This is the first national WEA test message sent to WEAcompatible cell phones and the fourth EAS nationwide test sent via broadcast media.The WEA test will be sent through IPAWS at 1:18 p.m. Cell towers will broadcast the WEA test for approximately 30 minutes. During this time, cell phones that are switched on and within range of an active cell tower should be capable of receiving the test mes-sage. FEMA will send one WEA message to mobile devices and because the WEA message is a presi-dential alert, users will not be able to opt out of receiving the message, even if they have deacti-vated alert notifications in their mobile devices. The WEA message will display on mobile devices as a presidential alert and will read:This is a testof the National Wireless Emer-gency Alert System. No action is needed.Ž€ The WEA system is used to warn the public about dangerous weather, missing children, and other critical situations through alerts on cell phones. It allows customers whose wireless provider participates in WEA and who own a WEA compatible wireless phone to receive geo-tar-geted alerts of imminent threats to safety in their area through unique tones and vibration.€ WEAs can be sent by state and local public safety officials, the National Weather Ser-vice, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and the presi-dent of the United States.€WEAs can be issued for three alert categories imminent threat, AMBER, and presidential.€ WEAs look like text messages, but are designed to get your attention and alert you with a unique sound and vibration, both repeated twice.€ WEAs are no more than 90 characters, and will include the type and time of the alert, any action you should take, as well as the agency issuing the alert. € WEAs are not affected by network congestion and will not disrupt texts, calls or data ses-sions that are in progress.€ Mobile users are not charged for receiving WEAs and there is no need to subscribe.Nationwide alert test coming By More Content NowTip of the WeekFrom a cough that wont go away to a sore throat they caught from the classroom, children and their vulnerable immune systems can fall victim to common illnesses quicker and more often than adults. However, while these health issues are typical, it is not always easy to iden-tify what they are when symptoms strike.According to pediatrician Dr. Nina Shapiro, an important part in understanding a childs symptoms is also being prepared to help fight back with the right tools at home and to know when its time to bring them to see a doctor.Alleviating some of the uncomfortable symptoms at the first signs of sick-ness or discomfort will help your child get back to being a kid faster and can aid their long-term health. When pain and discomfort do strike, knowing the signs and symptoms of some of these common problems can help determine the best course of action. 1. Ear painEar pain can be caused by myriad issues, including swimmers ear, an existing cold, an ear infection or tooth pain traveling up the jawline, among other things. An over-thecounter pain reliever, elevating the childs head when sleeping and a warm compress on the ear may help lessen the discomfort. However, if the pain continues to worsen, is accompanied by a high fever and/or swelling and pus exists, the best option is to visit a pediatrician for an in-office exam to deter-mine the exact cause. 2. ConstipationAccording to a recent survey commissioned by Pedia-Lax, nearly 45 percent of parents with children between ages 2 and 11 noted their children experience constipation at least once a month. Recognizing the symptoms of constipation can be tricky depending on the childs age „ especially if they cant voice their issue. Luckily, there are physical and emotional symptoms to look out for, including less than three bowel movements a week, stomach aches, a decrease in appetite and increased irritability. Shapiro sug-gests opting for a medicine thats formulated specifi-cally for children versus an adult formula. To help prevent constipation, encourage your child to eat a well-balanced, fiber-rich diet, drink lots of fluids and speak up whenever they feel they need to use the restroom. 3. Hand, foot and mouth diseaseHand, foot and mouth disease is a pesky, highly contagious illness often seen in young children „ especially during the beginning of the school year when children are back inside in close quar-ters. It is caused by a virus similar to the cold virus and, as the name suggests, can involve the hands (primarily the palms), the feet (primarily the soles) and the mouth. Telltale signs are sore throat due to sores on the palate and the lips, sores on the palms and sores on the feet. In general, the throat sores tend to give the worst of the symptoms, leading to inability to swallow, severe throat pain and fevers. Kids that refuse to eat or drink due to throat pain can be at risk for dehydration. The treatment plan includes pain medications, drinking cool liquids and rest. 4. Pink eyeFrom the bus to the class-room to the playground, children often spend a lot of time in close quarters with their friends. While sharing is an important lesson to learn at a young age, kids will often, unfor-tunately, share their germs too. Conjunctivitis, com-monly known as pink eye, is spread through handto-hand contact, which can transport the highly contagious condition to the eyes. While symp-toms like itchy and watery eyes could be mistaken for allergies, watch out for increased yellow or green discharge and a change in color to the whites of the eye, which may indicate pink eye. Over-the-coun-ter eye drops and a warm compress on the eyes can help soothe the irritation at home but, given how fast pink eye can spread to family and friends, its always best to head to a doctor for medication. Sometimes doctors will prescribe an antibiotic eye drop if the infection appears to be bacterial and not viral.When sickness strikes, its important to be armed and ready with not only the knowledge of the common symptoms of these pediat-ric health issues, but also the best treatment options so your child can get back to the playground in no time.

And how would the school notify you in the event of emergency?€ Bring extra medication, special foods, or supplies your child would need if you were sepa-rated overnight€ Complete a backpack contact information card and tuck one in your childs backpack and your wallet.

Unfortunately, some of the lessons many will learn the hard way from Hurricane Florence are repeats from past storms. Here are two of them: 1. Only 3 percent of North Carolina homeowners have flood insurance. The figure is 9 percent in South Carolina and 2 percent in Georgia. I havent seen the figures for some of the other states Florence threatens to inundate, but I would be surprised if they are much higher. I wrote about these figures in July because the next time a hurricane hits Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes here in Louisiana, the residents here will find themselves in the same predicament that is about to play out along the East Coast. Thousands of homeowners in Florences path are going to face the brutal reality that their homes „ for many, their greatest investment „ have been destroyed and that they will get little or no financial help to rebuild. Homeowners insurance does not pay for flood damage. The National Flood Insurance Program is the only institution that does that „ but only for people who buy policies. Americans are about to hear the tearful pleas of Florence victims who lack the financial means to rebuild their lives. The trauma will play out in Congress, where lawmakers from flood-stricken communities will work to introduce taxpayerfinanced bailout packages, but those that manage to pass wont come close to making people whole. The same misery resulted after the 2016 floods that inundated much of Louisiana, causing an estimated $10 billion to $15 billion in property damage. The most money each uninsured homeowner could expect from federal aid was $33,000, while the average payout was closer to $10,000. And, unless something changes drastically, the same sad scenario will occur here the next time a major storm hits. In Terrebonne and Lafourche, only about 30 percent of homeowners have flood insurance. Maybe they will listen and learn from unfortunate Florence victims who will reflect on their losses and, in many cases, question how it could happen in place that never flooded before. 2. The U.S. flood insurance program remains broken. More than 400,000 homeowners in the Carolinas, Georgia and Virginia have flood insurance, with $106 billion in combined coverage. R.J Lehmann, a flood insurance specialist with the R Street Institute, a Washington-based think tank, told the McClatchy news agency that if 10 percent of those homeowners suffer flood damage, the program could face at least $10 billion in claims. Anybody who has followed this issue knows Congress has delayed reforms for years, and one of the results is that the National Flood Insurance Program is more than $25 billion in debt. Lawmakers tried in 2012 with the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act, which sought to align policies cost with the actual risk of flooding. Congress scuttled the law, however, after some homeowners in south Louisiana and other flood-prone areas saw costs rise from a few hundred dollars a year to $20,000 or more. The House passed a measure in November that includes some reforms, though Louisiana lawmakers expressed concerns about potential price increases.

Follow him on Twitter @CourierEditor.Learning through repetition K e i t h M a g i l l Keith MagillFall is usually a great time of year. We stop fighting each other over politics and race, and go back to not liking each other because of what football team we support. Oh, wait „ now the NFL has combined the two, and there is no respite. As a result of feckless National Anthem protests and Nike deciding to pay muddled malcontent Colin Kaepernick millions to be the tattooed face of the company, viewership of the NFL is down another 13%. After being down last year when all this began, NFL viewership is now at a 10-year low. The numbers are particularly down in the South. We lead the country in football and love of country, followed closely by meth, diabetes and obesity. But SEC football is king. And the only reason Southerners kneel at a football game is if our bourbon flask falls out of our sock. We love the National Anthem too! Whats not to like? The song has bombs in it and rockets going off. It is like the Fourth of July, the day we celebrate the last time we had all ten fingers. The Kaepernick protest is not heroic. Kaepernick almost never gives interviews since he looks bad when asked simple questions. He idealizes socialism and Castro, whose brutal regime murdered up to 33,000 Cubans. I guess his college, U. Nevada at Reno (the Fighting Blackjack Dealers), didnt teach history well. He just Tweets and re-tweets others. He has tattoos all over his body and neck, so hes not exactly a long-term thinker. Kaepernick was a washedup quarterback on a losing team who had no real contract renewal prospects. Like Democrats, he turned conjured up grievances into a business. He clearly has his right to complain, but he does not have the right to lie about the facts. As the Manhattan Institutes Heather MacDonalds FBI data studies point out, the Black Lives Matter movement is based on and perpetuates a lie. While they are 6 percent of the population, black males represent 40 percent of all cop killers. A police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be shot by an African-American male than an unarmed black male is likely to be killed by a cop. Social justiceŽ on that for a moment. So why did Nike hire Kaepernick? Are they tone-deaf leftists living in a Portland bubble? Do they hate middleAmerica so much they want to put Kaepernick out there in our faces and label him a hero, absent any facts to support it? It will be easy to boycott Nike, since all their shoes and products are made in the same Chinese sweatshops as Adidas and other comp etitors. In fact, Nike spends about $10 billion a year on celebrity endorsement deals, one-half of their expenses. And Lebron or Kaepernick wearing their shoes does not make the shoes any better, just more costly. If you are enough of a dope to buy a pair of shoes because you think a sports star wears them of his own volition, for no pay, then you get what you deserve. There are other forms of sports entertainment, although the NFL is about to fumble its government-sanctioned monopoly on professional football. I prefer college football anyway, and by college footballŽ I mean the SEC. Major League Baseball is heading into the playoffs. Baseball players dont kneel during the National Anthem, so I have resumed watching the Braves. But where did all those long beards come from? MLB looks like the Union playing the Confederacy. I love when the free market speaks. No government, no intervention, just capitalism punishing idiots and bad ideas. The stock market cut $4 billion off Nikes value the day the Kaepernick deal was announced, and viewership continues to decline for the NFL. Fans do not want to be preached to by some barely educated jocks who dont appreciate this country. We respect the flag. Hell, even Cleveland Browns fans take their paper bags off their heads for our National Anthem. It is traditional to stand for any countrys national anthem. At the Olympics, the French not only stand for Germanys national anthem, out of habit they put up their hands in surrender. I thought the Vietnamese delegation took a knee during our National Anthem, but it turns out they are just short. We keep picking at the scab of race and its divisive. Rosanne Barr was fired over race. Maybe to bring the nation together, we should have her sing the National Anthem at an NFL game. It will bring everyone to their knees„ and let the healing begin.

The President even tweets about it (or tweets it, depending on your personal stance!) Perhaps the most frequent place we encounter it is social media. Especially on Twitter and Facebook, its superbly simple to glance at something and share it a second later. So how do you distinguish what is true? Even more importantly, how can you, just a humble Crestviewian, combat the dissemination of fake news? As a librarian, its my sacred duty to make sure I help people sift through the sludge and find answers. I am hardly qualified as a social media expert, but I do know a thing or two about tools to help locate quality information. One fantastic tool to truth-check a post or email is to look it up on www. snopes.com. Snopes has been around since the mid90s, and is widely regarded as one of the best factcheckers available. Trust me, you didnt actually get emailed by a Nigerian prince in need of some wired cash. To round out options for general fact-checking, similar sites include www. hoax-slayer.comand www.truthorfiction.com. Likewise, if its politically charged news, you may want to use the Pulitzerwinning www.politifact. com. Politifact uses a meter to distinguish what is true, a half-truth, and false. Factchecker.org is another resource freely available to assess your political readings. Using both can help sieve various biases. Its hard not to be lured in by fear-mongering social media posts; however, with a few searches, you can help be a crusader for quality information. Oh, and you wont have to worry any more about being cursed for15 years if you dont immediately forward a post to everyone and their mother.

She is with the OCSO Crime Prevention Department.She said the classes have taught hundreds of women self-pro tection. Previous attendees have also come back for refresher courses, and brought others with them:mothers and daughters, friends and relatives."It's a great, empowering class, and it's great for women to come out and feel empow-ered to learn how to protect themselves," she said.At the Crestview session, attendees warmed up for a few minutes, then instruc-tion began.They learned how to main-tain their balanceduring an attack. For instance, standing on one leg and lifting the other up for leverage while swinging at an assailant makes it easy for them to pull you off balance.In addition to physical defense, Amanda Powell, Gordon Martial Arts program director, covered the potential issue of women ignoring their instincts out of politeness."(Never) ignore that alarm that goes off inside of you, because we try to be so nice to people and give people the benefit of the doubt ... Do not feel bad for feeling uncomfortable or feeling like something's wrong ... If you feel odd, if you feel an alarm, you should listen to that alarm."She gave an example of being at a gas station and someone approaching her suspiciously. It is important to call attention to that person and identify their intentions.To illustrate her point, she backed away rapidly andheld up her hands up in front of her, palms outward, loudly saying, "Hi sir, how you doing? Can I help you with something?"Call attention to them, she said.It may be weird, but safety is priority."Let him worry about why I'm being weird, right? I'd rather be overly precautious than underprecautious," she said.That person may stop and check on you, and ask, "I'm just throwing this trash away „are you okay?" she said. But if that person doesn't acknowledge you andkeeps moving toward you, start backing up and preparing yourself.Powelltold attendees if they see other people, especiallyother women in a dangerous situation, never be afraid to call the cops or feel guilty for identifying someone to authorities."It is so much better to send somebody out there to inves-tigate or to do their portion of their job, than to not do any-thing and then there's an issue later on," she said.Womens selfdefense seminars teach empowermentGordon Martial Arts instructors lead a warm up session before the womens self-defense class Sept. 15 in Crestview.

** A8 Wednesday, September 19, 2018 | Crestview News Bulletin The Associated PressCLEARWATER „ It was a rough week for Floridas beaches, with a resurgence of red tide on the Gulf Coast and returning feces-related prob-lems in South Florida.Red tide returned to beaches on Saturday along Pinellas County on the Gulf Coast, bringing with it countless dead fish. In South Florida, the Florida Department of Health in Miami last week raised the number of noswimming alerts to seven beaches because of elevated levels of bacteria that can lead to urinary tract infections and other problems.The Tampa Bay Times reports that county employees and contractors worked through the day and night to remove dead sea-life from beaches of Pinellas County.There are just too many to count,Ž said Kelli Levy, director of environmental management for Pinellas County. Theyre stacked up.ŽWaters on the gulf side at Fort De Soto Park were teacolored, causing officials at the park to waive entrance fees. The water also was discolored at Madeira Beach, Redington Beach, St. Pete Beach and Pass-a-Grille.At a foot race in Pass-aGrille, only about a quarter of the expected crowd „ 225 people „ showed up for the race. The others stayed away from the smell and respiratory irritation caused by red tide.Jenni Schmidt was one of the volunteers who passed out masks to participants since the aroma was so bad.It was hurting my lungs,Ž Schmidt said. Getting out of the car it just assaulted you.ŽThe toxic algae bloom over-ran Floridas southern Gulf Coast this past summer.

The last toxic bloom in the Gulf happened between 2004-2006The Miami Herald reports that some South Florida beaches have struggled in recent months with numerous advisories warning swimmers of feces-related problems in the water.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Wednesday, September 19, 2018 A9By Jim SaundersThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE„ Saying First Amendment arguments raised by opponents are irreconcilable with our con-stitutional history,Ž Attorney General Pam Bondis office Monday asked the Florida Supreme Court to overturn a ruling that could block at least three proposed constitutional amendments from going on the November ballot.Bondis office filed a 44-page brief in a battle focused on proposed amend-ments that the Florida Constitution Revision Com-mission approved this spring. Leon County Circuit Judge Karen Gievers ruled Sept. 5 that the proposals should not go on the ballot because they improperly bundledŽ unre-lated issues.In doing so, Gievers sided with arguments raised by former Supreme Court Justice Harry Lee Anstead and fellow plaintiff Robert J. Barnas, who contend the bundled propos-als would violate voters First Amendment rights. That contention stems from voters potentially having conflicting opinions about issues in the same proposal.But the brief Monday assailed that argument, describing it as a novel con-stitutional theory.Ž The brief pointed, for example, to state and federal constitutional changes that bundled differ-ent issues.In short, our constitutional history is replete with exam-ples of situations in which voters have been asked to vote up or down on bundled provisions addressing distinct rights and issues„ including the ratification of the Constitution and the First Amendment,Ž the brief said. This longstanding histori-cal practice militates against any suggestion that the First Amendment requires arguably unrelated provisions to be adopted on a piecemeal basis.ŽAnstead and Barnas last month challenged six pro-posed amendments approved by the Constitution Revision Commission, a 37-member panel that meets every 20 years and has unique power to place measures on the ballot. Gievers decision in the case focused on three amendments because the other three were subjects of separate chal-lenges at the Supreme Court.But the brief filed Monday by Bondis office indicates the case could lead to invalidating more than the three amend-ments addressed by Gievers. A footnote in Gievers ruling said her findings apply to all 6 of the proposed amend-mentsŽ but that because of the other challenges (no) further opinion will issue here as to those amendments.ŽThe three proposals blocked by Gievers included a measure that would ask voters to ban offshore oil drilling and vaping or the use of electronic cigarettes in workplaces. Gievers rejected the suggestion that the oil-drilling and vaping proposals could be considered related.The court is unconvinced by the respondents (states) argument that offshore oil and gas drilling and vaping are germane as they are both environmentally related,Ž she wrote. These measures are independent and unrelated and do not constitute a com-prehensive plan of revision and cannot be imposed upon the voters as a unit. Voters cannot reasonably answer the statutorily required yes or no question ƒ without potentially being deprived of their First Amendment constitutional right to cast a meaningful vote on each independent and unrelated proposal.ŽState asks justice to clear way for amendments

Air Force officials have not yet com-pleted an estimate of what the increase would cost.If approved, the addition of more than 70 new squadrons would bring the Air Force to a size not seen since the height of the Cold War, when there were 401 operational squadrons.Over the last 17 years we have had the luxury of being the dominant power focused on violent extremism,Ž Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson said Friday during a preview of the study. We have to be cleareyed about the world in which we live.ŽThe Air Force is too small for what the nation is asking us to do,Ž she said.Wilson and Gen. David Gold-fein, the Air Force chief of staff, described a complex array of challenges including extremist movements, cyber threats, a resurgent Russia and, most importantly, Chinas rapidly improving air capacity. Bei-jing has made massive military investments, improving its long-range bomber capacity and establishing new outposts in the Pacific, and has churned out new weaponry.That makes it even more important for the United States to maintain its edge in air oper-ations, the officials said. The Cold War was a bipolar world,Ž Wilson said. This is a much more complex situation.ŽTo meet that challenge, the Air Force must increase the number of bomber squadrons from nine to 14 and tanker squadrons from 40 to 54, the study found. Operational squadrons include bombers, airlift, cyber, combat search and rescue, and other functions. Squadrons vary in size, but range from about 100 to 1,200 people. A fighter squad-ron, for example, includes about 24 aircraft.O cials: Air Force must growAir Force F-35As are pictured in this 2016 “ le photo.

** Crestview News Bulletin | Wednesday, September 19, 2018 B1 LIFESTYLEJustin Lee Thompson nds acting success on hit TV showBy Annie Blanks 315-4450 | @DailyNewsAnnie ablanks@nwfdailynews.com CRESTVIEW „ A local man has found fame on the small screen after appearing in the hit USA Network tele-vision series The Purge.ŽJustin Lee Thompson, 21, grew up in Crestview and dabbled in theater at Crest-view High School. After graduating, he became a photographer and traveled the country, but eventually found himself on the set of the hit TV show, which was filming in New Orleans.He described his casting on the show as dumb luck.ŽI had applied for whatever movie was happening in Pensacola that they were filming and I didnt get it,Ž he said. But someone saw my picture and wanted me for this commercial, and then I ended up getting on (The Purge).ŽThompson said he was first cast just as a background character but was then upgraded to a featured background position, and has seen himself in the first three episodes of the series. Hes unsure if his character will be killed off in the remaining episodes „ which focus on a fictional America in which once a year all crime, including murder, is legal for 12 hours „ but his grandmother, Patricia Ann Thompson, is thrilled hes been featured at all.I saw him on this TV show Tuesday night, he was just sitting on the bus and they showed his face and then whenever they go to kill someone he gets up and goes to the window,Ž she said. Im just so proud of him.ŽThompson said he's also appeared in other projects, including NCIS: New Orleans,Ž Tell Me Your Secrets,Ž America RejectŽ and a music video for a U.K. rapper named Ebenezer. As for his future career in acting, Thompson said hes still acting and traveling and is open to whatever the future has in store for him.Im always looking forward to working on new projects and new opportunities,Ž he said. Its all about being kind and sym-pathetic to everyone around you, not just because you have to be nice but because its the right thing to do.ŽThe PurgeŽ airs onehour episodes at 9 p.m. Tuesdays on the USA Network.Crestview native getting PurgedJustin Lee Thompson is a photographer from Crestview who landed a role on the USA Network television series The Purge.Ž [JUSTIN LEE THOMPSON/CONTRIBUTE DPHOTO] Justin Lee Thompson, of Crestview, is appearing on the USA Networks hit TV series The Purge.Ž [JUSTIN LEE THOMPSON/CONTRIBUTED PHOTO] By Del Stone Jr. Northwest Florida Daily NewsThe new bridge, "Jaws II" and Hurricane Ivan figure heavily in this collection of photos taken in Navarre from 1960 through 2004.

** B2 Wednesday, September 19, 2018 | Crestview News BulletinBy Kaylin Parker682-6524 | @kparkercnb kparker@crestviewbulletin.comDESTIN „ Combat wounded troops, caregivers, service dogs and active-duty military were among the large crowd on hand Saturday for the 6th Annual Soldiers on the Water event hosted by the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors.Natalie Sayles, who lives in Atlanta, has been coming for three years. She served as an Army combat medic for 17 years and was medi-cally discharged in 2012 after breaking both her legs during training.Sayles said she enjoys the camaraderieŽ among the veterans.Ive been fortunate enough to take care of myself medically, so I like to try to extend that favor ... through conversation, through talking,Ž Sayles said.Soldiers on the Water features a free fishing trip for veterans or active-duty troops who have combat-related injuries.It was the second time around for Elrades Wright, a 12-year Army veteran, who suffers from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He said the event is like therapy.ŽI have depression from pain and stuff like that, so when you get out here, its relaxing,Ž Wright said. It takes your mind off that. ... Its therapeutic being around other veterans that are going through similar things.ŽJoe Morgan, chairman of Soldiers on the Water, said one difference this year is that veterans caregivers could go fishing.Caregiver Myria Britt had the largest catch „ a 28.8pound mackerel „ on her first catch of the day.Britt takes care of a retired Army captain suffering from PTSD. She decided to make the five-hour drive from Atlanta after hearing about the event because it sounded awesome.ŽI would tell anybody about this event,Ž Britt said. It was really exciting and a lot of fun.ŽRegistration began at 7 a.m., and the fishing trip lasted about four hours. Owners of 11 fishing boats volunteered their time and fishing gear.This years event attracted more than 150 combat-wounded troops and caretakers „ the larg-est turnout ever.In addition to the fishing, participants were treated to a free dinner at Brotulas Seafood House and Steamer, which prepared their catches.Those who didnt go fish-ing could take a ride on the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise or tour the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park on Oka-loosa Island.Morgan said Soldiers on the Water is a way to say thank youŽ to those who have sacrificed for their country.One of the reasons that made me do it that very first time I did it, someone said, its about me, and I get that all the time,Ž Morgan said. It wasnt a show. It wasnt a pity party. It was about me, and that means something.ŽIts about meElrades Wright (right) and other veterans watch as “ sh are prepared after their “ shing trip with the 6th Annual Soldiers on the Water.

I roll out of bed pretty late in the morning because its usually the only day I get to turn the alarm off and just chill. I fix breakfast, usually something that takes a little bit more time than Im typically afforded on a week day. Were talking eggs and bacon instead of cereal. Waffles instead of cereal. Pancakes instead of, well, cereal. And when all is said and done, I crash on the couch to recover from a full day of college football with a full day of NFL football. I love the NFL. Regardless of rule changes and protests, I love the NFL. It was my gateway to the rest of the sports world. But watching the games on Sunday, its hard not to think its inherently inferior to high school and college games when it comes to overtime because NFL overtimes can end in a tie ball game. Nobody likes ties. Not players, not coaches and especially not fans. How are you supposed to celebrate/mourn a tie? Green Bay and Minnesota battled to a 29-29 tie Sunday after Packers kicker Mason Crosby missed a 52-yard field goal at the end of regulation and Vikings kicker Daniel Carlson missed field goals of 49 and 35 yards in overtime. And that was the second tie in as many weeks. Pittsburgh and Cleveland tied 21-21 in Week 1 after both had special teams gaffes in overtime; Steelers kicker Chris Boswell whiffed on a 42-yard attempt and Browns kicker Zane Gonzales got his 43-yard attempt blocked. As a fan of the sport, how are you supposed to feel after that? There have been seven ties in the NFL since 2010. There have been 11 since 1990. You know how many ties there are in college and high school? Outside of freak weather-related games that get called off, zero. And the games are better for it. High school teams get to set up at the opponents 10-yard line in overtime and trade scores until someone falters. College teams set up at the 25, but the principle is the same. In Okaloosa County alone, weve already seen a pair of epic overtime contests. Choctaw beat Milton in Week 2 on Tom Kiehns OT field goal, and Navarre edged Crestview 41-35 after Josh Carter came up with the OT interception and Dante Wright scored from 9 yards out in Week 3. Both games finished with awesome dog pile celebrations. Both games finished with closure. Both games were simply better because they didnt end in a tie.Monday Morning Quarterback: Overtime rulesChoctaw vs Milton football. [MICHAEL SNYDER/DAILY NEWS] Malcolm Hancock comes up with a fumble recovery against Holmes during their game at Niceville. [PHOTOS BY MICHAEL SNYDER/DAILY NEWS] By Sam Grubenhoff 315-4476 | @GHoffNWFDN sgrubenhoff@nwfdailynews.comOK, area. I see you bounc-ing back from a 1-8 week with a 6-3 showing, I see you.And two of those losses came in intra-area contests. Nice work. A round of golf claps for everyone.Were finally starting to see some separation now that were entering the midpoint of the season, and the contenders are who we thought they were. Navarre and Baker have yet to lose. Crestviews only loss is to Navarre, and Nicevilles only loss is to a top Alabama team. The getting is good at the top.As Ive said in the past and will likely continue to say until the end of time, please keep in mind these rankings will be based on the success each team is having and not necessarily head-to-head matchups (because we know Baker is great but probably not great enough to beat Crestview). No 1: Navarre (4-0); Last Week: 1The way I see it, Navarre was the biggest winner of the week.Not only did the Raid-ers beat down on Choctaw, 53-7, but also Niceville and Crestview won. That makes the overtime win against Crestview more important in the eyes of the FHSAA playoff system and the end-of-season matchup with Niceville (always a classic) all the more interesting.And with three offensive plays of at least 40 yards and Jaydin Antonios 85-yard punt return, Navarres scoring attack is humming ahead of its date with 3-0 Pine Forest on Friday. No. 2 Baker (3-0); Last Week: 2Potential teams beware; Baker is twice as deadly coming off a bye week.Junior McLaughlin and Co. had two weeks to prepare for Rutherford after Joshua Christian pulled a Fat Amy and decided Hmmm, better notŽ and canceled its Week 3 contest. McLaugh-lin put that time off to good use and ripped Rutherford for 227 rushing yards and four total scores, including a 74-yard punt return. No. 3 Niceville (3-1): Last Week 4Eagles running back T.J. Pope offered up a little bulletin board material for the area after gashing then-undefeated Holmes County Central for 153 yards and a score Friday night to rebound from a lopsided loss to Clay-Chalkville in Week 3.Clay-Chalkville, theyre the No. 2 team in Alabama,Ž he said. So were not gonna complain about anything cause coach (John) Hicks wants us to have a tough schedule like this cause, as hes said before, if we had a schedule like anybody else, wed be 4-0 right now.ŽFor those teams in the Anybody elseŽ category, youve been warned. No. 4 Crestview (3-1); Last Week 3Crestview loses its hold on in the top three despite a 74-0 victory against the International School of Pancakes ƒ er ƒ Broward.Coach Tim Hatten said earlier in the week more competitive opponents pulled out of the game during the scheduling pro-cess, creating the need to play lowly ISB, which may end up hurting the team when the FHSAA figures how many playoff points the game is worth.Nevertheless, the Bulldogs showed out. Running back Jay Stanton, who is making his name known this year, scored on runs of 38 and 63 yards while rock-ing the Bulldogs slick new gray unis. No. 5: South Walton (2-2); Last Week: 8Its amazing the differ-ence a week can make.Drake Roberts continued to tear up the passing game, going 28-of-34 for 347 yard and three total touchdowns, while Cade Rowland came down with a last minute inter-ception to seal Phil Tisas first victory against Marianna. No. 6: Freeport (1-2); Last Week 5Sure, the victory came against a struggling Walton team, but Brandon Siples Put. On. A. Show.The junior led the Bulldogs to their first victory against Walton since 2006 with 243 yards of offense, two rushing touchdowns, a receiving touchdown and a passing touchdown. Shaun Arntz knows how to coach a running back. No. 7 Rocky Bayou (2-1); Last Week: 7The Knights still own a winning record, but they didnt play a week ago, and me thinks that week off wont exactly help them against Baker. The Gators hung 81 on Rocky Bayou a year ago. No. 8 Choctaw (1-3); Last Week 6Outside of a 62-yard touchdown pass from Jimmy Hart to D.T. Grant, Choctaw didnt do much of anything against Navarre. No. 9 Fort Walton Beach (13); Last Week: 9The Viking offense sput-tered for the second week in a row, and the defense allowed 351 yards of offense.No. 10 Walton (0-4); Last Week: 10The Braves matched their season scoring total with six points against Freeport. They have now scored 12 points in four weeks.PANHANDLE PIGSKIN POWER RANKINGS: Week 4Navarres Dante Wright breaks free from Choctaws Jason Palacios on a long kick return by Wright during their game at Choctaw.

According to statistics from the Okaloosa Supervisor of Elections website, https://enr. electionsfl.org/OKA/ Summary/1923, only 35,254 voted in this primary, or 26.5 percent of those eligible. What a sad turnout. There were other issues on the ballot, besides Governor, U.S. Senator and Congressional Representatives. There were three school board positions, as well as local issues. Less than 30 percent of eligible voters decided the issues for our county and cities. It is very easy to vote in Okaloosa County. There are early voting days as well as convenient polling places near our homes. Voting is a privilege, one that our forefathers fought a war over. When King George III was on the throne, he and Parliament ruled the ColoniesŽ as the U.S.A. was known at that time. The colonists, who were British citizens, had no say in how their country was ruled, how much tax they paid and how the taxes were spent. Taxes were gathered and spent the way the king and the British Parliament wanted, and in some cases taxes went into the royal coffers. The slogan in the colonies became, No taxation without representation,Ž meaning the colonists wanted a say in where there taxes were spent and taxation was one of the main points for the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain. The city of Crestviews voters decided to hire a City Manager who is answerable to the elected City Council rather than the taxpayers. There were 1,683 who voted Yes; 1,132 voted No. I looked up salaries and the median salary for a City Manager is about $86,376. Along with the City Managers salary, there will be other costs, such as a pension, city vehicle, personal assistant and so on (https://www. payscale.com/research/ US/Job=City_Manager/ Salary). I dont live in the city, however, for a city that has 23,567 residents (more or less), this seems a huge expense to undertake. A total of 551 votes decided the city would take on this financial responsibility. When taxes, building permits and other city service rates rise, remember that to have a voice in taxation and other city matters, one must vote. We are fortunate to live in a country where we can freely vote. We need to make our voices heard by taking the time to cast an informed ballot.

A SPECIAL PUBLICATION OF THE Wounded warrior gets the gi of puppy love from a Crestview wounded warriorBy Kaylin Parker 682-6524 | @kparkercnb kparker@crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW „ This story began with one wounded warrior and his wifes desire to help another wounded warrior by donating their puppy to become a service dog. On Friday, David McCaulla, a veteran from Mis-sissippi, met Crestview residents Jennifer and Benjamin Garcia, who donated a Dogo Argentinian puppy that will be McCaullas service dog.After joining Operation Heal Our Patriots (OHOP), a religious organization centered around healing for wounded veterans and their spouses, Benjamin, a 14-year Army veteran, said he wanted to do something for other wounded warriors like himself.One thing I learned about being at OHOP is theres actually a lot of people out there that care about you, and a lot more people like us that are dealing with the same issues,Ž Benjamin said. I just want to pay it forward.ŽJennifer began researching different organizations, and they decided to donate one of their puppies to become service dogs. Benjamin said he knows from personal experience the positive effect these dogs can have on wounded veterans.These dogs are real special to me because they can touch your soul,Ž Benjamin said. ...I think these dogs have a way of detecting when you have a flash-back or go into a deep depression, and then they try to give you extra love.ŽAlthough it wasnt an immediate result, Jennifer was finally able to make contact through Facebook and found a veteran in need of a service dog.Pay it forwardBy Renee Bell 682-6524 | @cnbRenee reneeb@crestviewbulletin.comCRESTVIEW „ J.J. McDaniel, author of the book Papyrophilia: The Story of a Baseball Card Collector,Ž has part of his personal baseball memorabilia collection on display at the Crestview Public Library through October.Two copies of the book are also avail-able for checkout from the librarys local authors shelf. When it came to to picking the items featured in the exhibit, McDaniel chose them based on their historical signifigance.I included autographed items, game-used memorabilia, and a ticket stub from the 1960 World Series,Ž he said. PapyrophiliaŽ hit number 6 on Amazons list of the Top 100 books in the sports category when it was released last year. The book is a tribute to the 1956 Topps cards his father, Jerry McDaniel, collected. Its Jerrys favor-ite set of all the cards he has collected.My dad loved that year because he is a Yankees fan,Ž J.J. said. Its also fromthe year Mickey Mantle won the Triple Crown for the Yankees, and the team won the World Series against their in-state rival, the Brooklyn Dodgers.One thing that distinguishes those cardsfromlater setsis that it was the last year the Topps Chewing Gum-designed cards used artists paintings. The company began using photography afterwards.Baseball card author provides library displayBy Kaylin Parker 682-6524 | @kparkercnb kparker@crestviewbulletin.com CRESTVIEW „ Hold on tight because a new entertainment center is coming to Crestview with one unique quality„mechanical bull rides. Jeff Gainey, life-long Crestview resident and retiree, has been wanting to open a family-friendly entertain-ment center for about 15 years, but it wasnt until two years ago that his dreams became a reality. Jeff and his wife, Tina, gathered ideas for games and researched different locations with a decent amount of traffic. They found a building they were comfortable with, but hope to expand into a larger building where they can get more mechanical bulls to keep people from waiting in lines. Opening a family oriented entertain-ment center is largely a Gainey family effort. Jeff and Tina Gaineys two sons will be working there full time along with their daughter-in-law. Ride Hard NWFL will have multiple forms of entertainment including mechanical bull riding for adults and children, performance games like bean bag toss and skeeball, bounce houses, and a small arcade. Along with the 40 to 60 games, Jeff said they will also be hosting gaming events and contests for cash prizes like an annual mechanical bull riding competitions for up to $2,500.Get rodeo ready at Ride Hard NWFL coming to CrestviewJ.J. McDaniel, left, stands with his dad, Jerry, at a recent book signing. Jerry bequeathed his entire baseball card collection to his son because he wanted to see him enjoy it while he was alive. That collection inspired J.J.s second book. [SPECIAL TO THE NEWS BULLETIN] This is the only known 1956 Jackie Robinson salesman sample in existence.

** E2 Wednesday, September 19, 2018 | Crestview News BulletinMcCaulla served in the Army Infantry for nine years and currently suffers from post traumatic stress disorder as well as back and leg issues. The donation from the Garcia family comes after McCaulla had been searching for a service dog, and he said he was very gratefulŽ for the donation and company.The biggest thing with the service dogs is some-bodys there with you all the time,Ž McCaulla said.Although McCaulla received the puppy Friday, the dog will go through training with Britnee Kinard, founder of the non-profit organization The SD Gunner Fund in Claxton, Georgia. Kinard said she trains about 12 to 15 service dogs a year for wounded warriors and special-needs children.The puppy donated by the Garcia family will go through 8 to 18 months worth of training, depending on the dogs capabilities. Kinard said she was glad that Jennifer reached out to her about donating this rare breed to become a service dog.Were excited to take on this challenge of learning and training this breed, and really helping try to make her wish come true because she really wants this dog to be a service dog,Ž Kinard said.McCaulla will be pres-ent for part of the training and plans to move closer to the training location. PUPPYFrom Page E1The collection was 45 years of thoughtful accumulation and careful conservation by a care-taker of baseball history. He bequeathed his lifes work to me while he was still alive (so he could see his son enjoy them),Ž J.J. said.After receiving that inheritance, J.J. began a quest to collect a museum-quality super set (every example known to exist, including all variations), from a 1-cent wrapper through twosalesman sample cards. Sample cards were used to sell products in 1956 and discarded after use, which makes them rare. His dads Topps set is the subject of the third section of Papryophilia.Ž Over the past year, the book became a guide for other collectors, some of whom have contacted J.J. online.As a result, he said, I have been invited to serve as the resident expert on topics like vintage Yankee baseball cards and 1956 Topps set-building. On Facebook, I advise more than 1,000 collectors in three different forums.ŽWhen asked if baseball is still Americas national pastime, he said, Foot-ball has surpassed baseball in popularity. With that said, in my opinion, base-ball is a national treasure that should be celebrated above all other pastimes.Ž He said it is one of the most detailed, with game statis-tics being listed on cards as far back as the 1800s. BASEBALLFrom Page E1Jeff said the goal was to create something centered around fun for families of all ages in Crestview, something Jeff believes is lacking. Other children that are around, they have nothing to do, no where to go to expel their energy,Ž Jeff said. ...We want the kids to have a variety of things to do not just one thing in particular.ŽTina said she looks for-ward to bringing a variety of entertainment to fami-lies in Crestview. Im excited that were finally able to do some-thing for our community,Ž Tina said. Its been a long-term dream for my husband and myself.ŽJeffery Gainey, 17, said he looked forward to opening the business and hopes to use his knowledge of the younger culture to help bring in more traffic. He also helped his parents with the logo design. My dream is to make my parents dreams come true because theyve done everything for me,Ž Jeffery said.Ride Hard NWFL is expected to be open by Nov. 1 and is located in the Northview Plaza on North Ferdon Blvd next door to Pizza Hut. Currently, Ride Hard NWFL is accepting applications for entertain-ment specialists which can be found at www.RideHardNWFL.com. GAMESFrom Page E1
