Committee members would be expected to fulfill a commitment of up to three years.The purpose of the committee is to make recom-mendations to the CRA board after reviewing grant applica-tions in their public meetings.Once we get the criteria set up for the four or five different grants that are available through the master plan, this committee will be the first line of defense for anybody that wants to apply for the grants,Ž Roy said at the Aug. 13 meeting.Crestview moves forward with grant review committeeCity Clerk Elizabeth Roy Council Vice President Bill Cox Councilman Doug Faircloth By Tom McLaughlin315-4435 | @TomMnwfdn tmclaughlin @nwfdailynews.comCRESTVIEW „ A sixth and seventh lawsuit alleging sexual misconduct against a patient have been filed against Crestview gastroenterologist Dr. Khalid Moussa.Attorney Gillis Powell of the Powell Powell & Powell law firm confirmed he filed the two new cases Tuesday. Gillis Powell is the brother of Dixie Dan Powell, who on May 18 filed sexual miscon-duct lawsuits against Moussa on behalf of five women.Dixie Powell has said as many as 21 women have iden-tified themselves as victims of Moussas alleged inappropri-ate groping. All the lawsuits filed thus far also name Moussas employer, North Okaloosa Clinic Corp., which does business in Crestview as North Okaloosa Physician Group, as a defendant.The allegations laid out in the latest complaints mimic those of the previous five. A woman states she was alone in Moussas office when he abruptly entered, began giving orders and, with little pretense, removed articles of clothing and touched the victim inappropriately.One of the women in the latest court filing states she visited Moussas office twice and was molested both times. Her second visit was a follow-up appointment after a colonoscopy during which the complaint claims Moussa fondled her breasts on the pretext of checking for pneumonia.Moussa remains under investigation by the Crest-view Police Department, but no charges have been filed against him.The investigation into Dr. Moussa is still ongoing, with nothing we can say as yet,Ž said Police Department spokesman Brian Hughes.Moussas license remains clear and active, according to the Florida Department of Health.All the lawsuits seek a judgment against the defen-dants and compensation for damages.Okaloosa County Circuit Judge Terrance Ketchel has issued a gag order limiting what those associated with the case can say to the news media.2 new lawsuits target doctorBy News Bulletin staffIn the article, Crestviewbased company addresses security threatsŽ published on page A4 of the Aug. 22, 2018 Crestview News Bulletin, Brot-ulas Seafood House & Steamer was just listed as Brotula.In the article Main Street Crestview flea market, meet and greet opened despite weatherŽ in thesame edition, the location ofRuck Up Cups was incorrectly stated.

Zadie was born in Chattahoochee, Florida to Obediah and Zadie Smith on January 1, 1926. She always said she got older before anyone else did! She graduated from high school in 1943 and began working at the Wainwright Shipyard in Panama City, Florida. There she helped recruit workers to support our troops during World War II. She became an official employee of the United States government in 1945. She met Charles on Panama City Beach after his return from thirty missions as a gunner on a B-17 in Europe. She thought he was a show offŽ, but he was the one for her. After marriage they moved to Anchorage, Alaska and she continued working at Elmendorf AFB. When Alaska transitioned from being a territory to a state, she converted all personnel records at Elmendorf. One of her favorite memories was attending the first Alaska State Fair. The next move was Ent AFB in Colorado Springs where she took a break from civil service. In 1968 the next assignment brought them to Eglin AFB. When Niceville became home, she resumed her Civil Service career at Eglin. She retired in 2003 as the Chief of Data Management and Support for Civilian Personnel. At her retirement she was recognized for her forty-nine years and nine months of service. After retirement, she enjoyed gardening and completing her daily to doŽ lists. Mom was always doing something. Relaxing was not in her vocabulary. She loved the beach and especially our family trips to Cape San Blas. She was a Niceville High School Football season ticket holder for over 35 years and attended all the football games on Friday nights. When her health began to fail she listened to the games on the New WFSH radio to cheer on her eagles. She kept up with politics and faithfully listened to her church service every Sunday. Her comfort at home would not have been possible without the care and love of her caregivers: Betty Crain, Terry Wood, Cara Edge, Maryanne Whittaker, Hannah Wood and Kim Broadus. A special thank you to Dr. Melissa Fisher who cared for Mom for many years. Thank you to Emerald Coast Hospice for providing support to us in this difficult time.

In every scandalous story, in every branch of the government, the one common theme is corruption. People in power are being caught using their influence to shield themselves from the laws they either voted to pass or swore to uphold. It seems like the dotted line of crimes, lies and cover ups are filling in every day and many of those lines lead directly back to President Donald Trump. Recent proclamations from our Twitter Feed in Chief and his advisors try to encourage President Trumps supporters „ who he knew all along would still support him if he shot someone on 5th Avenue in New York City „ not to give up their misplaced faith in one of the biggest cons in political history. His supporters see the news reports and court actions but they are given plausible deniability with dodges like: € Alternative factsŽ € Facts evolveŽ € Truth isnt truth.Ž € What you are reading and seeing isnt really happening.Ž And after his former campaign manager was found guilty on eight of 18 counts against him and his attorney pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations and implicated Trump himself in the crimes, the president tweeted, Michael Cohen plead (sic) guilty to two counts of campaign finance violations that are not a crime.Ž Trump swore in front of cameras that he did nothing wrong.Ž He told a FOX News reporter who was granted access to the president for an interview on White House grounds that he knew about the payments later onŽ and that they came from him personally. He said he was glad they didnt come from the campaign funds because that would have been a little dicey.Ž A little dicey? It doesnt matter whose funds you use to pay off marital infidelities with porn stars to influence elections, thats more than a little dicey. I know the FOX News apologists will try to show their viewers shiny things and talk about Barack Obamas tan suit and Hillary Clintons emails while someone chants lock her upŽ in the background. But there is no disputing the fact that more and more people from Trumps inner circle are going to jail for what they did to get him elected and now his attorney has implicated the president directly. This is the same man who has cheated on all three of his wives and bankrupted several companies. Yet, he has the full faith and trust of his supporters, many of whom consider themselves Christians. All presidents lie, but none of them have ever done it with the intentional force that Trump has to distract people from other more serious controversies of the day. Thats why I was shocked when listening to the Tony Perkins radio show this week when a woman called in and said she knew President Trump did a lot of things that were questionable,Ž but she appreciates that he brings truth back into politics.Ž After I almost drove my pickup into a ditch, I tried to call 911 but they wouldnt send anyone because they said irony was obviously already dead. You want to throw Hillary Clinton in jail but all of the felonies Trump has been involved in personally are just questionable.Ž I hope this lady is on the jury if I ever get put on trial. The first two members of Congress to endorse Trumps campaign are both facing corruption charges. Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen have all pleaded guilty or been found guilty by a jury. Yet, the Republican-controlled Congress still hasnt forced Trump to show his tax returns so we can know that he isnt compromised by one of Americas enemies. He is the first person to serve in the White House since Richard Nixon not to make his tax returns public. I doubt there is a three-year audit underway. Trump doesnt want to show them and, truth be told, Republicans in Congress probably dont want to pour more gasoline on the wildfire that appears to be consuming this administration. Steve Schmidt isnt blameless when it comes to the state of todays Republican party. In fact, he was the member of the John McCain campaign that gets the most blame for bringing Sarah Palin onto that ticket „ a person whose crazy antics and fake patronization of the religious right „ opened the door for a candidate like Trump to be taken seriously. Schmidt recently left the Republican party due to his disagreements with this administration and his frustration with senators and representatives who have compromised their morals and ethics to try to protect Trump. Schmidt said this weeks court action with Manafort and Cohen are proof that this administration is finally paying for its crimes. What it shows is a presidency in crisis, but also the absolute moral and character rot that meanders through American politics in this hour of our nations life,Ž Schmidt said. The bill is coming due for Trump with regard to his many years of lawlessness and arrogance.Ž It remains to be seen what the final chapter will be. No Republicans have stepped up to do anything about the Cohen charges or Trumps literal admission that he paid off mistresses and lied about it. I think voters are tired of this show. A Blue Wave in November would be a fast way to get the reality show that has taken over the White House canceled. I go back and forth on whether I expect to see a Blue Wave on the horizon. But seeing Republicans staying sheepishly silent after these revelations could add to the momentum across the aisle. Kent Bush is publisher of Shawnee (Oklahoma) News-Star and can be reached at kent. bush@news-star.com.Republicans sheepishly silent after recent revelationsSelflessness,Ž said President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Ike was replying to a question from Vice President Richard Nixon, who had asked him what he considered most important in selecting people to work with him, whether in war or peace, or the twilight ambiguous struggle known as the Cold War. Nixon in his memoirs writes that the president was silent for an extraordinarily long time before answering. The quiet continued for so long that the vice president wondered if the boss had forgotten the question. Silence is essential to serious reflection and analysis, can be golden, and clearly is hard to find in todays tweet-happy Washington D.C. Arguably, this is particularly true in intelligence agencies, where risks can be mortal and stakes very high … including national survival. Shortly after the 2016 election, the heads of the CIA, FBI, NSA (National Security Agency) and the Director of National Intelligence launched a public relations offensive to argue Russia, including President Vladimir Putin, meddled in the 2016 elections, including hacking Clinton campaign email. With great fanfare, they met with President-elect Donald Trump to present evidence behind the conclusions. With equal hype, the top spooks testified before the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee. The most plausible reason why the officials went public with lights, cameras and media melodrama has to do with self-protection in the contemporary political warfare of Washington. Politicians want to score points with anxious voters, and Putin remains one scary bear. Agency directors were defending their turf and themselves. The national media soap opera related to intelligence continues. Current controversy and consternation swirls around President Trumps removal of the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, who has become a constant harsh public critic. In earlier periods, intelligence work involved maintaining a disciplined silence, a rule worth remembering. Traditionally, intelligence work has involved balancing electronic and human surveillance. Today our government deemphasizes human agents. In World War II and the Cold War, that dimension was vital. It still is, as our British partners well understand. Current emphasis on public relations by officials is the other side of reliance on relatively automated electronic tools. On Nov. 3, 1959, President Eisenhower spoke at a special ceremony to lay the cornerstone of the new CIA headquarters in Langley Virginia. He emphasized that in this field Success cannot be advertised; failure cannot be explained. In the work of intelligence, heroes are undecorated and unsung, often even among their own fraternity.Ž In that era, there was no significant debate about the need for intelligence pros to operate in secret. In evaluating candidates for Congress this November, consider the degree to which they express maturity and selflessness … rather than political expediency … in addressing questions of national security.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, August 25, 2018 A5Teresa of Avila lived from 1515…1585 in what we know as Spain. She was widely known throughout the church for her writings about the contemplative life and prayer. This is one of my favorite writings by her: Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which to look out Christ's compassion to the world. Yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good. Yours are the hands with which he is to bless now.Ž This is by no means an attempt to put limits on our Lord. Instead, it is a call to faithful discipleship. If we desire people to recognize who Jesus is, if we want to see out Lords powerful work progress in this world, we have a role to play. It is we who are to spread the good news that Jesus taught. It is we who are to look at the world through eyes of compassion and love. It is we who are to go to the places of darkness and loneliness to show the light and love of Christ. We are to be instruments of his loving grace. Too frequently, faith is turned inward, focusing on Jesus and MeŽ rather than Jesus and Us.Ž I will admit that this is one of the drawbacks I find w hen I look at traditions that turn faith into a feeling. My difficulty with this is feelings are fickle, meaning a bad mood, or even what may be experienced as a poor worship experienceŽ can sour someone toward the faith. As long as one feels good, faith is strong. But what happens when tragedies strike? What foundation is there on which to stand? Instead, we are challenged to look beyond ourselves and learn to see life through the eyes of Jesus himself. Do you see injustice? Do you see rancor? Do you see forgiveness? Do you see grace being offered? Do you see love expressed? Walking with the Lord means looking outside of ourselves, reaching out to the hurt, the lost, the lonely. It means speaking up against injustice and cruelty. It means speaking for love, grace, forgiveness, and wholeness. Will you allow yourself to look at the world through the eyes of Christ … and respond as he would have? Will you allow your hands to be those with which he blesses people? Will you allow your feet to take you where Christ directs in order to take his light into the world? The Rev.

Okaloosa County Public Works Director Jason Autrey said the county does not own the road but the right-of-way.It was never an opened or county-maintained road,Ž Autrey said.Residents of Eagle and Falcon Way „ less than 1,000 feet from the front of Colt Drive „ were in a similar situation and set up a Municipal Service Benefit Units fund, which allows residents to have a county-maintained road by requiring them to pay for road improvements. The charge would be similar to an HOA fee.Autrey said there are spe-cific requirements that have to be met before the county would accept responsibility for maintaining the road. The road would have to be brought to "county stan-dards." Autrey said a paved roadway is the preferred option.Mare Creek Farms Homeowners Association President Mike Banks said he presented the option of a MSBU to residents at a meeting two years ago, but no one wanted to pay the extra money at the time.I dont know if I have a solution other than money,Ž Banks said.
