This isthe second consecutive year the festival will be held at the park, after being moved from Main Street last year. Last years event was sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society, which meant a larger venue was needed to accommodate the increased number of competitors from the previous year. This year, the festival will be part of the Florida Barbeque Association, giving the cookoff a more local flavor.Dino Sinopoli, the new chair of the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerces Triple B Committee, says using the park as a venue makes it easier to comply with the rules of the competition.The competition starts at five oclock the night before, so a lot of the competitors will be out there all night cooking,Ž he said. The temperature of all the meats has to be inspected before they begin, and then they have to follow the rules and regulations, and then turn in their product the next day.ŽThe Peoples Choice compe-tition will be returning this year with one notable change. There will be clearly marked lines for Peoples Choice samples that can be purchased with a ticket and the regular barbecue lines for full purchases. Triple B adds beer, separate lines for Peoples ChoiceThe 14th annual Triple B Cookoff will be held at Old Spanish Trail on March 24.

Now that its warmed up, things are better.ŽThe de Ritters, who moved into an RV on The Emerald Coast Zoo property, said they also had no running water for aboutfive days.Rick said his familys jour-ney is turning out just like the movie, We Bought a Zoo.ŽWe just passed our USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) inspection,Ž Rick said. During the winter we were at the point in the movie where the guy (Matt Damon) was upset and kicked the trashcan and now were at the part where the USDA inspector said it wasnt going to work but then gave us our license.ŽOn Thursday, the Emerald Coast Zoo welcome a pair of kangaroos into a newly built exhibit. Pounders Hawaiian Grill in Crestview sponsored the new kangaroo exhibit, which is located front and center at the zoo.Rick said The Emerald Coast Zoo was unable to get any bank loans, so the family has paid for all of the renovations in cash.Pounders is the only one that has sponsored an exhibit yet,Ž Rick said. Wed love to have more help in the community. We will never stop adding until we make this the coolest zoo in the world.ŽIn addition to the kangaroos, Mozey the sloth has a new girlfriend, Sandy. Three cotton-top tamarins and a capybara now also call The Emerald Coast Zoo home.Rick, who has said he has a heart for the handicapped, also bough a gulf cart for transportation until concrete walkways can be constructed.We have a new, improved gift shop and, with the gulf cart, we are completely acces-sible for blind people or people in a wheelchair.ŽThe de Ritters said they have big plans for The Emer-ald Coast Zoo but, for now, they are focused on the tasks at hand.Weve got everything cleaned up, so it looks like a zoo again,Ž Rick said. March 1 is when well reopen and we hope to see the community there.Ž Keep up with the zoos progress and wildlife on Facebook at Emerald Coast Zoo.Ž To contribute to the animals needs, visit the Amazon wish list at http://a.co/do4MmiB.Emerald Coast Zoo prepares for grand openingA tamarin monkey peers out from an enclosure at Emerald Coast Zoo.

** Sinopoli says the change was decided on after receiv-ing feedback about long lines at last years event.This years Triple B festival will add a fourth B into the mix. Its been the Triple B Bar-becue, which is Blackwater, Bands and Barbeque and this year weve got beer. Weve got a fourth dimension,Ž Sinopoli said. Weve got everything set up for liquor licenses and volunteers to run the booth.ŽAlcohol sales usually raise concerns at large events, but Sinopoli says the event staff is taking precautions to make sure the festival is safe and family-friendly.Everybodys taken their serving class for that to make sure its all done to the code of the law, and to make sure its a good family fun event,Ž he said. Our beer is very much controlled. Itll either be a draft beer setup or a can setup, where you have to come to one spot and purchase the beer, and that gives better control.ŽNotable attractions that wont be returning this year are the bounce house and slides. Sinopoli says the insurance costs to include them have increased, forcing the organizers to make the difficult decision of excluding them from this years event.We have to indemnify the Crestview chamber and the city,Ž he said. By the time you make everybody happy, there are just some things that cannot be in there and thats any rides.ŽThere will still be other fam-ily-friendly attractions at the festival. Many vendors offer games and activities for kids, like face-painting, cornhole tosses and giveaways.Its (going to) be a lot of fun for the kids and lots of good food,Ž Sinopoli said. Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, February 24, 2018 A3Triple B Committee Chair Dino Sinopoli talks about this years festival with Crestview News Bulletin Reporter Aaron Jacobs [AARON JACOBS | NEWS BULLETIN] TRIPLE BFrom Page A1 People have shared the CPD Facebook post announc-ing the program more than 1,300 times as of Feb. 23. They've also left more than 1,200 comments, a portion questioning the legality of the program.You are saying you will pull people over with no probable cause, but you will not release them or let them opt out of the program until their information is clear and the inside of their vehicle has been visually inspected,Ž TJ Taylor commented on the CPD's Facebookpost.T. Martin Knopes, a defense attorney based in Crestview, said the program might be problematic.I think theyre putting themselves in a sticky situation,Ž Knopes said. "What would be the basis for pulling you over?ŽPrior to the program's change, a fear expressed via social media is the program being an excuse for the CPD to make more traffic stops and catch drivers engaging in unlawful behavior without reasonable suspicion. Knopes said if a traffic stop is found to be unlawful, evi-dence obtained from that stop should not be admitted in court.We have a right to be free from government interference,Ž Knopes said. I dont care if youre (going to) give me a pizza or a gift cer-tificate to Ruths Chris. Dont bother me.ŽThe ACLU of Florida expressed similar concerns on its Facebook page.To pull someone over, the police must have reason to believe that the driver has committed a traffic violation or that the driver or a passen-ger is involved in a crime,Ž the post said. Without that, it violates the Fourth Amendment to pull someone over.ŽAccording to the CPD's Facebook post, the program will still go forward but with-out officers stopping drivers.Programs like ours have been done by police departments all over the country without issue, and also in other countries,Ž the CPD post quotes Chief Tony Taylor as saying. The program was developed purely to reward good driving. These courteous, civic-minded citizens make a significant, positive contribution to the safety of our community.Ž Community Services Offi-cer Sam Kimmons pitched the idea after seeing news reports of other police departments running similar programs. The police department in Uniontown, Ohio has run a holiday promotion the past two years, giving $100 a day to a random motorist offi-cersdeem a safe driverduring the Christmas season.There are always lots of complaints about the traffic situation here in Crestview,Ž Taylor said. Were trying to do something positive for good drivers.ŽMost of the negative com-ments, Taylor said,came from people outside the area. There were comments supporting the department and Officer Kimmons specifically.Love Sam and all of our Crestview police,Ž Jean Waite Blair commented. Keep up the good work.ŽFear not,Ž Taylor says in the CPD post. If youre pulled over in Crestview, you will not be getting a free pizza. Its because youre driving poorly and you might get a ticket instead.Ž PIZZAFrom Page A1Social media comments on the Crestview Police Departments Facebook page showed mixed reactions to their new Food From the FuzzŽ program.

The team advanced by winning a local tournament held at Shoal River Middle School in December.This isnt students first trip outside of Okaloosa County. Last year, they went all the way to the FIRST LEGO League Championship in Houston where they competed against teams from all over the world.FIRST is an acronym for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.Ž The LEGO League hosts competitions all over the country and is involved in 78 countries around the world.Noah Steele is the teams cap-tain and has been competing in FLL for three years.My favor-ite part of this is probably just getting to know the theme of this year,Ž Steele said. This helps me try to problem-solve and just basically use your mind and try to think of things that are out of the box.ŽThis years theme is hydrodynamics. The competition tasks teams with coming up with a real-world solution for a water-related problem. The team members invented a temperature-detecting sticker forwater bottles warning people that they may contain unsafe levels of bisphenol A, a chemical commonly used in the manu-facture of plastic bottles.Casey Steele is Noahs mother and one of the team coaches.Its such an amaz-ing thing that these kids have come up with,Ž she said. When they brought all their ideas together, they kind of formed this one idea on how BPA is released when the water bottle is overheated.ŽThe team consists of four stu-dents who each attend different area schools. They started out together at Bob Sikes Elemen-tary but when some of them moved on to other schools, they kept the team together by forming a new Hub City Robot-ics team.Along with learning about robotics and other engineering skills, the studentshave to learn other real-world skills like public speaking, fundrais-ing and entrepreneurship.They have to give presenta-tions,Ž Casey said. They have to learn how to research (and) come up with solutions to these real-world problems. They have to practice their speaking and get along with each other. They have to get out in their community and work with each other.ŽIf the team wins the regional championship in Panama City, it will move on to the April 8 state invitational in Jacksonville.Crestview kids headed to robotics competitionThe Hub City Robotics team poses for a team photo after winning awards for both Robot Performance and Overall Grand Champions at the Shoal River Middle School FIRST LEGO League tournament.

Our move today is an alternating upright row. The focus is the whole shoulder area and upper back. You will need a set of light to medium hand weights for this move or you can improvise with water bottles, weighing in at about 1 pound.Begin this exercise with your weights in each hand and standing. Hold your chest tall, engage your core with both arms extended down in front of your body, palms facing your thighs. Roll your shoulders back and down; you are ready to start rowing.Proceed to pull one arm straight up your body, pushing the elbow to the outside, aiming for chest/ collarbone level with your hand weight. Once you reach your highest point, slowly return the weight back to starting position at thigh level. Then begin to pull your other arm up in the same fashion. Continue this alternating row for at least 10 repetitions on each arm. Take a small break and evaluate your next set, either increasing or decreasing your weight or using no weight at all. Depending on the condition and strength of your shoul-der area, shoot for at least three sets. Keep your arms slightly in front of you, controlling the movement and not overextending your shoulders.This rowing motion is great for all levels, keeping the movement slow and methodic.

[WWW.DIXIEECHOES.COM] When a culture develops the attitude of Dont tell me what to do or how to live my life,Ž there are going to be problems. When a culture develops the mindset of If something breaks … whether an object or relationship … throw it away,Ž there are going to be problems. When a culture is governed by leaders who tend to lie, stretch the truth, or feign ignorance, there are going to be problems. When a culture develops an attitude of I dont care what might be best for everyone, Im only concerned about my own desires,Ž there are going to be problems. It can be easy to point fingers away from oneself to declare a problem in society is caused by other persons. But where do problems originate? By pointing fingers at others and saying, They are the cause of the matter, not me.Ž People tend to not want to examine their own behavior because they may learn how they contribute to the ills of society. After all, how could their small idiosyncrasies have any influence on an entire society? Well, think of dropping a pebble in a pond. It is one small act, but the ripples from that one small act spread out way beyond the epicenter. It is the same thing with what may seem to be small individual acts. Nothing is ever done in isolation. What we do and say impacts others around us. A harsh word of criticism, a slur, a curse uttered in the heat of a moment, or simply with the intent of hurting another, can have far-reaching results. That one hurt person can then hurt others, and the ripples continue on. Some who declare themselves to be Christians can be the worst offenders, often defending their act ions with self-righteous rhetoric. Mahatma Gandhi once said, I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.Ž During this season of Lent, let me invite you do reflect on the role you might be playing that contributes to the ills in our society. Do you gossip? Do you stretch the truth?Ž Do you behave selfishly? Do you pass judgment? Compare your life to the kind of life Jesus calls you to live. How do you measure up? If you do not measure up well, repent … turn away from … such behaviors. This is what I will be doing between now and Easter. The Rev. Mark Broadhead is pastor at Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Crestview.FROM THE PULPITNothing is ever done in isolationCRESTVIEW„ UpcomingNorth OkaloosaCounty events and surrounding area activities are as follows.COIN SHOW: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 24 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 25, the Meridian at Westwood, 1001 Mar Walt Drive, Fort Walton Beach.
