Stan will be dearly missed.STANLEY GOODMANIt is with great sadness that the family of David Allen Lowitz announces his passing on Wednesday, July 18, 2018, at the age of 50. Born in Balibago, Angeles City, Philippines, David came to the U.S. with his family in 1975, proudly becoming a full U.S. citizen in 1980. Settling in Niceville, David attended Niceville H.S. where he received a sports letter in wrestling his senior year. After high school, David worked for Bradley Industrial Textiles, Valparaiso, for 18 yrs. Working in production, he was known as being well organized, one who thrived under adversity, and one on whom everyone could depend on to keep things running. David attended law enforcement and criminal justice courses at Northwest Florida State College with the goal of dual certification. Meanwhile, he was serving as Okaloosa County Sheriff Deputy in 20052006 until he stepped out of the position in order to be more available for his sick mother. In 2007, he completed his Correctional Officer Certificate for the state of Florida. As of 2007, David worked at the Okaloosa County Jail as a corrections officer for the past 11 yrs., where he was well respected and appreciated. David received the Okaloosa County Department of Corrections Lifesaving Award for Outstanding Performance and Correct Actions reflecting the highest standard of conduct for a correctional officer and bringing credit to the Okaloosa County Director of Corrections. On a personal note, in 2003, David and Shawn professed faith in Jesus Christ and were baptized at Beasley Park, while they were attending Calvary Chapel, Ft. Walton Bch. David married Shawn, the love of his life, May 27, 2006, after an extended romance. Over all, they spent 25 yrs. together. As a testimony to his character, Davids Karate sensei, Lee Foley, once wrote David Lowitz is a very unique individual, very loyal and dependable. He is a very reasonable and commonsense individual who will not overreact in a given situation.Ž David was also known for a good sense of humor, being a thoughtful listener, compassionate, and dedicated to serving suffering people in need. Also to his credit, David saved the lives of multiple people who were in crisis. David enjoyed riding his Victory motorcycle, playing with his German Shephard Chancellor Von Salhaus, playing his guitar, doing karate, horseback riding, and fishing off of whatever pier was available. He loved doing Goofy Golf and gaming with his son, Zack. He loved boogie boarding in the surf, eating hot dogs with a Michelob light. Shawn would always laugh because David would pick the cheapest hot dog, whereas she would always buy DAVID ALLEN LOWITZHyman HyŽ Schneider died peacefully July 26 at 101.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Chabad of the Emerald Coast.HYMAN HY SCHNEIDER 1917 2018Kera Unfried, Birmingham, AL passed away on July 24 after a courageous 10 month battle with cervical cancer. She was born on August 14, 1984 in Fort Walton Beach, FL, and graduated from Choctawhatchee High School in 2002. Kera was employed as a tax analyst at Encompass Health Kera was known for her quick wit, intelligence, compassion, and her never-ending drive and determination. Her joy and passion was spending time with her daughter, Delilah, continuously finding creative ways to encourage, teach, and entertain her. Since the time of Delilahs Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) diagnosis, Kera tirelessly researched PWS, equipping herself to find the best ways to advocate for Delilah, including organizing several drives to raise funds for PWS research. She was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends, especially over the holidays. She loved to watch food tutorials and cooking channels during her spare time. She was an avid reader, and the Harry Potter book series was her all-time favorite. Incredibly gifted with the ability to learn anything that interested her, Kera mastered the arts of sewing, needle crafts, painting, and calligraphy. She loved the water and found her happy place at the beach. As a result of her being an accomplished self-taught photographer, Delilah and the rest of the family are left with the treasure of many images of their adventures together. Despite her hectic schedule, Kera pursued her degree in Business Management. Upon completion of a few remaining classes, she would have graduated this year from the University of Alabama, Birmingham. Ironically, she loathed the hounds-tooth pattern, was a dedicated sports and Auburn football fan, and enjoyed gathering with close friends to watch AU games. Kera is survived by her daughter Delilah Grace Unfried, her Soul-mate and best friend Kevin Turner, Parents Daniel and Cindi Barrow, Sister Conni Perkins, Brother and Sister-in-law, Justin and Danielle Barrow, and Biological Father, Chris Mickelson. She is also survived by her Grandparents, Ferriest and Jane Richardson and Dewey and Lois Barrow, and her Nephews Carter, Logan, Wyatt, Blaine, and Cody, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins and 2nd Mom and DadŽ, Janet and Jack Williamson. Kera was preceded in death by her Grandmother, Linda Richardson, Greatgrandparents, Luther and Lorena Jenkins, and Pricilla Bowden. A number of people made selfless, tireless efforts to assist with the care of both Kera and Delilah over the last several months, and the family would like to express our everlasting gratitude for the love and help. Specifically, thank you to Sandra and Jerry Montalbano, Brad and Jennifer Young, Mrs. Sharpe and the entire staff of Vestavia East Elementary School, the staff of Vestavia Hills School Extended Care, Keras friends and colleagues in the tax department at Encompass Health, and Sarah Eddington. We also thank the team of physicians lead by Dr. Michael Straughn and the team of nurses and caregivers of the 7th floor of UAB Women and Infants. Your care and compassion have been a tremendous comfort and are deeply appreciated. A service celebrating Keras life will be held Wednesday, August 1st at 10:00 a.m. at the funeral home, with graveside services immediately following the funeral on Wednesday at Beal Memorial Cemetery in Fort Walton Beach, FL. Anyone wanting to express sympathy may make a donation in Keras name to the Prader-Willi Foundation by going to www.pwsausa.org/ donate-today. Your filling in the Honorees Email PrimaryŽ field with kecoju6@ gmail.com will allow the PWS Association to notify the family of your donation. If preferred, flowers are also welcome. Arrangements are entrusted to Whitehurst Powell Funeral Home in Crestview. Guest book and condolences are available online at www. whitehurstpowell funeralhome.com.KERA UNFRIED1984 2018It is with much sadness that the family of Thomas D. Wall, 83, of Destin FL, announces his passing on July 21, 2018 after a hard-fought battle with leukemia and multiple myeloma. He was born in Soperton, Georgia and raised by his grandparents, Clayton and Alice McDuffie, who preceded him in death as did his parents Sue McDuffie Cumbie and stepfather Thomas Cumbie, father John Wall and brother in law Bill Huntley. He was a graduate of Warner Robins High School GA and Troy State University AL. Thomas was a Vietnam Vet and proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force for 21 years as an avionics specialist. He continued his service through various government agencies and contractors until his retirement. Tom was an avid fisherman and was active with the Panhandle Fly Fishers, serving as President for two years where he made many good friends. We know he is catching the big onesŽ with Bill, James and Jim now. He was also a member of the Masonic Lodge and was a Shriner for the past 48 years. Thomas will be remembered for his sense of humor, hardy laugh, and the fact that he never met a stranger. He was a wonderful husband to his wife of 63 years Helen Huntley Wall and loving father to his daughters, Shari Helton of Rock Hill SC and Karen Hartley Fillingim (David) of Destin FL; grandchildren Blaine Helton (Jessica), Kari Helton, Trey Hartley; great granddaughters, Georgia, Emma and Caroline Helton; sister Virginia Allsep (Doug); In Laws Patricia Huntley Bryan (Jed), Bob Huntley (Donna), Joann Huntley and many beloved nieces and nephews.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Wednesday, August 1, 2018 A5women, everyday people.ŽTo determine the legit-imacy of a Sasquatch encounter, Minnis looks at things like the witnesss credibility, how fresh the incident is in the persons mind (some people dont come forward for months or even years for fear of ridicule, if they even come forward at all) and whether or not an animal, human or other event could explain the witnesss encounter.Our goal at BFRO is to get scientific evidence to prove that Bigfoot exists,Ž Minnis said. And then to protect the species. There are some organizations out there that believe they need to kill something to prove it, but I am abso-lutely no-kill.Ž Sightings in NW Florida According to the BFRO, Florida is the state with the third highest number of Bigfoot sightings in the Continental U.S. with 323 total confirmed sightings. It trails California with 437 and Washington State with 653.In Northwest Florida, between Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton counties, there have been 16 reported Bigfoot sightings since the early 1980s, according to the Gulf Coast BFRO and national BFRO.The accounts range from a kayaker on the Yellow River who suspected a Bigfoot was throwing rocks at him in the swamp to a group of people who fled in all directions after encountering a large humanoidŽ form.Me and my brother were driving south ... on Highway 85 about seven miles south of Crestview at 1:30 a.m. when we spotted what at first we thought was a really big black bear on the side of the road,Ž one of the entries, dated March 2013, reads. When we looked we saw a large upright walking (like a human) black Bigfoot type of creature.ŽAlmost all of the encounters have a few key characteristics in common: the witness was in the woods or in a swampy, rural area, the encounter happened at night, and the witness smelled or heard Bigfoot before they saw him.In one entry, dated January 2001, a witness in Milton said he was chopping wood outside his home when he heard a weird, loud growl-scream sound.It was on and off for a few hours,Ž the man wrote. I have never heard anything like it. I had goose bumps all over and the hair on the back of my neck stood up. I was totally freaking out.ŽAnother witness who was deer hunting in north-ern Walton County in 1995 said the only way he could describe the noise he heard was like a two-cycle engineŽ or a chainsaw.ŽThe man who was kay-aking on the Yellow River when he encountered Bigfoot throwing rocks at him wrote that he first heard sticks breaking and smelled a very musky wet dog smell. I thought, its got to be a redneck or something, so I yelled out, hello, what are you doing?Ž The man wrote on the BFRO web-site. No sounds, not even birds, then another rock about the size of my head almost hit my kayak ... the river trip was 25 miles long and it sounded like I was followed the whole way.ŽMike Spaits, spokesman for the Jackson Guard, denied any Bigfoot activ-ity on Eglin Air Force Base, where many of the entries on the BFRO and GCBRO websites say theyve seen the creature.Eglin has not had any reported sightings of Big-foot on our property,Ž Spaits said.And Bekah Nelson, spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said the agency had no official record of Bigfoot sightings in the Northwest region (Escam-bia through Jefferson counties).If we had received any reports, they would be documented in our database,Ž Nelson said in an email to the Daily News Science, skepticism and the elusive SasquatchBased on witness narra-tives, Bigfoot researchers have pieced together what they think a Sasquatch looks, smells and sounds like: Its 7 to 9 feet tall, weighs between 400 and 500 pounds, and has „ obviously „ massive feet. The color of its fur varies from purely black to reddish brown to whitish gray.It also has a very pungent odor and emits a piercing, ape-likeŽ scream.It has long arms and a unique type of stride thats very hard for humans to duplicate,Ž Minnis said. We dont have the anatomical ability to have their exact gait.ŽBut its impossible to know exactly what a Big-foot looks like, because its never been proven to exist in the first place.Despite decades of sto-ries, eyewitness accounts and even a few blurry pic-tures and sketchy videos, no one has ever been able to capture a Bigfoot and prove its existence once and for all.Hair samples have been analyzed, footprints have been measured and seemingly hard pieces of evidence pointing to the existence of Bigfoot have been resoundingly debunked by the scientific community.Minnis admits hes never seen a Bigfoot, but has heard vocalizationsŽ during a Bigfoot hunting expedition in the North Florida woods sev-eral years ago. His wife, Tracey, said she saw a Bigfoot in a clearing in the woods on the side of Interstate 75 during a trip to Sarasota years ago.But despite never having seen one, the Minnises still believe.I believe instinctively that there are Bigfoots,Ž he said. I think theres just so much land, and there are so many woods and mountains that are still unexplored.ŽAlmost on a daily basis, were still finding animals that have been undiscov-ered,Ž his wife, Tracey, added.Minnis said the lack of acknowledgement from the scientific community acts as a deterrent to people who believe theyve had a Bigfoot encounter. Many witnesses are hunters, fishermen or outdoorsmen and women who fear speaking out about their experiences will invite ridicule and shame.Only about 25 percent of people who have a Big-foot sighting ever come forward,Ž he said. People have been ostracized, ridi-culed and had their jobs and relationships threat-ened. Its a tough thing to do.ŽBut he hopes eventually, more people will come forward and loosen the stigma around being a Bigfoot believer. Eventu-ally he hopes people can come together to prove the (so far) mythical creatures existence once and for all.When I see the reac-tion of people whove had encounters, I look at more than what they say, I look at how they feel,Ž he said. And the way they talk, its like its turned their world upside down.Most of them didnt believe Bigfoot exists,Ž he added. But now, they dont know what to think.Ž BIGFOOTFrom Page A1Tracey Minnis and her husband, Mick, are Bigfoot believers who live in Crestview. Mick owns a moving company by day and is a volunteer Bigfoot researcher in his spare time. [ANNIE BLANKS/DAILY NEWS] he completed his gen-eral surgery residency at the University of South Alabama.Part ofMasons decision to come back to the area involved his 9-year-old son, Jennings, who is autistic. He said his family saved money by moving to Florida because of the states special-needs benefits that Alabama does not have. Mason, his wife, and theirtwo sons currently reside in Fort Walton Beach, where Jennings attends a special-needs school.Although he does not live in the city, Mason said he wanted to work in Crestview because its a better fitŽ than Fort Walton Beach.Its exciting to be able to see some people and communicate with them on a different level of more familiarity other than just helping them with their medical prob-lems,Ž he said. Dr. Masons practice manager, Darlene Pourcillie, said that in the first week of opening his office, Dr. Mason had members of the commu-nity that have known him for years stop by and say hello.It was really good to see the community come and welcome him,Ž Pourcillie saidMason brings a unique aspect to our community, the da Vinci Surgical System. This system uses robotic technology, which keeps the surgeon from having to directly touch the patient.As a physician, the robot doesnt do anything. Its not on auto pilot,Ž Mason said. I do everything. Its like my puppet.ŽThe benefit of the robotic technology is the surgeons ability to be more precise and accurate during a surgery, which has proven to reduce patients pain, Mason said.Masons office is located at North Okaloosa Medical Center, 550 W. Redstone Ave. MASONFrom Page A1Sheana said her surgeon wanted her to wait until late August or September to return to work.

She disputes the FHPs account and hired an attorney.The only reason I am fighting this is because even though I dont remember the accident, I know from the evidence ... that (some witness statementswere) not true... it just makes me wonder how many other people have wrongly been charged,Ž Sheanasaid.

Different reasons have been cited from safety to timing to other things going on right now for President Trump and Putin. I said on more than one occasion when Obama was President that he should invite Putin to the White House for dinner. I also said that about Kim Jong-un. Putin nor Jong-un are not beloved by the American people. Americans, or our President are not beloved by the North Koreans or the people of Russia. I don't necessarily know this as gospel fact but I watch the media and read other articles and columns. I suspect it's true. Diplomacy is always a good move to try from any side of the aisle. I do hope our President will have Putin in the White House for dinner, play checkers, pitch horseshoes and treat him to a tour of the White House grounds or something like that. On the other hand, I am sure that CNN, NBC and the New York Times would have great fear over what the two men might talk about. Maybe, they would talk about how our two countries could work together to make our world a safer and better place? Maybe they might talk about world peace? Maybe they would talk about global energy issues, food shortages and helping all people around the globe to have happy productive lives? Who knows what world leaders try to talk about for sure? Maybe Putin would disclose to the President how much his Facebook advertisement budget would be for the next election? The way Facebook stock has fallen this week interested persons should keep an eye on Mark Zuckerberg. He may be meeting with Putin himself to rev up advertising accounts. When it comes to advertising, most media ventures seem to sell to anybody that wants to buy any kind of an advertisement for or against anybody. I have not noticed any television stations in any town in American refraining from running any kind of political advertisement that anyone wants to buy. Some political advertisements are ridiculous and should not be aired on television. The claims against opponents get more outlandish every year. Can you imagine what the advertisements are going to look like against Trump this next time? What if a group from Haiti wanted to buy Facebook ads for or against a candidate? Or what if someone from France wanted to get involved in buying Facebook or other media advertisements? The media groups would sell them the space because they are all desperate to turn dollars. It's a free country, at this point. I'm sure there are groups who might not sell an advertisement to the Pope if he wanted to buy one against Trump but who would that be? Okay, back to Putin's lunch at the White House. Invite him to come and see how it goes. He's not going to stay here. Bring Kim Jong-un and shoot some basketball with him. This will also mean an invite to Dennis Rodman to the White House. And why not? We are talking about peace and trying to get this world together in harmony before we destroy it and that's reason enough. Glenn Mollette is an American syndicated columnist and author. Putin to the White House „ Reason Enough Facebook recently rolled out facial recognition tools in Europe promoted as a way to help users safeguard their online identities. Its a risky move. Amazon shareholders recently expressed reservations over the companys sale of facial recognition software to police departments. A letter from shareholders warned Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos about the potential abuses of the facial recognition technology. The letter suggested that the software "may be intended to enhance some law enforcement activities, we are deeply concerned it may ultimately violate civil and human rights." Just this month Microsoft President Brad Smith wrote, "We believe Congress should create a bipartisan expert commission to assess the best way to regulate the use of facial recognition technology in the United States." "Facial recognition technology raises issues that go to the heart of fundamental human rights protections like privacy and freedom of expression," Smith wrote. A sophisticated computer software, facial recognition is capable of identifying a person by comparing and analyzing patterns based on the persons facial contours. Facial recognition was originally used for security purposes, like entering a building or logging on to a computer. However, facial recognition technology has received significant attention from law enforcement agencies as a tool for surveillance, supervision and tracking down fugitives. What is the big deal? The U.S. Constitution doesnt provide much protection against facial recognition, Jane Bambauer, a law professor at the University of Arizona, told Wired. Surveillance tools, like GPS, wiretaps, cellphones are covered by the Fourth Amendment protections against search and seizure. The courts and policymakers have established guidelines for things like lineups or photo arrays. However, there is no protection for imagery, gathered lawfully, like photographs posted online, mug shots or even drivers license photos. Clare Garvie of the Georgetown Laws Center on Privacy & Technology writes that most people would be outraged if they were asked to identify themselves at a public gathering. In this country, a police officer needs to have reasonable suspicion of a crime before stopping someone on the street and asking questions. Yet it happens every day with facial recognition surveillance. Garvie writes that every man, woman and child passing by a government-installed camera is scanned „ despite no prior suspicion of wrongdoing. "Their faces are nonetheless compared against the profiles of criminals and other people wanted by the police. It enables a world where people are tracked from camera to camera throughout a city „ simply because they chose to get a drivers license." What is happening in China would make George Orwell blush. No other country in the world has more video surveillance. China has 170 million closed circuit television cameras and 400 million new ones being installed. In the near future, its citizens, and those who travel there, will be exposed to a vast and integrated network of facial recognition systems monitoring everything from the use of public transportation, to speeding, to how school children behave in public school, reported The Conversation. And what happens if facial recognition technology gets it wrong? Facial recognition technology advances by the day, but problems with accuracy and misidentifications persist, especially when the systems must contend with poor-quality images „ such as from surveillance cameras, reported the Washington Post. The police in the UKs South Wales rolled out crime fighting facial recognition technology. After 10 months the police declared success according to Inc. Magazine. The technology was wrong 93 percent of the time. A Freedom of Information Act request revealed that there were 173 positive identifications and 2,297 misidentifications. The pervasive use of facial recognition technology by law enforcement creates serious privacy concerns. Some will say that facial recognition technology does no more than observe our dayto-day movements in public, the same way any individual can observe the movement of others. Others will argue that private citizens should not be subject to a "search" comparing their face to a vast pool of data every time they leave their homes. Ultimately the courts must decide this fundamental question: Does a reasonable expectation of privacy under the Fourth Amendment preclude the government from capturing law abiding citizens faces and identifying them without their knowledge or consent?

** Crestview News Bulletin | Wednesday, August 1, 2018 A7By Kaylin Parker 682-6524 | kparker@crestview bulletin.com | @kparkercnbCRESTVIEW „ Local vendors gathered at the farmers market on a cool, crisp summer Saturday to set out their products. One of the first vendors to begin setting up was Bob Sieminski, owner of Forest Farms in Holt. He pulled his van under the pavilion, opened the trunk, and began unloading his produce. Sieminski has a variety of products like raw milk, eggs, honey, fruits and vegetables. He said all of his goods are completely organic. His farm has 35 bee hives, around 100 chickens, dairy cows, a garden, and two greenhouses, he said. Sieminski has been bringing produce from his farm in Holt to the Crestview Farmers Market for three years. I love Crestview,Ž Sieminski said. I would take Crestview over Palafox any day.Ž Sieminski said he loves farming, but the job does not come without challenges. Its always something,Ž Sieminski said. I lost a dairy cow a month agoƒI put two thousand dollars in the ground.Ž The challenges Sieminski faces have not kept him from farming full-time. Why do I like it? What else would I do? Im retired,Ž Sieminski said. Sieminski was not the only regular set up at the market. Esther Phelps and her husband unloaded their van full of fruits and vegetables onto the table sitting next to Sieminski. They have been coming out to the Crestview Farmers Market for four years. Phelps said she grows her produce at local farms and in the community garden occasionally but has her own garden at home. In self-defense, we grow so we can eat and eat good food. But the rest we sell,Ž Phelps said. Most of the time, we feed ourselves first and bring to the market whats left.Ž Phelps has one regular customer from Crestview, Wayne Gauthier. He said he enjoys the good produce at the farmer's market and likes talking to members of the community. "I've been going to farmer's markets and stuff like this for 15 years now, and I find it's great in the summer time," Gauthier said. The farmer's market sells more than just fruits and vegetables. Dena Anderson started bringing her home-made goodies to the farmers market three months ago and has continued to come consistently. I just enjoy feeding peopleƒIm not going to stop doing what I like to do. Im just going to share it with more people,Ž Anderson said. Anderson prepares for the market by spending her week baking pies, bread, and muffins. She also makes jams to go along with the baked goods. The farmers market is located behind the Crestview Police Department and opens at 8 a.m. every Saturday. Farmers market o ers variety of homegrown and homemade goodsBob Sieminski said he sells only products that he produces, which are all organically grown. He owns a farm located in Holt and sells at the farmers market in Crestview every Saturday.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Wednesday, August 1, 2018 B1 EDUCATIONBy Press Gazette contributorThis is when the advantage of buying in bulk shines through. Here are some helpful hints for parents about to shop for school supplies. The back-to-school season is fast approaching. This is a time of school bus traffic on the roads, anxious parents snapping first-day-of-school photos, and children will meeting their new classmates and forging new friendships. This time of the year is also one when parents and students must shop for school supplies. Tradition dictates that families will flock to stores after dismissal and shop for folders, binders, pens and protractors. Caught up in the moment, many shoppers choose convenience over low prices on school supplies. Parents could end up at the check-out line with a considerable bill to pay, particularly if they are shopping for multiple students. Buying items in bulk „ and sharing the cost „ may be a more affordable option. Although it can be easy to procrastinate and wait until school starts to buy supplies, it might be prudent to shop before the new school year begins. Many teachers, in an attempt to help parents save money, publish school-supply lists online in advance of the school year. Most teachers do not vary their requirements from year to year, so if your son or daughter has been assigned a teacher, ask around among last years students to see what that teacher requires. This way you can head to the store or comparison shop online at your convenience. Some supplies are standard regardless of class assignment. These include pens and/or pencils, folders, spiral notebooks, copy paper, loose-leaf paper, erasers, crayons, markers, and highlighters. Purchased individually, the per-unit cost of each item may be higher than purchasing these items in bulk. This is when the advantage of buying in bulk shines through. Here are some helpful hints for parents about to shop for school supplies: € Shop for frequently used items in bulk, whether from online wholesalers or through a warehouse store for which you are a member. € Collaborate with a few different school parents to chip in for school supplies. Then one parent does the shopping and splits the supplies with the others. € Keep a stockpile of supplies at home. They do not expire, and next year you may not have to shop at all. € Having extra supplies on hand enables duplicate sets for at home and in school for consistency. € Some parents like to buy many supplies and then donate some for underprivileged children. This time of year manufacturers or retailers could actually donate a portion of school-supply proceeds to some educational organizations. € Buying larger quantities of supplies could enable you to build up rewards points at certain retailers. This may entitle you to future coupons or dollar awards that can be put toward more expensive items, including tablets or graphing calculators. € Contact the teacher and see if you can volunteer to buy all of the supplies in bulk for the entire class, with each student then paying the required amount. This will save many families time and effort. € If you have a friend or family member who is a teacher, find out if he or she can purchase your school supplies. Often teachers are eligible for a discount on school supplies. € Purchase bulk quantities of certain supplies and find out if they can be sold as a fundraiser for the school. A portion of the sales will go to the PTA. Buying school supplies in bulk can save money and provide an opportunity to give something back to the school community.Buy school supplies in bulk By Kaylin Parker682-6524 | kparker@crestview bulletin.com | @kparkercnbSchool starts in less than two weeks for students in the Crestview and Laurel Hill area, and school faculty and staff members are preparing for the new school year. According to Principal Lee Martello, there are no reported changes for Laurel Hill School, but there are a some policy changes at Crestview High School students. Earlier in May of this year, the School Advisory Council for Crestview, a council made up of parents, teachers, and members of the community, met to discuss changes that would be made for the upcoming year. The biggest change for the Bulldogs is the updated dress code policy. Students will not be permitted to wear paisley bandanas because school officials said they are gang related. In recent years they arent as strong a reference as there are other symbols taking their place, but we just want to look to avoid as much possibility of allowing it in our schools as possible,Ž Thomas Harvell, Crestviews assistant principal, said in an email. Along with the paisley head-wear, students will not be allowed to wear hoods inside the school or anytime from 7 a.m. to 1:55 p.m. The School Advisory Council also implemented the following changes: pants with holes cannot show skin at or above mid-thigh, underwear and undergarments have to be covered at all times, and sleeveless shirts and dresses like tanks and strapless clothing are not allowed without a jacket or sweater. The dress code was not the only change made at Crestview. The school added 10 new faculty members and three new staff members.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Wednesday, August 1, 2018 B3 By Press Gazette contributorStudents who begin kindergarten before theyre ready may fall behind, resulting in frustration that turns them off from school. With such significant stakes, parents may want to answer a few questions and look for these generalized kindergarten readiness clues before enrolling their youngsters in school. Age 5 is a big year in a childs life. In many school districts, children enroll in kindergarten shortly after their fifth birthdays. But age alone does not dictate if a child is ready to transition from a preschool environment to kindergarten, and parents may need to work with educators to determine if their children are ready to take the first big step of their academic careers. Many developmental and education experts believe that numerous factors, in addition to age, determine school readiness, including physical, social and cognitive development. Many parents want their kids to begin kindergarten at the same time as other kids their age, but enrolling youngsters before theyre ready could have repercussions for years to come. Students who begin kindergarten before theyre ready may fall behind, resulting in frustration that turns them off from school. With such significant stakes, parents may want to answer a few questions and look for these generalized kindergarten readiness clues before enrolling their youngsters in school. € Does my child have solid oral-language skills? Language is more than drilling letters and sight words into a childs head through repetition. Language allows kids to share in new experiences and lessons that will expand their vocabularies. The more kids experience, the more their curiosity grows. This opens up opportunities for discussion about a variety of topics and introduces words and concepts that may be new and exciting to children. Research indicates one of the best predictors of eventual reading success is a well-developed oral vocabulary in kindergarten. Children will retain words if they hear them enough and if theyre used in context and conversation. € Can my child listen to and follow instructions? Kindergarten students will be introduced to many foreign things, and some kinds may be in a school environment for the very first time. Teachers will be issuing instructions and seeking cooperation from the class. To keep up with peers and lessons, kindergarteners will need to be able to remain quiet for extended periods of time, listen to instructions and then properly act on them. € Is my son or daughter excited about learning? Some children cannot wait to go to kindergarten, especially those who are excited at the prospect of going to the same school as their older siblings. Enthusiasm about school and an eagerness to learn and discover new things are indicative of kindergarten readiness. A child does not need to have mastery over every skill just yet, but taking the initiative to try and ask questions is a good start to successful learning. € Does my child want to be independent? The phrases Ill do it myselfŽ or Ill tryŽ can be music to a kindergarten teachers ears. Parents may be in a rush and find it easier to dress kids or get them snacks. But doing everything for kids puts them at a disadvantage. Independent streaks can help kids adjust to school. Kindergarteners may have to go to the bathroom and wash up independently. Children who cannot handle such tasks may struggle to adjust to a school environment. € Can my child recognize basic letters and numbers? Children entering kindergarten should know most letters by sight and be able to count to 10. Preparing for kindergarten can be fun and does not require flash cards Encourage kids to count objects in the world around them or do some preliminary reading by recognizing letters on signs at stores Kindergarten readiness is determined by a variety of factors, including age, school assessment, enthusiasm about learning, and signs of independence.Is your child ready for kindergarten?By Press Gazette contributorA childs school-aged years are filled with many different lessons and experiences. While in school, kids have the opportunity to broaden their horizons and meet new people. Many students will attend various schools before moving on to college, and therefore they must learn how to adjust to new schools. While many students attend elementary school together for years, students may not know their classmates once they make it to middle school, which tends to boast larger student bodies than elementary schools. Thats because many middle schools student bodies are a combination of several elementary schools. Making the transition from elementary school to middle school or junior high can spark anxiety in students, but that does not have to be. The National Education Association says a common element of a successful middle school experience is a smooth and positive transition from elementary school. The following are a few ways students can handle their transition to middle school: € Participate in a school-based transition program. Middle schools frequently host open houses for elementary school students, who can take tours of the campus. Parents can take part in these events with their children. If your schedule does not allow you to attend, then schedule a private tour with the middle school principal or a faculty member. Middle school guidance counselors or guest speakers also may make the rounds, visiting elementary schools directly. Be sure your student attends such information sessions so he or she can get an idea of what to expect during middle school. € Dispel any myths your youngster might have heard about middle school. Youngsters hear lots of things about middle schools, and much of what kids hear might be untrue. Ask kids what they have heard about the schools they will be moving on to, and then do your best to dispel any myths. € Find a middle school buddy. Ask an older sibling or invite someone who is currently enrolled in the school to speak with your child and answer any questions he or she may have. Hearing directly from a fellow student may make your child feel more comfortable about what to expect. € Talk about any other fears. Engage in an open dialogue with your son or daughter about any additional fears he or she may have. If students are worried about academics, spend some time over the summer going over the curriculum. If the potential for peer pressure is a cause for concern, reinforce advice on how to react to peer pressure. Parents and their children can take several steps to make students transitions to middle school as smooth as possible.How students can handle the transition to middle schoolBy Press Gazette contributorStudents may need some time to adjust at the beginning of a new school year. Summer vacations typically lack the structure of the school year, and it might be unfair to expect kids to seamlessly slip back into their more regimented lives as students. While some early school year sluggishness might be normal, that should wear off pretty quickly. If not, and students appear to be struggling to get motivated for their schoolwork, parents can try various strategies that should help reignite youngsters passions for learning. € Make your home more school-friendly. Summer is a relaxing time of year when parents have a tendency to relax rules around the house. But come the school year, parents must make sure their homes are as conducive to studying as possible. Resist the urge to turn the television on each night so students are not distracted from their studies. Keep the home quiet so students are motivated to focus on their studies. € Encourage participation in extracurricular activities. Various studies have examined the relationship between extracurricular activities and academic performance. A 2002 study published in the journal Sociology of Education found that participation in extracurricular activities is associated with improved grade point average, increased college attendance and reduced absenteeism. The link between participation in extracurricular activities and improved academic performance is still in need of study, but such participation may help children acclimate to the structure of the school year more quickly than they might if they do not participate in such activities. € Encourage curious youngsters. Kids are curious, and fostering that curiosity can be a great way for parents to get their kids excited about learning. Whether its during the school year and part of their curriculum or on summer break, encourage kids to engage in subjects that interest them. As kids learn more about the topics and subjects that interest them, they may develop a passion for learning that they can then take with them to the classroom. € Express an interest in the subjects children are studying. Another way to motivate students at the dawn of a new school year is to express an interest in the subjects theyre studying. Ask questions about their studies and encourage them to share their thoughts and opinions. Engaging students about the subjects theyre studying can motivate them to explore those subjects more deeply than they otherwise might. Motivating kids to be excited about their schoolwork at the dawn of a new school year can sometimes be difficult. But parents can employ various strategies that can help their children readjust to life in the classroom and motivate them to perform to the best of their abilities.Strategies parents can use to motivate students By Press Gazette contributorKindergarten used to mark a childs first foray into formal education. But preschool has now taken up that mantle for many students. Some parents may recall their own preschool experiences, mostly remembering extended moments of play and more monitored fun inside the school. But as the world of education has become more competitive, and students are required to meet certain standards at even earlier grade levels than before, preschool has undergone its own transformation. Academic preschools have become a popular choice for parents hoping their children can gain that extra edge. Rather than the playbased philosophy preschools adhered to in the past, academic preschools introduce students to the rigors of the classroom. These academic preschools often teach math and reading. Proponents of this type of learning say that children are sponges at early ages, and the more information they can be presented with, the more they are likely to retain it. Children who are able to sit and focus for 20 to 30 minutes at a time and are curious and ask a lot of questions may make for the best candidates at academic-based preschools. Other children may be more comfortable attending play-based schools. While parents who hope to enroll their students in preschool may have to choose between a playor academicbased curriculum, there are other factors to consider. € Is proximity to your home important? Some parents prefer that their childrens preschools be close to home, while others want a school closer to their office. If your commute to work is long, then keep in mind that children will spend more time at a preschool close to home, which can cost more and reduce the amount of time parents and their children spend together. € Should the school be faith-based? Religious organizations frequently offer their own faith-based preschool programs. Parents will have to decide if they want a faithbased curriculum for their young children. € Are preand post-care services available? A school that has flexible hours may be appealing to some. This enables parents to drop off and pick up children according to their own work schedules or in coordination with school hours for other children in the family. € Visit the school and assess the environment. A school may look excellent on paper, but you will not get a feel for it until visiting the school during a school day. Take your child along and get his or her opinion. Parents may love a particular school, but if kids are uncomfortable, the school may prove ineffective. € Confirm the curriculum before enrolling. Schools may have different educational philosophies. These can run the gamut from the Montessori Method to the Waldorf Approach to the High/Scope Approach. Familiarize yourself with a schools educational philosophy so you can be sure you are making the most informed decision possible. € Go with your gut. Sometimes choosing a preschool boils down to a facility that just feels right. At this stage in a childs education, schooling is about learning social skills and growing acclimated to the routines of the classroom.Simple steps to choosing the right preschool [CONTRIBUTED PHOTO]

Okaloosa tax certi“ cate sale nets over $4 million SHALIMAR „The Okaloosa County Tax Collector's Office 2018 Tax Certificate Sale generated $4,748,251.47 in revenue for the Okaloosa County taxing authorities from 3,147 tax certificates sold.According to Tax Admin-istrator Justin Gordon, over $223,000,000 in 2017 Real Estate and Tangible Personal Property taxes have been distributed to date. Tax Collector Ben Anderson credits the success of this years sale to workshops and Facebook Live Stream events held throughout the county in May. The Tax Departments workshops educated both property owners and investment bidders, and as a result, 242 certificates were awarded to local bidders at an average rate of 5.09 percent. The success of the Online Certificate Sale Platform is a testament to our efforts to more efficiently collect taxes on behalf of our citizens," he said.OKALOOSA BRIEFS By Laura Tiu, Holden Harris & Alexander FoggIts early morning as Dreadknot Charters speeds out of Destin Harbor towards the offshore reefs in the Gulf of Mexico. Researchers Holden Harris (University of Florida Ph.D. student), Alex Fogg, (Okaloosa County marine resource coordinator), and the Dreadknot crew, Josh and Joe Livingston, ready their equipment on board. Theyre working on a new method of capturing invasive lionfish: deepwater traps. Invasive lionfish negatively affect native reef communities. They consume and compete with native reef fish, including economically important snappers and groupers, and their presencedrives declines in native species and diversity. Their 18 venomous spines appear to deter native predators. The interaction of invasive lionfish with other reef stressors … including ocean acidification, overfishing, and pollution … is of concern to scientists. Lionfish harvest by recreational and commercial divers is currently the best means of controlling their densities and minimizing their ecological impacts. This years Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day removed almost 15,000 lionfish from the Northwest Florida waters in just two days. The fish are known to inhabit reefs deeper than what can be accessed by scuba divers. Surveys of deepwater coral reefs show they have higher densities and larger body sizes than those on shallower reefs. In the Gulf of Mexico, the highest densities surveyed were within 150…300 feet. While scuba diving is typically limited to 130 feet, lionfish have been observed deeper than 1,000 feet. Dr. Steve Gittings, chief scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, has spearheaded the design for a non-containmentŽ trap.It baitsŽ lionfish by offering a structure that attracts lionfish. The trap remains open while deployed on the sea floor, allowing fish to move in and out of the trap footprint. When the trap is retrieved, a netting is pulled up around the fish inside and they are brought to the surface. The researchers are headed offshore to retrieve, redeploy, and collect data on the lionfish traps. With financial support from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, 12 such traps are currently being tested offshoreinNorthwestFlorida. Recent trials have proved successful in attracting lionfish to the trap with minimal bycatch. Continued research will hone the trap design and assess how deployment and retrieval methods may increase their effectiveness. If successful in testing, the lionfish trap may become permitted for use by commercial and recreational fisherman. The ability to capture deepwater lionfish, traps offer a key tool in our quest to control this invasive species. Florida Sea Grant provides outreach and extension support for the UFs lionfish trap research, as well as other UF marine and coastal marine resource research. Contact Dr. Laura Tiu, Okaloosa and Walton Sea Grant Extension agent, at lgtiu@ufl. edu or 612-6197 for details.Researchers test traps for controlling deepwater invasive lion shOkaloosa County Schools classes begin Aug. 13 and end May 31. Florida's school tax holiday will take place from Aug. 3-5. Clothing, shoes and some accessories under $60 will be tax free, as well as school supplies that sell for less than $15 each. According to the Florida Revenue website at https:// bit.ly/2LopB28, school supplies means pens, pencils, erasers, crayons, notebooks, notebook filler paper, legal pads, binders, lunch boxes, construction paper, markers, folders, poster board, composition books, poster paper, scissors, cellophane tape, glue, paste, rulers, computer disks, protractors, compasses, and calculators. Additionally, school supplies for each classroom are listed on each school's particular website. Go to https://www.okaloosaschools.com/schools/ directory/es, choose the type of school „ elementary, middle, etc. „ and then pull down your particular school. The supply lists are on a PDF that you may print and take with you to the store. There are many helpful things on the school district website, such as holidays, teacher work days and so on, so explore. If you can possibly afford it, add some extras to your child's needed supplies. Things that are always needed are boxes of tissues, hand sanitizer, zippered storage bags (both quartand gallon-sized), sanitizing wipes, reams of white paper, No. 2 pencils, cap erasers, dry erase markers, Post-It notes, folders, and other school supplies. Every year teachers put out hundreds of their own dollars to buy classroom supplies, so it would be nice for us, as a community, to help them out. You may want to ask them what they need when you meet them at Back to School night or buy them a gift card to stores like Walmart, Staples, Office Depot/Office Max, Target and Big Lots and let them buy what they would like. Small gifts throughout the year for your child's teacher are always appreciated. Most appreciated are hand written thank you notes from the student. Also appreciated are restaurant gift cards for those nights when the teacher is too tired to cook dinner, as well as gift cards to places such as Dunkin' Donuts, Home Depot, Amazon, and so on. Use your creativity to thank the teachers, but most of all, verbally thank your child's teacher for a job well done. Please be careful driving now that school will be back in session. Slow down and watch for children.

Her father owned a grocery store called the Campbell Store for 50 years in the heart of Laurel Hill. It was well known throughout the community for many years, and Campbells caretaker said it was one of those grocery stores that sold everything from hardware to ham.She attended Laurel Hill School from a youth to graduation.It wasnt until her father passed away at the age of 52 that Campbell moved back into her childhood home.

** E4 Wednesday, August 1, 2018 | Crestview News BulletinSanta Rosa Mall owners aim to create diverse business baseBy Heather Osbourne315-4440 | @heatheronwfdn hosbourne@nwfdailynews.comMARY ESTHER „ The Santa Rosa Mall owners are continuing to contract with unconventional leasers to fill its many empty storefronts as plans progress for an on-site apartment complex.According to General Man-ager David Macdonald, the mall recently has signed on eight new leasers, including a production studio, dance studio and hair salon. With the construction for the new apartment complex set to begin at the old Belk site in early 2019, Macdonald said the malls owners are trying to create a mixed-use develop-ment with housing, restaurants, retail and more.We understand peoples shopping habits are changing,Ž Macdonald said. Were looking for local and regional operators that will provide our shoppers with a diverse experience.Ž It was 1976 when Santa Rosa Mall first opened with 54 stores, including Sears, JCPenney and Gayfers (now Dillards), a Morrisons Cafeteria and a Winn-Dixie across the parking lot. The movies advertised on the marquee at Santa Rosa Cinema 3 outside the mall were Shampoo,Ž EarthquakeŽ and The Hindenburg.Ž It was touted as Northwest Floridas largest mall.ŽOver the years the mall has undergone many cosmetic changes. There was a major expansion in 1986 that added another 265,628 square feet and the McRaes wing (which later became Belk). The last time the mall had a renovation was in 2000 when a tiled floor replaced the fountain and sky-lights were added.Since then, however, the once bustling mall has slowly become dormant. Instead of traditional retailers, a large section has been turned into a church. Surrounding the food court of only about three res-taurants are a day care center and a bounce house.The mall still has its large retailers such as Dillards, JCPenney and Sears. Those and the other mall stores, though, are scattered among empty storefronts.David Goetsch, an economic specialist in Fort Walton Beach, said Santa Rosa Mall isnt alone in its decline. Shopping malls are disappear-ing nationwide, he said.There used to be three malls in Pensacola and now theres only one,Ž Goetsch said. What youre finding are stores in the mall are relocating to areas that are fitting their needs. For example, Chick-fil-A used to be located in the Santa Rosa Mall. Now you have them in Fort Walton Beach, Crestview and Niceville.ŽGoetsch said the decline likely is caused by online shop-ping and the stigma that malls are a hangout for unruly teens.The big question is will the Santa Rosa Mall be able to replace what used to be with other income-producing and job-producing entities,Ž he said. Creating a community, like they say theyre doing, is always a good idea economi-cally. If you fill up those apartments, the people who live in those apart-ments will want to have a place to shop and eat and work.ŽSome residents say they are dissatisfied with the malls current condition. Lisa Schil-ler said she hopes it mall will be demolished to make way for an outdoor shopping center.It will add value and increase revenue in Fort Walton Beach,Ž Schiller told the Daily News via email Friday. Most people skip Fort Walton Beach and go to Destin or Pensacola for shopping.ŽGoetsch said outdoor shopping centers like Destin Commons are popping up across the United States because they resemble downtown areas, which were popular before the mall era.Its a retro idea,Ž Goetsch said. At the time malls were built, downtown areas were going away because everyone had moved out into suburbia. The Destin Commons takes us back emotionally to us shop-ping in a downtown area. Plus, for the Destin Commons, its location, location, location. They wouldnt survive with-out tourism.ŽMacdonald said in addition to the unconventional leas-ers, the mall hasnt forgotten about adding retailers. Top Fashion has returned to the Santa Rosa Mall with both men and womens stores, and High Street is a a new womens clothing store that will open in early August.The mall has a long history with offering a place to shop and play,Ž Macdonald said. We are continuing that, but tweaking it a little bit by offer-ing new concepts.ŽA mixed-use mall in Santa Rosas future?Shoppers walk through the Santa Rosa Mall near the food court.
