“I might cry,” Kristin Heron said, turning right into Bulow Creek State Park. “I’ll either cry because it’s here or cry because it’s gone.” According to the Florida Park Service sign posted at its entrance, the Fairchild Oak has “withstood hurricane winds, fires, droughts, wars and the follies of mankind for centuries.” Now the 400-year-old tree can add Hurricane Matthew to its list, only losing a few loose branches and a lot of moss. Heron, a local artist and Ormond Memorial Art Museum curator of education and outreach, has been coming to visit the tree every year on her birthday since 1996.

Businesses say Biketoberfest smaller but still a success Destination Daytona still sold over 70 new and used motorcycles.

Max Skinner was one of the many bikers that still attended the annual event despite Hurricane Matthew.

very year, the businesses that participate in Biketoberfest put in a lot of work to make it a successful event. But this year, they had to put in a little more overtime. “We had just a few days to prepare,” said Mandy Rossmeyer, of Bruce Rossmeyer’s HarleyDavidson. “It’s my family’s bread and butter. We would never consider not having it.” Destination Daytona was just one of the many businesses on North U.S. 1 that had little time to get ready for the weekendlong event that typically brings in 150,000 bikers to town every year. Hurricane Matthew hit Florida’s East Coast Oct. 6 and Oct. 7, bringing down many trees and power lines with it. Some businesses, like the Iron Horse Saloon, didn’t get power until two days before the event kickoff. “We did our best to keep everything going,” said Iron Horse coowner Melissa Penland. “We were trying to follow the city’s lead, and we made every effort possible to make sure everyone who came was happy.” Though attendance numbers are not yet available for this year’s Biketoberfest, Lodging & Hospitality Association of Volusia

Police seek driver in fatal hit-and-run An Ormond Beach man was killed and a 9-year-old boy was injured in a hit-and-run crash on Interstate 4 at 10:35 p.m. on Oct. 15. Thomas Reece, 47, died at the scene, according to Florida Highway Patrol. Austin Reece, 9, was airlifted to Arnold Palmer Hospital with serious injuries. Their car was traveling eastbound in front of the suspect’s car, described by witnesses as a white Chevy Malibu with a headlight that was out before the crash. As the suspect car changed lanes, the driver lost control and sideswiped Reece’s car, a 2004 GMC SUV. The SUV went off the roadway, down a ditch and overturned. The driver, Thomas Reece, was ejected. He was not wearing a seatbelt, according to FHP. The boy was wearing one. Witnesses say the suspect car may have a different-color rightfront quarter panel. Anyone with information may call FHP at 407-737-2213 or Crimeline. The crash remains under investigation, and charges are pending.

The Daytona Beach Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, the organization that puts on the event, could not be reached for comment. “Our numbers were low compared to last year,” said Rossmeyer, “but considering what everyone went through to get here, we’re pretty happy.

Facing the storm A family must now replace their home and possessions.

The Vanvalkenburgh family faces many expenses after a tree destroyed their mobile home. Seated are Judy and sons Francis and Brian. In back are Kevin, the dad, and Sammyjo, their daughter who lives nearby.

A tree fell onto their home during the hurricane.

DAMAGES IN ORMOND BEACH Ormond Beach had a total of $25,620,003 in damage from Hurricane Matthew, while Daytona Beach had $22,673,154 and New Smyrna Beach had $23,888,640. The total for Volusia County was $222,360,823. In the following information, “affected” means missing shingles, broken windows, etc. “Minor” means windows or doors damaged, or damage to a component such as a water heater. “Major” means structural damage that will take at least 30 days to repair. “Destroyed” means repair is not feasible. In Ormond Beach: Single family homes: 543 affected; 75 minor; 33 major; and 8 destroyed. Mobile homes: 2 affected; two minor; 3 major; and 3 destroyed. One retail store and one multi-family building had major damage. One hotel had major damage and five had minor damage. One restaurant had major damage.

“Who would you be bitter at?” asked Kevin Vanvalkenburgh, when asked why he was in good spirits as he looked at the remains of his home on Collins Street. It was a force of nature, Hurricane Matthew, that made the mobile home unlivable. He shared it with his wife, Judy, and two sons, ages 6 and 8. They could not afford wind storm insurance, and nearly all their possessions were destroyed. They had just spent their savings on remodeling several rooms. “What I’d give to have that money back,” the dad said. They thought the storm was over on Oct. 7 and were having breakfast when his wife, Judy, bent over to pick up a piece of toast. A tree broke through the house and a large branch went over her. “We’re lucky,” said Kevin. They are hoping to get their heavily damaged mobile home replaced by FEMA. When they first called the agency, they were told that approval had not been given for individuals to apply. On Oct. 18, FEMA notified the public that residents of Volusia and Flagler counties can now apply. The agency had to assess the damages to determine if the area was eligible, according to a spokesman.

Vanvalkenburgh works as a security guard, while his wife, Judy, volunteers at their children’s school and works part-time. “We work hard like any other American family and now are in real need of help,” she wrote on their gofundme page. “Water damaged mostly everything in the house. We have to replace all our furniture. Beds, appliances and the TVs got ruined and so did the computer. I was able to save some of our clothes but not much. We are praying that FEMA will help us replace the house but the expenses we have are overwhelming.” They have lived in the mobile home for 15 years. “It’s sad because the kids grew up here,” said Kevin Vanvalkenburgh. The couple also has two grown children. He had wanted to get the tree that fell cut, but couldn’t afford it because there was an extra charge because it was near some electrical lines. The day after the hurricane, neighbors came over and cut up and removed the tree that was lying on their house. “I told them I couldn’t pay them,” he said. The neighbors worked all day and cut the tree up and removed it from their home. Judy made them cheese sandwiches because that’s all she had.

DEBRIS PICKUP The city has contracted with two companies to pick up debris along the rightof-way. There are 21 trucks working and the first complete pass of all city streets is expected to take another 20 days. There will then be another pass. Officials say there is more debris than after the 2004 storms.

CONTACT FEMA Individuals in Volusia County have been declared eligible for assistance from FEMA. Individuals and households may apply for grants for hurricane-related needs such as home repairs or replacement of property not covered by insurance. Renters can apply. Call 800-621-3362 or visit DisasterAssistance.gov.

“I wish I could have made more,” she said. Vanvalkenburgh said his wife is sad because after the remodeling, it was like a new home. They were even thinking of selling and moving to something better. But they are staying upbeat. “We’re alive,” the dad said.

The city is considering regulations for wireless infrastructure.

Today, people can watch a movie on their phone. They can use the GPS on the mobile device to find their way around. These conveniences have caused a demand for more data, and this will result in more infrastructure, such as antennae added to telephone poles, standalone towers like telephone poles, or more tall towers. After receiving a permit from the city to build towers and antennae a company would then sell space on their equipment to service providers. The Ormond Beach City Commission had a workshop Oct. 18 to get ready for this future growth. John Noble, city engineer, said the city wants to provide service but also wants to be careful about the aesthetics of the city. At the workshop, Susan Rabold, of CityScape Consultants, outlined areas the city should consider in developing rules for companies that seek to build infrastructure. Rabold told the commissioners that the demand for data has skyrocketed. In addition to computers and phones, people have other devices such as iPads, so there is a need for interconnectivity. “We need a lot of broadband,” she said. Mayor Ed Kelley pointed out that service providers are offering unlimited data, driving a demand

for more service. Many communities are installing smaller towers or antenna wherever service is needed. Rabold showed one example of ornate, old-fashioned light poles that are also transmission towers. Options for the large towers include camouflage or towers that look similar to trees. Some towers serve as flag poles, or blend in with the structure of a building. Rabold said the city can’t regulate radiation transmission from the towers, because federal government studies show the tower radiation is not harmful. Commissioner Troy Kent asked Rabold to send him a copy of those studies. Rabold said the city should create a hierarchy of the types of equipment it would prefer to see in the community. City Manager Joyce Shanahan said the next step will be to decide where coverage is needed most ,and develop a master plan. In January, the City Commission approved an ordinance limiting the height of poles in the public right of way and the number of new poles a telecommunications company could add. The commissioners passed an ordinance, but the second reading, for final approval, was tabled when it was decided that the commissioners should hear from a telecommunications expert before setting guidelines. The commissioners could vote on the ordinance in a final approval on Nov. 1.

Though creepy clowns are expected around Halloween, there are some creepy enough to inspire police reports. Ormond Beach police received a call from the Ormond Beach Middle School resource deputy Oct. 4 about a suspicious social media post from the Instagram account “Daytona Clowns.” “It mentioned, ‘I’m coming for everyone’ and listed a bunch of schools including OBMS,” said OBPD Public Information Officer Keith Walker. “It also said something like, ‘I’m looking for kids walking out at night in Ormond Beach.’” Later on, officers received a call about a subject wearing a clown mask and driving a white Toyota Prius around Sanchez Park, which surrounds OBMS. Several officers were sent to the area to look for suspicious people, but none were found. Several hours after that, a mother reported she heard students had seen a man with a clown mask holding a knife and standing in the woods. Police talked with several students but could never find the person who actually saw it. “Another person called in saying they saw a person wearing a clown mask driving a white Toyota Tercel,” Walker said. “We think it’s the same car.” OBMS Principal Matt Krajewski said though there have been rumors of clown sightings at the school, none have been verified. An announcement was made during school for students to report anything suspicious, but to “not be a part of the rumor.” Krajewski sent a message to parents making them aware of the situation. “We had two students come to us and say they saw a suspi-

cious man walking around outside,” Krajewski said. “It turned out to be our assistant principal doing a perimeter check. I don’t ever want to tell the kids to not say anything. Everything that is reported is checked out. If you see anything suspicious, let us know.” OBMS isn’t the only school with clown rumors. Seabreeze High School was named on the Daytona Clowns’ Twitter page also on Oct. 4 in a post that asked which school they should come to first: Mainland, Seabreeze, Spruce Creek or Atlantic. Seabreeze won. The next day the message “We’ll be at seabreeze soon,” was posted on the Twitter page followed by two photos inside the campus. Later that night, the following Tweet was posted with a photo of the Ormond Scenic Loop: “Getting ready to set up. see you soon. If you dare come to the loop beware of what can happen.” The account was last active Oct. 11 with a selfie of a man wearing a clown mask. The Twitter page is public, but the Instagram account is private. There have been no reported incidents at Seabreeze. “We’re on the lookout,” Walker said. “All threats need to be taken seriously. Call us, and we’ll check it out.”

Biketoberfest: necessary tradition or too much too soon? This weekend our city welcomed a fleet of bikers, even though our streets are currently lined with debris.

COMMUNITY EDITOR

I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted. For the past two weeks, my life has been Hurricane Matthew, Biketoberfest and the aftermath of both. I navigated my way through debris-ridden roads in the middle of the night despite a nice policeman telling me not to. I climbed over a dozen fallen trees and received over a dozen bruises. A group of biker dudes jokingly tried to take my camera. I picked up a weird glass bottle on the beach full of what turned out to be pee. A greasy gentleman in leather chaps patted my head like a dog. I was shoved through a small kitchen window. So by the time my last story was filed Tuesday evening, I was ready to fall — or maybe collapse — into my bed for a FHCP Volusia Flagler Seminar OBO_10.375 x 8

Inviting bikers into this mess just felt like a really bad idea. But now that the dust has settled, I can say that I was kinda wrong.

solid three days. But then I remembered I had to write this column. Now, I don’t need to remind you of how messy our normally put-together city currently is. It’s like all the smart people who know how to properly use vacuums skipped town and left me in charge. It’s bad out there. And while we didn’t suffer from the same devastation and destruction that some of Hurricane Matthew’s other victims did, we still got hit. The storm may technically be over, but I think most of us agree that it’s really not. So when I learned that Biketoberfest was still happening, I was a little annoyed. Trees are still in people’s front yards. Signs are still knocked down. Some businesses are still closed from damage. And debris is still so packed 9/28/16 3:37 PM Page 1

on some street corners that it’s almost impossible to spot oncoming traffic. Inviting bikers into this mess just felt like a really bad idea. But now that the dust from the fleet of motorcycles has settled, I can say that I was kinda wrong. You see, I went out for my first Biketoberfest and fully expected to feel irritated and claustrophobic. But instead, I felt slightly relaxed. In the sea of leather jackets and bandanas, there was only laughter, music and a lot of beer. No talk of tree trimmer scams or branches in our driveways. No mention of yard work and how expensive getting through all this will be. No one wondering out loud when we’ll “get back to normal.” Because, for a brief evening, we all felt normal.

So was Biketoberfest a little inconvenient? Sure. But so was the hurricane and the power outages and my camera dying in the middle of taking storm photos. Life is inconvenient — but that doesn’t mean it stops. A LIST OF THE WEIRD THINGS I SAW DURING BIKETOBERFEST:

 A guy painted like a skeleton holding a selfie stick  Someone intensely headbanging to a “Nickleback” song  Beard braids  A miniature horse riding in a sidecar  Clowns that weren’t trying to be creepy  And a wallet that “caught on fire” everytime its owner started talking to a pretty girl

Rita and Marty Press

Longtime activist to change direction A familiar face will be missing from the Planning Board dais next year. After 19 years, Rita Press, a well-known community activist, has decided to retire from her seat on the board. “On Christmas Day, I’ll observe a birthday,” she said recently. “I’ll be 80 years old.” In all of those years, she only missed three meetings. One was because of a tennis tournament and two were for family weddings. And her husband, Marty, was always in the audience. “He deserves a medal,” Press said with a smile. “He probably set a record.” While no longer on the board, Press will likely still be seen at meetings, except she’ll be at the podium where citizens speak. She believes that with her knowledge of local government, she can help advocate for the public. “I’m going to be active in the community,” she said. “I want to work with residents and city staff for the betterment of the city.” Marty Press said he found the meetings interesting through the years. “We’re political junkies,” he said. “We talk about the issues. We never get tired of it.” The Presses were early advocates for the Loop, a local scenic roadway, and now both serve on the board of the Ormond Scenic Loop and Trail. She will also continue with her work at Citizens for Ormond Beach, where she is currently president, and concentrate on the quality of housing and the neighborhoods. With CFOB, she was very active in the “zombie” housing issue which resulted in new codes and monitoring of houses that are in the foreclosure process. LOOKING BACK

“The folks on the Planning Board that I have served with through the years were always thoughtful in their decisions,” she said. “They were always courteous to the speakers and tried to address everyone’s concerns.” She also is very complimentary about the city Planning Department staff, saying they always had time to meet with her and answer questions. One of the positive changes over the years was the addition of Neighborhood Meetings, where developers and city staff meet with residents. “They are wonderful,” she

‘PRESS’ SEATING

At the Planning Board meeting where Rita Press announced her retirement after 19 years, Chairman Doug Thomas said there should be a chair named after her in the meeting room. Press responded that there are already three chairs with her name on them. In the front row, there are chairs with the word, “press” for media seating.

said. The only change she would like to see is more information from the neighborhood meetings provided to the Planning Board. She was also involved in the requirement for drive-thru restaurants on Granada Boulevard to be approved by a City Commission vote. Also, at one time motor homes were allowed to be parked in driveways, and now it’s against city code. Press also recalls that she suggested adding a fountain to a retention pond years ago, and now it’s a common addition. A BUSINESS BACKGROUND

Press was a housewife until 1983 when she came up with a product and started a business called LABELEZE INC. She ran the small business for 15 years and then sold it. The couple retired to Florida 26 years ago. Their children had moved to Florida, and they liked the small town atmosphere of Ormond Beach. In Ormond Beach, Rita and Marty were SCORE counselors for 10 years, helping small business owners. Before retiring, Marty Press worked in merchandising for a shirt manufacturing company in New York. Press was nominated for the Planning Board year after year by City Commissioner Bill Partington. “She was always prepared and always did her homework,” Partington said recently. Also, being active in the community, she had a strong sense of what residents wanted the community to look like, he said. “She and Marty are wonderful people,” he added. Her involvement with the city included serving on the Smart Growth Committee, Environmental Advisory Board, citizen committee in establishing Andy Romano Beachfront Park and the citizen advisory committee for the city manager search in 2008. She also was goodwill ambassador for the City Commission from 2004 to 2011. She has been president of CFOB since 2001.

“She was always prepared and always did her homework.” BILL PARTINGTON, city commissioner

PHONY FPL 1:23 p.m. —1500 Block of Hand Avenue Fraud. The victim said he got a call from someone who said his name was Robert and that he was with FPL. The suspect told the victim that he needed to pay $538.36 so that his power did not get shut off. He told the victim to put the amount on a pre-paid Visa card and then call back with the number. The victim followed the instructions. The suspect then told him he was going to have to pay more money for a different meter. At that point, the victim got suspicious and hung up the phone. He called FPL and they told him that they did not call him.

GETTING TRIMMED 2:00 p.m. —100 Block of Cumberland Avenue Fraud. The victim saw a tree company performing work next door. One of the workers came over and offered to do work for her. She had a lot of debris in the backyard. He wrote out a quote on the tree company letterhead with an amount of $1,750 to clean up the back yard and bring the debris to the front. The suspect asked for cash but the victim did not have enough so wrote a check. The victim asked her to write the check out to him personally instead of to the company. The crew completed all of the work they agreed on. There was also a large tree to be removed, and the suspect said he would come back the next day. He told the victim to call him on his cell phone rather than the company. The next day, the victim called the company number on the quote and the person who answered did not know who they were talking about. It appeared someone was using their business name to solicit business. The police officer was able to get the suspect on the phone. The suspect said he was asked to be a subcontractor for the company when he was at a mower store. He did not have the last name of the person he talked to or the phone number. The tree company owner said he wanted to press charges for using his business name. He believes the suspect had a relative who used to work at his business, and that’s how he got the letterhead.

LOST AND FOUND 8:31 p.m. — 1000 Block of West Granada Boulevard Theft. The victim said he left his bicycle outside a house of worship, and when he came back outside, the bicycle was gone. A different bicycle was in its place, but he said that bike was now gone. He went to a department store down the road to buy a new bicycle, and found what appeared to be his own bicycle on the rack for sale. It was the same brand, and was dirty. There was no record of a bicycle return on that date, and there was no video footage.

The Amendments

AMENDMENT 2 ARTICLE X, SECTION 29 Use of Marijuana for Debilitating Medical Conditions Allows medical use of marijuana for individuals with debilitating medical conditions as determined by a licensed Florida physician. Allows caregivers to assist patients’ medical use of marijuana. The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to patients and caregivers. Applies only to Florida law. Does not immunize violations of federal law or any non-medical use, possession or production of marijuana. Increased costs from this amendment to state and local governments cannot be determined. There will be additional regulatory costs and enforcement activities associated with the production, sale, use and possession of medical marijuana. Fees may offset some of the regulatory costs. Sales tax will likely apply to most purchases, resulting in a substantial increase in state and local government revenues that cannot be determined precisely. The impact on property tax revenues cannot be determined. AMENDMENT 3 ARTICLE VII, SECTION 6 AND ARTICLE XII Tax Exemption for Totally and Permanently Disabled First Responders Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to authorize a first responder, who is totally and permanently disabled as a result of injuries sustained in the line of duty, to receive relief from ad valorem taxes assessed on homestead property, if authorized by general law. If approved by voters, the amendment takes effect January 1, 2017. AMENDMENT 5 ARTICLE VII, SECTION 6 AND ARTICLE XII Homestead Tax Exemption for Certain Senior, Low-Income, Long-Term Residents; Determination of Just Value Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to revise the homestead tax exemption that may be granted by counties or municipalities for property with just value less than $250,000 owned by certain senior, lowincome, long-term residents to specify that just value is determined in the first tax year the owner applies and is eligible for the exemption. The amendment takes effect January 1, 2017, and applies retroactively to exemptions granted before January 1, 2017.

AMENDMENT 1 ARTICLE X, SECTION 29 Rights of Electricity Consumers Regarding Solar Energy Choice This amendment establishes a right under Florida’s constitution for consumers to own or lease solar equipment installed on their property to generate electricity for their own use. State and local governments shall retain their abilities to protect consumer rights and public health, safety and welfare, and to ensure that consumers who do not choose to install solar are not required to subsidize the costs of backup power and electric grid access to those who do. The amendment is not expected to result in an increase or decrease in any revenues or costs to state and local government.

Heather Caeners  Age: 40  Years practicing law: 16 years  Areas of expertise in law: Family, probate/guardianship, landlord/tenant, criminal, general civil  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your opponent? I have practiced in a majority of the fields that a county judge could be rotated, and I have a well-rounded legal background, unlike my opponent. I have tried 10 times the number of jury trials as my opponent. I strongly believe a judge needs to know how to try a case in order to preside over one. A person seeking to have their case heard should not be concerned that the judge presiding over their case has little to no experience trying cases. I am the only candidate with any criminal trial experience as a prosecutor and a defense attorney. This perspective is important to be able to intimately understand both sides of a case.  If elected, how would you change things in a way residents might notice? I would work to open the doors to the courthouse. We have a large number of resources available through our local law libraries. Unfortunately, many people are not aware of these resources and just search the internet or ask other people for advice. The internet is a great source, but many times people do not realize they need to know what the laws are for Florida. All state laws differ and unknowingly a person may rely on the incorrect laws. I would strive to involve the local libraries to hold information sessions for members of the community to attend and learn of these resources. A combined effort of the great local law librarians and community librarians could help open the doors to the courthouse. An open and accessible court is what our justice system is based on, and we do have the tools to make that happen.  What can you tell us about your temperament? Why does that make you suited to be a judge? Patience and attentive listening are my most important characteristics that make me suited to be a judge. I have been a domestic violence prosecutor dealing with some of the most horrific instances in a person’s life. Currently I serve as a family law practitioner that gets to see good people at their worst point in their lives. I have spent years patiently listening to my clients and victims as they cried or yelled. I know that patience and understanding lets people know they don’t have to yell to be heard. A judge who lacks patience will make hasty decisions based on emotion and not the law. A judge is the one person in the courtroom that will be held to a higher standard to not become emotional or lose patience.

Shirley Green  Age: 61  Years practicing law: 23  Areas of expertise in law: Primarily civil, but I have presided over traffic and misdemeanor criminal cases  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your opponent? I am the incumbent judge, having held this post for the last 12 years. During that time I have presided over more than 33,000 case with less than 65 appeals. I have presided over both a criminal and civil docket. Additionally, I run one of the most efficient dockets in Volusia County. I have developed various tools that keep my docket moving.  If elected, how would you change things in a way residents might notice? I, currently, educate litigants and the community through brochures and games. I authored a small claims brochure for unrepresented litigants and a game called "Courtroom Jeopardy" for elementary and middle school students. The brochure is mass produced by The Volusia County Bar Association. Further, I have developed several mediation programs. I discovered that people have more respect for the justice system and feel that they have been treated fairly when they have more input and control in the outcome of their case. There was mediation for other civil matters but not for evictions. I immediately wrote a proposal for a landlord/tenant mediation program that is now in practice throughout the Seventh Judicial Circuit. Ninety-five percent of the cases settle by providing money for the landlord, and it helps the tenants avoid homelessness.  What can you tell us about your temperament? Why does that make you suited to be a judge? I describe myself as a Christian, mother (six children), grand and great-grandmother (28), daughter, sister, aunt, friend, public servant and judge. The county court is called the "People’s Court"; most people that I encounter in my courtroom fall within one or more of those categories. My experience in these areas helps me to identify with people and their life experiences. Additionally, I receive letters and compliments about my demeanor. People tell me that, even when they lose, they feel that they were treated fairly, understood and respected.

 Age: 61  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your opponent? My eight years as attorney for the Value Adjustment Board allowed me to review all the complaints our taxpayers had with the Property Appraiser’s Office. I reviewed over 14,000 mini trials over such issues as property valuation and exemption qualification. Those eight years working with Morgan Gilreath, and my 36 years as a real property lawyer in Volusia County make me the most qualified candidate  If elected, how would you change things in a way residents might notice? Making sure our new residents know that they have to apply for their own homestead exemption after they buy a home in Volusia County.  Describe a common problem that might arise for a property appraiser. How would you solve it? One common problem that arises is whether the application for an agricultural exemption is supported by the good faith use of the land for commercial agriculture. The solution is by a review of factors including: · The length of time the land has been used for agriculture · Whether the use has been continuous · Whether the land has been cared to with accepted commercial agricultural practices.

 Age: 64  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your opponent? I do not look at the other candidate as an opponent. I am running for the Volusia County Property Appraiser and not against anyone. However, I understand that the voters decide if the following points can earn their vote: · I am the only candidate that earned the position on the ballot by petition. · I am the only licensed property appraiser by the state of Florida for more than 10 years. · I am the only candidate currently working as a professional appraiser. · I am the only experienced public administrator for more than 20 years as a department head or higher similar to the current property appraiser, Morgan Gilreath. · I am the only candidate that has been trained and experienced for a state of emergency such as forest fires and/or hurricanes. · I pledge to produce fair and just values.  If elected, how would you change things in a way residents might notice? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Change occurs incrementally through several combinations of techniques: · Use of a Mystery Shopper program. · Compiling and categorizing written complaints for review and evaluation. · Use of staff evaluations on critical events, and share the findings with the teams. · Reviewing critical incidents for improved services. · Staff goal setting. · Integrating the overall goals and objectives and identifying areas of public input. · Walkabouts and use of the lively art of conversation with taxpayers in the field. · Returned phone calls within 24 hours, or better known as the Mayor David Hood Rule. · Third-party survey to measure departmental performance, including but not limited to the degree of residential “notice.”If you want to improve something, you need to measure it.  Describe a common problem that might arise for a property appraiser. How would you solve it? One of the most common questions is the idea that the property appraiser “will lower my taxes.” The property appraiser is in the valuation business; the need to educate the public about their property and their taxes is an ongoing concern. The other problems shared by property owners and Real Estate professionals dealt with exemptions, especially the homestead exemption. Therefore, I would seek ways to provide a seamless transition for taxpayers to maintain their homestead exemption in a painless process at the closing and not worry about filing a timely paper with the Property Appraiser’s Office after the purchase.

 Age:73  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your opponent? During my service as city commissioner and as mayor of Ormond Beach, I have shown my willingness to work together and build consensus through leadership.  In what ways could the county cut costs to reduce the tax burden on residents? A complete evaluation of policies and procedures would likely show exactly where savings will be. There will always be ways to be more efficient through technology and using best business practices.  What is one thing the tourism department is doing well? What is one thing it should do differently? Having three different agencies hinders efficiency, but it was explained to me that it is required by state law. If they could be combined, it could be more efficient.

 Age:54  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your opponent? For me, it is service before self. During the hurricane and after, I made sure the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and other services were available to our citizens. I assisted the outlying communities in getting tarps for holes in roofs, and did well-being checks on the elderly. Only a week later have I started clean-up on my personal property. I was here, and have been asked, “where was my opponent?” I heard he went to Georgia.  In what ways could the county cut costs to reduce the tax burden on residents? We have been constantly working on cost cutting. It is currently reflected in the reduction of general fund mileage rates, and I keep looking for more cuts.  What is one thing the tourism department is doing well? What is one thing it should do differently? The sole responsibility of our tourism departments is to promote our county as a tourist destination, and they have been doing it well. I have encouraged the tourist district to reach out and do more online advertising, and to encourage more venues to come to the greatest tourist destination on the planet earth, Volusia County!

 Age: 42  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your opponent? I was not placed into this race by any specific group or person(s), and I have no hidden agendas. I represent the people of District 4. Having been on my own since I was 14, I understand the daily struggles that most of our citizens face each day. I am not afraid of hard work and have the motivation and tenacity to do the best job possible in this role. I have many local business achievements here, like Small Business of the Year Award (2012) and Influential Woman in Business Award (2014) and started a successful company with the sole purpose of helping others to succeed. In addition to many years of service as a law enforcement officer, I have worked to help enact victim’s rights laws, on the State Public Affairs Committee representing women/children in our area, member of the Daytona Regional Chamber’s Legislative Committee, etc. I will work to keep the lines of communication open with the public. I will support small business and help them thrive. I have already begun meeting with people to put those plans in place.  In what ways could the county cut costs to reduce the tax burden on residents? Streamline county spending and pursue strategic planning to broaden the tax base by bringing more higherwage businesses to improve the local economy  What is one thing the tourism department is doing well? What is one thing it should do differently? We need to improve our reputation outside of the county as a family destination.

 Age:58  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your opponent? I am a lifelong resident and a longtime business owner in this community. I have served on many civic boards, including the Downtown Daytona CRA advisory board for 17 years. I've also created and managed several local community events and have been a radio talk show host on WNDB's morning show for several years. I have gained a lot applicable knowledge through these experiences that have prepared me for the job. I am very passionate about our community and confident that I am the best person to represent the citizens of District 4.  In what ways could the county cut costs to reduce the tax burden on residents? While there are always savings to be found in a government as big as Volusia County, my focus will be on increasing our local economy through meaningful job creation and assisting our local small business grow through reduced regulations and streamlined permitting.  What is one thing the tourism department is doing well? What is one thing it should do differently? They have done a good job of implementing costeffective web-based marketing. Should be a more unified approach to marketing of Ocean Center.

DISAGREE

The city of Ormond Beach should contribute annually to support operating costs at any future homeless shelter built by the county. The county should be willing to restrict beach parking as an incentive for a hotel developer, if the developer will provide offbeach parking. The county made the right decision to allow law enforcement officers to give a civil citation for someone caught with a small amount of marijuana. All beach approaches in Ormond Beach should remain open yearround, even if the toll revenue does not pay for the costs.

 Age: 58  Years in Ormond Beach: 42  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your opponent? Positions of trust demand that candidates be of unquestioned integrity. As a retired Central Intelligence Agency senior manager and as a special agent for the CIA’s Office of Inspector General, I have been trained to protect taxpayers from fraud, waste and abuse. I possess 33 years of experience. I have prepared material for Congressional Budget Justification Books and coordinated activities between local and federal agencies. Further, I served for six years as president of a homeowners association composed of 508 owners, with a $24 million infrastructure.  In what ways could the city spend money more wisely? To ensure a sustainable economy and broaden its tax base, the city needs to encourage investment and relocation of office-based companies through advertising promoting the benefits of our city. This would facilitate smart growth and job creation, leading to a higher median household income and create career opportunities. The city should also expand its bike trails and open green space and invest more in water reclamation and solar power.

 Age: 61  Years in Ormond Beach: 32  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your opponent? I have lived continuously and permanently in Ormond Beach for over three decades. I raised my family here, I have made investments here, I worship here and I run businesses here. I'm an active member of Citizens for Ormond Beach, Ormond Beach Chamber of Commerce, Ormond Main Street, Ormond Beach Historical Society, Daytona Beach Area Association of Realtors and Team Volusia. I'm committed to this community. I love Ormond Beach, and I want to serve the citizens of Ormond Beach.  In what ways could the city spend money more wisely? There are two major financial concerns: unfounded liabilities associated with employee retirement expenses and dramatically rising costs of health insurance. Both of these threaten the quality of life in Ormond Beach.

 Age: 44  Years in Ormond Beach: 44  Why do you feel you're more qualified than your opponent? Having served on city advisory boards and committees for over 20 years makes me qualified. Ormond Beach is my hometown, and I love our great city. I have served our city by making sure that only the right projects were developed as past chairman and current vice-chairman of our Planning Board and past chairman of our Development Review Board. I desired to keep Ormond Beach's development standards and zoning regulations high as chairman of the Land Development Code Rewrite Committee, and I wanted our downtown to become vibrant again as a member of the Downtown Revitalization Task Force, and as past president and current board member of Ormond Main Street.  In what ways could the city spend money more wisely? I believe that we are fortunate to live in a city that has the thirdlowest tax rate among all Volusia County cities, and we continue to have high levels of service. The city can always spend more wisely when reviewing contracts with private vendors for city services, to ensure we are getting the best possible value.

Rob Littleton  Age: 31  Years in Ormond Beach: 8  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your opponent? I feel that my experience in business and finance makes me uniquely qualified to serve as a city commissioner. Furthermore, I hope to use my background as a small-business owner, certified tax preparer, and government outsider to bring a fresh perspective to our City Commission.  In what ways could the city spend money more wisely? The City Commission and city manager do an excellent job overseeing a responsible budget that is fair to the taxpayer. There are, however, opportunities to better control costs. First, we must continue to operate our budget with low administrative expenditures. Additionally, the city needs to find new ways to address rising health care costs and pension liabilities while still offering great benefits to current city employees and keeping our promises to retirees.

 Age: 31  Political party: Democrat  Years living in the district: Born and raised here, so about 28 years (I spent a few years just over the district line and in the Everglades National Park).  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your competitors? I am a product of this district, and I offer a more balanced and accurate representation of it than my opponent. I have started, owned, and operated small businesses in the district, and I serve on several nonprofit boards locally. My commitment to this community cannot be matched; my history and actions prove this.  If elected, how would you change things in a way residents might notice? Residents would notice real engagement from their state rep in the issues that affect their quality of life, not just someone that shows up for photo opps.

 Age: 49  Political party: Republican  Years living in the district: 2  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your competitors? I was privileged to serve our country in the U.S. Navy, both on active duty and in the reserves. That service involved assignments in the U.S. and overseas and included two wartime deployments: in the Persian Gulf as part of Operation Desert Storm and, 20 years later, in Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. During this time, I was proud to serve with the finest men and women I have ever known, who have a deep love of country, place service above self, and never quit until the mission is complete. They are my model for public service. After law school, I returned to public service as a prosecutor. Currently, I am a business attorney and partner in our firm, so I understand the challenges faced in running a business. I have served as the current state representative for District 24, where I advocated for principles important to our community. Leadership experience in the military, as a prosecutor, and in business will allow me to provide leadership for our community in Tallahassee.  If elected, how would you change things in a way residents might notice? I have served District 24 since April 2015. During that time, I have supported policies that promote economic growth, expand opportunities, and improve the quality of life for all Floridians. I have co-sponsored legislation that can lower the cost of health care, give greater control to patients and improve health care quality. We have reduced state taxes on our citizens, while also supporting record funding for education. Sen. Travis Hutson and I were able to secure needed state funds for the Malacompra Basin Water Quality Enhancement Project, Flagler’s Adults with Disabilities Program, and the Summerhaven River Restoration Project, among others.

DO YOU AGREE? As a voter, what do you think about the state of Ormond Beach? What do you want to see in the future? We asked the candidates to consider several statements and tell us how much they agree or disagree with the statements, on a scale of 1-10. A “1” means you completely disagree; a “10” means you completely agree. (Note: There is no truly neutral number. A “5” means you slightly disagree; a “6” means you slightly agree.) The statements are listed below. Take a minute to fill out your own reactions. How do your numbers compare to the candidates’ answers?

 Age: 48  Political party: Republican  Years living in the district: 22  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your competitors? I think my experience, both in the business and civic worlds, have prepared me well for the challenge that is our state Legislature. I consider myself a consensus builder and someone who can properly advocate for our county on a larger scale.  If elected, how would you change things in a way residents might notice? The community has real challenges, particularly in bringing the type of jobs that we need to the area. If I am given the chance, I feel confident our state will continue to be a leader in job creation, with the difference being we will start seeing more of those jobs locally, as opposed to other areas of the state which offer no direct benefit to Volusia residents.

Noel Cheryl Bickford  Age: 64  Political party: Democrat  Years living in the district: 17  Why do you feel you’re more qualified than your competitors? I will put the citizens of District 25 ahead of political ideology and special interest groups to do what is right for the people. My background in health care, education and community service, as well as my experience with small business, make me well suited to best represent all the people of District 25.  If elected, how would you change things in a way residents might notice? I will make a difference by working to protect and strengthen public education, addressing the unequal education funding formula in Volusia County which hurts our students, improving the local economy by identifying and creating better job opportunities, increasing access to health care which will bring jobs to our area and reduce our taxes, supporting increases in medical and nursing education statewide, preserving and protecting our water and our environment, advancing renewable energy and advocating for the benefit of our veterans.

The state of Florida is doing a good job of protecting the environment. Cities should have more power to challenge counties if they want to provide ambulance services.

DECLINED TO ANSWER.

It’s important to try to bring as much state money back to the district as possible. Generally speaking, the state should do more to restrict gun ownership. Local school districts should have more control to adjust their tax rates.

SPORTS This is it JEFF DAWSEY SPORTS EDITOR

Fall sports are coming to a close, which means the end for seniors.

S

C.J. Wilson ran for over 100 yards against Matanzas, including a 61yard score on 4th-and-1.

JUST ANOTHER

FRIDAY What may be the opposing team’s biggest game of the year is a regular night for the Bucs. JEFF DAWSEY SPORTS EDITOR

E

xcuse the Mainland Buccaneers if they don’t make much of the teams they play against on any given Friday. Having already won a state championship — and gotten close other times — the Bucs play big games on a regular basis. This past Friday, the media and the opposing team hyped what many thought was going to be one of the best games of the season. Two undefeated teams. Same district. Both high-scoring while only allowing few points. One team seeking revenge. Mainland vs. Matanzas seemed like a dream game for area football fans. It was a blowout. The Bucs have won 31 of their 34 games in the last three seasons, and they played many state- and nationally-ranked opponents to get some of those wins. They expect to win. No matter where their opponent is ranked, according to head coach Scott Wilson, the opponent won’t change Mainland’s weekly preparation. “We’ve been on the other side as well, coaching other sports,” Wilson said. “When you play a team that’s ranked and has a great record, you want to play your best and sometimes find something

The Bucs held Philip Moultrie to a season-low 60 yards. He had previously run for 1,000 yards in five games.

within yourself that you didn’t know was there. We realize that teams will always give their absolute best against us. We just prepare our boys for 48 minutes, not a few exciting plays.” Mainland’s area dominance over the years hasn’t stopped

opposing teams from boasting on social media. Even teams who haven’t beaten Mainland in years often say they’re planning to shock the local juggernaut. “If folks are willing to provide fodder,” Wilson laughs, “we use it.”

ome student-athletes treat their sports like jobs. They dedicate themselves to their craft on a daily basis. They sacrifice friendships, the chance to make extra money with a part-time job, and some trade out TV time for a playbook. Those athletes spend all of that time for a couple months’ worth of games — games that should be given 100%, because students never get them back. Every athlete wants to end the season on top of a podium, receiving the golden championship medallion. If that doesn’t occur, students begin to interrogate themselves. “What more could I have done to get there? Did I push myself to the max? Did I push my teammates? Did we really give it our all?” For some of the sports already, conference, district and even regional play has concluded. That means some student-athletes’ 2016 seasons have ended. It went by pretty fast, right? I wonder how many seniors have already shed tears, knowing they have hit their last high school golf ball or spiked their last prep volleyball. I wonder how many underclassmen hate the fact that they have to wait an entire year before redeeming themselves after their last performance. While seasons have ended for some, others are still competing. And what exactly does that mean for them? They can finish their year with no regrets. No matter how many mistakes they or their teammates have made, these students are still in it. No weightlifting session should be cheated. When running suicides, every line should be touched with emphasis. An extra basket of golf ball should be hit during practice. Student-athletes should do all within their power to make it to this season’s finish line and be able to proudly exclaim, “I gave this year everything I had.” The offseason is brutal. The offseason is hot. The offseason is uncomfortable, and the offseason is twice as long as the actual season — sometimes longer. With all the hard work it takes to make it through the offseason, in order to finally enjoy the regular season, now is the time to make that work count. Student-athletes, finish strong. Make sure you remember this year for all of the right reasons.

JEFF’S GAME PICKS

SIDELINES

FLAGLER PALM COAST (1-5) AT DELAND: FPC wins 23-7. In the battle of the Bulldogs, this should be a game that FPC wins. DeLand has its own set of struggles but doesn’t have a playmaker anywhere close to FPC’s Que’Shaun Byrd. Look for Byrd to have a big game that leads to FPC’s second win of the season.

The Seabreeze Sandcrabs

The Seabreeze Lady Sandcrabs won the Dink Pink Tournament Saturday, Oct. 15, at Mainland. The Sandcrabs beat Matanzas, University and Mainland all in straight sets, though they played with only seven for the last two matches, because their homecoming was held on the same night. Lula Harris led all players with 36 kills and added four blocks, and Shannon Stack: won 20 service points, including 12 aces. Vail Linn added 22 kills, and Kate Roth had 43 assists Seabreeze and Mainland will begin the district tournament against each other tonight at 7 p.m. at Atlantic.

Mainland boys, runners-up The Mainland Bucs have advanced to the Florida High School Golf State Championships for the second year in a row after finishing runner-up in the region tournament with a 313 team score. Logan Reese led the Bucs with a 72 to finish second overall indi-

vidually. Scotty Greene scored a 75 to take fifth, and Tyler Reese shot an 81 for 10th. Shane Yelverton and Keith Froling shot an 85 and 87 respectively. The state championship will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 1-2, at Mission Inn Resort in Howie-In-The-Hills.

Sandcrabs cross country: just short The Seabreeze Sandcrabs finished runner-up at the Five-Star Conference Oct. 17. Seabreeze played six runners in the Top 20. Logan Horning took third; Shane Brownwig, fourth; Ian Yates, eighth; Nick Barnes, 12th; Jared Bell, 13; Dylan Oakes, 19. The district meet will be held on Saturday, Oct. 22, at New Smyrna Beach High School.

WHO WILL WIN ON FRIDAY? Hey there, football fans. This year, I’ll be making predictions, just for fun. Do you agree with my winners and the scores? Share your thoughts on Twitter: @PCOsports. My overall season record: 20-3 MAINLAND (7-0) AT NEW SMYRNA: Mainland wins 65-7. The only thing that will stop Mainland this game is the mercy rule. Coming off their impressive 41-0 shut out over Matanzas, the Bucs have shown that they have very few weaknesses in any area. That is bad news for the Barracudas, who have given up an average 45 points in their last six games. Mainland is playing their best football at the moment, and the Bucs should be able to put this game away by halftime.

MATANZAS (5-1) AT PINE RIDGE: Matanzas wins 40-3. After a gut punch of a loss to Mainland, the Pirates get their easiest opponent to date and will look to remove the taste from their last game. Matanzas’ overall goal remains intact – reaching the postseason — so the Pirates will use this easy win to regain momentum for the remainder of the season.

FATHER LOPEZ (2-4) AT COCOA BEACH: Lopez wins 45-21. Father Lopez has had its struggles throughout the season, including its most recent 45-0 lost to Trinity Catholic. But the Green Wave should win this game comfortably. While both teams have endured many lopsided wins, Lopez’s have come by way of better opponents. The Green Wave continues to show it plays up one game but does the complete opposite in the next. Good for them, Cocoa has only beaten some of the worst teams in Florida.

SEABREEZE (1-6) VS. DELTONA: Deltona wins 30-7. The Sandcrabs put up the most points (27) this season, against New Smyrna last week, but they also allowed the most points (56) this season. Deltona has a more stable offense than Seabreeze, and the Sandcrabs will have trouble repeating their 20-point output in two straight weeks, especially against a slightly better defense.

hile the most notable casualties from Hurricane Matthew are roofs, trees, and power lines, Ormond Beach almost lost another part of its landscape: a corn maze. Set to originally open Oct. 8, the Harvest Fields Corn Maze and Hay Ride almost didn't happen because the storm flattened the entire corn field. "We didn't think we'd be able to continue," said owner Troy Rentz. "But during the week it rose back up on its own." Though the farm has been around for a few years, it's the first time a fall festival event is being held on the property.

It’s a Southern good truck thing Food trucks have been growing in popularity, and a truck with a Southern flair has proven successful after opening a year ago. Lee Buckner, a pastor for Worship by the Sea, which conducts Sunday services at Andy Romano Beachfront Park, operates Southern State of Mind food truck. Buckner and his wife had experience in the culinary business. She ran a bed and breakfast and he was a restau-

rant manager. “We usually say that I do the cooking and she does the booking,” he said. When they got the opportunity to buy the truck, they decided to put their love of Southern cooking to work. They had lived in Virginia, Charleston and South Carolina. “It’s a mix of Southern and Florida cooking and we put our own twist on it,” he said. “It’s been great.” The truck pays the bills as he continues his ministry.

TEARS THROUGH ORMOND When the event’s original location in Port Orange was closed after the hurricane, Carlos Soldevilla provided a venue.

Kelly and Steve Steffee walked in honor of their daughter, Sutton Ruby. Kelly Steffee is the co-chair of the Florida TEARS Chapter.

EMILY BLACKWOOD COMMUNITY EDITOR

W

hen Sutton Ruby was born in 2014, Kelly Steffee felt an immediate connection to dandelions that she couldn’t quite explain. After Sutton’s death, Kelly Steffee and her husband, Steve Steffee, couldn’t bring themselves to look at the few photos they had of their daughter until what would have been her second birthday. They finally did and found some tangible evidence to her strange connection. “They were printed on dandelion paper,” she smiled, clutching a dandelion she had just found in Central Park in hand. “I don’t know why, but that flower always reminds me of my baby girl.” The co-chair of the Florida TEARS Chapter, a nonprofit organization that assists bereaved parents with the financial expenses after the loss of an infant, Kelly Steffee dealt head on with the struggles of planning the group’s fifth-annual Florida Rock & Walk for TEARS after Hurricane Matthew. The storm closed their original location in Port Orange, and they were almost left without a place to hold the walk that brings in parents from all over the state. “We posted on a bunch of Facebook Groups that we were looking,” she said, “And Carlos (Soldevilla) saw it and said we could use his restaurant.” Held Saturday, Oct. 15, the event included a ceremony honoring all the deceased infants, and a walk from La’s Bistro to Central Park families released butterflies in honor of the child’s memory. Fifty butterflies were released.

Jennifer and Michael Doddington walked with their son, Lance, for their daughter, Olivia Faye. It's their third year coming to the walk all the way from Oviedo.

A butterfly lingered on Lindsay Miller's finger before flying away. She attended the event in honor of Kendyll Bell.

“It’s healing for me,” Kelly Steffy said. “Helping people through their grief helps me.” For more information on the TEARS Foundation, visit thetearsfoundation.org.

Kettia Webber, Colby Webber, and their 2-week-old son Eli Lowell Webber walked in honor of their daughter, Aliyah.

A HAITI CONNECTION Local woman celebrates birthday EMILY BLACKWOOD COMMUNITY EDITOR

While many Ormond Beach residents experienced property damage and power outages during Hurricane Matthew, the aftermath was nothing compared to what happened to the residents of the La Digue Mathieux village in Arcahaie, Haiti. Several homes flooded, and the river rose to a level high enough to wash away gardens and kill cows that families relied on for a living. The high, dirty waters of the local canals increased the risk of cholera, typhoid and other illnesses. The ponding water and mud breed mosquitos and increased the risk of dengue, Zika and malaria. Though the Linkinhokers — Elizabeth, Dave and 14-year-old Grace — are from Ormond Beach, they rode out the storm with the residents of La Digue Mathieux, and are working to help them rebuild. “We live in a mountainous area, where the main income is from agriculture,” said Elizabeth Linkinhoker. “Losing livestock and gardens is extremely detrimental.” The family has been in Haiti for 15 months. Members of Salty Church, they are on a missions trip with Children’s Lifeline, an organization that provides solid Biblical teaching, food, clothing, medical supplies and facilities for educational assistance.

Dave Linkinhoker, Elizabeth Linkinhoker and their 14-year-old daughter, Grace.

They have three schools with 1,200 students, two churches, a trade school, multiple gardens, a feeding program providing 2,400 hot meals five days a week, a widow care program, a health clinic, a dental clinic and an orphanage with 20 children. “Being here during a hurricane was scary and sad in many ways,” Elizabeth Linkinhoker said. “We are in a safe and secure concrete home, but many people do not have that luxury. It was scary and sad for us thinking about how many people were huddled up and riding out the storm in homes made of sticks and mud, rocks and mud, tarps, or tin.” While people in Florida had days to prepare for the storm, most residents in Haiti didn’t

know the hurricane was coming until a few hours before it hit. “It wouldn’t do much good knowing in advance like we do in the U.S.,” she said, “because there is no place to evacuate to. Even if you did have the money to evacuate, people don’t have the money to stock up on supplies as they can barely afford day-to-day meals. And how would they possibly secure their homes anyway?” During the storm, Elizabeth Linkinhoker said they experienced heavy wind. It lasted two days, and on the second day they had about 10 hours of torrential downpour. “It was eerie at night hearing slamming doors that couldn’t be secured properly and tin roofs flapping,” she said. The family is asking people to donate to the village to help them make new gardens and get more livestock so they can begin to rebuild their lives. Donations can be made by visiting salty.org, choosing “Ormond campus,” and then “Haiti,” and writing “hurricane relief - livestock and gardens” in the memo. Those donations will go directly to the Linkinhoker’s mission. People can also donate to Children’s Lifeline’s Emergency Hurricane Relief Fund to add to the general hurricane fund that will go toward medicine, livestock, garden, food or home repairs.

by raising $850 for Haiti Idea Dinners founder Lacey McLaughlin partnered with Greektown Taverna and Ormond Brewing Co. EMILY BLACKWOOD COMMUNITY EDITOR

After the Ormond area avoided catastrophic damage from Hurricane Matthew, one local woman brought the community and local businesses together to raise $850 for relief efforts in Haiti. Idea Dinners founder Lacey McLaughlin partnered with

Greektown Taverna and Ormond Brewing Co. on Oct. 12 to host “Birthday to Benefit Haiti.” The event raised money for REBUILD Globally, an Orlando-based nonprofit that has provided job training, education and business development to alleviate poverty in Haiti since 2010. “My birthday was on Oct. 12, and I had to cancel an event I was planning due to the storm,” McLaughlin said. “That’s when I decided to host a fundraiser instead as a way to bring the community together after a stressful week and help Haiti.” Idea Dinners, an event planning company with a social mission, and Greektown Taverna provided the food and Ormond Brewing Co. provided the beers. “We asked for a suggested donation of $10, but everyone who showed up gave way more,” McLaughlin said. “I’m so proud of this community, and I think we all feel a sense of relief and desire to give back after avoiding catastrophic damage. We want to also help with local relief efforts and are looking for more ways to get involved.” REBUILD globally is currently on the ground providing relief efforts as well as long-term efforts to provide economic and educational opportunities for Haitians. Donations can be made at rebuildglobally.org.
