Though the Emerald Coast dodged a direct strike from the storm as it head ed into Louisiana, the area experienced several inches of rain in some parts of the north county. As the sun peeped out earlier this week, however, Isaac made himself felt again when heavy rains dumped water in the central part of the United States that sent crests down lo cal estuaries. Randy McDaniel, chief of emergen cy management for Okaloosa County, said though the Crestview area was not affected, communities north of Baker along the Blackwater River suffered some ooding and road closures. Council seat still vacant after 18 months By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com LAUREL HILL Like most city council meetings, a copy of the nights agenda is available upon request to anyone attending. Each agenda lists what will be discussed or voted on during the meeting. These items typically change or, at least, dont show up repeat edly on agendas, for months. However, one item has re mained on the Laurel Hill city council agenda for more than a year: it concerns a vacant coun cil seat. Its just going to continue, unless one of the council mem bers is unable to make it to a meeting, Councilman Larry Hendren said of the councils deadlock on the issue. Ei ther that, or someone will take the seat in the next council election. During each meeting, the same names have been men tioned for lling the position. These include Mike Blizzard, Charles Lennard, Clifton Hall and former council member Johnny James. In March 2011, James missed the election submission deadline because of a death in his family. Since then, none of the candidates has been nomi nated because of a lack of a ma jority vote. The most recent example happened Tuesday, when the council received a motion to nominate a new member. The rst name mentioned was James. Both council mem bers Robby Adams and Willie Mae Toles voted in favor of the nomination, but Councilwoman Betty Williamson and Hendren opposed his nomination, split ting the vote 2-2. Celebrity chef prepares lunch for Fisher House guests By ANGEL McCURDY 315-4432 | @AngelMnwfdn amccurdy@nwfdailynews.com EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE Guests at Fisher House Emerald Coast received a special treat Wednesday afternoon when celebrity chef Jon Ashton took over the kitchen. Ashton stood back and smiled as he watched families staying at the temporary housing facility take in each course of his meal: butternut squash soup, Sicilian steak salad and bananas foster. Its an honor for me to be here, the executive chef for Dash magazine said as he prepared an oil, lemon and rosemary dressing for the salad. To see people who go across other countries and have been through so much, its an honor. This is something Ill remember for the rest of my life. Ashton served the 12 recipients in Fisher Houses dining room with one dish at BETTY WILLIAMSON HOW DEEP IS THE WA TER?

Downtown parking lot becoming a reality By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewB@crestviewbulletin.com CRES TV IEW Motorists soon might have more room for parking. A new parking lot will be situat ed near the corner of Railroad Av enue and Wilson Street, across the railroad tracks from Crestview City Hall. The lot also will provide park ing for the new Florida A&M Rural Diversity Healthcare Center. We are getting the contracts nalized, city engineer Fred Cook said. Utility Solutions Group of De funiak Springs will be responsible for the project, Cook said, adding, The contract limits the contrac tor to 90 days to have the project completed. The plans call for 79 parking spaces spanning 1.10 acres, Cook said. The city purchased the lot last year from Crestview Property Services LLC, which attorney and county commissioner-elect Nathan Boyles and his family members co-own. The city council voted to pay the company $102,500 for the property. The development comes after four years of unsuccessful attempts to secure land for the project. In December 2010, the city interested in purchasing property on East Woodruff Avenue made a $1 million offer to a local banker who owned a .76-acre lot. Accord ing to a newspaper article, the lot would have provided 82 parking spaces. The city was going to use $750,000 from a Community Devel opment Block Grant, plus $250,000 in matching funds from the Com munity Redevelopment Agency. That plan fell through when the property owner raised the price and eventually removed the offer to sell the property. In April 2011, the council con sidered buying a quarter-acre at 378 Woodruff Ave. However, after numerous discussions with the owner, the council decided not to pursue the property further.

As autumns cooler weather settles into Northwest Flor ida, its the best time to be planting, he said. Speaking at the Crest view Public Librarys monthly First Tuesday lec ture, Williams stressed that despite springs reputation throughout the rest of the country as planting season, its the autumnal equinox six months later that actu ally heralds the best local time to plant. Ive been trying to con vince people that fall is the best time to plant since Ive been an extension agent, but you cant beat the spring fever factor, Williams told the library meeting rooms overow audience. Spring fever just hits. Youre driven to go outside and plant something. Williams stated the rea sons for planting in the fall. When we move into Oc tober and November, it is more comfortable to be out doors, he said. The survival rate goes up for those trees and shrubs planted in the fall of the year. Some of your lo cally owned nurseries will typically get your best se lection of trees and shrubs in the fall, and those garden centers need our business this time of year.

Though she has been in volved with Toastmasters International for 10 years, attending this years inter national convention was a rst for her, she said. This was my rst TI annual conference that I attended, she said. I was happy that it was close to home this time. The next one will be in Cincinnati, and the next one after that will be in the Orient. At the Orlando conven tion, Gershaws fellow club member, Manuel Manny Martinez, placed third in one of nine seminal con tests in the Toastmasters International Speech Con test. Gershaw also had the opportunity to meet Ryan Avery, the organizations 2012 World Champion Pub lic Speaker. Gershaw holds the rank of Distinguished Toastmas ter, the organizations high est accolade.

FALL PLANTING TIME TIPS University of Florida/IFAS Okaloosa County Extension director Larry Williams offered useful tips for planting during autumn, the best planting season for Northwest Florida. Local nurseries carry plants best suited for local planting, as opposed to box stores whose out-of-state buyers arent familiar with local conditions, he advised. Annuals: sow seeds in late October for bachelor buttons, calendula, candytuft, larkspur, nasturtium, poppies, sweet alyssum and sweet pea. Shrubs, Perennials: Plant hollies, azaleas, dogwoods, crepe myrtles, oaks and most perennials in fall to early winter. Vegetables: Plant from fall to early spring: beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts (best planted as fall crop), cabbage, carrots, cauliower, collards, garlic, kohlrabi, green onions, radishes, shallots, Swiss card and turnips. Bulbing onions: Plant Excel, Texas Grano, Granex, White Granex and Tropicana Red from October to early December. Strawberries: Plant in October and November. Do not wait until the big box stores put out strawberry plants in the spring, Williams said. Plant Florida 90, Tioga, Sequoia, Florida Belle, Sweet Charlie, Chandler, Camarosa and Strawberry Festival. Herbs: Plant when it turns cool. Among herbs that dwell locally are parsley, oregano, sage, thyme, rosemary and sweet marjoram; sow seeds like dill, fennel, chervil, arugula and cilantro.

Crestview News Bulletin | A3 Saturday, September 8, 2012 Lori Jansen was a step ahead of Williams. Three days before his lecture, the Crestview resident was towing a wagon laden with golden streak dianellas around Crestview Nurseries, more familiarly known to many locals as Tommy Horns. Im trying to nd plants for a perennial garden, one I dont have to keep redoing, Jansen said. Were redoing some gardens, kind of an erosion control thing. Crestview resident Dot Moxey said she was looking forward to planting her fall garden and took copious notes as Williams listed some of the numerous plants that fare best when planted in the fall. Oh yes, Im getting ready to do my garden, Moxey said. I transplanted a couple bulbs yesterday. They might be owers or they might be really good grass. Well nd out soon as they come up. New Jersey native Phyllis Alles has lived locally more than 16 years, and has nally come to grips with the areas sandy soil. She hung around after Williams presentation to pick his brain some more. I realized theres no way Ill ever be able to have a decent lawn, Alles said. Ive learned to go with native plants. The rst year I planted here, everything dried up and wilted. Williams advised planting monkey grass also called border grass if Alles lawn is shady. She especially liked his recommendation to go with native plants such as Asiatic jasmine, which provides a useful groundcover. It costs a lot of have a lawn, and peoples expectations and what it takes to get there dont match, Williams said. Most people do not have the time to achieve a good lawn. Its a want they cant achieve. Williams also cautioned against winterizing a local lawn by spreading winter fertilizer mixes, a practice often seen farther north. The practice encourages young grass shoots to grow that are then killed off by frost. Do not buy into the idea of winterizing. Winterizing does not work this far south, Williams said. If you throw that (fertilizer) out there, youre not doing your pocketbook a favor; youre not doing your lawn a favor. Youre doing the brown patch (a grass-killing fungus) a favor and the guy who re-sods your lawn a favor. Okaloosa Master Gardeners, including past president Marg Stewart, were on hand with Williams to answer audience members questions. The trained gardening experts volunteer countless annual hours to help local amateur gardeners. The Master Gardeners helped me design my yard. They are great people, Jansen said. They came over to advise me on our erosion problem, and Ive been calling on them ever since. Above all, just have fun with the fall growing season and reap the bene ts come spring, Williams advised. We worry ourselves silly about things we shouldnt be worrying about. Fall is for fun, he said. Its the best time of year. Theres so many things to enjoy in the fall than worrying about an imperfect lawn or azaleas dying. 8587349 Check out our NEW Daily Specials 8587349 2493 S.

Local Staff Report 682-6524 news@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW As the worlds most successful continuing lm series celebrates a half-century of entertaining audiences around the globe, the Crestview Public Library leaps on the Bond wagon with a two-month exhibition of memorabilia from a local collectors archives. Included are some of the books that launched the whole Bond craze 60 years ago. Bonded! 60 years of James Bond Books. 50 Years of James Bond Films features materials from the collection of Crestview News Bulletin Arts and Entertainment Editor Brian Hughes, who has been collecting James Bond memorabilia since high school. He bought his rst Ian Fleming Bond novel with money earmarked for a class book. Mom gave me a couple bucks to buy a German/ English dictionary for my high school German class, Hughes recalled. There was a display of the movie edition of Diamonds Are Forever by the front door of the bookshop. I bought it instead. The exhibit at the library includes reprints made from original plates of Flemings earliest Bond novels, including his rst 007 adventure, Casino Royale, written early in 1952. Also included are several examples of cover art by English artist Richard Chopping. His painting for From Russia With Love got mixed up in a murder, Hughes said. Fleming borrowed the gun featured in the painting from Major Boothroyd, who advised Fleming on Bonds armament, Hughes explained. Fleming loaned it to Richard Chopping, who took it to his country home to paint the cover art. When a murder was committed with a similar gun, Scotland Yard called on Major Boothroyd. I dont have it, he told the police. I lent it (to) that Fleming fellow who writes the James Bond books. The police visited Fleming, who said, I dont have it. I lent it to my artist. For heavens sake, dont disturb his still life! Hes painting it under deadline! The exhibit features a wide variety of Bond artifacts, including a rare Fossil 007-edition watch and an invitation to the exclusive party that followed the London royal charity premiere of The Living Daylights. Bond toys and games include action gures, board games and Bond cars, including a model of the famous Gold nger Aston Martin DB5. The distinctive James Bond lm music is represented by soundtracks in several formats, including reel-to-reel tape, cassettes, 8-track tapes, record albums and CDs. Bond home videos on display include now-defunct formats like RCA SelectaVision video discs and a 1980s Beta videocassette. The display immediately caught the eye of Laurel Hill resident Mickey Givens, who reminisced about seeing the rst Bond lm, Dr. No, as a young man when it was released in the U.S. in 1963. Noticing a press photo of Sir Roger Moore, Givens shook his head. That was the prissy one, he said. I didnt care for him too much. He was too dandy. Crestview resident Austin Caudill examined the exhibit with his children, Parker, 8, and Elizabeth, 5, Tuesday evening, and explained the signi cance of the pieces to them. Oh yeah, they like James Bond, Caudill said. At least, their dad does. BONDED! AT THE LIBRARY BRIAN HUGHES | News Bulletin Left: County extension director Larry Williams encouraged gardeners to shop at locally owned garden shops like Crestview Nursery, shown here, where the selection of plants is best suited to local growing conditions.

A4 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, September 8, 2012 By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Formalizing a July 23 vote, the Crest view City Council passed a resolution Wednesday eve ning establishing a millage rate of 5.5966 for the 201213 scal year, which begins Oct. 1. The rate would gar ner the city an estimated $5,049,085 in taxes. The council held a public hear ing to adopt the millage rate and a tentative budget of $35,253,123. Both resolu tions passed unanimously. At the start of the meet ing, Councilman Charles Baugh Jr. delivered an in vocation requesting God to grant the city council the wisdom, the courage and maybe just a little adver sity in its deliberations. The council received a bit of the latter when resident Thomas Sims addressed city leaders during the hearing. Im not really up here to complain about the $35 million budget, Simms said. What we need to see is what this city is facing. Its time this city realizes how were going to gener ate more revenue. The city has provided free services for county residents. Sims cited several in stances in which he be lieved Crestview taxpayers unfairly supported their county neighbors, includ ing free library services, for which the Okaloosa County Public Library Coopera tives annual contribution to the Crestview Public Librarys operating budget does not, he believes, ad equately compensate. To me thats not fair. Im getting double taxed, Sims said, referring to both city and county taxation. It shouldnt fall all on the city people. Theres a point when we need to raise the fees on the county people, and that includes the sports and out-of-city water. Sims said he thinks the small fees county resi dents pay to play in Crest view city sports leagues or receive city water are not sufcient. He also dis puted the Crestview Fire Departments mutual aid agreement with the North Okaloosa Fire District. Were putting out their res and were pay ing for it, Sims said. Me, as a Crestview resident, were paying for their re protection? I mean, in the south end, theres no way North Okaloosa is going to respond down there. Oka loosa charges me for am bulance service. Why cant we charge the county for our services? With the hearing attend ed by just ve residents, including a city employee, a former mayor and former city councilman, Council woman Robyn Helt praised Sims for taking the time to attend and express his concerns. I appreciate you com ing tonight, Helt said. I appreciate you caring enough about the issues to state your stance. She explained the ac tions taken Wednesday night were preliminary to tackling the actual city budget, at which time there would be opportunity to revise department heads budgetary requests. Much of what you said will be addressed, Helt said. Please continue to come with your concerns and know the council is listening. The city council will de liberate strategic planning after the new year. The mill age and budget approved by resolution Wednesday night will receive a nal vote Sept. 19 and be written into ordinance. 2080625 2 08062 5 $ : @ Benefitting the Northwest Florida Daily News Newspapers in Education Program Your Name:_______________________________________________ Street Address:_____________________________________________ City, State, Zip:____________________________________________ Telephone:________________________________________________ Email:____________________________________________________ Credit Card Number :______________________EXP:_____CVV:_____ Return hand written forms to the Northwest Florida Daily News at 2 Eglin Pkwy Fort Walton Beach $ 6515822 TM Experience the Frenzy! 5 5 $ $ SALE SALE Jewelry and Accessories Jewelry and Accessories Proceeds Bene t Senior Circle North Okaloosa Medical Center Senior Circle Classroom 127A E.

www.crestviewbulletin.com F A ITH Page A5 Saturday, September 8, 2012 Just a few months ago, we closed the 2011-12 school year and entered a hiatus. On Aug. 20, we started a new school year, and with this new beginning comes transition. I believe that change is usually good. It gives each person a fresh start, a chance to make amends, an opportunity to refocus a vision a chance for recommitment. When we look at our Christian walk, at times we need to transition. Sometimes, we become stale in our faith. We can become complacent, we take our Christianity for granted, and we do not progress as we should. Priorities The purpose of your life is far greater than your personal ful llment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. Its far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest dreams and ambitions. If you want to know why you were placed on this planet, begin with God. You were born by His purpose and for His purpose. Its a matter of priorities. I suppose that most people, if asked, would list their families, their career, their security, their childs education and so on in their top ve. However, in the Bible, Paul wants us to know that God and His will for our lives should be ranked No. 1. How do we do it? Lets take a look at Gods Word. Romans 8: 1-5: There is, therefore, no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the esh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the esh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful esh, and for sin, condemned sin in the esh: That the righteousness of the law might be ful lled in us, who walk not after the esh, but after the Spirit. Walk according the Spirit Repeatedly, Ive heard people say, There is therefore now no condemnation but that is not the full message of that verse, is it. Theres a priority statement that follows the whole no-condemnation thing is for those who walk according to the Spirit. Which way we walk determines our priorities. Anytime we put our will before Gods, we walk in the esh. Anytime we intentionally ignore Gods instruction, we walk in the esh. Anytime we ood our minds with poor television and movie choices, we walk in the esh. Anytime we seek to divide instead of unite, we walk in the esh. Anytime we think were better than someone else, we walk in the esh. Anytime we envy others, we walk in the esh. Anytime we even think about sexual impureness, we walk in the esh. Anytime we hate, anytime we inappropriately use anger, anytime we become sel sh. Now, we need to be thankful that we have a loving and merciful God. Things could get ugly if we didnt! God does what we cant do However, what about grace? Love? Mercy? Thankfully, after God dealt with Gods people from Adam and Eve, through the times of Moses, and through the kings and the prophets, he realized that we were all a bunch of screw-ups who needed some help! While we were sinners, God still loved us enough to send a portion of Himself. Moreover, even when we become believers, God still loves us enough to give us His Spirit to lead, guide, and direct if we only listen. If we want to feel Gods grace, if we want to experience Gods mercy, if we want to appreciate Gods love, then we need to set our priorities in line with the priorities of God. We cannot do it on our own. Throughout human history, we have tried and failed. However, what we couldnt handle, God could. When Jesus entered that room and told us, Peace, be still! it was then we knew what our priority must be. Even Thomas doubted no more. Its not our way that matters; we make decisions based on very little information compared to Gods vast knowledge. Its that lettinggo-and-letting-God theme revisited. Once weve given up our way, God is waiting for us to see it his way. Setting our minds This leads us back to the inevitable question: How do we live according to the Spirit, as Paul wrote? The answer is found in another one of Pauls letters, to the Galatians. In Galatians 5:16, 22-23 and 25, he stated, I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not ful ll the lust of the esh the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self-control. Against such there is no law If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Is your mind set upon these things? If so, then God is pretty close to your top priority. If you cant nd yourself in that list, or if youve lost the list somewhere along the way, I invite you to turn your life over, making the decision to walk in the Spirit, allowing God to do what we could not, setting your mind on these things so that your direction may be God-centered, instead of you-centered. Where we set our minds actually dictates our direction. Living according to the Spirit means setting our minds on the things of the Spirit. The Rev.

Special to the News Bulletin TALLAHASSEE The Florida Division of Emer gency Management notes that September is the historical peak of hurricane season, and there is no better time than today to get a plan for your family or business. In 2004, September was des ignated as National Preparedness Month follow ing the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City. Florida Preparedness Month provides a great opportunity to educate Floridas residents and visitors on the importance of having a plan and di saster supply kit, FDEM Director Bryan W. Koon said. Regardless of where you live in Florida, you can be impacted by a tropical weather system. Many in our state have felt the impact of weather systems this season with Tropical Storms Beryl and Debby and Hurricane Isaac. You do not have to live in a coastal community to be impacted. While Florida is the most hurricane-vulnerable state in the nation, it is important to be prepared for all natural and human-made hazards that may affect the state, ofcials said. Natural hazards facing Florida include extreme heat, tropical weather, thunderstorms, tornadoes, wildre, oods and drought. National Preparedness Month was established in response to the largest human-made disaster on American soil. HOW TO BE PREP ARED Floridians can develop a disaster preparedness plan based on their own needs, and an emergency supply kit to sustain themselves and their family for up to 72 hours after a disaster by visiting www. FloridaDisaster.org. Kids can also build their own disaster supply kit at www.kidsgetaplan.com. Students, parents and teachers can also obtain safety information, books and learning tools to be better prepared. The 2012 Atlantic hurricane season began on June 1. Halfway through the six-month season, three tropical storms have already affected Florida and 13 tropical systems have been named, including seven tropical storms and ve hurricanes.

Local Crestview News Bulletin | A9 Saturday, September 8, 2012 a time, explaining each course and its ingredients. The presentation was a sneak peek of his show Oct. 6 at the Dash Around the Table Cooking Show and Expo at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. As the people at Fisher House chatted with one another and took in the savory smells coming from the kitchen, Ashton whisked his dressing, added a few pinches of course sea salt and gave it a taste. Just lovely, he said, before setting down the dressing and moving to his next dish. I want to make mealtime matter. Food should be fun, and it should be something you can share with your family in the kitchen or around the table. Tom Rice, president of Fisher Houses board of directors, said it will celebrate its second anniversary this month. Almost 1,000 military men and women have stayed there while recovering from injuries or receiving medical treatment. The house always smells nice, clean, but when you have someone in the kitchen, it no longer smells like a house; it smells like a home, Rice said. Cooking is something everyone can share, and were grateful Jon could come out. Among those getting a taste of Ashtons cooking was Army Staff Sgt. Aaron Hale, who lost his sight last December when he was injured by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan. Hale said he learned of the lunch just a few hours beforehand. I made a sandwich today, he said, laughing. I guess I have lunch for tomorrow now. I had no idea this was going on, but it smells good. Hale, a former Navy cook, said he has a passion for cooking and was excited to try Ashtons dishes and perhaps get a few tips. I tend to pick things apart, but this is delicious, Hale said as he nished his dessert. Ashton, a chef for 20 years, said moments like Wednesday afternoon are what remind him that his dreams have come true. To come here and do this, its a marvelous treat, Ashton said. Its a good treat to do this for Aaron. He can pick up his phone anytime and Ill cook for him. In return, Williamson nominated Clifton Hall, and both Toles and Ad ams voted against the suggestion. Williamson continued by nominating Charles Lennard, with the same result. We will try it again next time, Hendren said, following the outcome. Williamson said she has nothing against James or any of the candidates. I just didnt approve of his voting record, she said, adding that she enjoyed working with James and would wel come him or any of the other candidates, should they get the position. I just want to do what is best for the city, Wil liamson said. In other council news, city leaders: Approved the pur chase of 10 ush hy drants, a gate valve and other hardware for the city water department. The purchase is estimat ed to cost $10,000. Approved the pur chase of two automated external debrillator units for the volunteer re department. Approved internal audits for August on the citys general and water funds. DASH from page A1 Okaloosa County public in formation ofcer Kathy Newby announced 13 road closures on Wednesday afternoon, 12 of them along the Blackwater. The 13th closure, Old Dorcas Road in the Dorcas community east of Crestview, was affected by a crest riding down the Shoal River, and three roads near Baker remained closed Thursday morning. The Shoal River at Highway 90 is currently at 16.1 feet, and it appears it has crested, McDaniel reported Wednesday. It should start dropping very soon. Thursday morning, county Public Works crews patrolled the previously closed roads, checking the depth of estuaries crossed by local roads and reopening most of the roads closed the previous day. The Blackwater is rising, McDaniel said Wednesday. It is currently at 16.4 feet. It is at mod erate ood stage. At that level, we have some homes that could be threatened. We have notied the residents through the Code Red system, but the river has caused ooding on the roadways. According to the National Weather Service website, the riv er ultimately reached 17.02 feet, more than a foot above the mod erate ood stage. By Thursday morning, however, it had dropped to 11.5 feet and was predicted to keep falling. Peaden Bridge, east of the Beaver Creek community, re opened Thursday morning, though the water was barely a foot below the bridge supports. The fast current pushed debris against the bridge structure, and water ooded the forested banks lining the river. Though the Yellow River, at 8.84 feet, was higher than normal as it crossed U.S. Highway 90, it did not pose a signicant threat, McDaniel said. Flood stage for the river is 12 feet, according to the weather service. The Yellow River is behav ing very well, he said. Its sup posed to crest at 7.9 feet, which is below ood stage. As the ood waters receded, McDaniel said his department already was eying the next sus picious storm system developing in the southern Gulf of Mexico, which is being monitored by the National Hurricane Center in Miami. The low pressure has moved out into the Gulf and has been assigned a number, McDan iel said. That means theyre watching it for tropic develop ment. Currently, according to the NHC, it has a 43 percent chance of turning into a tropical cyclone. If that happens, the current models have it running toward the Big Bend and main peninsu la of Florida, although they show (it) drifting southwest and head ing back to the East. COUNCIL from page A1 FLOOD from page A1BRIAN HUG H ES | News BulletinA bove woodlands lining Blackwater River, north of Baker, were ooded by swift, high water swept downstream after being dumped in the central part of the county by Hurricane Isaacs remnants. At right the fast-owing ood-stage current of the Blackwater River pushed debris against the Peaden Bridge structure Thursday morning.

Page A12 By BRANDON WALKER 315-1476 | @BrandonWnwfdn bwalker@nwfdailynews.com CRESTVIEW The mystery surrounding the panhandles hottest prep football prospect is over. Crestview defensive end Denzel Ware, a junior wanted by major college football programs across the country, committed to Florida State on his visit to the school over the weekend. Ware, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound defensive end, is Florida States sixth commitment for the 2014 class. It feels great, Ware said of making his decision after FSUs 69-3 win over Murray State on Saturday. Watching the game, I watched (defensive end) Brandon Jenkins and sat in the recruiting section and got a tour of the school. I just felt like the time was right. The commitment capped quite a weekend for Ware. On Friday night, the junior defender opened the 2012 high school football season in style, collecting 12 tackles and three sacks in a 24-14 win over visiting Milton. On Saturday came the trip to Tallahassee and the inevitable commitment. Ware, who says his commitment to FSU is rm, still plans on visiting other schools. He currently sports offers from Alabama, LSU, Ohio State and Southern Cal, along with dozens of others. Ware says he chose FSU over Alabama and USC. The commitment gives Crestview a pair of future Division I athletes, as senior running back Micah Reed is currently committed to the University of Central Florida. A third Bulldog, defensive end Dillan Lawson, was previously committed to the University of Florida before re-opening his recruitment. For Ware, the timing of his commitment to FSU just felt right. I have a great bond with the coaches, Ware said. I like the tradition. I just really love it. By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com FORT WALTON BEACH For almost 30 years, David Garner has patrolled Okaloosa Countys dugouts as a head baseball coach. In that time, he has taught hundreds of young men how to succeed in baseball and in life. Now, the 57year old, who got his start at Crestview in 1984, is retiring from coaching the sons of other people so he can spend time with his young son, Gabe, and his wife, Cindy. I knew in my heart, a couple of years ago, this day was coming soon with our miracle boy, Gabe, having come to us at this stage in my life and my career, Garner said. Ive never been on campus in this county when I didnt have something to do with baseball, and 25 years of it was as a head baseball coach. You struggle with (the decision to retire), but its the best thing for me and my family. I want a better way of life and quality time with my wife and son now. Garners record as a coach speaks for itself. Garner coached at Crestview, Niceville, Okaloosa-Walton Community College, Northwest Florida State College, Niceville again and Fort Walton Beach. He also spent time at Panama City Rutherford. He steps away from coaching with a record of 653 -312-3. Garner was the rst coach that then Raider athletic director Mickey Englett hired when the college reinstated its athletic program, and all Garner had was Engletts promise and a dream for success as he set about selling recruits on the program. I was so red up that it didnt matter to me that I was selling them on just a mound of dirt because thats all we had, Garner said. Coach Englett and me used to meet every Sunday while I was still at Niceville and we would think about some plans for the facility and the eld and the bullpens and where things should go. That was an exciting time for me. I was so proud to start that program because I drove by it every day and I would come to work and I would turn left and there was the college and my kids at Niceville or Crestview, all of the local kids were going someplace else to play. Garner coached the Raiders 11 years and took them to the state playoffs ve times. However, more than the wins and losses are the lives he has touched. Several of Garners former players have gone into teaching and coaching as well as the administrative end of education. Crestview baseball coach Tim Gillis, one of Garners rst players at Crestview, is quick to credit Garner for his in uence on his life. I remember, even in high school, he was a good baseball man. But after baseball was over, he wrote me a letter to get me a look at Livingston, which is now the University of West Alabama, Gillis said. He wrote some things in that letter that still stick with me today. He talked about the character that I had and he talked well of my family, and that meant a lot to me. Thats been 25 to 30 years ago, and I still remember that and it meant a lot to me. When Garner led Niceville to the 1989 state semi nals, his shortstop was Charlie Marello. Marello, now the Emerald Coast Middle School principal, was the rst player Garner signed when he started the Northwest Florida State baseball program. Marellos voice cracks with emotion when he speaks of his coach. From the time I was 14 years old, on through high school, junior college and college, I wanted to please coach Garner, Marello said. He was a role model and mentor. When I decided what I wanted to do with my life, I decided rst and foremost I wanted to try and do for some kid what he did for me. I couldnt sum up in a few sentences in an interview situation about what Coach Garner meant to me. I can only say, the reason I chose to get into the education business and to work with kids is because I wanted to try to have the same positive impact on kids he had on me. Hes the reason Ive been able to do the things Ive done. Through the years, several of Garners players advanced to many of the top Division I college programs in the country as well as to the professional ranks. Five of those players Jason Michaels, Tim Spooneybarger, Bobby Henley, Peter Munro and Tony Sipp made it to the Major Leagues. Sipp, who was on Garners last Raider team in 2002, is still in the big leagues pitching for the Cleveland Indians. But true to himself and all of the kids he has coached, Garner doesnt get caught up in the number of his players who made it to the top. Instead, he focuses on growing his players on the eld and in life while trying to give them an enjoyable baseball experience. I wish I could tell you how many have gone to the pros and major college, but thats not what the deal has been all about with me, he said. Its been about the relationships that I have had with these kids and trying to get them to be better people and to coach them up and be a better baseball player if I can. And hopefully, when they come back, they can say these were some of the happiest days of my career, whether I played college ball or pro ball or minor league ball or not. By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Down two sets to zero to Crestview, the Walton volleyball team was far from out Tuesday night. A gutsy Braves squad rallied all the way back to win the match 3-2 by scores of 15-25, 1425, 25-15, 25-21 and 15-13. We missed a lot of serves in the rst two games, but it was just momentum, Braves coach Maria Harrell said. Momentum is a sport in itself. (The game) is three percent carrying on your business and 97 percent momentum and the head game. We settled down and took care of what we needed to and we never gave up. The Bulldogs made things look easy in taking the rst two sets. Walton only led once in the two sets, and that came at 1-0 in the second set. Molly Kitchen gave the Bulldogs a quick 3-0 lead in the rst set with some timely serves. Crestview stretched the lead to 14-6 on back-to-back kills by Malia Gandy, with Molly Woodard in serve, as the Bulldogs cruised to an easy win in the set. It was more of the same in the second set, as Brittany Pase and Haleigh Hollinhead led the Crestview charge. But things changed in the third set with Courtney Brown in serve for Walton (2-0). The Braves rolled off seven straight points to open the set and never looked back. It was a team effort as Brown, Shalyn Bailey and Ashley Harper led the charge that propelled the Braves to the win. Brown led the charge again in the fourth set as the Braves scored eight straight points while she was serving. As Harrell pointed out, once the Braves started getting their serves down, things changed in their favor. Walton led 17-7 in the fourth set and seemed to have things under control, but Pase led a Bulldog charge that saw Crestview close the Walton lead to 19-17. That would be as close as the Bulldogs would get. Camri Thoms was in serve for Walton as the Braves jumped in front, 3-0, in the nal set. But things were far from nished as Crestview battled back and led, 12-10. However, Thomas and Brown had a hand in four of Waltons nal ve points that gave the Braves the win.

Though the Emerald Coast dodged a direct strike from the storm as it headed into Louisiana, the area experienced several inches of rain in some parts of the north county. As the sun peeped out earlier this week, however, Isaac made himself felt again when heavy rains dumped water in the central part of the United States that sent crests down local estuaries. Randy McDaniel, chief of emergency management for Okaloosa County, said though the Crestview area was not affected, communities north of Baker along the Blackwater River suffered some ooding and road closures. Council seat still vacant after 18 monthsBy MATTHEW BROWN682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com LAUREL HILL Like most city council meetings, a copy of the nights agenda is available upon request to anyone attending. Each agenda lists what will be discussed or voted on during the meeting. These items typically change or, at least, dont show up repeatedly on agendas, for months. However, one item has remained on the Laurel Hill city council agenda for more than a year: it concerns a vacant council seat. Its just going to continue, unless one of the council members is unable to make it to a meeting, Councilman Larry Hendren said of the councils deadlock on the issue. Either that, or someone will take the seat in the next council election. During each meeting, the same names have been mentioned for lling the position. These include Mike Blizzard, Charles Lennard, Clifton Hall and former council member Johnny James. In March 2011, James missed the election submission deadline because of a death in his family. Since then, none of the candidates has been nominated because of a lack of a majority vote. The most recent example happened Tuesday, when the council received a motion to nominate a new member. The rst name mentioned was James. Both council members Robby Adams and Willie Mae Toles voted in favor of the nomination, but Councilwoman Betty Williamson and Hendren opposed his nomination, splitting the vote 2-2.

Downtown parking lot becoming a realityBy MATTHEW BROWN682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewB@crestviewbulletin.com C RESTV TV IEW Motorists soon might have more room for parking. A new parking lot will be situated near the corner of Railroad Avenue and Wilson Street, across the railroad tracks from Crestview City Hall. The lot also will provide parking for the new Florida A&M Rural Diversity Healthcare Center. We are getting the contracts nalized, city engineer Fred Cook said. Utility Solutions Group of Defuniak Springs will be responsible for the project, Cook said, adding, The contract limits the contractor to 90 days to have the project completed. The plans call for 79 parking spaces spanning 1.10 acres, Cook said. The city purchased the lot last year from Crestview Property Services LLC, which attorney and county commissioner-elect Nathan Boyles and his family members co-own. The city council voted to pay the company $102,500 for the property. The development comes after four years of unsuccessful attempts to secure land for the project. In December 2010, the city interested in purchasing property on East Woodruff Avenue made a $1 million offer to a local banker who owned a .76-acre lot. According to a newspaper article, the lot would have provided 82 parking spaces. The city was going to use $750,000 from a Community Development Block Grant, plus $250,000 in matching funds from the Community Redevelopment Agency. That plan fell through when the property owner raised the price and eventually removed the offer to sell the property. In April 2011, the council considered buying a quarter-acre at 378 Woodruff Ave. However, after numerous discussions with the owner, the council decided not to pursue the property further.

As autumns cooler weather settles into Northwest Florida, its the best time to be planting, he said. Speaking at the Crestview Public Librarys monthly First Tuesday lecture, Williams stressed that despite springs reputation throughout the rest of the country as planting season, its the autumnal equinox six months later that actually heralds the best local time to plant. Ive been trying to convince people that fall is the best time to plant since Ive been an extension agent, but you cant beat the spring fever factor, Williams told the library meeting rooms overow audience. Spring fever just hits. Youre driven to go outside and plant something. Williams stated the reasons for planting in the fall. When we move into October and November, it is more comfortable to be outdoors, he said. The survival rate goes up for those trees and shrubs planted in the fall of the year. Some of your locally owned nurseries will typically get your best selection of trees and shrubs in the fall, and those garden centers need our business this time of year.By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW The Hub Citys Toastmasters International clubs was well-represented at the organizations 81st annual convention, held Aug. 15-18 in Orlando, said Esin Gershaw. Gershaw, who belongs to the Hurlburt Toastmasters club, was one of the Crestview clubs sponsors. The local clubs are part of the worldwide organizations District 77, which encompasses 80 Toastmaster clubs with over 1,000 members across Northwest Florida, Alabama and Southeast Mississippi, Gershaw said. A native of Turkey, Gershaw is a former Miss Aegean, one-time Miss USO and a fashion model since she was 15. She has lived in Crestview for nearly 18 years. Though she has been involved with Toastmasters International for 10 years, attending this years international convention was a rst for her, she said. This was my rst TI annual conference that I attended, she said. I was happy that it was close to home this time. The next one will be in Cincinnati, and the next one after that will be in the Orient. At the Orlando convention, Gershaws fellow club member, Manuel Manny Martinez, placed third in one of nine seminal contests in the Toastmasters International Speech Contest. Gershaw also had the opportunity to meet Ryan Avery, the organizations 2012 World Champion Public Speaker. Gershaw holds the rank of Distinguished Toastmaster, the organizations highest accolade. To achieve the rank and add the initials DTM after her name, Gershaw rst had to progress through six lower ofcer positions. She also had to perform more than 40 public presentations, both within her club and in the community. I have held all seven club ofcer positions, and have participated in a variety of educational and leadership activities that Toastmasters International offers, Gershaw said.

FaFALL PLantingANTING tiTIMeE tiTIPsSUniversity of Florida/IFAS Okaloosa County Extension director Larry Williams offered useful tips for planting during autumn, the best planting season for Northwest Florida. Local nurseries carry plants best suited for local planting, as opposed to box stores whose out-of-state buyers arent familiar with local conditions, he advised. Annuals: sow seeds in late October for bachelor buttons, calendula, candytuft, larkspur, nasturtium, poppies, sweet alyssum and sweet pea. Shrubs, P Perennials: Plant hollies, azaleas, dogwoods, crepe myrtles, oaks and most perennials in fall to early winter. Vegetables: Plant from fall to early spring: beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts (best planted as fall crop), cabbage, carrots, cauliower, collards, garlic, kohlrabi, green onions, radishes, shallots, Swiss card and turnips. Bulbing onions: Plant Excel, Texas Grano, Granex, White Granex and Tropicana Red from October to early December. Strawberries: Plant in October and November. Do not wait until the big box stores put out strawberry plants in the spring, Williams said. Plant Florida 90, Tioga, Sequoia, Florida Belle, Sweet Charlie, Chandler, Camarosa and Strawberry Festival. Herbs: Plant when it turns cool. Among herbs that dwell locally are parsley, oregano, sage, thyme, rosemary and sweet marjoram; sow seeds like dill, fennel, chervil, arugula and cilantro.

Crestview News Bulletin | A3Saturday, September 8, 2012Lori Jansen was a step ahead of Williams. Three days before his lecture, the Crestview resident was towing a wagon laden with golden streak dianellas around Crestview Nurseries, more familiarly known to many locals as Tommy Horns. Im trying to nd plants for a perennial garden, one I dont have to keep redoing, Jansen said. Were redoing some gardens, kind of an erosion control thing. Crestview resident Dot Moxey said she was looking forward to planting her fall garden and took copious notes as Williams listed some of the numerous plants that fare best when planted in the fall. Oh yes, Im getting ready to do my garden, Moxey said. I transplanted a couple bulbs yesterday. They might be owers or they might be really good grass. Well nd out soon as they come up. New Jersey native Phyllis Alles has lived locally more than 16 years, and has nally come to grips with the areas sandy soil. She hung around after Williams presentation to pick his brain some more. I realized theres no way Ill ever be able to have a decent lawn, Alles said. Ive learned to go with native plants. The rst year I planted here, everything dried up and wilted. Williams advised planting monkey grass also called border grass if Alles lawn is shady. She especially liked his recommendation to go with native plants such as Asiatic jasmine, which provides a useful groundcover. It costs a lot of have a lawn, and peoples expectations and what it takes to get there dont match, Williams said. Most people do not have the time to achieve a good lawn. Its a want they cant achieve. Williams also cautioned against winterizing a local lawn by spreading winter fertilizer mixes, a practice often seen farther north. The practice encourages young grass shoots to grow that are then killed off by frost. Do not buy into the idea of winterizing. Winterizing does not work this far south, Williams said. If you throw that (fertilizer) out there, youre not doing your pocketbook a favor; youre not doing your lawn a favor. Youre doing the brown patch (a grass-killing fungus) a favor and the guy who re-sods your lawn a favor. Okaloosa Master Gardeners, including past president Marg Stewart, were on hand with Williams to answer audience members questions. The trained gardening experts volunteer countless annual hours to help local amateur gardeners. The Master Gardeners helped me design my yard. They are great people, Jansen said. They came over to advise me on our erosion problem, and Ive been calling on them ever since. Above all, just have fun with the fall growing season and reap the bene ts come spring, Williams advised. We worry ourselves silly about things we shouldnt be worrying about. Fall is for fun, he said. Its the best time of year. Theres so many things to enjoy in the fall than worrying about an imperfect lawn or azaleas dying. 8587349 Check out our NEW Daily Specials 85873492493 S.

LocalStaff Report682-6524 news@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW As the worlds most successful continuing lm series celebrates a half-century of entertaining audiences around the globe, the Crestview Public Library leaps on the Bond wagon with a two-month exhibition of memorabilia from a local collectors archives. Included are some of the books that launched the whole Bond craze 60 years ago. Bonded! 60 years of James Bond Books. 50 Years of James Bond Films features materials from the collection of Crestview News Bulletin Arts and Entertainment Editor Brian Hughes, who has been collecting James Bond memorabilia since high school. He bought his rst Ian Fleming Bond novel with money earmarked for a class book. Mom gave me a couple bucks to buy a German/ English dictionary for my high school German class, Hughes recalled. There was a display of the movie edition of Diamonds Are Forever by the front door of the bookshop. I bought it instead. The exhibit at the library includes reprints made from original plates of Flemings earliest Bond novels, including his rst 007 adventure, Casino Royale, written early in 1952. Also included are several examples of cover art by English artist Richard Chopping. His painting for From Russia With Love got mixed up in a murder, Hughes said. Fleming borrowed the gun featured in the painting from Major Boothroyd, who advised Fleming on Bonds armament, Hughes explained. Fleming loaned it to Richard Chopping, who took it to his country home to paint the cover art. When a murder was committed with a similar gun, Scotland Yard called on Major Boothroyd. I dont have it, he told the police. I lent it (to) that Fleming fellow who writes the James Bond books. The police visited Fleming, who said, I dont have it. I lent it to my artist. For heavens sake, dont disturb his still life! Hes painting it under deadline! The exhibit features a wide variety of Bond artifacts, including a rare Fossil 007-edition watch and an invitation to the exclusive party that followed the London royal charity premiere of The Living Daylights. Bond toys and games include action gures, board games and Bond cars, including a model of the famous Gold nger Aston Martin DB5. The distinctive James Bond lm music is represented by soundtracks in several formats, including reel-to-reel tape, cassettes, 8-track tapes, record albums and CDs. Bond home videos on display include now-defunct formats like RCA SelectaVision video discs and a 1980s Beta videocassette. The display immediately caught the eye of Laurel Hill resident Mickey Givens, who reminisced about seeing the rst Bond lm, Dr. No, as a young man when it was released in the U.S. in 1963. Noticing a press photo of Sir Roger Moore, Givens shook his head. That was the prissy one, he said. I didnt care for him too much. He was too dandy. Crestview resident Austin Caudill examined the exhibit with his children, Parker, 8, and Elizabeth, 5, Tuesday evening, and explained the signi cance of the pieces to them. Oh yeah, they like James Bond, Caudill said. At least, their dad does.BONDED!

A4 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, September 8, 2012By BRIAN HUGHES682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Formalizing a July 23 vote, the Crestview City Council passed a resolution Wednesday evening establishing a millage rate of 5.5966 for the 201213 scal year, which begins Oct. 1. The rate would garner the city an estimated $5,049,085 in taxes. The council held a public hearing to adopt the millage rate and a tentative budget of $35,253,123. Both resolutions passed unanimously. At the start of the meeting, Councilman Charles Baugh Jr. delivered an invocation requesting God to grant the city council the wisdom, the courage and maybe just a little adversity in its deliberations. The council received a bit of the latter when resident Thomas Sims addressed city leaders during the hearing. Im not really up here to complain about the $35 million budget, Simms said. What we need to see is what this city is facing. Its time this city realizes how were going to generate more revenue. The city has provided free services for county residents. Sims cited several instances in which he believed Crestview taxpayers unfairly supported their county neighbors, including free library services, for which the Okaloosa County Public Library Cooperatives annual contribution to the Crestview Public Librarys operating budget does not, he believes, adequately compensate. To me thats not fair. Im getting double taxed, Sims said, referring to both city and county taxation. It shouldnt fall all on the city people. Theres a point when we need to raise the fees on the county people, and that includes the sports and out-of-city water. Sims said he thinks the small fees county residents pay to play in Crestview city sports leagues or receive city water are not sufcient. He also disputed the Crestview Fire Departments mutual aid agreement with the North Okaloosa Fire District. Were putting out their res and were paying for it, Sims said. Me, as a Crestview resident, were paying for their re protection? I mean, in the south end, theres no way North Okaloosa is going to respond down there. Okaloosa charges me for ambulance service. Why cant we charge the county for our services? With the hearing attended by just ve residents, including a city employee, a former mayor and former city councilman, Councilwoman Robyn Helt praised Sims for taking the time to attend and express his concerns. I appreciate you coming tonight, Helt said. I appreciate you caring enough about the issues to state your stance. She explained the actions taken Wednesday night were preliminary to tackling the actual city budget, at which time there would be opportunity to revise department heads budgetary requests. Much of what you said will be addressed, Helt said. Please continue to come with your concerns and know the council is listening. The city council will deliberate strategic planning after the new year.

www.crestviewbulletin.com FA ITHPage A5 Saturday, September 8, 2012Just a few months ago, we closed the 2011-12 school year and entered a hiatus. On Aug. 20, we started a new school year, and with this new beginning comes transition. I believe that change is usually good. It gives each person a fresh start, a chance to make amends, an opportunity to refocus a vision a chance for recommitment. When we look at our Christian walk, at times we need to transition. Sometimes, we become stale in our faith. We can become complacent, we take our Christianity for granted, and we do not progress as we should. PrioritiesThe purpose of your life is far greater than your personal ful llment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. Its far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest dreams and ambitions. If you want to know why you were placed on this planet, begin with God. You were born by His purpose and for His purpose. Its a matter of priorities. I suppose that most people, if asked, would list their families, their career, their security, their childs education and so on in their top ve. However, in the Bible, Paul wants us to know that God and His will for our lives should be ranked No. 1. How do we do it? Lets take a look at Gods Word. Romans 8: 1-5: There is, therefore, no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the esh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the esh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful esh, and for sin, condemned sin in the esh: That the righteousness of the law might be ful lled in us, who walk not after the esh, but after the Spirit. Walk according the Spirit Repeatedly, Ive heard people say, There is therefore now no condemnation but that is not the full message of that verse, is it. Theres a priority statement that follows the whole no-condemnation thing is for those who walk according to the Spirit. Which way we walk determines our priorities. Anytime we put our will before Gods, we walk in the esh. Anytime we intentionally ignore Gods instruction, we walk in the esh. Anytime we ood our minds with poor television and movie choices, we walk in the esh. Anytime we seek to divide instead of unite, we walk in the esh. Anytime we think were better than someone else, we walk in the esh. Anytime we envy others, we walk in the esh. Anytime we even think about sexual impureness, we walk in the esh. Anytime we hate, anytime we inappropriately use anger, anytime we become sel sh. Now, we need to be thankful that we have a loving and merciful God. Things could get ugly if we didnt! God does what we cant doHowever, what about grace? Love? Mercy? Thankfully, after God dealt with Gods people from Adam and Eve, through the times of Moses, and through the kings and the prophets, he realized that we were all a bunch of screw-ups who needed some help! While we were sinners, God still loved us enough to send a portion of Himself. Moreover, even when we become believers, God still loves us enough to give us His Spirit to lead, guide, and direct if we only listen. If we want to feel Gods grace, if we want to experience Gods mercy, if we want to appreciate Gods love, then we need to set our priorities in line with the priorities of God. We cannot do it on our own. Throughout human history, we have tried and failed. However, what we couldnt handle, God could. When Jesus entered that room and told us, Peace, be still! it was then we knew what our priority must be. Even Thomas doubted no more. Its not our way that matters; we make decisions based on very little information compared to Gods vast knowledge. Its that lettinggo-and-letting-God theme revisited. Once weve given up our way, God is waiting for us to see it his way.Setting our mindsThis leads us back to the inevitable question: How do we live according to the Spirit, as Paul wrote? The answer is found in another one of Pauls letters, to the Galatians. In Galatians 5:16, 22-23 and 25, he stated, I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not ful ll the lust of the esh the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self-control. Against such there is no law If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Is your mind set upon these things? If so, then God is pretty close to your top priority. If you cant nd yourself in that list, or if youve lost the list somewhere along the way, I invite you to turn your life over, making the decision to walk in the Spirit, allowing God to do what we could not, setting your mind on these things so that your direction may be God-centered, instead of you-centered. Where we set our minds actually dictates our direction. Living according to the Spirit means setting our minds on the things of the Spirit. The Rev.

Special to the News BulletinTALLAHASSEE The Florida Division of Emergency Management notes that September is the historical peak of hurricane season, and there is no better time than today to get a plan for your family or business. In 2004, September was designated as National Preparedness Month following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City. Florida Preparedness Month provides a great opportunity to educate Floridas residents and visitors on the importance of having a plan and disaster supply kit, FDEM Director Bryan W. Koon said. Regardless of where you live in Florida, you can be impacted by a tropical weather system. Many in our state have felt the impact of weather systems this season with Tropical Storms Beryl and Debby and Hurricane Isaac. You do not have to live in a coastal community to be impacted. While Florida is the most hurricane-vulnerable state in the nation, it is important to be prepared for all natural and human-made hazards that may affect the state, ofcials said. Natural hazards facing Florida include extreme heat, tropical weather, thunderstorms, tornadoes, wildre, oods and drought. National Preparedness Month was established in response to the largest human-made disaster on American soil. hHOW tTO BeE PReEPa AReEDFloridians can develop a disaster preparedness plan based on their own needs, and an emergency supply kit to sustain themselves and their family for up to 72 hours after a disaster by visiting www. FloridaDisaster.org. Kids can also build their own disaster supply kit at www.kidsgetaplan.com. Students, parents and teachers can also obtain safety information, books and learning tools to be better prepared. The 2012 Atlantic hurricane season began on June 1. Halfway through the six-month season, three tropical storms have already affected Florida and 13 tropical systems have been named, including seven tropical storms and ve hurricanes.

LocalCrestview News Bulletin | A9Saturday, September 8, 2012a time, explaining each course and its ingredients. The presentation was a sneak peek of his show Oct. 6 at the Dash Around the Table Cooking Show and Expo at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. As the people at Fisher House chatted with one another and took in the savory smells coming from the kitchen, Ashton whisked his dressing, added a few pinches of course sea salt and gave it a taste. Just lovely, he said, before setting down the dressing and moving to his next dish. I want to make mealtime matter. Food should be fun, and it should be something you can share with your family in the kitchen or around the table. Tom Rice, president of Fisher Houses board of directors, said it will celebrate its second anniversary this month. Almost 1,000 military men and women have stayed there while recovering from injuries or receiving medical treatment. The house always smells nice, clean, but when you have someone in the kitchen, it no longer smells like a house; it smells like a home, Rice said. Cooking is something everyone can share, and were grateful Jon could come out. Among those getting a taste of Ashtons cooking was Army Staff Sgt. Aaron Hale, who lost his sight last December when he was injured by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan. Hale said he learned of the lunch just a few hours beforehand. I made a sandwich today, he said, laughing. I guess I have lunch for tomorrow now. I had no idea this was going on, but it smells good. Hale, a former Navy cook, said he has a passion for cooking and was excited to try Ashtons dishes and perhaps get a few tips. I tend to pick things apart, but this is delicious, Hale said as he nished his dessert. Ashton, a chef for 20 years, said moments like Wednesday afternoon are what remind him that his dreams have come true. To come here and do this, its a marvelous treat, Ashton said. Its a good treat to do this for Aaron. He can pick up his phone anytime and Ill cook for him. In return, Williamson nominated Clifton Hall, and both Toles and Adams voted against the suggestion. Williamson continued by nominating Charles Lennard, with the same result. We will try it again next time, Hendren said, following the outcome. Williamson said she has nothing against James or any of the candidates. I just didnt approve of his voting record, she said, adding that she enjoyed working with James and would welcome him or any of the other candidates, should they get the position. I just want to do what is best for the city, Williamson said. In other council news, city leaders: Approved the purchase of 10 ush hydrants, a gate valve and other hardware for the city water department. The purchase is estimated to cost $10,000. Approved the purchase of two automated external debrillator units for the volunteer re department. Approved internal audits for August on the citys general and water funds. DASH from page A1 Okaloosa County public information ofcer Kathy Newby announced 13 road closures on Wednesday afternoon, 12 of them along the Blackwater. The 13th closure, Old Dorcas Road in the Dorcas community east of Crestview, was affected by a crest riding down the Shoal River, and three roads near Baker remained closed Thursday morning. The Shoal River at Highway 90 is currently at 16.1 feet, and it appears it has crested, McDaniel reported Wednesday. It should start dropping very soon. Thursday morning, county Public Works crews patrolled the previously closed roads, checking the depth of estuaries crossed by local roads and reopening most of the roads closed the previous day. The Blackwater is rising, McDaniel said Wednesday. It is currently at 16.4 feet. It is at moderate ood stage. At that level, we have some homes that could be threatened. We have notied the residents through the Code Red system, but the river has caused ooding on the roadways. According to the National Weather Service website, the river ultimately reached 17.02 feet, more than a foot above the moderate ood stage. By Thursday morning, however, it had dropped to 11.5 feet and was predicted to keep falling. Peaden Bridge, east of the Beaver Creek community, reopened Thursday morning, though the water was barely a foot below the bridge supports. The fast current pushed debris against the bridge structure, and water ooded the forested banks lining the river. Though the Yellow River, at 8.84 feet, was higher than normal as it crossed U.S. Highway 90, it did not pose a signicant threat, McDaniel said. Flood stage for the river is 12 feet, according to the weather service. The Yellow River is behaving very well, he said. Its supposed to crest at 7.9 feet, which is below ood stage. As the ood waters receded, McDaniel said his department already was eying the next suspicious storm system developing in the southern Gulf of Mexico, which is being monitored by the National Hurricane Center in Miami. The low pressure has moved out into the Gulf and has been assigned a number, McDaniel said. That means theyre watching it for tropic development. Currently, according to the NHC, it has a 43 percent chance of turning into a tropical cyclone. If that happens, the current models have it running toward the Big Bend and main peninsula of Florida, although they show (it) drifting southwest and heading back to the East.

Page A12By BRANDON WALKER315-1476 | @BrandonWnwfdn bwalker@nwfdailynews.com CRESTVIEW The mystery surrounding the panhandles hottest prep football prospect is over. Crestview defensive end Denzel Ware, a junior wanted by major college football programs across the country, committed to Florida State on his visit to the school over the weekend. Ware, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound defensive end, is Florida States sixth commitment for the 2014 class. It feels great, Ware said of making his decision after FSUs 69-3 win over Murray State on Saturday. Watching the game, I watched (defensive end) Brandon Jenkins and sat in the recruiting section and got a tour of the school. I just felt like the time was right. The commitment capped quite a weekend for Ware. On Friday night, the junior defender opened the 2012 high school football season in style, collecting 12 tackles and three sacks in a 24-14 win over visiting Milton. On Saturday came the trip to Tallahassee and the inevitable commitment. Ware, who says his commitment to FSU is rm, still plans on visiting other schools. He currently sports offers from Alabama, LSU, Ohio State and Southern Cal, along with dozens of others. Ware says he chose FSU over Alabama and USC. The commitment gives Crestview a pair of future Division I athletes, as senior running back Micah Reed is currently committed to the University of Central Florida. A third Bulldog, defensive end Dillan Lawson, was previously committed to the University of Florida before re-opening his recruitment. For Ware, the timing of his commitment to FSU just felt right. I have a great bond with the coaches, Ware said. I like the tradition. I just really love it. By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com FORT WALTON BEACH For almost 30 years, David Garner has patrolled Okaloosa Countys dugouts as a head baseball coach. In that time, he has taught hundreds of young men how to succeed in baseball and in life. Now, the 57year old, who got his start at Crestview in 1984, is retiring from coaching the sons of other people so he can spend time with his young son, Gabe, and his wife, Cindy. I knew in my heart, a couple of years ago, this day was coming soon with our miracle boy, Gabe, having come to us at this stage in my life and my career, Garner said. Ive never been on campus in this county when I didnt have something to do with baseball, and 25 years of it was as a head baseball coach. You struggle with (the decision to retire), but its the best thing for me and my family. I want a better way of life and quality time with my wife and son now. Garners record as a coach speaks for itself. Garner coached at Crestview, Niceville, Okaloosa-Walton Community College, Northwest Florida State College, Niceville again and Fort Walton Beach. He also spent time at Panama City Rutherford. He steps away from coaching with a record of 653 -312-3. Garner was the rst coach that then Raider athletic director Mickey Englett hired when the college reinstated its athletic program, and all Garner had was Engletts promise and a dream for success as he set about selling recruits on the program. I was so red up that it didnt matter to me that I was selling them on just a mound of dirt because thats all we had, Garner said. Coach Englett and me used to meet every Sunday while I was still at Niceville and we would think about some plans for the facility and the eld and the bullpens and where things should go. That was an exciting time for me. I was so proud to start that program because I drove by it every day and I would come to work and I would turn left and there was the college and my kids at Niceville or Crestview, all of the local kids were going someplace else to play. Garner coached the Raiders 11 years and took them to the state playoffs ve times. However, more than the wins and losses are the lives he has touched. Several of Garners former players have gone into teaching and coaching as well as the administrative end of education. Crestview baseball coach Tim Gillis, one of Garners rst players at Crestview, is quick to credit Garner for his in uence on his life. I remember, even in high school, he was a good baseball man. But after baseball was over, he wrote me a letter to get me a look at Livingston, which is now the University of West Alabama, Gillis said. He wrote some things in that letter that still stick with me today. He talked about the character that I had and he talked well of my family, and that meant a lot to me. Thats been 25 to 30 years ago, and I still remember that and it meant a lot to me. When Garner led Niceville to the 1989 state semi nals, his shortstop was Charlie Marello. Marello, now the Emerald Coast Middle School principal, was the rst player Garner signed when he started the Northwest Florida State baseball program. Marellos voice cracks with emotion when he speaks of his coach. From the time I was 14 years old, on through high school, junior college and college, I wanted to please coach Garner, Marello said. He was a role model and mentor. When I decided what I wanted to do with my life, I decided rst and foremost I wanted to try and do for some kid what he did for me. I couldnt sum up in a few sentences in an interview situation about what Coach Garner meant to me. I can only say, the reason I chose to get into the education business and to work with kids is because I wanted to try to have the same positive impact on kids he had on me. Hes the reason Ive been able to do the things Ive done. Through the years, several of Garners players advanced to many of the top Division I college programs in the country as well as to the professional ranks. Five of those players Jason Michaels, Tim Spooneybarger, Bobby Henley, Peter Munro and Tony Sipp made it to the Major Leagues. Sipp, who was on Garners last Raider team in 2002, is still in the big leagues pitching for the Cleveland Indians. But true to himself and all of the kids he has coached, Garner doesnt get caught up in the number of his players who made it to the top. Instead, he focuses on growing his players on the eld and in life while trying to give them an enjoyable baseball experience. I wish I could tell you how many have gone to the pros and major college, but thats not what the deal has been all about with me, he said. Its been about the relationships that I have had with these kids and trying to get them to be better people and to coach them up and be a better baseball player if I can. And hopefully, when they come back, they can say these were some of the happiest days of my career, whether I played college ball or pro ball or minor league ball or not.By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Down two sets to zero to Crestview, the Walton volleyball team was far from out Tuesday night. A gutsy Braves squad rallied all the way back to win the match 3-2 by scores of 15-25, 1425, 25-15, 25-21 and 15-13. We missed a lot of serves in the rst two games, but it was just momentum, Braves coach Maria Harrell said. Momentum is a sport in itself. (The game) is three percent carrying on your business and 97 percent momentum and the head game. We settled down and took care of what we needed to and we never gave up. The Bulldogs made things look easy in taking the rst two sets. Walton only led once in the two sets, and that came at 1-0 in the second set. Molly Kitchen gave the Bulldogs a quick 3-0 lead in the rst set with some timely serves. Crestview stretched the lead to 14-6 on back-to-back kills by Malia Gandy, with Molly Woodard in serve, as the Bulldogs cruised to an easy win in the set. It was more of the same in the second set, as Brittany Pase and Haleigh Hollinhead led the Crestview charge. But things changed in the third set with Courtney Brown in serve for Walton (2-0). The Braves rolled off seven straight points to open the set and never looked back. It was a team effort as Brown, Shalyn Bailey and Ashley Harper led the charge that propelled the Braves to the win. Brown led the charge again in the fourth set as the Braves scored eight straight points while she was serving. As Harrell pointed out, once the Braves started getting their serves down, things changed in their favor. Walton led 17-7 in the fourth set and seemed to have things under control, but Pase led a Bulldog charge that saw Crestview close the Walton lead to 19-17. That would be as close as the Bulldogs would get. Camri Thoms was in serve for Walton as the Braves jumped in front, 3-0, in the nal set. But things were far from nished as Crestview battled back and led, 12-10. However, Thomas and Brown had a hand in four of Waltons nal ve points that gave the Braves the win.Crestviews Ware commits to Florida State SP O RTS www.crestviewbulletin.comSaturday, September 8, 2012 PHOTO BY RANDY DICKSON | News BulletinLongtime Okaloosa County baseball coach David Garner seen here with his son, Gabe, and wife, Cindy is stepping down from coaching after almost 30 years at Crestview, Niceville, Northwest Florida State and, most recently, Fort Walton Beach.
