By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW A vocational preparatory class at Richbourg Exceptional Student Education School is preparing select high school students for post-graduation employment. Tuesday at Uncle Bills Family Restaurant, Jesse Dobbs scurried around the dining room busing and cleaning tables under the schoolto-work program. In the kitchen, Grace Stockton stacked dishes for cleaning; nearby, her classmate Jacob Luttrell helped restaurant staffer Jo Gironda make coleslaw. The point of the program is to give students employable skills so they dont sit at home doing nothing when they can do something productive, Richbourg job coach Jeff Bowen said. Students receive school credit as they learn on the job, Bowen said. Depending on ability, they may receive training in more involved tasks. Richbourg students also gain basic work experience at the Crestview Wal-Mart, pick up range balls at Foxwood Country Club and work at Foster Families of Americas downtown thrift store. Now that they have been here, they have work skills, Bowen said. That keeps the brain engaged. They have a good chance of getting hired. Restaurant owner Bill White said he is glad to offer students an opportunity to learn work experience and is pleased with their performance. We know its tough for kids like them to go out and nd a job, he said. By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW As most downtown merchants can attest, theres one thing missing there after 5 p.m.: people. However, if Crestview attracts a $30,000 Community Planning Technical Assistance Grant from the state Department of Economic Development, empty nighttime sidewalks might echo with downtown residents footsteps. The Crestview City Council at its Monday meeting unanimously approved submitting an application for the grant. The money would fund downtown rezoning, redrawing the citys comprehensive plan and creating a mixed commercial and residential Future Land Use district. Currently, downtown residential properties are limited to single-dwelling units for commercial property owners or managers. Consequently, former residential units above most Main Street businesses remain vacant. Meanwhile, downtown residential opportunities could bene t students and staff at Florida A&M Universitys pharmacy school, growth management consultant Jack Dorman said. Its our opinion and this has been proven successfully if you keep your rst-level store fronts and businesses, but allow secondand thirdoor residential uses, you then have a population base downtown that live there, he said. Downtown residents would drive up demand for services like dry cleaners, more restaurants, shopping and entertainment venues. The result could increase the citys tax base and provide more opportunities for all residents, Dorman said. Any money the city spends on projects under the grant is reimbursable, he said. The city does not have to reimburse the state for the grant. BRIAN HUGHES | News Bulletin Downtown streets, which lack residences, typically are quiet after 5 p.m. $30K grant could boost downtown economy The citys proposal for a $30,000 Community Planning Technical Assistance Grant from the state Department of Economic Development involves these components: Create a zoning district and regulations tailored for downtown Create a Future Land Use category in the citys comprehensive plan to be imposed on the downtown district Prepare language to include a new vehicle and pedestrian circulation plan in the comprehensive plan. The grant, if approved, expires May 31, 2014. Then, property owners can decide whether they want to put residential units in their buildings. Changes could allow residential zonesFOR LIFE School-to-work program prepares ESE students for employment BRIAN HUGHES | News Bulletin Richbourg Exceptional Student Education School student Jacob Luttrell helps Jo Gironda make coleslaw at Uncle Bills Family Restaurant as owner Bill White, center rear, cooks.

APRIL 27TH THRU 30TH By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW North Crestview residents wont have to head too far south to make a run for the border if a Crestview City Council-approved Taco Bell opens as planned. The council on Monday unanimously approved North Ferdon Developments request for out-ofcity water and sewer service for the restaurants planned location next door and south of the Sonic near Crestview High School. Recently, a proposed Dollar General for the Roberts Trailer Park area across U.S. Highway 90 from Valley Road received the Local Planning Agencys approval for outof-city water service. Both projects must accept annexation into the city of Crestview to receive city water and sewer services. Owners have signed a Municipal Services Agreement with the city, guaranteeing they will annex with Crestview, according to city planner Eric Davis. The city Technical Review Committee approved the restaurants plans in October 2012, with a stipulation to address drainage concerns. The Garden Street area behind the proposed restaurant has ooded in severe rains. The Local Planning Agency approved the project and forwarded it to the city council for nal approval. There was no indication of when either project would be completed, nor how many jobs they would provide.

PROPOSED TACO BELL By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW It took nine months and countless hours of research, but for the rst time in 15 years, city ofcials and staff members can glance at a map and see Crestviews boundaries. The City Council on Monday unanimously accepted the updated map and approved having future updates incorporated into the document within 30 days of approved changes, such as annexations. Teresa Gaillard, the Administrative Services Departments mapping analyst and city planner, spearheaded the project to produce an accurate city map. She went back and researched all the ordinances and everything, City Clerk Betsy Roy said. Now, going forward, shell be able to update the map without going through the council. Now it can be updated whenever theres an annexation. City attorney Jerry Miller expressed concern for the lack of an updated city map when he started his position in spring 2012. On Monday, he called failure to update the old map a ministerial de ciency. Knowing exactly where your city limits are and having them described in a uniform way is critical to so many jurisdictional issues, he said. He called the previous map, which lacked updates on annexations, comprehensive plan amendments and rezoning, an absolute heyday for any (legal) challenges. From 2004 to 2010, the city has more than doubled in acreage, but updates to the previous map had not kept pace with the citys growth, Roy said. Land surveyor Kermit George produced Crestviews last comprehensive map in 1998; it was sporadically but not comprehensively updated, Roy stated in an agenda brief.

COMMUNITY www.crestviewbulletin.com By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW City Clerk Betsy Roy has called a new city facilities rental fee schedule simpler, easier and more fair across the board. The fee schedule, which the city council unanimously approved April 22, delineates rental charges for the Crestview Community Center, Warriors Hall in the Whitehurst Municipal Building and the Old Spanish Trail Park amphitheater. Though the rental schedule was simpli ed, eliminating per-hour charges, most increased. For example, the Community Center rental period expanded to Most city facility rental charges increase See RENTAL A5

The girls, wielding rakes, hoes and shovels, were under the supervision of two dads, two moms and Joel Carden of Crestview landscaping company 7Cs Services. Charlee Becker of the Crestview Kiwanis Club assisted them. Kiwanis members donated a blue birdbath and an oval polished stone marker dedicating the buttery garden to Sandy Hook victims.

By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com Editors Note: This is the third in a series on north Okaloosa County Teachers of the Year. CRESTVIEW Tulsa Moore is quite a multi-tasker: She teaches computer-based curriculum at Shoal River Middle School and is the schools media specialist, the schools webmaster, and tackles other duties as needed. I do whatever the school needs me to, she said. Moore spends one period in the schools media center, cataloging or organizing bookshelves. What I enjoy the most is talking to students about books and helping them pick out a book they would enjoy, she said. Moore teaches several levels of IT education. The way we divide our classes here is year one, year two and year three, she said. The rst year is an introduction to computers. The second year helps students earn high school certi cations in learning to use Microsoft programs like Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The third year involves web design, which students can use for high school credit. Recently, Moore, an Okaloosa County teacher since 1993, was named the schools Teacher of the Year. I would have been just as happy for any other teacher (if he or she won) because I know how hard everybody works, she said. She previously earned the title in the 1998-99 school year, when she taught science at Richbourg Middle School. She is ultra professional, Principal Paul Whiddon said. She is such a dynamic teacher. Several students said they enjoy her class. She will work with students individually if they need help, Isaac Suendermann, 13, said. Overall, she is just very caring. Hannah Nelson, 14, said she has found the IT classes to be bene cial. She has given me a lot more opportunities ... I have learned how to help people in the community with their computers and their electronics just by attending her class, Nelson said. Sachit Sharma, 13, enjoyed Moores class so much that he became her teachers aide. Mrs. Moore is a wonderful teacher, Sharma said. She does a wonderful job explaining to students what works best for them.

SPORTS www.crestviewbulletin.com Saturday, April 27, 2013 A Page 10 Section By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Roman Donofro supplied the pitching and Tate Sweatt brought the power Tuesday as Crestview High Schools baseball team faced Niceville in the District 2-6A tournament semi nals. Donofro went the distance on the mound, throwing a ve-hit shutout and striking out 11 Eagle batters. Sweatt had a pair of tworun doubles as the Bulldogs rolled to a 6-0 win, earning a spot in the state playoffs. What a game, Bulldog coach Tim Gillis said. We battled all night. Roman was absolutely outstanding. Tate Sweatt had some huge hits with four RBIs. And again, we had contributions from everywhere in the lineup. The games rst three innings provided a pitching battle between Donofro and Niceville starter Nick Junger. Donofro limited the Eagles (195) to two hits and a pair of walks through the rst three frames. Junger was slightly better through three as he gave up just one walk and one hit. Niceville threatened in the third inning when Andrew Engle led with a single and Donofro walked the next batter, Tyler Kinard. The momentum swung Crestviews way when Donofro struck out Elliot Cary for the innings rst out. It compounded when Bulldog catcher Austin Armstrong threw Engle out trying to steal third for the innings second out. Crestview, the tournaments No. 3 seed, rode the momentum into the top of the fourth inning. Seth Thomason and Armstrong led off the fourth by drawing backto-back walks from Junger. Justin Rebholz, the innings third Bulldog batter, dropped down a perfect bunt for a base hit to load the bases. A Junger wild pitch allowed Thomason to score. Sweatt then drove a Junger fastball into rightcenter eld to score Drew Graham, who ran for Armstrong, and Rebholz. The Bulldogs (20-5) put the game out of reach with three more runs in the fth. Tyler Henderson led off the inning with a single. Corey Armstrong was next and drew a walk. Thomason took a two-strike pitch from Junger to right eld, scoring Henderson. Sweatt doubled down the third base line with two out to score Corey Armstrong and Thomason for a pair of insurance runs. Sweatt said it was probably the best game of his high school career at the plate. After drilling a fastball for his rst double, he turned on a Junger curveball for his second double. Donofro struck out the side in the Niceville fth inning. The Eagles threatened in the sixth inning as they loaded the bases on a pair of walks and a base hit. Donofro got out of the jam by striking out pinch hitter Zack Shield. Engle walked to lead off the Niceville seventh, but three y ball outs to the out eld sealed the Bulldogs win. It feels better than any other feeling Ive ever had, Donofro said. This was our goal (to make the playoffs) from the beginning (of the season). We knew we had a chance this year and we are getting it done. There really are no words for how it feels to beat Niceville three times in the same season. When they beat us in the preseason, I had no clue what was going to be in store for us. Sweatt, like Donofro, struggled to nd the words to describe what the win meant to him. Its real big, Ive been thinking about it for weeks now and Ive been praying about it. It just feels real good. Rebholz topped the Bulldogs with three hits. Sweatt and Henderson each had two hits. Donofro, Sweatt lead Bulldogs to semifinal win By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Davis Champion lived up to his last name Thursday night. Crestview High Schools senior pitcher went the distance on the mound, and Dakota Dean had a pair of hits and scored a run as the Bulldogs beat Mosley 3-2 to claim the District 2-6A baseball title. The district title was the second in three years for the Bulldogs, who won the District 2-5A championship in 2011. Crestview (21-5) will host Tate at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Class 6A region quarter nals. It feels great to get our second championship in three years, Dean said, especially since Im a senior. Champion earned the win the hard way, scattering 11 Dolphin hits to go along with just four strikeouts. But Champion made Mosley batters work to reach base, as he didnt allow a walk. This is the greatest feeling ever, Champion said. I was ready for it. I was ready to take the ball. This was four years in the making. This team has just bonded completely together. Its the greatest team out there now. Crestview coach Tim Gillis couldnt say enough good things about of Champions effort. He was just awesome, Gillis said. Every pitch was working for him. I cant say enough for the way he stepped up and got the job done. The Bulldog defense helped the cause with a pair of double plays. Crestview also came up with a big play at the plate in the second inning when Mosleys Connor Green was thrown out trying to score from second base on a base hit by Jordan Larry. Bulldog right elder Justin Rebholz made a perfect throw to cutoff man Seth Thomason. Thomason then red a strike to catcher Austin Armstrong for the out. The Dolphins (24-3), the states No. 1 Class 6A team, looked as if they were going to make short work of things with four-consecutive one-out hits in the rst inning. But Mosley got one run out of the threat, as the inning ended on the rst double play. The Bulldogs tied things up in the third inning as Dean tripled and scored on a passed ball. Mosley strung together three more hits good for another run in the bottom of the fourth inning, but another double play snuffed out the threat. Crestview got back-to-back doubles from Tate Sweatt and Roman Donofro to lead off the fth inning and tie the game up. A two-out single by Corey Armstrong scored Donofro with the game-winning run. Mosley had a runner in scoring position in the sixth and seventh innings, but Champion and the Bulldogs wouldnt be denied as they kept the Dolphins off the scoreboard to claim the win. We won a big game on Tuesday night (beating Niceville in the semi nals) and these kids didnt get satis ed, Gillis said. Its going to be a tough row to hoe (in the playoffs). We are just happy to be in it, and we are going to give our best effort every day. Weve got a lot of real good players on this team. I tell them we dont have to be great every night, we just have to be good enough. Tonight, we hung in there and we are very fortunate to get a win.

By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW The Hub Citys proximity to Eglin Air Force Base has somewhat insulated the real estate market from the recent recession, according to Dino Sinopoli, a Re/Max Agency One Realtor and former Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce president. In general trends, because of the Air Force base being here, we didnt drop as much as other areas (in the south county) that were all second homes and condo markets, he said. We had real people, with real jobs, that werent losing their jobs. The arrival of 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) soldiers and Eglin 33rd Fighter Wing airmen, along with their families and support staff, was a boon to area home rentals and sales. At rst, local agents barely kept up with the demand for rental homes, which since has leveled off, Sinopoli said. When the Army rst came here, you could rent anything for any price. It was nice, he said. People were crawling over each other to get a rental. You put a rental on the market, and it would rent. This year, its not happening like that. Now, its a nice, even ow. Newcomers would frequently rent a home or a townhome while having a new house built, taking time to pick the exact neighborhood in which to live, he said. NEW BUYERS IN THE MARKET Two years ago, when the 7th Special Forces came in, Ive never sold so many brand new homes, Sinopoli said. They came down here (from North Carolina) with $1,000 deposits. They consecutively kept coming down and buying new homes. In addition to military families buying local houses, the economys recovery is encouraging once-skittish residents to make the investment. Its keeping our market very, very strong, Sinopoli said. Weve had a lot of investors. Ive had more cash buyers than I had before. People arent getting good returns in the bank, but theyre getting 10 to 14 percent returns on their property. Foreclosed and older houses can cost $40,000 to $80,000. The average range for a new house is $175,000 for 1,800-square-foot homes to $225,000 for four-bedroom, 2,200-square-foot homes. A three-year-old home in good condition sells for about $175,000. Military brings $5.2 billion to county yearly By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW The Air Force and Armys Northwest Florida presence has been an economic generator for Crestview and surrounding communities. The University of West Floridas Haas Center for Business Research and Economic Development estimates the average earnings per military-related job is $87,300, and the annual military economic impact to Okaloosa County is $5.2 billion with more than 58,800 local jobs. In Northwest Florida, military workers generate more than $4 billion in annual sales activity and consume $3.3 billion in goods. Defense annually brings capital investment of $495 million, according to a 2012 report from the Association of Defense Communities. The in ux of an estimated 6,000 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) troops and airmen of the Eglin 33rd Fighter Wing, support staff and family members helped shield Crestview and its housing market from the recent recession. (See Military presence helps spare housing market from recession, below.) ARMAMENT DEVELOPMENT Armament development, including creating the 2002 Massive Ordnance Air Burst bomb, commonly known as the mother of all bombs, remains an integral part of Eglin Air Force Bases mission. Eglin test support personnel, mostly civilian employees, run and analyze weapons trials by the U.S. Air Force and allied nations. Foreign allies routinely rotate in and out of Eglin for training on the F-35 ghter jet. Almost half the Department of Defenses spending in the state occurs in Northwest Florida, according to the Okaloosa County Economic Development Council. Even with civilian employee furloughs, which the Department of Defense said wont be as severe as anticipated, the average military salary is almost double the state average, the EDC said. MILITARY AND MUNICIPAL PARTNERSHIP With the Eglin reservation comprising almost half the county and the bases Military In uence Planning Area taking up almost two-thirds of the remaining half, community leaders mindful of the militarys economic contribution are careful to not infringe on its missions. HISTORY LESSON: MILITARY IN NORTHWEST FLORIDA The north countys eight-decade involvement with the military dates back to the 1930s and a Depression-era project that employed local workers to service Pensacola Naval Air Station planes landing in Crestview. The aircraft, stationed at Crestviews old American Legion Field, joined planes from Maxwell Field Station in Montgomery, Ala., in area exercises. The Maxwell planes landed at a Valparaiso air eld, according to Crestview: The Forkland, by Betty Curenton and Claudia Patten. The $2,000 allocated to improve and develop the Valparaiso eld and build hangars for the Maxwell planes marked the origin of Eglin Field, a U.S. Army Air Corps training post. World War IIs beginning in Europe accelerated Eglins importance and strengthened its relationship with the county seat. More than $1.25 million was spent, before Americas entry in the war, to enhance Eglins mission as an aerial gunnery school, the book states.

In February, the last month with available data, Okaloosa County had a 5.5 percent unemployment rate. That was down a half-percent from January and almost 1.5 percent from February 2012s 6.9 percent. The county surpassed the February 7.5 percent statewide unemployment rate and the national 8.1 percent, said Linda Sumblin, Workforce Development Boards executive director. Were optimistic, she said. We have the luxury of having one of the lowest unemployment rates in the state at this time. Only Monroe County, with 4.2 percent unemployment for February, had a lower rate, according to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. SEQUESTRATION STILL A THREAT A potential impediment to continued growth is sequestration, Sumblin said. However, the Department of Defense has lowered the number of possible furlough days for civilian employees, she said. A senior department of cial speaking on background said more than 700,000 of cials next month will receive notices of their 10 unpaid leave days expected in midto late June, according to the American Forces Press Service. Though sequestration wont apply to active-duty military members, it will affect civilian workers, including those employed in defense contractors companies. Were working with the defense contractors about how thats going to affect us, Sumblin said. Right now, we havent heard much from them, which were ecstatic about. In the last several months, Ive talked to several members who say, Ive gotten too busy. Im working seven days a week, and I have to start hiring somebody. Thats an encouraging thing that were hearing.

(The) airports proximity to the interstate, to rail transpor tation and highways, Mobile, Pensacola, Fort Rucker and the various regional military bases puts it in a perfect loca tion, said Derek Lott, a former Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce president, former chamber Airport Committee chairman and a private pilot. The countys foresight to buffer the airport against resi dential encroachment allows the facilitys industrial tenants to grow and new tenants to come in. L3 Crestview Aerospace, north Okaloosa Countys larg est private employer, BAE Sys tems, Qwest Air Parts, Capital Aviation and Sunshine Aero Flight Testing are among reg ular runway tenants. To lure more tenants, partic ularly those in aircraft mainte nance and modication elds, county airport staff and cham ber of commerce members ap pear at aviation trade shows. The National Business Avia tion Associations meeting, the nations premier general avia tion exposition, has generated promising leads, ofcials said. A pre-permitting program expedites the bureaucratic process for qualied tenants to begin building their facili ties, county Assistant Airports Director Tracy Stage said. It allows a company to come in and essentially begin construction on facilities in stead of waiting to obtain state and local permits, he said. It drastically reduces those time frames. Pensacola entrepreneur Dan Gilmore, the airports newest tenant, is rening rent al hangar construction plans by his company, RonDan CEW. He saw what the airport did, and the steps the airport took, and thats what encour aged him to build facilities on speculation, Stage said.AN EDGE ON COMPETITORS General aviation and indi vidual private pilots are served by Emerald Coast Aviation, the airports xed-base operator. The company soon will break ground on a planned $600,000, 5,600-square-foot terminal building. The airport has the latest instrument-guided landing technology, according to Lott. The full Instrument Land ing System is supplemented by GPS and high-frequency omni-directional radio range. The combination allows air craft to land in almost any weather. HISTORY LESSON: FROM AIRSTRIP TO ECONOMIC GENERATOR Crestview Bob Sikes Airport, one of three aviation facilities operated by Okaloosa County Airports, descends from the citys original Savage Field. That airport was little more than a rough east-west airstrip built in the 1920s on the 100-acre site of Savages turpentine still. It was near presentday Juke Hill and the Big Lots shop ping center, according to Crestview: The Forkland by Betty Curenton and Claudia Patten. In 1937, the Civil Aeronautics Author ity constructed Crestview Municipal Airport farther north, approximately at present-day Crestview High School. It mainly provided an emergency land ing strip for passenger planes between New Orleans and Jacksonville. Todays Bob Sikes Airport started as a service eld for Fairchild-Hiller, a company retrotting and modifying Korea and Vietnam War aircraft. Gen eral aviation services were added in 1964.

Okaloosa children bucking the trends By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Okaloosa County Health Department statistics under score what director Dr. Karen Chap man calls the major ongoing health issues in our community. Sixty-four percent of the countys population is overweight or obese, and almost 20 percent smoke. Tobacco use and obesity are large cost drivers of health care, Chapman said. The departments ndings indi cate locals surpass the state average in several unhealthy areas: 19.2 percent of the county pop ulation smokes, vs. 17.1 percent statewide. 13.6 percent of women smoke during pregnancy, vs. 6.9 percent statewide. 54.9 percent of adolescents were exposed to second-hand smoke in one week, vs. 47 percent statewide. Obesity is increasing, according to data compiled by Katie Cholcher, the health departments Community Health Improvement coordinator. In 2007, 22.4 percent of the adult population was obese. That gure had risen to 38.7 percent by 2010.A COMMUNITY HEAL TH PLAN To combat the problems, the health department is undertaking several initiatives under the Com munity Health Improvement Plan, Cholcher said. Three CHIP work groups address tobacco use, prevention and cessa tion, and promote physical activity and nutrition to battle obesity. Addi tionally, a group is studying methods of increasing health care access. The Mobilizing for Healthier Oka loosa initiative comprises govern ment, health care, education, busi ness, nonprot and citizen represen tatives who collaborate on the health improvement objectives. Building a healthier Okaloosa County began as a community-wide initiative with the goal of establish ing an ongoing process for identify ing and addressing health needs, the countys 2013-15 health improve ment plan states. STARTING OFF YOUNG On the upside, 61.1 percent of area adolescents receive adequate physical activity, according to Chol chers statistics. Okaloosa kids beat the statewide average of 59.4 percent who daily exercise, but the countys goal is for 85 percent of young people to get enough exercise. Theres more encouraging news: 88.7 percent of area middle school students and 87.5 percent of high school kids are at a healthy weight. County middle school kids are just about at the state average, while Okaloosa Countys high school ers surpass the state average of 85.7 percent. However, county health authori ties are tracking alarming substance abuse trends. 9.1 percent of middle school stu dents and 28 percent of high school kids have used tobacco in the past 30 days. 6 percent of middle schoolers and 17.5 percent of high school stu dents have smoked cigarettes in the past 30 days. For them, comprehensive health information is necessary, Cholchers report said. However, only 4.8 percent of Okaloosa County high school stu dents report receiving comprehensive tobacco-use prevention education, contrasted with the states 7.4 percent average, the report stated. Health trends that are going to impact our long-term health, such as tobacco use and physical obesity, are issues for our entire community, Chapman said. PUBLIC HEAL TH SERVICES State Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, has suggested requir ing people who use free public health services to invest in their own health care. Though the county health de partments Crestview ofce offers basic dental and pediatric care, one practitioner said the biggest prob lem is people failing to show up for By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Whether at north Okaloosa Countys hospital or at Physicians Plaza, the fourstory, health care here remains as personal and local as it was when brothers Dr. Justus O. and Dr. Olin Oliver Enzor opened the communitys rst hospital in 1926. Today, North Okaloosa Medi cal Center has evolved into a modern hospital complex featur ing innovative technologies found in a larger community, yet with personal care. Were caring for our neigh bors, NOMC chief executive of cer David Fuller said. A hospital like this in a community like ours is not like being in Pensacola or Tallahassee or Atlanta, where the chances of bumping into one of your patients in the grocery store is slim to none. The hospital evaluates new equipment and technologies as they become available, Fuller said. Though expense is a fac tor in acquiring equipment, even more important is having suf cient need for the devices. Were always looking at how we need to grow and what we need to expand to meet the communitys needs, Fuller said. You need to have a volume of procedures to keep your compe tency and quality level.NEW F ACILITIES AND SERVICES The two-story Patient Tower, which opened in 2011, allows north county treatment of diseas es and injuries that a few years ago required patients to travel to Fort Walton Beach, Pensacola or out of state. Its expanded Intensive Care Unit and accompanying Step Down Unit have enhanced emer gency care services. A heart catheterization laboratory, with twin labs anking a central con trol room, offers services that once required sending patients by ambulance to an out-of-town facility. The four-story provides rou tine X-rays, lab work, physi cal therapy and other outpa tient services through a facility NOMC shares with Sacred Heart Medical Center of Pensacola. Primary care clinics in Baker, Crestview and DeFuniak Springs provide similar services without the time and expense of hospital admission. The hospitals next goal is to attain national certication for its chest pain and stroke centers to offer primary stroke and primary cardiac intervention. We are moving to being the place that people think about when they have a cardiac issue, Fuller said. LINKING INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES On the technology side, NOMC wants to corral its sev eral computer systems into one interactive system that allows different departments and doc tors to share information within the facility and at doctors clin ics, Fuller said. The expectation is that our information systems will com municate with the physicians systems, he said. That will enable them and us to provide better and more comprehensive care for their patients. System integration will oc cur in phases, and that will take some time, administrators said. Weve completed the first wave, Fuller said. The next wave will be linking our out patient clinics that we offer. Likely, the third and final wave will be bringing the physician documentation into that format. Once we move them into the final phase, that record will be complete.

By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Some north Okaloosa County schools have reported increased student populations because of military presence. The 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) brought more than 2,200 personnel to Eglin Air Force Base in 2010. Almost 3,000 of the personnels children ages 5 to 18 attend north county schools, said Lt. Col. James Brownlee, a public affairs of cer with the group. Forty-eight percent of the Special Forces personnel have made the Hub City their home, particularly because of its affordable housing near base. Brownlee said the number of military personnel is expected to grow. With the coming of our Regional Support Element and other support elements, our increase may be as great as 500 more soldiers, who will most likely all be here by this September, he said. By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Crestview High School athletic director and head football coach Tim Hatten, a month in his job, is still in the initiation phase. Though he hasnt been here long enough to develop a clear vision for the Crestview football team and athletic program, he has broad ideas for the program. ESTABLISHING IDENTITY When I came in here and I interviewed, I talked about a program having an identity, he said. We havent established an identity yet, but we want to be able to do something that we are known for. We have one of the best bands in the state here. When you talk about bands, you talk about Crestview High School, and you have to talk about the Big Red Machine. We need to have something that mirrors that in football. Crestview Highs football program should be renowned for its discipline and polish, Hatten said. They need to understand what I expect and what I want as a head football coach out of them as football players, he said. It is going to take some time for us to gure that out between each other.

PHARMACY SCHOOL The Florida Agricultural and Mechanical Universitys Pharmacy School, in the Rural Diversity Healthcare Center that opened last August in downtown Crestview, features specialized labs and classrooms with synchronous distance-learning technology. Students can interact in real time with instructors and students from Tallahassees main campus. The American Council of Pharmaceutical Education recently accredited the school, which has 25 students and plans to add 39 more. Twenty-one of them are in their rst professional year, and four of them are in their fourth professional year, said Dr. Margareth Larose-Pierre, associate dean of academic affairs.

Military presence spikes student population MATTHEW BROWN | News Bulletin Crestview High School expects to enroll 600 freshmen next school year. The Bulldog student population has increased signi cantly since the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne)s arrival in Okaloosa County. Military in ux had no noticeable effect on Laurel Hill Schools population, principal Susan LowerySexton said. Our student population has been stable for the past seven years, she said. We usually have around 450 students. Lowery-Sexton said her school could facilitate growth, if it happens. About 80 students already attend LHS on waivers that allow students to attend a school outside their designated zone. Last fall, Laurel Hill became the countys rst school to offer an iPadbased curriculum. Our main interest is to increase the technology use in the school, Lowery-Sexton said. Its a great opportunity for kids to be prepared for an electronic society and gain those skills that make them competitive. BAKER SCHOOL Baker School, a K-12 institution, has received steady growth in elementary grade levels, with 635 kindergartners through fth-graders, according to administrators. I think the 7th Special Forces coming has had an impact. principal Thomas Shipp said. We had some subdivisions built locally that have attracted them. Finding room for the growth has caused concern. Right now, we have seven classes in portables, and we dont have any regular classroom space available, Shipp said. So if we have another 2 percent growth for next year, we are going to have to do some guring. An option is converting one of four computer labs into a classroom. We have a science lab that we use for elementary and middle school, and that may have to become a classroom, Shipp said. We hate to lose that, because that is something we worked hard to build up, which is ironic because as our numbers grow, we will need that computer lab more and more. Administrators believe the school district will help nd solutions for the over ow. I think the districts trying to look ahead and plan for that, so hopefully an action will be taken so that we can free up some space, Shipp said. Meanwhile, Bakers curriculum is expanding to include culinary arts, a welding class and a child care program in which students can earn a Child Development Associate credential. Crestview High School has seen incremental increases in student population since the military installments arrival, principal Bob Jones said. Before military installation, the school enrolled 450 to 500 incoming freshmen; it expects 600 for the 201314 school year, he said. Classrooms are at capacity, Jones said. If I have two more classes that we have to add, then we will have to have a teacher that is roving, meaning that (he or she) isnt going to be in the same classroom all day. Portable classrooms also are a possibility, he said. The school might add staffers to meet more than 1,800 students needs, Jones said. Academically, CHS might restart the Cambridge Advanced International Certi cate of Education program, which offers advanced courses and college credit. Were also looking at adding some additional technical and career courses for next year, including construction technology and cosmetology, Jones said. BOB JONES SUSAN LOWERYSEXTON TOM SHIPP CRESTVIEW HIGH SCHOOL LAUREL HILL SCHOOL What do you think about north Okaloosa County schools?

Recreational proposals could improve quality of life By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW If city leaders visions come to fruition, traveling sports teams will play tournaments while moms and dads send their children to swim-team practice before attending pottery or yoga classes in the same facility. Kids will whiz around a skate park next to a park that dogs can call their own, and a pedestrian and bicycle corridor will link downtown Crestview to Twin Hills Park. Each project has potential to see completion, and little, if any, taxpayer money is necessary. FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT CENTER The citys consideration of a family entertainment center passed through review by Northwest Florida State Colleges Institute of Retired Professionals last month. The idea had evolved from its origin as an athletic complex. Former Crestview City Council President Ben Iannucci III broached the idea of a sports center in 2011 after consulting with Sportsplex USA representatives. The Santee, Calif.based company operates several multiple-sports facilities as public-private partnerships. Sprawling complexes offer play of baseball, soccer and other sports in one facility. Iannucci saw Crestview as a likely stop on the tournament route between south Alabama and Panama City games. Funding for such a structure could come from a tourist development tax, or bed tax, on hotels overnight guests who are mostly out-of-town visitors. The tax could be as much as 3 cents per dollar, under state law. Soon, Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce Arts and Culture Committee Chairwoman Rae Schwartz suggested integrating art studios, classrooms, a Crestview Public Library branch and a gallery beside locker rooms, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, gymnasium and three sports elds. FACILITIES FOR DOGS AND SKATERS The community dog parks rising popularity has motivated area dog lovers to request a similar facility for Crestview. Councilwoman Robyn Helt and Public Works Director Wayne Steele have identi ed a location in Twin Hills Parks southwest corner already enclosed by fencing on three sides. Fencing the fourth side, installing water fountains, doggie toilet stations and other improvements could cost less than $20,000, Steele said. Funding could come from the Community Redevelopment District, which includes the park, Helt said. Funds are collected from businesses within the district as incremental taxes earmarked for improvements within the district. By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW In an era when competition has never been ercer in high school sports, sometimes, the quality of facilities can make the difference between winning and losing. From well maintained elds and gyms to weight rooms and locker rooms, Crestview High School and Baker and Laurel Hill schools coaching staffs frequently improve what they have to make the experience more enjoyable for players and fans. CRESTVIEW HIGH SCHOOL So far, Crestview athletic director and head football coach Tim Hatten, who was hired last month, said he is impressed with the Bulldogs venues. Hatten, who came to Crestview from Pearl River Community College in Mississippi and was Haines Citys head football coach before that, has visited numerous high school campuses in Mississippi and across Florida, and he said Crestviews facilities are among the best he has seen. We probably had 22 high schools in our recruiting district at Pearl River, and those schools ranged from 1A high schools to 6A high schools, with the top-end enrollment being right at 2,000 students, he said. Certainly, we would be in the top 5 percent in the state, from what Ive seen in recruiting over the last 11 years. And in my 14 years in Polk County, I would say our facilities are as good (as) or better than any of the 20-something schools in Polk County. The Bulldogs 3,400-squarefoot weight room is the football facilitys highlight, Hatten said. He praised Crestview baseball coach Tim Gillis and the Crestview softball program for their ball park maintenance. However, he said, there is always room for improvement. Everyone that is going to come to your facility is going to have an idea here and there about how you can spruce it up, he said. A little bit of labor here and there and we will make it even better. As a 6A school, Crestview has all the facilities necessary, but thats not the case for other north county schools. BAKER SCHOOL Baker athletic director and head football coach Matt Brunson is quick to express his gratitude for the Gators facilities. Doug Grif th Memorial Stadium, which seats between 2,000 and 2,500 fans, is the perfect size for a 1A school and more than serves its purpose. Brunson praised coaches and school maintenance staffers for the facilities upkeep. However, he pointed out Baker has obstacles other area schools lack. At Baker, we have a very unique situation because we are a K-12 (school), he said. We run a full middle school program with all of our middle school teams playing athletics. We have a full JV program and a full varsity program of basketball, volleyball, football, soccer and track. It handicaps us during, say, basketball season with only one gymnasium and we are splitting up between our middle school teams, boys and girls, our JV teams, boys and girls, and our varsity teams, boys and girls. Additionally, the school lacks a baseball eld and uses the community baseball and softball complex. The baseball eld down there is very nice, Brunson said. The thing ... is, its not on campus so our kids cant use it during the school day. And we dont have any dressing facilities down there. The school mostly needs dressing rooms for athletes and bathrooms for fans, he said. Additionally, space in the 1,400-square-foot eld house and weight room is getting tight, he said. We de nitely need more square footage in our weight room. Threethousand square feet would be adequate.

CONTINUITY VS. COMPLACENCY Fostering continuity is another factor in Hattens formula for success with some considerations. I think you have to establish continuity without developing complacency, he said. Complacency (in coaching) is what youve got to ght on the back end. Youve got to be just as energetic in year 14 as you were in year one. Thats part of staying with the program, keeping your nose to the ground, and letting the kids know what you expect. And doing that year in and year out. Though some of the Bulldog programs, such as track and baseball, have remained stable through the years, the softball program has its fourth coach in as many years. The team will never be successful until a coach stays for the long haul, Hatten said. I think we have a strong nucleus of coaches, but obviously, you dont want to have that kind of turnover in one position, he said. Continuity is always good because it helps the kids know what to expect. Having had a chance to watch our softball team play several games over the past two weeks, they are a very competitive group with some very, very good talent both seniors and underclassmen as well. Thats a very promising group, athleticwise, and we need to make sure we give them a good atmosphere for being successful. That strategy should work across the board, Hatten said. (If) you develop some tradition and some good habits, you end up molding these kids ... into great young men and women and great players. And when they graduate, they go off to college somewhere and whether they participate (in athletics) or not they go on and carry the values that you teach them. MORE RESPONSIBILITIES Hatten, as athletic director, oversees more than 20 sports, which he said dwarfs the six or seven sports his high school offered just more than 30 years ago. I think it makes it a little more dif cult, he said. You want to make sure you give attention to all of your sports. And the role I play, or I want to play, is to be an AD that helps programs. I dont want to be a regulator so much as I want to be someone that says, Hey, what do you need? What I can I do for you? And provide that ... the time, need, work or whatever. Thats the main thing you want to do when you try to manage all of these sports. Time budgeting is the key to handling a large program, Hatten said. I think its as much of a struggle for an administrator as it is for the AD because you have to cover all these sports, and there is something going on basically every night certainly every other night at the local high school and those are the events that we cover administratively, he said. Certainly, when you try to manage 22 sports, as opposed to six, there are different challenges you have to overcome. You have to manage your time. SUPPORTING COACHES VALUE Having skilled assistant football coaches and head coaches in other sports makes Hattens job easier, he said. You have to surround yourself with 10 or 11 guys helping you out as assistant coaches on the football side of it, and we have some great coaches in our other sports ... that do a great job in running their program, he said. They are very, very low-maintenance, and they take care of their own fundraising and they run their complete program ... That helps when youve got guys like (track coach) Ernie (Martin) that has been here a long time, (baseball) coach (Tim) Gillis has been here a long time, and coach Combest has been through so many things. Those kind of folks can help you out a great deal so you can provide attention to some (other) areas you need to so you can try to get a couple of wins out there to keep us around a couple of years. CATCHING UP With spring football starting May 1, Hatten said the team is trying to catch up with other Bulldog sports. I think the other sports are handling their images and their identities, he said, adding, I want to make sure we are all on the same page. From what Ive seen, we need to get our program up to snuff with some of the other programs, in terms of baseball, volleyball the band, softball and that kind of thing. Though the football program needs work, the players are doing their part, Hatten said. We are impressed with the way the kids are working, and the effort they are giving us, he said. HATTEN from page B4 As far as the niceness of our facilities and the upkeep job our coaches do, I would grade them high: an A. But as far as the feasibility and the square footage of our weight room facility and the lack of gym space for our teams, Id grade it very low, a D maybe.

By BRIAN HUGHES Arts and Entertainment Editor brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW When local arts organizations extol the virtues of visual and performing arts in the community, its easy to dismiss it as culture-vultures tooting their horns. However, when the Oka loosa County Economic Devel opment Council praised the arts communitys efforts to enhance the regions cultural life, commu nity leaders took notice. The Crestview Area Cham ber of Commerces 2012 estab lishment of an Arts and Culture Committee, along with increas ing outlets of creative expres sion, has ensured north county residents have cultural inu ence, which can mean improved quality of life. During a Florida League of Cities workshop last year, Arts and Culture Committee Chair person Rae Schwartz and for mer Crestview City Councilman Charles Baugh learned business es seeking a location or to relo cate look at the communitys liv ability, which includes shopping, schools, sports and the arts. Since its formation, the com mittee has worked to elevate the arts visibility, including having a presence at festivals and other community gatherings. It has welcomed local arts and cultural organizations into its fold and is nalizing plans to have regional artists exhibit at monthly cham ber of commerce breakfasts, gen erally attended by 200 or more business community leaders.THE COMMUNITY ARTS CENTER Through its outreach to the arts community, including of fering free exhibition space for artworks, the Crestview Pub lic Library has evolved into the communitys de facto arts cen ter. Bi-monthly rotating exhibits on the walls and in lobby display cases include local artists works and collections including vin tage lm posters and World War II artifacts from Baker Block Museum. The Music at the Library per formance series presents local musicians, while monthly music and poetry jams allow fans to exercise their artistic passions. Regular creative events include childrens crafting classes. Man ga art shows allow teens to ex press their creativity in the popu lar genre of Japanese comic book graphic art.NURTURING YOUNG ARTISTS Local schools fulll a vital role in identifying kids inherent cre ative gifts and nurturing these skills. From elementary through high school, instruction in visual and performing arts broadens young minds and, educators say, sharpens their skills in sub jects including mathematics and science. Northwood Elementary Schools recent conversion to an arts and sciences academy is a prime example. Its programs will prepare young artists for extend ed instruction at Davidson and Shoal River middle schools, from which they funnel to Crestview High Schools state and nation ally recognized choral and instru mental music, dramatic arts and visual arts programs. Spring and fall theatrical pro ductions and concerts by the 130-voice chorus and almost 300-piece Big Red Machine band demonstrate area students per forming arts capabilities. The visual arts departments annual spring art show at Crestview High School lls the school li brary for a week. The schools culinary arts program caters the opening reception. A PERFORMANCE PLACE Gigi Allen, whose husband Bob was, at the time, a Crestview City Councilman, formed the Friends of the Arts under the less fancy name of simply the piano com mittee. It would nd and pro cure, at no expense to Crestview taxpayers, a grand piano for War riors Hall, the auditorium in the then newly acquired Whitehurst Municipal Building. The piano committee shifted gears and established a fund to maintain the instrument, still at no cost to taxpayers. The com mittee chose as its new moniker the Friends of the Arts, indica tive of its broad scope of artistic interests, including the addition of a theatrical chair. The Friends mission has expanded beyond the piano to include enhancing the hall. Goals include securing funding for theatrical lighting and constructing a backstage area with dressing and green rooms. Sequestration certainly will have a ripple effect on the area economy, as civil ian workers will decease their discretionary spend ing, potentially affecting other businesses, Sumblin said.HOSPIT ALITY SEASON GEARS UP Though much of the hos pitality industry focuses on the countys south end, Crestview receives a boost because of its position as a gateway to tourist desti nations, with visitor traf c passing through town on Interstate 10 and State Road 85. This time of year, with the hospitality season, theres more hiring going on, Sumblin said. Were seeing a great increase from the positive tourist season last year. Crestview area hotels saw a marked increase in bookings as snowbirds and spring breakers discovered north county hotels were a better bargain and more likely to have last-minute rooms available than properties farther south. Proximity to Fort Walton Beach and other nearby bodies of water helps. People can stay in Crestview and still partici pate in a beach vacation, Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce incoming President Dennis Mitchell said.MOPPING UP THE OIL SPILL IMPACT Were anticipating an even better season this year as we recover from the unwelcome BP oil spill event, Sumblin said. Though Crestview is 30 miles from the clos est beach, the threat of oil from the April 2010 BP spill had local effects, she and Mitchell said. The advantage is clear, Mitchell said. We get all those folks coming through, and they go to all three counties (Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa). We see them a lot. We de pend on those beaches a great deal. All you need to do is look at just the threat of the BP oil coming near here, and business dropped noticeably. Rick Plante, Possum Ridge BBQs pit master, said trade at his north State Road 85 location slowed to a trickle during summer 2010. I call it the ricochet ef fect, Mitchell said. We didnt get the beach impact as hard as they did down south, but it certainly did af fect us, which proves that a healthy beach and a healthy beach economy (are) im portant to us here.NEW TRICKS FOR OLD DOGS The local economys recovery means less longterm unemployment in the area than elsewhere in the state, Sumblin said. To combat what longterm unemployment there was, JobsPlus and the Workforce Develop ment Board embarked on a retraining program. Programs included onthe-job training to prepare existing and new workers for new positions at area companies including BAE Systems and L3 Crestview Aerospace. New workers went through a crash course of intensive training in a mobile vocational school brought to Crestview through a grant. The vigor ous curriculum mirrored work conditions, with stu dents required to meet strict attendance and aca demic progress criteria. Toward the multi-week trainings end, students were integrated into the employers businesses, spending some of the work day side-by-side with expe rienced employees.CONSTRUCTION LOOKING UP Skill saws whines and hammers thuds again echo over local neighbor hoods as subdivisions rise in Crestview and Baker. They herald the local construction industrys revival. They are seeing a real incline of new building in our community, Sumblin said. That was one sector that was really downsized during the difcult time. We used to be an as sociation with almost 700 members, and were down to 300 right now, said Alan Baggett, executive vice president of the Building Industry Association for Okaloosa and Walton Coun ties. Its taken a toll. Some former members turned to other profes sions, while others down sized their businesses, often assuming the jobs of manager and laborer, Baggett said. A lot of your build ers are doing dual roles: theyre the ones swinging the hammer, he said. However, the local econ omys uptick has bright ened the building indus trys outlook. Crestview real estate agent Dino Sin opoli said planned devel opments that lay dormant during the recession have sprung to life. (See Military presence helps spare housing mar ket from recession, C1.) In the last several months, Ive talked to sev eral members who say, Ive gotten too busy. Im working seven days a week, and I have to start hiring somebody, Baggett said. Thats an encouraging thing that were hearing. An announcement that construction of what could be as many as 1,000 or more housing units at Hurlburt Field has been welcome news for area contractors, Baggett said. That is going to be an opportunity for people to nd some work, he said.A GOOD OUTLOOK Sumblin said her agency has been working with the county Economic Develop ment Council to provide workforce information for potential employers consid ering moving to or expand ing in Okaloosa County. Workforce Development also is working with educa tors as a liaison with local fast-growing, high-wage industries, including health care, information technol ogy and communications, and manufacturing. Were looking at schools training growth to guide them as to what kind of curriculum they can pro vide, not just postsecond ary but the K-through-12 schools, too, Sumblin said. We work very closely with the CHOICE pro gram, she said, referring to the Okaloosa County School District middle and high school industryguided vocational training program. We see things turning around, Sumblin said. Local business leaders agree. We in the chamber of commerce are expecting things here to start bucking the trend, Mitchell said. Were expecting things here will be better than the rest of nation.

SUBDIVISIONS BEING COMPLETED Economic improvements have re vived developments dormant during the recession. The Zachary Estates, Carnegie and Lake Silver Homes subdivisions off Lake Silver Road can be completed because of the military inux. Two-and-a-half years ago, Dug gan Pond in southeast Crestview had two homes completed, but now its almost nished off with 108 proper ties available, Sinopoli said. Fox Valley, near Foxwood Coun try Club in southwest Crestview, has been completed. Construction is booming north of U.S. Highway 90 in Liberty Oaks off Old Bethel Road. Well-priced homes move well in this market, Sinopoli said. Newhome prices have increased, but ex isting inventory homes, not so much so. Buyers are picking newer homes rather than a comparable used home because new is always better. If you have a used home in good condition and you have it priced well, you will sell it. If youre even a little overpriced, it wont sell. With the local housing markets uptick, there has been a membership spike in the Emerald Coast Board of Realtors, which represents real es tate agents from Pensacola to Pan ama City. Its membership once around 3,500 agents plummeted by more than a thousand when the recession struck, Sinopoli, a former board member, said. However, with the areas strong military presence, Crestview is re bounding faster than elsewhere in the state. Because of Eglin, we didnt drop as much, Sinopoli said. Tampa dropped 50 percent of its market from 07. We dropped maybe 25 per cent, at most. Some of those months were hard, but we pulled through.

If we ever get into repetitive traf c, such as a FedEx-type package delivery company, which I see our airport eventually having, it would be essential, Lott said. The airport hosts North Okaloosa Fire Districts main headquarters, and its two airport crash tenders are frequently on call, often hired to stand by during airport tenants ight-testing. M ILLION S IN IMPROVEMENT S In recent years, Okaloosa County has embarked on an $11 million infra structure upgrade to Bob Sikes Air port. Improvements include repav ing the runway, widening taxiways, installing runway lighting and sig nage, revamping the airports storm water drainage system and installing utilities for future tenants. Infrastructure improvements, funded exclusively by user fees and grants, pave the way literally for continued growth, ofcials say. Over the last few years, airport (staffers) have been very engaged with promoting the future develop ment of the airport, Stage said. In doing so, weve been able to secure a substantial amount of grant funding and construct storm water utilities and infrastructure to promote future aviation development of the airport. Any plane in the world can land at our airport, Airport Committee chairman Dino Sinopoli said. The airport accommodated the arrival of an Antonov An-124, the worlds third-largest aircraft, in Oc tober 2010. The plane delivered a number of Fort Rucker-bound heli copters before taking off at dawn the next morning. In addition to demonstrating the airports capabilities, the ight showed the county and local airport personnels adaptability, former County Airports Director Greg Don ovan said. Ofcials planned the giant air planes arrival, mapped its overnight position at L3 Crestview Aerospaces apron and planned its push back into takeoff position the next morning. A rental tug, or airport tractor, maneuvered the plane into position. Widening the taxiways, which oc curred after the Antonov roared into the morning sky on its return ight to Russia, has eliminated the need to rent a tug.HAMPERED AIRPORT ACCE SS Okaloosa County Airports and the Crestview Area Chamber of Com merce want the issue of lacking air port access addressed soon. From the south, airport trafc must meander from U.S. 90 through Shoffner City neighborhood residen tial streets, including Hare Street, a dirt road. To visit L3 Crestview Aerospace and east-side airport tenants, driv ers must use the two-lane Fairchild Road, which also goes through a resi dential neighborhood. Though paved between Highway 90 and Crestview Aerospace, south from Airport Road, Fairchild is a dirt road. The paved John Givens Road, on the airports west side, serves the airport and the countys Industrial Air Park from Airport Road. The city lacks direct access from the south, but the planned Foy Shaw Industrial Parkway a four-lane ac cess road facilitated by the airports land acquisition in 2011 should complete the link between airport property and Highway 90. Though the rst application for a grant to fund the roads construction was unsuccessful, airport staffers are eying other funding sources, in cluding grants, Stage said. Kay Rasmussen, the county Eco nomic Development Councils inter im president, has requested federal funding for Foy Shaw Parkway and paving Fairchild Roads dirt portion. P ROMI S ING FUTURE Recognitions, including winning the General Aviation Project of the Year for a new surfacing compound developed for the BAE Systems apron refurbishment, pique potential tenants interest. Thats the kind of stuff that gets our name out there, Stage said. Companies look at it and say, Wow, this place is perfect for our operation. The future of Bob Sikes looks extremely good. We put it in a posi tion to do nothing but grow. Honestly, everybody wins when that kind of stuff happens everybody from dry cleaners, to real estate agents, to businesses that support aviation.

AIRPORT from page B2 HISTORY from page B1WAR EXPANDS EGLINS ROLE In post-Pearl Harbor days, the Doolittle Raiders rehearsed at Eglin Field for the rst U.S. attack on the Japanese homeland. Their mission buoyed the nations spirits and fos tered regional pride in the local bases role. By then, Eglin armament experts were in the forma tive years of the bases mission, testing Americas armaments. Among early experiments in guided missile technology, they reverse-engineered a cap tured German V1 ying bomb and enhanced it with Yankee expertise. One of those early weapons hangs from the Air Force Arma ment Museums ceiling at Eglin Air Force Base. ECONOMIC IMPACT BEGINS Recognizing the elds personnel would have local effects, a downtown Crest view building boom began, as ve new brick business houses were constructed downtown before war came to America, according to the book. When Eglin soldiers and airmen received weekend leave, their sights frequent ly turned north to Crest view. Main Street watering holes, eateries and movie houses swarmed with young men in khaki every weekend. Those who cel ebrated too much became well acquainted with the Hilton Hotel, present-day Desis Restaurant, which rented cheap dormitory ac commodations to soldiers who missed the last bus back to Eglin Field. A local USO formed at the Crestview Womans Club House in 1942; mean while, enlisted men could dance into the evening with locals at the Community Recreation Center. Area residents donations fund ed the center. Crestview has joined eight regional municipali ties, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton counties, and Eglin Air Force Base in the Military Sustainability Part nership, which plans strate gies to enhance and support the militarys Northwest Florida mission. The Crestview City Council last month sent the state a revised com prehensive plan that, if ap proved, would adopt rec ommendations from the bases Small Area Studies report completed last fall. These include mitigating light pollution that can dis tract pilots night vision and implementing structure height restrictions within approaches to Duke Field. Limiting residential devel opment potentially close to aircraft noise in ight cor ridors also is a factor. TH E S OUND OF FREEDOM Visitors to Crestview sometimes inch when a C-130 Hercules lumbers overhead on nal approach to Duke Field some times so low that folks on the ground can wave to pilots. Just as the roar of Eg lins F-35 ghters often sur prise south county visitors, but not people who live there, north county resi dents are used to the fourengine turbo-prop planes. Its just the sound of freedom, they say. And for many, its also the sound of the regions economic engine. In Northwest Florida, military workers generate more than $4 billion in annual sales activity and consume $3.3 billion in goods. Defense annually brings capital investment of $495 million, according to a 2012 report from the Association of Defense Communities. HISTOR Y LESSON: HOUSING IN CRESTVIEW HOUSING from page B1BRIAN H UG H E S | News Bulletin A soldier checks out after shopping at the Crestview Wal-Mart. Service members and their families have direct impact on the local economy as they buy homes, shop in area stores and frequent local restaurants. BRIAN H UG H E S | News Bulletin Workers construct a house in the Liberty Oaks subdivision off Old Bethel Road in northwest Crestview. Hamner Doc Powell, a Pen sacola and Atlantic Railroad sta tion agent, built Crestviews rst house in the late 1800s. It stood near the downtown tracks, accord ing to Crestview: The Forkland, by Betty Curenton and Claudia Patten. The citys rst brick house, be longing to businessman William J. Rice, was erected in the 1920s and still stands on the corner of Pearl Street and Hickory Avenue. Dr. Roy Nakaiye, who purchased it in 2011, promised to maintain it as a historic architectural landmark. Downtown Crestview bears many legacies from its early days, including several historic homes and a diamond street layout that occasionally confuses newcomers until its original triangular blocks meet the newer districts square blocks north of First Avenue. Today, houses in new subdivi sions rise on curving streets that sometimes confuse visitors and public safety agencies. With developments popping up, the Crestview Fire Department relies on frequently updated GPS maps on tablets rather than a wall map of the community.

Accepted students can take collegiate classes ranging from honors English to Algebra II. They also can take a course that prepares them for college academics. Prospective students must meet certain educational cri teria, Principal Anthony Boyer said. We take in 60 collegiate 10th-graders ... who have a 3.0 GPA or higher and have re ceived passing scores on the college place ment tests, Boyer said. Fif teen 10th-grad ers falling just short of these requirements can enter the program upon selection from a lottery. Those students are placed on a wait ing list. Since the charter school opened in 2000, the number of enrolled students has grown from 125 in 2000 to 285 students in 2012, the school stated. Participation is slowly catch ing on in Crestview, adminis trators said. I have seen a larger num ber of applicants from the north end of the county, Boyer said. Out of 186 applicants for next year, 29 are from the countys north end; 128 are from the south end. The remaining 29 students are from outside the county. The school is among the states A+ high schools. Boyer gave much of the credit to the students. We have always set the bar high for our students, but they have always risen to the occa sion. Boyer said, adding that last years graduating class had an average 3.4 GPA.EMBRY-RIDDLE AERONAUTICAL UNIVERSITY Embry-Riddle University, 5210B S. Ferdon Blvd. in Crest view, offers curriculum on op eration, engineering, research, manufacturing, marketing and management of modern aircraft and supporting sys tems. The Crestview location has four classrooms in which students can earn an associ ate degree, bachelors degree or other certications. Online learning is available. The Crestview campus cur rently has 53 active (graduate and undergraduate) students and 17 more working through the admissions process, said Ashley McCallum, associate di rector of academic support, in an email. The university is afliated with the Okaloosa County School District, Bob Sikes Air port and regional airports and aeronautical clubs. Additionally, youth leaders, student and adult skateboard riders and parents frequently have approached city leaders about providing a safe skating environment. Meanwhile, com munity policing ofcers, includ ing former skater Sam Kim mons, have watched as Stillwell Avenues rolling hills become an impromptu skate site. The streets stormwater gully and concrete culvert overpasses provide challenges for skaters, while the steep incline allows them to build up impressive speeds. Steele and Kimmons have learned that a set of stairs tops the list of items skaters want, according to conversa tions with teen skaters at Crest view High School. Under the councils direc tion, Steele has begun gathering information to produce a formal proposal for both parks, which CRA money might fund.LINKING DOWNTOWN AND TWIN HILLS P ARK Providing a pedestrian and bicyclist link between down town Crestview and Twin Hills Park, in Helts vision, includes a safe, well-lit footpath from Main Street, under the Ferdon Boule vard overpass and into the parks southwest corner. Linking the downtown shopping and dining district with Twin Hills Parks recreational opportunities would maximize the most use of two existing city resources, she has said. Her idea includes histori cally inspired streetlamps, plant ers and benches along the foot and bike path. Helt has said she envisions parents strolling to Main Street to eat and shop while their chil dren play at Twin Hills Parks skate park or ball elds. Phar macy students at Florida A&M Universitys Rural Diversity Healthcare Center could take their lunch to the park to eat and study outdoors. During down town festivals, a pedestrian link to the parks parking also is ben ecial, she has said. Add picnic tables and shelters to southwest Twin Hills Parks underused portion, couple it with proposed skate and dog parks on the north side, and link it with downtowns resources, and we, I feel, have the potential to capitalize on the properties we currently have, Helt has said.

Building a winning team in a community hospital is re warding, Fuller said, because people who work there choose to do so. The people who are in a hos pital like ours make a conscious decision to work in a hospital like ours, he said. If you go to a big, big organization, people are spe cialists in one area. Our people serve a bigger need. There are a lot of misconcep tions about being in a community hospital. Its a much more colle gial atmosphere. Its a blessing. They back each other up to try not to put too much of a load on each other. Plenty of recruitment time is spent attracting specialists, Fuller said, adding staffers con stantly evaluate patients needs and expectations of growth and demand.THE FUTURE People think hospitals and health care providers are some how immune to the general swings of the economy. Beep! Wrong answer, Fuller said. Were watching whats happen ing in the federal government and sequestration. The federal government pays a huge amount of health care. There is some uncertainty surrounding the Patient Protec tion and Affordable Care Act that President Barack Obama signed in 2010, Fuller said. That being said, were con tinuously looking around to see what we can do to make things better for our patients, he said. One such method is offering robotic surgery. Weve got technology that were evaluating right now to see if it makes sense in our mar ket, Fuller said. They have technology right now where they can make one tiny incision and do bladder repair; that sort of procedure. In the end, Fuller said, the communitys hospital care boils down to locally taking care of lo cal folks. appointments. We get four or ve (cancel lations) a day, county health department support techni cian Adrienne Ferguson said. For some of our services, we went to same-day appoint ments because of that. A modest co-pay, even if its refundable, could remedy the situation, Gaetz has said. Cindy Hammonds, an ad ministrator with the Crest view Women, Infants and Children health program, said starting walk-in clinics has re duced no-shows. It kind of regulates itself, she said.L OC A L HEA LT H E FFORTS The Crestview Area Cham ber of Commerces Health and Wellness Committee ad dresses residents preventive health care and health assess ment needs through its an nual Community Health Fair, usually held in the fall. Several vendors offer health care screenings and provide education during the health fair at the Crestview Community Center, which typically draws hundreds of residents. Health awareness events also include the Baker Health Fair, presented at the commu nitys school near the start of the school year. The Baker Lions Club, which counts childrens health as an orga nizational goal, sponsors the program. Local doctors and com munity leaders sponsor the Crestview No Child Without Health Care Fair at Crestview High School. It facilitates free health screenings and pro vides information as kids head back to school. C R E STVI E WS OUTDOOR GYM One of our community planning groups is focusing on, How would we inven tory the recreational op portunities where county residents could go walking safely, where they could go to a health facility and walk a track or ride a bike? Chap man said. Such facilities exist at the city level. The Crestview Rec reation Departments inclu sion of exercise equipment along the half-mile walking, jogging and biking trail proved a popular addition to Twin Hills Park. On a chilly March morning, Crestview resident Marilyn Stephens was getting in a vig orous workout on the rowing machine. I like it out here, she said. Theres no trafc. Why get a gym membership when this is available for free? Staying active is important to Larry Caskey, who made his morning walks around the track part of his daily routine like brushing my teeth, he said. Stephens and Caskey said residents of all ages use the citys health facilities. Different times of day, youll see different people out here, Caskey said, add ing that college students, young mothers with infants in strollers, and folks in their 80s are among regulars he encounters. I even see military people in their uniforms walking the track before they go to work, Stephens said. Except in the most inclem ent weather, regulars gather at the park for exercise; some meet exercise buddies to walk the circuit. Fitness groups and tai chi clubs also gather in the parks green spaces. BRI A N H UG HE S | News Bulletin Retiree Larry Caskey enjoys his daily walk around the Twin Hills Park path. HEALTH from page B3 RECREATION from page B5 Crestview Forward BRI A N H UG HE S | News Bulletin North Okaloosa Medical Center is the north county and Crestview areas community hospital. Still, he said, as far as the niceness of our facilities and the upkeep job our coaches do, I would grade them high: an A he said. But as far as the feasibility and the square footage of our weight room facility and the lack of gym space for our teams, Id grade it very low, a D maybe. And as far as our baseball eld being displaced down the road and our guys not being able to walk out back and having a practice facility and a dressing room facility, Id grade that very low. But as far as us coaches making it work with what weve got and the upkeep of the facilities and it being what it is, I think its ne. So overall it would be a C plus or B minus.LAUREL HILL Laurel Hill School, Okaloosa Countys smallest public school with a high school athletic program, only elds teams in vol leyball, boys and girls basketball, baseball and softball, but facility maintenance is still a concern. The school takes pride in and frequently upgrades the facilities, Laurel Hill athletic director and head boys basketball coach Kent Zessin said. Any time we are able to get funding for athletic facilities, it is greatly appreciated, and we try to stretch that mon ey as far as we possibly can, he said. We have done some ... renovation or remodeling to our three athletic facilities over the last 10 years, starting with the softball eld, adding lights, and (as) recently as last year, adding two dugouts to that facility. As far as the baseball facility, it has been ... maybe eight years now that a new back stop was put in, a three-foot wall with the netting. Also, there was a renovation of the dugout, a new scoreboard, ineld grass and irrigation system that brought that facility up to par with everyone in the county. The Hoboes gym that is home to the vol leyball and basketball teams has received improvements in the last ve years as the school made the gym handicap-accessible, stripped and renished the court and up graded restroom facilities. Gym renovations resulted in 150 fewer seats then the initial 750 capacity, but it was necessary for the gym to be handicap-accessible. Going forward, Zessin would like to see the locker rooms unchanged since the gym was built in 1969 get a makeover. The wish list would be to actually add dressing room facilities for visiting teams, both boys and girls as well as home team, so we would have four dressing rooms, he said. That way, we could kind of take care of our own and the visitors when they come here. They would have something nice also and the physical education classes could use that ... It would take some planning, but it could be done.

By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW A vocational preparatory class at Richbourg Exceptional Student Education School is preparing select high school students for post-graduation employment. Tuesday at Uncle Bills Family Restaurant, Jesse Dobbs scurried around the dining room busing and cleaning tables under the schoolto-work program. In the kitchen, Grace Stockton stacked dishes for cleaning; nearby, her classmate Jacob Luttrell helped restaurant staffer Jo Gironda make coleslaw. The point of the program is to give students employable skills so they dont sit at home doing nothing when they can do something productive, Richbourg job coach Jeff Bowen said. Students receive school credit as they learn on the job, Bowen said. Depending on ability, they may receive training in more involved tasks. Richbourg students also gain basic work experience at the Crestview Wal-Mart, pick up range balls at Foxwood Country Club and work at Foster Families of Americas downtown thrift store. Now that they have been here, they have work skills, Bowen said. That keeps the brain engaged. They have a good chance of getting hired. Restaurant owner Bill White said he is glad to offer students an opportunity to learn work experience and is pleased with their performance. We know its tough for kids like them to go out and nd a job, he said.By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW As most downtown merchants can attest, theres one thing missing there after 5 p.m.: people. However, if Crestview attracts a $30,000 Community Planning Technical Assistance Grant from the state Department of Economic Development, empty nighttime sidewalks might echo with downtown residents footsteps. The Crestview City Council at its Monday meeting unanimously approved submitting an application for the grant. The money would fund downtown rezoning, redrawing the citys comprehensive plan and creating a mixed commercial and residential Future Land Use district. Currently, downtown residential properties are limited to single-dwelling units for commercial property owners or managers. Consequently, former residential units above most Main Street businesses remain vacant. Meanwhile, downtown residential opportunities could bene t students and staff at Florida A&M Universitys pharmacy school, growth management consultant Jack Dorman said. Its our opinion and this has been proven successfully if you keep your rst-level store fronts and businesses, but allow secondand thirdoor residential uses, you then have a population base downtown that live there, he said. Downtown residents would drive up demand for services like dry cleaners, more restaurants, shopping and entertainment venues. The result could increase the citys tax base and provide more opportunities for all residents, Dorman said. Any money the city spends on projects under the grant is reimbursable, he said. The city does not have to reimburse the state for the grant.BRIAN HUGHES | News BulletinDowntown streets, which lack residences, typically are quiet after 5 p.m.$30K grant could boost downtown economy The citys proposal for a $30,000 Community Planning Technical Assistance Grant from the state Department of Economic Development involves these components: Create a zoning district and regulations tailored for downtown Create a Future Land Use category in the citys comprehensive plan to be imposed on the downtown district Prepare language to include a new vehicle and pedestrian circulation plan in the comprehensive plan.

The council on Monday unanimously approved North Ferdon Developments request for out-ofcity water and sewer service for the restaurants planned location next door and south of the Sonic near Crestview High School. Recently, a proposed Dollar General for the Roberts Trailer Park area across U.S. Highway 90 from Valley Road received the Local Planning Agencys approval for outof-city water service. Both projects must accept annexation into the city of Crestview to receive city water and sewer services. Owners have signed a Municipal Services Agreement with the city, guaranteeing they will annex with Crestview, according to city planner Eric Davis. The city Technical Review Committee approved the restaurants plans in October 2012, with a stipulation to address drainage concerns. The Garden Street area behind the proposed restaurant has ooded in severe rains. The Local Planning Agency approved the project and forwarded it to the city council for nal approval. There was no indication of when either project would be completed, nor how many jobs they would provide.Page A2 Saturday, April 27, 2013FROM STAFF REPORTSCRESTVIEW The public is invited to celebrate the life of a man who died in a Tuesday head-on collision in Destin.

PROPOSED TACO BELL By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW It took nine months and countless hours of research, but for the rst time in 15 years, city ofcials and staff members can glance at a map and see Crestviews boundaries. The City Council on Monday unanimously accepted the updated map and approved having future updates incorporated into the document within 30 days of approved changes, such as annexations. Teresa Gaillard, the Administrative Services Departments mapping analyst and city planner, spearheaded the project to produce an accurate city map. She went back and researched all the ordinances and everything, City Clerk Betsy Roy said. Now, going forward, shell be able to update the map without going through the council. Now it can be updated whenever theres an annexation. City attorney Jerry Miller expressed concern for the lack of an updated city map when he started his position in spring 2012. On Monday, he called failure to update the old map a ministerial de ciency. Knowing exactly where your city limits are and having them described in a uniform way is critical to so many jurisdictional issues, he said. He called the previous map, which lacked updates on annexations, comprehensive plan amendments and rezoning, an absolute heyday for any (legal) challenges. From 2004 to 2010, the city has more than doubled in acreage, but updates to the previous map had not kept pace with the citys growth, Roy said. Land surveyor Kermit George produced Crestviews last comprehensive map in 1998; it was sporadically but not comprehensively updated, Roy stated in an agenda brief.

The girls, wielding rakes, hoes and shovels, were under the supervision of two dads, two moms and Joel Carden of Crestview landscaping company 7Cs Services. Charlee Becker of the Crestview Kiwanis Club assisted them. Kiwanis members donated a blue birdbath and an oval polished stone marker dedicating the buttery garden to Sandy Hook victims.

By MATTHEW BROWN682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com Editors Note: This is the third in a series on north Okaloosa County Teachers of the Year. CRESTVIEW Tulsa Moore is quite a multi-tasker: She teaches computer-based curriculum at Shoal River Middle School and is the schools media specialist, the schools webmaster, and tackles other duties as needed. I do whatever the school needs me to, she said. Moore spends one period in the schools media center, cataloging or organizing bookshelves. What I enjoy the most is talking to students about books and helping them pick out a book they would enjoy, she said. Moore teaches several levels of IT education. The way we divide our classes here is year one, year two and year three, she said. The rst year is an introduction to computers. The second year helps students earn high school certi cations in learning to use Microsoft programs like Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The third year involves web design, which students can use for high school credit. Recently, Moore, an Okaloosa County teacher since 1993, was named the schools Teacher of the Year. I would have been just as happy for any other teacher (if he or she won) because I know how hard everybody works, she said. She previously earned the title in the 1998-99 school year, when she taught science at Richbourg Middle School. She is ultra professional, Principal Paul Whiddon said. She is such a dynamic teacher. Several students said they enjoy her class. She will work with students individually if they need help, Isaac Suendermann, 13, said. Overall, she is just very caring. Hannah Nelson, 14, said she has found the IT classes to be bene cial. She has given me a lot more opportunities ... I have learned how to help people in the community with their computers and their electronics just by attending her class, Nelson said. Sachit Sharma, 13, enjoyed Moores class so much that he became her teachers aide. Mrs. Moore is a wonderful teacher, Sharma said. She does a wonderful job explaining to students what works best for them.Special to the News BulletinCRESTVIEW Kelli Correas fifth-grade classroom at Antioch Elementary School read for 114,520 minutes, a little more than 1,908 hours, during Pizza Huts Book It! program.

SPORTS www.crestviewbulletin.comSaturday, April 27, 2013 APage 10SectionBy RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Roman Donofro supplied the pitching and Tate Sweatt brought the power Tuesday as Crestview High Schools baseball team faced Niceville in the District 2-6A tournament semi nals. Donofro went the distance on the mound, throwing a ve-hit shutout and striking out 11 Eagle batters. Sweatt had a pair of tworun doubles as the Bulldogs rolled to a 6-0 win, earning a spot in the state playoffs. What a game, Bulldog coach Tim Gillis said. We battled all night. Roman was absolutely outstanding. Tate Sweatt had some huge hits with four RBIs. And again, we had contributions from everywhere in the lineup. The games rst three innings provided a pitching battle between Donofro and Niceville starter Nick Junger. Donofro limited the Eagles (195) to two hits and a pair of walks through the rst three frames. Junger was slightly better through three as he gave up just one walk and one hit. Niceville threatened in the third inning when Andrew Engle led with a single and Donofro walked the next batter, Tyler Kinard. The momentum swung Crestviews way when Donofro struck out Elliot Cary for the innings rst out. It compounded when Bulldog catcher Austin Armstrong threw Engle out trying to steal third for the innings second out. Crestview, the tournaments No. 3 seed, rode the momentum into the top of the fourth inning. Seth Thomason and Armstrong led off the fourth by drawing backto-back walks from Junger. Justin Rebholz, the innings third Bulldog batter, dropped down a perfect bunt for a base hit to load the bases. A Junger wild pitch allowed Thomason to score. Sweatt then drove a Junger fastball into rightcenter eld to score Drew Graham, who ran for Armstrong, and Rebholz. The Bulldogs (20-5) put the game out of reach with three more runs in the fth. Tyler Henderson led off the inning with a single. Corey Armstrong was next and drew a walk. Thomason took a two-strike pitch from Junger to right eld, scoring Henderson. Sweatt doubled down the third base line with two out to score Corey Armstrong and Thomason for a pair of insurance runs. Sweatt said it was probably the best game of his high school career at the plate. After drilling a fastball for his rst double, he turned on a Junger curveball for his second double. Donofro struck out the side in the Niceville fth inning. The Eagles threatened in the sixth inning as they loaded the bases on a pair of walks and a base hit. Donofro got out of the jam by striking out pinch hitter Zack Shield. Engle walked to lead off the Niceville seventh, but three y ball outs to the out eld sealed the Bulldogs win. It feels better than any other feeling Ive ever had, Donofro said. This was our goal (to make the playoffs) from the beginning (of the season). We knew we had a chance this year and we are getting it done. There really are no words for how it feels to beat Niceville three times in the same season. When they beat us in the preseason, I had no clue what was going to be in store for us. Sweatt, like Donofro, struggled to nd the words to describe what the win meant to him. Its real big, Ive been thinking about it for weeks now and Ive been praying about it. It just feels real good. Rebholz topped the Bulldogs with three hits. Sweatt and Henderson each had two hits.Donofro, Sweatt lead Bulldogs to semifinal win By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Davis Champion lived up to his last name Thursday night. Crestview High Schools senior pitcher went the distance on the mound, and Dakota Dean had a pair of hits and scored a run as the Bulldogs beat Mosley 3-2 to claim the District 2-6A baseball title. The district title was the second in three years for the Bulldogs, who won the District 2-5A championship in 2011. Crestview (21-5) will host Tate at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Class 6A region quarter nals. It feels great to get our second championship in three years, Dean said, especially since Im a senior. Champion earned the win the hard way, scattering 11 Dolphin hits to go along with just four strikeouts. But Champion made Mosley batters work to reach base, as he didnt allow a walk. This is the greatest feeling ever, Champion said. I was ready for it. I was ready to take the ball. This was four years in the making. This team has just bonded completely together. Its the greatest team out there now. Crestview coach Tim Gillis couldnt say enough good things about of Champions effort. He was just awesome, Gillis said. Every pitch was working for him. I cant say enough for the way he stepped up and got the job done. The Bulldog defense helped the cause with a pair of double plays. Crestview also came up with a big play at the plate in the second inning when Mosleys Connor Green was thrown out trying to score from second base on a base hit by Jordan Larry. Bulldog right elder Justin Rebholz made a perfect throw to cutoff man Seth Thomason. Thomason then red a strike to catcher Austin Armstrong for the out. The Dolphins (24-3), the states No. 1 Class 6A team, looked as if they were going to make short work of things with four-consecutive one-out hits in the rst inning. But Mosley got one run out of the threat, as the inning ended on the rst double play. The Bulldogs tied things up in the third inning as Dean tripled and scored on a passed ball. Mosley strung together three more hits good for another run in the bottom of the fourth inning, but another double play snuffed out the threat. Crestview got back-to-back doubles from Tate Sweatt and Roman Donofro to lead off the fth inning and tie the game up. A two-out single by Corey Armstrong scored Donofro with the game-winning run. Mosley had a runner in scoring position in the sixth and seventh innings, but Champion and the Bulldogs wouldnt be denied as they kept the Dolphins off the scoreboard to claim the win. We won a big game on Tuesday night (beating Niceville in the semi nals) and these kids didnt get satis ed, Gillis said. Its going to be a tough row to hoe (in the playoffs). We are just happy to be in it, and we are going to give our best effort every day. Weve got a lot of real good players on this team. I tell them we dont have to be great every night, we just have to be good enough. Tonight, we hung in there and we are very fortunate to get a win.Heart of a Champion NICK TOMECEK | Daily NewsCrestview High Schools Roman Donofro pitches against Niceville on Tuesday.

By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW The Hub Citys proximity to Eglin Air Force Base has somewhat insulated the real estate market from the recent recession, according to Dino Sinopoli, a Re/Max Agency One Realtor and former Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce president. In general trends, because of the Air Force base being here, we didnt drop as much as other areas (in the south county) that were all second homes and condo markets, he said. We had real people, with real jobs, that werent losing their jobs. The arrival of 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) soldiers and Eglin 33rd Fighter Wing airmen, along with their families and support staff, was a boon to area home rentals and sales. At rst, local agents barely kept up with the demand for rental homes, which since has leveled off, Sinopoli said. When the Army rst came here, you could rent anything for any price. It was nice, he said. People were crawling over each other to get a rental. You put a rental on the market, and it would rent. This year, its not happening like that. Now, its a nice, even ow. Newcomers would frequently rent a home or a townhome while having a new house built, taking time to pick the exact neighborhood in which to live, he said.NEW BUYERS IN THE MARKETTwo years ago, when the 7th Special Forces came in, Ive never sold so many brand new homes, Sinopoli said. They came down here (from North Carolina) with $1,000 deposits. They consecutively kept coming down and buying new homes. In addition to military families buying local houses, the economys recovery is encouraging once-skittish residents to make the investment. Its keeping our market very, very strong, Sinopoli said. Weve had a lot of investors. Ive had more cash buyers than I had before. People arent getting good returns in the bank, but theyre getting 10 to 14 percent returns on their property. Foreclosed and older houses can cost $40,000 to $80,000. The average range for a new house is $175,000 for 1,800-square-foot homes to $225,000 for four-bedroom, 2,200-square-foot homes. A three-year-old home in good condition sells for about $175,000. Military brings $5.2 billion to county yearlyBy BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW The Air Force and Armys Northwest Florida presence has been an economic generator for Crestview and surrounding communities. The University of West Floridas Haas Center for Business Research and Economic Development estimates the average earnings per military-related job is $87,300, and the annual military economic impact to Okaloosa County is $5.2 billion with more than 58,800 local jobs. In Northwest Florida, military workers generate more than $4 billion in annual sales activity and consume $3.3 billion in goods. Defense annually brings capital investment of $495 million, according to a 2012 report from the Association of Defense Communities. The in ux of an estimated 6,000 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) troops and airmen of the Eglin 33rd Fighter Wing, support staff and family members helped shield Crestview and its housing market from the recent recession. (See Military presence helps spare housing market from recession, below.)ARMAMENT DEVELOPMENTArmament development, including creating the 2002 Massive Ordnance Air Burst bomb, commonly known as the mother of all bombs, remains an integral part of Eglin Air Force Bases mission. Eglin test support personnel, mostly civilian employees, run and analyze weapons trials by the U.S. Air Force and allied nations. Foreign allies routinely rotate in and out of Eglin for training on the F-35 ghter jet. Almost half the Department of Defenses spending in the state occurs in Northwest Florida, according to the Okaloosa County Economic Development Council. Even with civilian employee furloughs, which the Department of Defense said wont be as severe as anticipated, the average military salary is almost double the state average, the EDC said.MILITARY AND MUNICIPAL PARTNERSHIPWith the Eglin reservation comprising almost half the county and the bases Military In uence Planning Area taking up almost two-thirds of the remaining half, community leaders mindful of the militarys economic contribution are careful to not infringe on its missions. HISTORY LESSON: MILITARY IN NORTHWEST FLORIDAThe north countys eight-decade involvement with the military dates back to the 1930s and a Depression-era project that employed local workers to service Pensacola Naval Air Station planes landing in Crestview. The aircraft, stationed at Crestviews old American Legion Field, joined planes from Maxwell Field Station in Montgomery, Ala., in area exercises. The Maxwell planes landed at a Valparaiso air eld, according to Crestview: The Forkland, by Betty Curenton and Claudia Patten. The $2,000 allocated to improve and develop the Valparaiso eld and build hangars for the Maxwell planes marked the origin of Eglin Field, a U.S. Army Air Corps training post. World War IIs beginning in Europe accelerated Eglins importance and strengthened its relationship with the county seat. More than $1.25 million was spent, before Americas entry in the war, to enhance Eglins mission as an aerial gunnery school, the book states.

In February, the last month with available data, Okaloosa County had a 5.5 percent unemployment rate. That was down a half-percent from January and almost 1.5 percent from February 2012s 6.9 percent. The county surpassed the February 7.5 percent statewide unemployment rate and the national 8.1 percent, said Linda Sumblin, Workforce Development Boards executive director. Were optimistic, she said. We have the luxury of having one of the lowest unemployment rates in the state at this time. Only Monroe County, with 4.2 percent unemployment for February, had a lower rate, according to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.SEQUESTRATION STILL A THREATA potential impediment to continued growth is sequestration, Sumblin said. However, the Department of Defense has lowered the number of possible furlough days for civilian employees, she said. A senior department of cial speaking on background said more than 700,000 of cials next month will receive notices of their 10 unpaid leave days expected in midto late June, according to the American Forces Press Service. Though sequestration wont apply to active-duty military members, it will affect civilian workers, including those employed in defense contractors companies. Were working with the defense contractors about how thats going to affect us, Sumblin said. Right now, we havent heard much from them, which were ecstatic about.In the last several months, Ive talked to several members who say, Ive gotten too busy.

By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Location is the key to Bob Sikes Airports lure, according to economic development experts. (The) airports proximity to the interstate, to rail transportation and highways, Mobile, Pensacola, Fort Rucker and the various regional military bases puts it in a perfect location, said Derek Lott, a former Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce president, former chamber Airport Committee chairman and a private pilot. The countys foresight to buffer the airport against residential encroachment allows the facilitys industrial tenants to grow and new tenants to come in. L3 Crestview Aerospace, north Okaloosa Countys largest private employer, BAE Systems, Qwest Air Parts, Capital Aviation and Sunshine Aero Flight Testing are among regular runway tenants. To lure more tenants, particularly those in aircraft maintenance and modication elds, county airport staff and chamber of commerce members appear at aviation trade shows. The National Business Aviation Associations meeting, the nations premier general aviation exposition, has generated promising leads, ofcials said. A pre-permitting program expedites the bureaucratic process for qualied tenants to begin building their facilities, county Assistant Airports Director Tracy Stage said. It allows a company to come in and essentially begin construction on facilities instead of waiting to obtain state and local permits, he said. It drastically reduces those time frames. Pensacola entrepreneur Dan Gilmore, the airports newest tenant, is rening rental hangar construction plans by his company, RonDan CEW. He saw what the airport did, and the steps the airport took, and thats what encouraged him to build facilities on speculation, Stage said.AN eEDGeE ON cCOMPetitETITOrsRSGeneral aviation and individual private pilots are served by Emerald Coast Aviation, the airports xed-base operator. The company soon will break ground on a planned $600,000, 5,600-square-foot terminal building. The airport has the latest instrument-guided landing technology, according to Lott. The full Instrument Landing System is supplemented by GPS and high-frequency omni-directional radio range. The combination allows aircraft to land in almost any weather. HISTOORY LESSONON: FROM OM AIRSTRIPP TOO ECONOMONOMIC GGENNERATOORCrestview Bob Sikes Airport, one of three aviation facilities operated by Okaloosa County Airports, descends from the citys original Savage Field. That airport was little more than a rough east-west airstrip built in the 1920s on the 100-acre site of Savages turpentine still. It was near presentday Juke Hill and the Big Lots shopping center, according to Crestview: The Forkland by Betty Curenton and Claudia Patten. In 1937, the Civil Aeronautics Authority constructed Crestview Municipal Airport farther north, approximately at present-day Crestview High School. It mainly provided an emergency landing strip for passenger planes between New Orleans and Jacksonville. Todays Bob Sikes Airport started as a service eld for Fairchild-Hiller, a company retrotting and modifying Korea and Vietnam War aircraft. General aviation services were added in 1964.

Okaloosa children bucking the trendsBy BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Okaloosa County Health Department statistics underscore what director Dr. Karen Chapman calls the major ongoing health issues in our community. Sixty-four percent of the countys population is overweight or obese, and almost 20 percent smoke. Tobacco use and obesity are large cost drivers of health care, Chapman said. The departments ndings indicate locals surpass the state average in several unhealthy areas: 19.2 percent of the county population smokes, vs. 17.1 percent statewide. 13.6 percent of women smoke during pregnancy, vs. 6.9 percent statewide. 54.9 percent of adolescents were exposed to second-hand smoke in one week, vs. 47 percent statewide. Obesity is increasing, according to data compiled by Katie Cholcher, the health departments Community Health Improvement coordinator. In 2007, 22.4 percent of the adult population was obese. That gure had risen to 38.7 percent by 2010.A cCOMMUNitITY HeaEALt TH PLaANTo combat the problems, the health department is undertaking several initiatives under the Community Health Improvement Plan, Cholcher said. Three CHIP work groups address tobacco use, prevention and cessation, and promote physical activity and nutrition to battle obesity. Additionally, a group is studying methods of increasing health care access. The Mobilizing for Healthier Okaloosa initiative comprises government, health care, education, business, nonprot and citizen representatives who collaborate on the health improvement objectives. Building a healthier Okaloosa County began as a community-wide initiative with the goal of establishing an ongoing process for identifying and addressing health needs, the countys 2013-15 health improvement plan states. StartiTARTING OFF YOUNGOn the upside, 61.1 percent of area adolescents receive adequate physical activity, according to Cholchers statistics. Okaloosa kids beat the statewide average of 59.4 percent who daily exercise, but the countys goal is for 85 percent of young people to get enough exercise. Theres more encouraging news: 88.7 percent of area middle school students and 87.5 percent of high school kids are at a healthy weight. County middle school kids are just about at the state average, while Okaloosa Countys high schoolers surpass the state average of 85.7 percent. However, county health authorities are tracking alarming substance abuse trends. 9.1 percent of middle school students and 28 percent of high school kids have used tobacco in the past 30 days. 6 percent of middle schoolers and 17.5 percent of high school students have smoked cigarettes in the past 30 days. For them, comprehensive health information is necessary, Cholchers report said. However, only 4.8 percent of Okaloosa County high school students report receiving comprehensive tobacco-use prevention education, contrasted with the states 7.4 percent average, the report stated. Health trends that are going to impact our long-term health, such as tobacco use and physical obesity, are issues for our entire community, Chapman said. PPUBLicIC HeaEALt TH servicesSERVICESState Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, has suggested requiring people who use free public health services to invest in their own health care.

Today, North Okaloosa Medical Center has evolved into a modern hospital complex featuring innovative technologies found in a larger community, yet with personal care. Were caring for our neighbors, NOMC chief executive ofcer David Fuller said. A hospital like this in a community like ours is not like being in Pensacola or Tallahassee or Atlanta, where the chances of bumping into one of your patients in the grocery store is slim to none. The hospital evaluates new equipment and technologies as they become available, Fuller said. Though expense is a factor in acquiring equipment, even more important is having sufcient need for the devices. Were always looking at how we need to grow and what we need to expand to meet the communitys needs, Fuller said. You need to have a volume of procedures to keep your competency and quality level.NewNEW Faci ACILitiesITIES aAND servicesSERVICESThe two-story Patient Tower, which opened in 2011, allows north county treatment of diseases and injuries that a few years ago required patients to travel to Fort Walton Beach, Pensacola or out of state. Its expanded Intensive Care Unit and accompanying Step Down Unit have enhanced emergency care services. A heart catheterization laboratory, with twin labs anking a central control room, offers services that once required sending patients by ambulance to an out-of-town facility. The four-story provides routine X-rays, lab work, physical therapy and other outpatient services through a facility NOMC shares with Sacred Heart Medical Center of Pensacola. Primary care clinics in Baker, Crestview and DeFuniak Springs provide similar services without the time and expense of hospital admission. The hospitals next goal is to attain national certication for its chest pain and stroke centers to offer primary stroke and primary cardiac intervention. We are moving to being the place that people think about when they have a cardiac issue, Fuller said. LiLINKiING iINFOrRMatiATION tec TECHNOLOGiesIESOn the technology side, NOMC wants to corral its several computer systems into one interactive system that allows different departments and doctors to share information within the facility and at doctors clinics, Fuller said. The expectation is that our information systems will communicate with the physicians systems, he said. That will enable them and us to provide better and more comprehensive care for their patients. System integration will occur in phases, and that will take some time, administrators said. Weve completed the first wave, Fuller said. The next wave will be linking our outpatient clinics that we offer. Likely, the third and final wave will be bringing the physician documentation into that format. Once we move them into the final phase, that record will be complete.

The 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) brought more than 2,200 personnel to Eglin Air Force Base in 2010. Almost 3,000 of the personnels children ages 5 to 18 attend north county schools, said Lt. Col. James Brownlee, a public affairs of cer with the group. Forty-eight percent of the Special Forces personnel have made the Hub City their home, particularly because of its affordable housing near base. Brownlee said the number of military personnel is expected to grow. With the coming of our Regional Support Element and other support elements, our increase may be as great as 500 more soldiers, who will most likely all be here by this September, he said.

We havent established an identity yet, but we want to be able to do something that we are known for. We have one of the best bands in the state here. When you talk about bands, you talk about Crestview High School, and you have to talk about the Big Red Machine. We need to have something that mirrors that in football. Crestview Highs football program should be renowned for its discipline and polish, Hatten said.

Military presence spikes student populationMATTHEW BROWN | News BulletinCrestview High School expects to enroll 600 freshmen next school year. The Bulldog student population has increased signi cantly since the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne)s arrival in Okaloosa County.Military in ux had no noticeable effect on Laurel Hill Schools population, principal Susan LowerySexton said. Our student population has been stable for the past seven years, she said. We usually have around 450 students. Lowery-Sexton said her school could facilitate growth, if it happens. About 80 students already attend LHS on waivers that allow students to attend a school outside their designated zone. Last fall, Laurel Hill became the countys rst school to offer an iPadbased curriculum. Our main interest is to increase the technology use in the school, Lowery-Sexton said. Its a great opportunity for kids to be prepared for an electronic society and gain those skills that make them competitive. BAKER SCHOOLBaker School, a K-12 institution, has received steady growth in elementary grade levels, with 635 kindergartners through fth-graders, according to administrators. I think the 7th Special Forces coming has had an impact. principal Thomas Shipp said. We had some subdivisions built locally that have attracted them. Finding room for the growth has caused concern. Right now, we have seven classes in portables, and we dont have any regular classroom space available, Shipp said. So if we have another 2 percent growth for next year, we are going to have to do some guring. An option is converting one of four computer labs into a classroom. We have a science lab that we use for elementary and middle school, and that may have to become a classroom, Shipp said. We hate to lose that, because that is something we worked hard to build up, which is ironic because as our numbers grow, we will need that computer lab more and more. Administrators believe the school district will help nd solutions for the over ow. I think the districts trying to look ahead and plan for that, so hopefully an action will be taken so that we can free up some space, Shipp said. Meanwhile, Bakers curriculum is expanding to include culinary arts, a welding class and a child care program in which students can earn a Child Development Associate credential. Crestview High School has seen incremental increases in student population since the military installments arrival, principal Bob Jones said. Before military installation, the school enrolled 450 to 500 incoming freshmen; it expects 600 for the 201314 school year, he said. Classrooms are at capacity, Jones said. If I have two more classes that we have to add, then we will have to have a teacher that is roving, meaning that (he or she) isnt going to be in the same classroom all day. Portable classrooms also are a possibility, he said. The school might add staffers to meet more than 1,800 students needs, Jones said. Academically, CHS might restart the Cambridge Advanced International Certi cate of Education program, which offers advanced courses and college credit. Were also looking at adding some additional technical and career courses for next year, including construction technology and cosmetology, Jones said.

Recreational proposals could improve quality of lifeBy BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW If city leaders visions come to fruition, traveling sports teams will play tournaments while moms and dads send their children to swim-team practice before attending pottery or yoga classes in the same facility. Kids will whiz around a skate park next to a park that dogs can call their own, and a pedestrian and bicycle corridor will link downtown Crestview to Twin Hills Park. Each project has potential to see completion, and little, if any, taxpayer money is necessary.FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT CENTERThe citys consideration of a family entertainment center passed through review by Northwest Florida State Colleges Institute of Retired Professionals last month. The idea had evolved from its origin as an athletic complex. Former Crestview City Council President Ben Iannucci III broached the idea of a sports center in 2011 after consulting with Sportsplex USA representatives. The Santee, Calif.based company operates several multiple-sports facilities as public-private partnerships. Sprawling complexes offer play of baseball, soccer and other sports in one facility. Iannucci saw Crestview as a likely stop on the tournament route between south Alabama and Panama City games. Funding for such a structure could come from a tourist development tax, or bed tax, on hotels overnight guests who are mostly out-of-town visitors. The tax could be as much as 3 cents per dollar, under state law. Soon, Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce Arts and Culture Committee Chairwoman Rae Schwartz suggested integrating art studios, classrooms, a Crestview Public Library branch and a gallery beside locker rooms, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, gymnasium and three sports elds.FACILITIES FOR DOGS AND SKATERSThe community dog parks rising popularity has motivated area dog lovers to request a similar facility for Crestview. Councilwoman Robyn Helt and Public Works Director Wayne Steele have identi ed a location in Twin Hills Parks southwest corner already enclosed by fencing on three sides. Fencing the fourth side, installing water fountains, doggie toilet stations and other improvements could cost less than $20,000, Steele said. Funding could come from the Community Redevelopment District, which includes the park, Helt said. Funds are collected from businesses within the district as incremental taxes earmarked for improvements within the district.By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW In an era when competition has never been ercer in high school sports, sometimes, the quality of facilities can make the difference between winning and losing. From well maintained elds and gyms to weight rooms and locker rooms, Crestview High School and Baker and Laurel Hill schools coaching staffs frequently improve what they have to make the experience more enjoyable for players and fans.CRESTVIEW HIGH SCHOOLSo far, Crestview athletic director and head football coach Tim Hatten, who was hired last month, said he is impressed with the Bulldogs venues. Hatten, who came to Crestview from Pearl River Community College in Mississippi and was Haines Citys head football coach before that, has visited numerous high school campuses in Mississippi and across Florida, and he said Crestviews facilities are among the best he has seen. We probably had 22 high schools in our recruiting district at Pearl River, and those schools ranged from 1A high schools to 6A high schools, with the top-end enrollment being right at 2,000 students, he said. Certainly, we would be in the top 5 percent in the state, from what Ive seen in recruiting over the last 11 years. And in my 14 years in Polk County, I would say our facilities are as good (as) or better than any of the 20-something schools in Polk County. The Bulldogs 3,400-squarefoot weight room is the football facilitys highlight, Hatten said. He praised Crestview baseball coach Tim Gillis and the Crestview softball program for their ball park maintenance. However, he said, there is always room for improvement. Everyone that is going to come to your facility is going to have an idea here and there about how you can spruce it up, he said. A little bit of labor here and there and we will make it even better. As a 6A school, Crestview has all the facilities necessary, but thats not the case for other north county schools.BAKER SCHOOLBaker athletic director and head football coach Matt Brunson is quick to express his gratitude for the Gators facilities. Doug Grif th Memorial Stadium, which seats between 2,000 and 2,500 fans, is the perfect size for a 1A school and more than serves its purpose. Brunson praised coaches and school maintenance staffers for the facilities upkeep. However, he pointed out Baker has obstacles other area schools lack. At Baker, we have a very unique situation because we are a K-12 (school), he said. We run a full middle school program with all of our middle school teams playing athletics. We have a full JV program and a full varsity program of basketball, volleyball, football, soccer and track. It handicaps us during, say, basketball season with only one gymnasium and we are splitting up between our middle school teams, boys and girls, our JV teams, boys and girls, and our varsity teams, boys and girls. Additionally, the school lacks a baseball eld and uses the community baseball and softball complex. The baseball eld down there is very nice, Brunson said. The thing ... is, its not on campus so our kids cant use it during the school day. And we dont have any dressing facilities down there. The school mostly needs dressing rooms for athletes and bathrooms for fans, he said. Additionally, space in the 1,400-square-foot eld house and weight room is getting tight, he said. We de nitely need more square footage in our weight room. Threethousand square feet would be adequate.

COMPLACENCYFostering continuity is another factor in Hattens formula for success with some considerations. I think you have to establish continuity without developing complacency, he said. Complacency (in coaching) is what youve got to ght on the back end. Youve got to be just as energetic in year 14 as you were in year one. Thats part of staying with the program, keeping your nose to the ground, and letting the kids know what you expect. And doing that year in and year out. Though some of the Bulldog programs, such as track and baseball, have remained stable through the years, the softball program has its fourth coach in as many years. The team will never be successful until a coach stays for the long haul, Hatten said. I think we have a strong nucleus of coaches, but obviously, you dont want to have that kind of turnover in one position, he said. Continuity is always good because it helps the kids know what to expect. Having had a chance to watch our softball team play several games over the past two weeks, they are a very competitive group with some very, very good talent both seniors and underclassmen as well. Thats a very promising group, athleticwise, and we need to make sure we give them a good atmosphere for being successful. That strategy should work across the board, Hatten said. (If) you develop some tradition and some good habits, you end up molding these kids ... into great young men and women and great players. And when they graduate, they go off to college somewhere and whether they participate (in athletics) or not they go on and carry the values that you teach them.MORE RESPONSIBILITIESHatten, as athletic director, oversees more than 20 sports, which he said dwarfs the six or seven sports his high school offered just more than 30 years ago. I think it makes it a little more dif cult, he said. You want to make sure you give attention to all of your sports. And the role I play, or I want to play, is to be an AD that helps programs. I dont want to be a regulator so much as I want to be someone that says, Hey, what do you need? What I can I do for you? And provide that ... the time, need, work or whatever. Thats the main thing you want to do when you try to manage all of these sports. Time budgeting is the key to handling a large program, Hatten said. I think its as much of a struggle for an administrator as it is for the AD because you have to cover all these sports, and there is something going on basically every night certainly every other night at the local high school and those are the events that we cover administratively, he said. Certainly, when you try to manage 22 sports, as opposed to six, there are different challenges you have to overcome. You have to manage your time. SUPPORTING COACHES VALUEHaving skilled assistant football coaches and head coaches in other sports makes Hattens job easier, he said. You have to surround yourself with 10 or 11 guys helping you out as assistant coaches on the football side of it, and we have some great coaches in our other sports ... that do a great job in running their program, he said. They are very, very low-maintenance, and they take care of their own fundraising and they run their complete program ... That helps when youve got guys like (track coach) Ernie (Martin) that has been here a long time, (baseball) coach (Tim) Gillis has been here a long time, and coach Combest has been through so many things. Those kind of folks can help you out a great deal so you can provide attention to some (other) areas you need to so you can try to get a couple of wins out there to keep us around a couple of years.CATCHING UPWith spring football starting May 1, Hatten said the team is trying to catch up with other Bulldog sports. I think the other sports are handling their images and their identities, he said, adding, I want to make sure we are all on the same page. From what Ive seen, we need to get our program up to snuff with some of the other programs, in terms of baseball, volleyball the band, softball and that kind of thing. Though the football program needs work, the players are doing their part, Hatten said. We are impressed with the way the kids are working, and the effort they are giving us, he said. HATTEN from page B4 As far as the niceness of our facilities and the upkeep job our coaches do, I would grade them high: an A. But as far as the feasibility and the square footage of our weight room facility and the lack of gym space for our teams, Id grade it very low, a D maybe.Matt Brunson Baker athletic director and football coach See RECREATION B8 Athletic directors assess facilitiesPHOTOS BY RANDY DICKSON | News BulletinArea coaches said their schools athletics facilities are largely suf cient but sometimes come up a bit short.

By BRIAN HUGHES Arts and Entertainment Editor brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW When local arts organizations extol the virtues of visual and performing arts in the community, its easy to dismiss it as culture-vultures tooting their horns. However, when the Okaloosa County Economic Development Council praised the arts communitys efforts to enhance the regions cultural life, community leaders took notice. The Crestview Area Chamber of Commerces 2012 establishment of an Arts and Culture Committee, along with increasing outlets of creative expression, has ensured north county residents have cultural inuence, which can mean improved quality of life. During a Florida League of Cities workshop last year, Arts and Culture Committee Chairperson Rae Schwartz and former Crestview City Councilman Charles Baugh learned businesses seeking a location or to relocate look at the communitys livability, which includes shopping, schools, sports and the arts. Since its formation, the committee has worked to elevate the arts visibility, including having a presence at festivals and other community gatherings. It has welcomed local arts and cultural organizations into its fold and is nalizing plans to have regional artists exhibit at monthly chamber of commerce breakfasts, generally attended by 200 or more business community leaders.THeE cCOMMUNitITY ArtsRTS ceCENterTERThrough its outreach to the arts community, including offering free exhibition space for artworks, the Crestview Public Library has evolved into the communitys de facto arts center. Bi-monthly rotating exhibits on the walls and in lobby display cases include local artists works and collections including vintage lm posters and World War II artifacts from Baker Block Museum. The Music at the Library performance series presents local musicians, while monthly music and poetry jams allow fans to exercise their artistic passions. Regular creative events include childrens crafting classes. Manga art shows allow teens to express their creativity in the popular genre of Japanese comic book graphic art.NNUrtRTUriRING YOUNG ArtistsRTISTSLocal schools fulll a vital role in identifying kids inherent creative gifts and nurturing these skills. From elementary through high school, instruction in visual and performing arts broadens young minds and, educators say, sharpens their skills in subjects including mathematics and science. Northwood Elementary Schools recent conversion to an arts and sciences academy is a prime example. Its programs will prepare young artists for extended instruction at Davidson and Shoal River middle schools, from which they funnel to Crestview High Schools state and nationally recognized choral and instrumental music, dramatic arts and visual arts programs. Spring and fall theatrical productions and concerts by the 130-voice chorus and almost 300-piece Big Red Machine band demonstrate area students performing arts capabilities. The visual arts departments annual spring art show at Crestview High School lls the school library for a week. The schools culinary arts program caters the opening reception. AA PerERFOrRMANceCE PLAceCEGigi Allen, whose husband Bob was, at the time, a Crestview City Councilman, formed the Friends of the Arts under the less fancy name of simply the piano committee. It would nd and procure, at no expense to Crestview taxpayers, a grand piano for Warriors Hall, the auditorium in the then newly acquired Whitehurst Municipal Building. The piano committee shifted gears and established a fund to maintain the instrument, still at no cost to taxpayers. The committee chose as its new moniker the Friends of the Arts, indicative of its broad scope of artistic interests, including the addition of a theatrical chair. The Friends mission has expanded beyond the piano to include enhancing the hall. Goals include securing funding for theatrical lighting and constructing a backstage area with dressing and green rooms. Sequestration certainly will have a ripple effect on the area economy, as civilian workers will decease their discretionary spending, potentially affecting other businesses, Sumblin said.HHOsSPitIT ALitITY seSEAsSON Ge EArsRS UPThough much of the hospitality industry focuses on the countys south end, Crestview receives a boost because of its position as a gateway to tourist destinations, with visitor trafc passing through town on Interstate 10 and State Road 85. This time of year, with the hospitality season, theres more hiring going on, Sumblin said. Were seeing a great increase from the positive tourist season last year. Crestview area hotels saw a marked increase in bookings as snowbirds and spring breakers discovered north county hotels were a better bargain and more likely to have last-minute rooms available than properties farther south. Proximity to Fort Walton Beach and other nearby bodies of water helps. People can stay in Crestview and still participate in a beach vacation, Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce incoming President Dennis Mitchell said.MMOPPiING UP t T HeE OiIL sSPiILL iIMPActCTWere anticipating an even better season this year as we recover from the unwelcome BP oil spill event, Sumblin said. Though Crestview is 30 miles from the closest beach, the threat of oil from the April 2010 BP spill had local effects, she and Mitchell said. The advantage is clear, Mitchell said. We get all those folks coming through, and they go to all three counties (Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa). We see them a lot. We depend on those beaches a great deal. All you need to do is look at just the threat of the BP oil coming near here, and business dropped noticeably. Rick Plante, Possum Ridge BBQs pit master, said trade at his north State Road 85 location slowed to a trickle during summer 2010. I call it the ricochet effect, Mitchell said. We didnt get the beach impact as hard as they did down south, but it certainly did affect us, which proves that a healthy beach and a healthy beach economy (are) important to us here.NewNEW tricTRICKsS FOrR OLD DOGsSThe local economys recovery means less longterm unemployment in the area than elsewhere in the state, Sumblin said. To combat what longterm unemployment there was, JobsPlus and the Workforce Development Board embarked on a retraining program. Programs included onthe-job training to prepare existing and new workers for new positions at area companies including BAE Systems and L3 Crestview Aerospace. New workers went through a crash course of intensive training in a mobile vocational school brought to Crestview through a grant. The vigorous curriculum mirrored work conditions, with students required to meet strict attendance and academic progress criteria. Toward the multi-week trainings end, students were integrated into the employers businesses, spending some of the workday side-by-side with experienced employees.CONstrSTRUctiCTION LOOKiING UPSkill saws whines and hammers thuds again echo over local neighborhoods as subdivisions rise in Crestview and Baker. They herald the local construction industrys revival. They are seeing a real incline of new building in our community, Sumblin said. That was one sector that was really downsized during the difcult time. We used to be an association with almost 700 members, and were down to 300 right now, said Alan Baggett, executive vice president of the Building Industry Association for Okaloosa and Walton Counties. Its taken a toll. Some former members turned to other professions, while others downsized their businesses, often assuming the jobs of manager and laborer, Baggett said. A lot of your builders are doing dual roles: theyre the ones swinging the hammer, he said. However, the local economys uptick has brightened the building industrys outlook. Crestview real estate agent Dino Sinopoli said planned developments that lay dormant during the recession have sprung to life. (See Military presence helps spare housing market from recession, C1.) In the last several months, Ive talked to several members who say, Ive gotten too busy. Im working seven days a week, and I have to start hiring somebody, Baggett said. Thats an encouraging thing that were hearing. An announcement that construction of what could be as many as 1,000 or more housing units at Hurlburt Field has been welcome news for area contractors, Baggett said. That is going to be an opportunity for people to nd some work, he said.AA GOOD OUtTLOOKSumblin said her agency has been working with the county Economic Development Council to provide workforce information for potential employers considering moving to or expanding in Okaloosa County. Workforce Development also is working with educators as a liaison with local fast-growing, high-wage industries, including health care, information technology and communications, and manufacturing. Were looking at schools training growth to guide them as to what kind of curriculum they can provide, not just postsecondary but the K-through-12 schools, too, Sumblin said. We work very closely with the CHOICE program, she said, referring to the Okaloosa County School District middle and high school industryguided vocational training program. We see things turning around, Sumblin said. Local business leaders agree. We in the chamber of commerce are expecting things here to start bucking the trend, Mitchell said. Were expecting things here will be better than the rest of nation.

SUBDIVIsSIONsS BEING COMPLETEDEconomic improvements have revived developments dormant during the recession. The Zachary Estates, Carnegie and Lake Silver Homes subdivisions off Lake Silver Road can be completed because of the military inux. Two-and-a-half years ago, Duggan Pond in southeast Crestview had two homes completed, but now its almost nished off with 108 properties available, Sinopoli said. Fox Valley, near Foxwood Country Club in southwest Crestview, has been completed. Construction is booming north of U.S. Highway 90 in Liberty Oaks off Old Bethel Road. Well-priced homes move well in this market, Sinopoli said. Newhome prices have increased, but existing inventory homes, not so much so. Buyers are picking newer homes rather than a comparable used home because new is always better. If you have a used home in good condition and you have it priced well, you will sell it. If youre even a little overpriced, it wont sell. With the local housing markets uptick, there has been a membership spike in the Emerald Coast Board of Realtors, which represents real estate agents from Pensacola to Panama City. Its membership once around 3,500 agents plummeted by more than a thousand when the recession struck, Sinopoli, a former board member, said. However, with the areas strong military presence, Crestview is rebounding faster than elsewhere in the state. Because of Eglin, we didnt drop as much, Sinopoli said. Tampa dropped 50 percent of its market from 07. We dropped maybe 25 percent, at most. Some of those months were hard, but we pulled through.

If we ever get into repetitive trafc, such as a FedEx-type package delivery company, which I see our airport eventually having, it would be essential, Lott said. The airport hosts North Okaloosa Fire Districts main headquarters, and its two airport crash tenders are frequently on call, often hired to stand by during airport tenants ight-testing. MM ILLIONs S IN IMPROVEMENTs S In recent years, Okaloosa County has embarked on an $11 million infrastructure upgrade to Bob Sikes Airport. Improvements include repaving the runway, widening taxiways, installing runway lighting and signage, revamping the airports stormwater drainage system and installing utilities for future tenants. Infrastructure improvements, funded exclusively by user fees and grants, pave the way literally for continued growth, ofcials say. Over the last few years, airport (staffers) have been very engaged with promoting the future development of the airport, Stage said. In doing so, weve been able to secure a substantial amount of grant funding and construct storm water utilities and infrastructure to promote future aviation development of the airport. Any plane in the world can land at our airport, Airport Committee chairman Dino Sinopoli said. The airport accommodated the arrival of an Antonov An-124, the worlds third-largest aircraft, in October 2010. The plane delivered a number of Fort Rucker-bound helicopters before taking off at dawn the next morning. In addition to demonstrating the airports capabilities, the ight showed the county and local airport personnels adaptability, former County Airports Director Greg Donovan said. Ofcials planned the giant airplanes arrival, mapped its overnight position at L3 Crestview Aerospaces apron and planned its push back into takeoff position the next morning. A rental tug, or airport tractor, maneuvered the plane into position. Widening the taxiways, which occurred after the Antonov roared into the morning sky on its return ight to Russia, has eliminated the need to rent a tug.HAMPERED AIRPORT ACCEss SSOkaloosa County Airports and the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce want the issue of lacking airport access addressed soon. From the south, airport trafc must meander from U.S. 90 through Shoffner City neighborhood residential streets, including Hare Street, a dirt road. To visit L3 Crestview Aerospace and east-side airport tenants, drivers must use the two-lane Fairchild Road, which also goes through a residential neighborhood. Though paved between Highway 90 and Crestview Aerospace, south from Airport Road, Fairchild is a dirt road. The paved John Givens Road, on the airports west side, serves the airport and the countys Industrial Air Park from Airport Road. The city lacks direct access from the south, but the planned Foy Shaw Industrial Parkway a four-lane access road facilitated by the airports land acquisition in 2011 should complete the link between airport property and Highway 90. Though the rst application for a grant to fund the roads construction was unsuccessful, airport staffers are eying other funding sources, including grants, Stage said. Kay Rasmussen, the county Economic Development Councils interim president, has requested federal funding for Foy Shaw Parkway and paving Fairchild Roads dirt portion. PP ROMIs S ING FUTURERecognitions, including winning the General Aviation Project of the Year for a new surfacing compound developed for the BAE Systems apron refurbishment, pique potential tenants interest. Thats the kind of stuff that gets our name out there, Stage said. Companies look at it and say, Wow, this place is perfect for our operation. The future of Bob Sikes looks extremely good. We put it in a position to do nothing but grow. Honestly, everybody wins when that kind of stuff happens everybody from dry cleaners, to real estate agents, to businesses that support aviation. BRIANBRIAN HUG UG HE E S | News BulletinRetired passenger jets wait in front of Qwest Air Parts Crestview hangar for dismantling. AIRPORT from page B2 HISTORY from page B1WAR EXPANDsS EEGLINsS ROLEIn post-Pearl Harbor days, the Doolittle Raiders rehearsed at Eglin Field for the rst U.S. attack on the Japanese homeland. Their mission buoyed the nations spirits and fostered regional pride in the local bases role. By then, Eglin armament experts were in the formative years of the bases mission, testing Americas armaments. Among early experiments in guided missile technology, they reverse-engineered a captured German V1 ying bomb and enhanced it with Yankee expertise. One of those early weapons hangs from the Air Force Armament Museums ceiling at Eglin Air Force Base. EECONOMIC IMPACT BEGINsSRecognizing the elds personnel would have local effects, a downtown Crestview building boom began, as ve new brick business houses were constructed downtown before war came to America, according to the book. When Eglin soldiers and airmen received weekend leave, their sights frequently turned north to Crestview. Main Street watering holes, eateries and movie houses swarmed with young men in khaki every weekend. Those who celebrated too much became well acquainted with the Hilton Hotel, present-day Desis Restaurant, which rented cheap dormitory accommodations to soldiers who missed the last bus back to Eglin Field. A local USO formed at the Crestview Womans Club House in 1942; meanwhile, enlisted men could dance into the evening with locals at the Community Recreation Center. Area residents donations funded the center. Crestview has joined eight regional municipalities, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton counties, and Eglin Air Force Base in the Military Sustainability Partnership, which plans strategies to enhance and support the militarys Northwest Florida mission. The Crestview City Council last month sent the state a revised comprehensive plan that, if approved, would adopt recommendations from the bases Small Area Studies report completed last fall. These include mitigating light pollution that can distract pilots night vision and implementing structure height restrictions within approaches to Duke Field. Limiting residential development potentially close to aircraft noise in ight corridors also is a factor. ThTH E s S OUND OF FREEDOMVisitors to Crestview sometimes inch when a C-130 Hercules lumbers overhead on nal approach to Duke Field sometimes so low that folks on the ground can wave to pilots. Just as the roar of Eglins F-35 ghters often surprise south county visitors, but not people who live there, north county residents are used to the fourengine turbo-prop planes. Its just the sound of freedom, they say. And for many, its also the sound of the regions economic engine. In Northwest Florida, military workers generate more than $4 billion in annual sales activity and consume $3.3 billion in goods. Defense annually brings capital investment of $495 million, according to a 2012 report from the Association of Defense Communities.

Accepted students can take collegiate classes ranging from honors English to Algebra II. They also can take a course that prepares them for college academics. Prospective students must meet certain educational criteria, Principal Anthony Boyer said. We take in 60 collegiate 10th-graders ... who have a 3.0 GPA or higher and have received passing scores on the college placement tests, Boyer said. Fifteen 10th-graders falling just short of these requirements can enter the program upon selection from a lottery. Those students are placed on a waiting list. Since the charter school opened in 2000, the number of enrolled students has grown from 125 in 2000 to 285 students in 2012, the school stated. Participation is slowly catching on in Crestview, administrators said. I have seen a larger number of applicants from the north end of the county, Boyer said. Out of 186 applicants for next year, 29 are from the countys north end; 128 are from the south end. The remaining 29 students are from outside the county. The school is among the states A+ high schools. Boyer gave much of the credit to the students. We have always set the bar high for our students, but they have always risen to the occasion. Boyer said, adding that last years graduating class had an average 3.4 GPA.EMBRY-RRIDDLeE AeERONaAUTICaAL U UNIVeERSITYEmbry-Riddle University, 5210B S. Ferdon Blvd. in Crestview, offers curriculum on operation, engineering, research, manufacturing, marketing and management of modern aircraft and supporting systems. The Crestview location has four classrooms in which students can earn an associate degree, bachelors degree or other certications. Online learning is available. The Crestview campus currently has 53 active (graduate and undergraduate) students and 17 more working through the admissions process, said Ashley McCallum, associate director of academic support, in an email. The university is afliated with the Okaloosa County School District, Bob Sikes Airport and regional airports and aeronautical clubs. Additionally, youth leaders, student and adult skateboard riders and parents frequently have approached city leaders about providing a safe skating environment. Meanwhile, community policing ofcers, including former skater Sam Kimmons, have watched as Stillwell Avenues rolling hills become an impromptu skate site. The streets stormwater gully and concrete culvert overpasses provide challenges for skaters, while the steep incline allows them to build up impressive speeds. Steele and Kimmons have learned that a set of stairs tops the list of items skaters want, according to conversations with teen skaters at Crestview High School. Under the councils direction, Steele has begun gathering information to produce a formal proposal for both parks, which CRA money might fund.LLINKING DOWNTOWN aAND TTWIN HILLS Pa ARKProviding a pedestrian and bicyclist link between downtown Crestview and Twin Hills Park, in Helts vision, includes a safe, well-lit footpath from Main Street, under the Ferdon Boulevard overpass and into the parks southwest corner. Linking the downtown shopping and dining district with Twin Hills Parks recreational opportunities would maximize the most use of two existing city resources, she has said. Her idea includes historically inspired streetlamps, planters and benches along the foot and bike path. Helt has said she envisions parents strolling to Main Street to eat and shop while their children play at Twin Hills Parks skate park or ball elds. Pharmacy students at Florida A&M Universitys Rural Diversity Healthcare Center could take their lunch to the park to eat and study outdoors. During downtown festivals, a pedestrian link to the parks parking also is benecial, she has said. Add picnic tables and shelters to southwest Twin Hills Parks underused portion, couple it with proposed skate and dog parks on the north side, and link it with downtowns resources, and we, I feel, have the potential to capitalize on the properties we currently have, Helt has said.

We take a ton of time to identify the right type of players to be part of the medical staff we put together, he said. Building a winning team in a community hospital is rewarding, Fuller said, because people who work there choose to do so. The people who are in a hospital like ours make a conscious decision to work in a hospital like ours, he said. If you go to a big, big organization, people are specialists in one area. Our people serve a bigger need. There are a lot of misconceptions about being in a community hospital. Its a much more collegial atmosphere. Its a blessing. They back each other up to try not to put too much of a load on each other. Plenty of recruitment time is spent attracting specialists, Fuller said, adding staffers constantly evaluate patients needs and expectations of growth and demand.TheTHE FUTUReEPeople think hospitals and health care providers are somehow immune to the general swings of the economy. Beep! Wrong answer, Fuller said. Were watching whats happening in the federal government and sequestration. The federal government pays a huge amount of health care. There is some uncertainty surrounding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that President Barack Obama signed in 2010, Fuller said. That being said, were continuously looking around to see what we can do to make things better for our patients, he said. One such method is offering robotic surgery. Weve got technology that were evaluating right now to see if it makes sense in our market, Fuller said. They have technology right now where they can make one tiny incision and do bladder repair; that sort of procedure. In the end, Fuller said, the communitys hospital care boils down to locally taking care of local folks. appointments. We get four or ve (cancellations) a day, county health department support technician Adrienne Ferguson said. For some of our services, we went to same-day appointments because of that. A modest co-pay, even if its refundable, could remedy the situation, Gaetz has said. Cindy Hammonds, an administrator with the Crestview Women, Infants and Children health program, said starting walk-in clinics has reduced no-shows.

Several vendors offer health care screenings and provide education during the health fair at the Crestview Community Center, which typically draws hundreds of residents.

The Baker Lions Club, which counts childrens health as an organizational goal, sponsors the program. Local doctors and community leaders sponsor the Crestview No Child Without Health Care Fair at Crestview High School. It facilitates free health screenings and provides information as kids head back to school. CC Re E STVIe E WS OUTDOOR GYMOne of our community planning groups is focusing on, How would we inventory the recreational opportunities where county residents could go walking safely, where they could go to a health facility and walk a track or ride a bike? Chapman said. Such facilities exist at the city level. The Crestview Recreation Departments inclusion of exercise equipment along the half-mile walking, jogging and biking trail proved a popular addition to Twin Hills Park. On a chilly March morning, Crestview resident Marilyn Stephens was getting in a vigorous workout on the rowing machine. I like it out here, she said. Theres no trafc. Why get a gym membership when this is available for free? Staying active is important to Larry Caskey, who made his morning walks around the track part of his daily routine like brushing my teeth, he said. Stephens and Caskey said residents of all ages use the citys health facilities. Different times of day, youll see different people out here, Caskey said, adding that college students, young mothers with infants in strollers, and folks in their 80s are among regulars he encounters. I even see military people in their uniforms walking the track before they go to work, Stephens said. Except in the most inclement weather, regulars gather at the park for exercise; some meet exercise buddies to walk the circuit. Fitness groups and tai chi clubs also gather in the parks green spaces.

Still, he said, as far as the niceness of our facilities and the upkeep job our coaches do, I would grade them high: an A he said. But as far as the feasibility and the square footage of our weight room facility and the lack of gym space for our teams, Id grade it very low, a D maybe. And as far as our baseball eld being displaced down the road and our guys not being able to walk out back and having a practice facility and a dressing room facility, Id grade that very low. But as far as us coaches making it work with what weve got and the upkeep of the facilities and it being what it is, I think its ne. So overall it would be a C plus or B minus.LaLAUReEL HILLLaurel Hill School, Okaloosa Countys smallest public school with a high school athletic program, only elds teams in volleyball, boys and girls basketball, baseball and softball, but facility maintenance is still a concern. The school takes pride in and frequently upgrades the facilities, Laurel Hill athletic director and head boys basketball coach Kent Zessin said. Any time we are able to get funding for athletic facilities, it is greatly appreciated, and we try to stretch that money as far as we possibly can, he said. We have done some ... renovation or remodeling to our three athletic facilities over the last 10 years, starting with the softball eld, adding lights, and (as) recently as last year, adding two dugouts to that facility. As far as the baseball facility, it has been ... maybe eight years now that a new backstop was put in, a three-foot wall with the netting. Also, there was a renovation of the dugout, a new scoreboard, ineld grass and irrigation system that brought that facility up to par with everyone in the county. The Hoboes gym that is home to the volleyball and basketball teams has received improvements in the last ve years as the school made the gym handicap-accessible, stripped and renished the court and upgraded restroom facilities. Gym renovations resulted in 150 fewer seats then the initial 750 capacity, but it was necessary for the gym to be handicap-accessible. Going forward, Zessin would like to see the locker rooms unchanged since the gym was built in 1969 get a makeover. The wish list would be to actually add dressing room facilities for visiting teams, both boys and girls as well as home team, so we would have four dressing rooms, he said. That way, we could kind of take care of our own and the visitors when they come here. They would have something nice also and the physical education classes could use that ... It would take some planning, but it could be done.
