No passport needed

for Flagler Film Festival

The fourth-annual Flagler Film festival is this weekend at the Hilton Garden Inn. JACQUE ESTES COMMUNITY EDITOR

Kathie Barry never thought about film festivals, not until four years ago when she attended one with her son, filmmaker Kevin James Barry. “I was inspired by the filmmakers we met,” Kathie Barry said. After attending another film festival, produced in Oklahoma, Barry started thinking about starting one in Flagler County. “Filmmakers appreciate these festivals,” Barry said. “Not everyone can go to Cannes, and this makes it accessible to them.” This year the festival features 60 films, and includes shorts and full-length films, as well as two free films to raise money for a local charity. The two free films are “Waves in Winter” and “Finless,” and their screening will benefit the Tommy Tant Memorial. Participating filmmakers are local Flagler filmmakers and filmmakers from around the world. Some are first-time film-

features interviews with Phil Collins, Eric Clapton, Lionel Richie, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Quincy Jones, Al Jarreau, Ray Parker Jr. and Vince Gill. Australian James Francis Khehtie directed “The Telegram Man,” a drama screened at more than 150 film festivals. Regarded as a film of artistic, cultural and historical significance by the Oscars Film Archive, the movie is part of its permanent collection at the Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study in Hollywood. The archive collects, preserves and provides access to moving images that represent significant contributions to the motion pictures. Several of the films being shown at the Flagler Film Festival have been screened at the Cannes Short Film Corner in France. The weekend event will end with an awards ceremony and a champagne reception on Sunday night after the films. “Most of these independent films were made with little or no money,” Barry said. “They have put some amazing things together. They are well thought out and produced, and they deserve to have an audience.”

makers; some are students; while some are multi-award winning film makers. Those wanting a sneak peak can go to Flaglerfilmfestival.com to see trailers of some of the longer films. Barry said she enjoys watching the filmmakers, who attend the festival, interact with each other and form friendships. “I see them on Facebook, and I know they met at my festival, and that’s very rewarding,” she said. Some of the films being screened include: “Borrowed Time,” by Lou Hamou-Lhadj and Andrew Coats, is a dramatic animation and was recently named in the top 10 list of finalists for the 89th Academy Awards. This is not a first collaboration for this team. They worked together on “Wall-E,” “Toy Story 3,” “Horton Hears a Who,” “Rio,” and “Cars 2.” “Nathan East: For the Record” is a feature film directed by Emmy Award-winner Chris Gero. The story is about talented and prolific bass player Nathan East and

Palm Coast Community Center $8 million expansion project to start in February The renovated, expanded building will be three times the size of the current one and is expected to be ready for use in March 2018. JONATHAN SIMMONS NEWS EDITOR

P

alm Coast’s new community center will be about three times the size of its current one, and construction is slated to begin in February. The renovated, expanded center will total 21,232 square feet, with three large “function rooms” — the smallest of which will be the former City Council chambers — plus two smaller rooms. Outdoor features will include a full-size basketball court, a play area, bike racks, a pond, a patio and a trailhead with restrooms. The project will update and

enlarge the current community center, which was constructed at the intersection of Palm Coast Parkway and Clubhouse Drive by ITT in 1975, and has had minimal updates since. Many of the trees on the property will remain there after the expansion. Palm Coast first unveiled plans for a major renovation and expansion of the Community Center in 2013. “I’d like to see this project moving forward quickly, because the sooner we get construction complete, the sooner our residents get to use our facilities,” Palm Coast Mayor Milissa Holland said at a Jan. 10 City Council workshop. The current plan for the expan-

sion project has Jan. 31 as the last day the center will be open, with construction beginning in early February and “substantial completion” in January 2018. The building would be ready for use in March 2018. All of the function rooms will have attached storage that could be used for city equipment of by community groups, said city Construction Manager Carl Cote, and all of the community events scheduled at the community center during the renovation period have been rescheduled or relocated. The City Council has not formally approved construction for the new building, but council members gave no sign at the Jan. 10 workshop that they won’t approve the plan when it comes up for a vote at the council’s upcoming business meeting. The total project cost is expect-

ed to be $7,997,500, with a proposed guaranteed maximum price of $7,830,036 for the construction phase. The council has not yet voted to approve the guarantee maximum price, which is higher than the city had estimated when the project was first conceived. “We’ve seen a substantial increase in cost of construction, just due to materials,” Holland said. A labor shortage has also increased the cost, she said. The proposed contract with the builder, Ajax Building, is an atrisk contract, with any cost overruns becoming the responsibility of the builder. Any savings would be divided between the city and the builder, with the city receiving 80% and the builder receiving 20%.

Flagler County may not be able to repair its hurricane-battered dune before the next hurricane season starts, leaving the portions of the county that got hit the hardest in hurricane Matthew unprotected if a 2017 storm sweeps in before the work is done. Hurricane season starts June 1, and sea turtle nesting season, after which all coastal construction on the dune must stop unless special permits are acquired, starts May 1. But the process of getting state and federal government money for major projects like dune repair and beach restoration tends to be a slow one: If the county went through the normal budget process, County Administrator Craig Coffey said, it wouldn’t get that money until July. Hurricane season and sea turtle nesting season would both have already started. And it takes time to do the actual construction work. The county is seeking emergency funding from the state to shore up the most damaged coastline, including the area that stretches roughly from Mala Compra Park to Washington Oaks Gardens State Park. Coffey estimated that would cost less than $10 million, while repairing all of it would take about $33 million. If the county gets emergency funding, it would likely have to

FLAGLER BEACH PASSES ANTI-SEAWALL RESOLUTION

The scramble to prepare the county’s dune for the upcoming hurricane season comes during a discussion between county, state and federal agencies over how to best handle the county’s coastal vulnerabilities for the long term. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been proposing a beach renourishment program for the area for years. The Florida Department of Transportation, after Hurricane Matthew,  proposed various solutions involving a seawall to protect State Road A1A. But the Army Corps has said that it won’t renourish the county’s beaches if the state puts in a seawall, because seawalls speed erosion on the ocean side of the wall.  Flagler Beach officials have repeatedly said they don’t want a wall project to jeopardize the Army Corps’ beach renourishment plan, and on Jan. 3 the Flagler Beach City Commission  unani-

oversee the construction work. County staff are already preparing requests for proposals for the work, Coffey said. At least some of the work would probably have to take place during see turtle nesting season, which would require special federal government permits and a process involving relocating any nests that are in the way of the construction project.

mously passed a resolution “urging the Florida Department of Transportation to communicate with the Army Corps of Engineers to ensure measures to protect/ reinforce State Road A1A will not impact the federal beach project.” The Army Corps proposal involved dredging sand from pits about seven miles offshore and moving it onto the beach. City commissioners were concerned about the dredged sand not matching the city’s cinnamoncolored coquina sand. “Our beach is what draws people here,” City Commissioner Joy McGrew said at a joint meeting with the County Commission Jan. 3. “You put something on our beach that changes the entire dynamic of our beach, what does that do?” Coffey told Flagler Beach commissioners that their opposition to a seawall within the city of Flagler Beach would be relayed to the state, but that the county would not guarantee that it wouldn’t support a seawall project elsewhere along the coast.  “There are people facing A1A ... they don’t have another option anymore,” he said. “The idea of, ‘You can’t put a seawall up, and let your million dollar house fall in — that’s not going to happen. We as a county are not going to say, ‘Guess what, sorry.’ ... We have sections of our county that may have to have seawalls, and we just have to figure out a way to offset those impacts some other way, if there are impacts.”

Washington Oaks beach still closed

JACQUE ESTES COMMUNITY EDITOR

The coquina rocks are still firmly in place on the beach at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park, but the rest of the beachside at the park didn’t fare as well. “Specifically, a little less than half of our parking lot on the north end was undermined to the point that the concrete collapsed on itself,” Park Services Specialist Amy Biedenbach said. “The boardwalk was completely destroyed and there were pieces scattered around. We found a large piece of it in the woods on the south end of the parking lot.” Biedenbach has a pretty good idea what happened during the storm through photos emailed to her from someone who rode out the storm and Marineland staff who checked on the property. Like every other stretch of beach in Flagler, various government entities are working toward a solution. “Federal, state and county governments are working together to determine what will be done,” Biedenbach said. The dunes were severely compromised, and the vegetation was completely destroyed. The park is taking a wait-and-see approach

to see which trees and scrub bush will return in the spring. Saw palmettos leaves are already evident. “A sand berm has been created to control additional erosion,” Biedenbach said. “It seems to be holding very well.” With the extent of damage up and down Flagler’s coastline, it will be a while before a long-term solution is decided upon. Even the staff doesn’t know what will be done, or when. What Biedenbach said they do know, is they want to get a temporary beach access in place for residents as soon as they can. “The damage created a safety concern, especially in the parking lot,” she said. “The game plan for us is to get the beach access open as soon as possible, and we are working on it as we speak.” The beach is known for its coquina rock outcropping on the sand and under the water, depending on tides, and Biedenbach said even Matthew couldn’t budge them. “The rocks are where they have been for thousands of years,” she said. “They are a geologic formation, and they aren’t going anywhere that easily.” Biedenbach said the community needs to respect that the area is closed; but the west side of the park with the gardens is open. “We don’t want cars to park outside the gate and people to walk around the gates into the closed off area. It just isn’t safe,” she said. “We will do what we can, one step at a time. That’s all we can do.”

Flagler Beach needs to weigh seawall Observer and other A1A options carefully “If we are to build a better world, we must remember that the guiding principle is this — a policy of freedom for the individual is the only truly progressive policy.”

What’s the difference between the options presented by the FDOT and the Army Corps? BY CHAD BODA GUEST WRITER

The FDOT presented its anxiously awaited ideas for possible long-term solutions to A1A’s erosion problems at a public workshop last month. Options involved either moving all or part of A1A further west or putting up a 5.2-mile seawall, neither of which are very popular with Flagler Beach elected officials or residents. The obvious alternative is the Army Corps of Engineers project, a 50-year, $45 million beach nourishment plan which has been in the works for over a decade. But this “solution” is now in danger if the FDOT were to build a seawall on A1A. Some local press has made it seem like the two options are fundamentally at odds. The FDOT’s proposed project is being presented as a narrowminded transportation fix that would hurt the environment, while the Army Corps’ project is being presented as an environmental restoration project that would save Flagler’s beach. Here’s an example from FlaglerLive published after the meeting: “The department’s priority is A1A, its studies are focused on A1A, its spending will be focused on A1A—not the beach. That’s the U.S. Corps of Engineers’ venue, and the Corps, in turn, is not interested in the road.” But this is a serious misrepresentation of the Army Corps project (the FDOT project, admittedly, is indeed a narrowminded transportation fix that will hurt the environment). In reality, these agencies fundamentally share the same goal, which is to reinforce A1A. To both the Army Corps and the FDOT, the question of which project is preferable is less a question of environment and more a question of cost. The FDOT is not bashful about the purpose of their project. The goal is clearly only to save A1A. The Army Corps project seems however somewhat more elusive since it involves dredging hundreds of thousands of cubic feet of sand

onto the beach. But as its name suggests, the Army Corps’ “Flagler County Hurricane and Storm Damage Reduction Project” is only interested in preventing damage to structures during storms. What structures, you ask? The answer: State Road A1A. About 95% of the “benefits” expected from the Army Corps project, described in the feasibility study released in 2014, are expected to be from avoiding damage to A1A, while only about 5% relate to protection of private property or other structures. No calculated benefits come from the environment. And the hoped for recreational and environmental improvements like more beach for citizens and tourists and more nesting habitat for sea turtles? Far from guaranteed. The Army Corps actually considers any recreational or environmental improvement caused by the project to be an “incidental” benefit, meaning that whether or not they actually happen is not really a serious a concern, as long as the project stays within budget. But, if they did happen, it would be nice. A kind of bonus, if you will. It is true that the potential environmental improvements that might be provided by the Army Corps nourishment project would be an improvement on what the FDOT is offering in terms of a seawall. But the evidence to suggest one should rely on beach nourishment to deliver its promises is shaky at best. So if that pathway is chosen, it is important to recognize the fairly high probability of disappointment. There is another option, but it is borderline heresy in Flagler Beach. The heretic idea is of course relocating A1A completely away from the beach, which the FDOT seems to be somewhat willing to consider. This option would provide a pathway that could genuinely lead to environmental improvements and a secured road at the same time. It also would improve the city’s capacity to adapt to the effects of climate

Among the options to fix A1A is to designate a road farther to the west as the new A1A.

change, such as sea level rise. It doesn’t, however, come without its own challenges, in particular intense social and political resistance by some residents. But the most sustainable solutions, which benefit both the environment and the community the most in the long run, may also involve making the most difficult decisions. The answer lies in the hands of the community, which is why

they owe it to themselves to fairly balance all the options. Anyway, I could think of worse ways to spend your free time than discussing and debating with your neighbor about how to create the best possible future. Chad Stephen Boda is a former Flagler Beach resident. He is working on a doctorate at the Lund University Center for Sustainability Studies, in Sweden.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ON FACEBOOK The following comments were made in response to the story that explained six options for A1A’s recovery. See the story here: bit.ly/2iASwBG.

“Moving onto the back roads is not an option! It was so dangerous when it was being used as that on South Daytona. My 15-year-old was almost hit multiple times walking from his bus stop, and another child was hit just down the street. There was little to no patrolling during that time. I’m already tired of the people tailgating with the 25 mph speed limit now.” – AMY EICHHOLZ BEARD

“#1 make sure NO climate change deniers included in anything to do with this project. #2 all of these options make me say ‘you HAVE to be kidding!’ ... These ‘OPTIONS’ are NOT remotely going to work. This project should be called ‘How to waste millions and millions of dollars and never begin to get a grasp on what our shorelines are facing.’ Scary Flagler, scary Florida.”

“I voted for option 2 at the meeting without having all the facts. I did not realize a seawall would eliminate the beach renourishment program. Eliminating the road totally can’t be an option unless something was devised to allow access to businesses and residences along the road. Bon Bell does have a point: the loss of the beach and road, and perhaps the barrier island itself, is inevitable. But why not continue to be able to enjoy the beach until that happens?” – BOB BARROWS

Late on Christmas night or early the following morning, a young man entered the closed Roma Court Academy building on Palm Coast Parkway, stole Christmas cards and slept on the school’s floor, according to a Flagler County Sheriff’s Office report. Roma Court Academy Program Director Mark Aitchison reported the incident to the Sheriff’s office at about 12:45 p.m. Jan. 2 after the school discovered the break-in, which was caught on school surveillance cameras. The footage showed the young man, who appeared to be in his late teens or early-to-mid-20s, searching through the school’s cabinets, appliances and containers, according to a Sheriff’s Office incident report. The burglar stole an LG tablet, a speaker and Christmas cards that contained money for employees. He also stole food and juice from a classroom, and deputies believe he slept in the laundry room at the rear of one of the classrooms: Employees found a small sleeping area with a mattress, pillows and some personal belongings, and there was “a strong odor of body odor coming from the laundry room,” according to the report.

The suspect was caught on the school’s surveillance cameras.

The stolen LG tablet was worth about $350. The burglar may have stayed “an extended amount of time,” according to the report: There were two gloves placed over two cameras inside the classroom, and a deputy found “a large amount of trash,” according to the report. Roma Court Academy was the site of another incident requiring law enforcement involvement in September, when a 3-year-old boy escaped from a recreation area at the school. A local delivery driver found the toddler wandering along the middle of Palm Coast Parkway. The boy was fine, and deputies returned him to his family.

Falsely arrested man sues Sheriff’s Office Dakota Ward was arrested after a deputy confused his identity with that of another man, De’Coda Ward. JONATHAN SIMMONS NEWS EDITOR

A young man falsely arrested by Flagler County Sheriff’s Office deputies last year because of a name mix up has sued the Sheriff’s Office. Dakota Ward was 19 when three Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived at his home in Bunnell March 26 to arrest him for failing to appear in court over a battery charge. But deputies were pursuing the wrong man: The man who’d been involved in the battery incident

and hadn’t appeared in court was named De’Coda Ward, not Dakota Ward. The two young men had been mixed up with each other even as children, with Dakota receiving De’Coda’s disciplinary reports. But March 26, Dakota was booked at the county jail in De’Coda’s place. Dakota Ward filed his suit against the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office Dec. 16. The legal complaint states that he was arrested despite his “insistence that he was the wrong ‘Dakota Ward.’” Ward’s attorney, Joshua Davis, previously

told the Palm Coast Observer that Ward would be suing for the maximum amount allowable under the law: $200,000. The mixup that led to Dakota Ward’s arrest began when a deputy taking case notes on a Dec. 15, 2015, battery incident wrote the suspect’s name as Dakota, even though witnesses had written the suspect’s name as De’Coda and the two men looked different and had different addresses. The deputy didn’t go to meet the suspect at the location witnesses said he lived. Instead, he plugged the name “Dakota Ward” into a driver’s license database and recorded Dakota’s identifying information as the suspect’s. The deputy,

James Gore, was suspended three days without pay after the Sheriff’s Office investigated the error. The legal complaint states that Ward’s arrest took place without

probable cause. “An officer is held to a reasonable person standard when determining whether probable cause exists,” the complaint states. “Flagler County Sheriff’s Office deputies’ arrest of plaintiff was not reasonable. Flagler County Sheriff’s Office deputies failed to confirm the identity of the plaintiff by ignoring the physical description, correct spelling of the suspect’s name, and the address listed for the suspect contained within the original complaint.” Ward’s arrest took place under the administration of former sheriff Jim Manfre. His successor, Rick Staly, will head the agency as it handles Ward’s lawsuit.

Stolen items found in search of suspect’s Palm Coast home JONATHAN SIMMONS NEWS EDITOR

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office has recovered vehicles, guns, jewelry and other items stolen during the first theft to occur under newly elected Sheriff Rick Staly’s watch. Some of the property, recovered in a search warrant served Jan. 5, was stolen in an incident that occurred in the early morning hours of Jan. 3 at 64 Fleming Court, shortly after Staly officially became sheriff at midnight. The Sheriff’s Office held a press conference Jan. 6 to highlight its recovery of the stolen property. “This one was a little personal, like, ‘How dare you do a burglary as soon as I become sheriff,’” Staly said. Deputies recovered most of the stolen items during the Jan. 5 search of a suspect’s house on Big Bear Lane. They expect to charge three juveniles and one adult. The early-morning burglary on Fleming Court was discovered Jan. 3 when relatives of the victims, who were out of town, came to check on the house and discovered the crime. The person who discovered the burglary, Staly said, tried to remove other items from the house to protect them, but as he did so, he left his keys in his 2000 silver Toyota 4Runner in the driveway. “The people who did the initial burglary then stole his car,” Staly said. A Bunnell Police Department officer soon found the empty SUV. A deputy got a tip about a juvenile who might have been involved, and deputies developed probable cause to search his home. They found a number of items stolen from the home burglarized on Fleming Lane Jan. 3 and from another house burglarized on the same street. They believe some of the other property they recovered was stolen from other homes, and hope the owners will come forward to claim them. The recovered items included a stolen Ford Mustang, a jon boat, two pellet guns, a MAC-10 style handgun, ammunition and magazines, a crossbow, jewelry, purses, an Xbox and an iPhone 6.

County extends lease with Agricultural Museum

BRIEFS Bunnell man charged with shooting at former employee

The 60-day extension gives the county, state and the museum’s board an extra 60 days to work out a long-term solution for the museum. JONATHAN SIMMONS NEWS EDITOR

County Administrator Craig Coffey said at the meeting. “Really the main expense coming out of it is salaries that we’re dealing with right now,” Coffey said at the meeting. The county has not transferred over the museum’s utility or light bills, he said. Coffey said that he planned to bring the County Commission a “concept outline, at the 30,000foot level,” for a long-term plan for the museum, with a new direction. The plan would have the museum employees become employees of the museum and not the county, and would maintain “a clearer line of separation” between the museum and the county, Coffey said. The museum would remain the state museum, and would own its own property.

Commissioner Nate McLaughlin, who’d voted against the 90-day arrangement in October, said he’d met with Department of Agriculture officials about the issue, and the county has the state’s support. “There’s an agreement coming up that we’re going to be able to keep the museum here in Flagler County, and it will remain an expense of the state,” he said. “We’ll sponsor it as we have historically, they’ll just have a few less assets landwise than they have. We’re looking at an opportunity to expand the size of the Princess Place with some of that surrounding property. … I’m encouraged, a little more encouraged, than you might have seen at the special meeting that we had.”

The Florida Agricultural Museum will get a bit more time to work through financial issues that threatened to close the museum, or force it to sell off road-front property to stay open. The Flagler County Commission in an October special meeting voted to lease the property for $1 a month for 90 days to allow the county’s insurance company to cover the Agricultural Museum, which was losing its own insurance and would be unable to allow its most profitable activities — equestrian — to continue without coverage. At a County Commission meeting Jan. 9, commissioners voted to extend that ease an additional 60 days as the county, the museum board and the state work out a long-term solution. The county had budgeted about $75,000 for the expense of the museum’s upkeep during the interim period, and has spent about $33,000 or $34,000,

Morris Tesh, 57, was prepared to confront a former employer who’d given him a bad job reference. He wasn’t prepared for that confrontation to end with his former boss firing a gun at him, but that’s what happened, according to a Flagler County Sheriff’s Office report. The confrontation happened at about 5 p.m. Jan. 9, when Tesh drove out to a barn that his former boss, Alan Russell, was building in Bunnell. Tesh had heard from a potential employer that Russell had said not to hire Tesh, according to the Sheriff’s Office report. But when Tesh got out of the truck, Russell, 54, “came out yelling at him with a hammer in his hand,” according to a deputy’s summary of Tesh’s report. Russell yelled at Tesh to leave the property, and Tesh asked him if he was going to use his hammer, Tesh later told a deputy. Russell replied that he had something better, and then walked back to the barn and came out with a gun, Tesh said. Tesh got into the truck, and Russell returned with the gun. He “heard a loud bang, and his front drivers side window exploded glass into his face,”according to the deputy’s report. Tesh at first thought he’d been shot. He sped off and called the Sheriff’s Office. When deputies spoke to Russell, heJeff said he’d had problems Evans, Agent

with Tesh in the past. Russell said he’d swung his hammer toward Tesh and had instead struck the truck window. A deputy determined that the hole in the truck window was “consistent with that of a bullet hole and not likely to be caused by being struck with a hammer,” and found a fragment of a bullet round on the floor of the truck. Deputies arrested Russell and charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Councilman proposes changing city vision statement City Councilman Steven Nobile finds the city administration’s vi-

sion statement — “To be recognized as one of Florida’s premier cities in which to live, work and play” — not evocative enough. “Our vision statement says that it doesn’t matter what we do as long as we do it well, and generally that’s what it’s saying: ‘We want to be a premier city, so whatever we do, we want to be the best at,’” Nobile said at a City Council workshop Jan. 10. “That’s more of a mission, not a vision. ... Vision is where do you want to be. … Where do we see ourselves in the long end.” Nobile’s comments came as City Administration Coordinator Denise Bevan presented the council with an update on the city’s 2017 Strategic Action Plan and budget process. Palm Coast Mayor Milissa Holland said she felt the Strategic Action Plan’s timeline could move faster. “We’re all new, and I think this is a new day, a new opportunity,” she said. Both Nobile and Holland praised the mechanisms the city has included in the Strategic Action Plan to set goals and objectives on various issues and work toward achieving them.

When cities undertake road projects to change the number of lanes on a street, that usually means an expansion. But for Palm Coast’s Citation Parkway — a 0.4-mile roadway stretching between Seminole Woods Boulevard and Sesame Boulevard — the city government is planning to do the opposite, and remove two of the road’s four lanes. The change will let the city construct a multi-use path alongside the road, eliminate the stop light at the intersection of Sesame Boulevard and Citation Parkway, replace an ailing bridge on Sesame Boulevard and give city staff and Florida Power & Light workers access to city property.

Salvo holds last show, plans move to new location

OUR 2017 LINE-UP HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!

Salvo Art Project co-owners J.J. Graham and Petra Iston are considering buying a 5,500 square-foot building in Bunnell. JONATHAN SIMMONS NEWS EDITOR

Gift Certificates Available!!!

The Salvo Art Project held its last show Jan. 5 as the gallery prepared to move out of its space at Nature Scapes behind State Road 100. The show featured the paintings of 18-year-old Harrison Huijskens, who has taken classes with gallery co-owner J.J. Graham for about nine years. “It’s become a second home to me,” said Huijskens, who said he’ll follow Graham and Salvo co-owner Petra Iston to any new location. Where Salvo will go next has not yet been finalized, Graham said, but he and Iston hope to buy a building they found in Bunnell that is slightly smaller than Salvo — about 5,500 feet. “We do have a letter of intent on the property,” said Graham, who declined to specify the building’s address. “We’re going to be owners, so we don’t have any more issues.” Salvo was evicted from Nature Scapes after years of dispute with the property’s owners, and was required to vacate the property by Jan. 7. (Read more about the eviction at bit.ly/2j1vcOu.) By the Jan. 5 show, most of the building’s artist studios had been emptied of their paintings and sculptures, and many of Graham’s and Iston’s works had been moved out and prepared for storage.

Musicians — sitar player Rick de Yampert, rock and soul band Caroline Drive, and Beatles tribute band Glass Onion — played as patrons milled about the gallery on its final night. Graham was ready to make the move. “I’m glad we’re leaving, actually,” he said. “I’m happy to go.” If he and Iston buy the building they’re considering, he said, their monthly mortgage payments will be about half of what they’ve been paying in rent at Salvo, and they won’t have to worry about a landlord. Artists who’ve rented space at Salvo, Graham said, plan to come to the new location, which will offer more room for individual artist studios. “It’s a new canvas,” Graham said. “We’ll work with the space to make it interesting, and we’ll figure it out.”

SPORTS Go for history — if you’re close enough to reach it

JEFF DAWSEY SPORTS EDITOR

S ICYMI The Lady Pirates topped the DeLand Bulldogs 3-1. Claire Slamka opened the scoring for Matanzas, when she rebounded Alyssia Piaz’s ball from the goalkeeper and put it in the net. Miracle Porter scored the other two goals for the Pirates at the end of the the first half and the beginning of the second half. Hannah Hile assisted Porter on one of the goals.

Miracle Porter now needs 13 goals to become third in U.S. high school history.

PIRATES WIN, Miracle Porter breaks record

Claire Slamka rebounds the ball from the goalkeeper and puts in the Lady Pirates’ first goal.

Porter gets 230, setting a new goal-scoring mark in Florida. JEFF DAWSEY SPORTS EDITOR

She scored 68 goals her freshman season, 76 sophomore year. She notched 37 more as a junior, and it has taken 49 goals through her 18 matches this season for Matanzas senior Miracle Porter to break the Florida all-time goals record. It happened against DeLand on Friday, Jan. 6, at Matanzas. “It feels amazing to finally get that record,” Porter said. “I’ve never been nervous for a game, but I was more nervous this game than any other time in my life.” Over the last several decades, thousands of young girls have donned their team jerseys to represent their high school soccer teams in Florida. Andrea Sellers isolated herself from the rest,

when she became the nation’s second most — and Florida’s — all-time goal scorer with 229 goals from 1994-97. With a few more games to go until the district tournament, Porter can now separate herself even further from Sellers and her record that has stood for 20 years. Pirates coach Tony Benvenuto has coached Porter for the last four years, but he refuses to take any credit for what she’s accomplished. “I’d hate to take any credit for the abilities she was born with,” he said. “I was just at the right place at the right time. Just being a part of this journey is great. It’s great for Matanzas, and it’s great for the soccer program.” Fe l l ow se n i o r L ea n n a Ballschmieder has played with Porter each of the last four years, and she has a few reasons to celebrate her teammate’s new state record. “I know it’s really exciting for her; that’s a really big accomplishment,” she said. “Not a lot of people can do that. And I’m excited too, because I’ve assisted her on a lot of those goals.” UP NEXT, TOP 3?

Miracle now has a shot to move into the national Top 3 all-time, if she can pass Rachel Alexander’s (Louisiana) 242-goal mark. Porter needs 13 goals. “It’s another accomplishment I want to reach,” Porter said, “and I’m ready to put in the work to make it there.”

enior Miracle Porter scored nine first-half goals to lead Matanzas to a 16-0 win over Ed White. All the goals were scored in the first 40 minutes of the game. I remember wincing, when I heard about this. There is no doubt about it. Coach Tony Benvenuto wanted Miracle to capture Florida’s alltime scoring record — which she did — and Porter wanted it even more. Treading on the path to that record raised issues like the ethics of blowing out teams and risking player safety in pursuit of gaudy numbers. When I first thought about this, I felt more against than for it. To embarrass teams for the sake of a record seems a bit prideful. And what if Porter snaps an ankle in a blowout match, therefore sending the Lady Pirates’ hopes of any postseason success down the drain? Would the risk be worth it? But after more consideration, I agree with Miracle and Coach. When athletes compete in their sports and approach distinguished records, I’ll say everything legal is fair in attempts to break those records. I understand opposing players, parents and coaches may disagree, which is their right, but moments like these only come once in a lifetime. And yes, Porter could’ve gotten injured, when Matanzas was either winning or losing by six goals in meaningless, garbage time. I’m sure she and Benvenuto understood that. There will be risks in everything we do that’s noteworthy, and it’s our right to take those chances or not. While talking with FPC track coach David Halliday a few days ago, he shared with me how the winner and fourth-place runner in the 100-meter dash at the Rio Olympics were separated by just 0.12 seconds. Then, he asked if I remembered his name. I don’t remember any of their names — except the winner’s. The truth is few players from winning and losing teams will remember most of the scores from the individual matches this season. But, whether anyone remembers or forgets who Florida’s all-time goal scorer is from here until her record is broken, they will be able to look up at the record board, and Miracle Porter will be sitting at the top.

in the coaches division in 2015. Thanks to a new Atlantic High School that was completed and opened up in 1994, Halliday began his coaching right after college, and the winning followed. It’s not the mere X’s and O’s that have garnered success for Halliday. He credits his ability to create relationships with his players. “I’ve been in three weddings of former runners of my mine,” Halliday said. “You probably can’t say that about a lot of coaches. And I will probably be in a few

more weddings. That’s a relationship developed over a long period of time. I don’t have mindless soldiers, but I think the majority of my kids throughout my career would run through the wall for me, not because I told them to or because they believed in me, but because they knew I believed in them.” A COACHING FATE?

Coach Halliday found an essay he had written his sophomore high school that said he wanted

Coastal Florida Police & Fire Pipes & Drums are part of the Inaugural Parade JACQUE ESTES COMMUNITY EDITOR

L

ike many of us, Jack Kelly screens calls from phone numbers he doesn’t recognize. So when the 202 area code of Washington, D.C., showed up on his home phone in December, he let it go to voicemail, except the caller didn’t leave a message. Instead, the same number immediately called his cell phone. The caller was from the Presidential Inauguration Committee, notifying him that Coastal Florida Police & Fire Pipes & Drums, based out of Palm Coast, had been selected to march in the 58th Inaugural Parade on Jan. 20. Kelly, the pipe major for the pipes and drums band, submitted the application for consideration after an offhand comment following the group’s weekly practice at the Portuguese American Club. “We said, ‘Wouldn’t it be great to march in the Inauguration

Parade?’” Drum Major Vinnie Gough said. “Jack took it more seriously and submitted the initial application without telling us.” To the group’s surprise, they made it through various application stages, and Gov. Rick Scott sent his recommendation to the inauguration committee. “We were really surprised when we heard back,” Gough said. “They usually get around 2,0003,000 applications from bands. We were going to march whoever won; we’re not a political group. We are doing this for historical reasons. It’s a great honor.” Thirty-two members of the group will march as they play “Scotland the Brave” in front of the reviewing stand at the White House, in memory of President Trump’s mother, who was born in Scotland. “Vinnie will give a nice, crisp salute, and then it will be over: our 15 minutes of fame,” Kelly said. Since the band learned of their good fortune, they have been try-

ing to raise a small one to pay for their trip. “It is up to the bands to pay for their own transportation and lodging,” Gough said. “We are a warm weather band and it’s going to be cold, so we are also going to have to buy additional uniform items for the weather.” Gough said that these trips typically cost bands anywhere from $60,000 to $100,000. “We wheeled and dealed, and pinched some pennies, and have gotten our cost down to about $35,000 to $40,000,” Gough said. On Sunday, Jan. 8, the band had a fundraiser, performing at three stops in Flagler County, to give local residents an idea of what the inaugural performance will be like and collect donations. “We did get a $2,500 anonymous donation from a Washington, D.C., supporter who wants to challenge Palm Coast businesses and residents to try and beat that,” said Danielle Pierro, a tenor drummer and only female

in the group. The group, primarily made up of active duty and retired law enforcement and firefighters, performs at funerals and retirement ceremonies. Most recently, they performed at the service for Nassau County Sheriff’s Deputy Eric Oliver, who was killed in the line of duty. Oliver was one of 140 police officers and 88 firefighters killed in 2016. “We are dedicating our march this year to fallen officers and firefighters,” Kelly said. “Each piper and drummer will have a couple of mourning pennants on their pipes.” Flagler County firefighter Lt. John Keppler, a tenor drummer, will also carry his own list. Keppler’s father, John Keppler Jr., also a Flagler County firefighter, died in the line of duty in 2002. “I’m a member of the fallen firefighter support group, and we are a big family,” Keppler said. Keppler said the support group was pleased the band would bring the names of the fallen in 2016 to the parade, but many wanted their loved ones also included. “Being that my father was a fallen firefighter, I will bring the names of all the fallen first responders with me,” he said tapping his heart. “Every time I think about my dad, I think about everyone else that has fallen in the line of duty.” Before heading home, the band hopes to have time to see some of the nation’s capital. “Hopefully after parade we will be able to go around with the photographer and take shots in front of different monuments,” Kelly said. “We are going to be bragging about this for the next 20 years, so I want photo proof.”

Flag finally flies over Disabled American Veterans DAV had a dedication ceremony at ‘new’ location.

COMMUNITY EDITOR

It’s been more than a year since the Disabled American Veterans Jim Booe Chapter 86 moved from Flagler Beach to 27 Florida Park Drive, but it didn’t seem quite right to treasurer Larry Rekart. That changed on Monday, Jan. 9, when a flag was raised to the top of the new flagpole. “It wouldn’t be a veterans building without a flagpole,” Rekart said. The flagpole from the Flagler Beach site had been cut and brought to the new location, but then they had to have it installed. Local officials gathered to help officially dedicate the building. “This was the last thing on the punch card list,” Rekart said. “We had to have a mini celebration after a year of hard work.” Chapter 86 works in conjunction with the Salvation Army and the Veterans Administration to provide transportation and veteran services to disabled veterans. Rekart, a veteran of Vietnam, is particularly proud of the chap-

ter’s work with homeless veterans. “Working with the Salvation Army and the VA, two years ago Flagler County became the first in Florida, the first in the country, to come up with Functional Zero Homeless veterans,” Reckart said. “We had members who went out into the woods to find veterans and we opened our doors, as did the other veteran organizations in town.” By the end of 2015, Rekart said the county was notified that every vet who wanted to be was off the streets. A program the organization thought might be phasing out, Veterans in Transition, was initially started for Vietnam Veterans, but it became evident there were still veterans to help. “We realized there was a whole group of people coming back after rotating out of Afghanistan and Iraq every six months, over and over again,” Rekart said. Getting to and from doctor appointments can be a challenge for some veterans. Rekart spoke about one couple he met, an older veteran and his wife. “The man told me he had a doctor appointment but no way to get there,” Rekart said. “He said he could get someone to stay with his wife, but he couldn’t drive.” Rekart told him, “Your problems are over,” and explained the transportation service. The DAV drives veterans to and from

their appointment wherever they might be: Jacksonville, Orlando, Gainesville, Daytona Beach and even St. Petersburg. Rekart knows first-hand the frustration of the paperwork involved. “I had my own case that I tried to file when we were in Massachusetts,” he said. “I was trying to wind my way through the myriad of paperwork and forms when I went into the Springfield, Mass., DAV office. The woman told me pretty much what we tell our members: “Your problems are over.” That experience was in part what prompted Rekart to volunteer at the DAV. “It was that and an article in your paper about the DAV in Flagler Beach, and how they were helping veterans,” he said. “And

as they say, ‘The rest is history.’” Rekart is one of nearly 50 volunteers who do what they can to help local veterans. He said the organization is blessed with some generous benefactors, a big help for those trying to serve the nearly 500 DAV members. “They realize all the money they give us stays in Flagler County,” Rekart said. The group has an active Women’s Auxiliary. To be a member of the DAV, the veteran has to have a disability or have filed a claim and given an award of zero to 100%, while the auxiliary is open to anyone who wants to help. Whether it’s offering Tai Chi classes, preparing Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets, or helping out a family in time of crisis, the DAV is there to help.

My Samantha may look aloof, but it’s all an act. She likes to be around people.

wasn’t a bit put out about being left behind. Cats do have a way of expressing their feelings. Some claw up the furniture, climb the curtains, dig up plants, or in this case, take every single toy out of Kodi’s toy box and strew them around the house. Yep, she wasn’t a happy feline and she made sure to let us know. When we watch TV, she jumps up on my husband’s lap, despite the fact that he “plays” with her (substitute the word “annoys” here). She lets him know she isn’t happy with the attention, but she doesn’t leave. She likes to be around us and touching. It is not uncommon for her to follow me from room to room. Sometimes she will come when called. That’s how I know she still has her independent streak: She doesn’t always come when called — only when she feels like it. Do you have a pet with personality?

Samantha has me questioning the age-old stereotypes. Aloof, indifferent, solitary: These are all words that have been used to describe cats. As I write this, the two dogs in this household are nowhere to be seen, but Samantha, my “aloof” cat is curled up next to me. If I get up, there is an excellent chance that she will uncurl, stretch and soon follow, and it’s not even dinner time. The first time I realized that Samantha, who at best tolerates the dogs, was a “people cat” was when we left her at the house while we were on a day trip. I should mention, a one-dog family at the time, we took Kodi the corgi with us. Samantha noticed. Samantha doesn’t like car rides, does not walk on a leash, and would not have had a good time. That didn’t mean she

BUSINESS OBSERVER CUE NOTE BILLIARD ROOM OWNER RECEIVES MASTERS IN JAZZ PERFORMANCE

Oliv Epicurean Grill Courtesy photos

Oliv Epicurean Grill: Fast-casual eatery coming to Island Walk A fast-casual Mediterranean grill from Daytona Beach is beginning what the main investor calls a “national expansion,” and the first step beyond Daytona will be Island Walk, in Palm Coast. Oliv Epicurean Grill, which has strong reviews online, boasts fresh, healthy food, with everything made daily. “We locally source,” said investor Dan Moon, of Chicago. “That’s our first priority. And nothing’s frozen.” The specialties include vegan and Greek food, and Moon says the atmosphere will remind guests of dining in New York or Chicago.

The price point will be in the range of $15-$17, while the national fast-casual standard is more like $8-$11, Moon said. But given the success in Daytona Beach, he plans to expand not only to Palm Coast but three to five more restaurants per year in the future in Volusia County. The plan is to fill two units in the northwest corner of Island Walk, near the Old Kings Road entrance. Oliv will begin construction and open in the fall of 2017.

Cue Note Billiard Room coowner Mica Bethea has earned a two-year master’s degree in Jazz Performance, focusing on competition and writing, from the University of North Florida. The degree will assist the company in bringing more live music to Cue Note for the weekly Sunday Jazz Brunch, held every Sunday except the last Sunday of the month. The events have been drawing a crowd of between 50 to 60 people each week. Linda Cole continues to be the main headliner. For more information about the bar, restaurant or the billiard room leagues, call 445-5741 or visit cuenotebilliardroom.com.

FLORIDA ORAL & FACIAL SURGICAL ASSOCIATES MARKS SIX DECADES

BOUTIQUE AND SKIN CARE BUSINESS OPENS IN EUROPEAN VILLAGE

When the practice began in 1956, it was the only one of its kind in the Daytona Beach area. It began with the doctor, three staff members and a small patient roster. But what a difference six decades makes. Today, it is known as Florida Oral & Facial Surgical Associates, employs four doctors and 50 staff members – and it celebrated its 60th anniversary last year, serving patients worldwide. “No one in Volusia or Flagler County was familiar with our specialty at that time we first opened our doors,” said Dr. John O. Akers, who has been an integral part of the practice for nearly 36 years. “We have always been the go-to practice in facial trauma cases.” Florida Oral & Facial Surgical Associates has three locations, including one at 21 Hospital Drive, Suite 180, in Palm Coast. Visit floridaoralfacial.com or call 252-6438.

Sara Fishbein, a licensed cosmetologist and esthetician, has opened a new boutique, Sara’s at European Village, 101 Palm Harbor Village, Suite 115. She offers facials as well as the latest skin care technology, including cosmetic microcurrent facial sculpting and microneedling. Originally from Connecticut, Fishbein is a graduate of the Aveda Institute and relocated to Palm Coast in June. Call 864-8306 or visit facebook.com/sarasateuropeanvillage.
