When rst presented to the council, members brainstormed ideas includ ing a small downtown park ing lot, a skate park and a branch library. Council member Robyn Helt, who, as a real es tate agent, had been ap proached by owner Billie Carter about selling the land to the city, emerged as a strong proponent of ac quiring the property. Carter has requested $38,000 for the land, Helt said, though the property appraiser lists the value at $29,907. Helt emphasized at both recent council meetings that she would not be in volved in the transaction should the sale of Carters property to the city be con cluded and that she would not benet nancially or otherwise from the sale. However, she said, the city should consider the offer. I see a value in the city acquiring this piece of property because of its close proximity to City Council ponders land offer and potential uses A lot for parking? Community gets a hard-hitting lesson By Brian Hughes brianh@crestviewbulletin.com A vote by the Crestview City Council to dis band the Veterans Affairs Committee had the unintended consequence of also dismissing committee chairman Fletcher Williams Jr., just as he was organizing what is promising to be the citys biggest Veterans Day parade in history. Williams, who was recently appointed state commander for the American Legion, representing more than 143,000 Legionnaires throughout Florida, had earlier passed out challenge coins, used to reward extra effort in the military, to several members of the city council who supported the Veterans Day pa rade. Just recently the parade was facing cancel lation when only ve entrants had registered. News reports, however, generated renewed interest in the event, and within the past two weeks, more than 30 additional businesses, clubs and organizations have registered to parade in the Saturday, Nov. 12, event. We have more participants now than weve ever seen and theyre still coming in, Williams said. This things looking up. Williams said he recently met with Mayor David Cadle, and together they devised an idea to appoint a committee just to organize the Veterans Day parade. The proposal has generated a lot of interest, Williams said. Theres a lot of citizens that want to par ticipate, he told the council at its Monday evening meeting. One of the problems that almost led to the cancellation of this years parade, Williams said, was that members of the citys Veterans Affairs Committee, which is supposed to or ganize the parade, were not attending meet ings. Every time we have a meeting, Im the only one to show up, he said. Council Member Robyn Helt said the so lution, then, was disbanding the Veterans Af fairs committee. She was angered to have to read in the newspaper that the parade might be cancelled, she said. These committees are an extension of this council, Helt said. I am not going to be in support of allowing a committee to con tinue to function if they are not going to be in Council disbands vets committee, accidentally dismisses chairman Leading the parade See PARKING A3 See PARADE A3 BAKER SCHOOL RED RIBBON ACTIVITIES Red Ribbon Week commemorated the ultimate sacrice made by DEA Special Agent Enrique Kiki Camarena, who died at the hands of drug trafckers in Mexico while ghting the battle against illegal drugs. The 37-year-old ofcer was tortured to death by drug cartel members. Tuesday: Red Ribbon Day ribbons were passed out to students and the elementary school hall and doorway decorations went up. Wednesday: Hide from Drugs Day students wore camo; a scavenger hunt for elementary school students took place; Red Ribbon assembly for third and fth grade; and red wrist bands were distributed for grades 6 through 12. Thursday: Show your School Spirit Day. This was also pledge card and banner signing day for the students. The sheriffs drug dog, Rocky, visited for a program. Friday: Wear Red Day to support the cause. Randy Wise Homes supported the week as corporate sponsor. His donation to the school resource ofcer bought stickers, pledge cards, the banner and other materials for the week. Wise also signed the pledge banner with Baker students. I tell parents that their kids in our school might as well change their last name to Fountain from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. because I feel as if they belong to me, Okaloosa County Sheriffs Deputy and Resource Ofcer Don Fountain said. Programs like this are important because the success and safety of these childrens lives is important to me. By Paula Kelley & Brian Hughes paulak@crestviewbulletin.com brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Red Ribbon Week began Tuesday for area schools and Baker School classes were active with the theme, Too smart to start. Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. During the week, drug prevention groups worked to inspire youths to commit to living drug free. I am here to talk with you about decision making, said Sgt. 1st Class Tony Saldana, a Crestview resident who heads the Army National Guards Panhandle Region drug demand reduction program. Also an ofcer with the Florala, Ala. Police Department, the former Marine speaks with youths at assemblies and school programs. Red Ribbon Week is a time for you to learn about the less glamorous side of drugs, cigarettes, beer and alcohol that you know so much about, Saldana said. Ad vertising and marketing makes you know the name brands and makes these things seem like the cool thing for you to do. Saldana used an oversized Tarlboro cigarette as a prop and asked the students to identify the brand. Their answers were varied and he made them realize that they know brands because of what they have See COMMUNITY A3 Sgt. 1st Class Tony Saldana of the National Guards drug demand reduction program displays a habitual smokers lung during the Red Ribbon Week assembly at Baker School.

Whats HAPPENING By Brian Hughes brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Its fur versus feathers as the Crestview High School Bulldogs leadership class accepts the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots challenge to collect more toys than the Eagles will at Niceville High School. Students in Stephanie Sanders class are determined to make sure the trophy remains in Crestview after it was earned last year. The annual program collects toys for underprivileged local kids, and already the Crestview team is well on its way. Sanders said her kids have reached out to the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce to encourage local businesses to help with the drive, either by collecting toys from employees and customers or by making cash contributions. Contributors may drop off new, unopened toys at Crestview Highs lobby reception desk, give them to any leadership class student, or take them to Sanders in room 117. While cash donations or checks are also welcome, new rules ask that no stuffed toys be donated. To help encourage individual classes to donate, leadership students said some faculty members are offering to host pizza and doughnut parties or other incentives for kids who bring toys to their classes. The leadership class is also working to set up a donations acceptance table at Winn-Dixie soon. The deadline to donate toys or money is Friday, Nov. 4. Niceville High students will bring their donations to Crestview for the Bulldogs vs. Eagles game that evening, during which the Marines will accept both schools donations. Hopefully the trophy will remain in Crestview, but ultimately, the winners are the kids who receive the toys.BR IAN HU G H E S | News Bulletin Members of the Crestview High School leadership class, including (standing, left to right) Jennah White, Jessie Rubach and Amanda Eidem, and (kneeling) Aaron Jenkins and Michael Lawson show off Toys for Tots donations.

He asked the students what they want to be when they grow up. The third, fourth and fth graders eagerly raised their hands and responses included a doctor, a lawyer, and to be in the military. I ask that question dur ing every presentation in front of every group and I can tell you now that not once has anyone ever re sponded that they wanted to be a drug addict or an alcoholic. No one has ever said I wanna be a lazy los er, not once have I gotten that answer, Saldana said. But people do grow up to become that. It is my job and the job of people like Ofcer Fountain to help you make that decision today and reenforce your good decisions in the future. Saldana explained that cigarettes are a costly hab it. He had the kids do the math of a pack of cigarettes at $5 a pack times seven days a week and four weeks a month and 12 months a year. He talked about the more than 4,000 chemical ingredients in a cigarette, including ammonia, arse nic, methanol (rocket fuel) and microscopic particles of PVC pipe. The students are then shown a large glass jar lled with a dark syrupy substance. It equals the amount of tar that lls up a smokers lungs in one year. Oooohhs and yucks came from the students. I want to show you the truth, Saldana said as he lifted a pink, double mass into the air from a large container. These are the lungs of a non-smoker, a young athlete who was killed by a drunk driver. He was an organ donor and his healthy lungs are used in programs like this one so that we can show you what the reality of the lungs used in the life of a non-smoker versus a smoker look like. He opened a second container and held a greyblack charred-looking, smaller, porous version of the same organ. These lungs were donated by the family members of a person who smoked four packs of ciga rettes a day for over 25 years, he said. Yucks and eewws lled the room. He talked about health, and about decision making in choosing to begin smok ing or drinking. He held up representative glasses of beer, wine and a shot of whisky as the discussion turned to alcoholism. Our research says that cigarettes and beer often are a gateway that leads to more for young people. Leads them into illegal drug use and excessive use of alcohol, Saldana said. Which one do you think about? That evening Saldana took his drug demand re duction program to Crest views Warriors Hall, where his exhibit joined informa tional displays and educa tional materials sponsored by the Crestview Police Departments Criminal In vestigations, Street Crimes Unit and Community Polic ing divisions. Again, reaction to the diseased lungs and jar full of a smokers annual tar production drew the hopedfor reaction from young and old attendees. Thats disgusting! Saldanas son, Mark, 8, ex claimed when viewing his dads display with his sister Tani, 14. The kids really get a visual of what smoking and doing drugs can do to a healthy person, CPD In vestigator Marsha Bennett said. That can help them make smart decisions when they are tempted to try it. Why would people use that stuff? Destiny Curry, 8, asked incredulously as she and her dad Mike ex amined a narcotics display and read about the adverse effects of drug abuse, which include death. My passion is to save lives, Tony Saldana said to the Warriors Hall as sembly. We can inuence our children to do the right thing. We have to preach and teach. Saldana will have his dis play at this evenings Fall Festival on Main Street for those who missed his pre sentations at Baker School and Warriors Hall. support of our position. Council Member Phillip Berezo counseled caution and suggested contacting Veterans Af fairs Committee members before taking any ac tion, but Helt moved to proceed with disbanding the committee. Seconded by Council Member Ben Iannucci, the motion passed 3-2, with Berezo and Council President Charles Baugh Jr. voting no. Mr. Williams, you now have nothing to do, Cadle said, then telling the council, We have no one to head up the Veterans Day parade. You just dismissed him. You acted so quickly you didnt think this through. After the realization of what they had just done registered, Helt said she had been consid ering suggesting city staff, perhaps from the Ad ministrative Services department, help Williams organize the parade. Lets appoint them, Cadle said. Dont leave him hanging out there. We need to do something to appoint Mr. Wil liams to head the parade committee, Baugh ac knowledged. I will see this one through, Williams prom ised. Helt then moved to appoint Williams to contin ue to organize the parade and the motion passed unanimously. This is a wonderful council, lots of passion, lots of energy. Lets not legislate through emo tion, Cadle cautioned after the vote.

Hall, Helt said. After speaking with the citys grant consultant, Helt determined that the land could be acquired and a parking lot constructed us ing a community block devel opment grant (CBDG) that will fund a planned down town parking lot. The CBDG money, however, could only be used for a parking lot. Any other use would require a different funding source. We do have another op tion available to us. One of the uses of CRA (Communi ty Redevelopment Agency) funds is to acquire proper ties for various reasons, Crestview Administrative Services Director Wing said, if the city can demonstrate there is a public purpose. That seems to be a very small parcel, Mayor David Cadle said. That seems to be a lot of money for 26 park ing spaces. Council member Ben Iannucci said, Anytime we acquire anything off the tax roll, thats a loss. Helt countered that a parking lot could be a rev enue stream for the city if it had parking meters on it or if spaces were leased to monthly clients, such as stu dents or staff of the Florida A&M University pharmacy school being developed less than two blocks away in the historic Alatex Building. The revenue could be double the ad valorem tax es, Helt said. If its acquired under a CBDG grant, we couldnt charge for its use, Wing cautioned. Fearing that another in terested purchaser might make a bid on the land be fore the city could act, Helt made a motion to purchase the property but only at its appraised value, reiterat ing, I think we could use the property as a revenue source. I would not like to see the bulk of the CBDG grant escape us, Baugh agreed, noting that any grant funds left over after the original parking lot is constructed would have to be returned. The rst step in deter mining what we want to do with it is, you gotta own it, Helt said. Her motion passed 3-2 with Baugh and council member Tim Grandberry voting nay. BRIAN HUGHES | News Bulletin Seen from the backyard, this lot under consideration for purchase by the city is located across Woodruff Avenue from the Crestview Fire Departments main station. The rst step in determining what we want to do with it is, you gotta own it. Robyn Helt Council member PARKING from page A1

In my previous article I began talking about how our crazy-busy lifestyle has gotten us to be in a reactive mode of living rather than proactive. We tend to let circumstances dictate how we use our time and what we focus on. Thats a bit backwards. Its like we are twisting the proper order of things. Instead of Ready, aim, re! we live by Fire! ready, aim Thats messed up. This kind of lifestyle causes us to rush around like chickens with our heads cut off. It causes us to believe we are proving our worth because we are rushing around looking busy all the time. This reminds me of a comical phrase I heard someone say some years ago, Jesus is coming back! Look busy! Wrong. It will do us no good to look busy. More importantly, if we are going to be busy, let it be a sacred busy-ness. By that, I mean doing the work of our Lord, because when we do the work of our Lord, our attention is focused on Him. And we then can remember how we are dependent on God for everything. Jesus talks about the birds of the air and how God feeds them and how we are more important than they. And since we are more important than they, God will take more care of us. In a very real way, Jesus gently reminds us that we are dependent on God for everything. It is God who has given us life. And because God has given us life, he will provide for our needs. But for some this is a hard lesson to hear. We have been taught to rely on ourselves for everything in life. We are supposed to be in control of our circumstances, our happiness, our schedules everything. The way to give up the need for control is to adopt a mindset which helps you remember that if you think your life is okay now, with God in control, you will live an even better life. When you give up your worry, your need to be busy, your need to control, you will be able to nd God, enjoy him and enjoy the life he has for you. When you nd yourself worrying about things or if you are feeling overburdened, dont hesitate to pray something like, God, this is bigger than I am. I cannot do it alone. Give me the wisdom to understand what it is you want me to do. Help me to trust you and not worry. When you give it over to God, you can be assured everything will be all right. God will guide you as you continue to work on what is before you. It is important to remember that God is found not only in the large and miraculous aspects of life, but more often in the plain, the simple and the ordinary aspects of life. In fact, God is found more often in the plain, simple and ordinary when we have eyes to see. The work each of us does, not just work done in or for a church, is sacred. Whether you work around the house and yard, or are a secretary, a lawyer, a legislator, a homemaker, a taxi driver, a banker, a teacher, a parent, a grandparent whatever you do, it is the work of God. When you begin to see what you do in everyday life as something sacred, you will begin to nd God in the ordinary things of every day. Jesus gives an invitation to consider: Consider the lilies ... To consider literally means to meditate upon. Considering is the gift of being quiet, of putting some distance between you and those things that weigh you down. It is a time to stop and catch your breath, to intentionally focus on the presence of God, to replenish your soul. This is to get ready. Considering is a time to focus on our creator and what God would have you do, to discern Gods will, and nd direction for what lies ahead. This is to take aim. And when your time of considering is over, you go and do as you have discerned, you put into action what has been considered this is to ready, aim, re the proper order in which things are supposed to be done. Gods presence is found in the ordinary fabric of life as well as the extraordinary and spectacular events in life. Be sure to place the activities of your life in proper perspective. Get ready. Take aim. And then do as God leads. Ready, aim, re! The Rev.

From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. today, the Crestview Public Library and the Crestview Walmart will have drop-off boxes set up with law en forcement ofcers at each. Prescription drug abuse is a growing problem throughout the country, and disposing of medica tions no longer in use in your household makes the possibilities of the drugs falling into the wrong hands less of a concern, of cials said. Medications can be placed in the collection boxes anonymously with out follow-up from law enforcement. However, intravenous medication injection systems, syringes and needles cannot be ac cepted.

Pill Take-Back Initiative today Milton resident Eric Auston Jr. now holds the distinction of having land ed the largest athead cat sh ever caught with a rod and reel in Florida waters. Auston, 33, was shing with his good friend Bran dy Wallace Oct. 9 at 2:30 a.m. in the Yellow River when he caught a athead catsh weighing 55.05 pounds. He used a rod and reel with 25-pound-test line and a small bluegill as bait. His sh was substan tially larger than the existing Florida record athead a sh that weighed 49.39 pounds, caught in the Apalachicola River in 2004. Auston said he shes for atheads only a few times each year. His biggest athead prior to last weekend weighed 42 pounds, but that sh was caught on a bush hook. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) main tains records for most spe cies of freshwater sh. The FWC will present Auston with a certicate of his re cord catch for display. State record sh must be legally caught in Flor ida, identied to species by a shery biologist, and weighed on a certied scale. Auston said he was especially grateful to the FWC for its efforts to get the sh certied. Anglers can also par ticipate in the Big Catch angler recognition pro gram. Anyone who catch es a sh above the mini mum qualifying weight for that species can submit a Big Catch application. In formation about the State Record and Big Catch programs us available on the FWC website at www. myfwc.com. Flathead catsh are not native to the east ern United States. In the 1970s, they made their way to one southeastern state after another. First identied in the Apala chicola River in 1982, they are now found in every Panhandle river, from the Ochlockonee River west to the Florida-Alabama line. They are signicant predators and should be harvested when caught. There are no bag or size limits on atheads in Flor ida, and they are good for eating. In Midwestern waters, atheads are native. The world record is a 123pound monster caught in Kansas in 1998, according to the International Game Fish Association. Fish eries biologists expect atheads may eventually grow close to that size in Florida waters.

By Brian Hughes brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Some say whenever there is a batch of old buildings, theres bound to be a few hauntings as well. So dont be surprised to nd some ghosts and ghouls among the crowd that will descend on Crestviews historic Main Street this afternoon for the citys 22nd annual Fall Festival. But dont worry: any paranormal sightings are really just kids vying for a prize in the childrens Halloween costume contest, and perhaps also some big kids getting into the spirit pun intended of the holiday. Co-sponsored by the Main Street Crestview Association and the city, the popular family-friendly event runs from 3 8 p.m. this evening. Enjoy music, food, games for the whole family, and trick-or-treating for the kids, Main Street Crestview Association manager Ryan Arvay said in a press release.

Rafe ticket sales benet the Main Street program. Admission is free. For more information, visit www.mainstreetcrestview. org. By Paula Kelley paulak@crestviewbulletin.com Crestview residents can expect zombies and superheroes; fairies and princesses to ring doorbells Monday, Oct. 31, as trick-ortreat hours have been set for 6 8 p.m. Although Halloween is a time for dress-up, fun and candy, city of Crestview police and the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Ofce stress the importance of safety that night. Crestview Police Department spokesperson Lt. Andrew Schneider and sheriffs spokesperson Michelle Nicholson offered tips to make the night fun and safe Plan or purchase costumes that do not restrict the childs vision or movement. Make sure masks or eye holes provide proper vision. Long and owing costumes can create fall or trip hazards for the child. Do not include high heel shoes or long dangling pieces of costume that your child could trip over. If they are carrying a prop such as a scythe or sword, make sure they are made out of exible plastic, or bendable foam that will collapse if fallen upon. Treat bags or buckets should be easily managed by the child and if possible marked with reective tape so that they are easily seen on the roadway. Children should always go trick or treating accompanied by a responsible adult. If you have a group of kids going, the parents should choose an older child to supervise at all times. Plan your route, and make it safe! Best trick-or-treat outings are in a neighborhood where porch lights are on. Where it is possible, park your car and walk from one door to another. Children are excited and may dart out behind cars or into roadways. Where available, use sidewalks and remind children to not walk in owerbeds and across lawns. Not everyone participates in Halloween, so if a house is dark and undecorated ask your child to bypass it. Make sure and stick to the curfew times and stick to subdivisions and areas with a lot of homes so your kids can get in as much trick or treating as possible in a few hours time. Tell your children not to cut through back alleys and elds. Make sure they know to stay in populated, well-lit areas. Explain to them why it can be dangerous for kids not to do this. Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by you in a bright light. Food allergies can also be monitored by not allowing the child to eat treats until you arrive in your home. Unwrapped goodies should not be consumed for safetys sake. Instruct your child to never go into the home of a stranger or get into a car with a stranger. Explain why this is not a good idea and what to do if someone approaches them and tries to talk to them. Make sure you and your child carry a ashlight (with fresh batteries), or glow sticks. Reective tape on their costume will also make them more visible to cars. Pets are often confused by the number of trick-ortreaters and their array of costumes. Make sure that your pet is away from the doorway or secured away from small children. Remind children to be courteous and say thank you. Adult partygoers should appoint a designated driver for the evening and all drivers should use extreme caution and slow down. Suspicious or criminal activities should be reported to local law enforcement. Happy, safe Halloween!

Crestview News Bulletin | A9 Saturday, October 29, 2011 6513154 Weve all heard that desperate times call for desperate measures, and alls fair in love and war. Theres no question that these are desperate times for those who own overnanced real estate. Since many of us are, may we ignore the traditional rules of the repayment of debt, and be insulted when banks and mortgage companies come calling to collect? Does the answer change when the overnancing happened all over America primarily because Wall Street packagers needed inventory, and both paid and were paid outsized bonuses to approve substandard lending? Does the answer change when the mortgage company refuses to work something out? Its truly hard to have patience with the national mortgagees who led the way into these experimental forests that even they didnt understand. Yet we all know that if mortgages cant be collected they will never be made. Every one of us is affected in his lifestyle by the belief that mortgages will be repaid according to their terms. Realtors, many lawyers, and most others need not come to the ofce if mortgage companies quit making loans. Last week I got a call from a lawyer from out of this area who said he represented an outof-town broker. The lawyer offered to pay me to talk to a local person he proposed to be my client, for the purpose of talking the person into signing a deed for the lawyer. The idea was that the owner, who lived here, might as well sign a deed and send it, for nothing, so the lawyer could deal with the mortgage company to attempt a short sale. Obviously, the lawyer and his client were working together to attempt to get a deal on the foreclosure of a beachfront property. The assurance offered to the owner of the property was that only the mortgage company would get hurt in the deal. I have said in these articles that without knowing the circumstances we cant judge the decision when an owner quits making mortgage payments. But I have seen lawyers say, and even advertise, that they can le an answer to a foreclosure suit, even a bad answer, and the mortgage company will be too disorganized to nish the suit in months or years. In the meantime, they advertise, the owner can stay in the house, making no payments. The difculty with being too critical of the above advice is that its absolutely true. Yet traditional legal ethics require a lawyer not to make allegations in legal pleadings that he knows not to be supported by law or fact. We lawyers have to give good legal advice to our clients. Thats what they pay us for. Part of that advice is that we can probably stall mortgage foreclosures, and maybe for a long time. But we cant do that forever, and we shouldnt if we could. While we litigate, our duty is to work out modications, short sales, or whatever works in a fair way. But we do not owe stalling foreclosures just because we can, or because we can get paid to do it. I have seen more than one person owning multiple properties on the rental market who just quit making payments and continued to collect rents. The purpose is not to get the mortgagees attention to accommodate a modication or short sale, but to allow the owner to squirrel away money until the mortgage company gets its act together, at which time the mortgagor plans to be many thousands of dollars richer by gaming the system. I know that in parts of the country owners are coming to the conclusion that its okay for a foreclosed owner to take the plumbing and electrical xtures. So that there is no mistake, removal of any part of the house upon leaving is garden variety theft, and should be prosecuted. To fail to maintain the house until the owner no longer occupies it violates the terms of every mortgage and is unfair to the neighbors. Im not entitled, or smart enough, to make the rules. But if an owner must quit making mortgage payments, for instance, I want him to put the money aside to help eventually work out the mortgage, or to buy a new house. Lets dont create a culture in which our clients expect to live free, or to borrow money with no expectation of repayment. Those would be bad lessons for our profession, and bad for the client. If their budget is stretched because they lost a job, or because the terms of the mortgage ballooned unconscionably, a lawyer should do what he can to change the mortgage. But if the mortgage is merely difcult because of an unsustainable lifestyle, we shouldnt just change the mortgage, the owner must change the lifestyle. Realtors and lawyers are probably best positioned to raise our clients expectations of themselves. No one would respect or tolerate the neighbor who habitually eats (or drinks) everything in sight, just because he can. Nor should we encourage conduct in real estate that follows no rules of ethics, just because we can. Pretend your mother is watching. Mike Chesser is a lawyer with Chesser & Barr in Shalimar.

Crestview wins opener in 4 sets By Randy Dickson randyd@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW An upstart Crestview volleyball team punched its ticket to the semi nals of the District 2-6A volleyball tournament on Monday with a four-set win over Fort Walton Beach. The Bulldogs won by scores of 25-21, 25-18, 13-25, 25-13. Im really happy because we came together as a team and stayed intense and just played intense and played all out, CHS player Hanna Hamilton said. We just have to stay focused and keep our serves in if we want to win. The teams battled back and forth in a rst set that was just as close as the 25-21 score indicated. The biggest lead either team generated was ve points when a Haleigh Hollinhead block put Crestview up 21-16. But the Vikings, who nished the season with an 8-12 record, came battling back. An unforced error by the Bulldogs and an ace by Rachel Dehlinger of the Vikings pulled Fort Walton Beach back to within three points, but the teams traded points the rest of the set and Crestview held on for the win. The second set was tied at 9-9 when the Bulldogs went on a 6-1 run to take control. Michelle Henderson had a steady hand in serve during the run that was powered by big hits from Hollinhead and Molly Kitchen. The Vikings did battle back and pulled to within a point at 15-14 on a Jennifer Bazylak kill, but a Fort Walton Beach service error gave Crestview (9-11) a point and the serve, and the Bulldogs steadily pulled away to take the set. With her team trailing 2-0, Katrina Lathi rallied the Vikings in the third set. Lathi had a pair of aces and a couple of kills in the set as Fort Walton Beach extended its season for one more set. The Vikings also got some help from the Bulldogs as 16 unforced Crestview errors ended up as Fort Walton Beach points. The Bulldogs fell behind 3-0 in the early stages of the fourth set before scoring on a Viking error. With Sara Hamilton serving, the Bulldogs scored seven straight points, ve coming on Sara Hamilton aces. After that the Vikings never got closer than 9-7 as Crestview pulled away with the win. First-year Bulldog coach Kathy Combest was pleased with the way her team played. Did you see how many times we picked up what they hit? she asked. Thats been our key, our defense. I knew we could be decent offensively, but our defense had to be better so weve really been working on that, and they did an outstanding job. Sara Hamilton said the win was a matter of the Bulldogs believing in what theyve been coached to do. I feel like we did well and we were on top of things and we knew what we were doing, she said. Sara Hamilton had eight aces, nine kills and a dig. Jasmine Middleton led Crestview with 10 kills and seven blocks. Hollinhead had seven kills and seven blocks. Hanna Hamilton had 18 digs. Molly Woodward dished out 19 assists, and Kitchen had 18 assists to go along with six kills, four blocks, two digs and two aces. By Randy Dickson randyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER In what has become a rite of fall, the Baker volleyball team advanced to the District 1-1A nals Tuesday with a straight set win over Northview in the tournament semi nals. The set scores were 25-11, 25-10, 28-26. The Gators (17-3) defeated Jay Thursday for their ninth consecutive district championship, winning in straight sets by scores of 25-16, 25-23, 27-25.The Royals (11-8) beat Central in three sets 25-23, 25-20, 25-15. Bakers win also put the Gators in the playoffs for the 19th straight time. Now in her second year as the Gator coach, Tomikko Parks was a Baker player on the rst playoff team. She said each appearance is special. It doesnt get old because this is a different team than we had last year, she said. Its a different group of girls. Baker wasted no time in jumping to a quick lead in the rst set. With Alex Roy in serve, Baker ran off ve quick points. Northview did close to within a point at 5-4, but the Gators went on a 6-0 run, increasing their lead to 11-4 as they took control of the set. When Laurie Steele, Katie Wickery or Taylor Morgan werent powering down kills for the Gators, the Chiefs were helping Baker by giving away points on unforced errors as the Gators coasted to a quick 1-0 lead in the match. It was more of the same in the second set. Baker got off to a quick start and started to pull away early. A kill by Wickery put the Gators up 12-7. Jordan Linzy then took over in serve for Baker as the Gators scored seven straight points on unforced Northview errors to put the set out of reach. Trailing 4-1 in the third set, the Chiefs (6-10) came to life, scoring three unanswered points to tie the set at 4-4. A kill by Steele put Baker back in front 5-4, but Northview went on an 11-2 run to seemingly take control of the set with a 15-7 lead. Thats when the champion came out in the Baker players. Rather than giving up and moving on to a fourth set, Baker slowly rallied, chipping away at the Northview lead. The Gators were helped by the sloppy play of Northview, but they also came up with big hits at key times. A kill by Steele pulled Baker to within two, with the score at 17-15. Leading 25-24, the Chiefs were on the verge of taking the set when Haley Wagner slammed home her only kill of the match to tie things at 25-25. The teams traded miscues, but Baker made fewer mistakes at the end and pulled out the set. Steele led the Gator attack with 12 kills, four blocks and one ace. Wickery had ve kills, six assists, three digs and two aces. Morgan added kills, six digs, eight assists and two aces. We came out and we played hard at the beginning, Parks said. We were a little bit nervous, but we played hard at the beginning, and it kind of carried over. And at the end we fought, and that was kind of important for us to ght and know that we can pull games out.

Bulldogs win 1, lose in semis Gators down Chiefs in District 1-1A semi nals CHS falls in semi nals By Pat Flynn Florida Freedom Newspapers CRESTVIEW District 2-6A powers Niceville and Mosley both opened their respective postseasons with dominating performances in district semi nals Tuesday night at Crestview. Niceville (13-4) cruised in straight sets over hosting Crestview (9-12), taking the match 25-13, 25-10, 25-13. The Eagles got tremendous play from seniors Monica Johnson, Shelby Russell and Hannah Noon, all veterans of last years team that made it to the state semi nals. Russell led the way statistically for Niceville, nishing with 16 digs, nine kills and ve aces. Johnson showed impressive versatility, nishing with 13 kills. She mixed her power and control nicely, locating balls between Bulldog defenders. This was the game that mattered all year. All the games before didnt matter, Niceville coach Jill Benson said. This game mattered to get us to where we want to go. The goal was to win rstround districts and move forward game by game after that. Niceville dominated the rst two sets, taking advantage of each of Crestviews miscues and picking apart their defense by simply tipping balls between defenders. The third set was the Bulldogs most promising, and they jumped out to a 5-0 lead behind some impressive serving from Sarah Hamilton. But the Eagles answered quickly, ripping off ve points of their own with Russell in service. The teams battled back and forth before Niceville pulled away, outscoring Crestview 15-3 to end the match, and the Bulldogs season. In the early game, Mosley rolled over Choctawhatchee in three games, winning 2512, 25-12, 25-16.

By Audrey Hamm Crestview High School Crestview High School has been booming with new kids! Parents of new senior students wonder if their child will transition to a new school well, let alone whether the school their child is attending has an environment conducive for success. The good news is that Crestview High School does just this. This is especially so for those new to the campus. The Guidance department of Crestview High School is the major engine for the facilitation of credit transfer; that is, making sure that all the credits from students past high schools come over to Crestview High Schools system and then guring out what classes new seniors need to take or dont need to take for graduation. Fresh from Pittsburgh, Eduardo Meneses said, When I was with my guidance counselor, she made sure that all my credits from Pennsylvania transferred. It only took a few minutes to gure out what classes I needed to take this year. It was quick, convenient and very helpful. As many of the students at Crestview can attest, the courses here are rigorous.

We took a gamble that our north county kids would embrace the opportunity to share their views with our readership and man, did we get a winning hand. Not being a gambler, Im not quite sure if my metaphor is correct. So, sufce to say, our middle and high school students have a lot on their minds and didnt hesitate to share their perceptions on various aspects of education in northern Okaloosa County. Youll read about the familylike atmosphere inherent in our unique K-12 schools. Youll nd what our kids are doing to make their many new classmates feel welcome and at home. One young man shared an amazingly heartfelt essay on preparing for his football teams biggest game. Giving it even greater impact is the knowledge that an arm injury meant he couldnt be out on the eld with his teammates. Displaying wisdom and maturity far beyond their tender years, two young women tackled an issue that touches on womens health, family devotion and freedom of speech concerns.

I was just cruising along when I went to Meridian, senior Hannah Heiser said of her old Mississippi high school, but now schools intense. The classes here really werent what I expected at all. Theyre tough! And I guess Im better for it, though. All the more ready Ill be for the world after I graduate. On top of the courses they take at school, students have to pass the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, or FCAT, in order to graduate from Crestview. Thats why this month the school has set aside an entire week for the purpose of FCAT testing for those new students, including the seniors. Im glad to be taking the FCAT, said Brian Alvaranga, a senior who moved from Fayetteville, N.C. Theres nothing I want more than to graduate. Ill do whatever it takes. Even if it means hell take a test he never prepared for like those students native to Crestview could. But he, like the majority of the new students who are taking the FCAT this month, knows its for the best. They need to test what I know, no matter where Ive been to school before Crestview, Brian said. Whats more is that the spirit of Crestview has already rubbed off on new student seniors. Justice Kessinger might miss his home in North Carolina, but he said, My old high school had nothing like Crestviews Dog Pound. I love the adrenaline rush I get when Im in the Dog Pound with new friends all cheering for the team. I wish other schools had spirit like Crestview does. Students-to-Students, or S2S, is a group of stu dents who help get new kids situated and help them feel comfortable at Baker School. They are making a video to show to the new students who come here. This year alone we have 45-50 new students. Some other students are working on getting the new middle school students together one day during lunch and playing games with them and making them feel more welcome. Some of the students also go into various class rooms throughout the school and mentor the el ementary children. They read to them and help them with their class work. The leadership stu dents are a big asset to my class and give additional support, Mrs. Michelle Nixon said. The students also clean the grounds to help out the janitors. There are very few of them, so the stu dents decided to help them out by picking up trash and cleaning the front win dows. Being a clean school gives students pride to say they go to school here, Ashley Black said. All in all, leadership class gives students a chance to help others. Helping others gives me a feeling of accomplish ment and respect, Mor gan Griftts reports. Being in leadership makes me feel important and like I am doing some thing good for the school, Allie Dupree said. Who knows what lead ership will come up with next, so keep an eye out for them. Farm, the setting in the novel. At SRMS, we will always remember, never forget, 9/11. We held a special ceremony remembering that horrible day. Sept. 11, 2001, its our past, present, and will forever affect our future, stated Principal Paul Whiddon to the entire student body, honored guests from the U.S. Army, USAF, Crestview Fire Department, Crestview Police Department, the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Ofce, CHS JROTC, and the Crestview Exchange Club. The Exchange Club donated a new American ag to the school. The Mustang Band played the Star Spangled Banner, the chorus sang God Bless America, and the STARZ Dance Team gave the audience chills and goose bumps as they performed a patriotic dance number that was an encore of their performance the night before on the SRMS football eld. CeAnna Kings stepfather, dressed in his military uniform, presented the U.S. ag to the pyramid of STARZ dancers at the nale of their routine, and the audience cheered. Mr. Whiddon also recognized those in the student body who have family members serving in the military, as a reghter or a law enforcement ofcer. Many hands went up, and Mr. Whiddon let them know how much we are there to support them and appreciate them.

By Jaclyn Tipton, Anna Scott & Ryan Frazier Baker School In every school, there are always parents who cannot be satised under any circumstances less than perfect. They drastically worry for their child. Did you turn that history paper in? Why do you have a C in math? or Is that bully bothering you again? But a large fraction said they fret about their child being mixed with all grade levels from kindergarten through 12th grade, from bus rides to meeting in the halls. Most schools are separated in small sections (elementary, middle and high) to avert this worry. Baker School, however, is quite the opposite. It is very interesting [to be at a K-12 school like Baker], said Baker student Mary Oglesby, 8, from her creative writing class, because you get to interact with people of all grade levels, and not just people of your own age. Baker is an all-grade school, meaning that elementary students may see the senior class president walking the halls to class every day, or the middle school chorus setting up for the nights performance. It is intriguing to observe all the variations of ages working and cooperating together in one place to make one big family. Baker is a great school, said M.E. Cates, a seventh grade leadership student. It is a good thing to have (high school students) so we can follow what they do. Being in such a school as Baker, one could have the opportunity to gain social expertise one could use in the outside world. Just recently, high school students could be seen out in the picnic area helping second graders with subtraction. Their little brows frowned in frustration as the tutors explained how to carry numbers. It will warm any heart to see the kindness of each working together, aiding others needs. Seeing the difference between our school and others, attending an all-grade school grants children a social benet to interact with variations of ages and knowledge. To others, it might seem like a difcult idea to grasp, but most of the Baker family expressed the same sentiment: We like it this way!NORTH O KALOOSA S TUDE N T GAZETTE From left, Baker student Brianna Rolin, 10, assists Alex Butler, 5, with her math. Many older students enjoy aiding elementary students. A big family The advantages of a K-12 school By Megan Dietz & Tiffany Berkley Davidson Middle School Mrs. Keitha Bledsoe, the chorus teacher at Davidson Middle School, retired on Sept. 30. After 14 years at Davidson, it was hard for her to say goodbye. She had been with the school from the start, and had a lot to do with building up the schools reputation. Starting a program in a brand new school is no easy task, but Mrs. Bledsoe took up the challenge of becoming Davidsons chorus instructor and succeeded. One cannot overlook the importance of music in our society. Music has an influence on how people act and how they feel. It recounts the story of past, present and future generations. Mrs. Bledsoes accomplishments at Davidson Middle School have been numerous. Some might say that being a chorus teacher is Mrs. Keitha Bledsoe retired as Davidson Middle Schools chorus teacher after 14 years at the school.

Le t us W e W e b l easy, but we beg to differ. A special relationship has to develop between a chorus professor and his or her students. Singing is not only reading notes on a page, but also expressing feelings and emotions, which will help communicate the song to an audience. Only the best teachers can develop such a relationship. Mrs. Bledsoe is that teacher. She is diligent, yet fun. Although, miss a note, and you can make sure that shell make you stop and go over it again. The students must also know how to sight-read and have the ability to perform with little, if any, practice. Mrs. Bledsoe thoroughly trains her pupils to read and sing notes, allowing them only 10 seconds to look at the music she presents. This is only one example of her dynamic and in-depth teaching methods. There will still be a Bledsoe in the chorus room, however. Mrs. Bledsoes husband, Mr. Greg Bledsoe, moved over from Walker Elementary School to be the new Davidson chorus teacher. Combined, Mr. and Mrs. Bledsoes years of teaching span a period of more than 70 years. Though she may be retiring, Mrs. Bledsoes work still lives on through those who graduated from DMS and have moved on to high school. Mr. Kevin Lusk, the chorus teacher at Crestview High School, says his program would not be the success it is without the trained students he receives from DMS. Mrs. Bledsoe will still be close to us. She still helps Mr. Bledsoe as he finishes his last year as a chorus teacher. No matter what, Mrs. Bledsoe will still love your guts. The DMS chorus is getting ready to have a cookie dough fundraiser. Find a chorus student and help support the chorus department by buying cookie dough. She is diligent, yet fun.

TEACHER from page 4 By Emily Taylor Baker School Several years ago Baker School purchased nearly 28 acres of land next to the school. The lands original purpose was for the school to expand and build new buildings and classes, due to its increasing number of students. However, until the land is used to expand the school, it will serve as a tness area for ath letes and JROTC, and it will also be used as a na ture trail for interested students. It will utilize the exploration of our nat ural environment and in spire learning among the students of Baker School. Currently, the schools main focus concerning the land is creating the nature trails. JROTC has already completed one of the most tedious jobs. Using a GPS, they struggled through the thick foliage and marked the desired locations of the trails. When the trails were marked, the state Divi sion of Forestry and the Northwest Florida Water Management District, with whom the school had formed an agreement, cut and cleared much of the ora to create the trails. Presently, the school and some helpful vol unteers are rening the trails, using methods such as chipping, cutting and clearing the thick under growth, to make the na ture trails safer and easier for use. In the future, the na ture trails will be com pleted and the tness area will be open for JROTC and athletes. Cross coun try runners will be able to practice on the trails once they are safe. Elementary students will be able to go on eld trips to the Baker trails. Students studying AP en vironmental science will be able to use the trails to explore insects and plants for hands-on experiences. High school students could even host the eld trips for the elementary students and give them tours of the nature trails. Mr. Tom Shipp, the principal of Baker School, is also hoping to one day establish an amphitheater on the property for stu dents. Leadership, JROTC and the AP environmental science class will shortly begin working on the Bak er trails.

By Jessica Fickett & Taylor Harrison Laurel Hill School The latest controversy in high schools today is the ever popular booby bracelets. These bracelets are sold by a nonprot organization to promote breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States and also one of the leading causes of death. More than 30,000 women are estimated to have died in 2010 alone from breast cancer. The students who wear the bracelets do so to show support for breast cancer patients many have loved ones who did or are now going through this horrible disease. But people have said that this is an improper way to represent the message, and that the slogans are inappropriate. In many of our local schools, teachers are taking these bracelets away from students because they are classed as inappropriate. Some schools are even suspending students for willful disobedience because they will not take the bracelets off. Some school administrators believe that these bracelets cause distractions in schools and encourage male students to harass female students. The schools are even passing rules that do not allow the wearing of the bracelets in their dress code. The wearing of these bracelets is a perfect example of the rst amendment, which guarantees the right to freedom of speech to the populace. Some students who wear the bracelets do so for a noble cause. They put the bracelets on to show their support for the people in their community who have dealt with the cancer either directly or indirectly. We will wear our booby bracelets to support the women of our community. At our school we had a students mom, one of our teachers, as well as one of our students, ght and survive cancer. There are other people in our school and the community who have faced or are facing this disease as well. One student commented on the matter, I dont think they should take the bracelets away, because it is bringing awareness for breast cancer. As long as the student wears them for the right reason, then I think that it shouldnt be a problem for the people to wear them. As to the wording being a distraction or inappropriate, that is exactly what is bringing attention to the matter. Many people are aware of breast cancer and they see the usual signs, wording, and ribbons and go, Oh yeah, breast cancer. But it is the new wording that is drawing attention and making people stop to realize what this whole issue is actually about. Sure there will be those who choose not to take it seriously and make fun, but how many others is it making aware of the issue? How many others are now taking a more serious look into the issue? If it takes wording that catches the attention to make more people aware of the seriousness of breast cancer, and maybe even save some lives, then we believe wearing these bracelets is the right thing to do. Students really do believe in causes, especially if they have a personal investment in the cause by either personal experiences or those of loved ones. With this issue, students are making a statement. Hear their voices; dont silence them! Bracelets stir controversy Breast cancer awareness or a classroom distraction? PHOTOS S P ECIAL TO THE NORTH O KALOOSA S TUDE N T GAZETTE Laurel Hill School high school students Taylor Harrison, left, and Jessica Fickett speak up in support of breast cancer awareness bracelets.

Their hearts are dedicated to this school 100 percent. As you can probably tell, it doesnt take much to see the love and pride shown through the CHS Dog Pound. Every single one of the 200-plus students puts their heart into this club every Friday night, standing beside the band for the entire game without a glimpse of lost interest. The absolute joy they show is unbelievable, and it is there every single game. Their dedication has gone impeccable lengths. A great example is when almost all of them rode for hours on buses just to be at a game and support the football team.

This is to prove who the best middle school football team in Crestview is. Davidson felt great to win the rst game, but they will still practice as hard as they can this week. Shoal River will be sure to practice just as hard. Both teams want to start the game off with a statement: We are here to play. The young athletes that will play would give anything to win this game. They will take this game over to the high school when some of them play for the Bulldogs next year. This is all the talk around Crestview everybody is wondering who will win.

When rst presented to the council, members brainstormed ideas including a small downtown park ing lot, a skate park and a branch library. Council member Robyn Helt, who, as a real es tate agent, had been ap proached by owner Billie Carter about selling the land to the city, emerged as a strong proponent of ac quiring the property. Carter has requested $38,000 for the land, Helt said, though the property appraiser lists the value at $29,907. Helt emphasized at both recent council meetings that she would not be in volved in the transaction should the sale of Carters property to the city be con cluded and that she would not benet nancially or otherwise from the sale.

Williams, who was recently appointed state commander for the American Legion, representing more than 143,000 Legionnaires throughout Florida, had earlier passed out challenge coins, used to reward extra effort in the military, to several members of the city council who supported the Veterans Day parade. Just recently the parade was facing cancel lation when only ve entrants had registered. News reports, however, generated renewed interest in the event, and within the past two weeks, more than 30 additional businesses, clubs and organizations have registered to parade in the Saturday, Nov. 12, event. We have more participants now than weve ever seen and theyre still coming in, Williams said. This things looking up. Williams said he recently met with Mayor David Cadle, and together they devised an idea to appoint a committee just to organize the Veterans Day parade. The proposal has generated a lot of interest, Williams said. Theres a lot of citizens that want to par ticipate, he told the council at its Monday evening meeting. One of the problems that almost led to the cancellation of this years parade, Williams said, was that members of the citys Veterans Affairs Committee, which is supposed to or ganize the parade, were not attending meetings. Every time we have a meeting, Im the only one to show up, he said. Council Member Robyn Helt said the so lution, then, was disbanding the Veterans Af fairs committee.

Whats HAPPENINGBy Brian Hughesbrianh@crestviewbulletin.com Its fur versus feathers as the Crestview High School Bulldogs leadership class accepts the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots challenge to collect more toys than the Eagles will at Niceville High School. Students in Stephanie Sanders class are determined to make sure the trophy remains in Crestview after it was earned last year. The annual program collects toys for underprivileged local kids, and already the Crestview team is well on its way. Sanders said her kids have reached out to the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce to encourage local businesses to help with the drive, either by collecting toys from employees and customers or by making cash contributions. Contributors may drop off new, unopened toys at Crestview Highs lobby reception desk, give them to any leadership class student, or take them to Sanders in room 117. While cash donations or checks are also welcome, new rules ask that no stuffed toys be donated. To help encourage individual classes to donate, leadership students said some faculty members are offering to host pizza and doughnut parties or other incentives for kids who bring toys to their classes. The leadership class is also working to set up a donations acceptance table at Winn-Dixie soon. The deadline to donate toys or money is Friday, Nov. 4. Niceville High students will bring their donations to Crestview for the Bulldogs vs. Eagles game that evening, during which the Marines will accept both schools donations. Hopefully the trophy will remain in Crestview, but ultimately, the winners are the kids who receive the toys.BRIAN IAN HUG G HE E S | News BulletinMembers of the Crestview High School leadership class, including (standing, left to right) Jennah White, Jessie Rubach and Amanda Eidem, and (kneeling) Aaron Jenkins and Michael Lawson show off Toys for Tots donations.

He asked the students what they want to be when they grow up. The third, fourth and fth graders eagerly raised their hands and responses included a doctor, a lawyer, and to be in the military. I ask that question dur ing every presentation in front of every group and I can tell you now that not once has anyone ever responded that they wanted to be a drug addict or an alcoholic. No one has ever said I wanna be a lazy loser, not once have I gotten that answer, Saldana said. But people do grow up to become that. It is my job and the job of people like Ofcer Fountain to help you make that decision today and reenforce your good decisions in the future. Saldana explained that cigarettes are a costly hab it. He had the kids do the math of a pack of cigarettes at $5 a pack times seven days a week and four weeks a month and 12 months a year. He talked about the more than 4,000 chemical ingredients in a cigarette, including ammonia, arsenic, methanol (rocket fuel) and microscopic particles of PVC pipe. The students are then shown a large glass jar lled with a dark syrupy substance. It equals the amount of tar that lls up a smokers lungs in one year. Oooohhs and yucks came from the students. I want to show you the truth, Saldana said as he lifted a pink, double mass into the air from a large container. These are the lungs of a non-smoker, a young athlete who was killed by a drunk driver. He was an organ donor and his healthy lungs are used in programs like this one so that we can show you what the reality of the lungs used in the life of a non-smoker versus a smoker look like. He opened a second container and held a greyblack charred-looking, smaller, porous version of the same organ. These lungs were donated by the family members of a person who smoked four packs of ciga rettes a day for over 25 years, he said. Yucks and eewws lled the room. He talked about health, and about decision making in choosing to begin smok ing or drinking. He held up representative glasses of beer, wine and a shot of whisky as the discussion turned to alcoholism. Our research says that cigarettes and beer often are a gateway that leads to more for young people. Leads them into illegal drug use and excessive use of alcohol, Saldana said. Which one do you think about? That evening Saldana took his drug demand reduction program to Crestviews Warriors Hall, where his exhibit joined informational displays and educa tional materials sponsored by the Crestview Police Departments Criminal In vestigations, Street Crimes Unit and Community Polic ing divisions. Again, reaction to the diseased lungs and jar full of a smokers annual tar production drew the hopedfor reaction from young and old attendees. Thats disgusting! Saldanas son, Mark, 8, ex claimed when viewing his dads display with his sister Tani, 14. The kids really get a visual of what smoking and doing drugs can do to a healthy person, CPD In vestigator Marsha Bennett said. That can help them make smart decisions when they are tempted to try it. Why would people use that stuff? Destiny Curry, 8, asked incredulously as she and her dad Mike examined a narcotics display and read about the adverse effects of drug abuse, which include death. My passion is to save lives, Tony Saldana said to the Warriors Hall as sembly. We can inuence our children to do the right thing. We have to preach and teach. Saldana will have his dis play at this evenings Fall Festival on Main Street for those who missed his pre sentations at Baker School and Warriors Hall. support of our position. Council Member Phillip Berezo counseled caution and suggested contacting Veterans Af fairs Committee members before taking any ac tion, but Helt moved to proceed with disbanding the committee. Seconded by Council Member Ben Iannucci, the motion passed 3-2, with Berezo and Council President Charles Baugh Jr. voting no. Mr. Williams, you now have nothing to do, Cadle said, then telling the council, We have no one to head up the Veterans Day parade. You just dismissed him. You acted so quickly you didnt think this through. After the realization of what they had just done registered, Helt said she had been consid ering suggesting city staff, perhaps from the Ad ministrative Services department, help Williams organize the parade. Lets appoint them, Cadle said. Dont leave him hanging out there. We need to do something to appoint Mr. Wil liams to head the parade committee, Baugh acknowledged. I will see this one through, Williams prom ised. Helt then moved to appoint Williams to contin ue to organize the parade and the motion passed unanimously. This is a wonderful council, lots of passion, lots of energy. Lets not legislate through emo tion, Cadle cautioned after the vote.

Hall, Helt said. After speaking with the citys grant consultant, Helt determined that the land could be acquired and a parking lot constructed us ing a community block devel opment grant (CBDG) that will fund a planned down town parking lot. The CBDG money, however, could only be used for a parking lot. Any other use would require a different funding source. We do have another op tion available to us. One of the uses of CRA (Communi ty Redevelopment Agency) funds is to acquire proper ties for various reasons, Crestview Administrative Services Director Wing said, if the city can demonstrate there is a public purpose. That seems to be a very small parcel, Mayor David Cadle said. That seems to be a lot of money for 26 park ing spaces. Council member Ben Iannucci said, Anytime we acquire anything off the tax roll, thats a loss. Helt countered that a parking lot could be a rev enue stream for the city if it had parking meters on it or if spaces were leased to monthly clients, such as stu dents or staff of the Florida A&M University pharmacy school being developed less than two blocks away in the historic Alatex Building. The revenue could be double the ad valorem tax es, Helt said. If its acquired under a CBDG grant, we couldnt charge for its use, Wing cautioned. Fearing that another in terested purchaser might make a bid on the land before the city could act, Helt made a motion to purchase the property but only at its appraised value, reiterating, I think we could use the property as a revenue source. I would not like to see the bulk of the CBDG grant escape us, Baugh agreed, noting that any grant funds left over after the original parking lot is constructed would have to be returned. The rst step in deter mining what we want to do with it is, you gotta own it, Helt said. Her motion passed 3-2 with Baugh and council member Tim Grandberry voting nay. BRIAN HUGHES | News BulletinSeen from the backyard, this lot under consideration for purchase by the city is located across Woodruff Avenue from the Crestview Fire Departments main station. The rst step in determining what we want to do with it is, you gotta own it. Robyn Helt Council member PARKING from page A1

In my previous article I began talking about how our crazy-busy lifestyle has gotten us to be in a reactive mode of living rather than proactive. We tend to let circumstances dictate how we use our time and what we focus on. Thats a bit backwards. Its like we are twisting the proper order of things. Instead of Ready, aim, re! we live by Fire! ready, aim Thats messed up. This kind of lifestyle causes us to rush around like chickens with our heads cut off. It causes us to believe we are proving our worth because we are rushing around looking busy all the time. This reminds me of a comical phrase I heard someone say some years ago, Jesus is coming back! Look busy! Wrong. It will do us no good to look busy. More importantly, if we are going to be busy, let it be a sacred busy-ness. By that, I mean doing the work of our Lord, because when we do the work of our Lord, our attention is focused on Him. And we then can remember how we are dependent on God for everything. Jesus talks about the birds of the air and how God feeds them and how we are more important than they. And since we are more important than they, God will take more care of us. In a very real way, Jesus gently reminds us that we are dependent on God for everything. It is God who has given us life. And because God has given us life, he will provide for our needs. But for some this is a hard lesson to hear. We have been taught to rely on ourselves for everything in life. We are supposed to be in control of our circumstances, our happiness, our schedules everything. The way to give up the need for control is to adopt a mindset which helps you remember that if you think your life is okay now, with God in control, you will live an even better life. When you give up your worry, your need to be busy, your need to control, you will be able to nd God, enjoy him and enjoy the life he has for you. When you nd yourself worrying about things or if you are feeling overburdened, dont hesitate to pray something like, God, this is bigger than I am. I cannot do it alone. Give me the wisdom to understand what it is you want me to do. Help me to trust you and not worry. When you give it over to God, you can be assured everything will be all right. God will guide you as you continue to work on what is before you. It is important to remember that God is found not only in the large and miraculous aspects of life, but more often in the plain, the simple and the ordinary aspects of life. In fact, God is found more often in the plain, simple and ordinary when we have eyes to see. The work each of us does, not just work done in or for a church, is sacred. Whether you work around the house and yard, or are a secretary, a lawyer, a legislator, a homemaker, a taxi driver, a banker, a teacher, a parent, a grandparent whatever you do, it is the work of God. When you begin to see what you do in everyday life as something sacred, you will begin to nd God in the ordinary things of every day. Jesus gives an invitation to consider: Consider the lilies ... To consider literally means to meditate upon. Considering is the gift of being quiet, of putting some distance between you and those things that weigh you down. It is a time to stop and catch your breath, to intentionally focus on the presence of God, to replenish your soul. This is to get ready. Considering is a time to focus on our creator and what God would have you do, to discern Gods will, and nd direction for what lies ahead. This is to take aim. And when your time of considering is over, you go and do as you have discerned, you put into action what has been considered this is to ready, aim, re the proper order in which things are supposed to be done. Gods presence is found in the ordinary fabric of life as well as the extraordinary and spectacular events in life. Be sure to place the activities of your life in proper perspective. Get ready. Take aim. And then do as God leads. Ready, aim, re! The Rev.

The Crestview Police Department and Okaloosa County Sheriffs Ofce, in conjunction with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, has announced several locations where people can deposit medications. From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. today, the Crestview Public Library and the Crestview Walmart will have drop-off boxes set up with law enforcement ofcers at each. Prescription drug abuse is a growing problem throughout the country, and disposing of medications no longer in use in your household makes the possibilities of the drugs falling into the wrong hands less of a concern, ofcials said. Medications can be placed in the collection boxes anonymously without follow-up from law enforcement. However, intravenous medication injection systems, syringes and needles cannot be accepted. Illegal drugs, such as marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, crack or heroin, may also be disposed of anonymously during the event. sSTUDEnNTsS WRITE nNEWsSPAPERBRIA RIA N HUHU GHE HE S | News Bulletin Crestview Police Lt.

Pill Take-Back Initiative todayMilton resident Eric Auston Jr. now holds the distinction of having landed the largest athead catsh ever caught with a rod and reel in Florida waters. Auston, 33, was shing with his good friend Brandy Wallace Oct. 9 at 2:30 a.m. in the Yellow River when he caught a athead catsh weighing 55.05 pounds. He used a rod and reel with 25-pound-test line and a small bluegill as bait. His sh was substantially larger than the existing Florida record athead a sh that weighed 49.39 pounds, caught in the Apalachicola River in 2004. Auston said he shes for atheads only a few times each year. His biggest athead prior to last weekend weighed 42 pounds, but that sh was caught on a bush hook. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) maintains records for most species of freshwater sh. The FWC will present Auston with a certicate of his record catch for display. State record sh must be legally caught in Florida, identied to species by a shery biologist, and weighed on a certied scale. Auston said he was especially grateful to the FWC for its efforts to get the sh certied. Anglers can also participate in the Big Catch angler recognition program. Anyone who catches a sh above the minimum qualifying weight for that species can submit a Big Catch application. Information about the State Record and Big Catch programs us available on the FWC website at www. myfwc.com. Flathead catsh are not native to the eastern United States. In the 1970s, they made their way to one southeastern state after another. First identied in the Apalachicola River in 1982, they are now found in every Panhandle river, from the Ochlockonee River west to the Florida-Alabama line. They are signicant predators and should be harvested when caught. There are no bag or size limits on atheads in Florida, and they are good for eating. In Midwestern waters, atheads are native. The world record is a 123pound monster caught in Kansas in 1998, according to the International Game Fish Association. Fisheries biologists expect atheads may eventually grow close to that size in Florida waters.Milton angler lands record atheadPP HOTO COURTEs S Y OF FWCFWCMilton resident Eric Auston Jr. holds a record athead catsh he caught earlier this month while shing in Yellow River.

By Brian Hughesbrianh@crestviewbulletin.com Some say whenever there is a batch of old buildings, theres bound to be a few hauntings as well. So dont be surprised to nd some ghosts and ghouls among the crowd that will descend on Crestviews historic Main Street this afternoon for the citys 22nd annual Fall Festival. But dont worry: any paranormal sightings are really just kids vying for a prize in the childrens Halloween costume contest, and perhaps also some big kids getting into the spirit pun intended of the holiday. Co-sponsored by the Main Street Crestview Association and the city, the popular family-friendly event runs from 3 8 p.m. this evening. Enjoy music, food, games for the whole family, and trick-or-treating for the kids, Main Street Crestview Association manager Ryan Arvay said in a press release. A childrens costume contest will be held at 6 p.m. There will even be a special category for pets. Trophies will be awarded to the winners. Arvay said more than 80 vendors will line Main Street and families can enjoy bounce houses, a dunking booth, street magicians, gymnastics, a bean bag toss, balloon animals and other diversions. Many vendors will distribute candy to trick-or-treaters. Enjoy live entertainment by Mike the Tiger and Giggles the Clown. Bigger trick-or-treaters can ll their pumpkin with rafe tickets for a chance to take home prizes including an iPhone donated by Planet AT&T, an iPod Nano from Walmart, a four-gallon deep fryer from Crestview Wholesale, and two different gift card packages from several local businesses worth nearly $150. Rafe ticket sales benet the Main Street program. Admission is free. For more information, visit www.mainstreetcrestview. org. By Paula Kelleypaulak@crestviewbulletin.com Crestview residents can expect zombies and superheroes; fairies and princesses to ring doorbells Monday, Oct. 31, as trick-ortreat hours have been set for 6 8 p.m. Although Halloween is a time for dress-up, fun and candy, city of Crestview police and the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Ofce stress the importance of safety that night. Crestview Police Department spokesperson Lt. Andrew Schneider and sheriffs spokesperson Michelle Nicholson offered tips to make the night fun and safe Plan or purchase costumes that do not restrict the childs vision or movement. Make sure masks or eye holes provide proper vision. Long and owing costumes can create fall or trip hazards for the child. Do not include high heel shoes or long dangling pieces of costume that your child could trip over. If they are carrying a prop such as a scythe or sword, make sure they are made out of exible plastic, or bendable foam that will collapse if fallen upon. Treat bags or buckets should be easily managed by the child and if possible marked with reective tape so that they are easily seen on the roadway. Children should always go trick or treating accompanied by a responsible adult. If you have a group of kids going, the parents should choose an older child to supervise at all times. Plan your route, and make it safe! Best trick-or-treat outings are in a neighborhood where porch lights are on. Where it is possible, park your car and walk from one door to another. Children are excited and may dart out behind cars or into roadways. Where available, use sidewalks and remind children to not walk in owerbeds and across lawns. Not everyone participates in Halloween, so if a house is dark and undecorated ask your child to bypass it. Make sure and stick to the curfew times and stick to subdivisions and areas with a lot of homes so your kids can get in as much trick or treating as possible in a few hours time. Tell your children not to cut through back alleys and elds. Make sure they know to stay in populated, well-lit areas. Explain to them why it can be dangerous for kids not to do this. Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by you in a bright light. Food allergies can also be monitored by not allowing the child to eat treats until you arrive in your home. Unwrapped goodies should not be consumed for safetys sake. Instruct your child to never go into the home of a stranger or get into a car with a stranger. Explain why this is not a good idea and what to do if someone approaches them and tries to talk to them. Make sure you and your child carry a ashlight (with fresh batteries), or glow sticks. Reective tape on their costume will also make them more visible to cars. Pets are often confused by the number of trick-ortreaters and their array of costumes. Make sure that your pet is away from the doorway or secured away from small children. Remind children to be courteous and say thank you. Adult partygoers should appoint a designated driver for the evening and all drivers should use extreme caution and slow down. Suspicious or criminal activities should be reported to local law enforcement. Happy, safe Halloween!

Crestview News Bulletin | A9Saturday, October 29, 2011 6513154 Weve all heard that desperate times call for desperate measures, and alls fair in love and war. Theres no question that these are desperate times for those who own overnanced real estate. Since many of us are, may we ignore the traditional rules of the repayment of debt, and be insulted when banks and mortgage companies come calling to collect? Does the answer change when the overnancing happened all over America primarily because Wall Street packagers needed inventory, and both paid and were paid outsized bonuses to approve substandard lending? Does the answer change when the mortgage company refuses to work something out? Its truly hard to have patience with the national mortgagees who led the way into these experimental forests that even they didnt understand. Yet we all know that if mortgages cant be collected they will never be made. Every one of us is affected in his lifestyle by the belief that mortgages will be repaid according to their terms. Realtors, many lawyers, and most others need not come to the ofce if mortgage companies quit making loans. Last week I got a call from a lawyer from out of this area who said he represented an outof-town broker. The lawyer offered to pay me to talk to a local person he proposed to be my client, for the purpose of talking the person into signing a deed for the lawyer. The idea was that the owner, who lived here, might as well sign a deed and send it, for nothing, so the lawyer could deal with the mortgage company to attempt a short sale. Obviously, the lawyer and his client were working together to attempt to get a deal on the foreclosure of a beachfront property. The assurance offered to the owner of the property was that only the mortgage company would get hurt in the deal. I have said in these articles that without knowing the circumstances we cant judge the decision when an owner quits making mortgage payments. But I have seen lawyers say, and even advertise, that they can le an answer to a foreclosure suit, even a bad answer, and the mortgage company will be too disorganized to nish the suit in months or years. In the meantime, they advertise, the owner can stay in the house, making no payments. The difculty with being too critical of the above advice is that its absolutely true. Yet traditional legal ethics require a lawyer not to make allegations in legal pleadings that he knows not to be supported by law or fact. We lawyers have to give good legal advice to our clients. Thats what they pay us for. Part of that advice is that we can probably stall mortgage foreclosures, and maybe for a long time. But we cant do that forever, and we shouldnt if we could. While we litigate, our duty is to work out modications, short sales, or whatever works in a fair way. But we do not owe stalling foreclosures just because we can, or because we can get paid to do it. I have seen more than one person owning multiple properties on the rental market who just quit making payments and continued to collect rents. The purpose is not to get the mortgagees attention to accommodate a modication or short sale, but to allow the owner to squirrel away money until the mortgage company gets its act together, at which time the mortgagor plans to be many thousands of dollars richer by gaming the system. I know that in parts of the country owners are coming to the conclusion that its okay for a foreclosed owner to take the plumbing and electrical xtures. So that there is no mistake, removal of any part of the house upon leaving is garden variety theft, and should be prosecuted. To fail to maintain the house until the owner no longer occupies it violates the terms of every mortgage and is unfair to the neighbors. Im not entitled, or smart enough, to make the rules. But if an owner must quit making mortgage payments, for instance, I want him to put the money aside to help eventually work out the mortgage, or to buy a new house. Lets dont create a culture in which our clients expect to live free, or to borrow money with no expectation of repayment. Those would be bad lessons for our profession, and bad for the client. If their budget is stretched because they lost a job, or because the terms of the mortgage ballooned unconscionably, a lawyer should do what he can to change the mortgage. But if the mortgage is merely difcult because of an unsustainable lifestyle, we shouldnt just change the mortgage, the owner must change the lifestyle. Realtors and lawyers are probably best positioned to raise our clients expectations of themselves. No one would respect or tolerate the neighbor who habitually eats (or drinks) everything in sight, just because he can. Nor should we encourage conduct in real estate that follows no rules of ethics, just because we can. Pretend your mother is watching. Mike Chesser is a lawyer with Chesser & Barr in Shalimar.

Ground Zero: The place where law and fact collide MIKE CHESSERLocal PerspectiveBy Paula Kelleypaulak@crestviewbulletin.com Organizers with two major fundraising events are teaming up to produce one busy day in Crestview. The Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce will hold their fourth annual golf tournament Saturday, Nov. 5, and end the day with their second annual Grapes Gala, a wine tasting cocktail party fundraiser. The golf tournament is a best ball format on the Foxwood Country Club course. The tournament is limited to 36 teams, with several package prices available. Pretournament registration is available through the chamber ofce. Participants can also register the day of the event beginning at 8 a.m., with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Tournament fees include range balls, goodie bag, green fees, cart and balls. Lunch will also be provided after the tournament. We have great prizes for the winning ights and thanks to Lee Buick GMC the rst hole-in-one for one of the course holes will win a 2012 GMC Terrain, said Laura Mobley, who chairs the chambers golf tournament committee. And, of course, we have door prizes and award packages. Beginning at 6 p.m., the chamber will sponsor a wine gala at Crestviews CCB Community Bank. The events theme is A Taste from Around the World. The wines and the foods will make you feel as if you have traveled abroad without leaving Crestview, said Dino Sinopoli, who is chairs the wine tasting committee. CCB has offered their beautiful bank and we just think it will be a great evening for everyone. Premiering two local wines, Yellow River Vineyards will offer their Feelin Peachy and Summer Crush strawberry wines for sampling. The local wines are the rst productions of Nathan and Crystal Boyles, and will be available for purchase. The gala will also offer silent auction items from area businesses and feature airline tickets from Vision Airlines and makeovers from Hello Beautiful Salon. Food will include delicacies from the Wild Olive Restaurant, Not Just Cakes Bakery and Cafe, ARAMARK catering, Johnny OQuigleys and Christophers Uncorked Bistro. A jazz saxophonist will provide music. We are very excited about the combination of these two events, Sinopoli said. The gala began last year as a result of Mary Richards hard work at an event tent at the chamber ofce and continues to grow as an annual fundraiser, and then the golf tournament is always a day of fun for the teams. Commemorative wine glasses with the event logo have also been created for the gala. Crestview Walmart has donated a 51-inch Samsung TV and a ve-burner grill to be rafed off as part of the fundraiser.

Crestview wins opener in 4 setsBy Randy Dicksonrandyd@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW An upstart Crestview volleyball team punched its ticket to the semi nals of the District 2-6A volleyball tournament on Monday with a four-set win over Fort Walton Beach. The Bulldogs won by scores of 25-21, 25-18, 13-25, 25-13. Im really happy because we came together as a team and stayed intense and just played intense and played all out, CHS player Hanna Hamilton said. We just have to stay focused and keep our serves in if we want to win. The teams battled back and forth in a rst set that was just as close as the 25-21 score indicated. The biggest lead either team generated was ve points when a Haleigh Hollinhead block put Crestview up 21-16. But the Vikings, who nished the season with an 8-12 record, came battling back. An unforced error by the Bulldogs and an ace by Rachel Dehlinger of the Vikings pulled Fort Walton Beach back to within three points, but the teams traded points the rest of the set and Crestview held on for the win. The second set was tied at 9-9 when the Bulldogs went on a 6-1 run to take control. Michelle Henderson had a steady hand in serve during the run that was powered by big hits from Hollinhead and Molly Kitchen. The Vikings did battle back and pulled to within a point at 15-14 on a Jennifer Bazylak kill, but a Fort Walton Beach service error gave Crestview (9-11) a point and the serve, and the Bulldogs steadily pulled away to take the set. With her team trailing 2-0, Katrina Lathi rallied the Vikings in the third set. Lathi had a pair of aces and a couple of kills in the set as Fort Walton Beach extended its season for one more set. The Vikings also got some help from the Bulldogs as 16 unforced Crestview errors ended up as Fort Walton Beach points. The Bulldogs fell behind 3-0 in the early stages of the fourth set before scoring on a Viking error. With Sara Hamilton serving, the Bulldogs scored seven straight points, ve coming on Sara Hamilton aces. After that the Vikings never got closer than 9-7 as Crestview pulled away with the win. First-year Bulldog coach Kathy Combest was pleased with the way her team played. Did you see how many times we picked up what they hit? she asked. Thats been our key, our defense. I knew we could be decent offensively, but our defense had to be better so weve really been working on that, and they did an outstanding job. Sara Hamilton said the win was a matter of the Bulldogs believing in what theyve been coached to do. I feel like we did well and we were on top of things and we knew what we were doing, she said. Sara Hamilton had eight aces, nine kills and a dig. Jasmine Middleton led Crestview with 10 kills and seven blocks. Hollinhead had seven kills and seven blocks. Hanna Hamilton had 18 digs. Molly Woodward dished out 19 assists, and Kitchen had 18 assists to go along with six kills, four blocks, two digs and two aces.By Randy Dicksonrandyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER In what has become a rite of fall, the Baker volleyball team advanced to the District 1-1A nals Tuesday with a straight set win over Northview in the tournament semi nals. The set scores were 25-11, 25-10, 28-26. The Gators (17-3) defeated Jay Thursday for their ninth consecutive district championship, winning in straight sets by scores of 25-16, 25-23, 27-25.The Royals (11-8) beat Central in three sets 25-23, 25-20, 25-15. Bakers win also put the Gators in the playoffs for the 19th straight time. Now in her second year as the Gator coach, Tomikko Parks was a Baker player on the rst playoff team. She said each appearance is special. It doesnt get old because this is a different team than we had last year, she said. Its a different group of girls. Baker wasted no time in jumping to a quick lead in the rst set. With Alex Roy in serve, Baker ran off ve quick points. Northview did close to within a point at 5-4, but the Gators went on a 6-0 run, increasing their lead to 11-4 as they took control of the set. When Laurie Steele, Katie Wickery or Taylor Morgan werent powering down kills for the Gators, the Chiefs were helping Baker by giving away points on unforced errors as the Gators coasted to a quick 1-0 lead in the match. It was more of the same in the second set. Baker got off to a quick start and started to pull away early. A kill by Wickery put the Gators up 12-7. Jordan Linzy then took over in serve for Baker as the Gators scored seven straight points on unforced Northview errors to put the set out of reach. Trailing 4-1 in the third set, the Chiefs (6-10) came to life, scoring three unanswered points to tie the set at 4-4. A kill by Steele put Baker back in front 5-4, but Northview went on an 11-2 run to seemingly take control of the set with a 15-7 lead. Thats when the champion came out in the Baker players. Rather than giving up and moving on to a fourth set, Baker slowly rallied, chipping away at the Northview lead. The Gators were helped by the sloppy play of Northview, but they also came up with big hits at key times. A kill by Steele pulled Baker to within two, with the score at 17-15. Leading 25-24, the Chiefs were on the verge of taking the set when Haley Wagner slammed home her only kill of the match to tie things at 25-25. The teams traded miscues, but Baker made fewer mistakes at the end and pulled out the set. Steele led the Gator attack with 12 kills, four blocks and one ace. Wickery had ve kills, six assists, three digs and two aces. Morgan added kills, six digs, eight assists and two aces. We came out and we played hard at the beginning, Parks said. We were a little bit nervous, but we played hard at the beginning, and it kind of carried over. And at the end we fought, and that was kind of important for us to ght and know that we can pull games out.

Niceville (13-4) cruised in straight sets over hosting Crestview (9-12), taking the match 25-13, 25-10, 25-13. The Eagles got tremendous play from seniors Monica Johnson, Shelby Russell and Hannah Noon, all veterans of last years team that made it to the state semi nals. Russell led the way statistically for Niceville, nishing with 16 digs, nine kills and ve aces. Johnson showed impressive versatility, nishing with 13 kills. She mixed her power and control nicely, locating balls between Bulldog defenders. This was the game that mattered all year. All the games before didnt matter, Niceville coach Jill Benson said. This game mattered to get us to where we want to go. The goal was to win rstround districts and move forward game by game after that. Niceville dominated the rst two sets, taking advantage of each of Crestviews miscues and picking apart their defense by simply tipping balls between defenders. The third set was the Bulldogs most promising, and they jumped out to a 5-0 lead behind some impressive serving from Sarah Hamilton. But the Eagles answered quickly, ripping off ve points of their own with Russell in service. The teams battled back and forth before Niceville pulled away, outscoring Crestview 15-3 to end the match, and the Bulldogs season. In the early game, Mosley rolled over Choctawhatchee in three games, winning 2512, 25-12, 25-16.

By Audrey HammCrestview High School Crestview High School has been booming with new kids! Parents of new senior students wonder if their child will transition to a new school well, let alone whether the school their child is attending has an environment conducive for success. The good news is that Crestview High School does just this. This is especially so for those new to the campus. The Guidance department of Crestview High School is the major engine for the facilitation of credit transfer; that is, making sure that all the credits from students past high schools come over to Crestview High Schools system and then guring out what classes new seniors need to take or dont need to take for graduation. Fresh from Pittsburgh, Eduardo Meneses said, When I was with my guidance counselor, she made sure that all my credits from Pennsylvania transferred. It only took a few minutes to gure out what classes I needed to take this year. It was quick, convenient and very helpful. As many of the students at Crestview can attest, the courses here are rigorous.

We took a gamble that our north county kids would embrace the opportunity to share their views with our readership and man, did we get a winning hand. Not being a gambler, Im not quite sure if my metaphor is correct.

Youll read about the familylike atmosphere inherent in our unique K-12 schools. Youll nd what our kids are doing to make their many new classmates feel welcome and at home. One young man shared an amazingly heartfelt essay on preparing for his football teams biggest game. Giving it even greater impact is the knowledge that an arm injury meant he couldnt be out on the eld with his teammates. Displaying wisdom and maturity far beyond their tender years, two young women tackled an issue that touches on womens health, family devotion and freedom of speech concerns.

I was just cruising along when I went to Meridian, senior Hannah Heiser said of her old Mississippi high school, but now schools intense. The classes here really werent what I expected at all. Theyre tough! And I guess Im better for it, though. All the more ready Ill be for the world after I graduate. On top of the courses they take at school, students have to pass the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, or FCAT, in order to graduate from Crestview. Thats why this month the school has set aside an entire week for the purpose of FCAT testing for those new students, including the seniors. Im glad to be taking the FCAT, said Brian Alvaranga, a senior who moved from Fayetteville, N.C. Theres nothing I want more than to graduate. Ill do whatever it takes. Even if it means hell take a test he never prepared for like those students native to Crestview could. But he, like the majority of the new students who are taking the FCAT this month, knows its for the best. They need to test what I know, no matter where Ive been to school before Crestview, Brian said. Whats more is that the spirit of Crestview has already rubbed off on new student seniors. Justice Kessinger might miss his home in North Carolina, but he said, My old high school had nothing like Crestviews Dog Pound. I love the adrenaline rush I get when Im in the Dog Pound with new friends all cheering for the team. I wish other schools had spirit like Crestview does. Students-to-Students, or S2S, is a group of students who help get new kids situated and help them feel comfortable at Baker School. They are making a video to show to the new students who come here. This year alone we have 45-50 new students. Some other students are working on getting the new middle school students together one day during lunch and playing games with them and making them feel more welcome. Some of the students also go into various classrooms throughout the school and mentor the elementary children. They read to them and help them with their class work. The leadership students are a big asset to my class and give additional support, Mrs. Michelle Nixon said. The students also clean the grounds to help out the janitors. There are very few of them, so the students decided to help them out by picking up trash and cleaning the front windows. Being a clean school gives students pride to say they go to school here, Ashley Black said. All in all, leadership class gives students a chance to help others. Helping others gives me a feeling of accomplishment and respect, Morgan Griftts reports. Being in leadership makes me feel important and like I am doing something good for the school, Allie Dupree said. Who knows what leadership will come up with next, so keep an eye out for them.

Sept. 11, 2001, its our past, present, and will forever affect our future, stated Principal Paul Whiddon to the entire student body, honored guests from the U.S. Army, USAF, Crestview Fire Department, Crestview Police Department, the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Ofce, CHS JROTC, and the Crestview Exchange Club. The Exchange Club donated a new American ag to the school. The Mustang Band played the Star Spangled Banner, the chorus sang God Bless America, and the STARZ Dance Team gave the audience chills and goose bumps as they performed a patriotic dance number that was an encore of their performance the night before on the SRMS football eld. CeAnna Kings stepfather, dressed in his military uniform, presented the U.S. ag to the pyramid of STARZ dancers at the nale of their routine, and the audience cheered. Mr. Whiddon also recognized those in the student body who have family members serving in the military, as a reghter or a law enforcement ofcer.

By Jaclyn Tipton, Anna Scott & Ryan FrazierBaker School In every school, there are always parents who cannot be satised under any circumstances less than perfect. They drastically worry for their child. Did you turn that history paper in? Why do you have a C in math? or Is that bully bothering you again? But a large fraction said they fret about their child being mixed with all grade levels from kindergarten through 12th grade, from bus rides to meeting in the halls. Most schools are separated in small sections (elementary, middle and high) to avert this worry. Baker School, however, is quite the opposite. It is very interesting [to be at a K-12 school like Baker], said Baker student Mary Oglesby, 8, from her creative writing class, because you get to interact with people of all grade levels, and not just people of your own age. Baker is an all-grade school, meaning that elementary students may see the senior class president walking the halls to class every day, or the middle school chorus setting up for the nights performance. It is intriguing to observe all the variations of ages working and cooperating together in one place to make one big family. Baker is a great school, said M.E. Cates, a seventh grade leadership student. It is a good thing to have (high school students) so we can follow what they do. Being in such a school as Baker, one could have the opportunity to gain social expertise one could use in the outside world. Just recently, high school students could be seen out in the picnic area helping second graders with subtraction. Their little brows frowned in frustration as the tutors explained how to carry numbers. It will warm any heart to see the kindness of each working together, aiding others needs. Seeing the difference between our school and others, attending an all-grade school grants children a social benet to interact with variations of ages and knowledge. To others, it might seem like a difcult idea to grasp, but most of the Baker family expressed the same sentiment: We like it this way!NORTH OO KALOOSA S S T UDEn N T GAZETTEFrom left, Baker student Brianna Rolin, 10, assists Alex Butler, 5, with her math.

A big familyThe advantages of a K-12 school By Megan Dietz & Tiffany BerkleyDavidson Middle School Mrs. Keitha Bledsoe, the chorus teacher at Davidson Middle School, retired on Sept. 30. After 14 years at Davidson, it was hard for her to say goodbye. She had been with the school from the start, and had a lot to do with building up the schools reputation. Starting a program in a brand new school is no easy task, but Mrs. Bledsoe took up the challenge of becoming Davidsons chorus instructor and succeeded. One cannot overlook the importance of music in our society. Music has an influence on how people act and how they feel. It recounts the story of past, present and future generations. Mrs. Bledsoes accomplishments at Davidson Middle School have been numerous. Some might say that being a chorus teacher is Mrs. Keitha Bledsoe retired as Davidson Middle Schools chorus teacher after 14 years at the school.

Le t us W e W e b l easy, but we beg to differ. A special relationship has to develop between a chorus professor and his or her students. Singing is not only reading notes on a page, but also expressing feelings and emotions, which will help communicate the song to an audience. Only the best teachers can develop such a relationship. Mrs. Bledsoe is that teacher. She is diligent, yet fun. Although, miss a note, and you can make sure that shell make you stop and go over it again. The students must also know how to sight-read and have the ability to perform with little, if any, practice. Mrs. Bledsoe thoroughly trains her pupils to read and sing notes, allowing them only 10 seconds to look at the music she presents. This is only one example of her dynamic and in-depth teaching methods. There will still be a Bledsoe in the chorus room, however. Mrs. Bledsoes husband, Mr. Greg Bledsoe, moved over from Walker Elementary School to be the new Davidson chorus teacher. Combined, Mr. and Mrs. Bledsoes years of teaching span a period of more than 70 years. Though she may be retiring, Mrs. Bledsoes work still lives on through those who graduated from DMS and have moved on to high school. Mr. Kevin Lusk, the chorus teacher at Crestview High School, says his program would not be the success it is without the trained students he receives from DMS. Mrs. Bledsoe will still be close to us. She still helps Mr. Bledsoe as he finishes his last year as a chorus teacher. No matter what, Mrs. Bledsoe will still love your guts. The DMS chorus is getting ready to have a cookie dough fundraiser. Find a chorus student and help support the chorus department by buying cookie dough. She is diligent, yet fun. Although, miss a note, and you can make sure that shell make you stop and go over it again. TEACHER from page 4 By Emily TaylorBaker School Several years ago Baker School purchased nearly 28 acres of land next to the school. The lands original purpose was for the school to expand and build new buildings and classes, due to its increasing number of students. However, until the land is used to expand the school, it will serve as a tness area for athletes and JROTC, and it will also be used as a nature trail for interested students. It will utilize the exploration of our natural environment and inspire learning among the students of Baker School. Currently, the schools main focus concerning the land is creating the nature trails. JROTC has already completed one of the most tedious jobs. Using a GPS, they struggled through the thick foliage and marked the desired locations of the trails. When the trails were marked, the state Division of Forestry and the Northwest Florida Water Management District, with whom the school had formed an agreement, cut and cleared much of the ora to create the trails. Presently, the school and some helpful volunteers are rening the trails, using methods such as chipping, cutting and clearing the thick undergrowth, to make the nature trails safer and easier for use. In the future, the nature trails will be completed and the tness area will be open for JROTC and athletes. Cross country runners will be able to practice on the trails once they are safe. Elementary students will be able to go on eld trips to the Baker trails. Students studying AP environmental science will be able to use the trails to explore insects and plants for hands-on experiences. High school students could even host the eld trips for the elementary students and give them tours of the nature trails. Mr. Tom Shipp, the principal of Baker School, is also hoping to one day establish an amphitheater on the property for students. Leadership, JROTC and the AP environmental science class will shortly begin working on the Baker trails.Forest Ranger Clay Powell emerges from the woods on the Division of Forestrys John Deere high-end skid steer that cut trees and debris along the path of the Baker School hiking trail in September 2010.ANN SPANN | Special to the Student GazetteNature trails under constructionBaker trails will bring new activities for students

MAIN STREET, DOWNTOWN CRESTVIEW(850) 682-6835www.badcock.com 6512545FURNISH YOUR HOME WITH US! By Jessica Fickett & Taylor HarrisonLaurel Hill School The latest controversy in high schools today is the ever popular booby bracelets. These bracelets are sold by a nonprot organization to promote breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States and also one of the leading causes of death. More than 30,000 women are estimated to have died in 2010 alone from breast cancer. The students who wear the bracelets do so to show support for breast cancer patients many have loved ones who did or are now going through this horrible disease. But people have said that this is an improper way to represent the message, and that the slogans are inappropriate. In many of our local schools, teachers are taking these bracelets away from students because they are classed as inappropriate. Some schools are even suspending students for willful disobedience because they will not take the bracelets off. Some school administrators believe that these bracelets cause distractions in schools and encourage male students to harass female students. The schools are even passing rules that do not allow the wearing of the bracelets in their dress code. The wearing of these bracelets is a perfect example of the rst amendment, which guarantees the right to freedom of speech to the populace. Some students who wear the bracelets do so for a noble cause. They put the bracelets on to show their support for the people in their community who have dealt with the cancer either directly or indirectly. We will wear our booby bracelets to support the women of our community. At our school we had a students mom, one of our teachers, as well as one of our students, ght and survive cancer. There are other people in our school and the community who have faced or are facing this disease as well. One student commented on the matter, I dont think they should take the bracelets away, because it is bringing awareness for breast cancer. As long as the student wears them for the right reason, then I think that it shouldnt be a problem for the people to wear them. As to the wording being a distraction or inappropriate, that is exactly what is bringing attention to the matter. Many people are aware of breast cancer and they see the usual signs, wording, and ribbons and go, Oh yeah, breast cancer. But it is the new wording that is drawing attention and making people stop to realize what this whole issue is actually about. Sure there will be those who choose not to take it seriously and make fun, but how many others is it making aware of the issue? How many others are now taking a more serious look into the issue? If it takes wording that catches the attention to make more people aware of the seriousness of breast cancer, and maybe even save some lives, then we believe wearing these bracelets is the right thing to do. Students really do believe in causes, especially if they have a personal investment in the cause by either personal experiences or those of loved ones. With this issue, students are making a statement. Hear their voices; dont silence them! Bracelets stir controversyBreast cancer awareness or a classroom distraction?

She accepted, leading to the ofcial start of what is now one of the biggest clubs at CHS, as well as the pride of so many students: The CHS Dog Pound. The CHS Dog Pound is probably the best example of what Crestview is capable of. These 10 students started with having to make their own T-shirts and now more than 200 students are lining up just for a chance to get one.

Their only reward is getting the chance to prove to everyone how proud they are to be the Crestview Bulldogs. Yes, it may be corny, but its true. Their hearts are dedicated to this school 100 percent. As you can probably tell, it doesnt take much to see the love and pride shown through the CHS Dog Pound. Every single one of the 200-plus students puts their heart into this club every Friday night, standing beside the band for the entire game without a glimpse of lost interest. The absolute joy they show is unbelievable, and it is there every single game. Their dedication has gone impeccable lengths. A great example is when almost all of them rode for hours on buses just to be at a game and support the football team. The only reason why some didnt go was because there just werent enough seats on the buses. The CHS Dog Pound is a remarkable display of pure pride shared between the students, faculty, and staff of Crestview Senior High. Every Friday night, you will nd a crowd of students cheering as one club, one school, one family. It is the pride of most students at CHS. You will not believe what these students are capable of.

Many of these players were teammates in little league, but now they are rivals on a battleeld. Davidson has never lost to Shoal River at football and plans to keep their title in Crestview. Shoal River, on the other hand, wants to be the rst Mustang team to make hometown history. This isnt just for a dash in the win column, this is for bragging rights. This is to prove who the best middle school football team in Crestview is. Davidson felt great to win the rst game, but they will still practice as hard as they can this week. Shoal River will be sure to practice just as hard. Both teams want to start the game off with a statement: We are here to play. The young athletes that will play would give anything to win this game. They will take this game over to the high school when some of them play for the Bulldogs next year. This is all the talk around Crestview everybody is wondering who will win. Editors note: On Oct. 20, Crestview middle school sports history was made when Shoal River beat Davidson for the rst time with a nal score of 34 to 14.
