FOREWORD

Why send reporters to Bike Week, where they’re sexually harassed?

2018 CRUZE

$15,400 1 BRIAN MCMILLAN EXECUTIVE EDITOR

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@palmcoastobserver.com.

School safety legislation passes

the threat

School district, Sheriff’s Office hope to increase number of school deputies from six to 13.

JONATHAN SIMMONS

JONATHAN SIMMONS NEWS EDITOR

Florida Gov. Rick Scott on March 11 signed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act. Here are some highlights of the new legislation, according to a news release from the governor’s office:

NEWS EDITOR

Local officials hope to more than double the number of school resource deputies in Flagler County’s public schools, increasing their number from six to 13. They will not arm teachers and school staff to stop a potential school shooter. “I feel the only folks that should be protecting our students are deputy sheriffs or fully trained police officers,” Flagler Schools Superintendent James Tager said March 8 in a joint press conference with Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly in the resource center at Buddy Taylor Middle School. Although Tager has no interest in the “guardian” aspect of the school safety legislation passed at the state level, he thanked Gov. Rick Scott and state lawmakers for making school safety a priority in the aftermath of the shooting in Parkland. The school district tried to undertake projects to increase school security years ago, he said, but voters in 2013 rejected a referendum to raise property taxes to increase the district’s budget. The district will need state money, he said, to pay to add the additional deputies. In the meantime, the district will have every teacher and student participate in active shooter scenario training through the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office. The training will be tailored to be ageappropriate for middle and elementary school students, while high school students will receive full active shooter training. The district also hopes to have a school psychologist in every school. Right now, it’s close: The district has eight school psychologists and nine public schools. SCHOOL HARDENING

After the Sandy Hook shooting, Tager said, the district “made as many updates as fiscally available to protect our students,” requiring teachers and staff to lock doors during the school day, conducting drills and retrofitting most campuses with single-entry points with automatic locking doors. “I can tell you that they checked my license when I walked in the door today,” he said. “I’m not sure if I’ve gotten it back yet, but they took it.” The district also has surveillance camera systems in its schools. The Sheriff’s Office, Staly said, will help assess weaknesses in school security. “Superintendent Tager, our staffs and myself have been talking and meeting about school safety since before and certainly since the tragic shooting in Broward County,” Staly said. Staff from the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office’s homeland security section will be conducting unannounced vulnerability

assessments at each school, he said. A solution to one structural security problem is already in progress. The Sheriff’s Office’s radios, as well as those worn by other first responders, don’t work inside school buildings. When Bunnell Elementary School was placed on lockdown March 7 after a 13-year-old allegedly threatened a student with a weapon, a Bunnell Police Department officer who was already on the campus couldn’t be reached on his radio, Staly said. The county plans to switch over to a new system to fix the problem, but that solution is two or three years out. School district staff and School Board members are also considering various structural upgrades, Tager said. The district can’t yet disclose all of them, but some include improved fencing and improved door and window locks, and protective film. STOPPING A SHOOTING

Staly, like Tager, doesn’t want to arm the district’s teachers and school staff. Residents have the right to keep firearms to protect their own lives, he said, but arming people to protect someone else is “a different matter,” requiring extensive training and psychological testing. And, he added, teachers and school staff might know a potential shooter personally and hesitate to kill them. Shooting to wound, he said, is TV stuff — not realistic. “Taking a life or running toward an incident is a very difficult choice to make,” he said. Law enforcement officers, he said, are trained to do that. “My deputies have made that choice,” he said. Sheriff’s Office deputies are also trained on AR-15s, he said. Before the Columbine school shooting, he said, standard procedure for law enforcement offi-

cers in such a situation was to contain the situation and wait for a SWAT team. Columbine changed that thinking. Staly has directed deputies to respond immediately to any potential school shooter. “I would expect my resource deputies to immediately engage ... that person and stop the threat,” he said. “We train for the worst, we pray we never need it. ... We will kill any active shooter or attacker anywhere in this county.” Staly said he could support deputizing former law enforcement officers and veterans to perform school perimeter security checks under the supervision of a deputy, but only with extensive backgrounds checks, legal and firearms training, and the support of the School Board. In the meantime, he’s directed Citizens Observer Patrol members and Sheriff’s Office deputies to perform extra patrols around the schools. He’s also implemented a zero tolerance policy for school threats and ordered that a detective be assigned to each of them. “You don’t make those comments ... just because you’re angry or upset,” he said. At the time he spoke, the agency had responded to 21 threats on school campuses since Feb. 15. One case had led to an arrest, and others are under investigation. Having more deputies on campuses, Staly said, will help build bridges between students and law enforcement officers. But, “It is not just a law enforcement and School District solution. Parents must be involved,” he said. “As sheriff, I am the chief law enforcement officer of the county. But parents should be the chief law enforcement officer of their home and with their children. It is time that parents be parents again, and not just friends to their children. ... Get involved in your child’s life before it’s too late.”

n Lets law enforcement officers seize firearms of people who are involuntarily detained for mental health reasons under the state’s Baker Act, and bans people who’ve been committed to a mental institution or adjudicated mentally detective from owning a gun n Creates “Risk Protection Orders” thorough with a court can ban a mentally ill or violent person from possessing or owning a firearm n Bans bump stocks n Bans the sale of firearms to people under 21, with exceptions for the purchase of rifles or shotguns by law enforcement officers and members of the military n Creates a three-day waiting period for gun sales, with exceptions for the purchase of rifles or shotguns by law enforcement or corrections officers, members of the military and people who’ve completed a hunter safety course

JONATHAN SIMMONS NEWS EDITOR

County Commission candidates Nate McLaughlin, Greg Hansen and Joe Mullins talked about the county’s challenges, and their plans to deal with them, during a March 7 candidate forum held at Palm Coast City Hall by the Flagler County Republican Club. Hansen, McLaughlin and Mullins are all Republicans, and McLaughlin and Hansen are incumbents. McLaughlin has served on the commission since 2010 and is in his second term, while Mullins, a local businessman who says he has lived in Flagler County full-time since 2015, is challenging him for the District 4 seat. Hansen, the commissioner representing District 2, was appointed to that position by Gov. Rick Scott in January 2017 after the death of the late commissioner Frank Meeker. Hansen is being challenged by Dustin Savage, a construction consultant who is running as a no-party-affiliation candidate. Because Savage wasn’t present for the Republican forum, Hansen didn’t have a direct challenger. The forum consisted of a series of issue questions answered by all three candidates — each had two minutes each per question — plus candidates’ introductions and concluding remarks. McLaughlin and Hansen

defended the county’s record on spending and infrastructure projects, while Mullins, in a few cases, challenged it. He also set himself apart during the first question after introductions by praising President Donald Trump, while McLaughlin and Hansen didn’t make such allusions to national politics. The question had asked about elections conduct and the importance of having ethical and honorable elected officials representing the community and asked candidates if the campaign process would reveal issues that would be embarrassing to the Flagler County community. McLaughlin said that, “unfortunately, politicking is a blood sport,” but that he’d “done a few campaigns, and we stay the high road. I mean we just — we don’t do negative, I don’t believe in negative. I think you run for something, you tell people what you’re about, who you are, and be honorable. And I think that brings a certain dignity to the process.” As to whether the campaign would reveal “embarrassing” issues, he said, “No, absolutely not.” Hansen said he “came from a community of honor, and that’s the United States Navy. That was kind of a way of life for us, integrity and honor. I agree with Nate that it’s a blood sport, elections are a blood sport, but not for me. There’s nothing in my background that I’m embarrassed

about. As a matter of fact I can list lots of thing I’m proud of.” Mullins, speaking after the other two, said that the community, in 2016, had seen a “crazy election and a lot of mud-slinging.” “We’ve seen a man that was attacked very aggressively stand above and lead the country, and go in a direction that businesses are starting to benefit from,” Mullins said. “I think it’s important to focus on the issues. I think when he was attacked, he stayed on course, certainly probably a little stronger than what the average person could endure. But I’m proud of what our country’s doing.” Then, again in a departure from the other two candidates, Mullins gave a lengthier answer to the portion of the question that asked candidates about embarrassing issues in their background. “How important is it to have ethical, honorable elected officials representing the people of Flagler County? I think that’s very important, but I’m not going to sit up here and say that I’m a perfect person,” he said. “I’ve gone through a lot of challenges in my life. I’ve gone through losing a father at an early age, I grew up searching for a role model, I went through a divorce which was not very fun, but we have actually learned to work together and become great at coparenting together. ... That took experience to go through it and become that

person and evolve. I didn’t have the role model at a young age.” He’d also had some “tough times” with his business and had considered bankruptcy but had recovered, he said. “It’s going to reveal I’m a human being. It’s going to reveal I’m a real person. It’s going to reveal that — why I have God in my life. It’s also going to reveal —” And with that, the timer cut him off. Mullins had said in a March 6 interview with the Palm Coast Observer for a story about opioids that he’d turned to God during his own recovery process from addiction to pain medication. He said he was eight years into recovery and that he still serves on Georgia’s Statewide Opioid Task Force. On a question about traffic roundabouts — the Florida Department of Transportation

is considering adding three, at Cody’s Corner, U.S. 1 and Old Dixie Highway, and U.S. 1 and Matanzas Woods Parkway — McLaughlin was critical of a proposal to add the roundabouts, especially for Cody’s Corner, saying Florida Sen. Travis Hutson has been in touch with FDOT “to figure how we can not do this one and come up with a better engineering plan that’s going to be more usable for our west side.” Hansen said, “We, the people of Flagler County, have no say, and that doesn’t seem right to me.” He said he could see the advantage of roundabouts in some places but that a roundabout “seemed like the wrong answer” for Cody’s Corner. A traffic light would be less costly than a roundabout, he said, but, “As long as it’s safe, whatever solution FDOT comes up with and we prevent loss of

life, that’s the right answer.” Mullins wasn’t ready to dismiss roundabouts. “Roundabouts in developments have proven to be good and bad,” he said. “It just depends on the development and the plan you have and ... the way you want to get traffic —there’s definitely an argument that the roundabouts are moving traffic quicker.” He said that when he travels S.R. 100, it seems like he’s stopped at every light. Other communities have synchronization, he said. “That’s part of these roundabouts, too; I think if you’re going to address one issue, you address all the issues.” One question asked candidates if they saw any wasteful spending in the county’s budget. Both incumbents said no. “This is one of the most efficiently run operations you can ever imagine,” said McLaughlin, who said he’s handled seven budgets in office. He pointed out that the county came up with a strategic plan in 2011 and is again growing quickly. Mullins said, “One of the, probably the biggest areas that I see in spending that needs to be looked at and evolved: We don’t need to be temporarily fixing things or patching things, we need to be permanently fixing things. ... When we grow something, when we expand something, we need to have a vision and a plan for what we’re expanding that for.” Responding to a question about

the need for affordable housing, Hansen and McLaughlin spoke about the challenges of keeping up with market changes and dealing with people who don’t want affordable communities nearby, while Mullins said, “You just have to sit down and do it. ... You turn around and plan it out and make sure you’re not putting it on top of a vacation home or somebody’s retirement home that they spent several million dollars on.” Hansen acknowledged that affordable housing in Flagler is a problem and noted that an apartment complex has been approved and that there are plans for a large mobile home park in the works. “We don’t have affordable housing in Flagler County. We just don’t,” he said. “The not-inmy-backyard business is serious. .. (every time someone wants to build an apartment building, there’s — a hue and cry goes up, that ‘Oh, my God, not there, don’t do it there, build it over there.’ ... But we’re going to have to answer that question, and we’re going to have to build some housing here, so that the people that work here can live here. ... I think we’ll get it done, but it’s going to be painful.” McLaughlin said that part of the issue is keeping up with changes in the market. “A builder comes in, he builds what we would consider to be an affordable house, the housing market goes up, these folks say, ‘Wow, I paid $80,000, I can

sell it for $150,000,’ it becomes unaffordable real quick,” he said. “It’s a dilemma that you think you fix it, and you don’t, because the market changes.” The county needs to make things affordable but also attract high paying jobs, he said, “so that if you work here, you can make a living wage.” Several times, candidates got laughs from the crowd, as McLaughlin did when he answered a question about what his three favorite places in the county were. “You know, that’s not a fair question,” he said. “Because my happiest place is at home with Kelly,” he added, referring to his wife. “Awww,” several members of the audience cooed as others clapped and chuckled. “Kelly — you know, she’s been my girl since she was 14 and I was 15 years old. This June we’ll be married 39 years,” McLaughlin added, saying that he doesn’t get to be home with his family as much as he’d like. He then listed Haw Creek Ranch and Bull Creek Fish Camp as his other favorite places. Hansen listed Princess Place, the Ag Museum, and the beach, while Mullins listed Flagler Beach, the rural west side, and downtown Bunnell — which he suggested could be revitalized if the county could get a train depot added there.

Take away guns? Protect Second Amendment? Readers weigh in Dear Editor: I applaud the recent letter to the editor calling for steps to enhance school safety, including TSA-like security measures for every school and a national database to track anyone with a history of violent behavior. In addition to better school security, tougher background checks, a ban on assault rifles, and more support for mental health services, we should increase the age to purchase any type of firearm. The fact that a deeply disturbed teenager can walk into a local sporting goods store and buy an assault rifle and enough ammunition to kill hundreds of students is not something that I believe is (or should be) protected under our Constitution. The right to life transcends any person’s right to own deadly firearms, especially weapons capable of killing hundreds of people within minutes. I love this country and share concerns about our American

culture. I would agree with those who say that bad parenting is part of the problem. I personally detest video games, especially those that glorify war and violence. But making deadly firearms so readily accessible to anyone with a mission to kill is undeniably one of the reasons we have so many mass shootings. We as a country need to come together, rise above partisanship and find ways to protect our children. My heart goes out to the families of the victims in Parkland, Sandy Hook, Las Vegas, Columbine ... The list will go on and on and on unless we act now. PATTY SCOTT Palm Coast

illegal guns that the criminals and mentally deranged people in the U.S. have! Leave alone the real gun people, who believe in the Second Amendment of taking the responsibility of defending themselves, their families, and their country seriously. What is a family supposed to do when criminals and nuts break into their houses (or schools) and they have only kitchen knives (and erasers) against the gangsters’ guns? Duck and hide? No teacher would be allowed to have a gun in school unless they were properly trained and had had an extensive background check! Go ahead, liberals, march to Washington and try to take the guns that are causing all the problems along the way.

PATIENTS WHO ABUSE OPIOIDS ARE ALREADY ADDICTED Dear Editor: The story under the headline “How patients become addicts,” published March 8, missed the point. The patient who came up short a pill or two at the end of the month is already addicted, probably because some physician gave him/her a month’s supply of a highly addictive drug Hydrocodone. This epidemic of ppioid addiction was started by the medical/pharmaceutical industry practice of over-prescribing painkillers, and your piece should have been titled “How Addicts Satisfy Their Addiction.”

Man allegedly beat his roommate’s dog unconscious

Woman threatens to shoot up pet hospital at PetSmart

Brenden Geary said he was ‘frustrated’ with the dog.

Deidre Keech has been charged with making a false threat of a bomb or explosion.

JONATHAN SIMMONS NEWS EDITOR

A 21-year-old Palm Coast man beat and choked his roommate’s 11-pound Yorkshire terrier, named Dixie, unconscious because he was frustrated that the dog had urinated and defecated on a rug, according to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office. The dog’s owner came home the evening of March 5 to find Dixie unresponsive and with severe injuries. He rushed her to Flagler Animal Hospital, where a veterinarian reported that the dog was in shock and had injuries consistent with asphyxiation. The animal hospital contacted the Sheriff’s Office. Dixie’s owner told a deputy that he’d left the dog alone with his roommate, 21-year-old Brenden Geary. Geary also came to the animal hospital. Neither man could explain the dog’s injuries, which included “moderate to severe bruising on her ears, face, neck, throat area and on the inside of her legs,” according to the report. The next day, a Sheriff’s Office detective, Elizabeth Conrad, visited the home on Winchester Place to see where Dixie had been found. The owner told Conrad he’d left Dixie on the house’s rear porch and that Geary was the only one there. “Substances were observed on the wall consistent with what

Brenden James Geary

appears to be blood spatter and smeared feces,” Conrad wrote in the report. There was more on the dog’s food bag and the carpet. “The scene depicted a violent encounter, with the smudge of possible feces being located approximately five feet up onto the wall,” Conrad wrote. The detective confronted Geary with photos of Dixie’s injuries and the bloodstained porch. Geary said, “She s--- and pissed all over that rug,” and that he’d “walked in and really frustrated, picked her up by her ears, and I choked her,” then “tossed her against the wall.” He said that he’d thrown her against the wall when she tried to run away from him. Then he grabbed her by the thighs and sat her on the spot on the carpet where she was later found, he said. Geary “stated he doesn’t know what is wrong with him but has no resources to find out at this moment,” Conrad wrote in the report. Geary is charged with aggravated animal cruelty.

A Palm Coast woman threatened to shoot up Banfield Pet Hospital at PetSmart after a phone dispute with Pet Smart’s corporate office about making remaining payments on a medical plan for her cats. Her phone calls included an anti-Semitic comment. The phone call, made by 53-year-old Deidre Keech, took place on March 7. Keech had called to cancel her cats’ medical plans without making the remaining payments on the contract. She at first told a phone operator that she couldn’t afford the plan anymore. The plan for Lexie, the operator said in the recorded call, still had four payments on its yearlong plan. Keech “becomes very hostile,” according to a deputy’s summary of the audio recording of the phone call. “I’m not paying for another four months. ... Don’t try to Jew me, any money out of me,” she said. “And if you’re a Jew I apologize, but I can’t — I’m not dealing with it.” She yelled the word “cancel” repeatedly, then said, “Bull s--you will not Jew me out of this. What if I told you they were dead?

Deidre Keech

They’re dead, OK. That’s why I’m not paying.” Then, she said, “Call the cops because I’m about to shoot the s--- out of Banfield. I have a f--ing gun and I will shoot the s--out of you.” By the time a deputy was dispatched to the PetSmart on State Road 100, Keech was had already come there, and left — and, in person, wasn’t confrontational with employees at the store, according the deputy’s report. A Banfield corporate employee tipped off the Palm Coast store about the call, and a store employee confronted Keech when she arrived. Keech told the employee that she didn’t have a gun and had just been upset. Keech got some information, then left. A deputy confronted her at her house, where she admitted to threatening to shoot up the store, telling the deputy she’d been upset. Keech has been charged with making a false threat of a bomb or explosion.

BRIEFS Woman arrested for child neglect in boiling water case Deputies have made a second arrest in the case of a Palm Coast toddler whose father allegedly bathed him in boiling water and beat him with a switch. On March 9, deputies arrested Luciana Celestin, 24, who had responsibility for the child’s welfare, according to her arrest warrant. Documents from the Sheriff’s Office do not say whether she is the boy’s mother or another adult household member. She is charged with neglect of a child causing great bodily harm, a felony. “This person knew that something was going on with regards to this child and did nothing to stop it or render aid,” Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly said in a Sheriff’s Office news release. “A helpless child will spend the rest of his life with the scars from this abuse.” The boy’s father, 26-year-old Deviaun Toler, had been arrested Feb. 15. He’d brought the boy to Florida Hospital Flagler Feb. 14 with burns, bruising and a fractured skull and brain swelling.” Toler, who lives on Westfield Lane, is charged with two counts of aggravated child abuse.

Councilwoman expresses concern about city manager’s decision to grant a $15,000 raise to a staff member without the council’s input Heidi Shipley wants any major salary decisions in the future to come to the council for review. JONATHAN SIMMONS NEWS EDITOR

City Council member Heidi Shipley expressed her concern March 13 during a City Council workshop with City Manager Jim Landon’s decision to give city staff member Beau Falgout a $15,216 raise and promotion to the position of assistant city manager without first informing the council. Landon announced the title change — but didn’t mention the accompanying raise — at a City Council meeting March 6. Mayor Milissa Holland and council members found out about the raise after FlaglerLive discovered the raise and began reporting on it. “I would like to make some kind of motion that nobody gets a raise without it coming through us, other than their 3%, their usual raises,” Shipley said toward the end of the March 13 workshop. “Only because at a time where Mr. Landon is on his way out, making a raise for somebody — not that he would, but he could give everybody a raise. So, just so that we don’t seem like we’re taking taxpayer dollars for granted, just to put some kind of hold on that so that we know we’re aware of it and that we’re handling it. “Well, this is a workshop, so it’s

good discussion,” Holland said. “I think at our City Council meeting you can certainly put that on the agenda.” “Should we discuss it now?” Shipley said. Landon jumped in. “I would love to discuss it now, because that’s extremely offensive,” he said. “To suggest that I would, on my way out, give everybody a huge raise — “It’s still something that has to be addressed,” Shipley said. “I mean, I can’t worry about offending people when it comes to what I’m supposed to do for the residents of Palm Coast.” Landon turned to the mayor. “Chairman, may I continue to speak? We look at salaries all the time to make sure that we are competitive.” He said the city’s pay plan has standard annual adjustments, plus a merit system, and that the city also looks at pay for positions that regularly have people leaving for higher pay elsewhere. The city, he said, does “make adjustments based on salary surveys, and based on our pay plan. That’s my job.” “This is mine,” Shipley interjected. “We take it very serious,” Land-

on continued. “So for you all to then say that you want to just put a hold on all wages, evaluations, to stop pay raises, period —” “No I’m not saying for us to stop pay raises, just for it to come through us, too,” Shipley said. “Mayor, may I speak without being interrupted?” Landon said. “You’ve interrupted me plenty of time in the last three years,” Shipley said. “I’m just saying that what I’m looking for isn’t for all raises to be stopped. Obviously I wouldn’t say that. But, it should be coming through us if it’s something like $1,000 a month.” Councilman Steve Nobile suggested a compromise, and said he could see Shipley’s point. He suggested the council be given a brief

report on raises, with no names, every week, “so that if something flagrant pops up,” the council is made aware of it. Landon said he would be “happy to provide” the council with such a report. Shipley also liked the idea. “Just something, so that we know what’s going on, so that when something like that happens, we’re not caught by surprise,” she said. Councilman Nick Klufas said he’d been caught by surprise by news of the raise, too. “It just felt misrepresented in the way that it came across at the (March 6) council meeting,” he said. “Absolutely,” Shipley said.

Birding couple spreads passion and knowledge of bald eagles at Princess Place Preserve The Flagler Beach pair have been serious birders for over 30 years. PAIGE WILSON COMMUNITY EDITOR

Judie and Joe Dziak are a birding couple like none other. Judie said she’s the spotter — often able to catch quick movements at the blink of an eye — and Joe is the identifier — knowing countless subtle distinctions that make each type of bird unique. Together, they’ve made the perfect pair for the last 51 years of marriage, over 30 of which have been filled with binoculars, telescopes and teaching others about the wonders of local bird species. They’ve been members of National Audubon for over 40 years.

Photos by Paige Wilson

Judie Dziak looks through her Pentax 12x50 binoculars to get a better view of the eagle nest.

“It keeps us young — being out here chasing eagles,” Judie said. As members of the Center for Birds of Prey’s EagleWatch, the 72-year-old Flagler Beach residents have ventured to Princess Place Preserve two or three times a week for the last 21 nesting sea-

sons to study and appreciate the bald eagle pairs and eaglets that they’ve come to know. After the male eagle, which has been here for about eight years, found a new female mate last year, Judie said they finally named the couple Prince and Princess. “The high school kids wanted them to call them Joe and Judie, but we said, ‘No, no, no, they’re too regal for Judie and Joe,’” she added. The current eagle couple had two eaglets this season, but one recently died due to sibling rivalry. “Like natural selection, only the strongest survives,” Joe said. “The good news is that the remaining chick is strong and looks quite

healthy.” As Joe set up the scope next to the PVC pipe that marks a straight view to the nest about a quarter mile away, Judie lifted her Pentax 12x50 binoculars to her face while sitting in a green folding chair. Every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. became a regular viewing time for the couple. “When we started to come watch for ourselves, people started stopping by and would say, ‘What are you doing?’” Joe said. “So, one thing kind of led to another.” Judie said over the 21 years of Sunday eagle viewings, about 23,000 people have joined them. “We’re always amazed at the really good questions some peo-

ple ask,” Judie said. Joe said many visitors have asked if bald eagle populations are still in trouble since they’ve been taken off the endangered species list. The answer is a positive one, said Joe, as eagle populations are growing, even after being taken off the list in 2007. “Although I love my eagles dearly and treasure them, my favorite part is being able to impart some of this information about the history of this preserve, the sanctity of it (and) our stewardship responsibility to the general public,” Joe said. “We’re a good teaching school.” Judie added that watching visitors’ reactions when they see a bald eagle for the first time in the wild keeps their passion thriving. “They always tell us that our enthusiasm encourages them,” she said. “People say, ‘I can’t imagine doing this for this long and still get excited,’ and I say, ‘It’s exciting. Every week somebody comes in who’s never seen a bald eagle nest in the wild. And the first time people look in the scope, if I don’t hear ‘gasp,’ I know they’re not seeing it.’” Joe said his first time seeing a bald eagle in the wild was “BJ”: “Before Judie.” “I used to hunt and fish. I used to be an outdoors person all the time,” Joe said. “But I never got quite into the birding part of it until after I met Judie. Then, we became quite in tune to it.”

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

RAY BOONE STAFF WRITER

Maitland was a star at Father Lopez before he graduated in 2013. FPC’s Myles Henderson-Baker does the clean-and-jerk in the district meet.

Bulldogs place fourth in district meet FPC’s Myles Henderson-Baker and Richard Pham won the individual title in the 119- and 129-pound weight classes, and Matanzas’ Seaton Waldhauer won the title in unlimited. RAY BOONE STAFF WRITER

Flagler Palm Coast boys weightlifting coach Duane Hagstrom didn’t think his team had a chance entering the district meet, not with the likes of programs like New Smyrna Beach and Spruce Creek, which have deep rosters filled with upperclassmen. By meet’s end, however, Hagstrom was pleasantly shocked. The Bulldogs, a team that features two seniors and 16 sophomores, finished fourth with a total score of 33 at the district meet on the afternoon of Friday, March 9, at FPC High School. Spruce Creek took home the title with an overall score of 59.

“Placing high has never really been even a thought for us because we’re so young,” Hagstrom said. “We’re improving every week. We’re right where we want to be going into regionals, so I’m satisfied with how we did.” The Bulldogs had two firstplace finishers: Myles Henderson-Baker won the title for the 119-pound weight class with a 250-pound bench press and a 195-pound clean-and-jerk, and Richard Pham claimed the title for the 129-pound weight class with a 270-pound bench press and a 195-pound clean-and-jerk. Henderson-Baker, one of the team’s two seniors, almost didn’t make weight, initially weighing in at 119.6 pounds.

FPC’s Miguel Correia prepares for the bench press.

What did he do to drop the extra .6 pounds? “Spit,” he said. Henderson-Baker, who Hagstrom believes is the top lifter for the 119-pound class in the state, sucked on Jolly Ranchers and spit in a cup for an hour. And despite an overwhelmingly young team, Hagstrom said he thinks the Bulldogs have the potential to finish in the top five in the state tournament. “The kids are getting stronger every week,” he said. “That’s all we can ask for.” PIRATES’ WALDHAUER WINS TITLE FOR UNLIMITED

The Pirates finished in fifth place in the district but were able to have one lifter reach the top of the podium. Matanzas’ Seaton Waldhauer won the individual district title for the unlimited weight class. Waldhauer bench pressed 325 pounds and clean-and-jerked 300.

M

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.

Pirates fall short against rival St. Augustine “I think it’s safe to say that we hate those guys a little bit more than we hate Flagler Palm Coast. There’s a lot of bad blood there. This was a fun one to get out, but the real game is going to be in the playoffs in April.”

Matanzas lost to district rival St. Augustine 7-6 on March 7, at home. RAY BOONE STAFF WRITER

The Matanzas boys lacrosse team lost to its district rival, St. Augustine, on the night of Wednesday, March 7, at Matanzas High School. After playing a physical, backand-fourth contest for four quarters, the two teams battled it out in a sudden-death overtime period. The Yellow Jackets got the first — and last — punch, scoring nearly two minutes into the period to defeat the Pirates 7-6. Matanzas coach Efrain Gutierrez paused for a brief moment to collect his thoughts before he spoke. “You know what? This is good,” Gutierrez said of the loss. “I think this is a blessing in disguise.” The Pirates and the Yellow Jackets have fought for control of the district for the last four years. Matanzas last won the district title with a dominating 23-7 victory over the Yellow Jackets in 2016. But, the Yellow Jackets ended the Pirates’ season last year in the district championship game, which St. Augustine won 12-9. The 2018 season is about getting revenge for the Pirates. “I’m a firm believer that it’s hard to beat a good team twice,” Gutierrez said. “We witnessed that last year with these guys when we beat them in the regular

season and then lost in the playoffs. It’s a tough pill to swallow, but it’s back to the drawing board for us.” The Pirates struggled to put the ball in the back of the net on Wednesday night against the Yellow Jackets. What stood out, however, was the Pirates’ defense. “Six goals? That’s like a field goal in football,” Gutierrez said. “I’m impressed with this team because they’re really buying into the systems we’re drawing up.” Defender Ryan O’Conner said he wanted one thing for the rest of the season: “We want to get our district championship back.”

The pick-off attempts, they can put us in a bad situation.” The Pirates also struggled with keeping double plays and forceouts in order. “It just makes it more difficult to get outs,” Perry said. “If you can keep those things in order, it’s a whole lot easier to pitch because you don’t have to work as hard to get hitters out. “Thankfully, we ended up on the right side of the scoreboard tonight.”

Despite a victory that saw the Pirates climb back from a 5-2 deficit, Matanzas baseball coach Jim Perry was unhappy after his team’s 8-7 win over Mainland, a team the Pirates lost to only two nights before. Well after the game had concluded, Perry gathered with his players and voiced his frustrations: the mental errors, the poor fielding, the overthrows. The mistakes the Pirates made for much of their contest against Mainland on the night of Thursday, March 8, could have eliminated any chance of a comeback. But they fought through it. “We struggled early,” Perry said. “We fell in love with some things and relaxed mentally. We were very fortunate to make some adjustments as the game went on.” Among the things the Pirates “fell in love with” was trying to pick the runner off at first base. Matanzas accomplished the feat once early in the game, picking off a runner on first to record the second out of the inning. However, the Buccaneers also

YOUR NEIGHBORS THERE’S SNOWPLACE

LIKE PALM COAST

The Mullins Companies brought the Georgia tradition to Flagler Palm Coast High School on March 10. PAIGE WILSON COMMUNITY EDITOR

Snow fell in Palm Coast on Saturday, March 10. Well, man-made snow that is. Even though the temperature hung in the low 70s, thousands of kids jumped around in two snowfields outside Flagler Palm Coast High School from 11 a.m. through the afternoon for the first Snowfest in Flagler County. The Mullins Companies President and CEO Joe Mullins, who has been organizing the Columbia County (Georgia) Snowfest for the last six years, decided to start the event in his new hometown of Flagler County after permanently moving to Flagler Beach in 2016. Mullins said he had FPC students run the event, which is a big part of the reason he holds it. “It’s a way that my company can teach them how to do events as they get older and give back to the community because this is a total charity event,” he said. The $4,000 raised at the event

will go toward the Flagler County Education Foundation, which is a nonprofit that works to benefit students and teachers. “It was priceless,” Education Foundation Executive Director Joe Rizzo said. “There were a lot of people there. To watch the faces and reactions of the kids there was just priceless.” The festivities included two snowfields, two snow slides, arts and crafts vendors and stage performances. While the man-made snow was brought from Georgia, Mullins said he made sure to use local vendors for the entertainment. “It’s my community, so I want to make sure we’re giving back and there’s events we can do with the kids,” Mullins said. Mullins said he plans to hold another Snowfest on Dec. 15 at Palm Coast City Hall, which he anticipates will have an even bigger turnout. “We’ll still work with the schools,” Mullins said about the future Snowfest.

Palm Coast resident Adriana Bass winds up to throw a snowball.

because her counts have dropped down to zero, so for the last seven days she’s been running high fevers and no immune system,” John Koller said. He said that Toni has been through about 10 surgeries so far. “She’s been through a lot,” he said. “Last week when she had the high fevers, I had to lay in bed and hold her until she stops shaking because she’ll shake for an hour at a time.” John Koller said on that Monday, March 12, they finally got good news. Toni was able to come home for a few days before

returning for more treatment. “It’s one day at a time,” he said. “And we have our good days like today when we get to go home.” Before the diagnosis, Toni was active in the FPC Marching Band. She loves playing the trumpet, John Koller said. “It’s a giant thing for her,” he said about her involvement in band. “That’s all she lives for.” Toni’s initial treatment is expected to take about six months.

Then, she will continue treatment and follow-ups over the next two years. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help relieve some of the financial stress for the family at gofundme.com/team-tonitough. “The supports been great. It really has been,” John Koller said. “We really haven’t had a whole lot to worry about other than taking care of Toni right now, but it’s the gas, the food, everything — it’s

When John Koller cut strands of hair off his daughter Toniann Musselman before shaving it off completely, he felt overwhelming grief. “The hard things that you would think would be hard aren’t as hard as you would think they would be,” he said. “But cutting her hair, which doesn’t seem to be any big deal, was devastating.” Best known as Toni, the 15-year-old sophomore at Flagler Palm Coast High School was diagnosed almost two months ago with multi-cell leukemia — both T-cell and acute myeloid leukemia. She is currently being treated at Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville. Nicole Koller, Toni’s mother, has been at the hospital with Toni through the whole process, and John Koller has had to make trips back and forth from Palm Coast to Jacksonville to take care of his other two children and their dog. John Koller said Toni’s hair started falling out a few weeks ago, and they finally made the painful decision to shave it off. “The last week has been so hard

HEALTH OBSERVED

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

MOTHER-DAUGHTER CO-AUTHORS RELEASE BOOK, ANNOUNCE BOOKSIGNING PARTY IN PALM COAST With the goal of spreading love and encouragement, Pamela Krikke and her daughter Kate Eldean co-authored “Gracie Brave,” which came out Dec. 17, 2017. Eldean was diagnosed with childhood depression at age 5. She is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in South Carolina. “She’s always had a heart for people, as I’ve had,” Krikke said. “We always wanted to write a book together for a long time.” For about half the year, Krikke lives in Palm Coast. A book-signing party will be held at 2-5 p.m. on April 15 at Gingham Buttons craft and gift shop, located at 5 Utility Drive. In the meantime, Krikke is working to reach out to Flagler County schools for future reading days. “What we’re trying to address here is not depression or anxiety,” Krikke said. “We just want to share that to give love and encouragement, that we may have difference, but with hope and love we really aren’t that different at all.” Visit graciebrave.org.

ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL PUBLISHED IN NATIONAL PUBLICATION Buddy Taylor Middle School Assistant Principal Denise Harshbarger has been published on Edutopia. com in association with the George Lucas Educational Foundation, which is dedicated to transforming kindergarten through 12th grade education. Her article is titled “Building Students’ Noncognitive Skills.” It details “simple ways to encourage your students to develop academic mindset, metacognition, and social skills with your teaching.” The article, which was published on March 5, can be found here: edut.to/2HbUBzX.

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.

Beating the odds: Palm Coast woman creates wreaths to spread awareness for Multiple Myeloma GET CONNECTED

Jenny Hack is taking advantage of her prolonged life after being diagnosed with an incurable cancer in 2011.

March is Myeloma Action Month. Jenny Hack invites anyone who has Multiple Myeloma or knows someone living with it to contact her at 445-1599. She also sells her wreaths on Etsy at ArtsyWreathsAndMore, which can be found at etsy. me/2tG2QT6.

PAIGE WILSON COMMUNITY EDITOR

Jenny Hack started making wreaths in November 2017 to raise money and awareness for Multiple Myeloma, which she was diagnosed with in 2011.

tell you the truth, but it did.” At age 69, the Palm Coast resident is currently participating in her fourth clinical trial after relapsing about a month and a half ago. The trial lets her spend more time at home, which has given her more time with two of her seven grandchildren. In early November 2017, Hack started to use her free time to create colorful, seasonal wreaths with 15-year-old Avianna Rosamonda and 13-year-old Kairi Harris in the back room that her husband Bill Hack closed in for her

after she was diagnosed, to use for meditation, relaxation and, now, crafts. “I’m lucky to have two grandchildren who are creative,” she said. “They’re happy to help Grandma.” During her first two months of making wreaths over the holidays with her little elves, Hack was able to sell about 20 wreaths to make $1,000, all of which she donated to IMF. “It’s fun, and it makes her happy,” Rosamonda said about working with her grandma.

On Hack’s living room wall, a wreath with sunflowers hangs big and bright. In the wreaths’ center, the words “Today is a blessing” are displayed on an inspirational piece of artwork. It’s how she lives her life. “In my heart, the only thing I can leave my kids and my family is memories,” she said. Bill and Jenny Hack just celebrated their 49th anniversary on March 8. She said her goal is to make it to their 50th. While this trial has been harder on her than previous ones, Hack

said she’s pushing through. “I keep thinking, if we don’t do trials and we just do transplants, nothing is going to change,” she said. “And that’s why I really like to put some kind of emphasis on clinical trials because that’s the only way it’s going to be cured.” Hack said she’s been very lucky, as some people only last months while others can last years. “That’s why I figure God’s not done with me,” she said.

In 2011, Jenny Hack was told she had one year to live. “I said to the doctor, ‘Well, I believe in miracles,’” she said. At age 62, the doctor had told her that she had stage 3 Multiple Myeloma, which is an incurable cancer of the plasma in bone marrow. Hack said that most patients get bone marrow transplants that can stop the progression, but there’s no guarantee. She decided that she wanted to enjoy her last year of life instead of spending time getting transplants. She joined the International Myeloma Foundation and found local support groups in Palm Coast and Jacksonville. Over the last seven years, Hack has taken part in four clinical trials for patients with MM. She said the trials have helped her fight through her relapses. Two of the clinical trials have been approved by the Federal Drug Administration as well. “It did help other people. It is standard protocol now,” Hack said about the FDA-approved trials. “That made me feel good because I figured that’s what I’m thinking of, I could help others. I didn’t think I could help myself to

PONCHO HAS BEEN FOUND!!! Poncho had been missing since 11/23. He traveled from Palm Coast, Bunnell, Ormond Beach and Port Orange. He is now a resident of Ormond Beach!! A BIG thank you to everyone in our communities for all of your help in trying to bring him home. Poncho has spent the past month on a farm where he befriended a dog of the homeowner. In a great turn of events and the BIG heart of both families, Poncho will be adopted by his new friends in Ormond Beach. Thank you once again for all of your help and support! We truly are a great community!!
