CANDO 2 finds support, wants bigger say in growth Citizen group strives to preserve city’s character, wants a development review committee. JARLEENE ALMENAS STAFF WRITER

Recently-formed citizen group CANDO 2 held its first official meeting on Thursday, March 8. The question was, how many people would show up? The turnout was encouraging to the group, with about 110 residents, including a congressional candidate and local real-estate

investor, filling the auditorium at the Ormond Beach Public Library. This solidified that the group will indeed continue to move forward. “We all have to do this together,” said Jeff Boyle, one of CANDO 2 founders. “It will take every one of us.”  CANDO 2, Citizens and Neigh-

bors Dedicated to Ormond, was dependent on citizen support to move forward with its purpose of bridging what Boyle and other CANDO 2 founders call a disconnect between local government and residents. In attendance at the meeting was Congressional candidate John Upchurch,

Daytona Beach environmentalist Jenny Nazak and Rolf Gardey, real-estate investor and owner of the Coral Sands. The group was formed by nine citizens  after the forested area along West Granada Boulevard SEE CANDO PAGE 5

CRUISE PLANNERS IN MILLIONAIRES CLUB

The first time I ever hired a photographer for the newspaper, I sent her on assignment to take pictures of a mechanical bullriding competiting at Thunder Gulch, on U.S. 1 in Bunnell. This was in 2010, and I was new to the area. I didn’t know what Bike Week was, and I certainly didn’t know that, in addition to bull-riding, there would also be a wet T-shirt contest and a Jello wrestling match featuring women wearing bikinis. Since then, I have had two female reporters tell me they have been sexually harassed while covering biker events. The most recent one happened like this: Reporter is taking pictures, accidentally bumps into a biker, apologizes. Then the biker says, “It’s OK, sweetheart. You can rub up on me anytime you want.” First of all, shame on me for only recognizing this problem after eight Bike Weeks and Biketoberfests. I now realize that I am not respectful of my employ-

ees if I send them to cover events at which they should expect to be sexually harassed. Bike Week is a major economic driver for Volusia and Flagler counties. Restaurants and bars fly signs to encourage bikers to stop for something to eat. But Bike Week is also reprehensible in so many ways, as illustrated by a photo proudly displayed on the front page of the Sunday, March 11, edition of the Daytona Beach News-Journal. It’s of a woman in a leopard-print bikini, leaning forward, showing off her cleavage, with $5 bills tucked under a strap and in her bikini bottoms. As if the reader didn’t quite get it, the cutline explains that this woman is trying to “lure bikers to a bike wash.” I have spoken with people who shrug this off, saying, “It is what it is.” In other words, “Boys will be boys,” and we have to accept that the objectification of women is part of the biker “culture.” Really? Although I’m confident most bikers are great people, some, apparently, feel like wearing black leather gives them permission to do whatever they want. Bike Week has a problem. After this edition, the Observer will do its part and be more judicious in how — and if — we cover Bike Week again. Email Brian McMillan at editor@ormondbeachobserver.com.

Can Bike Week and development coexist? The party continues in Daytona — for now.

WAYNE GRANT REAL ESTATE EDITOR

The dream of city leaders — having more shopping, dining and entertainment on the beachside — has come to Main Street. But it’s only for this week, as the annual party called Bike Week livens up the area. Parking lots have become concert venues or food courts, and normally closed storefronts display endless racks of biker-type clothing and jewelry. But it’s not the kind of life on the street desired by city leaders, including the Beachside Redevelopment Committee, formed in large part to solve the problem of downtown Daytona. The Daytona Beach City Commission has stated that year-round shops and restaurants are needed to support convention center traffic. Business owners have also stated that visitors at the upscale hotels need entertainment options.

“Bikers” has been changed to “Riders.”

Some feel Bike Week stands in the way of beachside revitalization, because many businesses leave with the bikers. Spring Break was once a sandspur in the city’s foot, but has become small enough that hoteliers enjoy an uptick in the offseason while residents ignore it. Some Bike Week watchers say it’s also getting smaller. Can it be

muffled enough on Main Street that year-round businesses can be developed while the 77-yearold party continues? Or perhaps the desired upscale shops can be developed on other streets, while Main Street builds on its night scene year-round, serving a downsized Bike Week. Beachside Daytona Beach is a microcosm of a big city, with the

blank, glassy eyes of the highrises on the east side of State Road A1A looking down on iffy neighborhoods on the west side of the road. Over the decades, the city has had countless studies on how to revitalize the area. The special events are always part of the discussion. This week, the party continues. Many of the pedestrians

weaving up and down the sidewalk on Main Street seem to be  locals taking in the bizarre bazaar. For those interested, I paid $10 to park at a church on Halifax Drive north of Main Street. The county parking garage is also available. Bike Week is part of the history of Daytona that still exists, for now.

‘Perfect partnership’ Donnie’s Donuts hosts its first Vintage Bike Show. PAIGE WILSON COMMUNITY EDITOR

T

o compliment the vintage doughnuts inside Donnie’s Donuts in Ormond Beach, the business held its first Vintage Bike Show, as part of the Bike Week festivities, on Saturday, March 10. Donald Summerlin, one of the owners of Donnie’s Donuts, said the old-fashioned cake doughnuts the shop creates every day are what would have been made in the 1920s. While Donald doesn’t have a

bike of his own, his 1970 pickup truck, complete with the Donnie’s Donuts logo on the side, shows his appreciation for vintage. “I love old bikes, as you can tell from my truck,” he said. “I don’t ride; I fall. But I love motorcycles.” Bikers rolled up to set up their vintage bikes in the parking lot behind the shop at 200 E. Granada Blvd. for an afternoon of classics. “We thought it was a perfect partnership: vintage doughnuts and vintage bikes,” said Patti Summerlin, owner of Donnie’s Donuts.

Cities continue support for putting county’s half-cent sales tax on ballot

Ormond Beach

A meeting was held March 12, to discuss the half-cent sales tax, which could be added to the ballot. NICHOLE OSINSKI STAFF WRITER

CALENDAR OF EVENTS MARCH

New Smyrna Beach is the final city that the county is waiting on to pass or not pass a resolution that would allow for a referendum to be added to the November ballot giving residents a chance to vote on a half-cent sales tax for infrastructure improvements. The other 16 cities in Volusia County have already passed resolution to add the half-cent sales tax proposal to the ballot. Oak Hill was the most recent city to do so, with a unanimous vote on Monday, March 12, the same day as a roundtable meeting comprising leaders from each city in the county. In Port Orange, City Council members are hoping to give voters the chance to decide whether they want a half-cent sales tax for

spending about 1.2, but that’s half a million dollars short because we don’t get enough money from the gas tax,” Burnette said. “We’ll be able to start paving roads at the pace we’re supposed to and start doing projects at the pace we’re supposed to.” Volusia County Chairman Ed Kelly said that while Gibson questioned the formula for sharing the revenue, it’s the same formula that’s used right now by any sales tax that’s collected. “The 10 million people that we’re expected to have this year to come into the Daytona Beach area will be paying a big part of the money that’s collected,” Kelly said. “With the half-cent I think that’s very important.”

the next 20 years. During the Tuesday, Feb. 20, City Council meeting, council members voted 5-0 approving a resolution of support to add it to the ballot. Roads are a major concern, and County Council members want funds from the tax to go toward projects such as lane expansion, as well as projects to improve water quality and stormwater management. The sales tax increase is predicted to generate $45 million throughout the county, with 40% of that revenue generated by tourists. Port Orange is estimated to receive $3,415,331 in one fiscal year —a little over 7% of the total. Port Orange resident and President of the Lodging and Hospitality Association of Volusia County Bob Davis said he supports the tax. According to Davis, within the last 15 years, hospitality contributed $186 million of the halfpenny sales tax. “With the new hotels and all that’s happened in Volusia County, you know that’s going to be a lot more, Davis said. Mayor Don Burnette said that while the tax’s formula isn’t perfect, his job is to make sure voters get to decide what will happen. “We spend about $800,000 a year just maintaining and paving roads and really need to be

The Ormond Beach Planning Board will be recommending to add a pharmacy use to two zoning districts to give possible medical marijuana dispensaries more options regarding location. The board examined three potential zoning districts identified by city staff at its meeting on March 8. Based on direction provided by the board in February, city staff reported back to the planning board that the B-8 commercial, B-9 boulevard and B-10 suburban boulevard zoning districts had potential to include a pharmacy use, which is the only use a medical marijuana dispensary is allowed to operate under. While the Planning Board members debated about the B-8 zoning district, they agreed to recommend adding a pharmacy use to B-9 and B-10. As this was an initial discussion, the B-8 district could be added to the recommendation at a later date. At least one Ormond Beach resident is in favor of expanding the pharmacy use, especially since commercial landlords have the right to turn down a business as long as it’s not under a

protected class. “In case a business owner did want to turn it down, I think that would be a case for having more availability for zoning locations for dispensaries,” said Joe Hannoush, who is also a Florida House of Representatives District 25 candidate. Currently, traditional pharmacies are allowed only in the small professional/office B-1 district. Pharmacy store chains like CVS and Walgreens do not have to abide under that zoning because they are classified as retail, a double-standard Planning Board member G.G. Galloway said he doesn’t like. “Walgreens is not in our community to sell milk,” Galloway said. “They’re in our community to push pharmaceutical.” Galloway, who is a real estate agent, recently had a group approach him with the intention of opening up a medical marijuana dispensary in Ormond Beach. Due to the lack of qualifying parcels available, his client ended up choosing a location in Holly Hill. He also said this issue won’t go away since, aside from the fact 71% of Ormond Beach residents voted in favor of medical marijuana, the city also has the demographics to support multiple dispensaries.

‘Peddlers of Death’: Deltona heroin traffic organization dismantled Volusia County deputies have dismantled a 23-person Deltona heroin traffic organization responsible for distributing large amounts of heroin in the county. Deputies seized 1.5 kilograms of heroin, some laced with fentanyl, a firearm and cash. “These scumbags are the peddlers of death in our community,” Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said at a press conference Tuesday, March 13. After a yearlong investigation, the Volusia Bureau of Investigation and the Deltona Narcotics Enforcement Team identified and arrested the alleged ringleader, Henry Guilfu Bermudez, and his Orlando supplier, Salvador Cancel Castillo, during “Operation Heavyweight.” The teams also identified 21 of Bermudez’s “mules,” as Chitwood called them. The confiscated heroin is estimated to be enough for 15,000 doses and valued at $150,000. Five of the 23 members are still outstanding. Chitwood predicted more drug busts in the coming months. “We’re coming after this as much as we can,” Chitwood said.

An estimated 110-125 people attended CANDO 2's first meeting.

CANDO 2 gains momentum and Tomoka Avenue was cleared for the upcoming Granada Pointe development, inspiring residents to express their disappointment publicly to the City Commission. The first CANDO group accomplished its goal to restrict building heights for condos in Ormond Beach in 2006. Unlike its predecessor, CANDO 2 is not a political organization, neither will it support or oppose electoral candidates. However, the group encourages citizen involvement in the elections. Boyle said CANDO 2 will work toward educating the City Commission on what the public wants, and if that doesn’t work, individual residents  have the choice to vote the current commissioners out of office. According to the mission statement handed out to all who attended the meeting, CANDO 2 strives to make sure citizens are informed on all issues related to growth and development, work with city government to find solutions and to preserve the aesthetic character, environment

and quality of life in Ormond, “We see that suddenly being eroded all at once,” Boyle said. Gardey stood up and spoke during the meeting, saying he’s probably the longest-living real estate agent in town, having lived in Ormond since 1961. He said killing trees is not profitable in the county because tourists don’t come for the shopping centers. “You come for the clean air, for the water, for the original North Florida vegetation,” Gardey said.  “And that’s being taken away for gas stations?” CANDO 2’s goals include creating an email data base for communication with city officials, restoring all development and wetlands rules removed since 2009, establishing a citizen review of new development applications early in the process and strengthening tree preservation codes and replacement requirements. “I’m just shocked that our city has discontinued these incredible rules that protected our city and made it special,” Holly Hill resident Alice Jaeger said.

NEXT STEP Moving forward, CANDO 2 will be focusing on the vacant parcels in the city. Its next meeting will take place on April 10.

Go Further With Food By Catherine Robinson, MS, RDN, LD, CDE

March is National Nutrition Month which is an opportunity to highlight health through nutrition and wellness. This year’s theme is “Go Further with Food” and is important for several reasons. We are encouraged to consume a healthful eating plan to achieve the benefits of optimal nutrition. Often we purchase the food, but don’t actually eat it. Healthy eating offers our body’s nutritional demands for fighting and preventing disease. Part of this year’s theme urges us to find ways to cut back on food waste. Embracing this theme will save you in food, nutrients and money.

Food loss and waste refers to food that is not eaten by people, for whatever reason. It has been estimated that billions of pounds of food are thrown away each year in the United States alone. That’s roughly 300 pounds of food per year for the average American. Prevention is the first step in reaching our national goal to cut food loss and waste in half. Key concepts to consider for National Nutrition Month include: • Include a variety of healthful foods from all of the food groups on a regular basis. Variety is the spice of life which is true for food choices. • Consider the foods you have on hand before buying more at the store. Planning your meals in advance and shopping with a food list will ensure meals are adequate, varied, and food is available throughout the week. • Buy only the amount that can be eaten or frozen within a few days and plan ways to use leftovers later in the week. Menu planning helps to be sure

all food is eaten before it goes to waste. • Be mindful of serving sizes. Eat and drink the amount that’s right for you, as United States Department of Agriculture’s “Choose My Plate” encourages us to do. MyPlate is the guide set up by reducing the size of the plate to reduce overeating and waste. • Continue to use good food safety practices. Things to think about include cooking meats to proper internal temperatures, washing fresh fruits and vegetables, and washing cutting boards between raw and cooked foods. Let’s plan during National Nutrition Month to reduce our personal amount of food waste. Dietitians are great resources to help you achieve your nutrition goals!

FINDERS KEEPERS 7:41 p.m. — 200 block of West Granada Boulevard Larceny. Police tracked down and investigated an Ormond Beach man about a missing wallet last seen in a shopping cart he picked up at a local dollar store. While additional follow-ups were determined by police to be required before charging him, the man was arrested for possession of cannabis during the investigation. Security footage from the dollar store show the victim leaving her wallet, and possibly phone, inside a shopping cart which would be picked up seconds later by the suspect. Police report the video shows him appearing to observe the wallet, but he does not alert any of the employees of its presence, nor does he hand it over. After reviewing the footage, a police officer remembered seeing the man frequently at the local 7-Eleven, and headed there to identify him. The man was found and questioned, telling police he did not recall seeing a wallet but that he did remember hearing the victim speaking with an employee about the wallet’s disappearance.

give a false name to the officer until he discovered her ID in her car, at which point she admitted having a suspended license and said that she did not wish to go to jail. During the identity blunder, the woman said she had changed her name and said her address was on Granada Avenue in Holly Hill. The woman was also found to be in possession of heroin and marijuana. Her vehicle was towed and she was transported to the Volusia County Branch Jail.

MARCH 10

LIST IT AND DITCH IT 3:58 p.m. — 500 block of N. Halifax Drive Fraud. A Michigan woman was scammed out of almost $1,300 after her vacation rental for Bike Week turned out to be fake: It was occupied by renters who told her they have been renting the home for months. The woman found the rental on Craigslist. She spoke over the phone with someone she believed to be the owner of the property and deposited the full amount, $1,288.75, into a bank account as instructed. The bank account was under a different name, but believing the ad was legitimate, the woman did not question this. The actual owners, whose first and last names were swapped in order on the Craigslist ad, told police they never knew of the victim. The current renters booked their property on VRBO.

As someone who raised her children on the beaches of St. Thomas, Ashley Willis’ heart is still with the people in the Caribbean affected by Hurricane Maria, some of whom have not regained power since the storm battered their homes in late September of 2017. “It’s going to take ongoing effort, continuous, by everyone,” Willis said. “This is not going to be a quick fix.” She and her husband, John Smith, have decided to take action. They will be hosting a fundraiser in May to help families in the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. They’re both members of Calvary Christian Center, and this won’t be the first time they have helped people recovering from Hurricane Maria. In December, they were connected with Catherine Diaz from Puerto Rico, who was relocating her family from the island to Florida. She stayed with Willis and Smith for about a month before her two children and husband were able to join her. Now, the Diaz family is settled in Altamonte Springs. Diaz and Willis also shared a special connection. Diaz’s mother married Willis and Smith on St. Thomas in November of 2016. “It’s like her daughter is our daughter without even knowing her because we’re family, and that’s how it works in a family of believers,” Willis said. Willis and Smith met on Beach Street in Daytona. Smith was

drumming as a greeter for Kale Cafe and Willis had opened a store inside Jakob’s Well. When Smith met Willis, he said, her kindness toward strangers inspired him. “It’s a joyful thing, you know, to know that you’re doing something to really help others,” Smith said. Keeping the effort going for the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico is important to Willis, and she said every dollar helps when there are still people with damage to their homes. Many of them live or work in a community or industry that is crippled, she added. “It’s going to take many different efforts on many different people’s parts at different times, and, you know, we don’t want them to be forgotten,” Willis said. Smith added, “We just want to show our love to everybody.”

CLINICALLY PROVEN*; Better Than Normal Hearing

*Study conducted at the University of Northern Colorado, 2015, examined the effectiveness of the new features of primax by collecting and analyzing ongoing EEG data while subjects performed speech testing. For both primax features SpeechMaster and EchoShiled, the objective brain behavior measures revealed a significant reduction in listening effort when the feature was activated. Hearing instruments help many people hear better, but cannot solve every hearing problem.

SPORTS Catching up with BethuneCookman’s Malik Maitland

Bucs’ struggles continue at the mound

RAY BOONE STAFF WRITER

Maitland was a star at Father Lopez before he graduated in 2013.

Mainland walked the bases loaded twice in a loss to Matanzas on Thursday, March 8.

RAY BOONE STAFF WRITER

Facing a 2-2 count with two outs, Mainland’s Kam Lee took to the plate with the Buccaneers down one run to Matanzas in the top of the seventh inning. The Pirates’ closing pitcher, Erik Libby, threw a fast ball at Lee, whose metal bat connected with the curving pitch. He knew it was a ground ball the moment he made contact. The ball toddled along the grass on the field at Matanzas High School before settling in the glove of Matanzas’ first basemen to record the game-winning out. The Buccaneers — who defeated Matanzas 8-6 on Tuesday, March 6 — lost to the Pirates 8-6 on Thursday, March 8. And although the Buccaneers struggled to score in the closing innings, it was Mainland’s struggles on the mound that helped the Pirates to a comeback victory. Mainland — which was without its ace, Chase Brinkerhoff, due to tendonitis in his throwing arm — led the Pirates 5-2 heading into the third inning. The Pirates’ two runs to that point came in the first inning after Lee, who, in addition to hitting, served as the Buccaneers’ starting hurler, walked the bases loaded. Lee walked the bas-

es loaded once again in the fourth inning — his last side of the night. He was replaced by reliever Hunter Good to start the fifth frame. Good opened his night throwing six straight balls. And in the sixth inning, Matanzas took its first lead of the game off a 2 RBI single that gave the Pirates an 8-6 lead. “We’ve got to work on pitching,” Lee said. “We’ve got to throw strikes. We’ve got to be more fundamentally sound.”

Echoing his head coach Jay Michael Burton’s sentiments, Lee believes the Buccaneers are going to be fine. In addition to beating the Pirates in their first game, the Buccaneers have also knocked off Father Lopez. Brinkerhoff is expected to make a return to the mound soon as well, giving Mainland’s pitching staff much-needed depth. “We made a lot of bad plays tonight,” Lee said. “But it’s not anything we can’t fix.”

alik Maitland has lived in Palm Coast for nearly seven years, but he calls Daytona home. “Daytona,” Maitland said, “this is my city.” Maitland, who played at Flagler Palm Coast High School his freshman year, was a threeyear star at Father Lopez. During his junior year at Lopez, Maitland averaged over 35 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists during a holiday tournament. His senior year, he accrued 25 college offers, ultimately deciding to attend Morehead State in Morehead, Kentucky, in 2013. Things didn’t go as planned at Morehead. He transferred from the school in his sophomore season after his ex-coach, Sean Woods, allegedly assaulted Maitland and teammate Soufiyane Diakite. Maitland transferred to Bethune-Cookman before the 2016-17 season and was eligible to play immediately. Now in Year 2 with the Wildcats, the 5-foot9, 175-pound guard is starting to make his mark on the program. He plays 29.3 minutes per game, averaging 10 points, 4.5 assists and 2.7 rebounds. The Wildcats finished the regular season tied for the MidEastern Athletic Conference and had the top overall record of any team in the MEAC. One of the biggest draws to his hometown team was legendary Embry-Riddle men’s basketball coach Steve Ridder and Ridder’s son, Ryan, who took over as the Wildcats’ men’s basketball coach this year. “It’s a whole big family thing,” Maitland said. “We have trust, and we always push each other.” Maitland said he wanted to use his return to the community to improve on and off the court. “It’s a blessing. It’s an honor to be here,” he said. “There’s a reason for everything. This is a dream to play in front of my community.” Email Ray Boone at ray@palmcoastobserver.com.

For the 19th year, the Shining Stars Pageant gave locals with special needs a platform to express their talents like singing, dancing and playing the piano. Filling the stage at Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center, 28 participants in Ormond Beach’s Department of Leisure Services Special Populations Division showcased their talents and answered pageant-style questions on Saturday, March 10. Nova Community Center and Special Division Populations Coordinator Lori Koplin has been working with the pageant for about 10 years. “It’s exciting to watch them overcome the challenges and reach their goals,” she said. She added that getting on stage takes a lot of courage for some of the participants, but it’s rewarding. Koplin said this year, they revamped the pageant’s format to include on-stage questions, including favorite characters and role models, to give the participants more stage time. Four age groups, ranging from little kids to young adults to middle-aged to senior citizens, performed and were crowned, showing the diversity of the area. Koplin said that in addition to helping the participants get out of their shells to enjoy the spot-

New book examines Halifax Genealogical workers by generation Society celebrates 25 years Dillon Knight Kalkhurst’s book examines all the generations to dispel stereotypes. JARLEENE ALMENAS STAFF WRITER

Ormond-by-the-Sea resident Dillon Knight Kalkhurst has written a book he hopes will bridge the divide between generations. “I’m a bit of a demography geek,” Kalkhurst said. His self-published book, “Intergenerational Engagement: Understanding the Five Generations in Today’s Economy,” is meant to dispel the negative stereotypes of recent generations and focus on the strengths that each can bring to an organization, workplace or nonprofit. After almost 25 years working in and around school systems helping

Dillon Knight Kalkhurst sits in the spot in Gold Leaf Coffee where he wrote the millennial chapter of his book.

with strategic partnerships, 10 of which he spent with the Scholastic Corp., Kalkhurst said he was able to see two generations of parents and students grow through the education system. “That’s given me tremendous insight into how things have changed throughout the generations, especially how it relates to family engagement and corporate social responsibility,” Kalkhurst said. Kalkhurst, who is part of Generation X, said he wrote the majority of the book in the Ormond Beach Public Library, tucked inside one of the study booths and listening to EDM music. It’s what helps get his creative juices flowing, he said. When he got to the chapter about millennials, Kalkhurst headed to Gold Leaf Coffee inside Frame of Mind. He utilized the environment, the quintessential “millennial hangout,” to draw real-life examples into his book. With five different generations still active in the workplace, Kalkhurst said he wants to challenge people to get out of their comfort zone and see age diversity for what he believes it is. “I want everybody to understand that age diversity is a huge gift,” Kalkhurst said.

More than just lists of names and dates. JARLEENE ALMENAS STAFF WRITER

The Halifax Genealogical Society recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, a milestone that to its members means people are still interested in tracing back their family ancestry and preserving stories. HGS was founded by four women in September 1992, and, by the end that year, its membership had grown to 106. Numbers remain steady today, and HGS President Bill Vivian said it’s the largest genealogy society in Volusia County. Its members originate from all over the country, which is why HGS doesn’t limit its focus to Ormond history and families. The purpose of the society is to promote interest in genealogy and historical research and to provide the education needed for efficient and accurate research. Each member has his or her own goal in genealogy — for Vivian, it’s finding the first immigrant in his family. “Knowing the heritage of your ancestors keeps the thread going as you think about yourself and your own life,” Vivian said. It’s also an emotional search, said past president and current member Clyde Stickney. “You almost discover some-

thing every day because you see new documents, new insights, new relationships, and it builds on itself,” Stickney said. “We love to be part of people’s first exposure to genealogy.” When HGS member John Parkerson first got involved, research meant library resources and word of mouth. He was president of the society in the late ’90s and early 2000s, and now, thanks to the internet, research methods have evolved. Its members are HGS’s greatest resources too, Parkerson said. The society’s monthly meetings are not only led by internation-

ally known genealogists, but also its own members whom Director of Publicity Bernardette Zappala warmly refers to as icons. When she joined in 2004, she said, she found a group of knowledgeable people. “They’ll always listen,” Zappala said. “They’ll listen to your perhaps sometimes inane questions and they’re willing to give of their time.” HGS meets at 1:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month from September to May at the Ormond Beach Library. Open to the public. Free research advice at the library the following Friday.

In the ‘gateway to Volusia County’: Security First breaks ground in Ormond Crossings Creating jobs for the future generations. JARLEENE ALMENAS STAFF WRITER

in business in Ormond Beach for 60 years, said Security First Chairman and President Locke Burt. He said it is the hometown insurance company for Volusia and Flagler counties, insuring one out of five homes.  “This is the heart of our business, and we really wanted to stay here and be a part of Ormond Beach — continue to be a part of Ormond Beach,” Burt said.  The biggest change for the company will be crossing the Halifax River, Burt added, since Security First has always operated from the beachside. The company has been in its current location on 140 S. Atlantic Ave. for almost 45 years. “We hope that we’ll be in this

Ormond Beach Mayor Bill Partington also touched on this point, bringing the crowd’s attention to the kids playing in the dirt with yellow toy bulldozers as the ceremony went on. “Seeing the kids here tonight is fantastic,” Partington said. “[Former Mayor] Fred Costello talked about 15 or 20 years ago,

Ormond Beach needs to retain its talent and make jobs for our young people.

Security First Insurance held a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, March 7, for its new $30 million headquarters in Ormond Crossings, which will allow the family-owned company to almost triple its current staffing. Security First began clearing 13 out of the 48 acres for the construction site in early January. The new four-story headquarters will span 133,000 square feet complete with a large cafeteria, fitness center, extra break rooms as well as outdoor walking trails in the remaining acreage. It will be able to house an estimated 750 full-time employees. Volusia County Council Chair Ed Kelley called the new headquarters “one of the greatest historic moments in economical development” in Volusia County, in front of a crowd of about 450 people, including county and Ormond Beach city  officials, Security First board members, employees and their families. He said that Security First is an example that “world-class” companies can start, grow and expand in Volusia. “This shows what happens when you can work together with the county, and the city and the private sector, and arrive at this point today,” Kelley said. When the headquarters open in 2019, Security First will have been
