Flower potting occurs when a firework shell explodes in its mortar, causing the firework not to reach its expected altitude, he said.Some spectators watching the show over the Santa Rosa Sound questioned whether the explosion was intentional and, if not, whether anyone was harmed. Nearby boats retreated to a safe distance.However, other specta-tors thought the low-flying fireworks was all part of the 15-minute, $23,000 production.Carter said the two technicians on the barge during the display were not injured.All that happens is the shell doesnt leave like its supposed to,Ž Carter said. Other than that, I think it was nearly flawless.

He began his first job in Calera, when he was only nine years old, delivering newspapers riding his bicycle as transportation. He later went on to delivering Western Union Telegrams in Birmingham, Alabama. Upon graduation from high school, William attended Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, before joining the United States Navy in January 1955 completing the Aviation Cadet Training Program at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida, then earning the Navy Wings of GoldŽ at the Naval Air Station in Hutchinson, Kansas on July 31, 1956. He married Sylvia Calfee Lucas of Birmingham, Alabama on August 10, 1956, and they began life together in Jacksonville, Florida where Bill was assigned to squardronVP-18, flying P2Vs an anti-submarine aircraft. He served four years active duty, and then remained in the Navy Reserves flying many other Navy aircraft before retiring in January 1977 as a Commander. During the time he served as a pilot in the United States Navy Reserves, he also worked as an airline pilot. His airline career began in June 1959, when he went to work for Southern Airways, in Atlanta, Georgia flying the DC-3 but later spent most of his time flying the DC-9.

Bill and Sylvia loved to travel and made several trips to Europe and Hawaii, as well as snow skiing in Colorado, snowmobiling in Yellowstone National Park, and horseback riding in Wyoming, before he retired. Upon retiring they continued to travel going on several cruises either to Alaska or the Caribbean, but Bill mainly enjoyed camping in his Bigfoot truck/camper and driving his Duramax Dually trucks, vacationing in all of the Western States many times, especially in Wyoming, Bills favorite. They moved from Fort Walton Beach, Florida where they had lived for forty-seven years, to Acworth, Georgia in August 2017 to be near their son and his family. They were long time members of First Baptist Church.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, July 7, 2018 A3participated in a daring aerial raid on Japan, bombing seven cities just months after the Japanese had laid waste to American naval power at Hawaiis Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.Horton died in 2008, but it wasnt until the 2016 passing of retired Army Air Force Staff Sgt. David Thatcher that Cole became the Raiders last man standing.But, typical of the mem-bers of what has come to be called Americas Greatest Generation,Ž Cole rejects any suggestion that the Doolittle Raiders are worthy of any special notice.I dont think that the Raiders should be remem-bered any more than the millions of other people who took part in World War II,Ž he said during a brief interview at the Air Force Armament Museum, where he spent part of Tuesday afternoon signing books written about his life and exploits.Regardless of Coles view, the Doolittle Raiders are woven tightly into the historical fabric of this area. For a little more than two weeks in March 1942, they trained at what was then Eglin Field for an improbable, never-before-attempted mission: launching stripped-down B-25 bombers off the deck of an aircraft carrier and flying hundreds of miles across the Pacific Ocean to bomb Japan.The training took place under the direction of Pensacola-based Navy aviator Lt. Henry Miller. The mission itself was led by Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolit-tle, a famed air racer and aeronautical engineer. Among the challenges for the aircrews was get-ting the bombers airborne after just 500 feet of take-off roll. Normally, the B-25 required 3,000 feet to get airborne.Less than a month after leaving Eglin Field, on April 18, 1942, U.S. Army Air Force Lt. Dick Cole and 79 of his fellow airmen„ all volunteers and none of whom had flown a combat mission„ boarded 16 B-25 bombers on the deck of the U.S.S. Hornet in the Pacific to start their mission.Cole was in the copilots seat of the lead B-25, which was piloted by Doolittle.Everybody thought that takeoff would be the hardest part of the mission, but we had a good wind over the deck,Ž Cole remembered.The 500-pound bombs didnt do much physical damage, but the mission boosted morale among American troops and citizens, and proved that Japan was vulnerable to attack.It was a pinprick,Ž said Frank Goldstein, a psychologist who has written a book on psyopsŽ„ psychological operations „ in warfare, and also has written about the Doolittle Raiders.But what did they accomplish with that pin-prick?,Ž asked Goldstein, who attended Fridays book-signing. They got people thinking, Hey, we can stop these people. This was strategic psy-ops at its very best.ŽDropping the bombs wasnt the only challenge the aircrews faced. Initial plans had called for the aircraft to land at various airfields in China, but 15 of the 16 planes, low on fuel, either crashed, crashlanded or ditched. The remaining B-25 landed in Russia. In all, only three Raiders died during the mission.Cole was among the airmen who bailed out of the B-25s. Asked about his sharpest memory of the raid, after more than 76 years, Cole had a quick response.The thing I remember most is my parachute opening,Ž he smiled.Among the people in line at Tuesdays booksigning was 12-year-old J.J. Dolan, great-grandson of Ed Horton. J.J., who rode to the Armament Museum from Chattahoochee with his father, John, has gotten to know Cole over the years, and was inspired by his great-grandfather and Cole to recently join the Civil Air Patrol.Its an honor to see him whenever I can,Ž J.J. said. I know that what they did was very brave.ŽCole will be at Fort Walton Beach Landing for an hour beginning at 5 p.m. on the Fourth of July to sign books. Proceeds from book sales will go to the General James H. Doo-little Scholarship Fund. The fund awards one or more scholarships of up to $5,000 to college juniors, seniors or graduate students pursuing a degree in aerospace science, aeronautical engineering or a related field at any accredited college or university in the United States or its possessions.

** A4 Saturday, July 7, 2018 | Crestview News BulletinBy Brian Hughes Special to the News BulletinNOIRMOUTIER-EN-LLE, France „ This Saturday, the eyes of the worlds sports buffs will be focused on a relatively small island off the west coast of France, and nowhere will those eyes shine with more excitement than Crestview.For 23 years, folks in the seat of Okaloosa County, as well as their neighbors in communities throughout the county, have enjoyed the many benefits of their special relationship with Noirmoutier under Sister Cities International.Now that the island has gone "Tour de France crazy," as resident Lucas Charier put it, Noirmoutrins friends in Crestview and elsewhere in Okaloosa County have got the tour fever, too."I wish we could be there with them," said Crestview City Council President JB Whitten, who visited Noir-moutier last September with his wife, Anne. "It would be fantastic to be there."Dr. Nol Faucher, mayor of Noirmoutier-en-lle, said landing the launch of one of the worlds most eagerly fol-lowed sporting events was a major coup for the islands officials and those from the Vende Dpartment (county) in which the island is located."We have been working on this for a long time," Faucher said. "All the eyes in the world will be on our island." For the past several weeks, the island has sprouted a sea of yellow Tour banners, flags and pennants. Every round-about flutters with them. Banners line the streets of every town and village."They are everywhere!" Lucas said.For local business owners such as Lucass father, who owns a shop that sells and rents bicycles, scooters and motorbikes, having the Tour start in their island is an eco-nomic windfall. The shop added a line of Tour de France T-shirts to its usual cycling gear."The T-shirts have been selling very much," Lucas said. "Almost all of them are sold."With parking at a premium, the Chariers expect a brisk business this weekend, renting bikes to visitors wholl cycle down the island via its many paved bike paths to the races starting point, thePointe de la Fosse bridge at Noirmoutiers southern-most tip.With only 10,000 inhabitants, having such a prestigious event in the world of sport begin on Noirmoutier is a thrill not just for Noir-moutrins, but for their friends in Northwest Florida as well. "Its unbelievable it should start there!" Whitten said.Tour de France kicks o in Crestviews Sister CityVehicles drive past a yellow Tour de France banner mounted on the Rond Point de Crestview (The Crestview Roundabout).

I remember a time when TV and water were free and porn cost money. Now Im certainly not a Grammar-NaziŽ or a word-nerd, especially given the locker-room opinions I spew weekly (some would say weaklyŽ). But people out there really need to focus on cleaning up their language, especially as it relates to overusing three words that are dumbing down the English language: like,Ž literallyŽ and amazing.Ž For the 40-and-unders out there, you know how you use the word likeŽ in, like, every other sentence? Dont! When folks my age, those who can remember when Elton John was married to a woman, interview you for a job, the use of the word likeŽ as some filler crutch word is maddening to us. And when done in a high-pitched, nasal, Kardashian-Valley Girl way, its akin to torture. It makes you seem vapid, imprecise and, quite frankly, stupid. This has gone on too long, and I have been meaning to say something about it. So, please, stop it. You know how you kids use the word amazing,Ž like, all the time? Dont. Witnessing your childs birth is amazing. Your sandwich from Whole Foods is not amazing.Ž Neither are the jeans Ashley just bought nor the top she wears with it. The synonyms in the dictionary for amazingŽ include: astonishing, wonderment, astounding, stunning, shocking, breathtaking, spectacular, stupendous and phenomenal. Ashleys jeans have been massproduced in a Chinese sweatshop for fifty years; there is nothing amazingŽ about them. So please stop using amazingŽ for anything mildly above average. People who are constantly amazedŽ are low-IQ folks. The words likeŽ and amazingŽ tend to be used by young women. For some reason, the men of this generation have taken to ending their sentences with a groan or a tapered-off grunt. Im not sure why that started happening, but it also is annoying. Please stop. Maybe it is a primal noise whereby modern-day men, neutered in college by the system, become wussified men seeking to reclaim some sort of caveman-like aura. Look guys, you like to grow beards now, but you cannot change a tire or drive a stick shift car. So stop it with the fauxmacho/Mumford and Sons persona. We aint buying it. Lastly, you know how both men and women use the word literallyŽ way too often? Please stop. LiterallyŽ is a crutch word used when you are trying to bring emphasis to an otherwise boring story about yourself. I heard a guy say the other day, It was literally raining cats and dogs.Ž Now unless there was an explosion at the humane shelter, this cannot literallyŽ be true. For literallyŽ to work, what you are saying must have a figurative meaning that is actually happening. That does not occur every other sentence when you are telling a story about you and your roommate Skeeter going to a concert. If you use it too much, you can join a literary society: Americans Who Figuratively Use Literally, or A.W.F.U.L. I get the colloquialism of the English who say shes in hospitalŽ and African-Americans who use the word ax.Ž In fact, I hear Unilever will soon market to white folks a new body wash that they plan to call Ask.Ž But please do not let the words like,Ž amazingŽ and literallyŽ get used as often and in the manner they are. It is just plain annoying. I blame these expensive, non-judgmental colleges we have which have been dispensing terrible educations for decades. To do well at these liberal colleges or to eat in a Washington D.C. restaurant today, you have to be a Liberal. Democrats have not made going to college so difficult or denied so many access to restaurants since the 1960s.

Write a letter to the editor.Its like, literally amazing How Sloppy Language has Become Summits are happening a lot right now, thanks primarily to the interest „ at least for the moment „ of United States President Donald Trump in meeting and mingling. Critical commentary along with other media attention pursue him, which means summitry is at a pinnacle these days. North Korea leader Kim Jong Un also deserves credit for the current vogue. His country went through a century of harsh occupation and dictatorship. Imperial Japan occupied all of Korea from early in the 20th century until defeat in war in 1945, and then the Soviet Union installed the current brutal Kim regime. Trump left a Group of Seven economic summit in Canada to meet with Kim in Singapore on June 12. A summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin is coming up. Allied leaders during World War II met regularly. The talks among U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister Winston Churchill of Great Britain, and Premier Joseph Stalin of the Soviet Union redrew borders in Europe and elsewhere while fighting the Axis powers. Churchill used the term summitŽ to refer to such talks at the top. According to Cambridge University historian David Reynolds, in his 2009 book Summits: Six Meetings that Shaped the Twentieth Century,Ž the great British leader employed the word this way in a speech in Edinburgh Scotland in February 1950, probably because of the global media attention focused on efforts by climbers to scale Mount Everest in the Himalayas. Churchill returned to the imagery in a House of Commons speech in May 1953. At this time, British explorer Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa mountaineer Tenzing Norgay were striving to scale Everest. They reached the top at the end of the month. Credit Ben Zimmer for providing this fascinating history in a column last month in The Wall Street Journal. Summits have a mixed history, as do efforts to surmount mountain peaks. President Barack Obama experienced both success and failure. Showing initiative, the new U.S. chief executive met with Russias President Dmitry Medvedev in July 2009. The leaders agreed on a framework to reduce nuclear weapons and permit U.S. forces to cross Russian territory to support military operations in Afghanistan. Later, Obama blundered badly in an illconceived much-touted Arab summit at the White House and Camp David during May 13-14, 2015. Only two of the six countries invited, Kuwait and Qatar, ultimately sent their top leaders. Bahrain, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates sent lower level government representatives. This showed lack of respect for Obama, along with remarkably inept U.S. political calculation. White House spokesperson Josh Ernest compounded the error by naively emphasizing that those attending were in fact the most appropriate government representatives. The primary lesson is that good intentions and focus on speeches rather than the hard work of detailed policy ultimately means failure. President Richard Nixon and associates did exactly the sort of difficult labor required, then moved on to summits as conclusion to their work. The SALT I treaties with the Soviet Union in 1972 stabilized the nuclear arms race, which by then had become intense. Simultaneously, U.S. dialogue with China, culminating in Nixons historic visit to Beijing, paid continuing dividends.The mixed bag of summits, past and present Arthur Cyr Ron Hart

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, July 7, 2018 A9 FAITHWhat is the value of a smile? It can be priceless. Here are two stories about the value of a smile. The stories are similar, but with very different results. Dr. Robert Healy, a psychotherapist, wrote of a patient of his, a young man, who had gone to him for therapy after having changed his mind about committing suicide. It seems that this young man planned to jump off a bridge in his town. Then something strange happened. While driving his car to the bridge, he stopped at a traffic light. Looking toward the sidewalk he spotted an elderly woman who was smiling at him. He felt himself smiling back. The light changed and he drove on, but the memory of her kindly face stayed with him. Later, he told the psychologist, Her smile made me think that perhaps life wasnt so bad after all.Ž The second story: The Golden Gate Bridge is the premiere suicide venue in the United States. Some years back, there was a man in his 30s who left a note in his apartment that said he would not jump from the Golden Gate Bridge if, on the way to the bridge, he met one person who smiled at him. He jumped. Have you ever smiled at a stranger, just to smile and observe a reaction? I do. Its fun. Some people appear shocked. Others have a facial expression that doesnt change. But the wonderful reaction is when they smile back. Recently, two people saw me smile at them, and the brightest grins swept across their face. For even a brief moment, the burdens they seemed to be carrying were not quite so heavy. Wont you help lighten someones load, brighten their day? It will do wonders for them … and for you. Remember these words from Genesis 33:10 What a relief to see your friendly smile. It is like seeing the face of God!Ž The Rev.
