A12 By PAULA KELLEY 682-6524 | @cnbpaula firstname.lastname@example.org Beginning July 1, not only will tobacco use in any form be prohibited on all Okaloosa County School District properties, but possession, including inside vehicles at after school events, will also be prohibited. Parents who pick up their children wont be allowed to smoke in their cars on school property and visitors to football games and other after school events wont be allowed to smoke or chew tobacco products on campus. If someone is seen using tobacco at an event we will ask them to stop, and if they choose not to we will have to take appropriate actions, school district Deputy Superintendent of Operations Rodney Nobles said. Crestview High Schools principal, Bob Jones, said the policy of zero tolerance for all tobacco products will be an adjustment and he anticipates that some will have difficulties with the transaction. I am personally very happy with this new policy, Jones said. There is going to be a transition period as we get our fans used to this. We may lose a few fans who cannot be without tobacco for the length of a game. The big issue down the road will be visiting fans from out of Okaloosa County who are unaware of the policy. We will have to work hard By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian email@example.com There were some unusual phenomena at Baker School Tuesday during Family S.T.E.M. Night. Paper clips hovered in mid air, pierced plastic bags didnt leak, tossed eggs didnt break, volcanoes erupted, and kids chatted to each other over a phone system powered by a sack of potatoes. And if that wasnt enough, it snowed in May. Forces were indeed at work, but during the event, they were simply the benevolent forces of science and nature, harnessed by the 42 members of the high school S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Club. The nearly two dozen discovery stations that spread throughout the cafeteria and two adjoining courtyards were planned, staffed and equipped by the student club members, physics teacher Stacy By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian firstname.lastname@example.org Crestview city leaders took the rst tentative steps toward rescinding or suspending some of the citys impact fees by engaging a consultant who is expert in the process. Unplugging the fees, a tool wielded by city government to have developers pay some of the burden their developments place on city infrastructure, is a cumbersome process, they learned. Earlier this spring, the city council received a recommendation from Administrative Services Director Mike Wing and Public Works Director Wayne Steele to put a moratorium on the transportation impact fee. The city is now contemplating eliminating the public school concurrency fee and proportionate fair share as well. Jack Dorman of J.E. Dorman and Associates will advise the city on amending Crestviews comprehensive plan so that eliminating school concurrency and fair share will be accomplished in accordance with state regulations. Fortunately, the rules have been amended in the citys favor. In 2011, the Legislature made some signi cant changes to growth management laws in Florida, Dorman said. Most of those changes are to our bene t. Dorman said the 2011 legislation encourages communities in Florida to reduce impact fees unless the local government retains transportation concurrency, Dorman said. Concurrency is a state-mandated policy that assures that city facilities and services, such as streets and water service, are available concurrently with development. According to Working with Proportionate Fair Share, a Florida Department of Transportation guide, fair share was established by the Legislature in 2005 as a method for mitigating the impacts of development on transportation facilities by the cooperative efforts of the public and private sectors. This method can potentially be used by a local government to determine Tobacco to be banned at Okaloosa schools Visitors at events will be prohibited from tobacco use as well fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School STEM -ulating fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School STEM STEM STEM STEM STEM STEM STEM -ulating -ulating -ulating -ulating -ulating fun at Baker School -ulating fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School -ulating fun at Baker School fun at Baker School fun at Baker School -ulating -ulating STEM -ulating STEM -ulating Family night explores science, technology, engineering and math PHOTOS BY BRIAN HUGHES | News Bulletin Cheyenne Brannon explains to interested Baker School parents and students how she wired 36 potatoes in series to produce a 3.5-volt power source for a pair of telephones.

There are also going to be some coaches who are go ing to have to make some big adjustments with their smokeless tobacco habits. In 2011, the Florida Legislature changed stat ute 386.209 to allow school districts to restrict smok ing on school properties to designated smoking areas where adult employees and visitors were allowed to use tobacco products. The Okaloosa County School Board voted in March to ban tobacco from all school properties, in cluding parking lots. Cigars, pipes and any type of cigarette will not be permitted, including electronic or e-cigarettes. Smokeless tobacco in any form, including dip, chew and snuff, is also prohibited. The new policy not only ensures compliance with the Florida Clean Indoor Air Act, but also sets a pos itive example for students, Nobles said. The ban will include use of tobacco at a school-sponsored event or a school trip. School district employ ees will also not be allowed to bring any tobacco prod ucts on campus. We as educators are models for our students and we teach them the adverse effects of tobacco use, Nobles said. This expansion on our tobaccofree school zone is a natu ral development of that. We must emulate what we are teaching. Nobles also cites the wellness of county em ployees as a factor in the change and said that sev eral programs are avail able to assist in cessation and prevention. We implemented an employee wellness pro gram several years ago and we know that helping to reduce tobacco usage will eventually have a posi tive effect on insurance premiums, he said. Tobacco Free Florida and the Northeast Florida Area Health Education Center with support of the Florida Department of Health have information and resources available and we have their posters up in all our facilities. I understand that they also offer (nicotine) patches and the cessation gum to help support tobacco users in their goals in their pro gram to quit. Patrick Strong, presi dent of the Okaloosa Coun ty Educational Support Professional Association, said that the change in policy has not caused any controversy with members so far. The main thing is that we want to make sure that there is a cessation pro gram in place for school employees and there are several that have been made available and they are cost-free, Strong said. Were keeping a close eye on it, as we dont have the written policy manual changes with the disciplin ary action that the board would take against an em ployee who violated the change. But we arent anticipat ing any trouble with this; as we all want to set a good example for our kids. The difculty is going to come in informing the general public like a parent pull ing up to pick up their kids while they are smoking in their car. The school board plans to place new signs at the entrances to all school properties informing visi tors of the tobacco ban. The signs are planned to go up in June. Weve already started employee notication and changes to student handbooks and, of course, well have an nouncements over the PA system before football games, Nobles said. Nobles said that no tifying the public of the policy change is key to the change. This is another step and we have to educate the public that weve taken the step, Nobles said. Burlison said. Elementary and middle school stu dents and their parents visited the stations where the kids got hands-on ex perience in the world of science. We did a lot of Googling to learn how to do the demonstrations, Burlison said. The S.T.E.M. kids brought in the parts. Its the high school kids help ing the younger kids. In the east courtyard, a geyser of mint-flavored Diet Coke shot into the air after club member Nata lie Booker pulled the pin that released a stack of 10 Mentos into the bottle. Her fellow member Josh Griffitts explained the re action to a gaggle of young observers. Its a chemical reac tion, Josh said. Theres a chemical in the Mentos that doesnt get along with a chemical in the Coke. Second-grader Mitchell Caraway gazed in amaze ment as a plastic bag he had just perforated with half a dozen pencils didnt leak. His dad Charles smiled to see his son hav ing fun with science. He likes this kind of stuff, Charles Caraway said. He likes experi menting with stuff. Its cool and messy! S.T.E.M. Club member Morgan Lewellen said as she pulled out the pencils, which served as stoppers for the holes in the bag, and the water splashed into a roasting pan. A bunch of the kids are go ing, Oh, cool! I think theyre really enjoying it. Freshman Cheyenne Brannons potato-pow ered phones were a popu lar station. She plugged the leads from a voltme ter into potato, showing it produced .5 volts. Her phones were powered by 36 spuds producing a total of 3.5 volts. I have a bunch of amps because I wired it in series, she said. You can do it with pretty much any fruit or vegetable. One po tato is about .5 volts. An onion is about .4. A zucchi ni is .3, so you would need a lot of them. Other experiments and demonstrations included making candy cells, build ing toothpick bridges with marshmallow connectors, mixing Kool-Aid colors, discovering how the fric tion of a sandpaper-cov ered ramp keeps toy cars from rolling, harnessing stored magnetic power, and making slime, PlayDoh and leaf impressions. As in the real world, sometimes the experi ments went slightly awry. A faulty seal sometimes kept the Mentos-in-Diet Coke-powered rocket from launching, but still sent up a spectacular plume of zz to the delight of observers. Demonstrating how ar resting the momentum of a thrown egg stops it but doesnt break it, Malcolm Grifth and Eileen Brown had to become eet-footed as they dodged errant eggs that missed the bed sheet they held up. Despite an impressive wind-up, sec ond grader Grace Mc Queen totally missed the sheet and splattered one of her eggs over Eileens right foot. But it was all in the name of making science and technology fun. They love it! Kayleigh Patterson said as she and Ivory Smith helped young er kids make baking soda and vinegar eruptions in a beaker. The kids are re ally nding it interesting, Cheyenne said after a chat with a youngster over her potato phone network. Its fun helping the younger kids learn about science, club member Mary Quison added. Its turning out very well, Burlison said. Were going to do this again next year. Visit our online pho to gallery from Baker Schools Family S.T.E.M. Night at www.crestview bulletin.com. a developers fair share of costs to meet concurrency. The developers fair share may be combined with public funds to construct improvements to satisfy concurrency. Based on the require ments in the statutes, the city must eliminate trans portation concurrency in order to accomplish the desired objectives re garding impact fees and proportionate fair share, Dorman said in an April 17 letter to Wing. However, while concurrency will be eliminated for roads, level of service standards must be retained. Transportation impact fees would not be entirely eliminated, Wing said. We propose to remove Proportionate Fair Share as a method of paying for growth, Wing explained in an email. Transportation impact fees in some form would remain as the long term method of replacing used road capacity. Dorman stressed that any changes to the citys comprehensive plan must be approved by the state, but the plan must be ad justed in order to elimi nate impact fees that are included in it. Actions taken by the council cant conflict with the comprehensive plan, Dorman cautioned. Eliminating the citys school concurrency, in place since 2008, will also be eased by the 2011 leg islation, which allows communities to opt out of interlocal agreements with local school districts. The city would then re vert to a 2003 agreement, which was never rescind ed, that does not require concurrency. But because the concur rency is also enshrined in the citys comprehensive plan, it also must be elimi nated through the states plan amendment process. The city also must execute a new interlocal agree ment with the Okaloosa County School District, Dorman said. We have already been in discussion with the school district regarding a new agreement, Dorman said in his letter to Wing. Dorman assured the council that there would be ample opportunity for public comment on the process, including public hearings and workshops with the Local Plan ning Agency and the city council. The city coun cil has previously heard from area developers on the negative impact and financial burden the fees have placed on new development. Some critics have said that Crestviews impact fees have driven away de velopment, though local of ficials, including city plan ner Eric Davis, have said there is little evidence to support those claims and some fees are necessary to assure services keep pace with growth. In neighboring DeFu niak Springs, however, officials have seen an in crease in development when their impact fees were eliminated. We were getting sti fled with fees, DeFuniak Springs city council mem ber Mack Work said. We put a moratorium on all of our impact fees and we essentially got nine new businesses as a result of that. Our argument is es sentially the opposite of Crestviews. BRIAN HUGHES | Crestview News Bulletin Earthmovers have cleared several acres of land for the Taylor Farms development on Antioch Road. The city is seeking to eliminate some of the impact fees developers pay to offset the burden new projects places on city infrastructure.

On a warm, sunny Saturday, the aroma of freshly smoked barbecue and the laughs, squeals and steady thump of kids playing in an array of bounce houses drew a crowd to Baker Schools Doug Grifth Stadium for a day of food and fun. Sophomores of the Baker School Class of 2014 hosted the April 28 event to raise money for their senior year, Baker School science teacher Stacy Bur lison said. Most of the work was done by the class presi dent, Malcolm Grifth, she said. Hes amazingly organized. Other ofcers involved were Sophia Chi athia, Brandon Engler and Kais Doud. They worked to get local business spon sors and contestants. Local barbecue pit masters got to work bright and early to assure a good supply of succulent pulled pork, beef brisket and fall-off-the-bone ribs were ready by the start the blast. Their efforts were also entered in the barbe cue competition. The rst place winner was Big Uns BBQ. Michael Brewer took second place and Bryson and Laura Hill placed third. We had a wonderful turn out, Burlison said. By ANGEL McCURDY NWF Daily News Representatives of the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge and the Sasquatch Zoo near Crestview are continuing to negotiate the sale of the zoo. There are still a lot of kinks weve got to work out, said Debbie Mattox, the zoos owner. Its going pretty good. Were not that far away from it, but as for now, no decision has been made. Board members with the wildlife refuge met Monday evening to discuss a proposed contract Mat tox brought to them last October. Mattox offered to sell the zoos property to the refuge along with the 100 animals living there. Each time they have a board meeting we get a little bit closer, Mat tox said. Hopefully, well work something out. Amanda Wilkerson, di rector of the Wildlife Ref uge, said the board hoped to meet with Mattox on Friday to discuss the con tract in more detail. According to one of our board members and our attorney, logistically with permitting and pa perwork for a nal sale, it could be another six months before anything is decided, Wilkerson said. Mattox said the num ber of visitors to the zoo has increased signicant ly since a recent article in the Daily News. That has enticed her to keep her hand in the zoo a while longer. A lot of people are say ing they dont want the zoo to go away, so were trying to work something out where we could have it both ways, like retaining the zoo and have the reha bilitation there together, Mattox said. We might go a different route, but we still want to work with the refuge. Wilkerson said the pro posed contract requires the refuge to keep three of Mattoxs longtime ani mals and to let Mattox work through a transition period. Its our understand ing, the way she wrote her proposal, that she would stay on for the next three years and continue to work with the animals, Wilker son said. But well always be glad to have her. Jim Melvin, president of the refuges board of directors, said Mattoxs new proposal has not been discussed among board members. For now, the refuges attorney is nego tiating with Mattox.

Crestview News Bulletin | A5 Saturday, May 12, 2012 Every day we must make choices. Many times stories are made up to pass the blame on to someone else. Even comic strips poke fun at the way people try to pass off responsibility for the choices they make. A comic strip which is no longer produced, but was my all-time favorite, was Calvin and Hobbes. Calvin is a precocious little boy who is always accompanied by his best friend Hobbes. Hobbes is a tiger that is alive when no one but Calvin is around. Otherwise, Hobbes is a stuffed animal. Calvin is always getting into trouble and trying to nd ways out of it, while Hobbes is always trying to keep Calvin in line, often with little success. One day, when Calvin was at school, he was asked by his teacher: Did you ever read the history chapter I assigned? Calvin replied, I tried, Miss Wormwood, but the book publisher didnt use the proper print xative. Needless to say, when I picked up the book, all the letters slid off the pages and fell on the oor in a heap of gibberish. As Calvin approached the principals ofce, he said to himself, I think my excuses need to be less extemporaneous. Taking responsibility for their own actions doesnt sit well with many people. They dont like to admit that they have done wrong. As far back as Adam and Eve, we see a tendency for people to put blame on someone else for their own actions. In the story of creation and the rst sin eating the forbidden fruitAdam and Eve tried six different ways to avoid taking responsibility for the choice they made in disobeying God. First, they tried to hide their guilt by covering their nakedness. Second, they tried to run away from it by hiding from God. Third, blame was placed on someone else Adam blamed Eve. Fourth, they blamed God. Fifth, Eve blamed the serpent. And sixth, they blamed it on a misunderstanding, and Eve claimed she was tricked. Sounds like tactics that are still used by many people today. People dont want to admit their mistakes. Rather than claim responsibility for their own actions, they pass the blame on to someone or something else. We must take responsibility for our own actions because the choices we make are ours. And the choices we make will give us joy and blessings in life, or they will bring us darkness and hardship. The Bible says in Deuteronomy 30, See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, death and adversity. A choice has to be made. On one hand, there is life physical and/or spiritual. On the other is death physical and/or spiritual. The question is, Whats it going to be? Will you choose life? Or will you choose death? There are consequences for our choices. God makes a promise for making right choices: joy in life, prosperity in a manner of Gods choosing, and the blessings of the Lord. All you need do is choose to follow the ways of God. There are also consequences for poor choices: God says we shall perish. But if your heart turns away and you do not hear, but are led astray to bow down to other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall perish You see, the choice is ours. When we follow the ways of God, there is no need to try to place blame on others. Sure mistakes will be made, but they will be honest mistakes, not scheming or conniving or malicious. It is easier to accept responsibility for honest mistakes than it is for those that are intentionally dishonest. When poor choices are made, forgiveness is needed. Jesus teaches us about forgiveness. I love the way he put it, So, when you are offering your gift at the altar, if you remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go; rst be reconciled to your brother or sister and then come and offer your gift. Isnt that marvelous? Usually when we think about forgiveness, we think about our needing to forgive someone else who has hurt us. But Jesus said in the gospel of Matthew, if you remember you have offended or hurt someone, go and seek their forgiveness. Dont wait for them to come to you. Acknowledge the wrong you have done and seek to resolve the situation. Very often the one who brought about the hurt must take the rst step in reconciliation. In either case, a choice has to be made. Life is full of choices, choices with joyful consequences, and choices with dire consequences. But all of the choices you make will be worth nothing, unless you make the ultimate choice to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Making this decision will have tremendous consequences in your life the most signicant being the forgiveness of those sins that drive you to continue hurting yourself and others. This choice will bring about healing and wholeness. It will bring about eternal life. God has put before you the way of life and death. Its your choice. What will it be? Rev.

Special to the News Bulletin A May 7 pinning ceremony at Northwest Florida State College recognized the 46 students who completed bachelor and associate degrees in the colleges nursing program. Associate of Science graduates are qualified to take the Registered Nursing licensure exam. Bachelor of Science in nursing graduates are current R.N.s who completed the baccalaureate program. Two Bachelor of Science graduates were recognized at the ceremony with special awards: Teressa Hudson, R.N. of Crestview, with the Lamp of Nursing Leadership Award; and Gabriela DeJesus, R.N. of Niceville, with the BSN Academic Excellence Award. The Associate of Science graduates earning special honors were Ruth Berry of Niceville, with the Academic Achievement in Nursing Award; Philip Ingle of DeFuniak Springs, with the Clinical Excellence in Nursing Award; and Amanda Middleton of Shalimar, with the Future Nurse Leadership Award. North Okaloosa graduates are listed below. BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN NURSING Baker: Amber Smith Crestview: Rebecca Castleberry, Teressa Hudson, Tracy Maki, and Michelle Parkin. ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE IN NURSING Crestview: Tanya Baxter, Roxanne Cloutier, Kristen Fountain, Lacee Garvin, Melissa Gerasch, Heather M. Linville, Kathryn Mailoto, Johanna McGraw, Shareena Mitchell, and Sheila Paxton. The colleges nursing faculty expressed special thanks to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center for donating the nursing pins for the ceremony. Since 1880, graduates of U.S. schools of nursing have received pins from their nursing director that identies them, even more conspicuously than their diplomas, as distinct representatives of their institution. The tradition of the nursing school pin has evolved for more than a century, with origins dating to 1855 when Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, received a specially designed brooch from Queen Victoria. Much like a regimental badge, the pin was a testimony to Nightingales allegiance, character, purpose and inspiration for her service to soldiers during the Crimean War. The pin received by Nightingale further represented the medieval practice of heraldry as a badge of identity, training and prestige in the 19th century.

Special to the News Bulletin A training course for those interested in obtain ing the certication needed to become a volunteer with Family Integrity Training Inc. (FIT) will take place May 19 in Crestview. Those interested can register online at the FIT website at www.100hour.org for the daylong orientation session. The cost is $35 for regular registration or $25 for those who preregister online. Warden Roberts, Chaplain Faulkenberry and other staff at the Holmes Correctional Institute recently hosted a Regional Chaplains Conference at Bonifay. The conference was set up and planned by regional Chaplain Director David Ring. The 55 state and volunteer prison chaplains also completed the orientation and leader training course required for volunteers to use the life-skills transitions courses developed by FIT. Chaplain Alex Taylor and Chaplain Gingrich gave updates on several needed topics. One was the effectiveness of educational programs in reducing recidivism (return to incarceration). Another was implementing the Second Chance program offered through Trinity Broadcast Network and how some facilities reported that it was especially improving the morale of the youth offenders resulting in fewer security issues. The nal presentation was an volunteer training session put on by FIT. Pastor Ed White presented FITs 100-hour, faith-based curriculum developed by Dr. Don Pratt as a means to equip chaplains and volunteers in offering courses which could meet state requirements that each inmate complete an approved 100-hourtransition course before leaving the prison system. FITs Integrity Program meets this requirement. Pastor White worked with The Florida Department of Corrections to formulate such a program in 2005, according to press release. The program combines ve courses from the Living Free curricula established by Jimmy Ray Lee and three other books written by Pratt to specically address the criteria established by the Florida Legislature. Fred DeMouey, FIT Board member, said he is convinced that rehabilitation is much more effective in the long term and a very possible answer to keeping communities safe, the press release states. Beverly Shatterly, Panhandle FIT coordinator, explained how to implement the program by reviewing the Anger Your Master or your Servant student manual. She expressed her view that the course materials are so well written anyone can facilitate a class with minimal training, according to the press release. You actually get into the minds of the students and they open up in a way as never before, Shatterly said. Many will let down their guard and share things that helps the whole group move forward. The FIT transitional course is a collection of eight separate courses each featuring a specic life skill. Titles from the Living Free series are: Insight, a lesson in nding the roots of addictions; Free to Grow, lessons on dealing with lifes disappointments; Godly Parenting, Handling Loss and Grief, and Anger our Master or our Servant, a course dealing with topics often court-ordered by judges. Pratts courses are Parenting 101, Dating and Marriage, and Financial Success from Scratch. All these courses reect real-life issues that face an inmate when transitioning back into the mainstream of society, according to the press release. The cost to train each student is $10 per unit. The total 100-hour program is $60 per student. The costs are kept low because all staff and volunteers pay their own way, many driving hundreds of miles to teach a class. Because inmates do not have the means to buy the materials, FIT relies on fundraisers from churches and donations to fund a course. More information can be found at the FIT website at www.100hour.org. Donations are welcome and can be done through the website or by phone 941-739-1338. Although some of the courses were written for churches and some for prisoners, they have all proved to be useful in any setting where life-skill development is important, the press release states. This includes prisons, jails, probation, community programs, transitional houses, churches, and Sunday school classes. 1234773 Charles Friend, D.O.

Michelle Tate Styron 5210 South Ferdon, Crestview (850) 902-2842 By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian email@example.com When it comes to de termining what makes a mother a great mom, its best to go right to the source for the answer: their children. Some An tioch Elementary School kindergartners and rst graders were anything but shy when it came to enu merating the qualities that make their moms special. While the students of fered many reasons, in cluding quite a few specif ics, several reoccurring themes continuously popped up, proving that no matter how parenting philosophies may change from generation to gen eration, factors like love, cooking and toys remain constant. So what makes a kids mom great? Heres what the children had to say: Elizabeth Hudsons rst grade: Alex: She takes care of me and anything that hap pens to me, she can x it. Jace: She takes me places. Camryn: My mom gets me a lot of pets. Weve got seven. Dylan: She lets me do some stuff I like to do. Bryna: She buys food to eat and she reads us stories. Jeseka: She takes care of me and she loves me. Hunter: If I need help reaching stuff like clothes or something, she helps me get them down. Victoria: Mom takes me to Disneyland. Emily: She is nice to me. Kaitlyn: She lets me eat whatever I want. Denise Andersons kindergarten: Baylin: She reads books to me. Isaiah: She is teaching me to learn things. Grifn: She lets me do really fun stuff. Chris: She teaches me how to do my numbers. Jacki: She teached me how to snap. (Jacki then demonstrated how she can snap her ngers.) Ledge: She teaches me how to make stuff. Evan: She works at a pre-school. Mackenzie: She loves me. Landen: My mom kisses me. Skylar: Sometimes when Im good and I clean out my toy area, she gives me candy. Obe: She likes it when I dont pout when I get ready for church. Tony: She reads us books. Jacob: She cooked a batch of special cookies for me. Matthew: My mom gives me money to buy stuffed animals. Jayden: My mommy loves me and I want to give her some love. Nicole Pratts kindergarten: Adrian: She loves me be cause I came out of her stomach. Ava: She buys us shoes. Coen: She buys me toys. Ayden: Moms buy you Barbie dolls if youre a girl and jets if youre a boy. Taylor: She does every thing for us. Mason: She takes care of us. Drew: She gets us dinner. Josiah: My mom cares about me. What makes a great mom? Elementary school students offer their opinions Mom and Dad, I just wanted to write you both and tell you how I feel. Ive only told you that I loved you when I wanted something, but that was me being childish. As I am away from yall more and more, I realize how impor tant you really are to me. I love you both dearly and I want to take this time to thank you for all you have given me. You not only gave me life, but you enhanced it. You made me proud to be black and your child. I know that I havent always been easy to live with, but yall put up with me, and for this I thank you. As I was growing up you both taught me so much. Yall taught me more than all the school education in the world could ever have taught me. I remember when we rst got the clock that now ticks in the den. I wanted that big noisy thing in my room. I was being selsh, but yall didnt get mad at me. Instead, you explained to me that it would keep me up and I would be un happy without my sleep. I remember another time, when we lived in the old house and you, Lyn and I were going to church. You gave Lyn a nickel and me a dime. I was jealous because I wanted the big coin. You didnt scorn me though. You explained to me that dime was worth more than the nickel. I didnt question what you said; instead I accepted the dime happily. There was another time, Dad, when Mom was in the hospital that you braided my hair. I was mad because you couldnt do it like momma, but I didnt realize you were do ing the best you could. You put up with my complaints and my selshness. Once again for this, I thank you both. I am truly blessed to have wonderful, gentle and loving parents like you. I dont know if yall ever wonder if you are do ing right by me, but I want to assure you that I could not have asked for better parents. You were there for me when I was sick and dif cult. For this, I thank you. You bought me clothes, some I didnt like but I had clothes and for this I thank you. Mom, you do have pretty good taste, which balances out Daddys color blindness. I love you more than I can express in this letter. You have done so much for me that it would take two lifetimes to even try to re pay you. Thank you, Mom and Daddy, for giving me life and making each day worth living. I miss you both and you will remain in my thoughts as well as my prayers. I love yall so much. Please never forget this. Mom, I remember when I was little and you used to take me to church and I would sit on your lap as youd rock to the songs and sing along. Your voice was beautiful to me. I would fall asleep cradled in your arms as you sang off beat, but I didnt care. I still dont care. You are my momma and I love your voice. Dad, I remember one time we were walking back from Macedonia Church and you were holding my hand. We were talking about the dude who was thrown into the ery pit but didnt die because he believed in Jesus. You en couraged my questions and you answered them all. I then asked you how you got shot in the leg and you told me. I remember you turning me and Lyn around in the yard, holding our feet and arms. That was fun. And the little piggies that went to the market. Ha, ha. Ill be telling my children about them, too. Mom, I remember when my mouth was wired shut. You made sure I didnt miss Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. You are so smart. Dont know how many other mothers would think to blend the turkey up and mix it with gravy. Thank you. Too bad we couldnt grind fried chicken up, too. Dad, I remember you would come in when I had my mouth clamped and make sure I took my medi cine. You watched over me like an angel. Ive had an gels raising me my whole life. I know yall thought I didnt listen to you half the time, but I did. When I did different things wrong and let yall know, I was scared. I was scared yall would be mad and disappointed with me. Yall didnt get mad, though. You both were lov ing and supportive and told me to have faith, and for your condence, I thank you. I know I can always depend on yall. I love hearing how yall met each other. The sto ries vary, but the bottom line is yall fell in love and had beautiful children. Of course, beautiful parents can only have beautiful off spring. I love my Mom and Dad and Im so thankful for having you in my life. Its Mothers and Fa thers Day every day. I love you.

By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle firstname.lastname@example.org Crestview Parks and Recreation Department supervisor Chuck Powell has put the nal touches on plans for another outstanding summer of youth sports camps. We are going to have the same programs with same prices and the same coaches, he said. Thats good news for kids looking to be coached up in everything from shing to soccer, basketball, volleyball and tennis. The camps kick off June 11-14 with the volleyball camp led by Kelly Buckelew. The camp will be divided into age groups 8-10 and 11-13. The older girls will go from 9-10:30 each morning and the younger girls will go from 10:45-11:45 a.m. Soccer camp also starts June 11 and runs through June 21 and will meet Monday through Thursday each week. Phil Rose is back to lead the soccer camp again this year. The camp will be divided into age groups 4-5 and 6 and older. The younger children will go from 9 to 10 a.m. daily and the older students from 9-11 a.m. June 18-21 will feature the shing camp taught by Crestview High School outdoor education instruction Ernie Martin. The camp runs from 7:30-9:30 a.m. (before the sh hit the deep water) and is open to ages 5-12 with children younger than 9 required to have a parent present. Tennis camp also is June 18-21. Former Crestview standout Moya Moore, who currently plays tennis for Birmingham Southern College, is back to lead the camp for a second year, along with help from her father, Bill Moore, the tennis coach at Shoal River Middle School. The tennis camp is open to children 6-12, with campers ages 6-8 going from 8-10 a.m. and the older children, ages 9-12 going from 10:05 a.m. to 12:05 p.m. each day. Finally, basketball camps will be offered the week of July 9-12 and will be led by Shoal River boys basketball coach Mitch Buckelew. The camp is open to boys and girls ages 7-12. The girls camp will go from 8-9:30 a.m. each day. It will be followed by the camp for boys ages 7-9 from 9:30-11 a.m. The basketball camp for older boys runs from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The camps are starting a little later this year for the most part, Powell said. I had to schedule them when I could get the coaches. Powell said a Saturday indoor soccer session is in the works for July. He said the plan is to have rotating pickup games that would include instruction from Rose and other coaches. The cost to play each week would be $5. In addition to the summer camps the Parks and Recreation Department will have fall sport registration throughout the month of June and adult coed volleyball registration from June 25 through July 5. A yer containing information about the times and cost for all the youth summer and fall programs will be distributed at local elementary schools sometime the week of May 21-25.

Crestview volleyball camp big success By RANDY DICKSON 682-6524 | @BigRandle email@example.com More than 80 aspiring volleyball players participated in the Crestview volleyball camp last month. The camp took place Friday and Saturday on three consecutive weekends starting April 13 and ending April 28. The camp was open to players in the third grade up to middle school. Bulldog volleyball coach Kathy Combest said the camp was similar to what she did while coaching at Baker School. When I was at Baker we always worked with the elementary school kids, she said. Youve got ve elementary schools here in Crestview and thats your feeder (programs) elementary, middle and then high schools. We are trying to get these girls involved and interested and wanting to play this sport. Combest said it is always fun to watch the players progress throughout the course of the camp. The rst day it was like watching paint dry, but now (as the camp ended) they are actually calling the ball and tracking the ball much better, she said. They are even understanding how to toss the ball and how to make offense with two or three touches. We did little, middle and big (ages). We took the smaller girls and the middle group and they played two games on Friday night with a two-hour practice, and on Saturday they did a twohour practice and played three games. There were 22 third graders, 28 fourth graders, 28 fth graders and 15 middle school students at the camp. Combest noted that many middle school players are involved in club or travel volleyball that kept them from attending the camp. We didnt think we would get quite so many, so that was very good because it was a fundraiser and it helped us, she said. We thought we would have about 50. That has always been a good number, so it was really a lot bigger than we anticipated. I think if you can do something bene cial for the community with kids learning from it and being positive, you are not just asking for money, you are making money. So you are kind of doing a service. Its not just a fundraiser, its a service to the community. Combest said the response from the players and their parents was positive and the Crestview volleyball team is now gearing up for the summer camp that it will hold next month. The veteran coach knows the camp wouldnt have been successful without the hard work and support of a lot of people. If I havent already, I want to thank the parents and everyone that helped, she said.
