It might look a little peculiar.If you were to drive north on Highway 85, the city limits would begin to run alongside the left of the highway at the start of the Shoal River Bridge. You would not enter the city limits until you were in front of the auto dealerships just north of Riverwood Drive. You would then exit the city limits at Stillwell Boulevard before re-entering the city limits in front of Crestview High School. Finally, you would end up back in the county after crossing Air-port Road.The line between city and county affects everything from emergency services to infrastructure to the ability to vote in municipal elections. Strangely-shaped city outlines are not rare, especially in Florida where the city limits are determined mainly by voluntary annexation, but Crestview looks more extreme than some of its neighbors.Voluntary annexation means that land owners must petition the city government to make their piece of land part of the city. It happens often with new or proposed subdivisions, as developers will apply for annexation to take advantage of the benefits of being within city limits.ÂThere are many reasons why developers want to build in the city and why people want to live in the city," Crest-view Growth Management Director Teresa Gaillard said, "utility services, potable water, sanitary sewer, storm water retention and maintenance; life safety services such as fire and police protection, which can also factor into homeowners' insurance savings."The way the boundaries are drawn creates an unusual dynamic. Aside from the exam-ple of driving along Highway 85, City Council President J.B. Whitten offers an even starker example.Â(Police Chief) Tony Taylor walks out of the police station and heÂs on city property,ÂŽ Whitten said. ÂIf he walks over to the back of CEFCO, heÂs on county property. As heÂs cross-ing (highway 85), heÂs back on city property.ÂŽEmergency servicesEven in the middle of what most would consider to be Crestview, you might find yourself in an unincorporated area of the county.

ÂA special needs shel-ter is really a shelter of last resort for people who have some special health conditions,ÂŽ health department director Dr. Karen Chapman said. ÂThey may need oxygen. They may need electricity. They may have mobility issues.ÂBut itÂs sort of like a little home away from home. They are encour-aged and really required to bring a caregiver, and theyÂll manage all their own medications through the process.ÂŽThe school has not been used as a special needs shelter since 2004 when Hurricane Ivan struck the area. This year was the first year the health department used the gymnasium as their pri-mary area for evacuees, rather than individual classrooms.During the exercise, the gym was filled with 80 beds to accommodate evacuees. It was split into four sections for ambulatory patients, non-ambulatory patients, patients requiring oxygen and patients requiring electricity for medical purposes, such as charging an electric wheelchair.The training exercise involved splitting health department employees into two groups, with one group playing the role of evacuees and the other group filling the roles they would normally fill in an evac-uation situation. The groups later switched so that everyone received Health department trains for hurricane seasonBy Aaron Jacobs @cnb_ajacobs | ajacobs@ crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW Â„ Easter weekend is coming up fast, and there are plenty of family-friendly Easter activities in Crestview.The Easter holiday coin-cides with the return of warm weather in Northwest Florida, making it the perfect opportunity to get kids involved in outdoor activities.

Gardeners have already started moving seedlings outside in anticipa-tion of transplanting them.Since it began, the garden has been an outlet for people from all walks of life to work together on a community-level project. The garden allows members of the community to come in and work a small plot, or multiple plots of land, regardless of skill level, ability or even income.ÂWe want money to never be an impediment for somebody starting to garden with us, and so weÂve got all the hand tools, gloves, seeds, seed-lings,ÂŽ Director Cathy Ward said. ÂItÂs a really neat proj-ect because somebody can not know anything and not have anything and not be able to afford anything and we can help them get started.ÂŽPlanting seeds in livesEsther Phelps, left, and Cathy Ward pose for a photo at the Common Ground Community Garden.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, March 24, 2018 A3 HOME & GARDENBy Aaron Jacobs @cnb_ajacobs | ajacobs@ crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW Â„ Are you your lawnÂs worst enemy?Cultivating a healthy lawn in Florida is no easy task, but there are some things you may be doing that hurt more than help.Larry Williams, an expert in residential hor-ticulture at the University of FloridaÂs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension office in Crestview, offers tips for growing and keeping healthy grass.ÂThere are common mistakes people make that result in the lawn either costing them more money than it should or causing the lawn to thin out and actually die,ÂŽ he said.Williams said there are five areas people need to pay attention to in order to maintain a healthy lawn: grass type, square footage, water levels, mowing height and fertilizer.1. Grass typeÂAll of the lawn grasses that we grow are foreign,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂThey did not exist here. They were brought here from other countries. YouÂre kind of starting out with trying to grow something thatÂs not in their element.ÂŽCentipede grass and St. Augustine grass are the two main types of grass used residentially in Northwest Florida. ItÂs important to know what type of grass youÂre work-ing with, because weed killers and herbicides do different things to differ-ent grasses. A particular weed killer can be bad for one type of grass, but per-fectly fine for another.2. Yard sizeIt is also important to know the size of the yard youÂre working in. Most pesticides, weed killers and fungicides recommend amounts to use based on the square footage of the lawn. This means not only measuring the size of your yard, but subtracting the size of any area where grass doesnÂt grow, such as pools and sheds.Williams says people almost always use two to three times the amount of fertilizer that they need in one application. They also fertilize too early, too many times during the year and too late.ÂTheyÂre really overdoing it, and that lawn is costing them more than it should,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂAnd some lawn grasses, especially centipede grass, are unfor-giving. It will not forgive you if youÂre slightly heavy-handed with fertilizer.ÂŽ3. Water levelsWhatever kind of grass youÂre using, it needs the right amount of water to develop a strong root system.An in-ground irrigation system can often water too frequently for too-short periods of time, leading to a weak, shallow root system, according to Williams.Residents, he said, should measure the amount of water their yard is getting by setting out straight-sided cans, like empty tuna cans, at different points around the yard and lettingthem collect water for a period of time.ÂIn doing that, most people would find theyÂre not getting as uniform coverage as they thought they were,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂYou might have a can in one corner of the yard that gets a few drops of water in it, but in the middle or on the other side you have a can th atÂs half-full.ÂWhat youÂre really trying to find out is how long it takes to put outa half-inch to three quar-ters of an inch of water.ÂŽIf the amount of water your lawn is receiving within several hours is within that range, it will saturate the ground six to eight inches deep and encourage a healthy root system.4. Mowing heightÂIÂve seen people solve their entire lawn problem by raising the mowing height, not cutting the grass as low,ÂŽ Williams said.Mowing height is another situation where the type of grass matters. Centipede grass does best at a height of between 1.5 and 2.5 inches Â… longer is better during the hot summer months Â… while St. Augustine grass is better off at 3 to 4 inches.5. Fertilizer ratiosThe key to fertilizer is to get your numbers right, referring to the balance between nitrogen, phos-phorus and potassium, according to Williams.ÂItÂs critical to use a fertilizer in a Florida lawn that has equal amounts nitrogen and potassium,ÂŽ he said. ÂOur lawns donÂt need the equivalent amount of phosphorus.ÂŽMany people make the mistake of using too much nitrogen in relation to the potassium. Williams says this can cause the grass to Âstarve to deathÂŽ due to a potassium deficiency. Potassium helps grass deal with stresses such as hot and cold snaps, pres-sure from pests and even routine foot traffic.ÂPotassium is critical for the long-term health of a lawn,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂIf the lawn has adequate potassium, it can overcome and survive and do much better.ÂLawns in Florida are frustrating. Even when youÂre doing everything right, you donÂt have con-trol over the weather. You donÂt have control over the pests that happen to come in that year. You donÂt want to add to the problem by being a pest yourself.ÂŽ5 tips for a healthier lawn this summerBy Aaron Jacobs @cnb_ajacobs | ajacobs@ crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW Â„ The return of warm weather means the return of something else all too common in Northwest Florida: bugs.While some insects irri-tate people, few insects are harmful to plants. Less than one-tenth of a percent of all insects in Florida are damaging to plants, according toLarry Williams, an expert in residential horticulture at the University of Flor-idaÂs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension office in Crestview.ÂThe vast majority of insects that youÂre going to encounter are either of no consequence to your lawn, landscape or garden, or they are beneficial,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂA lot of folks think that every six-legged critter needs to be killed.ÂŽSome bugs, like the chinch bug, can take over a lawn. According to Williams, they are the number one pest found in lawns seeded with St. Augustine grass, and can kill a lawn if left unchecked. Lush, green lawns attract more insects, including chinch bugs, which will choose greener grass to lay eggs.Nitrogen is critical for healthy lawns as well as insect development. However, too much nitrogen in soil can lead to more insects due to healthier offspring.Other insects, like the ladybug or lady beetle, can be beneficial by keep-ing other common garden pest populations in check.The overuse of insecti-cides to indiscriminately kill off any insects living in lawns and gardens can actually make things worse. By killing beneficial insects, the pest population can worsen each year. It can also lead to resistant populations of insects, including those harmful to plants.Fire antsThe fire ant is a common pest that can be found indoors as well as outdoors. The fire ant is a non-native species believed to have stowed away on ships from South America.The most visible sign of an ant colony is a mound of loose dirt, but a single mound is only the tip of the iceberg. The nest below can extend to five or six feet deep and be much larger than the diameter of the mound.According to Wil-liams, a single ant colony can house upwards of 300,000 ants. A queen can lay around 2,000 eggs per day for six years or more. Despite the rapid speed at which they mul-tiply, ant populations can be controlled, if you donÂt try to eradicate them altogether.ÂIf you have a fire ant mound in the back yard in the corner somewhere that you donÂt frequent and kids donÂt play, leave it alone,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂConcentrate your control efforts closer to the home, where kids play, where you frequent.ÂŽStudies have shown that eradicating ant popu-lations entirely can lead to much larger populations turning up in the same area within weeks.Williams also cautioned not to disturb the mound, no matter how tempting it is. Keeping lawn and garden pests under controlMost lawns need a half-inch to three-quarters of an inch of water within several hours to develop a strong, healthy root system.

More daylight will give her more opportunities to do her favorite pastime Â„ gardening.The Okaloosa Master Gar-dener and her husband Jim enjoy getting outdoors and tending to the plants around their Laurel Hill home.Their yard sports various items, among them an eyecatching giant azalea bush someone planted well before they bought their home; a young Japanese maple caged in a metal fence to protect it from deer who visit the coupleÂs yard and help themselves to their garden for lunch; blueberry bushes, daffodils and brightly colored verbena.Among PettyÂs favorite plants is a native yellow azalea she was able to grow.She saidbeginning garden-ers should add perennials and bulbs like amaryllis and daffodils (the varieties that grow well in North Florida). She also said they should start withones that are native to Okaloosa County, like stoke-sia plants,just to get a good variety. ÂIf theyÂre just getting into planting,ÂŽ Petty said, ÂitÂs better for them to start getting their garden and add perennials of different types, and they can get some ideas by going to plant sales and finding what kind of peren-nials to add.ÂŽÂThose are the plants that will just continue growing year after year. You donÂt have to replant them. TheyÂll be like azaleas and camelliasÂƒAnd that way, if you put a plant in like a perennial, then you donÂt have to do it again. You donÂt have to do it every year Â„ plant plant plant. ItÂs one of those that you can put it in, and if it likes where it is, it will come back every year for you,ÂŽ Petty said.For all of PettyÂs favorites, there was only one Âugly ducklingÂŽ of aplanton the Dogwood Garden Club memberÂslist.ÂWeeds...theyÂre always there...and youÂve got summer weeds and winter weeds,ÂŽ she said.

ÂI couldnÂt do much of the gardening without (it).ÂŽ [RENEE BELL | NEWS BULLETIN]
** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, March 24, 2018 A5When the mound is disturbed, the ants will instinctively move the queen and eggs to the safety of a new area, where they will build a new mound. This can lead to a never-ending cycle of chasing ant hills around a yard.One way to stop the spread of an ant colony is to use commerciallyavailable ant bait, but it takes patience. Williams said the ants will eventually take the food back to the queen, but it could take days to weeks for them to bring enough poison back to kill her.Powdered poisons can also work, but should be spread around the mound in a circle, then spiraled inward toward the center of the mound. These types of poison can work quicker than bait poisons, but also risk dis-turbing the mound, which could cause the colony to spread.ÂTheyÂre all different,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂItÂs important to read the label and understand how theyÂre used to achieve control. But you never want to disturb the mound in the process.ÂŽFungal pestsNot all garden pests in Northwest Florida are insects. Fungal diseases play a large role in the destruction of crops in this area.ÂThe lengthy period of warm weather we have, the host plant material, the moist environment, high humidity, lots of rainfall, thatÂs fungal heaven,ÂŽ Williams said. ÂThe vast majority of plant diseases are caused by some kind of fungus.ÂŽFungal infections are heavily dependent on moisture. People who think that they have to overwater due to the sandy soil can contribute to the problem, according to Williams.

Ferdon Blvd., Crestview, FL 32536.Dear editor, I recently read about the Okaloosa County School District settling a racial harassment case involving Baker School. I have to say the news has me in disbelief, because I donÂt remember the school having such racial issues when I attended there. I started attending the school in the fifth grade and graduated from there in 2002. I will admit that my memory is not the best or that I could have been totally oblivious to racially-related incidents. Although the African-American student population at Baker School is small, I remember there not being any racial hostility. In high school, I remember our star quarterback being black and dating a white cheerleader at that time. I even remember not too long ago, when the Baker community, including Baker School, showing their support for Finis Gaston. Gaston, an African-American Baker School alumnus, was featured on ABCÂs ÂExtreme Makeover: Home EditionÂ in 2010. The only incident, I can recall when the ÂN-wordÂ was openly used was during a middle school history class. On that day, a white student mispronounced "Niger" in Niger River. The teacher quickly corrected the student. So what happened? When did Baker School allegedly become so racist and why? By no means do I think the entire student body at the school is completely racist. However, more could have been done by school administrators and fellow students to keep these incidents from occurring. It sounds like this African-American family, moving to the Baker area from Virginia, found out the hard way that Baker School is unwelcome towards their race. Not only is that unfortunate, itÂs also unacceptable.Matthew Brown, HoltWhat's your view? Write a letter to the editor. Not the Baker School I rememberJudy Malinowski may testify at the trial of her alleged killer. Her murder resulted from an attack outside a gas station near Columbus, Ohio, in 2015. Police said they received multiple reports that a woman was on fire in a parking lot. Witnesses say Malinowski and her boyfriend, Michael Slager, were arguing. Slager appeared to douse Malinowski with gasoline and then lit a cigarette causing Malinowski to burst into flames. Upon arrival, police found Malinowski unable to speak, suffering from severe burns. Her body was covered in powdered chemical residue from a fire extinguisher. Malinowski did not immediately succumb to her injuries. Instead, she survived about 700 days with third and fourth degree burns over 80 percent of her body. She endured 52 surgeries and nearly two years in a hospital. She died in January 2017 leaving behind two young daughters. She left something else behind as well. She left behind her testimony, under oath and subject to crossexamination to be used at SlagerÂs trial for murder. Although Malinowski was preparing to testify by video during SlagerÂs trial for assault and arson, Slager short-circuited that plan when he entered a no-contest plea to felonious assault and aggravated arson. A judge sentenced Slager to a maximum 11 years in prison. Malinowski wasnÂt through and neither was Franklin County prosecutor Ron OÂBrien. OÂBrien sought permission to perpetuate MalinowskiÂs testimony. Her condition was not improving and her death was imminent. The Sixth Amendment to the United State Constitution requires that an individual charged with a crime have the opportunity to confront the witnesses against him. Confrontation means the opportunity to crossexamine witnesses. In our adversarial system cases are decided by juries or judges who have to make decisions about the credibility or believability of witnesses. The best way to make that evaluation is to test the memory and veracity of witnesses. In MalinowskiÂs case there was no charge of murder because she was still alive. However, when she died the state could go back and charge Slager with murder even though he already pleaded guilty to a crime involving the same conduct. The Double Jeopardy clause of the Fifth Amendment only protects defendants from twice being tired for the same offense. Although the conduct that brought about her injuries was the same conduct that broug ht about her death, the elements of each crime are different. In 2004, the United States Supreme Court decided Crawford v. Washington which has had a significant impact on the admissibility of victim statements in court proceedings when the victim is unavailable or unwilling to testify. In Crawford, the suspect was arrested and tried for assault and attempted murder of his wife. The victim refused to testify. The prosecution attempted to use statements that she made to officers after her husband was arrested. The Supreme Court held that the Confrontation Clause bars the government from introducing statements at trial against a person without calling the maker of the statement, and providing the defendant the opportunity to cross examine the that person. Here is where SlagerÂs case is different. SlagerÂs attorney had the opportunity to crossexamine Malinowski while Slager watched the deposition on close-circuit television. Slager had the opportunity to confront his accuser. An Ohio judge will soon decide if MalinowskiÂs testimony can be used at the trial of the man accused of murdering her. The stakes are high. Prosecutor OÂBrien is seeking the death penalty. Although MalinowskiÂs testimony meets the standards of the Confrontation Clause, there were no charges pending against Slager when the deposition was taken. Regardless of the outcome, MalinowskiÂs legacy of courage is clear. Her tenacity to stand-up to her killer is unprecedented. The Ohio legislature has acknowledged as much, her ordeal is the impetus for OhioÂs ÂJudyÂs Law,ÂŽ which increases penalties for those who maim and disfigure their victims. Matthew T.

The magnificent U.S. Navy vessel is on a mission of peace, serving as a symbol of steadily expanding cooperation between two nations once at war. The Vietnam War was for the U.S. literally the most divisive since our Civil War. Intense controversy led in American domestic life to physical violence as well as emotional and political turbulence during the chaotic 1960s. The destruction visited on the Vietnamese, Cambodian and Laotian people was vast. Costs of the war resonate in human terms in both Southeast Asia and the United States. Contemporary human experience can mitigate past tragedy. U.S. Navy Commander Hien Trinh is part of the crew of the Carl Vinson. His family fled Vietnam in a tiny fishing vessel after the fall of Saigon in 1975. A U.S. Navy ship rescued the family, which inspired CDR Trinh to join our military. He manages the dental facility on the ship. Current improvement in relations with Vietnam reflect concern about assertiveness of China, including military expansion. Beijing and Hanoi have serious disagreements about maritime jurisdictions. Both Presidents Bush contributed to cooperation with Vietnam. President George H.W. Bush and Secretary of State James Baker deserve great credit for supporting APEC (Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation). Australia Prime Minister Bob Hawke conceived the organization and hosted the first summit in 1989. The formation of APEC complemented and reinforced other strategic achievements of this Bush administration. Bush, Baker and associates skillfully maneuvered through the collapse of the Soviet Union and end of the Cold War. The administration of President George W. Bush supported the 2006 APEC summit held in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. That gathering provided a useful opportunity to highlight that nationÂs economic growth and the wider commitment to multilateralism. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was warmly welcomed to Vietnam, with a special parade in his honor, which included playing the U.S. national anthem. For years after HanoiÂs 1975 military victory, the newly unified nation was frustrated by inability to turn military and political revolution into economic development. Vietnam did not join the Association of Southeast Asian Nations until 1995, nearly three decades after the creation of the regional development organization. The 2006 summit was a remarkable substantive and symbolic success. There was strong commitment to multilateralism and the vital importance of working with allies and through established regional and global institutions. The summiteers not only restated support of long-term efforts toward freer trade, they also addressed military security, calling on North Korea to abandon nuclear weapons development and return to six-party talks. Representatives of generally capitalist economies, meeting in a principal city of one of the few remaining communist political systems, collectively called on the secluded leaders of another communist state to cease this very threatening military activity. The Pacific region generally lacks the established network of economic and military organizations that help define Atlantic region relationships. For this reason, the annual APEC summits are especially significant. Partners in this Asia organization have proven willing to expand their reach to include cooperation with explicitly military dimensions. This complements U.S. treaties with Australia, Japan and South Korea. For decades, the Cold War defined relationships among nations. Today, economic realities undermine ideology. Celebrate the peaceful U.S. visit to Vietnam. Â„ Arthur I. Cyr is Clausen Distinguished Professor at Carthage College and author of "After the Cold War."

ÂThe irregular bound-ary and the inconsistency of adjacent parcels being city and county has caused concern for the emergency service providers,ÂŽ Gaillard said. ÂHowever, most calls are address-related, and the service providers work diligently in maintaining up-to-date address and roadway records coupled with the latest GIS/GPS equipment.ÂŽ LINEFrom Page A1The garden holds regu-lar workdays on Tuesdays starting at 9 a.m. After the work is done, they get together for a potluckstyle picnic lunch, which usually incorporates ingredients picked right from the garden. Anyone is welcome to attend the lunch, which can be away to learn more about the garden.It can also be a place to earn community service hours, whether those hours are part of a program like Bright Futures or other civic-minded organizations, or they are mandated by the court system.Ward said the garden has had people who started working in the garden as part of their community service who stayed on when their ser-vice period was up, and that working the garden has been a positive force in their lives.ÂWhen you plant seeds, you donÂt know what the yield will be,ÂŽ Ward said. ÂItÂs that way with people, too. Working in the garden can be planting a seed in their life and it may blos-som into something lovely and productive.ÂŽWard is especially eager to get children involved in the garden. The garden recently hosted an event for kids that involved activities like rock paint-ing, and of course, working in the garden.ÂItÂs a perfect place to bring kids to teach lessons,ÂŽ Ward said. ÂItÂs a perfect thing to engage kids. ItÂs just a great enrichment activity.ÂŽMuch of the produce grown in the garden ends up at the Okaloosa County Farmers Market.

When I was a child it was referred to only as Palm Sunday. So why are there two names for it in contemporary times? ÂBack in the day,ÂŽ people took Holy Week a bit more seriously. They knew there would be worship services in the days following Palm Sunday that would help them engage in remembering the Passion of Jesus Christ. The Passion was remembering the spiritual, emotional, and physical agony endured by Jesus as he made his way to the cross and put to death. He knew what was coming and prayed fervently that if it was possible to Âlet this cup pass from me.ÂŽ The Passion was typically remembered at Maundy Thursday and Good Friday times of worship. But nowadays it is challenging to get people to return for two extra worship services during the week. And, besides, these two services are based on sadness, suffering, and death. Who wants to go to church only to walk out feeling bad, sinful, and sad? Because getting to the foot of the cross is so important, and knowing many wonÂt return to church for additional worship service, often Palm Sunday worship is divided in half: the first half, Palm Sunday; and the second half, the Passion. The truth of the matter is, each of us played a role in the reason for the crucifixion of Jesus. Our sins caused him to be mocked, whipped, spat upon, and nailed to the cross. But in our happy-golucky desire in life these days, no one wants to be reminded of that. WeÂd prefer to go from one happy feeling to the next. This is why most go from Palm Sunday to Easter and avoid the cross altogether. Yes, the gift of forgiveness of sins is definitely worth celebrating. The resurrection of Jesus from the dead is the central focus of our religion. And the depth of meaning truly increases when you realize to what lengths Jesus went in order to secure our forgiveness. Be sure to get to the foot of the cross before the great celebration of Easter. YouÂll be glad you did. The Rev. Mark Broadhead is pastor at Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Crestview.FROM THE PULPITHow the church honors the Passion of Jesus M a r k B r o a d h e a d Mark Broadhead see at an ev ent like this, Cosner said each partici-pant will be given a number or a letter and will each have ten eggs they must find on the field marked with their number or letter. They can then exchange their eggs for a goodie bag. Registration for the event will be at 7 p.m. Flashlights will not be supplied, so be sure to bring one. City of CrestviewThe city will be holding its own Easter egg hunt the next day, March 31, in the same location.

Four to six-year-olds will begin at 10:15 a.m. on the football field, while seven to twelve-year-olds will start at 11 a.m. on the same field.For more information, call 682-4715.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, March 24, 2018 A11 News Bulletin contributorCRESTVIEWÂ„ Cybersecurity teams from Crestview High School recently competed inCyberPatriot, the Air Force AssociationÂs National Youth Cyber Defense Competition.Established by AFA in 2009, the CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Edu-cation Program is designed to excite, educate and moti-vate students toward careers in cyber security and other science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines critical to the nationÂs future.The programÂs core,the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition, challenges teams of students across the United States, Canada, and other schools abroad, to find and resolve cybersecurity vulnerabilities in simulated environments. Top teams from the preliminary online rounds earn an all-expensespaid trip to Baltimore, Md. for the live National Finals Competition, where students compete for national recognition and scholarships.The CyberPatriot field has three divisions: the Open Division for public, private, and home school teams; the All Service Divi-sion for JROTC, Civil Air Patrol, and Naval Sea Cadet Corps teams; and the Middle School division.Based on the results from previous rounds, CyberPatriot X high school teams were categorized within their divisions as platinum, gold, or silver-tier teams.In all, over 5,500 teams registered to compete in CyberPatriot X. Led by coach Daniel Sligar, three teams of students from Crestview High School excelled in the qualifying rounds, demonstrating teamwork, critical thinking skills, and technical knowledge key to a success-ful career in cybersecurity. One teamÂs performance earned it a spot in the semi-final round, during which it outscored other teams to win second place overall in the gold tier of the Open Division. Breyanna Davis, Arthur Enriquez, Zach Wilson, Javan Alto, Trenten Reed, and Kelsey Jacobson represented CHS as the Crypto Canines.Coach Sligar said, ÂThe Cyberp atriot teams at Crestview High School each performed incredibly well during this yearÂs competition, demonstrating a quick understanding and application of essential cybersecurity principles within multiple operating systems. Students are learning skills and techniques that will help set them apart from competitors while seeking future educational opportunities and employment in a career field projected to increase by 28 percentover the next few years. I am extremely proud of the accomplishments of each student during this yearÂs competition.ÂŽCrestview High places second in national cyber security competitionCrestview High School team members are (from left) Javan Alto, Trenten Reed, Kelsey Jacobson, Zachary Wilson, Arthur Enriquez a nd Breyanna Davis. [SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN] Infrastructure Traffic is a well-known problem in Crestview, and solutions are slightly complicated by the fact that key road sections cross over city and county lines. Part of the proposed improvements centering on an interchange at Interstate 10 and Antioch Road is the development of Raspberry Road. While most of Raspberry Road runs through the city, a short stretch in the middle of it is on county property.The situation forces the city and county to work together on solutions to traffic problems. Whitten and County Commissioner Graham Fountain have both said that the two entities are now working together well to resolve these issues. Municipal electionsIf you ever decide to run for city council or even mayor, you might want to double-check that map to make sure you actually live in the city first.The neighborhoods north of Stillwell Boulevard are in the county, as are most of the areas off John King Road. If you live in the Lee Farms subdivision west of town, youÂll need to think about running for county commissioner instead, even though the neighboring subdivisions to the east and west are both located in the city.The same idea applies to voting. The city charter, which defines CrestviewÂs three voting precincts, states that qualified elec-tors must come from inside the voting pre-cincts of the city limits.For a local example of this, look no further than Laurel Hill where city councilman Johnny James was found in 2015 to reside outside the city limits. He was forced to step down until his property, which was adjacent to Laurel HillÂs borders, was formally annexed into the city. Getting into the cityFloridaÂs voluntary annexation laws do give people the option to become part of a city under certain conditions. First, your property must be adjacent to the current city limits. If your property shares a boundary with the city, you meet this first requirement.Second, you have to own the property to be annexed. If there are mul-tiple owners of a property, they all have to sign the petition. This becomes complicated in the case of subdivisions outside city limits, where a certain percentage of the homeowners have to be on board with the annexation plan.After that, the petition is submitted to the city council for annexation and rezoning. If your property meets all the requirements and is approved by the city council, you can officially become part of Crestview.ÂItÂs really an easy pro-cess,ÂŽ Gaillard said. LINEFrom Page A8
