The council had previ-ously voted to allocate that land for the shooting range in December 2016.Anderson brought up a number of concerns, including safety, quality of life due to the noise gener-ated by the range and the impact on the value of the surrounding properties. He felt that some of the claims made by police chief Tony Taylor and others at the council meeting were misleading.Plans for police shooting range on holdMark Anderson (left) talks to his son, Michael Anderson (center), and neighbor Daniel Rhodes about the site of the proposed shooting range near their homes.

** A2 Saturday, April 21, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin OBITUARIESGerard Richard Andersen, Jr. passed away on Friday, April 13, 2018. Gerard was born to parents, Gerard Andersen, Sr. and Beverly Andersen March 4, 1976 in Brooklyn, NY. He is survived by his wife of 16yrs., Kimberly Andersen and their twin boys, Eric and Ian Andersen of Valparaiso, FL. Gerard leaves behind a brother; Timothy Gerard of Scotland; Sisters; Heather Scapp in Staten Island, NY, and Lisa Murphy in upstate New York. Weve got a storm front coming down from the north and moving fast!!Ž Now put that quote into one of the most spot-on impressions of Arnold Schwarzenegger youve ever heard, and imagine youre in the breakfast chow hall of 6th Ranger Training Battalion after another hard morning of physical training. And everyone is laughing because ArnoldŽ is doing the weather. That was Jerry Andersen. He was the man who was known for causing laughter wherever he went. If he was on a team out in the middle of the swamp at 3 a.m., he would be the guy impersonating a Marine Corps Drill Instructor by making sounds that were probably supposed to be words but couldnt be understood„because thats how Marine Corps DIs sound. He was a soldier who would crack jokes while next to you in the mud by looking up at an F-15 streaking overhead and saying, We probably should have gone to college.Ž He was a pure New York City fellow who, when out with our friend from Boston, would converse with him in a tongue that was barely intelligible to the rest of us. He was the guy with a boat named The Money ShotŽ that nearly everyone has a story about, usually involving something in the wee hours of the morning, almost sinking, and the United States Coast Guard. He was the guy who left Staff Duty....to catch an alligator. Because all of that somehow made sense when you knew Jerry. When veterans of foreign wars pass on, the usual is to say how they served their country; how they answered the call and went into the dark places of the world when others would not, and how thankful we should be that such men lived. This is all true of Jerry, to be sure. But there is so much more. To those who knew him, speaking of what he did for his countryŽ falls far short of encapsulating the beautiful soul who kept us all laughing, fed us when hungry (even if it was just a constant stream of espresso), and carried us when tired. We knew him as the truly unique character that he was„a man quick with a joke but a broken heart over lost friends. To those of us who truly knew Jerry, he was more than a soldier or warrior, though he was certainly those, as well. He was our friend. He was our brother. And we miss him terribly. Our hearts are with his wonderful wife, Kim, and his ever-growing boys, Ian and Eric„all of whom he loved more than words can say. And it is these words that now seem horribly incapable of expressing how we all feel about Jerry Andersen. Rest in Peace, brother. Keep that ORP in the sky safe for the rest of us until we arrive. A visitation will be held on Thursday, April 19, 2018 from 6:00 P.M. … 8:00 P.M. at Emerald Coast Funeral Home, 161 Racetrack Rd., NW, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32547.

Thanks to the generous dona-tions the kids living at the CIC Neighborhood received nec-essary supplies to help them get through the summer.According to Ken Hair, CIC President & CEO, "The donation helped provide essentials that are not normally donated to our atrisk kids yet are vital to their health.

The donation will help over 100 children that will live at the CIC Neighborhood this year. [SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN] Gracie Grant of Crestview points to her tournament-winning score April 16 in Mossy Head. [SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN] I believe that the police chief or whoever presented this to the city council delib-erately left that information out,Ž Anderson said, speaking about the fact that there were houses adjacent to the proposed site. I really didnt appreciate that the gentlemen were spinning around the subject.ŽHe also claims that nobody spoke with him or his family when the range was first pro-posed. His neighbor, Danny Rhodes, said the first time he was made aware of what was going on was when he saw yellow police tape around part of the property directly across the street from his.Had somebody walked out here and talked about it, maybe it might be a little dif-ferent. I dont know,Ž Rhodes said. With it being so close to everybody, why did nobody say anything?ŽIn December of 2017, activ-ity increased at the site.CPD Commander Andrew Schneider said that was when the department began clearing the land with a bulldozer donated by a resident. Officers also volunteered their time to go out and help clear the wooded property. Schneider said that was when the nearby property owners began to express their concerns.Right now, were in a hold-ing pattern,Ž Schneider said. Were putting things on hold until we can basically determine what type of impact its going to have on some of those people in the surrounding area right there.ŽSchneider said that it was unfortunate that the range was so close to some of the residents in the area, but that it was dif-ficult finding a place to put a shooting range where it would not impact anyone.The conundrum is were trying to find a place that can be both safe and beneficial to our agency. Out of all the areas they want to do it, thats the property that is the most ideal.ŽHe also addressed specific concerns the property owners had.Theres a big misconception that were going to be out there shooting all the time, all day long, like its going to be an open range and stuff like that. Its not,Ž Schneider said. Theres only going to be less than 50 times a year that were going to be out there on the shooting range.ŽRhodes is concerned that an active shooting range oriented towards Retta Lane would block the only access to and from his house. Rhodes, who has a military background, said the military would close off roads adjacent to their shooting ranges while they were active.Theres several times where somebody goes up and down this road, and if I have to wait because theyre out there doing their stuff, then I cant get anywhere,Ž Rhodes said. This is my only egress to get in and out of here.Ž SHOOTINGFrom Page A1 See SHOOTING, A7

** A4 Saturday, April 21, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin FAITHIt has been said of late that common courtesy is not so common any more. While this may be true, there are still pockets of it around. I say this because I recently experienced two instances of it. The first occasion was last week. I went for a preliminary consultation for a minor surgical procedure I need to have. At this doctors office I experienced courtesy and professionalism of the highest level. A cheerful greeting from the person at the front desk, a brief 10-minute wait (which included time for filling out one form) before someone led me to an examination room, the calm demeanor of the one confirming my medical history, and an unrushed exam and conversation with the surgeon left me feeling well cared for and that they were taking me seriously. There was a problem with insurance codes at the check-out window when I went to pay. The same cheerful woman that welcomed me worked hard to get matters clarified, even going "up the ladder" in the billing office to get matters straightened out. They were. I then asked a question this cheerful woman couldnt answer, but that was okay because I didnt really need an answer. However, before reaching my car in the parking lot, I heard my name called. She came running out with an answer to my question. I was pleased, grateful, and downright bowled over. Talk about going the second mile! I was treated with courtesy and helpfulness. On the second occasion, my wife and I went out to dinner this past week. It was a nice restaurant. The ambience was wonderful. The food was excellent. But what truly made an impression was the demeanor of our server. She has been working there only a month, but her courteousness, politeness, timing, and attention to our needs were all spot on. This young lady was poised and professional. She chatted and laughed with us without being intrusive in the least. So wonderful was our experience that I did something I very rarely do. I spoke with the manager to give my compliments for the food and dining experience, but more importantly to give our praise about our server. (And yes, her tip reflected our pleasure.) While courtesy may not be so common any more, I would encourage you to live according to the standards of our Lord. One of his teachings to take to heart is, "Treat others the same way you want to be treated." If we all do that, common courtesy will become common once again. The Rev. Mark Broadhead is pastor at Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Crestview.FROM THE PULPITCommon courtesy can inspire gratitude M a r k B r o a d h e a d Mark Broadhead UPCOMINGESANGALO CHILDREN'S CHOIR CONCERT: The choir, from Helping Hands Foreign Missions, will perform during the 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. services April 29 at Central Baptist Church, 951 Ferdon Blvd. S, Crestview.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and State Farm are helping communities take steps toward safety with their fifth annual national Wildfire Community Preparedness Day event on May 5.Wildfire Community Pre-paredness Day is a reminder that there are many steps communities can take to be prepared for wildfire and an opportunity for residents to participate in wildfire safety activities. There is still time to prepare to take action with regard to wildfire safety and NFPA and State Farm encourage people to get involved by planning a project and participating on May 5. Print a free list of project ideas.Recent wildfire events make the need for Prepared-ness Day more important than ever before. Last Octo-ber, more than 40 people lost their lives in a rash of Northern California wild-fires that burned more than 245,000 acres. In December, wildfires near Los Angeles forced more than 230,000 people to evacuate their homes. Several other states that experienced large fires in 2017, including Idaho, Oregon, Montana, and Utah, have put the U.S. on pace to exceed the aver-age acreage burned annually over the past 10 years."Since NFPA and State Farm first partnered together on Preparedness Day, the number of projects has grown tremendously. We are pleased to provide 150 communities with $500 each to fund their wildfire risk reduction activities on May 5," said State Farm P and C underwriting analyst Vickie Hodges. "For State Farm, the largest home insurer in the U.S., it is important to us to take a leadership role in helping homeowners stay safe and better protect their property."For more information about national Wildfire Community Preparedness Day including resources, videos, and tip sheets, and to see the list of winning projects and their locations, please visit www.wildfireprepday.org.Wild re Community Preparedness Day approaches

This new movie about an old subject reminds us that when rising Democrat party star and Chappaquiddick Swim Champion of 1968, Ted Kennedy, left a mistress to drown and ran away, the U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts, a DA, and law enforcement were involved in the crime and the cover-up. If you think for one second that higher-ups at the FBI and politically ambitious US Attorneys would not lie, cheat, or conceal in order to help a political candidate, read history. We have grown an alphabet soup of powerful agencies like the FBI, DHS, NSA, DOJ, IRS, etc. They can bully us because we invest them with immense powers to arrest and to ruin lives „ with scant accountability. We allow them to operate in clubby secrecy because they tell us we have to. Why? With that lack of accountability, the FBI has a budget of $8.4 billion and convicts about 10,000 Americans a year. So, we pay $840,000 per conviction just for the FBI, which does not count the cost to prosecute and incarcerate. Why? Bureaucracies grow by making whatever they do (war: The Pentagon; drug wars: the DEA; the War on Poverty, etc.) worse, not better. You do not grow a bureaucracy by solving your agencys problems. The FBI apparently has had so much time and money on its hands the last few years that, having run out of people to arrest, they had time to dabble in politics. Some up-and-comer in the FBI has advanced a theory that they can indict Trump on a little-known provision in Article 865-C of the Affordable Sorghum Act of 1897. Rumors abound that the guy might be the next Democrat nominee for FBI Director. This brings us to the poster boy for bad cops, the sanctimonious James Comey, who is out pimping his book. Its contents have been a closely guarded secret, unlike our nations classified emails and the leaked secrets of the FBI. Spoiler alert: hes the hero in his own book. Comey craves attention. There has not been a drama queen heading the FBI since J. Edgar Hoover. And at six feet, eight inches, just imagine how tall Comey would be in heels. Comey and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe led a culture of corruption; they leaked FBI information that helped them and then lied about it. But when someone at the FBI misleads under oath, they call it being less than forthcomingŽ and misspeakingŽ and lacking candor.Ž When we or political enemies do it, they perp-walk them like General Flynn and ruin their lives. To this crowd of vengeful fired FBI officials, ethics and duty are like a streetwalker reporting a customer to the cops for rape only when the johns check bounced. Comey wrote the exoneration of Hillary before the investigation was completed into her destroying 33,000 emails which were under subpoena, bleach-bit washing her PC, and taking a hammer to her cell phones. But he ignored the Clinton Foundations Uranium One scandal, where the Clintons made money by selling 20% of our uranium reserves to Russia. Hillary said six other department heads had to sign off on the deal, but no one believes that „ the Clintons would have to split their graft booty seven ways. Where has all this weaponization of the FBI led us? Well, it just got Trumps attorney arrested for paying off a whore and ended the attorney-client privilege. Lawyers really have had a monopoly of screwing people out of money for years, until they met their match with porn star strippers. We should have learned from the FBI and the Special Counsels TMZ-like witch hunt that Deep State partisans lied about a DNC/Clinton-bought and paid for Steele dossier in order to obtain a FISA Court warrant used to spy on political opponents. But what have we found out with our $20 million instead? It turns out that Trump likes good-looking, busty blondes. And that an attorney for Stormy Daniels said, She can describe the presidents genitalia in great detail.Ž Now we dont have Michael Cohen around to give her hush money when we really need it!

Write a letter to the editor.Drama queen James Comey spins his case in Comey v. Comb-overThe announcement by Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan (R-WI) that he will not seek reelection in 2018 is important but not entirely surprising. His campaign war chest is substantial, as always, and until the April 11 public retirement announcement, he has been characteristically active. Nevertheless, public as well as private speculation was growing that he would bow out this year. The stated reason is that he wants to spend more time with his family. Observers rightly regard Ryan as a committed family man. He and wife Janna have three teenage children, a particularly challenging period in life. Yet the relentless pressures of the post of House Speaker were also clearly a factor in his decision. His grimly determined demeanor of recent months provides visible evidence of the strain involved. Ryan also faced at least the possibility of election defeat in November. Beyond personal co nsiderations, structural changes in Congress make life tough for any House Speaker. Since the turmoil of the 1968 election, which included the assassination of Democratic presidential contender Senator Robert Kennedy (D-NY), both parties have embraced state primary elections to nominate their candidates. In theory, the reform was supposed to make the whole process more fair and transparent. In 1968, RFK and rival Senator Eugene McCarthy (D-MN) slugged out a bitter battle in the few available primaries, while Vice President Hubert Humphrey sewed up the nomination through the route of party caucuses and party bosses. In practice, relatively few voters participate in primaries. They are often intense activists, left-wing Democrats and right-wing Republicans. Reconciling the rigid zealots now populating Congress steadily gets harder. Ryans predecessor Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) stunned everyone, including allies, by announcing in September 2015 he was retiring from Congress. His tour of service in the top leadership post had been particularly, painfully difficult. Republican right-wing zealots reacted with glee that Boehner would soon be gone. Their outlook is essentially narrow, shortsighted and ultimately destructive. In 2013, Republicans managed to shut down the government for 16 days as part of the effort to derail the Affordable Care Act. Democrats led by President Barack Obama used the Republican effort to political advantage. Boehners move headed off a shutdown. The practice of holding the federal budget hostage to controversial partisan party maneuvers has now gone on for some years. In 1994, Republicans took control of the U.S. House of Representatives after 40 years in minority status. New Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA) dramatically accelerated the trend of shifting that office from a relatively nonpartisan to highly partisan pulpit, a marked departure. Then and later, White House Democrats and Congressional Republicans played an escalating game of budgetary chicken. The federal government did shut down briefly. In the political and public media maneuvering, President Bill Clinton „ a brilliant political operator „ was able to put the onus squarely on the Gingrich Republicans. Arthur I.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, April 21, 2018 A7It was around that time Lewis became aware of a new show on The Discovery Channel called Naked and Afraid. The show takes two people, one male and one female, drops them into a harsh environment without clothing and chal-lenges them to survive for 21 days. It was the perfect opportunity.As soon as I saw it, I was like, Gosh, they have been watching my dreams. That is the challenge Ive been wanting to do for 30-plus years.ŽLewis began training for the show shortly after that. He hiked a total of more than 500 miles barefoot through gravel, dirt and hot asphalt to prepare his feet for what they would endure. He practiced start-ing friction fires, more than 600 by his count, using hand drills and bow drills.I was just bound and determined I was going to go.ŽIn 2017, when Hurricane Hermine was barreling toward Tallahassee and his office shut down, he jumped at the opportunity to put his survival skills into practice.I immediately stripped down to my shorts, ran into the woods, and I acted as if I was on the show. I spent the next four days building a shelter and looking for food. I own 20 acres in a rural area, so a lot of the time I literally did strip down and reenact the show.I can tell you what, when youre laying in a shelter and the wind is blowing at 80 miles an hour and trees are crashing down around you, and youre cold and laying in the mud, wow that was challenging.ŽLocal rootsLewis came to Crestview in 1978 when his father was stationed at Eglin Air Force Base. He spent his middle and high school years here and received a scholarship from the Crestview News Bulletin in 1985.Coming up from a farming community and a farming family, money to go to college was not read-ily available. So when the scholarship was awarded to me, it was just that little help, that little spark to get me started on a college career.ŽLewis used the scholarship to spend a year at Okaloosa-Walton Community College, now Northwest Florida State College, before moving to Alabama to study architec-ture at Auburn University. It was not an easy move to make.I didnt have money when I went up there, did not have a place to live. I just drove the truck over to a spot in the woods and set up camp. For the first couple weeks of school, I was actually living out of the woods.ŽIt was during those couple of weeks that Lewis learned some of the sur-vivalist skills that he would put to use years later when training for Naked and Afraid.In the evenings, I was running down to the creek, no fishing pole, just cut a spear and chased fish down and speared them. Growing up on a farm and learning to make things work turned out to be valuable my first few weeks at Auburn.Ž Eventually, he was taken in by a fraternity that found out about his unusual living arrangements. He eventu-ally found work and his own place and graduated in 1991 with degrees in architecture and building sciences. He took a job with an archi-tectural firm in Tallahassee where he was worked ever since.Confronting nature au naturaleLewis made the cut for Naked and Afraid, and will appear in a 2-hour episode airing at 9 p.m. Sunday on The Discovery Channel.For his episode, Lewis was dropped into the rain-forests of Nicaragua, a Central American country dotted with lakes and volcanoes. Its also home to a variety of potentially dan-gerous wildlife.There was more than one occasion where preda-tors were so close you could reach out and touch them. Thats when reality hits home.Ž Participants on the show have the option to tapŽ if they can no longer handle the stresses of the environment and wish to end the challenge prematurely.When things are so close that you can reach out and touch them, it really gets to your psyche. Emotionally, that alone can make you tap. Theres nothing you can do.ŽBut fear is only half of the shows premise. Being naked presents its own set of challenges.Being stripped of clothes, its amazing how much it exposes you. And I dont mean just your skin. It exposes who you are as a person. It removes the clothes. It removes the status. It removes the money. Youre going into nature and nature doesnt care what your background is. Its going to treat you exactly the same, and if youre not prepared, its going to beat you up.ŽThen theres the initial awkwardness of being naked in front of a complete stranger, not to mention the camera crew and viewers all over the world.You gotta get over it and move on,Ž Lewis said. Not to say that Im comfortable and used to being naked. Im not. Ive never been naked outside the house.ŽA new perspectiveFor people accustomed to modern amenities, it may be hard to imagine spending three weeks in a hostile environment with-out them, let alone basic needs like shelter and a reliable source of food. Its easy to see how that kind of experience can change a persons perspective.Going through a chal-lenge like that changes your view on certain things, and one of them may be just how you look at your environment, your surroundings. It also affects how you may look at people.ŽHe said it particularly affects the way he now views people here at home who dont have those basic needs.Theres true empathy there. You can feel their suffering because youve experienced it, at least the discomfort of being where youre at.Ž LEWISFrom Page A1 But Schneider said that was not necessary because of the 48-foot wide by 24-foot tall berms that will surround the range.Were talking about 48 feet of dirt. There is not a caliber (gun) thats currently in the arsenal of the United States government thats capa-ble of penetrating that.ŽSchneider also noted that there would be large red flags put up when the range was in use to alert residents, as well as fencing around the entire property to prevent anyone from wandering into the range.Rhodes said he under-stood the need for the shooting range, but did not want it so close to his front door.Its right on our doorstep. Its not far enough away,Ž Rhodes said. We are not against them training. We understand that they need training.We dont want to be looked at badly by the police force. You can probably poll them and ask them if it was in front of their house would they like it. I bet theyd say no.ŽAfter the April 9 coun-cil meeting, council president J.B. Whitten arranged a meeting with Mayor David Cadle, Chief Taylor, Andrew Schneider and Wayne Steele, the citys public services director. The group discussed alternative plans for the shooting range, including Andersons suggestion that they use a nearby spray field at the citys wastewater treatment facility.Anderson said he contacted the Florida Department of Environmental Protection about the idea and he was told there was noth-ing restricting the city from building a shooting range in that location.Its a viable option for them,Ž Anderson said, citing the larger space that is further from residential areas. SHOOTINGFrom Page A3They teach you if you have heart failure, dont eat certain things, dont do certain things. A lot of the nursing is educational.Ž Another benefit GCHH offers is an on-site medical social worker. Kendall McDonald helps link patients with programs and resources the may not even know they qualify for.A lot of people dont think theyre eligible for anything, even home health,Ž McDonald said.She assists patients with safety issues, finan-cial resources, insurance concerns and other areas that may be difficult to navigate, all while trying to keep the cost to the patient as low as possible.With home health, you really want the patient as independent as possible. Thats the goal, to make them safe in their homes so they dont have to go to a facility somewhere,Ž Churchill said. Thats what were here for is just to help anybody that we can.Ž SERVICEFrom Page A1
