With the addition, the Courthouse Suites will total about 9,000 square feet.Although the front section of the building will be used for office space, Barthe' said he hopes to use the additional section for retail.Were trying to make the most of the square footage and bring some nice things to downtown,Ž Barthe' said.The property will bring a more modern feel to the down-town Crestview area, Barthe' said. The main building will have two floors with a couple conference rooms and about 20 office suites. The retail and office buildings will be adjoined by a shared area.It brings various amenities to Crestview," Barthe' said, "and its an opportunity for some of the things that in Crestview, we would like to see."Courthouse Suites construction underway in downtown CrestviewBy Renee Bell 682-6524 | @cnbRenee reneeb@crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW „ One area club goes beyond its mem-bers participating in a shared hobby and assists local authorities in real life emer-gencies and public events.

The city of Crestview has approximately $300,000 allocated in next years budget proposal for the tentative city managers office, according to city officials."This would not be just for salary but all aspects of establishing a new position," city clerk Elizabeth Roy said in an email.The money budgeted for the city manager's office would go back into the general fund if citizens vote against the amendment, council president J.B. Whitten said.According to Whitten, the number in the budget proposal is higher than the anticipated costs.Although this will be an additional cost, Whitten said he thinks it's a good investment for the city because the position could potentially pay for itself."I would never sit here and guarantee somebody that if we pay someone $100,000 that it will save the city $100,000. I think it will, but I can't guar-antee that," Whitten said.The city manager would be a full-time position and would receive benefits that part-time employees like the mayor and council members don't receive, Whitten said.Next years budget proposal includes tentative city manager o ceCrestview City Hall [KAYLIN PARKER/NEWS BULLETIN] Courthouse Suites is a new multi-functional facility coming to Downtown Crestview.

Joyce was diagnosed with M.S. in 1976, but she was a fighter Through all the pain and suffering, she always managed a smile … she was tough!! My wife of 65 plus years. I was in the Navy, and our first residency was in Portsmouth, VA. in a third-floor apartment. We shared the bathroom with neighbors, had to carry water from there to the tiny kitchen sink, and had an ice box, no stove, but she had a pressure cooker that we cooked in on top of a fuel oil stove for our heat. Our weekends were a fun day in the park with hot dogs and beans. I could go on, but she always smiles, and we loved each other! Rest in peace Joyce, were together forever. Joyce is survived by her sister Sally Gaiser and husband John, and our son, Bill and wife Debbie, daughter Kris Thompson and husband Phil, numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Joyce wrote this poem approximately 10 years ago: Dreaming Its night, and I run Through sweet smelling, dew drenched grass My dog, running on short little legs, Happy to keep up with me I feel the cool breeze on my cheeks The bright moon lights my path And I am happy Then its morning I stumble from my bed And grab my walker Hoping Ill make it through the day Without a painful fall Waiting for the night Joyce Hahn Services were heldAugust 8. 2018.

So, Im glad that I had the opportunity to get the building,Ž Barthe' said.One issue facing Court-house Suites is parking. According to Growth Management Director Teresa Gaillard, the city will not require them to have additional parking because they are located in the downtown parking district.Part of Cedar Avenue was taken up by the court-house parking, and the planning department's Teresa Gaillard said we can use space just inside of the courthouse fence,Ž Barthe' said in an email.McCollough & Sons in Milton is the general con-tractor on the project, and Presergistics in Baker is the major subcontractor.The building is expected to be completed by the end of this year. SUITESFrom Page A1 Typically, a city manager for a city our size is going to cost north of $100,000, which right now, we dont even pay that for the mayor. We have a part-time council and part-time mayor,Ž he said.For comparison, Destin and Fort Walton Beach pay their city managers over $120,000. Both cities are smaller than Crestview.Qualifications would also affect the city managers salary, Whitten said.If you hire someone thats got a masters degree and 20 years expe-rience as a city manager in a large city, then you would pay that individual more than someone that just came out of public administration school and no experience,Ž Whitten said.This charter is the city councils second effort to replace the current mayor-council government with a coun-cil-manager government.Primary election day is Aug. 28. Early voting begins Aug. 18. OFFICEFrom Page A1The club provides communication services during community events like the Crestview Christmas and Veteran's Day parades, and even provides emergency communication services during weather watches.The local club also par-ticipates in city parades and community events.Barthe said members station themselves along the routes and remain in contact with the event organizers and partici-pants to ensure a smooth event.The group also becomes a vital part of communications during more serious situations, like hurricane watches or evacuations."The North Okaloosa Amateur Radio Club members man part of the emergency operations center at Northwest Flor-ida State College," Barthe said."We also have an operation cell with the City of Crestview, and then people like Richard and myself can also man shelters when they're activated, if there's hurricanes, if there's other kinds of situations," Barthe said.The middle schools, which sometimes function as shelters during those times, are all outfitted with antennas and radios at the members' expense to facilitate ham radio help.Rodney Ryals, an NOARC member from DeFuniak Springs, was manning a radio that afternoon.He had talked to at least 12 people so far, but said that fewer people are on at the point."With it being midday, from about 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock ƒ with the sun out heavy, it interferes with some of the signals, but you can get some people here in there," Ryals said.He spoke to about 12 people from areas includ-ing Idaho,New Jersey and Texas.The club meets at 7 p.m. the second Thursday of the monthat Live Oak Baptist Church, Crestview, for club business, and 7 p.m. on thefourth Thursdays at the church for its "tech nights," a greattime to learn about the hobby.Visit the group's web-site,, or email for more information.

** Previous articles concerned thefirst and second parts of the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi. This addresses its remainder, as listed below. [Grant that I may not so much seek ...] To be loved, as to love: Every person I know wants to feel loved and accepted. Some will go to vast lengths to try to feel that emotion. Some engage in sexual promiscuity,join gangs to fill a hole of loneliness in their life, orenter into a destructive relationship and remain there, because being with a hurtful person seems better than being alone. There are alsothose who willlatch on to someone in a desperate attempt to feel connected, only to drive the other farther away. The best way to feel loved is by loving others. By loving others as Jesus did, you will receive love in return. Taking the attention off your own need, and focusing on the need of another will also satisfy your own desire. For it is in giving that we receive: This phrase is the very reason that we do things for others. When we give, we will receive even more than we give. Jesus said, Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.Ž This should not be your motivation. However, it will be your reward. It is in pardoning that we are pardoned: Too many think that holding a grudge or remembering an offense hurts the person who did it to us. Wrong!It does them no harm at all. It only drives anger deeper into your own heart. When you pardon others, you are pardoned as well. To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you,Ž Lewis Smedes, a Christian author, said. And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life: This is not a contradiction. The Bible says in a number of places that in order to find eternal life, the selfŽ has to die. In other words, self-centeredness, self-interest, greed, and all worldly attributes must be done away with in your life. Believing that Jesus is the Son of God is the way to eternal life. Living according to his teachings is the way to joy and fulfillment in this life. It is the way to spread Gods message of peace, grace, and love to the world. So, make the prayer of Saint Francis your own. Ask God for the courage, wisdom, and insight to live it. The Rev. Mark Broadhead is pastor at Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Crestview.FROM THE PULPITMake the St. Francis prayer your own Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, August 11, 2018 A5 FAITH M a r k B r o a d h e a d Mark Broadhead By News Bulletin staffCRESTVIEW „ There are three factors in main-taining and improving memory for seniors, according to Eden at Crestview assisted living community Executive Director Alan Woods: meals, medication and movement. It is the mis-sion of Eden staff to work with its residents in these areas. MealsFor seniors living at home, it takes a lot of time and effort to go to the store, buy groceries, come home, put them away, do the cooking and then clean up, Woods said. And so it becomes easy to resort to quick, less-than-healthy food options, which can negatively affect memory.Eden offers popular southern cuisine with meals approved by a regis-tered dietician, according to Woods. MedicationIncorrect medication dosage can have a detri-mental effect on memory as well.If memory is already an issue for an elderly person, keeping track of medication can become challenging and a con-cern for family members. Is mom forgetting to take her medicine? Is dad taking too much? Eden can take the worry out of medication management by allowing trained staff to keep its senior residents on schedule with the right dosages. MovementMovement encompasses three types of activity at Eden: physical, mental and social. Studies say, according to Woods, physical activity has a positive impact on mental acuity and memory. To this end, Eden provides physical activity like live music for dancing.Eden activities staff also works with residents to keep their minds sharp with art projects, word puzzles, bingo and card games. There is also a library.Finally, Woods said socialization is another important tool in main-taining mental faculties.If mom or dad is sit-ting at home all day long, they start to withdraw. If you dont use your social skills,Ž Woods said, memory starts going (along with) morale and attitude.ŽAnd so Eden provides group activities like a happy hourŽ to foster building relationships among the residents.The last Thursday of the month, Woods holds a community update at Samuels Roadhouse, 114 John King Road. Call 417-0103 or email alan@ to RSVP.Three keys to improving your memory retentionConstruction continues for Eden at Crestview, 575 West Redstone Ave. [NEWS BULLETIN STAFF] Alan Woods, Eden at Crestview executive director

It was a mild, wet spring in the South, great for growing SEC football players. Nick Saban at Alabama reloaded his talent and is the preseason number two again. During the recruiting season, the Discovery Channel decided to suspend Shark Week as the sharks were distracted watching Nick Saban Week. The SEC dominates college football. That doesnt look like it will end this year with Georgia ranked number one, Bama number two and Auburn number five. Football is akin to a religious experience in the South. Psychiatrists will tell you that football satisfies the primal human thirst for war. But government goes ahead and gets us in a bunch of wars too, just to be on the safe side. Its the modernday bread and circusesŽ to placate the citizens. The non-SEC contender is either Clemson or Oklahoma. Oklahoma got rid of the Confederate flag and changed the names of schools named after Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee. Then they surprised everyone when they legalized marijuana, showing theyd do anything to get a recruiting edge over Georgia and Bama. College football is a great business model. Brand loyalty is built in and labor is free. If it hosted a TV signing day, Id suggest for symbolism that it be held at Colonial Williamsburg. Coaches observe preseason practices and games from a high tower in case any players get any fancy ideas about escaping. In fact, the Alabama football team was about the only one where African-American players agreed to visit Trump at the White House after their win. But the optics would have been better for Trump if the first black athletes to visit him didnt toil for free in the fields of Alabama. College football continues to shine as NFL players continue to damage their brand by kneeling during the National Anthem. The only way a Southerner kneels during our National Anthem is if his bourbon flask slips out of his sock. Southerners believe that a silent protestŽ has no place outside a marriage. In other football news in this hyperbolic PC world the left has created, Papa Johns Pizza founder John Schnatter just got in trouble for purportedly racist comments and had to step down. Long associated with football advertising, the pizza chain is trying to do damage control on its brand. The Papa Johns lawyers even asked Peyton Manning to tone down his Southern accent until this all blows over. To sum up the preseason rankings, aside from the perennial powers like UGA, Bama and Auburn, South Carolina and Mississippi State surprisingly cracked the top 25 this year. Lore has it that Ole Miss redshirts Miss Americas, but they are down this year. They have yet to recover from their holy roller coach resigning after escort service phone numbers were found on his cell phone. It was profoundly embarrassing to the SEC when a head coach in a college town like Oxford, MS had to pay women to sleep with him. Being an SEC coach is a non-linear job, a feast-orfamine gig. You are either making millions landing five-star athletes or, if you dont, driving fans to games in hopes of them giving you a five-star rating on Uber. My favorite team, Vanderbilt, is academically pricing itself out of the SEC. Nashvilles liberal mayor had to step down after it was discovered she was paying her lover with tax money. Now Nashville can continue its liberal trajectory by becoming a sanctuary city for bad football teams. As a libertarian and freemarket person, I am all for paying these players. If you watch Last Chance U (and I suggest you do), you learn that most of these kids are overwhelmed by college and the workload of football. It blurs a universitys stated academic goals, is run by egghead college presidents, and structurally invites corruption. The NCAA, started in the Roosevelt era, has not seen the football since the kick off. They got so mad at UNC for cheating, they put Alcorn State on probation. Football schools need to admit that they lower academic standards for athletes. If you are Alabama, its hard to pretend to be an academic powerhouse when one of your most famous alumni is Forrest Gump. Ron Hart is a libertarian op-ed humorist and awardwinning author. Contact him at or @RonaldHart on Twitter.College football preseason peek The only thing more frustrating than trying to figure out school funding is a bad analogy. Two wrongs may not make a right, but lets indulge in both at once and see what happens.Imagine a person of limited means who receives food stamps to help make sure they have enough to eat. Now imagine how excited that person would be if you told them the state is now going to allow them to use food stamp money on rent.Im sure there are a few people who that would help. Maybe they live near a garden so they have plenty of food, so freeing up that dedicated funding source to allow another use might be helpful. I dont think that situation is very prevalent.That is the scenario being considered when Okla-homans consider State Question 801 in November. In their great wisdom and lack of desire to properly fund schools at the state level, lawmakers sent SQ801 to the people to decide.Currently, the state funding formula allows schools to use $5 million of local property taxes for a building fund. SQ801 would allow schools to divert those funds away from building needs to general fund expenses like teacher pay and textbooks.Legislators could have increased money to textbooks and other items, but instead they decided to let voters decide this issue.Im fairly certain that there will be anecdotes of school districts whose buildings are so pristine and well-maintained that their building funds are running over. Please remember that anecdotes are not evidence. My informed assumption is that an over-whelming majority of schools face roofing, heat and air, flooring or other issues every year that exceed what they can repair using the dedicated building fund. The Rainy Day fundŽ was all but dried up at the end of the past legislative session. The states savings account had been tapped out by bad tax policies that were not met with equivalent spending cuts.Thanks primarily to changes in tax policy, the state tax collections exceeded estimates by more than 11 percent in June. Higher oil and gas prices are helping, but the new tax laws are being credited with the better financial news for the state.Thanks to the excess, the state was able to add more than $380 million to the Rainy Day Fund. That fund is legally allowed to hold $750 million and had been drained down to about one-tenth of that during recent legislative sessions.I think its important to note there were signifi-cant law changes that contributed to the revenue the state collected in 2018 and continues to collect in the current fiscal year,Ž Office of Management and Enter-prise Services Director Denise Northrup was quoted as saying. Im glad we have begun recovering enough to actu-ally put back some of the money that was saved for an emergency and spent on an emergency of our own making. Its important to remember, we are not yet back to where we started pre-economic downturn,Ž stated Northrup. We are getting there, but Id like to see a broader recovery with all reporting categories beating estimates before declaring the state has fully recov-ered economically.ŽI hope she is able to make that proclamation soon. Until then, we can just enjoy the fact that we are saving money and not spending more than were bringing in.Kent Bush is publisher of the Shawnee (Oklahoma) News-Star and can be reached at isnt real reform K e n t B u s h Kent Bush R o n H a r t Ron Hart
