Sixty percent of voters approved the measure.The city already has about $300,000 allocated in next years budget proposal for the city managers office. Had the amendment not been approved, that money would have gone back into the citys general fund.Crestview voters also narrowly approved an amendment that will change the city clerks position from an elected post to one appointed by the City Coun-cil. The total was 51 percent in favor and 49 percent opposed.In Florosa, residents could see an improved fire depart-ment and enhanced services thanks to them approving an increase to the millage cap. With 76 percent approving, voters said yesŽ to increas-ing the cap from 1.0 mill to 3.0 mills.The district has operated at the 1-mill rate since 1974. According to the ballot measure, the possible increase in no way means the district will immediately raise the current millage to the cap.ŽOne mill equals $100 for every $100,000 of taxable property value.The Florosa Fire Control District had asked for taxpayers help to help pay for a new fire station and to hire paid part-time firefighters to help man the facility full time.In Cinco Bayou, 61 percent of the voters approved extending the term of Town Council members from two to four years.Referendums approvedSee ELECTION, A4 See PARKING, A4 See PIANIST, A4

He spoke about the issues with drugs hes facing on his street.Ive complained about it,Ž Edwards said. Ive talked to the mayor about it, and he agreed ... Weve got a problem.ŽOther important tasks discussed included a study of the flow of traffic on Highway 85, Title VI non-discrimination policy, and new zoning categories.The council members will place a low, medium, or high priority on each task and then, give their list to Growth Management Director Teresa Gaillard. PARKINGFrom Page A1 Goldstein made his per-formance an interactive experience for the children.After each piece, he would tell a story or ask the kids what they thought the composer was trying to portray.In between all three movements of Beethovens Sonata,Ž commonly know as the Moonlight Sonata,Ž Goldstein asked the kids to figure out the story behind each movement.Goldstein completed his performance with a jazzyŽ piece by Leonard Bernstein.He then asked the kids if they had questions, and over 20 hands went up.I want you to teach me,Ž one student said.Goldstein said he would have to practice like him, five hours a day.Although Goldstein couldnt teach all of the kids, he allowed them to come by the piano oneby-one and take a quick look at how it works.In 2017, Goldstein formed an organization called the Emerald Coast Music Alliance.I always had this vision ever since I became a citi-zen of this country ... what can I do to make a change other than playing in Carnegie Hall, which I did and its great,Ž Goldstein said.Although Goldstein has played in quite a few popu-lar concert venues, he said his passion extended further than extraordinary venues like Carnegie Hall.That passion led him to create an organization that centers on bringing music to under-served places in communities---places like schools, n ursing homes, mental facilities, and many other locations where classical music is not often performed. Goldstein said in order to perform the concerts for free, the organization relies on donations from citizens. He also has fellow musicians that will perform concerts to raise money for the organization.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, September 1, 2018 A5 FAITHIt can be very easy for us to get caught up in the stream of life in which our society says, Busier is better.Ž It is as ifwe have to justify our existence and worth by how busy and productive we are. It does not seem to matter that we become exhausted to the point of near collapse. Even in our recreation we become tired. It takes time to recuperate from the vacation we just took because we ran all over the country, or all over the world. If we constantly run ourselves ragged and do not take time to rest more than the 6-8 hours we allow ourselves at night, we will eventually fall apart. Our attitude will suffer, our attention span will diminish, our productivity will falter, and our personal relationships will start to fall apart. Jesus said, Come to me all you who are tired and I will give you rest. I will show you how to take a real rest.Ž This is a call to Sabbath rest„ holy rest. Rather than a call to take time off from work so you can run around and become more exhausted, it is an invitation to sit and be still; to ponder and think; to pray and to meditate; to thank God for the goodness of life. At the very beginning, God said on the seventh day, It is finished.Ž God was done with creation, but he was not done creating. On the seventh day, even though there was much more to be created, God stopped working and rested. And God made the rest holy. Jesus hung on the cross and said, It is finished.Ž He gave up his spirit and rested for a while. But his work was not over. He came back to life and is still alive and active in this world and in peoples lives. Both declared It is finished,Ž and both then completely rested from their labors for a while „for a whileŽ because they continue to be active in the world today. If God took time to rest, if Jesus took time to rest, who are we to think that we are stronger „ or more indispensable „ than they, that we cannot take time or make time to rest? That sounds a little blasphemous to me! There will always be more work to do. There will always be more places to visit. But for now, allow yourself to declare It is finishedŽ and then take time to respond to Jesus invitation to take a real reast. The Rev. Mark Broadhead is pastor at Laurel Hill Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Crestview.FROM THE PULPITRest is as important as being active M a r k B r o a d h e a d Mark Broadhead

** A6 Saturday, September 1, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin OPINION ANOTHER VIEW There has been a lot of talk in social and mainstream media about the skills gap and how we should promote the idea of steering our children, especially those who are soon to leave school, toward a skilled trade vs. a college career path. There is nothing wrong with choosing the four-year college degree, as in some career fields, it is necessary. But seriously. Something needs to be done about the current situation that involves a massive short-fall and lack of skilled tradesmen. The number of job vacancies announced in the fields of manual labor is astounding. We need to address the issue that some have with entering into these particular fields of employment. I recall years ago when I was leaving school, that it was common for some people to opt for an apprenticeship in electrical, plumbing, general contracting etc. It was the situation where you start at the bottom, at minimum wage, learning a trade from those above you, and work your way up. Sure, it meant you normally got the most menial jobs, but you were learning something valuable that could provide you with a steady income, presumably for the rest of your life, and then you could comfortably retire at 65 years old and enjoy your golden years. With the current shortage of tradesmen, the rates that can be charged for their services and indeed our wait times for service, steadily increases. Apprenticeships are not the golden egg that they were once considered to be. The old adage of starting from the bottom and working your way up is just not that attractive these days. Truth be told, most of us encourage our children to aim high and work for what they want. But in order to get that diploma, they suffer the burden of insurmountable debt. Even with the degree, many of them end up back at home with their parents, working entry-level jobs. As the market becomes flooded with diploma-holding students, employers can pick and choose who they want from such a large pool of applicants. I say, remove the stigma from blue collar jobs and encourage young people, and even those who are not so young, to learn a skilled trade. Have them fill some of the, supposedly, millions of positions that are now available. Not to say they could not go to night school for that diploma or chose to complete school online if they wish in order to get a degree, but at least they would be earning a wage and building on their skill set and selfesteem while working at the same time. If we are not prepared to do this and encourage young men and women to explore this option, then the amount of jobs that are being sent offshore, that were once American owned, will almost certainly continue to grow.

I loved him as a war hero and a fellow American who served his country in an astounding way. Few people in our country will ever accomplish all that McCain accomplished in his life. He served his country in the military, suffered as a prisoner of war and became one of the most respected United States Senators in our nations history. He also came to my hometown of Inez, Kentucky when he was campaigning for President in 2008. I am told the one sight he wanted to see up the road in our town of Martin county was the house that President Lyndon B. Johnson visited in 1964. Johnson put our county on the map and one of our families as the poster childŽ of American poverty. He and his entourage visited a family with the promise of lifting them and all poor American families out of poverty. The man he visited died about as poor as or poorer than he was the day Johnson visited him. John McCain had a good heart to come to Martin County. He respected our poor county enough to consider that our votes were important enough to extend some effort and energy our way. I have to appreciate anyone who shows this kind of respect for average folks. Ive been to the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Its a stately, regal place and a national treasure. The campus is unreal and to be buried in that special cemetery is only a place where our nations most honored and respected will ever be buried. Ive never heard of a Prisoner of War that wanted to be caught and tortured. All POWs are caught as best as I know. Being a POW is not a vacation or anything pleasant that anybody would ever want to endure from everything Ive ever heard or read about. My wifes grandfather was a POW in the Philippines. He suffered at the hands of the Japanese for four very long years. He was forced with 80,000 others to walk the 65 mile Bataan Death march and barely survived it. Thousands died on that walk. All in some way were horribly abused. His imprisonment was something he couldnt emotionally talk about. When he finally got back home to the United States he weighed less than 90 pounds. When he got home he was met by his wife and two daughters one daughter that was not quite four years old that he had never seen before. He moved his family to Long Island where he worked construction for a long time. He never received any parades. He was never elected to public office nor did he ever run for office. He lived a quiet life, died of lung cancer at age 65 and was buried by his family and friends who celebrated his life but without any national attention. His name was Lyle Harlow. He was a Prisoner of War. He was an American hero. If you watch or watched Senator McCains funeral I strongly suggest celebration and admiration of a great American. May the celebration of his life be symbolic of Lyle Harlow and thousands of other Americans who suffered as POWs. Many never made it back to America alive. Or, they made it home and gave their lives building buildings, cars, farming or raising good and decent American families. Possibly, for a little while, all of us as Americans could just shut up and stop insulting and hurting each other. I realize in political rhetoric its all about the Limbo, how low can you go it seems. Its not making us better in America. We will forever hear the sound bite that came from the lips of Senator McCain about President Barack Obama when one naysayer of Obama was critical and McCain corrected her saying, No Maam hes a decent family man, citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and thats what this campaign is all about.Ž Surely, heaven and earth all applauded and were astounded that day by John McCain. May it be that kind of speech and behavior that wows us and charts the course of this nation. Glenn Mollette is an American syndicated columnist and author. Whats your view?

** Crestview News Bulletin | Saturday, September 1, 2018 A7 PATRIOT PAGEHonoring those who labor on Labor Day By Kaylin Parker 682-6524 | @kparkercnb kparker@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW „Its that time of the year that workers all across America will enjoy a three-day weekend.Some families will barbecue or spend a day at the beach. Some might even attend the fireworks event at Twin Hills Park.Many will spend time relax-ing and enjoying Labor Day with family and friends. But this article honors the labor-ers of our nation for whom the holiday is just another Monday in the office„ laborers like firefighters, police officers, dispatchers, and emergency department employees.Lets face it. Working on any holiday is not ideal.It needs to be done. Some-one needs to be out there doing it. Thats all there is to it,Ž Crestview police officer Even Reynolds said.But, some who work on holidays find themselves enjoying the day with their work family.I came out of the military, and it goes right along with it„helping your fellow people,Ž Crestview firefighter Matt Baker said. Coming right into this, its the brotherhood and sisterhood. These people are like my second family.ŽWe are one big family here on the Emerald Coast,Ž emergency physician at North Okaloosa Medical Center Steve Noggle, M.D. said. Working on Labor Day means ƒ we are taking care of our men and women, our mothers and fathers, and their families who go to work every day. Thats a privilege.ŽIts rewarding,Ž Kimberly Huggins, a dispatcher at the Crestview Police Depart-ment, said. Everybody is just like a second family:ŽFirefighters, police officers, and EMS workers all agreed that Labor Day is busy for them because of the level of activity happening.Labor Day, also called the workingmens holiday, became a federal holiday in 1884 when Congress passed legislation after 30 states had already been celebrating.The U.S. Department of Labor website states that Labor Day, constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, pros-perity, and well-being of our country.ŽFor Jonathan McCleod, a city water operator, working on a day like Labor Day when others have time off isnt an issue because he enjoys his job.I love working with the water,Ž McCleod said. ...Its just another day. Normally on holidays, I try to check wells early.ŽKelly Thomas, also a Crest-view firefighter, talked about why she continues to do her job even when she has to work holidays.It really takes a special person to do this, and we do it for community,Ž Thomas said.Another MondayMatt Baker, “ re“ ghter at the Crestview Fire Department, is no stranger to working on holidays, being a former military member. [KAYLIN PARKER/NEWS BULLETIN] Kelly Thomas and Amber Knicley are two of three female “ re“ ghters at the Crestview Fire Department. Both Thomas and Knicley will work a 24-hour shift on Labor Day. [KAYLIN PARKER/NEWS BULLETIN] Of“ cer Evan Reynolds prepares for his day of work. Kelley Kelley and Amber Green will both be working a 12-hour shift during Labor Day. Petra Johnson-Luke, a dispatcher at the Crestview Police Department, is pictured performing her regular work duties, as she will on Labor Day.

** A10 Saturday, September 1, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin LIFESTYLEBy Sean DietrichCRESTVIEW „ A Crestview man who regularly played his banjo downtown passed away Aug. 24. Ricky Banjo BearŽ Edenfield was a staple in the Crestview community.Writer Sean Dietrich remembers when he met the musician:You probably never met Ricky Edenfield but you wouldve liked him. He played a banjo downtown in Crestview. He was a big fella, thick-bearded, with a personality so jolly he made Santa look like a jerk. I saw him play. I remember it like it happened a few days ago.Whatcha want me to play?Ž he asked a few kids.Somebodys mother asked, Do you know Will the Circle be Unbroken?Ž Know it?Ž He laughed.He knew it. And he plucked through it like a man whose beard is on fire.Thats my memory of him. He played this music like he belonged in a different world. An older one.The world your greatgrandparents came from„long before 24-hour news channels and cell-phone-based entertainment.He was homeless for a long time, and it was hard on his body. He used a wheelchair. Once, he even died on the operating table from a col-lapsed lung.But he was a cheery son of a banjo.He had a way of looking at you that made you feel seen. And youd wonder about things for a few minutes while he played. Big things. Univer-sal things.Like, why are people home-less? And, is anyone truly without a home?I aint homeless,Ž Banjo Bear once told me. Got me a mansion. A nice one. It just aint down here.ŽThen, I saw him finger-pick the tune, Ill Fly Away.Ž And even though I never knew this man, I knew him. Just like I know all the verses to this song. Its a melody which sounds like a hymn, but isnt. Its more than that.Its a rural church, with wood floors. Where preach-ing is more like shouting, and the pastor rolls up his sleeves to pray for folks. Where miracles happen, but not the big kind. The little kind. Everyday miracles like babies, marriages, and second chances.His music was a funeral procession made of cars with headlights blaring. His music was salt peanuts in Coca-Cola, straw hats, and side-of-the-road boiled-peanut shacks.Like the peanut stand I stopped at last week, outside Dothan. The old man filled my bag until I needed a forklift to move it.Its on the house,Ž the man said. I paid him anyway.Ricky and his banjo werent playing for onlookers at all.He played for men who hunted at night with oil lan-terns, and women who could grow camellias in red clay dirt„and did.Women like Miss Flora, whose hair is whiter than Elvis Resurrection suit. Who still remembers when the biggest news in the universe wasnt Facebook politics, it was a war in Europe. It was Jackie Robinson. It was stand-ing in her front yard, staring at the night sky, while the televi-sion showed footage of a man walking on the moon.During the Great War,Ž Miss Flora said„tapping her foot to the banjo rhythm, this town had flags everywhere. Hanging in stores, churches, theatersƒŽ Ill just bet it did.I remember closing my eyes while the banjo rolled. I saw the old world. Our world. With hog head cheese, Hank Aaron, rag bologna, Hoagie Carmichael, and country stores.Like the Country Store, in Jefferson, Alabama„a creaky place thats been along High-way 28 since your ancestors used mule-wagons. Where you can still buy everything from Dukes mayo to plug tobacco.The music made me see farmland„the kind owned by families, not corporations. And the way the stars look over the bay. And big lunches. Sunday naps. Women who use talcum powder after showers. Witch hazel at barbershops. Gas-station clerks who bring their bloodhounds to work. And banjos.The instrument sounds like history. And it sounded good in his hands. He had a light touch.Few ever got to know Ricky. Fewer saw the little pallet where he slept during cold weather. Even fewer asked how he was doing. But he was ours. And so was his music.When he finished playing that day, I watched children applaud him.He told the kids: My father instilled four things in me, you wanna hearem?Ž YEAH!Ž The kids were eating out of his hand.PLEASE!Ž they shouted. TELL US!Ž He held up four fingers and said, Dont lie, dont steal, dont judge, and dont disrespect nobody.ŽHe was beautiful. And he finally got to see his mansion.Sean Dietrich is a blogger and speaker. Hes the writer of multiple books including his Sean of the SouthŽ series. His website is seandietrich.com. This article is reprinted with his permission.Banjo Man got to see his mansionBy Brian Hughes Special to the news BulletinCRESTVIEW „ Sometimes the old ways are still the best ways. For downtown merchants and patrons, seeing Officer Gabe Dunlap on foot patrol evokes warm „ and posi-tive „ memories of the friendly town policeman on his beat.As the Crestview Police Departments downtown patrol officer, a new position established at the beginning of August, his beat is Main Street, Wilson Street and the side streets that form Crestviews historic heart.His district includes the citys government center and the seat of Okaloosa County, the courthouse, the Florida A&M pharmacy school, nine eateries, multiple stores, and the coun-tys geographic center, which is in the middle of the Main Street Eats outdoor food court.While Dunlap periodically responds to calls for service elsewhere in the north end of Crestview, most of his shift is spent strolling the streets of the historic district, visiting with merchants, and chatting with shoppers and diners. The new beat was a response to a request by business owners to beef up the districts secu-rity through a regular, physical police presence. His assignment has been met with applause from downtown merchants and patrons alike.We certainly appreciate having a regular police presence downtown now,Ž Main Street Crestview Association Director Sandra Wilson said. I know its an added sense of security, especially for female visitors.ŽThe patrolman said hes come to know and respect Main Streets many regulars, includ-ing the late Banjo Bear,Ž Ricky Edenfield,a genial wheelchair-bound banjoist who used tosit at a favorite corner strumming his instrument, waving to cars and greeting passersby.Understanding some of downtowns less fortunate denizens has also come with the beat, Dunlap said. He has come to know its homeless and itinerant people, responding to complaints if the yre panhandling, but making sure their rights are protected as well, checking on their welfare and pausing to chat as he encounters them during his patrols.Dunlap said he really enjoys the new assignment and is pleased with the overwhelmingly positive reception hes received.Patrolman walks beat in downtown CrestviewRick Eden“ eld played banjo on Main Street in Crestview.
