Some of the new features include automated ordering kiosks, mobile ordering, and an almost entirely new staff. But the centerpiece of the remodel is a new space-themed PlayPlace, complete with interactive games and a two-story play area.Costa Enterprises owns all three McDonalds restau-rants in Crestview, along with 17 other locations around Northwest Florida. The James Lee location was the last of the Crestview McDonalds to be upgraded.The company has used underwater themes in PlayPlaces at some of its other locations, but chose to go with an entirely new theme for this location.We just wanted to do something totally different than what weve done before,Ž Vice President of Operations David Costa Jr. said. So we thought it would be kind of cool to make something that was animated and fun and enjoyable for the kids.ŽThe new area for kids fea-tures a more traditional play area with a slide and other features, but also includes interactive games. There is a row of touch screen stations, a touch screen tabletop with various multi-player games to choose from, and an inter-active table that lights up in response to touch.The interactive table is a brand new element that were just trying out,Ž Costa said. It allows the kids just to be able to play right on Space-themed playground part of McDonalds remodelBy Aaron Jacobs @cnb_ajacobs ajacobs@crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW „ Okaloosa County Commissioner Graham Fountain was a guest speaker March 12 at the Shoal River Republican Clubs monthly meeting.Fountain, who represents most of the city of Crestview, spoke mainly on the issues of school safety and traffic.He talked about multiple ideas that he thinks could help the traffic problem but said one of the biggest obstacles was a lack of funding. One potential solution he talked about was extending the bed tax to the north end of Okaloosa County in order to justify using more county funds for building roads around Crestview.Fountain said that with more people carpooling and buying smaller cars, the revenue from gas taxes has fallen in recent years, reducing the amount of funding available for some road projects.Weve been working as well together on that as anything Ive seen,Ž Fountain said, referring to cooperation between the city and county to resolve the traffic problem. He also talked about a potential upcoming workshop with representatives from the city, county, state and Eglin Air Force Base.He also brought up the topic of school safety, discussing the recent shooting in Parkland and the school safety bill the Florida legislature passed.In addition to Fountain, three candidates for Okaloosa County School Board attended. Bran McAllister and Diane Kelley are running for the dis-trict five seat, and Joe Slusser is running in district three.Each school board candi-date offered their take on how best to address school safety. McAllister cited his military experience as a qualification for securing schools. Kelley talked about the need to make schools more secure without making them feel confined and unwelcoming. Slusser said more fencing was needed to allow for a single point of entry, citing schools in more densely-populated areas.

After the course closed, Wilks took a job in Orlando and eventually moved his family there. He decided to keep the home as a rental property but found it hard to attract renters to a house that sits on an aban-doned golf course.Wilks, who has worked in the golf industry before, said he was disappointed when the club closed.We went to take our daughters down to the pool, after we had already paid our membership,Ž Wilks said. When we got there, the pool was closed and was not being maintained.ŽApril ODaniels lives near the 18th hole.

Thomas said the owners struggled to make a profit in the face of falling demand. Its very expensive to keep (golf courses) in top shape,Ž Thomas said. We just didnt have the money to keep it up. For a long time, we just tried to cut expenses so we could pay the mortgage.People just stopped playing golf. It was sort of a snowball effect.ŽThomas said tourists had previously been a large source of revenue but when courses in Destin lowered their rates, people stopped coming to the north end of the county for cheaper course fees.Golf courses across the country have been closing for more than a decade. As of 2016, more than 1,400 golf courses had closed in Florida since 2000. In Crestview, Adara Golf Course, formerly Shoal River Country Club, closed its doors in 2009. Heritage Plantation Golf and Country Club in Laurel Hill shut down the same year. The Frank W. Dahlinger Golf Course aboard Naval Air Station Whiting Field closed June of 2015.The Foxwood property is currently held by First City Bank of Florida. A representa-tive from First City confirmed that they took possession of the property and are currently looking for intere sted buyers.Thomas said he hopes that either another ownership group or the city is able to purchase the golf course and eventually reopen it.

We have been involved with three Building Homes for Heroes construction projects for wounded soldiers, but this is the first time a bank has ever donated a lot,Ž Wise said.Randy Wise Homes will still provide the same building services we normally do, but we are donating our building fee.

** A4 Saturday, March 17, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin FAITHShortly after my parents died, my wife and I received an unusual inheritance: Cinderella. Cinderella is a 10-yearold cat who adopted my parents shortly after giving birth to her first litter of kittens when she was about one year old. She was a feral cat who gave birth in the pouring rain just outside the back door of my parents apartment. When my parents heard the commotion, they checked to see what was going on and Cinderella, uninvited, carried her brood, one by one, into my parents apartment, placed them under their bed, cleaned them up, nursed them, and started motherhood. The kittens were all eventually given to good homes, but Cinderella stayed with my parents and was loved and well cared for. I find myself wondering what may have happened to her before she found a loving home. There are some things that still make her very, very wary. One is, she becomes very afraid when an attempt is made to pick her up. Its only after she is held and petted for a few moments that she allows herself to relax. There are emotional scars from her past that make her skittish these years later. She is not much different than many people who have scars from past events. These scars are emotional and spiritual. They often come about because of unmet expectations they had of God, the Lord, or the church. Some turn to God in a time of great need, try to make deals, and expect God to give them exactly what they desire, only to have those expectations not met their way. Some give their life to Jesus and expect all their problems and trials to simply disappear, only to be disappointed when life continues to throw them curves. Some join a church and expect to be among perfect people who will care for their every need, only to find out the church is full of people who struggle with matters in life. These unmet expectations leave scars and make one wary, but you will find a comfort you did not expect if you allow yourself to remember the following: €God does not necessarily give what you desire, but what you need. €Jesus does not take away your problems and trials, but gives you strength, courage, and support to deal with them as they arise. €The church is not full of perfect people, but filled with people who are willing and able to support and encourage one another on this journey of life. Cinderella grows less fearful each time she realizes being picked up will give her loving attention. I hope that one day she will look forward to being held. You will grow less fearful each time you trust God and realize God will do for you exactly what is needed at the time. Give God a chance. The Rev. Mark Broadhead is pastor at Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Crestview.FROM THE PULPITHolding Cinderella M a r k B r o a d h e a d Mark Broadhead By Renee Bell 682-6524 | @cnbRenee reneeb@crestviewbulletin.comBAKER „ Pilgrim Rest Baptist Churchs youth pastor, Justin Douglas, is accepting applications for youth volunteers, and North Okaloosa home-owners in need.Douglas is a coordinator for Do Something, a national student camp mission project in which church youths tackle home repair and improve-ment projects free of charge for those who qualify.Anyone in need, as wellchurch youth groups, may apply at no later than May 1.

[AARON JACOBS | NEWS BULLETIN] Whitten referred to the upcoming referendum on the city government in August, where the city of Crestview will vote on whether to change the citys charter and form of government.Crestviews current mayor, David Cadle,com-pletes his third term as the citys chief executive in 2019. Whitten said Cadle, who has not yet announced if he plans to run for another term, was one of the first people he reached out to when he decided to run.Whitten first ran for city council in 2015 as an at-large candidate after retiring from the U.S. Air Force, and later from teaching high school. He said he was motivated to get involved in local politics after teaching classes on American government.CommunicationCommunication is the main issue Whitten plans to focus on in his campaign.Transportation is the biggest issue we have in Crestview, but I think what Id like to be able to run on is the fact that we in government dont communicate very well,Ž Whitten said. I see a lack of communication within the city government, between the city govern-ment and the people, and between the city and the sister cities. We should be out there leading the pack as the largest city in Oka-loosa County, and I think a lot of times were not taking that charge.ŽWhitten cited his back-ground in psychology, which includes a degree in counseling, as a key qualification to be able to address that issue. August referendumWhitten said he will continue to focus on the August referendum and changing the form of government.To me, the key element to the whole referendum is education,Ž Whitten said. You cant ask people to vote on something to change if they dont even know what they have and what you want to change to.Ž If the citizens of Crest-view vote to adopt a city manager form of govern-ment in the referendum, which Whitten favors, the mayor would have a reduced role in the city government.Its a whole different role, but its a role that I think I could do very well based on my back-ground,Ž Whitten said.The municipal elections in Crestview are scheduled for March 2019, but Whitten chose to announce his candidacy a full year ahead of Election Day. He said the reason for announcing so far in advance was to be able to raise money in what could be a race against a popular incumbent.Whitten is entering the last year of his city coun-cil term, leaving his seat available in 2019.I feel like Ive done what I need to do and Im ready to move on,Ž Whit-ten said.

** A6 Saturday, March 17, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin OPINION Every bad political idea starts with a false premise. The Affordable Care ActŽ lie, that we had an awful health care system and government could fix it and save families $2,500 a year,Ž spawned the ObamaCare disaster. The Bush-era intelligence agencies fibs were that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and we had to stop him. Thousands of lives and countless wounded later, we rule the rubble after our $1 trillion social studies lesson. With that lie and post-9/11 hysteria came the Patriot Act, which sacrificed freedoms (not patriotic). It created the TSA (Thousands Standing AroundŽ), the Department of Homeland Security, and the FISA court spying on U.S. citizens. Result: the Mueller Witch Hunt. A liberal, a conservative and a libertarian walk into a bar and the bartender says, What will you have, President Trump?Ž Displaying his liberal side, Trump agreed this week to consider stricter gun controls and yielded to the pandering populist economic idea of tariffs. Welfare reform might be next. The difference between a welfare beneficiary and a tariff? If you held a gun to both their heads, the welfare queen might work. Tariffs go against GOP doctrine. The southern evangelicals quickly forgave Trump for cavorting with porn star Stormy Daniels since the economy is roaring and they are getting raises. But if Wal-Mart raises the price of a bass boat because of his aluminum tariffs, the honeymoon might be over. Americans still love Trumps border wall and immigration policy. We are tired of Guatemalans coming to America and taking the low-paying jobs of our Mexicans. We did not fight the Civil War for this; our nation fought it to determine forever that slaves would no longer do the menial jobs in America and that illegal immigrants would. But Trump continues to defy conventional wisdom of the body politic,Ž which would say hed be dead by now. Hes the Keith Richards of politics. The reason? Poly-tics defines Washington D.C. by meaning many ticks.Ž Trump is rich; he is not beholden to the GOP, NRA or any predetermined dogma. He comes to D.C. with no ticks on him, if you dont count Jared Kushner. America loves that. Trumps tariffs have also angered our allies. The UK Prime Minister released an official statement that they were very disappointed,Ž harsh language for the Brits. Very DisappointedŽ is their highest security threat level and punishment for terrorist bombers, right ahead of Tsk, tsk,Ž and Blimey.Ž A casualty of the tariff debate was free-trader Gary Cohn. I worked with Gary at Goldman Sachs, and Trump lost a good man. Trump had tariff advocate and White House Trade Advisor Peter Navarro battle it out with Gary Cohn in his office, The ApprenticeŽ-style. He likes that team of rivalsŽ approach. Let two people like Omarosa and Gary Busey compete and you get the best outcome. Next, Trump plans to put a humidifier and a dehumidifier in his office and let them battle it out. And that, my friends, will determine our humidity going forward. Tariffs like this one, favoring some U.S. industries over others, are crony capitalism and an industrial swing-state political ploy. Tariffs are more popular in Wisconsin than Aaron Rodgers jerseys. In some degree, steel tariffs have been imposed by every president since Nixon „ and then adjusted. They are invariably kickbacks to unions and their executives at the expense of employees of other non-protected industries, and every consumer in America, because tariffs are inflationary. Trumps risk is that protectionism, a fast-growing economy, and loss of cheap illegal immigrant labor are all inflationary. They can hurt; just ask Jimmy Carter. Many believe the Civil War was fought over the souths secession after Abraham Lincoln imposed the Morrill Tariff Act of 1861. Slavery would have ended in due course, and the Civil War (and a half million American deaths) might have been avoided with diplomacy „ and if South Carolinians at Ft. Sumter had not gotten jumpy and been so damn trigger happy. Yet, in a recent poll Lincoln was voted our best president ever (and probably their favorite car) by political science professors. College professors listed President Trump dead last: shocker! Lincoln fought unnecessary wars, bitterly divided our country along racial lines, provoked hatred from Democrats, imposed dangerous tariffs, and made a leading actor of the day want to kill him. So tell me, how was he much different from Trump? Ron Hart is a libertarian op-ed humorist and awardwinning author. Contact him at or @RonaldHart on Twitter. Whats your view?

The health of a 50-year-old person in prison is comparable to the health of a 65-year-old. That is not a good thing, especially when you consider nearly every state and the federal government are seeing an increase in elderly prisoners. According to The Pew Charitable Trust, in Virginia for instance, 822 state prisoners were 50 and over in 1990, about 4.5 percent of all inmates. By 2014, that number had grown to 7,202, or 20 percent of all inmates. The aging population and increasing number of inmates with chronic health conditions in prisons have led states and the federal government to adopt measures that could result in the compassionate release of some of those prisoners. Unfortunately, the release of ailing inmates has been anything but compassionate. Due to the slow and cumbersome nature of the process and high denial rates, many infirm and terminally ill inmates die waiting on decisions. According to a recent investigation by The Marshall Project and the New York Times, from 2013 to 2017, the Federal Bureau of Prisons approved six percent of the 5,400 applications for compassionate release, while 266 inmates who applied died in custody awaiting a decision. Congress created compassionate release as a way to release certain inmates, such as the terminally ill, when it becomes inequitableŽ to keep them in prison any longer. Supporters view the program as a humanitarian measure and a sensible way to reduce health care costs for ailing and elderly inmates who pose little risk to public safety, reported the Times. In 1984, the federal government abolished parole. Instead of indeterminate sentences, with a minimum and maximum, the feds adopted determinate sentencing or a flat sentence of specific duration. After abolishing parole, according to the Times, Congress created compassionate release as a safety valve, giving judges the power to retroactively cut sentences short in extraordinary and compellingŽ circumstances. A 2015 study entitled The United States Compassionate and Geriatric Release Laws,Ž found of the 50 states, District of Columbia and federal government 47 have some legal procedure or precedent for incarcerated people or their families to petition for early release based on advanced age or health. Only five corrections systems„ Illinois, Massachusetts, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Utah„ do not have statutory schemes for early release. California is one of those states with compassionate release. Inmates who are terminally ill and have six months or less to live, or those inmates who are incapacitated or in a vegetative state and require 24-hour skilled nursing care, are eligible. According to the Monterey Bay Justice Project, during a period of 12 months between 2016 and 2017, in Californias only correctional hospice unit, 53 qualified inmates applied for compassionate release. We had six granted, but some died before release,Ž said the Rev. Keith Knauf, director of Pastoral Care in the Hospice Unit. Compassionate release is not only economically sound it is morally the right thing to do. Terminally ill, handicapped and infirm inmates are generally not a threat to society and although they have been convicted of a crime they are entitled to some dignity as they, and their families, deal with the anguish of failing health and the end of life.Few prisoners bene t from compassionate release Address: 638 N.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, March 17, 2018 A7 By News Bulletin contributorEGLIN AIR FORCE BASE„ The 33rd Fighter Wing hosted Ethan Ibi, 11,and his family for the Pilot for a DayŽ pro-gram March 9 at Eglin Air Force Base.Ethan, who has a rare form of dwarfism,zipped up his very own flight suit and attached some special patches to join the rest of the F-35A Lightning II pilots in the wing.The bases host wing, the 96th Test Wing, played a major role in Ethans day.The 96th Security Forces Squad-ron greeted theIbi family at the front gate and escorted them with lights and sirens.We were so moved to see each person and their role in this event,Ž Ethans mother Brooke Ibi said. There was clearly so much effort put into this. Ethan was made to feel like a total rock star by each person we encountered. We expected to go and have a good time as a family, but this day exceeded our expectations tenfold.ŽEthan loves the movie Harry and the Hendersons.Ž During his visit, he received an intelligence and mission briefing on how to find Big Foot in the local area. Ethan set out on a quest to find Harry with the 58th Fighter Squadron Gorillas.Ž While he didnt actually locate Big Foot, they had a blast trying,Ž his mother said. She saidWe do not expect for our son to be treated in a spe-cial way by others. We dont expect for people to go above and beyond for him, but they absolutely did.ŽHe had the opportunity to sit in the cockpit of an F-35A Lightning II and overlook the base from the air traffic con-trol tower while speaking with pilots in the sky. Ethan was also able to watch a mil-itary working dog in action and spray a firefighters water hose.For Ethan, with his condi-tion, being different means not being able to do so many things that he loves,Ž Brooke said. All of us struggle with something, but he wears his struggle for the whole world to see. People see his struggle before he ever speaks a word. That can be a lot for a person to handle.ŽThe Pilot for a Day program provides an opportunity for school-age children with spe-cial needs to experience what its like to be a pilot and learn about what goes on behind the scenes to make their job possible. The wing selects a childrandomly from a pool of applicants sent in by various teachers in area school dis-tricts. Ethan was chosen from over 20 applicants. Thanks for giving our son a chance to pretend that he was a part of that life with you guys,ŽBrooke said. He truly felt like he made real friends through this and we are so thrilled to have been a part of something so meaningful.ŽCrestview resident is Pilot for a Day at 33rd Fighter WingEthan Ibi, pilot for a day, poses with the 58th Fighter Squadron GorillasŽ pilots March 9 at Eglin Air Force Base.
