+ Pack the park for Emily on May 28 When 18-year-old Emily Carnes was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, her teacher Jen Campanella thought she was one in a million. The teen’s story became even rarer when she found out her mom, Kendra, was also suffering from stage 3 breast cancer. “If you really add up the chances,” Campanella said, “the number is astronomical. But Emily is feeling good. Which is weird, because anyone who has known anyone with cancer knows they typically don’t feel good. But she’s going to school every day and has two jobs. She’s one in a million.” The organization Team Emily - #BattleIt is hosting its next fundraising event, Pack the Park Pink, at a Daytona Cubs game on May 28.

memorial day By Emily Blackwood | Staff Writer

Ormond Beach veteran serves despite disability Memorial Day service is 9 a.m. May 26, at Rockefeller Gardens. Paul McCauley may have lost his sight in the service, but not his passion to serve. After joining the Air Force in 1960, McCauley eventually was stationed in England and assigned frequent eight-hour flying missions. After too much flight time, his eyes “imploded,” he said, and he lost his sight. He was discharged in September 1970. “They told me go home and wait for a letter from the Veterans Administration,” McCauley said. “Now that’s a heck of a note, isn’t it? So I went home and a couple months later I got a letter.” After visiting the VA and their treatment facilities, McCauley was told that although he gained some vision back, he would be legally blind for the rest of his life. Despite his disability, he went on to finish college and has worked to help disabled veterans. “Doors start opening for a disabled veteran who has control of himself,” McCauley said. “I’ve lived a long life, but I’ve never stopped working for veterans — especially veterans with disabilities.” McCauley is involved in many veteran-based organizations, including the Memorial Remembrance Committee of Ormond Beach. He’s been chairman since 2008 and helps the committee put on the Memorial Ceremony at Rockefeller Gardens every year. “It’s the largest memorial remembrance service of its kind in

Ormond seeks budget input Modern technology has now taken over the process at city budget meetings. In the past, participants placed stickers on posters to rank spending items in importance. But at a May 20 town hall meeting at City Hall, the nine audience members who attended were given clickers, so their votes could be tabulated instantly and shown on a screen in the front of the room. “It gives everyone a voice, even if they are shy,” City Manager Joyce Shanahan. said. “It’s immediate and accurate.” The attendees first got a test on their knowledge of the budget process. The first question: What is the main source of revenue for the city? The choices were Property Tax, Other (sales tax, communications tax) and Utilities (water, garbage, etc.). Half of the audience believed it was Other, but the actual answer is Utilities, which provides 39% of the budget, or $25 million. Another question: What is the biggest expense in employee benefits? The choices were Retirement, Social Security and Workman’s Compensation. The correct answer, which the audience got right, is retirement, which costs the city $5 million per year. The audience was asked for input on what service is most important for the city to provide, and the overwhelming winner was parks and grounds. The Casements and Performing Arts Center got zero votes. More opportunities will be available for public input before the city has the first public hearing on the tax rate Sept. 2.

Cynthia Monroe, mother of third-grader Matthew Monroe, who played the Beast, said Melody Potash was the driving force behind the play. “The kids spent the school year learning, rehearsing and coming together under the direction of Ms. Melody Potash,” Monroe said, “a wonderful art and music teacher. She is amazing and the real story behind the wonderful production.” The role of Belle was played by Jillian Loutzenhiser.

Police lauded for meritorious service Program recognizes accomplishments, professionalism.

“God bless you, man,” Jeremy Royce, of Ormond Beach, told Police Officer David Lank. “You were there so fast. And that’s important when someone is having a heart attack. I’m here today because of you.” Royce spoke at the Ormond Beach Police Department Award Recognition Program as he presented the Life Saving Award to Lank. One morning last October, when Royce was not breathing and had no pulse, Lank performed CPR until paramedics arrived. “I want to show you my family,” Royce said to Lank, pointing to his wife and two children in the audience. “Today, I’m a husband and a dad because of you.” The Life Saving Award was one of several presented to officers and citizen volunteers May 19 at City Hall. This is the first year the awards have been presented in a formal ceremony. Previously, they were given out at staff meetings throughout the year, according to Chief Henry Osterkamp. Recipients received a framed plaque and a $50 gift certificate. An officer can be nominated by a supervisor or fellow officer, and the name then goes to a commit-

tee of police department employees, who pass along their recommendation to the chief. Citizen volunteers were also recognized. Detective Briana Mathis was honored for meritorious service in investigations. In January, a juvenile victim was robbed, severely beaten and then abandoned. During the course of Mathis’ investigation, it was determined that the incident was related to gang activity, and numerous suspects were identified. Several cases were closed and three subjects were arrested. Officer William Warmington was also honored for in-depth investigative work. After a traffic accident involving a death, he did extensive research, collecting bar receipts and establishing a timeline of events, which resulted in a DUI arrest. Officer Caleb Braun received the Chief’s Commendation for taking extra initiative in an investigation that resulted in the arrest of a murder suspect. An abandoned car had never been reported stolen, but he tracked down a relative of the owner, and found that the owner was the victim of a homicide in Holly Hill. Evidence in the car led to an arrest. Receiving Letters of Commendation

from the chief were officers David LaBrie and Stephen Mills for exemplary service in handling an attack by a pit bull that had previously killed three dogs and attacked their owner. The officers responded to calls of help from the owner, who was trying to prevent the dog from killing a cat, and Mills shot the dog with his service weapon after the dog attacked LaBrie. LaBrie received bites to his neck and arm. A Unit Commendation went to a group of officers who solved a series of car burglaries. They caught two suspects leaving the scene of a car break, and through investigation, connected them to several other break-ins. Recognized were Sgt. James Doggett, Cpl.

CITIZENS FOR ORMOND BEACH

By Wayne Grant | Staff Writer

Solutions for ‘zombie’ homes proposed When the housing bubble popped in 2008, a rash of foreclosures followed, leaving vacant houses sprinkled throughout the nation’s cities. The effects are apparently still around, as about 75 people crowded the auditorium at the Ormond Beach Regional Library on May 14 to hear about the situation. Citizens for Ormond Beach, a volunteer civic group, has studied the problem in detail the past few months and invited the public to see a presentation on causes and solutions. “Many of these houses have been shuttered for years,” said organization President Rita Press. “These houses are not like fine wine, which gets better with time.” One of the main points made in the presentation was that the city does not have a code for maintenance of house structure. The city codes mainly deal with the care of the lawn.

Also, the institution that holds the mortgage should be held responsible, said Anita Lapidus, of CFOB. She said there should be codes for structure, and either the owner or mortgage holder should be found in violation of the code. “They go after the title holder, who is long gone,” she said. Currently, banks must provide the city with the address of a property that becomes vacant and where foreclosure has started. They must then arrange to have the lawn mowed. However, research by CFOB revealed vacant houses under foreclosure notice that were not on the city’s list. Also, Lapidus said, the fee to register an abandoned property should be increased so that an enforcement program would “pay for itself.” Other solutions offered by the group included adding more code enforcement staff, forming a committee to monitor

the situation and providing education on how to avoid foreclosure. Press said the good news is that the city has been taking steps to remedy the situation. “This is a city that listens to activists,” she said. “Sometimes activists have to nudge them along.” City Manager Joyce Shanahan said, “We are looking at the code and plan to address the issues. I think we are moving ahead together in the right direction.” She said they must abide by code regulations issued by the state, such as notifying the property owner. Fran Gordon, of Mid-Florida Housing Partnership, said the best way to solve the problem is through prevention. She mentioned two programs that can help people who are in danger of foreclosure. One is called Florida’s Hardest Hit Fund, and will pay the mortgage for a year. The other is called the Principal Re-

duction Program. She said that when it opened, it had 10,000 applications statewide, and was only open for a short time. She said it was now open again. For information on the mortgage assistance programs, call 274-4441, Ext. 301. Margie Patchett, who said she has worked as a real estate closer “for years,” said the city should issue liens on problem properties. She said at some point the liens will be paid at a closing. John Adams, of Adams, Cameron and Co., Realtors, agreed that “it all comes down to code enforcement,” and property owners should be held responsible. “A lot of people (under foreclosure notice) think they can just mail the keys to the bank, and then five years later they find out they still own it,” he said. He said it takes banks a long time to foreclose on properties “because there are so many.”

FIRE / FROM PAGE 1A on a pension reform, which is a part of the contract with the fire union. Those changes include a minimum age eligibility requirement of 52 for new hires with 25 years of service, a benefit level reduction for new hires to a 2.75% multiplier from 3.33%, a cap on overtime amounts and leave buyouts, and a more equitable rate of return for employees choosing the Deferred Retirement Option. “In 2013, the city changed its defined benefit pension plan for its general employees to mirror that of private business with a defined contribution plan for all general employees hired after January 2013,” Shanahan wrote in an email. “Collectively, these benefit changes are expected to save the city $250,000 annually as we move forward.

OBITUARY: TWIN DIES IN UTERO Eric Christopher DeVriese Jr. passed away in utero at 10:18 p.m. Saturday, May 17. Eric was the son of Eric and Melissa DeVriese of Ormond Beach. In addition to his identical twin brother, Henry Lockwood, Eric Christopher is survived by his older sister, Annamarie; his paternal grandmother, Sandy DeVriese; and maternal grandparents, Locke and Ann Burt of Ormond Beach. To honor the memory of their son, a funeral service will be held 10 a.m. May 23, at St. James Episcopal Church, 44 S. Halifax Drive, Ormond Beach. A burial service will be held immediately following the church service at Hillside Cemetery, 143 Seton Trail. Lohman Funeral Home in Ormond Beach is managing the services. The DeVriese family is very thankful for the continued support from family and friends and asks that you continue to keep Henry Lockwood and their family in your thoughts and prayers.

and spirit of compromise from the fire union to move forward with pension reform.” President of the International Association of Firefighters Local 3499 Eric Sommerlad said the department felt the negotiation was fair and the union voted 35-3 to approve the deal.  “We worked hard, and we came up with the pension reform that the mayor had talked about,” Sommerlad said. “When you have bad years like we did from 2005 to 2011, pension works very poorly. Now pensions are performing much better. Prior to the bad years, I don’t think anyone was calling for a pension reform. There was a time, before my day, where pensions were a supplement that said, ‘OK, you’re paid a little low so this pension will help you retire.’ I still think they’re important, but they can be expensive.” Sommerlad said the changes in the fire-

That’s a lot of people, and we are still counting.” The one-hour service, sponsored by the city of Ormond Beach, will be held 9 a.m. May 26, at Rockefeller Gardens, 25 Riverside Drive. The invocation will be rendered by Rabbi Howard Schwartz, and the benediction by Chaplain Willie Branch. The guest speaker is Maj.

He will also soon be remembering the day he lost his eyesight: June 3, 1970. “I always do something,” McCauley said, “have a drink of scotch or go out to dinner to celebrate. I’m a disabled veteran, and I have a considerable empathy. I’ve seen them, I’ve worked with them in the hospital and in their homes. I know my own plight when I was out of the service. The empathy I have for veterans is in the heart, and you can’t erase that.”

fighters pension will have an impact on their new hires. “I think we’ll see more turnover,” Sommerlad said. “In the long term, they will see the whole picture because now they want firefighters to work longer. I’m 50, and my chances of getting hurt are greater as I get older. But we don’t have sour grapes. As a person that wonders how the city works, Joyce Shanahan and the mayor and commission have done financially what it has taken to get through these bad years. They’ve done exactly what they are supposed to do, and we can’t fault them for that.”

They were able to suppress the fire and keep it contained to the attic, but there was smoke and water damage throughout the house, according to a city spokeswoman. The fire was apparently caused by a lightning strike. The property owners were out of town and there was no one in the home. A fire crew from Volusia County also responded. Property damage was estimated at $150,000. The house was purchased last year for $418,000, according to the spokeswoman.

Golf: A game of mind over matter

Friedrich Hayek “Road to Serfdom,” 1944

Golf is played year-round in Florida, but warm-weather fans like me wait until the cold winds stop blowing before gathering up the clubs and all the other gear: the tees, balls, little score card pencils WAYNE and other i m p l e GRANT ments of the game. A catcher’s gear is traditionally called the “tools of ignorance,” but with my game, that description could apply to my golf gear. And I have the golf gear. Every golfer has those handy items: little telescopes to find out how far you are away from the pin, ball washers that look like big golf balls, club covers,

devices to pick up the ball so you shouldn’t have to lean over, etc. The reason for this plethora of equipment is that golfers are sitting ducks at birthday time. If you golf occasionally, you’re getting the latest devices. Ah, the first time out! The stroll in the balmy, spring breeze with the green trees against the blue sky. And then the run for the clubhouse as lightning appears in the distance. As Mark Twain said, golf is a good walk spoiled. I suppose you could go for a walk through the landscape instead of golfing. But, stopping at the top of each hillock and savoring the scenery would look odd if you weren’t hauling a bag of clubs. It’s a good excuse to get away from the TV screens, cell phone screens, tablet screens, computer screens and the next screen yet to be invented. You’re out in the quiet, tran-

quil world of golf. Tranquil, that is, until you start enjoying the nature scenes a bit too much, and the foursome behind gets impatient. It’s a simple game: Just hit the ball with the club toward the hole. You only have to think about keeping your arm straight, head down, eye on the ball, follow through but don’t watch the ball, grip the club but not too tight, don’t bend over too much, and a few others. But I wasn’t thinking any of those things when I hit the first two shots I made. They were pleasant to watch, arching through the sky and then bouncing lazily down the fairway. But then things went awry. A huge chunk of sod flew and the ball dribbled away, or the ball made a “duck hook” into the trees. What did I do? Raise my head? Were my feet too close together? Elbow not straight?

If you’ve learned the proper swing, it’s best not to think, and just let muscle memory take over, because the golf swing is controlled by the major muscle groups. Sadly, I don’t have any major muscle groups. The same is true around the greens: It takes a while to get the touch back. I was hitting it all over the place, trying to think how far to take back the club, where to place the ball in my stance. Then, after several strokes, I simply walked up to the ball, glanced at the hole and poked at the ball without thinking. It bounced on the green and rolled obediently to the cup. It’s a mind game. Or maybe a mindless game. But I’ll be out there again. Trying to find that elusive swing. You can take my advice. I came close to breaking 100 once, with a few mulligans.

Yuschok, who created the Flag Pole Garden for his Eagle Scout project, said he wanted the flag to be flying in time for Memorial Day.

The Ormond Beach Art Guild held a reception May 15 at The Casements. The organization has 28 members and host four shows a year, two at The Casements and two at the Ormond Beach Library. “We have all varieties,” Glenda Donoghue said. “I’m a pastel artist — I only do pastels. Tried everything else and was stuck on pastels. But I think the wide varieties of mediums used makes for an interesting grouping.” Joan Koehler won the Viewers’ Choice Award at the Spring Exhibit of the Ormond Beach Art Guild, continuing at The Casements until June 6.

Not his backpack? 11:36 p.m. — 1300 Block of Northside Drive. Narcotics. The officer noticed a car parked illegally. The officer walked up to the car and noticed that the driver, the female suspect, was someone he had taken into custody for narcotics a month ago. He noticed that the passenger, the male suspect, was also arrested at that time. The officer asked the male suspect to open the window, and the suspect exited the vehicle. After smelling cannabis, the officer read the male suspect his rights. The officer then instructed the female suspect to exit the vehicle, and read her Miranda rights. She said there was no cannabis in the vehicle, and the smell may be from her smoking cannabis earlier that day when she got off work. The officer found cannabis and smoking material in a backpack on the floor, in front of the front seat. The officer told the male suspect that he was under arrest, and the suspect said the backpack was not his. The suspect said the backpack was there before he entered the vehicle, and he did not know who owned it. The officer was standing beside the suspect’s vehicle, by the driver door. The suspect was behind his vehicle, standing in front of the patrol car. The officer pulled a small electronic device from the backpack, and asked what it was, and the suspect immediately said it was an MP3 player. The officer asked him how he knew it was an MP3 player from looking at that distance, if the backpack was not his. The suspect did not have an answer. The officers also found cannabis in

OPPOSITE FIELD Joey LoMonaco | Sports Writer

Sage words from Wise As if the 200-yard sprint circuits weren’t enough to weed out any undesirables, Mainland football coach Scott Wilson ended practice Monday by telling his team that he’s not going to tolerate guys who get in trouble around campus. Those guys, he said, are the same players who, more often than not, do their own thing at the biggest junctures in the biggest games JOEY — blowing it for LoMONACO the team. And, as one of his assistants reminded the group, “We want all of you out here, but we don’t need any of you. If every one of you decided not to come out, there’d still be a football program here at Mainland.” That’s probably true. That’s why the Bucs have made the state playoffs every year since I was drinking out of a sippy cup at age 3. But I don’t think you’re ever too young to learn that lesson — don’t big league anyone. The folks at urbandictionary. com define “big league, verb- to intentionally ignore someone in order to appear superior.” In practice, though, the phrase denotes being too cool, too big, too special to help someone out or function as part of a group. Ricardo Allen’s a big shot now, an NFL draft pick, someone who will likely join the ranks of 1%-ers in the immediate future. Did he have to talk to me, a sports writer at a tiny weekly? He could’ve big-leagued me, easy. Instead, he opened up and recounted a pretty cool Draft Day narrative. It’s not the first time someone helped me out when he didn’t have to. As a college junior, I had no clue how to pursue sports writing as a career. I reached out to Washington Post columnist Mike Wise via email for advice. I didn’t expect a response — dude had a radio show and a sweet corner office in Northwest. Why would he waste his time on me? But in 2012, he did. Joey, the fact that you have respect for me disqualifies you from any prospective employment from now on — even at Starbucks. ... I would scour the country with your resume. Nowadays, it’s just a click away. What happens with most big operations is they just get so swamped in daily stuff they forget they even talked to you. So you have to be persistent. Have you tried the Free Lance Star? Good luck. Mike I did try the Free Lance-Star, freelancing (no pun intended) for the Fredericksburg, Virginia-area paper for more than a year. And the experience ultimately led me to land in Ormond Beach. Given the chance, I’ll always try to pay it forward.

happy (recruiting) trails By Joey LoMonaco | Sports Writer

Tallahassee Bound

Mainland’s Westbrook commits to FSU A.J. Westbrook never took an official visit to Florida State. His only hands-on experience with the Seminoles program came from a summer camp trip last year. “I just liked the way they ran their practice, and we got to see their locker room, and it was really nice,” Westbrook recalled. Next year, the Mainland standout defensive back can boast his own space within the “really nice” facilities. Westbrook committed to FSU Monday, just one day after Seminoles assistant Rick Trickett extended an offer. “It just feels really good. It’s unbelievable,” Westbrook said after practice Monday. Westbrook notched five interceptions

last season, returning four for touchdowns. Bucs coach Scott Wilson has seen the rising senior evolve and develop with each season. “He moved up as a freshman to the varsity, and then sophomore year he started,” Wilson said. “He’s just gotten bigger, faster and stronger every year.” Couple those measureables with an uncanny ability to read and react, and Westbrook is a coach’s dream — or equal. “His skill, the way he’s able to call the back end of the defense, he’s like having another coach on the field,” Wilson said.

Head coach: Marc Beach, 14th season 2013 record: 7-3 Offensive Scheme: Spread Defensive Scheme: 3-4 Top Returners: QB Jeremiah Wilson, Sr. (Transfer from Matanzas) LB Chayce Hamilton, Sr. LB Cole Dunagan, Sr. CB J.T. Davis, Sr. Spring Game: May 23 vs. Titusville Astronaut, 7 p.m. BEACH’S TAKE: On the team’s Red/White spring game, held Friday: “It’s hard to get a real feel when guys are split up and practicing next to each other. We probably had some JV guys going up against some varsity guys on the defensive line and just experiencing that.

“We got out of here injury-free, which is important, and the kids played hard, and they had a good time. We’ll work at it and keep getting better. We’ve had a great spring as far as effort goes. We’ve got a long ways to go to get ourselves where we need to be by next Friday, but we’ll keep working.” On QB Jeremiah Wilson’s integration into the offense this spring: “He made some good throws, and with thie leadership part of it, he stayed positive. He had a couple drops there, but overall not too bad of a day.” On CB J.T. Davis’ role in the secondary: “I think our back seven are really good players. He needs to be the leader for the secondary, because there are some younger guys back there. You have (Brad “Bubba” Ballash) and some other

guys who can step up and help, too.” Notes: — While spring games are a bit of a mixed bag as far as evaluation is concerned, Dunagan came away impressed with his linebacking corps and defensive unit. “Actually, we did a lot better than I expected to,” he said. “We did our fundamentals right, everything that I thought we should do. And I was proud of a lot of the younger guys who came out and ran hard.”

Ormond Beach drinks up for

AmericaN Craft Beer Week

Locals got a taste of three Ormond Beach breweries during the week-long event. Ormond Beach knows how to drink. Three local breweries and distributors celebrated American Craft Beer Week May 12 to May 18 with festivities and free samples. Volunteers for distributor S.R. Perrott were on hand with different beers to try at the Daytona Cub’s Beer Fest on May 17. Perrott’s President Michele Connors said the company was proud and excited to participate. “As an independent beer distribution company,” Connors said in a press release, “we are proud to invest in craft brewers and provide them with the

support they need to reach retailer shelves and bar taps, helping consumers access a wide selection of beer brands.” Vincent Morrisey, who works for S.R Perrott, helped organize Beer Fest five years ago. “Every year we’ve been growing,” Morrisey said. “When I first started selling craft bear there wasn’t a lot going on. Now they are all over the place.” “This is our first year doing it,” Cliff Stevenson, of the Ormond Beach Brewing Co., said. “We’re the new brewery in town and we want everyone to know

how awesome we are.” Tomoka Brewery another new Ormond Beach brewer, participated in the event for the first time this year. They hosted their own Sourfest on May 16 to celebrate a beer that was popular 100 years ago in Europe. “With the craft beer movement and everything, it’s kind of coming back,” owner Peter Szunyogh said. “We are a craft brewery, so we like to do something special for it. Since we opened last July, it’s getting very popular. We want to keep making better beer.” emily@ormondbeachobserver.com

ack Garcia, 49, looked into the camera and shared his story as a reminder to the public that those infected with HIV and affected by HIV are in the fight together. Garcia, of Palm Coast, is one of the Florida residents participating in the Florida Department of Health’s Faces of HIV project. Through captivating portraits, interviews and poignant journal writing, the Faces of HIV project examines the effects of stigmas, the personal relationships and care issues associated with being HIV-positive. “What keeps me going is I’m here for a reason and I’m not dead, so I need to keep living, helping and being part of society,” Garcia said in his video segment for the project. “Make people realize that just because you’re HIV-positive, it doesn’t mean that you are a thorn in the world.” Participants of the project address how they became infected with HIV and first dealt with their diagnoses, as well as their personal relationships and effects of HIV on the body. To expand the impact of the project, a mobile art exhibit has been traveling throughout the state and will make a stop Saturday, May 24, at the Blue Crab Festival, in Palatka. The exhibit gives visitors an up close and

personal glimpse into the lives of those living with HIV in hopes of promoting awareness and understanding about the disease. “I want to assist the community in knowing that you can be infected or affected by this disease, and we should help each other, be good to each other, and be a shoulder for each other,” Garcia said. Garcia filmed his interview not only in English, but he also participate in the Spanish version of the project. He said that by being a participant, he has realized that all those involved in the project have a common goal to make everyone aware and responsible for their actions, to get tested and to protect themselves. In addition to video interviews and portraits, another part of the project is journaling by the HIV-positive participant, which gives a more personal look into their lives. While talking about his journaling experience on camera, Ormond Beach resident Jeff Allen paused to compose himself and reel in his emotions. “Why me.” he wrote. “Not why me do I have the disease, why me was I spared. I’ve seen so many beautiful, gifted individuals that had so much to offer and their light went out so quickly. Here I am able to write into this wonderful journal, and feel these emotions, and work through them, and so many aren’t.” At the mobile art exhibit, visitors are in-

The mobile art exhibit features portraits of HIV-positive Florida residents, who want to share their stories.

He is hoping that by becoming a Face of HIV, his story will help show people that complacency is not the way to go — education is.
