The most pressing issue, however, was the precise word-ing of the three referendum questions that will appear on the August 28 ballot.This is a long process,Ž council president J.B. Whit-ten said. We wanted to make sure it got done expeditiously, so the reason we called a spe-cial meeting tonight was to make sure we got this done and over to the supervisor of elections.ŽThe deadline for ballot questions to be submitted is June 15.The three questions will allow voters to decide on specific changes to the citys charter that could alter the way the city operates.Question one will ask voters to allow the city to repeal and replace the current city charter in order to modernize it and delete obsolete and redundantŽ language. The second question will ask voters to approve a switch to a city manager form of government. The third question will ask voters to allow for the city clerk, currently an elected position, to be appointed by the City Council. Whitten has campaigned in favor of the changes, particu-larly when it comes to moving to a city manager form of government.This is the most important vote that you can have concerning the future of Crestview,Ž Whitten said at a May 24 town hall meeting.Crestview referendum questions set for August ballotCrestview City Hall Hayes Whitten By Tom McLaughlin315-4435 | @TomMnwfdn tmclaughlin@nwfdailynews.comCRESTVIEW … Mayor David Cadle said Thursday he hopes to wrap up an internal investigation of Police Chief Tony Taylor by the end of next week.He said an announcement in the case will be made Friday, June 8, if not before.ŽTaylor, Crestviews police chief since 2012, was placed on paid administra-tive leave May 9, but the Police Department and mayor, who over-sees the city force, have said little about why. Public records show that three other Crestview police officers „ Cristina Dawson, Investigator Shawn Temple and K-9 offi-cer Jay Seals „ were placed on paid leave the day after Taylor was sent home.Cadle said Thursday he was not at liberty to say whether the personnel moves were related.But an attorney representing Taylor and the other officers said the citys actions were taken in retali-ation for Taylor, Temple and Seals backing Dawson, who reported discriminatory harassmentŽ in the Police Department.An officer came to the chief alleging discriminatory harassment and the chief reported it to the mayor,Ž Tallahassee-based attorney Tiffany Cruz said. Shortly afterward the mayor placed him on admin-istrative leave.ŽTemple and Seals con-firmed the complaint of the female officer (Dawson),Ž Cruz said, and 24 to 36 hours after the chief was placed on leave they were placed on leave.ŽCadle said shortly after announcing the action taken against Taylor that his office was looking into several issuesŽ regarding the chief and how he had followed certain city and/ or department regulations and protocols.The mayor declined again Thursday to discuss specific reasons for placing Taylor and the other officers on leave, but said about 11 peopleŽ have been interviewed during the investigation.Police chief probe continuesTaylor An attorney alleges the city retaliated against Police Chief Tony Taylor and three o cersBy Aaron Jacobs (850) 682-6524 | @cnb_ajacobs ajacobs@crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW „ The wait is finally over.The highly-anticipated opening of Crestviews first Chik-Fil-A restaurant officially came May 31, when new owner Kyle Schisler cut the ceremonial ribbon in front of the building.The wait especially paid off earlier that morning for 100 lucky customers who camped out overnight in order to win free Chik-Fil-A for a year.

After hearing about that, the students were onboard.

They helped run the booth by carrying signs up and down the hallways announc-ing the booth was open. They also kept records of what stu-dents got pictures and which class to return the picture to after they were developed.They would help students choose props and poses for their picture on the photo booth,Ž Constantine said.Students raised a little over $700, and after deduct-ingbooth expenses, donated $500 to the manor to fix their freezer that was broken and needed repair.There was only one question left a student asked, Constan-tine said.Who are we going to help next year?ŽWalker Elementary students ra ise $500 for Crestview ManorJennifer Constantines Varying Exceptionalities students present a $500 check to Crestview Manor representatives.

** A4 Saturday, June 2, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin FAITHBy Brian Hughes Crestview Police DepartmentCRESTVIEW „ When the lavish fireworks display lit up the cloudy sky over the ESPN Wide World of Sports Com-plex at Walt Disney World, two Crestview Police officers were there, cheering the start of the 2018 summer Special Olympics Florida games.After almost half a year of local fundraising and organizing activities benefiting Special Olympics, Commu-nity Services Officers Wanda Hulion and Sam Kimmons traveled to Orlando for the May 18 and 19 games and the colorful, spectacle-filled opening ceremonies.Officers from law enforcement agencies from throughout the state, Crestview included, descended on the ESPN field for the May 18 evening open-ing ceremony, an inspiring, festive evening of parading athletes, flashing lights on police vehicles and fireworks.Despite a steady downpour at one point, nary a spirit was dampened. Quite the opposite, the Crestview officers reported.Blue lights from scores of police and sheriffs departments vehicles added to the dazzle as they paraded around the main field, motorcycle officers preceding the other vehicles, which formed a blue-lit path for the athletes who come running in behind the torchbearer.The torch „ the same one carried in the Law Enforce-ment Torch Run in Crestview „ was passed from athlete to athlete as they ran through a gauntlet of honor guards-men from multiple statewide law enforcement agencies, the officers saluting when it passed before them.Everybody was so excited,Ž Officer Kimmons said. You had to be there. Its one thing to see it on the video, but being on the field with them (the ath-letes and officer supporters) is a whole other thing.ŽWhile Officer Kimmons was driving his Crestview Police vehicle around the field, Officer Hulion got to watch the opening ceremony from the stands.It was absolutely phenom-enal,Ž she said. That crowd was there for those blue lights. When they entered the field, (the athletes and their families) lit up for that.ŽOfficer Hulion ended up being the recipient of an out-pouring of appreciation from athletes and their families who knew that law enforcement agencies had been helping them prepare for their Orlando games.Watching the athletes and families in the stands, I didnt expect it to be that kind of response,Ž she said. Being in uniform, I had athletes and people coming up to me and hugging on me and saying, Thank you for what youre doing for us. It was a humbling, phenomenal experience.ŽThe next day, the games began. The Crestview officers joined colleagues from throughout the state in providing logistical support. While Officer Hulion helped shuttle athletes to their respective events, Officer Kimmons was presenting medals to the victors in the bocce event.I was assigned bronze medals to pass out,Ž Officer Kimmons said. I didnt get to award any to Okaloosa County athletes, though. But that was a good thing, because they were all winning golds and silvers!ŽThe officers, back on duty in Crestview the day after their busy weekend, are already planning fundraisers and events for the 2019 Special Olympics. Watch for announcements early next year of tip-a-cop events, T-shirt sales and the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run through Crestview.Crestview PD o cers support Special Olympics in OrlandoWomen from Okaloosa and Walton counties gather for the of“ cial Women United Launch Party.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, June 2, 2018 A5Cruz said none of her clients has been interviewed, and Taylor was not told why he was placed on leave. She said the other officers have been notified that they had committed policy violations, but received no specifics as to what policies were violated or how they were violated.Taylor was not available for comment Thursday. Efforts to reach Dawson and Seals were not successful. No contact information could be found for Temple.Taylor was placed on leave the day the city was scheduled to hold a law enforcement memorial service that he had been scheduled to co-host with the departments chaplain. The memorial service was canceled on the Monday before it was to be held, but no one told Taylor, who was on vaca-tion that day.On Tuesday, May 8, it fell upon Taylor to notify fellow chiefs of police and other law enforcement dignitaries of the memo-rial services cancellat ion.I sincerely apologize for the short notice, how-ever, our Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony scheduled for tomorrow (May 9) was canceled yesterday in my absence without my knowledge or consent,Ž the email said.Police Department spokesman Brian Hughes told the Daily News after Taylor was placed on leave that the cancellation of the memorial service and the disciplinary action had nothing to do with one another.Hughes said the service was canceled to ensure that the Police Department had sufficient manpower to maintain a healthy law enforcement presence in the city. Hughes said a number of officers were also involved on the day of the memorial service with setting up for a Thursday open house at the Police Department. Working on two events at once while keeping enough officers on the street turned out to be a bit more problem-aticŽ than the department had expected, Hughes said.Public records show that the committee putting together the memorial ser-vice had cited a need for 25 or more employees to assistŽ at the event. The request to volunteer was sent May 3 to all staffŽ by Kathy Duke, the Police Departments critical sys-tems manager.The Police Department employs 61 people, includ-ing reserve and auxiliary officers, Hughes said.Employees were notified of Taylors the suspension on the afternoon of May 9 at a general assembly of all staff,Ž Hughes said. Deputy Chief Rick Brown and Commanders Jamie Grant and Andrew Schneider made the announ cement.Grant, who has been with the police force since 1991, was named interim chief in Taylors absence.Cadle said Okaloosa County Sheriff Larry Ashley was incorrectŽ when he introduced Grant at a news conference earlier this week as Crestviews police chief. CHIEFFrom Page A1Currently, Crestview is the largest city in Florida that still utilizes a weak mayorŽ form of government. The majority of weak mayorŽ cities have fewer than 6,000 residents. Proponents of the change argue that a professional city manager is needed to run the day-to-day oper-ations of a city the size of Crestview.Council member Shan-non Hayes announced later in the meeting that he too would be holding town halls to speak to voters about the refer-endum questions.I plan on having one in June and at least one in July and maybe one in August,Ž Hayes said. Id like to make sure [the voters] are informed of this. Im in favor of it, but I want to tell them why Im in favor of it.ŽWhitten has previously held two town hall meetings and is planning another in June.

There was no place in the world the U.S. was better off after the Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry era. In fact, Secretary of State John Kerry (who applied James Taylor diplomacy) was so sadly inept that he could not break up a ketchup fight at a Heinz family picnic if he had to. Enter Donald J. Trump, who brought nations to the bargaining table that were previously running all over us. Last week he even brought home Josh Holt, an American kept in solitary confinement in Venezuela for two years. Trump surprised him at the airport when he landed. Josh saw Trump and thought, Cool, President Hillary Clinton sent that guy from The Apprentice to welcome me.Ž Surprising many, Trump even put a woman in charge of the CIA. The thought was that we have tried every form of punishment from black sitesŽ to waterboarding to break our enemies. Now, with a woman in charge, we can try the silent treatment. The next Holy Grail for our unlikely world diplomat is North Korea. It is run by 34-year-old ruthless dictator intern/trainee turned Dear LeaderŽ Kim Jung-Un. Un was thrown into power by his father right before he died. Kim Jung-il must have seen ruthlessness early in the young Un, passing over his two older brothers Kim Jung-Tito and Kim Jung-Jermain to succeed him. (Sorry for long-time readers; that joke never gets old.) Trump calculates that this young leader, with a bad haircut on par with his own, is a man he can do business with. Un is a billionaire who enjoys cognac and the NBA, snorts cocaine off the rear-ends of his young harem of women, and pops Cialis like mints. Trump reasons: Is there a 34-yearold in the world who has more to lose by dying in a nuclear holocaust than this Un? For millennials in America, the existential threat of a nuclear war falls on like, like, really, literally, likeŽ deaf ears. If the mushroom cloud comes, this poorly educated and self-absorbed generation would run outdoors for the first time in months and try to take a selfie with the cloud in the background. We know North Korea has nukes on missiles that can reach California and Washington State and that, at some point in the future, they will have some that can reach some of our good states, the ones with SEC football teams. We must act before then. These talks were almost derailed because of comments from Ambassador John Bolton. The hawkish Bolton, whose mustache is loaned out on weekends to Civil War re-enactors, is playing bad cop to Trumps crazy cop. As a libertarian, the view I have stated for years now is just to let these isolated military dopes alone. They pin medals on their chests for feats worth less than a Cub Scout merit badge and have technology from a 1980s Radio Shack. Let them keep monkeying around with nuclear weapons in their countries the size of Maine while we sit back and just let Darwinism take its course. What is bringing North Korea to the table is not nukes. It is, as it always is, economics, and the fact that communism always ends up starving its citizens. Socialism and communism, like Democrat politics in America, only work for those in charge of them. And Trumps new frenemy,Ž Chinese leader Xi Jinping, does not want regime change, which would cause tens of millions of North Korean refugees to stream into China. Remember the first law of illegal immigration: America is the only jerk country that wants to control whom we let in „ never other countries. The reality is, Kim JungUn is scared of Trump. Since Trump took office, North Korean dry cleaners have made customers pay in advance. If Trumps shrewd peace plan works, it will kill the left. Nancy Pelosi would rather have all-out nuclear war than see Trump get a Nobel Peace Prize by making the world safer. And the media reacts predictably. Fox News is encouraging his accomplishments in talking to communist North Korea. MSNBC and CNN are covering it as the latest twist in Trump colluding with Russia. Should Trump meet with North Korea, it is the mainstream medias sincere hope that Kim Jung-Un is cooperating with Robert Mueller and is wearing a wire.

Write a letter to the editor.The o and Un of North Korean diplomacyA couple of million Americans will be watching closely as the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors compete for the 2018 NBA championship. LeBron James, a 6-foot-8, 250-pound man who plays for the Cavaliers, is the King James Version of basketball. I was recently in Cleveland, Ohio, while the Indiana Pacers were in town. Interestingly, the Pacers were staying in my hotel and I saw them often on the elevator or the hotel lobby. The evening I was there, I went down to the lobby in search of a snack and then headed back to the elevator when two men walked across the lobby area briskly and entered into the elevator first. I followed them on and was a bit awestruck that one guy with a baseball cap was large. He was maybe 6-foot-8 or 6-foot-9 and very stocky. I never mean to stare but this man looked familiar. He never looked at me to engage but kept his eyes on the elevator. By the time they got off the elevator I knew I was riding with the king of basketball „ LeBron James. Two weeks later I was back in Cleveland and had the opportunity to watch James and the Cavaliers play the Boston Celtics in the third game of their series. He scored 27 points and had 12 assists, just another nights work for James. While NBA television viewership doesnt sound big, the NBA reached a television deal with ESPN and Turner Sports for 24 billion dollars over a nine-year stretch in October of 2014. Thus, all NBA players earn very nice paychecks but especially King James. Forbes says James earned $86 million in 2017, including a $31.2 million salary and a whopping $55 million in product endorsements. James penned one Nike endorsement deal for $90 million dollars while he was still in high school. He has a net worth of $400 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. His salary for 2018 is $33,285,709. His total earnings for 2018 are reported to be about 85.3 million dollars. His salary is actually the second highest behind Stephen Curry who reportedly makes $34,682,550. This does not include Currys endorsement money. While LeBrons salary is mind boggling, his stats as a player are whopping numbers as well. He has averaged 27.5 points, 9.1 assists and 8.6 rebounds every game in 2018. For his entire 15-year NBA career, he has averaged 27.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 7.2 assists every game. So far during the NBA 2018 finals he has scored over 40 points seven times putting him hot on the heels of Jerry West who scored over 40 points eight times in the NBA playoffs in 1965 when he was 26 years old. I predict he gets over 40 at least twice in the Golden State series and expands his kingdoms reign. Glenn Mollette is an American syndicated columnist and author. Whats your view?

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, June 2, 2018 A7 FAITHWhy do some people not tell the truth? Why do some people do things behind anothers back? Why do some people try to manipulate friends or acquaintances to say or do things they normally wouldnt? Sometimes it is because they are trying to cover their tracks and not get caught or blamed for something they did wrong. Skew the facts. Deflect the suspicion onto someone else. Sometimes they want to make someone else look bad in a fit of jealousy or rage. Sometimes it is because they want to gain something for their own selfish pleasure or advancement. I go back to my question. Why? Its because we live in a broken world. Since the beginning of humanity humans have always thought they knew better than God. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were not satisfied with what God provided, so they disobeyed in order to get more. God set down expectations for how God wants humanity to live. Far too many thought they knew better and fell hard from grace. God continuously pursued humanity, doing his best to have people freely return to him and live in his grace. Yet, his attempts fell on mostly deaf ears. Yes, God created a perfect world for us. And we broke it. And when things dont go right? When tragedies strike, when plans dont go our way, when murder and injustice and hatred all rear their ugly heads … who gets blamed? God! Friends, it is not Gods fault!! It is ours. We are the ones who dont tell the truth; who manipulate persons and circumstances; who sneak around in the darkness doing unspeakable things; who seek pleasures at the expense of others. God does not force anyone to do those things. People freely choose to do them. And such choices, I am sure, break Gods heart. But God does not … and has not … given up his pursuit of humanity. God came in Jesus Christ to show us how to live, act, and react. God comes in the presence of his Holy Spirit to give us wisdom and courage to live as he desires. Just as God has not given up on any of us, dontgive up onhim. If you will live by the royal law,Ž you will find what God desires. The royal law says, Love your neighbor as yourself.Ž If we all did this, imagine what this world would be like. The Rev.

The school closed its doors in 1969, after Okaloosa County schools were desegregated.Despite the threat of thun-derstorms and the first named storm of the season bearing down on Northwest Florida, the bad weather held off for the duration of the daytime May Day festivities. The festivities began with a parade that ran along Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and McClelland Street, ending up at the Carver-Hill Museum and Allen Park. The dedication ceremony and announcement of the May Day court was held on a stage set up on the museum grounds. This years May Day Queen was Sharonnia Larkins, a retired Army veteran and Crestview resident.Thank God for change,Ž Larkins said in her accep-tance speech. We have come a mighty long way, but we still have a long way to go.ŽThe May Day festival in Crestview blends a celebration of the citys African-American history with traditional Euro-pean May Day activities like singing, dancing and wrap-ping the maypole. May Day is traditionally celebrated May 1 in other places.For the remainder of the afternoon, the festivities included live music, food, vendors and games. Some of the games included tournaments that festivalgoers could sign up to participate in, including a three-onthree basketball tournament at neighboring Allen Park.Many of the parade floats were put together by alumni classes from Carver-Hill. The class of 1968, one of the final upper classes to attend Carver-Hill School, won first place for best decorated float.If you were at the event last night, you got a good trip back into the 1960s, because that class of 1968 did an awesome job of putting that program (together),Ž Carver-Hill Memorial and Historical Soci-ety President David Wheeler said, referring to the Fellow-ship Night event held Friday evening.Rain holds o for May Day FestivalLive music, games and a parade were all part of the 42nd annual May Day Festival in Crestview.
