The need for the workshop arose after Scott Moneypenny informed the council that a larger workshop on transpor-tation is being planned that would involve officials from Crestview, Laurel Hill, Oka-loosa County and FDOT, as well as State Senator George Gainer.Theyre requesting a reso-lution from our city that we will align with them in Tri-umph funding and propose a change to try to get anywhere from $25 million to $35 mil-lion to complete the western bypass (around Crestview),Ž Moneypenny said.Triumph is a non-profit that oversees funds for economic damages caused by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.Moneypenny expressed concern for how a bypass around Crestview would affect traffic traveling north through Laurel Hill.Were going to be the next bottleneck,Ž he said. I think we really need to look at getting the traffic around Laurel Hill, because its got to go somewhere. We may be looking at five years or more down the road, but this is something we need to take action on now.ŽMoneypenny suggested pushing for a bypass around Laurel Hill, citing a potential increase in traffic through the middle of town. Council members Johnny James and Debra Adams disagreed that there was a need for a bypass.City attorney Jeff Burns suggested the city hold their own workshop prior to the transportation workshop in order to craft a unified mes-sage to take into the meeting.I understand both sides. We want people to come here, but we dont want to overwhelm our community,Ž Moneypenny said. The Laurel Hill Council set the workshop for 6 p.m. April 24 at the Laurel Hill city office and recieved approval by a unanimous vote.Laurel Hill council divided on Highway 85 bypassScott Moneypenny Laurel Hill City Of“ ce.

This years campaign aims to bring awareness to higher smoking rates in certain pop-ulations, such as low-income individuals, the LGBT com-munity, people with mental health issues and racial and ethnic minorities.Carissa Hickok is the Okaloosa County Health Departments program man-ager for school health and tobacco. Weve made great strides in Florida, just amazing things that have happened so far since Tobacco Free Flor-ida has started,Ž Hickok said. But there are still opportu-nities for improvement, and weve still got a ways to go since were not at our goals yet.ŽHickok said pregnant women in Okaloosa County smoke twice as much as the average pregnant woman in Florida. In Okaloosa County, that rate is 11.7 percent versus 5.7 percent for the state.Okaloosa County as a whole has a 17.35 percent smoking rate, nearly two percentage points higher than the overall rate for the state.The health department is working with the state to get a better view of the land-scape of tobacco advertising and sales across the county. Hickok said theyve found that retail stores in lowincome areas tend to have far more tobacco advertising.Anti-smoking campaign raises awareness of smoking ratesTobacco Free Florida Week is working to highlight disaprities in health equity among certain populations like low-income individuals and racial and ethnic minorities.

It was assumed someone had stolen the body. Sadness deepened to greater grief because now they had no way to give Jesus a proper burial. But thenƒ surprise! Jesus, very much alive, appeared to Mary. He came back to life just as he said he would. She ran and told the others Jesus was alive. Skepticism was rampant, Im sure. What she saw and heardŽ was more than likely dismissed as the wishful delusions of a grief-stricken woman. Later that evening, the disciples were in the upper room with the windows and doors locked. Suddenly Jesus stood among them. Can you imagine the utter shock that ran through them? Their friend, teacher, and Lord had been killed. And now he stood before them very much alive … just as Mary had said. They saw for themselves that Jesus had come back to life, just as he said he would. And they were ecstatic! They then knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jesus was who he said he was … the Son of God, the Messiah. What joy! They saw and believed. Thomas had not been there when Jesus appeared, and did not believe the others when they told him Jesus appeared to them. He said, Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe.Ž How like so many people today. Proof is demanded. They want to see with their own eyes because Seeing is believing.Ž No, we cannot always trust what we see. Computer programs allow modifications of photos to the point where photos are rarely allowed as evidence in courts of law. There are those who are very good at slightof-hand manipulations causing us to see something that isnt there. Misinformation on social media is rampant. Thomas the doubter wanted proof. In this instance, Jesus gave it to him. When Jesus appeared to his disciples again, he said to Thomas, Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe.Ž Thomas answered him, My Lord and my God!Ž Jesus said to him, Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.Ž And there it is. Today there is no physical proof of our Lords resurrection from the dead. We have to take the word of those who were there that did have the proof. We have to take the word of our Lord. We need to trust the stirring of Gods Holy Spirit within us. Jesus Christ rose from the dead. He ascended into heaven to rule the world. He is still the friend of sinners. Blessed are we who have not seen and yet have come to believe! The Rev. Mark Broadhead is pastor at Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Crestview.FROM THE PULPITBelieve in the things not seen M a r k B r o a d h e a d Mark Broadhead

Ferdon Blvd., Crestview, FL 32536.Its funny how five decades have whitewashed the memory of the man who was gunned down outside his hotel room in Memphis, Tennessee, 50 years ago this week. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was in Memphis to rally for sanitation workers who were on strike. Somehow in 2018, people see Malcolm X as a troublemaker and King as a halo-wearing bridge builder who led the civil rights movement with a sweet smile stretched across his face. King was fighting on the side of the angels, but he was anything but a meek and mild character that people tend to remembered today. Yes, King had a dream and he had been to the mountaintop. His speeches that have become the headlines of the movement he led have an overwhelmingly positive message of hope. But dont think for a moment that the man who has a beautiful monument erected in his honor in Washington D.C. was always as widely beloved. Just five years before his assassination, King was jailed in Birmingham, Alabama, for violating the citys rules on mass demonstrations. Of course, the people rallied to his rescue, right? He was the good guy, after all. Not exactly. Eight Birmingham pastors bought an ad in the Birmingham News attacking King for the timing of his protests. It just wasnt a good time for a rally like this. He was called an outside agitator. They didnt like Kings methods. Of course King realized that a protest that was well-received by those against whom you are protesting isnt a protest at all. King wrote a letter from his cell in Birmingham expressing his thoughts on the attacks from his fellow pastors. It said in part, We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed,Ž King wrote. Frankly, I have yet to engage in a direct action campaign that was well timed in the view of those who have not suffered unduly from the disease of segregation. For years now I have heard the word Wait! It rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity.Ž The best way to kill any movement is to agree with it but delay acting on it. Another crisis will come and the headlines will be washed away by water flowing under the bridge. That is why people always caution those who support gun control that you shouldnt politicize a mass shooting to push for common sense regulations that might prevent a future mass murder. Those pushing that message always appear to agree that somethingŽ should be done sometime,Ž but that time is never now. King dealt with people who tried to kill his movement with kindness as well. They claimed to be on his side but they just thought he should bide his time and not rush change. King was not willing to wait for a time when those in power would act on their own. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negros great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizens Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to orderŽ than to justice,Ž King wrote. Who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another mans freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a more convenient season.Ž It was true 50 years ago, and it is true today. If you wait for those in power to act on their own time tomorrow will never come. King knew that you had to speak truth to power. It landed him in jail. It put him in the jaws of attack dogs and at the end of a firehose. It finally cost him his life. But his actions moved the civil rights movement further than waiting for the right time ever could have.

Some of you might say it a bit differently. When I was a pastor I would get so sick and tired of the same old people whining and complaining about the same old stuff that never amounted to anything. Yet, they seemed to relish in having something to complain about. Most of us have been there and done that. We have whined or just got tired of hearing others whine. Chances are you are there right now. Youve done all you can to help somebody and you cant do it anymore. Youve hung onto something that you wished you had walked out of a long time ago. Youve showed up at a job that youve hated for years. Youve carried on in different tasks that you are tired of doing because it all seems so futile. Nobody would probably blame you much if you made a change. For good or bad the person you always have to deal with is you. You have to decide if you can live with your decision to give up. Fifteen years ago I didnt know how I was going to eat let alone pay the mortgage. I was trying to start a practical way for ministers around the planet to study the Bible and earn a ministry degree at home. After two years it was pretty dead and going zero. I was so jobless that I was interviewing with a nursing home for a job that paid really nothing. The interviewer wanted to know what my current job was and I said, President of Newburgh Theological Seminary, Newburgh, Indiana.Ž She said, That sounds like a better job.Ž I replied I would like it more if it at least paid a little something.Ž I was ready to quit but one tiny small success eventually led to another and that was fifteen years and at least 6000 students ago. Im glad I didnt quit but nobody would have blamed me if I had. Im certainly by no means saying life is roses. Not everything turns out pie and cream in life. Ive had plenty of failures. I have failures going on right now. I suppose the only way I can escape failing at stuff is to stop trying to do anything. Ive thought about giving up this column. About the time I start having this thought Ill get email from different people telling me that something I wrote was meaningful to them. An editor will write me and thank me or somebody will hate something I wrote and write something ugly. At least then I know Im being read. So, Im going to stay with it for awhile. Who knows what will happen? Today, maybe the whole point of all of this is to help you stay with it a little longer or maybe just one more day. When you look back you never feel that great about anything if you just quit. Glenn Mollette is an American syndicated columnist and author. Whats your view?
