Follow ing the citys personnel guide lines, Mitchell led the griev ance with City Clerk Betsy Roy, who said she turned the matter over to the citys labor attorney. As head of Crestviews pub lic safety departments, Mayor David Cadle had terminated Mitchell from his post following investigations that led to charg es of racketeering being levied against Mitchells former oper ations head, Maj. Joseph Floyd. Mitchell was red on April 17. Floyds employment with the city was terminated March 26. In his letter of grievance, Mitchell stated he still had not been provided with specic complaints or violations as to the reason for my suspension. He also said he was not allowed to respond to the concerns in writing. Mitchell wrote that he had no reason to believe his performance had been in question. Mayor Cadle never ex pressed a concern of the man agement style of the police de partment, Mitchell wrote. Roy said under the citys personnel regulations, an em ployee may le a grievance against his or her termination. After the citys labor attorney reviews Mitchells grievance, the process can escalate to Mitchell taking his grievance before the city council. If he decided to pursue it, it will go before the city council now, Roy said. Each step of the process has a specied time frame, Roy said. They have a certain amount time to le a griev ance after being dismissed, she said, then we have a cer tain amount of time to get back to them. Because Mitchells letter was released Friday morn ing, close to the News Bulletin deadline, the full story about the contents of Mitchells let ter wont be available until next Wednesdays edition.

Local Crestview News Bulletin | A3 Saturday, April 28, 2012 Adults will be treated to a formal dinner at the Wild Olive restaurant, and the whole group will be fted at a reception host ed by the Friends of the Crestview Library to cel ebrate the opening of a library exhibit about Noirmoutier. Attending the Friends of the Arts Nov. 3 big band music concert and dance piqued the Frenchmens interest. They are also looking forward to attend ing a gospel church ser vice with a good Southern covered dish church lunch afterward. Yellow River Vineyards vintners Crystal and Na than Boyles will host a backyard shrimp boil during the visit. Nathan Boyles had been Cadles emissary during a May 2010 visit to Noirmoutier by a contingent from the Crestview area. A Sunday afternoon picnic at the beach is also planned. I know we think its a little cool at the beach in October, but theyre from Noirmoutier, which is in the North Atlantic at ap proximately the same latitude as Maine and the water is 60 degrees in the peak of summer, so theyll think itll be wonderful, Mills said. Exchanges between the two communities include educational, commercial, cultural and social com ponents. Visitors stay with local families and experience their hosts home life, including shar ing favorite foods and activities. The visiting French students, who are 15 or 16 years old, will be chap eroned by two certified youth leaders who under go a comprehensive gov ernment training program including safety rules and regulations, supervision and group management skills, and specialized training in teenagers needs and activities. The May 2010 visit to France included helping celebrate the 65th anni versary of the French lib eration at the end of World War II. Students from the Northwest Florida State College show choirs per form in Noirmoutier every other spring, and tentative plans are being discussed for a Crestview group visit next summer. 6514077 651407 651407 651407 651407 651407 651407 65140 651407 1407 65140 407 140 651407 651407 651407 651407 651407 651407 651407 65 1 4 65140 651407 7 651407 7 6 651407 5 65 0 07 7 4 0 407 4 07 5 4 4 7 4 0 4 0 6 4 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 OPEN HOUSE 214 SKYLINE CIRCLE, CRESTVIEW SUNDAY, 04/29 FROM 1-3PM.

We had some amaz ing things going on all the time like Charles Cook, who was in the posse. His horse was completely blind but you would never know it by the way that horse worked and showed. Harrelson said that the group was all work when they had to be and all fun when they could be. We robbed Red Feath er on horseback, Har relson recalled with a mischievous smile. Red Feather was a special train for children that ran on State Road 85 going into Niceville out of Eglin. The posse rode alongside the train, like something out of a real western movie. And at the right time, we pulled the engine over it was a real boogery looking steam engine and we stole the treasure trunk off of this train. All the kids on board and their parents thought it was re ally something to be a part of a train robbery. Then the sheriff, Ray Wilson, rode up with a white hat on and saved the day and roped us all up in one big bunch of outlaws, and the kids on the train just loved the show. Harrelson explained how his horse felt about the train robbery. I was riding Black jack and Blackjack knew that he could catch that engine, but that horse wasnt so sure about this play, Harrelson said. He poured the speed on and was so proud of himself coming to a halt with that steaming train. He just wasnt sure he could hold that train once we caught it. Harrelson was cap tain of the mounted posse for several years, before turning it over to Everette Helms. When F.E. got tired of being the captain af ter about six years, he saddled me with it, said Helms, who worked for the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office from 1957 to 1993. I rode Tony, an old stud horse in the posse, Helms said. It was the same horse I used to ride to church and tie him up there till the service was over. I grew up near Black man store and that horse knew this area better than I did. Harrelson and Helms exchanged memories over another cup. You remember that show saddle that Mr. Peaden had? Harrelson asked. Yeah, but I remember that Mexican sterling sil ver saddle that I borrowed from Walt Ruckle for a parade better, Helms replied. I think it was a homecoming parade back in 68. I put that heavy sad dle on that palomino and I think that horse knew it was something fancy, cause he sure did strut his stuff that parade. Harrelson had his left hip replaced last winter and says that he doesnt think that he will ever ride horses again. I cant be throwed now, Harrelson said, dropping his face and peering into his coffee cup. It would sure bust this hip up. That doesnt mean he cant take part, however. James Wells, who spear headed practice sessions for the newly formed mounted posse at the Baker Rodeo Association arena, arranged for Har relson to watch the horses and riders during for mations practice for the Baker Rodeo earlier this month. Harrelson, who en tered the arena on a four wheeler, was given one of the new mounted posse shirts and was warmly greeted by Ashley. Harrelson said he has had a full life. He was a member of the Civil Air Patrol; has hunted elk and pheasant all across the country; has fished most of the Gulf of Mexico; and has been on numer ous mission trips abroad to help build schools and orphanages. There just isnt too many things that I want ed to do that I havent al ready done, Harrelson said. Well, there was that one time that this big ole boy from the sheriffs de partment kept begging me to take him for a ride in my airplane that little Cessna. I told him I would take him just as soon as those wing extensions came in. Harrelson eased back in the chair and said with a smile, Yep, just as soon as those wing extensions come in.

Local A4 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, April 28, 2012 By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Crestview City Council member Benjamin Ian nucci was elected coun cil president during the bodys Monday evening meeting. Iannucci, who nominated himself when no other nominations were forthcoming, was elected by a 3-1 margin, with outgoing council President Charles Baugh Jr. voting nay. Council Vice President Tim Grandberry was re-elected to that position upon the nomination of council member Robyn Helt with a 3-1 vote, with Iannucci voting nay. When no second was received, Baugh passed the gavel to Grandberry to second Helts motion, and Grandberry presided over the vote that contin ued his vice presidency. Iannucci is serving out the balance of former council member Chip Wells term, which ex pires at the end of March 2013. Because the council president is generally se lected in the last council meeting of April, unless Iannucci runs and is re elected, Grand berry would have to finish out his term as council president. On Monday the council will con duct a special 6 p.m. meeting at City Hall to inter view candidates for an appointment to a council seat vacated when Philip Berezo re signed. The council could appoint a new member at the meeting. In other matters, the council: Began by meeting as the Community Redevel opment Agency board and unanimously voting to re scind a vote made at its April 16 meeting to award a contract for new Main Street lamppost banners to Signs Galore. The ac tion was recommended by interim city attorney Jerry Miller to bring the city into compliance with its procurement policy. Agreed to place a quarter-page, $200 ad for the city in the Florida League of Cities confer ence magazine. Agreed to allow the Bob Sikes Elementary School student council to attend the May 14 council meeting and observe how city government works. Received prelimi nary recommendations from consultant Jack Dorman on how to pro ceed with repealing the citys transportation and school impact fees. The council voted unanimous ly to begin the procedure to drop the transporta tion fee. Discussed Crest views interlocal agree ment with Okaloosa County to provide build ing inspection services. Helt felt it is time for the city to hire a full-time building inspector, as the inspection fees are a rev enue source for the city. Received assurance from Mayor David Cadle that the Florida A&M Uni versity Rural Diversity Healthcare Center being built in the Alatex Build ing will open on schedule despite Gov. Rick Scotts veto of funding for faculty and staff salaries. Cadle reported the National Day of Prayer will be observed on the front steps of City Hall on the morning of May 3. 6512666 4060 S. Ferdon Blvd., Crestview www.eHubCityFord.com MAY 5TH 2012 2075961 By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com A quarter-acre lot at 378 Woodruff Ave. the Crest view City Council was considering for purchase is back on the real estate market. Starting at its Oct. 10, 2011, meeting the council had showed increasing interest in purchasing the property from owner Billie Carter. Carter had initially of fered to sell the land to the city, but was told by Admin istrative Services Director Mike Wing, Were not in the market to buy prop erty. Council member Robyn Helt saw potential for the property as a pos sible downtown parking lot, however. The council debated purchasing the property at several subsequent meet ings. Though Carter origi nally requested $38,000 for the property, she agreed to accept a city offer to pur chase the lot, across the street from the Crestview Fire Departments main station, for its appraised value of $29,907. Mayor David Cadle counseled restraint. That seems to be a very small parcel, Cadle said at the Oct. 24, 2011, meeting. That seems to be a lot of money for 26 parking spaces. The rst step in deter mining what we want to do with it is, you gotta own it, Helt said during the meet ing. I see a value in the city acquiring this piece of property because of its close proximity to City Hall. Anytime we acquire anything off the tax roll, thats a loss, council member Ben Iannucci re minded his colleagues. I still have concerns about the city getting into the real estate business, buying property that we have no plans for, Cadle said at a subsequent meet ing. Its a slippery slope were getting into, pur chasing property that we have no plans for. This is taxpayer money were talking about. Council President Charles Baugh Jr. said in addition to a parking lot, other uses for the property could be a branch library or a downtown skate park, two projects that had occa sionally been raised dur ing previous discussions. By a 4-1 vote, the council moved to authorize thencity attorney Ben Holley to prepare a contract to buy the land. And that, Wing said, is apparently as far as the project got. It died. It never went any further, Wing said. They didnt make a mo tion to authorize the con tract. He (Holley) may have prepared the contract but it wouldve come up on the agenda to approve it. It never went any further from there. Today a for sale sign is planted on the front lawn in front of the small one-story house. City didnt buy Woodruff Avenue lot after all Back on the market BEN IANNUCCI Iannucci voted council president B R IAN H U GH E S | News Bulletin A for sale sign sits in front of a Woodruff Avenue home sitting on a quarter-acre lot that the city almost bought earlier this year.

Local Crestview News Bulletin | A7 Saturday, April 28, 2012 5785991 2075755 By PAULA KELLEY 682-6524 | @cnbpaula paulak@crestviewbulletin.com Three women talked quietly in a room filled with 26 categories of arts and crafts on April 20. Their mission was to award ribbons to the first, second and third place winners for each category, with an occasional honorable mention ribbon when necessary. The creative pieces were made by the ladies of the Okaloosa Council for Home & Community Education. The council was formed to give an educational, recreational and informational outlet to folks in Okaloosa County who have time and talent and want to use those skills to reach out in the community and teach their skills to others, or use those skills in a volunteer capacity, said Elaine Courtney, Family and Consumer Sciences agent for the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Services. Courtney said that there are three clubs in Okaloosa County, with two in Fort Walton Beach and one in Crestview. The groups get together once a month for educational programs and to coordinate new projects for their crafts. Programs are diverse and include topics from couponing and philanthropy without money, to scrap booking and cheese education. In the past year, the groups have created and donated lap quilts to every resident of every skilled nursing facility in Okaloosa County. They have donated hundreds of crocheted hats for chemotherapy patients. They have made stuffed animals for children handed out by members of the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office. And theyve made mittens and scarves and sent them to troops in Afghanistan. They want to use the skills and talents and hobbies to reach out into the community, Courtney said. Its good to keep our minds and our hands busy, but passing a delicate skill on to another person, or another generation is a wonderful thing. The crafts awards were for hand stitchery, paintings in all mediums, scrap booking, Christmas items, clothing, knitting, crocheting, machine embroidery, hardanger a type of embroidery, candle-wicking and quilting. There were 26 categories in all and each member could enter three items in each category. Joan Mosier, of the Crestview club, took home a blue ribbon for a denim shirt and pair of jeans that she embroidered with her Bernina machine. I enjoy making things; I like sewing, Mosier said. The two little dresses are for my granddaughter, Joeli Parker who is 6. She and her mother, Kristy, and I picked out the fabric for them and they turned out so colorful that I thought I would enter them in the competition before I gave them to her. Mosier said that she enjoys passing along homemade gifts to her family. Arts and crafts awards presented to charitable women PHOTOS BY PAULA KELLE Y | News Bulletin Joan Mosier won a blue ribbon for her machine embroidery denim shirt and jeans at an April 20 cultural arts show for the Okaloosa Council for Home & Community Education members. With 26 categories the cultural arts show competition included entries full of imagination, like this ip-op wreath and Christmas tree made from old jewelry. An entry from one of the yarn categories was this shawl scarf in electric blue. The scarf took a rst place ribbon that almost matched its color.

Community By PAULA KELLEY 682-6524 | @cnbpaula paulak@crestviewbulletin.com The Distinguished Young Women of Okaloosa County scholarship pageant is set for Aug. 11. Young women involved in the pageant are working on an outreach program called Be Your Best Self. Pageant coordinator Carole Lee Byrd said the competition is more than a beauty pageant and that the contestants are more involved in the community. The Distinguished Young Women program is known for its outreach program, Byrd said. Be Your Best Self encourages the girls in the competition to choose a group of young girls to adopt or mentor. Be Your Best Self can have a huge positive impact on their lives. It seems that every time this week occurs that the pageant girls learn something new about themselves and they pass that on to their adopted group, Byrd said. This is done through presentations, with information about being your best self and generally bonding with the group. These groups range from Girl Scout troops, to church groups, to athletic teams and arts-dance-music groups. Each girl must include ve focal points to her Be Your Best Self program. The points encourage the girls to be healthy, ambitious, involved, responsible and studious. Byrd said contestants are accomplishing their presentations and documenting the experience. I really feel as if this programs goals are to focus on spreading positive inuence of high standards and strong values through role models as the girls have that positive impact on their peers thorough this worthwhile program, Byrd said. Girls from Fort Walton Beach, Choctawhatchee, Laurel Hill, Rocky Bayou Christian and Niceville high schools, as well as home schooled students and those from the Collegiate High School are competing for the title. We are still accepting tax deductible donations for the scholarship foundation, Byrd said. I am so glad that we are returning this pageant to Okaloosa County. It has been gone for too long. People who attend the pageant will catch the spirit of this prestigious program and it will continue to grow to support our countys future leaders by helping to see that they get a premier education. Distinguished Young Women of Okaloosa County is the former Junior Miss program. It is a national scholarship program for high school rising senior girls who compete in ve categories for college scholarship money. Categories are talent, tness, interview, grades and self-expression. The pageant is judged by a panel of ve out-ofstate judges who evaluate the contestants based on a national ranking process. Scholarship money comes solely from donations made by businesses and individuals within the communities supporting the program. The winner advances to the state competition. State winners advance to the national title competition in Mobile, Ala., in June. For additional information telephone Byrd at (205) 886-5552 or visit the pageants website at www. distinguishedyw.org. On Tuesday, City of Crestview Public Works crews completed construction of the deck for a new footbridge spanning the west pond at Twin Hills Park. The pedestrian bridge is expected to open within a couple of weeks, once new handicap ramps are installed, a worker said. The old 40-yearold bridge was torn down in December for safety reasons.

Students purchased the dogwood saplings as an Earth Day gift for their alma mater. Science teacher Julie Hurlburt said she and her fellow science instructors had held discussions with their students, and from those chats sprang the idea of creating a lasting, living legacy that future students could benefit from. The kids idea was to sell special commemorative T-shirts to raise the money to buy the saplings. Sporting their new, powder-blue tees with a mosaic Earth Day graphic on the front and the motto, Be the change! on the back, teams of students, teachers and volunteers gathered on the strip of grass between the schools north parking lot and State Road 85. And putting foot to shovels, they soon had the five trees in the soil. We just wanted a way to bring awareness to Earth Day, science teacher Katie Blansit said. Though the trees, which as they mature will help shield the school from passing traffic, are now Crestview High School property, the 36 volunteers were able to stamp their personality on each sapling by assigning it a name. Each team christened its own tree. Shenry was named when the team that planted him was torn between naming him Sherry or Henry, Blansit said. In addition to the blue-shirted tree planters, dozens more students from seventh period science classes milled around offering moral support to their peers as Lassie, Slagathor, and the remaining trees went into the ground. Everybody just came out, Hurlburt said. Its kind of a way to make the kids more communal. Theyll be able to watch these trees grow even after theyre long graduated.

BRIAN HUGHES | News Bulletin Public Works Department employee Tim Glass, center, was recognized at the March 26 meeting of the Crestview City Council for ve years of service to the city. Tim is a master certied electrician, Public Works Director Wayne Steele, right, said. He provides most of the maintenance on our control panels for things like lift stations. In the absence of Mayor David Cadle, Council President Charles Baugh Jr. publicly read the mayoral acknowledgement of Glass dedicated service rendered by this honorable employee. By CARYN M. CAMPBELL Special to the News Bulletin Mike Chesser recently faced a confusing situation involving a dog, a restau rant and a deputy. While this might sound like the beginning of a joke, it is something that is becoming more and more common and which deserves a bit of attention. Mr. Chesser happened upon a member of a rap idly growing population of persons with disabilities enjoying the same access and benets as the rest of the public. In Mr. Chessers scenario, the restaurant owner encountered a pa tron with a service dog. The restaurant owner not only refused to serve the patron, but also called the cops. It is a good thing for the restau rant owner that there is an attorney so close at hand. The restaurant owner might have been concerned about local or state laws or health codes restricting ani mals in restaurants. How ever, the Americans with Disabilities Act trumps all of these. Wherever the gen eral public can go in a res taurant, the service animal can go, too. Recently, new regula tions and extremely de tailed technical standards for Americans with Disabili ties Act accessibility came into effect. These apply to a whole host of businesses that are open to the public, including hotels, restau rants, medical ofces and the like which are deemed to be public accommoda tions. One change is that the denition of service animal limits the animal used, with one exception, to dogs. No matter how helpful someone may nd their ser vice monkey, service snake, service parrot, service duck or service pig (all real-world examples), the Americans with Disabilities Act does not require businesses to al low these animals into their establishments. If you are building or remodeling a business that serves the public, you should be aware of the new technical requirements for disabled access. Further, new rules affecting pools, spas, golf courses and other recreational features may require some degree of compliance regardless of when the facility was constructed. The denition of places of lodging has also been expanded to specically cover condominium-hotels. Though it is not clear how this denition will ultimate ly be interpreted by the De partment of Justice, which enforces these provisions of the Americans with Dis abilities Act, it is clear that the Department of Justice is seeking to ensure that businesses that are open to the public comply with the Americans with Disabili ties Acts requirements, regardless of what they call themselves. Perhaps the most con troversial requirements involve rules requiring pool lifts or sloped entries for pools and spas. The ef fective date for compliance with these rules has been extended, and will likely be extended again until some time in the early fall of 2012. However, as compliance will require fairly signicant expenditures, public accom modations with pools and/or spas should pay close atten tion to these developments. Caryn M. Campbell is an associate with Chesser & Barr, P.A. Special to the News Bulletin According to data re leased by the Emerald Coast Association of Re altors, area single fam ily home sales in March increased by more than 5 percent over the previous year along the Emerald Coast. Pending sales were up 16 percent, while the aver age time a property spent on the market decreased by nearly 6 percent. Fur thermore, inventory of res idential property for sale down 42 percent over the same time last year. Sales for townhomes and condos show posi tive signs, as well, ECAR reports. Sales closings in creased by 4 percent, while pending sales increased by 11 percent. The average days on market (DOM) decreased by almost 2 percent, and the inventory fell by 47 percent when compared to March of last year. Single-family home sales in Okaloosa County were up more than 7 per cent in March over last year, while sales in Walton County increased by almost 2 percent. Pending sales in the two counties were up almost 15 percent and 29 percent, respectively. Sales of townhomes and condos are a different story. In Okaloosa County, sales were up more than 34 percent, with pending sales up 46 percent. In Walton County, closed sales were down 8 percent, and pending sales were down 2 percent. There are plenty of other signs of improve ment, ECAR President Judi Rutland said. A posi tive sign for both Okaloosa and Walton counties is a decrease in inventory lev els for all property types. An often overlooked sign is when Okaloosa and Walton counties median prices are compared to statewide numbers, Oka loosa and Walton counties fare better with higher me dian prices. This holds true for both single family homes and townhomes/condos. Rutland said the real estate market, like the lo cal economy, is showing improvement across the board. The path it takes may be slow and halting, with rough patches here and there, but improvement continues to occur, Rut land said. The Emerald Coast As sociation of Realtors is a not-for-prot trade associ ation with more than 2,300 members. ECARs mis sion is to assist members in promoting their suc cess through education, marketing and member services.

By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com LAUREL HILL Tyler Zessin was a one-man wrecking crew for the Laurel Hill baseball team Tuesday in the District 1-1A tournament quarter nals against Bethlehem. The Hobo senior rst baseman was 3-for-3 at the plate, with two home runs and six runs batted in to lead Laurel Hill to an 8-5 win. Zessin also showed his versatility with his glove and his arm. In the rst inning he made a nice play on a grounder and red a strike to catcher Jeremy Grezlik to prevent the Wildcats from scoring. Zessin closed things out on the mound, coming on in the seventh inning to get the nal out of the game and pick up the save. The boy stepped up big, Hobo coach Ronnie Smith said of Zessins performance. He had a couple of dingers and six RBIs. You love to have a senior have a big night in a district tournament. Thats what they work for and Im awfully proud of him and Im proud of them. The way they have the tournament set up it was nice to have a win here in front of your home fans and then go into the semi nals on a positive note. Zessins big game at the plate started quietly enough when he drew a rst-inning walk. The Hoboes led 1-0 by the time Zessin came to the plate with one out in the third inning. Tyler Simmons, who had reached on a Wildcat error, was on rst base when Zessin drilled a Jeremy Hollobaugh pitch over the fence in left eld to up the Laurel Hill (11-8) lead to 3-0. Bethlehem (6-17) had tied the game at 3-3 and Kyle Slingerland was on second base for the Hoboes when Zessin stepped to the plate in the fth inning. Zessin singled to score Slingerland and the Hoboes led the rest of the way. Zessin nished off his career game at the plate when he homered with Slingerland and Simmons on base. Zessins 3-run shot came on the rst pitch from Wildcat reliever Devin Miller and just moments after Slingerland doubled to score Boomer Simmons. Zessin said he wasnt trying to do anything special at the plate. I was seeing rst-pitch strikes and I was just throwing my hips (to start his swing) and getting my hands going, he said. I wasnt trying to hit it hard, but it just went out. Zessin led the Hobo attack, but was complemented by his supporting cast as Laurel Hill banged out nine hits on the night. Travon Calloway and Garrett Alford had two hits each to keep the pressure on the Wildcat defense. It was a good thing that Zessin and the Hobo offense came up big, as starting pitcher Tyler Grezlik was basically feast or famine with ve strikeouts and four walks while allowing just three hits. Grezlik also was called for two balks, one of which scored a Bethlehem run and was the victim of some poor elding behind him. Slingerland replaced Grezlik on the mound in the top of the fth with two outs and a Bethlehem run. Slingerland, who picked up the win, was shaky, walking seven Wildcat batters and striking out ve in two innings of work before being replaced by Zessin to get the last out of the game. Zessin powers Hoboes past Bethlehem Taking it to the plate By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com FORT WALTON BEACH Niceville scored ve runs in the top of the rst inning and pitcher Nick Junger overcame a shaky start as the Eagles opened the District 2-6A baseball tournament with a 9-4 win over Crestview on Monday at Fort Walton Beachs Daniel Bohannon Stadium. It has been a struggle for us this year so far, Niceville coach Cory Hamrick said. Weve had our ups and downs, but they calmed down a little tonight. They showed up against another great Tim Gillis team. We were going up against an arm (Roman Donofro) that beat us earlier. We minimized the mistakes and came away with a couple of big hits and we were fortunate to come away with the win tonight. Niceville (10-15) had four hits in the rst inning to go along with three walks by Donofro, the Bulldog starter, as the Eagles took a lead they would never relinquish. Junger helped his own cause with a RBI single in the rst to score Tanner Zant. The big blow of the inning was a two-run base hit off the bat of Logan Meadows that closed out the scoring for Niceville in the rst. As was the case with Donofro in the top of the rst, Junger had trouble nding his groove in the bottom of the inning as he walked three Crestview (13-13) batters and hit another to allow the Bulldogs to score their rst run of the game. Derek Lovelace, who was hit by a pitch, scored Crestviews rst run as Kameron Miller reached on a walk. Dakota Dean and Jimmy Croussore had reached on walks in front of Miller. A base hit by Seth Thomason scored Dean, and Croussore scored on a Donofro sacri ce y. Dennis Gibbons led off the bottom of the second with a base hit down the third base line for Crestview. Gibbons later scored on a Dean sacri ce y. After giving up three hits in the rst two innings, Junger only gave up one hit the rest of the way, a seventh inning double by Dean. In the meantime, the Eagles steadily built their lead. Michael Haynes singled and scored on a Cory Eller base hit in the fth. Tyler Kinard added a solo homer in the sixth. And Niceville scored a couple of insurance runs in the seventh as Kinard nished off a perfect day at the plate with a two-run double that scored Eller and Zant off of Gibbons, who came on in relief of Donofro in the seventh. Kinard was 4-for-4 with a walk, the solo homer and the double to lead the Eagle attack. Jungers nal line wasnt overpowering, with just four strikeouts to go along with six walks in getting the win. Donofro had a tough day, giving up 11 hits and six walks to go along with ve strikeouts in taking the loss. We fought back and got it back to 5-4, but we never really could get it over the hump, Gillis said. And Nick Junger was able to settle down and they were able to add a couple of runs and kind of broke our back a little bit. Im disappointed from a coaching aspect, but Im proud of the effort. They (the Bulldogs) gave great effort all day. But you have to give Niceville credit, they swung the bats better than us and they got some big hits in two-out situations. We had some chances there but we hit some balls on the barrel right at them.

Following the citys personnel guidelines, Mitchell led the grievance with City Clerk Betsy Roy, who said she turned the matter over to the citys labor attorney. As head of Crestviews public safety departments, Mayor David Cadle had terminated Mitchell from his post following investigations that led to charges of racketeering being levied against Mitchells former operations head, Maj. Joseph Floyd. Mitchell was red on April 17. Floyds employment with the city was terminated March 26. In his letter of grievance, Mitchell stated he still had not been provided with specic complaints or violations as to the reason for my suspension. He also said he was not allowed to respond to the concerns in writing. Mitchell wrote that he had no reason to believe his performance had been in question. Mayor Cadle never expressed a concern of the management style of the police department, Mitchell wrote. Roy said under the citys personnel regulations, an employee may le a grievance against his or her termination. After the citys labor attorney reviews Mitchells grievance, the process can escalate to Mitchell taking his grievance before the city council. If he decided to pursue it, it will go before the city council now, Roy said. Each step of the process has a specied time frame, Roy said. They have a certain amount time to le a grievance after being dismissed, she said, then we have a certain amount of time to get back to them. Because Mitchells letter was released Friday morning, close to the News Bulletin deadline, the full story about the contents of Mitchells letter wont be available until next Wednesdays edition.By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com A contingent from Crestviews sister city in France is coming for a 13-day visit this fall, and the Hub City is preparing to roll out the red carpet make that le tapis rouge with the communitys customary Southern hospitality, said the local organizing committees president, Jim Mills. During the April 24 city council meeting, Mills briefed city leaders on his groups plans to entertain the 20 student and 15 adult visitors during their stay. While visitors from Noirmoutier, an Atlantic island off the west coast of France near Nantes, have visited on their own, a formal contingent hasnt come to Crestview since 2009. Mills said the group will arrive on Friday, Oct. 26, and depart for home on Nov. 8. During their visit, the adult French guests will stay with members of the local sister city organization. Families of Crestview High School students, including members of the French Club, will host the French students. Mills presented his organizations itinerary for the guests, which incorporates requests and suggestions made by members of the Noirmoutier sister city association. Their visit begins with a get-together hosted by Mayor David Cadle. On Saturday, Oct. 27, the mayor will graciously welcome them with a picnic in Old Spanish Trail Park, Mills said. Activities range from a two-night visit to New Orleans for adults to attending the Bulldogs football game against Niceville.

On a recent day, Harrelson sat at a table in the Blackman community store, sipping coffee and telling tales about the first sheriffs mounted posse.

LocalCrestview News Bulletin | A3Saturday, April 28, 2012Adults will be treated to a formal dinner at the Wild Olive restaurant, and the whole group will be fted at a reception hosted by the Friends of the Crestview Library to celebrate the opening of a library exhibit about Noirmoutier. Attending the Friends of the Arts Nov. 3 big band music concert and dance piqued the Frenchmens interest. They are also looking forward to attending a gospel church service with a good Southern covered dish church lunch afterward. Yellow River Vineyards vintners Crystal and Nathan Boyles will host a backyard shrimp boil during the visit. Nathan Boyles had been Cadles emissary during a May 2010 visit to Noirmoutier by a contingent from the Crestview area. A Sunday afternoon picnic at the beach is also planned. I know we think its a little cool at the beach in October, but theyre from Noirmoutier, which is in the North Atlantic at approximately the same latitude as Maine and the water is 60 degrees in the peak of summer, so theyll think itll be wonderful, Mills said. Exchanges between the two communities include educational, commercial, cultural and social components. Visitors stay with local families and experience their hosts home life, including sharing favorite foods and activities.

We had some amazing things going on all the time like Charles Cook, who was in the posse. His horse was completely blind but you would never know it by the way that horse worked and showed. Harrelson said that the group was all work when they had to be and all fun when they could be. We robbed Red Feather on horseback, Harrelson recalled with a mischievous smile. Red Feather was a special train for children that ran on State Road 85 going into Niceville out of Eglin. The posse rode alongside the train, like something out of a real western movie. And at the right time, we pulled the engine over it was a real boogery looking steam engine and we stole the treasure trunk off of this train. All the kids on board and their parents thought it was really something to be a part of a train robbery. Then the sheriff, Ray Wilson, rode up with a white hat on and saved the day and roped us all up in one big bunch of outlaws, and the kids on the train just loved the show. Harrelson explained how his horse felt about the train robbery. I was riding Blackjack and Blackjack knew that he could catch that engine, but that horse wasnt so sure about this play, Harrelson said. He poured the speed on and was so proud of himself coming to a halt with that steaming train. He just wasnt sure he could hold that train once we caught it. Harrelson was captain of the mounted posse for several years, before turning it over to Everette Helms. When F.E. got tired of being the captain after about six years, he saddled me with it, said Helms, who worked for the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office from 1957 to 1993. I rode Tony, an old stud horse in the posse, Helms said. It was the same horse I used to ride to church and tie him up there till the service was over. I grew up near Blackman store and that horse knew this area better than I did. Harrelson and Helms exchanged memories over another cup. You remember that show saddle that Mr. Peaden had? Harrelson asked. Yeah, but I remember that Mexican sterling silver saddle that I borrowed from Walt Ruckle for a parade better, Helms replied. I think it was a homecoming parade back in 68. I put that heavy saddle on that palomino and I think that horse knew it was something fancy, cause he sure did strut his stuff that parade. Harrelson had his left hip replaced last winter and says that he doesnt think that he will ever ride horses again. I cant be throwed now, Harrelson said, dropping his face and peering into his coffee cup. It would sure bust this hip up. That doesnt mean he cant take part, however. James Wells, who spearheaded practice sessions for the newly formed mounted posse at the Baker Rodeo Association arena, arranged for Harrelson to watch the horses and riders during formations practice for the Baker Rodeo earlier this month. Harrelson, who entered the arena on a four wheeler, was given one of the new mounted posse shirts and was warmly greeted by Ashley. Harrelson said he has had a full life. He was a member of the Civil Air Patrol; has hunted elk and pheasant all across the country; has fished most of the Gulf of Mexico; and has been on numerous mission trips abroad to help build schools and orphanages. There just isnt too many things that I wanted to do that I havent already done, Harrelson said. Well, there was that one time that this big ole boy from the sheriffs department kept begging me to take him for a ride in my airplane that little Cessna. I told him I would take him just as soon as those wing extensions came in. Harrelson eased back in the chair and said with a smile, Yep, just as soon as those wing extensions come in.

LocalA4 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, April 28, 2012By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Crestview City Council member Benjamin Iannucci was elected council president during the bodys Monday evening meeting. Iannucci, who nominated himself when no other nominations were forthcoming, was elected by a 3-1 margin, with outgoing council President Charles Baugh Jr. voting nay. Council Vice President Tim Grandberry was re-elected to that position upon the nomination of council member Robyn Helt with a 3-1 vote, with Iannucci voting nay. When no second was received, Baugh passed the gavel to Grandberry to second Helts motion, and Grandberry presided over the vote that continued his vice presidency. Iannucci is serving out the balance of former council member Chip Wells term, which expires at the end of March 2013. Because the council president is generally selected in the last council meeting of April, unless Iannucci runs and is reelected, Grandberry would have to finish out his term as council president. On Monday the council will conduct a special 6 p.m. meeting at City Hall to interview candidates for an appointment to a council seat vacated when Philip Berezo resigned. The council could appoint a new member at the meeting. In other matters, the council: Began by meeting as the Community Redevelopment Agency board and unanimously voting to rescind a vote made at its April 16 meeting to award a contract for new Main Street lamppost banners to Signs Galore. The action was recommended by interim city attorney Jerry Miller to bring the city into compliance with its procurement policy. Agreed to place a quarter-page, $200 ad for the city in the Florida League of Cities conference magazine. Agreed to allow the Bob Sikes Elementary School student council to attend the May 14 council meeting and observe how city government works. Received preliminary recommendations from consultant Jack Dorman on how to proceed with repealing the citys transportation and school impact fees. The council voted unanimously to begin the procedure to drop the transportation fee. Discussed Crestviews interlocal agreement with Okaloosa County to provide building inspection services. Helt felt it is time for the city to hire a full-time building inspector, as the inspection fees are a revenue source for the city. Received assurance from Mayor David Cadle that the Florida A&M University Rural Diversity Healthcare Center being built in the Alatex Building will open on schedule despite Gov. Rick Scotts veto of funding for faculty and staff salaries. Cadle reported the National Day of Prayer will be observed on the front steps of City Hall on the morning of May 3. 6512666 4060 S. Ferdon Blvd., Crestview www.eHubCityFord.com MAY 5TH 2012 2075961 By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com A quarter-acre lot at 378 Woodruff Ave. the Crestview City Council was considering for purchase is back on the real estate market. Starting at its Oct. 10, 2011, meeting the council had showed increasing interest in purchasing the property from owner Billie Carter. Carter had initially offered to sell the land to the city, but was told by Administrative Services Director Mike Wing, Were not in the market to buy property. Council member Robyn Helt saw potential for the property as a possible downtown parking lot, however. The council debated purchasing the property at several subsequent meetings. Though Carter originally requested $38,000 for the property, she agreed to accept a city offer to purchase the lot, across the street from the Crestview Fire Departments main station, for its appraised value of $29,907. Mayor David Cadle counseled restraint. That seems to be a very small parcel, Cadle said at the Oct. 24, 2011, meeting. That seems to be a lot of money for 26 parking spaces. The rst step in determining what we want to do with it is, you gotta own it, Helt said during the meeting. I see a value in the city acquiring this piece of property because of its close proximity to City Hall. Anytime we acquire anything off the tax roll, thats a loss, council member Ben Iannucci reminded his colleagues. I still have concerns about the city getting into the real estate business, buying property that we have no plans for, Cadle said at a subsequent meeting. Its a slippery slope were getting into, purchasing property that we have no plans for. This is taxpayer money were talking about. Council President Charles Baugh Jr. said in addition to a parking lot, other uses for the property could be a branch library or a downtown skate park, two projects that had occasionally been raised during previous discussions. By a 4-1 vote, the council moved to authorize thencity attorney Ben Holley to prepare a contract to buy the land. And that, Wing said, is apparently as far as the project got. It died. It never went any further, Wing said. They didnt make a motion to authorize the contract. He (Holley) may have prepared the contract but it wouldve come up on the agenda to approve it. It never went any further from there.

After months of learning and weeks of preparations, faculty and administrators gave one more giant push to get their students into the right frame of mind to tackle a weeks worth of testing. The Northwood Cougars prepared with a Rocking the FCAT rally on April 13, a motivational pep rally to encourage the schools third, fourth and fifth graders. Teacher Danielle Vogel contributed her background as a cheerleading coach to organize the event. The rally included performances by Northwoods very own 40-member cheerleading squad, which Vogel coached, skits put together and coached by third grade teacher Erin Adams, and performances by some very special guests from surrounding Okaloosa County schools, Vogel said. Cheerleaders from Davidson Middle School, the Crestview High School Dazzlers, Meigs Middle School and Choctawhatchee varsity descended on Northwood to help motivate the Cougars. Our mission with inviting the surrounding schools to come perform was to remind our students that We are all in this together, Vogel said. We hope that they feel the support from every direction because being motivated and confident to be successful on the FCAT is half the battle.By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com After an intensive day of FCAT testing, whats a kid to do to unwind? If the kid is fortunate enough to be a Shoal River Middle School student, maybe hed head over to the schools pond for a little shing. Thats just what a group of students, led by Teacher of the Year Dale Chavers, did. Mr. Chavers took a group of students on a shing trip where they caught and released a sizable catch of the day, journalism and English teacher Pauline Buis reported in an email. For several of the students, it was their rstever shing outing, and at least three of the newbies hauled in rewards for their efforts. Kiona Stewart, who broke her rod trying to reel in a big bass, and Sierra Weaver were among the rst-timers who hooked a sh. Freddy Johnson said, I cant sh; Ive never shed! and now Mr. Chavers says that you cant keep Freddy away from the SRMS shin hole, Buis stated in her email.

LocalCrestview News Bulletin | A7Saturday, April 28, 2012 5785991 2075755 By PAULA KELLEY682-6524 | @cnbpaula paulak@crestviewbulletin.com Three women talked quietly in a room filled with 26 categories of arts and crafts on April 20. Their mission was to award ribbons to the first, second and third place winners for each category, with an occasional honorable mention ribbon when necessary. The creative pieces were made by the ladies of the Okaloosa Council for Home & Community Education. The council was formed to give an educational, recreational and informational outlet to folks in Okaloosa County who have time and talent and want to use those skills to reach out in the community and teach their skills to others, or use those skills in a volunteer capacity, said Elaine Courtney, Family and Consumer Sciences agent for the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Services. Courtney said that there are three clubs in Okaloosa County, with two in Fort Walton Beach and one in Crestview. The groups get together once a month for educational programs and to coordinate new projects for their crafts. Programs are diverse and include topics from couponing and philanthropy without money, to scrap booking and cheese education. In the past year, the groups have created and donated lap quilts to every resident of every skilled nursing facility in Okaloosa County. They have donated hundreds of crocheted hats for chemotherapy patients. They have made stuffed animals for children handed out by members of the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office. And theyve made mittens and scarves and sent them to troops in Afghanistan. They want to use the skills and talents and hobbies to reach out into the community, Courtney said. Its good to keep our minds and our hands busy, but passing a delicate skill on to another person, or another generation is a wonderful thing. The crafts awards were for hand stitchery, paintings in all mediums, scrap booking, Christmas items, clothing, knitting, crocheting, machine embroidery, hardanger a type of embroidery, candle-wicking and quilting. There were 26 categories in all and each member could enter three items in each category. Joan Mosier, of the Crestview club, took home a blue ribbon for a denim shirt and pair of jeans that she embroidered with her Bernina machine. I enjoy making things; I like sewing, Mosier said. The two little dresses are for my granddaughter, Joeli Parker who is 6. She and her mother, Kristy, and I picked out the fabric for them and they turned out so colorful that I thought I would enter them in the competition before I gave them to her. Mosier said that she enjoys passing along homemade gifts to her family. Arts and crafts awards presented to charitable women PHOTOS BY PAULA KELLEY Y | News BulletinJoan Mosier won a blue ribbon for her machine embroidery denim shirt and jeans at an April 20 cultural arts show for the Okaloosa Council for Home & Community Education members. With 26 categories the cultural arts show competition included entries full of imagination, like this ip-op wreath and Christmas tree made from old jewelry. An entry from one of the yarn categories was this shawl scarf in electric blue. The scarf took a rst place ribbon that almost matched its color.

CommunityBy PAULA KELLEY682-6524 | @cnbpaula paulak@crestviewbulletin.com The Distinguished Young Women of Okaloosa County scholarship pageant is set for Aug. 11. Young women involved in the pageant are working on an outreach program called Be Your Best Self. Pageant coordinator Carole Lee Byrd said the competition is more than a beauty pageant and that the contestants are more involved in the community. The Distinguished Young Women program is known for its outreach program, Byrd said. Be Your Best Self encourages the girls in the competition to choose a group of young girls to adopt or mentor. Be Your Best Self can have a huge positive impact on their lives. It seems that every time this week occurs that the pageant girls learn something new about themselves and they pass that on to their adopted group, Byrd said. This is done through presentations, with information about being your best self and generally bonding with the group. These groups range from Girl Scout troops, to church groups, to athletic teams and arts-dance-music groups. Each girl must include ve focal points to her Be Your Best Self program. The points encourage the girls to be healthy, ambitious, involved, responsible and studious. Byrd said contestants are accomplishing their presentations and documenting the experience. I really feel as if this programs goals are to focus on spreading positive inuence of high standards and strong values through role models as the girls have that positive impact on their peers thorough this worthwhile program, Byrd said. Girls from Fort Walton Beach, Choctawhatchee, Laurel Hill, Rocky Bayou Christian and Niceville high schools, as well as home schooled students and those from the Collegiate High School are competing for the title. We are still accepting tax deductible donations for the scholarship foundation, Byrd said. I am so glad that we are returning this pageant to Okaloosa County. It has been gone for too long. People who attend the pageant will catch the spirit of this prestigious program and it will continue to grow to support our countys future leaders by helping to see that they get a premier education. Distinguished Young Women of Okaloosa County is the former Junior Miss program. It is a national scholarship program for high school rising senior girls who compete in ve categories for college scholarship money. Categories are talent, tness, interview, grades and self-expression. The pageant is judged by a panel of ve out-ofstate judges who evaluate the contestants based on a national ranking process. Scholarship money comes solely from donations made by businesses and individuals within the communities supporting the program. The winner advances to the state competition. State winners advance to the national title competition in Mobile, Ala., in June. For additional information telephone Byrd at (205) 886-5552 or visit the pageants website at www. distinguishedyw.org.On Tuesday, City of Crestview Public Works crews completed construction of the deck for a new footbridge spanning the west pond at Twin Hills Park.

Science teacher Julie Hurlburt said she and her fellow science instructors had held discussions with their students, and from those chats sprang the idea of creating a lasting, living legacy that future students could benefit from. The kids idea was to sell special commemorative T-shirts to raise the money to buy the saplings. Sporting their new, powder-blue tees with a mosaic Earth Day graphic on the front and the motto, Be the change! on the back, teams of students, teachers and volunteers gathered on the strip of grass between the schools north parking lot and State Road 85. And putting foot to shovels, they soon had the five trees in the soil. We just wanted a way to bring awareness to Earth Day, science teacher Katie Blansit said. Though the trees, which as they mature will help shield the school from passing traffic, are now Crestview High School property, the 36 volunteers were able to stamp their personality on each sapling by assigning it a name. Each team christened its own tree. Shenry was named when the team that planted him was torn between naming him Sherry or Henry, Blansit said. In addition to the blue-shirted tree planters, dozens more students from seventh period science classes milled around offering moral support to their peers as Lassie, Slagathor, and the remaining trees went into the ground. Everybody just came out, Hurlburt said. Its kind of a way to make the kids more communal. Theyll be able to watch these trees grow even after theyre long graduated.By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Spanish Trail Cruisers club secretary Doug Faircloth has released the list of winners of the groups 2012 Average Joe Car Show in Crestview last weekend.

BRIAN HUGHES | News BulletinPublic Works Department employee Tim Glass, center, was recognized at the March 26 meeting of the Crestview City Council for ve years of service to the city. Tim is a master certied electrician, Public Works Director Wayne Steele, right, said. He provides most of the maintenance on our control panels for things like lift stations. In the absence of Mayor David Cadle, Council President Charles Baugh Jr. publicly read the mayoral acknowledgement of Glass dedicated service rendered by this honorable employee.By CARYN M. CAMPBELLSpecial to the News Bulletin Mike Chesser recently faced a confusing situation involving a dog, a restaurant and a deputy. While this might sound like the beginning of a joke, it is something that is becoming more and more common and which deserves a bit of attention. Mr. Chesser happened upon a member of a rapidly growing population of persons with disabilities enjoying the same access and benets as the rest of the public. In Mr. Chessers scenario, the restaurant owner encountered a patron with a service dog. The restaurant owner not only refused to serve the patron, but also called the cops. It is a good thing for the restaurant owner that there is an attorney so close at hand. The restaurant owner might have been concerned about local or state laws or health codes restricting animals in restaurants. However, the Americans with Disabilities Act trumps all of these. Wherever the general public can go in a restaurant, the service animal can go, too. Recently, new regulations and extremely detailed technical standards for Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility came into effect. These apply to a whole host of businesses that are open to the public, including hotels, restaurants, medical ofces and the like which are deemed to be public accommodations. One change is that the denition of service animal limits the animal used, with one exception, to dogs. No matter how helpful someone may nd their service monkey, service snake, service parrot, service duck or service pig (all real-world examples), the Americans with Disabilities Act does not require businesses to allow these animals into their establishments. If you are building or remodeling a business that serves the public, you should be aware of the new technical requirements for disabled access. Further, new rules affecting pools, spas, golf courses and other recreational features may require some degree of compliance regardless of when the facility was constructed. The denition of places of lodging has also been expanded to specically cover condominium-hotels. Though it is not clear how this denition will ultimately be interpreted by the Department of Justice, which enforces these provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, it is clear that the Department of Justice is seeking to ensure that businesses that are open to the public comply with the Americans with Disabilities Acts requirements, regardless of what they call themselves. Perhaps the most controversial requirements involve rules requiring pool lifts or sloped entries for pools and spas. The effective date for compliance with these rules has been extended, and will likely be extended again until sometime in the early fall of 2012. However, as compliance will require fairly signicant expenditures, public accommodations with pools and/or spas should pay close attention to these developments. Caryn M. Campbell is an associate with Chesser & Barr, P.A. Special to the News BulletinAccording to data released by the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors, area single family home sales in March increased by more than 5 percent over the previous year along the Emerald Coast. Pending sales were up 16 percent, while the average time a property spent on the market decreased by nearly 6 percent. Furthermore, inventory of residential property for sale down 42 percent over the same time last year. Sales for townhomes and condos show positive signs, as well, ECAR reports. Sales closings increased by 4 percent, while pending sales increased by 11 percent. The average days on market (DOM) decreased by almost 2 percent, and the inventory fell by 47 percent when compared to March of last year. Single-family home sales in Okaloosa County were up more than 7 percent in March over last year, while sales in Walton County increased by almost 2 percent. Pending sales in the two counties were up almost 15 percent and 29 percent, respectively. Sales of townhomes and condos are a different story. In Okaloosa County, sales were up more than 34 percent, with pending sales up 46 percent. In Walton County, closed sales were down 8 percent, and pending sales were down 2 percent. There are plenty of other signs of improvement, ECAR President Judi Rutland said. A positive sign for both Okaloosa and Walton counties is a decrease in inventory levels for all property types. An often overlooked sign is when Okaloosa and Walton counties median prices are compared to statewide numbers, Okaloosa and Walton counties fare better with higher median prices. This holds true for both single family homes and townhomes/condos. Rutland said the real estate market, like the local economy, is showing improvement across the board. The path it takes may be slow and halting, with rough patches here and there, but improvement continues to occur, Rutland said. The Emerald Coast Association of Realtors is a not-for-prot trade association with more than 2,300 members. ECARs mission is to assist members in promoting their success through education, marketing and member services.SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETINKen Hair, CIC President & CEO, receives donations of food and supplies from an airman with the 728th Air Control Squadron, formerly at Eglin Air Force Base.728th Air Control Squadron helps kids at Children in Crisis Business JobOB wellWELL DoneONE Local real estate market shows signs of improvementThe Americans with Disabilities Act trumps all

By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com LAUREL HILL Tyler Zessin was a one-man wrecking crew for the Laurel Hill baseball team Tuesday in the District 1-1A tournament quarter nals against Bethlehem. The Hobo senior rst baseman was 3-for-3 at the plate, with two home runs and six runs batted in to lead Laurel Hill to an 8-5 win. Zessin also showed his versatility with his glove and his arm. In the rst inning he made a nice play on a grounder and red a strike to catcher Jeremy Grezlik to prevent the Wildcats from scoring. Zessin closed things out on the mound, coming on in the seventh inning to get the nal out of the game and pick up the save. The boy stepped up big, Hobo coach Ronnie Smith said of Zessins performance. He had a couple of dingers and six RBIs. You love to have a senior have a big night in a district tournament. Thats what they work for and Im awfully proud of him and Im proud of them. The way they have the tournament set up it was nice to have a win here in front of your home fans and then go into the semi nals on a positive note. Zessins big game at the plate started quietly enough when he drew a rst-inning walk. The Hoboes led 1-0 by the time Zessin came to the plate with one out in the third inning. Tyler Simmons, who had reached on a Wildcat error, was on rst base when Zessin drilled a Jeremy Hollobaugh pitch over the fence in left eld to up the Laurel Hill (11-8) lead to 3-0. Bethlehem (6-17) had tied the game at 3-3 and Kyle Slingerland was on second base for the Hoboes when Zessin stepped to the plate in the fth inning. Zessin singled to score Slingerland and the Hoboes led the rest of the way. Zessin nished off his career game at the plate when he homered with Slingerland and Simmons on base. Zessins 3-run shot came on the rst pitch from Wildcat reliever Devin Miller and just moments after Slingerland doubled to score Boomer Simmons. Zessin said he wasnt trying to do anything special at the plate. I was seeing rst-pitch strikes and I was just throwing my hips (to start his swing) and getting my hands going, he said. I wasnt trying to hit it hard, but it just went out. Zessin led the Hobo attack, but was complemented by his supporting cast as Laurel Hill banged out nine hits on the night. Travon Calloway and Garrett Alford had two hits each to keep the pressure on the Wildcat defense. It was a good thing that Zessin and the Hobo offense came up big, as starting pitcher Tyler Grezlik was basically feast or famine with ve strikeouts and four walks while allowing just three hits. Grezlik also was called for two balks, one of which scored a Bethlehem run and was the victim of some poor elding behind him. Slingerland replaced Grezlik on the mound in the top of the fth with two outs and a Bethlehem run. Slingerland, who picked up the win, was shaky, walking seven Wildcat batters and striking out ve in two innings of work before being replaced by Zessin to get the last out of the game.Zessin powers Hoboes past BethlehemTaking it to the plate By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com FORT WALTON BEACH Niceville scored ve runs in the top of the rst inning and pitcher Nick Junger overcame a shaky start as the Eagles opened the District 2-6A baseball tournament with a 9-4 win over Crestview on Monday at Fort Walton Beachs Daniel Bohannon Stadium. It has been a struggle for us this year so far, Niceville coach Cory Hamrick said. Weve had our ups and downs, but they calmed down a little tonight. They showed up against another great Tim Gillis team. We were going up against an arm (Roman Donofro) that beat us earlier. We minimized the mistakes and came away with a couple of big hits and we were fortunate to come away with the win tonight. Niceville (10-15) had four hits in the rst inning to go along with three walks by Donofro, the Bulldog starter, as the Eagles took a lead they would never relinquish. Junger helped his own cause with a RBI single in the rst to score Tanner Zant. The big blow of the inning was a two-run base hit off the bat of Logan Meadows that closed out the scoring for Niceville in the rst. As was the case with Donofro in the top of the rst, Junger had trouble nding his groove in the bottom of the inning as he walked three Crestview (13-13) batters and hit another to allow the Bulldogs to score their rst run of the game. Derek Lovelace, who was hit by a pitch, scored Crestviews rst run as Kameron Miller reached on a walk. Dakota Dean and Jimmy Croussore had reached on walks in front of Miller. A base hit by Seth Thomason scored Dean, and Croussore scored on a Donofro sacri ce y. Dennis Gibbons led off the bottom of the second with a base hit down the third base line for Crestview. Gibbons later scored on a Dean sacri ce y. After giving up three hits in the rst two innings, Junger only gave up one hit the rest of the way, a seventh inning double by Dean. In the meantime, the Eagles steadily built their lead. Michael Haynes singled and scored on a Cory Eller base hit in the fth. Tyler Kinard added a solo homer in the sixth. And Niceville scored a couple of insurance runs in the seventh as Kinard nished off a perfect day at the plate with a two-run double that scored Eller and Zant off of Gibbons, who came on in relief of Donofro in the seventh. Kinard was 4-for-4 with a walk, the solo homer and the double to lead the Eagle attack. Jungers nal line wasnt overpowering, with just four strikeouts to go along with six walks in getting the win. Donofro had a tough day, giving up 11 hits and six walks to go along with ve strikeouts in taking the loss. We fought back and got it back to 5-4, but we never really could get it over the hump, Gillis said. And Nick Junger was able to settle down and they were able to add a couple of runs and kind of broke our back a little bit. Im disappointed from a coaching aspect, but Im proud of the effort. They (the Bulldogs) gave great effort all day. But you have to give Niceville credit, they swung the bats better than us and they got some big hits in two-out situations. We had some chances there but we hit some balls on the barrel right at them.Crestview falls in district baseball tournamentPhotos by RANDY DICKSON | News BulletinTyler Zessin unloads on a Jeremy Hollobaugh pitch for a two-run homer in the third inning of Laurel Hills 8-5 win over Bethlehem.
