The funds were among $142.7 million in expenditures vetoed Tuesday by Gov. Rick Scott prior to his approval of the states $69.9 billion budget. The $1.5 million appropriation would have paid the faculty/staff salaries and operating expenses of the Crestview Center, FAMU President James H. Ammons stated in a Wednesday email. Without the appropriation, FAMU will now evaluate how best to proceed. By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Crestview Mayor David Cadle said he has not yet determined how or where he will search for a replacement for former Crestview Police Chief Brian Mitchell, who was red Tuesday. I havent made a decision how to proceed, Cadle said. I havent made any decision yet whether I will promote someone from within the department or seek someone from outside the city. Under the citys charter, the mayor oversees Crestviews public safety departments, and is granted authority to employ and discharge the chief of police and re departments. Though hiring and ring powers over his department heads rest with him, Cadle said it is his intention to consult with law enforcement experts for advice on the new police chiefs selection process. I would reach out to the law enforcement community to assist me in making these decisions, Cadle said. Mitchell and former police operations head Maj. Joseph Floyd were suspended March 1. Floyd was indicted by a grand jury on a series of charges including racketeering on March 5, and was subsequently arrested and dismissed on March 26. Because Mitchell had been Floyds direct supervisor, he had remained suspended with pay during the investigation. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating Floyd. In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, Cadle stated the investigation has eroded the trust and con dence of the citizens of the city of Crestview. Additionally, this has created a condition of low morale amongst the of cers of the Crestview Police Department.

Additionally, this has created a condition of low morale amongst the of cers of the Crestview Police Saturday, APRIL 21 2012 By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Seven applicants are vying to ll the Crestview City Council seat vacated by Phillip Berezo, who resigned March 26. The applicants include local business owners and a former council president. The field was introduced Monday evening at a special meeting of the city council, during which each application was verified. To meet city charter requirements, applicants must reside within the city limits and must be registered to vote. The former qualification disqualified one applicant within minutes of the start of the verification process. Former council member and council president Robert Bob Allen was among the hopefuls whose application was verified by City Clerk Betsy Roy. A retired Air Force officer, Allen lost his council seat when Berezo was elected to the position in March 2011. I think we know he lives in the city, Roy joked, but confirmed Allens residency nonetheless. Other applicants include business owner Landrum Edwards, who frequently addresses the council on the need for a bypass highway around Crestview, and Shannon Hayes, president of the Carver-Hill Memorial and Historical Society. Hayes is also president of the city Board of Adjustment. Lifelong Crestview resident Thomas Gordon, who operates the local air conditioning service founded by his father as well as a martial arts academy in Crestview, has also appeared before the council. He has questioned the city mandate requiring residents who receive city water and sewer service to also pay for garbage collection services they may not need. Rounding out the field are William Bill Cox, the district sales manager for Dietz Supply Company, and Joe Blocker, a retired commercial construction project manager and Sunday school teacher at Woodlawn Baptist Church. Applicant Michael Humphrey was immediately disqualified when Roy verified that his address was outside of the city limits. The council will hold a special public meeting at 6 p.m. April 30 to interview the verified applicants. The applicant selected to finish the remaining three years of Berezos term might be announced after the interviews, council members said. If not, the announcement will be made at the councils regular May 14 meeting. By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Earth Day may be tomorrow, but it came almost a week early for 16 pre-school children and 13 adults when the Crestview Public Librarys Story Time program paid a visit to the citys McMahon Environmental Center. There were native shrubs and trees to examine, sh to spot and lots of stuffed regional critters to encounter in the centers museum. Escorted by youth librarian Heather Nitzel, the kids got a guided tour of the center from Senior Forester Maria Wilson of the Florida Forest Service and retired forester and state forestry poet laureate John McMahon, after whom the center is named, during their April 16 excursion. Theyre never too young to start learning about our environment, McMahon said as he watched the children scamper after Wilson and exclaim at each new discovery.

Sen. Greg Evers, R-Bak er, said, Some money will be transferred to FAMU that will cover that $1.5 mil lion for this year and funds will be put back in as a re curring expense for next year. So it will not hold up the project; thats the bot tom line. Some $9.5 million in ren ovations are underway on the historic Alatex build ing in downtown Crestview that will house the FAMU satellite campus. The work will be completed prior to the schools opening in Au gust, ofcials have said. The school will offer a degree that leads to a phar macy license. Plans also call for additional courses later that lead to masters and doctorate degrees in public health and health care management, as well as health administration, occupational therapy and physical therapy. Crestview is within a 30 to 40 minute drive of ve state colleges and the Uni versity of West Florida, Ammons wrote in his email. The plan is for FAMU to admit graduates from those colleges directly into its Crestview pharmacy program. Former state Sen. Durell Peaden, an advocate for the school, said in a telephone interview that he spoke with Ammons Wednesday morning at a breakfast the two attended together in Tallahassee. Everything is going to proceed as planned, Peaden said. In fact, the school has received 119 applications from students who would like to enter the schools rst class, Peaden said. Many of those are from Crestview, Peaden said of the applicants. The director of FAMUs pharmacy school, Dr. Mar gareth Lacrose-Pierre, told members of the Crestview City Council last month that 30 students will com prise the rst class, with 30 additional students added each year. The school is ex pected to reach maximum capacity in four years, with 120 students enrolled. The college is working on developing afliations with local and regional medical facilities, and has already penned agree ments with the Veterans Administration, the hospi tal at Eglin Air Force Base, and Sacred Heart and Bap tist hospitals in Pensacola, Lacrose-Pierre said. The University has planned to begin rotat ing advanced pharmacy students to perform clini cal rotations in area retail pharmacies, hospitals and health clinics as early as this summer, Ammons said in his email. POLICE CHIEF from page A1 the citizens of Crestview, it is essential to seek new leadership for the Crest view Police Department. Since Mitchells sus pension, the citys police department has been headed by Maj. Kenneth Bundrick, a 25-year vet eran of the force and a Crestview area native. Whether he would make Bundricks appointment permanent is something Cadle said he has not yet decided. Though Cadle said he will soon formulate a plan to select Mitchells permanent successor, the process of terminating the former chief may not be entirely over. There is an appeal process that every em ployee is allowed to have, and that appeal hasnt come before the council yet, council member Ben Iannucci said. I, and the rest of the council, will probably sit down with the mayor and he will explain the process (that led to Mitchells dismissal). The process has to go through the proper channels be fore its finalized. Mitchell declined to comment for this story, and has not indicated if he would appeal his termina tion. By city employee pol icy, he would have to first pursue an appeal through the city clerk before com ing before the council. He has not indicated if he might pursue legal action against the city. I dont know if he is go ing to appeal but we have to wait for the process to run its course, Iannucci said. When youre in the woods, what are some things you look for? Wil son asked during an intro duction to the center in the covered pavilion. Snakes! a young voice called out. More snakes! an adult voice followed. Well, when I go out in the woods, Im not only looking for snakes and spiders and holes I might step in, Im also looking for treasures, Wilson said, holding up several samples of oddly shaped lighter wood she found in local woods. This one looks kind of like a Klingon battle ship, she said, a Star Trek reference that may have soared over younger heads but drew laughs from the adults. At the fish pond Mc Mahon distributed hand fuls of fish food that drew the bright orange goldfish over to the group as sever al kids tossed the food into the pond. Pausing at a bald cypress tree, the group was surprised to learn cypress saplings can be grown from cuttings. The scent of the centers red cedar trees drew smiles from each child who sniffed at it. Even though the kids were learning exciting new things about nature, they had fun at the same time. Karlee Meeks, 3, paused to sit in the crook of a tree, carefully supported by her grandmother, Anita Kolb. What might be lurking in a shady, dark fountain pond attracted the curious Elliot Chavez, Jordan Orndorff and Haylee Brown. They are having so much fun, Nitzel said. We love coming over here. The library has had the most dependable group year after year, McMahon said. Heather is really serious about introducing kids to nature. The more we understand about na ture, the more we under stand about ourselves. Get em started early, thats the thing, Wilson said.

In the press release, C/CPT Joshua Grif tts of Baker Junior ROTC Battalion S-5, states, This inspection is very important in that it is what gives the unit a ranking. Our current ranking is Honor Unit with Distinction, the highest ranking possible. Our hope is to maintain that ranking by doing exceptionally well in this years inspection. These inspections occur every three years, so the ranking we earn is the one that the battalion will hold until the next formal inspection. One major part of this inspection is the community involvement of the JROTC program, and we would like to thank all of the various organizations that held events and invited us to come help them. We have done various color guards, ag raising ceremonies, and other meaningful tasks for events all over Okaloosa and Santa Rosa County. We would also like to thank all of the parents and other adults who have helped this program thrive the past few years. Without you we might not even be where we are today.

Crestview News Bulletin | A7 Saturday, April 21, 2012 When I was 18 years old and had nished high school, I left home and went to Nashville, Tenn., to go to a technical school and live my life the way I wanted. I lived a wicked life away from God. I drank, I smoked, I went out with wild women, and I went to wild parties. Then one day I found myself in a group at school that had this one guy who was a Christian. I worked hard at trying to get him to cuss, swear and laugh at dirty jokes, but nothing worked. Jim asked me to go to church with him. Week after week he would continue to ask me to go to church with him. Little did I know that the Holy Spirit was working on me. Having been brought up in church, I was starting to be bothered by my lifestyle. It was like a haunting. Finally, I did go to church with Jim. Sunday after Sunday I went to church with Jim. It was the third Sunday in March 1970, a testimony service. After the service there was an altar call. I got up and ran to the altar. There is a great joy in the forgiveness of sins. In Psalms 32:1-5, David proclaims that a happy man is blessed when his transgressions have been forgiven, sins are covered, iniquity is no longer charged to us and our spirit is free from guile [deceit]. We live in an era where God is allowing us to partake of His great grace and mercy. If we take advantage of this great offering that God has, we shall be blessed. Paul quotes from Psalm 32 about Davids experience in Romans 4:6. Just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works, Paul said, Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin. The misery of guilt One has to either be ignorant or hardened or both to be comfortable with guilt. This is noted in I Timothy 1:13: Although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. For some, it is possible to have a seared conscience. You are not bothered about your lifestyle, your sins. I Timothy 4, verses 1 and 2 state, Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron. On the other hand, one with knowledge and a tender conscience can be miserable while he has guilt feelings. This person knows and cares that sin separates him from God, as in Isaiah 59:1, verses 1 and 2: Behold, the Lords hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear. This same person knows and cares about the ultimate wages of sin: For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23). This person knows and cares about the effect his sin must have on God, as stated in Ephesians 4:30, And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. This person realizes that God created him and wants to bless him, as in John 3:16: For God gave His Son Jesus Christ to die for us to pay the price of sin and give unto us eternal life. Restoring joy Notice that in Psalm 32, verse 5 (I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, I will confess my transgressions to the Lord, and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah), David enjoyed forgiveness only after he acknowledged and confessed his sin. Forgiveness from God is always conditional. David states it perfectly in Psalm 51:1-4. Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your loving kindness; according to the multitude of your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned, and done this evil in your sight that you may be found just when you speak, and blameless when you judge. In verse 4, David states that he had sinned against God only. From God only could he find forgiveness, but he had to acknowledge his sin, confess his sin and then God could forgive and restore joy: But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, his son, cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness). (I John 1:7-9) After God has forgiven us, we must forgive others. For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:14-15. Then Peter came to Him and said, Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times? Jesus said to him, I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. Matthew 18:21 and 22. Others have experienced the joy of forgiveness. Do you want to enjoy the blessedness of forgiveness? Do you desire to experience the joy of forgiveness? Then meet the conditions of forgiveness today. The Rev. Albert Corey, MCC, is pastor of Oak Ridge Assembly of God in Crestview, located at 5297 Shoffner Blvd. The church phone number is 682-8811.

Crestview News Bulletin | A9 Saturday, April 21, 2012 6512032 SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN Jeff Teasdale, Worshipful Master of Concord Lodge No. 50, presented a check to Alma Roberts rst grade class at Northwood Elementary in support of the Adopt a Classroom program. By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com When Shoal River Mid dle School students start the 2012-13 school year on Aug. 20, more than 200 Mustangs might not be studying in a traditional classroom setting. Shoal River and Okaloosa Coun ty School District adminis trators have embraced the schools new Mustang Learning Community concept. The program grew from the need to raise academic performance, particularly for kids facing economic or demographic challenges, while offering education that more closely mirrors real world challenges. In addition, the program simultaneously addresses issues such as bullying and cliques, administra tors said. Where this started from was, way back last summer, we were looking for ways to make learning gains in yearly progress in groups that warrant it; for example, kids who were lower level on the FCAT or kids from lower economic backgrounds, Shoal River Principal Paul Whidden said. We looked at ethnicity, we looked at everything. We searched for peo ple who had similar demo graphics as ourselves that had made learning gains. We visited other schools and brought back ideas people in the Panhandle had done over the years. Each of the learning communitys 22-student classes, called teams, will be multiage, with fth, sixth and seventh grade students studying proj ect-based lessons, called quests, together. You take a theme and you build a core around the theme: language arts, social studies and sci ence, Whidden explained. Math is going to be a little bit independent of the oth er three courses. Each team will work on the same projects, though its students may work on different components de pending on their age. The standards theyre going to be taking are go ing to be the same, but theyll work age-appro priately, Whidden said. It will lend itself to peer mentoring. By having students of diverse backgrounds, grades and ages study ing shoulder to shoulder, Whidden said many social problems that arise in schools will be lessened. Multiage classrooms are already nothing new, Whidden said. Right now sometimes you have kids taking ad vanced classes with older kids. That socialization re ally helps, Whidden said. When theyre all going together, it becomes a pro tective thing. It helps with the whole bullying thing and the pecking order thing. Working together in a truly diversied commu nity, students create a cul ture of acceptance and ex cellence without boundar ies, learning to rely on, and assist their team-mem bers toward success, a media release from school superintendent Dr. Alexis Tibbetts stated. The Mustang Learning Community will be open to any Shoal River student and is diverse in gen der, academic ability, and learning styles, the re lease states. Students may apply for one of the 220 places in the rst years pilot program, Whidden said, and would participate in the learning community on a volunteer basis. Were not going to ex clude anybody. Were go ing to include all levels of kids, he added. Students in the learn ing community would not be excluded from elective programs offered by the school, as well as afterschool co-curricular ac tivities such as sports and student clubs, administra tors stressed. The schedule will be built with exibility, allow ing students the oppor tunity to participate in all SRMS elective programs including band, chorus and construction, the release stated. All lessons are en riched with elective activi ties with special emphasis on ne and performing arts, and technology. Additionally, members of the Crestview business and professional commu nity will be encouraged to contribute their real-world expertise to learning com munity quests. Teachers, local busi ness members, and com munity stakeholders play key roles in the completion of each quest, the release states, helping students develop marketable skills including, teamwork, problem solving, interac tional skills, oral communi cation, listening, personal and career development, creative thinking, leader ship, writing, goal setting and motivation. Whidden said he and his staff decided not to expand the learning community concept to the entire school during its rst year be cause it is such an unusual approach to education. Its so different. We live in a military community; were not sure if we wanted to go whole school, Whid den said. When kids move in, its so nontraditional and some kids may want to go to a more traditional school. Its a great program and I am proud of Paul and his staff for initiating it, Tibbetts said.

SP O RTS www.crestviewbulletin.com Saturday, April 21, 2012 Page 12 By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com FORT WALTON BEACH Crestviews Ashley Adams scored on a bases-loaded, ineld single off the bat of Gabby Thomas with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning to give the Bulldog softball team a 1-0 win over Choctawhatchee in the District 2-6A Tournament opener at the Fort Walton Beach Softball Complex. Im just glad to help our team out, and its a good win for us, a happy Thomas said moments after delivering the gamewinning hit. Crestview (14-12) lost to defending state champion Niceville Tuesday in the tournament semi nals. Choctaw ends the season with a 3-19 record that included nine one-run losses. Just as the nal score indicates, the game was dominated by pitching. Choctaws Kristyn Pierce took the hard-luck loss, giving up just six hits and striking out two. Crestview sophomore Kristin Bufkin was slightly more impressive, striking out six Indian batters while giving up just ve hits. Bufkin has come into her own the last two or three weeks, Bulldog coach Chris Sweatt said. Shes just a sophomore, so thats a plus for us, not only right now but for the future. Their pitcher has done a great job against us. They beat us at their place in extra innings, and we beat them at our place in the bottom of the seventh and we had to do the same thing here. Its just a battle between us and Choctaw, I guess. The Bulldogs managed to scrape together the games only run when Adams started things off with a one-out single. Things looked to be going Choctaws way when Indian shortstop Sydney Oliver made the defensive play of the game, diving to her right to rob Ragan Sowell of what seemed to be a base hit. Instead the Bulldogs were down to their last out before the game would head to extra innings. Molly Woodward singled up the middle past outstretched Choctaw second baseman Paige Wooley, and Parys Alexander was hit by a pitch to load the bases, setting up Thomas heroics. With the pitchers dominating the pace of the game, every mistake and big play was magni ed. The Indians loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the third but came away without a run as Sowell, the Bulldog third baseman, threw Rikki Rummel out at home plate as Katie Hass reached on a elders choice. The inning ended with Bufkin striking out Chelsea Shultz. Choctaw threatened again in the fth, but was unable to score. Rummel was thrown out at the plate by Crestview shortstop Shelby Gainer as Hass was safe on a elders choice. With one out, Wooley, who reached on an in eld single, was at third and Hass was at second, with Taylor Campbell at the plate. Campbell lifted a y ball to Woodward in left eld that would have scored Wooley and moved Hass to third, but Sweatt appealed the play, arguing that Hass left second base early. After a quick conference, the umpires ruled in Crestviews behalf as the Bulldogs got the double play to end the inning. Our pitcher, Kristyn Pierce, shut them down, Indian coach Grant Keen said. Everything was working with the places I wanted her to go with the ball. They were popping them up or striking out, whatever I needed them to do, and our defense locked it down. When the defenses arent making any errors, its going to come down to that one play, and unfortunately we were on that side. District baseball starts Monday By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER Sparked by a sevenrun rst inning, Holmes County beat Baker 9-1 in the semi nals of the District 2-1A softball tournament Tuesday. Holmes County (19-5) faced Jay for the district championship Thursday. Baker ends the season with a 15-8 record. The Blue Devils sent 12 batters to the plate in the rst inning and touched Gator pitcher Chassity McCranie for ve hits to go along with a pair of walks, a hit batter and a Gator error. Things probably would have been worse if two Holmes County batters had not been called out for being out of the box when delivering what would have been base hits. Ciara Jones had the big hit of the rst inning, a two-run double to score Jenna Sellers and Courtney Reeves and cap the big inning. McCranie and the Gators settled down after the rst inning to hold the Blue Devils to ve more hits and two more runs the rest of the way. But the Baker hitters never could get untracked against Holmes pitcher Sarah Pippin. Pippin had nine strikeouts through three innings and nished the night fanning 15 Gators, while holding Baker to four hits and the one run that came in the third inning. Macie Wilde led off the Baker third with a base hit. Wilde moved into scoring position, as Tori Foster was safe on an error. Wilde scored on a Tory Kilcrease single. The Gators had an opportunity to score more runs in the third as they left the bases loaded to end the inning. Baker also left two runners on base in the rst and sixth innings. The Blue Devils scored a run in the fth and nished things off with a run in the seventh. Wilde, Kilcrease, Tori Foster and Holly Stanley each had a hit for the Gators. By PAT FLYNN 315-4421 | @PatFnwfdn p ynn@nwfdailynews FORT WALTON BEACH The Niceville softball team snatched victory from deep within the jaws of defeat Tuesday, pulling out a 4-3 win over Crestview in the District 2-6A seminals at the Fort Walton Beach Softball Complex. The top-seeded Eagles trailed No. 4 seed Crestview 3-2 in the seventh and were down to their nal out before Courtney Adams singled to bring up lead-off hitter Stephanie Hartness. Hartness, who had uncharacteristically been held hitless (0 for 3) in the contest to that point, ripped a two-strike pitch to right eld. Bulldog right elder Molly Woodward charged the ball, hoping to try and get the out at rst, something she had done all season long with success and twice in Tuesdays game. But the ball rolled under Woodwards outstretched glove, and Adams came around to tie the game while Eagles head coach Danny Hensley violently waved Hartness home, where she was easily safe and Niceville advanced just barely with a 4-3 win. I was just in shock because (Woodward) had been throwing out people left and right, Hartness said. I thought, I haul to rst, then two, then Coach Danny was waving Crestview (14-13) played solid all night long, led by Kristin Bufkin in the circle and backed up by a defense that played mistake-free all night long. The loss, as gut-wrenching as it was, was a big moment for coach Chris Sweatts program. I told them you played toe-totoe with one of the best teams in the country and had them beat for 6 2/3, Sweatt said. Niceville (24-2) jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the rst, but Crestview slowly clawed its way back, scoring a run in the top of the third before Ashley Adams drove in Diana Patricelli to tie the game at 2-2 and Woodward scored Patricelli on a sac y to give the Bulldogs the lead. Niceville played Mosley on Thursday at Fort Walton Beach Softball Complex for the District 26A title.

BULLDOGS NIP INDIANS By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com The Crestview baseball team looks to defend its district title as district tournaments get under way Monday. The Bulldogs open play in the District 2-6A tournament as the No. 4 seed and will play Niceville, the No. 5 seed, at 7 p.m. at Fort Walton Beach. The winner of the game faces No. 1 seed Mosley at 4 p.m. Tuesday in the tournament seminals. Fort Walton Beach and Choctawhatchee play in the other semi nal game. The championship game is set for 7 p.m. Thursday at Fort Walton Beach. Bulldog coach Tim Gillis is optimistic heading into Mondays game against the Eagles. We feel good about it going into the tournament, he said. Obviously you would rather be a higher seed to keep you from having to play a third game. But the bottom line is youve just got to play and survive. I think we are all grouped in there pretty tight and competitive. Its going to be a play here or a play there that probably decides each game and therefore gets you in the playoffs. Gillis likes the way his pitching staff led by Kameron Miller, Dylan Lee and Roman Donofro sets up for the tournament. Weve got those guys (Miller, Lee and Donofro) ready for us, plus weve got some other guys that have thrown a lot of innings for us during the season, he said. We like where we are pitching-wise. We just hope to swing it and get it where they aint. Baker is either the seventh or eighth seed in the District 2-1A tournament. The Gators open the tournament Monday at 4 p.m. against fourth seed Northview. The title game for the tournament is set for 7 p.m. Thursday. Laurel Hill, the fourth seed in the District 1-1A tournament, hosts Bethlehem at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The rest of the tournament will be played at Malone. If the Hoboes win Tuesday, they will play top seed Paxton at 4 p.m. Thursday in Malone. The tournament championship game is set for 6 p.m. Friday. We are playing pretty good right now, and Im pretty happy, Hobo coach Ronnie Smith said. With Boomer (Simmons) and Kyle (Slingerland) throwing, we have a chance if the team shows up. If they show up and have the intensity and want to, we will see how it goes. I think the team is hungry and wants another chance at Paxton, but we have to win on Tuesday rst.

The funds were among $142.7 million in expenditures vetoed Tuesday by Gov. Rick Scott prior to his approval of the states $69.9 billion budget. The $1.5 million appropriation would have paid the faculty/staff salaries and operating expenses of the Crestview Center, FAMU President James H. Ammons stated in a Wednesday email. Without the appropriation, FAMU will now evaluate how best to proceed. By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Crestview Mayor David Cadle said he has not yet determined how or where he will search for a replacement for former Crestview Police Chief Brian Mitchell, who was red Tuesday. I havent made a decision how to proceed, Cadle said. I havent made any decision yet whether I will promote someone from within the department or seek someone from outside the city. Under the citys charter, the mayor oversees Crestviews public safety departments, and is granted authority to employ and discharge the chief of police and re departments. Though hiring and ring powers over his department heads rest with him, Cadle said it is his intention to consult with law enforcement experts for advice on the new police chiefs selection process. I would reach out to the law enforcement community to assist me in making these decisions, Cadle said. Mitchell and former police operations head Maj. Joseph Floyd were suspended March 1. Floyd was indicted by a grand jury on a series of charges including racketeering on March 5, and was subsequently arrested and dismissed on March 26. Because Mitchell had been Floyds direct supervisor, he had remained suspended with pay during the investigation. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating Floyd. In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, Cadle stated the investigation has eroded the trust and con dence of the citizens of the city of Crestview. Additionally, this has created a condition of low morale amongst the of cers of the Crestview Police Department.

The applicants include local business owners and a former council president. The field was introduced Monday evening at a special meeting of the city council, during which each application was verified. To meet city charter requirements, applicants must reside within the city limits and must be registered to vote. The former qualification disqualified one applicant within minutes of the start of the verification process. Former council member and council president Robert Bob Allen was among the hopefuls whose application was verified by City Clerk Betsy Roy. A retired Air Force officer, Allen lost his council seat when Berezo was elected to the position in March 2011. I think we know he lives in the city, Roy joked, but confirmed Allens residency nonetheless. Other applicants include business owner Landrum Edwards, who frequently addresses the council on the need for a bypass highway around Crestview, and Shannon Hayes, president of the Carver-Hill Memorial and Historical Society. Hayes is also president of the city Board of Adjustment. Lifelong Crestview resident Thomas Gordon, who operates the local air conditioning service founded by his father as well as a martial arts academy in Crestview, has also appeared before the council. He has questioned the city mandate requiring residents who receive city water and sewer service to also pay for garbage collection services they may not need. Rounding out the field are William Bill Cox, the district sales manager for Dietz Supply Company, and Joe Blocker, a retired commercial construction project manager and Sunday school teacher at Woodlawn Baptist Church. Applicant Michael Humphrey was immediately disqualified when Roy verified that his address was outside of the city limits. The council will hold a special public meeting at 6 p.m. April 30 to interview the verified applicants. The applicant selected to finish the remaining three years of Berezos term might be announced after the interviews, council members said. If not, the announcement will be made at the councils regular May 14 meeting.By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Earth Day may be tomorrow, but it came almost a week early for 16 pre-school children and 13 adults when the Crestview Public Librarys Story Time program paid a visit to the citys McMahon Environmental Center.

Sen. Greg Evers, R-Baker, said, Some money will be transferred to FAMU that will cover that $1.5 million for this year and funds will be put back in as a recurring expense for next year. So it will not hold up the project; thats the bottom line. Some $9.5 million in renovations are underway on the historic Alatex building in downtown Crestview that will house the FAMU satellite campus. The work will be completed prior to the schools opening in August, ofcials have said. The school will offer a degree that leads to a pharmacy license. Plans also call for additional courses later that lead to masters and doctorate degrees in public health and health care management, as well as health administration, occupational therapy and physical therapy. Crestview is within a 30 to 40 minute drive of ve state colleges and the University of West Florida, Ammons wrote in his email. The plan is for FAMU to admit graduates from those colleges directly into its Crestview pharmacy program. Former state Sen. Durell Peaden, an advocate for the school, said in a telephone interview that he spoke with Ammons Wednesday morning at a breakfast the two attended together in Tallahassee. Everything is going to proceed as planned, Peaden said. In fact, the school has received 119 applications from students who would like to enter the schools rst class, Peaden said. Many of those are from Crestview, Peaden said of the applicants. The director of FAMUs pharmacy school, Dr. Margareth Lacrose-Pierre, told members of the Crestview City Council last month that 30 students will comprise the rst class, with 30 additional students added each year. The school is expected to reach maximum capacity in four years, with 120 students enrolled. The college is working on developing afliations with local and regional medical facilities, and has already penned agreements with the Veterans Administration, the hospital at Eglin Air Force Base, and Sacred Heart and Baptist hospitals in Pensacola, Lacrose-Pierre said. The University has planned to begin rotating advanced pharmacy students to perform clinical rotations in area retail pharmacies, hospitals and health clinics as early as this summer, Ammons said in his email. POLICE CHIEF from page A1the citizens of Crestview, it is essential to seek new leadership for the Crestview Police Department. Since Mitchells suspension, the citys police department has been headed by Maj. Kenneth Bundrick, a 25-year veteran of the force and a Crestview area native. Whether he would make Bundricks appointment permanent is something Cadle said he has not yet decided. Though Cadle said he will soon formulate a plan to select Mitchells permanent successor, the process of terminating the former chief may not be entirely over. There is an appeal process that every employee is allowed to have, and that appeal hasnt come before the council yet, council member Ben Iannucci said. I, and the rest of the council, will probably sit down with the mayor and he will explain the process (that led to Mitchells dismissal). The process has to go through the proper channels before its finalized. Mitchell declined to comment for this story, and has not indicated if he would appeal his termination. By city employee policy, he would have to first pursue an appeal through the city clerk before coming before the council. He has not indicated if he might pursue legal action against the city. I dont know if he is going to appeal but we have to wait for the process to run its course, Iannucci said. When youre in the woods, what are some things you look for? Wilson asked during an introduction to the center in the covered pavilion. Snakes! a young voice called out. More snakes! an adult voice followed. Well, when I go out in the woods, Im not only looking for snakes and spiders and holes I might step in, Im also looking for treasures, Wilson said, holding up several samples of oddly shaped lighter wood she found in local woods. This one looks kind of like a Klingon battleship, she said, a Star Trek reference that may have soared over younger heads but drew laughs from the adults. At the fish pond McMahon distributed handfuls of fish food that drew the bright orange goldfish over to the group as several kids tossed the food into the pond. Pausing at a bald cypress tree, the group was surprised to learn cypress saplings can be grown from cuttings. The scent of the centers red cedar trees drew smiles from each child who sniffed at it. Even though the kids were learning exciting new things about nature, they had fun at the same time. Karlee Meeks, 3, paused to sit in the crook of a tree, carefully supported by her grandmother, Anita Kolb. What might be lurking in a shady, dark fountain pond attracted the curious Elliot Chavez, Jordan Orndorff and Haylee Brown. They are having so much fun, Nitzel said. We love coming over here. The library has had the most dependable group year after year, McMahon said. Heather is really serious about introducing kids to nature. The more we understand about nature, the more we understand about ourselves. Get em started early, thats the thing, Wilson said.

One major part of this inspection is the community involvement of the JROTC program, and we would like to thank all of the various organizations that held events and invited us to come help them. We have done various color guards, ag raising ceremonies, and other meaningful tasks for events all over Okaloosa and Santa Rosa County. We would also like to thank all of the parents and other adults who have helped this program thrive the past few years. Without you we might not even be where we are today.By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Members of the Dogwood Garden Club brought their green thumbs to Carrington Manor on East James Lee Boulevard on a recent bright spring day, and in the twinkling of an eye a pretty collection of vincas were nodding in the sunshine. The club members arranged the owers in a circular bed around the facilitys front lamppost. They take the sun, and theyre going to get it, club member Judy Rice said. We try to plant annuals, member Sarah Petty explained. We put in pansies in the fall. With the help of aides, Carrington Manor residents Glensie Devore and Roxie Buchannon came out to observe the garden club members at work and were pleased with the result. They sure are pretty, Buchannon said, admiring the little pink and red blossoms that glistened with drops of water following a thorough soaking by club member Eva Fountains garden hose. Their work at Carrington Manor complete, the Dogwood Garden Club members packed up their tools and disbursed to their respective vehicles.

Also nominated were Jodi Maker, a Niceville High School advanced sciences teacher, and Duscha Ross, a fth grade reading, science and language arts teacher at Mary Esther Elementary School. Ross was awarded the top honor at the Teacher of the Year Banquet at the Emerald Coast Conference Center on Feb. 23. To our nalists, I thank you, superintendent of schools, Dr. Alexis Tibbetts, said at the event. You are excellent teachers and you represent all of the amazing teachers in this room that make every profession in America possible. The school board members and I appreciate everything that you do, every day, and I thank you. Chavers is a ve-year veteran of Shoal River Middle School and its predecessor, the former Richbourg Middle School, according to Shoal River language arts and journalism teacher Pauline Buis. Before his middle school career, Chavers taught two years at Crestview High and the Okaloosa Applied Technology Center. For seven years he was an educator at the Department of Juvenile Justices Okaloosa Youth Academy, Buis said. He is retired from the U.S. Air Force, where as a master instructor he was qualied to teach all systems of the F-15 aircraft. Mr. Chavers teaches the only middle school shop program in the state of Florida, Buis said. His goal is to get the construction programs in all of the middle schools in the state.Two bottlebrush trees are in full broom near the Crestview Arbys on South Ferdon Boulevard.

Crestview News Bulletin | A7Saturday, April 21, 2012When I was 18 years old and had nished high school, I left home and went to Nashville, Tenn., to go to a technical school and live my life the way I wanted. I lived a wicked life away from God. I drank, I smoked, I went out with wild women, and I went to wild parties. Then one day I found myself in a group at school that had this one guy who was a Christian. I worked hard at trying to get him to cuss, swear and laugh at dirty jokes, but nothing worked. Jim asked me to go to church with him. Week after week he would continue to ask me to go to church with him. Little did I know that the Holy Spirit was working on me. Having been brought up in church, I was starting to be bothered by my lifestyle. It was like a haunting. Finally, I did go to church with Jim. Sunday after Sunday I went to church with Jim. It was the third Sunday in March 1970, a testimony service. After the service there was an altar call. I got up and ran to the altar. There is a great joy in the forgiveness of sins. In Psalms 32:1-5, David proclaims that a happy man is blessed when his transgressions have been forgiven, sins are covered, iniquity is no longer charged to us and our spirit is free from guile [deceit]. We live in an era where God is allowing us to partake of His great grace and mercy. If we take advantage of this great offering that God has, we shall be blessed. Paul quotes from Psalm 32 about Davids experience in Romans 4:6. Just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works, Paul said, Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.The misery of guiltOne has to either be ignorant or hardened or both to be comfortable with guilt. This is noted in I Timothy 1:13: Although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. For some, it is possible to have a seared conscience. You are not bothered about your lifestyle, your sins. I Timothy 4, verses 1 and 2 state, Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron. On the other hand, one with knowledge and a tender conscience can be miserable while he has guilt feelings. This person knows and cares that sin separates him from God, as in Isaiah 59:1, verses 1 and 2: Behold, the Lords hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear. This same person knows and cares about the ultimate wages of sin: For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23). This person knows and cares about the effect his sin must have on God, as stated in Ephesians 4:30, And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. This person realizes that God created him and wants to bless him, as in John 3:16: For God gave His Son Jesus Christ to die for us to pay the price of sin and give unto us eternal life. Restoring joyNotice that in Psalm 32, verse 5 (I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, I will confess my transgressions to the Lord, and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah), David enjoyed forgiveness only after he acknowledged and confessed his sin. Forgiveness from God is always conditional. David states it perfectly in Psalm 51:1-4. Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your loving kindness; according to the multitude of your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned, and done this evil in your sight that you may be found just when you speak, and blameless when you judge. In verse 4, David states that he had sinned against God only. From God only could he find forgiveness, but he had to acknowledge his sin, confess his sin and then God could forgive and restore joy: But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, his son, cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness). (I John 1:7-9) After God has forgiven us, we must forgive others. For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:14-15. Then Peter came to Him and said, Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times? Jesus said to him, I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. Matthew 18:21 and 22. Others have experienced the joy of forgiveness. Do you want to enjoy the blessedness of forgiveness? Do you desire to experience the joy of forgiveness? Then meet the conditions of forgiveness today. The Rev.

Crestview News Bulletin | A9Saturday, April 21, 2012 6512032 SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETINJeff Teasdale, Worshipful Master of Concord Lodge No. 50, presented a check to Alma Roberts rst grade class at Northwood Elementary in support of the Adopt a Classroom program.By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com When Shoal River Middle School students start the 2012-13 school year on Aug. 20, more than 200 Mustangs might not be studying in a traditional classroom setting. Shoal River and Okaloosa County School District administrators have embraced the schools new Mustang Learning Community concept. The program grew from the need to raise academic performance, particularly for kids facing economic or demographic challenges, while offering education that more closely mirrors real world challenges. In addition, the program simultaneously addresses issues such as bullying and cliques, administrators said. Where this started from was, way back last summer, we were looking for ways to make learning gains in yearly progress in groups that warrant it; for example, kids who were lower level on the FCAT or kids from lower economic backgrounds, Shoal River Principal Paul Whidden said. We looked at ethnicity, we looked at everything. We searched for people who had similar demographics as ourselves that had made learning gains. We visited other schools and brought back ideas people in the Panhandle had done over the years. Each of the learning communitys 22-student classes, called teams, will be multiage, with fth, sixth and seventh grade students studying project-based lessons, called quests, together. You take a theme and you build a core around the theme: language arts, social studies and science, Whidden explained. Math is going to be a little bit independent of the other three courses. Each team will work on the same projects, though its students may work on different components depending on their age. The standards theyre going to be taking are going to be the same, but theyll work age-appropriately, Whidden said. It will lend itself to peer mentoring. By having students of diverse backgrounds, grades and ages studying shoulder to shoulder, Whidden said many social problems that arise in schools will be lessened. Multiage classrooms are already nothing new, Whidden said. Right now sometimes you have kids taking advanced classes with older kids. That socialization really helps, Whidden said. When theyre all going together, it becomes a protective thing. It helps with the whole bullying thing and the pecking order thing. Working together in a truly diversied community, students create a culture of acceptance and excellence without boundaries, learning to rely on, and assist their team-members toward success, a media release from school superintendent Dr. Alexis Tibbetts stated. The Mustang Learning Community will be open to any Shoal River student and is diverse in gender, academic ability, and learning styles, the release states. Students may apply for one of the 220 places in the rst years pilot program, Whidden said, and would participate in the learning community on a volunteer basis. Were not going to exclude anybody. Were going to include all levels of kids, he added. Students in the learning community would not be excluded from elective programs offered by the school, as well as afterschool co-curricular activities such as sports and student clubs, administrators stressed. The schedule will be built with exibility, allowing students the opportunity to participate in all SRMS elective programs including band, chorus and construction, the release stated. All lessons are enriched with elective activities with special emphasis on ne and performing arts, and technology. Additionally, members of the Crestview business and professional community will be encouraged to contribute their real-world expertise to learning community quests. Teachers, local business members, and community stakeholders play key roles in the completion of each quest, the release states, helping students develop marketable skills including, teamwork, problem solving, interactional skills, oral communication, listening, personal and career development, creative thinking, leadership, writing, goal setting and motivation. Whidden said he and his staff decided not to expand the learning community concept to the entire school during its rst year because it is such an unusual approach to education. Its so different. We live in a military community; were not sure if we wanted to go whole school, Whidden said. When kids move in, its so nontraditional and some kids may want to go to a more traditional school. Its a great program and I am proud of Paul and his staff for initiating it, Tibbetts said. From Staff Reports Four Davidson Middle School students competed at the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair April 3-5 in Lakeland. Sarah Craig, Hannah Kelsey, Alexandra McCallum and Kelvin Williamson earned the right to compete at the state level in February from the Robert Shefeld East Panhandle Regional Science Fair. Earning a third place award was Sarah Craig for her project in plant sciences. An honorable mention award went to Hannah Kelseys mathematics project. Alexandra McCallum received a second place award for her environmental sciences project. More than 950 projects were judged from schools throughout Florida during the three-day event.Mustangs form learning community SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN2012 Davidson Middle School Florida State Science and Engineering Fair participants were Hannah Kelsey, Sarah Craig, Alexandra McCallum and Kelvin Williamson.

SP O RTS www.crestviewbulletin.comSaturday, April 21, 2012 Page 12By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com FORT WALTON BEACH Crestviews Ashley Adams scored on a bases-loaded, ineld single off the bat of Gabby Thomas with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning to give the Bulldog softball team a 1-0 win over Choctawhatchee in the District 2-6A Tournament opener at the Fort Walton Beach Softball Complex. Im just glad to help our team out, and its a good win for us, a happy Thomas said moments after delivering the gamewinning hit. Crestview (14-12) lost to defending state champion Niceville Tuesday in the tournament semi nals. Choctaw ends the season with a 3-19 record that included nine one-run losses. Just as the nal score indicates, the game was dominated by pitching. Choctaws Kristyn Pierce took the hard-luck loss, giving up just six hits and striking out two. Crestview sophomore Kristin Bufkin was slightly more impressive, striking out six Indian batters while giving up just ve hits. Bufkin has come into her own the last two or three weeks, Bulldog coach Chris Sweatt said. Shes just a sophomore, so thats a plus for us, not only right now but for the future. Their pitcher has done a great job against us. They beat us at their place in extra innings, and we beat them at our place in the bottom of the seventh and we had to do the same thing here. Its just a battle between us and Choctaw, I guess. The Bulldogs managed to scrape together the games only run when Adams started things off with a one-out single. Things looked to be going Choctaws way when Indian shortstop Sydney Oliver made the defensive play of the game, diving to her right to rob Ragan Sowell of what seemed to be a base hit. Instead the Bulldogs were down to their last out before the game would head to extra innings. Molly Woodward singled up the middle past outstretched Choctaw second baseman Paige Wooley, and Parys Alexander was hit by a pitch to load the bases, setting up Thomas heroics. With the pitchers dominating the pace of the game, every mistake and big play was magni ed. The Indians loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the third but came away without a run as Sowell, the Bulldog third baseman, threw Rikki Rummel out at home plate as Katie Hass reached on a elders choice. The inning ended with Bufkin striking out Chelsea Shultz. Choctaw threatened again in the fth, but was unable to score. Rummel was thrown out at the plate by Crestview shortstop Shelby Gainer as Hass was safe on a elders choice. With one out, Wooley, who reached on an in eld single, was at third and Hass was at second, with Taylor Campbell at the plate. Campbell lifted a y ball to Woodward in left eld that would have scored Wooley and moved Hass to third, but Sweatt appealed the play, arguing that Hass left second base early. After a quick conference, the umpires ruled in Crestviews behalf as the Bulldogs got the double play to end the inning. Our pitcher, Kristyn Pierce, shut them down, Indian coach Grant Keen said. Everything was working with the places I wanted her to go with the ball. They were popping them up or striking out, whatever I needed them to do, and our defense locked it down. When the defenses arent making any errors, its going to come down to that one play, and unfortunately we were on that side.District baseball starts MondayBy RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER Sparked by a sevenrun rst inning, Holmes County beat Baker 9-1 in the semi nals of the District 2-1A softball tournament Tuesday. Holmes County (19-5) faced Jay for the district championship Thursday. Baker ends the season with a 15-8 record. The Blue Devils sent 12 batters to the plate in the rst inning and touched Gator pitcher Chassity McCranie for ve hits to go along with a pair of walks, a hit batter and a Gator error. Things probably would have been worse if two Holmes County batters had not been called out for being out of the box when delivering what would have been base hits. Ciara Jones had the big hit of the rst inning, a two-run double to score Jenna Sellers and Courtney Reeves and cap the big inning. McCranie and the Gators settled down after the rst inning to hold the Blue Devils to ve more hits and two more runs the rest of the way. But the Baker hitters never could get untracked against Holmes pitcher Sarah Pippin. Pippin had nine strikeouts through three innings and nished the night fanning 15 Gators, while holding Baker to four hits and the one run that came in the third inning. Macie Wilde led off the Baker third with a base hit. Wilde moved into scoring position, as Tori Foster was safe on an error. Wilde scored on a Tory Kilcrease single. The Gators had an opportunity to score more runs in the third as they left the bases loaded to end the inning. Baker also left two runners on base in the rst and sixth innings. The Blue Devils scored a run in the fth and nished things off with a run in the seventh. Wilde, Kilcrease, Tori Foster and Holly Stanley each had a hit for the Gators. By PAT FLYNN315-4421 | @PatFnwfdn p ynn@nwfdailynews FORT WALTON BEACH The Niceville softball team snatched victory from deep within the jaws of defeat Tuesday, pulling out a 4-3 win over Crestview in the District 2-6A seminals at the Fort Walton Beach Softball Complex. The top-seeded Eagles trailed No. 4 seed Crestview 3-2 in the seventh and were down to their nal out before Courtney Adams singled to bring up lead-off hitter Stephanie Hartness. Hartness, who had uncharacteristically been held hitless (0 for 3) in the contest to that point, ripped a two-strike pitch to right eld. Bulldog right elder Molly Woodward charged the ball, hoping to try and get the out at rst, something she had done all season long with success and twice in Tuesdays game. But the ball rolled under Woodwards outstretched glove, and Adams came around to tie the game while Eagles head coach Danny Hensley violently waved Hartness home, where she was easily safe and Niceville advanced just barely with a 4-3 win. I was just in shock because (Woodward) had been throwing out people left and right, Hartness said. I thought, I haul to rst, then two, then Coach Danny was waving Crestview (14-13) played solid all night long, led by Kristin Bufkin in the circle and backed up by a defense that played mistake-free all night long. The loss, as gut-wrenching as it was, was a big moment for coach Chris Sweatts program. I told them you played toe-totoe with one of the best teams in the country and had them beat for 6 2/3, Sweatt said. Niceville (24-2) jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the rst, but Crestview slowly clawed its way back, scoring a run in the top of the third before Ashley Adams drove in Diana Patricelli to tie the game at 2-2 and Woodward scored Patricelli on a sac y to give the Bulldogs the lead. Niceville played Mosley on Thursday at Fort Walton Beach Softball Complex for the District 26A title.

BULLDOGS NIP INDIANS By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com The Crestview baseball team looks to defend its district title as district tournaments get under way Monday. The Bulldogs open play in the District 2-6A tournament as the No. 4 seed and will play Niceville, the No. 5 seed, at 7 p.m. at Fort Walton Beach. The winner of the game faces No. 1 seed Mosley at 4 p.m. Tuesday in the tournament seminals. Fort Walton Beach and Choctawhatchee play in the other semi nal game. The championship game is set for 7 p.m. Thursday at Fort Walton Beach. Bulldog coach Tim Gillis is optimistic heading into Mondays game against the Eagles. We feel good about it going into the tournament, he said. Obviously you would rather be a higher seed to keep you from having to play a third game. But the bottom line is youve just got to play and survive. I think we are all grouped in there pretty tight and competitive. Its going to be a play here or a play there that probably decides each game and therefore gets you in the playoffs. Gillis likes the way his pitching staff led by Kameron Miller, Dylan Lee and Roman Donofro sets up for the tournament. Weve got those guys (Miller, Lee and Donofro) ready for us, plus weve got some other guys that have thrown a lot of innings for us during the season, he said. We like where we are pitching-wise. We just hope to swing it and get it where they aint. Baker is either the seventh or eighth seed in the District 2-1A tournament. The Gators open the tournament Monday at 4 p.m. against fourth seed Northview. The title game for the tournament is set for 7 p.m. Thursday. Laurel Hill, the fourth seed in the District 1-1A tournament, hosts Bethlehem at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The rest of the tournament will be played at Malone. If the Hoboes win Tuesday, they will play top seed Paxton at 4 p.m. Thursday in Malone. The tournament championship game is set for 6 p.m. Friday. We are playing pretty good right now, and Im pretty happy, Hobo coach Ronnie Smith said. With Boomer (Simmons) and Kyle (Slingerland) throwing, we have a chance if the team shows up. If they show up and have the intensity and want to, we will see how it goes. I think the team is hungry and wants another chance at Paxton, but we have to win on Tuesday rst.
