Rick Scott stopped in Northwest Florida Feb. 28 to promote his $500 million school safety plan. The governor met with sheriffs from five area counties at the Walton County Sheriffs Office in Defuniak Springs on Feb. 28, the first day Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students returned to school following the Feb. 14 mass shooting at the school.What happened at Stoneman Doug-las in Parkland has reinvigorated the national conversation on school safety. Gun control, mental health and increas-ing security within schools are among a range of issues being discussed. Scott called on experts in these fields for input.The visit was part of the governors statewide tour to talk about his plan to increase school safety. Scott stood alongside law enforcement officers to do so.The money will be spent really primarily in three areas: more law enforcement, significant law enforce-ment presence at all of our schools; mental health counselors at our schools; hardening of all of our schools; and on top of that, some money for Depart-ment of Children and Families to have more teams to go out and work with our youth,Ž Scott said.Walton County Sheriff Michael Adkinson introduced Governor Scott.What you have here is a united, dedicated front saying we believe the proposal made by Governor Rick Scott is the most significant improvement to the safety and well-being of our children proposed in my 25-year career,Ž Adkinson said.The governor said that the state has the money to fund the $500 million dollar proposal and that it was impor-tant to pass the legislation during the current session.Okaloosa County Sheriff Larry Ashley was one of the area sheriffs invited to appear with the governor. Ashley was enthusiastic about the plan and appreciated that the governor took the input of local sheriffs into account in devel-oping the plan. Ashley said addressing Gov.

Some have bargain bags and ice cream, others have hair salons and charitable causes. And every time you step inside, the inventory is different. These busi-nesses not only boost the economy, but some also boost the downtown district. Heres a sampling of what you might find.

But inside Exodos Thrift Store, youre bound to find something you love for $1 and youre helping locals in need as well. The store opened six years ago to help raise funds for residential drug and alcohol rehab ministry in Baker, but instead has become a ministry of its own, providing clothes to home goods to families after house fires and blan-kets to homeless individuals.We meet the needs of people who are hurting,Ž said Kyra Crowson, founder and manager of Exodos Thrift Store. Its like therapy.

[JENNIE MCKEON/DAILY NEWS] By Wendy Victora 315-4478 | @WendyVnwfdn wvictora@nwfdailynews.comIn a part of the world dotted with posts and service orga-nizations catering to active duty military and veterans, it may seem difficult to find a way to stand out. But a small Veterans of Foreign War post just outside of Crestview defined its own niche.In a move that predates most of the current members, VFW Post 5450 apparently proclaimed itself the Friend-liest Post in Florida.ŽThat was, until very recently, posted on its Face-book page. A sign on the building, which is on U.S. Highway 90, labels it the Friendliest Little Post in Northwest Florida.ŽCurrent commander Warren Wiedemann is new to the area and to the post. He good-naturedly identifies himself as the commander of the friendliest post, while admitting that hes not sure how the post earned that designation.Weve been asking some of the gentlemen who have been around for a while,Ž he said. We havent come up with what the origin was.The ones who actually know the answer may not be around anymore.ŽWiedemann, who is one of the youngest members at age 43, says his post has been reaching out to young families and even built a playground behind the post. They are friendly, he said, but stopped short of comparing his post to others in the Panhandle and the state.We try to live by it,Ž he said of the motto on the building. Were a very family friendly place.ŽFolks at other area posts say that while they dont want to be selfish, theyre pretty sure their posts are just as friendly as 5450.We are friendly here,Ž said a bartender at one in the south end of the county. Every-body is just like a family over here. Everybody knows each other and tells their stories.ŽAnd out in Mary Esther, the Spectre Post com-mander, Mike Dorris, got on the phone personally to share his thoughts.I think I can speak for most VFW commanders in the state of Florida, everybody thinks theyre the friendliest post in Florida,Ž he said.Friendliest post in Florida?

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, March 3, 2018 A5Hughes described her devotion to the library and its mission. The library's mission of serving the community as a place that is so much more than a book repository was Sandra's passion,Ž he said.Other librarians at the Crestview Library and other Okaloosa County Libraries described her as warm and cheerful, a force and a motherly figure.Brian Corlew, who succeeded Dreaden as chair of the Government Issues Committee when her term expired, remembers her as being deeply devoted to the committee and the issues they discussed.You could tell she was invested,Ž Corlew said. Any time someone came to speak, she would always have insightful questions. When she did something, she did it with compassion.Ž DREADENFrom Page A1this issue is vital to maintaining the publics trust that children will be safe attending public schools.Every parent in the state„every parent in our country„should be very comfortable when they send their child to school; their child is going to come home safely,Ž Scott said. SCHOOLFrom Page A1For nearly six years, Exodos has been serving the city of Crestview. Much of the inventory is clothing in the front of the store „ just $3 a pop „ but like any thrift store, theres always something unique tucked away on a shelf.Theres often times the store receives a donation so unique that the staff doesnt even know what to label it.People are so good to us and donate regularly... but sometimes we get stuff and we dont even know what it is,Ž Crowson said with a laugh. Ill hold it up and ask customers, Alright everybody, what is this? Sometimes theres illegal paraphernalia we have to call in. Weve seen it all.ŽThe best part about work-ing at a thrift store is snagging some bargains for yourself.We all leave a little bit poorer than we were,Ž Crow-son said. But it enriches the community.Ž Business within a businessVendor markets have become a growing trend in the retail world, including Crestview. Old Time Antiques has been a downtown staple for more than a decade. More than two years ago, it became Old Time Antiques & MORE when new owner, Kari Howard took over the store. Since then, she has added quite a lot more.Howards appreciation of antiques comes from her par-ents who were coin collectors, I love the thrill of the hunt,Ž she said. But stores like Old Time Antiques, along with other local vendor markets dont just specialize in the old. Theres also repurposed furni-ture, DIY crafts and all sorts of handmade goods.Its nice to bring some of the furniture pieces back to life,Ž Howard said, Somebody else gets to love it.ŽAt Old Time, theres more than 30 vendors with all kinds of thins for sale. In the back of the store, youll even find a hair salon run by Cat Mathis who stays so busy she doesnt even advertise. The vendor market is the perfect spot since her aesthetic is vintage retro,Ž she said. Her salon is decorated with vintage Barbie dolls and Elvis Presley memorabilia.We have a husband and wife vendors „ he makes the furni-ture and she paints,Ž Howard said. We have one vendor who is a 90-year-old World War II veteran. Its like having a busi-ness within a business.Ž SHOPFrom Page A1


** A6 Saturday, March 3, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin FAITHOne of my favorite authors is the late Henri Nouwen. He was a Jesuit priest in the Roman Catholic tradition. He is a favorite author because he "got it." He got that God is not a God of wrath or vengeance. God is not one to punish willy-nilly, nor toy with us. He got that the world hurts people. Lies are told to us and about us. We are told in so many ways that we have to prove we are worthy of love, of acceptance, of being in any relationship. We are often told by people who matter the most that we will never amount to much of anything, or we are doomed to failure. We are told in various ways that we are stupid, or unattractive, or a loser. Because people hear these kinds of comments often enough and strongly enough, they are taken to heart. We believe them, if not consciously, then subconsciously. They then become self-fulfilling prophecies. What Nouwen "got" is we are worthy of God's love, grace, and forgiveness. Period. We don't have to earn it. We don't have to prove we are perfect enough to get it. Simply by the fact that we have been born we are loved. As Nouwen so eloquently put it: "You were the beloved before your father, mother, brother, sister or church loved you or hurt you. You are the beloved because you belong to God from all eternity. God loved you before you were born, and God will love you after you die." The prophet Jeremiah delivered God's word in verse Jeremiah 31:3: "I have loved you with an everlasting love." God called Jesus, "my Beloved." And because Christians are called sisters and brothers of Jesus Christ, we too are God's beloved. We are loved beyond anything we can ever imagine. I wonder what would happen if more people could hear this and accept it? Did not God prove how much he loves us by leaving the throne of heaven to live on this world as Jesus Christ? Did God not teach us his ways through the tremendous lessons of Jesus? Did not God allow himself to be put to death on a cross so our sins could be forgiven and we return to him? How much more must God do to get us to understand that we are loved so much by God that he did everything to prove it? Actually, the ball is now in your court.
