Relay For Life will be at 6 p.m. April 25 at Shoal River Middle School in Crestview. CRESTVIEW The American Cancer Society is more than $7,000 closer to a cure after Saturdays Davidson Dash 5K/10K. The numbers are not nal, but preliminary numbers look like $7,500, give or take $100, event organizer Daniel Richards said. Almost 300 participants ran the race or signed up for a silent auction to win door prizes donated by local businesses. Ultimately, they remembered loved ones and neighbors touched by cancer. Its a cause that is near to our hearts, said Crestview resident Suzi Gaszak, who ran with her 13-year-old son, Jonah. My mom had cancer several years ago and passed away. Gaszaks mother, Shelby Seymour, died from breast cancer in 1989. Although cancer treatments have progressed a long way since then, Gaszak would love for there to be a cure. Now you have a good chance of survival; back then it was almost a death sentence, and thats why I want to see an end to this, she said. Niceville resident Blake Sparks said she enjoys running 5Ks, but particularly appreciates the cause of this one. I just ran to support the cause, she said. Raising money for the ght against cancer is an important cause. Running the Dash was a way to honor loved ones with cancer while having the added bene t of exercise, said Trevor Bryant, 15. Its fun, he said. Everybody can get out and have a good time. Former Crestview pastors Belize mission makes a differenceBy BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com When the Rev. Heath Burchett announced in 2008 hed been called to another church, First United Methodist Church members were heartbroken. However, loss of the churchs young youth minister and associate pastor and his energetic wife, Amanda, was another ministrys gain. Since leaving Crestview, the Burchetts have been building a mission the couple founded in Belize City, Belize. Heath Burchett said taking a First United Methodist youth mission trip to the former British Honduras Central Americas only English-speaking country earlier in 2008 led to Gods call for the couple to return and begin their Belize Habit Missions. We were greatly disturbed by the lack of youth involvement in the local church, and yet hundreds of teens were only blocks away hanging out, playing sports and using drugs, Amanda Burchett wrote on the missions website. We began to research youth involvement in the life of the local churches in various towns and villages, and what we found was a great need, she wrote. Today, the ministry has more than 30 volunteers and supports several churches in Belize City and nearby communities. After six years of hard work and countless hours of volunteer help, the couple were upbeat as they shared a report on the 2013 successes of their advocacy for the homeless and youth through several ministries. Highlights are as follows: The Cayo Community Youth Ministry drew 90 teens to youth rallies, gatherings and a Christmas party. The mission sponsored the education of Rose, a young girl who received her school uniform, meals and transportation to and from school. The Feed the (Pickney) Children ministry began two new school food programs in the Pickney community, for a total of three DANIEL RICHARDSDash organizer INSIDESee more photos from the Davidson Dash 5K/10K on Page A5 and at www. crestviewbulletin. com/photosPHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETINStudents at a Belize City school receive nourishing lunches from a ministry founded by a former Crestview youth minister and his wife.

The Crestview woman has noticed the increasing costs of household products. Ever since theyve (the children) been little, Ive used Scott tissue, she said. The tissue rolls are not as big as they used to be, and theyre shorter than what they used to be. Everythings been cut down but the price. Then theres dishwashing detergent. They cut the ounces down, and the bottle looks real cute, but its smaller and youre paying more, she said. Small grocery bill spikes paled in comparison to the house insurance, which increased $200 per month this year, taking half her income, she said.

It is very bene cial coming to the library, rather than going to somewhere else and spending $50 and $100, he said. I highly recommend this to other people. Volunteers will assist lowto moderate-income residents four days a week through April 15. Many residents from North Okaloosa and parts of southern Alabama have traveled to Crestview just to get their taxes ready for the IRS, second-year volunteer Irene Maier said. Volunteers say a growing number of area residents seek assistance. It has increased over the years, 11-year volunteer Louise Eastridge said. Each volunteer receives a week of training, either in person or online, and must pass an Internal Revenue Service test, certifying them as tax preparation counselors. Depending on the number of people who sign in and the complexity of their tax returns, Eastridge said volunteers try to see as many people as they can between each period. But their help is in limited supply. We have to cut it off at some point, she said.

The lowest bid the city received to perform janitorial services was Executive Cleanings $55,402, but the city could save money by performing the work, Public Works Director Wayne Steele said. Prorating the in-house amount to cover the scal years remaining eight months will cost the city $23,789, which Steele said is $21,779 less than the remaining budgeted $45,568. The part-time employees will receive a starting hourly wage ranging between $9.70 and $10.28, depending on the employees quali cations and experience, and no bene ts except for FICA and workers compensation. During budget discussions, Crestview Fire Department re ghters opted to clean their re stations, except for administration areas, to save taxpayer money.

I met Deborah Reynolds-Nash on Friday afternoon when most of our news team had left the building for a well-deserved break from non-stop reporting on the winter storm. Renee, our editorial assistant, and I were tying up loose ends, posting stories on the web and preparing for the next weeks production. That was when Melissa, our media sales consultant, peeked in my of ce and said, Theres someone here to see you. She has a complaint. Thats unusual, I thought. But I took deep breaths, headed toward the reception area and braced myself for the unknown. As it happened, the complaint had to do with a power bill. I sat down to listen to Deborahs story, about how she felt she was overcharged and how she brought $223 in pennies to Crestviews Gulf Power of ce. She wondered if she could write a letter to the editor or somehow express a grievance in the News Bulletin. Anyone who knows me knows I try to tell it like it is. Ill tell you, Im human perfectionist to a fault but prone to error, which I think is more respectable than libustering for years before issuing a correction about something minimal. Similarly, Ill tell you, respectfully, what I think of your story. This is an unusual story and Id like to tell it, I told Deborah. But I dont think this is a problem-withGulf-Power story. They have the right to set and change their business practices. I believe this story is much larger than that. It tells of the struggles many people are experiencing in this economy. Still, you dont see seven bags containing thousands of pennies every day. Its an unusual story for this area. And it brought the most unusual photo opportunity I can recall. Honestly, how often do you handle someone elses money? Especially when its a signi cant amount? For some people, money is a personal matter; it should be handled with care and it is meant to be spent wisely. As Deborah defended her decision to buy Scott toilet tissue over the generic brand that doesnt last as long, and said she used the replace now mere decoration for many households that trade higher power bills for convenience I knew we shared similar values. Her penny plan was understandable. Not necessarily justi able thats not for me to say but understandable. If your bill is higher than expected, sometimes the only option is to pay. So some people civilly express dissatisfaction with that. People like Julann Roe in Dade City, who in November paid her $11,075.44 property tax bill in $1 bills and pennies, according to the Tampa Bay Times; Larry Gasper in Redding, Calif., who paid nearly $15,000 in late property taxes last year with two buckets full of coins and cash, according to ABC News; and a number of others, from England to China, who apparently wanted to send a message. Right or wrong, such symbolic acts are becoming a trend, and say a lot about the shape our economy is in. Whats your view?

Negligent discharge.Jamie ParkinMLK POSTER ON CONFEDERATE FLAG A MISGUIDED PROTESTAs a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, I am embarrassed at the misuse of Dr. Kings image. He was, in my eyes, a hero just like the brave men who fought and bled for that ag. His actions, like the Confederate soldiers, were vili ed by some in their own time, but history has come to show that the cause was just. It is only sad that someone thought this was an act of protest... The battle ag of the (Army of Northern Virginia) has been misused by the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and other hate groups. It has caused those of us who revere the ag, and the soldiers who followed this brave banner, to try to educate those that would disparage the ag for the actions of the people who misused it. I, in no way, defend atrocities committed by those (people). What they have done has desecrated a ag that is worthy of nothing but honor as a symbol of men struggling to preserve a representative republic (for) which their fathers and grandfathers risked all to found 80 years before.David MaddexCRESTVIEWS ANIMAL CONTROL ORDINANCE SHOULD ALLOW CHICKENS(Many) communities are now allowing homeowners to own a few chickens for eggs and pest control. Im not talking about roosters which wake you, but hens who dont crow. I wrote (a city council member) and didnt even get a reply on this issue. Very disappointed!Silvia Clem Womack GRAVE VANDALS CROSS A LINEIs this yet another grave (theft)? I dont care if youre a punk prankster. Youre crossing the line here.Jon Bell ENJOYED NEWS BULLETINS STORM RECAP VIDEOI drove up to Crestview on Wednesday from Fort Pierce to nd glistening trees, sparkling grass and sheer shine within your town. Your video captured it. You did miss the lengthy delays on Route 90, but I didnt. And actually enjoyed seeing that part of the state. Nice video.Anne Dougherty Thompson EDITH GENDRONCentral Florida Brain Bank Health care professionals have the expertise to know what is best for patients and must have access to a full range of therapeutic options to use as they see t. They should not be burdened with administrative obstacles as they seek the most appropriate therapy. Health care professionals, not bureaucrats, should determine the best course of treatment and medications for their patients. I have been prescribed Victoza to treat Type II diabetes. Upon transfer to a new insurance company, I couldnt obtain a re ll in a timely manner because of their determination that this medication needed preauthorization. I couldnt afford the medication, and couldnt purchase it and wait for reimbursement, which left me with no medication for two weeks. A few months later, I attempted to obtain a re ll and was told another pre-authorization was required. Pre-authorization for medication, especially when it has already been in use, is not a sensible use of health care dollars. Balance is needed. Policies must not only take into account immediate costs but also recognize that proper, early treatment of a disease can ward off future, more costly treatments such as hospitalization. When a physician prescribes medication, the insurer should not be able to refuse to cover that prescription until a patient tries and fails on a cheaper alternative not prescribed by the doctor. We need to seize the opportunity this legislative session to ensure that our system sets the standard for continuity of care, formulary requirements and access to medicines and therapy. Many Floridians face barriers to care when dealing with their health. We should focus on making it easier for people to care for their health, removing unnecessary obstacles that could deter patients from following necessary and costsaving drug therapies. Access restrictions can prohibit a provider from prescribing what they believe is the best therapy option for a patient. For example, these patients need to know there is a clear and convenient process to quickly request and override any step therapy or failrst protocol if a doctor determines that a drug on the standard managed care protocol will not work, or could even worsen a patients condition. A physician should not have to wade through bureaucratic red tape to have the more appropriate treatment covered by an insurance company. Instead, there should be a clear and convenient process to request an override when it is medically necessary for a patient to have an alternative, more appropriate, treatment. My physician has been treating me for 10 years. She knows what my diagnoses are, and how to best treat and cure those illnesses that can be cured. To have her excellent care disrupted by health insurance policy, with no provision for emergency backup, is unconscionable and unacceptable. Health insurance companies need to apply the same policies and procedures across the board. It should not be a matter of each company deciding to manipulate medical information to further their own pro t. Individuals should be responsible for their own health. And these patients should be able to work with their physicians to determine the best course of medication, rather than having bureaucrats make the nal decisions on the most appropriate treatment options. We support the Florida Legislatures efforts to strengthen and improve vital patient access.

FAITH www.crestviewbulletin.comWednesday, February 5, 2014 Page A6 FROM THE PULPITThis week I am providing you with ve daily devotions for your re ection and prayer. Some may t with circumstances in your life, some may not. Either way, remember to focus your heart and thoughts on God.DAY ONEHow well do you remember God during the course of your day? It might be easy during quiet times. But what about while you are driving in slow traf c, or while standing in a long check-out line, or dealing with an impatient child? These are times when God needs to be remembered not shoved aside. When remembering God, you will be able to recognize the peace he offers in the middle of any situation. Evening and morning and at noon I utter my complaint and moan, and he will hear my voice. Psalm 55:17DAY TWOI wonder if the warning system God has placed within us our conscience is losing its effect on peoples lives. Im not talking about everyone, but a growing number of people around this country. The growing attitude of, I dont care how my actions affect another person, Im doing or getting whatever I want, seems to be taking over by leaps and bounds. This mindset goes against Gods desire for us to be mindful of other people. It negates treating others with the same kind of respect we would hope to receive in return. Remember, it is not God who has softened the warning system. It is we who are becoming calloused to its warnings and necessities. Therefore I do my best always to have a clear conscience toward God and all people. Acts 24:15DAY THREEThe tongue doesnt weigh much, but it carries great weight. It takes great strength to hold your tongue. I have seen people turn red in the face while holding it. And when it is not held in the heat of an emotional struggle or argument, it will do great damage. It may cause irreparable harm. Do your utmost to bridle your tongue. Do your utmost to not brag and boast in order to make yourself look fantastic in the eyes of others. Such unbridled words may have serious unintended consequences. So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great exploits. How great a forest is set ablaze by a small re! James 3:5DAY FOURDo you need assistance in turning around an issue in your life? Ask God for help. Do you desire to know Gods loving grace more deeply? Ask God to reveal more to you. Do you long to know you are loved and accepted by God? Ask God to enter your heart and open yourself to him. God rarely imposes himself on anyone. And when God does, he always allows for a person to reject or accept his offer. It is only when we ask that we will receive. And when we ask, God will come in. Listen! I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with me. Revelation 3:20DAY FIVEHow often do you wish God would do something for you? Perhaps you desire new clothing, but cant quite afford it, or perhaps there is a new shing rod that caught your eye. Perhaps you are wanting to feel less lonely or insecure. Do you ask God to provide what you want and then sit back and wait for God to drop it into your lap? Often, when we ask something from God, he wants to know what we are going to do to play a part in achieving that desire. If you ask something from God, be sure to let him know the role you anticipate playing in the attaining of it. Otherwise, you may wait a very long time. A slack hand causes poverty, but the hand of the diligent makes rich. Proverbs 10:4 The Rev. Mark Broadhead is Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Crestviews pastor. REV. MARK BROADHEADFrom the PulpitDaily ways to focus on your relationship with GodBy MATTHEW BROWN682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Jeff Childers hopes younger generations will gain a newfound respect for marriage, which, for his ock, means waiting to say I do before having sex. The First Baptist Church of Crestviews youth pastor has scheduled a Feb. 12 True Love Waits conference to help spread the message. Debby and Jeff McElroy, a Tennessee couple who have been married 29 years, will be the featured guest speakers. Their mission is to lift up the brand of marriage ... to inspire this generation to see marriage can be better than what the 60s generation turned it into, Jeff McElroy said. Waiting to have sex has a purpose, Childers said. Abstinence, the McElroys said, can take the focus off the relationships physical nature and make a relationship stronger, which is crucial when troubles arise after the couple marry. If the marriage crumbles, everything else goes with it the family, the strength of the kids, and the stability of the culture, Jeff McElroy, referring to sex-based relationships, contended. (We) want teens to know that dreams can come true if we are willing to wait, and that the wait is worth it, Debby McElroy said. The conference will feature live music, provided by local churches, and free food. The McElroys said they hope attendees will hear their message, learn lessons from their marriage and take it to heart.

We are thrilled to ll the stomachs of hungry children who would have to otherwise go hungry at school, the Burchetts report stated. The Small Acts of Kindness Street Ministry distributed more than 2,880 peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches, 1,500 bags of water and many Bibles to the homeless on the streets of Belize City. The ministry also sought help for an elderly blind man who with medical care has recovered some of his sight. The Surrender Youth Rally Ministry helped sponsor youth rallies throughout the country, focusing on smaller villages and remote areas where kids cant get to events at larger communities. The Burchetts credited their ministries successes to supporters back in Crestview, Heath Burchetts home in Clemmons, N.C., and elsewhere.

And last week, she noticed the rising cost in her electricity bill almost twice as much to power her three-bedroom, two-bath home. That was a shock, she said, because she frequently used her replace throughout the cold weather.Payment in penniesI normally pay my bills ... I have a list of everything I have to pay, Reynolds said. I calculate the light bill to be about $140 (on average). Thats what I had a credit union check for. But when I got the light bill, it was $225. So she took matters into her own hands. That meant getting $173 in pennies from Eglin Federal Credit Union and $50 in pennies from the local teachers credit union, and footing the rest of the bill with cash on hand. I took it (the package of pennies) home, unwrapped it and took it back to pay my light bill, and they refused to pay it, she said. That surprised Reynolds, who noted that Crestviews Gulf Power Company ofce has a sign that says cash, money order and checks are acceptable payment methods. I had no idea, no earthly idea that they would not take my money, she said, adding she brought reading material to pass the time while a clerk counted the change. Jeff Rogers, Gulf Powers corporate communications manager, said that wasnt an option because of the amount. As a courtesy to the other customers, we ask that customers have large amounts of change rolled up, he said. Life changes new challenges Reynolds said much has changed since 2007, when her husband, Charles, died. Life was good before he died ... I didnt have things to worry about, she said. But now that its me, I have to watch every cent. Reynolds worked in sewing factories and cosmetology before experiencing sickness that required her to have a bone marrow transplant. Most recently, she worked in laundry services on Eglin Air Force Base, she said. Now, her working days are over, and that makes paying bills a problem. She draws Social Security disability bene ts and smaller VA bene ts because she and her husband divorced each other before remarrying for just a few more years before he died. Tricare helps, but with doctors as close as Crestview and as far away as Pensacola, Birmingham, Ala., and North Carolina, travel expenses, on top of everything else, are concerns. Todays her deadline to pay the power bill in an acceptable payment method, and shell do that, she said. But if its not one thing, its another. Soon as I think Im getting over something, something else comes up with her health, she said. Bills thats where my money goes. Staff Writer Matthew Brown contributed to this report.

Y www.fnbcrestview.com Special to the News BulletinA Crestview Exceptional Student Education classroom assistant has been named second runner-up for the Okaloosa County School Districts Education Support Professional of the Year. Bernice Harrington, who has been at Southside Center four years, assists the teacher in instructional, behavioral, medical, academic and any other needs of the students. It is very rare that you will nd an individual more dedicated or compassionate than Bernice Harrington, said Debra Haan, Southside Center administrator. ... Bernice constantly seeks new and unique ways to assist Mrs. Rainer with the children in her pre-kindergarten disabilities classroom. She has stepped in multiple times this year (and last) while Mrs. Rainer was experiencing health issues to take over the classroom instruction responsibilities. Bernice is able to take Mrs. Rainers lesson plans and lead the children through the standards that have been laid out. She keeps their routines and procedures constant, which is a high need in PreKD. Further, Haan said, Mrs. Harrington has the ability to make anyone smile! It is a gift one that very few people possess. I have seen her turn the outcome of someones day just by her smile and wit. Even when she is experiencing a dif cult situation in her own life, she will bring joy and comfort to others before herself.

EDUCATION www.crestviewbulletin.comWednesday, February 5, 2014 Page A8 CAMPUS REPORT Rezoning OKd for Bob Sikes and Walker Elementary schoolsThe Okaloosa County School Board has unanimously approved a district proposal to shift zones for Bob Sikes and Walker elementary schools. The movement was proposed due to several factors, including predicted subdivision growth in the Bob Sikes zone and the amount of room each school had left for new students. Bob Sikes, at 880 students, has nearly maxed out its capacity for more children. The area has 2,000 plots ready for construction and 27 new homes on the market. Walker had 718 students at last count and space to eventually add portable classrooms.School districts grapple with storm make-up daysOkaloosa County School District leaders have a plan to deal with the three days missed because of icy weather. If approved by the School Board, the district will ask Florida Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart to waive all three days because students will have attended enough hours of class by the end of the school year to meet requirements, Deputy Superintendent Kaye McKinley said. Under state law, students must get 900 hours of instruction a year to earn credit and for the district to get state funding, McKinley said. Calculations Friday afternoon revealed the district had enough time already scheduled to make up the difference for all three days without making any calendar changes, McKinley said.NWF State College named to U.S. Top 150The Aspen Institute College Excellence Program has named Northwest Florida State College one the nations 150 top community colleges. NWF State can complete for a $1 million fund for the 2015 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence. The institute identi ed the top community colleges after assessing performance and improvement in graduation rates, degrees awarded, student retention rates and equity in student outcomes.

NWF State College is one of 15 Florida College System institutions eligible to compete for the award. The top 150 community colleges will be narrowed down to 10 nalists in September based on student persistence, completion and transfer; gains in outcomes over time; and equity in outcomes for underserved students.

College footballs National Signing Day is actually the start of a period of several weeks when a high school football player can sign with the college of his choice. It has become one of the most anticipated days on the college football calendar. But there was a time when no hoopla surrounded signing day. Back in the day, fans had to wait to see who signed with their team, as players didnt hold press conferences to tell the world they had committed to Mid State U. Signing day, which took place in December when I was in high school, was low key, with a few friends and relatives gathered in a players home to celebrate. Sometimes, a member of the media would be in attendance to chronicle the big event. My best friend, Ken Hardy, was good enough to sign with Auburn University. Ken was the rst Gulf Breeze High School football player to play at a Southeastern Conference or major conference school. In the days before cable and satellite TV, fans were fortunate to get two games a week. And it was considered a treat to see a friend or high school teammate on ABCs College Football Game of the Week. When college football broadcasting legend Keith Jackson called a players name on air, it gave credence to the athletes hard work. Everyone knows Im a Tennessee guy, but I developed a soft spot in my heart for Auburn during Kens playing days for the Tigers. I still consider Auburn my second favorite team in the SEC. It has been almost 35 years since Ken played his last game at Auburn, but at reunions, old classmates still talk about the time they attended a game and saw Ken play college football. I guess Im going to be a closet Kentucky fan now at least while Denzel plays for the Wildcats. Ill pull for Kentucky every game, with the exception being the Tennessee game. Im guessing Crestviews Big Red Country will now have a tint of Kentucky blue on Saturdays in the fall as the Bulldog faithful cheer for Denzel and the Wildcats. And as college football broadcasts have saturated the airways, local fans will be able to watch most of Denzels games at Kentucky. If I know a thing or two about human nature, and I think I do, teammates and classmates will try to get to a Kentucky game so they can witness, in person, Denzels college football journey. Ive been privileged to witness Denzels high school football journey. And Im excited for what the future holds for him. Yes, Denzel Wares college journey starts today. I wish him all the best.

The Bulldogs are in the playoffs for the rst time since 2010. And they might even get another shot at District 1-7A rival Fort Walton Beach High School. But Saturday night was the Vikings turn to shine as Fort Walton Beach beat the Bulldogs 48-41 to win the district tournament. The Bulldogs biggest obstacle was getting over the hump, Crestview Coach Kathy Combest said. Weve got to learn to win, she said. Fort Walton Beach has been in the situation before, and the players have that experience. Not a soul on our team has any district championship game experience. Combest hopes the tournament will help her team when Crestview travels to Tallahassee on Thursday for a 6 p.m. region quarter nal game at Leon. If the Bulldogs and the Vikings who host Chiles in the region quarter nal both win, the teams will play in the Feb. 11 region semi nals at Fort Walton Beach. The district nal was a battle of wills between two evenly matched teams. The Bulldogs (18-8) used their quickness and a pressure defense in jumping to a 9-2 lead at the end of the rst quarter. Jasmine Middle scored the rst Bulldog basket off an offensive rebound. Three-point baskets by Jensis Coleman and KK White, along with free throws by Arianna Simms, had the Bulldogs standing tall with eight minutes gone in the game. In a sign of things to come, the Vikings (17-9) struggled from the eld two in the rst quarter but were able to get to the free throw line eight times and hit two. Malaya Evans broke the Viking shooting slump with a 3-point basket with 7:17 left in the rst half. DeDe McLane followed with a basket to cut the Bulldog lead to 9-7. Consecutive baskets by Middle, Coleman and Simms pushed Crestviews lead back up to eight points. But the Vikings werent about to go away, as they went on an 8-0 run, tying the game at 15-15 with 52 seconds left in the half. Once again, Crestview had an answer as Simms and Coleman scored to push the Bulldog lead back to four points at the half. Though they led by four at the half, the Bulldogs struggled from the eld and shot several long 3-point attempts that came up short or rattled off the rim. Two-and-a-half minutes into the third quarter, the Crestview shooters seemed to have found their range. Coleman and Simms hit back-to-back 3s to push the Bulldog lead back to eight points. Fort Walton Beach nished the third quarter with a scoring rampage that cut the Crestview lead to 34-33. Through three quarters, the Vikings were 4 of 12 from the free line. The Vikings lived at the line in the fourth quarter, shooting 19 free throws and hitting 10. Fort Walton Beach also had a eld goal from McLane and a 3-pointer from Evans. White scored all seven of Crestviews points in the fourth quarter to nish the night with a team best 13. Coleman scored 12 for Crestview. Evans scored 16 for the Vikings, and McLane added 14. Fort Walton Beach outscored Crestview 14-2 at the free throw line. The Vikings shot 31 foul shots, and the Bulldogs shot eight. They didnt beat us on eld goals, Combest said. They beat us on free throws.

But McSweens rst win will have to wait, as the Bulldogs lost their season opener to Pace High School on Monday 4-3. The Patriots rallied from a 3-0 de cit, scoring three runs in the sixth and one in the seventh. Thats a tough way to lose the rst one, having a three-run lead, McSween said. But you have to give Pace credit. They came in the last two innings and swung it (the bat). I thought the girls played hard, and they battled all of the game. As a coach, thats what you ask for ... competitiveness. Lacy Boyd scored the game-winner on a Chelsea Patterson double. Crestview (0-1) struck rst with three runs on the bottom of the third inning. Kayla Kelch reached on a Pace error to lead off the inning. Kelch stole second base with Kelsie Dardon at the plate. Kelch took third on a Dardon single and scored the games rst run on a Kristen Bufkin double that moved Dardon to third base. It looked as if the Bulldogs were set up for a big inning with nobody out, a run in and two runners on base. But things quickly changed. A Taylor Rolison hit scored Dardon, but Bufkin was thrown out trying to score on the play. Rolison showed her aggressiveness on the base paths and took third as Bufkin was thrown out at the plate. Rolisons heads-up base running paid off when she scored as Taylor Henderson grounded out to third base for the second out of the inning. The inning ended with Kylene Day ying out to center. With Rolison in control in the pitcher circle, it looked as if the Bulldogs had the game well in hand. Rolison only allowed two hits and a walk in the rst ve innings while striking out 10. By the time the Patriots came to bat in the sixth inning, they had begun to adjust to Rolisons pitching. The rst three Pace batters in the sixth inning each got a hit. Patriot pitcher Peyton Carpenter helped her own cause with a 2-run double that scored Patterson and Chelsea Stotlman. Stotlman scored on a Savanna Allen hit to tie the game at 3-3. McSween didnt have any second thoughts about leaving Rolison in the circle for the seventh inning. I felt like Taylor pitched a great game, and it didnt go our way tonight, he said. The Bulldogs pounded out 12 hits in the loss. Rolison, who struck out 12 Patriot batters, led the Crestview offense with three hits. Kelch, Dardon and Molly Woodward each had three hits for Crestview. The Bulldogs return to action at 6 p.m. Thursday when they host Jay.

Crestview News Bulletin | B3Wednesday, February 5, 2014 Players shoot for fellowship, stars as they grow in faithBy MATTHEW BROWN682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Typically in basketball, the team tries to shoot enough baskets to score the most points. Of cials at two churches do things a little differently. Central Baptist and Live Oak Baptist churches Upward Basketball and Cheerleading league, for kindergartners through sixth-graders, offers stars on the court, and points. They have different stars (attached to their uniforms): One is (for) offense, one is defense, said Coach Andrew Slentz, who works with The Jazz, a group of thirdand fourth-grade boys and girls. Then they have a white (star), which is for Christ-like. That star is the biggest difference, Live Oak Pastor Jerry Nelson said. The unique thing about this league is that we get to spread the word of God, he said. Its an opportunity to get out and have fun playing basketball and, more importantly, teach some scripture. That happens during half-time. Nelson delivered a brief, inspirational message during a recent Saturday game. There are other differences between Upward and other North Okaloosa teams. Upward allows children in the same age range, regardless of sex, to play together, said Kristy Larkins, Central Baptists Recreational Outreach Center Kid Care director. Play, not compete, is the key word. This is not a competitive league, she said. They all get the equal amount of playing time. It helps develop their character and con dence, Nelson said. The leagues nal games take place March 15 with an awards ceremony the next Monday. Call 682-5525 for details. SportsBy RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com LAUREL HILL In what might have been a symbolic changing of the guard, Laurel Hill School sophomore Cameron Gordon hit a 3-point basket with 19 seconds left in Fridays game, giving the Hoboes a 52-49 win over Rocky Bayou Christian School. Cameron Gordon wow, he came off the bench there at the end, and he stepped up, Hobo Coach Kent Zessin said. He played JV all year, and we just brought him up. Hes one of my better shooters. Josh Hartzog, Lane Strickland, Travis Johnson and William Rorech were honored in a Senior Night ceremony before the game. Rocky Bayou spent the next 32 minutes trying to spoil the regular season home nale for the Hobo seniors. Josh Bryant, Chris Matthews, Josh Preston and Kyle Wilson each scored for Rocky Bayou in the rst ve minutes of play. The only Laurel Hill points in the rst ve minutes came on a pair of Strickland free throws as the Knights jumped in front 8-2. A Strickland dunk with 2:01 left in the quarter cut the Knight lead to 8-4. Laurel Hill (16-8) trailed by at least four points until late in the fourth quarter. Several factors, including Senior Night and missing several days of practice because of the ice storm, contributed to Laurel Hills sluggish play, Zessin said. It was a combination of everything, he said. Our shooting percentage had to be under 20 for the night. We couldnt throw in the ocean in the rst half. It could have gotten ugly, but the defense kept us in it. The Hoboes couldnt wrestle the lead from the Knights, but Laurel Hill stayed within striking distance. Rocky Bayou pushed the lead to nine points on several occasions but couldnt get the lead to double digits. The Knights lead was nine at 43-34, with 5:41 left in the game after a Kyle Wilson free throw. A Hartzog free throw trimmed a point off the Rocky lead and triggered a 13-4 Hobo run. Bryson Cooper scored a layup on an assist from Hartzog after a steal, and the Hoboes were off and running. Cooper, Hartzog, Strickland and Max Smith all scored during the run. Tee Calloway hit two free throws with 1:48 left in the fourth quarter to give the Hoboes their rst lead of the night at 49-48. Twenty-one seconds later, Bryant hit a free throw to tie the game at 49-49, setting up the heroics by Gordon. Gordons game-winning 3pointer was the only shot from beyond the arch the Hoboes hit in the game. As seniors Hartzog, Strickland, Rorech and Johnson left the home court for the last time in the regular season, Gordon showed why the future looks bright for the Hoboes. Strickland led the Hoboes with 21 points. Cooper and Hartzog each scored nine. Smith had six points, Calloway four and Gordon three.

Its just February, but college nancial aid of cers are already working to determine grants for the school year coming this fall. If you have children you plan on sending to college, how will your savings and investments affect their chances of getting nancial aid? The answer depends on how much money you have and where you keep it. Most colleges base their aid calculations on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which counts up to 5.64 percent of certain parent-owned assets in determining federal or state aid. FAFSA counts up to 20 percent of a childs assets, such as a UGMA or UTMA account. So, what parent-owned assets are counted when determining a students need for nancial aid? They include savings and checking accounts, non-retirement investment accounts and other types of assets. You do not have to report retirement accounts such as traditional or Roth IRAs, 401(k)s and pensions on the FAFSA. However, if you start taking withdrawals from these accounts, the withdrawals must be reported on the FAFSA as student income for the year in which transactions occurred and these withdrawals could affect your childs nancial aid package the following year. A 529 plan is one popular college-savings vehicle. If you own a 529 plan, you will need to report it on FAFSA as a parent-owned asset. But when you take withdrawals from the 529 plan, they wont be counted as parent or student income on FAFSA, and they wont incur federal income taxes, provided the money is used for quali ed higher education expenses. (If you dont use the money for these expenses, youll be taxed and potentially penalized by 10 percent on the earnings.) Because a 529 plan is counted as a parental asset on FAFSA, some people ask grandparents to own a 529 plan. But while the value of an intact grandparentcontrolled 529 plan will be excluded from FAFSA, withdrawals themselves will be counted as untaxed income to the student on the following years FAFSA, and this money could certainly affect aid decisions. At least a year before your rst child heads to college, you may want to contact the nancial aid of ce at a local school to ask questions about FAFSA, scholarships, loans and other aspects of assistance. Since most colleges and universities follow similar rules regarding nancial aid, you should be able to get some helpful answers, no matter where your child goes to school. Of course, even with careful planning, your student may not qualify for nancial aid. If this is the case, consider other strategies for paying for college. But keep this in mind: Its best to develop a savings strategy for both college savings and ones own retirement goals. So, study the nancial aid rules, consider investing in college-funding vehicles such as 529 plans, and do whatever else you can to help get your kids through school. But dont forget about your own needs because they are important, too.

50 Cent Value FREECall 682-6524 to subscribe to the Crestview News BulletinBy MATTHEW BROWN682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Rachel Simon plans to follow her mothers example. My mom decided she wanted to go to medical school, the Shoal River Middle School eighth-grader said. (Then) I started to realize that I wanted to become a surgeon. The 14-year-old already knows her dream career path. I want to start as a general surgeon and eventually become a heart surgeon and practice internal medicine, she said. Rachels getting the experience she needs from Okaloosa Countys Science Students Together Reaching Instructional Diversity and Excellence program. Crestview High School and Davidson and Shoal River Middle Schools have offered the Florida State University College of Medicine program which includes lab work, community service opportunities and eld trips since 2003. Rachel was among 62 of SSTRIDEs latest middle and high school students in-ducted into the program during a Jan. 27 ceremony. Students must have a 3.0 grade point average, no disciplinary referrals, regular attendance and they must pass an application and interview process. Watching her grow up from a child to a woman and knowing that she is going into the (medical) profession it brings me joy, Franco Simon, Rachels father, said. I didnt have this opportunity growing up. I tell my children to seize the moment ... the sky is the limit. Shanice Bernard, a CHS and Davidson graduate, is learning just that. Shes studying at FSU pursuing a degree in the medical eld, for which she credits SSTRIDE. Being part of this program provided me with the support system that I needed, she said. Sponsors help support the support system, Penny Eubanks, SSTRIDEs Okaloosa County coordinator, said. North Okaloosa Medical Center stepped into fund the groups March eld trip to FSUs chemistry department, she said. But more help is needed. Okaloosa SSTRIDE needs the communitys help to fund 26 $250 scholarships for CHS seniors who complete the program, Eubanks said. Every year since we have had this class, we have given each (SSTRIDE) student a $250 scholarship, she said. These students will use this for college. Eubanks said her busy schedule prevented her from organizing fundraisers this year. However, this is something I would like to continue to do (for students), she said.

The like-new prefabricated skate park equipment, including ramps and lighting, was put in place by a government agency that then didnt want them, Public Works Director Wayne Steele said. Anthony Hemphill, whose family periodically donates equipment to regional municipalities, made the offer last week, and has extended tomorrows original deadline because of the storm, Steele said. City leaders, who would formally vote on the matter during a later public meeting, would have to approve stormwater management systems and electrical work for the proposed Twin Hills Park site and pay $55,000 to install the equipment. The park would be access-controlled by swipe cards issued after users signed waivers or, in the case of minors, had them signed by their parents, Steele said.CRA funding availableIn January 2013, a skate park and dog park were proposed as Community Redevelopment Agency-funded improvements. CRA money would be used for the citys match toward the Hemphills donation if approved, Steele said. Steele advised the council that changes in state statutes allow municipalities to classify skate parks as recreational facilities on par with sports elds and youth and adult athletic programs. The Florida League of Cities includes skate parks under a municipalitys general insurance policy, Steele said. Were getting $175,000 of equipment (with installation) for $55,000, Councilman Tom Gordon said. I think its ridiculous if we let this go. I am very much in agreement to accept something like this if we have a guarantee the equipment is what he says it is, Councilman Joe Blocker said.Gift horse or Trojan horse?Be cautious, please, that a gift horse is not a Trojan horse in disguise, Miller said. Our systems are in place to protect cost and product. While City Clerk Betsy Roy said city purchasing guidelines require the project to be sent out for bid, Steele said his research found the city could never nd skate park equipment for $55,000. Steele said he would do more research into the condition of the equipment and the Hemphill familys donations to other communities. Steele said Hemphill would accept a consensus up until the equipment, which is currently in Georgia, is crated and ready to be transported. I hope we can work it out with the family and make it happen, because it would be so sad if we couldnt, Steele said. We may have time to work out an answer for them.SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETINPrefabricated skateboard park equipment, such as these shown in an unidenti ed community park, has been offered to Crestview.City offered skate park equipmentWere getting $175,000 of equipment for $55,000.

The Helping Other People Effectively Network would establish transitional housing and a permanent shelter here, if it reaches its goals. HOPE leader Ann Sprague said she plans to meet with local bank ofcials to learn about foreclosed homes, although the organization would accept donations for a house and contractor services. Its the next step in helping needy North Okaloosa residents, she said. HOPE members gather monthly to coordinate soup kitchens and cold weather shelters. Representatives of Crestviews First United Methodist Church, First Presbyterian Church in Crestview and the Journey Church said the need has increased. We can see it growing; of course, a lot of it has to do with the economy, Ed Kitchen, of First Presbyterian, said. Sean Peters, pastor at the Journey Church, said attendance at their soup kitchen has grown steadily since the service opened last May. We had around 30 (people), on average, and then in the summer we had an average of 90 to 100, he said. Since then the numbers have tapered off to around 75. Many individuals who visit the area soup kitchens are not homeless, Jo-An Williams, of First Presbyterian, said. The majority comes from people on a xed-income or (those using) food stamps, she said. Regardless of whom they help or how they help them, working together is crucial. I think this is so important for the community, Peters said. The fact that churches are working together in the community to make something happen every day of the week ... to feed people and bring them out from the cold, he said. Its a really good thing and I am excited that we are a part of it. HOPE is always open to gaining new members, regardless of religious af liation, Sprague said. Anybody is welcome, she said. We are trying to nd any opportunity to help the community. MATTHEW BROWN | News BulletinThe Helping Other People Effectively Network comprises representatives from several area churches.

Churches seek community support for housing initiative I once read this saying: Life is meant to be lived not feared, sold nor sweated. Fear not death. Fear the unlived life. It sticks in my mind as I mourn the loss of Maudy Carper, a long-time Laurel Hill resident. Maudy, who died this past weekend, was a friend to many. But to me, she and her husband, Tom, the long-time love of her life, were aunt and uncle. My family lived next door to them when I was growing up. They were classmates at Laurel Hill School with my father and soon became close friends with my mother. Then again, Maudy was friends with anybody. She would welcome you in no matter when you dropped by for a cold drink on a hot day or something hot to eat on a cold one. If you needed help or wanted to hang out, she was the rst to volunteer. Maudy just loved people and was always surrounded by them. Last year, Maudy began to have health problems. Through her frequent hospital stays and various treatments, Tom and her loving daughter, Kim, along with countless other family and friends, stood by her side. This past year has been especially dif cult as we watched her inch closer to time to leave us. Now, she has joined other loved ones in heaven. Of course, we will greatly miss her but we nd comfort in knowing shes no longer hurting. Instead, shes watching over us from a better place. And, as the saying said, she lived life.

ExtraCrestview News Bulletin | A3 By RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com FORT WALTON BEACH Dont look now, but Crestview High Schools girls basketball team is playing for the District 1-7A championship. Bulldog junior point guard Jensis Coleman was at her best with the District 1-7A girls seminal basketball game on the line Thursday night. Coleman scored 13 of her game high 26 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Bulldogs to a 51-42 win over Niceville at Fort Walton Beach High Schools Viking Gymnasium. Crestview (18-7) will meet Fort Walton Beach in the tournament championship game at 7 p.m. tonight at Fort Walton Beach. The win also assured the Bulldogs a spot in the state playoffs that start next week. Powered by six points from Coleman and four from Jasmine Middleton, the young Bulldog team jumped to a 13-0 lead six minutes into the game. At that point it looked as the equally young Eagle squad might be doomed. A Jessie Day basket followed by a Michaela Mitchell 3-pointer pulled Niceville to within 13-5 and gave the Eagles (14-11) some much needed momentum. Jaci Hodskins scored six points in the second quarter to lead the Eagle charge as Niceville went on a 16-6 run. A pair of Hodskins free throws with 22 seconds left in the rst half gave Niceville its rst lead at 21-20. But the momentum swung back to Crestview when Bulldog freshman KK White hit a 3-pointer as the half ended, giving Crestview a 23-21 lead at the break. They got a little rattled and I just had to settle them down and tell them not to get back (down) and play our game, Bulldog Coach Kathy Combest. Nice-villes so big they did give us some problems, but we adjusted and regained our composure. We knew we had to beat Niceville to play Fort Walton again. And we to play Fort Walton to make it known that we are a basketball team too. Nicevilles zone defense bothered Crestview throughout much of the game, but the Bulldogs still found themselves on top 30-24 with just more than a minute left in the third quarter. Back-to-back Day 3-pointers were followed by back-to-back scores by Hodskins as the Eagles ran off 10 unanswered points in a span of 76 seconds. Hodskins second basket of the run came 16 seconds into the fourth quarter and gave the Eagles their largest lead of the night at four points. Coleman and her Bulldog teammates then went to work using a pressure defense to grind out the win down the stretch. I feel like Crestview is coming back (to being a force in girls basketball), Middleton said. Thats all you can say. We always have to stay together. We might be down, but we can always come back. As long as we stay together and do what we are capable of well be OK. With 26 points, Coleman was the only Bulldog in double gures. White added nine points and Middleton eight in the win. Day topped Niceville with 16 points. Hodskins had 14 points and Mitchell scored eight.Bulldogs advance to nals NWFSC Improves Lives! eousn Hpey OnitummCo eousn Hpey OnitummCo eousn Hpey OnitummCo eousn Hpey OnitummCo eousn Hpey OnitummCo

Raiders Commodores Activities Wednesday, February 5, 2014NICK TOMECEK | Daily NewsCrestview High Schools K.K. White shoots for three against Nicevilles Amanda Wilson on Thursday at Fort Walton Beach High School. Bulldogs looking for respectBy RANDY DICKSON682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com FORT WALTON BEACH While Crestview High School girls basketball Coach Kathy Combest preaches one game at a time to her players, she always thinks ahead. Long before the Bulldogs beat Niceville 51-42 in the District 1-7A tournament seminals, Combest was preparing for the win and a showdown with top seed Fort Walton Beach in tonights 7 p.m. tournament championship game. It was no accident that Crestview (18-7) played at Fort Walton Beach on Jan. 11. That scheduling was part of Combests plan, as she knew the tournament championship game would be played on a Saturday at Fort Walton Beach. I didnt schedule us to play Fort Walton Beach at their place on a Saturday because it was the only date open, she said. I wanted to make it as real life as possible, thinking it was (the Vikings) who we were going to play (in the tournament championship). We knew coming into the tournament that this was the matchup we would probably get (in the nals). We had to beat Niceville (in the seminals) to get Fort Walton, and we (had) to play Fort Walton again to make it known that we are a good basketball team too. Combest said Crestviews 73-66 win that night surprised some people. But the win also was another step in the growing process for a young Bulldog squad. That was an upset for us to beat them, but you dont want it to be an upset now, Combest said. We won it because we were ready to play. Thats what I want them thinking. We are going to play our game, play hard and let the cards be where they are. Combest believes the Bulldogs match up with the Vikings better physically than they did with the Eagles, but she said Fort Walton Beach has an advantage that cant be physically measured. They are fast and were fast, she said. We match up them (athletically), but Fort Walton is a very mature and established team. Win or lose tonight, the Bulldogs are headed to the regional quarternals next week. And whatever the outcome of the game, Combest is simply looking for one thing. Crestview has never had that respect (as a basketball school), Combest said. Hopefully we will gain that respect.

Relay For Life will be at 6 p.m. April 25 at Shoal River Middle School in Crestview. CRESTVIEW — The American Cancer Society is more than $7,000 closer to a cure after Saturday’s Davidson Dash 5K/10K. “The numbers are not nal, but preliminary numbers look like $7,500, give or take $100,” event organizer Daniel Richards said. Almost 300 participants ran the race or signed up for a silent auction to win door prizes donated by local businesses. Ultimately, they remembered loved ones and neighbors touched by cancer. “It’s a cause that is near to our hearts,” said Crestview resident Suzi Gaszak, who ran with her 13-year-old son, Jonah. “My mom had cancer several years ago and passed away.” Gaszak’s mother, Shelby Seymour, died from breast cancer in 1989. Although cancer treatments have progressed a long way since then, Gaszak would love for there to be a cure. “Now you have a good chance of survival; back then it was almost a death sentence, and that’s why I want to see an end to this,” she said. Niceville resident Blake Sparks said she enjoys running 5Ks, but particularly appreciates the cause of this one. “I just ran to support the cause,” she said. “Raising money for the ght against cancer is an important cause.” Running the Dash was a way to honor loved ones with cancer while having the added bene t of exercise, said Trevor Bryant, 15. “It’s fun,” he said. “Everybody can get out and have a good time.” Former Crestview pastor’s Belize mission makes a difference By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com When the Rev. Heath Burchett announced in 2008 he’d been called to another church, First United Methodist Church members were heartbroken. However, loss of the church’s young youth minister and associate pastor and his energetic wife, Amanda, was another ministry’s gain. Since leaving Crestview, the Burchetts have been building a mission the couple founded in Belize City, Belize. Heath Burchett said taking a First United Methodist youth mission trip to the former British Honduras — Central America’s only English-speaking country — earlier in 2008 led to God’s call for the couple to return and begin their Belize Habit Missions. “We were greatly disturbed by the lack of youth involvement in the local church, and yet hundreds of teens were only blocks away hanging out, playing sports and using drugs,” Amanda Burchett wrote on the mission’s website. “We began to research youth involvement in the life of the local churches in various towns and villages, and what we found was a great need,” she wrote. Today, the ministry has more than 30 volunteers and supports several churches in Belize City and nearby communities. After six years of hard work and countless hours of volunteer help, the couple were upbeat as they shared a report on the 2013 successes of their advocacy for the homeless and youth through several ministries. Highlights are as follows: • The Cayo Community Youth Ministry drew 90 teens to youth rallies, gatherings and a Christmas party. The mission sponsored the education of Rose, a young girl who received her school uniform, meals and transportation to and from school. • The Feed the (Pickney) Children ministry began two new school food programs in the Pickney community, for a total of three DANIEL RICHARDS Dash organizer INSIDE See more photos from the Davidson Dash 5K/10K on Page A5 and at www. crestviewbulletin. com/photos PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN Students at a Belize City school receive nourishing lunches from a ministry founded by a former Crestview youth minister and his wife. HOW TO HELP The Rev. Heath and Amanda Burchett seek support for their Belize Habit Missions. “Please prayerfully consider your involvement, prayers and support,” they requested in their annual report. Gifts, payable to Belize Habit Missions, may be sent to 732 La Vale Drive, Clemmons, NC 27012-9042. Davidson Dash raises more than 7K for cancer research Volunteers with a street ministry founded by the Rev. Heath and Amanda Burchett pray with a homeless man on the streets of Belize City.

The Crestview woman has noticed the increasing costs of household products. “Ever since they’ve (the children) been little, I’ve used Scott tissue,” she said. “The tissue rolls are not as big as they used to be, and they’re shorter than what they used to be. Everything’s been cut down but the price.” Then there’s dishwashing detergent. “They cut the ounces down, and the bottle looks real cute, but it’s smaller — and you’re paying more,” she said. Small grocery bill spikes paled in comparison to the house insurance, which increased $200 per month this year, taking half her income, she said. INSIDE See commentary on this issue, Page A4 Crestview woman pays with pennies to battle bill blues THOMAS BONI | News Bulletin Deborah Reynolds-Nash, pictured Friday in the News Bulletin of ce, tried to pay Gulf Power Company with $223 in unrolled pennies last week after receiving an unexpectedly large bill.

CAROL STROM | Special to the News Bulletin By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW — Terell Burgess appreciates getting AARP volunteers’ free tax ling advice at the Crestview Public Library. “It is very bene cial coming to the library, rather than going to somewhere else and spending $50 and $100,” he said. “I highly recommend this to other people.” Volunteers will assist lowto moderate-income residents four days a week through April 15. Many residents from North Okaloosa and parts of southern Alabama have traveled to Crestview just to get their taxes ready for the IRS, second-year volunteer Irene Maier said. Volunteers say a growing number of area residents seek assistance. ‘”It has increased over the years,” 11-year volunteer Louise Eastridge said. Each volunteer receives a week of training, either in person or online, and must pass an Internal Revenue Service test, certifying them as tax preparation counselors. Depending on the number of people who sign in and the complexity of their tax returns, Eastridge said volunteers try to see as many people as they can between each period. But their help is in limited supply. “We have to cut it off at some point,” she said.

G OVERNMENT www.crestviewbulletin.com Wednesday, Febraury 5, 2014 Page A3 By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW — Hiring two in-house part-time workers to assist a full-time employee with the city’s janitorial services would cost the city $48,000, a recommendation the City Council unanimously approved. The lowest bid the city received to perform janitorial services was Executive Cleaning’s $55,402, but the city could save money by performing the work, Public Works Director Wayne Steele said. Prorating the in-house amount to cover the scal year’s remaining eight months will cost the city $23,789, which Steele said is $21,779 less than the remaining budgeted $45,568. The part-time employees will receive a starting hourly wage ranging between $9.70 and $10.28, depending on the employee’s quali cations and experience, and no bene ts except for FICA and workers’ compensation. During budget discussions, Crestview Fire Department re ghters opted to clean their re stations, except for administration areas, to save taxpayer money. Health takes focus of Feb. 12 Government Issues Committee meeting Mental health and wellness are hot topics for next week’s Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce Government Issues Committee meeting. Ginny Barr, the Mental Health Association of Okaloosa and Walton Counties’ executive director, will speak about local health care resources, how to help family members and how to support the organization’s goals. The meeting, a joint session with the Health and Wellness Committee, is 8:30 a.m. Feb. 12 at the chamber, 1447 Commerce Drive, Crestview. Statistics suggest: • Women are twice as likely to have an anxiety disorder as men • The typical age of onset of social anxiety disorder is 13. Thirty-six percent of people with this disorder report symptoms for 10 or more years before seeking help • Sixty-percent of people exposed to mass violence (like war) have been shown to develop post traumatic stress disorder. • About 6 million American adults experience panic disorder in a given year.

I met Deborah Reynolds-Nash on Friday afternoon when most of our news team had left the building for a well-deserved break from non-stop reporting on the winter storm. Renee, our editorial assistant, and I were tying up loose ends, posting stories on the web and preparing for the next week’s production. That was when Melissa, our media sales consultant, peeked in my of ce and said, “There’s someone here to see you. She has a complaint.” That’s unusual, I thought. But I took deep breaths, headed toward the reception area and braced myself for the unknown. As it happened, the complaint had to do with a power bill. I sat down to listen to Deborah’s story, about how she felt she was overcharged and how she brought $223 in pennies to Crestview’s Gulf Power of ce. She wondered if she could write a letter to the editor or somehow express a grievance in the News Bulletin. Anyone who knows me knows I try to tell it like it is. I’ll tell you, “I’m human — perfectionist to a fault but prone to error,” which I think is more respectable than libustering for years before issuing a correction about something minimal. Similarly, I’ll tell you, respectfully, what I think of your story. “This is an unusual story — and I’d like to tell it,” I told Deborah. “But I don’t think this is a problem-withGulf-Power story. They have the right to set and change their business practices. I believe this story is much larger than that. It tells of the struggles many people are experiencing in this economy.” Still, you don’t see seven bags containing thousands of pennies every day. It’s an unusual story for this area. And it brought the most unusual photo opportunity I can recall. Honestly, how often do you handle someone else’s money? Especially when it’s a signi cant amount? For some people, money is a personal matter; it should be handled with care and it is meant to be spent wisely. As Deborah defended her decision to buy Scott toilet tissue over the generic brand that doesn’t last as long, and said she used the replace — now mere decoration for many households that trade higher power bills for convenience — I knew we shared similar values. Her penny plan was understandable. Not necessarily justi able — that’s not for me to say — but understandable. If your bill is higher than expected, sometimes the only option is to pay. So some people civilly express dissatisfaction with that. People like Julann Roe in Dade City, who in November paid her $11,075.44 property tax bill in $1 bills and pennies, according to the Tampa Bay Times; Larry Gasper in Redding, Calif., who paid nearly $15,000 in late property taxes last year with two buckets full of coins and cash, according to ABC News; and a number of others, from England to China, who apparently wanted to send a message. Right or wrong, such symbolic acts are becoming a trend, and say a lot about the shape our economy is in. What’s your view?

TEEN SHOOTING WASN’T ACCIDENTAL No such thing as an accidental discharge. Negligent discharge. Jamie Parkin MLK POSTER ON CONFEDERATE FLAG A MISGUIDED PROTEST As a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, I am embarrassed at the misuse of Dr. King’s image. He was, in my eyes, a hero — just like the brave men who fought and bled for that ag. His actions, like the Confederate soldiers, were vili ed by some in their own time, but history has come to show that the cause was just. It is only sad that someone thought this was an act of protest... The battle ag of the (Army of Northern Virginia) has been misused by the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and other hate groups. It has caused those of us who revere the ag, and the soldiers who followed this brave banner, to try to educate those that would disparage the ag for the actions of the people who misused it. I, in no way, defend atrocities committed by those (people). What they have done has desecrated a ag that is worthy of nothing but honor as a symbol of men struggling to preserve a representative republic (for) which their fathers and grandfathers risked all to found 80 years before. David Maddex CRESTVIEW’S ANIMAL CONTROL ORDINANCE SHOULD ALLOW CHICKENS (Many) communities are now allowing homeowners to own a few chickens for eggs and pest control. I’m not talking about roosters which wake you, but hens who don’t crow. I wrote (a city council member) and didn’t even get a reply on this issue. Very disappointed! Silvia Clem Womack GRAVE VANDALS CROSS A LINE Is this yet another grave (theft)? I don’t care if you’re a punk prankster. You’re crossing the line here. Jon Bell ENJOYED NEWS BULLETIN’S STORM RECAP VIDEO I drove up to Crestview on Wednesday from Fort Pierce to nd glistening trees, sparkling grass and sheer shine within your town. Your video captured it. You did miss the lengthy delays on Route 90, but I didn’t. And actually enjoyed seeing that part of the state. Nice video. Anne Dougherty Thompson EDITH GENDRON Central Florida Brain Bank Health care professionals have the expertise to know what is best for patients and must have access to a full range of therapeutic options to use as they see t. They should not be burdened with administrative obstacles as they seek the most appropriate therapy. Health care professionals, not bureaucrats, should determine the best course of treatment and medications for their patients. I have been prescribed Victoza to treat Type II diabetes. Upon transfer to a new insurance company, I couldn’t obtain a re ll in a timely manner because of their determination that this medication needed preauthorization. I couldn’t afford the medication, and couldn’t purchase it and wait for reimbursement, which left me with no medication for two weeks. A few months later, I attempted to obtain a re ll and was told another pre-authorization was required. Pre-authorization for medication, especially when it has already been in use, is not a sensible use of health care dollars. Balance is needed. Policies must not only take into account immediate costs but also recognize that proper, early treatment of a disease can ward off future, more costly treatments such as hospitalization. When a physician prescribes medication, the insurer should not be able to refuse to cover that prescription until a patient tries and fails on a cheaper alternative not prescribed by the doctor. We need to seize the opportunity this legislative session to ensure that our system sets the standard for continuity of care, formulary requirements and access to medicines and therapy. Many Floridians face barriers to care when dealing with their health. We should focus on making it easier for people to care for their health, removing unnecessary obstacles that could deter patients from following necessary and costsaving drug therapies. Access restrictions can prohibit a provider from prescribing what they believe is the best therapy option for a patient. For example, these patients need to know there is a clear and convenient process to quickly request and override any step therapy or failrst protocol if a doctor determines that a drug on the standard managed care protocol will not work, or could even worsen a patient’s condition. A physician should not have to wade through bureaucratic red tape to have the more appropriate treatment covered by an insurance company. Instead, there should be a clear and convenient process to request an override when it is medically necessary for a patient to have an alternative, more appropriate, treatment. My physician has been treating me for 10 years. She knows what my diagnoses are, and how to best treat and cure those illnesses that can be cured. To have her excellent care disrupted by health insurance policy, with no provision for emergency backup, is unconscionable and unacceptable. Health insurance companies need to apply the same policies and procedures across the board. It should not be a matter of each company deciding to manipulate medical information to further their own pro t. Individuals should be responsible for their own health. And these patients should be able to work with their physicians to determine the best course of medication, rather than having bureaucrats make the nal decisions on the most appropriate treatment options. We support the Florida Legislature’s efforts to strengthen and improve vital patient access.

F AITH www.crestviewbulletin.com Wednesday, February 5, 2014 Page A6 FROM THE PULPIT This week I am providing you with ve daily devotions for your re ection and prayer. Some may t with circumstances in your life, some may not. Either way, remember to focus your heart and thoughts on God. DAY ONE How well do you remember God during the course of your day? It might be easy during quiet times. But what about while you are driving in slow traf c, or while standing in a long check-out line, or dealing with an impatient child? These are times when God needs to be remembered — not shoved aside. When remembering God, you will be able to recognize the peace he offers in the middle of any situation. “Evening and morning and at noon I utter my complaint and moan, and he will hear my voice.” — Psalm 55:17 DAY TWO I wonder if the warning system God has placed within us — our conscience — is losing its effect on people’s lives. I’m not talking about everyone, but a growing number of people around this country. The growing attitude of, “I don’t care how my actions affect another person, I’m doing or getting whatever I want,” seems to be taking over by leaps and bounds. This mindset goes against God’s desire for us to be mindful of other people. It negates treating others with the same kind of respect we would hope to receive in return. Remember, it is not God who has softened the warning system. It is we who are becoming calloused to its warnings and necessities. “Therefore I do my best always to have a clear conscience toward God and all people.” — Acts 24:15 DAY THREE The tongue doesn’t weigh much, but it carries great weight. It takes great strength to hold your tongue. I have seen people turn red in the face while holding it. And when it is not held in the heat of an emotional struggle or argument, it will do great damage. It may cause irreparable harm. Do your utmost to bridle your tongue. Do your utmost to not brag and boast in order to make yourself look fantastic in the eyes of others. Such unbridled words may have serious unintended consequences. “So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great exploits. How great a forest is set ablaze by a small re!” — James 3:5 DAY FOUR Do you need assistance in turning around an issue in your life? Ask God for help. Do you desire to know God’s loving grace more deeply? Ask God to reveal more to you. Do you long to know you are loved and accepted by God? Ask God to enter your heart and open yourself to him. God rarely imposes himself on anyone. And when God does, he always allows for a person to reject or accept his offer. It is only when we ask that we will receive. And when we ask, God will come in. “Listen! I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with me.” — Revelation 3:20 DAY FIVE How often do you wish God would do something for you? Perhaps you desire new clothing, but can’t quite afford it, or perhaps there is a new shing rod that caught your eye. Perhaps you are wanting to feel less lonely or insecure. Do you ask God to provide what you want and then sit back and wait for God to drop it into your lap? Often, when we ask something from God, he wants to know what we are going to do to play a part in achieving that desire. If you ask something from God, be sure to let him know the role you anticipate playing in the attaining of it. Otherwise, you may wait a very long time. “A slack hand causes poverty, but the hand of the diligent makes rich.” — Proverbs 10:4 The Rev. Mark Broadhead is Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Crestview’s pastor. REV. MARK BROADHEAD From the Pulpit Daily ways to focus on your relationship with God By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW — Jeff Childers hopes younger generations will gain a newfound respect for marriage, which, for his ock, means waiting to say “I do” before having sex. The First Baptist Church of Crestview’s youth pastor has scheduled a Feb. 12 “True Love Waits” conference to help spread the message. Debby and Jeff McElroy, a Tennessee couple who have been married 29 years, will be the featured guest speakers. Their mission is to “lift up the brand of marriage ... to inspire this generation to see marriage can be better than what the ’60s generation turned it into,” Jeff McElroy said. Waiting to have sex has a purpose, Childers said. Abstinence, the McElroys said, can take the focus off the relationship’s physical nature and make a relationship stronger, which is crucial when troubles arise after the couple marry. “If the marriage crumbles, everything else goes with it — the family, the strength of the kids, and the stability of the culture,” Jeff McElroy, referring to sex-based relationships, contended. “(We) want teens to know that dreams can come true if we are willing to wait, and that the wait is worth it,” Debby McElroy said. The conference will feature live music, provided by local churches, and free food. The McElroys said they hope attendees will hear their message, learn lessons from their marriage and take it to heart. By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW — Kyra Crowson, Exodos Ministries’ admissions director, needs donations for a bene t dinner next month. Whether it is a basketful of goods or a coupon — like for a free car wash or haircut — Crowson said she’d appreciate having it for silent and verbal auctions during the sixth annual Exodos Dinner and Auction. The March 17 event at Woodlawn Baptist Church is free to those who “have a heart” for the Christian substance abuse rehabilitation ministry, she said. Food, cooked by those involved in the ministry, will be served. Donations and support are important because “we are the only place in our area that does anything like this,” Crowson said. And Exodos apparently is in demand. The ministry is relocating its residential facility from north Crestview to Baker. Crowson said the move would allow them to more than double the number of men they can help, from seven to 15. March 16 is the deadline to donate items, Crowson said. All contributions are tax deductible. All proceeds bene t the ministry, particularly with utility costs and assisting families of men in the program. KYRA CROWSON WANT TO GO?

The ministry also sought help for an elderly blind man who with medical care has recovered some of his sight. • The Surrender Youth Rally Ministry helped sponsor youth rallies throughout the country, focusing on smaller villages and remote areas where kids can’t get to events at larger communities. The Burchetts credited their ministries’ successes to supporters back in Crestview, Heath Burchett’s home in Clemmons, N.C., and elsewhere. “We continue to be strongly encouraged as our ministry continues to empower and direct our Belizean volunteers for ministry,” the Burchetts stated. “We have seen the homeless and hurting changed on the streets, and many people give their lives to Christ.” MISSION from page A1 ARREST REPORT Wednesday, February 5, 2014 Page A7 FROM STAFF REPORTS The Crestview Police Department and Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Of ce provided the following crime reports for publication.

And last week, she noticed the rising cost in her electricity bill — almost twice as much to power her three-bedroom, two-bath home. That was a shock, she said, because she frequently used her replace throughout the cold weather. Payment in pennies “I normally pay my bills ... I have a list of everything I have to pay,” Reynolds said. I calculate the light bill to be about $140 (on average). That’s what I had a credit union check for. But when I got the light bill, it was $225.” So she took matters into her own hands. That meant getting $173 in pennies from Eglin Federal Credit Union and $50 in pennies from the local teachers credit union, and footing the rest of the bill with cash on hand. “I took it (the package of pennies) home, unwrapped it and took it back to pay my light bill, and they refused to pay it,” she said. That surprised Reynolds, who noted that Crestview’s Gulf Power Company ofce has a sign that says cash, money order and checks are acceptable payment methods. “I had no idea, no earthly idea that they would not take my money,” she said, adding she brought reading material to pass the time while a clerk counted the change. Jeff Rogers, Gulf Power’s corporate communications manager, said that wasn’t an option because of the amount. “As a courtesy to the other customers, we ask that customers have large amounts of change rolled up,” he said. Life changes — new challenges Reynolds said much has changed since 2007, when her husband, Charles, died. “Life was good before he died ... I didn’t have things to worry about,” she said. “But now that it’s me, I have to watch every cent.” Reynolds worked in sewing factories and cosmetology before experiencing sickness that required her to have a bone marrow transplant. Most recently, she worked in laundry services on Eglin Air Force Base, she said. Now, her working days are over, and that makes paying bills a problem. She draws Social Security disability bene ts and smaller VA bene ts because she and her husband divorced each other before remarrying for just a few more years before he died. Tricare helps, but with doctors as close as Crestview and as far away as Pensacola, Birmingham, Ala., and North Carolina, travel expenses, on top of everything else, are concerns. Today’s her deadline to pay the power bill in an acceptable payment method, and she’ll do that, she said. But if it’s not one thing, it’s another. “Soon as I think I’m getting over something, something else comes up” with her health, she said. “Bills — that’s where my money goes.” Staff Writer Matthew Brown contributed to this report.

E DUCATION www.crestviewbulletin.com Wednesday, February 5, 2014 Page A8 CAMPUS REPORT Rezoning OK’d for Bob Sikes and Walker Elementary schools The Okaloosa County School Board has unanimously approved a district proposal to shift zones for Bob Sikes and Walker elementary schools. The movement was proposed due to several factors, including predicted subdivision growth in the Bob Sikes zone and the amount of room each school had left for new students. Bob Sikes, at 880 students, has nearly maxed out its capacity for more children. The area has 2,000 plots ready for construction and 27 new homes on the market. Walker had 718 students at last count and space to eventually add portable classrooms. School districts grapple with storm make-up days Okaloosa County School District leaders have a plan to deal with the three days missed because of icy weather. If approved by the School Board, the district will ask Florida Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart to waive all three days because students will have attended enough hours of class by the end of the school year to meet requirements, Deputy Superintendent Kaye McKinley said. Under state law, students must get 900 hours of instruction a year to earn credit and for the district to get state funding, McKinley said. Calculations Friday afternoon revealed the district had enough time already scheduled to make up the difference for all three days without making any calendar changes, McKinley said. NWF State College named to U.S. Top 150 The Aspen Institute College Excellence Program has named Northwest Florida State College one the nation’s 150 top community colleges. NWF State can complete for a $1 million fund for the 2015 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence. The institute identi ed the top community colleges after assessing performance and improvement in graduation rates, degrees awarded, student retention rates and equity in student outcomes. These colleges will now compete for the honor following a year-long research process into how well their students learn, complete degrees and get jobs with competitive wages after graduating. NWF State College is one of 15 Florida College System institutions eligible to compete for the award. The top 150 community colleges will be narrowed down to 10 nalists in September based on student persistence, completion and transfer; gains in outcomes over time; and equity in outcomes for underserved students. Winners will be announced in early 2015. Florida Prepaid enrollment deadline is Feb. 28 Current Florida Prepaid College Plan prices expire Feb. 28. Prices will remain unchanged from last year on the lump-sum payment schedule until the deadline.

www.crestviewbulletin.com B Section INSIDE More local news S PORTS Page 1 Wednesday, February 5, 2014 Denzel’s big day has arrived Crestview High School defensive end Denzel Ware, a longtime University of Kentucky commit, will sign his National Letter of Intent during a 10 a.m. ceremony today in the school’s media center. College football’s National Signing Day is actually the start of a period of several weeks when a high school football player can sign with the college of his choice. It has become one of the most anticipated days on the college football calendar. But there was a time when no hoopla surrounded signing day. Back in the day, fans had to wait to see who signed with their team, as players didn’t hold press conferences to tell the world they had committed to Mid State U. Signing day, which took place in December when I was in high school, was low key, with a few friends and relatives gathered in a player’s home to celebrate. Sometimes, a member of the media would be in attendance to chronicle the big event. My best friend, Ken Hardy, was good enough to sign with Auburn University. Ken was the rst Gulf Breeze High School football player to play at a Southeastern Conference or major conference school. In the days before cable and satellite TV, fans were fortunate to get two games a week. And it was considered a treat to see a friend or high school teammate on ABC’s College Football Game of the Week. When college football broadcasting legend Keith Jackson called a player’s name on air, it gave credence to the athlete’s hard work. Everyone knows I’m a Tennessee guy, but I developed a soft spot in my heart for Auburn during Ken’s playing days for the Tigers. I still consider Auburn my second favorite team in the SEC. It has been almost 35 years since Ken played his last game at Auburn, but at reunions, old classmates still talk about the time they attended a game and saw Ken play college football. I guess I’m going to be a closet Kentucky fan now — at least while Denzel plays for the Wildcats. I’ll pull for Kentucky every game, with the exception being the Tennessee game. I’m guessing Crestview’s Big Red Country will now have a tint of Kentucky blue on Saturdays in the fall as the Bulldog faithful cheer for Denzel and the Wildcats. And as college football broadcasts have saturated the airways, local fans will be able to watch most of Denzel’s games at Kentucky. If I know a thing or two about human nature, and I think I do, teammates and classmates will try to get to a Kentucky game so they can witness, in person, Denzel’s college football journey. I’ve been privileged to witness Denzel’s high school football journey. And I’m excited for what the future holds for him. Yes, Denzel Ware’s college journey starts today. I wish him all the best. Watch Denzel Ware on National Signing Day at 6 p.m. today on the “North End Zone Sports Report,” only at www.crestviewbulletin. com/video.

Each Wednesday, we will introduce you to a local high school athlete in a question-andanswer column that we hope is fun and informative. We start with Crestview High School senior girls basketball player Arianna Simms. CRESTVIEW — Arianna Simms is one of two seniors on a Crestview High School girls basketball team loaded with freshmen and sophomores. Bulldog Coach Kathy Combest is quick to praise Simms for her leadership, work ethic and just being a good student and person. We now turn the spotlight on Arianna Simms. Q: How old were you when you started playing basketball? A: I was in the seventh grade, so I was around 12 or 13. Q: What’s the best part of playing basketball? A: All the people that you meet and all the connections and friendships that you have. Q: What’s the worst part of playing basketball? A: Being tired. I do not like running at all, but I do it anyway. Q: What does it feel like to be on the rst Crestview girls basketball team to make the playoffs since 2010? A: It’s just a really good feeling because Crestview wasn’t really put on the map (in girls basketball) until this year. Q: If you had to pick a sport other than basketball to play, what would it be? A: Probably cheerleading because I like doing cartwheels, ips and stuff. Q: What is your favorite basketball experience? A: Probably when we beat Fort Walton earlier this season. Q: What are your hobbies away from basketball? A: I like doing hair, singing, cooking and being with my friends. Q: What’s your dream career? A: I want to major in sports medicine and become a physical therapist. Q: Do you want to play college ball? A: Yes, I want to go to Gulf Coast (College) for two years and then transfer to a university. I don’t know which one. My dream school is probably Notre Dame. Q: What is your favorite movie? A: I don’t have one. Q: Who is your favorite singer? A: I like Beyonce a lot. Q: What is your best memory of your time at Crestview High? A: The best memory I have is this season coming out and working hard and seeing the team get better. It’s just cool to watch people get better.

F I N E S T O N T H E E M E R A L D C O A S T Sports By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com FORT WALTON BEACH — Crestview High School’s girls basketball team still has a lot of basketball to play. The Bulldogs are in the playoffs for the rst time since 2010. And they might even get another shot at District 1-7A rival Fort Walton Beach High School. But Saturday night was the Vikings’ turn to shine as Fort Walton Beach beat the Bulldogs 48-41 to win the district tournament. The Bulldogs’ biggest obstacle was getting over the hump, Crestview Coach Kathy Combest said. “We’ve got to learn to win,” she said. “Fort Walton Beach has been in the situation before, and the players have that experience. Not a soul on our team has any district championship game experience.” Combest hopes the tournament will help her team when Crestview travels to Tallahassee on Thursday for a 6 p.m. region quarter nal game at Leon. If the Bulldogs and the Vikings — who host Chiles in the region quarter nal — both win, the teams will play in the Feb. 11 region semi nals at Fort Walton Beach. The district nal was a battle of wills between two evenly matched teams. The Bulldogs (18-8) used their quickness and a pressure defense in jumping to a 9-2 lead at the end of the rst quarter. Jasmine Middle scored the rst Bulldog basket off an offensive rebound. Three-point baskets by Jensis Coleman and KK White, along with free throws by Arianna Simms, had the Bulldogs standing tall with eight minutes gone in the game. In a sign of things to come, the Vikings (17-9) struggled from the eld two in the rst quarter but were able to get to the free throw line eight times and hit two. Malaya Evans broke the Viking shooting slump with a 3-point basket with 7:17 left in the rst half. DeDe McLane followed with a basket to cut the Bulldog lead to 9-7. Consecutive baskets by Middle, Coleman and Simms pushed Crestview’s lead back up to eight points. But the Vikings weren’t about to go away, as they went on an 8-0 run, tying the game at 15-15 with 52 seconds left in the half. Once again, Crestview had an answer as Simms and Coleman scored to push the Bulldog lead back to four points at the half. Though they led by four at the half, the Bulldogs struggled from the eld and shot several long 3-point attempts that came up short or rattled off the rim. Two-and-a-half minutes into the third quarter, the Crestview shooters seemed to have found their range. Coleman and Simms hit back-to-back 3s to push the Bulldog lead back to eight points. Fort Walton Beach nished the third quarter with a scoring rampage that cut the Crestview lead to 34-33. Through three quarters, the Vikings were 4 of 12 from the free line. The Vikings lived at the line in the fourth quarter, shooting 19 free throws and hitting 10. Fort Walton Beach also had a eld goal from McLane and a 3-pointer from Evans. White scored all seven of Crestview’s points in the fourth quarter to nish the night with a team best 13. Coleman scored 12 for Crestview. Evans scored 16 for the Vikings, and McLane added 14. Fort Walton Beach outscored Crestview 14-2 at the free throw line. The Vikings shot 31 foul shots, and the Bulldogs shot eight. “They didn’t beat us on eld goals,” Combest said. “They beat us on free throws.” PHOTOS BY NICK TOMECEK | Daily News Crestview High School’s Jensis Coleman, left, and Fort Walton Beach’s Dominique Darby ght for a loose ball during the district nal on Saturday at Fort Walton Beach High School.

But McSween’s rst win will have to wait, as the Bulldogs lost their season opener to Pace High School on Monday 4-3. The Patriots rallied from a 3-0 de cit, scoring three runs in the sixth and one in the seventh. “That’s a tough way to lose the rst one, having a three-run lead,” McSween said. “But you have to give Pace credit. They came in the last two innings and swung it (the bat). “I thought the girls played hard, and they battled all of the game. As a coach, that’s what you ask for ... competitiveness.” Lacy Boyd scored the game-winner on a Chelsea Patterson double. Crestview (0-1) struck rst with three runs on the bottom of the third inning. Kayla Kelch reached on a Pace error to lead off the inning. Kelch stole second base with Kelsie Dardon at the plate. Kelch took third on a Dardon single and scored the game’s rst run on a Kristen Bufkin double that moved Dardon to third base. It looked as if the Bulldogs were set up for a big inning with nobody out, a run in and two runners on base. But things quickly changed. A Taylor Rolison hit scored Dardon, but Bufkin was thrown out trying to score on the play. Rolison showed her aggressiveness on the base paths and took third as Bufkin was thrown out at the plate. Rolison’s heads-up base running paid off when she scored as Taylor Henderson grounded out to third base for the second out of the inning. The inning ended with Kylene Day ying out to center. With Rolison in control in the pitcher circle, it looked as if the Bulldogs had the game well in hand. Rolison only allowed two hits and a walk in the rst ve innings while striking out 10. By the time the Patriots came to bat in the sixth inning, they had begun to adjust to Rolison’s pitching. The rst three Pace batters in the sixth inning each got a hit. Patriot pitcher Peyton Carpenter helped her own cause with a 2-run double that scored Patterson and Chelsea Stotlman. Stotlman scored on a Savanna Allen hit to tie the game at 3-3. McSween didn’t have any second thoughts about leaving Rolison in the circle for the seventh inning. “I felt like Taylor pitched a great game, and it didn’t go our way tonight,” he said. The Bulldogs pounded out 12 hits in the loss. Rolison, who struck out 12 Patriot batters, led the Crestview offense with three hits. Kelch, Dardon and Molly Woodward each had three hits for Crestview. The Bulldogs return to action at 6 p.m. Thursday when they host Jay.

Crestview News Bulletin | B3 Wednesday, February 5, 2014 Players shoot for fellowship, stars as they grow in faith By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW — Typically in basketball, the team tries to shoot enough baskets to score the most points. Of cials at two churches do things a little differently. Central Baptist and Live Oak Baptist churches’ Upward Basketball and Cheerleading league, for kindergartners through sixth-graders, offers stars on the court, and points. “They have different stars (attached to their uniforms): One is (for) offense, one is defense,” said Coach Andrew Slentz, who works with The Jazz, a group of thirdand fourth-grade boys and girls. “Then they have a white (star), which is for Christ-like.” That star is the biggest difference, Live Oak Pastor Jerry Nelson said. “The unique thing about this league is that we get to spread the word of God,” he said. “It’s an opportunity to get out and have fun playing basketball and, more importantly, teach some scripture.” That happens during half-time. Nelson delivered a brief, inspirational message during a recent Saturday game. There are other differences between Upward and other North Okaloosa teams. Upward allows children in the same age range, regardless of sex, to play together, said Kristy Larkins, Central Baptist’s Recreational Outreach Center Kid Care director. Play, not compete, is the key word. “This is not a competitive league,” she said. “They all get the equal amount of playing time.” “It helps develop their character and con dence,” Nelson said. The league’s nal games take place March 15 with an awards ceremony the next Monday. Call 682-5525 for details. Sports By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com LAUREL HILL — In what might have been a symbolic changing of the guard, Laurel Hill School sophomore Cameron Gordon hit a 3-point basket with 19 seconds left in Friday’s game, giving the Hoboes a 52-49 win over Rocky Bayou Christian School. “Cameron Gordon — wow, he came off the bench there at the end, and he stepped up,” Hobo Coach Kent Zessin said. “He played JV all year, and we just brought him up. He’s one of my better shooters.” Josh Hartzog, Lane Strickland, Travis Johnson and William Rorech were honored in a Senior Night ceremony before the game. Rocky Bayou spent the next 32 minutes trying to spoil the regular season home nale for the Hobo seniors. Josh Bryant, Chris Matthews, Josh Preston and Kyle Wilson each scored for Rocky Bayou in the rst ve minutes of play. The only Laurel Hill points in the rst ve minutes came on a pair of Strickland free throws as the Knights jumped in front 8-2. A Strickland dunk with 2:01 left in the quarter cut the Knight lead to 8-4. Laurel Hill (16-8) trailed by at least four points until late in the fourth quarter. Several factors, including Senior Night and missing several days of practice because of the ice storm, contributed to Laurel Hill’s sluggish play, Zessin said. “It was a combination of everything,” he said. “Our shooting percentage had to be under 20 for the night. We couldn’t throw in the ocean in the rst half. It could have gotten ugly, but the defense kept us in it.” The Hoboes couldn’t wrestle the lead from the Knights, but Laurel Hill stayed within striking distance. Rocky Bayou pushed the lead to nine points on several occasions but couldn’t get the lead to double digits. The Knights’ lead was nine at 43-34, with 5:41 left in the game after a Kyle Wilson free throw. A Hartzog free throw trimmed a point off the Rocky lead and triggered a 13-4 Hobo run. Bryson Cooper scored a layup on an assist from Hartzog after a steal, and the Hoboes were off and running. Cooper, Hartzog, Strickland and Max Smith all scored during the run. Tee Calloway hit two free throws with 1:48 left in the fourth quarter to give the Hoboes their rst lead of the night at 49-48. Twenty-one seconds later, Bryant hit a free throw to tie the game at 49-49, setting up the heroics by Gordon. Gordon’s game-winning 3pointer was the only shot from beyond the arch the Hoboes hit in the game. As seniors Hartzog, Strickland, Rorech and Johnson left the home court for the last time in the regular season, Gordon showed why the future looks bright for the Hoboes. Strickland led the Hoboes with 21 points. Cooper and Hartzog each scored nine. Smith had six points, Calloway four and Gordon three.

Its just February, but college nancial aid of cers are already working to determine grants for the school year coming this fall. If you have children you plan on sending to college, how will your savings and investments affect their chances of getting nancial aid? The answer depends on how much money you have and where you keep it. Most colleges base their aid calculations on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which counts up to 5.64 percent of certain parent-owned assets in determining federal or state aid. FAFSA counts up to 20 percent of a childs assets, such as a UGMA or UTMA account. So, what parent-owned assets are counted when determining a students need for nancial aid? They include savings and checking accounts, non-retirement investment accounts and other types of assets. You do not have to report retirement accounts such as traditional or Roth IRAs, 401(k)s and pensions on the FAFSA. However, if you start taking withdrawals from these accounts, the withdrawals must be reported on the FAFSA as student income for the year in which transactions occurred and these withdrawals could affect your childs nancial aid package the following year. A 529 plan is one popular college-savings vehicle. If you own a 529 plan, you will need to report it on FAFSA as a parent-owned asset. But when you take withdrawals from the 529 plan, they wont be counted as parent or student income on FAFSA, and they wont incur federal income taxes, provided the money is used for quali ed higher education expenses. (If you dont use the money for these expenses, youll be taxed and potentially penalized by 10 percent on the earnings.) Because a 529 plan is counted as a parental asset on FAFSA, some people ask grandparents to own a 529 plan. But while the value of an intact grandparentcontrolled 529 plan will be excluded from FAFSA, withdrawals themselves will be counted as untaxed income to the student on the following years FAFSA, and this money could certainly affect aid decisions. At least a year before your rst child heads to college, you may want to contact the nancial aid of ce at a local school to ask questions about FAFSA, scholarships, loans and other aspects of assistance. Since most colleges and universities follow similar rules regarding nancial aid, you should be able to get some helpful answers, no matter where your child goes to school. Of course, even with careful planning, your student may not qualify for nancial aid. If this is the case, consider other strategies for paying for college. But keep this in mind: Its best to develop a savings strategy for both college savings and ones own retirement goals. So, study the nancial aid rules, consider investing in college-funding vehicles such as 529 plans, and do whatever else you can to help get your kids through school. But dont forget about your own needs because they are important, too. Joe Faulk is a nancial adviser.

BRIEF FINANCIAL FOCUS FINANCIAL FOCUS JOE FAULK Financial Focus By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW An eight-session tness camp coming to Old Spanish Trail Park could greatly bene t the more than 20 percent of residents who are obese, tness instructor Blake Miley said. Miley wants to host what he calls a massive workout series that hundreds of people could attend at once. The course, to take place at Old Spanish Trail Park pavilion, could begin in a couple weeks if enough people are interested. Im not trying to put any gyms out of business, Miley said. The point is ... to give people another option. Its not CrossFit. Its something everybody can do. CrossFit is a high-intensity strength and conditioning program. Instead, the Miley Fitness program would incorporate yoga, tness kickboxing, bodyweight workouts, stretching and cardio exercises. A Mississippi tness coachs program, which drew more than a thousand participants in that state, inspired Miley. It was pretty awesome, seeing them all working out at one time, Miley said. Outdoor tness camp coming to Crestview WANT TO GO?

50 Cent Value FREE Call 682-6524 to subscribe to the Crestview News Bulletin By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew matthewb@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW Rachel Simon plans to follow her mothers example. My mom decided she wanted to go to medical school, the Shoal River Middle School eighth-grader said. (Then) I started to realize that I wanted to become a surgeon. The 14-year-old already knows her dream career path. I want to start as a general surgeon and eventually become a heart surgeon and practice internal medicine, she said. Rachels getting the experience she needs from Okaloosa Countys Science Students Together Reaching Instructional Diversity and Excellence program. Crestview High School and Davidson and Shoal River Middle Schools have offered the Florida State University College of Medicine program which includes lab work, community service opportunities and eld trips since 2003. Rachel was among 62 of SSTRIDEs latest middle and high school students inducted into the program during a Jan. 27 ceremony. Students must have a 3.0 grade point average, no disciplinary referrals, regular attendance and they must pass an application and interview process. Watching her grow up from a child to a woman and knowing that she is going into the (medical) profession it brings me joy, Franco Simon, Rachels father, said. I didnt have this opportunity growing up. I tell my children to seize the moment ... the sky is the limit. Shanice Bernard, a CHS and Davidson graduate, is learning just that. Shes studying at FSU pursuing a degree in the medical eld, for which she credits SSTRIDE. Being part of this program provided me with the support system that I needed, she said. Sponsors help support the support system, Penny Eubanks, SSTRIDEs Okaloosa County coordinator, said. North Okaloosa Medical Center stepped into fund the groups March eld trip to FSUs chemistry department, she said. But more help is needed. Okaloosa SSTRIDE needs the communitys help to fund 26 $250 scholarships for CHS seniors who complete the program, Eubanks said. Every year since we have had this class, we have given each (SSTRIDE) student a $250 scholarship, she said. These students will use this for college. Eubanks said her busy schedule prevented her from organizing fundraisers this year. However, this is something I would like to continue to do (for students), she said.

The like-new prefabricated skate park equipment, including ramps and lighting, was put in place by a government agency that then didnt want them, Public Works Director Wayne Steele said. Anthony Hemphill, whose family periodically donates equipment to regional municipalities, made the offer last week, and has extended tomorrows original deadline because of the storm, Steele said. City leaders, who would formally vote on the matter during a later public meeting, would have to approve stormwater management systems and electrical work for the proposed Twin Hills Park site and pay $55,000 to install the equipment. The park would be access-controlled by swipe cards issued after users signed waivers or, in the case of minors, had them signed by their parents, Steele said. CRA funding available In January 2013, a skate park and dog park were proposed as Community Redevelopment Agency-funded improvements. CRA money would be used for the citys match toward the Hemphills donation if approved, Steele said. Steele advised the council that changes in state statutes allow municipalities to classify skate parks as recreational facilities on par with sports elds and youth and adult athletic programs. The Florida League of Cities includes skate parks under a municipalitys general insurance policy, Steele said. Were getting $175,000 of equipment (with installation) for $55,000, Councilman Tom Gordon said. I think its ridiculous if we let this go. I am very much in agreement to accept something like this if we have a guarantee the equipment is what he says it is, Councilman Joe Blocker said. Gift horse or Trojan horse? Be cautious, please, that a gift horse is not a Trojan horse in disguise, Miller said. Our systems are in place to protect cost and product. While City Clerk Betsy Roy said city purchasing guidelines require the project to be sent out for bid, Steele said his research found the city could never nd skate park equipment for $55,000. Steele said he would do more research into the condition of the equipment and the Hemphill familys donations to other communities. Steele said Hemphill would accept a consensus up until the equipment, which is currently in Georgia, is crated and ready to be transported.

The Helping Other People Effectively Network would establish transitional housing and a permanent shelter here, if it reaches its goals. HOPE leader Ann Sprague said she plans to meet with local bank ofcials to learn about foreclosed homes, although the organization would accept donations for a house and contractor services. Its the next step in helping needy North Okaloosa residents, she said. HOPE members gather monthly to coordinate soup kitchens and cold weather shelters. Representatives of Crestviews First United Methodist Church, First Presbyterian Church in Crestview and the Journey Church said the need has increased. We can see it growing; of course, a lot of it has to do with the economy, Ed Kitchen, of First Presbyterian, said. Sean Peters, pastor at the Journey Church, said attendance at their soup kitchen has grown steadily since the service opened last May. We had around 30 (people), on average, and then in the summer we had an average of 90 to 100, he said. Since then the numbers have tapered off to around 75. Many individuals who visit the area soup kitchens are not homeless, Jo-An Williams, of First Presbyterian, said. The majority comes from people on a xed-income or (those using) food stamps, she said. Regardless of whom they help or how they help them, working together is crucial. I think this is so important for the community, Peters said. The fact that churches are working together in the community to make something happen every day of the week ... to feed people and bring them out from the cold, he said. Its a really good thing and I am excited that we are a part of it. HOPE is always open to gaining new members, regardless of religious af liation, Sprague said. Anybody is welcome, she said. We are trying to nd any opportunity to help the community. MATTHEW BROWN | News Bulletin The Helping Other People Effectively Network comprises representatives from several area churches. From left, during a recent meeting, are David Hill of Crestview First United Methodist Church, Darla Perkins and Jo-An Williams of First Presbyterian Church in Crestview, Doug Picklap of Emmanuel Baptist Church, Ed Kitchen of First Presbyterian Church in Crestview, and Ann Sprague of Community in Christ Church.

Churches seek community support for housing initiative I once read this saying: Life is meant to be lived not feared, sold nor sweated. Fear not death. Fear the unlived life. It sticks in my mind as I mourn the loss of Maudy Carper, a long-time Laurel Hill resident. Maudy, who died this past weekend, was a friend to many. But to me, she and her husband, Tom, the long-time love of her life, were aunt and uncle. My family lived next door to them when I was growing up. They were classmates at Laurel Hill School with my father and soon became close friends with my mother. Then again, Maudy was friends with anybody. She would welcome you in no matter when you dropped by for a cold drink on a hot day or something hot to eat on a cold one. If you needed help or wanted to hang out, she was the rst to volunteer. Maudy just loved people and was always surrounded by them. Last year, Maudy began to have health problems. Through her frequent hospital stays and various treatments, Tom and her loving daughter, Kim, along with countless other family and friends, stood by her side. This past year has been especially dif cult as we watched her inch closer to time to leave us. Now, she has joined other loved ones in heaven. Of course, we will greatly miss her but we nd comfort in knowing shes no longer hurting. Instead, shes watching over us from a better place. And, as the saying said, she lived life.

Extra Crestview News Bulletin | A3 By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com FORT WALTON BEACH Dont look now, but Crestview High Schools girls basketball team is playing for the District 1-7A championship. Bulldog junior point guard Jen sis Coleman was at her best with the District 1-7A girls seminal bas ketball game on the line Thursday night. Coleman scored 13 of her game high 26 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Bulldogs to a 51-42 win over Niceville at Fort Walton Beach High Schools Viking Gymnasium. Crestview (18-7) will meet Fort Walton Beach in the tournament championship game at 7 p.m. tonight at Fort Walton Beach. The win also assured the Bulldogs a spot in the state playoffs that start next week. Powered by six points from Cole man and four from Jasmine Middle ton, the young Bulldog team jumped to a 13-0 lead six minutes into the game. At that point it looked as the equally young Eagle squad might be doomed. A Jessie Day basket followed by a Michaela Mitchell 3-pointer pulled Niceville to within 13-5 and gave the Eagles (14-11) some much needed momentum. Jaci Hodskins scored six points in the second quarter to lead the Eagle charge as Niceville went on a 16-6 run. A pair of Hodskins free throws with 22 seconds left in the rst half gave Niceville its rst lead at 21-20. But the momentum swung back to Crestview when Bulldog fresh man KK White hit a 3-pointer as the half ended, giving Crestview a 23-21 lead at the break. They got a little rattled and I just had to settle them down and tell them not to get back (down) and play our game, Bulldog Coach Kathy Comb est. Nice-villes so big they did give us some problems, but we adjusted and regained our composure. We knew we had to beat Nicev ille to play Fort Walton again. And we to play Fort Walton to make it known that we are a basketball team too. Nicevilles zone defense bothered Crestview throughout much of the game, but the Bulldogs still found themselves on top 30-24 with just more than a minute left in the third quarter. Back-to-back Day 3-pointers were followed by back-to-back scores by Hodskins as the Eagles ran off 10 unanswered points in a span of 76 seconds. Hodskins second basket of the run came 16 seconds into the fourth quarter and gave the Eagles their largest lead of the night at four points. Coleman and her Bulldog team mates then went to work using a pressure defense to grind out the win down the stretch. I feel like Crestview is coming back (to being a force in girls basket ball), Middleton said. Thats all you can say. We always have to stay together. We might be down, but we can al ways come back. As long as we stay together and do what we are capable of well be OK. With 26 points, Coleman was the only Bulldog in double gures. White added nine points and Middleton eight in the win. Day topped Niceville with 16 points. Hodskins had 14 points and Mitchell scored eight.

Raid e r s Co mm o do res Ac tivities Wednesday, February 5, 2014 NICK TOMECEK | Daily News Crestview High Schools K.K. White shoots for three against Nicevilles Amanda Wilson on Thursday at Fort Walton Beach High School. Bulldogs looking for respect By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle randyd@crestviewbulletin.com FORT WALTON BEACH While Crestview High School girls basketball Coach Kathy Combest preaches one game at a time to her players, she always thinks ahead. Long before the Bulldogs beat Niceville 51-42 in the District 1-7A tournament seminals, Combest was preparing for the win and a showdown with top seed Fort Walton Beach in tonights 7 p.m. tournament champion ship game. It was no accident that Crestview (18-7) played at Fort Walton Beach on Jan. 11. That scheduling was part of Combests plan, as she knew the tournament cham pionship game would be played on a Saturday at Fort Walton Beach. I didnt schedule us to play Fort Walton Beach at their place on a Saturday because it was the only date open, she said. I wanted to make it as real life as pos sible, thinking it was (the Vikings) who we were going to play (in the tournament championship). We knew coming into the tournament that this was the matchup we would probably get (in the nals). We had to beat Niceville (in the semi nals) to get Fort Walton, and we (had) to play Fort Walton again to make it known that we are a good basketball team too. Combest said Crestviews 73-66 win that night sur prised some people. But the win also was another step in the growing process for a young Bulldog squad. That was an upset for us to beat them, but you dont want it to be an upset now, Combest said. We won it be cause we were ready to play. Thats what I want them thinking. We are going to play our game, play hard and let the cards be where they are. Combest believes the Bulldogs match up with the Vikings better physically than they did with the Eagles, but she said Fort Walton Beach has an advantage that cant be physically measured. They are fast and were fast, she said. We match up them (athletically), but Fort Walton is a very mature and established team. Win or lose tonight, the Bulldogs are headed to the regional quarternals next week. And whatever the outcome of the game, Comb est is simply looking for one thing. Crestview has never had that respect (as a basket ball school), Combest said. Hopefully we will gain that respect.
