It is the second substa tion Ashley has opened in north Okaloosa County in recent months. In June he opened a substation ofce at Laurel Hill City Hall. Our goals are to keep deputies in their patrol zones, to cut response times, and to make law en forcement more visible to deter criminal or mischie vous behavior, Ashley said on a visit to the new Baker substation, which is locat ed at 5808 State Road 189, across from Health Smart Pharmacy and just behind the Baker Block Museum. The Baker substation is not manned for daily walkin trafc, however, it pro vides an essential working ofce for deputies in the north end of the county and allows them to remain in their zones as they trans mit reports electronically, Ashley said. Ashley said future plans are to install a microwave relay on nearby towers to speed up the electronic submissions, even more than the DSL line in the Baker ofce. We want to have re sponse time in the north end of the county to under eight minutes from any zone, he said. We will evaluate response times after three to six months of having the Laurel Hill and Baker substations open. Deterrence of crime is another goal with the sub stations. People passing by do not know where our elec tronic surveillance is in stalled at our locations and that visibility automatically deters criminal mischief, he said. I have always felt safe in Baker, said Blooms Over Baker owner Leah Harlan. But after our break-in in mid May, I wasnt the only person watching suspicious street trafc at night.

Seniors vs. Crime, a project of the Florida Attorney Generals Of ce, opened its 41st ofce in the state in Crestview on Tuesday. The project, which began as a pilot program in Delray Beach in 2001, is manned by senior sleuths, senior citizens who volunteer their time to investigate complaints from elderly consumers, advocate on their behalf and even work un dercover with law enforcement to catch criminals in the act. There is no cost to seniors who seek the agencys help. Unethical businesses and in dividuals may believe that their senior target is helpless, when, in fact, the target may be working for the Attorney General or local law enforcement in an undercover role, Attorney General Pam Bondi wrote in a statement on the agencys web site. Few volunteer opportunities permit this level of involve ment for seniors in their own protec tion. Seniors vs. Crime Executive Director Don Ravenna, who was on hand for the opening of the Crestview ofce, said the agency handled about 3,000 complaints statewide last year, clearing about 70 percent of work able cases involv ing legitimate com plaints. One of the big gest things we handle are contrac tor disputes, every thing from roong to driveway sealing to other home re pairs, Ravenna said.

Its not the many customers she deals with or the custom installers who she coordinates with for her job at A Team Kitchen and Bath on John King Road in Crestview. The whin ing may come from Dinky, a six-week old pup py; or Faline, a three-week old fawn; or Ri ley, a ve-month old raccoon. Usually one of them needs her attention. Jones owns Nanny Servic es and is a caregiver to young wildlife or livestock brought to her. I have been like this all my life, she said. My father cleaned out orange groves in South Florida and brought home any babies that he found. Foxes were the usual and we would nurse them un til they could hold their own in nature. Although she does admit her mother was never crazy about the short-term adoptions, she has followed her fathers interests. This is my newest arriv al, she says with a smile as she watches the progress of Faline on the ofces smooth ooring. As she ventured onto the vinyl, the deer resembles the childrens cartoon movie character Bambi attempt ing to walk on ice. The fawn is named after Bambis girl friend in the movie. Her tiny hooves are carefully placed on the ooring as she clicks by Jones with her gentle, easy steps.

A parent pointed out to me that, upon the start of this school year, of the open positions available at Crestview High School, nine were for athletic coaches and one was for an academic teacher. Despite the resources available to hire all those coaches, there was no money, apparently, to replace the drama teacher for the more than 140 students who last year took the several classes offered in theater arts. And none of the four visual and performing arts teachers who do remain have salaries approaching the $90,000 enjoyed by the football coach. The numbers could be interpreted as a sad commentary on the value we as a community place on the cultural development of our students, and certainly dont reect our kids demand for quality arts education. But in a diverse community like ours, there should be room and resources for both our artists and our athletes. Two-hundred and fty band members, 125 chorus students, 140 drama students when they had a drama program to study under and two full-time visual arts faculty teaching more than 10 classes a day at Crestview High alone are pretty impressive numbers. More kids want to sing in the chorus, for example, than play football. But despite the seemingly gloomy ofcial support for school arts, the rising swell of support for the north countys cultural maturity continues, indicating theres a need to make room at the table for the arts as evidenced by: A citizen initiative secured a beautiful grand piano for Warriors Hall, expanding the facilitys musical opportunities. The all-volunteer north county committee of the Okaloosa Arts Alliance (OAA) will produce ve arts festivals this year alone, drawing students, professional and amateur artists and art lovers from throughout the region. Downtown Crestview was lled with hundreds of people enjoying the second summer of three successive, successful Music and Arts on Main Street festivals. Trained volunteer art teachers offer visual art instruction to our students. Music programs are expanding in our elementary schools, generating excitement among young musicians as they prepare for middle school and later, high school band programs. The Crestview Public Library continues to enlarge its role as the north countys de facto community arts center, with new Music in the Library concerts, providing a home for the arts alliances north county committee, hosting student art shows, and tackling a backlog of demand to exhibit on its walls and lobby display cases. For the rst time in several years, sufcient State of the Arts specialty license tags were sold in the county to allow the OAA to again offer grants to arts organizations to expand our cultural life. Interest in forming a community theater troupe is again on the rise after several recent false starts. Theres plenty of room in our community for both the arts and sports, and surprisingly, its not at all unusual for the twain to meet. I cite Ryan Vance, a CHS senior who not only is a budding Bulldog football star, but one of the most talented, gifted young actors Ive ever encountered. Allocating a community and its schools limited money should never deteriorate to a battle between athletes and artists. But funds and resources should be divided equitably between the two. If volunteers can teach elementary school art, why cant volunteers free up some more resources and coach sports? Among Crestview Highs job openings should be at least a drama teacher in addition to that plethora of coaches. Just ask Ryan. See the special Community Arts insert in todays Crestview News Bulletin.

Local Crestview News Bulletin | A3 Saturday, September 24, 2011 roadway. Daily, she makes the trip into the ofce with Jones and drinks from a bottle lled with warmed goats milk. She spends her days on wobbly legs with Jones and at night goes to Jones 11-acre ani mal haven in Bratt. Jones has a Possession and Trapper license, and is working on her Wildlife Res cue permit. She volunteers to give sick, injured, abused, or orphaned animals a second chance. Once they recover, the animals are released back in the wild, returned to their owners or are adopted out. I have had more baby goats and calves than I can count, Jones said. Some times their mother rejects them at birth, others die giv ing birth to the livestock. I keep them until they can be returned to their owner and take care of themselves at the farms. Although she does not charge for her services, Jones does accept dona tions. Some rehabilitators establish nonprot organi zations to provide tax relief for their rehabilitation-re lated expenses and dona tions. Jones said that the non-prot paperwork pro cess is lengthy and that the owner of the animal usually just gives her the money for the formula. Time and attention are not always something that an animals owner has for these babies, she said. I get them older and healthier and return them. Sometimes people will nd a sick or injured animal or one that has been separat ed from its mother. When I get them, I look them over for injuries or abnormali ties and do any basic rstaid that I can, Jones said. I have a great veterinarian who is happy to help when I need it and I am working on my vet assistant certicate. Then it becomes provid ing them with a nutritious diet, and safe and supportive captive surroundings. And while some people might believe that Mother Nature should take her course with wild animals without human intervention, Jones has a caring heart and has built a reputation as a nurturing professional. Ive had puppies, like this one, she points to the puppy that is whining in her leather ofce chair for her attention. His mother ate all of her litter but him and he is already adopted by a good home who is just wait ing for him to be old enough to join them. Ive had squirrels, goats, calves, deer, raccoons, and several exotics, including a coatimundi that needed a new home. I am happy to help anyone with anything come to think of it, I have never had a monkey. Jones can be reached at 420-4416 or jerri.nannyser email@example.com. $ 29 00 Must present coupon.

I just ap preciate their presence. The substations are also ideal for the interviews Oka loosa County deputies must conduct in those areas, Ash ley said. The convenience of deputies not leaving their zones and residents not trav eling far from their homes is an advantage. We are only going to be in this ofce for one year, he said. When the Okaloosa County Teachers Credit Union moves into their new location, we will contract with the county for their Baker ofce and save the money from this ofce. Ashley also gave a time line for occupation of former Florida Highway Patrol ofce on the cor ner of State Road 85 and U.S. Highway 90. The state owns the ofce and they have just assigned the property to us, Ashley said. We sill start minor re modeling before the end of September. The old FHP ofce will be the public ofce in Crestview, with operations activities remaining at our current Brackin Street loca tion. The front desk should be operational by Thanksgv ing, with all the movements completed by the rst of the year. Ashley also announced his efforts to nd another lo cation for a substation in the Blackmon area. Deputies patrol more than 450 square miles north of Shoal River bridge on S.R. 85. victimized can drop in the ofce or call and volun teers will investigate. If a crime has been commit ted, the matter is turned over to the proper law en forcement agency. Its a great program, Crestview Police Chief Brian Mitchell said. They may be apprehensive to call us, but they will come and speak to one of these gentlemen or ladies with the volunteer program. Many times a phone call is all it takes to cor rect an issue. When the person who has committed fraud against a senior citizen learns that an agency partnering with the State Attorney Generals Of ce is investigating a complaint, they will often make things right, Raven na said. In addition to the $1.4 million recovered last year for seniors who were vic tims of scams, the agency also netted some $600,000 in realized gain in 2010, Ravenna said. A good example (of re alized gain) is when a con tractor comes in and you give him $10,000 to do a job and he walks out after $8,000 of it is done, Raven na said. We persuade him to come back and nish the job. The senior doesnt get $2,000 back but they get $2,000 of work back. So far 12 senior citizens have volunteered to man the Crestview ofce, which is located in the OSullivan Creel suites at 296 S. Ferdon Blvd. Initially, the ofce will be open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Hours will be expanded later if there is a need, Crestview ofce manager J.B. Whitten said. Crestview community activist Malcolm Haynes was instrumental in get ting the ofce opened. He rst heard of the program during a presentation in Pensacola and convinced the Kiwanis Club and the Crestview Police Depart ment to partner to make it happen. OSullivan Creel CPAs Jimmy Lundy and Dan Bowers donated ofce space inside their suites. The Crestview Police De partment provided furniture and le cabinets, and Crestview Walmart Man ager Pat Riley donated an ofce computer.

The school bus was southbound on Galliver Cutoff and stopped south of Charlie Day Road to let students off when Holt resident Savannah Mat thews, 18, struck the rear of the bus with her 2010 Ford Ranger, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. The bus was stopped when the driver of the truck rear-ended it, Bak er Fire District Deputy Fire Chief Brian Easter ling said at the scene. Matthews told troop ers she did not see the bus was stopped until it was too late and that when she tried to stop, the truck be gan sliding on the roadway that was wet from rain, the report states. Matthews suffered mi nor injuries, as did pas senger Damian Harrill, 26, of Crestview.

A 15-year-old student on the bus was also trans ported by ambulance to North Okaloosa Medical Center, according to the FHP report. The Okaloosa County School District sent an other bus to pick up the students. Blackman Fire Department assisted Baker remen, as did members of the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Ofce. The Florida Highway Patrol was also called to the scene. Trafc was backed up on Galliver Cutoff while the accident scene was cleared. The driver of the bus was not injured. Matthews was charged with careless driving. Truck rear-ends school bus in Holt; 6 injured By Tom McLaughlin Florida Freedom Newspapers The state attorneys ofce announced Wednesday that it will sift through Crestview City Council email records to determine whether mem bers have violated Floridas Sunshine law. Chief Assistant State At torney Greg Marcille said his ofces decision to inves tigate the councils actions came after a complaint was lodged and more than 5,000 email records were submit ted to his ofce. Based on the complaint, we will open an investiga tion to determine whether or not any violations have occurred, Marcille said. Marcille said he expects the investigation to be lengthy. Based on the large num ber of emails and other infor mation to be reviewed, this investigation will be very in-depth and will involve a substantial amount of time, he said. Cal Zethmayr, with WAAZ-FM and WJSB-AM radio in Crestview, led the complaint against the city council. Zethmayr said he present ed the state attorneys ofce with a disc containing 5,281 email messages obtained through a public records request led by the radio stations, Crestview-based WCVCTV.com and the North west Florida Daily News. The request was made after several emails were obtained by the media, which seemed to indicate some council members were discussing city issues out side properly noticed public meetings. Barbara Petersen, president of Floridas First Amendment Foundation, said some of the email com munications clearly violated the Sunshine law. State Rep. Matt Gaetz, an attorney with experience in public records litigation, reviewed some of the emails and agreed with Petersen. The request for council emails was delivered to Crestview City Hall Aug. 31. Council President Charles Baugh allowed his email records to be re leased Tuesday. Zethmayr said Baugh turned over 2,592 emails. Councilwoman Robyn Helt had turned over 972 emails and Councilmen Tim Grandberry, Phillip Berezo and Ben Iannucci released 927, 608 and 39 emails, respectively. Zethmayr said there had been 229 emails in Iannuccis City Council in box Sept. 1, the day after the public records request was presented to the city. State law requires that public records, including electronic public records, be maintained for at least 30 days after a public re cords request is made.

6512811 Real Estate A6 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, September 24, 2011 By Mike Chesser Special to the News Bulletin Last week, I spoke to a group of auditors and accountants. When I nished, a question was asked that I had not thought about, but it turned out to be what the entire discussion should have been about. The question was: With all the discussion about bad times in the economy, is there any money still to be made in real estate? My answer was, absolutely. Ironically, had the question not been asked, the most important message that could have been discussed at this or any other meeting about real estate would have been overlooked. The truth is, there has never been a better time to make money in real estate. Real estate prices will not stay lower than the cost to build. Today they are. There are many professional investors who can tell you more about making money in real estate than I. I can only share my thoughts, forged over years that include bad decisions as well as good. This may be like Bill Clinton giving marital advice. But he is still married. Who would have thought Al Gore would be the rst one divorced? Nevertheless, if this is really a good time to invest in real estate, there must be a way to do it, right? To start, I suspect you do not have to be creative, or brilliant, or even imaginative. You can buy real estate off the shelf, at something like the offered price, and if you buy something you can use and hold, you will not be disappointed. You need to live somewhere. If you rent, the house you live in has never been available for a lower price, and it will not be again. How do I know that? Because now its being offered, generally, for less than the cost to build. That pattern will not last. Builders will not continue to build at a loss. They cant. If you need it, buy something you can afford and be proud to have it. Fix it. Love it. Make friends with your neighbors, because if it is truly an investment, you will own it for a long time. In addition to the present cost of the house, unless mortgage companies begin to pay you to borrow their money, interest rates cannot be lower. The key, if you do this successfully, is to be able to hold what you own. Live in it. Work in it, or rent it out. But dont buy thinking you can give it back to the bank if it doesnt work out. That may work on some basis for stuff purchased during the Silly Years, but theres no room for error for things you buy today. You are not likely to get a do-over in the market. Be ready to hold the property and have a reasonable plan to pay for it. Then, if you buy it at todays prices, you cant lose. Billy Teel, the dean of appraisers in Okaloosa County, once assisted me in teaching a class in real estate. He told the class that an investor does not make money selling his real estate. He makes his money, if it is to be made, when he buys. If thats true, and if you can afford to buy intelligently, youre wasting time to not be in the market, right now. If you really want to get cute, you can look for short sales, foreclosures, tax sales, or some other access to real estate that will get you in at an even lower price. Be careful. There are radio ads and come-ons that make this look like childs play, and an instant Shangri-la. When you buy someone elses misery, be careful that it doesnt become yours as well. I will talk in this space next month about some of the ways that has happened. Dont understand this to mean you shouldnt look for such deals. Most buyers just shouldnt do it without a capable, independent property inspector and both a title insurance policy and a lawyer whose assignment is to make sure you dont buy a property only partially foreclosed, or a short sale property not properly closed. A professional Realtor will make sure you have that protection, because your satisfaction is his or her future, just as it is that of the inspector, the lawyer, and the closing agent. We get our economy back on track by clearing out an ocean of foreclosed and unsold property that needs to be in the hands of owners who use and care for their property. My hope is that we all teach our children to be responsible spenders and investors. A big part of their success will likely be the way they purchase and hold real estate. There is no better time to get started. Mike Chesser is a board certied Real Estate Attorney with Chesser & Barr, P.A. The most important question in all of real estate MIKE CHESSER StatePoint Does your home feel drab or dark? Are you tired of the same old rooms and color schemes? There are many easy, costeffective ways to brighten your homes appearance, cheering up its occupants in the process. From fresh coats of paint to sunny lighting schemes to lively window treatments, small changes can have a big impact on your home. And some projects can be tackled in just one short weekend. Window treatments By literally letting more light into your home, you can make your days more cheerful. Try replacing heavy drapes or dark colored shades with translucent curtains or blinds. This way, you let in natural light while keeping prying eyes at bay. Other ways to invite natural light into your home include adding internal windows within rooms to let light ow from one space to another, or installing skylights. Energy-efcient accents Your lighting scheme can set different moods in different rooms. To make a room both cheerful and efcient, use three different types of lighting: ambient or background lighting, task lighting and accent lighting. Stylish new options for background lighting abound, such as pendants, chandeliers, ceiling-mounted lights and new kinds of xtures that can be hung in multiple ways. LED lighting is perfect to illuminate places for reading, food preparation, dressing or other tasks. With a very long lifespan, such lights may never need to be replaced and can save you money on electricity bills because they are brighter with lower wattage. The latest in accent lighting includes strings of remarkably thin LED light pods that can easily bend around corners and t into small spaces, such as those from manufacturers like Kichler Lighting. This type of sleek, modern lighting adds drama when entertaining, while also lowering electricity costs. Accent lights like these use little energy so they can stay on all night, an added plus for homes with small children or when overnight guests visit, says Jeff Dross, Kichler Lightings corporate director of education and industry trends. No two homes are alike and their lighting shouldnt be either. Warmth and color Liven up rooms by selecting a bright color scheme. Paint sets the basic tone, so choose a light color, such as inviting yellows or cheery pastels. Remember, dark colors can absorb light and make rooms darker. You can paint an entire room a bright color or just one wall. And you can add warmth as well as color by layering on pillows and throws to accent favorite pieces of furniture.

Aiming for titles By Randy Dickson firstname.lastname@example.org BAKER Several years ago, the National Basketball Associations Chicago Bulls coined the term threepeat when they won a third straight NBA championship. The Baker volleyball team has long since passed the threepeat in district championships, having won eight-consecutive titles. So the question has to be what would one call a ninth-straight district cham pionship? Would it be a Triple Threepeat? Or could be considered a Threepeat, Threepeat? Whatever it is called, there is no denying that nine straight titles would only be slightly more impres sive than the eight the Gators have already won. Baker coach Tomikko Parks likes her squads chances to win the new District 1-1A, but she knows the Gators have their work cut out for them if they want to keep their im pressive streak alive with a young team. This is a totally different team than we had last year, she said. Last year we had six seniors, and this year I have two (Laurie Steele and Taylor Morgan). We pretty much have an all-new varsity squad. Weve got people playing in dif ferent positions that they havent played before. They are still learn ing one another, and they are learn ing the little nuances of where that person is going to be and that kind of thing. Steele and Morgan have em braced their roles as senior lead ers. Its pretty special because we are close to the girls, Steele said. We are not that far apart in age, so we can really help each other. Morgan agreed. It puts a little more pressure on us, but we just have to work harder, she said. Junior Katie Wickery joins Steele and Morgan as a player with signi cant varsity experience before this year, forcing Parks to change the way she approached the season. This year we spent a lot of time in practice at the beginning of the season learning positions and learn ing where to be on the court, she said. We spent a lot of time making sure people were in the right plac es, whereas if you have seniors, its a little bit different because most of them know those positions. This year we had to spend a lot more time in making sure people know the right position they need to be in. Through their rst nine match es, the young Gators have shown no signs of missing a beat in hopes of winning another title. Baker is 7-2, with the only losses coming to Class 4A Walton. Each season the Gators not only shoot for the district championship, but they eye a state title as well. With the new 1A rural classication, that goal could be a reality this year. Our rst goal is to win the dis trict championship and then take care of that stuff, Parks said. We are just trying to do everything we can throughout the season to get to that point. Weve also prepared ourselves with that thought in mind that we are going to win that state championship. The goals havent changed, but the people at the end might have changed. The goal is still there to try to win that state championship. By Randy Dickson email@example.com CRESTVIEW It took six matches, ve sets and four extra points be fore the Crestview volleyball team picked up its rst win of the season. The Bulldogs started off fast and held on late to beat Navarre 3-2 on Monday by scores of 25-10, 25-19, 1325, 22-25, 19-17. Not only was the win the rst for Crestview this year, it also was the rst win at the helm of the Bulldogs for Kathy Combest, who coached the Baker volleyball team to more than 500 wins. Combest said Crestviews dif cult start to the season brought back some memories of her early days coaching the Gators. My rst two years at Baker, it was just like this, Combest said. We would almost win and then we wouldnt, so it takes me back. They (the Bulldogs) needed that (win). These girls did not know how to win. Early on, it looked as if Crestview (1-5) nally had winning gured out. Sara Hamilton picked up the rst point of the night with her rst of 14 kills and then took over in serve and delivered an ace as the Bulldogs went in front 2-0. The Raiders (1-7) stayed close early and trailed 11-7 when the Bull dogs closed out the rst set with a 14-3 run. Nothing was easy the rest of the night for either team. Crestview started strong in the second set, and it looked as if the Bulldogs would make short work of the Raiders with Crestview leading 11-5. But with Allison Freer in serve, the Raiders were able to pull even at 11-11. The rest of the set consisted of short runs that had the momentum swinging from one team to the other on every point. Crestview pulled away, however, to win the set as the Bulldogs got strong play up front from Jasmine Middleton, Kerrie York and Haleigh Hollinhead. Navarre tried to take control of the match in the third set as the Raiders quickly jumped in front 11-2 and were never challenged. Crestview led 13-7 in the third set when the Raiders came racing back behind the play of Shamani Booker at the net. Booker was a one-lady wrecking crew as she pelted the Bulldogs with one kill after another to help Navarre pull even in the match. The largest lead either team could muster in the nal set was three points by the Bulldogs as Crestview pulled out the win. It was tough losing the rst two (sets) without a lot of effort, but then we came back and won the next two, and we really fought, Navarre coach Kim Gardner said. It shows a lot of character of our girls, and Im really proud of the way they held strong and really pushed through. It shows that we have a lot of ght that we need for the rest of the season as we get ready for district. Middleton had 17 kills for Crest view. Sara Hamilton added 14 kills, and Hollinhead had 11. Crestview won the JV match 2-0. Ill take school spirit any time For as long as I can remember, Ive been hearing about the Bolles School in Jacksonville. Most people refer to it as Jacksonville Bolles, or simply Bolles, because its the only school by that name in the state. Every state has at least one Bolles, a private prep school that offers a top education for students whose parents are willing and able to fork out big money to an elite institution. Usually those schools, as is the case with Bolles, also have top athletic programs. In 2005, Sports Illustrated named the Bolles athletic program the ninth-best in the country and the second-best in the state. Bolles was the only school with an enrollment of less than 1,000 to make the top 25 nationally. I nally had a chance to see Bolles rsthand last week when I caught a ride on the Crestview Quarterback Clubs charter bus to Jacksonville for the for the game between the Bulldogs of Crestview and the Bulldogs of Bolles. The campus, at least what I saw of it, was as beautiful as one would expect from a high-dollar school. The schools Skinner-Barco Stadium was equally pristine, with a synthetic track surrounding the articial turf football eld. The years of the schools 10 state championships in football are listed on the wall of the concession stand on the visitors side of the eld. A short kick past the end zone with the scoreboard is the schools Olympic-size swimming pool. Throughout the night, the Bolles kicker splashed several balls into the pool. As impressive as those things were, I still sensed something was missing, and that something was school spirit. I dont know how many the home side of the stadium will seat, but it was only about two-thirds full at best. There was nothing similar to Crestviews Dog Pound cheering section. The Bolles fans in attendance cheered occasionally, but not loud or long. It was hardly how I thought a school with 10 state championships would act. And, despite my occasional clashes with the Big Red Machine and other bands, Ill admit things just didnt seem right as Bolles doesnt have a band. Lets face it, piped-in college ght songs over the public address system can only do so much for raising team spirit. There is no denying Bolles has a great program and great tradition, and nobody can say it isnt a great school. The students at Bolles are denitely a part of something special, but I dont think it is as special as what Crestview and Baker students experience every day. There is just something about school spirit.
