The council approved council member Robyn Helts motion for the city to advertise for a building inspector at a salary of $60,600 plus bene ts. The motion passed 3-2, with council member Thomas Gordon and Council President Ben Iannucci III voting nay. Since Daigles retirement, Crestview has been paying Okaloosa County $100 per hour for building inspections done by a county inspector. At its June 11 council meeting, the body approved a $1,125 county invoice for May inspections and reviews of submitted building plans. Helt has been emphatic at recent meetings that building inspections is a service the city needs to provide its residents. When the city requested the county lower its rate to $75 an hour, it should have been considered an interim, temporary action, she said. The action well take tonight is a Band-Aid x and I dont like a Band-Aid x, Helt said at a June 11 meeting. I want us to correct this issue and move on.I still feel this city needs a building of cial that this city has direct oversight over. My position will be the same in two weeks when we meet again, and if we dont resolve this, it will be my position two weeks after that. At Monday evenings council meeting, Gordon, citing occasions when not much building would be underway, suggested hiring a part-time building inspector, Helt immediately moved to make the position full time, because an inspector is needed 12 months of the year. Helt pointed out the service can also be a revenue stream for the city, if not at least a break-even service. I think this makes sense and it is the right thing to do, Helt said. The city is growing and it will continue to grow, and I think the city needs to be in charge. We lose control when we do that (hire a county inspector). We lose the ability to provide oversight and I am frankly not going to put the citizens of Crestview in that position. I have a problem hiring someone on a fulltime basis From staff reports DAYTONA BEACH Halifax Media Group on Wednesday closed a deal with Freedom Communications to purchase eight daily and 11 weekly publications located in Florida and North Carolina, including the Crestview News Bulletin.

Locals seeking ying reworks cross over the line Crestview City Council to hire building official MICHAEL REDDING CEO of Halifax Media Group Halifax Media Group closes paper deal Florida sparkles, By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com A visitor to the two popular reworks shops in Florala, Ala., can often nd as many, if not more, cars with Florida tags in the parking lot as those with local Alabama plates.

Anything that ies through the air, explodes or detonates is considered illegal in the state of Florida, Crestview Police Department spokesman Lt. Andrew Schneider said. Anything that sends out showers of sparks, makes popping noises and that stays on the ground is allowed. Both Bettys Fireworks and, two blocks away, Buddys Discount Fireworks are family-owned businesses that stock sparklers and novelty noisemakers permitted under Florida law. Both likewise have ample stock of all the reworks forbidden in the Sunshine State that y, whoosh, whiz, bang, explode and send down showers of sparkles. Were the oldest reworks distributor in the state of Alabama, Buddy Holley, proprietor of Buddys Fireworks said proudly. I was selling reworks since I was 9. Both stores rely heavily on Florida customers, as well as folks passing through Florala heading to and from the Northwest Florida beaches. Holley makes sure they know right where explodes Alabama FLORIDAS FIREWORKS LAW According to Florida Statutes Title XLVI, Chapter 791.01, prohibited reworks means and includes any article prepared for the purpose of producing a visible or audible effect by combustion, explosion, de agration, or detonation. The term includes blank cartridges and toy cannons in which explosives are used, the type of balloons which require re underneath to propel them, recrackers, torpedoes, skyrockets, roman candles, dago bombs, and any reworks containing any explosives or ammable compound or any tablets or other device containing any explosive substance.

We advertise all over in Alabama, Jacksonville, Lake City, Biloxi (Miss.), Northwest Florida and Tennessee, Holley said. We have people that come early to avoid the last-min ute crowd. So far most of our traf c is out-of-town people going to the beach, San dy Hunt, who purchased Bettys Fireworks from her grandmother, Betty Stew art, said. We have repeat people. We have the same people who come through year after year on their way to the beach and they stop by. Business has been a little slow at Bettys, Hunt said earlier this week, but she said Florida shoppers usually wait until the last minute. I think the business is slow because the Fourth has fallen on a Wednes day, she said. This week end will tell. Hopefully ev eryone is waiting for this weekend. The Florida traf c usually comes the last couple weeks before the Fourth. Okaloosa County resi dent Dan Sullivan was browsing Holleys aisles earlier this week, his bas ket getting progressively heavier as his son John son and his pal, Kenneth Goodman, scampered up and added more reworks to it. We come back and forth to Florala all the time, Dan Sullivan said, saying his family has a home in Andalusia. We get all our reworks while were up here. Ive been coming up here all my life. Its loyal customers like the Sullivan family that in spire Holley to pour some of his prots into support ing causes throughout the region, including reworks displays for Crestview church organizations, Flo rala High School athlet ics, and the local Masonic lodge. With Florala celebrating its annual June 24th Festi val a week later than usual, the owners of both stores expect to see an increase in business this weekend. Holley is the sponsor of the festivals lavish reworks display tonight over Lake Jackson. The show will be con tinuous reworks and they wont stop for over an hour, he promised. Local law enforcement ofcers said they are not aggressively going after residents noisily celebrat ing Americas indepen dence with products from Bettys or Buddys, unless they get a complaint or the violation is agrant. Basically if we receive a complaint or we see large explosions, we have to re spond to it, Schneider said. Usually well give a warning and say, Hey, put the reworks away or take em back up to Alabama. Its usually up to ofcer discretion. FIREWORKS from page A1 OFFICIAL from page A1 that might be needed four months out of the year, Gordon replied. Administrative Services Director Mike Wing, whose department includes building inspections, said Daigles workload varied. There are days during the reporting period when he was doing 30-plus inspec tions, and weeks when he was doing 20 or 25 hours a week, Wing said. The bottom line is, our recommendation is we needed a building ofcial and we still need him, Wing said. If the time comes when the numbers indicate we dont need a fulltime ofcial, we can evaluate that. I dont know how we would advertise for a part time ofcial. Council member Charles Baugh Jr. expressed his satisfaction that the coun cil has evaluated the need for an inspector, consider ing several proposals Wing had submitted, ranging from hiring a city employ ee to remaining on a con tract basis with Okaloosa County. Im happy this is taking some time, Baugh said. This is not being rubberstamped because a depart ment head requested it. We are doing this with due process, that is cor rect, Wing said. Im not upset that its taking a while. Like Mr. Baugh, Im happy its tak ing a while, Helt said. It shows that each council member is taking time to consider the issue. Baugh sought assur ance from Wing that there would be internal con trols to allay rumors of some builders getting free inspections, unpermitted construction occurring or unsafe construction being approved. The rumors are what make me say, maybe we should go to another way of doing this and that way the citizens know that any thing that is built in the city has an inspector to check it out, Baugh said. I need to know that our liability level is reduced by having a com petent individual doing it. Wing assured Baugh that a recent audit of the building inspection de partment found only one problem. If there are rumors we want to know about it so we can address it, Wing said. If you remember, we had a near-perfect audit of our in spections with one excep tion, a $17.65 door. We do follow up on these things.

Local Crestview News Bulletin | A5 Saturday, June 30, 2012 By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Mary Klassen left the Twin Hills Park gym feel ing elated knowing that her grandson Edward Ejay Gondzis new bike helmet was professionally tted to his head. Ejay had his hel met custom tted by Crest view Police Department Community Policing ofcer Sam Kimmons Tuesday morning. I thought I had probably done a pretty good job of t ting it, but I feel a lot more comfortable now, Klassen said. You gotta protect the old brain! Kimmons and his part ner, ofcer Wanda Hulion, spent the morning distribut ing free bike helmets, tting them to kids heads, and distributing bicycle safety information. As part of the helmet distribution pro gram, both ofcers had to attend a training program in Chipley to be certied to t bicycle helmets to each riders head. Hulion also prepared free child digital ID kits, so after Ejay got his helmet t ted, he went inside the gym and had his ngerprints and a photo taken, with a copy provided to his mom, Angela Gondzi. The ofcers stumbled on the University of Floridas free bike helmet program while doing an Internet search for school crossing guard training. The pro gram was funded through two Florida Department of Transportation grants, one of which purchased the helmets through the Buy American Act, and the other funded the accompanying bicycle safety literature. Kimmons said the pro gram has provided more than 50,000 bike helmets statewide. From the Crest view Police Departments initial shipment, 100 hel mets were distributed at a third grade program at Baker School in May when the ofcers were invited by Principal Tom Shipp to speak about bike safety be fore the students were re leased for the summer. They loved it, Hulion said. They were so ex cited. They wore their hel mets to the lunchroom and all around school. And we were originally worried the kids wouldnt want to wear them. A new shipment has come in with helmets avail able in many sizes and colors. We got in the rest of our shipment, right down to tod dler size, Kimmons said. Kimmons said he and Hulion are always glad to speak to community groups, especially kids, about safety and invites the public to contact them at either kim monss@crestviewpd.org or hulionw@crestviewpd.org to arrange for a presenta tion. Their next presenta tion will be July 19 at An tioch Elementary Schools daycare program. As for Ejay, he couldnt wait to try out a few laps around the Twin Hills Park gym parking lot now that his sharp-looking new hel met t just right. Youre gonna wear that thing for me all the time, arent you? Kimmons asked him. Yes sir! Ejay replied as he wheeled his bike away.

Each month North Okaloosa Medical Center recognizes one employee for their extraordinary contributions. Monitoring Requirements Not Met For City of Crestview Water Department We are required to monitor your drinking water for total coliform bacteria on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. On June 5, 2012 and June 18th 2012 a total of four (4) distribution compliance samples were collected which indicated the presence of total coliform bacteria. Since our system may have no more than two (2) samples collected during this compliance month test positive for coliform bacteria, our system exceeded the maximum contaminant level (MCL) for total coliform for June 2012. What Should I Do? There is nothing you need to do at this time. Total coliform bacteria are generally not harmful themselves. Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially harmful, bacteria may be present. What happened? What is being done? All required additional repeat samples taken at the sites on June 6th and June 19th, six (6) repeat samples in all, were all absent of total coliform bacteria. Additionally, 43 samples taken throughout the distribution system during the month of June were all absent of total coliform bacteria as well.

By MICHAEL STEWART 682-6524 | @cnbEditor michaels@crestviewbulletin.com A routine trafc stop Monday night in Crestview led to the arrest of a man who faces charges con nected with operating a meth lab out of his car. Kenneth B. Williams, 22, formerly of the 2000 block of Woodfern Drive in Fort Walton Beach, is charged with trafck ing in methamphetamine, manu facturing methamphetamine and possession of illegal drugs within 1,000 yards of a school. Williams is in custody at Okaloosa County Jail without bond. A second person detained during the trafc stop was later released. The incident occurred about 8 p.m. when a Crest view Police Department canine alerted ofcers to the presence of drugs during a trafc stop in the parking lot of the McDonalds adjacent to Crestview High School, according to a press release. During a search of the mans car, a lab used to manufacture chemicals used in the produc tion of methamphetamines was discovered, police spokesman Lt. Andrew Schneider said. It was a rolling meth lab or shake and bake lab, Schneider said. Police recovered 336 grams of methamphetamine liquid, along with other chemicals, according to the press release. Members of the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Ofce and Guard ian Environmental, a Tallahasseebased company that removes haz ardous chemicals, assisted police. Law enforcement crews were on scene until about 1 a.m. dis mantling the lab. You have to use special equip ment and respirators to remove and secure meth labs, Schneider said. They are very, very unsafe. Police cordoned off the McDon alds parking lot while the lab was dismantled. Due to the dangerous and extremely unstable nature of the manufacturing process, the scene was secured for several hours un til the mobile laboratory could be safely neutralized and disassem bled, the press release states.

Main Street, CRESTVIEW 2067557 This coming week we celebrate our nations birthday. Our founding forebears had a dream of a land free from tyranny and oppression. Such a dream it was. As a nation, we have a freedom in our lives that is the envy of the world. We have the freedom to make choices in our lives: what to wear, what to eat, what to drink, what to drive, what to hear, you name it. As long as it isnt illegal, it can be done. If it is immoral, well, people have the freedom to make that choice, too. Men and women gave their lives for the initial freedom that came to this nation. Throughout subsequent generations, men and women sacriced their lives to keep that freedom alive. Men and women today still sacrice their time and energy to maintain our freedom and present it as an option for other countries to follow. It seems to me that one thing some folks tend to sometimes forget, or dont stop to realize as often as they could, is the freedom they have received in this life has been purchased and paid for by other people, at great expense to them. That great expense was often their own life, or the life of someone they knew and loved. Do you stop to remember that? If not, I encourage you to do so. Stop to think where you would be right now if others had not stepped up to the plate and given their all for future generations. Humbling, isnt it? Then, there is the topic of our ultimate freedom. Where did our ultimate freedom come from? It came from our Lord, Jesus Christ. He made the ultimate sacrice for each one of us. And what a freedom we have received! We have been given freedom from our sins. Partly this means that when we give our sins over to him, the power they held over us disappears. We no longer have to fear death and eternal separation from God. He showed us what the ultimate sacrice, what the ultimate level of love, can bring forth. He paid it forward for each of us. I sometimes wonder how many dont remember, or dont stop to realize, that this ultimate freedom was purchased and paid for by our Lord, Jesus Christ at great expense to himself, and to God. I sometimes wonder if people realize how many men and women have given their lives to promote the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others may come to know his ultimate sacrice and depth of love. This July 4, when we pause as a nation to celebrate attaining independence from the oppression and tyranny of Great Britain, let us also stop to celebrate attaining independence from the oppression and tyranny of sin. One form of independence came at the cost of human life. The other, the more important of the two, came at the cost of the life of Gods Son. Sacrices made by those who knew a love greater than themselves. Rev.

Whichever is true, dont rely on advice someone else pays for. Sometimes a lawyer cant help. Theres enough at stake that I always advise hiring your own lawyer. But even if your lawyer cant help, he or she will act in your best interests. Too many times Ive seen a mortgage rescuer come forward suggesting the rescuer can take the owner out of his misery, at no cost to the owner. But usually the misery will be just beginning. No one proclaiming to have your best interests at heart at no cost to you is likely to be telling the truth. Theres something in it for them, or they wouldnt be doing it. There are two things I advise any short-seller or owner in foreclosure. The rst is not to try to live off the system for nothing. Instead, take the amount of the mortgage payment, or as much as you can possibly afford, and put the cash away each month. Put it in a lawyers escrow account if you must, but put it away. When the nal accounting comes, the owner will be innitely better off having put some cash aside to rely on. As important, the habit of not making a fair payment for the place you live is not realistic. Dont get out of the habit. Another reason is evident from the next piece of advice. Do not let your property be foreclosed without trying hard to short sell, do a deedin-lieu of foreclosure, or otherwise satisfy your mortgage without merely walking away as if it doesnt matter. Walking away hurts your neighbors and your credit rating. Walking away, unless there is absolutely no choice, is nancially irresponsible. Heres why: You have some hope of structuring an affordable loan repayment if you actively work to solve your debt. Ive seen very few short sales that cant be worked to result in either no residual balance (deciency) the owner must pay, or a minimal one, if the negotiator takes the time and trouble to insist on that result. Ive seen very large deciencies negotiated to nothing, or to amounts that the owner could pay in cash at the time of closing, or with an unsecured promissory note with very favorable terms. The alternative is to give up and walk away from a property with an undened future liability. That deciency hangs over the owner for as long as the statute of limitations, or longer. The owner doesnt know whether he can buy another house, a car, or any other asset, because the creditor may sue at any moment for the unpaid balance of a forgotten mortgage. That result doesnt contribute to the nancial recovery of anyone involved. In spite of this obvious advice, I see countless short sale negotiators accept a short sale approval letter that promises to cancel the mortgage, but omits mention of the promissory note. The note must be satised, not be allowed to hang out there unpaid until the mortgage company gets around to assigning it to a collection agency. That drags out the owners agony, sometimes invites bankruptcy, and keeps the owner from getting on with life. A short sale negotiator who works for the owner will return the approval letter, even though to do so may jeopardize the sale, and say to the mortgage company, This isnt enough. Lets talk about how this whole thing gets nished. I not only need this mortgage satised, but we must deal with the unpaid balance, now, not later. The mortgagee will be trying to maximize its return, and is likely to be motivated to settle the whole deal now, rather than later. Thats particularly true if there is even a little bit of cash available to fund a complete settlement. But this result takes someone who is looking long term, not just someone satisfying his or her own need for the closing commission. I have had this discussion with attorney Shannon Widman, in south Walton County. Shannon does lots of short sales, and I respect the fact that she would not leave the owner to take his chances with a deciency claim that may not show up until years later, at least not without a sincere effort to nish the matter successfully for the owner. There are other excellent real property lawyers who have that philosophy, and who do excellent work for their clients. Please make sure your negotiator understands that you cannot truly walk away, unless the entire debt, including the promissory note, is resolved. Next month in this space, Michael Hamby, tax lawyer and allaround good guy with our Shalimar ofce, will discuss the tax effects of debt relief realized by a short sale. Mike Chesser is a board certied Real Estate Attorney with Chesser & Barr, P.A. House Bill 5301, signed by the governor, concerns Medicaid payments made by Florida counties each year. In past years, you could dispute any of these bills if they lacked proper information or were deemed fraudulent. HB5301 changes this process, requiring counties to pay 85 percent of all unpaid invoices and future billings will be taken out of sales tax revenues prior to county disbursement. Invoices disputed by the county can only be submitted AFTER payments have already been made, and must be disputed through a timeconsuming, expensive administrative hearing process. We feel simply that this system was already awed and that the state is forcing us to fund a awed system; therefore, we have joined 52 other counties through the Florida Association of Counties in a lawsuit. The State Auditor General also pointed out many deciencies with erroneous billings and overpayments by the Agency for Health Care Administration in its Report No. 2012-021, dated Oct. 31, 2011 (www. myorida.com under Auditor General). Thus, we are challenging this UNFUNDED MANDATE from the state legislators to county taxpayers. The Florida Association of Counties states: This suit does not challenge whether counties should participate with the state in making its Medicaid payments. That policy decision was made long ago. Rather, counties want to pay their fair and accurate share of the Medicaid bills on behalf of their residents, which they have been prevented from doing because of a state billing system plagued with rampant errors. Counties do not want their tax revenue share automatically raided to pay bills under the new scheme enacted by Section 12. Forty counties representing 73 percent of the states population ask this court to enforce their state constitution and to require the Legislature to play by the rules before attempting to reduce the amount of tax revenues returned to the people. Now 53 of the 67 counties are participating in the lawsuit. What is the cost for Okaloosa taxpayers? In 2011, we paid $1.3 million, and historically excluded from payment any invoices not consistent with requirements outlined by law. Unpaid claims represent nearly $570,000 to be spread over yearly installments, with the rst installment almost $142,000. In 2013, the new budget requirement will be $2.2 million, almost double our current expenditures. On the recent FAC Medicaid Update call, the Agency for Health Care Administration announced that they will not certify any dollars to Department of Revenue on May 7, thus delaying the rst certication until June 7. The agency is reviewing billing issues at this time and the county will have a small window of time to evaluate, at least for the 85 percent payment of past invoices. For more information, visit facmedicaid.com, which also has a link to AHCA. One other issue foremost in everyones mind is the Okaloosa Tourist Development Council. In the wake of the council directors alleged misuse of bed tax dollars, Airports Director Greg Donovan has stepped in to assist in the interim director capacity. As the investigation provides us answers in the future as to WHAT happened, we will work diligently to nd out HOW this happened and make necessary corrections in policy and procedures. In the meantime, your support of Mr. Donovan is requested and appreciated, and I also request that everyone keep in mind that Okaloosa County has over 700 hardworking employees that are dedicated to serving taxpayers.

Learn community hurricane evacuation routes and how to nd higher ground. Determine where you would need to go and how you would get there if you needed to evacuate. Make plans to secure your property. Permanent storm shutters offer the best protection for windows. A second option is to board up windows with 5/8inch marine plywood, cut to t and ready to install. Tape does not prevent windows from breaking. Install straps or additional clips to securely fasten your roof to the homes frame structure. This will reduce roof damage. Be sure trees and shrubs around your home are well trimmed and to clear clogged rain gutters and downspouts. Check your insurance coverage. Flood damage is not usually covered by homeowners insurance. During the Storm Listen to the radio or TV for information. Secure your home, close storm shutters and secure outdoor objects or bring them indoors. Turn off utilities if instructed to do so. Otherwise, turn the refrigerator thermostat to its coldest setting and keep the doors closed. Turn off propane tanks. Ensure a supply of water for sanitary purpose is available. Fill the bathtub and other larger containers with water. Evacuate under the follow conditions: If you are directed by local authorities to do so. Be sure to follow their instructions. If you live in a mobile home or temporary structure or live in a high-rise building. If you live on the coast, near a river, or on an island waterway. After the Storm: Continue to listen to the NOAA Weather Radio or local news for information. If you evacuated, return home only when of cials say it is safe. Keep away from loose or dangling power lines and report them immediately. Inspect your home for damage. Take pictures of the damage. Avoid drinking or preparing food with tap water until you are sure its not contaminated. Check refrigerator for spoiled food. If in doubt, throw it out. Use telephone only for emergency calls.

From staff reports When a major storm is forecast, your electric appli ances most likely will wind up without power. Knowing how to handle electricity and the devices it powers before and after a storm can prevent injury to both you and your appliance. CHELCO offers the fol lowing tips for safely deal ing with electricity in storm situations. Make sure you have a landline plug-in phone be cause cordless units dont work when the power is out. Please make one call only to report a power out age. Extra calls jam the switchboards and slow down repairs. Your coop eration is critical to the success of the restoration process. Treat all downed lines as energized even though your power may be off. Remember, water con ducts electricity. Standing water can electrocute you just the same as a live wire. Stay away from all downed lines and water puddles near the lines. Keep your freezer door closed once the power goes off to maintain the cold. If the door is kept closed, a well-lled freezer can keep most foods frozen two to three days. A halffull freezer will only last about one day. If you must evacuate, turn off your power to pre vent shorts and possible res from voltage dips and surges while the system is being repaired. When using a genera tor, refer to the book that came with it and follow the manufacturers rec ommendations. Unless a home has been wired for a generator, use only those generators that appliances can be plugged into. Generators should never be plugged directly into a wall outlet. Use ex tension cords and plug appliances into the gen erator. If necessary rotate usage. For example, keep the refrigerator or freezer plugged in long enough to keep food cold, then switch the generator to another appliance. If generators are in stalled incorrectly, the re sult may be injury or even death for line crews who are trying to restore power. Current from a generator that is incorrectly hooked up can ow out of the home and into the transformer serving the home (or busi ness). The electricity then enters the local power dis tribution system. If your power goes out, turn off your major ap pliances, especially water heaters and heating/cool ing systems. After power has been restored, wait about 15 minutes, then turn appliances on one at a time. If you own a heat pump, check the manual before turning it back on. If you evacuate, you can keep up to date on pow er restoration progress by checking www.chelco.com. 6514466 Need a dumpster for construction, roofing, yard debris or general clean up?

Hurricane Preparedness A12 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, June 30, 2012 Recipes for disaster By BRIAN HUGHES From the News Bulletin archives After several days of no power, sweltering heat, being stinky and struggling to repair both home and lives, having to stomach one more can of cold Vienna sausages can push someone right over the edge. With just a little advance planning, post-storm menus can be tasty and creative. Prepare now. Dont wait for Jim Cantore to show up in Destin. Plan your post-storm menus as you would normal weekly meals. Dont just pitch random canned food into your shopping cart. Stock a real good variety of nonperishable foods. Save money on fancier canned goods by exploring the food aisles at Big Lots. Plant a small herb garden now to harvest from whether the lights are on or not. Basil and mint grow like the dickens in our summer climate. Even I cant kill em. Rotate a supply of longerlasting fruits and veggies that dont need to be refrigerated. Include onions, potatoes, garlic, cabbage, oranges, lemons and grapefruits. Promptly replace them as you use them so you wont be caught empty handed. Seasonings and spices give canned food a kick. At least keep a jar of seasoned salt on hand. Bread will go moldy fast. Stock up on cracker-like Wasa atbread. It lasts a long time and comes in tasty varieties. Remember rice and pasta can be cooked in a pot over your BBQ grill or a camp stove. Stock evaporated or non-fat dry milk in your storm pantry. Nutrition and nourishment are particularly important during stressful times, writes Sarasota author Daphne Nikolopoulos. And no one can argue that an enjoyable meal helps alleviate stress. Nikolopoulos The Storm Gourmet: A Guide to Creating Extraordinary Meals Without Electricity is both a useful cookbook and practical storm preparation guide. (Pineapple Press, 800-746-3275, pineapplepress.com.) Some of her recipes are admittedly a tad exotic for local palates. (Not many local cooks whip up tapenade for a church supper.) But even the fancy dishes provide inspiration for adaptation. Dont shun a recipe because it has a snazzy name. Salade Nioise is great stuff: just tell your family its Tators-n-Tuna Storm Salad. Adapt family recipes. Can Aunt Tooties famous chicken salad be prepared using canned chicken instead of fresh? With a little planning now before a storm is forecast, your poststorm cuisine can be much more palatable, and your meals can be opportunities to renew and refresh as you work toward recovery. BREAKFAST The Storm Gourmet suggests varying three basic breakfasts from day to day: Cereal with Milk: Use reconstituted evaporated or fat-free dry milk. Buy cereal in small individual serving packs. (Ah, for the day of the Kell-Bowl-Pak!) Peanut Butter Toasts: Regular peanut butter wont spoil without refrigeration. Spread it on Wasa atbread. Fruit Salad: Use canned fruit cocktail.

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 Internet-based 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 search-and-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. When the requests come in, they go to ESF5 planning which is the county Emergency Management department, Everage said. They screen them and task them wherever they need to go. I could task Crestview through the same system, 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 monitor 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. Twenty minutes later, the system was back up. Fortunately, failure of the main link between agencies was a contingency 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 collect the data. When the system came back up, we entered the data into WebEOC. We lost nothing. Later, McDaniel said, an investigation by county computer technicians found the cause of the crash. What we found is the vendor for our system sent us an update and the update had a bug in it, McDaniel 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 system, 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.

Saturday, June 30, 2012 SP O RTS www.crestviewbulletin.com Page 16 Johnson named Baker baseball coach By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER Its fair to say that Baker hit a home run in the hiring of Scott Johnson as the new Gator baseball coach to replace Gary Taylor, who stepped down at the end of the season. Johnson, who recently resigned as the head coach at Choctawhatchee, brings has 14 years of head coaching experience and was the 2012 Daily News Big School Coach of the Year. In his tenure as a head coach, 27 of his players have been drafted to play professional baseball and several others have signed college scholarships. Johnson didnt plan on getting back into coaching so quickly, but the possibility of teaching at the same school as his wife, Christine, where their children also will attend, was more than he could resist. My wife and I have a big family, he said. We have ve children and my wife is a teacher as well, and this job is always a job that we were very interested in. The ability to live out in the country and the ability to have all of our kids in one building I just always thought it would be a great place and we could have a lot of success up here. The draw here is just family and to come to a place where we could put family rst. If I make one of those long road trips that I make three times a week as a baseball coach and I dont get to see my kids until they are sleeping when I get home, I can see them in the halls here and I get to work on a faculty with my wife. Johnson complimented Taylor on the work he has done with the Gator program and, if possible, hopes to have the former coach involved with the team in some capacity. Johnson said hes thankful that Brunson and Baker principal Tom Shipp not only had a job for him, but for Christine too. Brunson said hiring Johnson was an easy decision. Coach Johnsons name rose to the top from the list of applicants we had with the success hes had as the Coach of the Year and the schools hes been in, Brunson said. Im kind of partial to coaches from Okaloosa County and we are honored to have him and his wife here as Baker Gators. Johnson is excited about being able to work closely with not only the high school players, but the middle school players as well. The new coach has met with many of the Baker players, and he said he is ready to get to work with his new team. We are going to try and hold some practices this summer so I can see what weve got, but its going to be a tough road, I know that, Johnson said. A lot of these small schools dont play during the summer and I know its dif cult to do, but what it will do is those 10 days of practices we have will kind of let me implement some of the system we run and, obviously, give me a chance to see the kids as well. I think there is an opportunity for immediate success here and getting to talk with coach Brunson, he just seems like a wonderful athletic director, and Mr. Shipp just seems like a wonderful administrator and I think it can be a really good place. SCOTT JOHNSON By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com Okaloosa County and Gulf Coast Community College basketball coaching icons Roonie Scovel and Grover Hicks were reunited Monday and Tuesday at the Crestview Basketball Camp hosted by the Crestview girls basketball team. Scovel and Hicks, who teamed up to lead the Laurel Hill girls to a state championship and the Gulf Coast women to three national titles, were happy to return to the county to help out Crestview girls coach Kathy Combest. Its about giving back, said Scovel, who retired following the 2011-12 season. I try to make it very, very important in my life not to forget where I started and Okaloosa County is big part of that and Walton I started at Paxton actually. Okaloosa was very good to me so this was a great opportunity to come back to Okaloosa County and give back for just a short period of time. Hicks, who retired in 2011, was glad to be back on a court, if only for two days. Ive been retired over a year now and it was an opportunity to get back into coaching and scratch the itch a little bit, he said. Its all the same if you coach on the high school level, the middle school level or the college level. It doesnt matter. They worked hard and tried and learned these skills, so its been a fun camp. Chelsea Combest, who played for her mother, Kathy, at Baker and for Scovel and Hicks at Gulf Coast, also was on hand to help out with the camp. The younger Combest said she felt every bit at home in the Crestview gym as she does at her old stomping ground at Baker. It doesnt matter to me (where a camp is held), a gyms a gym and a ball is a ball, she said. We just have to have somewhere that we can come in and help these kids get better. Seventeen players attended the camp 14 girls and three boys and they were given a crash course in the way Scovel and Hicks conducted a practice, right down to the pushups and suicide runs for not doing a drill or a play correctly. Scovel said a big focus was teaching the girls the proper way to shoot. Coach Hicks and I are sort of big on shooting so that is one thing we tried to emphasize was the introduction of the jump shot with young women, she said. Thats one of the things that is missing in girls basketball and in college, so if they want to move to the next level thats something they have to master. That was the kind of thing we tried to hit on in two days with a lot of upper body strength and the jump shot. Kathy Combest said the camp was just what she was looking for from a teaching and tempo standpoint. They (Scovel and Hicks) did everything I asked and everything I wanted the girls to see about how to run a practice and how a practice should be run, she said. Ive been working mainly fundamentals so we can start that practice and be able to do stuff in that camp. It is the start of what we are trying to make here. This is an opportunity for them to see what their potential is as athletes with their speed, their jumping and quickness. The Crestview coach admitted she was disappointed that no girls attended the camp from the local middle school programs. Here we are in your backyard with two of the best coaches in the country and Shoal River and Davidson didnt show up not one player not even one, Kathy Combest said. This was well publicized. I went to the schools and I even dropped by extra papers and it was a relatively cheap camp, and thats disappointing. Im trying and I need a little help from them now.

The council approved council member Robyn Helts motion for the city to advertise for a building inspector at a salary of $60,600 plus bene ts. The motion passed 3-2, with council member Thomas Gordon and Council President Ben Iannucci III voting nay. Since Daigles retirement, Crestview has been paying Okaloosa County $100 per hour for building inspections done by a county inspector. At its June 11 council meeting, the body approved a $1,125 county invoice for May inspections and reviews of submitted building plans. Helt has been emphatic at recent meetings that building inspections is a service the city needs to provide its residents. When the city requested the county lower its rate to $75 an hour, it should have been considered an interim, temporary action, she said. The action well take tonight is a Band-Aid x and I dont like a Band-Aid x, Helt said at a June 11 meeting. I want us to correct this issue and move on.I still feel this city needs a building of cial that this city has direct oversight over. My position will be the same in two weeks when we meet again, and if we dont resolve this, it will be my position two weeks after that. At Monday evenings council meeting, Gordon, citing occasions when not much building would be underway, suggested hiring a part-time building inspector, Helt immediately moved to make the position full time, because an inspector is needed 12 months of the year. Helt pointed out the service can also be a revenue stream for the city, if not at least a break-even service. I think this makes sense and it is the right thing to do, Helt said. The city is growing and it will continue to grow, and I think the city needs to be in charge. We lose control when we do that (hire a county inspector). We lose the ability to provide oversight and I am frankly not going to put the citizens of Crestview in that position. I have a problem hiring someone on a fulltime basis From staff reportsDAYTONA BEACH Halifax Media Group on Wednesday closed a deal with Freedom Communications to purchase eight daily and 11 weekly publications located in Florida and North Carolina, including the Crestview News Bulletin.

Its loyal customers like the Sullivan family that inspire Holley to pour some of his prots into supporting causes throughout the region, including reworks displays for Crestview church organizations, Florala High School athletics, and the local Masonic lodge. With Florala celebrating its annual June 24th Festival a week later than usual, the owners of both stores expect to see an increase in business this weekend. Holley is the sponsor of the festivals lavish reworks display tonight over Lake Jackson. The show will be continuous reworks and they wont stop for over an hour, he promised. Local law enforcement ofcers said they are not aggressively going after residents noisily celebrating Americas independence with products from Bettys or Buddys, unless they get a complaint or the violation is agrant. Basically if we receive a complaint or we see large explosions, we have to respond to it, Schneider said. Usually well give a warning and say, Hey, put the reworks away or take em back up to Alabama. Its usually up to ofcer discretion. FIREWORKS from page A1 OFFICIAL from page A1that might be needed four months out of the year, Gordon replied. Administrative Services Director Mike Wing, whose department includes building inspections, said Daigles workload varied. There are days during the reporting period when he was doing 30-plus inspections, and weeks when he was doing 20 or 25 hours a week, Wing said. The bottom line is, our recommendation is we needed a building ofcial and we still need him, Wing said. If the time comes when the numbers indicate we dont need a fulltime ofcial, we can evaluate that. I dont know how we would advertise for a part time ofcial. Council member Charles Baugh Jr. expressed his satisfaction that the council has evaluated the need for an inspector, considering several proposals Wing had submitted, ranging from hiring a city employee to remaining on a contract basis with Okaloosa County. Im happy this is taking some time, Baugh said. This is not being rubberstamped because a department head requested it. We are doing this with due process, that is correct, Wing said. Im not upset that its taking a while. Like Mr. Baugh, Im happy its taking a while, Helt said. It shows that each council member is taking time to consider the issue. Baugh sought assurance from Wing that there would be internal controls to allay rumors of some builders getting free inspections, unpermitted construction occurring or unsafe construction being approved. The rumors are what make me say, maybe we should go to another way of doing this and that way the citizens know that anything that is built in the city has an inspector to check it out, Baugh said. I need to know that our liability level is reduced by having a competent individual doing it. Wing assured Baugh that a recent audit of the building inspection department found only one problem. If there are rumors we want to know about it so we can address it, Wing said. If you remember, we had a near-perfect audit of our inspections with one exception, a $17.65 door. We do follow up on these things.

LocalCrestview News Bulletin | A5Saturday, June 30, 2012By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com Mary Klassen left the Twin Hills Park gym feeling elated knowing that her grandson Edward Ejay Gondzis new bike helmet was professionally tted to his head. Ejay had his helmet custom tted by Crestview Police Department Community Policing ofcer Sam Kimmons Tuesday morning. I thought I had probably done a pretty good job of tting it, but I feel a lot more comfortable now, Klassen said. You gotta protect the old brain! Kimmons and his partner, ofcer Wanda Hulion, spent the morning distributing free bike helmets, tting them to kids heads, and distributing bicycle safety information. As part of the helmet distribution program, both ofcers had to attend a training program in Chipley to be certied to t bicycle helmets to each riders head. Hulion also prepared free child digital ID kits, so after Ejay got his helmet tted, he went inside the gym and had his ngerprints and a photo taken, with a copy provided to his mom, Angela Gondzi. The ofcers stumbled on the University of Floridas free bike helmet program while doing an Internet search for school crossing guard training. The program was funded through two Florida Department of Transportation grants, one of which purchased the helmets through the Buy American Act, and the other funded the accompanying bicycle safety literature. Kimmons said the program has provided more than 50,000 bike helmets statewide. From the Crestview Police Departments initial shipment, 100 helmets were distributed at a third grade program at Baker School in May when the ofcers were invited by Principal Tom Shipp to speak about bike safety before the students were released for the summer. They loved it, Hulion said. They were so excited. They wore their helmets to the lunchroom and all around school. And we were originally worried the kids wouldnt want to wear them. A new shipment has come in with helmets available in many sizes and colors. We got in the rest of our shipment, right down to toddler size, Kimmons said. Kimmons said he and Hulion are always glad to speak to community groups, especially kids, about safety and invites the public to contact them at either kimmonss@crestviewpd.org or hulionw@crestviewpd.org to arrange for a presentation. Their next presentation will be July 19 at Antioch Elementary Schools daycare program. As for Ejay, he couldnt wait to try out a few laps around the Twin Hills Park gym parking lot now that his sharp-looking new helmet t just right. Youre gonna wear that thing for me all the time, arent you? Kimmons asked him. Yes sir! Ejay replied as he wheeled his bike away.

Since our system may have no more than two (2) samples collected during this compliance month test positive for coliform bacteria, our system exceeded the maximum contaminant level (MCL) for total coliform for June 2012.What Should I Do?There is nothing you need to do at this time. Total coliform bacteria are generally not harmful themselves. Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially harmful, bacteria may be present.What happened?

Kenneth B. Williams, 22, formerly of the 2000 block of Woodfern Drive in Fort Walton Beach, is charged with trafcking in methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of illegal drugs within 1,000 yards of a school. Williams is in custody at Okaloosa County Jail without bond. A second person detained during the trafc stop was later released. The incident occurred about 8 p.m. when a Crestview Police Department canine alerted ofcers to the presence of drugs during a trafc stop in the parking lot of the McDonalds adjacent to Crestview High School, according to a press release. During a search of the mans car, a lab used to manufacture chemicals used in the production of methamphetamines was discovered, police spokesman Lt. Andrew Schneider said. It was a rolling meth lab or shake and bake lab, Schneider said. Police recovered 336 grams of methamphetamine liquid, along with other chemicals, according to the press release. Members of the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Ofce and Guardian Environmental, a Tallahasseebased company that removes hazardous chemicals, assisted police. Law enforcement crews were on scene until about 1 a.m. dismantling the lab. You have to use special equipment and respirators to remove and secure meth labs, Schneider said. They are very, very unsafe. Police cordoned off the McDonalds parking lot while the lab was dismantled. Due to the dangerous and extremely unstable nature of the manufacturing process, the scene was secured for several hours until the mobile laboratory could be safely neutralized and disassembled, the press release states.

Main Street, CRESTVIEW 2067557 This coming week we celebrate our nations birthday. Our founding forebears had a dream of a land free from tyranny and oppression. Such a dream it was. As a nation, we have a freedom in our lives that is the envy of the world. We have the freedom to make choices in our lives: what to wear, what to eat, what to drink, what to drive, what to hear, you name it. As long as it isnt illegal, it can be done. If it is immoral, well, people have the freedom to make that choice, too. Men and women gave their lives for the initial freedom that came to this nation. Throughout subsequent generations, men and women sacriced their lives to keep that freedom alive. Men and women today still sacrice their time and energy to maintain our freedom and present it as an option for other countries to follow. It seems to me that one thing some folks tend to sometimes forget, or dont stop to realize as often as they could, is the freedom they have received in this life has been purchased and paid for by other people, at great expense to them. That great expense was often their own life, or the life of someone they knew and loved. Do you stop to remember that? If not, I encourage you to do so. Stop to think where you would be right now if others had not stepped up to the plate and given their all for future generations. Humbling, isnt it? Then, there is the topic of our ultimate freedom. Where did our ultimate freedom come from? It came from our Lord, Jesus Christ. He made the ultimate sacrice for each one of us. And what a freedom we have received! We have been given freedom from our sins. Partly this means that when we give our sins over to him, the power they held over us disappears. We no longer have to fear death and eternal separation from God. He showed us what the ultimate sacrice, what the ultimate level of love, can bring forth. He paid it forward for each of us. I sometimes wonder how many dont remember, or dont stop to realize, that this ultimate freedom was purchased and paid for by our Lord, Jesus Christ at great expense to himself, and to God. I sometimes wonder if people realize how many men and women have given their lives to promote the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others may come to know his ultimate sacrice and depth of love. This July 4, when we pause as a nation to celebrate attaining independence from the oppression and tyranny of Great Britain, let us also stop to celebrate attaining independence from the oppression and tyranny of sin. One form of independence came at the cost of human life. The other, the more important of the two, came at the cost of the life of Gods Son. Sacrices made by those who knew a love greater than themselves. Rev.

Whichever is true, dont rely on advice someone else pays for. Sometimes a lawyer cant help. Theres enough at stake that I always advise hiring your own lawyer. But even if your lawyer cant help, he or she will act in your best interests. Too many times Ive seen a mortgage rescuer come forward suggesting the rescuer can take the owner out of his misery, at no cost to the owner. But usually the misery will be just beginning. No one proclaiming to have your best interests at heart at no cost to you is likely to be telling the truth. Theres something in it for them, or they wouldnt be doing it. There are two things I advise any short-seller or owner in foreclosure. The rst is not to try to live off the system for nothing. Instead, take the amount of the mortgage payment, or as much as you can possibly afford, and put the cash away each month. Put it in a lawyers escrow account if you must, but put it away. When the nal accounting comes, the owner will be innitely better off having put some cash aside to rely on. As important, the habit of not making a fair payment for the place you live is not realistic. Dont get out of the habit. Another reason is evident from the next piece of advice. Do not let your property be foreclosed without trying hard to short sell, do a deedin-lieu of foreclosure, or otherwise satisfy your mortgage without merely walking away as if it doesnt matter. Walking away hurts your neighbors and your credit rating. Walking away, unless there is absolutely no choice, is nancially irresponsible. Heres why: You have some hope of structuring an affordable loan repayment if you actively work to solve your debt. Ive seen very few short sales that cant be worked to result in either no residual balance (deciency) the owner must pay, or a minimal one, if the negotiator takes the time and trouble to insist on that result. Ive seen very large deciencies negotiated to nothing, or to amounts that the owner could pay in cash at the time of closing, or with an unsecured promissory note with very favorable terms. The alternative is to give up and walk away from a property with an undened future liability. That deciency hangs over the owner for as long as the statute of limitations, or longer. The owner doesnt know whether he can buy another house, a car, or any other asset, because the creditor may sue at any moment for the unpaid balance of a forgotten mortgage. That result doesnt contribute to the nancial recovery of anyone involved. In spite of this obvious advice, I see countless short sale negotiators accept a short sale approval letter that promises to cancel the mortgage, but omits mention of the promissory note. The note must be satised, not be allowed to hang out there unpaid until the mortgage company gets around to assigning it to a collection agency. That drags out the owners agony, sometimes invites bankruptcy, and keeps the owner from getting on with life. A short sale negotiator who works for the owner will return the approval letter, even though to do so may jeopardize the sale, and say to the mortgage company, This isnt enough. Lets talk about how this whole thing gets nished. I not only need this mortgage satised, but we must deal with the unpaid balance, now, not later. The mortgagee will be trying to maximize its return, and is likely to be motivated to settle the whole deal now, rather than later. Thats particularly true if there is even a little bit of cash available to fund a complete settlement. But this result takes someone who is looking long term, not just someone satisfying his or her own need for the closing commission. I have had this discussion with attorney Shannon Widman, in south Walton County. Shannon does lots of short sales, and I respect the fact that she would not leave the owner to take his chances with a deciency claim that may not show up until years later, at least not without a sincere effort to nish the matter successfully for the owner. There are other excellent real property lawyers who have that philosophy, and who do excellent work for their clients. Please make sure your negotiator understands that you cannot truly walk away, unless the entire debt, including the promissory note, is resolved. Next month in this space, Michael Hamby, tax lawyer and allaround good guy with our Shalimar ofce, will discuss the tax effects of debt relief realized by a short sale. Mike Chesser is a board certied Real Estate Attorney with Chesser & Barr, P.A. House Bill 5301, signed by the governor, concerns Medicaid payments made by Florida counties each year. In past years, you could dispute any of these bills if they lacked proper information or were deemed fraudulent. HB5301 changes this process, requiring counties to pay 85 percent of all unpaid invoices and future billings will be taken out of sales tax revenues prior to county disbursement. Invoices disputed by the county can only be submitted AFTER payments have already been made, and must be disputed through a timeconsuming, expensive administrative hearing process. We feel simply that this system was already awed and that the state is forcing us to fund a awed system; therefore, we have joined 52 other counties through the Florida Association of Counties in a lawsuit. The State Auditor General also pointed out many deciencies with erroneous billings and overpayments by the Agency for Health Care Administration in its Report No. 2012-021, dated Oct. 31, 2011 (www. myorida.com under Auditor General). Thus, we are challenging this UNFUNDED MANDATE from the state legislators to county taxpayers. The Florida Association of Counties states: This suit does not challenge whether counties should participate with the state in making its Medicaid payments. That policy decision was made long ago. Rather, counties want to pay their fair and accurate share of the Medicaid bills on behalf of their residents, which they have been prevented from doing because of a state billing system plagued with rampant errors. Counties do not want their tax revenue share automatically raided to pay bills under the new scheme enacted by Section 12. Forty counties representing 73 percent of the states population ask this court to enforce their state constitution and to require the Legislature to play by the rules before attempting to reduce the amount of tax revenues returned to the people. Now 53 of the 67 counties are participating in the lawsuit. What is the cost for Okaloosa taxpayers? In 2011, we paid $1.3 million, and historically excluded from payment any invoices not consistent with requirements outlined by law. Unpaid claims represent nearly $570,000 to be spread over yearly installments, with the rst installment almost $142,000. In 2013, the new budget requirement will be $2.2 million, almost double our current expenditures. On the recent FAC Medicaid Update call, the Agency for Health Care Administration announced that they will not certify any dollars to Department of Revenue on May 7, thus delaying the rst certication until June 7. The agency is reviewing billing issues at this time and the county will have a small window of time to evaluate, at least for the 85 percent payment of past invoices. For more information, visit facmedicaid.com, which also has a link to AHCA. One other issue foremost in everyones mind is the Okaloosa Tourist Development Council. In the wake of the council directors alleged misuse of bed tax dollars, Airports Director Greg Donovan has stepped in to assist in the interim director capacity. As the investigation provides us answers in the future as to WHAT happened, we will work diligently to nd out HOW this happened and make necessary corrections in policy and procedures. In the meantime, your support of Mr. Donovan is requested and appreciated, and I also request that everyone keep in mind that Okaloosa County has over 700 hardworking employees that are dedicated to serving taxpayers.

Learn community hurricane evacuation routes and how to nd higher ground. Determine where you would need to go and how you would get there if you needed to evacuate. Make plans to secure your property. Permanent storm shutters offer the best protection for windows. A second option is to board up windows with 5/8inch marine plywood, cut to t and ready to install. Tape does not prevent windows from breaking. Install straps or additional clips to securely fasten your roof to the homes frame structure. This will reduce roof damage. Be sure trees and shrubs around your home are well trimmed and to clear clogged rain gutters and downspouts. Check your insurance coverage. Flood damage is not usually covered by homeowners insurance.During the Storm Listen to the radio or TV for information. Secure your home, close storm shutters and secure outdoor objects or bring them indoors. Turn off utilities if instructed to do so. Otherwise, turn the refrigerator thermostat to its coldest setting and keep the doors closed. Turn off propane tanks. Ensure a supply of water for sanitary purpose is available. Fill the bathtub and other larger containers with water.Evacuate under the follow conditions: If you are directed by local authorities to do so. Be sure to follow their instructions. If you live in a mobile home or temporary structure or live in a high-rise building. If you live on the coast, near a river, or on an island waterway.After the Storm: Continue to listen to the NOAA Weather Radio or local news for information. If you evacuated, return home only when of cials say it is safe. Keep away from loose or dangling power lines and report them immediately. Inspect your home for damage. Take pictures of the damage. Avoid drinking or preparing food with tap water until you are sure its not contaminated. Check refrigerator for spoiled food. If in doubt, throw it out. Use telephone only for emergency calls.

From staff reportsWhen a major storm is forecast, your electric appliances most likely will wind up without power. Knowing how to handle electricity and the devices it powers before and after a storm can prevent injury to both you and your appliance. CHELCO offers the following tips for safely dealing with electricity in storm situations. Make sure you have a landline plug-in phone because cordless units dont work when the power is out. Please make one call only to report a power outage. Extra calls jam the switchboards and slow down repairs. Your cooperation is critical to the success of the restoration process. Treat all downed lines as energized even though your power may be off. Remember, water conducts electricity. Standing water can electrocute you just the same as a live wire. Stay away from all downed lines and water puddles near the lines. Keep your freezer door closed once the power goes off to maintain the cold. If the door is kept closed, a well-lled freezer can keep most foods frozen two to three days. A halffull freezer will only last about one day. If you must evacuate, turn off your power to prevent shorts and possible res from voltage dips and surges while the system is being repaired. When using a generator, refer to the book that came with it and follow the manufacturers recommendations. Unless a home has been wired for a generator, use only those generators that appliances can be plugged into. Generators should never be plugged directly into a wall outlet. Use extension cords and plug appliances into the generator. If necessary rotate usage. For example, keep the refrigerator or freezer plugged in long enough to keep food cold, then switch the generator to another appliance. If generators are installed incorrectly, the result may be injury or even death for line crews who are trying to restore power. Current from a generator that is incorrectly hooked up can ow out of the home and into the transformer serving the home (or business). The electricity then enters the local power distribution system. If your power goes out, turn off your major appliances, especially water heaters and heating/cooling systems. After power has been restored, wait about 15 minutes, then turn appliances on one at a time. If you own a heat pump, check the manual before turning it back on. If you evacuate, you can keep up to date on power restoration progress by checking www.chelco.com. 6514466 Need a dumpster for construction, roofing, yard debris or general clean up?

Hurricane PreparednessA12 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, June 30, 2012Recipes for disasterBy BRIAN HUGHESFrom the News Bulletin archives After several days of no power, sweltering heat, being stinky and struggling to repair both home and lives, having to stomach one more can of cold Vienna sausages can push someone right over the edge. With just a little advance planning, post-storm menus can be tasty and creative. Prepare now. Dont wait for Jim Cantore to show up in Destin. Plan your post-storm menus as you would normal weekly meals. Dont just pitch random canned food into your shopping cart. Stock a real good variety of nonperishable foods. Save money on fancier canned goods by exploring the food aisles at Big Lots. Plant a small herb garden now to harvest from whether the lights are on or not. Basil and mint grow like the dickens in our summer climate. Even I cant kill em. Rotate a supply of longerlasting fruits and veggies that dont need to be refrigerated. Include onions, potatoes, garlic, cabbage, oranges, lemons and grapefruits. Promptly replace them as you use them so you wont be caught empty handed. Seasonings and spices give canned food a kick. At least keep a jar of seasoned salt on hand. Bread will go moldy fast. Stock up on cracker-like Wasa atbread. It lasts a long time and comes in tasty varieties. Remember rice and pasta can be cooked in a pot over your BBQ grill or a camp stove. Stock evaporated or non-fat dry milk in your storm pantry. Nutrition and nourishment are particularly important during stressful times, writes Sarasota author Daphne Nikolopoulos. And no one can argue that an enjoyable meal helps alleviate stress. Nikolopoulos The Storm Gourmet: A Guide to Creating Extraordinary Meals Without Electricity is both a useful cookbook and practical storm preparation guide. (Pineapple Press, 800-746-3275, pineapplepress.com.) Some of her recipes are admittedly a tad exotic for local palates. (Not many local cooks whip up tapenade for a church supper.) But even the fancy dishes provide inspiration for adaptation. Dont shun a recipe because it has a snazzy name. Salade Nioise is great stuff: just tell your family its Tators-n-Tuna Storm Salad. Adapt family recipes. Can Aunt Tooties famous chicken salad be prepared using canned chicken instead of fresh? With a little planning now before a storm is forecast, your poststorm cuisine can be much more palatable, and your meals can be opportunities to renew and refresh as you work toward recovery.BREAKFASTThe Storm Gourmet suggests varying three basic breakfasts from day to day: Cereal with Milk: Use reconstituted evaporated or fat-free dry milk.

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 Internet-based 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 search-and-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. When the requests come in, they go to ESF5 planning which is the county Emergency Management department, Everage said. They screen them and task them wherever they need to go. I could task Crestview through the same system, 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 monitor 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. Twenty minutes later, the system was back up. Fortunately, failure of the main link between agencies was a contingency 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 collect the data. When the system came back up, we entered the data into WebEOC. We lost nothing. Later, McDaniel said, an investigation by county computer technicians found the cause of the crash. What we found is the vendor for our system sent us an update and the update had a bug in it, McDaniel 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 system, 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.

Saturday, June 30, 2012 SP O RTS www.crestviewbulletin.comPage 16 Johnson named Baker baseball coachBy RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com BAKER Its fair to say that Baker hit a home run in the hiring of Scott Johnson as the new Gator baseball coach to replace Gary Taylor, who stepped down at the end of the season. Johnson, who recently resigned as the head coach at Choctawhatchee, brings has 14 years of head coaching experience and was the 2012 Daily News Big School Coach of the Year. In his tenure as a head coach, 27 of his players have been drafted to play professional baseball and several others have signed college scholarships. Johnson didnt plan on getting back into coaching so quickly, but the possibility of teaching at the same school as his wife, Christine, where their children also will attend, was more than he could resist. My wife and I have a big family, he said. We have ve children and my wife is a teacher as well, and this job is always a job that we were very interested in. The ability to live out in the country and the ability to have all of our kids in one building I just always thought it would be a great place and we could have a lot of success up here. The draw here is just family and to come to a place where we could put family rst. If I make one of those long road trips that I make three times a week as a baseball coach and I dont get to see my kids until they are sleeping when I get home, I can see them in the halls here and I get to work on a faculty with my wife. Johnson complimented Taylor on the work he has done with the Gator program and, if possible, hopes to have the former coach involved with the team in some capacity. Johnson said hes thankful that Brunson and Baker principal Tom Shipp not only had a job for him, but for Christine too. Brunson said hiring Johnson was an easy decision. Coach Johnsons name rose to the top from the list of applicants we had with the success hes had as the Coach of the Year and the schools hes been in, Brunson said. Im kind of partial to coaches from Okaloosa County and we are honored to have him and his wife here as Baker Gators. Johnson is excited about being able to work closely with not only the high school players, but the middle school players as well. The new coach has met with many of the Baker players, and he said he is ready to get to work with his new team. We are going to try and hold some practices this summer so I can see what weve got, but its going to be a tough road, I know that, Johnson said. A lot of these small schools dont play during the summer and I know its dif cult to do, but what it will do is those 10 days of practices we have will kind of let me implement some of the system we run and, obviously, give me a chance to see the kids as well. I think there is an opportunity for immediate success here and getting to talk with coach Brunson, he just seems like a wonderful athletic director, and Mr. Shipp just seems like a wonderful administrator and I think it can be a really good place. SCOTT JOHNSON By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com Okaloosa County and Gulf Coast Community College basketball coaching icons Roonie Scovel and Grover Hicks were reunited Monday and Tuesday at the Crestview Basketball Camp hosted by the Crestview girls basketball team. Scovel and Hicks, who teamed up to lead the Laurel Hill girls to a state championship and the Gulf Coast women to three national titles, were happy to return to the county to help out Crestview girls coach Kathy Combest. Its about giving back, said Scovel, who retired following the 2011-12 season. I try to make it very, very important in my life not to forget where I started and Okaloosa County is big part of that and Walton I started at Paxton actually. Okaloosa was very good to me so this was a great opportunity to come back to Okaloosa County and give back for just a short period of time. Hicks, who retired in 2011, was glad to be back on a court, if only for two days. Ive been retired over a year now and it was an opportunity to get back into coaching and scratch the itch a little bit, he said. Its all the same if you coach on the high school level, the middle school level or the college level. It doesnt matter. They worked hard and tried and learned these skills, so its been a fun camp. Chelsea Combest, who played for her mother, Kathy, at Baker and for Scovel and Hicks at Gulf Coast, also was on hand to help out with the camp. The younger Combest said she felt every bit at home in the Crestview gym as she does at her old stomping ground at Baker. It doesnt matter to me (where a camp is held), a gyms a gym and a ball is a ball, she said. We just have to have somewhere that we can come in and help these kids get better. Seventeen players attended the camp 14 girls and three boys and they were given a crash course in the way Scovel and Hicks conducted a practice, right down to the pushups and suicide runs for not doing a drill or a play correctly. Scovel said a big focus was teaching the girls the proper way to shoot. Coach Hicks and I are sort of big on shooting so that is one thing we tried to emphasize was the introduction of the jump shot with young women, she said. Thats one of the things that is missing in girls basketball and in college, so if they want to move to the next level thats something they have to master. That was the kind of thing we tried to hit on in two days with a lot of upper body strength and the jump shot. Kathy Combest said the camp was just what she was looking for from a teaching and tempo standpoint. They (Scovel and Hicks) did everything I asked and everything I wanted the girls to see about how to run a practice and how a practice should be run, she said. Ive been working mainly fundamentals so we can start that practice and be able to do stuff in that camp. It is the start of what we are trying to make here. This is an opportunity for them to see what their potential is as athletes with their speed, their jumping and quickness. The Crestview coach admitted she was disappointed that no girls attended the camp from the local middle school programs. Here we are in your backyard with two of the best coaches in the country and Shoal River and Davidson didnt show up not one player not even one, Kathy Combest said. This was well publicized. I went to the schools and I even dropped by extra papers and it was a relatively cheap camp, and thats disappointing. Im trying and I need a little help from them now.
