911 CALLS “My friend just got shot,” a caller tells a dispatcher in a 911 call shortly after midnight on April 13. The call was released April 16 from the Sheriff’s Office. “What is your friend’s name?” the dispatcher asks. “Curtis Gray. His name is Curtis Gray.” A second call to 911 was from someone involved in a shop near the shooting. The caller said he didn’t know Gray, but he can be heard encouraging Gray before he died. “Stay with me, stay with me,” the caller says.

fter a 36-hour investigation, the suspect in the murder of 18-year-old Flagler Palm Coast High School student Curtis Gray has been arrested, Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly said at a press conference on the afternoon of Sunday, April 14. Marion Lee Gavins Jr., 17, of Palm Coast, got into an altercation with Gray outside Coin Laundry at 4845 Belle Terre Parkway in Palm Coast at around 12:30 a.m. Saturday, April 13. Deputies found Gray bleeding from a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He was rushed to Halifax Health, where he died. Deputies were able to identify Gavins, a previous offender, as a suspect nearly 12 hours after the shooting. Deputies conducted a felony traffic stop on a car leaving the suspect’s house on Saturday afternoon and, along with a SWAT team, served a search warrant at the residence on Woodfaire Lane in Palm Coast. The vehicle the suspect was in during the shooting was found in the garage, but the suspect was not in the home, and he was not in the vehicle that was previously stopped. At 11 p.m. Saturday, a firstdegree murder warrant was issued for Gavins’ arrest. “Our team did not give up,” Staly said. “They put the pressure on.” At around 2 p.m. Sunday, deputies spoke with Gavins’ mom, who wished to turn him in. She agreed to meet at the Sheriff’s District 2 Office in Palm Coast. Gavins turned himself in at 3 p.m. “These things can end very poorly for the suspect,” Staly said. “I think the mom was trying to keep her son alive because he was obviously making bad decisions. So I’m glad that she did that.” Staly said he has already spoken with State Attorney R.J. Larizza and requested that Gavins be charged as an adult. There is no known motive “for this senseless killing,” he added. In addition, Gavins has a criminal history dating back to 2014. He was arrested in October 2014 for sale of marijuana within 1,000

Sheriff’s Office to build new district office The sheriff and his staff will not be returned to the evacuated, mold-affected Operations Center. JONATHAN SIMMONS NEWS EDITOR

Rather than sending Sheriff’s Office employees back into the evacuated, mold-affected Sheriff’s Operations Center on State Road 100, the county will build a new FCSO district office next to the Flagler County Public Library branch on Palm Coast Parkway, the County Commission decided April 15. The new building, to be placed on county-owned land, will be about 40,000 square feet — larger than the Operations Center, which is about 35,000 square feet — and is expected to cost $12 million to $15 million. Although it will house the bulk of the FCSO’s staff, the new building will not be called an “Operations Center.” According to Florida law, if a Sheriff’s Office has an operations center, it is supposed to be in the county seat — in Flagler’s case, Bunnell — unless the County Commission adopts a resolution deciding otherwise. Flagler County isn’t doing that. Instead, it’s shifting to a districtbased model in which there will be no sheriff’s operations center, per se, but a series of district offices for various parts of the county. The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office evacuated its Operations Center building on State Road 100 in June 2018 after more than 30 employees filed workers’ compensation claims reporting skin rashes and respiratory problems. FCSO staff have since been divided between the jail administrative building and the second floor of the county courthouse (both in Bunnell), while Sheriff Rick Staly has implored the County Commission to find a more livable solution for his staff. The proposal to build a new district office beside the library was one of four options county staff presented to the County Commission at its April 15 meeting. The others were: doing nothing until problems with the existing building are resolved; expanding the FCSO’s presence in the courthouse — an option County Clerk of Court Tom Bexley said was unworkable — or having FCSO employees use the former Sears building on Palm Coast Parkway in addition to space leased elsewhere. Staly, addressing the commission during the meeting, said he favored the option to build a new facility, referred to as “Option 4” in a county staff presentation. “I believe the county administrator has brought you a good plan, one that I believe can be done without a tax increase,” Staly said. Bexley said he would be willing to continue the situation as it is currently, with his employees and FCSO employees sharing courthouse space, while the county constructs the proposed Palm Coast district office building, which is expected to take up to two years. The proposed location — on county-owned land next to the library — makes sense, the sheriff said, because it will be in the center of the largest expected popu-

lation growth in the county. Another potential location, Staly said, would be on countyowned land near the current Emergency Operations Center, which is located behind the Government Services Building on State Road 100. That would have the benefit of placing FCSO employees near emergency services employees. But Staly believed that centering his staff in the area of largest population, and largest projected population growth — in Palm Coast — made more sense. Town Center was another possibility, he said. “I think all three locations are workable, and I will support whichever you choose,” he said. But he asked the commissioners to make a decision during the meeting, rather than delaying. County Administrator Jerry Cameron noted that, by building a new Sheriff’s Office district office in Palm Coast near the library, the country would cut other costs. It could add a proposed Tax Collector’s district office on the same land, he said, and having the Sheriff’s Office there would eliminate the need to hire separate security for the Tax Collector’s Office branch, as well as for the nearby library property. It would also mean that land that would otherwise have been used for the Tax Collector’s Office district building would instead remain on the county tax rolls as commercial land. “In facing really serious problems, which this certainly qualifies as, I don’t think I have ever seen a solution present itself that has more advantages than the Option 4,” Cameron said. The County Commission approved it unanimously. Email Jonathan Simmons at jonathan@palmcoastobserver. com.

HOMELESS CAMP CLEANUP REMOVES 211 CUBIC YARDS OF TRASH, 14 CUBIC YARDS OF HUMAN WASTE A cleanup effort at the homeless camp in the woods near the Flagler County library branch on Palm Coast Parkway removed 14 cubic yards of human waste, 211 cubic yards of trash and “countless” drug paraphernalia, according to a presentation at an April 15 County Commission meeting. It was a coordinated effort, county General Services Director Heidi Petito said, involving her staff, land management, social services and library staff, as well as inmate work crews and Sheriff’s Office deputies who provided security. The cleanup proceeded from March 11 to April 11 on eight acres of the 19-acre county-owned property, which is now slated to be the future home of a 40,000-square-foot Flagler County Sheriff’s Office branch location. The cleanup effort did not involve forcing out the homeless individuals themselves — instead, trash was removed, along with brush that created a fire hazard and shielded the camp from view from the library’s security cameras, Petito said. County Administrator Jerry Cameron said the cleanup is an improvement, not a solution. “We still have to address the situation, or we will end up right back in the same condition,” he said. “We’re working on that. It’s a tough situation nationwide. The courts have pretty tightly prescribed what you can and can’t do with regard to that, and there’s a compassion factor, too: You want to treat people as human beings.” County Commissioner Joe Mullins said he’d flown over the county and noted tents in other areas, including near Bunnell Elementary School, the First United Methodist Church in Bunnell and the Kohl’s in Palm Coast. “I agree with our county manager: We have to be humane,” Mullins said. “I don’t think it’s humane to leave anyone in that environment, and I’m not going to.” Other locations, he said, have had success implementing solutions that involve assessment and placement. “Not all of them want to go somewhere — they want — this is a lifestyle — but they’re not going to do it in Flagler County. Not throw trash and do stuff like that,” Mullins said. One resident, Michael Cocchiola, said that while the cleanup was a good thing, he believed Petito’s presentation “demonized the homeless.” “You would think, looking at that presentation, that they’re all dirty and they’re all dangerous and they’re all drug users.” Cocchiola said. “That is not the case. They have fallen on hard times for a lot of reasons. Yes, some are drug addicts. But some are homeless because they missed a paycheck or two or three, or their spouse died and they can’t afford their home, or they are sick or they are mentally ill. ... We have to deal with this. We cannot allow people to be living in the woods like that.”

Palm Coast and Flagler County residents have been emailing and calling elected officials, saying that Waste Pro, the trash hauler that serves the county and the city, has been missing pickups. County Commissioner Joe Mullins said during an April 15 commission meeting that he’d gotten hundreds of messages from residents about the issue. He’s been forwarding those to County Administrator Jerry Cameron. “Waste Pro needs to step it up, or they need to go,” Mullins said. “The company should be providing what they’re supposed to. It’s just too many people throughout the county that are saying the same thing.” He noted that Bunnell handles its own trash service, and suggested the county could consider contracting with Bunnell. Resident Carl Laundrie said recycling pickup has been inconsistent. He left his recycling out last week, he said, and it wasn’t picked up. It also wasn’t picked up on April 15 by the time he left the house at 4:30 p.m. “If it continues like this, people aren’t going to recycle,” Laundrie said. “When you separate garbage all week and then put it out there and it doesn’t get picked up, you’re stuck with a box full of stuff.” County Administrator Jerry Cameron said the county government would have to “have a real sit-down with that vendor,” and, if things can’t be resolved, seek a replacement. He has planned to address the issue with Palm Coast Mayor Milissa Holland during an upcoming meeting with her, he said. The county could also approach municipalities that handle their own pickup, like Flagler Beach, and see if they’d be interested in contracting to handle the county’s pickup, Cameron said. On April 16, the day after the County Commission meeting, Palm Coast City Councilman Jack Howell at a City Council meeting mentioned citizen complaints about Waste Pro, calling the matter a “major concern.” “If they can’t meet the obligation, then we need to start seriously looking at other options,” he said. Holland said the city has been fining Waste Pro for missed pickups, as per its contract. Waste Pro, she said, “has been a struggle for us for some time now,” and the city has met with Waste Pro multiple times. Howell said he understands that Waste Pro has been having issues with management and a lack of drivers, “but that’s not our citizens’ fault.” “We are paying for a service, and you better deliver. Period,” Howell said. “I don’t care if supervisors have to drive the trucks till the wee hours of the night; it’s got to be done, because it mounts up. ... I want to put them on note: If you can’t deliver, we’ll find somebody real quick, real soon to deliver the service.”

Palm Coast gets aggressive on tech, will add new director position With Nick Klufas’ persistence and Matt Morton’s approval, the city will hire a chief innovation officer. BRIAN MCMILLAN

SATURDAY, MAY 4

EXECUTIVE EDITOR

ARBOR DAY

With a little help from new City Manager Matt Morton, Nick Klufas was finally able to move beyond a consensus of “grunts” from his fellow City Council members and get a commitment for an aggressive strategy to move the city of Palm Coast into the next stage of becoming a “smart city.” That next stage will begin with the hiring of a chief innovation officer, and it should happen quickly — in 45 days, Morton said in a phone interview on April 11. From Washington state, Morton had been listening to Klufas’ comments during the last few City Council meetings in March. Off the agenda, Klufas had pressed for the hiring of one or two people to market to outside businesses the

city’s underused FiberNet capacity and also to implement smart city initiatives, but Klufas had been met with resistance from council members, particularly Bob Cuff. (Mayor Milissa Holland has been supportive of Klufas’ preference of a faster pace.) Cuff felt that Klufas’ enthusiasm had led him into gray areas with the city’s charter, which places the hiring and firing of staff in the purview not of the City Council but of the city manager. Cuff also noted that it was a particularly awkward time to be talking about staff changes because Morton had not even started work yet. In Morton’s first meeting, a workshop on April 9, Klufas again asked the council for a commitment to forge ahead on technology. “I know we had at least three out of five in consensus, but it was more along the lines of grunts and

groans,” Klufas said. He wanted a more firm commitment. Cuff agreed that he had only committed with “grunts” so far, because he was ignorant of the scope of Palm Coast’s opportunities and threats with regard to technology. Meanwhile, Klufas, a senior development engineer for a tech firm called ACI, in Town Center, is fluent in tech jargon and at times leaves Cuff and Councilmen Eddie Branquinho and Jack Howell in a state of bewilderment. (For a fair comparison, Klufas acknowledged to Cuff, who is a lawyer by trade, “My legal knowledge is zero.”) Cuff wanted Klufas to slow down and asked for a workshop to explore strategies. “More feasibility reports?” Klufas responded. In a past meeting, he refused to wait any longer and predicted that Palm Coast will be left behind if it doesn’t act quickly. As opposed to the previous meetings in March, this time Morton was in the room, so Cuff asked for Morton’s opinion. The city manager is the ultimate decision maker on hiring, with the objective to carry out the City Council’s priorities most effectively. Morton was prepared to commit immediately. Hiring someone in the role of chief innovation officer is “an excellent first step” and “absolutely critical for success,” he said. After hearing Morton’s comments, the four council members in attendance (Howell was absent) gave their verbal approval that they did want to move forward, and the decision was made. Hiring a CIO, which Morton envisions as a senior staff position with a salary of $92,000 to $142,000, requires no further City Council action or input. Morton posted a job  description on April 12, which reads, in part: “The CIO advises the City Manager on all Smart City IT and external IT-related programs and projects issues.” In an April 11 phone interview, Morton echoed Klufas’ concerns about being left behind. “I heard a quote a while back: ‘Cities that do not embrace ‘smart city’ will be the Rust Belt of today in 20 years,’” Morton said. “That’s where investment is going. I believe this is a great need and … a really exciting time.”

County halts search to replace interim administrator JONATHAN SIMMONS NEWS EDITOR

In the two months since county commissioners selected Jerry Cameron to be the county’s interim administrator, replacing the fired Craig Coffey, Cameron has impressed the commissioners enough that they’ve decided to stop searching for a permanent manager to replace him. County Commission Chairman Donald O’Brien proposed halting the search during the commission’s meeting April 15, suggesting that the commission “slow down the process, or discontinue it right now.” “I am extremely  pleased with Mr. Cameron’s performance at this point and his dedication and commitment to our county,” O’Brien said. “We know, longterm, we’re going to have to do that (search for a new administrator), but he’s also given indications to me, and I’m sure maybe some of you as well, that his time horizon is not necessarily what we thought it might have been originally of maybe six to nine months, but maybe two to three years.”  County Commissioner Joe Mullins said  he agreed with O’Brien, as did Commissioner Charlie Ericksen. O’Brien’s proposal came shortly after the commission came to a resolution on how to move forward on the problem of the Sher-

iff’s Operations Center building, which has been evacuated since June of last year because of mold issues and sick building concerns. The issue, which developed under the previous administration, had spurred calls to oust Coffey. Commissioners were pleased by the proposals Cameron presented. “Mr. Cameron’s demonstrated out of the box that he not only can do the job,” Commissioner Charlie Ericksen said, “but he can take us to new heights, and he’s got some vast knowledge.” PLANTATION BAY WATER SOLUTION PLANNED

The county will present a report to county commissioners regarding issues at the Plantation Bay utility plant, county administrator Jerry Cameron said. Cameron expects the report, which will address both water quality and wastewater issues, to be issued by the second County Commission meeting in May. “Preliminarily, it looks like we’re going to be able to resolve those issues out there without a rate increase,” Cameron said. Cameron also met with an engineer who’d been suggested by a Plantation  Bay citizens group. The engineer proposed an alternate, $1.8 million solution.  “We met with him, and his product looks really good,” Cameron said. “We had our engineering department there and could find no real fault to the product, but we do need to be clear: Although it’s a totally redundant system, that it is for machinery only — piping and blowers and

pumps, valves, those kinds of things,” he said. The county would still have to construct the tanks and buildings to house them, he added. “We are talking about a substantially higher figure than $1.8 million,” he said. “I don’t think it’s a bad solution, but they would have to competitively bid.” That will slow the process somewhat, he said. “I think we’re going to be able to bring you, I’ve got staff working on it, a report that will take care of the water quality and the wastewater issues and satisfy the consent order — and, as it appears now, that we would be able to do that without increasing rates,” Cameron said. “If that’s true, the Plantation Bay utility problem should be a thing of the past sometime in May.”

Beth grew up in Brooklyn and in Matawan, New Jersey, where she graduated from Matawan Regional High School. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1978 at Trenton State College (now the College of New Jersey). Beth moved to New York City to work as a Registered Nurse at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan, first as a Medical/Surgical Nurse, then later as a Psychiatric Nurse. In New York she met William C. Schatz through a mutual acquaintance, and they were married on April 17, 1983 in Hazlet, New Jersey. Beth and her husband moved around frequently, living in Georgia, South Carolina (where she both worked as a Psychiatric Nurse and studied for a Masters Degree in Nurse Psychiatry), New Jersey, Florida, California, and back to Florida. Beth also earned a Masters in Nutritional Biochemistry at the University of Florida in 1994. She worked for a time as a Nutritionist at Putnam Community Hospital in Palatka, Florida, before being forced to leave the workforce due to disability.

LET T ERS

Donation to Building Homes for Heroes Dear Editor: I am responding to the Palm Coast Observer article pertaining to the strict city code for house colors. The city’s regulations for exterior house colors is, in my view, one of the many great things about living in Palm Coast. Prior to my retirement, I lived in a city in Washington state which had no such requirements, and a close friend of ours, who happens to be a free-spirit type of person, had her home repainted a color that she absolutely loved — a garishly neon bright purple color. Needless to say, not one of her neighbors shared her joy, and we couldn’t dare spoil her love of the result when she asked us how we liked it. I do think it makes a lot of sense for a city to have some standards around the exterior appearance of homes, because a home is usually the singular most expensive asset a person or family will have. A home’s exterior appearance will have either a positive or negative financial impact on a neighborhood’s overall value and desirability factor. Having said that, I really do feel bad for deputy Bryan Denker and what he has gone through. The article said his home was built for him and his family by the Building Homes for Heroes organization, and it was purely accidental that the color he chose for exterior paint was slightly too dark and in violation of the city code. Despite his mistake, he is taking responsibility for his error and stated in the article that he declined the charitable organization’s offer to fix the problem at no cost to him. Deputy Denker also indicated the mayor offered to seek private donations try to help defray the cost of repainting his house, but he instead has asked for people to donate to Building Homes for Heroes. Per his request, I will be making a contribution to this worthwhile charitable organization so they can continue the great work that they do for our veterans and first responders. I would like to thank Deputy Denker for bringing the selfless work that this charitable organization provides to the attention of all of us here in Palm Coast. DAVID GRAY Palm Coast

Opposition to blue house is silly Dear Editor: When I chose to move here, it was not because of color restrictions on houses. Had I wanted to live in a place where everything looked the same, I would have moved to a gated community with homeowners association rules. Indeed, when I get bored with the architecture here, I drive to St. Augustine to get refreshed. Bryan Denker has given a lot

to our country. He continues to serve Flagler County as a deputy. He’s right. Why is there no such thing as a variance on house color? Why do neighbors get a vote on what colors are good or bad? Whose eyes are he offending with the blue color he likes? To me, this is silly and wrong — a complete waste of time, money, and energy. DEBORAH SINES Palm Coast

Let the deputy keep his individuality Dear Editor: Bryan Denker, thank you for your military and continued service to the community; we’re lucky to have you. In every neighborhood in every town, there lives a person or persons who appoint themselves the resident pains in the posterior. Like you noted, they’re usually too chicken to say anything directly to you; instead they cruise the neighborhood in their golf carts checking to see if your lawn meets their expectation, or that you lawn art doesn’t differ from theirs. They will post a comment to the HOA Facebook page hoping for validation of their latest observation. You should be allowed to keep your color and a tiny bit of individuality even in this cookie cutter world being forced upon you. You earned it. TOM TURECEK Flagler Beach

Enforce codes on the homeless camp Dear Editor: My wife and I moved to Palm Coast from South Florida going on four years ago now with the hopes of retiring in small town environment far removed from the antics of big city rhetoric. I haven’t involved myself in the everyday ongoings of this city, as that is really not who I am, but, after reading some of the stories that were posted in the recent Palm Coast Observer, I can no longer hold my tongue. It seems that our mayor, Milissa Holland, is not as connected as she would have us believe, while she boasted, in her State of the City address, of calming tree canopies and miles of pathways and trails, she neglected to even mention our new campground on the property adjacent to the public library on Palm Coast Parkway, or the crowds being drawn to stand on the street corners near Belle Terre and Palm Coast Parkway asking for money, blocking traffic and leaving litter thrown about. While I am certain life couldn’t be finer on the east side of I-95, there is a whole other world lurking on the

west side. One instance mentioned in the paper regarded codes, to which the mayor had another brilliant statement: “They like that you can drive around, and you get a sense of uniformity.” Really? Do the same codes apply to the tents, tarps and general conditions in the homeless camp? Taxpayers and registered voters on this side of the fence don’t feel that they do. Apparently the mayor does not drive much, at least on the west side of I-95. In one story I read about the homeless situation it actually stated that there was a founder of the homeless camp. Really? These people are trespassing on private property. If our mayor and City Council truly consider this as fact perhaps this guy should run for mayor; he certainly has what it takes to be a politician. I know this sounds harsh and my intention is certainly not to bash the mayor or anyone else, but if we’re going to enforce the codes and truly have uniformity, let’s do it across the board. In closing, I have one idea on the homeless camp: Move it to the east side of I-95. Rest assured, this issue would get resolved in the blink of an eye. JAMES GREENE Palm Coast

Editor’s Note: The library on Palm Coast Parkway is located not on private property but public property, owned by Flagler County. Also, the city did threaten to cite the county for litter on the library property.

Enforce some codes more strictly Dear Editor: We have lived in Palm Coast for 20 years. One of the reasons we moved here was because we found it to be pristine, low in crime, easy to get around and nontouristic. Unfortunately many of those qualities have disappeared. We love the fact that they restrict the color of houses. I would not want a purple or bright orange house next door to us. It is not an opinion, it is good taste. I wish they would also make it mandatory that dirty houses be cleaned up or painted as well as a certain amount of landscape in the front of the house. If people don’t like the rules, they should live elsewhere. It’s that simple. As far as the question of variance mentioned by Mr. Bryan Denker: Once you do a variance for one person you end up with a precedent, and eventually the rule is lost. Unlike his statement that the city is too strict, we feel it could be even more strict in many areas. We love our city but feel it has grown too fast and has lost the appeal which drew many of us here. We don’t feel out tax dollars are spent wisely when they are spending $2 million on splash pads which are extravagant frills when we need a decent place for our police officers to conduct their business. Too many parks to maintain and keep lights on for nothing. Mayor Holland has her priorities confused.

Welcome to Stepford, Deputy Denker Dear Editor: The city of Palm Coast assigns arbiters of taste, who create lists of approved colors that they find acceptable and fine anyone who they determine to be in violation. As in Orwell’s “1984,” your neighbors spy and turn you in to the “taste police” simply for choosing a color not to their liking. I thought the color you painted your house looked beautiful. As a five-year resident of Palm Coast, I must tell Mayor Holland that I did not move here because I liked the restrictions or because I liked the uniformity. I moved here because homes were less expensive and taxes were low. My first impression of Palm Coast was that the landscaping was lovely but it looked like Stepford: homogenized and boring. I seem to remember the city’s own survey last year showed that 70% of the respondents disliked the overly restrictive codes, rules and regulations. Perhaps Mayor Holland needs to read the city’s survey results and stop assuming what other people are thinking. Most of us moved here without knowing that living in Palm Coast was almost as restrictive as living in an HOA, but at least with an HOA they are up front about their rules and you actually get to read them before you move in. There is no room for self expression in Palm Coast, just boring uniformity. There is no shortage of “old biddies” who think they are the font of all knowledge when it comes to design and color and what everyone else should and should not do.  ALICE LOSASSO Palm Coast

Editor’s Note: According to the 2017 Citizen Survey, 44% of respondents rated code enforcement as “excellent” or “good,” which is similar to the national benchmark.

More compassion for Deputy Denker Dear Editor: After reading Mr. Denker’s paint color dilemma and Ms. Holland’s reply, I literally checked the Palm Coast Observer’s published date that it wasn’t the April Fool’s issue! After months of reading her personal divorce issues, one would think she would be compassionate to other folks’ issues, especially one who served our country. In a year with Florida sun, the color will be pale blue. I asked our neighbors, and all went into gales of laughter about the “sense of uniformity.” LIZ LEINMILLER Palm Coast

3 ways to fix code enforcement

BRIAN MCMILLAN EXECUTIVE EDITOR

When visitors drive around Palm Coast and think, “This is a beautiful city! I want to move here!”, they might not realize it, but they are admiring the city’s codes. Although it’s not fun when my own yard is criticized, I’m glad the city requires everyone to keep their yards tidy. The appearance of our city is a matter of pride for many of us. But could some of the codes be updated? And are some people frustrated by the complaintdriven enforcement? Yes. Here are two suggested changes, plus a new approach. First: Expand the house color palette. Many have read about Bryan Denker, who painted his house a color of blue that was not allowed; he will now have to repaint. More than 600 comments were posted on Facebook in response to our story about Denker, who is also a veteran and a sheriff’s deputy. Other than, apparently, the neighbor who anonymously complained about the house, I have not heard of one person who feels Denker’s color of blue is bad for the city. Neon green is too far, but surely we can be a bit more permissive on color than

we are and still maintain our Palm Coastness. Second: Allow small work vehicles in driveways. Sheriff’s Office art covers all doors of Denker’s patrol vehicle — clearly covering more than the three square feet allowed for a work vehicle if you want to keep it in your driveway. But do we really want to tell Denker he can’t park in his driveway, too? No. According to the code, an exception is given to “emergency and governmental service vehicles, while in active service.” Code Enforcement considers deputies to always be “in active service” because they are on call for emergencies. I’m not convinced that’s the intent of the wording in the code, and PUBLIC it should be changed. And if deputies’ OPINION heavily painted cars are fine, why not a The 2017 Citizen baker’s or a real estate Survey found agent’s? this: “More Palm A new approach: Coast residents Educate new resihad observed a dents more. The city code violation already sends new compared to resiresidents a welcome dents across the email, which includes nation and was info on the most higher than levels common code violareported in 2015.” tions; hosts Citizens Academy; posts all codes on its website; and Code Enforcement Manager Barb Grossman visits civic groups to educate them. But the somewhere, there is still a disconnect. Many residents are frustrated and surprised when they are “caught.” A social media campaign from the city could help.

Sheriff: Community has ‘turned the corner’ on domestic violence

BRIEFS FCSO’s technology helps catch 3-year New York fugitive

The Faith-Based Services subcommittee reported that they have conducted training for local clergy on domestic violence over the past year and have plans to conduct more training in 2019. Staly closed the summit by thanking all members of the subcommittees for their diligence and devotion to this cause. He also shared a personal story of conducting a traffic stop recently on a vehicle without a valid tag. It turned out that the driver, a woman, was a victim of domestic violence and had escaped the abuse and was staying at a local shelter. The FCSO was able to assist her back to the shelter, and the Family Life Center is aiding in getting her proper transportation. “Two years ago,” Staly said, “I don’t think we would have had the same success with being able to assist this woman. That is the

A 23-year-old Palm Coast resident led law enforcement on a chase through Flagler County on Sunday, April 14, according to a charging affidavit released by the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies responded to Seminole Woods in reference to a stolen vehicle, described as a red Honda CR-V. Deputies spotted it at the intersection of Seminole Woods and State Road 100. With deputies trailing him, the driver turned into a RaceTrac gas station, sped through the parking lot and turned back onto S.R. 100, going east as deputies tried to stop him. A small object was thrown from the vehicle at the intersection with Old Kings Road. The vehicle continued to drive recklessly onto Colbert Lane, and avoided deputies’ stop sticks at the intersection of Kingswood Drive and Old Kings by running over the median. It turned onto to I-95 and exited at the 279 mile marker. A deputy used stop sticks to stop it at the intersection of Old Dixie and U.S. 1. The driver was identified as John Germain. Germain yelled at the passenger of the vehicle, who was speaking with deputies, “Don’t tell them s--t.” Deputies also found a bag with a “white, powdery substance.” Germain was charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle, burglary of a conveyance, and fleeing and eluding, among other charges. He was arrested in 2017 for possession of a concealed firearm, but was not convicted.

Sheriff Rick Staly and Chief Steve Brandt of the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office hosted a followup Domestic Violence Summit on Wednesday, April 10, inside the Kim C. Hammond Justice Center to hear an update on domestic violence in Flagler County and the reports from the five subcommittees. “Domestic violence affects every county and city in our country,” Staly said. “The only way to tackle a problem this size is to work together as a community and attack it from every angle. I’m not ready to declare victory on this problem, but there has been a reduction in domestic violence in Flagler County so far in 2019. I think we may have turned the corner.” The Social Services committee reported that the batterers intervention program that started last year already has many success stories. Chairpersons Stephanie Morrow and Penny Niceley run the 29-week program that often begins while the inmate is still in jail. They work with the sheriff’s STRIDE program to help find ways to help prevent recidivism for offenders and start them on the track to success.

Acting on a tip from the St. John’s County Sheriff’s Office, Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies began searching for a 2018 gray Dodge Journey that was reported stolen in South Carolina from Avis Car Rental, according to a news release by the FCSO. The stolen vehicle hit an automatic license plate reader in Flagler County and was spotted by a deputy on patrol around 7 a.m. Friday, April 12. The deputy tracked the vehicle to a Sunoco station in Bunnell. A felony traffic stop was conducted, but the driver and sole occupant refused to identify himself or answer questions. He had multiple fraudulent driver’s licenses and credit cards. Deputies used Rapid ID, which scans a person’s fingerprint and transmits it directly to the State Automated Fingerprint Identification System, to learn the driver’s identity: Changa Bush, 40, who had an active fugitive warrant for parole violation from New York since 2016 that ordered him to be held without bond. Bush was arrested and charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle and driving without a license, along with the New York fugitive warrant. “This is exactly why we implemented Rapid ID and LPRs in Flagler County, so we can take criminals like this off the streets,” Sheriff Rick Staly said in the release. “He came to the wrong county.”

Run Flagler Series Director Bob Hamlin competed in the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15. It was his third time competing in the event in the last four years. Hamlin developed a condition known as “foot drop” last November which has slowed down his long  runs significantly. The condition was fully and correctly diagnosed a few months ago with spine surgery required to correct the compression of the nerves affecting muscles in one leg. He was determined to run what he said may be his last Boston Marathon before the surgery.

‘You’ve just got to believe’

“Will is the reason why coaches coach. He’s that good of a kid.” DON MATHEWS, Matanzas coach

Matanzas’ Will Lam wins gold at state lifting meet, benching 360. RAY BOONE SPORTS EDITOR

T

he 2018 boys weightlifting season still serves as a painful reminder to Matanzas’ Will Lam. It was a reminder that, contrary to popular belief, hard work doesn’t always pay off. Stuff happens. Failure happens. Lam, then a junior, entered that season as one of the area’s top lifters in the 154-pound weight class. But he never made it past the district meet, where he scratched out on all of his clean-and-jerk attempts. He’d worked too hard, overcome so much to get to this point. How could the season possibly end like this? Regardless, he used his early exit from the postseason as an opportunity.

TOP FINISHERS In addition to Lam’s gold medal, the Pirates’ other state qualifiers, Richard Knowles and Skylear Williams-Michaud, also performed well at the state meet. Knowles earned silver in the 183-pound

“Having to sit back just gave me more time to get stronger,” he said. 2019 was all about redemption. Lam breezed through districts and regionals, earning a spot in the Class 2A FHSAA boys weightlifting state championship in the 169-pound class on Friday, April 12, at Arnold High School in Panama City Beach. Lam was flawless on the bench press, easily hitting all of his lifts, including a max of 360 pounds, which was 25 pounds ahead of the next-best bench. With a relatively comfortable lead, Lam decided to “take it easy” on the clean-andjerk, which, he professes, is not his “strength.” He knew he was going to win gold when his closest competition went for his 285-pound max on his first attempt, which he failed to complete, in order to keep up.

weight class (330 bench, 300 clean-and-jerk), and WilliamsMichaud placed fourth in the 219-pound weight class (345 bench, 320 clean-and-jerk). The Pirates finished third as a team behind champion Navarre and Spruce Creek.

Even though victory was almost assured, Lam remained calm. He wasn’t worried about the competition. He was solely focused on executing each attempt as perfectly as he could. He finished with a max 295-pound clean-and-jerk, upping hit total to 655 pounds, which was 35 pounds clear of second place. Lam was a state champion — the fifth Matanzas athlete to earn that honor. “It’s very fulfilling,” he said. “Nothing beats it when you work so hard for something.” Lam has attended Matanzas for all four years of high school. Pirates head coach Don Mathews, had nothing but praise for Lam. “He’s Matanzas through-andthrough,” he said. “He started here, he stayed here, he persevered here. That’s what Will is all about — perseverance.” Now, with graduation just over a month away, Lam walks through the hallways at Matanzas with a glimmering gold medal around his neck — a testament to the hard work finally paying off. “It just proves that working hard — no matter who you are or where you came from — you can make it,” he said. “You’ve just got to believe.”

MHS: Doing work Pirates girls track takes second, boys third at district meet RAY BOONE SPORTS EDITOR

Photos by Ray Boone

Ja’dashia Catlin approaches the finish line in the 4x400-meter relay.

At the crack of the starter’s pistol, the Pirates’ Kelly Steffens began the first leg of a long, arduous run on the track at Matanzas High School. She was competing against 11 other distance runners in 3,200-meter run at the 3A District 6 on the afternoon of Tuesday, April 16. She paced herself appropriately. Not too fast, not too slow. When it was time to make her move, she did. As the race wore on, the sun beat down and the rest of the pack started to wilt until only Steffens remained. Steffens, who also won the 1,600-meter run, completed the race in 12:10.83, which was nearly 38 seconds faster than secondplace finisher, Edgewater’s Jennifer Salinas, and about 43 seconds faster than teammate Caitlyn Norfolk, who took third. Steffens’ performance at the district meet was just one portion of the Pirates’ success. Matanzas’ girls track team finished second behind only Mainland High School at the district meet. The boys team finished third. Pirates co-head coach Jeremy Schaefer said several athletes “overachieved” on Tuesday. For

example: Matanzas coaches predicted that Aubrey Kravantka would place fifth in the discus. She threw a distance of 23.65 meters to earn a bronze medal. “I’m really proud of how we did,” Schaefer said. “It’s nice to see the hard work culminating at the end.” The regional meet is on April 27 at George Jenkins High School. The Pirates expect to compete as hard as they have the entire season. “They’ve worked hard and improved every meet,” Pirates sprinter/jumps coach Kingsley Maitland said. “It’s so gratifying to see the results we had. I’m grateful to them because they’ve been doing the work all season, and I expect them to do the same when we go to regionals.”

Matanzas' Allison Tuggle hands the baton off to a teammate.

he said. “We have people that are tennis players and have given up tennis to play strictly pickleball.” At the third-annual Hammock Cup pickleball tournament, about 240 players from across the state competed for medals. The tournament was held at James F. Holland Memorial Park, 18 Florida Park Drive N. on April 12-14. “We’re trying to convince the city and the county that pickleball is growing,” Hooker said. “I think they’re receiving the message; it’s just that there’s other priorities and money that they have to come up with in order to meet the demand.” Hooker said pickleball is unlike any sport. “It’s very social; you could be at a tournament and not know

The first day that Walt Hooker learned to play pickleball, he ruptured his Achilles tendon and had to follow doctor’s orders to not play again for 18 months.

Providence School rolls Pirates on senior night

M

atanzas’ boys lacrosse team concluded the 2019 regular season with one of the most disappointing losses of the year. The Pirates (9-6) were outscored 13-7 by Providence School on the night of Friday, April 12, at Matanzas High School — on the Pirates’ senior night. Pirates Junior Korvin Brey was the top goal-scorer for the Pirates, scoring twice in the first quarter. “We lost, but that team was not better than us,” senior goal keeper Bryson Foxwell said. “This loss better open our eyes.”

The owner of Joe’s NY Pizza & Pasta in Palm Coast, Michael Bennici, said, “a thin, airy, crispy crust, a well-seasoned pizza sauce, topped with whole milk mozzarella. ... Fat is flavor. That’s what you want.” For 15 years, Michael Bennici has been dishing out authentic pies with all the fixings. He and his brother, Joe Bennici Jr., opened the family restaurant in April 2, 2004, at 1070 Palm Coast Parkway NW. Their father, Joe Bennici Sr. was from Sicily, Italy. Their family grew up in Yonkers, New York, where Bennici Sr. ran a gas station business. After moving to Palm Coast in 1993 and graduating from Flagler Palm Coast High School in 1999, Michael Bennici partnered with his brother to open Joe’s Pizza, in honor of their father. “He was back of the house; I was front of the house,” Michael Bennici said about his brother. “We kind of were good cop, bad cop. I was the bad cop, he was always the good guy. We had nicknames, like I was called the Shark, he was called the Manatee, so it was good because it was a balance of both. But since then, I kind of have to be both, so I’m not so hard anymore.” Michael Bennici has been carrying on the business since Joe Bennici Jr. died in January 2016. Joe’s is the oldest running pizzeria in Palm Coast, with 15 years of service, no name changes or ownership shifts, Michael Bennici said. It has stayed a family business even beyond his blood relatives. “We pride ourselves on being one big family,” he said. “Restaurant business is crazy; it could be a dysfunctional family at times, but we’re still a family.” A few of the current employees have worked there for 10 plus years, including front of house manager Ashley Smith and man-

ager Alex Stephens, who creates pizzas in the kitchen. “We’re consistent,” Stephens said. “We put out a good product people care about. I care about it.” Almost hidden from street view, Joe’s isn’t a place you just stumble

into, Michael Bennici said. “If you pull in this parking lot, you’re coming here,” he said. “And if you blink, you’ll pass it.” Still, word-of-mouth advertising has kept them thriving for 15 years, Michael Bennici said. “They just find us,” he said. “You know the old saying, ‘Build it and they’ll come?’ Well, we did that and they come.” In the next few weeks, Michael

Bennici and Stephens will be opening Bronx House Pizza in Ormond Beach, with sights set on a few other locations between St. John’s and Volusia Counties after that. “I didn’t want to open another Joe’s without my brother, and this place is not going anywhere,” Michael Bennici said. “I’ll be here for as long as I can — hopefully another 25 to 30 years.”

RYMFIRE ELEMENTARY STUDENTS FUNDRAISE FOR LEUKEMIA PATIENTS, INCLUDING FIRST-GRADE PEER This year, Rymfire Elementary School’s Pennies for Patients campaign goal to raise $1,500. The school surpassed that to raise a total of $1,855. On Tuesday, April 9, Megan Then from the North and Central Florida Chapter of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society was presented with the check in Amber Baumert’s classroom, which raised the most money due to their very own special superhero: Sophia Costa. Sophia was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in June 2017. Due to intense chemotherapy treatment, her immune system was weakened and doctors advised her to be home-schooled for kindergar-

ten. But she was able to go to first grade while still finishing the remaining year of a lessintense chemo treatment. “Last year, her big brother raised money through the LLS Student Series in her honor and his class was awarded a lunch for having raised the most money,” said Sophia’s mother Marlene Costa, in an email. “She was then invited by LLS to be an honored hero for the 2018-2019 school year Student Series program, and we gladly accepted.” Sophia has six months more of treatment to go. Visit https:// www.facebook.com/sophiawarriorprincess to follow her journey.

LUNA-TICS PLACE SECOND AT STATE ROBOTICS COMPETITION Flagler County’s all Girl Scout robotics team, The Luna-tics, placed second in the Project Research category at the state robotics competition in April. They previously placed first in Strategy and Innovation in February at the at the First Lego League division tournament, where they earned a bid to the State Robotics Tournament.

The team is comprised of five Flagler County Girl Scouts ages 12-14 who come from four different Flagler County Girl Scout troops and four Flagler County Schools (Indian Trails Middle School, Buddy Taylor Middle School, Wadsworth Elementary and iFlagler).

A group of Indian Trails Future Community Problem Solvers called “Student Food Contribution” raised $1,400 for the Grace Community Food Pantry’s Walk for Food, which was held in March, according to pantry organizer Dottie Colletta. This will help feed families and go toward the backpack program for Flagler Schools students.

FPC FLIGHT STUDENTS INSPIRE BOBCATS Belle Terre Elementary School students in Mrs. Waldner’s third-grade FLIGHT flagship program traveled to visit the Flagler Palm Coast High Schools students in their aeronautics program. Students enjoyed flying in their simulators, watching their drone demos and hearing about how planes are able to fly. “This made a nice connection between what we are doing at the elementary level and the Flight program available to high school students,” Assistant Principal Katrina Feola said in an email.

On Saturday, April 13, and Sunday, April 14, the group paddled for Sophia Costa, Flavio’s daughter, who is a first-grader at Rymfire Elementary School. Sophia is battling Leukemia. Her mother, Marlene Costa, said Sophia is currently in remission, but her battle is far from over, as she still has quite a few months before she ends treatment. “This cause is very near and dear to our hearts and has a special meaning because we know first-hand the struggles when faced with a cancer diagnosis,” Marlene Costa said. The paddle team raised nearly $2,000. Visit http://tinyurl.com/ y26c48b6.

FPC BULLDOG PATROL TALKS SCHOOL SAFETY AT MARJORY STONEMAN DOUGLAS PUBLIC SAFETY COMMISSION MEETING Members of the Flagler Palm Coast High School Community Problem Solvers group FPC Bulldog Patrol presented their project at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Commission meeting, April 9-10, at the BB&T Center in Sunrise. The invitation to speak came from Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, who chairs the commission. The Bulldog Patrol has assembled classroom survival kits with the help of fellow students in

FPC’s Fire Leadership Academy, facilitated getting first-aid training for teachers, coordinated with students in the school’s aeronautics program and Air Force JROTC to work drone monitoring with first responders during an emergency, collaborated with members of the school’s television production team to create a safety video, and worked with Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly to have FCSO K-9 units randomly patrol their school.

The group, made up of students Nicholas Blumengarten, Abbigail Carver, Sydni Leon, Gabrielle Jackson, Katia Martynuk and William Patin, previously earned Grand Champion at the Florida FPS Affiliate competition in March and an invite to the FPSPI International Competition in June.

FIRST IN SHOW PAIGE WILSON COMMUNITY EDITOR

Flagler Palm Coast High School senior Stephen DiMaria likes to convey powerful, raw emotions through his photography. One of his most recent works — a black and white digital photograph of a girl glaring into the lens while angrily grabbing her hair — won First of Show at the Flagler County Art League’s eighthannual spring show “Poetry and Art at FCAL, the Endless Love Affair.” The opening reception was held Saturday, April 13. His first-place piece is part of a series he created called “Afflicted.” “My style is kind of more artistic portraits I would say,” he said. “They really focus on the eyes of my subject.” An inventive photographer, DiMaria uses a black bed sheet as his background. Paired with some lighting equipment he borrows from his uncle and his Canon Rebel T5, he creates pieces that make audiences feel. “Each photo shoot, I have my subjects do different poses. ... I have them portray a different type of emotion,” DiMaria said. He’s in the advanced photography class at FPC and plans to attend Daytona State College to earn an associate’s degree in photographic technology. This is the second show with

FPCHS senior wins first at Flagler County Art League spring show

FCAL in which he has placed. Earlier this year, he earned First and Second of Show at the juried art show. “It’s just something that’s a really big part of my life,” he said. “I haven’t been doing it too long though. It’s just a way to express myself.” The opening reception showcased poems and arts of different mediums. There were nearly 50 poetry entries — a record number for FCAL’s spring show. The poetry competition was held in honor of National Poetry Month. First place for poetry went to Orlando resident Peter M. Gordon for his poem “After Dog Sitting.” Best of Show for the artists was St. Augustine resident Beverley Ulrich, who won with her “Ascension” acrylic.

Kids could visit K9 units and explore the Marine/ Beaches’ Jeep and airboat. BRITTANY KERSHAW PUBLIC AFFAIRS MANAGER, FCSO

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office hosted its first annual Safety Expo on Saturday, April 13, at the European Village in Palm Coast. Over 1,000 local residents and children stopped by to learn important safety information and see exhibits from the FCSO and its partners in safety in Flagler County. Children were able to be fingerprinted by COP volunteers, emergency response equipment and vehicles were on display and the FCSO Marine/Beaches’ Jeep and airboat were able to be explored. The Flagler Sheriff’s Police Athletic League had fun for the kids with tug-of-war, giant connect four, hula-hoops, giant checkers and more. An enormous Smokey the Bear made for a great photo opportunity, as did Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s 3-year-old alligator. FCSO K9 Units were there with the stars of the show, Baro and Valor. The most enticing exhibit at the Safety Expo appeared to be FCSO’s “Shoot or Don’t Shoot” simulator, the release states.
