PAGE 1 50¢ By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian CRESTVIEW — On two 3-2 votes, the city council has approved a .25 percent property tax increase and the the same $29,110,313.35 city budget originally presented during a Sept. 5 budget workshop. Council President Robyn Helt and Councilman Tom Gordon voted nay on both resolutions. Councilman Shannon Hayes made the motions to adopt the tax increase and budget, which Councilman Joe Blocker seconded. Councilman Mickey Rytman also voted in favor of the resolutions. During Tuesday’s budget hearing, Crestview resident Thomas Simms criticized the council for not addressing operational issues that led to the increased millage rate and for failing to curb personnel expenses, which account for 80 percent of the city’s budget. “It’s impossible to live with 80 percent of the budget going to personnel,” Simms said. “If my mortgage was 80 percent of my income, I couldn’t survive.” The adopted budget excludes personnel cuts, but does require every city employee to take 32 hours of unpaid furlough. “I’m very disappointed in this budget, and it’s not about the tax increase,” Simms said. “Employees lost 32 hours in furlough; the citizens lost .25 percent in a millage increase, but have we gotten anything for it? No.” ‘Buy a lottery ticket’ Simms also expressed concern that some council members have placed too much hope in the city receiving a recently applied for grant that would alleviate some personnel expenses. “The city might as well buy a lottery ticket and hope it wins. That’s what we’re doing banking on the SAFER Grant,” Simms said, referring to the FEMA-administered Staf ng for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response grant. The grant, if awarded, could fund 12 Council OKs budget, millage increase Final vote will be in 2 weeks “The millage increase is minute.” Joe Blocker Crestview City Council ‘I’m disgusted.” Robyn Helt Crestview City Council President By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian CRESTVIEW — Curbing Stillwell Boulevard between Royal Street and Rainbow Lane also should curb residents’ concerns about Walker Elementary School visitors parking on their lawns. Currently, upon drop-off or pick-up, parents who drive their children to school often park in front of homes facing the school on Stillwell’s north side. A multi-phase plan to resolve the problem will go into effect within a week, County Commissioner Wayne Harris said during a Thursday morning meeting with residents Don and Becky Hennerberg and Holly Meadows. Meadows and the Hennerbergs said the practice is not only an inconvenience for them, but also is hazardous for children who sometimes dart between vehicles to cross the street. After the residents brought their concerns to Harris, he met with county Public Works and sheriff’s of ce of cials to devise a solution. “I’m very excited and optimistic,” Meadows said. “Kids will be kids. This should keep them safer.” Solutions The rst phase — erecting signage that prohibits parking, standing or idling in front of residents’ homes — will probably be in place next week, Harris said.

Curbing parking problems County addresses residents’ concerns about Walker students’ safety FROM STAFF REPORTS Two Crestview police officers have been fired following Police Chief Tony Taylor’s review of sworn testimony in former Maj. Joseph Floyd’s trial and subsequent investigations, Taylor said. Sgt. Matthew Purvines and Officer Zachary Faircloth were terminated following internal investigations that Taylor began Sept. 4, the Crestview Police Department announced on Thursday. The men were placed on administrative leave with pay during the investigation, according to a CPD news release, which said that Taylor determined “... both officers disclosed personal and critical breaches of ethics and moral character ... (such as) falsification of police reports.” Investigations concluded Tuesday and found the following violations of CPD, Crestview and Florida policies and statutes, according to Taylor: • Withholding information from a superior officer and not being truthful at all times • Knowingly using false information in a police report • Being disorderly, whether on or off duty Purvines had been with the CPD since 2004; he served in the patrol division, was a County Drug Task Force investigator, a Street Crimes Unit investigator, a sergeant and a canine handler. Faircloth also began serving the CPD in 2004; he was assigned to the patrol division, was a Street Crimes Unit investigator and was a canine handler. Floyd was convicted of racketeering on Aug. 22. Taylor said he would continue to review trial testimony to determine whether additional administrative actions are necessary. “My assessment is not yet finished with the disposition of these immediate matters,” he said. “In fact, it has only just begun.” 2 Crestview police of cers red in Floyd trial aftermath By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian CRESTVIEW — Community leaders took time before Wednesday morning’s Government Issues Committee meeting for a moment of silence to remember 9/11 victims.

Membership fees and dues cover just enough to pay utility bills, he said. “We need to generate some money,” he said. “We need to paint the place and the outside (of the building) needs pressure washing.” In addition, the facility could use a storage area for sports equipment, which currently is placed in crowded offices. To raise money, Moody organized the “Be a Cowboy or Cowgirl for a Day” at Old Warrior Ranch. Families up to four members can attend for $20; all funds raised benefit the Crestview YMCA, which has more than 3,000 members. Ticket sales are limited to 200. Families are encouraged to wear their cowboy hats for horse and pony rides, a petting zoo, line dancing, archery and fishing; anglers should bring a fishing pole and bait. Children can play in a bounce house and attendees can swim in the ranch’s pool. Hot dogs and refreshments will be available. “It’s going to be a family-oriented day,” Moody said. “We are going to have all sorts of fun and western activities.” SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN Zachary Mann rides a horse directed by his mother, Dawn Mann, at Old Warrior Ranch in Crestview. “Be a Cowboy or Cowgirl for a Day,” a Crestview YMCA fundraiser, is Sunday, Sept. 29 at the ranch.

Old Warrior Ranch to host YMCA fundraiser on Sept. 29 SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN Tom Moody. Editor’s Note: This story about Moses, his excuses and God’s replies continues in the Sept. 21 edition. The story I’m about to share with you is from the Bible — with some humor tossed in. It’s divided into three parts. Moses was born when the Egyptians enslaved the Hebrew people and killed off their rstborn males. To protect him, Moses’ mother placed him in a waterproof basket and sent him up the river. The basket was found by the Pharaoh’s daughter, who took Moses and raised him as her own. Moses’ own mother wound up being his nursemaid. His real mother was there to raise him, nurture him, and teach him the Hebrew people’s ways. As Moses grew, he was told to keep his heritage a secret. As a young adult, Moses developed quite a temper. One day, he witnessed an Egyptian guard beating a Hebrew slave and killed the batterer. He didn’t think anyone had seen him so he dragged the body out of view and buried it. A couple of days later, Moses saw two Hebrews arguing with each other. He went over to them and told them to stop. And one of them turned to him and said, “Why, are you going to kill us just like you did the Egyptian?” Moses panicked. He knew if the Hebrews had seen him kill the Egyptian guard, someone else might have, too. He ran into the wilderness. There, he met a beautiful young woman whom he married. Moses tended his father-inlaw’s sheep, his wife bore several children, the years passed, and they lived a comfortable life. It seemed that all that had happened back in Egypt was forgotten. One day, one of the sheep went missing and Moses searched for it. As he searched, he saw what looked like ames coming from the center of a bush, but the bush remained intact. Moses got closer and then something weirder happened: The bush started talking. But what really freaked out Moses was that the talking bush knew his name. “Moses!” the bush said. “Don’t get too close. And by the way, take off your sandals because you are standing on holy ground.” He did as he was told. Then, the voice in the bush identi ed itself as being God. And God said, “I have heard the cry of my people down in Egypt and they are being treated poorly. I want you to be my voice in Egypt. Go there and tell Pharaoh to let my people go.” Well, Moses had all kinds of excuses. He said, “Now look. You know and I know that no one is going to listen to me because I don’t have any authority. You heard how those Hebrews treated me when they saw I killed somebody. How can I convince them to come with me so I can be their leader?” God said, “Don’t worry about that. I will give you all the authority you will need.” Moses said, “Yeah, right. How are they going to believe that I was sent by you? What’s your name?” God said “I AM.” Moses said, “Is that supposed to get people to follow me? By saying ‘I AM sent me?’” God said, “I am who I am, and on that alone I give you the authority you need to do what must be done.” How about you? When you sense that God wants you to do something, do you make excuses? You are not alone. The Rev. Mark Broadhead is Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Crestview’s pastor. 61ST ANNIVERSARY HOMECOMING CELEBRATION: 10 a.m. to noon Sept. 15, Community of Christ Church, 398 W.

By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian CRESTVIEW — Financial pressure from the state forced the Okaloosa County Board of Commissioners to raise ad valorem taxes, Commissioner Wayne Harris says. The 17 cents per $1,000 increase helps address $38.5 million in unfunded mandates the state has imposed on the county for the past three years, Harris said Thursday. “We cut as much as we possibly could,” he said. “If we didn’t have to spend the $38.5 million, we’d probably lower the taxes. Raising taxes wouldn’t even have been under consideration.” County chief nancial of cer Gary Stanford cited the following state unfunded mandates as being particularly burdensome to Okaloosa County: • Retirement contributions for county employees, which the Florida Legislature periodically changes • Detention services for the Department of Juvenile Justice: “The cost of the operating and support services for those services is ‘shared,’ as they say, with counties,” Stanford said. “We pay millions of dollars for those detention services.” • Federally mandated state Medicaid contributions, the cost of which Florida passes directly to counties • The state-implemented Healthcare Responsibility Act: “It basically requires local governments to pay for indigent health care cost for county residents, regardless of where the service is provided in the state,” Stanford said. The state has a process for balancing its own budget, Harris said. “This is the process,” he said, making a sweeping motion across the table with his hands. “They sweep it from Tallahassee to local government and let us take the heat.” While counties are forced to make unpopular cuts in services or unwanted tax increases to nance these and other state mandates, the state appears to have balanced its budget, Harris said. “What we do is cut 134 staff positions, cut purchases, we cut down spending,” Harris said. “When they (the state) cut, they just dump it on the counties. It looks great for them.” ADVERTISE IN THE NEWS BULLETIN NEWS INFORMATION If you have a concern or comment about the Crestview News Bulletin’s coverage, please call 682-6524.

Harris: Unfunded state mandates led to tax increase BRIEF Like us on CRESTVIEW BULLETIN COUNTY FIND IT ONLINE See www.crestview government for a copy of the resolution on new public meeting procedures. By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew CRESTVIEW — Because of Councilman Mickey Rytman’s absence Monday, city leaders couldn’t make changes to water and sewer rates. Councilmen Thomas Gordon and Shannon Hayes voted in favor of a one-year 5 percent increase, while council president Robyn Helt and council member Joe Blocker voted against the motion. Rytman was absent due to illness.. Gordon’s motion, seconded by Hayes, would have included a $1 monthly fee for stormwater assessments. “We haven’t had a (water) rate increase in the past 14 years,” Gordon said. “We are past due.” Customers would have noticed a 59-cent increase in their water bills if the motion had passed, City Clerk Betsy Roy said. Helt agreed a rate increase is necessary, but said such an increase should exceed the proposed amount. Helt based her decision on information presented by Tetra Tech, an engineering and consulting rm that provided water-mapping services to the city. “It was advised four years ago to have a 2 percent increase per year,” Helt said. “By my estimation, we’re 8 percent behind.” The council will discuss the issue during a future workshop, Roy said. Council split on rate increase for city water service CRESTVIEW “What we do is cut 134 staff positions, cut purchases, we cut down spending.

Local Crestview News Bulletin | A5 Saturday, September 14, 2013 introducing speaker Nathan Sparks, the Okaloosa County Economic Development Council’s executive director. Sparks said he was attending an economic conference in Toulouse, France, when the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks occurred. Many participants in the conference were Americans. “It was one of those moments that made so many of our hearts stop,” Sparks said. and they would continually be remembered,” Monsignor Michael Tugwell said. Harry Leboeuf, a Knights of Columbus member who helped organize the occasion, said a prayer for peace would be bene cial for America. “With all of the things going on in the world, praying for peace is probably a pretty good idea,” he said. Longtime church member Rosa Garrett said peace always overcomes hate. “We can’t help people through hate,” she said. “We have to overcome hate with good.” re ghters’ salaries. Hayes and Blocker said the council has inherited the problems that made this year’s budgeting process particularly dif cult. “We had to do what we did with the time that we had to work to,” Blocker said. “The millage rate (increase) is minute. That is one thing that had to be.” After the vote, Helt, who had strongly implored her fellow council members to address operational issues, said, ‘I’m disgusted. I might as well trade in my car and go back to horse-and-buggy days.” During discussion, she cautioned that increasing taxes without addressing inherent problems was “unsustainable.” “If we’re going to increase rates, we need to see some changes,” Helt said. Gordon also felt not enough cuts had been made to departments’ budgets, and called raising taxes “going after low-hanging fruit.” The budget will come before the council for a nal vote Sept. 24 and will take effect with the new scal year W e ar e in the business of pr o viding qualit y healthcar e R egar dless of title or job func tion, each emplo y ee pla y s an impor tan t par t in the deliv er y of pa tien t car e F or their e x tr aor dinar y c on tr ibutions each quar t er Nor th Ok aloosa M edical C en t er selec ts an Emplo y ee of the Q uar t er fr om the Emplo y ee of the M on th r ecipien ts f or tha t quar t er C ongr a tula tions t o … Emplo y ee of the Q uar t er – T er esa Llo y d R eg istr ar Business O c e T er esa has been a v aluable member of the NOMC t eam sinc e 1996.

By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle NICEVILLE — Rocky Bayou Christian School’s gym, dubbed “The Dungeon,” didn’t intimidate Laurel Hill School’s volleyball team on Tuesday, when the Hoboes visited the Knights. One night after a four-set match with Pleasant Home (Ala.), the Hoboes had enough left in their collective tanks to beat Rocky Bayou 3-0 by scores of 25-20, 25-18 and 25-21. “We played last night and went four tough games with Pleasant Home and we were a little tired tonight,” Hobo coach Kent Zessin said. “But as long as we were making our passes to our setters, and our setters were getting it up, we were able to do a pretty good job with our kills. “We served the ball pretty well again tonight. Defensively, we did a real good job.” Zessin’s simple formula for success worked time after time for the Hoboes (3-2) as smart play and timely kills proved to be the winning ticket. The rst set’s early points saw the teams jockeying for position. Maria Denbow gave the Knights an early boost as Rocky Bayou led 3-2. An ace by Lauren Gordon in serve put the Hoboes up 5-4; they never trailed again the rst set. A pair of unforced Knight errors gave Laurel Hill its biggest lead of the rst set at 17-11. Rocky Bayou never got closer than three points the rest of the set. Denbow and Hannah Barber sparked a quick Knight start in set two as Rocky Bayou led 7-2. But the steady Hoboes didn’t buckle when behind. A Kaylee L’Homme kill stopped the early Knight run. Laurel Hill trailed 8-4 when Gordon stepped to the service line. By the time the Knights broke Gordon’s serve, the Hoboes had tied the set. The teams traded points until the 14-14 point, at which time Laurel Hill went on an 11-4 run to nish off the set. Bridget Zessin, Breanna Trunk and Gordon all played a big part in the nishing run of the set. Laurel Hill never trailed in the third set as the Hoboes built a 15-5 lead before the Knights rallied back behind the play of Emmaly Smith and Lauren Wright. But the hole was too deep for Rocky Bayou to dig out of as Laurel Hill held on for the win. Gordon and Zessin each had ve kills to lead the Hobo attack. Gordon also had ve aces. Zessin had three blocks. L’Homme and Jhanea Grif n had two blocks each. Morgan Meeks had eight assists; Trunk had four assists. Kent Zessin admitted the team still has work to do, but he likes what he sees at this point of the season. “We are in a process of learning,” he said. “It’s my rst year back in four or ve years and they are picking things up slowly but surely. I’ve got a couple of pretty good hitters in Lauren Gordon and Bridget Zessin. “If I can get my two bigs — Jhanea Grif n and Kaylee L’Homme — there with them, we will be four deep at the hitting position, which at 1A is pretty nice. I’ve got two pretty good setters and good defense to back that up. We are just going to continue to work every day and hope for the best come district time.” By SETH STRINGER 315-4421 | @SethSnwfdn FORT WALTON BEACH — Entering Wednesday night’s matchup with undefeated Crestview High School, Choctawhatchee knew an upset would only be possible with a near-perfect effort. And that was only reinforced in the rst set, when the Indians watched a 2322 lead vanish in the blink of an eye as 7-0 Crestview won the opener 25-23. But the Indians didn’t hang their heads on their home court. Instead, they made adjustments; with them, the momentum turned, and it turned quickly. Freshman Evelina Teran put up a dominant defensive effort with a team-best ve blocks to accompany ve kills, Shannon McDonald and Emily Keichel each dished out a team-high 13 assists, and Heather Young led the Indians with 12 kills en route to a 23-25, 25-20, 2521, 25-18 win. “I thought we played really well,” said Choctaw rst-year head coach Scott Allen, whose team improved to 3-3. “They came out and took the rst (set) and we kind of made some adjustments. We told our girls, ‘If we can cut down on the errors, then we should de nitely be able to win this match.’ They had a lot of heart, they played really hard, and they didn’t get down on themselves ... (Wednesday), we were able to cut down on the errors after that rst game, and it came out in our favor.” In the rst set alone, Choctaw lost 13 points because of unforced errors. But after watching the 6-foot Teran and 5-9 Anya Shelton limit Crestview’s attack — which was bolstered by a match-high 13 kills from Brittany Pase and 10 kills from Jasmine Middleton — in the rst set, the Indians cleaned it up and never trailed in the second set. Teran and Shelton combined for ve blocks and six kills, and the Indians cruised to a 25-20 secondset win. “I was really frustrated we didn’t utilize the blocks we got in game one from (Teran), along with the three or four we got from (Shelton), who played middle for only the second time tonight,” Allen said. “I was hoping we would get that same action and eventually capitalize, and you noticed that the Crestview girls didn’t want to challenge that blocking after the rst game.” With Keichel and McDonald dishing out crisp sets, Young took over with six kills in the third set. Shannon McDonald and Britney Krueger added three kills each in a 25-12 win. Young added ve kills in the nal set for the Indians, who never trailed en route to a 25-18 victory. While no longer District 2-6A foes — Choctaw falling down to 5A and Crestview rising up to 7A — Allen said that both programs’ change of scenery didn’t diminish the rivalry. “The coaches know each other, the players know each other, so we love playing against each other,” he said. “It’s a good, spirited game with a lot of intensity, and you can feel it in the gym.” Saturday, September 14, 2013 A Page 8 Section S PORTS Indians hand Crestview volleyball team rst loss By SETH STRINGER 315-4421 | @SethSnwfdn NICEVILLE — Following the Niceville volleyball team’s sweep of district foe Navarre on Tuesday, Portia Rodgers was asked what she thought of Crestview. “They’re de nitely going to be our biggest competition in the district,” the senior said. The comment — a nod to strides made by the Bulldogs, who entered Thursday’s District 1-7A match against the Eagles at 7-1 — af rmed that Niceville isn’t overlooking anyone in its big-picture goal of a state title. That was true with rival Mosley in the seasonopening sweep. And that was evident in Thursday night’s sweep of Crestview, the second rival to go down swiftly in the Eagles’ home gym. Niceville senior Breana Rodriguez led the team with four aces. Ashley Hagood had a team-high eight kills to go along with 12 assists, Rodgers delivered a team-best 13 assists, and the Eagles (7-2) served up 10 aces en route to a 25-17, 25-18, 25-16 win over the Bulldogs. Niceville head coach John Michael Plummer was so impressed that after a couple of lunging digs kept rallies alive and led to Niceville points in the third set, the 23-year-old made somewhat of a TKO motion like he had seen enough. And Niceville was on top of its game yet again against a rival. It all happened at Niceville, which Plummer says is one of the most electric volleyball atmospheres in the area. Tessa Morken and Bailey Noon, who had seven kills, each delivered double-digit digs, Sami Mims had ve kills and three blocks, and Jen Smith, Stephanie Kaufman and Rodriguez each served up four kills. But it was Crestview, which was paced by Jasmine Middleton’s nine kills and Molly Kitchen’s 12 assists, that came out on re, jumping ahead 4-0 on the strength of two Middleton kills and a block. Niceville settled in and overcame Middleton’s dominance in the early going. Mims delivered four kills and Portia Rodgers dished out eight assists and three aces to lead the Eagles to a comfortable 25-17 win in the opener. Crestview answered with another 4-0 lead, but yet again, the Bulldogs couldn’t sustain the momentum. Hagood dished out ve assists and Mims shined with three blocks, the last up the middle to cap a 25-18 win. That set the tone for the nal set, when Hagood delivered ve kills and Kaufman put the capper on the match with a kill up the middle for the 25-16 win. Eagles too strong for Bulldogs By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle BAKER — A slow start for Baker School’s volleyball team didn’t spell disaster Thursday night as the Gators hosted District 3-1A rival Freeport. Trailing 15-11 midway through the rst set, the Gators turned up the intensity and took the win 3-0 by scores of 25-20, 25-13 and 25-14. The Bulldogs (5-2, 1-1) capitalized on big hitting from Mary Kate Myrick and Amanda Sefo to jump to the quick start, but Baker made the necessary adjustments to offset Freeport’s power. “We came out kind of slow, but we stepped it up when we had to step it up and do the little things we need to do,” Gator coach Tommiko Parks said. “Overall, it was a pretty good performance. “We have to get the balls we know we can get and, when we get a ball, we have to be able to transition and run good offense. That’s what we did tonight — we were able to use those digs and use those balls we could get to and transition to our offense and make good things happen for our team.” Parks said the Gators might have been a little rattled by the power of Myrick, who nished the night with a match-high 11 kills. Four of Myrick’s kills came as the Bulldogs built the early lead. However, as 10-time defending district champions, the Gators (5-2, 4-0) are used to overcoming a little adversity as they outscored Freeport 14-5 down the stretch to take the rst set. Unforced Bulldog errors helped the Gator cause, but Baker players also had something to do with the rally. A Hartley Moate ace gave the Gators the lead at 18-17. And it was an Alex Roy ace that nished off the set. The Gators took a quick 4-0 lead in the second set and never looked back. Ashley Black had three of her team-high six kills to spark Baker’s outburst. Freeport kept things close for a while in the third set as the teams traded points, but the Bulldogs could never wrestle the lead from the Gators. A Myrick kill tied the set at 9-9, but six unanswered Baker points pushed the Gator lead to 15-9 as the Bulldogs never got closer than ve points the rest of the way. Hana Wadsworth recorded ve kills to join Black’s six kills. Lena Daoud had nine assists. Roy had a team best eight digs. Jordan Linzy and Brittany Brunson had ve digs each, while Moate and Daoud had four digs each. Myrick had 10 aces to go along with her 11 kills for Freeport. Laura Ham had 11 aces for the Bulldogs; Kennedi Bates had 11 digs. Baker won the junior varsity match 2-0. RANDY DICKSON | News Bulletin Ashley Black tries to hit a ball past Freeport’s Amanda Sefo.
