A12 By PAULA KELLEY 682-6524 | @cnbPaula firstname.lastname@example.org On Saturday, March 24, Main Street in Crestview will be lled with the smells of slow cooked barbecue, the laughter of children and the sounds of music for the eighth annual Triple B (Blackwater, Bluegrass and BBQ cookoff) festival. This years event, sponsored by the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce, is shaping up to be the biggest yet, with more vendors than ever before. Right now, were well over 117 vendors and working on placement, said Valerie Merritt, of ce manager for the chamber of commerce. We think this year will be fabulous for Triple B. It is bigger and better than ever before and were already wondering about 2013. Individuals, civic groups, political candidates, restaurants, businesses, organizations, and artisans will set up booth spaces all along Main Street. This year the vendors will stretch from the Okaloosa County Courthouse to the railroad tracks south of Coney Island. The Chambers PILOT (Professional and Inspired Leaders of Tomorrow) committee is responsible for organizing the event. In a change from last year, we are distributing the barbecue competitors among the vendors, instead of placing all the barbecue competitors near the south stage as we have in the past, said Shawn LaRue, PILOT committee chairman. We believe this will provide better exposure for everyone. Admittance to the festival is free. Activities for children will include bounce houses, face painting and safety identi cation kits, to name a few. Record vendors expected at Triple B By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian email@example.com More than Florida A&M Universitys new Rural Diversity Healthcare Center was showcased at Wednesday mornings topping-off ceremony, which marked the completion of major structural construction on Crestviews historic Alatex Building, which is being converted into a pharmacy school. Of cials also lauded the unique community and institutional partnership as the future of education. This partnership is going to be the one to watch, FAMU president Dr. James Ammons said. This partnership is going to be the model thats studied all over America. Former state Senator Durell Peaden was recognized by of cials as the motivating force behind ful lling Ammons vision for a pharmacy school in Northwest Florida. We talked about building it in another city, Ammons recalled. As soon as I got the name of the other city out of my mouth, he said, Oh no, I have a better place. You dont have a better champion for Crestview than Senator Peaden. Dr. Ammons has a vision about education. Its a good vision, Peaden By Paula Kelley 682-6524 | @cnbPaula firstname.lastname@example.org It was 25 years ago when Leon and Saundra Daggs rst purchased Hub City Ford on U.S. Highway 90 West next to the former location of the Greyhound bus station. Last month they celebrated their silver anniversary with a special luncheon that was attended by representatives of Ford Motor Company. Later that day, they hosted the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerces after-hours social. The Daggs said they have seen thousands of satis ed customers drive off their car lot in their 25 years of business. It is an amazing moment in your life, when you look back and know that you can take pride in what you have done as you have given it your best, said Saundra Daggs, who is the vice president of Hub City Ford.

Approval seems likely. Members of the council, who also comprise the CRA board, were generally supportive. Helt, who called the proposed dog park another service for our people, came up with the idea after touring a dog park in Destin. I was absolutely amazed and astounded at the sense of community in that little park, Helt said. I saw children; I saw elderly people; I saw people from all walks of life, all occupational levels, all co-existing in a safe, comfortable environment. Helt said Administrative Services Director Mike Wing has identi ed a suitable location for the dog park in the southwest corner of Twin Hills Park south of the childrens playground. Theres already suf cient parking there, which is a big plus, and there is already fencing on three sides, Helt said. In addition, the city would provide a doggie water fountain, pet waste disposal bags and containers, benches, City council likes dog park proposal Dogs might have their day See FORD A2 See DOGS A2 BRIAN HUGHES | News Bulletin This partially enclosed wooded hillside in Twin Hills Park could soon be lled with frolicking canines and their owners if a proposal for a Crestview dog park comes to fruition.

He was in preight training at the U.S. Naval Air Sta tion there. We married and his work moved us many times over the years. Leon Daggs worked for Procter & Gamble and McDonnell Douglas before going to work for Ford. Pro moted several times while working in the Ford Market ing Institute in Dearborn, Mich., Leon was asked to assist in writing the federal Lemon Law. When Leon completed the Ford Dealer Develop ment Program we started to think about where we would relocate, Saundra Daggs said. We came full circle when we chose to make the Panhandle of Florida our home. By 1992, their son, Christopher, a Crestview High School graduate, had nished college and re turned home to become the general manager of the car dealership. I love the fact that Hub City Ford feels like a family owned and operated busi ness, Christopher Daggs said. I started with the dealership washing cars while I was in high school. It is the great American dream in this economy to see a family business that is still full of the passion that my family feels for this place. Around the same time, the Daggs began shopping around for a new location. If location is every thing, we knew that we were not where we should be, Saundra Daggs said. We werent centralized enough and we saw that Crestview was growing to the south. In 1993 they moved to their location on State Road 85, south of Interstate 10. In 2011, a remodel and rede sign of the dealership was completed. Christopher did a great job with day-to-day opera tions and all of the work that made our beautiful new showroom, additional ofce space and eet de partment on site, Saundra Daggs said. Over the years, the Daggs have had a nancial interest in ve automobile dealerships in two states. They have since sold their interest in other business es and kept their focus on Hub City Ford. The dealership has won numerous awards over the years, including Ford Mo tor Companys Presidents Award, multiple Top Prot awards for Ford-LincolnMercury minority dealers, and the Emerald Coast Finest Customer Service Award. Leon Daggs attributes the dealerships suc cess to perseverance and planning. Just dont have a failure plan, he once said. Dont give yourself the option to fail and you have no choice but to succeed. The Daggs are also in volved in the community. Saundra Daggs, who is retired from her work as a drama, music and class room instructor at Baker and Southside Elementary schools, volunteers for sev eral philanthropies, includ ing the Covenant Hospice Blue Jean Ball. She is also an accomplished vocalist and is often invited to sing the national anthem at area events. Christopher Daggs is involved with the Crest view Area Chamber of Commerce and serves on the organizations Triple B committee. SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN Christopher, Saundra and Leon Daggs celebrated 25 years of award-winning service and sales for Crestviews Hub City Ford. DOGS from page A1 picnic tables, a covered shelter, additional fencing, lighting and signs listing dog park rules. The total cost to complete the park was estimated at slightly less than $22,000. Helt suggested putting the proposal on the agenda of the April 16 CRA meet ing, noting that Twin Hills Park falls within the CRA district and the dog park could qualify for CRA fund ing so there would be no cost to our citizens. Council member Tim Grandberry said he had discussed the popularity of Destins dog park with Mayor Sarah Sam Seev ers and was told by her that the parks popularity far ex ceeded her expectations. She never thought it would be that big of a suc cess, Grandberry said. It would be great for dog shows and veterinary clin ics, too. Council President Charles Baugh Jr. asked Helt if having a city-run dog park meets a need ex pressed by citizens, and two, whos going to be re sponsible for cleaning this up? Yes, there is a lot of citizen interest, Helt said, saying she has received many calls from citizens requesting a dog park. Its also a place where we could involve organizations such as P.A.W.S. (Panhandle Animal Welfare Society) to come out and provide ani mal adoptions. In terms of the clean up, one of the park rules is you clean up after your own dog, Helt said. In this proposal there is provision for stocking the little dog gie bags. City attorney Ben Hol ley counseled making sure the citys liability insurance would cover a dog park. Holley said signs could be posted stating the city will be held harmless in the event of a mishap, But you wouldnt be held harmless if somebody decides to sue the city. Crestview Parks and Recreation Manager Chuck Powell said dogs would have to have proof of current vaccinations to be allowed in the park. Volunteers will supervise the park, checking vaccina tion tags and making sure owners clean up after their pets, he said. Generally speaking, folks who want to take the time to come out to a dog park are responsible pet owners, Powell said. Theyre going to do whats right. Powell said the dog park would be a welcome and popular feature of Twin Hills Park. It is a great idea and we are certainly on board with it if the city decides to go forward with it, Pow ell said. It will be a great addition to what is one of the best park facilities in Northwest Florida. Charles Batson, who walks his dog Jolie at the park regularly, agreed, but said the site might be too small for bigger dogs, or others, like Jolie, who pre fer bigger spaces. She really likes to move around a lot, Batson said. She likes a large area to play around in. BBB from page A1 A main festival com ponent is the barbecue competition. So far 17 com petitors have signed up to enter their pulled pork, brisket, wings, chicken, or ribs for judging. Some will enter their delicious, secret recipe sauces, yet another category for the competition. The ofcial judging of the competing teams is done by a blind judging system, the same one used in the major barbecue sanction ing bodies like the huge one in Kansas City, said Colin Richards, who is coordinat ing the barbecue competi tion. Each team receives an identical foam tray with lid to place their food sam ple in. The judges have no way of knowing where the sample came from. Richards said that the Peoples Choice award is the most coveted among the barbecue competitors as the people eating the bar becue choose the winner. Festival attendees can purchase Peoples Choice tickets at chamber of com merce booths and redeem them at any competitors booth for a free barbecue sample. The competitor with the most tickets at the end of the festival takes the award. There will also be two entertainment stages The Florida Lotto stage near the Okaloosa County Veterans Memorial, and the south stage, near Co ney Island and the railroad tracks. Musical groups are slated to perform at Flori da Lotto stage throughout the day beginning just af ter opening ceremonies at 10 a.m. Performances by Highway Home, and the Rowell Bluegrass Band lead up to the rst appear ance of Mississippi-based Small Room 9, the headlin ing act. The south stage will feature local talent and will include karaoke, individual and group martial arts exhibitions and Zumba dancing. Two locally loved gospel music groups, Wesley Boys and The Jeremiah 29:11, will also perform. FUTURE from page A1 said. This is the future of education. It ought to be a partnership between com munities and institutions. You dont need people in Tallahassee telling you how to run education in your own community. Ammons praised local ofcials including Crest view Mayor David Cadle, City Council President Charles Baugh Jr., and Oka loosa County Commissioner Wayne Harris for their sup port in the historic buildings conversion to a satellite campus of FAMUs School of Pharmacy. Students are scheduled to begin classes leading to a doctor of phar macy degree in August. The city council, the mayor and the citizens have rolled out the red carpet for Florida A&M University, Ammons said. This feels like home. This historic Alatex Building may be Crestviews history, but its Florida A&Ms future. Both Peaden and Am mons acknowledged the path to Wednesdays cer emony was not always smooth, but together, the men formed a friendship and united to overcome political and nancial obstacles. Its come a long way, Peaden said. Weve had a lot of ghts along the way. It was all about money. Just a few years ago we came to Crestview to talk about this vision, Am mons said. The longest ride I ever had back to Tallahassee was the night I left here after hearing some of the negative com ments about this project. But God is still in control! After remarks in the city council chamber, ofcials and dignitaries donned construction hardhats and crossed Wilson Street to the 1930s former sewing factory. A length of steel I-beam, painted glistening white, waited on the west side of the second story for ofcials and commu nity leaders to sign. It was the last piece of structural steel to be placed. Our signatures will be sealed inside forever, One Day Came contractors President and CEO David Delancy III said. When you pass by in years to come, you can say, I have my signature inside this facility. In addition to FAMU, state and city ofcials signatures, representa tives of One Day Came and their joint venture partner, Peter Brown Construc tion, added their names, as did community leaders including Mae Retha Cole man and Florence Hayes, whose late husband, for mer city council member Samuel Hayes, was surely smiling down on the event, she said. After signing the beam, former Crestview Mayor Jerry Milligan walked around the Alatex Building marveling at the progress. As far back as his admin istration in the 1980s, city leaders had debated what to do with the downtown landmark. It was here when the right project came along, Milligan said. It is tre mendous to see this. Progress is steadily moving along, Delancy said. Pretty soon were going to have a roof on it and after that, its a race to the nish. I think the next time we meet, were going to be in the front cutting the ribbon. Peaden and Ammons comments were more emotional. Oh my goodness alive! Peaden exclaimed as they stepped onto the second oor and looked around. Whoa! I could never have imagined this. Wow! was all Am mons managed to say as he broke into a broad grin. Wow.

By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian email@example.com His name was really spelled Pdraig. He wasnt Irish at all, yet today St. Patrick is widely recognized as the patron saint of Ireland, where, it is commonly believed, he spent the latter part of the fth century ministering. Indeed, Patric (or Padric or Padrig, depending on translations) was a Welshman, who, according to his letters, was kidnapped by Irish raiders who took him to their home island as a young teen. He escaped and made his way back to Wales, but later he joined the Roman Catholic Church and returned to Ireland as a missionary. But inconsistencies between legend and history aside including that bit about banishing the snakes: Ireland never had em to begin with every March 17, everybodys a wee bit Irish and the wearin o the green is commonplace as we celebrate St. Patricks Day. Patrons of the Crestview Public Library got a jump start on the holiday Tuesday evening with a program of Irish dance presented by members of the Christian Ceili Club. A Ceili (pronounced kee-lee) is a traditional Celtic community dance festival.

Crestview News Bulletin | A5 Saturday, March 17, 2012 One day, a mother and her young daughter were driving to the zoo. On the way, the little girl began counting out loud the crosses on various church steeples. Mom, she asked, interrupting her counting, how many times did Jesus die? One time, dear, her mother answered. Then why are there so many crosses? the little girl asked. To help us remember how much Jesus loves us, her mother replied. He died on a cross for us. Well, the child responded, how could anyone forget something like that? How could anyone forget something like that? And yet it seems like people do all the time, doesnt it? The season of Lent is about half over now as we approach the time we remember the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. We need to remember his passion his cruci xion and death upon the cross because there can be no resurrection without the cruci xion. And the fact that Jesus knew he would suffer great humiliation, and pain, and death did not keep him from going to Jerusalem, and sacri cing his life for all people. He was willing to endure the pain, suffering and humiliation for us all. He knew we are worth it. Philip Yancey in his book, The Jesus I Never Knew, tells a heartbreaking story very much like the humiliation Jesus endured. The story comes from a memoir by Pierre Van Paassen about the years of World War II. In this memoir Van Paassen tells of an act of humiliation by Nazi storm troopers who had seized an elderly Jewish rabbi and dragged him to their headquarters. At the far end of the same room, two colleagues were beating another Jew to death, but the captors of the rabbi decided to have some fun with the old rabbi. They stripped him naked and commanded that he preach the sermon he had prepared for the coming Sabbath. The rabbi asked if he could wear his yarmulke, and the Nazis, grinning, agreed. It added to the joke. The trembling rabbi proceeded to deliver, in a raspy voice, his sermon on what it means to walk humbly before God, all the while being poked and prodded by the hooting Nazis, and all the while hearing the last cries of his neighbor at the other end of the room. Yancey said, When I read the gospel accounts of the imprisonment, torture and execution of Jesus, I think of that naked rabbi standing humiliated in a police station. Even after watching scores of movies on the subject, and reading the Gospels over and over, I still cannot fathom the indignity, the shame, endured by Gods Son on earth, stripped naked, ogged, spat on, struck in the face, and garlanded with thorns. As the little girl asked, How could anyone forget something like that? In the story War And Peace there is a very touching scene. Nicholas Rostov has lost a huge sum of money at gambling. Now he must face his father. Only the week before he borrowed money from his father with a promise that he would never borrow again. Nicholas is lled with grief over this breach of honor. Yet his pride will not allow him to admit it. He compounds his error by affecting a casual attitude. It cant be helped! It happens to everyone! says Nicholas with a bold, free, and easy tone. But in his soul he regards himself as a worthless man whose whole life could not atone for his crime. He longs to kiss his fathers hand and kneel to beg his forgiveness, but instead he says in a careless and even rude voice, that it happens to everyone! The old Count casts down his eyes on hearing his sons words and mutters, Yes, yes, it will be dif cult, I fear, dif cult to raise . happens to everybody. Yes, who has not done it? And with a furtive glance at his sons face the Count goes out of the room. Nicholas had been prepared for resistance, but had not at all expected the hurt and pain in his fathers face. Papa! Papa! he calls after his father, sobbing, Forgive me! And seizing his fathers hand he presses it to his lips and bursts into tears. This is a problem for many people, isnt it? How can you experience Gods forgiveness when you feel as though you havent really done anything wrong? Thats where a lot of people are, isnt it? They dont really feel that their sins are all that bad. But the cross says that sin is very serious business. Sin brought about the shedding of Jesus blood. Sin drove nails into his hands and feet. Sin drained the life out of him. How could anyone forget something like that? Jesus sacri ced himself on the cross for our sake, so we could receive eternal life through the forgiveness of our sins. How do you respond to that? The Rev. Mark Broadhead is pastor at Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church, 5118 Fourth Street, which worships at 9 a.m., and First Presbyterian Church of Crestview, 492 N.

Outdoors A8 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, March 17, 2012 Shikar-Safari honors FWC Officer of the Year Special to the News Bulletin Ofcer Duane North is the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions 2012 Law En forcement Ofcer of the Year. North, who works in the Volusia County agen cys northeast region, was recognized Thursday by Shikar-Safari Club International during the FWCs Commission meeting at the Florida Public Safety Institute. Shikar-Safari is a conservation-based organiza tion that presents awards annually to wildlife law enforcement ofcers in all states, provinces and territories in the United States and Canada. The annual award honors a state ofcer whose efforts show outstanding performance and achievement among sworn sh and wildlife law enforcement personnel. It makes me proud to know that people like North are standing up for the traditions and values that are important to us as Floridians, said Jim Harrison, representative for Shikar-Safari. North arrested ve people for drunken boating or driving in 2011 and cited or arrested numerous violators for felonies and misdemeanors, but it is not writing tickets that made him an Ofcer of the Year. North is an exceptionally well-rounded ofcer who consistently uses his skills and knowledge to make quality, FWC core-mission cases on land and water, his supervisors said. He inspires teamwork within his and other FWC squads, and with other agencies local, state and federal. He fully un derstands the value of educating Florida residents and visitors about the states natural resources and boating opportunities, and the laws in place to protect them, and is often the rst to step up to par ticipate in outreach and education events. Ofcer North is proving to be one of the FWCs most talented and capable ofcers. He has abun dant energy and enthusiasm, and demonstrates his passion for being a sh and wildlife ofcer ev ery day, Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement, said. We are both fortunate and proud to have an ofcer of his caliber on the FWC team. North has always had a passion for hunting, the outdoors and law enforcement and dreamed of becoming an FWC ofcer. He said he reached that goal in 2008 when he was hired as an FWC of cer, patrolling the Volusia County portion of the St. Johns River. Prior to joining the FWC, North was a police ofcer with the Daytona Police Department and a deputy with Volusia County Sheriffs Ofce. In 2010, two years after joining the FWC, North transferred to his current position as part of a squad that patrols primarily on land. In his short tenure with the agency, he has become an exem plary ofcer and a leader among his peers. Below are a few examples of his work: He arrested an individual who shot a decoy deer in the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area (WMA). During a night hunting detail, he and a squad mate apprehended and arrested on felony charg es two men who were stealing copper from utility poles in Lake George WMA. North issued citations related to antlerless deer and gopher tortoises, hunting turkey over bait and night hunting. While working a detail in Lake George WMA, he ran the license tag of a hunter parked in the WMA. After checking the registered owner for the appropriate licenses, he noticed the subject was hunting with a guest permit associated with a known convicted felon. North then set up surveil lance and waited until the convicted felon came out of the woods carrying a modern muzzleloader re arm. The individual was arrested for possession of a rearm by a convicted felon. North and his wife, Crystal, have three children: Christopher, 10; Matthieu, four; and Brianna, al most two. He enjoys the outdoors and likes to hunt and sh. But mostly, he says, he loves spending time with his wife and children. Special to the News Bulletin The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is moving ahead on its plan to man age and conserve Florida black bears so they never again are at risk of extinction. With the bear population rebounding from about 300 to 3,000 during the past 40 years, the FWC recognizes Floridas conservation success with bears and recommends the states largest land mammal be removed from the threatened species list. The commissioners discussed on Feb. 9 the draft Florida Black Bear Management Plan, a pro posed black bear conservation rule, and heard public comments and suggestions. Final action on the draft bear management plan and rule was not taken. The commissioners are scheduled to take up a revision of the draft plan and the rule during their June meeting. Pointing out a paragraph in the draft bear plan tracking the fall and rise of Floridas bear population, Commissioner Brian Yablonski said, We had 750,000 people in Florida in 1914, and we had roughly 3,000 bears, and here we are at the last data point in 2002, and weve got 17 million people in 2002 and about 3,000 bears. Thats an amazing suc cess story. I think this is a very positive day. Commissioner Richard Cor bett said, The major focus is how we manage and protect with a major population increase of bears and a major population increase of humans. The draft bear management plan, released Nov. 10, was fol lowed by a two-month period of public input, which included public workshops. Floridians offered feedback at the work shops, online where the draft plan was posted at www.My FWC.com/Bear, and by mailing written comments. About 2,500 comments were received from private citizens and stakeholder groups on the draft plan. The public commented on issues such as updating bear population estimates, reducing human-bear conicts and con tinuing the review of land-use changes impacting bear habitat. Members of the public also expressed opinions on whether to allow bear hunting in Florida and whether taking bears off the states threatened species list would affect bear conservation. Commissioners also gave tentative approval to a proposed FWC rule that would make it unlawful to injure or kill bears, continuing protections similar to the ones granted to bears as a state threatened species. The rule additionally commits the FWC to working with landown ers and regulating agencies to guide future land use to be com patible with objectives of the bear plan. The draft plan proposes: Seven bear management units to reect areas where Flor idas black bear populations are concentrated. The units would offer the opportunity for local input on managing bear popula tions and habitat. For example, the Central BMU, based in Ocala National Forest, has the largest estimated population of about 1,000 bears; the East Panhandle BMU encompasses Apalachico la National Forest, with roughly 600 bears; and the South Central BMU in Glades and Highlands counties has about 175 bears. Creation of Bear Smart Communities in areas of high bear activity. A Bear Smart Community would involve its residents, businesses, public agencies and schools in educat ing people about how to live in bear country and respond ap propriately to human-bear con icts. For example, the U.S. Air Forces Hurlburt Field in Okaloo sa County switched to bear-proof garbage cans and dumpsters, instituted an active education program and trained personnel in appropriate responses to hu man-bear conicts. After two years of these efforts, Hurlburt experienced a 70 percent reduc tion in human-bear conicts. For more information about bears, go to www.MyFWC. com/Bear. March is prime fresh water shing season for many species of sh, be cause bass and bream are getting geared up to hit the shallows. During spring, sunsh such as bass and bluegill move close to shore to nd suit able spawning habitat. Shallow areas (ideally two to six feet deep) with sandy or rm soils and nearby vegetation tend to attract sunsh. Often the same areas are used year after year, because sunsh do best when they construct beds in sheltered areas without too much current and away from prevailing winds (often coves or the north shores of lakes). Beds for both bass and bream are constructed by males, who protect the eggs after the females come for a conjugal visit. Bass typi cally spawn before bluegill, preferring water tempera tures of about 60 to 65 de grees, whereas optimal temperatures for bluegill spawning are around 65 to 80 degrees. Redbreast sunsh, redear sunsh and crappie may also be in the shallows during this time, and normally, pre cede bluegill. Full and new moons generate additional activity. Because bass and bream are especially sus ceptible during the spawn, an emphasis on quick and effective catch-and-release is appropriate for sh that cannot be legally harvest ed (because of size or bag limits). Dont keep sh you intend to release out of the water longer than you can hold your breath, and re lease them as close to the capture point as possible. Florida Fish and Wild life Conservation Com mission freshwater sh eries biologists annually compile information on some of the top shing sites (myfwc.com/shing/ freshwater/sites-forecast/) around the state for bass and bream. Additional lakes in your area with public boat ramp access can be found at public.myfwc.com/LE/ boatramp/public/default. aspx, and many of these provide outstanding rec reational angling as well. The new boat ramp nder is a great way to learn about new opportunities. For instance, you can type in a specic address, city and ZIP code, and a map will appear showing avail able ramps within a given radius. The site lists nearly 1,000 public freshwater boat ramps. About a quar ter of these ramps are owned and maintained by the commission, primar ily using your Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration funds. All of those ramps provide free access. With so many ramps to document and the ef fects of weather and other variables to contend with, the website is an ongoing project. Consequently, the commission cannot guar antee the completeness or accuracy of the informa tion and suggests that you check with local resources to verify conditions prior to planning long trips. The organization is constantly seeking user feedback to provide updates (includ ing site photos) via email to BoatRamps@ MyFWC.com. The Florida Fish and Wild life Conservation Commission oper ates several boatingrelated grant programs, most using restoration funds. Those funds are col lected for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, mostly from excise taxes on sh ing tackle, import duties on yachts, and motorboat fuel taxes. In return, the Fish and Wildlife Service provides grant funds to the states for shery projects, boating access and aquatic education. The program is also known as the DingellJohnson or Wallop-Breaux Act, based on the congres sional sponsors who aug mented the 1937 program in 1950 and substantially enhanced it in 1984. Sub sequent amendments fur ther expanded the use of these funds: 1991, Coastal Wetlands; 1992, Clean Ves sel Program; and 1998, Outreach/Recreational Boating and Fishing Foun dation, Boating Safety, and Boating Infrastructure Grants. The Sport Fish Resto ration fund was created as a user-pays, user-benets program to restore and better manage Americas declining shery resourc es and later to enhance safe recreational boating opportunities. The service apportions funds based on a formula based primarily on land area and the num ber of paid license holders. Florida in 2010 and 2011 re ceived almost $12 million of these funds to reinvest in recreational shing and boating, which provide, respectively, $7.5 billion and 79,000 jobs, and $16.8 billion and 203,000 jobs in economic benets to the state. The bottom line is that restoration fund is behind a great deal of the sport sh management and research activities con ducted in Florida. These funds also provide a threeto-one match for the com missions major boating safety and access (ramps) programs. Without sh ing license fees and these matching federal dollars, the shing and boating opportunities here in the Fishing Capital of the World would be vastly re duced and sh populations depleted.

By RANDY DICKSON email@example.com FORT WALTON BEACH Score one for the small school. The Baker softball team capitalized on eight Choctawhatchee errors as the Gators beat the Indians 6-5 on Monday. In a game that had enough mis t plays to ll out takes from the Bad News Bears movies, it was Baker making the fewest mistakes and coming up with the timely hit or pitch that made the difference. There were no bigger pitches made than the ones Gator pitcher Chassity McCranie threw to strike out Choctaws Shelby Carroll with the bases loaded to end the game. It was not necessarily a complete game, but we came up in some situations when we needed to and capitalized on some mistakes that they made, Gators coach John Carlisle said. Obviously, when you stand in scoring position and have a chance to break the game open thats always tough. As the game goes on you are sweating out wondering if thats going to be enough and you think about the opportunities that you squandered. But we are getting things back together and we are starting to get on a roll and show signs of playing well. Carlisle was talking about the 11 runners the Gators left on base. The thing Ive been preaching to my girls is if they make mistakes we need to capitalize on them, but unfortunately they did the same thing to us, Choctaw coach Grant Keen said. We have a young team right now and the biggest thing we are focusing on is getting better and better every game. Weve really been preaching to these girls not to give up and keep ghting when we do have a bad inning and to keep going. They fought and at the very end we had the bases loaded and two outs with our number four hitter up, but we should have never been there in the rst place because of the errors. It wasnt as if Baker (7-4) was perfect in the eld either. The Gators made seven errors as at times it seemed as if neither team wanted to win the game. Baker jumped in front in the rst inning as Tori Foster singled and later scored on a Choctaw error. Paige Wooley helped the Indians (2-7) tie things up in the bottom of the inning as she reached and scored on Bakers rst two errors. Choctaw scored two in the second to take the lead, but that didnt last long as Baker tied things up in the top of the third. The Indians regained the lead with a run the bottom of the fourth, but again the Gators responded and tied things up in the top of the fth. Baker plated two in the top of the seventh to go in front 6-4, but the seesaw game was far from over. Rikki Runnel led off the Indian seventh with a double and later scored. The Indians loaded the bases, but were unable to push the tying run across as McCranie picked up her sixth strike out of the night to end the game and get the win. Tori Foster and Tori Kilcrease each had two hits for the Gators. Kristen Pierce, who took the tough luck loss in the circle for Choctaw, led the Indians with two hits.

By RANDY DICKSON firstname.lastname@example.org FORT WALTON BEACH Rachel Ryan went 3-for-3 with four runs batted in to help lead Fort Walton Beach to a 10-0 win over Crestview in District 2-6A softball play on Tuesday. The game was called after five innings on the 10-run mercy rule. They played well, Fort Walton Beach coach Andrea Browning said of her teams effort. We had a plan and we executed the plan. We hit the ball well. We played good defense and our pitcher (Rachael Dehlinger) pitched the ball well so Im just happy all the way around. Fort Walton Beach touched Crestview pitcher Kristin Bufkin for eight hits, and five Bulldog errors didnt help Crestview (3-8, 0-7). The Vikings (6-5, 4-1) took a quick 3-0 lead in the first inning as the first three batters reached and scored. Leadoff hitter Jen Phillips was hit by a Bufkin pitch. Jennifer Bazylak was next, reaching on an error. Jaime Phillips singled to score Jen Phillips. It looked like Bufkin would work out of the jam when she struck out Dehlinger and Libby Davis, but Ryan dashed the Bulldog hopes with a two-out single to score Bazylak and Jaime Phillips. Fort Walton Beach broke the game open with a five-run second inning. All of the Viking runs were unearned as the Bulldog defense continued to be shaky behind Bufkin. Ryan continued her big night with her second two-run single in as many innings. Ryans base hit capped the Viking second and scored Dehlinger and Davis after both players had reached on errors. I felt like the first inning we got the nerves out of us and then the rabbit foot falls off in the second inning, Bulldog coach Chris Sweatt said. They scored five runs and they were all unearned. I keep trying to tell them that we arent helping ourselves we are killing ourselves right now. The only positive thing I can tell them is we are getting better offensively, but defensively Ive got to make some changes. Jaime Phillips, who was also a perfect 3-for3 at the plate for the Vikings, singled and later scored on a wild pitch in the fourth. Pinch-hitter Alex Matthews led off the Fort Walton Beach fifth and reached on the final Bulldog error of the night. She later scored on a pinch-hit single by Braya Enriquez to end the game. Dehlinger picked up the complete game win for the Vikings, throwing a two-hitter while striking out four. Shelby Gainer and Ragan Sowell had the Crestview hits.
