The list was compiled with a lot of help from theBaker Block Museum staff.1. Crestview High Schools first mascot was the Red Jackets.Ž During one of the earliest recorded football games in 1930, the Red Jackets played Milton to a tie in a scoreless game. By 1938, when the schools first band was formed, Crestview was known as the Bulldogs.2. Crestview became the county seat of Okaloosa County in an election held April 3, 1917, beating out Baker by just 85 votes with a total of 1,389 votes cast.3. Crestviews oldest business that is still oper-ating is Mack Brooks Barber Shop on Main Street, which originally opened in 1917 in the same location as Keels Barber Shop, which was owned by James Henry Keel. 4. Crestview was home to the first factory in Okaloosa County „ and the first industry to offer employment to women. The Smith-Johnson Garment Factory, later known as Alatex opened in Septem-ber 1937 and was referred to as Crestviews new city hall since government offices occupied one corner of the ground floor. The build-ing now houses the Florida A&M University College of Pharmacy.5. Crestview was at times declared off limitsŽ to airmen from Eglin Field during the late 1940s and into the 1950s due to numerous liquor and gambling establishments, which were perceived to take advantage of the young airmen.6. The Fox Theater and the Eglin Theater, both located on Crestviews Main Street, hosted a pre-miere showing of Twelve OClock HighŽ in 1949. Movie star Gregory Peck was in town for the premiere of the movie about a World War II bomber unit. The 20th Century Fox movie was filmed at Duke Field, Eglin Field and north of Crestview.10 things you didn't know about CrestviewBy Aaron Jacobs @cnb_ajacobs ajacobs@crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW „ Just how long does it take to get from one end of Crestview to the other in the afternoon?We drove from the over-pass at Duke Field to Airport Road along State Road 85 at the north end of town at two different times on a weekday afternoon. The first trip started at 2:10 p.m. and ended at 2:28 p.m., while the second trip took twice as long, start-ing at 4:40 p.m. and ending at 5:16 p.m.Crestview resident Donna Simpler has been commut-ing to her job in Fort Walton Beach from the north end of Crestview since 1985. Her commute, which she says can be up to an hour and 15 min-utes, used to be much shorter.The most aggravating part is when you get to Duke Field, all the way to Walmart, and youre stuck,Ž she said. When I was a kid, I rode my bicycle all over Crestview. There was no traffic.ŽStuck in tra cBy Aaron Jacobs @cnb_ajacobs ajacobs@crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW „ A group of Crestview kids will head to Houston next month to com-pete against robotics teams from around the world.The Hub City Robotics team was named champi-ons of the Northwest Florida FIRST LEGO League Regional Tournament, which was held in Panama City on March 3. The team advances to both the State Championship in Jacksonville on April 8 and the World Championship in Houston April 18 to 21.It will be the second trip to the World Championship for most of the team. Last year, three of the four team mem-bers went to Houston as part of the Bob Sikes Elementary School team. They each went to different schools this year, but decided to stay together as an independent team … a move that paid off.Elizabeth Vander Kooy is one of the returning members from that Bob Sikes team. She is excited to be going back to the World Championship for a second year.It feels really good,Ž she said. Last year we were going a little more for the experi-ence at Worlds, but this year we are going and we actually feel a little bit more competi-tive. We have a little more to give, and we know what were expecting.ŽCrestview robotics team wins regional tournamentBy Renee Bell 682-6524 | @cnbRenee reneeb@crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW „ Calandra Stallworth, Crestview resi-dent, has been missing since March of 2017.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, March 10, 2018 A57. In the 1920s, Moses A. Sapp domesticated the wild blueberry, turning it into a profitable commercial crop at Crestview. Many acres of blueberries were transplanted and cultivated in the Crestview area. The 1929 harvest yielded 15 train boxcars that went to northern markets.8. Crestview boasted the first hospital in Okaloosa County„ and the only one between Marianna and Pensacola „ when Dr. Olin Enzor and his brother, Dr. Jut Enzor, built the Enzor Brothers Hospital in 1926 on Highway 90 West.9. In 1929, Crestviews first airfield was located on Highway 85 South at the former site of Savage Turpentine Still, the cur-rent site of Bealls Outlet and Days Tires.10. Crestview was home to a Rosenwald School for black students in 1926 on Ratcliff Street. Julius Ros-enwald, a Jewish man who was part owner and Presi-dent of Sears Roebuck & Company, partnered with Booker T. Washington to build many of the schools across the south during the early 20th century. Ann Span is the director of the Baker Block Museum. 10 THINGSFrom Page A1of last year, Knight said. After not hearing from her, Knight filed her first missing person report that month.She used to call me everyday. This has really been hard...When Moth-er's Day comes around it just „ and the kids „ they really miss her. They talk about her a lot, so that's a good thing. Everybody's just taking one day at a time. That's all we can do.I just want ... everyone to know that we all love her. We all miss her. There's not a day goes by that we don't all think about her,Ž Knight said. Knight filed two miss-ing person reports for her daughter, the second on April 2. Police closed the first report March 27 after Stallworth informed the police department that she had taken a getaway trip to Alabama with her boy-friend and had a poor cell phone signal, according to the department.Knight said she wished the police had acted earlier.I feel like if they would have got on in there a little bit sooner, maybe we could have found some more answers. It seems like it's just slipping away. Time is slipping away and we still don't know where she is. It seems like we're still in the same spot... the same place, like we haven't moved, and it's very frustrating.ŽResponding to an email, a CPD Investigations divisionspokesperson said, It is a frustrating case, but it is most certainly not a closed case. Every shred of evidence has been investigated and every person associated with the case has been interviewed, some mul-tiple times. We welcome any information, no matter how seemingly insignificant, the public may have.ŽAnyone with information about Calandra Stallworth's case may contact Sgt. Ray Harp, 682-4157. UPDATEFrom Page A1Simpler has tried using alternate routes, such as taking 285 from Niceville, or taking PJ Adams to go around the southern end of Highway 85. But she found that neither route shortened her commute.Solutions to the traffic problem in Crestview have been discussed for years with little to show for it. One idea thats been dis-cussed at length is a bypass around the city.But a project of that scope can be difficult to get approved. Its not only the city that has to agreeto the project, but the Okaloosa County Commission and Florida Department of Transportation as well. Thats the number one topic thats been on my radar since even before I came into office,Ž City Council President J.B. Whitten said. The biggest problem we have is our north-south road is a state road, so we cant do anything without FDOT.ŽOnce a project like that does get approved by all of the government agencies involved, it can still take years to get completed. So for now, the city is working on smaller measures that can get easier approval, such as expanding roads that run parallel to Highway 85, and connecting Raspberry Road to PJ Adams Parkway, a project that is estimated to cost $8 million.Crestviews growth over the years has been a driving factor in exacerbating the traffic situation, but Sim-pler says theres more to it than just growth.There are no jobs here,Ž she said. Ive been work-ing in Fort Walton since 1985. Theres nothing here, so we all have to travel.ŽPeople that commute from the southern end of the county end up in the same traffic as Eglin Air Force Base and Duke Field employees who have found that housing in Crestview is cheaper than in the sur-rounding areas. Simpler said the traffic is noticeably worse on her way home.Going in the morning is fine,Ž she said. But in the afternoon, you dont feel good. You just want to get home. And if theres an accident, youre stuck.ŽWhitten says the work being discussed along PJ Adams, which includes widening the road, may not be enough to solve the larger traffic problem.The bottleneck doesnt start there,Ž he said. Its too late at PJ Adams. It starts way back, coming off from 123.ŽBut solutions to that problem, including a potential bypass starting well south of the city around Rattlesnake Bluff Road, could be even more difficult because of another government agency that can veto the project … Eglin Air Force Base.My understanding is it doesnt actually infringe on Eglin property, but its close enough it infringes on their mission, so they dont want that kind of traffic over there by their reservation,Ž Whitten said.Any solution on the south side of town that runs close to Eglin property would require the signoff of the bases com-manding officer. Despite that, the city and county continue to work on solu-tions that will keep pace with Crestviews growth.Previous city coun-cils have not ignored this. Previous mayors have not ignored this. They havent made any headway,Ž Whitten said. And I cant guarantee anybody Ill make any headway, but I sure spend a lot of time on it.Ž TRAFFICFrom Page A1Crestview was wellrepresented at the regional competition this year, sending a total of six teams, including the Hub City Robotics team. Three of the teams were from Davidson Middle School. One was from Shoal River Middle School and another was from Walker Elementary School. Two of those teams, the DMS LabRatz and SRMS Lethal LEGOs, also received bids to the State Championship.I was just so proud of Crestview,Ž team coach Emily Vander Kooy said. Im a local. I grew up here, so it just makes my heart happy to see so many teams from Crest-view representing this robotics community. I think if more people were aware of it, there would be a lot more involvement.ŽThe theme of this years competition was Hydro Dynamics. Teams had to identify and solve a real-world water-related problem using technology. The Hub City team developed an idea for a temperature-sensitive sticker for water bottles that warns consumers of potentially harmful levels of bisphenol A, a chemical used in the manufacture of plastic bottles that has been linked to cancer.Another event in the competition was the Robot Game, about building and programming an autono-mous robot to perform specific tasks. The robot navigates a board with different stations and performs tasks of varying degrees of difficulty. The theme of the tasks was also water-related.The trip to the World Championship comes with a price tag, though. Emily Vander Kooy estimates that the trip will cost around $10,000. Team members do a lot of the fundraising work, but the team is also looking for sponsors.If youre interested in supporting science and technology, and expanding their minds for the future, its just unreal what these kids have learned through this program and what theyll experience at the World Festival,Ž Vander Kooy said. The team will be hold-ing a fundraising event at Marquis Cinema 10 the evening of March 24. They will have their robot game table on dis-play for demonstrations and will be announcing raffle winners and taking donations for the upcom-ing trips to Houston and Jacksonville. For more information on sponsorship, visit the Hub City Robotics Facebook page, or email the team at hubcityrobotics@gmail.com.

** A6 Saturday, March 10, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin OPINION This has been a problem in the making. It has found its apex in President Donald Trumps America. Ill never forget when my credibility took a hit in 2009. I was reading a blog that included a Newt Gingrich quoteŽ mocking Supreme Court candidate Sonia Sotomayor for an ankle injury she had suffered. If you know anything about Gingrich, you know there isnt a bright bold line in his character that prevents him from saying awful things. I read a quote where Gingrich had said, Shes only wearing that fake cast to help her rack up votes. The minute shes confirmed, shell whip it off and start dancing a jig.Ž I didnt take it at face value. I tried to find the quote in other locations to confirm the content or determine that his words were twisted. Finding no second mention anywhere, I was left to make a decision. I decided to include the quote and shared my humble opinion about it in a column. I made that decision for all the wrong reasons. That was what we call a mistake. It turned out to be a quote from an Andy Borowitz satire column in the New Yorker. It wasnt long before one of Gingrichs personal assistants was on the phone with me. There were even columns calling me pathetic. In general, I would take issue with that characterization. In that specific instance, yeah, I was pathetic. I think that is why almost a decade later, I take more joy in others mistaking satire for real news. Almost a decade later, I am still a lot more careful about what information I allow into my columns. The people at Snopes recently learned their lesson as well. The fact checkers recently fact checked a fun Christian satire site named The Babylon Bee. Its like The Onion for religious folks. I will still defend myself by saying the Borowitz-created faux quote was not as outlandish or unbelievable as many things Gingrich has actually said. Snopes doesnt get that much credit. The Bee put out a satirical story about CNN buying a giant washing machine to help them spin the news before they air it. Since the story fits the recent narrative of fake newsŽ by President Trump and his supporters, Snopes found it necessary to fact check it. They felt the need to tell people CNN didnt really buy a giant news spinning washing machine. Welcome to America in 2018. Believe it or not, Snopes determined that CNN has not, in fact, purchased that machine. One troubling aspect of the story is that Facebook sent a warning to the Babylon Bee because their newsŽ had been determined to be incorrect. About a year ago, after realizing how their site was being used as a major distributor for fake news and false information, Facebook asked for helped from fact checkers. It didnt go so well in this case. The Babylon Bee is clearly labeled as a Christian satire site. Other recent headlines include: „ Megachurch Stage Collapses Under Pastors Massive EgoŽ „ Report: Closeness To God Linked To Constantly Telling Friends What You Gave Up For LentŽ „ and Seminary Offers Degree In Advanced Meme-MakingŽ Obviously, no one checked into the source before starting the fact checking process. Facebooks warning cited Snopes independent fact checkingŽ and warned the Bee that, repeat offenders will see their distribution reduced and their ability to monetize removed.Ž Facebook built itself into the worlds paperboy. I cant think of a site that has helped digital news sites find readers for their stories. Because of that, Facebook constantly tinkers with how they deliver that news so they make more money. At first, the goal was to build a huge audience. Then, Facebook started only allowing you access to part of that audience. Then they created methods that you could spend money to reach more of the audience you created. They control the news people see and make tons of money doing it. During the 2016 election, they were used by nefarious characters to push fake stories. Now they are being forced to use fact checking to try to rebuild their credibility. News distribution going to the highest bidder had obvious issues even before people with impure motives started buying access to American voters for fake news stories. The social media giants attempt to fact check all sites including satire sites a year after the process began hasnt exactly been a confidence builder that things are going to get a lot better soon.

My class is studying the 50 states and I have chosen Florida as my state. Our assignment is to find out as much about our states as we can and I was wondering if you would help me out. Would you be willing to send me any information about your state? Some examples could be maps, brochures, souvenirs or anything else that would be helpful. [Send to: Mr. Van Winkles 5th6th grade class/Seth, Faith Christian School, P.O. Box 3048, Kearney, NE 68848.] We will be having our states fair at the end of the school year to display all of our information. Thank you! Sincerely,Seth Faith Christian School, Kearney, NebraskaMcDonalds adding management, hospitality team members Dear editor, Hello Crestview, Not only are we providing our awesome community with a brand new, state-of-the-art McDonalds restaurant and Space Age-themed Indoor Playplace opening March 15, we have hired an entirely new Management and Hospitality Staff. We have also hired 30 new team members this week! As the owner/operators of all three newly remodeled Crestview restaurants,we have listenedand will continue to strive to be the best quick service restaurant, providing the quality food and customer service that you want and deserve! Thanks for your continued patronage and support! We welcome your suggestions and comments at http://www. mcdmc.com/contact.asp.Roslyn Snyder Director of Marketing and Community Relations Costa EnterprisesLETTERS TO THE EDITORIm old enough to remember when smoking was cool. There were billboards and catchy TV jingles that even a kid could sing: Winston tastes good like a (clap-clap) cigarette should!Ž Who didnt want to be a cowboy after that most-American of icons invited us to Come to where the flavor is. Come to Marlboro CountryŽ? Finally, women could stop carping about equality, thanks to Virginia Slims: Youve got your own cigarettes, now, baby! Youve come a long, long way!Ž Fifty years ago, 42 percent of Americans smoked. Today, its 22 percent. What changed? The culture did. What worked in old Bette Davis movies„ lovers languidly blowing smoke in each others faces„ would be hooted off the screen today. American GIs were told smoke em if you got em,  and they did, courtesy of the government, which gave them free cigarettes. Imagine the response to such a policy today. It isnt time and fashion alone that have changed how we view smoking. Once it was learned how deadly and dangerous cigarettes really are, awareness went up and demand went down.Candy cigarettesAlso, law follows culture. I can remember going to the corner store at 8 or 9 and buying Pall Malls for my grandmother. No one thought anything of it. Plus, we kids had our own candy cigarettes. They tasted like chalk, with a bit of sugar thrown in. We pretended to puff and blow smoke just like the adults, right before we got bored and ate them. Today, its all but illegal for kids to touch a real cigarette. Stores that still sell tobacco products to minors today likely are breaking other laws, too. The point is, culture is the real driver behind what we decide to change. Doctors used to smoke in their offices. Now, you cant even smoke in an outdoor stadium. That shaking you felt last month was a seismic shift in Americans attitudes toward the accessibility of assault-style weapons. No amount of smearing, spinning or money is going to reverse the momentum of millions of traumatized high school students who are about to become registered voters. Theyre changing the culture. If the laws dont follow soon, they may well toss out the people who make them.Lehman gets it rightRecently, the Miami Herald did a stellar job of detailing alleged Stoneman Douglas High School shooter Nikolas Cruzs violent and troubled life. One quote stands out: When I met him, I knew there was something weird about him. There was something off,Ž Manolo Alvarez, 17, told the paper. He was a really quiet kid. He would get bullied a lot.Ž In Canton, Ohio, Lehman Middle School recently endeavored to help put a stop to the kind of isolation and bullying that can trigger such tragedy. On Feb. 9, members of the Stark County Fatherhood Coalition and Pro Football Hall of Fame Gold Jacket Andre Tippett visited Lehman to take part in the national No One Eats Alone DayŽ to encourage students to reach out to others who might feel isolated. Lets hope schools everywhere do so, and more than once a year. Social isolation is like a scent for bullies.

[SPECIAL TO THE PRESS GAZETTE] By Aaron Jacobs @cnb_ajacobs | ajacobs@ crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW „ A new healthcare provider is taking patients in Crestview.Myron Faircloth, a board-certified nurse practitioner, joined the staff of Gateway Medical Clinic, an affiliate of North Okaloosa Medical Center December of 2017. Faircloth comes to Crestview from Valdosta, Ga., where he practiced family medicine for more than 10 years.Faircloth specializes in family medicine, including comprehensive healthcare, preventative care and health risk assessments. He also provides routine checkups, immunizations and screen-ing tests.While in Valdosta, Fair-cloth served on the Lowndes County Board of Health. In that capacity, he worked with clinics managed by the board.One was a clinic that was for the working uninsured, so our role was to look at the disease process, look at the financial aspects of that,Ž he said.Faircloth has a passion for providing healthcare to people who are typically underserved and lack access, particularly in rural areas.In a perfect world, wed all have money, access, everything,Ž he said. But sometimes you have to go to those areas, and thats the problem. The rural areas are where theres a lack of providers. We need to be in those rural areas.ŽThat lack of providers is one aspect that attracted Faircloth to North Okaloosa. Another aspect is family. His sister,a registered nurse, lives in Niceville with her husband and children. Faircloth said he wanted to be closer to family that he has not been able to see as often as he would like.The adjustment from rural Georgia to Crestview has not been a major issue for Faircloth.Its like anything else, getting used to where things are at,Ž he said. As far as the patient load, its simi-lar to what I was practicing with. There are just a lot of people that need healthcare because of the lack of access.You can only see so many patients in a day, in a year, and sometimes you need extra providers.
