Whitten on Wednesday continued his series of town hall meetings to inform city residents about the upcoming referendum on changes to Crestviews city charter.The May 24 meeting at Hub City Smokehouse was the second of three planned events. The first took place April 26 at Casbah Coffee, and a third event is planned for June. Whitten said his goal is to hold the meetings at different times during the day to accommodate everyone who would like to attend.Whitten has been an outspo-ken proponent of amending the city charter to allow for a city manager form of government. If the referendum is successful, the city council would be able to appoint a city manager, and all department heads would report to that person. Under the current form of government, some departments report to the mayor, while others report to the council.Out of 412 cities in Florida, only 85 have our form of government,Ž Whitten said. Of those 85, 83 of them have fewer than 1,700 people. Here we are in Crestview. Were heading toward 25,000 people and were still operating the same way that smaller cities are.Ž The current charter has been in place since 1965 and has been amended various times over the years. A previous attempt to change the form of government in 2012 failed. Whitten believes that was largely due to lack of voter education on the subject.Its incumbent upon us in the city to reach out and educate people,Ž Whitten said. Thats why were having these town hall meetings.ŽWhitten said the benefit of having a city manager is that the position would be filled by a professional who understands budgets, finances and management. There are no requirements that city council members have those qualifications.Im not even trained in the budget process,Ž Whitten said. We educate ourselves, but its a learning curve. A city manager is going to be someone thats already gone to school having learned about every department in the city. Theyve learned about doing budgets. Theyve learned about sunshine laws.ŽIn Whittens view, the charter change is the most important issue that voters can have a direct impact on.Im asking everybody to get educated. Tell your friends and neighbors,Ž Whitten said. You definitely have to come out and vote. This is the most important vote that you can have concerning the future of Crestview.ŽThe most important voteWhitten pushes charter change at town hallBy Renee Bell 682-6524 | @cnbRenee reneeb@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW „ The smiles told the story April 26 at the Crestview Bulldogs last home game of the season.A Crestview man and his son, John and Nathanael Smith, were there to cheer the Bulldogs on as they faced off against the Pensacola Tigers, winning 13-3.Nathanael, 22, spent his senior year at Crestview High School after his family moved to Crestview from Destin.

Lucindas great faith and strength sustained her through a two-year illness, while her husband Emile Michael Jobin stood by her side to love and comfort her for 16 years of happy marriage. She is survived by her three sons Raoul, Jefferson and Mitchell Rall, Grandson Charlton Rall, and granddaughters Enelise, Emma and Liilian Rall. Additional family includes step …grandchildren Kevin and Christopher Jobin. Lucinda or CindaŽ was the second child born to Lester Hall Sr. and Florence Charles Hall. She grew up in Chantilly Plantation, a historical house in Mount Meigs, east of Montgomery, Alabama. Her country upbringing did not limit her to the finer elements of poetry, art and ballet. She attended Pike Road Elementary, then Sydney Lanier High School where she gained a love of English and writing. Surrounded by many southern belles in Montgomery, it was no small feat for her to earn the nick-name SouthŽ for the yearbook picture. She attended All Saints Episcopal College in Vicksburg Mississippi and graduated in 1956. She embarked on a military life when she married US Army Captain Frederick A. Rall in 1961. After serving two tours in Vietnam, Fred was stationed in Washington D.C. in 1973 and then assigned to Heidelberg, Germany. Lucinda took advantage of her locale, traveling to Italy, France, Holland and Spain. On an embassy trip to Soviet Russia in 1976, she experienced personal surveillance by Russian agents. The family settled in Ft. Walton Beach in 1978 and upon her husbands retirement from the military, Lucinda worked as a secretary for several pastors at the Hurlburt Air Force Base Chapel in the late 1980s. Lucindas avid love of History and genealogy served her well as Regent the Emerald Coast chapter of The Daughters of The American Revolution for two years. Artistic and tasteful, Lucindas talents blossomed in many diverse fields; Interior Design, furniture and canvass painting, designer clothes sales, and her long time passion of writing childrens stories, which earned her a certificate from the Institute of Childrens Literature. A new adventure began when in 2006 she married E. Michael Jobin and spent every moment under his adoring eyes being loved and cared for. They shared a passion for the ocean and spent peaceful times on Michaels fishing boats cruising local waters with her dogs Max and Molly aboard. She loved her friends and spent time praying a nd worshiping in local churches, Westminster Presbyterian, Safe Harbor Presbyterian and Village Baptist of Destin. Besides friends and family, Lucinda is missed greatly by her husband, describing her as the most kind, compassionate, and generous wife on the face of this earth.Ž A Funeral Service was held on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at Emerald Coast Funeral home. The family will receive friends one hour prior. Expre ssions of love and sympathy may be placed and viewed online at www.emeraldcoastfuneralhome.LUCINDA HALL RALL JOBIN1937 2018

** A4 Saturday, May 26, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin FAITHPsalm 42:1-2 states, As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.Ž Many of us have been thirsty during our lifetime, but have you ever been so thirsty that all you could think about was having something to drink? I have. It is a terrible feeling. The tongue becomes dry. The throat feels like sandpaper. The body starts to react in ways it is unaccustomed. The brain starts to cry out, When will this horrible feeling end? When will this thirst be quenched?Ž Satisfaction becomes an obsession. That is how much our souls long for God. The soul cries out as it longs to be fed and nourished by God. It longs to be satisfied in a way that can be provided only by God. If you feel a restlessness that you seem to not be able to satisfy, if you feel as though something is missing from your life but just dont seem to know what it is, I dare say you are hungering and thirsting for the living waters that flow from God. In order to find the comfort you are seeking, you must consciously avail yourself to pathways of nourishment. You must take steps to allow Gods life-giving water flow into your heart, mind, and soul: read the Bible, pray, make time for silence, worship. Our God will satisfy the longing of your heart. He will grant you more fulfillment in life. He will quench the thirst of your soul. Psalms 42 ve rse 11 says, Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God. Yes, put your hope and trust in our Lord. He has promised to hold you in the palm of his hand and satisfy the longing of your heart. Trust his promise. Its a good one! The Rev.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, May 26, 2018 A5Mrs. Patricia Cole Wagner, age 79, passed away Wednesday, May 16, 2018. She was born on November 18, 1938 in New Orleans, Louisiana to Ralston Keller Cole and Patricia Edith Pittman Cole. Mrs. Wagner was a resident of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. She was Episcopalian by faith. She attended John J. Audubon Elementary, Fortier High School and Louise S. McGehee School. In 1973, Patricia relocated to the panhandle of Florida with her four children. Starting as a desk clerk at the Ramada Inn on Okaloosa Island, over the ensuing forty years, her work ethic, personality, and skill enabled her to rise to the position of executive director of convention sales. Other than brief stints as the convention sales director at properties in Mobile and Chattanooga, she spent the balance of her career at Sandestin Beach Resort. Important clients such as the Louisiana Bar Association repeatedly returned to Sandestin for their annual convention as a result of Patricias efforts. Through the years, she could often be seen conducting tours around Sandestins property in an array of sports cars. Her sharp wit and generous outreach to Sandestin employees made her a beloved executive for the company. She retired from Sandestin in 2010 after 35 years. In addition to her career success, Patricia developed a close-knit, fiercely loyal friendship with coworkers Teresa Corbin and Sonny Ramsey. Affectionately known as the Butt SistersŽ, the friends traveled together extensively, usually leaving joyful chaos in their wake. Mrs. Wagner was preceded in death by her parents, her daughter Gretchen Wagner McDowell, and her sister Chlotille Cole Fitzgerald. Mrs. Wagner is survived by her children Christopher Lee Wagner, John Marshall Wagner and his wife Kerrie, and Stephanie Keller Womack; grandchildren Hunter (Juliana) Wagner, Ashley Wagner, and John Womack; two brothers Ralston Pittman Cole and his wife Mary Lib, and Christopher Cole and his wife Marsha; survivors also include nieces and nephews whom she adored. The family would like to give special thanks to Alicia Brown, R.N. and Emerald Coast Hospice for their support and guidance.

It was hot and humid with red dirt coloring my sweat. My platoon was guarding one end of an old Special Forces airstrip that was overrun during the Tet Offensive two years earlier by thousands of NVA soldiers. We had returned in a massive air assault aboard dozens of Hueys. While teams were digging for the remains of Americans left behind during the horrific firefight in 1968, the Company Commander issued my orders. I would be taking my platoon on patrol east of the airstrip, deep in enemy territory to determine enemy activity. After just three months of field experience in Vietnam as a Lieutenant, I was considered a veteran.Ž I was with Bravo Company, ‡ Battalion, of the 196 Light Infantry Brigade for the American Division that was organized at Fort Devens, Massachusetts. Now we were just a few miles from Laos and at the entrance to the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Checking the maps, this was not going to be easy. We needed to have all the right equipment for such an operation. It would load down each man. The terrain involved steep hills, thick jungle, rivers and streams. Early the next morning, we departed the perimeter in a single file into the jungle. We hiked downward several hundred feet to a river that was wide and in sections quite deep. I agonized over the prospect of being ambushed while my men were crossing the river. We would be sitting ducks. Fortunately, we picked an area where the rivers depth was not over our heads. Loaded down with heavy rucksacks, ammo, weapons and more, we used a thick rope to keep from falling under. Later, movement in tributary streams would also be dangerous but they would be a fast move considering hacking through thick jungle was exhausting. On the first night, we set up Claymore mines with trip wires (called Mike Alphas or mechanical ambushes) on the trails leading past us. We tried to sleep, but just before dawn, the explosion was deafening in the quiet jungle setting. We took pictures of the young NVA soldier, stripped the body of weapons and papers, and left on patrol with our eyes wide open and nerves on end. For the next several days we would discover signs of the enemy everywhere we went. We marched silently over treacherous terrain, took short breaks due to the heat, and set up Mike Alphas at night. More explosions would rock us. Over these days and nights, we had caught half a dozen unwitting enemy soldiers too eager to move fast down the trails, inclu ding one Chinese officer. At one point, in an unusual area where the jungle was not so thick, massive explosions were hitting so near us that shrapnel pierced the M-16 of one of my soldiers as we were running out of the kill zone. As it happened, it was friendly fire from an ARVN (South Vietnamese) artillery battery. I was yelling in the radio handset to get them to stop. That night, after calling in my position coordinates and double checking that they knew where we were, I remember squinting in the darkness to see the bugs crawling around me. I hated leeches as you could not feel them until they filled up with your blood. I doused myself in bug juice,Ž the Armys incredibly effective insect repellent. I could not see the night sky. The jungle canopy ensured total blackness. We would not dig in this night. We just slept on the ground with the platoon in a circular position with our fatigues soaked from sweat and using our rucksacks as pillows. Noise disciplineŽ was obvious and needed no reminder from me. I remember wondering how alone we were even with 22 men in my platoon. I worried what would happen if we ran into a hundred or more enemy. We were a day or two away from the airstrip with a river between us. We had found and mapped the trail locations and captured weapons and documents that might be helpful to headquarters. It was time to return. While we were gone, over 20 enemy sappers attacked the airstrip. With satchel charges on their backs, they tried to sneak past the concertina surrounding the 155mm howitzers. As the enemies rushed toward the artillery positions, the big guns opened up and shot point-blank into the attackers. It was a slaughter. Apparently we had killed some of the NVA who were rushing to join their team for the surprise morning attack on the artillery battery set up next to the airstrip, near the positions held back in 1968. I saw the pictures of a frontend loader with its bucket filled with enemy bodies for a mass burial. I was thankful it was not Americans in that bucket. War is about killing and surviving. As brothers in arms, we lived to protect one another and survive another day. Unfortunately, some would come back to an unwelcoming world, some with wounds that did not heal. I am grateful most of my men made it back safely. Such are the memories on Memorial Day and every day.Combat memories on Memorial DayOn Saturday morning, heard all across the country, the royal wedding is on TV, the royal wedding is on,Ž screamed sons who could never quite throw a spiral. As a royal wedding correspondent, I had to watch the royal wedding. And, my youngest daughter has her wedding in November, so we all watched, which I hated. The Royals spent $40 million on their wedding and now I am the jerk who has to bring her Adairsville, Ga., wedding in at .0025 percent of that. Thanks a lot Meghan Markle from the B-level TV show Suits. A few observations about the royal wedding. The father of the bride was a noshow. I can only speculate that he saw the $40 million tab and escaped to Mexico. The wedding had the expected pomp and circumstance.Ž They did well on the pomp, but I got a sense they just phoned in the circumstance. In what the media reminds us is the most racist society of all time, the wedding was of an African-American woman who was once married, converted to Judaism, and had a black preacher and choir. This will mark the first time a Black-American becomes royalty, if you do not count Queen Latifah, Prince or Duke Ellington. The wedding was very PC. A Coptic Christian dude spoke too. They touched all the bases, except in a country that has let in a regrettable number of immigrants, no Muslim cleric spoke. I guess the risk of him marrying them by slipping up in the vows and saying Until death to America, do thou part.Ž All Meghan Markle had to do to marry Prince Harry is renounce her past religions and be baptized into King Henry VIIIs Church of England „ a religious order that has overseen the execution of many royal wives over that past few hundred years. The risk really pales by comparison of what she had to in Hollywood for a role in a Harvey Weinstein movie. The only video feed was from the BBC. And be careful Googling BBC videos. But the British Broadcasting Company fed the narrative to the 5,000 reporters there. As a shock to few, Fox News sent Shep Smith to cover the wedding. He pointed out that it was a surprise that Prince Harry kept his beard. Shep is also a man who has kept a beard for many years, so his insight was valuable. The newlyweds said no gifts, which was annoying to me because I had already gotten them one of those nice crock pots with a retractable cord and three settings. The couple instead wanted donations to The Invictus Games, a charity for injured war vets. If there is one thing, other than this wedding, that draws Great Briton and the USA together, are expensive, intractable and unwinnable wars of occupation in some of the worst hell-holes in the world. We will always have that. I guess we Americans are fascinated with royal weddings. Hollywood stars were there. The only thing I could compare it to in America would be the Westminster Dog Show, but with more tail sniffing. We do not have public spectacles like that here, unless you count the Congressional grilling of Facebooks Mark Zuckerberg and baseballs steroid user Jose Canseco. No politicians were invited. Which is always refreshing. Trump was predictably mad and vowed not to invite any of the royals to his next three weddings.Royal wedding observations Ron Hart J o h n S h o e m a k e r John ShoemakerLieutenant John Shoemaker at Hawk Hill Firebase.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, May 26, 2018 A7 By News Bulletin staffEvery element of folding the United States flag carries symbolism. The following instructions come from the American Legion. Folding the ag1. Straighten out the flag to full length and fold lengthwise once. 2. Fold it lengthwise a second time to meet the open edge, making sure that the union of stars on the blue field remains outward in full view. 3. A triangular fold is then started by bringing the striped corner of the folded edge to the open edge. 4. The outer point is then turned inward, parallel with the open edge, to form a second triangle.5. The diagonal or triangular folding is continued toward the blue union until the end is reached, with only the blue showing and the form being that of a cocked (three-corner) hat. Meaning of FlagFolding Program The flag-folding cer-emony represents the same religious principles on which our great country was originally founded.The portion of the flag denoting honor is the canton of blue containing the stars representing states our veterans served in uniform. The canton field of blue dresses from left to right and is inverted only when draped as a pall on the casket of a veteran who has served our country honor-ably in uniform.In the U.S. Armed Forces, at the ceremony of retreat, the flag is lowered, folded in a triangle fold and kept under watch throughout the night as a tribute to our nations honored dead. The next morning it is brought out and, at the ceremony of reveille, run aloft as a symbol of our belief in the resurrection of the body. Symbols for the folds of the ag1. The first fold of our flag is a symbol of life.2. The second fold is a symbol of our belief in eternal life. 3. The third fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veteran departing our ranks, and who gave a portion of his or her life for the defense of our country to attain peace throughout the world. 4. The fourth fold represents our weaker nature. As American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace, as well as in times of war, for His divine guidance. 5. The fifth fold is a tribute to our country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, "Our country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right, but it is still our country, right or wrong."6. The sixth fold is for where our hearts lie. It is with our heart that we pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.7. The seventh fold is a trib-ute to our armed forces, for it is through the armed forces that we protect our country and our flag against all enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of our republic.8. The eighth fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day, and to honor our mother, for whom it flies on Mothers Day.9. The ninth fold is a tribute to womanhood, for it has been through their faith, love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great have been molded. 10. The 10th fold is a tribute to father, for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of our country since he or she was first born. 11. The 11th fold, in the eyes of Hebrew citizens, represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies, in their eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. 12. The 12th fold, in the eyes of a Christian citizen, represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in their eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost. When the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost, reminding us of our national motto, "In God We Trust."After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it has the appearance of a cocked hat, ever remind-ing us of the soldiers who served under Gen. George Washington and the sailors and Marines who served under Capt. John Paul Jones and were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the U.S. Armed Forces, preserving for us the rights, privileges and freedoms we enjoy today.The source and the date of origin of this Flag Fold-ing Procedure is unknown, however some sources attribute it to the Gold Star Mothers of America while others to an Air Force chaplain stationed at the United States Air Force Academy. Others consider it to be an urban legend. It is provided as a patriotic service to all.Folding the U.S. agBy News Bulletin contributorVALPARAISO „ The Heritage Museum of Northwest Florida announces its participa-tion in the ninth annual Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to the nations active duty mili-tary personnel and their families from Memorial Day weekend, May 26 through Labor Day weekend, September 1.A list of participating museums nationwide is available at arts.gov/bluestarmuseums."ƒfor military families relocating to Northwest Florida, our Museum is a great place to get to know the community and learn about the history and culture of the area..." museum manager Gina Marini. said "ƒwe have a lot to offer here."The free admission program is available for those currently serving in the United States Military … Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard as well as active duty and reserv-ist, National Guardsman (regardless of status), U.S. Public Health Com-missioned Corps, NOAA Commissioned Corps, and up to five family members.Qualified members must show a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), DD From 1173 ID card (dependent ID), or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card for entrance into a participating Blue Star Museum.The Heritage Museum of Northwest Florida is located at 115 Westview Ave., Valparaiso.
