The council will conduct a workshop to review the charter at 5 p.m. Monday at City Hall, prior to the regular meeting. The new charter is expected to come before voters on the November ballot. The new form of government the charter would impose on Crestview differs substantially from the citys current charter, which has been around since the 1960s. Signi cant changes include: Substantially weakening the role of the mayor, including removal of the positions oversight over city public safety departments. Strengthening the role of the city council, including its indirect oversight through its city administrator of all city departments, including public safety. Enlarging city government by adding a new city administrator, who would be appointed by the council. Turning the city clerk Changes include strong council, weak mayor, city administrator and appointed clerk Council could approve city charter Monday By Michael Stewart email@example.com Okaloosa County has ordered renovations to a future combination liquor store and sports bar in Laurel Hill to cease and desist after it was discovered a permit had not been issued for the work. At issue is a building on State Road 85 purchased by William Cash Moore that used to house the Whats It Shop, which has closed. Moore plans to open a retail liquor store and small sports bar at the site. A contractor working at the site Wednesday said he was cleaning up and painting at the property and that he was not doing anything that required a building permit. Inside the building, however, a horseshoe bar was under construction, new electrical lines had been run and framing nailed in place. When questioned about the work the contractor, who declined to give his name, refused to comment. He was working out of a pickup truck with Source Contracting stenciled on the side of it. When asked about the renovations, Okaloosa Countys chief building of cial in Crestview, Purl Adams, sent an inspector to the site. Adams said the inspector told him, It looked like some (electrical) circuits were done, he was building a bar and framing around a bathroom. I said, Thats more than cleaning up and painting. The issue rst came up at a Tuesday meeting of the Laurel Hill City Council, when residents in the small rural community north of Crestview questioned why work was being allowed on the building although no permit had been issued. Theyve been working there for weeks, day and night, said Have home, Wanderer includes Crestview on cross-country odyssey By Brian Hughes firstname.lastname@example.org At the inglorious end of a 15-year relationship, in lieu of the usual midlife crisis solutions buying a Corvette or adopting Kazakh orphans, for example Palmer Stevens set off to explore America and, hopefully, nd some answers to lifes conundrums along the way. On March 3, 2011, after four months of planning, Stevens departed Detroit, helming a 2005 Ford F-350 diesel dually pickup towing a Fuzion 393 camping trailer. The rigs about 10 feet shorter than a tractor-trailer, he said. On Jan. 24, his odyssey brought him to town, where he spent a couple days camped out in the Crestview Public Library parking lot. Over a meal at the Wild Olive, he shared advice for RVers and described his adventures. I realized I had the opportunity to do this once I sold my house, he said. I have a business I can do through the Internet. I realized whats in my trailer is all I really used in my house anyway, so I really didnt have to give up anything except a $3,000 a month mortgage payment. An IT consultant for small businesses, Stevens tries to park where he can receive wireless Internet signals to service his clients. Communications technology facilitates both his job and his travels. My smartphone, the Internet, GPS, they all make it a creative way to travel inexpensively and its a lot more practical than RVing used to be, Stevens said. A South Florida native, Stevens uses Facebook and school alumni websites to hunt down old friends, and hopefully, nd some answers to lifes conundrums along the way.

By Michael Stewart email@example.com When Dorcas Fire District re ghter J.J. Bell arrived at the re station on Poverty Creek Road shortly after 6 a.m. Wednesday morning, she discovered two bullet holes in an exterior door leading into the stations re bay. She immediately called re Capt. Scott Zamorski and the re ghters found two more bullet holes in one of the stations large bay doors used for re trucks. One bullet penetrated the re bay door, skimmed across a wall and exited the back of the building. The re ghters said the bullet holes were not there when they left Tuesday afternoon and believe the shooting occurred later that night or early Wednesday morning. Bell said the bullet holes left her with an uneasy feeling. I come up here some nights, Bell said. I could have been shot. Dorcas Fire Chief Josh Lingenfelter agreed. People sleep here some nights, Lingenfelter said. I think its a blatant disregard for life and safety.

Local Crestview News Bulletin | A3 Saturday, February 11, 2012 GUNSHOTS from page A1 son said. Zamorski said the dep uty seemed to believe the bullet holes were likely an accident caused by a hunt er. Zamorski disagreed. The land across from the re station where the bul lets would have come from is privately owned and is not hunted, Zamorski said. He believes the shots were the result of a driveby-shooting, with the shots red intentionally from Poverty Creek Road, which fronts the re station. Who goes and shoots up a re station? Zamorski asked. I mean, really. This concerns me. Although the depart ments new re engine or no other equipment was damaged, it will cost money to repair the bullet holes, Zamorski said. We cant have bullet holes in the re station, Zamorski said. Its not the rst time the re department has had problems. Six cam eras were mounted to the exterior of the re station following a string of thefts in which equipment was stolen. Unfortunately, the cam eras, which cover the build ings exterior, were not aimed at the road or they might have caught the per son or persons who red the shots, Lingenfelter said. I am going to look at a camera aimed at the road, Lingenfelter said. CASH from page A1 the Rev. Mike McVay, pas tor of First Baptist Church of Laurel Hill, a vocal op ponent of the bar and liquor store. Laurel Hill Mayor Joan Smith said, however, that the city does not issue per mits. How can the city get involved with it? Smith asked. We dont tell you to get a permit, the county does. The city, which has no code enforcement division, has an interlocal agreement with the county to provide inspection and permitting services. Under the agreement, city ofcials are required to send an approval letter to the county stating that the new business meets city zoning requirements be fore the county will inspect the building and issue work permits, Adams said. The city never sent the letter, said Angie Edge, the countys permitting and li censing manager. Ive talked to them (city ofcials) several times, Edge said. I would think they understand it. Adams said he would contact the owner and in form him that he was go ing to have to get all of his ducks in a row before work could resume. Once the citys letter of approval is received, site plans will have to be submit ted. Permitting will require the building be brought up to code and made handicap accessible. There are all kinds of is sues; it goes on and on and on, Adams said. When contacted, Moore said he didnt think any of the work being done re quired a permit. We arent tearing out any walls or anything, Moore said. TRAVEL from page A1 frequently winds up haul ing his rig into their drive ways. He estimates his annual expenses are about $25,000, including diesel fuel. Wandering is not new to Stevens, a high school grad uate of the Flint School, a preparatory school aboard two schooners, the Te Vega and Te Quest, tall-mast sailing ships that roamed the oceans of the world. While more traditional stu dents had soccer practice or were in the glee club, Stevens and his school mates cleaned bilges and stood night watch. My homework blew overboard, was not an accepted excuse, Stevens said. Stevens has encoun tered some fascinating peo ple during his current trip, not all of who t the image of the retiree wheeling an RV around the country. At Jackson Well Springs, Ore., he wound up in a nudist RV park. They had yoga and all that crazy stuff, Stevens said, laughing. They were all these hippies living in tents. They called them Trustafarians because they all had trust funds and sat around smoking mari juana all day. At an organic farm in California, Stevens helped pick crops. Another time he stayed in a Buddhist monastery. In the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, he attended Burning Man, a radical self-expression and radical self-reliance festival. In Slab City, Calif., an abandoned Marine Corps base now populated by often destitute free spir ited folks, he befriended a transsexual lady living in a windowless cargo trailer. To bring fellow nomads together, Stevens founded DrivewaySurng.org, a spin-off of the travelers Couchsurng.net site. His trailers garage has a eet of ve bicycles so new friends can explore a com munity together. To break the ice at RV parties, an overhead bin in Stevens trailer is packed with funny hats, including ve pith helmets. When you travel alone it gives you the freedom to interact with people in a more intimate way than if you have a traveling com panion, Stevens said. I want to develop more of my social creative side. You have a lot more time to imbed yourself in some communities, go to social events, and see how other people live. Crestview may not be quite as exotic as some places Stevens has been, but he found the communi ty warm and hospitable. He also praised Chris Daggs at Hub City Ford, where after he gasped at the price of a short turbocharger hose, Daggs sold it to him at cost. He felt sorry for me, Stevens said. Someday Stevens might settle down. His dream job is to become an IT direc tor on a super-yacht, but until that ship comes in, hes content to continue his wanderings, meeting new people, experiencing new things and not looking back. It took me 25 years to wiggle my way out of cor porate serfdom and mort gage bondage and pets and all the rest of the American dream, he said. Downsiz ing is very popular these days. I enjoy the freedom and benets of being light weight and mobile. You may follow Palmer Stevens odyssey at www. palmerstevens.com/trav el/. CHARTER from page A1 from a position elected by voters to a council appoin tee. Subsequent efforts to re vise or replace Crestviews existing charter have con sistently met with disap proval from the electorate. This time, council mem bers hope a campaign of voter education will have a better result. The recent process of revising the charter began in June 2009 at the sugges tion of then council Presi dent Bob Allen. A charter review committee met un der the chairmanship of former Mayor Jerry Mil ligan and made its recom mendations to the council in July 2010. The city council debated the committees recom mendations for several months. At a December 2010 workshop, council members directed Admin istrative Services staff to begin drafting a new char ter embodying the city ad ministrator/weak mayor form of government. Until his defeat in the May 2011 elections, Allen remained the councils sole supporter of a strong may or, commenting, All youre doing is putting another level of bureaucracy in there, at $100,000 a year. Most of the committees recommendations are found in the new docu ment. At a Feb. 6 workshop, Administrative Services Director Mike Wing pre sented an almost-ready version of the new charter. He and the council identi ed a few typos to correct, including removing phrase ology lifted from the Okaloo sa County charter that re fers to regularly scheduled ferry services connecting precinct portions. Wing whose depart ment would be renamed Community Services under the proposed charter and city attorney Ben Holley must also review candidate qualifying information in the document with Supervisor of Elections Paul Lux. To be placed on the November ballot, the charter must be submitted to Luxs ofce by May 15. Council member Robyn Helt, who sat on the charter review committee before be ing elected to the council, encouraged Wing and his staff to have the nalized charter ready as early as possible. The only way this is go ing to be accepted by the people is if we engage in a very active campaign of ex plaining it, Helt said. Its going to take a little time to come up with the wording on the ballot, Holley said, which must be passed by ordinance. If its not done right, it can be challenged. Could we not prelimi narily start drafting the ordinance? Helt asked. The things that we foresee coming down the pike that were going to need to do, lets just start doing them now. The council meets at 6 p.m. Feb. 13 at which time it is expected to approve the nalized proposed charter. PHOTOS BY MIC H AEL ST EWAR T | News Bulletin Dorcas Fire District reghter J.J.

Both ministers, as well as members of the congre gation, shared fond mem ories of a loved and re spected community leader known for her ability to gently motivate her fellow educators, members of the church or civic leaders to better their community. We rejoice because of the many ways Mabel Jean touched so many, Broad head said. She embodied her faith through her ac tions and her decisions. Mabel Jean, as you know, had a love of education. She loved innovation. She would not accept I cant as an excuse. Remarks by Mary Gunt er, principal at Liza Jack son Preparatory School in Fort Walton Beach, repre sented the sentiments of the many educators at the service. Morrison, Gunter said, was renowned for having a saying for most occasions. When I would go into her ofce with a new idea, she would say, Go for it. Another saying she had was Keep on keeping on. Her leadership style was just wonderful. She trusted you. She didnt hover over you. She had a philosophy that you had to believe in yourself. She didnt believe in obstacles. She knew you had some thing inside of you that was stronger than obstacles. Morrisons humanity and affection for children brought a reminiscence from Aleta Beck of Magno lia Baptist Church, where young members of the con gregation were often the benefactors of Morrisons generosity. My own girls learned so much from her, Beck said. They learned not to put their elbows on the ta ble, and they learned how much a smile and friendly word means to a child. A van full of representa tives of the Florida State University Alumni Asso ciation motored to Laurel Hill to attend the funeral of the past president of the universitys Emeritus Alumni Society. She was denitely a woman whose heart and support were for FSU, as sociation representative Mandi Young said. Mabel Jean was such a leader and inspiration for the Alumni Association. I think in the spiri tual world, Mabel Jean is watching over us and shes still saying, Keep on keep ing on, Gunter said.

I Take Care of Veterans Because I am a Veteran! By Tawra Kellam Special to the News Bulletin Using a little imagination, you can make your Valentines Day a little more fun and a lot less expensive. If you want to add a little personalized romance or if you dont have the time or money to buy all the premade things in the store, here are some ideas from www.Living OnADime.com to help you make the day special. FOR THE KIDS My mom always made a great but inexpensive Valentines Day treat for us. She would take construction paper and cut a big heart out of it (about 8x10 inches), then she would staple the edges together and write our names and an I love you on the outside. Then she would ll the heart with candy, purchased on clearance after Christmas. It was very inexpensive but we loved it! Have a Valentines Day treasure hunt. Leave little notes around, with the last one leading back to the kitchen table with a heart full of candy. Make heart-shaped Valentine cookies and cut the kids (or hubbys) sandwiches with a heart shaped cookie cutter to make heart sandwiches. Add a few Valentines chocolates and put a note in red with big hearts on their napkins. Serve anything red for the day. Serve red Jello, red pudding, red apples, toast with strawberry jelly, tomato soup, red applesauce, red Koolaid, strawberry milk, or red frosted cookies. Use powered food coloring from the cake store to get the deepest shade of red. Leave sticks of red gum in their Valentines Day cards. Make hearts out of chocolate chips in each of your pancakes. THINGS TO DO WITH OR FOR YOUR HONEY Make a treasure hunt for your spouse. Start by mailing or emailing him the rst clue. Then leave clues all over the house, yard, car or his ofce telling him where to nd the next clue. End the hunt by making a picnic in the backyard or going to a park for a picnic. Use your imagination and have fun. The simple things are the ones people remember. Go to a bookstore together, enjoy the silence and browse. Get a cup of coffee and make a date of it. Celebrate Valentines Day AFTER Valentines Day when everything is half off. Mail a love letter to your hubbys work. Send your spouse a sexy email message. Leave Why I love you messages all over the house. Buy a package of the cheap Valentines. Leave a message on each one and hide them all over the house for your honey. They will get to enjoy the gift for months! Use lipstick to make hearts and love notes on the rearview mirror, car windows, bathroom mirror or windows of the house. Leave a kiss on his napkin for lunch or dinner. Make a bunch of hearts out of construction paper. Put a love note on each one. Paste them all over the front door or car before your hubby or kids come home from work. If you dont have money to go out, have a picnic on the oor. Use some candles and lay a soft blanket on the oor. Put on some soft music and have a romantic Valentines dinner on the oor. Use some white Christmas lights for additional romantic lighting!

She was born in Laurel Hill, on Jan. 14, 1927, and is preceded in death by her parents, Malcolm and Amanda Morrison and her brother, James (Sonny) Morrison. She is survived by her sister-in-law, Barbara Morrison, nephew, Scott (Stacy) Morrison, and niece Debbie (Mike Lane) Morrison. Dr. Morrison led her life with dignity, honesty, and integrity, setting high personal and professional standards for herself and others. Her positive attitude, along with her work ethic and inner strength, allowed her to be successful in a variety of areas. After graduating from FSU and working in Tallahassee, Mabel Jean returned to Laurel Hill and her familys pioneer homestead in 1973 and became a committed and involved member of her community. She was inducted into the Okaloosa County Womens Hall of Fame in 1999, where she was recognized for pioneering many educational programs and leading the way for women in the community. In 2007, Dr. Morrison was chosen as the Laurel Hill Citizen of the Year, and it was noted that she is representative of what is good and right in Laurel Hill. Education, for herself, and others, was Dr. Morrisons passion. While attending FSU, she received her degree in Elementary Education, an MA in Elementary Education, Child Growth & Development, and Administration/ Supervision, an Education Specialist Degree, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. Her never ending loyalty to her alma mater, FSU, was evident to all who knew her, and she was the recipient of the FSU College of Educations Distinguished Graduate Award. During her life, Dr. Morrison stayed involved with the FSU Alumni Association and Emeritus Society and was recognized by the FSU College of Education as an Outstanding Alumna. Dr. Morrison dedicated her life to better education for all youth. She began her education career in Tallahassee and was Leon Countys Teacher of the Year in 1957. From the classroom she rose to become the Director of Elementary Education, where she developed the Head Start Program. Returning to Okaloosa County in 1973, she served as Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, Pre-K through 12, from 1974 until her retirement in 1993. Her professional experience was extensive, and she served in various positions with Florida Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), Florida Association for Childhood Education, Targeted Selection, Title IV, Okaloosa Youth Services Task Force, Project CHILD, and Alpha Delta Kappa, just to name a few. Also, by serving as consultant, chairman, vice-chairman, member, coach, trainer, and facilitator for school visiting committees with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), she became renowned for her work in school improvement. Dr. Morrisons proactive approach, along with her ability to encourage educators to be innovative, take risks, and become involved with state and national education initiatives, enabled Okaloosa County to lead the state in student achievement. She was known as a visionary in the education eld and worked tirelessly to provide opportunities for growth among teachers, administrators, and students. Never losing sight that education is for the students, she worked hard to translate good ideas into the classroom without seeking credit or praise for herself, and as she would say, the job never ends, the game is never over, there will always be a better way to teach, a better way to learn, and we must always go ahead. In retirement, Mabel Jean never slowed down. Always interested and involved in issues relevant to her community, the Florida Presbytery, and especially to her church, the Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church, she graciously served on many boards and committees. She was well known for her thoughtfulness, and other peoples accomplishments or struggles were always acknowledged with a kind, encouraging word, a gift, or a thoughtful card. Mabel Jean also continued to work in the education eld as a mentor and school consultant, along with working closely in the Kids Vote, Too program, Florida Center for Children and Youth, and Take Stock in Children. In 2009, she was thrilled to receive the very special honor of a rose garden dedicated to her by her own alma mater, the Laurel Hill School. Dr. Mabel Jean Morrison possessed the ability to make a difference. Regardless of whether it was a professional endeavor, color and image consulting, a community project, or sharing in the joys, sorrows, or accomplishments of others, she was able to touch many lives in many ways.

By Randy Dickson firstname.lastname@example.org FREEPORT Baker seniors Dylan Dunford and Danny Spicer came up big for the Gators as they opened the boys District 2-1A tournament with a 50-36 win over Jay on Tuesday. The Gators will take on top seed Chipley in the tournament semi nals at 6 p.m. on Friday. The Royals (12-11) struck rst when Todd Laney hit a 3-point basket 20 seconds into the game. Dunford then took over for Baker, hitting a 2-point basket with 7:21 left in the rst and following it up with a 3-pointer a little less than a minute later. Dunfords three gave the Gators (1016) a lead they didnt surrender the rest of the way. When the rst quarter ended Dunford had 12 of his game-high 18 points and the Gators led 17-11. Dunford said it was important for the Gators to jump out early on the Royals as the teams split their regular season games, even though Baker had big lead in both games at one time. I was feeling great, Dunford said. Its good to get a lead on them and keep it. We lost to them one time this year, but we got them when it matters most. Baker turned up the defense in the second quarter, holding the Royals to ve points on the way to building a 28-16 lead. Steven Grant came off the bench to score ve points and Garrett Sanders scored four points as the Gators started to pull away. Unlike the earlier games, Jay never got closer than 11 points in the second half. While Dunford led the way in the rst quarter it was Spicer coming up big in the third quarter, scoring seven of his 15 points. Baker led 41-24 heading into the fourth quarter and kept a comfortable lead on the Royals throughout the nal period as they nished off the win. Dunford and Spicer were the only Gators scoring in double gures, but they got enough help from their friends to keep the Royal defense honest. Grant scored six points, as did Sanders. Josh Hartzog added ve points. Laney led the Royals with 17 points. Eric Trevino was next in scoring for Jay with seven points. Baker coach Mike Martello was pleased with the way the Gators played from start to nish. In the rst quarter we shot the ball really well, he said. My two seniors, Dylan Dunford and Danny Spicer, stepped up in the rst half. We had our ups and downs in the rst quarter, but we stilled played defense. We didnt let the Laney kid get on the track, and thats why we kept the lead we had most of the ball game. Dylan Dunford drives the lane against Jay on his way to an 18-point night in the District 2-1A tournament opener.

Bulldogs baseball team ready to go By Randy Dickson email@example.com Crestview kicks off the 2012 baseball season at 7 p.m. Thursday when the Bulldogs host Marianna. Expectations are running high for the team coming off its first district championship since 1999 and Coach Tim Gillis is ready to get the season started to see if Crestview can make it back-to-back titles. Every day is a good for baseball, he said. The weather has been great. But of course its probably going to be freezing when we start playing. It wont take the Bulldogs, who finished last year with a 21-9 record, long to see how they stack up in the new District 2-6A that includes Choctawhatchee, Fort Walton Beach, Mosley and Nice ville. Eight of Crestviews first 10 games are against district opponents. The Bulldogs travel to Choctaw on Friday to play the Indians, who won the District 1-4A title a year ago. Its going to be tough (to repeat), Gillis said. We recognize that going in, but thats what makes it fun. Gillis has plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the 2012 season. The Bulldogs return most of their starting lineup, including the entire infield and the top two pitchers in wins a year ago. Seth Thomason is back at first base for his junior year. Seniors Derek Lovelace and Kameron Miller will be at second and third base. And junior Dakota Dean is back to man the shortstop spot that has been his since he stepped on the field as a freshman. Junior Tyler Henderson returns for his third season as the starting center fielder. He will be flanked by two newcomers in the starting lineup in left and right field. Gillis said several players are battling for those positions. The competition is strong for those spots, he said. Youve got Drew Gibbons and Tate Sweatt out there. Weve got some situations where we are going to have Dennis Gibbons in the infield and move some guys around when they are not pitching, so Seth Thomason will probably play some outfield as well. And youve got Davis Champion, who really had a good summer for us out there and P.J. Granger and Roman Donofro. Weve got some definite options. Its just a matter of plugging the right one in there at the right time. Austin Armstrong, who was promoted from the junior varsity to the varsity toward the end of last season, will do most of the catching. He did a great job handling the (pitching) staff, Gillis said. And he swings the bat really well. He had some valuable experience in some meaningful games last year and that wont do nothing but help us all. Miller and Lee are expected to be the top two starting pitchers. Champion and Donofro also are in the mix for a spot in the starting rotation. If Champion and Donofro dont earn spots as starters they still are expected to contribute out of the bullpen. Trent Zellars, Dean and Thomason also will see some time on the mound. Dennis Gibbons returns as the teams top closer. Its possible that the 2012 Bulldogs could be better than last years team and still have a worse record against what might be the toughest schedule in team history. Along with their District 2-6A schedule the Bulldogs play North Florida Christian, which won the Class 2A state championship last year, District 1-6A power Pace and stiff competition from out of state, which is headlined by Tennessee powerhouse Farragut. Farragut, a suburb of Knoxville, has won five state championships in the past six years playing in the states largest classification. Gillis said its important to play a tough schedule in order for the Bulldogs to survive District 2-6A and make a strong run in the playoffs. Its an extremely difficult schedule, he said. But I think at the same time we realize where we want to get back to. We know its going to be tough and every day out youve got to give it your best. Thats one reason we went with a tougher schedule. And a lot of that has to do with who we are playing in our district. P hotos by RANDY DICKSON | News Bulletin Tyler Henderson drives a pitch to the opposite eld during batting practice Monday.
