The Crestview Public Works department teamed with the developers of the Redstone Commons low-density, single-family subdivision, the Bishops Landing assisted living facility and Beach Community Bank on what Administrative Services Director Mike Wing described as mainly sewer-related infrastructure. Public Works Director Wayne Steele rst introduced the proposal at the Aug. 22, 2011, city council meeting. He explained there was no reserve capacity in the older, 8-inch sewer line that runs from the Redstone Avenue area, past Applebees restaurant and down to the Rasberry Road sewage lift station. The lack of extra capacity restricts future development in the area served by the line, Steele said. The city had previously been prepared to replace the sewer line, which would involve boring under State Road 85, but when the recession hit and developers stopped work on a project intended for the area, Public Works returned the $300,000 allocation for the new line to the general fund. The agreement to replace the existing line with a 14-inch line, which is 2 inches greater in diameter than required by city code, will facilitate anticipated development all the way from the Redstone Avenue intersection with Okaloosa Lane in the east to the area around Lowes home improvement store in the west, Steele said. The developers of Bishops Landing, which is planned for the south side of Redstone about halfway between the schools and State 85, will fund the plans, permitting and engineering direction for the new sewer line, Steele said. The new line installation would become a city Public Works project, By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com With the signing of a letter dated May 14, Crestview Mayor David Cadle took one of the rst steps toward rolling back or eliminating some of the impact fees that some city administrators and area developers say are impediments to development in the community. This is to provide notice that the city council of the city of Crestview has elected to withdraw from the 2008 Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning, the letter began. The citys withdrawal will become effective on June 22, 2012. On the advice of consultant Jack Dorman, the city took the step, with a unanimous vote of the city council at its May 14 meeting, so as to eliminate Public Schools Concurrency requirement from its comprehensive plan and land development regulations, the letter stated. At a previous council meeting, Dorman had explained to the council that the city must opt out of the 2008 agreement on school concurrency and go back to the 2003 agreement, which was never rescinded, because the 2008 agreement requires school concurrency, but the 2003 agreement does not. The 2011 Legislature passed sweeping changes, Dorman said. Among them was the opportunity to opt out from school concurrency. In order to do that, one of the things Eliminating school concurrency will reduce developers fees City teams to facilitate Redstone infrastructure Cooperation creates development See COOPERATION A3 See SCHOOL A3 37th Year, Number 42 BAKERS LAURIE STEELE SIGNS VOLLEYBALL SCHOLARSHIP SPORTS, A10 Memorial Day events, A4 TABLE OF CONTENTS Local ....................................

From 2000 to 2011, the facility, which operates under the umbrella of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, raised and released into Floridas public rivers and lakes more than 6.3 million striped bass and hybrid bass, and more than 2 million largemouth bass, bream and cat sh. This year the hatchery, nestled in Blackwater State River Forest, also shipped sh to Alabama and Mississippi and supplied ngerlings to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In past years, striped bass from the shery have also been released in Louisiana and Georgia rivers to help reestablish the species in those waters. We pretty much produce all the game freshwater sh species, FWC Biological Administrator David Yeager said. It pretty much depends on what requests we get each year from biologists.

The city of Crestview has begun the process to eliminate school concurrency fees that might have mandated local developers pay fees to support school construction.

Local Crestview News Bulletin | A3 Saturday, May 26, 2012 was preparing for a 6.5hour drive to Webster, lo cated between Gainesville and Tampa, to pick up a load of 50,000 catsh n gerlings, some of which will be used this fall to stock ponds at Twin Hills Park in Crestview. His destination was the Florida Bass and Conserva tion Center, the states larg est sh hatchery, which is also an FWC facility. While the Holt facility houses brood sh that sup ply just about all the striped and hybrid bass for the state, the hatchery in Webster handles catsh. We produce fry (pre-n gerling stage sh) here and ship the fry out to our hatch ery in South Florida, just like they produce catsh and ship catsh up here, Yea ger said. On Wednesday, Arnolds conundrum was how to keep the 2-inch-long catsh n gerlings he planned to bring back each weigh about 15 grams from eating the 3-gram bass fry requested by Auburn University for ge netics work. The 800-gallon aerated tank mounted on a atbed pickup truck Arnold planned to transport the sh in only has one compartment. Im just going to have to bag the small ones up, Ar nold said. A main focus of the hatchery is the reproduction of striped bass used to re establish populations in the Blackwater, Yellow, Apala chicola, Ochlocknee and Choctawhatchee rivers. Brood sh are kept in ponds or large vats where the water temperature and light are regulated to stimu late spawning cycles. Once the female striped bass reach the spawning stage and their eggs are ready, the sh are injected with a hormone that causes the eggs to develop. The eggs are released 24 to 36 hours after injection and are fertilized by three striped bass males to ensure bio logical diversity. A 15to 20-pound sh sometimes will give us a mil lion eggs, Yeager said. We normally average between 50 percent and 80 percent fertilization rate. Once the striped bass fry reach the ngerling stage they are put into one of 16 outdoor ponds where they will stay until they are big enough to be released. The program has proved successful. Striped bass vir tually disappeared from the Blackwater and Yellow riv ers earlier this century. Beginning in 1987 striped bass ngerlings were re leased into Blackwater Riv er and in Yellow River begin ning in 1990. The efforts have paid off, said Brant Peacher, who grew up shing local rivers with his father and owns Emerald Coast Fishing, a Pensacola-based shing guide service. The last two or three years, the striped bass sh ing has been great, Peach er said. It looks like the sh hatchery has done a great job with stocking the sh. Im excited about it be cause, by far 2011 and early 2012 have had the best strip er shing I have ever seen. Im really excited about what the future holds for our area. Yeager said catching a 20-pound striped bass out of Blackwater River is fairly common now, with anglers starting to catch some 30pound sh. In addition to striped bass, the hatchery raises: hybrid, or Sunshine bass, which is a cross between a female white bass and a male striped bass; two types of largemouth bass, the Panhandle strain and the Suwannee strain, the latter of which is native to waters from the Suwannee River west to around Talla hassee; and the shoal bass, a cousin to the largemouth bass found primarily in the Chipola River. The sh are only re leased in their native waters. We wouldnt take brood sh from here and stock them over in the Su wannee, Yeager said. If there is a lake in that area that needs to be stocked, it would be with brood sh from that area. The center also man ages and stocks Bear and Hurricane lakes in Santa Rosa County, Karick Lake in Okaloosa County, Juni per Lake near DeFuniak Springs, Lake Victor in Holmes County and Lake Stone in Escambia County. 2074627 In healthcare, the security of patient information is critical.

Beach Community Bank, which wants to develop property it had acquired on the site of the old ea market near Lowes, would pay for the project in exchange for a tax cap, Steele said. Dur ing the August meeting, Steele explained that the city benets from a new sewer line and gets new sewer customers without having to allocate any city money. Steele stressed to coun cil members that in order for the project to be under taken, all four parties had to commit to it. Like we told them, if we dont do this, its not go ing to happen, Steele said at the August meeting. The likelihood of this hap pening, if we dont partici pate in it, is slim to none, to use their (the developers) words. Wing said the city seeks to partner with the pri vate sector whenever pos sible to facilitate growth while decreasing the citys infrastructure costs to taxpayers. I wish those kind of deals worked well for ev erybody and everything, Wing said. We always look for those opportunities on other projects, not just sewer and water. This was a good deal all the way around for ev erybody. We were able to move forward with a proj ect we would not otherwise be able to do. It was just a real good win-win situation for everybody. Fortunately, it was nancially benecial for all four parties. Its a great sense of partnership, and thats the way things need to be in todays economy, Mayor David Cadle said. If we can get these public and private partnerships we can get much better infrastructure for our citizens. SCHOOL from page A1 BRIAN HUGHES | Crestview News Bulletin The City of Crestview, two developers and Beach Community Bank are working together to replace an aging sewer line so that land north of Lowes (to the right of the store in this photo) will be able to be developed. HATCHERY from page A1 we have to do is get out of the 2008 agreement. The letter signed by Cadle assures area schools that the city will continue to coordinate and cooperate with the Okaloosa School Districtpursuant to the 2003 Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning until such time as a new agreement has been executed by the city and the school board. What does the agree ment commit the city to? Not much, Dorman said. Having interlocal agree ments was never a real issue locally because we all get along, he said, not ing that the problem areas were in Central and South Florida. The Legislatures 2011 action reversed a middecade mandate that as school development is done, concurrency must also be done, meaning developers had to support the cost of building new schools, along with assur ing sufcient infrastructure to meet the added demand their developments place on municipal services. The requirement could add as much as $5,000 per unit to the cost of building a housing development, Dor man said. Crestview and the Florida League of Cities took a position opposing it, Dorman said. It turned out it was an economic ex pansion killer. It was killing because of the enormous cost involved affecting de sirable growth and devel opmentWhen developers saw the price tag, they sim ply walked away. Getting out of the 2008 interlocal agreement with the Okaloosa County School District is easily ac complished, Dorman said, and is being amiably done by other county communi ties as well as Crestview. Theres an exit clause in the agreement, and Crestview has already done that, Dorman said. But theres still a statute on the books that says we have to have an interlocal agreement. In 2003 we all executed an agreement. The 2008 agreement did not replace, abrogate or re peal the 2003 agreement. But reverting to the ear lier agreement as an inter im until a new agreement that does not include con currency is drafted is just one of many steps before the city can lawfully drop its school concurrency. The city must also change its comprehensive plan, in which school concurrency is included. Any action taken by a local government cant conict with the compre hensive plan, Dorman cautioned. To get out of school concurrency, you have to amend the plan. The same is true for trans portation concurrency. With the citys with drawal from the 2008 in terlocal agreement with the school district, the pro cess to eliminate an impact fee that can potentially stymie development is of cially underway. Dorman said the process, though streamlined by the 2011 legislation, can still take up to half a year. Anytime you change your land development code or your compre hensive plan, it must go through the local plan ning agency, Dorman explained. Then it goes through the city council. Then it goes to Tallahas see. Then it comes back with any comments. Then we go through the process again. P H OTO S B Y MICHAEL S T EWAR T | News Bulletin Once these striped bass ngerlings reach this size, they are put in outdoor ponds until they are big enough to release in area rivers. One of these 12-14 pound striped bass females is capable of producing up to 1 million eggs during the spawning season.

A woman opened the door. He asked, Could I have a bit to eat? The woman screamed at him and began to curse and criticize him. Finally she slammed the door in his face. He knocked again and the woman opened the door. The traveler said, Now, could I have a few words with George? The guy didnt give up. Have you ever wanted to give up on a project, a self-improvement regimen, a new way of looking at and living life? Did it seem so overwhelming that you knew it would never work, so you never even got off the ground? It happens. After the death and resurrection of Jesus, the disciples had seen Jesus on a couple of occasions. At rst this had given them hope that their ministry with Jesus was not over. But he wasnt with them constantly as he had been before. When he did show up, he didnt stay around for any great length of time. They were waiting for him to tell them what to do. One day the disciples were sitting on the shore of the Sea of Tiberias waiting. I can imagine Peter, who couldnt stand to be idle, determined Jesus was not going to tell them what to do. So in frustration he said, Im going shing! It sounded as though he said, I give up! It sounded as though he decided he was going to return to his old way of life the life he lived prior to meeting Jesus. Fishing was familiar. It was comfortable because he knew how to do it. As a sherman he knew his place in society. He could earn a living using the skills he had honed over the years. It sounded as though he would rather go back to his previous way of living, rather than move forward in his changed way of life. Change is very challenging for most people. It stirs up uncomfortable feelings. Often a sense of wistfulness develops as we think about the way things used to be. The past was comfortable. It is the comfort of the familiar way of doing things that people long for, and to which they are drawn to return for good or for ill. In the middle of changing oneself, if the desire for comfort and lack of disruption is stronger than the bene ts of the change, people will return to the previous pattern of living. I give up is the sentiment. Its just too hard. Frustration, lack of appreciation, not feeling ful lled, fear of failure, fear of success, guilt. Any of these can cause one to give up. I think a great deal of what caused Peter to give up was his sense of guilt for three times denying he knew Jesus when Jesus was arrested. I think it kept him from wanting to be a success for Jesus. So, Peter gave up and went shing. The disciples went with him. They shed all night and caught nothing. At dawn a stranger appeared on the beach. He called out to the disciples that they should cast their net to the right side of the boat. No one could think of a reason not to, so they did. To their utter amazement the net became so full of sh they couldnt haul it in. Then John shouted out that the stranger was the Lord. Peter did a double take, and he, too, saw that it was Jesus. Peter immediately jumped into the water and swam to shore. A charcoal re was going, the smoke wafted through the cool morning air, and the sh was frying over the re. Together the disciples and Jesus ate the sh and bread. When they nished eating, Jesus turned and said to Peter, Simon son of John, do you love me more than these? Peter replied, Yes, Lord; you know that I love you. And Jesus said to him, Feed my lambs. Without missing a beat, Jesus asked again if Peter loved him, and after Peter said that he did love him, Jesus said, Tend my sheep. A third time, as though the question had not been asked, Jesus asked again about Peters love. Peter was hurt by this persistent questioning, and he blurted out, Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you. Jesus commanded him, once again, Feed my sheep. Why this repeated questioning? On one level, I believe Jesus was giving Peter the opportunity to cancel out the three cowardly denials he made after Jesus arrest. Peter af rmed three times that he loves his Lord. Three denials, three af rmations. The slate was wiped clean. When Jesus asked the question the third time, how did Peter respond? He said in essence, I give up. You know everything. You know that I love you. Peter did not give up as in quit. He gave up, as in giving it all over to Jesus. He gave up he lifted up his profession of love and faith in Jesus. He lifted up to Jesus a new assurance of following him and continuing his ministry. Peter gave up he lifted up to Jesus the guilt of his denial so he could claim his rightful place as a disciple of Jesus Christ. How about you? Will you give up not as in quitting, but as in lifting up to God anything that gets in the way of your loving and serving the Lord? Doing your best, sticking with positive changes in spite of the challenges, is what we are each called to do. The Rev.

A decision hasnt been made whether or not to pursue the death penalty, said Robert Elmore, as sistant state attorney for the First Judicial Court. Our ofce has a commit tee that reviews carefully each case. The death penalty is a possibility in all rst-de gree murder cases. Couch-Parrish, 32, had a history of domestic violence leading up to the incident resulting in the death of his 28-year-old wife, Alissa Couch. He had been in and out of jail since 1996. Just ve hours before Couchs body was discov ered at 12:30 p.m. on Sun day, April 24, law enforce ment had been dispatched to the couples residence at 308 First Ave. E. Couch stated that her husband had violated a no-con tact order, but authorities could not nd one on re cord. They left after telling her how to obtain one. Neighbors stated that Couch had run across the street to their house at 2:30 in the morning a month before her death, bare foot and screaming, ap parently after a domestic disturbance. Couch-Parrish placed the initial call to law en forcement at 11 a.m. on April 24. He claimed that Couch had left the home af ter cutting him on his pinky nger with a knife, and that he did not want to pursue charges against her. He called an hour later and said, Ofcers should put me in handcuffs be cause something bad has happened. Ofcers found Couchs body under a comforter in her bedroom with multiple defensive knife wounds. Four bloody knives were found in the home. The couple had three children together. CouchParrish remains at the Okaloosa County Jail un der no bond.

By KAREN SZULCZEWSKI Special to the News Bulletin karens@nw.bbb.org The state of Florida continues to be a hotbed for fraud and identity theft. In 2011, Florida received the most complaints of identity theft per capita in the U.S., according to re search by the Consumer Sentinel Network. The re search also showed that 11 Florida cities ranked in the top 50 metropolitan areas in the country for identity theft complaints. The network found that Florida residents lost more than $95 million to frauds, second only to California. Unfortunately, the numbers arent surpris ing, said Norman Wright, president and CEO of the BBB|Northwest Florida. Florida has large numbers of both senior citizens and military service members, and both populations are prime targets for identity thieves and scammers. Fraud along the Gulf Coast remains prevalent. Despite their relatively smaller populations, Pen sacola, Panama City, Fort Walton Beach and Talla hassee all ranked in the top 150 metropolitan cities for fraud across the country. Gulf Coast consumers should particularly be wary of debt collection scams, the most common of all fraud complaints in Florida last year. A debt collection scam typically involves a person posing as a debt collector, demanding mon ey for an outstanding debt that may or may not actu ally be owed. The scammer hopes that harassment and fear cause the person to pay without checking all the facts. These numbers mean that consumers must con tinue to be diligent.

By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Crestview High School and Laurel Hill Schools gradua tions have nudged the rst of the citys new First Friday Fests a day later to Saturday, June 2. The Main Street Crestview Associa tion-sponsored festival series was due to launch the day before, but organizers didnt want to conict with high school seniors rite of passage. Kicking off the three summer festivals (the next ones will be July 6 and Aug. 3) is the return of the popular King of the Wings contest enjoyed at last years July Music & Art on Main Street fes tival. Local restaurants and food stores will compete to see which establishment takes home the tro phy for the best chicken wings, as chosen by popular vote. The public will also be able to peruse the wares of local ven dors, enjoy original art on display and for sale by regional artists, as well as a classic car cruise-in on Main Street, organizers said. The downtown Fred Astaire Dance Studio will sponsor a dance con test as well. Couples may register during the festival. The series of summer festivals moved from the second to the rst Friday of June, July and August after Milton gave up hosting a fes tival series of the same name this year. Main Street Crestview hopes to lure many of the vendors who might otherwise have attended the Milton event, organizers said. During the June 2 festival, at tendees will enjoy live music and, for a $10 wristband, will get to en joy all the wings they want while supplies last. After sampling the fare from all the wing vendors, wing connoisseurs will then get to vote for their favorite to determine who will be King of the Wings. Organizing the First Friday Fest series is part of Main Street Crestviews efforts to achieve nancial independence as directed by the Crestview City Council, sit ting as the Community Redevelop ment Agency board, as a condition for the CRA to fund Main Street program manager Ryan Arvays salary. Two months later the CRA voted to withdraw its agreement. Arvay now works on a part-time basis. Upcoming First Friday Fests will feature performances by the Big Red Machine, which triumphantly represent ed the city at the Rose Parade in Pasadena, and the high school chorus that re cently returned from a perfor mance tour of Toronto. The June 2 festival runs from 4-9 p.m. on Main Street in historic downtown Crestview. There is no admission fee. For information visit www. mainstreetcrestview.org or call 689-3722. A D A Y L A TE BUT MORE FUN By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com The Crestview High School chorus recently re turned from a successful tour of Toronto, where the 43 students who made the trip sang at several differ ent venues while experi encing a bit of our north ern neighbors hospitality and culture. The trip began with a visit to Niagara Falls, where the students and adult chaperones jostled for the perfect vantage point to see and photo graph the renowned land mark. And though the ex cursion came at the end of April, the Floridians had an extra, unplanned treat when they awoke to a gen tle snowfall on one of their first mornings in Canada. The kids were going crazy, accompanist Leon Curenton Jr. said. They were all running around outside taking pictures. A trip up the CN Tower, designated by the Ameri can Society of Civil Engi neers as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, gave the Bulldogs a breathtaking view of To ronto. During free periods, the kids split into smaller groups for explorations of the dynamic city with ac companying chaperones. But there was more to the trip than sightseeing. The group went to Canada to sing. Our Toronto perfor mance tour was a great success, Crestview High Choral Music Director Kevin Lusk said. Our 43 students performed a 30minute program at Casa Loma, a castle built in the early 1900s. We sang in the very large library while tourists passed through or stopped and listened. Some even took us home on their videos and cameras. Lusk said the Crestview students also performed at the York University as part of the WorldStrides Heritage Performance Music Festival, where Crestview Highs Wom ens Choir and Chorale ensemble both earned a Silver rating. Chorale also placed second in the large choir division. But very importantly, out of all of the participat ing schools bands, choirs and orchestras, we were chosen to receive the Spir it of Toronto Award, Lusk said. This award is given by the festival staff to the group they deem the best ambassadors represent ing their community at the festival. Lusk pointed out that when the Crestview High chorus performed in Lon don in 2008, the group re ceived the Spirit of Lon don Award as well. Thats proof that Crestview kids are out standing students world wide, Lusk said.

Want to list? www.crestviewbulletin.com On the this page is a diagram. Everything above the line is the mortgagor, commonly known as the bor rower. Everything below the line is the Mort gagee, whom you know as the lender. If you are old enough to be making these loans then you are old enough to remember that the lender was once a local mortgage company. Usually the lender had a deal working with an out-of-town purchaser who warehoused loans. That purchaser was an Assignee of the loan, and if collection ever became necessary you knew that the Assignee owned the loan. Sometimes the Assignee would look back to the local mortgage company for restitution if bad loans were made outside of existing policy. If a mortgage went into default, the borrower or his agent would call the lender and try to work it out, give the property back or sometimes be foreclosed. The economics of the deal were clear. Please note from the chart the important change that occurred about the year of 2000, after the securitization of mortgages became popular. The really big banks, called in the chart the Sponsor, created a nominee which it called the Depositor. The Depositor put together hundreds of mortgages in billion dollar packages and issued securities called Residential Mortgage Back Securities (RMBSs). Those securities were sold to investors. The mortgages were moved into the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) that you see at the bottom of the chart. The SPV is always a New York trust that has no purpose other than to hold this billion dollar package of mortgages. Investors hold no mortgages; they purchase only investment securities. The trust has no function and no power other than to hold their legal title to one billion dollars (more or less in some cases) worth of mortgages. The entire symphony of participants is bound together by a Pooling and Servicing Agreement (PSA), which states the rights of all parties. Each billion-dollar bundle of mortgages is divided into tranches, each of which is dened by the quality of the mortgages it contains. Really good mortgages from really good borrowers make up the higher tranches. There are a minimum of eight tranches in each trust, and typically these Pooling and Servicing Agreements require waterfall payments, or payments in full to the higher tranch before a lower tranch is paid. After the settlement date, the sponsor bank has little or no investment and a multimillion dollar payday from the sale of each pool of mortgages. Payments and collections are controlled by a servicing agent that gets instructions from the PSA. Because of the enormous cash payments that went directly to the bottom line of the sponsor bank at settlement, the pressure to do these loans very quickly reversed. The sponsor banks could only put these packages together if they had a continuous supply of street level mortgages. The quality of those mortgages made no difference to the sponsor, since each was immediately sold to investors and moved to the SPV. That need for street level mortgages created designer loans such as 80/20 loans, stated income loans, low interest teaser loans and other nontraditional loans whose sole purpose was to feed the need for securitization inventory. I apologize that all of the above is confusing. But it matters to you. The result of the securitization process is that a servicing agent is bound by a PSA over which it has no control, oftentimes cannot change and from which it always has conicting demands. There are more than 1,500 pools and PSAs, and typically a borrower will have no idea what pool his mortgage is in, or what instructions are given in the PSA controlling that pool. Every PSA is different. Instead of loans initiated by borrower demand, they began to be loans initiated by the sponsors because of enormous cash fees the sponsor realized. Often the servicing agent is an afliate of the sponsor bank, and the sponsor frequently holds the 20 percent of an 80/20 mortgage. That gives the servicing agent and sponsor a direct conict with the depositor, whose investment is in the 80 percent of the mortgage. The reason for the above discussion is to tell borrowers that short sales and mortgage modications are not treated the same for every mortgage because the nancial motives, ownership interest and nancial investment below the line are different, and conicting. There is an obvious need for regulation in the industry. But until then lawyers, realtors and borrowers will benet by knowing all they can about what goes on below the line.

SP O RTS www.crestviewbulletin.com Saturday, May 26, 2012 Page A10 By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com Martez House will be heading back to Alabama in a few days to start his second summer of workouts with the Jacksonville State football team. The 2011 season was a learning experience for House as he sat out the year as a redshirt. The year also was one in which House added 20 pounds of chiseled muscle and he now carries 280 pounds on his 6-foot-2 inch frame. House is coming off a strong offseason in which he nailed down a starting defensive tackle spot as the Gamecocks nished spring drills. It took a lot of hard work and a lot of praying and a lot of attention to detail, mentally and physically, House said. I learned a lot this spring. The main thing my coach told me to worry about was retaining the information and paying attention to the details. I had a big problem with my steps. I was stepping with the wrong foot and crossing my feet over a lot. At the spring game there was a lot of evaluation, and out of about 100 plays I didnt mess up on one play. My coach was impressed with it and he told me that he could tell I really took to heart what he told me to do. Not playing last year as he redshirted put an extra hunger and re in his belly to succeed. The redshirt really motivated me a lot because I had a chance to go to the games and watch what the players in front of me were doing, he said. I tried to compare myself to them from the aspect of whether I could play as well as them and do the stuff they were doing. I found myself thinking I really could for the most part, and I made that my goal throughout the spring. I wanted to show the coaches I really could play and I felt like I did. House spent much of his redshirt year lifting weights and he now bench presses 450 pounds. He also does a team-best 28 repetitions while benching 225 pounds. House credits his adjustment to the Gamecock lifting program to the weight training he did at Crestview under former Bulldog coach and current Baker coach Matt Brunson. We added two or three different kind of lifts (at Jacksonville State) but other than that everything I did in high school Im doing there, House said. Some of the stuff here at Crestview is harder than the stuff we are doing now. At Crestview you are going to lift weights and you are going to work hard. And you are going to come out looking good and thats just the way it is. House said the Gamecocks start their voluntary summer program on June 5 at 5 a.m. The rst thing on the agenda is 40, 100-yard runs. It was clear that he wasnt looking forward to his early morning runs. Our coach told us to do whatever we had to do at home to make sure we were ready for that when we got back, House said. I try to block that out for the most part and let it come when it comes. Jacksonville State opens the 2012 season at Southeastern Conference powerhouse Arkansas, which nished No. 5 in the nation last season. House is looking forward to playing the Razorbacks and showing that he can hold his own against the best players in the country. It gives me chill bumps, he said. Im really excited. I want to do real good in the game and show people I can compete against D-I athletes. I know they have a lot of size and strength with their offensive lineman. They are real beefy and they are going to give us a run for our money. By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER A week prior to her high school graduation, Baker volleyball player Laurie Steele set the course for the next phase of her athletic career as she signed scholarship papers to play for Lake-Sumter Community College in Leesburg. Steele, the All Sports Association and Northwest Florida Daily News Small School Player of the Year, looked at other places, including the University of West Florida, but in the end the Lakers made her an offer she couldnt refuse. I had been in touch with UWF (the University of West Florida) and I was going to try and walk on there, she said. But then this offer came up and they gave a full ride. They are paying for my books, tuition, everything, so that was pretty much the deciding factor. Coach (James) Kerrell (the Baker co-head coach) knows the coaches and Ive seen their coaching style before because Ive played around here for a while. I kind of know how they are going to coach and that they are going to take care of me. Tomikko Parks, the other half of the Gator coaching tandem, said Steele will be a good player for Lake-Sumter. She had a lot of good things about her, Parks said. Her spirit shes a fun-loving kid and I think thats one thing that is really good for her. And shes got a lot of things she can take with her to her next step of her volleyball career. Shes a hard worker. She knows that her game is not perfect and she works hard on it. Shes tenacious about things and she wants to be better so she knows what shes got to do to get better. Steele, who will play either outside or middle hitter for the Lakers, admits she needs to improve on her footwork, but she is con dent in her ability at the net. My hitting is my strength, she said. I can block, but my hitting is what I do best with my technique. Steele is a typical product of Baker School, having attended there since kindergarten. She is proud to be a Gator. It means a lot to be a Gator, she said. Ive grown up in that gym ever since kindergarten. Ive always seen Kendria Young and Chelsea Combest, and Ive seen their names up there on that wall (as having played for championships) ever since I was little. To get your name and picture up on that wall (as state runner-up last year) means a lot. Steele said making the jump from a small school to the college level doesnt concern her. The local competition could have been better, she said. But any time you go against a higher level you either fall below them or you rise to their level. I think I tend to rise to the level of higher players.

It is a time to celebrate your accomplishments and a time when feelings of nostalgia run deep. Likely your thoughts are ooded with memories of your 13 years of school experiences which, for some of you, were all con ned to one school. That is a unique experience. It is also a nostalgic time for me and the rest of the Baker staff. Many of us not only have had the pleasure of teaching and working with you over the years, but we also taught some of your parents. Personally, I had worked at Laurel Hill High, Crestview High and Niceville High before coming to Baker, and there are parents in this graduating class who were students at each of those schools while I was there. Fate has drawn us all together in this special place to commemorate this crowning achievement in your life, only one of the many great accomplishments you FROM THE PRINCIPAL Tom Shipp, Baker School principal BAKER CLASS OF 2012 Adviser: Stacy Burlison President: Taylor Morgan Vice President: Chris Nixon Secretary: Cameron Campbell Treasurer: Paul Workman Class Colors: Maroon and Gold Flower: Confederate rose Class Song: Tattoos on the Town by Jason Aldean Class Motto: The worlds not ending.

There are some people who take the death of a loved one and they clam up and withdraw, she said. For me it was just the opposite. When my brother was killed, I took parts I admired most about him and I embraced them, and I became stronger. Morgans older brother, Tyler, was 17 and active at Baker School when he was killed in a traf c accident in 2009. Tyler didnt get to walk across the stage for graduation, or sign with a college, she said. As I am doing those things, Im taking his memory with me. Im walking at graduation for myself and for my brother. Morgan Jones will nish Baker High School with honors. She leaves behind the Gator Swamp Walk, an area with personalized paver bricks around a bronze statue of the schools mascot, an alligator.

Baker School Class of 2012 From the News Bulletin Archives On the rst Monday in January 1916, a year after Okaloosa County was formed from Santa Rosa and Walton counties, the two-story brick Baker School opened its doors for students. In 1921 it was classi ed as a junior high school. The school was heated by wood carried in by students. For many years, students had to use outdoor toilets across the road and drank from an outdoor, hand-pumped well. Students carried their lunches. If you were not careful where you placed your lunch, hogs on the school grounds would pick it up and then you were without, former Baker Block Museum curator Jeanette Henderson wrote in a history of Baker High School. An agriculture program was started in the schools basement in 1921. Home economics courses included cooking over a woodburning stove, and sewing lessons using a foot-pedaled machine. As the school continued to grow, in 1923 it became the rst accredited school in Okaloosa County, attracting students from Crestview, Munson and other communities. Baker Schools girls and boys basketball teams were formed in the early 20s, playing on a covered clay court. The girls team, coached by Opal Hogg Enzor, won several championship cups against Laurel Hill, Holt, Crestview and Munson. The boys team also periodically brought home championship cups. In 1927, a new high school building was begun across the street from the existing two-story school. Twenty-one seniors graduated from it in 1929. Two new basketball courts (one for boys, one for girls) were constructed in the late 1920s, as well as the rst agriculture building. In the mid-1930s, a school boxing ring was opened, and Baker students won the 1938-39 105pound championship in Pensacola. Henderson noted the boxing ring was also where disputes between students were settled. A gymnasium was built in 1948-49 and featured boys and girls dressing rooms with toilets. In 1950, a lunchroom was constructed, as well as the schools rst football stadium. Lights were added the following year. When the high school burned in 1953, the school board voted to rebuild rather than consolidate with Crestview. Until the new high school opened in 1955, some classes were held at the First Baptist Church. Other corners, including shade trees with weather permitting, provided space for classes, Henderson wrote. In 1957, the original two-story brick school was renovated, and the present gymnasium was built in 1958-59, opening in time for the Class of 59 to hold their graduation exercises in it. New high school classrooms and a new football stadium were completed in 1970, and, sadly, the landmark two-story brick school that started the whole Baker School success story was demolished in 1974.

That changed when she lost her big brother. Tyler was the Jones kid at Baker that everyone knew. He was football and track and everybody loved him, and then he was just gone, she said. In my freshman year, my parents said, You cant be a nerd anymore. You pick something and get involved in it, or we will pick it for you. Tylers death made me get more involved. The more I got involved the more goals I set for myself the more I knew that there could be no limitations. Academically, Jones is more than halfway into the completion of her associates degree through dual enrollment and will graduate from Baker with highest academic honors. Jones is president of LEO Club, (Leadership Experiences Opportunity) a branch of the Lions Club that encourages volunteerism in the community. She is president of the BETA Club and a staff major in Bakers JROTC program. She is in advanced honors studies and even has taken culinary classes. Jones is the schools STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) club vice president, Fellowship of Christian Athletes secretary and the Baker Student Government Association president. Jones has played on Bakers basketball and track teams. I threw the shot put 37 feet, 11 inches to take rst in Florida in the 1A Region 1, and I am really proud of my records in shot put and discus. I set goals, and I wanted them bad enough to go get them, she said. She recently signed with the University of South Alabama for a track scholarship and will start there in the fall. She plans to major in physical therapy or go into a medical eld. Baker Principal Tom Shipp chose Jones as his senior to be pro led for the Class of 2012. Morgan Jones is involved in a leadership capacity in many different aspects of student life at Baker, Shipp said. Morgan has been a driving force in several student initiatives, including the development of the Gator statue commons area. She is a well-rounded and delightful young lady. I am proud of her accomplishments and know she will do well (at) the University of South Alabama.

This is a big step in your life, and I am very proud of each of you. You have made my rst year back at Crestview High a very memorable and fun year. It has been great being reunited with those of you from Richbourg and getting to know those of you who attended Davidson. I wish I had been able to know all of you a lot longer. In the 40 years I have been in education, I have seen a lot of changes. However, one thing remains constant: you, the students. You know more about worldly things and have cooler toys like cellphones and laptops, but you are still trying to gure out who you are, where you want to go, and what you want to be. And, you still like to have fun. That hasnt changed since I graduated in 1967. My hope and my prayer for each of you is that you nd the answers to your questions, whatever they may be. Whether you are heading to college and post-graduate work, joining the military or entering the job market now, FROM THE PRINCIPAL Bob Jones, Crestview High School principal CRESTVIEW CLASS OF 2012 By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com When Crestview High School senior Ben White shot his famous Firework lip dub, the girl behind the guy behind the camera was Audrey Hamm. She was Bens dolly grip and pushed his wheeled chair through the school as he taped the exuberant production. Her integral role in what Audrey called the climax of my Crestview High story also typi es her preferred role as the eager supporter enthusiastically working, often behind the scenes, to get good things done. Shes involved in everything, but shes not the star, Principal Bob Jones said. Shes happy to be there and be supportive. In the video, she sacri ced being visible in order to push Ben around and make the video a success. All those values and those morals I have been building for myself have culminated in something that has reached far beyond my school, Audrey said. Audrey said involvement in student organizations, including the Spanish Club, the Dawg Pound, the Leadership Class and the yearbook staff, has expanded her horizons.

Adams Road Open 7 days a week 10:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Catering Services available for your Special Event From the News Bulletin Archives In 1879, the rst Crestview School began in what was then Walton County. The school, a two-story frame building, stood where the Garden of Memories cemetery is located on State Road 85. Fire destroyed the building in 1916. School was held in two churches until a small two-story building across from the courthouse could be secured for use as a school. In 1922, the corner of U.S. Highway 90 and Ferdon Boulevard was the site for the new school. The rst class, which consisted of three seniors, graduated in 1924. The rst year of organized football at Crestview was 1927, and the rst band formed in 1938 with 48 members directed under the baton of Romulus H. Thompson. Thanks to Thompson, the school also got a new football stadium, where also in 1938, the rst night-time game in Okaloosa County was played. Called Sandspur Stadium in honor of the vegetation that lled the original stadium, it was built to provide the band with a suitable venue for a halftime performance. Half the gate receipts (at $1 a ticket) went to the band. The stucco school was enlarged in 1927 and burned in December 1953. Scores of townsfolk dashed to the early morning re and managed to save the band equipment, three pianos, most of the typewriters and most of the records. The schools wooden lunchroom was saved by re ghters. The library and textbooks were lost. The wooden lunchroom survives today. It was given to the Crestview Womans Club, who moved it to Woodlawn Avenue for their clubhouse. A new school already was under construction, and work was almost completed on the new building. Crestview High Schools 550 students moved into their new school in January 1954. It is now Richbourg ESE School. Crestview High School opened in 1969 at its present location, 1250 North Ferdon Blvd. From its humble beginnings in 1879 in a small wooden building, public schools in Crestview have grown to ve elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. Crestview High continues to grow and progress by offering a wide variety of educational opportunities to anyone who takes pride in being a Crestview Bulldog.

There will be lots of bad times and many days that are not good, but, over the long run, you will have a better quality life if you love your work. I know that works for me. I dont love every day here at CHS, but I do love my job. Again, congratulations to all of you in the Class of 2012! I wish you the very best along the rest of your journey.

Crestview High School Class of 2012 in Pictures Congratulations Joey Collins, proud graduate of Niceville High School. about extracurricular (activities) is you have the chance to make memories, Audrey said. The Spanish Club, for example, has taught her a lot about Hispanic culture. The Dawg Pound, she said, uni es diverse students around the goal of raising school spirit. But being on the Crimson Crest yearbook staff has pushed Audrey out of her comfort zone, and that, she said, is a good thing. Its more than just creating a work of value its telling a story about what happened during the year and what made the year special, Audrey said. Our angle is to tell the most objective story. You dont want to just put pictures of your friends in it. It forces you out of your comfort zone. It forces you to experience other clubs and organizations. It de nitely gives you the opportunity to appreciate what other people do. It makes you a less selfcentered person. It teaches you to value other peoples work and their opinions and how to take constructive criticism and work together as a team. An AP honors student who will major in biology at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, in the fall, Audrey is the daughter of Ken and Kim Hamm, and the third of ve children. With the support of her family, the foundation of values she received at Crestview High School and especially the strength she nds in her faith in God, Audrey is eager to face the next chapter in her life. There is so much merit to attending Crestview High, she said. I have guidance counselors who support me and understand me and teachers who want me to succeed. Best of all, I have parents who taught me that I need to do well in school. They taught me that I need to value my education as much as I do my other Christian values. HAMM from Page 8 Shes involved in everything, but shes not the star. Shes happy to be there and be supportive.

Susan Lowrey-Sexton FROM THE PRINCIPAL Susan Lowrey-Sexton, Laurel Hill principal Senior wants career in sports and education By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com When Dad is a sports coach and he and Mom are both educators, its no surprise their son should be interested in a similar career. Such is the ambition of Laurel Hill School senior Tyler Zessin, a standout on the Hoboes basketball and baseball teams. Ive always been interested in sports, Tyler said. I like the competition; how you can compete with not only your friends, but your rivals. Though a resident of Florala, Ala., Tylers been a Hobo since his pre-kindergarten days. Because his parents, Kent and Mandy Zessin, both teach at Laurel Hill School, Tyler was raised a Hobo. Laurel Hills unique kindergarten-through-highschool constituency is one of its strengths, he said. When I was a kid, I thought it was cool how the high schoolers would interact with us, and now I can interact with the little kids, Tyler said.

Laurel Hill School Class of 2012 By Mark C. Curenton From the News Bulletin Archives Even before its incorporation, the community we know today as Laurel Hill recognized the importance of investing in the education of our children. In 1891, the community, then part of Walton County, built its rst school, a one-room log building southwest of town, less than a mile east of the laurel tree from which the town took its name. The county paid a teacher a remarkably low salary to conduct a threemonth summer term for children of all ages. Five years later, the county built more comfortable desks and a larger playground. Nearby, small schools were started in the communities of Sardis, Magnolia, Svea and Central. By 1919, as Laurel Hill, then part of the newly formed Okaloosa County, continued to grow, a two-story brick school with 12 classrooms plus an auditorium with a stage was constructed. The small regional area schools were consolidated into Laurel Hills new school, which offered classes for grades one through 12. Home economics and vocational agriculture were added to the curriculum. The rst graduating class in 1922 had one student. In 1925, the school was added to the states accredited list, a commercial department was added in 1927 and by 1928 there were three graduates. Disaster struck when in 1931 the school burned and the Great Depression delayed immediate rebuilding. Classes continued unabated, however, in various locations throughout the community. By 1934, bonds had been issued to begin the new Laurel Hill School, which was moved to a more suitable location half a mile south of town to its present location. Using Works Progress Administration labor, the new school included 16 classrooms, a library, an of ce and an auditorium/gymnasium. More courses were added to the curriculum. The 1955-56 school year saw the completion of a lunch room/auditorium where hot lunches were prepared for the growing student body. The same year, a vocational agriculture building was added, complete with a classroom, workshop and an of ce. The 60s were a decade of progress, with a full-time secretary added to the staff and projectors, recorders and record players enriching the library program. Much-needed hall lockers were welcomed by the student body, and needed storage space and an equipment shed were added. But perhaps most important was the addition of a long-needed kindergarten program for 5-year-olds. At the same time, Laurel Hill School was completely integrated. During the 1969-70 school year, the growing athletic program was rewarded with a new gymnasium at a cost of $152,000, boasting a 90-by-50-foot playing oor and seating for 850 fans. The former gymnasium enhanced the arts education with its conversion into classrooms for visual and music arts, as well as for the kindergarten. In 1972, a greenhouse was built and horticulture was added to the curriculum. The class of 1972, composed of 19 seniors, was the last to graduate from this building: Disaster struck again when lightning struck the building in July, setting it a re and destroying all but the gymnasium, cafetorium and vocational agriculture buildings. But Laurel Hill again proved its resiliency, and the next school year started on time on Aug. 28, with classes housed in hastily erected barracks and portable classrooms. A new, modern school building was begun in March 1973. At the end of the term, 30 seniors received their diplomas, two weeks after the new building was ready for occupancy. The new school came complete with modern furnishings, central heat and air conditioning and carpeting throughout. In 1976-77, a larger and more attractive cafetorium was constructed with an enlarged kitchen, folding doors to create several multipurpose areas and a seating capacity of 250. The schools breakfast program began at this time, and the former cafetorium became classrooms for music, art, special education and compensatory education. The agriculture building was completely remodeled during the 1983-84 school year, and a new weight room was built in the summer of 1984 for Laurel Hills championship Hobo athletes. A new one-penny countywide tax dedicated to education allowed the school to add six new elementary classrooms, four high school classrooms, a teachers lounge and two faculty restrooms during the 1996-97 year. In recent years, a new elementary playground was constructed; the girls softball team received new dugouts, backstops and a home run fence; and the boys and girls locker rooms were completely renovated. Computer labs were added and have been upgraded for both high school and elementary students, and new carpeting and tile was installed in the main building. The science lab has been renovated and upgraded, security gates were added to the gym entrances and the gym was air conditioned. New landscaping and sidewalk repairs enhance the appearance of the school. Originally printed in the Laurel Hill Community Guide, published by the Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church.

Ferdon Blvd. Crestview, Florida Lowrey-Sexton said. Its been an absolute pleasure to have watched him grow up, making the most of his talents and abilities, with humility and a commitment to what is good in his life. With his dad as a Hobo coach, its only logical that Tyler soon joined the schools teams. In fact, his love of sports takes up much of his extracurricular hours. If Im not here in school, Im doing something sports-related, he said. I really dont have a lot of free time during sports seasons. But there is also more to this busy seniors life. Clubs take up lots of time, too, Tyler said. This year he is president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, president of the Beta Club and school resource adviser on the Student Council. When other students need to know the ins and outs of Laurel Hill School, especially if theyre newcomers, as an insider, its the school resource adviser whose advice they seek. If another student has a question, they come to me, Tyler said. In the fall, Tyler plans to attend Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in Andalusia, Ala., and major in education administration. He then plans to continue studying in that eld, preferably at Auburn or Florida State University, before returning to school as an educator. I honestly couldnt see myself doing anything else, Tyler said. Ive always loved school. Ive talked to my teachers about becoming a teacher, and they say as long as you do something you love, youll never work a day in your life. Tyler was quick to add he wants to be a teacher as well as a sports coach, or perhaps even a physical education teacher. Maybe someday Ill get a job in the administration of ce, he said. Tyler encouraged the students who follow him to take advantage of Laurel Hill Schools many opportunities. Enjoy it while youre here, he said. Never take anything for granted because these years go by fast. Get involved in sports and clubs. Besides, it looks great on college applications!

THE TUNE BEHIND OUR From the News Bulletin Archives What do the alma maters of Baker, Crestview and Laurel Hill high schools have in common with those of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Emory and Vanderbilt universities? They and more than 20 other colleges and universities, plus uncountable middle and high schools nationwide, including one in Andalusia, Ala. all share the same tune. Best known as Cornell Universitys Far Above Cayugas Waters, it was rst adapted in 1870 by a pair of Cornell roommates, using a slight variation on a melody by New Englander H.S. Thompson from his 1857 ballad Annie Lisle (rhymes with while). The rst verse of the rst alma mater to appropriate Thompsons ballad goes: Far above Cayugas waters, with its waves of blue, Stands our noble alma mater, glorious to view. Lift the chorus, Speed it onward, Loud her praises tell; Hail to thee, our alma mater! Hail, all hail, Cornell! But far from being the cheerful, rousing, inspirational tune that might inspire an alma mater, Annie Lisle is a sad, depressing lament. It is generally considered, though not speci cally mentioned in the lyrics, that poor Annie died of tuberculosis. Originally published by Oliver Ditson & Co., the antebellum tunes chorus goes: Wave willows, Murmur waters, Golden sunbeams, smile! Earthly music cannot waken Lovely Annie Lisle. Though the lyrics to Annie Lisle have drifted into obscurity (which some might nd something of a relief), the songs music lives on in the hearts of loyal Gators, Bulldogs and Hoboes county-wide.

The Crestview Public Works department teamed with the developers of the Redstone Commons low-density, single-family subdivision, the Bishops Landing assisted living facility and Beach Community Bank on what Administrative Services Director Mike Wing described as mainly sewer-related infrastructure. Public Works Director Wayne Steele rst introduced the proposal at the Aug. 22, 2011, city council meeting. He explained there was no reserve capacity in the older, 8-inch sewer line that runs from the Redstone Avenue area, past Applebees restaurant and down to the Rasberry Road sewage lift station. The lack of extra capacity restricts future development in the area served by the line, Steele said. The city had previously been prepared to replace the sewer line, which would involve boring under State Road 85, but when the recession hit and developers stopped work on a project intended for the area, Public Works returned the $300,000 allocation for the new line to the general fund. The agreement to replace the existing line with a 14-inch line, which is 2 inches greater in diameter than required by city code, will facilitate anticipated development all the way from the Redstone Avenue intersection with Okaloosa Lane in the east to the area around Lowes home improvement store in the west, Steele said. The developers of Bishops Landing, which is planned for the south side of Redstone about halfway between the schools and State 85, will fund the plans, permitting and engineering direction for the new sewer line, Steele said. The new line installation would become a city Public Works project, By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com With the signing of a letter dated May 14, Crestview Mayor David Cadle took one of the rst steps toward rolling back or eliminating some of the impact fees that some city administrators and area developers say are impediments to development in the community. This is to provide notice that the city council of the city of Crestview has elected to withdraw from the 2008 Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning, the letter began. The citys withdrawal will become effective on June 22, 2012. On the advice of consultant Jack Dorman, the city took the step, with a unanimous vote of the city council at its May 14 meeting, so as to eliminate Public Schools Concurrency requirement from its comprehensive plan and land development regulations, the letter stated. At a previous council meeting, Dorman had explained to the council that the city must opt out of the 2008 agreement on school concurrency and go back to the 2003 agreement, which was never rescinded, because the 2008 agreement requires school concurrency, but the 2003 agreement does not. The 2011 Legislature passed sweeping changes, Dorman said. Among them was the opportunity to opt out from school concurrency.

From 2000 to 2011, the facility, which operates under the umbrella of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, raised and released into Floridas public rivers and lakes more than 6.3 million striped bass and hybrid bass, and more than 2 million largemouth bass, bream and cat sh. This year the hatchery, nestled in Blackwater State River Forest, also shipped sh to Alabama and Mississippi and supplied ngerlings to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In past years, striped bass from the shery have also been released in Louisiana and Georgia rivers to help reestablish the species in those waters. We pretty much produce all the game freshwater sh species, FWC Biological Administrator David Yeager said. It pretty much depends on what requests we get each year from biologists.

LocalCrestview News Bulletin | A3Saturday, May 26, 2012was preparing for a 6.5hour drive to Webster, located between Gainesville and Tampa, to pick up a load of 50,000 catsh ngerlings, some of which will be used this fall to stock ponds at Twin Hills Park in Crestview. His destination was the Florida Bass and Conservation Center, the states largest sh hatchery, which is also an FWC facility. While the Holt facility houses brood sh that supply just about all the striped and hybrid bass for the state, the hatchery in Webster handles catsh. We produce fry (pre-ngerling stage sh) here and ship the fry out to our hatchery in South Florida, just like they produce catsh and ship catsh up here, Yeager said. On Wednesday, Arnolds conundrum was how to keep the 2-inch-long catsh ngerlings he planned to bring back each weigh about 15 grams from eating the 3-gram bass fry requested by Auburn University for genetics work. The 800-gallon aerated tank mounted on a atbed pickup truck Arnold planned to transport the sh in only has one compartment. Im just going to have to bag the small ones up, Arnold said. A main focus of the hatchery is the reproduction of striped bass used to reestablish populations in the Blackwater, Yellow, Apalachicola, Ochlocknee and Choctawhatchee rivers. Brood sh are kept in ponds or large vats where the water temperature and light are regulated to stimulate spawning cycles. Once the female striped bass reach the spawning stage and their eggs are ready, the sh are injected with a hormone that causes the eggs to develop. The eggs are released 24 to 36 hours after injection and are fertilized by three striped bass males to ensure biological diversity. A 15to 20-pound sh sometimes will give us a million eggs, Yeager said. We normally average between 50 percent and 80 percent fertilization rate. Once the striped bass fry reach the ngerling stage they are put into one of 16 outdoor ponds where they will stay until they are big enough to be released. The program has proved successful. Striped bass virtually disappeared from the Blackwater and Yellow rivers earlier this century. Beginning in 1987 striped bass ngerlings were released into Blackwater River and in Yellow River beginning in 1990. The efforts have paid off, said Brant Peacher, who grew up shing local rivers with his father and owns Emerald Coast Fishing, a Pensacola-based shing guide service. The last two or three years, the striped bass shing has been great, Peacher said. It looks like the sh hatchery has done a great job with stocking the sh. Im excited about it because, by far 2011 and early 2012 have had the best striper shing I have ever seen. Im really excited about what the future holds for our area. Yeager said catching a 20-pound striped bass out of Blackwater River is fairly common now, with anglers starting to catch some 30pound sh. In addition to striped bass, the hatchery raises: hybrid, or Sunshine bass, which is a cross between a female white bass and a male striped bass; two types of largemouth bass, the Panhandle strain and the Suwannee strain, the latter of which is native to waters from the Suwannee River west to around Tallahassee; and the shoal bass, a cousin to the largemouth bass found primarily in the Chipola River. The sh are only released in their native waters. We wouldnt take brood sh from here and stock them over in the Suwannee, Yeager said. If there is a lake in that area that needs to be stocked, it would be with brood sh from that area. The center also manages and stocks Bear and Hurricane lakes in Santa Rosa County, Karick Lake in Okaloosa County, Juniper Lake near DeFuniak Springs, Lake Victor in Holmes County and Lake Stone in Escambia County. 2074627 In healthcare, the security of patient information is critical.

Beach Community Bank, which wants to develop property it had acquired on the site of the old ea market near Lowes, would pay for the project in exchange for a tax cap, Steele said. During the August meeting, Steele explained that the city benets from a new sewer line and gets new sewer customers without having to allocate any city money. Steele stressed to council members that in order for the project to be undertaken, all four parties had to commit to it. Like we told them, if we dont do this, its not going to happen, Steele said at the August meeting. The likelihood of this happening, if we dont participate in it, is slim to none, to use their (the developers) words. Wing said the city seeks to partner with the private sector whenever possible to facilitate growth while decreasing the citys infrastructure costs to taxpayers. I wish those kind of deals worked well for everybody and everything, Wing said. We always look for those opportunities on other projects, not just sewer and water. This was a good deal all the way around for everybody. We were able to move forward with a project we would not otherwise be able to do. It was just a real good win-win situation for everybody. Fortunately, it was nancially benecial for all four parties. Its a great sense of partnership, and thats the way things need to be in todays economy, Mayor David Cadle said. If we can get these public and private partnerships we can get much better infrastructure for our citizens. SCHOOL from page A1 BRIAN HUGHES | Crestview News BulletinThe City of Crestview, two developers and Beach Community Bank are working together to replace an aging sewer line so that land north of Lowes (to the right of the store in this photo) will be able to be developed. HHATCHERY from page A1we have to do is get out of the 2008 agreement. The letter signed by Cadle assures area schools that the city will continue to coordinate and cooperate with the Okaloosa School Districtpursuant to the 2003 Interlocal Agreement for Public School Facility Planning until such time as a new agreement has been executed by the city and the school board. What does the agreement commit the city to? Not much, Dorman said. Having interlocal agreements was never a real issue locally because we all get along, he said, noting that the problem areas were in Central and South Florida. The Legislatures 2011 action reversed a middecade mandate that as school development is done, concurrency must also be done, meaning developers had to support the cost of building new schools, along with assuring sufcient infrastructure to meet the added demand their developments place on municipal services. The requirement could add as much as $5,000 per unit to the cost of building a housing development, Dorman said. Crestview and the Florida League of Cities took a position opposing it, Dorman said. It turned out it was an economic expansion killer. It was killing because of the enormous cost involved affecting desirable growth and developmentWhen developers saw the price tag, they simply walked away. Getting out of the 2008 interlocal agreement with the Okaloosa County School District is easily accomplished, Dorman said, and is being amiably done by other county communities as well as Crestview. Theres an exit clause in the agreement, and Crestview has already done that, Dorman said. But theres still a statute on the books that says we have to have an interlocal agreement. In 2003 we all executed an agreement. The 2008 agreement did not replace, abrogate or repeal the 2003 agreement. But reverting to the earlier agreement as an interim until a new agreement that does not include concurrency is drafted is just one of many steps before the city can lawfully drop its school concurrency. The city must also change its comprehensive plan, in which school concurrency is included. Any action taken by a local government cant conict with the comprehensive plan, Dorman cautioned. To get out of school concurrency, you have to amend the plan. The same is true for transportation concurrency. With the citys withdrawal from the 2008 interlocal agreement with the school district, the process to eliminate an impact fee that can potentially stymie development is ofcially underway. Dorman said the process, though streamlined by the 2011 legislation, can still take up to half a year. Anytime you change your land development code or your comprehensive plan, it must go through the local planning agency, Dorman explained. Then it goes through the city council. Then it goes to Tallahassee. Then it comes back with any comments. Then we go through the process again.

Every year, thousands of drivers and passengers are killed or seriously injured in accidents and many of those injured or killed are not wearing seat belts, according to a department press release. It has been proven time and again that seat belts save lives and greatly increase your chance of survival in a major accident, the press release states. Police ofcers across the nation will be watching for drivers, passengers, and children who are not properly buckled or restrained. Ofcials cautioned that it is important to note that proper use of seat belts is very important. The design of the seat belts was created to be worn specically as indicated in your vehicles operation manual, according to the press release. Persons that wear seat belts under their arms, behind their backs, or other congurations are not properly restrained, and are subject to being cited. Improper use of seat belts may worsen injuries in accidents, or result in restraint failure. The law requires the use of seat belts, so if you dont click-it, then you get a ticket!

Hurry sale ends 5/31/2012 MEMORIAL DAY SALE! Special to the News BulletinA traveler without a penny in his pocket knocked on the door of an English pub called George and the Dragon. A woman opened the door. He asked, Could I have a bit to eat? The woman screamed at him and began to curse and criticize him. Finally she slammed the door in his face. He knocked again and the woman opened the door. The traveler said, Now, could I have a few words with George? The guy didnt give up. Have you ever wanted to give up on a project, a self-improvement regimen, a new way of looking at and living life? Did it seem so overwhelming that you knew it would never work, so you never even got off the ground? It happens. After the death and resurrection of Jesus, the disciples had seen Jesus on a couple of occasions. At rst this had given them hope that their ministry with Jesus was not over. But he wasnt with them constantly as he had been before. When he did show up, he didnt stay around for any great length of time. They were waiting for him to tell them what to do. One day the disciples were sitting on the shore of the Sea of Tiberias waiting. I can imagine Peter, who couldnt stand to be idle, determined Jesus was not going to tell them what to do. So in frustration he said, Im going shing! It sounded as though he said, I give up! It sounded as though he decided he was going to return to his old way of life the life he lived prior to meeting Jesus. Fishing was familiar. It was comfortable because he knew how to do it. As a sherman he knew his place in society. He could earn a living using the skills he had honed over the years. It sounded as though he would rather go back to his previous way of living, rather than move forward in his changed way of life. Change is very challenging for most people. It stirs up uncomfortable feelings. Often a sense of wistfulness develops as we think about the way things used to be. The past was comfortable. It is the comfort of the familiar way of doing things that people long for, and to which they are drawn to return for good or for ill. In the middle of changing oneself, if the desire for comfort and lack of disruption is stronger than the bene ts of the change, people will return to the previous pattern of living. I give up is the sentiment. Its just too hard. Frustration, lack of appreciation, not feeling ful lled, fear of failure, fear of success, guilt. Any of these can cause one to give up. I think a great deal of what caused Peter to give up was his sense of guilt for three times denying he knew Jesus when Jesus was arrested. I think it kept him from wanting to be a success for Jesus. So, Peter gave up and went shing. The disciples went with him. They shed all night and caught nothing. At dawn a stranger appeared on the beach. He called out to the disciples that they should cast their net to the right side of the boat. No one could think of a reason not to, so they did. To their utter amazement the net became so full of sh they couldnt haul it in. Then John shouted out that the stranger was the Lord. Peter did a double take, and he, too, saw that it was Jesus. Peter immediately jumped into the water and swam to shore. A charcoal re was going, the smoke wafted through the cool morning air, and the sh was frying over the re. Together the disciples and Jesus ate the sh and bread. When they nished eating, Jesus turned and said to Peter, Simon son of John, do you love me more than these? Peter replied, Yes, Lord; you know that I love you. And Jesus said to him, Feed my lambs. Without missing a beat, Jesus asked again if Peter loved him, and after Peter said that he did love him, Jesus said, Tend my sheep. A third time, as though the question had not been asked, Jesus asked again about Peters love. Peter was hurt by this persistent questioning, and he blurted out, Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you. Jesus commanded him, once again, Feed my sheep. Why this repeated questioning? On one level, I believe Jesus was giving Peter the opportunity to cancel out the three cowardly denials he made after Jesus arrest. Peter af rmed three times that he loves his Lord. Three denials, three af rmations. The slate was wiped clean. When Jesus asked the question the third time, how did Peter respond? He said in essence, I give up. You know everything. You know that I love you. Peter did not give up as in quit. He gave up, as in giving it all over to Jesus. He gave up he lifted up his profession of love and faith in Jesus. He lifted up to Jesus a new assurance of following him and continuing his ministry. Peter gave up he lifted up to Jesus the guilt of his denial so he could claim his rightful place as a disciple of Jesus Christ. How about you? Will you give up not as in quitting, but as in lifting up to God anything that gets in the way of your loving and serving the Lord? Doing your best, sticking with positive changes in spite of the challenges, is what we are each called to do. The Rev.

A decision hasnt been made whether or not to pursue the death penalty, said Robert Elmore, assistant state attorney for the First Judicial Court. Our ofce has a committee that reviews carefully each case. The death penalty is a possibility in all rst-degree murder cases. Couch-Parrish, 32, had a history of domestic violence leading up to the incident resulting in the death of his 28-year-old wife, Alissa Couch. He had been in and out of jail since 1996. Just ve hours before Couchs body was discovered at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 24, law enforcement had been dispatched to the couples residence at 308 First Ave. E. Couch stated that her husband had violated a no-contact order, but authorities could not nd one on record. They left after telling her how to obtain one. Neighbors stated that Couch had run across the street to their house at 2:30 in the morning a month before her death, barefoot and screaming, apparently after a domestic disturbance. Couch-Parrish placed the initial call to law enforcement at 11 a.m. on April 24. He claimed that Couch had left the home after cutting him on his pinky nger with a knife, and that he did not want to pursue charges against her. He called an hour later and said, Ofcers should put me in handcuffs because something bad has happened. Ofcers found Couchs body under a comforter in her bedroom with multiple defensive knife wounds. Four bloody knives were found in the home. The couple had three children together. CouchParrish remains at the Okaloosa County Jail under no bond. Law EnforcementBy WENDY VICTORAwvictora@nwfdailynews.com LAUREL HILL A man accused of burglarizing the Laurel Hill City Hall last December has been arrested. Brandon Lee Henderson, 25, was arrested May 17 and is charged with felony burglary and a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief, according to his Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office arrest report. He is scheduled to appear in court June 26. On Dec. 13 city employees arrived at work to find that the building had been burglarized. A door into the fire department had been kicked in and the petty cash bag containing $126.24 was missing. The same day, a citizen informant told sheriffs office investigators that a Laurel Hill man had been burglarizing properties and trading in stolen goods to support a drug addiction, according to the report. Three days later, investigators learned that Henderson had exchanged some rolled coin currency for crack cocaine, the report said. Some of the missing petty cash had been rolled coins. Henderson told a sheriffs office investigator that he was responsible for the damage to Laurel Hill City Hall, the report states, and that the burglary was a result of his drug abuse and that he needed help for his drug addiction. Henderson was also charged with the Jan. 11 burglary of a Laurel Hill home.

In 2011, Florida received the most complaints of identity theft per capita in the U.S., according to research by the Consumer Sentinel Network. The research also showed that 11 Florida cities ranked in the top 50 metropolitan areas in the country for identity theft complaints. The network found that Florida residents lost more than $95 million to frauds, second only to California. Unfortunately, the numbers arent surprising, said Norman Wright, president and CEO of the BBB|Northwest Florida. Florida has large numbers of both senior citizens and military service members, and both populations are prime targets for identity thieves and scammers. Fraud along the Gulf Coast remains prevalent. Despite their relatively smaller populations, Pensacola, Panama City, Fort Walton Beach and Tallahassee all ranked in the top 150 metropolitan cities for fraud across the country. Gulf Coast consumers should particularly be wary of debt collection scams, the most common of all fraud complaints in Florida last year. A debt collection scam typically involves a person posing as a debt collector, demanding money for an outstanding debt that may or may not actually be owed. The scammer hopes that harassment and fear cause the person to pay without checking all the facts. These numbers mean that consumers must continue to be diligent.   S tart with bbb.org to get a BBB Business Review on any business youre considering hiring, especially if they contact you rst.   T ake precautions to protect your information online: use secure passwords, keep anti-virus and anti-spyware current, and do not respond to emails asking you to verify your personal information.   O fine, minimize the personal information thats imprinted on your checks, dont carry around more credit cards than are necessary, dont leave sensitive mail sitting in an unlocked mailbox, and shred any sensitive documents you no longer need.   M onitor your ac counts regularly for any unauthorized transactions and report any errors immediately.   G et a free copy of your credit report from each of the three credit bureaus every year. www. annualcreditreport.com is the only ofcial site to help consumers get a free copy of their credit report.

By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Crestview High School and Laurel Hill Schools graduations have nudged the rst of the citys new First Friday Fests a day later to Saturday, June 2. The Main Street Crestview Association-sponsored festival series was due to launch the day before, but organizers didnt want to conict with high school seniors rite of passage. Kicking off the three summer festivals (the next ones will be July 6 and Aug. 3) is the return of the popular King of the Wings contest enjoyed at last years July Music & Art on Main Street festival. Local restaurants and food stores will compete to see which establishment takes home the trophy for the best chicken wings, as chosen by popular vote. The public will also be able to peruse the wares of local vendors, enjoy original art on display and for sale by regional artists, as well as a classic car cruise-in on Main Street, organizers said. The downtown Fred Astaire Dance Studio will sponsor a dance contest as well. Couples may register during the festival. The series of summer festivals moved from the second to the rst Friday of June, July and August after Milton gave up hosting a festival series of the same name this year. Main Street Crestview hopes to lure many of the vendors who might otherwise have attended the Milton event, organizers said. During the June 2 festival, attendees will enjoy live music and, for a $10 wristband, will get to enjoy all the wings they want while supplies last. After sampling the fare from all the wing vendors, wing connoisseurs will then get to vote for their favorite to determine who will be King of the Wings. Organizing the First Friday Fest series is part of Main Street Crestviews efforts to achieve nancial independence as directed by the Crestview City Council, sitting as the Community Redevelopment Agency board, as a condition for the CRA to fund Main Street program manager Ryan Arvays salary. Two months later the CRA voted to withdraw its agreement. Arvay now works on a part-time basis. Upcoming First Friday Fests will feature performances by the Big Red Machine, which triumphantly represented the city at the Rose Parade in Pasadena, and the high school chorus that recently returned from a performance tour of Toronto. The June 2 festival runs from 4-9 p.m. on Main Street in historic downtown Crestview. There is no admission fee. For information visit www. mainstreetcrestview.org or call 689-3722. A Da A Y La A TE BUT MORE FUNBy BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com The Crestview High School chorus recently returned from a successful tour of Toronto, where the 43 students who made the trip sang at several different venues while experiencing a bit of our northern neighbors hospitality and culture. The trip began with a visit to Niagara Falls, where the students and adult chaperones jostled for the perfect vantage point to see and photograph the renowned landmark. And though the excursion came at the end of April, the Floridians had an extra, unplanned treat when they awoke to a gentle snowfall on one of their first mornings in Canada. The kids were going crazy, accompanist Leon Curenton Jr. said. They were all running around outside taking pictures. A trip up the CN Tower, designated by the American Society of Civil Engineers as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, gave the Bulldogs a breathtaking view of Toronto. During free periods, the kids split into smaller groups for explorations of the dynamic city with accompanying chaperones. But there was more to the trip than sightseeing. The group went to Canada to sing. Our Toronto performance tour was a great success, Crestview High Choral Music Director Kevin Lusk said. Our 43 students performed a 30minute program at Casa Loma, a castle built in the early 1900s. We sang in the very large library while tourists passed through or stopped and listened. Some even took us home on their videos and cameras. Lusk said the Crestview students also performed at the York University as part of the WorldStrides Heritage Performance Music Festival, where Crestview Highs Womens Choir and Chorale ensemble both earned a Silver rating. Chorale also placed second in the large choir division. But very importantly, out of all of the participating schools bands, choirs and orchestras, we were chosen to receive the Spirit of Toronto Award, Lusk said. This award is given by the festival staff to the group they deem the best ambassadors representing their community at the festival. Lusk pointed out that when the Crestview High chorus performed in London in 2008, the group received the Spirit of London Award as well. Thats proof that Crestview kids are outstanding students worldwide, Lusk said.Photos by KAREN REN LULU SK | News BulletinCrestview High Chorus praised for its ambassadorship Graduations move first First Friday Fest to SaturdayBulldogs hit Toronto Thats proof that Crestview kids are outstanding students worldwide.

Everything above the line is the mortgagor, commonly known as the borrower. Everything below the line is the Mortgagee, whom you know as the lender. If you are old enough to be making these loans then you are old enough to remember that the lender was once a local mortgage company. Usually the lender had a deal working with an out-of-town purchaser who warehoused loans. That purchaser was an Assignee of the loan, and if collection ever became necessary you knew that the Assignee owned the loan. Sometimes the Assignee would look back to the local mortgage company for restitution if bad loans were made outside of existing policy. If a mortgage went into default, the borrower or his agent would call the lender and try to work it out, give the property back or sometimes be foreclosed. The economics of the deal were clear. Please note from the chart the important change that occurred about the year of 2000, after the securitization of mortgages became popular. The really big banks, called in the chart the Sponsor, created a nominee which it called the Depositor. The Depositor put together hundreds of mortgages in billion dollar packages and issued securities called Residential Mortgage Back Securities (RMBSs). Those securities were sold to investors. The mortgages were moved into the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) that you see at the bottom of the chart. The SPV is always a New York trust that has no purpose other than to hold this billion dollar package of mortgages. Investors hold no mortgages; they purchase only investment securities. The trust has no function and no power other than to hold their legal title to one billion dollars (more or less in some cases) worth of mortgages. The entire symphony of participants is bound together by a Pooling and Servicing Agreement (PSA), which states the rights of all parties. Each billion-dollar bundle of mortgages is divided into tranches, each of which is dened by the quality of the mortgages it contains. Really good mortgages from really good borrowers make up the higher tranches. There are a minimum of eight tranches in each trust, and typically these Pooling and Servicing Agreements require waterfall payments, or payments in full to the higher tranch before a lower tranch is paid. After the settlement date, the sponsor bank has little or no investment and a multimillion dollar payday from the sale of each pool of mortgages. Payments and collections are controlled by a servicing agent that gets instructions from the PSA. Because of the enormous cash payments that went directly to the bottom line of the sponsor bank at settlement, the pressure to do these loans very quickly reversed. The sponsor banks could only put these packages together if they had a continuous supply of street level mortgages. The quality of those mortgages made no difference to the sponsor, since each was immediately sold to investors and moved to the SPV. That need for street level mortgages created designer loans such as 80/20 loans, stated income loans, low interest teaser loans and other nontraditional loans whose sole purpose was to feed the need for securitization inventory. I apologize that all of the above is confusing. But it matters to you. The result of the securitization process is that a servicing agent is bound by a PSA over which it has no control, oftentimes cannot change and from which it always has conicting demands. There are more than 1,500 pools and PSAs, and typically a borrower will have no idea what pool his mortgage is in, or what instructions are given in the PSA controlling that pool. Every PSA is different. Instead of loans initiated by borrower demand, they began to be loans initiated by the sponsors because of enormous cash fees the sponsor realized. Often the servicing agent is an afliate of the sponsor bank, and the sponsor frequently holds the 20 percent of an 80/20 mortgage. That gives the servicing agent and sponsor a direct conict with the depositor, whose investment is in the 80 percent of the mortgage. The reason for the above discussion is to tell borrowers that short sales and mortgage modications are not treated the same for every mortgage because the nancial motives, ownership interest and nancial investment below the line are different, and conicting. There is an obvious need for regulation in the industry. But until then lawyers, realtors and borrowers will benet by knowing all they can about what goes on below the line.

SP O RTS www.crestviewbulletin.comSaturday, May 26, 2012 Page A10By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com Martez House will be heading back to Alabama in a few days to start his second summer of workouts with the Jacksonville State football team. The 2011 season was a learning experience for House as he sat out the year as a redshirt. The year also was one in which House added 20 pounds of chiseled muscle and he now carries 280 pounds on his 6-foot-2 inch frame. House is coming off a strong offseason in which he nailed down a starting defensive tackle spot as the Gamecocks nished spring drills. It took a lot of hard work and a lot of praying and a lot of attention to detail, mentally and physically, House said. I learned a lot this spring. The main thing my coach told me to worry about was retaining the information and paying attention to the details. I had a big problem with my steps. I was stepping with the wrong foot and crossing my feet over a lot. At the spring game there was a lot of evaluation, and out of about 100 plays I didnt mess up on one play. My coach was impressed with it and he told me that he could tell I really took to heart what he told me to do. Not playing last year as he redshirted put an extra hunger and re in his belly to succeed. The redshirt really motivated me a lot because I had a chance to go to the games and watch what the players in front of me were doing, he said. I tried to compare myself to them from the aspect of whether I could play as well as them and do the stuff they were doing. I found myself thinking I really could for the most part, and I made that my goal throughout the spring. I wanted to show the coaches I really could play and I felt like I did. House spent much of his redshirt year lifting weights and he now bench presses 450 pounds. He also does a team-best 28 repetitions while benching 225 pounds. House credits his adjustment to the Gamecock lifting program to the weight training he did at Crestview under former Bulldog coach and current Baker coach Matt Brunson. We added two or three different kind of lifts (at Jacksonville State) but other than that everything I did in high school Im doing there, House said. Some of the stuff here at Crestview is harder than the stuff we are doing now. At Crestview you are going to lift weights and you are going to work hard. And you are going to come out looking good and thats just the way it is. House said the Gamecocks start their voluntary summer program on June 5 at 5 a.m. The rst thing on the agenda is 40, 100-yard runs. It was clear that he wasnt looking forward to his early morning runs. Our coach told us to do whatever we had to do at home to make sure we were ready for that when we got back, House said. I try to block that out for the most part and let it come when it comes. Jacksonville State opens the 2012 season at Southeastern Conference powerhouse Arkansas, which nished No. 5 in the nation last season. House is looking forward to playing the Razorbacks and showing that he can hold his own against the best players in the country. It gives me chill bumps, he said. Im really excited. I want to do real good in the game and show people I can compete against D-I athletes. I know they have a lot of size and strength with their offensive lineman. They are real beefy and they are going to give us a run for our money. By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER A week prior to her high school graduation, Baker volleyball player Laurie Steele set the course for the next phase of her athletic career as she signed scholarship papers to play for Lake-Sumter Community College in Leesburg. Steele, the All Sports Association and Northwest Florida Daily News Small School Player of the Year, looked at other places, including the University of West Florida, but in the end the Lakers made her an offer she couldnt refuse. I had been in touch with UWF (the University of West Florida) and I was going to try and walk on there, she said. But then this offer came up and they gave a full ride. They are paying for my books, tuition, everything, so that was pretty much the deciding factor. Coach (James) Kerrell (the Baker co-head coach) knows the coaches and Ive seen their coaching style before because Ive played around here for a while. I kind of know how they are going to coach and that they are going to take care of me. Tomikko Parks, the other half of the Gator coaching tandem, said Steele will be a good player for Lake-Sumter. She had a lot of good things about her, Parks said. Her spirit shes a fun-loving kid and I think thats one thing that is really good for her. And shes got a lot of things she can take with her to her next step of her volleyball career. Shes a hard worker. She knows that her game is not perfect and she works hard on it. Shes tenacious about things and she wants to be better so she knows what shes got to do to get better. Steele, who will play either outside or middle hitter for the Lakers, admits she needs to improve on her footwork, but she is con dent in her ability at the net. My hitting is my strength, she said. I can block, but my hitting is what I do best with my technique. Steele is a typical product of Baker School, having attended there since kindergarten. She is proud to be a Gator. It means a lot to be a Gator, she said. Ive grown up in that gym ever since kindergarten. Ive always seen Kendria Young and Chelsea Combest, and Ive seen their names up there on that wall (as having played for championships) ever since I was little. To get your name and picture up on that wall (as state runner-up last year) means a lot. Steele said making the jump from a small school to the college level doesnt concern her. The local competition could have been better, she said. But any time you go against a higher level you either fall below them or you rise to their level. I think I tend to rise to the level of higher players.

It is a time to celebrate your accomplishments and a time when feelings of nostalgia run deep. Likely your thoughts are ooded with memories of your 13 years of school experiences which, for some of you, were all con ned to one school. That is a unique experience. It is also a nostalgic time for me and the rest of the Baker staff. Many of us not only have had the pleasure of teaching and working with you over the years, but we also taught some of your parents. Personally, I had worked at Laurel Hill High, Crestview High and Niceville High before coming to Baker, and there are parents in this graduating class who were students at each of those schools while I was there. Fate has drawn us all together in this special place to commemorate this crowning achievement in your life, only one of the many great accomplishments you FROM THE PRINCIPAL Tom Shipp, Baker School principal BAKER CLASS OF 2012Adviser: Stacy Burlison President: Taylor Morgan Vice President: Chris Nixon Secretary: Cameron Campbell Treasurer: Paul Workman Class Colors: Maroon and Gold Flower: Confederate rose Class Song: Tattoos on the Town by Jason Aldean Class Motto: The worlds not ending.

There are some people who take the death of a loved one and they clam up and withdraw, she said. For me it was just the opposite. When my brother was killed, I took parts I admired most about him and I embraced them, and I became stronger. Morgans older brother, Tyler, was 17 and active at Baker School when he was killed in a traf c accident in 2009. Tyler didnt get to walk across the stage for graduation, or sign with a college, she said. As I am doing those things, Im taking his memory with me. Im walking at graduation for myself and for my brother.Morgan Jones will nish Baker High School with honors.

Baker School Class of 2012 From the News Bulletin Archives On the rst Monday in January 1916, a year after Okaloosa County was formed from Santa Rosa and Walton counties, the two-story brick Baker School opened its doors for students. In 1921 it was classi ed as a junior high school. The school was heated by wood carried in by students. For many years, students had to use outdoor toilets across the road and drank from an outdoor, hand-pumped well. Students carried their lunches. If you were not careful where you placed your lunch, hogs on the school grounds would pick it up and then you were without, former Baker Block Museum curator Jeanette Henderson wrote in a history of Baker High School. An agriculture program was started in the schools basement in 1921. Home economics courses included cooking over a woodburning stove, and sewing lessons using a foot-pedaled machine. As the school continued to grow, in 1923 it became the rst accredited school in Okaloosa County, attracting students from Crestview, Munson and other communities. Baker Schools girls and boys basketball teams were formed in the early 20s, playing on a covered clay court. The girls team, coached by Opal Hogg Enzor, won several championship cups against Laurel Hill, Holt, Crestview and Munson. The boys team also periodically brought home championship cups. In 1927, a new high school building was begun across the street from the existing two-story school. Twenty-one seniors graduated from it in 1929. Two new basketball courts (one for boys, one for girls) were constructed in the late 1920s, as well as the rst agriculture building. In the mid-1930s, a school boxing ring was opened, and Baker students won the 1938-39 105pound championship in Pensacola. Henderson noted the boxing ring was also where disputes between students were settled. A gymnasium was built in 1948-49 and featured boys and girls dressing rooms with toilets. In 1950, a lunchroom was constructed, as well as the schools rst football stadium. Lights were added the following year. When the high school burned in 1953, the school board voted to rebuild rather than consolidate with Crestview. Until the new high school opened in 1955, some classes were held at the First Baptist Church. Other corners, including shade trees with weather permitting, provided space for classes, Henderson wrote. In 1957, the original two-story brick school was renovated, and the present gymnasium was built in 1958-59, opening in time for the Class of 59 to hold their graduation exercises in it. New high school classrooms and a new football stadium were completed in 1970, and, sadly, the landmark two-story brick school that started the whole Baker School success story was demolished in 1974.

That changed when she lost her big brother. Tyler was the Jones kid at Baker that everyone knew. He was football and track and everybody loved him, and then he was just gone, she said. In my freshman year, my parents said, You cant be a nerd anymore. You pick something and get involved in it, or we will pick it for you. Tylers death made me get more involved. The more I got involved the more goals I set for myself the more I knew that there could be no limitations. Academically, Jones is more than halfway into the completion of her associates degree through dual enrollment and will graduate from Baker with highest academic honors. Jones is president of LEO Club, (Leadership Experiences Opportunity) a branch of the Lions Club that encourages volunteerism in the community. She is president of the BETA Club and a staff major in Bakers JROTC program. She is in advanced honors studies and even has taken culinary classes. Jones is the schools STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) club vice president, Fellowship of Christian Athletes secretary and the Baker Student Government Association president. Jones has played on Bakers basketball and track teams. I threw the shot put 37 feet, 11 inches to take rst in Florida in the 1A Region 1, and I am really proud of my records in shot put and discus. I set goals, and I wanted them bad enough to go get them, she said. She recently signed with the University of South Alabama for a track scholarship and will start there in the fall. She plans to major in physical therapy or go into a medical eld. Baker Principal Tom Shipp chose Jones as his senior to be pro led for the Class of 2012. Morgan Jones is involved in a leadership capacity in many different aspects of student life at Baker, Shipp said. Morgan has been a driving force in several student initiatives, including the development of the Gator statue commons area. She is a well-rounded and delightful young lady. I am proud of her accomplishments and know she will do well (at) the University of South Alabama.

This is a big step in your life, and I am very proud of each of you. You have made my rst year back at Crestview High a very memorable and fun year. It has been great being reunited with those of you from Richbourg and getting to know those of you who attended Davidson. I wish I had been able to know all of you a lot longer. In the 40 years I have been in education, I have seen a lot of changes. However, one thing remains constant: you, the students. You know more about worldly things and have cooler toys like cellphones and laptops, but you are still trying to gure out who you are, where you want to go, and what you want to be. And, you still like to have fun. That hasnt changed since I graduated in 1967. My hope and my prayer for each of you is that you nd the answers to your questions, whatever they may be. Whether you are heading to college and post-graduate work, joining the military or entering the job market now, FROM THE PRINCIPAL Bob Jones, Crestview High School principal CRESTVIEW CLASS OF 2012 By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com When Crestview High School senior Ben White shot his famous Firework lip dub, the girl behind the guy behind the camera was Audrey Hamm. She was Bens dolly grip and pushed his wheeled chair through the school as he taped the exuberant production. Her integral role in what Audrey called the climax of my Crestview High story also typi es her preferred role as the eager supporter enthusiastically working, often behind the scenes, to get good things done. Shes involved in everything, but shes not the star, Principal Bob Jones said. Shes happy to be there and be supportive. In the video, she sacri ced being visible in order to push Ben around and make the video a success. All those values and those morals I have been building for myself have culminated in something that has reached far beyond my school, Audrey said. Audrey said involvement in student organizations, including the Spanish Club, the Dawg Pound, the Leadership Class and the yearbook staff, has expanded her horizons. One of the things I like BRIAN HUGHES | News Bulletin CHS Senior Audrey Hamm is known for her behind-the-scenes work at the school.Pushing her comfort zone and loving it See HAMM PAGE 13 See BOB JONES PAGE 9 Crestview High School Class of 2012Class Sponsor: Jean Porrata President: Branden Houser Vice President: Katie Toolan Secretary: Shealen Duncan Treasurer: Kasey York Representatives: Haley Simmons, Hanna Singletary, Zach Colby and Micaela Smith Class Color: Purple Flower: Lily Class Song: Tattoos on this Town by Jason Aldean Class motto: Hakuna Matata Swahili saying meaning there are no worries

6512685Just off of P.J. Adams RoadOpen 7 days a week 10:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Catering Services available for your Special Event From the News Bulletin ArchivesIn 1879, the rst Crestview School began in what was then Walton County. The school, a two-story frame building, stood where the Garden of Memories cemetery is located on State Road 85. Fire destroyed the building in 1916. School was held in two churches until a small two-story building across from the courthouse could be secured for use as a school. In 1922, the corner of U.S. Highway 90 and Ferdon Boulevard was the site for the new school. The rst class, which consisted of three seniors, graduated in 1924. The rst year of organized football at Crestview was 1927, and the rst band formed in 1938 with 48 members directed under the baton of Romulus H. Thompson. Thanks to Thompson, the school also got a new football stadium, where also in 1938, the rst night-time game in Okaloosa County was played. Called Sandspur Stadium in honor of the vegetation that lled the original stadium, it was built to provide the band with a suitable venue for a halftime performance. Half the gate receipts (at $1 a ticket) went to the band. The stucco school was enlarged in 1927 and burned in December 1953. Scores of townsfolk dashed to the early morning re and managed to save the band equipment, three pianos, most of the typewriters and most of the records. The schools wooden lunchroom was saved by re ghters. The library and textbooks were lost. The wooden lunchroom survives today. It was given to the Crestview Womans Club, who moved it to Woodlawn Avenue for their clubhouse. A new school already was under construction, and work was almost completed on the new building. Crestview High Schools 550 students moved into their new school in January 1954. It is now Richbourg ESE School. Crestview High School opened in 1969 at its present location, 1250 North Ferdon Blvd. From its humble beginnings in 1879 in a small wooden building, public schools in Crestview have grown to ve elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. Crestview High continues to grow and progress by offering a wide variety of educational opportunities to anyone who takes pride in being a Crestview Bulldog.

If there is any wisdom I can pass on to you, it is this: Think about what you really love doing and find a way to make that a career. Your life will be a great adventure if you are doing what you love. There will be lots of bad times and many days that are not good, but, over the long run, you will have a better quality life if you love your work. I know that works for me. I dont love every day here at CHS, but I do love my job. Again, congratulations to all of you in the Class of 2012! I wish you the very best along the rest of your journey. It has been a privilege and an honor to be your principal this year.

Crestview High School Class of 2012 in Pictures Congratulations Joey Collins, proud graduate of Niceville High School. about extracurricular (activities) is you have the chance to make memories, Audrey said. The Spanish Club, for example, has taught her a lot about Hispanic culture. The Dawg Pound, she said, uni es diverse students around the goal of raising school spirit. But being on the Crimson Crest yearbook staff has pushed Audrey out of her comfort zone, and that, she said, is a good thing. Its more than just creating a work of value its telling a story about what happened during the year and what made the year special, Audrey said. Our angle is to tell the most objective story. You dont want to just put pictures of your friends in it. It forces you out of your comfort zone. It forces you to experience other clubs and organizations. It de nitely gives you the opportunity to appreciate what other people do. It makes you a less selfcentered person. It teaches you to value other peoples work and their opinions and how to take constructive criticism and work together as a team. An AP honors student who will major in biology at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, in the fall, Audrey is the daughter of Ken and Kim Hamm, and the third of ve children. With the support of her family, the foundation of values she received at Crestview High School and especially the strength she nds in her faith in God, Audrey is eager to face the next chapter in her life. There is so much merit to attending Crestview High, she said. I have guidance counselors who support me and understand me and teachers who want me to succeed. Best of all, I have parents who taught me that I need to do well in school. They taught me that I need to value my education as much as I do my other Christian values. HAMM from Page 8Shes involved in everything, but shes not the star. Shes happy to be there and be supportive.Crestview Principal Bob Jones At left, CHS student Courtney Nicaise portrays a DUI and texting-while-driving accident victim at the Baker School Dont Drive In-TEXT-icated program.

Because his parents, Kent and Mandy Zessin, both teach at Laurel Hill School, Tyler was raised a Hobo. Laurel Hills unique kindergarten-through-highschool constituency is one of its strengths, he said. When I was a kid, I thought it was cool how the high schoolers would interact with us, and now I can interact with the little kids, Tyler said. I have conversations with kindergartners on a daily basis. Tyler Zessin is an amazing young man.

Laurel Hill School Class of 2012 By Mark C. Curenton From the News Bulletin Archives Even before its incorporation, the community we know today as Laurel Hill recognized the importance of investing in the education of our children. In 1891, the community, then part of Walton County, built its rst school, a one-room log building southwest of town, less than a mile east of the laurel tree from which the town took its name. The county paid a teacher a remarkably low salary to conduct a threemonth summer term for children of all ages. Five years later, the county built more comfortable desks and a larger playground. Nearby, small schools were started in the communities of Sardis, Magnolia, Svea and Central. By 1919, as Laurel Hill, then part of the newly formed Okaloosa County, continued to grow, a two-story brick school with 12 classrooms plus an auditorium with a stage was constructed. The small regional area schools were consolidated into Laurel Hills new school, which offered classes for grades one through 12. Home economics and vocational agriculture were added to the curriculum. The rst graduating class in 1922 had one student. In 1925, the school was added to the states accredited list, a commercial department was added in 1927 and by 1928 there were three graduates. Disaster struck when in 1931 the school burned and the Great Depression delayed immediate rebuilding. Classes continued unabated, however, in various locations throughout the community. By 1934, bonds had been issued to begin the new Laurel Hill School, which was moved to a more suitable location half a mile south of town to its present location. Using Works Progress Administration labor, the new school included 16 classrooms, a library, an of ce and an auditorium/gymnasium. More courses were added to the curriculum. The 1955-56 school year saw the completion of a lunch room/auditorium where hot lunches were prepared for the growing student body. The same year, a vocational agriculture building was added, complete with a classroom, workshop and an of ce. The 60s were a decade of progress, with a full-time secretary added to the staff and projectors, recorders and record players enriching the library program. Much-needed hall lockers were welcomed by the student body, and needed storage space and an equipment shed were added. But perhaps most important was the addition of a long-needed kindergarten program for 5-year-olds. At the same time, Laurel Hill School was completely integrated. During the 1969-70 school year, the growing athletic program was rewarded with a new gymnasium at a cost of $152,000, boasting a 90-by-50-foot playing oor and seating for 850 fans. The former gymnasium enhanced the arts education with its conversion into classrooms for visual and music arts, as well as for the kindergarten. In 1972, a greenhouse was built and horticulture was added to the curriculum. The class of 1972, composed of 19 seniors, was the last to graduate from this building: Disaster struck again when lightning struck the building in July, setting it a re and destroying all but the gymnasium, cafetorium and vocational agriculture buildings. But Laurel Hill again proved its resiliency, and the next school year started on time on Aug. 28, with classes housed in hastily erected barracks and portable classrooms. A new, modern school building was begun in March 1973. At the end of the term, 30 seniors received their diplomas, two weeks after the new building was ready for occupancy. The new school came complete with modern furnishings, central heat and air conditioning and carpeting throughout. In 1976-77, a larger and more attractive cafetorium was constructed with an enlarged kitchen, folding doors to create several multipurpose areas and a seating capacity of 250. The schools breakfast program began at this time, and the former cafetorium became classrooms for music, art, special education and compensatory education. The agriculture building was completely remodeled during the 1983-84 school year, and a new weight room was built in the summer of 1984 for Laurel Hills championship Hobo athletes. A new one-penny countywide tax dedicated to education allowed the school to add six new elementary classrooms, four high school classrooms, a teachers lounge and two faculty restrooms during the 1996-97 year. In recent years, a new elementary playground was constructed; the girls softball team received new dugouts, backstops and a home run fence; and the boys and girls locker rooms were completely renovated. Computer labs were added and have been upgraded for both high school and elementary students, and new carpeting and tile was installed in the main building. The science lab has been renovated and upgraded, security gates were added to the gym entrances and the gym was air conditioned. New landscaping and sidewalk repairs enhance the appearance of the school. Originally printed in the Laurel Hill Community Guide, published by the Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church.

Ferdon Blvd. Crestview, Florida Lowrey-Sexton said. Its been an absolute pleasure to have watched him grow up, making the most of his talents and abilities, with humility and a commitment to what is good in his life. With his dad as a Hobo coach, its only logical that Tyler soon joined the schools teams. In fact, his love of sports takes up much of his extracurricular hours. If Im not here in school, Im doing something sports-related, he said. I really dont have a lot of free time during sports seasons. But there is also more to this busy seniors life. Clubs take up lots of time, too, Tyler said. This year he is president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, president of the Beta Club and school resource adviser on the Student Council. When other students need to know the ins and outs of Laurel Hill School, especially if theyre newcomers, as an insider, its the school resource adviser whose advice they seek. If another student has a question, they come to me, Tyler said. In the fall, Tyler plans to attend Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in Andalusia, Ala., and major in education administration. He then plans to continue studying in that eld, preferably at Auburn or Florida State University, before returning to school as an educator. I honestly couldnt see myself doing anything else, Tyler said. Ive always loved school. Ive talked to my teachers about becoming a teacher, and they say as long as you do something you love, youll never work a day in your life. Tyler was quick to add he wants to be a teacher as well as a sports coach, or perhaps even a physical education teacher. Maybe someday Ill get a job in the administration of ce, he said. Tyler encouraged the students who follow him to take advantage of Laurel Hill Schools many opportunities. Enjoy it while youre here, he said. Never take anything for granted because these years go by fast. Get involved in sports and clubs. Besides, it looks great on college applications!

ALMA MATERS Salute to the Class of 2012 Family Owned & OperatedbyHeather & Andy Powell436 West James Lee Blvd., Crestview, FL 682-3052 Best Wishes to all 2012 Graduates! 1147 S. FERDON BLVD., CRESTVIEW, FL 32536 (850) 682-3366WISE EQUIPMENT SALES & SERVICEFor all your lawn care & maintenance needs!Congratulations Class of 2012! THE TUNE BEHIND OUR From the News Bulletin ArchivesWhat do the alma maters of Baker, Crestview and Laurel Hill high schools have in common with those of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Emory and Vanderbilt universities? They and more than 20 other colleges and universities, plus uncountable middle and high schools nationwide, including one in Andalusia, Ala. all share the same tune. Best known as Cornell Universitys Far Above Cayugas Waters, it was rst adapted in 1870 by a pair of Cornell roommates, using a slight variation on a melody by New Englander H.S. Thompson from his 1857 ballad Annie Lisle (rhymes with while). The rst verse of the rst alma mater to appropriate Thompsons ballad goes: Far above Cayugas waters, with its waves of blue, Stands our noble alma mater, glorious to view. Lift the chorus, Speed it onward, Loud her praises tell; Hail to thee, our alma mater! Hail, all hail, Cornell! But far from being the cheerful, rousing, inspirational tune that might inspire an alma mater, Annie Lisle is a sad, depressing lament. It is generally considered, though not speci cally mentioned in the lyrics, that poor Annie died of tuberculosis. Originally published by Oliver Ditson & Co., the antebellum tunes chorus goes: Wave willows, Murmur waters, Golden sunbeams, smile! Earthly music cannot waken Lovely Annie Lisle. Though the lyrics to Annie Lisle have drifted into obscurity (which some might nd something of a relief), the songs music lives on in the hearts of loyal Gators, Bulldogs and Hoboes county-wide. BAKER SCHOOL ALMA MATER On a far off southern border A writ against the sky Proudly waves our Alma Mater As the years roll by. Baker High School Baker High School May she live for aye. May her teams be ever winners And her pride display. CRESTVIEW HIGH SCHOOL ALMA MATER As we stand here At your portals, And our voices rise, Singing of our dear, fond memories Of old Crestview High. Praises to our Alma Mater Let our praises ring. We will never, neer forget thee. Praises we will sing. LAUREL HILL SCHOOL ALMA MATER Mong the rolling Hills of Florida In a sleepy town Stands our noble Alma Mater, Proudly looks she down. Lift your voices, Sing her praises Over rock and rill. Hail to thee our Alma Mater, Hail to Laurel Hill. Crestview News Bulletin | 23Saturday, May 26, 2012
