CITY HONORS THOSE WHO’VE MADE A ‘HUGE IMPACT’

AFTER BEING M.I.A. FOR A YEAR, HAPPY THE CAT RETURNS

Citizens who have put in many years of service on advisory boards were honored at the City Commission meeting Jan. 3 with a plaque and a “key to the city” pin. Mayor Bill Partington said they have made a huge impact on the city by serving an amazing number of years on the boards. Shown are Ted West, Human Resources Advisory Board, 1999 to 2017; Scott Edwards, Leisure Services, 2004 to 2017; Mayor Bill Partington; Debbie Berner, Quality of Life, 2002 to 2017; and Rita Press, Planning Board, 2001 to 2017. Not shown are Bob Behnke, Larry Stout, Rick Banker and Rick Fraser.

For 439 days, Daytona Beach resident Kaitlyn Seesholtz commented on every “found” Facebook post for an orange cat, called her name while she walked her dog, and never, ever gave up hope that she would see her favorite pet, Happy, again. And finally, Happy came home.  It was her and her boyfriend’s sixth anniversary, and he noticed a familiar face standing outside the front door of their Daytona Beach apartment. Her boyfriend, Joseph Hope, called out, and the cat ran. Eventually, the couple was able to coax the cat inside. It was then that they noticed the markings on its head that could only be Happy’s. The cat has what looks

like an H on its head, and that’s how she got her name, Seesholtz said. The two have had the cat since she was a kitten. Seeshotlz’s brother-in-law rescued her after she was thrown from a car.  “She was there through everything,” Seesholtz continued. “My father’s passing only a few months after we got her, losing my childhood home that I called home for 22 years, my first move, and then our first apartment together. Never once did we think of her not being a part of all of it.”  Soon after her father died, Seesholtz noticed another marking had appeared on Happy’s head: an ‘M.’ Her father’s name was Mark.  “Maybe it always there, I’m not sure,” she said, “but I noticed it once my father died. She comforted me when I missed him most.”  Overjoyed to have her cat back home, Seesholtz encourages other people with missing pets not to give up. “One day, hopefully, they’ll make their way home,” she said. “I’ve spent four years cuddling her, 439 days missing her, and now I plan to spend the rest of her life spoiling her even more.” 

Ormond Beach police are investigating a missing person’s case involving Kory T. Limato, 16, of Ormond Beach. She left home on Dec. 25 at approximately 3 p.m., when she was picked up in a red passenger car operated by an unknown person, police said in a press release. Kory has ties to the Orlando area and may have headed in that direction. She is described as a white female, 5 feet tall and 135 pounds, with brown eyes and long red hair. She is entered into the National Crime Information System as missing. Anyone with information on is asked to contact Ormond Beach Police at 677-0731.

A partial skull found in Ormond Beach Saturday by a Pennsylvania man on vacation has been confirmed to be human.  Jonathan Baier told WESH 2 News that he found the partial skull at the Neptune Beach Approach and turned it into beach safety officers. Senior Capt. Andrew Ethridge said medical examiners confirmed Thursday that the skull is human and believed to be hundreds of years old, meaning there is no criminal significance. “Things wash up,” Ethridge said. “We just had that hurricane, so you can speculate that had something to do with it.” Beach safety sent the remains to the anthropology department at the University of Florida for further testing.

THE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER:

‘A SPECIAL PLACE’

WAYNE GRANT NEWS EDITOR

T

he story goes that the City Commission was visiting The Casements one day almost 30 years ago when the building started shaking. They were on the first floor, and the second floor was bouncing, going up and down as much as six inches, reports said. The Children’s Musical Theater, a city recreation activity, was practicing a dance routine upstairs, making the building dance, too. There had been discussions about the city setting up its own performing arts center, and witnesses say that was when the commission decided something had to be done, and soon. The city bought buildings and land from the Calvary Assembly of God Church for $1.7 million in 1988 and converted it to the Performing Arts Center that stands today at 399 N. U.S. 1. A separate building on the property was remodeled into the Senior Center located east of the PAC. There was a groundswell of community support for a performing arts center, said Cindy Simmons, who has been directing shows at the PAC since it opened. “The parents of the kids and the seniors were heavily involved,” she said. “Groups of people attended City Commission meetings. Letters were written.” The Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center opened May 10, 1991. PAC Supervisor Marc Schwartz said many people were instrumental in forming the PAC and its success over the years, and he plans to make sure they are recognized at the 25th Anniversary Show at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14. This special show will highlight in-house show groups as well as professional performances including Broadway, dance, and musical groups. Featured performers include Simmons, Bob Arcuri, Seaside Music Theatre, South Beach Dance Competition Team, Ormond Beach Follies, Ormond Beach Senior Theatre Workshop, Children’s Musical Theatre Workshop, Linda Cole, Ashley Townsend and more. There will also be speakers and displays to commemorate the anniversary. Schwartz said he wanted the show to be on the anniversary date, May 10, 2016, but it had to be delayed to get all of the groups together on one night.

approved a bond in 1988 to buy the church land and buildings. Some commissioners were concerned about spending the money, Simmons said, but others saw the wisdom of the investment for the future. The remodeling of a church into the PAC included adding practice rooms upstairs, as well as a dining room. The auditorium floor in the church was flat and had to be inclined for theater seating. “It took quite a lot of engineering,” Schwartz said. The mayor was Nicholas Fortunato, who is no longer living. The only commissioner still living is Joe Thomas, now in his 90s, who said he will be at the anniversary. Now, 25 years after the first performance, the Performing Art Center provides a place for local performers, CMT, Ormond Follies and Kopy Kats, and hosts a variety of traveling shows, including concerts, comedians and musicals. “The PAC is a huge asset to the community,” said Julio Truilo, director of the Ormond Beach Arts District and Ormond MainStreet. “It demonstrates the commitment by the city to support the arts community.” RETURN ENGAGEMENT

Cindy Simmons directs CMT and Follies, and she will direct the anniversary show. She will also perform at the show along with Bob Arcuri. They were the first two people to step on the stage at the PAC in 1991, performing “I Do, I Do,” a twocharacter play. Simmons said they were

rehearsing for the first show when the seats were being installed. “It was exciting,” she said. It doesn’t seem like 25 years have passed, to Simmons. “We were surprised when we found out it was 25 years, but then we looked at the pictures and saw we were much younger,” she said with a laugh. “It seems like yesterday.” She has performed in musicals at the Peabody and around the country, and says the PAC is one of the nicest because it’s intimate. The audience area rises steeply, so there’s not a bad seat in the house. A SPECIAL PLACE

Schwartz said the PAC is a thriving arts center and a big part of the community. He pointed out that there are local performers as young as 2 in the Little Feet Acad-

emy, and seniors in the Follies. “This is a special place that very few communities this size have,” he said. He has been supervisor since 2010, and said there have been 500 performances in that time. The PAC averages 40,000 visits a year. “That shows you the appetite for performing arts,” he said. Schwartz’s background is in sound engineering, and he said the acoustics of the building are excellent, and the city added a new sound system in 2014. Local performing groups have also made improvements, such as using ticket proceeds to buy lighting and donating it to the building. Two years ago, the Friends of the PAC arranged to have a concert grand piano donated. It was a community endeavor to get the PAC started, and remains that way 25 years later.

THE BEGINNING

Bruce Simmons, husband of Cindy, was the first PAC manager, and also a director. Before the PAC, he said, the CMT, a seniors group and the Ormond Players performed at area high schools and practiced where they could. Those were city activities, so the city had to pay the schools. After much public input, the City Commission

Kayla Hurley is trying to raise and save $20,000 to pay for surgery to remove her loose skin. EMILY BLACKWOOD COMMUNITY EDITOR

At her heaviest, Kayla Hurley weighed 357 pounds. But she didn’t see the problem until it was right in front of her. “I was getting on a roller coaster with my little brother, and it took 15 minutes for me to try to buckle myself in,” she said. “An attendant  saw me struggling, and tried to help me, but eventually apologized and said I had to get off. People were staring, and I had to watch my brother ride the roller coaster by himself while I stood by the stairs.”  After that, Hurley went to visit her doctor to get serious about weight loss.   After four months of working with a nutritionist at Halifax Health and following a plan with Herbalife, Hurley lost 20 pounds. That’s when her doctor told her she would qualify for gastric sleeve surgery, a restrictive operation that makes the stomach smaller and helps people lose weight. After months of consultations, doubts and 20 more pounds of weight loss, Hurley had the operation done.  “The first couple months after were horrendous,” she said. “I gained back the 20 pounds I had lost, and I had to learn how to eat again.”  Finally, she got serious about following the after-surgery plan and started consistently losing two pounds a week. Two years later, she’s lost a total of 193 pounds. “When I look back at pictures, it’s hard to believe that that was me,” she said. “And even though it was a part of my life, I really hope I never see that person again.”  Though a lot of things in her life now have changed for the better — she works out consistently, has more energy and can do things she’s always wanted to do — there are still remnants of her weight loss that she’d like to leave behind. Mainly, the loose skin around her stomach and arms. 

Emily Blackwood

Kayla Hurley

“It’s like having another chest on my waist,” she said. “It pulls and tugs when I run, I have constant lower back pain, and I even landed in the ER from an infection from the skin over my belly button.” Keeping the loose skin clean and free from bacteria is a constant job and getting it removed will cost around $20,000 — which is a surgery her insurance company is not paying for.  Hurley had posted about her dramatic weight loss on Imgur, an image sharing site, and had tons of people ask her to post a photo of her loose skin. When she finally did, it went viral.  “I woke up and saw that it had thousands of comments and had been shared over a million times,” she said. The Huffington Post U.K. did a story, and so did The Daily Mail. George Takei from Star Trek even retweeted one of the articles about her.  Some of the comments people left encouraged her to start a GoFundMe page to raise money for the surgery, but she resisted.  “I was taught never to beg,” she said. “My dad is a really strong guy, and he always taught me to work hard for what you want.” 

And Hurley has been working hard. She’s saved around $5,000 for the surgery so far from her job as a certified nursing assistance. But once people said that they would start a GoFundMe page for her, she acted. “I didn’t want anyone making money off of me or anything like that,” she said. “I’ve been pushing for my insurance to cover it, and if it does, I’ll donate the money from the GoFundMe to charity.” The page has been up for 13 days, and she’s raised almost $2,000. But the best part of this whole journey is the stories she’s heard from other people. “I’ve had someone tell me that they had given up on weight loss until they saw my story,” she said, smiling. “People from all over the world have been sending me messages and asking me questions. There have been a few mean comments, but 98% have been supportive and kind. And for that, I’m so grateful.”  Visit gofundme.com /looseskin-removal-for-kayla for more information.

Police seek answers in death of couple found on I-4 A longtime friend remembers a happy family.

Wayne Grant

The couple had moved into this house on Sunny Palm Drive late last year.

Springhill, Florida, is also searching for answers. “It’s so hard right now to even accept the fact that she is no longer here with us,” Lynn said. “She is greatly missed. They lived for their boys. We enjoyed talking about all the crazy things our boys did. I miss her terribly. ... I just don’t understand; we have so many unanswered questions right now.” Lynn said the couple got a new house on Sunny Palm Drive just before Christmas and were excited to get a new start in Ormond Beach. “She was my best friend, more like a sister,” Lynn said. “No matter the distance, we always kept in contact. She was a great, loving, devoted mother to her three beautiful baby boys.” Lynn said the couple traveled to Georgia a couple of months ago, but decided they loved Florida and returned. Heather had lived most of her life in Florida, and Daniel was from Sanford and a graduate of Spruce Creek High School, according to his Facebook page. They were married in May

uthorities are still searching for answers in the case of a married couple found dead beside their SUV on Interstate 4 near DeLand at about 2 a.m. Dec. 31. An autopsy did not reveal any signs of trauma, and a full toxicology test is planned to determine the cause of their deaths. A Sheriff’s Office spokesman said one of the victims tested presumptive positive for drugs, but would not yet say which person, because the investigation is continuing.

A Florida Highway Patrol trooper had stopped to check the car beside the interstate and found the couple nearby. The couple’s three children, all age 2 and under, were unharmed in the backseat of the car. “(The children) are with family and are doing well,” said Candice Lynn, a lifelong friend of Heather Kelsey and a resident of Soperton, Georgia.

They were truly in love.”

t probably won’t surprise you to learn that my dog, Bear, doesn’t get out much. Though when I first adopted him it was my dream to have a dog I could take with me everywhere, Bear quickly revealed himself to be more wallflower than social butterfly. But no matter how much he wanted to stay on the couch Saturday afternoon, we were going to Dogapalooza. The third-annual event held at the Ormond Memorial Art Museum is basically a solid two hours of dog mom heaven — meaning you get to do a bunch of stuff that you love, but your pup probably hates. Let’s just say activities like fur-chalking, paw print artwork and a canine costume contest were apparently not on Bear’s bucket list. This year (thanks to having an “in” with the museum gals), I was given the prestigious title of one of the judges of the costume contest. I, along with the amazing Nancy Lohman and the wonderful Perry-Nicholas Isch, would be deciding which canine was the most fashionable. I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon. Bear was surprisingly wellbehaved for most of the event. The treats, constant petting and people taking his photo

I looked behind me to find that he was taking a nice number two — right in the middle of the festival. Stares and gasps surrounded us, and I frantically searched my pockets for a doggy bag. “Oh no,” I whispered to Bear.

which Bear was supposed to be sitting calmly by my side at the judges’ table. I figured that by then he would be so worn out from the day that he would just sleep. But there’s only one thing in this world that can give my dog a random burst of energy: the smell of food. While Darlynn Tacinelli was introducing the first contestant, Bear started barking and growling. I tried to shush him. Unsuccessful, I looked around to see what it was that was making him so angsty. Finally, I saw the problem. There was a woman about 10 feet away from us eating a bowl of mac ’n’ cheese. Bear wanted some. I wish I could tell you that I eventually gained control over my pet or that the woman finished her lunch and all was well. But no, Bear continued to bark and growl at her every bite during the duration of the competition. I was so ready to get him home and back on the couch that I completely forgot to apologize. So: Ma’am with the mac ’n’ cheese, if you’re somehow reading this, my bad. Bear is just a big believer in sharing.

Seabreeze grad fulfills lifelong dream with surf-themed restaurant Jimmy Hula’s opened Jan. 2, in Granada Plaza.

A surf board hangs above the manager’s office in the recentlyopened  Jimmy Hula’s restaurant in Granada Plaza. It’s one of many  among the restaurant’s surf-shack décor. Manager/owner  Jose Cifuentes grew up surfing at the nearby Granada beach approach, and now he’s bringing some surfer culture to the area with the franchise along with his wife, Vanessa. The grand opening was Jan. 2. The casual and fun eatery,

located at 191 E. Granada Blvd., has unique features such as a garage door entrance and actual car seats in the booths. There’s both patio and inside dining. Cifuentes calls the menu a fusion of California and Hawaiian cooking. Offerings include fish tacos, with surf-lingo names such as “epic” and “baja.” Turf tacos, the restaurant’s spin on tacos, include “wipeout” and “pipeline pork.” There’s also a variety of burgers, sandwiches, salads, bowls and a kids’ menu. A PASSION FOR THE BUSINESS

While attending Seabreeze High School, Cifuentes developed a passion for the restaurant business working at Luigi’s Cafe in Daytona Beach. “I was inspired by the owner, Terry Chmiel,” Cifuentes said. “I admired his work ethic.” After graduating from high school in 1994, he worked as a cook at Lovici’s in Ormond-bythe-Sea. He joined the Air Force and served 17 years, but always wanted to open a restaurant someday. “It’s been my lifelong dream to do this,” he said.

He met his wife, Vanessa, in the Air Force, and when their military careers ended, they decided to fulfill his dream. Over the past couple of years, Cifuentes has attended culinary school at Daytona State University while his wife took hospitality management. He said he only needs one course to get his degree. “It’s a great school,” he said. “The chefs are unbelievable — very experienced.” Like others starting a business, the couple have found it to be a lot of work. “I’m in deployment mode,” Cifuentes said with a smile. “You prepare yourself mentally and physically for the long hours. Some people say I’m crazy, but I’m passionate about it. This is my new home.” His “new home” is near the beach where he surfed as a youth, which has long been a popular surfing area. They have big plans for the future. They plan to open a Pita Pit restaurant in DeLand next year and four more Jimmy Hulas in Volusia County in the next five years. Find them on Facebook at Jimmy Hula’s Ormond Beach.

NERVOUS DRIVER 6:31 p.m. —400 Block of South Yonge Street Attempting to elude with lights and sirens active. An officer saw a fugitive with an active felony warrant pass by in the passenger seat of a car. He recognized him from previous encounters. The officer tried to pull the car over, but the driver ignored the siren and light, increased speed and weaved in and out of traffic. The officer broke off the chase, but the suspect vehicle was later stopped on a dead end street by a Holly Hill policeman. Asked why he fled, the driver said that police make him nervous. Also, he didn’t want the suspect to get arrested. The driver was arrested for fleeing and the suspect on the outstanding warrant. A third

passenger in the back seat was released.

SKINNY DRIVING 8:49 p.m. — Clyde Morris Boulevard and West Granada Boulevard Battery on an officer, DUI. A caller reported that a car, operated by a naked female, was driving around the neighborhood and had stopped at one point with the driver standing naked outside the vehicle. The officers found the car sitting in the Clyde Morris and West Granada intersection very close to the sidewalk. The driver had no pants on, but officers found pants in the car and were able to assist her in getting dressed. There was a strong smell of alcohol on her breath. The suspect said she did not understand why she was stopped. She would not answer questions and when asked to get out of the car, asked, “Why?” Finally, the suspect complied and had to be escorted to the sidewalk because she kept walking sideways into the roadway. She said she had not consumed any alcoholic beverages and would not take part in sobriety exercises. At one point, the suspect hit an officer with a closed fist and a scuffle ensued. The report noted that the officers’ uniforms and equipment were in “disarray” from the fight. Three officers were able to place her into a patrol car, where she yelled profanities and kicked the seat. She refused a breath test. The investigation showed she had been arrested multiple times for DUI and had previously refused a breath test. She was transported to the county jail.

SPORTS From Ethiopia to center stage at the Pro Bowl

JEFF DAWSEY SPORTS EDITOR

Zeli Hayworth lived in an orphanage six years ago; now he’s in the national championship of Punt, Pass and Kick Senior Madison Politis scores her fourth goal of the match.

A SENIOR NIGHT TO REMEMBER The Lady Sandcrabs’ four seniors reflect on their time together — and near future.

JEFF DAWSEY SPORTS EDITOR

T

he Seabreeze seniors may have played their final game at the Ormond Beach Sports Complex. Unlike some student-athletes who relocate over the course of several years, Amber Kelley, Skyler Mayo, Madison Politis and Alex Hoffman have only known the OBSC as their home field. Having grown up in this area, the four played on the same youth soccer squads, and now they’re making history together on the same team. HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Photos by Jeff Dawsey

Abby Gabriel heads a pass to her teammate.

Head coach Kim Merkel — then an assistant — remembers the girls when she first observed them on the field. “They come out as freshman, intimidated, not knowing their place on the team,” she said. “But, they’ve progressed every year to become leaders that we need them to be, to carry the rest of the team.” Politis has progressed the most, going from a three-goal and fourassist player in her sophomore season to scoring 28 goals while assisting on 23 as a junior. Through 14 games, she’s already scored 14 and assisted on 10 others. All the girls agree that their best moments over the last four years came last season as juniors: They beat Matanzas for the first time in several years, and they won their district championship.

SHUTOUT Seabreeze downed Leesburg 8-0 on senior night on Wednesday, Jan. 4, at the Ormond Beach Sports Complex. Senior Madison Politis scored four goals while assisting three others. Junior Alauna Neely scored two and assisted on another. And two of the other three seniors — Amber Kelley and Alex Hoffman — also scored goals. The other senior — Skyler Mayo — assisted on two goals. Taylor Nirschl and Kaylee Haas also had assists. District play for high school girls soccer will begin Monday, Jan. 16. Locations have not been determined.

Skyler Mayo sets up Politis for her second goal.

TEAM BONDING

Politis, Kelley, Hoffman and Mayo believe their preseason team-bonding retreats enabled them to pull off such feats. During those weekends, Merkel set up team-building competitions and conversations that allow the girls to understand each other. “We find out so much about each other that we never knew, and it makes us closer,” Politis said. Kelley agreed, saying, “It’s easier to play with people when you know them better.” Those bonding opportunities creep into practices and games, and they always please the coach. “When I see them get together in little groups, when we’re in between drills,” Merkel said, “and they’re getting water, I’ll see them just bust out laughing. That’s really cool. It lets me know that my team is getting along and enjoying soccer.”

Z

eli, 11, grew up in an Ethiopian orphanage with many other abandoned kids, hoping someone would take him away and provide a home. Finally, Zeli was adopted by the Hayworths — a sports-loving family who has afforded him an opportunity of a lifetime. NFL’s Pass, Punt and Kick program hosted a tournament at each of its 32 team locations for five age divisions. Zeli won his division competition and advanced — the only winner from Florida to do so. He will be one of four to compete at the National Punt, Pass and Kick Championship at the Pro Bowl on Jan. 29, in Orlando. “We were all excited for him,” said Maria Hayworth, his mother. “He would track the other team competitions every day to see where he stacked up, and, when he found out he made the Top 4, he was thrilled.” Zeli trains two times per week with his grandfather, Tony Melachrino, the former Mainland and Seabreeze coach. And, when his big brother, Sam Hayworth, former Seabreeze kicker and current Eastern Kentucky player, is in town, Sam helps strengthen his kicking game. Zeli believes he can win the competition. The top two boys in his division each scored 295 feet. Zeli totals around 300 feet on a regular basis. When Zeli first came over to America, his mother, Maria, said he was fascinated with the things we might deem most common. Lights in the house. Escalators in shopping stores. But, now, she says, after six years of living here, he’s been Americanized. “He’s pretty ticked off that he’s the only one in his elementary school that doesn’t have a cell phone,” she laughed. “That does not make him happy.” Zeli has also fallen in love with America’s favorite game and wishes to become a quarterback one day like Tom Brady, his favorite player. Going from an Ethiopian orphanage to center stage at an NFL Pro Bowl — what a journey!

The two-coach solution

Mainland chooses co-defensive coordinators. then Brown and Coach Roland did it when Roland first got here. Our record proves it has worked, and Coach O and I are going to produce the same style of defense.” “It won’t be hard considering we kind of already do it,” Oglesby added. “Our defensive game-plan meetings consist of the entire defense sitting down for hours together, watching film and then drawing up the other teams’ formations and coming up with our game plan.”

“We’ve talked about a lot of things we want to do, and everything’s the same philosophy. I don’t see us butting heads at all.” BO SADUSK, on becoming co-defensive coordinator with Willie Oglesby

Less than a month after Mainland’s former defensive coordinator, Travis Roland, took over as head coach at Flagler Palm Coast, Bucs coach Scott Wilson has named assistant coaches Bo Sadusk and Willie Oglesby Jr. as co-defensive coordinators. Both Sadusk and Oglesby joined the Bucs’ programs when Wil-

son became head coach in 2011. “These guys deserve it,” Wilson said. “They know the system and are great with our kids. They have the same vision and share the same concepts we’ve been using for years.” Sadusk has served as defensive line coach and Oglesby for defensive backs. Now serving as co-defensive coordinators, both agree that there will be no problems leading the defense. “He’ll be calling the secondary coverages, and I’ll be calling the front-seven alignment zones and blitzes,” Sadusk said. “We’ve done it before. Keynodo Hudson and Jonathan Brown did it, and

Oglesby was named All-American twice and All-Conference three times at Bethune-Cookman. He’s led as defensive coordinator at Tampa Robinson and coached running backs, special or defensive backs at several other high schools, including Pinecrest (North Carolina) and Spruce Creek. Sadusk played college ball at Nassau Community College in Long Island, New York. He went on to coach Pop Warner and 8v8 before beginning his time at Mainland. “We’re very good friends,” said Sadusk on his relationship with Oglesby. “We’ve talked about a lot of things we want to do, and everything’s the same philosophy. I don’t see us butting heads at all.” Courtesy photo

Sandy Mason with Garth Brooks

MUSIC MAKER

Sandy Mason also wrote “All I Wanna Do in Life,” which was recorded by Crystal Gayle, George Jones and Marianne Faithfull; Johnny Cash’s “After All” and more. She also contributed backing vocals to recordings by Garth Brooks, Gayle, Cash, Prine and others.

When Rick Shaw moved to Ormond Beach a few years ago, his cousin Sandy Mason paid him a visit. They were walking down his street when the songwriter noticed a house with a “for sale” sign. “She said, ‘I think I’ll buy that,’” Shaw recalled. “And then she bought it in a matter of days.” Though her life and career ended in Ormond Beach, it was a colorful and crazy road to get Sandy Mason here. Originally from Pennsylvania, Mason started out singing in the supper clubs of Chicago, and was even on TV as a ventriloquist. She had a variety show where she would introduce cartoons. Shaw would watch her every Saturday morning. Eventually, she started working for a publishing company writing songs. In 1967, her single “There You Go,” released on Hickory Records, peaked at No. 64. She released songs for other labels, contributed background vocals and released several of her own albums, but she found her greatest success as a songwriter. Her first success was Crystal Gayle’s “When I Dream,” which hit No. 3 on the country charts in 1979. The song was recorded by Nanci Griffith and Willie Nelson. Her biggest hit was “Two Pina Coladas,” which was recorded by Garth Brooks, and it topped the charts in late 1997. According to an article by The Tennesseean,

Honoring a legacy EMILY BLACKWOOD

songwriter Shawn Camp said they came up with the song after joking about going to the beach and buying a drink for each hand. “Sandy was always talking about going to Florida,” Camp said in the 2015 article. “I guess she finally made it.” That was the only song Mason wrote that was inspired by Ormond Beach. Shaw says her song, “They Were Here Today,” was inspired by the Fairchild Oak, a large live oak tree in Bulow Creek State Park. “She wrote that after spending some time there,” Shaw said. “She had wondered what all it had seen.” Mason died in April 2015 of complications from pancreatic cancer. She left her house and her publishing company to Shaw, who is making it his mission to preserve her legacy. “She just wanted people to hear her songs,” said Shaw’s mother, Barbara Shaw. That’s why Shaw created and produced, “Just A Dream: The Music and Artistry of Sandy Mason,” a musical about her unique career. It features music from the 1960s supper clubs through the rise of the Nashville music scene of the ’80s and ’90s, and stars Candice Cuchetti and the Just a Dream Band. “She felt that music was a way people could escape from reality and dream a little bit,” Shaw said. “This is the song track of her life.” The play will open at 7 p.m. Jan. 24 at Elks Lodge 2193, 285 Wilmette Ave. Tickets cost $15.

EMILY BLACKWOOD

When Melissa Bell was battling leukemia, lions were her thing. The 19-year-old shared the love of the animal with her mom, Mary Unson, and her father and brothers. After Bell died, Unson kept lions close to her heart — sometimes even without realizing it. “I have a thing for the man of the moon,” she said, her hands running over the lines of the face she had burned into a small piece of wood. “So when I made this necklace, a woman asked me what I had burned into the background. I looked closely and didn’t see anything. The woman said she saw a lion face. And once I saw it, I couldn’t unsee it.” Now, Unson wears the necklace every day to keep her daughter’s memory alive. In fact, Bell is the reason Unson is showing her woodburning work at Arts on Granada’s first exhibit. She recently quit her job as an MRI tech to pursue her artistic passions. “She used to give me a hard time,” Unson said with a smile.

Move over Starbucks, there’s a new coffee company in town. Gold Leaf Coffee Co. held a soft opening Jan. 9 to dozens of local residents eager to have a new place where they can pick up their morning cup of Joe. “It’s been great,” said Megan Corbett, who owns the shop with her husband, Dan Miller. “For Arts on Granada, it took weeks for people to notice on Facebook, but with this, it was literally overnight. People like quality coffee.” The shop is located inside Frame of Mind, 23 W. Granada Blvd., which is where the name originates. “Since we’re partnering with

Victoria, we thought Gold Leaf, like the gold leaf used on some of her frames,” Corbett said. Gold Leaf will mainly be roasting Steel Oak Coffee, a smallbatch specialty coffee roaster in Ormond Beach, but plans to feature other local roasters in the future. Steel Oak developed a blend of espresso called “Thrive,” for the shop, which Corbett says taste like “Florida in a cup.” The shop is set to have its grand opening in the next two weeks and will be serving espressos, kombucha, tea, morning milkshakes for kids and baked goods from Cakery Creation. Follow Gold Leaf Coffee Co. on Facebook for more information on the grand opening.
