Stephen and his wife, Michelle, are missionar-ies in Guatemala.Kim, Rick and Stephen answered the following questions.When you first learned your son was moving to Guatemala, how did you react?KIM: At first, I didnÂt want him to go because it is so far away. As his mom, I wished he lived closer, but I know God has called Stephen and Michelle to the mission field.RICK: Stephen was called by God to the mission field back in 2014. He went on an 11-month mission trip called "The World Race" that took him to several countries in Africa, Southeast Asia, and Central America, including Guatemala. I remember being apprehensive, and prayed at first only for his safety, but one day stopped in mid-prayer. If I wanted him just to "stay safe," I should have tried to talk him out of going in the first place ... Shortly after (the World Race and a) few months of training, he returned to Antigua, Gua-temala, high in the mountains just west of Guatemala City. He has been there ever since.How did you first hear about the Guatemala volcano?KIM: We were talking with Stephen and Michelle on FaceTime right as the volcano was erupting! They were driv-ing, held up the phone, turned the camera around, and their windshield was trying in vain to wipe away the volcanic ash.RICK: Volcan de Fuego ("Volcano of Fire") is about 10 miles west of where Stephen and Michelle live ... [They] were headed home due to respiratory and other concerns associated with the volcanic ash, but were not in any immediate danger otherwise.

Born 7 January 1965 to the late Charles and Vera Fontaine. Rob (Bobby) was the beloved husband of Linda Fontaine and loving father of Amber and Jenna (Nelson), and father-in-law to our new son Eric Nelson. He was also a cherished step father to Nicholai (deceased) and Melisa. He had one brother Frank who is married to Kim, share four children. He was a devoted man with old fashion values who served his country from 1987 until 1999 in the U.S. Air Force and continued service to his country through his employment as a contractor with NASA, Lockheed Martin and tours to Afghanistan and the UAE. A generous man loved by all who met him and will be sorely missed by everyone. Memorial Service was held Thursday 21 June.ROBERT ALLAN FONTAINE 1965 2018How befitting for our beloved Stan, Dad, Papa, Poppy and Grand Poppy to move on to his Heavenly Father on FathersÂ Day. We just hope heaven is ready is for him!! Walter Stanley Jones Sr. of Roanoke, Va., was born in Bassett, Va., on June 16, 1935, and passed away on Sunday, June 17, 2018. The world had no idea what it was in for. He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Janie Jones; brothers, Ed and William Jones; and sisters, Betty Jane Barrow and Alice Byrd (and his gallbladder). Stan served the Military Police in the United States Army and retired from Red Star Express Lines. He owned many small hobby businesses and served too many civic organizations to list, including Knights of Columbus and American Legion. Stan enjoyed working on his farm with his brother, Pat, telling tall tales with his Auburn and Back Creek buddies, and days on the course with his golfing pals. As if six children were not enough, Stan participated in many rotations of Big Brothers and Sisters of Cayuga County. As a coach and father figure to any and all, he willingly shared his worldly and often times silly advice and guidance. There were no strangers in StanÂs world, living life with a huge heart.... except for you-you know who you are :). He could find humor in anything and was rarely found without a smile on his face. If you were lucky enough to get the seat next to him, you were in for a good time. It was important for Stan to ensure peace in his family and instilled a sibling bond in his children that will stand the test of time. He will be missed beyond measure by so many! Sadly, Stan leaves behind his loving wife of 60 years, Mary Lou; their children Cindy (Koos) Jager, Virginia (Tenser) Mallette, Susan (Knox) Mallette, Amy (Peter) Balzer, Casey (Jami) Jones, and Stacie (Chris) Gissendanner; 17 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; two brothers, Mike (Margaret) and Pat (Joanie) Jones; so many nieces and nephews; and very dear friends, Beverley Hall and Gaye Sigmon. The family wishes to thank cousin, Cathy Jones, for her loving support and Good Samaritan Hospice for their spiritual guidance in the final days. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the Multiple Sclerosis Society, www.nationalmssociety.org; or Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund www. jdrf.org. A family celebration of StanÂs life will be scheduled in Florida at a later date. Everyone has a 'Stan' story, so PLEASE share them on Mary Lou's Facebook page.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, June 23, 2018 A3 FAITHThe other day I was waiting at a car dealership for them to finish a minor repair. As I sat in the waiting area I noticed a young man and woman with a relatively new baby. They were talking with a sales representative. I couldnÂt tell how far along in the negotiation process they were, but they seemed fairly well engaged. After I enjoyed a small snack and a cup of coffee, I noticed this couple walking toward the door. Just outside the door was a beautiful white minivan. The huge smile on the young motherÂs face told me they had just sealed the deal and purchased the vehicle. As I watched, the smile never faded. Her husband got into the driverÂs seat. The baby was secured in the back of the vehicle. Mom got into the passenger seat. As they got ready to drive away, there were smiles all around and off they went. I was struck by the look of utter joy on the face of that young mother. It was like she had received a pearl of great price. Excitement as well as contentment seemed to flow from her. That is the look I sometimes see on peopleÂs faces when they come to realize they are truly loved by God. It is the look when our Lord enters their hearts and they realize all their past mistakes have been forgiven by God. It is the look of knowing you have received exactly what you needed all along and finally came to realize it. Has that smile come across your face Â„ the smile that demonstrates you know you are loved by God, that the Lord has entered your heart, that you know your past mistakes are forgiven? If it has, you know to what I am referring. If it hasnÂt, perhaps now is the time to explore what itÂs all about. Because what it comes down to is recognizing your true worth in the eyes of God. And that, my friend, is a gift really worth smiling about. The Rev.

** A4 Saturday, June 23, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin OPINION ANOTHER VIEW News stories from all over the country find their way to our email accounts or facebook pages and it seems like there is a double standard that is taking over, whereby we have to be mindful of not offending one group of people, while we seemingly offend another group. It is well documented that this country was colonized by people who among other things, sought the right to practice their religion without the risk of persecution.It is evident just what a stronghold religion has in this country, when you consider just how many places of worship there are in a standard city, let alone here in the ÂSouthÂ. So, it seemed to create quite the buzz when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of a baker who refused to create a wedding cake for two men who were to marry. A similar case in a different city last year resulted in the two women who ordered a wedding cake being successful in their bid to sue for discrimination. The baker in that case admitted it was due to his religious beliefs that he did not wish to provide the cake for the commitment ceremony. While no one should be discriminated against for any reason, and the rights of the LGBT are to be upheld, where does that leave people who live their lives according to their religious beliefs and practices? Tolerance regarding nonwestern religions has been a hot topic also, as we should not judge those who practice a specific religion by the actions of a small break-off group or radicalized faction.Fear and hatred breed contempt, as was evident after 9/11 when terrorists splinter cells, claiming to act under the guise of the Muslin faith, carried out atrocities, while those who were born into this faith and call the USA home, could not help but be tarnished.It was an extremely difficult time for thousands of people, and while that particular topic is off the radar for most people, it continues to be an issue for many. Religious intolerance seems to work against the grain of our basic society, yet we tolerate it, if it suits the majority opinion of the day.Without taking into consideration the feelings and basic human rights of each person as an individual we may find ourselves guilty of discrimination of a higher level.Take God out of the equation, and we may see a change of sorts to the basic structure of our society, or we may not. It all depends on the conviction some have toward their faith, versus those who have little to none. What todayÂs generation needs to remember is that the world is made up of people from all different races, creeds, religious practices, etc. and has been since the dawn of mankind. Just because it is popular to support one group over another, does not make you an activist. It just makes you a human, with free will.

Join the discussion at facebook.com/crestview.bulletin or tweet @cnbulletin D r G l e n n M o l l e t t e Dr. Glenn MolletteLots of outrage has been seen and heard around America over the treatment of families illegally entering the United States. President Trump has signed an executive order to keep the families together. IÂm not sure where Americans want to keep these families who took a great risk to enter our country hoping to gain entrance quickly and illegally. It did not work out for them. I know quite a few people who live in our country who have moved here from Mexico, Myanmar and other parts of the world. They are working very hard and are very supportive of the laws of America. Breaking the law always has some penalty or repercussions. IÂm all for keeping border families together. I would never want to see children ripped away from a mother or father. Those crossing the border for the most part are very desperate people in search of a better place. Every day people fill out the necessary paper work, go through the proper channels and enter our country. Millions of them are now working a job that many Americans no longer want to work which is very sad for our country. However, itÂs good for those who want to work it seems. What do we do with these border families now? Do we keep them in full service hotels or house them at a resort property in Disney World? They have left third world countries where conditions apparently were not very good. How much can we be expected to do for people showing up demanding entrance to America? What would you do for people showing up at your front door demanding lodging and meals and even health care? ItÂs hard for most people when family shows up unannounced. I found in interesting watching the outcry of demonstrators and different media personalities. I have wondered where are the daily cries over how America treats our children and unborn children? Right now while I am writing this there will be about 3000 legalized abortions in America. Add that number times 365 days in our country. There were 652, 639 legalized abortions in 2014 according for the Center for Disease Control. Seven thousand children are abandoned each year in the United States. China is said to have over twenty million orphans. How many babies and children spend their first five years in daycare and then are raised essentially by the school? ItÂs a tough day for AmericaÂs families who are trying to financially survive. However, money, things and attainments never take the place of time with children and families. ItÂs easy to see this looking back. IÂm glad there are Americans who have verbalized their pain concerning the importance of children and parents being together. ItÂs important. Maybe there will be some outrage down the road on the state of AmericaÂs families who enjoy the privileges daily afforded to our families but for different reasons donÂt treat their children very well.

Write a letter to the editor.Border pain and our children B a r b a r a D a l e Barbara DaleCanada has not yet announced building a wall on the nationÂs southern border, but at this point, such a step would not be surprising. Relations between the two nations have been deteriorating rapidly. In hindsight, signs of trouble appeared at the start of the current administration in Washington. President Donald Trump ignored the tradition of visiting Canada early and instead went to Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is currently pursuing a controversial and undeniably bloody intervention in Yemen. The Saudi government today pursues reform but remains relatively repressive. In stark contrast, President Barack Obama, respecting tradition, made Canada his first foreign destination. On February 19, 2009, he and Prime Minister Stephen Harper met and found common environmental ground. They avoided open clash on the "Buy American" provision of the U.S. economic stimulus plan. President John F. Kennedy eloquently summed up the relationship in an address to the Parliament of Canada in early 1961, noting, "Geography has made us neighbors, history has made us friends, economics has made us partners, and necessity has made us allies." KennedyÂs national security adviser McGeorge Bundy said that the British represent "Someone to talk to" and the same has been true of Canadians. Regional trade agreements further strengthen CanadaU.S. ties. The 1994 NAFTA agreement, now under attack, lowered trade barriers between Mexico and the rest of North American. An essential predecessor was the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement of 1988, in turn facilitated by the successful Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations. CanadaÂs government professionals traditionally foster cooperation with Britain and the U.S. on military security and wider diplomatic as well as economic matters, and are numerous among the professionals who staff the United Nations, NATO and the other substantial and influential intergovernmental organizations. Such cooperation in promotion of international community has deep roots reaching back to the earliest phase of World War II. During that desperate time, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill met for their first summit on naval warships off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. The meeting occurred in August 1941, several months before the attack on Pearl Harbor brought America directly into the war. The principal result was the Atlantic Charter, a dramatic declaration of Allied strategy and goals, including the postwar period. Reflecting extraordinary determination and optimism during the bleakest phase of the global struggle, FDR and Churchill explicitly proposed the United Nations. Throughout the war, a series of conferences took place to hammer out the details of the new world organization.Canada: Lynchpin ally may reject U.S. Arthur Cyr

What do you do there? STEPHEN: My wife and I both felt called to come to Guatemala when we were still single. (They met in 2016 and got married in Antigua in January 2018.) We both originally were sent through an organi-zation called Adventures in Missions. We recently transitioned into a staff position with an international church plant called Shoreline City Antigua. Their main campus is in Dallas, Texas. We work with their church plant in Guatemala, Shoreline City Antigua. It launched officially about 15 months ago.We lead worship for the church, as well as are heading up the church's relief efforts in response to the eruption.How much danger were you and the people you work with/assist in when the vol-cano erupted? How has it affected your day-to-day life there?STEPHEN: The volcano erupted Sunday around noon. We were finishing our Sunday service in Antigua when ash and debris began to fall on the town for about an hour. We drove home through the ash fall thinking it was a bigger eruption than normal. (Fuego erupts often, but not at this magnitude.) We found out the next day that areas west of the volcano were hit hard and covered heavily from the pyroclastic flow (this is the fast moving mixture of rock, gas, and lava with scorching tem-peratures close to the eruption). Antigua is ... still susceptible to more ash from further eruptions. Some major roads near the affected areas were closed for safety concerns as damage is still being assessed and rescue efforts continue.What's the top priority for yourself and the mission organization you work for now? STEPHEN: Over the next few weeks, we will be contacting disaster relief groups, as well as various other ministries and organizations, to see how we can best allocate any disaster relief funds we have collected. Shoreline City Dallas has set us up for people to give online toward our volcano relief fund.

COUPLEFrom Page A1"I'm really looking for-ward to getting to meet the guys at the barber academy over there," Paulsen said. "I'll be spending about four days at a barber school that they created. They use the Reuzel pomade that we use here, and they do the old style classic hair cuts, you know, the pompadours and flat tops."So they've got their own school out there. So I'll be attending that and just being able to refine my craft and get to watch these guys who are really good in the barbering industry do what they do best," he said. "Thank you from me to American Salon, Reuzel Pomade and Brenton Parry."Paulsen has been at Hub City Barbers since the busi-ness opened its doors Dec. 11, 2017 at 211 Main St. N.HCB owner Brenton Parry said a professional colleague recommended Paulsen as a potential employee.Parry grew his hair out, pretended to be a tourist and went to Paulsen for a hair cut."I sat in his chair and let him cut my hair and made sure he did a good job and the attention to detail was there. The reason why I went to check him out instead of the other two guys was the type of haircuts he does are the rock and roll style haircuts we specialize in," Parry said.His professionalism and demeanor, and the work he did on Parry's hair sealed the deal."His haircuts are exactly what I needed in the shop Â„ top notch," Parry said.

They reminded us that we are cared forÂ„we are loved, and it gave us something to hold on to."And it planted new memories in our mind, because of what had hap-pened during the war and what...was so traumatic that the shoebox became an opportunity to plant new memories in our lives."The items themselves had lasting value for Nsengimana."One of my favorite items was a hair comb that I kept for the next three years Âƒ I would take it everywhere I went for the next three years. That's how special the items were." After Nsengimana and his siblings survived their experiences, two came to the U.S. He and his wife are Minnesota residents and his brother lives in Wisconsin. His sister lives in Rwanda with her family, including two sons."I'm a very blessed uncle and Iget a chance to seethem every time I go back," he said. As an OCCspokesper-son, he has met other shoebox recipients as well."It is so encouraging to see all of us shoebox recipients coming out and sharing a very unique story of how that shoe-box made a difference in our lives, made an impact (and) launched a process in our lives of hope and love," Nsengimana said.Since the OCCministry started in 1993, volunteers have packed over 157 million shoeboxes and distributed them all over the world.

We had cookers and vendors from all over Northwest Florida and South Alabama, as well as a variety of family entertainment on the main stage. It was a smokinÂ success.Â€In May we had the honor and privilege to award two $1,000 scholarships to seniors from Crestview High School and Baker School as recipients of the Foy Shaw Memorial Scholarship. Mr. Foy Shaw was one of the founding fathers of the Crest-view Chamber of Commerce and these awards were given on his behalf by his son and longtime member, Craig Shaw. These awards were funded entirely by the generous donations made by our members, including a large donation from Hancock Bank.Â€In June we added a new employee to the team. We welcomed Mr. Tim Bryant as our office manager and are looking forward to meeting the needs of our members and our community with him by our side!These are just a few of the highlights from a very suc-cessful year.

[SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN] Christie Cadenhead stands at chamber podium for the last time as its chairman. [SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN] By Heather Osbourne 315-4440 | @heatheronwfdn email@example.com Summertime for college students means time to recu-perate from all-nighters and stressful exams, unwinding poolside with friends or binge-watching their favorite shows.Sophomore Theresa McKone is not one of them.Although she lives where emerald green water meet white sand beaches, McKone chooses to spend each of her college breaks working full-time as a manager at McDonald's in Bluewater Bay."I've been working at McDonald's since I was 14," said McKone, who attends the University of Mississippi. "I found out that McDonald's offers a scholarship through the company telling us about it. I applied last summer for the upcoming school year and received a scholarship." Many fast-food chains like McDonald's, Chick-fil-A, Taco Bell, Burger King and KFC offer college scholarships to employees. Some even offer tuition assistance to the families of employees and even to the public.McDonald's announced June 1 that crew members could now earn $2,500 in tuition assistance, up from $700 last year. Managers can earn $3,000, up from $1,500.Joann Wickham, human resource manager for Costa Enterprises Â„ which owns 20 Northwest Florida McDon-ald's Â„ said employees qualify for scholarships after only three months of employment."To offer our team members something like this, to help them accomplish their academic goals, is why we're all here," Wickham said. "This money comes directly from the McDonald's Corporation."In Milton, Savina Walters is another student taking advantage of a fast-food scholarship. Walters, who is studying to be a dental hygienist at Pensacola State College, said she began work-ing at Burger King when she was 16 years old."I was so scared when I first started because you always hear of fast-food horror sto-ries," Walters said. "I ended up really enjoying the job. It made me really happy." Walters, who earns $1,000 each year in tuition assis-tance, said she was surprised when she applied for the scholarship and heard back right away that she was accepted."I was so happy when I was accepted because, here I was working at this job that I really like, and now I get a scholarship for it," Walters said. "I want people to know that the fast-food industry may seem really scary, but if you stick with it your com-pany will help you."Burger King, according to Amanda Israel, executive director of the scholarship foundation, gives away many scholarships each year in honor of the founder's pas-sion for education."It was established in 2000 as a way of investing in deserving students in our community," Israel said. "The founder went to Cornell University and realized rather quickly that the cost would be overwhelming. He worked to get scholarships to pay for his education."Burger King offers a gen-eral award of $1,000, and the top-ranking employees in the United States receive $5,000. Children of employees can also apply for scholarships."Our scholarships have a multi-generational affect," Israel said.Daborah Davis, a junior at Pensacola Christian College, alsorecognized an opportu-nity in the fast-food industry and ran with it.Since the 2016 school year, Davis has racked up $20,000 in scholarships from Taco Bell, both through employee scholarships and those open to the public."People should really open their eyes to all of the schol-arships out there," Davis said. "There are some Taco Bell provides, and you don't even have to work there. Just put yourself out there and apply. "If you're passionate about what you do, you can get it."Happy Meals and scholarshipsJaqueline Wells (left) and Theresa McKone sit on a bench with a statue of the iconic Ronald McDonald at the Destin ofÂ“ ce of Costa Enterprises Restaurant Group, which owns 20 McDonaldÂs in Northwest Florida.

Part of the Billy Bowlegs event involved about 600 to 700 vessels anchored off Santa Rosa Sound near the Fort Walton Beach landing. Law enforcement and first responder actions included 692 vessel stops; 2,256 citi-zen contacts; 18 BUI arrests; 56 uniform boating citations issued; 112 written warnings issued; 13 fight and distur-bance interventions; 43 calls for service or public assist; four search and rescues; 19 medical responses; six med-ical transports; one medical transport to hospital; three drug possession charges; two intoxicated individuals secured at the drunk tent; one possession of alcohol under 21 years of age; and one boating accident.DESTIN Â„ Officer Corbin was on land patrol conduct-ing boating safety, resource protection and license compliance in the Destin area. The officer saw three individuals actively fishing with rods and reels off the Destin Beach. Officer Corbin waited in the parking lot until one of the individu-als returned to their vehicle. He made contact and asked to inspect the individualÂs required Eglin Beach permit. The individual did not have the permit. The other two individuals also returned to the vehicle. The officer explained that Eglin Beach closes at sunset. All three individuals did not have a saltwater fishing license. During the fisheries inspec-tion, Officer Corbin saw beer in the cooler. All three individuals were under the age of 21. The owner of the vehicle claimed ownership. All individuals were issued citations for no fishing license.CINCO BAYOU Â„ Officer Corbin was on land patrol conducting boating safety, resource protection and license compliance at Cinco Bayou Boat Ramp. The offi-cer saw a male subject exit a vehicle and enter the water with a spear gun and snor-kel gear. He saw the subject swimming parallel with the bridge and spear fishing. About three hours later, the subject returned to his vehicle by land without his spear gun. Officer Corbin explained that he saw him spear fishing within 100 yards of the bridge without a divers down device displayed. The individual did not have a valid fishing license. The individual intentionally left his spear gun on the other side of the bayou because he felt there was an FWC officer in the parking lot. The subject was cited for spear fishing within 100 yards of a fishing bridge, no divers down device and no fishing license.FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION COMMISSIONBoating under the in uence, shing out of season among FWC incidents
