It also allows for raising funds without having a physical fundraiser."The meetings are 6-8 p.m. the fourth Monday of each month at Crosspoint Church, 2250 P J Adams Parkway, Crestview. There are sometimes guest speakers who present useful information or provide veterans services.Foundation meetings started with three to five veterans in 2017. They have grown to 10 to 15 veterans and their families.Winkler said she and her husband, Richard, began the meetings after their son, Drew, died May 30, 2016 by PTSD-related suicide. His last message, posted via Facebook, referenced himself as one of the22 veterans a day lost to suicide."We quickly realized there were no peer group meeting opportunities in Crestview, Fla. for veterans. We started the meetings with nothing but faith and less than $500 in the bank. We jumped off the bridge in faith that this was what we were supposed to do."We have heard over and over from veterans that when they left the military they felt completely alone with no support system. We provide veterans the oppor-tunity to help themselves by connecting with and helping other veterans. We also, by allowing the veterans to bring family members if they choose, are able to provide support to the family members of veterans," Rebecca Winkler said.Veterans and their family members may contact the foundation via Facebook PTSD-a ected family helps veteransBy Alicia Adams 315-4443 | @aliciaNWFDN email@example.comCRESTVIEW Â„ Gill Powell Sr., estab-lished what is now called Powell, Powell & Powell Attorneys at Law in 1951. The Crestview-based firm has seen three generations of attorneys with all three of his children practicing together, and now some of his grandchildren.His son, Gill Powell Jr., never expected that all three of his children would follow in his footsteps and become attorneys, but they did just that. His daughter, Lacey Powell Clark, has worked for the family firm since she was a teen. Lacey started at the firm answering phones when she attended Crestview High School. She said her father and grandfather never pressured her into studying law, but it just felt natural. ÂItÂs been wonderful working with my dad. IÂm so incred-ibly blessed, and wouldnÂt want to work for anyone else,ÂŽ Lacey said. Gill Jr.Âs other daughter, Ginny, also works for the firm, and his son Beau is an attorney in Milton.ÂItÂs been wonderful working with them and theyÂre all excellent law-yers,ÂŽ Gill said.

I found myself glued to them. As I watched I was amazed, even awed. Then I got a little sad. Were the videos of a somber nature? Not at all. In fact they were rather uplifting. What should have been bitter enemies, beastly bullies, antagonistic adversaries were playing together. Yes, animals that should have been terrified of one another were actually playing, grooming, and nurturing one another. A wild fox and a hunting dog playing keep-away with a stick. An owl and a cat playing tag with one another. A monkey petting a cat. A parakeet preening the face of a cat. A deer and a dog playing chase and hugging one another. Creatures who should have been afraid of one another, or being hunted by another, or being destroyed by another were together in harmony. Part of me said, ÂOh! How cute!ÂŽ Another part of me said, ÂOh! How sad that far too many people cannot do as these animals have done.ÂŽ I think it would be absolutely fantastic if we Â„ all of usÂ„ would set aside our petty differences and recognize the fact that each one of us is a child of God. Skin color, style of dress, political leaning, religious preference, gender orientation, social status, all tend to cloud peopleÂs vision. Prejudices get formed. Divisions split us. Walls get erected. Many have lost sight that every person has been created in the image of God. When we focus our attention on the fact that everything and everyone in this creation has been created by God and for GodÂs pleasure, we will come to realize that our petty differences are divisions created by the evil in this world. We will come to realize that those things that divide us are actually designed to keep us from thinking about God and nurturing our relationship with him. We will come to realize that the pursuit of earthly pleasures and ÂstuffÂŽ is designed to cause us to believe we are to care for ourselves and forget that God has said he would take care of us. Jesus said, ÂLove your enemies, do good to those who hate you, pray for those who persecute you.ÂŽ Will you do this? The Rev. Mark Broadhead is pastor at Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Crestview.FROM THE PULPITDonÂt let Âstu Â cause a divisionADVENTIST Crestview Seventh Day Adventist Church: 997 Texas Parkway, Crestview; 689-2092; http:// crestview22.adventistchurchconnect.org/ ASSEMBLY OF GOD Campton Assembly of God Church: 6924 Highway 85 N., Laurel Hill, FL 32567; 652-4581; www.facebook.com/pages/ Campton-Assembly-of-GodChurch/117434418274713 Golan Assembly of God: 6618 Highway 189 N, Baker; 537-8007; http://golanassemblyofgod.com Holt Assembly of God Church: 540 3rd Ave., Holt; 537-8351 Milligan Assembly of God Church: 5408 Highway 4, Baker; 537-4945; www.mag.church North Central Assembly of God: 158 Woodlawn Drive, Crestview; 689-0209 or 537-7115; http://102453.agchurches.org/ Oak Ridge Assembly of God Church: 5297 Shoffner Blvd., Crestview; 682-8811 Shady Grove Assembly of God: 1189 Shady Grove Road, Baker; 537-2774; http://shadygroveassembly.com/ Svea Assembly of God: 4638 Grimes Road, Laurel Hill; 8342784 Welcome Assembly of God: 6137 US Highway 393, Crestview; 682-1683 AFRICAN METHODIST EPISCOPAL Mount Zion AME Church: 502 McDonald St., Crestview; 3986985; www.facebook.com/ mountzionamecrestview BAPTIST Antioch Baptist Church: 4824 Antioch Road, Crestview; 682-4297; www.antiochbaptistcrestview.com/index.html Calvary Baptist Church: 612 E.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, June 16, 2018 A5investigation of the school district in March at the request of the grand jury after it met in February.Jurors were originally called to look at allegedly flawed School District operations, policies and procedures that included evidence of child abuse, sexual misconduct and cheating. They also saw evidence that in many cases faculty, staff and administrators turned a blind eye to much of what they saw.The grand jury was provided testimony concerning the suspicious closing of an investigation documenting physical abuse by one special education teacher.Jurors were made aware of the arrests of four school officials, including one teacher charged with child abuse and three others, including and dis-trictÂs former assistant superintendent of human resources, for failing to report child abuse.The grand jury issued a harshly worded report in February that placed much of the blame for the districtÂs missteps on School Superintendent Mary Beth Jackson.Jackson, the grand jury said, had failed to fulfill her obligations as both a superintendent and an elected official.It said it was JacksonÂs duty to see that employ-ees were properly trained and supervised, and made aware of their obligation to report child abuse. It called upon her to revise and enforce district poli-cies and procedures.Most seriously, it questioned Âinconsistent statementsÂŽ Jackson made in denying any knowledge in the disappearance of the investigative report of the special ed teacher.The grand jury called upon the State AttorneyÂs Office to look specifically at Jackson to see if evi-dence existed of criminal behavior. Eddins vowed to do so.Eddins said Wednesday that even though no more criminal charges are expected, he believes the investigation and the intense media coverage generated by the School District has served the public well, particularly vulnerable students.ÂI feel, as a result of the investigation and the attention brought to the issue by the media, the school children of Okaloosa County and the First Judicial Circuit are safer today than when this investigation started,ÂŽ Eddins said. ÂPeople are now better aware of issues related to child abuse than they were when we started.ÂŽ JURYFrom Page A1message for assistance or support until the organizationÂs website is complete.

ANOTHER VIEW Stark County (Ohio) Common Pleas Court Judge Frank Forchione can be counted on to do something interesting from the bench. Recently, Forchione despaired over how many defendants, particularly young men, who come into court have no knowledge of events such as D-Day and American history in general. In this latest instance, Forchione noted to three defendants that Americans who fought and died on D-Day were the same ages as they. As part of their sentences, he ordered the defendants Â„ two who stole from a store, and one who was drunk while carrying a gun Â„ to read a book, ÂD-Day: June 6, 1944: The Climactic Battle of World War II,ÂŽ and to submit written reports. In 2015, he ordered the same of a man who stole from a local VFW. There was a time when judges could offer such defendants a choice of jail or the military. But todayÂs military is too sophisticated and specialized and has no time to save people from themselves. No one should be surprised that Americans have so little knowledge about our own history, except for those things we like to fight about. Our knowledge gap is as quintessentially American as a cowboy movie. Last July 4, when NPR tweeted out The Declaration of Independence, a number of people didnÂt recognize it and practically stormed the gates, furiously accusing the outlet of being seditious and un-American. Last week, even the president embarrassed himself by suggesting to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that Canada burned the White House during the War of 1812. It was the British. If you donÂt believe it, just ask them. What Canada did do however, is fight and die at our side on D-Day, and smuggle Americans out of Iran during the Islamic Revolution of 1978. If we expect our presidents to know a little more about history than the average citizen, itÂs because as president youÂre a literal, living, breathing, chapter of American history. But history isnÂt just a marker, itÂs also a mirror. It shows us the truth of who we are, not as we might wish to see ourselves, and no amount of spin or distortion can change it. That alone is worth our knowing it. But you canÂt preserve, protect and defend what you donÂt know. To ignore or not care about the history of the country in which you live endangers it. A 2014 report published by the National Assessment of Educational Progress found that only 18 percent of American high school students were proficient in history. A previous study found that less than 20 percent of adults could identify the Emancipation Proclamation in a multiple-choice question. In another, half of the respondents placed the Civil War and the War of 1812 ahead of the American Revolution on a timeline. It isnÂt possible for us to master all of history, however. If truth be told, a lot of us couldnÂt pass a U.S. naturalization test. We are where we are because of the heroism exhibited on D-Day and other crucial events like it. Because Âpast is prologue,ÂŽ our story is a seamless cloth, not a patchwork of luck and happenstance. As the historian David McCullough puts it: ÂWe are all part of a larger stream of events, past, present and future. We are the beneficiaries of those who went before us, who built the cathedrals, who braved the unknown, who gave us their time and service and who kept faith in the possibilities of the mind and the human spirit.ÂŽ We benefit Â„ and sometimes suffer Â„ because of actions and decisions of the past, which is the essence of history and the message Forchione is trying to get across. It remains to be seen if he succeeds.History a marker, and a mirror C h a r i t a G o s h a y Charita GoshayÂItÂs not tyranny we desire; itÂs a just, limited, federal government.ÂŽ Alexander HamiltonThe play Hamilton! finally found its way to the South, and I finally found a way to see it without selling my house for ticket money. And I was transported! Â„ albeit by Uber Â„ to the show. The play itself was surprisingly fair.I see now why the play captured more Tonys in New York than Rudy Giuliani did when he went after the Mafia in the 1980s. Aside from cost (I am an accomplished skinflint), I did not see Hamilton! in New York because I presumed it to be another preachy, liberal interpretation of history. That belief was reinforced when the cast stopped, lectured and bullied V.P.-elect Mike Pence when he attended. It must have been the worst night in a theater for a Republican since Abraham Lincoln. I remember thinking: ÂWow, Mike Pence Â„ it is one thing to get bullied by jocks, but it must feel helpless to have to sit there and be bullied by theater folk.ÂŽ Just imagine what Trump would face from the cast of Hairspray! I imagined liberals booing the pivotal Revolutionary War victory scene at Yorktown. I also thought if they had their way, the spinoff of Hamilton! would be Booth! Yet the conservative, minimal government tenets of Alexander Hamilton and our Founders could not be misinterpreted or masked with modern-day liberal spin. Lost or not on liberal Broadway was that Hamilton espoused limited government and wrote most of the Federalist Papers. The modern-day Federalist Society is a group of libertarian/conservatives who advocate limited government. Further lost on the left is just how much the lauded Alexander Hamilton was like Donald J. Trump. The play was written and succeeded well before Trump came onto the political stage. In many ways, it predicted his rise. Hamilton! centers around the brash and impulsive Hamilton and his polar opposite, spineless, cautious and obsequious weasel Aaron Burr (or Jeb!). Hamilton famously says during one of his arguments with Burr, ÂBurr, IÂd rather be divisive than indecisive. Drop the niceties.ÂŽ Sound familiar? The advice to Hamilton could also apply to Trump: ÂSmile more, talk less.ÂŽ Most of our Founding Founders were impulsive, bright, ADD womanizing scoundrels to varying degrees, like Trump. HamiltonÂs political career was cut short because he was extorted over an affair. He paid the lady off, but she did not stay quiet as agreed when opposing political operatives used her as a political pawn to hurt Hamilton. ItÂs just like the Stormy Daniels mess and her Â15 minutes of fame.ÂŽ Unfortunately for Trump, when her average ÂmovieÂŽ is five minutes long, Stormy doesnÂt know her Â15 minutesÂŽ are up. In HamiltonÂs time, people would spread their scandalous stories in the newspapers. Today, Stormy Daniels just goes on The View, which was a change for her; she is not used to being watched by a million people, all women. Both Hamilton and Trump were brash, pro-business New Yorkers. While Hamilton wrote the more eloquent Federalist Papers, anonymously advancing his opinions around the normal political process, Trump Tweets. Hamilton was more self-promotional than a Party loyalist, but he was also plagued by resentment and undermined by leaks. Hamilton, like Trump, had a gift for gab and was witty, theatrical and coveted the stage. Both cut through convention to get the essence of issues; they were not afraid to ruffle feathers to get to the right answer. Clearly both were pro-gun. Hamilton actually died in a duel with his nemesis Burr. Trump said he could Âstand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and not lose any voters.ÂŽ Hamilton actually did. While breaking us away from England, Hamilton cloaked the U.S. presidency in immense power. Our president can veto legislation and pardon (maybe himself); he appoints judicial, regulatory and cabinet members. He is Commander-inChief of our military. Great Britain has evolved into a democracy disguised as a monarchy, while America is essentially a monarchy masquerading as a democracy. America began with what our Founders described as Protestant values. The nation has changed. Recently there was not a single Protestant on the Supreme Court. In fact, we WASPs are such a dying breed, with our country slowly being taken from us, that we will soon be able to apply for casino licenses. One thing I wish they would bring back from HamiltonÂs time: our politicians shooting each other in duels. That might cull the herd by half.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, June 16, 2018 A9By Brian Hughes Special to the News BulletinLAUREL HILL Â„ After its organizers raised more than $150, Laurel HillÂs second Little Free Library is nearing completion and, upon City Council approval, will join the first one in front of City Hall. The new one is aimed at a more select clientele, however.ItÂs for the communityÂs younger readers.ÂThe first one has been so successful we wanted to put one up for children,ÂŽ said resident Tracy Curenton. She and her neighbor, Janet Twitty, are the driving forces behind bringing the libraries to Okaloosa CountyÂs northernmost municipality.Curenton has seen the success of Little Free Libraries for adults and children respectively in her capacity as president of the North Okaloosa Historical Association, which erected two such libraries Â„ one for adults, one for kids Â„ at the Baker Block Museum.As a former Laurel Hill School librarian, Twitty, too, shares a love of books and reading. Both women ÂprimedÂŽ the first Little Free Library with books from their own collections.After the first library box was erected in front of Laurel Hill City Hall last fall, the women received overwhelmingly positive feedback from residents who like the service, from which they can borrow books at no cost at any time.ÂWe have had people tell us they were going to get a movie from the Red Box (DVD rental machine at the townÂs Tom Thumb store) but decided they would rather read a book so they went down the street to the Little Free Library,ÂŽ Curenton said. ÂThatÂs kinda cool.ÂŽLike Little Free Librar-ies all over the world, if a borrower likes the book, he or she is free to keep it, or they can return it, or replace it with a book of their own. The current box is stuffed with books of all genres and for read-ers of all ages.Realizing a second library box devoted to childrenÂs books was needed, the organizers held a book sale during the April 28 Laurel Hill Arts and Heritage Festival, which raised more than $150.The money mostly went to purchasing materials to construct the second library box, a task Curenton turned over to her brother, Mark Curenton, the fam-ilyÂs master woodworker and a regional historian. Like he did the first library, Mark is constructing the second library voluntarily.ÂThe main case is all done now,ÂŽ Mark Curenton said from his Apalachicola backyard workshop. ÂAll that remains is to build the door, the roof and the braces that go on the support post. IÂve got the braces partially built.ÂŽThe familyÂs Laurel Hill roots go back seven gen-erations Â„ even before there was a Laurel Hill, in fact Â„ and service to their community runs in the siblingsÂ blood, including that of their older brother, Leon Curenton Jr., who lives in Crestview and helped man the book sale booth at the April festival.Twitty and Curenton hope to have the chil-drenÂs Little Free Library erected and stocked by the end of June.Little Free Library for little readers coming to Laurel HillWhile visiting friends from church in Laurel Hill, Crestview resident Jakeem Peoples selects a book from the townÂs Little Free Library.
