As part of his Open Gaetz Day, Congressman Matt Gaetz took part as well.The meeting cameon the heels of the city and county unanimously passing a joint resolution to prioritize a bypass in the southwest part of Crest-view and adjoining Raspberry Road Connector project as the top priority for Triumph funding for the county.Triumph Gulf Coast is the organization tasked with over-seeing funds received from BP in the Deepwater Horizon oil spill settlement. Okaloosa is among the eight Northwest Florida counties eligible to receive funds from the settlement.City and county officials hailed the agreement to tackle the traffic problem on 85 as a step in the right direction.ÂNever before in 56 years here, I can verify we have never had the unity and workability and teamwork that weÂve had today,ÂŽ Crestview City Coun-cilman Joe Blocker said.County Commissioner Nathan Boyles agreed, saying the joint resolution is neces-sary to secure funding from Triumph as well as state and federal funding. ÂWeÂre seeing tremendous momentum being gained in a way that weÂve not seen before,ÂŽ Boyles said. ÂItÂs from all the items that have been mentioned, most par-ticularly Triumph, and I think that requires us to set aside whatever minimal differences we may have had and all be unified as a team, and thatÂs clearly happening.ÂŽIt is important, according to Boyles, to show that the city and county can success-fully complete the first phase of the traffic improvements Â„ widening PJ Adams Parkway and building an Interstate 10 interchange at Antioch Road Â„in making the case to secure funding for larger projects including a completed bypass around the city.Gaetz, local o cials focus on Crestview tra cNorthbound trafÂ“ c on State Road 85 in Crestview backs up on a weekday evening.

The workshop focused on a plan to build a complete bypass around the city of Crestview.The first steps of that bypass are already underway southwest of the city. The widening of PJ Adams Parkway is the initial phase of a southwestern section of the bypass that will eventually feature an interchange with Interstate 10 and link up with Highway 90 west of the city.Jason Autrey, director of public works for the county, presented the full bypass plans to the panel, including a proposed northwest leg and an eastern bypass completing a circle around the city.

** A4 Saturday, May 5, 2018 | Crestview News BulletinDon Gaetz, who serves as president of the Triumph Gulf Coast board, credited local officials with committing money to transportation projects up front before seeking additional funding.ÂI am amazed and impressed that weÂve got a lot of skin in the game around the table, and I think that will impress my colleagues on the Tri-umph Gulf Coast board,ÂŽ Gaetz said.State representatives Mel Ponder and Jayer Williamson put their weight behind the plan as well, both in terms of securing state funding and Triumph funds.ÂYou have every piece of the puzzle that are lining up on the same page, at the same time, for the same purpose,ÂŽ Ponder said. ÂThat just doesnÂt happen that often.ÂŽCommissioner Nathan Boyles, who represents the western half of Crest-view, talked about the history and magnitude of the traffic problem and the opportunity to fix it.ÂWeÂre seeing the confluence of opportunities now to fix what has become a critical challenge for the city of Crestview and for Okaloosa County, and really for Northwest Florida,ÂŽ Boyles said. Paying for the projectThe southwest portion of the bypass is estimated to cost nearly $200 mil-lion to complete. The state Department of Transportation is expected to contribute nearly half of that, with the bulk of those funds going towards construction of the I-10 interchange.The city and county would contribute $38 million, the majority of which would go toward purchasing right of way for a new road linking the interchange to Highway 90. They are also seeking an additional $64 million in Triumph funds, which would go primarily toward that new construction.Boyles said the county is ready to move forward with the Raspberry Road project, which would con-nect State Road 85 with the southwest bypass, even without full funding for the project.ÂRather than wait until we have every dollar in our hands, the decision has been made to build that project incrementally using every available resource that is at our disposal,ÂŽ Boyles said. ÂWe will see the first mile of that con-struction before the end of this year.ÂŽCounty officials are pro-posing a half-cent sales tax increase to help fund the transportation projects. They argue that a sales tax increase would split the burden among residents and visitors to the area.ÂI think itÂs the fairest way to tax. It doesnÂt make us have to keep paying more on our property taxes to pay the same amount,ÂŽ Commissioner Graham Fountain said. ÂThat commitment is here that weÂre going to support that, weÂre going to fight for it and weÂre going to hope that the public will understand that this is not the only avenue to raise income, but it is the safest and fairest way to raise income.ÂŽCounty Administrator John Hofstad echoed Foun-tain, saying the county has few options to raise funds.ÂWe take tremendous pride in this county in keeping our tax burden low for our citizens,ÂŽ Hofstad said. ÂWe donÂt have other sources of rev-enue that come into this county Âƒ so we have to make this budget work.ÂŽ Next StepsThe main priority going forward is for the city and county to complete a joint application for Triumph funding. If approved, it would clear a significant hurdle on the way to fully funding the transporta-tion projects.Communicating plans to the public and inform-ing residents on the need for the sales tax increase is another key step to moving the plan forward.Christopher Saul, public information officer for the county commission, talked about the importance of keeping any progress on the plan in the public eye.ÂWe donÂt want to have something at the outset like this and have all the cam-eras here and then not hear about it again for several months,ÂŽ Saul said. ÂThe more we get it in front of people, the more theyÂre going to know about it, the more educated they are.ÂŽ PLANSFrom Page A1This map shows one proposed route for a bypass around the city of Crestview. The Northwest (orange) and Eastern (purple) sections are still in the early planning phases. [SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN] ÂWe had a great time there,ÂŽ Gaetz said. ÂPeople were very expres-sive, and thatÂs a good thing. That can happen on Open Gaetz day.ÂŽThe first-term congressman fielded questions from all sides of the political spectrum, on a number of issues ranging from the economy to immigration to the current polarized political climate.A representative from the Democratic WomenÂs Club of North Okaloosa started off by asking how Congress plans to fund infrastructure projects, education and Medicare in light of recent tax cuts and increased military spending. Gaetz said he was more concerned about spending in other areas of the budget.ÂI believe that the biggest driver of our debt is our spending problem,ÂŽ Gaetz said. ÂI believe that the biggest problem we have in spending is that we give people entitlements that can work and choose not to, things like unemployment, things like TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), things like food stamps.ÂŽA member of the Republican WomenÂs Club asked about the political climate and said Gaetz had a repu-tation for reaching across the aisle.ÂOne of my biggest concerns is the polarization that we have in this country between liberals and conservatives,ÂŽ she said.Gaetz, who served six years in the Florida House of Representatives, talked about finding common ground with people with whom he disagreed politically.ÂThis is my biggest critique of Washington: They keep us away from each other,ÂŽ Gaetz said. ÂWhat we would always do in Florida is we would start on the issues we agreed on.ÂŽPhil Bowman, a North Okaloosa businessman, said he could not find enough workers with the basic skills needed for construction jobs.ÂWhoÂs going to build this stuff?ÂŽ Bowman asked, saying that chil-dren in area schools were being pushed toward either college or the military.Gaetz replied that more technical schools were needed to prepare students for jobs that were either being out-sourced or being filled by non-citizens.The one topic that received broad support among the crowd was term limits. Gaetz said he favored term limits, but was not convinced that Congress would take action on the issue.ÂMy worry is that Con-gress will never do that to themselves,ÂŽ Gaetz said. ÂAfter being around those folks, I just donÂt think theyÂre going to do it to themselves.ÂŽ GAETZFrom Page A1Congressman Matt Gaetz talks to sixth-graders from Shoal River Middle School about government and civics.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, May 5, 2018 A5 FAITHLori Deschene wrote the following: ÂPractice the pause. Pause before judging. Pause before assuming. Pause before accusing. Pause whenever youÂre about to react harshly and youÂll avoid doing and saying things youÂll regret later.ÂŽ If we would pause long enough to think about the consequences of judging another person unjustly, a great deal of heartache and conflict can be avoided. Mistakes are sometimes made. It happens. But that does not mean a person is an imbecile. If we would pause long enough before assuming the worst, or thinking we know what is happening, we could avoid a great deal of misinterpretations. I once saw a person driving a car, weaving unsafely in the lane. I assumed the person was drunk. When the person finally pulled over, I did also. It turned out the person was having a medical emergency. Emergency responders were called and the person was taken to the hospital. If we would pause long enough before accusing another of something, we could avoid embarrassing ourselves and causing enmity with another. Knowing only a portion of the facts of a situation and then jumping to conclusions can do irreparable harm to your or anotherÂs reputation. Before pointing the finger, make sure you have all the facts and weigh them carefully. The Letter of James (3:3-12, New Living Translation)warns us, ÂWe can make a large horse go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth. And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot chooses to go, even though the winds are strong. ÂIn the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. And the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself. ÂPeople can tame all kinds of animals, birds, reptiles, and fish, but no one can tame the tongue. It is restless and evil, full of deadly poison. Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God. And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. ÂSurely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right! Does a spring of water bubble out with both fresh water and bitter water? Does a fig tree produce olives, or a grapevine produce figs? No, and you canÂt draw fresh water from a salty spring.ÂŽ In this day and age when there is so much division among people, Âpractice the pause.ÂŽ It will go a long way to taming the tongue and building goodwill.

** A6 Saturday, May 5, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin OPINION ÂThe courage to be patient,ÂŽ is how President Dwight D. Eisenhower, in 1954, rejected demands for military action against China. IkeÂs wisdom then provides good guidance now. The most important summit involving the Korean Peninsula has just taken place, between freely elected President Moon Jae-in of South Korea and Kim Jong Un, hereditary leader of the totalitarian dictatorship in North Korea. President Moon was sworn in a year ago following a special presidential election. He received approximately 41 percent of the vote, putting him 17 percent ahead of the nearest rival candidate, Hong Jun-pyo of the conservative Liberty Korea Party. President Moon took office in a time of tension and uncertainty on both sides of the 38th Parallel, where the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) divides Korea. South Korea had just experienced impeachment and removal from office of President Park Geun-hye, the daughter of General Park Chung-hee. He emerged from a military coup in the early 1960s to rule South Korea until his 1979 assassination. The current chief executive brings diverse useful experience to the top post. His father was a refugee from North Korea. During MoonÂs youth, public activism against the dictatorship of Park Chung-hee led to arrest and imprisonment. Reflecting that experience, he pursued a career as a human rights lawyer. Moon also served in the Republic of Korea army special forces. He saw combat in the DMZ and Moon was chief of staff to earlier President Roh Moo-hyun. He finished a close second to Park Geun-hye in the 2012 presidential election. North Korea greeted the inauguration of a new president in South Korea by launching yet another long-range missile test. The George W. Bush administration gave emphasis to Six Power diplomacy involving the two Koreas, China, Japan, and Russia plus the U.S., after earlier stressing a unilateral stance in foreign policy. This dramatic reversal provided strong testimony for the value of trying collectively to reach nuclear accord with the isolated communist state. The Obama administration continued the multilateral emphasis. Economic leverage is important. In 2007, Washington declared Banco Delta Asia (BDA) in Macau a renegade conduit for PyongyangÂs black market. Macau government authorities froze $25 million in North Korean funds. Washington offered to release the funds to in return for nuclear restraint. A transfer of funds eventually occurred. Current comprehensive UN sanction exert strong pressure on impoverished North Korea. History encourages persistence, despite setbacks. The Korean War took an estimated 1 million lives, and transformed the Cold War into a global conflict. President Harry Truman and associates deserve great credit for leading the defense of South Korea after invasion by the North. His successor, President Eisenhower secured an armistice ending the war after massive bombing of the North, plus other moves.Korea Summit is encouraging, but caution is essentialANOTHER VIEW Matt Â“ ghts to win Dear editor, ÂFight Washington and restore America.ÂŽThis is the phrase that Congressman Matt Gaetz ran on when he threw his hat into the ring to replace the outgoing Jeff Miller. When I first heard it I thought to myself how could these two coexist? Fighting our nationÂs capital to restore the nation? This became clear as I watched him win the primary, the general, and then take the fight to Washington to advocate the values of Northwest Florida, all the while punching above his weight. Coexistence is not the goal; winning is. When Matt fights to protect the rights of the unborn, that ideal cannot coexist with the views of those who think the fetus is nothing more than a mass of cells. Matt fights to win.When Matt fights to reschedule cannabis so that research can be conducted leading to life-changing treatments for those who suffer with crippling seizures or PTSD, Matt fights to win. When bureaucracy cripples business, Matt fights to win. When the left attacks our president with made up charges of Russian collusion, Matt fights to win. While other lawmakers are seeking to coexist and looking for ways to compromise and keep their seats as centrist legislators who want to stay in Washington for life, Matt is fighting to win.He is fighting to win for Northwest Florida. A vote for Matt is a vote for the values of Northwest Florida, not just to coexist with other values, but a vote to win.IÂm not voting to coexist. IÂm voting to win.Drew PalmerLETTER TO THE EDITORHave you ever seen anything funnier than the White House CorrespondentsÂ Dinner? Not the comedy; Michelle Wolf was funny, but she really wasnÂt even as funny as President Barack Obama or Geor ge W. Bush had been working the crowd themselves in a time before the current president was too petty and proud to accept a little roasting. TodayÂs Commander and Chief leaves town and leaves his aides to take the usually good-natured abuse on his behalf. IÂm sure that will be a big part of the next Âprofiles in courageÂŽ novel. There has been a great deal of hand wringing and pearl clutching over Michelle WolfÂs acerbic comedy routine that took down Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway. Since Wolf made her eye shadow and HandmaidÂs Tale jokes, we have seen multimillionaires complaining about being attacked by ÂelitesÂŽ and the conservative faux outrage machine has been in overdrive. One writer even complained about the line of jokes that were told in front of political professionals and former Major League Baseball players and coaches. Really? I know the rating system is usually age related to protect young eyes and ears from inappropriate material. I had no idea that baseball professionals were considered Âpolite company.ÂŽ I can hear it now, ÂHey, watch your language, guys! There are retired baseball players present.ÂŽ All of the worry is for Sanders who was the focus of several less than kind jokes. Many have said she was brave to endure the humorous abuse. Seriously? I hate it when people are told not to say mean things about professional women. That is so demeaning. Be mean to the men, but be nice to the delicate women. Saying they need protection is peak sexism. Sanders and Conway arenÂt Âwives and mothersÂŽ who need to be protected by Ward Cleaver when Eddie Haskell acts up. These are women who have reached incredibly prestigious and powerful positions in the most prominent country in the world. I donÂt think the mean lady and her unkind jokes damaged their tender ears. Sanders is a woman who told reporters to calm down and realize the president was just telling a joke when they asked about Donald Trump making fun of Rex TillersonÂs low IQ. When asked about TrumpÂs alleged comments about Tillerson, Sanders smirked and said, ÂHe made a joke, maybe you guys should get a sense of humor and try it sometime.ÂŽ Tillerson was soon fired upon returning from Ethiopia and this same administration joked with reporters that the Secretary of State had been fired while in the bathroom suffering from digestive distress. At least no one made fun of his eye shadow. This is the daughter of a former Governor of Arkansas who fancies himself a Twitter comedian. IÂm sure sheÂs heard a tawdry tale or two around the dinner table. Gov. Huckabee tweeted the day before the White House CorrespondentsÂ Dinner, ÂIf you lack a sense of humor, get offended by slights you create or just canÂt bring yourself to tolerate those you disagree with, the (sic) DO NOT watch my show 2nite(sic)! You will be triggered and will need a pony, popsicle and Playdough to cope!ÂŽ So obviously, Huckabee was fine with the jokes at his daughterÂs expense, right? Nope. I guess she needed a pony and a popsicle because he was tweeting this 24 hours after his Âmy showÂŽ tweet. ÂThe WHCD is supposed to celebrate the 1st Amendment. Instead, the celebrated bullying, vulgarity and hate. They got all dressed up so they would look nicer when they had a hired gun savagely attack their guests. Do they really wonder why America has no respect for them? Sad!ÂŽ Someone sounds triggered. Maybe his Playdough was dried up. ItÂs nice to see Gov. Huckabee has gone full Trumpian and forgotten all about being a Southern Baptist pastor. I donÂt have enough room in a column to explore the ÂwhataboutsÂŽ with ad hominem attacks on Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama from those on the right side of the comedic aisle. Have you ever heard bawdy comments about Nancy Pelosi? Give me a break. IÂm not defending WolfÂs comedy. Jokes about looks are lazy and tasteless. However, I am not letting this administration and their lackeys be the ones to cry foul. Trump eats his Big Macs in the Oval Office because he insulted and bullied other candidates out of the GOP Presidential Primary. This is the man who claimed Ted CruzÂs father killed President John F. Kennedy, called CruzÂs wife (and fellow candidate Carly Fiorina) ugly and threatened to blast CruzÂs wifeÂs secrets to the world. LetÂs not spend our time dabbing his crocodile tears over eye shadow jokes at a roast.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, May 5, 2018 A7Congressman Matt Gaetz talks with local leaders about making the trafÂ“ c issue on State Road 85 in Crestview the number one priority for Triumph funding. From left, Laurel Hill Council Chairman Scott Moneypenny, Crestview Mayor David Cadle, Gaetz, Okaloosa County Commission Chairman Graham Fountain, Crestview Council President JB Whitten. [AARON JACOBS|NEWS BULLETIN] Congressman Gaetz said the issue is finally being seen as something that affects the entire county, not just the city of Crestview.ÂI am getting feedback all over the county that people do not view this as a north county versus south county issue,ÂŽ Gaetz said. ÂIn the past, frankly, weÂve allowed that sense of tribalism to stop us from working together.ÂŽGaetz talked about the impact to the tour-ist industry in Destin and Fort Walton Beach, which employs a large number of Crestview residents who have to commute along 85 every day. The road is also the major hurricane evacuation route for the south end of the county.He also cited concerns at Eglin Air Force Base and Duke Field over military readiness. He stated that at times in the past, Eglin has been opposed to "any infrastructure coming out of 85."ÂElements of the mission at Duke require rapid mobility and rapid deployment, and so weÂve got to make sure we can always meet those capabilities of the military,ÂŽ Gaetz said. ÂWeÂve found them to be a very willing partner in this.ÂŽCrestview City Councilman Doug Faircloth asked why FEMA and the Department of Defense canÂt contribute money to the project, given con-cerns about hurricane evacuation routes and military readiness.Gaetz said neither department has the funds for county and municipal infrastructure, and they are currently facing short-falls in higher priority areas of their respective budgets.The public safety issue was also a topic of discussion. County Administrator John Hofstad cited statistics showing that traffic accidents along 85 from State Road 123 and Airport Road in northern Crestview have increased from 364 in 2015 to 512 in 2017.ÂWe are in a crisis, a crisis where people sit coming to Crestview like theyÂre on the Washing-ton-Baltimore beltway,ÂŽ County Commissioner Carolyn Ketchel said. ÂEverybody is saying finally, enough is enough.ÂItÂs the number one issue here, and I think if we all donÂt work together, weÂre all going to be out together.ÂŽ TRAFFICFrom Page A1
