Branton said the study looked at dif-ferent factors like crashes and road features.Another factor observed during this study was the 85th percentile speed. This part of the study looked at the speed that 85 percent of vehicles traveled at or under, which gave the department an idea of what the speed limit should be.All of these factors were considered in the decision to raise the speed to 55 mph making it more consistent and predictable throughout SR10/US90,Ž Branton said in an email.The new speed limits signs already have been placed alongside the highway.Speed limit raised on portion of U.S. Highway 90 Florida Department of Transportation placed new signs along the section of U.S. Highway 90 where the speed limit was raised by 10 mph.

She is survived by her 3 children, Rick (Bob), Bill (Annette) and Carol Cassity, two grandchildren, Robert and Bill Jr, Nieces Linda Cantrell (Randy), Jennifer, Caroline(Marty), and Caren (Joey), four great nieces and eight great-great nieces and nephews. She spent most of her childhood in the East Tennessee/ Virginia area. LaFollette, TN is where she called homeŽ. Emily graduated from Virginia Commonwealth with her RN degree and joined the US Army Nurse core. She served in Europe and Fort Benning, Georgia. While at Ft. Benning, she met and married Richard Cassity. Emily resigned her commission as Captain in 1957. She and Richard moved to Miami, FL and raised their family. After raising her children she earned her BS from Florida International University in Nursing Administration. Richard was a teacher and every summer was spent either in Tennessee (with a large extended family) and/ or traveling around the country in an RV. Emily was always up for a road trip and visited most of the United States, Canada and Europe. Her last big trip was when her sons took her on a Caribbean cruise for her ninetieth birthday. She volunteered at many different charities throughout her life. She gave of herself quietly and without fanfare to friends, family and those in EMILY RUTH LYNCH CASSITY1925 2018On July 11, 2018, cherished wife, beloved mother and adored sister, Carla Jo Ann Dawson of Niceville, succumbed to her battle with cancer at the age of 54, just 14 days shy of her next birthday. Her sudden passing has broken the hearts of all who knew her and especially devastated her devoted husband, Gary Dawson; daughters, Shawna Bauer and Summer Dawson; sons, John Bauer and Cody Dawson; her precious grandson, Carson Forehand, as well as brothers, sisters and countless friends and extended family. Born in Sacramento, California on July 25, 1963, Carla moved several times during her youth and into adulthood before settling down in Northwest Florida in 1986. As a woman who found a passion in so many things, one of her greatest were the Girl Scouts, whom she has worked as a leader and volunteer, specifically with the Northwest Florida Girl Scout Council, for over 30 years. Second to that, her Belly dancing group, the Kasba Dancers of Northwest Florida, with whom she had been dancing with and teaching for over 20 years. She was a woman of many talents and capabilities. Her love and compassion for others was endless and immeasurable. She found joy in giving and did so as much and as often as possible. From giving something as simple as her time to listen to a loved ones woes, to coordinating fundraising events to raise money for numerous charities, local and nationwide. There was never a problem too big or too small for Carla to conquer and her enthusiasm for life was impossible to ignore. Carla was a beautiful, irreplaceable soul and will always be loved and missed by all those who had the honor of knowing her in this life. A special thanks to the staff at Sacred Heart Hospital, Dr. Wu, Dr. Roberts, Hospice home care, as well as family and friends who showed her the same love and compassion at the end of her precious life that she showed throughout her own.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, July 21, 2018 A5These phrases of the Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi were looked at in the July 14 article: Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faithƒŽ The prayer continues with the following segments.Where there is despair, hopeŽ: If you encounter someone who feels there is despair for the future, no hope for their current circumstance, or feels there is no way out of their current situation, you can help them see otherwise. Someone caught in the throes of misery, desolation, or anguish can feel very alone in their situation. One of the best ways to help bring hope to one such as this is simply being present to them. By your presence you can be a beacon of hope that all will eventually turn out okay. You more than likely will not be able to talk them out ofŽ their situation, but your acts of kindness, your prayers andyour attentiveness will work wonders in restoring anothers hope for their life.Where there is darkness, lightŽ: There is much darkness in this world. Some of it is the lack of good, the lack of a positive influence. Some of it is selfishness andgreed. Be honest„ evil in this world does exist. It covers the good and positive aspects of life. It causes people to think and act only for themselves. You can demonstrate the good, positive, generous characteristics of life that come from faith in Jesus Christ. You can be that positive influence to someone who seems to be walking in darkness, and bring them into the light of Gods loving grace.Where there is sadness, joy.Ž: If you find someone weighed down by sadness, you can bring a ray of youŽ into that persons life. A telephone call, a greeting card, a short visit, a listening ear will help the other know they are not alone in their sorrow. Just knowing someone is thinking about and caring for them will lighten their heart. It will lift their spirits. Each small act of kindness brings a ray of joy to that persons heart. And before long, joy enters in its fullness. Hatred, injury, doubt, despair, darkness, and sadness are often what the world has to offer. They stir up discord, uncertainty, and enmity in life. Love, pardon, faith, hope, light, and joy are gifts that come from God through Jesus Christ. These are the gifts you can share with others as you become an instrument of the Lords peace. There is more to this wonderful prayer. Check again next week. The Rev.

** A6 Saturday, July 21, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin OPINION It is good to see Putin and Trump meet. Between our two countries, we have 90 percent of the worlds nuclear weapons; it is best we get along. An isolated and angry Russia would not be good for the rest of the world. Obama or Hillary would have gotten another Nobel Peace Prize for meeting with North Korea and Russia this soon in their presidency, but, according to the press, Trump doing it is the worst thing to happen to international relations „ ever. Obama was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize just for showing up to work. Just weeks after invading Crimea, Putin was also nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Jimmy Carter and Al Gore, of course, both have one. Hitler was nominated for one in 1939 but didnt win. He blamed it on the Jews. Id like to have seen the faces of the Nobel Peace Prize judges when Putin didnt win and KGB officers asked for their names, addresses and brief descriptions of their cars. As we know, Nobel prizes are only for Democrats. Reagan brought world peace without firing a shot by bringing down the Berlin Wall, and he didnt even get a Daytime Emmy. Joe Biden was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for helping Sino/American relations by having a nice conversation about China with the help at a New Jersey Panda Express. Socialists and communists (aka the media) and their benefactors in the Democrat Party suddenly are Cold War warriors and are taking a hard line against Russia. They point to the corrupt KGBs bullying tactics in framing political opponents. Have they been watching Comey/Strzok/ McCabe/Page/Orr/Rosensteins FBI? We did the same thing under Obama. NSA spy (which Obama officials Brennan and Clapper lied about) and whistleblower Edward Snowden feels safer in Russia than in the U.S. Thats telling. For two years, Putin played chess while Obama was playing checkers. It has been said that negotiating with Obama is like playing chess with pigeons. They fly in with great ceremony but wont make a move when its their turn. Then they leave, come back and knock over all the pieces, mess on the chess board, and strut around like they won. Trump is different. He was in Helsinki to do a deal. In my award-eligible column, Putin, and Blaming Others,Ž I explored Obamas feckless relationship with Putin. Putin just went in and took Crimea under Obama, whose only reaction was a sternly written UN letter. Putins response to Obama: Crimea a river.Ž Russia caught Obama off guard. Prior to the invasion of Crimea, in Obamas mind our nations biggest threats were the Koch brothers, the tea party and health care providers. Obama famously laughed at Mitt Romney when he said Russia was our biggest geo-political threat.Ž To be fair, Putin did allow Crimeans to vote to join Russia. The ballot only had an Opt-in: YesŽ block; there was no option to vote No.Ž Putin got the idea from the Facebook User Agreement.ŽTrump said a few positive things about Putin, and the Obama FBI and DOJ manufactured the DNCs fake Steele Dossier into an investigation. To Trumps point, we should listen to Trump and Putin in a small roomANOTHER VIEW Geography counts in diplomacy, as well as military and other more tangible occupations. The Helsinki summit between Presidents Vladimir Putin of Russia and Donald Trump of the United States has sparked controversy. As usual, context helps. Reflecting location bordering Russia, Finland traditionally encounters relations among larger nations, including war and Cold War along with diplomacy. President Ronald Reagan in 1988 spent three restful days in Helsinki before going to a summit meeting with President Mikhail Gorbachev of the Soviet Union. In September 1990, President George H.W. Bush met with Gorbachev in Helsinki, following up an earlier meeting in Malta. Iraq had just invaded Kuwait, and Bush wanted to use Moscows considerable influence to reverse that armed aggression. At the time, there were several thousand Soviet military advisers in the Mideast. Nations invading other sovereign nations is unusual since World War II. Ultimately, a broad international coalition led by the U.S., and fully authorized by the United Nations, liberated Kuwait. The Soviet Union supported the effort. Washington and Moscow also were allies in 1956, in the UN and elsewhere, in the assertive … and successful … leadership of President Dwight D. Eisenhower to thwart the joint British-French-Israeli military attack on Egypt. Egypts nationalist President Gamal Nassers seizure of the Suez Canal prompted that invasion. This is another example of nations violating national boundaries. Britain spearheaded the effort to return to the methods of 19th century imperialism. Ike demonstrated forcefully that the world had gone beyond tolerating that behavior. In 1997, President Bill Clinton met with President Boris Yeltsin in Helsinki. The encounter further underscored Finlands role as useful meeting ground for principal leaders of the Cold War superpowers. Beyond these two nuclear weapons powers, in 1992 the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) convened in Helsinki. This inclusive diplomatic body had grown to 52 nations, focused on promoting stability and transparency among the European nations. In 1975, the 35 nations comprising the CSCE signed the important Helsinki Accords to confirm the legitimacy of Europes national borders. This was a major diplomatic victory for the Soviet Union, as well as worthwhile generally for stability. The Trump administration overall has been consistent in giving emphasis to secure borders for Finland and the Baltic States, traditional targets of Russian aggression. We are with you, we stand with you on behalf of freedom.Ž Vice President Mike Pence made that statement in July 2017 in Estonia, the first stop on a trip that included Georgia and Montenegro, also pressured by Russia. President Sauli Niinist of Finland visited the White House in 2017. On April 3 2018, the United States hosted a Baltic Summit, underscoring commitment to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. In 1940, the Soviet Union annexed the Baltic States, which had ach ieved independence in 1918. The U.S. government continued to fly the Baltic States flags throughout that occupation. Exile groups from the Baltics become influential in the United States, and elsewhere. All three nations became NATO members in March 2004. During the Cold War, the Finns accommodated Moscow but were never under direct Soviet control. The RussoFinnish War of 1939-1940 ended through negotiation, not conquest. This greatly embarrassed Soviet leader Joseph Stalin and the Red Army, which had anticipated easy victory. Lethal highly trained Finnish ski troops inflicted enormous Soviet military casualties. The two prima donnas who just met in Helsinki proved unworthy of this important history. Credit the Finns for being helpful … and tough. Arthur I.

** A8 Saturday, July 21, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin SPORTS & OUTDOORSthe clairvoyant Putin; he can predict with 100 percent certainty which of his political opponents will kill themselvesŽ in the coming weeks. And Putin is putting a happy face on Russian tourism. Their new slogan: Visit Russia before Russia visits you.Ž We have issues with Putin. His human rights record is bad. He even purged gays from Russia, once saying Russia now has none. Then there were those tacky Russian warm-up suits their Olympians wore in the opening ceremony when Russia hosted the Olympics in Sochi. They looked like a gaudy 1980s disco design. I am just glad there were no gays there to see them. So maybe Trump could have backed our intelligence agencies better against Putin. These are the same ones who told us there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq (price tag $2 trillion in a worthless war), and went after Trump with the fake collusion investigation. So I get why he is careful. One think tank says that the U.S. meddled in 89 elections (remember Obama getting involved in Israels election to defeat Netanyahu?), and other countries meddled in 32 of ours. If Muehlers investigation concludes anything, it will be that the DNC colluded to help Trump win by nominating Hillary Clinton. Ron Hart is a libertarian op-ed humorist and awardwinning author.

HARTFrom Page A6 By Renee Bell 682-6524 | @cnbRenee reneeb@crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW „ Harrison Mauldin of Crestview and Jacob Luttrell of Shalimar were among participants in the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games July 1-6 in Seattle, Wash. Mauldin competed in running categories and Luttrell in golf. They each brought home medals in their divisions. Below is a questionand-answer session with Mauldin and his mother, Karen Mauldin. An interview with Luttrell will be published in a later News Bulletin issue.How did you prepare for this years Olympics? HARRISON: I trained well. I worked out at the high school track after school and on Saturdays at Special Olympics track practice, at the Twin Hills track, and the treadmill in my bedroom.Whats your favorite part of the games? H: I dont know what I would label as my favorite. I just enjoyed my whole trip. It was my first ever plane ride. I liked the weather in Washington. I really liked the color of the track (purple) and the surface. I liked hanging out with all the good people there. These are only a few examples of why the trip was a blast.Do you intend to compete next year? H: Of course. Hopefully Im able to run a half-marathon at the state games. I also hope to go to the next USA Games in four years and run the half-marathon.What do you like to do in your spare time? H: Listen to music, look up videos of people conducting classical music and car videos. I like to run in my leisure time as well. I like to tell jokes. I am also interested in researching genealogy and ancestry.What did you do to celebrate your wins? H: I shook my competitors hands and held their hands up on the podium. I also went out for a steak dinner with my mom and granny when I got home.How long has your son been a runner? KAREN: Harrison has been running since the fifth grade, when he was almost 12 years old. He is now 19 years old.What is the best part of the games for you? K: Watching my son compete on a national level was amazing. I enjoyed watching the track members of Team Florida compete, but the best part was being there in person with my family to see him compete. He set his personal record for time in all of his events. Watching how happy he was with his team and making new friends, even his competitors, was just a joy. He told us that although the medals are great, it is better to respect others than to medal. He is a true inspiration! Also, my husband and I coach Special Olympics track here in Crestview, so both as a mother and a coach, I am elated! We told him that the experience of attending the games is the great part. If he medaled, that would be the icing on the cake (or the butter on the bread „ my mother-in-laws words, since he doesnt eat sweets). He came home with three medals, two gold and a bronze, which far exceed any expectations. His fourth place ribbon was probably the most exciting out of all of them because of the finish of the race. Our whole family couldnt be more proud!How many family members were able to attend the games? K: Aside from myself, my family members that attended were my husband, Rodney, my mother-in-law, Doris Mauldin, our other children, Danielle Mauldin, Travis Polk, and Taylor Scott, and our grandchildren, Amoree Mauldin and Titus Scott, all of whom are just as proud of Harrison and what he accomplished.How has his training changed him? K: His training hasnt really changed him. He just likes to run and has a wonderful attitude, not just towards any personal goals, but towards his fellow athletes as well. Hes very into nutrition, but he took that on all by himself when he was 12. He likes to compete but doesnt see it as a competition, if that makes any sense. Again, he runs because he just likes to run.How did he get into running? K: When he was little, he watched his sister, Taylor, and brother, Travis, run cross-country and track at Crestview High School. He just decided one day that he wanted to run. The distance he ran picked up quickly, the farther he can go, the better. He is now starting training for half-marathons, hoping to one day run a marathon.When did you realize he had real Olympic prospects? K: When he started competing in the 5K and 10K at the Special Olympics state summer games five years ago and each year since. More than that, it was and is his dedication to running, his wonderful attitude, and his respect for his fellow athletes. The state decides who will attend USA Games and they see the same things in him that we do.Is he going to compete again at the next Special Olympics? K: He competes every track season locally and hopefully can attend the state games each track season. As for the next USA Games, which will be in Orlando, they loved having him represent Florida this time, so hopefully he has a great shot at it in four years.Crestview runner brings home 3 Special Olympics medalsHarrison Mauldin and his 4x400m relay team members take time for a photo during the 2018 Special Olympics in Seattle, Washington.
