Technically a hurrex, or hurricane exercise, Hurricane Gispert (named for an emergency planner in Hillsborough County) was modeled on 1998s Hurricane Georges. That storms severe ooding rendered Crestview an island cut off from surrounding communities. Crestview Fire Department veterans Battalion Chief Tony Holland and Assistant Chief Ralph Everage were on duty during Georges. When Randy McDaniel, chief of Okaloosa Countys Emergency Management department, asked Crestview emergency responders to join the Hurrex Gispert exercise, their rst-hand experience proved invaluable. Randy had asked for some input from Crestview, Everage explained. He wanted something other than a coastal component and asked for some input from us. We wanted them to consider what they could possibly need in the city shortfalls they would have in a ooding event, making us jump through the hoops to nd those things for them, McDaniel said. As the virtual storm approached at 8 a.m. May 24, Holland and Everage logged into WebEOC, an Internetbased communications system used by emergency management agencies throughout the county. The system is also linked to the state Emergency Operations Center in Tallahassee, which monitored the states local Gispert exercises. Using their experience from past storms, Holland and Everage devised injects, or storm-related emergency situation scenarios, and entered them into WebEOC. As the storm buffeted the region, Holland entered, In the area of (State Road) 85 and (U.S. Highway) 90 there are power lines down and the traf c light is on the ground. The scenario and others from neighboring agencies owed into the system. County Emergency Management staff prioritized the incidents and assigned them to various emergency services function (ESF) organizations. ESFs include county and municipal public works of ces, re and searchand-rescue units, the Red Cross and Salvation Army, public utilities, the military, law enforcement agencies, municipal governments, the county health department, and animal control. Other organizations include the Division of Forestry, local and county purchasing departments, city planning agencies and the Department of Children and Families, public relations and media. Stirring up trouble Crestview FD throws a few local twists at Hurricane Gispert By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Their primary and secondary schooling behind them, with last nights graduation, Crestview High Schools seniors are eager and ready to head out into the real world and discover what life has in store for them. To sample the feelings of the class of 2012, the News Bulletin caught up with several seniors during Senior Week activities. Universally, Crestviews high school seniors were found in a mixture of joy, excitement, anticipation and perhaps just a slightest hint of trepidation about the new world that awaits them. Many will head to college, some taking the plunge and heading far away from their familiar home turf, others starting gingerly at a college closer to home. Aaron Jenkins, still damp from a giant, homemade slip-n-slide on the schools ball eld during Senior Field Day, is among the latter. Im going to UWF (University of West Florida in Off to the real world CHS seniors prepare for college See TROUBLE A3 By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com The sole member of the Richbourg E.S.E. School Class of 2012 marched into a wildly cheering gymnasium and was genuinely surprised by the outpouring of heartfelt congratulations from the family, friends, schoolmates, faculty, staff and representatives from the Okaloosa County School District who gathered to share his special day. John Andrew Lawrence was this years only graduate from north Okaloosas special needs school, where he was king of the schools April 20 prom. But while many students graduating from area schools cant wait to leave their halls of learning behind them, John cant wait to go back. Hes going to be doing the schools summer program, his mother Cheryl Lawrence said. John loves, loves, loves school. Cheryl and Ben-z Lawrence adopted their oldest son from Bowling Green, Ky., when he was 9 and his younger brother, Caleb, whom John calls Bubba, was 3. John has mental retardation, Cheryl said, and thats the politically correct term. While at Richbourg, John demonstrated an af nity for caring for the younger students and was frequently called on by staff members to help them out. Principal Christy Corbin has offered to let him return to his alma mater as a volunteer, Cheryl Lawrence said. The kids just love him. He reacts so well with all of them, she said. They relate to John because they know John is a student. Cheryl Lawrence praised Corbin and her staff for creating an environment that led to her sons success, culminating in his memorable graduation ceremony at which Deputy Superintendent Rodney Nobles presented John his diploma as school board representative Cathy Thigpen applauded.

Hwy 85 Crestview, FL 32539 850-682-3111 www.fnbcrestview.com YourHometownBankSince1956 Your Hometown Bank Since 1956 Hometown Bankers, Hometown Decisions, Hometown Loans & Hometown Service Former Dorcas Fire District bookkeeper Courtney Lingenfelter was charged last month with grand theft and 19 counts of uttering a forged instrument. According to a State Attorneys Ofce afdavit, Lingenfelter admitted to writing $6,634 in unauthorized checks out of the volunteer re departments checking accounts for her own personal use. It is an all-too familiar turn of events. In April, former Laurel Hill City Clerk Stephanie Davis pleaded no contest to felony larceny charges after she was accused of stealing city funds. According to Davis arrest report, Laurel Hill Mayor Joan Smith told investigators that the estimated amount Davis is accused of taking totaled $7,509. Then, of course, there is the case of Mark Bellinger, the former executive director of the Okaloosa County Tourist Development Council, who died May 4, in Pelham, Ala., of a suspected drug overdose. Shortly before his death, Bellinger admitted to Okaloosa County commissioners he used $710,000 to purchase a yacht, and the FBI says he used $747,000 in BP oil spill funds to purchase a home. In February 2011, members of the board of commissioners for the Almarante Fire Department fired then Fire Chief David Henderson over more than $1,966 in purchases and cash withdrawals from the volunteer fire departments bank account in 2009 and 2010. Among other things, Hendersons fire department debit card was used in April 2010 to withdraw $503 in cash at the Wind Creek Casino & Hotel in Atmore, Ala., board members said. A $165 hotel room was charged to the departments account the same night. And who can forget the August 2009 sentencing of former Okaloosa County Sheriff Charlie Morris, who pleaded guilty to six federal charges, including theft, fraud and money laundering? Morris was sentenced to 71 months in prison after FBI agents found he masterminded a scheme to take thousands of taxpayer dollars used for gambling and other personal ventures. The surprise isnt that allegations of embezzlement keep cropping up. Anyone who follows the news knows that theft of taxpayer money is often reported in cities and counties all across the nation, and the world for that matter. The surprise is that, given the commonality of the problem, officials arent more watchful. In almost all of the cases listed above, if members of the re department boards, the Laurel Hill City Council, or in the case of the TDC, Okaloosa County commissioners, had examined monthly nancial statements, they would have quickly realized something was amiss. Because no one was watching, all of the alleged thefts occurred over a period of months, if not longer. Monitoring those charged with spending taxpayer money is a fundamental duty of any elected body volunteer or paid. Hopefully someone is paying attention.

Its never been your right to smoke wherever you want. Thats not going to work for your hardcore generations and your military vets. I think in your car is overstepping bounds. Does that mean no more bus drivers standing around across the street from the school having a smoke before picking up the kids? Nope, it means on school grounds. Private property is still OK.

They screen them and task them wher ever they need to go. I could task Crestview through the same sys tem, McDaniel said. It allows us to collaborate and use our resources to the utmost. We cant be an island in a disaster. I have resources that Crestview may need and they have resources I may need and everybody works together to share those resources and prioritize them. An hour and a half into the exercise, the moni tor at Crestviews Public Safety Station 1 suddenly froze. This is why we do drills, Holland said as he rebooted the computer. When the system failed to come up, he and Everage realized the problem was not their equipment. Twen ty minutes later, the system was back up. Fortunately, failure of the main link be tween agencies was a con tingency that is included in the countys plans. It allowed us to test our Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP), McDaniel said. When our system crashed, our plan sent us back to doing it the old way, with three-part forms. When the system went down, we continued to col lect the data. When the system came back up, we entered the data into WebEOC. We lost nothing. Later, McDaniel said, an investigation by coun ty computer technicians found the cause of the crash. What we found is the vendor for our system sent us an update and the up date had a bug in it, Mc Daniel said. They had to send us a x the next day but without the exercise, we wouldnt have known there was a bug in it. Its really a nice sys tem, Everage said. Were just working the bugs out of it. I dont like surprises so Id rather have it break before I need it than when I need it, McDaniel said. The exercise worked well. WORLD from page A1 Pensacola) for the rst two years, he said. I want to stay close and get the hang of college, then I plan to go to USF (University of South Florida) in Tampa. His pal Derek Lovelace, equally wet, is going a bit farther, to a college over the border in Alabama. I actually have a base ball scholarship to play ball at Faulkner State College in Fairhope, Derek said. Im very excited. Im going to hang around for the summer before I get out of here. Like Derek, most of the grads are planning a care free summer, enjoying days that revolve around summer jobs and hanging out with best friends before the sum mons of higher education scatters close companions, many of whom have been to gether since middle or even elementary school. Kara Vonada is both ex cited and a bit saddened that her goals will uproot her from Crestview within a couple weeks, depositing her in Cocoa Beach, where she plans to nd a job and save money before starting school in the fall. While her college studies have her ex cited, its leaving her friends so soon after graduation thats the sad part. Im going to Rosen Col lege at the University of Central Florida, Kara said. I want to major in hospital ity management. But Im go ing to miss these guys. Among these guys is Ty ler Colonna, selected by his peers as this years Bulldog Idol for his musical prowess. While college is denitely in his future, saving for it is a greater priority right now for Tyler, who promised to keep making music as well. Im going to work and save up money for school, he said. Im going to hold two jobs: selling conces sions at Durell Lee Park and working at Publix. And Im going to do some modeling at Abercrombie & Fitch in Destin Commons. Another of Karas pals, James Purcell, is also one of Tylers colleagues at Publix. Im going to college in Savannah (Ga.) at Arm strong Atlantic State Univer sity, James said. Ill study civil engineering. With eight years of pri mary school and four years of secondary school now be hind them, the seniors didnt expect that those 12 years could rush by so quickly. Its been quick, Aaron said. I didnt expect it to go this fast, especially the last four years. Its a crazy feeling, Ty ler agreed. It still feels unreal, James added. It ew by, but were ready! Kara said, summing up her friends feelings. GRADUATION from page A1 countys only special needs school was Silver Sands School in Fort Walton Beach. The opening of Rich bourg School in August 2010 was a relief for north Oka loosa County special needs students and their families, educators said. It currently enrolls nearly 50 students from age 3 to 22. They have all the right people at Richbourg, Cher yl Lawrence said. Things are really clicking there. Vocational training is an important part of Rich bourgs curriculum. With his job coach providing ad vice and encouragement, John worked at Ms. Bs BBQ and Bakery this se mester, where he was soon embraced by restaurant owner Belinda Gibbons and her staff. They just loved him, Cheryl Lawrence said. It seems everywhere he goes people become really at tached to him. We are just really blessed in that way. Cheryl Lawrence said people might be surprised to know the number of spe cial needs students in north ern Okaloosa County. Richbourg is just as good if not better than Sil ver Sands and we are so fortunate to have this in our community, she said. Its awesome! The care the school put into assuring its single graduate had a gradua tion hell always remember typies the attention each student receives, Cheryl Lawrence said. Richbourg really went out of their way to make his day special even though it was just one kid graduating. Everybody went wild when he came into the room, she said. The whole school was there He looked like a deer in the headlights. He was just amazed! A social, featuring a huge sheet cake donated by Chatty Cakes in Baker, followed Johns gradua tion ceremony, which was attended by nearly 25 fam ily members and friends, including his Richbourg School family. And they are a family, Cheryl Lawrence said. Ex ceptional students must be given an exceptional edu cation. They (Richbourgs staff) are a huge asset to this community and the families that they serve with kids of special needs.

Now Daugherty is counting on the support of some of those customers. The 16-year Lee employee is suf fering from debilitating illness, the dealerships general manager, Scott Lee, said. Hes battling stage four lung cancer, Lee said sadly. Hes been with us a long time. Were trying to help him out. On May 25, Lee had Ronnie Lunsford, a locally renowned barbecue pit master with S&L Auto Body, bring his mobile meat smoker over to the GMC dealership, where he smoked several dozen succulent Boston butts. Melanie Fullerton from Okaloosa County Teachers Federal Credit Union organized the fundraiser, which raised nearly $3,500. In addition to Boston butts, orga nizers rafed off a hunting bow do nated by Daughertys son Ken, Ful lerton said, with local outdoorsman Rudy Dukes winning the weapon. We had great participation from the community. We were just glad we could help him out, Fullerton said. He enjoyed everybody coming by and getting to see everyone. That was a highlight for Pete. Fullerton also helped establish an account at the credit union to assist Daugherty with his medical expenses. We have the account open for anyone who wants to make a contri bution, Fullerton said. Any old customers or friends who want to help Pete out can do nate at the credit union, Lee said. Well also take checks here. We had a customer that came in just to pick up a (vehicle) manual, and he wrote a check on the spot. Lee Buick-GMC salesman Dale Henderson has been with the deal ership as long as Daugherty and eagerly displayed the hunting bow to people who might be interested in buying a chance to win the weapon. I started here one week, and Pete started the next week, Henderson said. He and I are the original last of the Mohicans here. Pete Daugherty, wearing his Lee Buick-GMC nametag as he leaned heavily on a cane, said he was touched by the care and affection that he felt from his boss and colleagues. Many of the car places dont care what youre going to do next month. They just care about now, Daugh erty said. This is a real, real car family. They care about the people that work here and the people that come in here to buy a car. For Petes sake WANT TO HELP?

HERES TO YOUR 2012 Community Seminar Series 2012 Community Seminar Series HERES TO YOUR 2074243 Special to the News Bulletin Most pastors I know believe that worship is the most important aspect of church life. Worship is central to remembering the presence of God, and being reassured of Gods love, grace and forgiveness. Worshiping God and remembering the Sabbath is essential to remembering whose we are and whose God is, remembering who we are, and who we were created to be. This is probably why pastors spend so much time and energy preparing sermons and prayers, and selecting appropriate hymns. This is an attempt to have worship be a time of fulllment, not only to us, but ultimately to God. There are times, I know, when people think ministers spend too much time preparing sermons. A while ago the British Weekly printed a letter to the editor. It read: Dear Sir: I notice that ministers seem to set a great deal of importance on their sermons and spend a great deal of time in preparing them. I have been attending services quite regularly for the past thirty years and during that time, if I estimate correctly, I have listened to no less than 3,000 sermons, but, to my consternation, I discover I cannot remember a single one of them. I wonder if a ministers time might be more protably spent on something else? Sincerely.... That letter triggered an avalanche of angry responses for weeks. Sermons were castigated and defended by lay and clergy, but eventually a single letter closed the debate: My dear Sir: I have been married for thirty years. During that time I have eaten 32,850 meals mostly of my wifes cooking. Suddenly I have discovered that I cannot remember the menu of a single meal. And yet, I received nourishment from every one of them. I have the distinct impression that without them, I would have starved to death long ago. Sincerely.... Worship is important. Remembering and observing the Sabbath, and resting in Gods presence, is vitally important to who we are. We are to take time to refresh ourselves in the way God intended. Some time ago I saw a bumper sticker that read, Jesus is coming soon. Look busy! It made me laugh, but then I got to thinking about the message of that sticker. Look busy. It didnt say anything about focusing on what is important. When we run around all the time, we will eventually run down. And unfortunately, even in our leisure time we rush around to do everything we are supposed to do in order to have fun at least, thats what the advertisements say. We can become so busy rushing around doing things that we can self-destruct. Several years ago, newspapers told how a new Navy jet ghter shot itself down. While ying at supersonic speed, it ran into cannon shells it had red only a few seconds before. The jet was traveling too fast! If someone doesnt have time to worship God in regular church services, if there isnt time to read the Bible, if time is not made to pray, one will not reap the benets of Sabbath rest. Gods voice cannot be heard. You see, I dont think rushing around is how God intended for us to live. I believe God gave us the Sabbath as a way for us to slow down, to have us stop for a brief time to catch our breath and reect on our relationship with him. There are too many other distractions in this world six days a week that can draw our attention away from God. We need to keep one day a week sacred for remembering him, praising him, worshiping him, and resting in him. Worshiping God and having Sabbath rest are essential to who we are and how we live. Its like the woodcutter of years ago who approached the foreman of a logging crew and asked for a job. That depends, replied the foreman. Lets see you fell this tree. The young man stepped forward and skillfully dropped a great tree. Impressed, the foreman exclaimed, Start Monday! Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday rolled by, and Thursday afternoon the foreman approached the young man and said, You can pick up your paycheck on the way out today. Startled, he replied, I thought you paid on Friday. Normally we do, answered the foreman, but were letting you go today because youve fallen behind. Our daily charts show that youve dropped from first place on Monday to last on Wednesday. But Im a hard worker, the young man objected. I arrive first, leave last, and even have worked through my coffee breaks! The foreman, sensing the boys integrity, thought for a minute and then asked, Have you been sharpening your ax? The young man replied, Ive been working too hard to take the time. We have to stop periodically to rest, to recharge our batteries, to sharpen our spiritual lives. We need to take Sabbath rest and worship seriously. Otherwise we lose our edge and become dull in our relationship with God. This summer, be sure you take time to rest physically. Be sure to take time to rest in Gods presence by worshipping God. You may just be amazed at how wonderful it feels to be recreated by spending time enjoying some Sabbath rest. Rev.

Special to the News Bulletin Saltwater recreational anglers can sh in Florida without a shing license today and a license wont be needed June 9 to sh in the states freshwater rivers, streams and lakes. The rst week of June is National Fishing and Boating Week and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is offering licensefree shing on the two Saturdays to encourage residents to experience the states shing opportunities. Floridas licensefree shing days are an excellent opportunity to share the fun, excitement and togetherness of a shing trip with the entire family, said Nick Wiley, FWC executive director. This also is a great time for experienced anglers to introduce friends to the sport, even if they dont have a shing license. By having these events on weekends, we hope Florida residents and visitors will experience the joy of saltwater and freshwater shing. We expect many will discover a healthy sport they can enjoy for a lifetime. Saltwater anglers can try their hand today at catching a red snapper, which will be open for harvest in Gulf and Atlantic state waters and Gulf federal waters for the license-free shing day. Want to stick a little closer to shore? Try your hand at near-shore species such as spotted seatrout or red drum. Cant make the June 2 or June 9 license-free shing days? The FWC also made Sept. 1 a license-free saltwater shing day, which not only falls on a holiday weekend, but is during the popular bay scallop and spiny lobster seasons. Each year, the rst Saturday in April and second Saturday in June will be license-free freshwater shing days. All other bag limit, season and size restrictions apply on these dates. For more information check out www.MyFWC. com/Fishing for shing tips, locations and rules. REV.

By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com The Crestview High School boys soccer team will host a soccer camp June 4-8 from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at Davidson Middle School for players going into kindergarten through the seventh grade. The camp, which will be led by Bulldog coach Scottie Milton, assistant coach Nick Kootsouradis and the Crestview varsity players, costs $60. Players should bring their own soccer ball and water. The camp will focus on soccer basics of dribbling, passing and shooting in a fun setting that will include daily games of four-on-four. Milton, who enters his third year as the Bulldog coach, draws from a wealth of experience in training young players. Milton played collegiately at the University of Mobile, is a past assistant coach at the University of West Florida and former head coach at Andrew College in Georgia. We are looking to the future as coach Scottie is starting his third season with us, Kootsouradis said. We are looking to develop players starting with the kindergartners all the way up to the seventh graders to hopefully compete with some of these other cities in the area. We want to build the soccer program here in Crestview from the ground up. One of the ways the Bulldogs hope to establish that ground up approach is by having the varsity players work at the camp. What we are planning to do is have our high school age boys come to the youth camp, Kootsouradis said. They will earn service hours for scholarships while working with the younger players. It wont be one-on-one (coaching) but there will be many different coaches there and the high school boys will be helping out, kind of like Tim Gillis does with the baseball camp. Its important to get our players involved because the younger boys will de nitely look up to the juniors and seniors. The Bulldog camp takes place a week before the soccer camp at Twin Hills Park, sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Department. Kootsouradis encouraged players to attend both camps if possible. He does believe the Bulldog camp will offer a little something extra for those serious about playing at the middle school or high school levels. I would say if your child wants to play competitive ball if you think your child is going to be the athlete that is going to play in middle school and high school send them to the Crestview Bulldog camp because we are focusing on competitive soccer, he said. If you want everybody to have fun and make friends then send them to the city soccer. For more information or to register for the camp email Nick Kootsouradis at crestviewcrew@ cox.net. By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com Aspiring baseball players ages 413 have an opportunity pick up some pointers to improve their game at the annual Crestview Bulldog Baseball Camp scheduled for June 11-13 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Crestview High School baseball eld. Registration for the camp will be from 8-9 a.m. June 11. Cost of the camp is $75 per player and includes a T-shirt, a pizza lunch on June 13 and admission to the Justin Richards Scholarship Tournament June 13-16. Crestview baseball coach Tim Gillis, a former minor leaguer in the Atlanta organization, is the lead instructor at the camp. Other Bulldog coaches and Crestview baseball players will assist him. We are looking forward to it (the camp), Gillis said. Thats something that is fun and you get a different perspective on the game when you are around the young kids for a couple of days and see their eagerness for the game. The camp will focus on the baseball basics of hitting, elding and throwing. There also will be a lesser emphasis on pitching and base running. We do all those things (teaching skills), but we try to have as much fun with it as we can, Gillis said. We nish each day up with games, which they just love, and it kind of lets you put everything in that youve talked to them about. And then you can stop and have teaching moments along the way that you need to. Gillis stressed the importance of having the Bulldog players involved with the camp. If you look at it from our players standpoint you see there is an obligation that goes with being a high school baseball player, he said. Those kids look up to you (the Bulldog player) and they watch you. They watch what kind of car you drive up in and how you leave in that car. How they (the players) interact with those kids on a daily basis is a big eye opener for all of us. You watch and you see the guys that kind of take the bull by the horns and they are the guys that take ownership of that group. Its a true sign of leadership and its obviously something I really pay a lot of attention to. Gillis thinks working at the camp also allows the Bulldog players to remember what it was like when they rst started playing the game. I think when you get that perspective of looking at the kids at the start it makes you appreciate what youve been through your whole career and where you are, he said. And hopefully it makes you want to work a little harder. Thats what it is all about.
