Thats because theyre married. Laurel Hills Lee Martello and Baker Schools Mike Martello say having a fellow principal as spouse provides a sympathetic and understanding ear at home.

Lee Martello was appointed principal at Laurel Hill a year before her husband.

It gives a whole new level to our conversation in terms of empathizing with Oh, Ive done that or Ive been through that. Hes real good with empathizing: hes a good compass.

There (are) a lot of things that go into it, but the main thing is love, trust and respect for one another, Jack, 83, said. He and his wife are celebrating 60 years of wedded bliss. Barbara, 76, shared a list of qualities that contribute to lasting relationships. You support each other, she said. You never belittle one another ... you build each other up. Also important? Working together to raise a family, communication and giving each other some space. The couple, who met on a blind date, married in 1954 and moved from Alabama to Crestview in 1965. Jack worked as an Okaloosa County supervisor and Barbara stayed at home to raise their four children and enjoy her arts and crafts hobby. Now, the couple have 12 grandchildren and 18 greatgrandchildren. Many family members, traveling from as far as Utah and California, attended an Aug. 9 anniversary celebration in their honor at Warriors Hall. Crestview resident Miriama Devine, born in Hawaii, performed a couple of Hawaiian dances. Other family members and friends celebrated the occasion by singing heartfelt music. They were just giving back to a couple who gave them so much, family members said. My grandparents helped raise us, Devine said. There would be many times when we would miss the bus and they would come and pick us up and take us to school. Marcia Drasko-Fox, the couples daughter, said she believes their commitment to family had something to do with their lasting relationship. I think the key to a strong marriage is a strong family, she said.

BRIEFS FROM STAFF REPORTS LAUREL HILL A committee organizing this years Hobo Festival seeks vendors for the Oct. 4 event at Gene Clary Park. Organizers need food, commercial and arts and craft vendors for the 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. community festival. More than 60 spots are available at the park. Twenty-one of the 20feet-wide by 20-feet-deep booths allow for water and electricity usage. Vendors wanting to use electricity and water must pay a $40 fee; otherwise, the cost is $25. The committee on Monday decided to postpone a previously discussed talent show competition for the festival, due to time constraints and a lack of outside interest. The committee seeks local musicians to perform throughout the day. The Hobo festival is returning in October after a one-year hiatus. Last years festival was postponed due to a nonprot status issue. A Day in the Country Life Fall Festival, sponsored by Safe Haven Horse Rescue Center and the citys volunteer re department, replaced the event. In addition to seeking vendors, committee members seek sponsors and volunteers. Interested volunteers may attend the next festival committee meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday at Laurel Hill city hall.

Sharlene Cox, 69, is on the move each day, donating her time and talents so her communitys youths can have the best opportunities possible. Shes been at it for the past 40 years and is still going strong. A PEOPLE PERSON Ive logged in 800 steps so far, Cox said, referring to her pedometer, which tracks her daily activity including tending to her family and meeting with local residents. On an average day I do a mile or over. The type of energy she projects landed her as an honoree in the 2009 Okaloosa County Womens Hall of Fame, with her photographs on display at two key county buildings. Im a people person, Cox said. Cox, who began community volunteer work in Okaloosa County in 1974, could be considered for the whos who of Crestview movers and shakers; shes touched the city in many ways. She is the Crestview Exchange Clubs secretary and youth pillar. It is one of 30 Exchange Clubs providing community service to Florida cities and towns and 700 nationwide. The rst one was founded in 1911 and is the countrys oldest service organization operating exclusively in the United States. We develop the nations youth, serve senior citizens, promote Americanism among other things and our national project is to prevent child abuse, said Cox. At a recent club meeting after pledging allegiance to the American ag and chanting the clubs oath, Cox got down to business, providing assistance to the FamiliesFirst Network. The Gulf Coast-based organization provides emergency shelter, foster care and adoption services. Carrie Queen of FamiliesFirst who was on hand to display school supplies the Exchange Club provided through club donations said Cox is someone she counts on in a pinch. At times, the organization needs to do emergency 24-hour placement to put children in a safe environment. Cox is a club catalyst to meet their physical needs. You can call her in the middle of the night, Queen said. Formula, diapers and food anything the children need to get settled for the night she makes happen. IMPROVING THE COMMUNITY Not all of Coxs volunteer work involves mending broken situations. Much of it provides future opportunities for Crestview youth and overall community enhancements. She was a substitute elementary and high school teacher from 1975 to 1985; became a back-up rural Crestview mail carrier, 19851987; has been a poll worker and trainer for local and county elections for a decade; and was a co-chairman of the Crestview Triple B Barbecue Festival for three years. With the latter, Cox played a key role in bringing the event from Spanish Trail Park to historic downtown Crestview, which signicantly increased its attendance, promoted tourism and economic development, and raises up to $30,000 a year in the chambers general operating funds, according to Wayne Harris, executive director of the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce. The Triple B Barbecue draws 15,000 people in eight hours and is the largest draw of people in the chambers history, he said. Sharlene was one of the impetuses to being the success it is today. Recently, Cox helped local doctors organize the annual No Child Without Healthcare Fair. Once the school year starts, she will be on the move again; this time to meet with elementary and high school students and prepare selected candidates to advance to the national level and compete for Exchange Club scholarships ranging from $500 to $10,000. Then, come Christmastime, Cox will log more miles on her pedometer during the annual Tour of Homes fundraiser as treasurer of the General Federation of Womans Club of Crestview Inc. She is a liaison to Crestview High Schools Juniorettes, the youngest members of GFWC Florida Federation of Womens Clubs, which is the worlds largest and oldest service organization of volunteer women and in more than 20 countries. Together they serve as hosts to local homes with holiday decorating air where the owners agree to allow the general public to take a tour. Improving the community is important, she said. After all, as the community grows, if people dont do things to improve it, people dont want to stay here, she said. FAMILY FIRST In Coxs various clubs shes held titles like president at the local and state level and director or shes been seated on the board of directors. Devoting time to all these responsibilities requires prioritizing. My family comes rst, but I enjoy working in my community, Cox said. In 1965, she became the wife of a career civil service test design engineer who retired from Eglin Air Force Base in 1995. Well be married 50 years in January, she said. The two met on base, where Cox was a clerk. They left to raise a family with the addition of their rst baby, whom they adopted in 1967, followed by their second child, adopted in 1972. She now has two grown grandchildren, all local Floridians and steadfast in the community as well. Crestview has been shaped partly through one womans community spirit and family commitment. And if family genetics prove favorable with Coxs mother living to almost 101 years old there are many more decades for her to affect peoples lives. Because community service is Coxs passion. I enjoy the different activities, end results and the feeling it gives your heart, she said.

The Economic Development Ad valorem Tax Exemption, known as EDATE, is up for renewal during the Aug. 26 primary election. Okaloosa County voters rst approved EDATE in 2003. It granted businesses $638,000 in county ad valorem tax exemptions before it expired in March. In exchange, EDATE generated $34.5 million in business investment, including 402 jobs that pay, at minimum, 110 percent of the prevailing average local salary, according to Economic Development Council Director Nathan Sparks. Over the past 10 years, that tool has improved our competitive position, Sparks said. Businesses have a choice as to where they invest. They go to those counties that can partner with them in their economic growth. Crestview attorney Ashley Rogers, speaking Tuesday during the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerces Government Issues Committee meeting, said the county does not lose existing tax revenue when businesses qualify for EDATE. Escambia, Santa Rosa and Walton counties, as well as neighboring Covington County, Ala., and other regional counties use similar incentives, Rogers said. If we dont vote and pass EDATE, we know were giving up a tool that other people have, she said. Its like going into battle without your weapons. Competition to lure high-paying jobs isnt just nearby, Sparks said during Mondays Crestview City Council meeting. Were competing with other communities, other counties, other states and even other countries, he said. North Okaloosa businesses that have capitalized on EDATE savings are Advance Sawmill Machinery Equipment in Holt, and L3 Crestview Aerospace and North Okaloosa Medical Center in Crestview. Bit-Wizards, a Fort Walton Beach IT company, also quali ed for EDATE advantages. The exemption is available for new businesses and existing businesses that want to expand. Businesses are strictly vetted using criteria such as stability, number of jobs and salaries. The exemption doesnt apply to taxes paid to the Okaloosa County School District or special assessments such as re and water districts, and municipal taxes. By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian email@example.com CRESTVIEW Soon, the Community Redevelopment Agency and Main Street Crestview Association will share a director. By splitting the new position between the CRA and Main Street, CRA board members who are also sitting City Council members will bene t from a fulltime professional adviser, they said. Meanwhile, the association can maintain its accreditation with the state Main Street program, which requires a full-time program manager. Main Street President Ellis Conner hopes to have candidates vetted and a director in place by Oct. 1, which starts the new scal year. CRA members voted 4-1 Monday to hire a leader for both entities. Board members Joe Blocker, Thomas Gordon, Shannon Hayes and Mickey Rytman voted in favor of the proposal. Robyn Helt cast the lone dissenting vote. Its a triumph for Conner, a former city councilman who has tried for two years to get a full-time program manager for the association. Job description The CRA board, using Conners proposed job description as a starting point, will meet in a workshop to re ne the positions responsibilities. The workshop date has not yet been set, City Clerk Betsy Roy said. Rytman, a past Main Street president, said he wanted the position to report to the CRA to assure board oversight. The previous Main Street director had a contract, and they can come and go whenever they want to. If were going to spend the money, I want some control, Rytman said. The board agreed to fund the position as a city employee, as the Main Street program coordinator had been prior to the contract position. Helt opposed the measure because she felt the request for the $40,000 a year position was not properly phrased on the meeting agenda, and because she felt Ellis request did not represent the entire Main Street Crestview Association boards consensus.

Ashley Rogers Crestview attorney Voters asked to consider business tax exemptions SANDERS from page A1 years as Riverside Elementary Schools assistant principal. In addition to teaching at Walker Elementary School for 18 years, Sanders served one year as a teacher on special assignment for the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice in Okaloosa County. Sanders, now a rst-year school principal, said she has found her ideal school. Its a tough job, but it has been a dream for me and its come true, she said. Sanders said shes focused on the rst week of school for now, but she anticipates expanding the schools music program with additional instruments. In addition, shed like to boost tablet use among students. While still getting to know many of the educators and staff, Sanders said she is already aware of the teachers dedication to students education. (The teachers) are awesome they have been very supportive and very welcoming to Antioch, which is what makes it great, she said. Serving as principal will have its challenges, namely the schools increasing student population. Although all teaching positions are currently full, Sanders said the school could need additional teachers because of the expected student enrollment. We are over the class size in some areas, and the (Okaloosa School) District is watching it real close, she said. An estimated 889 students are expected to attend Antioch this year. Sanders said the enrollment number could decrease by Mondays rst day back for students. Sometimes, (families) will leave the area and forget to say (their children) are not coming, she said. We want to see if we are truly over the class size limit, before (the district) commits to hiring a teacher. (The teachers) are awesome they have been very supportive and very welcoming to Antioch, which is what makes it great.

Laurel Hill ministry hosts Funfest for area youth By MATTHEW BROWN 682-6524 | @cnbMatthew firstname.lastname@example.org LAUREL HILL New Hope Ministries is bringing the fun fest to Gene Clary Park Aug. 30. Youth Funfest activities will include a water slide, dunking booth, volleyball and basketball activities, face painting, an obstacle course, and a back-toschool fashion and talent show. Several activities will feature cash prizes, organizers said. No entry fee is required to attend, but the church will collect donations through food sales and game participation. Proceeds will bene t a future New Hope youth group trip to the Six Flags amusement park in Georgia. The church couldnt raise enough funds for a youth trip this year, event organizer Jeanette Wade said. They didnt get to go anywhere this year, she said. This is our way of giving them something fun to do. Changing the venue should help, the Rev. Willie Williams said. The church usually hosts social events, but organizers hope that bringing the Funfest to Gene Clary Park will encourage more community involvement. In Laurel Hill, there isnt much to do, Williams said. The purpose is to give these kids something to do. WANT TO GO? WHAT: Youth Funfest WHEN: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 30 WHERE: Gene Clary Park, on the corner of New Ebenezer Road and Park Street in Laurel Hill CALL: Jeanette Wade, 334-3434554 Gods mercy takes many forms Its been said that anyone who has encountered Gods mercy, who has been caressed by its tenderness, is happy and comfortable with the Lord. Would you agree with that? I do. Have you ever thought about how you have experienced Gods mercy? Believe it or not, it is not always in the big ashy ways most people expect. Experiencing Gods mercy might be as simple as remaining involved in the ministries of Gods church where you attend worship (if you do). Or by recognizing God has forgiven your mistakes. Perhaps you have experienced Gods mercy by being blessed with a wonderful family. Or by remaining married when it seems like your spouse should have left you for some grievous error on your part. Although we constantly sin, God calls us to repentance and faithfulness. His mercy is unending. How closely do you pay attention to Gods mercy? Do you stop to think about it? Does the gratitude ll your heart? When you think about the many forms of Gods mercy, you might start to feel overwhelmed. You might feel humbled. Each of us, deserving of Gods condemnation instead receives Gods love, mercy, and forgiveness. This is truly a gift from God. The Rev.

www.crestviewbulletin.com August 16-19, 2014 Section SPORTS By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle email@example.com m CRESTVIEW Shoal River Middle School football players will be a little safer this fall when they take the eld. Tuesday each Mustang received an EvoShield rib shirt thanks to efforts of the Dugas Family Foundation and the Taylor Haugen Foundations Youth Equipment for Sports Safety Program. Taylor Haugen was a 15-year old Niceville High School student who died following a hit to his spleen in August of 2008. Since then, his parents, Brian and Kathy, have kept his memory and spirit alive through the foundation bearing his name. The Haugen Foundation and the YESS Program have secured grants to pay for the $90 piece of equipment that helps better protect players. Weve supplied close to 25 schools and 2,000 players with the EvoShield, Brian Haugen said. We have grant money to provide every high school and middle school player in Okaloosa and Walton County with the shield. But we cant do it unless we know what to order. We want the coaches to aggressively look for the application and apply so we can get it on the kids. While football equipment is created so one size ts many, the EvoShield rib shirt is made from a chemical polymer designed to t the contour of an individual players body size and shape. Its lightweight; its 5/8th inch thick and its breathable, Haugen said. The thing that makes it really unique is it feels like a part of your T-shirt. It doesnt feel like an extra pad or extra equipment or something that weighs you down. Shoal River is the rst school in North Okaloosa County to receive the EvoShield. Its crazy, Mustang Coach Ryan Gillis said. First of all, they are giving them (the players) a $90 present. The second thing is it is going to keep kids safe and thats the most important thing. Its an honor to be working with such a great foundation. Hopefully its going to supply them (the players) with a little more con dence (and) they can go a little bit harder. Delaware native named Gators basketball coach By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle firstname.lastname@example.org m BAKER Six months after stepping up from being Baker Schools boys basketball coach, Mike Martello nally has found his replacement. Former Oklahoma State player Janavor Weatherspoon is on the Baker campus and takes the reins of the Gator basketball program when the students return to school Monday. Weatherspoon, a Delaware native, brings an impressive basketball resume to the job. He was a member of the OSU Final Four team in 2004. The 2004 Cowboy team was coached by Hall of Famer Eddie Sutton. He also had numerous stops as a player and coach. Martello said it was the depth and diversity of Weatherspoons basketball background that made him a strong t for the job. Hes had experience playing basketball at the junior college and the Division I level, Martello said. Hes played at the professional level overseas. Hes had head coaching experience overseas at the professional level as well. Hes also experienced the high school (coaching). So he brings a well rounded resume to us, so Im excited to have him here. Weatherspoon says hes a basketball junkie, but he tries to break things down into the basic elements as a coach. I love basketball so much, he said. Its one of my biggest passions I have. The thing I think I bring to basketball is rst I would say is simplicity. A lot of people get too caught up in all the different designs (of plays) and hoopla and things like that. The most important thing to me is to teach the kids how to play like a team. Weatherspoon has no preconceived ideas as to what kind of offense and defense his rst Gator team will run. Like most good coaches, he said he will see what talent level he has and adjust his philosophy from there. Weatherspoon played junior college basketball in Texas at Odessa College. He said it was through a friend in Odessa who had ties to the Okaloosa County community that he heard about the job. Ive been applying for coaching jobs all summer actually since the spring, he said. I applied for high school jobs, junior college jobs and Division I coaching jobs also. Weatherspoons worldwide travels have taken him to communities of all sizes, so making the move to Baker School wasnt a big deal. To tell you the truth, I have a lot of experience living in different places, he said. I lived in West Texas, in Odessa. I went to Stillwater to play at Oklahoma State. And then I ew over to Poland and lived in a very, very small town there too, like Baker. Im used to the small towns and small city atmosphere. Weatherspoons wife, Ana, and children Nicola, Janavor Jr., and Naomi have already made the move to the area. Weatherspoon is looking forward to working for Martello and using him as a resource for scouting reports on the teams in the area. I think Coach Martello is a great guy, he said. Its a huge advantage having him here as my boss because he was the basketball coach for the last 10 years. I will always ask questions from him and what kind of pointers he can give me. He knows the area really well so thats an advantage for me. Brian Haugen explaining bene ts of EvoShield rib shirts provided by the Dugas Family Foundation and the Taylor Haugen Foundations YESS Program says Shoal River Middle Schools Mustangs will have an extra layer of protection on the eld.

Local A12 | Crestview News Bulletin August 16-19, 2014 Relevant experience: Certied county commissioner by the Florida Association of Counties including areas of HR, budget ing, growth management and ethics. Worked in county law enforcement for 18 years, devel opment and rental properties management. Other education/experience: Bach elor of Science in criminal justice with a minor in business admin istration from Troy University; served as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army; and Emergency Man agement Certication classes. Reason you seek this position: I am service oriented and helping people is something I really enjoy. Being a commissioner allows me to help people in ways I could not otherwise do. I am scally conservative, and I believe we need to have good quality of life and an afford able life. I have always voted no on new taxes and have worked to keep Okaloosa with one of the low est millage rates and lowest debt ratios in the state. I am a problem solver, and I want to be accessible. I believe in the common sense approach and working locally with the people of Okaloosa County. Biggest issues: Infrastructure, storm water and job creation. We need to work on our major roadways, especially the P.J. Ad ams Parkway four lane, roads in the north end of the county that keep washing out during heavy rains, and we need to work on ways to stabilize them from erod ing and pave more roads. Storm water piping needs re placing under numerous subdivi sions. We need to create jobs that diversify our area. We are very dependent on the military and tourism. Ive worked to bring approxi mately 1,000 jobs into the area, and we need to keep working to at tract new industries to our area. TREY GOODWIN Personal: Wife, Krystle, a Shali mar Elementary School teacher. Two children, Alexia (4) and Rob ert (1). Shalimar United Method ist Church members. Relevant experience: I am an at torney focusing in the areas of real estate, construction and probate law. Previously, I was a project manager for a large multistate construction company. I also served as a city council member for Fort Walton Beach, and am a past member of the Oka loosa County (Economic Develop ment Council)s Business Leader ship Council. Other education/ experience: Bach elor of Science in building construc tion from the Uni versity of Florida; Juris Doctor from the Florida State University College of Law. Reason you seek this position: I want to be the next District 4 county commissioner to restore accountability to the District 4 seat, and (to) serve the people of Okaloosa County with integrity and fair dealing. I will be a common sense ad vocate for the taxpayers, making sure their hard earned tax dol lars are wisely invested in our community. Biggest issues: One of the prima ry issues facing Okaloosa County will be how the county uses BP dollars. My goal is to make sure those dollars are not squandered or wasted. Instead, I propose to use those funds to implement long term infrastructure solutions for roads, storm water drainage, and water quality. I believe that responsible spending should avoid any need to discuss tax increases. HENRY KELLEY Personal: The son of an Air Force sergeant, he has seven siblings and attended Edwins Elementa ry, Bruner Middle School and Fort Walton Beach High School be fore attending the University of Flor ida on an ROTC scholarship. Upon gradu ation, he served as a eld artillery ofcer including a tour in Desert Storm, where he was awarded a Bronze Star. Relevant experience: I have expe rience in each of our key econom ic drivers: military, tourism and medical. I have led and motivated worldwide teams comprising more than 400 employees and managed overall prot and loss for business divisions exceeding $30 million in revenue. Other education/experience: MBA, Rollins College; BA University of Florida; adjunct professor, Florida Institute of Technology. Reason you seek this position: I am seeking this ofce to apply my ex perience to the county I grew up in and love. Biggest issues: Stormwater: If we dont have clean water, efcient runoff and backed up sewage, we dont have a community; we have a slum. When I see sewage back up in our neighbors yards, its time for good policy, not politics, to get in volved and solve problems. I bring a problem-solving mindset and capability to the board, and look forward to using those skills for all residents and visitors to Okaloosa County. We need to work closely with our state delegation. Under Rick Scott, the budget has grown by $9 billion since 2010: I think we can nd $50 million to address sewer, storm water and critical road needs. pr esented by MAIL IN FORM BELO W OR ORDER ONLINE AT : Pr e-or der yo ur copies now (expir es 11/05/14).

Carson attends Baker School, where her friends sometimes hope she can inuence her father on school policies, such as the student dress code. Everybody says, Talk to my dad. See if hell change this or change that, she said. Then when I go home, (I learn) hes not in charge of the dress code. Though the Martellos support each other, act as sounding-boards and offer each other advice, there is one area where a bit of fam ily dissension surfaces, Lee Martello said. Baker and Laurel Hill were in the playoffs for vol leyball and (the game) was at Baker School, she said. We walked in and said hel lo, and he said, Youre not going to sit with me? I said, Absolutely not! I have to go over here and sit with blue and gold. Sometimes, Lee and Mike get to take off their principal hats and just be a typical mom or dad. It is neat that though Im a principal of a school, I then get to go be a parent at my husbands school, Lee said. Our daughter is a cheerleader and in Leadership. Its neat to get to see it from that view: not as an administrator, but as a par ent whos married to that administrator, she said. Its nice to enjoy it from that perspective.
