Rick Scott made first aid training for Florida students part of state law.A brief section of Bill 7055, posted on http:// laws.flrules.org, recommends first aid basic training every two years for students beginning in the sixth grade, and that the training must be based on a nationally recognized program using "the most current evidence-based emergency cardiovascular care guidelines."The bill further states, "The instruction must allow students to practice the psychomotor skills associated with perform-ing cardiopulmonary resuscitation and use an automated external defibrillator when a school district has the equip-ment necessary to perform the instruction. Private and public partnerships for providing training or necessary funding are encouraged."The AED is a device that can check a person's heartbeat and shock the heart back into a normal rhythm when it stops functioning, according to the American Heart Asso-ciation's website, www.heart.org. The device also provides guided instruc-tion on its use.Dexter Day, Crestview High School principal, said CHS students currently have the option of taking CPR classes as one of their electives, after which they are CPR certified/A personal view of the billThe Simas, Stacey and Shawn, and their two children, Lexi and Carter, are among people who have worked to get the bill passed over the last two years.They became involved in the legislative side of things two years ago when Lexi, then 16, had a car-diac arrest „ meaning her heart malfunctioned and stopped beating „while running on a treadmill at a Viera gym.First aid training for Florida students passes in combined billStacey, Lexi, Shawn, and Carter Sima are pictured during Lexis Senior Night. [SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN] By Aaron Jacobs @cnb_ajacobs ajacobs@crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW „ Jennifer Jackson never expected her Facebook group to become so popular. It took on a life of its own. This was not expected. It was kind of a knee-jerk reaction to even start the group,Ž Jackson said. Then it just took off.ŽJackson and her husband, Terry, started Crestview Citizens for Change on Facebook in 2017, along with another Crestview resident, Matt Gates. They formed thegroup after the 2017 municipal election, in which Joe Blocker was re-elected to the city council with fewer than 600 votes cast in the race, a 3.8 percent voter turnout.That was appalling,Ž Gates said. So the Jacksons and I got together with this idea that we were going to spur some involvement and get people involved in the city.ŽSince then, the main focus for the group has been to push to amend the city charter to allow for a city manager. The city is in the process of craft-ing the ballot question that will appear on the August 28 primary ballot. If approved, it would allow the city coun-cil to appoint a city manager to oversee the various city departments. Gates thinks that would be a good thing.I want a qualified profes-sional to come in and set us up for success,Ž Gates said. We dont need a politician. We need a professional.Ž One problem with the cur-rent form of government, Gates said, is that things move too slowly due to the city council only meeting two or three times a month.These guys are expected to run a city twice a month. I cant do my job twice a month. If I cant do my little thing over here that only has to do with me, how can they run a city effectively twice a month?ŽThe city council currently holds a regular meeting the Crestview activism group tops 1,500 membersStaff report"Once a Bulldog, always a Bulldog" was a recurring theme in the messages to the 390 new graduates of Crestview High School Friday evening.

** A4 Wednesday, May 30, 2018 | Crestview News BulletinBecause the people at the gym knew CPR and used an AED, they were able to resuscitate Lexi until paramedics arrived."As we stood over Lexi as she laid in the emergency room, we didnt know if she would live or die. The helpless feeling you have as a parent is indescribable,"her dad, Shawn,said in a previous News Bulletin interview."Lexi never had really any health problems. She had been an athlete since 4 years old. She started playing T-ball and soccer when we lived in Crestview. Sudden cardiac arrest struck our family out of nowhere ... I made a promise to God that we would pay this forward if he gave her another chance and he did. The Lord has worked this out for our good and the good of others," Shawn said.Lexi spent three weeks in the hospital. Doctors implanted a cardiac defibrillator inher chest that has to be checked by a cardiologist every three months, but they cleared her to return to school and all activities except contact sports. She finished her junior and senior years as a var-sity cheerleader at Viera High School.Along the way, she and her father requested that the Brevard County school board pass legis-lation for her fellow high school students to take CPR training, which they did Nov. 21.Previous efforts to get Senate and House CPR bills passed in Flor-idafailed. "It was called an unfunded mandate, meaning the state did not want to mandate this training without the funds," Shawn Sima said in a previous interview."Essentially the cost should not be an issue at all. Most of the CPR kits are donated. We could honestly set up a Go Fund Me and have the money. We are actually working with the Ameri-can Heart Association to possibly set up an area for donation in the state of Florida," he said. BILLFrom Page A1second Monday of each month and a workshop the fourth Monday. Special meetings are scheduled as needed.Gates said a major ben-efit of the city manager form of government is that the city manager is appointed, so he or she can be fired by the council for poor performance without having to wait for another election. The cities of Milton and DeFu-niak Springs recently fired their respective city managers, leading to some controversy among Crestviews neighbors to the east and west.Jackson said she hasnt thought much about what the group will focus on after the August charter vote, but she feels the group will find some way to push solutions to the problems thatappear with Crestviews growth.Its growing. Theres nothing you can do to stop it,Ž Jackson said. If were growing population-wise, then we need to be growing to support our population.Ž Jackson and Gates both hope the group has an impact on voter turnout in the August 28 election and the upcoming municipal elections in 2019. Two city council seats and the mayors office will be up for grabs in that election, scheduled for March.If this whole move results in 20 percent voter turnout, Im going to see it as a success,Ž Gates said.Editor's note: While group members see mem-bership numbers above 1,500, due to privacy settings, non members visiting the Crestview Citizens For Change page may only see a total of approximately 1,370 members. FAECBOOKFrom Page A1 My first car was a 1991 Honda Civic, a basic model that was so barebones it didnt have automatic anything. There was no cupholder, not even a clock. But at 16-years-old, after sharing a car with my mom for six months, I didnt care. I had originally wanted a newer model Civic, one that wasnt already six years old and didnt look like a box-like white cube. My father told me, however, that I should feel lucky to even get a car. He, after all, drove a 1931 Model A Ford, a basic model business coupe as his first car when he was in high school in the late 1960s. When I was learning to drive, my dad would take me to the parking lot at our neighborhood school on the weekend to practice. I think that was more stressful on him than it was on me. But I can still hear his motto „ the same his dad told him; that a car was to get you from point A to point B safely and as reliably as possible.Ž Anything else is just icing on the cake,Ž he always said. Thats something that has stuck with me through the years. I drove that first Honda Civic through the rest of high school, all of college and grad school. I tried to make it mine: In high school I used a portable CD player Walkman and Velcro-ed it onto my dashboard so that I could play CDs. I bought an after-market cupholder that screwed onto the emergency brake so that Id have somewhere to put my drinks. And I bought a tiny clock and adhered it to the area where a digital clock would have gone, if the factory had installed one. The car wasnt perfect. It wasnt pretty. But for seven years, it got me from point A to point B, safely and reliably, only breaking down once. In 2004, however, the air conditioning died. It was going to cost more to fix than what the car was worth. While finishing up graduate school, I bought another used Honda, which Id drive for another seven years. Then, when I was a married mother of two with a third child on the way, we bought another used Honda, a minivan. But always, in the back of my mind when Im thinking about cars, I hear my dads voice, telling me from point A to point B.Ž Last week, I took my 9-year-old daughter out one evening after dinner to buy a new book she was asking for and we got frozen yogurt afterward as a special treat. As she climbed out of the back seat of our minivan in the parking lot of the yogurt shop, she froze. OMG!Ž she shouted. I WANT THAT CAR.Ž In front of her was parked a late model Chevrolet Camaro painted metallic gold. It wasnt just painted a normal gold. It was almost foiled gold, looking like it had been dipped in 14K. Is that real gold?Ž my daughter asked in awe. I told her no. Can we get our van painted like that?Ž she asked. When I laughed and said no, she told me that one day, when she turned 16, she was going to get a gold sports car like that. I just laughed. But then, I got to thinking. Its only five short years until my daughter is eligible for a drivers permit „ six years before she gets her license. Im hoping by then the metallic gold Camaro will be long forgotten, and that we can instill in her our long-held family belief of reliable, used cars to get from point A to point B.Ž But I also know that 16 will come quickly. Too fast, for me. Lydia Seabol Avant writes The Mom Stop for The Tuscaloosa News in Alabama.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Wednesday, May 30, 2018 A5By Brian HughesCrestview Police DepartmentCRESTVIEW „ Three new Crestview Police Department recruits ably passed the agencys strenuous, department-mandated physical abilities test, or PAT, on a hot Tues-day morning. But perhaps as equally stressful as the PAT was the interview that followed for two of the candidates.Brian Foreman, Nellie Roberts and Ann Ruryk each successfully com-pleted the vigorous course in under the maximum allowable time of six minutes, four seconds. Without even a chance to change into spiffier duds, Foreman and Ruryk were seated outside Interim Chief Jamie Grants office waiting to interview for police officer positions.Each of the three had graduated from a Florida police academy and received their law enforce-ment officer certification.Roberts, having already successfully interviewed with Police Department command staff members, was a step ahead of her fellow recruits once she passed the PAT. She now moved into the background check phase.In addition to command staff, Cmdr. Grant expanded the interview panel to include patrol officers and investigators. These are the law enforce-ment officers alongside whom a new officer would be serving, and under some of whom new officers undergo approximately 14 weeks of field training before they are authorized to hit the streets of Crest-view as full-fledged police officers. After nearly half an hour each of prepared questions, exploratory questions and candidates own statements, both Mr. Foreman and Ms. Ruryk were given conditional offers of employment as Crestview Police officers, joining Ms. Roberts in the extensive background check phase.All of them are strong candidates,Ž operations Commander Andrew Schneider said. Were looking forward to having them as part of our family here at the Crestview Police Department.ŽNew CPD o cer candidates sweat out physical test, interviewInvestigator Chaise Rawles, Crestview Police training of“ cer, explains the agencys physical abilities test „ the PAT „ procedure to potential recruits Brian Foreman, Nellie Roberts and Ann Ruryk.

On Thursday, June 14, we will celebrate Flag Day, our flag was adopted in 1777. On Wednesday, July 4, we celebrate Independence Day, the day we declared our independence from Great Britain in 1776. Websters 1828 online dictionary defines Freedom: A state of exemption from the power or control of another; liberty; exemption from slavery, servitude or confinement; freedom is personal, civil, political, and religious.Ž Liberty is defined: Freedom from restraint, in a general sense, and applicable to the body, or to the will or mind. The body is at liberty when not confined; the will or mind is at liberty when not checked or controlled. Political liberty is sometimes used as synonymous with civil liberty but it more properly designates the liberty of a nation, the freedom of a nation or state from all unjust abridgment of its rights and independence by another nation.Ž (http://webstersdictionary1828.com) Do we take our Liberty for granted? Are we appreciative that our forefathers fought and attained freedom? Our military fights for our freedom, do we appreciate their sacrifices? What about the Police and Fire Fighters who protect us? When I hear emergency sirens, I stop and say a quick prayer for the safety of the first responders as well as those hurting. What are some ways we can show our love for our Country and for those who have died or been wounded to keep us free? Perhaps devote time to Habitat to Humanity and help build a home for a wounded veteran. Maybe become a volunteer advocate for veterans that need help navigating the VA system, here is a reference (https://vetadvocates. org/about-nova/.) Offering to watch a soon to be deployed service members dogs and/or cats, would be a big help. We residents of Crestview can make a difference. Singing Patriotic songs about the United States of America makes me love our Country more and I love the sight of our flag flying in the wind. I have several favorites patriotic songs, here are a few: God Bless America; America the Beautiful; The Stars and Stripes Forever; God Bless the USA; Columbia, Gem of the Ocean; The Star Spangled Banner. Have a blessed Flag Day, Independence Day and I hope that you took the time to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom on Memorial Day! Janice Lynn Crose, a former accountant, lives in Crestview with her husband, Jim; her two rescue collies, Shane and Jasmine; and two cats, Kathryn and Prince Valiant.HAPPENINGSFreedom and liberty Janice Lynn Crose What are some ways we can show our love for our Country and for those who have died or been wounded to keep us free?Shes too young to be so forlorn, but when a reporter asked the teen if she was surprised that a mass shooting struck her high school in Santa Fe, Texas, she replied it was only a matter of time. Literally, days after Oliver North, the incoming president of the NRA, called a group of student-activists civil terroristsŽ for demanding we adults do something „ anything „ about gun violence, another mass shooting occurred on an American high school campus. The great majority us will do what we did the last time: Well move past the wreckage and the trauma. Well tell ourselves what we always tell ourselves: Kids are resilient; theyll find a way to carry on. Well pretend theres a getting overŽ playing dead so you wont die or watching a classmate bleed to death. Well pretend we never heard the experts warnings that, untreated, the emotional damage left in the wake of such incidents will result in more tragedy. But to change this national equation means someone in power will have to sacrifice his or her own ambition for the greater good, and, well ... Triple digits High school has always been difficult to navigate. Youre taken out of the comfort of your elementary school and thrown into a social maze where you spend four years trying to find out where you belong. Learning how to mix with others isnt easy, but its what makes the high school experience invaluable. It shouldnt, however, be downright dangerous. No kid should have to wonder if today is the day hes going to die in a classroom closet. It shouldnt be this hard. Not in Chicago. Not in Jackson Township, Ohio. Not in Santa Fe, Texas. Last year, the U.S. had more school shootings than 12 other industrialized countries put together „ by triple digits. Its time to stop pretending such things dont happen in certain types of communities „ high achieving, privileged, homogeneous „ when thats exactly where they happen. Its also time for more parents to become jerks; that is, to be a lot more nosy and intrusive. How could your kid be enamored with Nazism and you not know it? The hard stu Lets quit pretending there isnt something fundamentally broken in a culture in which more young Americans have been shot and killed in school this year than have died in combat in Afghanistan. From silent film shootem-ups to video games, we are a nation besotted with gun violence. We need to stop saying nothing can be done when, in truth, there has been little desire to enact the kind of changes voters have said they want. It isnt that we cant do the hard stuff; were the country that cured polio, landed men on the moon and invented the internet. Money, fear and an addiction to power have weakened the will and obstructed the way. We adults have the gall to harrumph and be shocked (shocked!) when student-activists curse and fail to give elected officials the deference theyre used to getting. But why shouldnt they? They know what happened in Columbine, in Newtown, at Virginia Tech and even Las Vegas, and they know nothing has changed. Weve lied to them repeatedly about making things safer, then have the nerve to accuse them of making matters worse when they call BS.Ž Reach Charita M.

[SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN] Southside pets Along quiet Alaqua Bayou on the Eglin Air Force Base (AFB) Reservation, Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance (CBA) staff and AmeriCorps members have been busy. During the hot, early summer days along the Florida Panhandle, the team works quickly to move plastic buckets of limestone from the truck to the shoreline. Each piece of limestone … sourced from Vulcan Materials … is carefully placed in a pyramid shape just offshore to protect the bayous banks. At high tide, the top of the reef pokes up from beneath the waves. Alaqua Bayou has been experiencing shoreline erosion, a result of both boat wakes and storm events. The erosion was becoming so pronounced that Eglin AFB staff grew concerned about the natural and cultural resources adjacent to the bayou, and sought an innovative solution: a living shoreline. According to the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration, "Living shorelines are a green infrastructure technique using native vegetation alone or in combination with offshore sills to stabilize the shoreline." To protect Eglins coastal property in Alaqua Bayou, CBA planned two reefs, one made from recycled oyster shell, one from limestone rock. The team completed the oyster reef breakwater in late 2017, utilizing shell recycled from local restaurants in Okaloosa and Walton County. After drying in the sun for 3-6 months, the shells were bagged using marine-grade mesh by CBA, AmeriCorps, and community members before placement along a 1700 linear foot reef. Since completion, erosion has noticeably slowed, while sand and sediment has built back up along the bayou. The new limestone reef, slated for completion in summer of 2018, will stretch 750 linear feet. In addition to stabilizing the edge of the bayou, the limestone will act as a comparison to the oyster reef. CBA staff continually monitor the reefs to measure oyster growth, shoreline accumulation, and wildlife usage. In addition to reducing erosion and providing a home for marine critters like crabs and juvenile fish, the reefs serve as critical habitat for oysters. Juvenile oysters … known as spat … latch on to the hard shells and limestone to survive. As each oyster can filter up to 50 gallons of water each and every single day, the reef breakwaters improve water quality within the bayou. Once both reefs have been completed, the Eglin project will serve as a model for other public and private landowners throughout the Panhandle. Living shorelines reduce erosion, provide for wildlife, and improve overall water quality.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Wednesday, May 30, 2018 B3 By News Bulletin contributorWith the release of the 2017 Boating Accident Statistical Report, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-mission (FWC) encourages boaters to focus on simple, effective steps that make boating safer."For 2017, the leading contributor to boating accidents was the opera-tors inattention or failure to maintain a proper lookout. It is critical for oper-ators to be diligent in observing and being aware of what is going on around them," said Lt. Seth Wagner from the FWCs Boating and Waterways Section.In 2017, 261 boating accidents involved collisions and 38 percent of all collisions were due to inattention or the operator failing to maintain a proper lookout."Its important that while out relaxing and enjoying Floridas beautiful waters, boaters remember to be safe," Wagner said. Florida had 766 boating accidents in 2017, 52 more accidents than in 2016. However, there was no change in the number of fatalities. A total of 67 people lost their lives last year in boat-ing accidents. Falls overboard have been the leading type of fatal accident since 2003, with drowning as the leading cause of death.Eighty-one percent of these victims were not wearing a life jacket. Todays boaters can choose from sev-eral models of light and comfortable inflatable belt-pack or over-the-shoulder life jackets that can be worn while fishing or enjoying the sun. Boating accident statistics support an important message: "Life Jackets Save Lives."The FWC is responsible for reviewing, analyzing and compiling boating accident data for the state. Its statistical report details boating acci-dents and their causes. The theme of accident-related messages from FWC staff is clear: Officers want to help keep Floridas beautiful waterways a safe place to boat.For a copy of the 2017 Boating Acci-dent Statistical Report, visit MyFWC.com/Boating and select "Safety & Education" and "Boating Accidents."FWC cautions boatersFWC Of“ cer Stephens checks boaters.

Floridas beaches are nurs-eries for species like Snowy Plovers, Black Skimmers and Least Terns."Just like people, birds love our beaches too... were asking beachgoers and boaters to give nesting birds some space," said Julie Wraithmell, Audubon Florida's executive director. "Eggs and fluffy chicks are on our sandy shores and tree islands right now, and the end of May is a criti-cal time for Florida's iconic coastal birds.ŽMany nesting sites are vis-ibly posted and well-marked on Florida beaches to protect them from human distur-bance. Unfortunately, when boaters or beachgoers enter posted areas, they may unin-tentionally cause the death of chicks and eggs. When parents are frightened from nests, chicks and eggs are left vulnerable to predators, overheating in the summer sun, crushing under foot (in beach nests), or falling and drowning in water beneath the nest (from tree nests). A single disturbance can destroy an entire colony."Whether or not human disturbance is intentional, the sad result for birds is the same," said Dr. Marianne Korosy, Audubon Floridas director of bird conservation. "By following Audubons easy tips, we can all work together to ensure this holiday weekend is safe and enjoyable for people and birds."Volunteer "bird stewards" chaperone nesting bird colonies on many Flor-ida beaches. These stewards help educate beachgoers about nesting colonies while reminding them not to enter protected areas. For more information or to volunteer, email FLConservation@audubon.org. Audubon's beach tips:€ Keep your distance. Respect areas posted with signs, even if you don't see birds inside them. Birds, eggs, and nests are well-camouflaged.€ Leave no trace. Take all your trash with you and always dispose of fishing line and tackle appropriately.€ Avoid disturbing birds. If birds take flight or appear agitated, you are too close.€ Keep pets leashed and far away from birds. Even on a leash, dogs are perceived as predators by birds.€ Dont feed birds or wildlife. Feeding attracts predators like crows and gulls that will prey on eggs and chicks of beach-nesting birds.€ Keep quiet and calm near nesting areas. Beach activi-ties like flying kites or using personal fireworks can cause parents to abandon nests. Help prevent a catastrophe for vulnerable chicks and eggs.€ Look out for nesting birds, even outside of posted areas. Beach-nesting birds cant read signs and some-times nest outside of posted areas. If you notice birds circling noisily overhead, you may be near a nesting colony. Leave quietly and enjoy from a distance.Audubon reminds beachgoers to share the shores with baby birdsBlack skimmers raise their young on a beach. [JIM GRAY | FLORIDA AUDOBON] LIFESTYLE

Brown dog ticks are found mainly on dogs and can carry Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. American dog ticks are also usually found on dogs but will also attach to other mammals and humans.They also can transmit Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.American dog ticks can cause paralysis when they attach to the base of the skull or spinal column.Recovery usually occurs within 24 hours of tick removal. Gulf Coast Ticks are similar to the American dog tick with larger mouthparts. They transmit a less severe relative of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.They are commonly found on the ears of large mammals such as horses and cattle. Lone Star Tick is the most common human-biting tick in Florida. They transmit Southern Tick Associated Rash Illness which is similar to Lyme disease. Black-legged tick, also called deer tick, is most commonly known as the carrier of Lyme disease. Here are a few ways to prevent tick-borne illnesses: € Remove ticks as soon as possible. € Wear light colored clothing so ticks can easily be seen. € Keep all clothing buttoned, zipped and tucked in. € Use Repellents with 20-30% DEET on exposed skin. € Apply Permethrins to clothing and allow them to dry before wearing. € Avoid brushing against plants in tick-infested areas. € Clear brush along pathways and walk in the middle of pathways. If you are bitten by a tick and develop symptoms, contact your physician. Early diagnosis is best and makes treating tick disease easier and more effective.

Its rare that every-one can sit down and eat every meal of the day together, see new things, discover unex-pected adventures or explore a different way of life, but on a great family vacation, these things happen several times a day.The hardest part of any vacation can be deciding where to go. You want to find a place kids and adults will love, and have an experience that will create lasting memo-ries for years to come.To help narrow down your plans, here are five things to keep in mind when planning:1. Seek out unique experiences. The beautiful thing about traveling with kids is being able to celebrate their firsts.Ž That magical excite-ment they have when they first feel the beach between their toes or see the ocean for the first time will warm your heart. This is why so many families head to a seaside getaway.2. Act like a kid with your kids. Though you have adult responsibilities, that doesnt mean you cant act like a kid now and then. Build time into your itinerary for you to jump into the ocean, build sandcas-tles, float down your hotels lazy river or eat ice cream like its going out of style. 3. Let everyone pick a fun thing to do. You dont have to do all the planning on your own. In fact you shouldnt. Let the kids help to plan activities for your vacation. For instance, when visiting Myrtle Beach many parents present a list of kid-friendly activities to their little ones „ such as the SkyWheel and Ripleys Aquarium „ and let them decide which one to visit. Allowing your kids to participate in the process like this helps to give them a sense of accomplishment, and feel like they made this vacation happen.4. Stay where the fun is. When trying to decide where to stay, narrow your options down by considering how close you are to dining, attrac-tions and other activities in the area. Theres nothing like being able to step outside of your hotel room and take a walk on the beach, collect sand dollars or build a sand-castle. Of course, lodging with an indoor water park will get an A+ from your kids.5. Plan enough, but dont overdo it. While an itinerary is great and can keep everyone on schedule, make sure to include time for relaxation or spur-of-the-moment activities. Be flexible. Sunsets, sandcastles and 100 other per-fect memories often happen at the spur of the moment. Many times, the best part of a vaca-tion is the surprise you never planned.„ BrandpointFamily Movie Night Tomb Raider (2018)Rated: PG-13 Length: 118 minutesSynopsis: Out on DVD now is this action-adventure film starring award-winning actress Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, the fiercely inde-pendent daughter of a missing adventurer.

The menu features authentic Napoletana-style brick-oven pizzas, homemade lasagna and gnocchi and other Italian favorites. The wine list includes a variety imported from Italy, starting at $15 per bottle.Giuseppe Vitagliano had originally hoped to have the restaurant open in March, but he ran into some problems that caused delays.The problem was our pizza oven took three months just for the shipping,Ž he said. Its 5,000 pounds.ŽThe brick pizza oven was brought in from Italy, and the roof of the building had to be removed in one area in order to install the oven. The entire process took five months from start to finish, three just to get the oven to Crestview.The pizza oven is my toy,Ž Vitagliano said. Its perfect for cooking the real Napole-tana style.ŽItalian restaurant opens in CrestviewBy Jim Saunders The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE„ In a major move in the states utility industry, the parent company of Florida Power & Light said Monday it will buy Northwest Floridas Gulf Power as part of a $6.475 billion deal.NextEra Energy Inc. plans to buy Gulf Power, the Flor-ida City Gas natural-gas company and ownership interests in two power plants from The Southern Company. The purchase of Gulf Power and the stakes in the power plants, which are subject to federal approval, are expected to close during the first half of 2019, while the Florida City Gas pur-chase is slated for the third quarter of 2018, according to a NextEra Energy announcement.The deal would expand NextEra Energys already-massive footprint in the state. Its Florida Power & Light subsidiary is by far the largest electric utility in Florida, serving nearly 5 million customers. Gulf Power, with about 450,000 customers in eight counties, is the largest util-ity in the Panhandle.Florida City Gas has about 110,000 residential and commercial natural-gas customers in Miami-Dade, Brevard, St. Lucie and Indian River counties.NextEra said it will buy a 100 percent ownership interest in a power plant near Cocoa known as Plant Oleander, which has contracts to sell electricity to the Florida Municipal Power Agency and Semi-nole Electric Cooperative. It also will buy a 65 percent stake in a generating unit, known as Stanton A, at the Stanton Energy Center complex near Orlando. The unit is jointly owned by The Southern Company, the Orlando Utilities Com-mission, the Kissimmee Utility Authority and the Florida Municipal Power Agency, according to information on The South-ern Company website."These transactions will provide meaningful bene-fits for the state of Florida, and Gulf Power and Florida City Gas customers, as well as NextEra Energy shareholders,Ž Jim Robo, chairman and chief execu-tive officer of NextEra Energy, said in a prepared statement. Importantly, these transactions are consistent with our longstanding, disciplined approach of maintaining the strength of our balance sheet and credit ratings, both of which are among the strongest in the industry.ŽNextEra Energy plans to finance the deal through the issuance of new debt, according to the announce-ment. The $6.475 billion total includes NextEra Energy assuming $1.4 bil-lion of Gulf Power debt.Subsidiaries of The Southern Company, which is based in Atlanta, operate in numerous states. In addition to Gulf Power, the subsidiaries include Alabama Power, Georgia Power and Mississippi Power. The Florida Public Service Commission last year approved a settlement agreement that set base rates for Gulf Power. In the announcement, NextEra Energy said that with the addition of Gulf Power, Florida City Gas and the power plants, the Juno Beach-based company will be even better positioned to generate long-term shareholder value through a more robust financial profile, greater scale and an expanded platform for growth.ŽBut the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, which frequently intervenes in utility cases in Florida, expressed concern Monday about the purchase."While Southern Alliance for Clean Energy is still reviewing this deal, it raises concerns that any one monopoly utility would control such a significant percentage of Floridas energy market," the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy said in a prepared statemet. "Such consolidation of control may limit competition at a time when we need more and not less."Florida's largest power company is getting a lot biggerBy Aaron Jacobs (850) 682-6524 | @cnb_ajacobs ajacobs@crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW „ Richbourg School's eighth annual gradu-ation ceremony took place on May 18 in the school gymna-sium.
