), friendly (fun), respectful (courteous) Cr ow ns R oo t By Courtney PerkesFreedom News Service Allison Smith-Conway spent countless days confined to a hospital bed by colon cancer. After she recovered at 28, she became a disciple of daily exercise to hang onto her health. She knew something was wrong last year when she lacked motivation to work out. When she managed to drag herself to the gym, she tripped when she walked on the treadmill. In March 2010, she found out what was wrong. Smith-Conway, 33, had Parkinsons disease, a degenerative disorder of the nervous system that usually develops in those older than 60. For a second time, she found herself afflicted with a disease decades earlier than a typical patient. She felt betrayed by her body. The No. 1 emotion was anger, said Smith-Conway of Laguna Hills, Calif. I treated you so well. Whats this? I nurtured you and took care of you. But she soon decided that exercise would again serve as her lifeline. Despite her limitations, she wanted to share her passion with others experiencing the same loss of mobility. Smith-Conway, who became a certified personal trainer while working at a drug rehab center, created a fitness program for Parkinsons patients. Everything has been so extreme in my life. I didnt feel I had time to go slow, she said. She leads an hour-long sweat session with balance and strength exercises to target the deficits that come with Parkinsons. WORKING OUT WORKS Parkinsons affects balance and mobility because the brain stops making dopamine, a neurotransmitter that coordinates movement and helps regulate mood and motivation. Common symptoms of tremors and stiffness can make physical activity difficult. Yet exercise is essential to maintaining and improving function, doctors say. Exercise also produces a sense of accomplishment and mastery over the helplessness of the disease. In one study, people with Parkinsons who worked out on a treadmill four days a week could walk faster and with greater stability six weeks later. They also scored higher on a motor skills test and quality-oflife assessment. The fact that they can have those moments where theyre a bit more functional is always fun and very enlightening for these patients, said Dr. Christopher Duma, a Newport Beach, Calif., neurosurgeon who treated Smith-Conway. We dont really know the physiological mechanism, but we know that activity will keep the brain happier and moving more smoothly. Duma is also president of the nonprofit Foundation for Neurosciences Stroke and Recovery, which recently hired Smith-Conway as executive director of movement disorders. She has started a support group for early-onset patients like herself and is planning social events and a walking group. Her fitness classes are offered at no cost by the group. In the spring, Smith-Conway underwent three surgeries to implant electrodes for deep brain stimulation, which delivers electrical stimulation to the brain to block abnormal nerve signals that cause tremors and rigidity. She also takes dopamine pills. Exercise is the only thing that makes me feel somewhat normal, SmithConway said. Im not in a hospital bed. Im not in a support group with 70-yearolds. Im doing what Ive always loved. Maladies strengthened her resolve11Crestview Medical Directory 2011CHRISTINE COTTER | Freedom News ServiceAllison Smith-Conway, center, leads a workout for patients with Parkinsons disease. Exercise helps counteract its stiffness and loss of coordination.
