future of palm coast? By Andrew O’Brien | Staff Writer

Town Center landowners: City Hall will spark growth Landowners to Palm Coast City Council: ‘Exert that bold leadership.’ Huddled around a conference table in a meeting room on the third floor of City Centre high above acres of undeveloped land, several landowners talked about the possibilities of a developed downtown: shops, restaurants, businesses, apartments and

condos — all within walking distance of each other. To those six property owners, it’s just a dream right now. But they think it could soon be a reality. And if anyone can make that dream come true, they said, it’s the Palm Coast City Council.

“There is ready-to-build property under private ownership, but the city officials need to take the lead,” said Michael Chiumento, of Chiumento Selis Dwyer, which is located in City Centre, the lone business

MARTINEZ BACK IN BUNNELL By Megan Hoye | Staff Writer

Commission reconsiders Six weeks after Armando Martinez was told his tenure as city manager for Bunnell was coming to a close, the Bunnell City Commission has changed its mind. The commission will now negotiate a new contract for Martinez, it decided in a 3-2 vote during a Monday night commission meeting. In June, the same commission decided against renewing Martinez’s contract when it expires in October. Commissioners Elbert Tucker, John Rogers and Bill Baxley voted against Martinez; Commissioner Jenny Crain-Brady and Mayor Catherine Robinson vehemently supported Martinez, saying that he has helped turn the city around during his time

as city manager. During Monday’s meeting, Baxley suggested appointing an interim city manager, whom Martinez could train during his remaining time working for the city. Robinson was skeptical of this plan, asking why Martinez was qualified to train a new city manager if he was not qualified to act as city manager. “I just don’t get it,” Robinson said. “Why are we doing this? Is this for the good of the city of Bunnell, or is this for the good of personal agendas?” Instead, she made a motion that the board negotiate a new contract with Martinez, who currently earns about $100,000 annually. Crain-Brady and Baxley voted in favor of this

motion. The city will now enter negotiations with Martinez. During public comment, citizens asked that the board make up its mind, considering this is the third time in three months that the issue has come to a vote. Tucker has been the driving force behind the move to oust Martinez, but he has not yet revealed why. Baxley’s was the deciding vote Monday: He voted against renewing Martinez’s contract, but then in favor of renegotiating it. “I have not changed my mind,” he said. “When we brought it up to fire (Martinez), I voted no.” Baxley said he promised during campaigns not to renew the contract as written.

SAVINGS

Megan Hoye | Staff Writer

County cuts $1 million to suppress tax increase The Flagler County Commission agreed on a proposed tax rate increase of 0.975 mills. Property taxes will increase for Flagler County residents next year, but the increase will be limited to less than $1 per $1,000 of taxable value. The Flagler County Board of County Commissioners on Monday cut about $1 million from the county’s budget to hold down the tax increase. To save money, the commission will hire fewer employees next year and will decrease its cost-ofliving salary increase for current employees. After making the cuts, the commission agreed on a proposed increase of 0.975 mills. If that increase were approved, it would bring the county’s tax rate to $8.055 per $1,000 of taxable property value. The years after the recession squeezed the county’s budget, and now, County Administrator Craig Coffey said previously, the county needs to create a stronger, more sustainable budget. “There have been a lot of cans kicked down the road, and we can’t keep kicking them down the road,” Commissioner Nate McLaughlin said, referencing the capital projects that have been put off in the past five years. “There’s a junk pile in front of us,” he said. In addition to the county’s needs, Coffey said, the tax increase was unavoidable largely because of statemandated expenses that the county will begin to incur next year (for example, the county must now pay $455,000 more in Medicaid matching dollars). Most of the proposed tax increase would fund those state increases. It would also help pay for capital projects the county put off to survive as property values plummeted, as well as a slight cost-of-living raise for county employees. The $1 million in cuts came from shaving money from a multitude of sources. Coffey suggested that, rather than hiring seven new employees as previously planned, the county

‘that could have been me’ By Megan Hoye | Staff Writer

March supports Trayvon Martin Locals gathered Saturday to show support for Martin and oppose stand-your-ground laws.

Cassandra Stephenson displays a photo of Trayvon Martin in her home. It hung on her wall for more than a year after the teen was killed in March 2012, but one week ago, Stephenson took it down and placed it in a chair in her living room. That was the day a jury acquitted George Zimmerman of second-degree murder charges related to Martin’s death. “He’s my house guest,” Stephenson says. “I keep him where none of us can forget him.” Every day for more than a year, Stephenson looked into the 17-year-old boy’s face and saw those of her own sons. She saw what her grandsons will one day look like. Just 65 miles away from the neighborhood where Martin was shot, Stephenson knows his death could have just as easily been another’s — one of her family members, even. Saturday morning, Stephenson took the photo from its chair and joined more than 100 other Flagler County residents to march along Palm Coast Parkway in honor of Martin. The marchers didn’t seek to overturn Zimmerman’s notguilty verdict, although they said the case was unjust. Instead, they sought a repeal of the laws from which result sprung: Florida’s stand-your-ground law, which allows for the use of deadly force against threats, both perceived and actual. Zimmerman said in court that he shot Martin in self-defense. He was acquitted of all charges, a court decision that prompted national debate about laws like those in Florida, which 22 states currently have in place. What about Martin’s right to self-defense? marchers asked. Where does the line between actual threat and perceived threat lie? The day before, President Barack Obama expressed similar concerns.

Photos by Megan Hoye

The march ended with a time of prayer for lawmakers and for the families of those affected in the Trayvon Martin shooting. “If Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk?” Obama said during a press briefing on Friday. The night he was shot, Martin was unarmed and walking to his father’s home within a gated community in Sanford. Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch captain, saw him and called police to report a suspicious person. A series of burglaries had plagued the neighborhood recently. Dispatchers told him that police were on their way and advised him to stay in his car. Shortly afterward, neighbors reported hearing gunfire. Zimmerman admitted to approaching and then shooting the teenager, but he said it was done in selfdefense after Martin attacked him. Martin, who died on the scene, was on the phone with his 16-yearold girlfriend moments before he died. She told invesCassandra Stephenson first marched with this photo in Sanford, shortly after Trayvon Martin’s death.

tigators that she heard Martin ask someone why he was following him. Then, she heard what may have been a scuffle before the call dropped. Zimmerman’s defense said there was no way to know who threatened whom in the altercation. State statutes allow a person to use deadly force if “he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to him or herself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.” Defense attorneys said prosecutors did not prove that Zimmerman acted with malice. But critics of the law say it may increase violence because determining whether a person actually feels threatened is difficult. Others say that Martin never would have been targeted as a threat if he had been white. “Can anybody now claim self defense?” Stephenson said. “This has gotten a lot of attention in the African American community, but really, it’s everybody — are we safe if anyone can shoot us because they perceive a threat?” Obama on Friday called for an examination of laws like Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law. “I think it would be useful for us to examine some state and local laws to see if (they) are designed in such a way that they may encourage the kinds of altercations

and confrontations and tragedies that we saw in the Florida case, rather than defuse potential altercations,” Obama said. Palm Coast’s march, which was coordinated by Valerie Ottley, a neighborhood watch coordinator herself, spanned about two miles. The marchers were mostly black, and they held their signs high, many of them dressed in hooded sweatshirts similar to the one Martin was wearing before he died. Many of them had already warned their children about wearing those very sweatshirts — sometime before or after telling them how to behave when questioned by police (be respectful, make no sudden movements), a necessary caution that black children must hear, they said. As they walked, some passing drivers honked their horns or called out in support. Others slowed down, their hands out the windows, their middle fingers raised, yelling curse words and racial slurs. But they kept walking. After two miles and a loop back to where they started, the group held hands in the Kohl’s parking lot and prayed for peace, for unity and for the Martin family. Stephenson hugged her photo of Martin to her chest as the marchers dispersed. She was going straight home to put his picture back in the chair in the middle of her living room.

INBRIEF + Manhunt leads to arrest in county A 32-year-old robbery suspect lead Flagler County Sheriff’s Office deputies on a brief manhunt Thursday morning until he was located and detained by a K-9 unit at a home on Elder Street, in Daytona North. The incident began around 6 p.m. Wednesday, when deputies received a report of a home invasion at 1605 Laurel Ave., in Daytona North. The resident, Robert Elkins, 52, told deputies that Edmon Welch had entered the rear of his home. Elkins said Welch walked through the unlocked door and pointed a handgun at him and demanded $200. The resident told Welch he had no money and a visitor, Johnny McCaskell, 54, gave Welch $10 and two beers to get him to leave. Later Wednesday, McCaskell reported he was approached by Welch at the convenience store on County Road 305 around 11:30 p.m. There, Welch reportedly threatened McCaskell and brandished a gun. Deputies were unable to locate Welch on Wednesday. Around 8:30 Thursday, deputies went to Welch’s parents’ home on Elder Street in an attempt to locate him and arrest him for aggravated assault on McCaskell. When deputies encountered him, he ran into a wooded area behind the home. Deputies launched a manhunt, assisted by Flagler County’s FireFlight and units from the Bunnell Police Department, and located him covered in dense underbrush in the woods near the intersection of Willow and Lancewood streets. K-9 Marko was able to apprehend Welch at the scene. As part of the search, deputies had stopped passing motorists vehicles to determine if Welch was attempting to leave the area. Welch remained in the Flagler County Inmate Facility on Friday.

Leadership changes at Humane Society

+ Palm Coast family displaced by fire

After differences of opinion about whether the Flagler Humane Society should join forces with the Volusia County-based Halifax Humane Society, Diane Voigt has resigned as the president of the Flagler board. Nicole Brose will take over as president for the next few weeks until a permanent executive director is hired. The new executive director will be one of a few significant changes at the organization that cares for more than 4,000 animals per year — almost all of them from Flagler County, Brose said. A development director and other volunteers will be trained to more effectively raise money in the community through the Humane Heroes program. “We’re not government funded. We have some basic ani-

mal control contracts, but that doesn’t cover the costs,” Brose said. “Without donations in the community, we do struggle to pay for them.” She added: “Many animals come in with medical issues. They need more than a fluffy blanket.” Brose said the society doesn’t have reserves and is only at the break-even point each month. To help with funding, a grant has been secured, and that will be announced soon. To comply with a new state law, the Humane Society will also begin publishing its statistics online, including euthanizations, at www.FlaglerHumaneSociety.org. “We want the community to know exactly what is happening,” Brose said. “We want to be transparent … and break down

everything: how many feral cats come in compared to domestic. We think that once people realize what’s happening, they’ll be more willing to support us. When you have to euthanize animals, that gets controversial. But we do everything we can to save lives. That’s always the goal.” In addition to the Flagler County Veterinary Medical Association, several professionals donate their time and services to help, including Dr. Andrew Kaser, Pine Lakes Animal Hospital; Dr. Cathy Sheffield, Palm Coast Pet Clinic; Dr. Gary Shelton, Dr. Mandy Trotter, Dr. Jessica O’Conner, Shelton Veterinary Clinic; Dr. Robert Tate, Flagler Animal Hospital; Dr. Terri Rosado, Flagler Integrative Veterinary Center; and Dr. Cathy Brown, Dixie Commons Animal Hospital.

How can the community help? One way is to adopt the animals that are housed at the Humane Society. Families can also foster pets for a day, a week, a month. Donations are welcome. Residents can also attend Humane Society’s monthly events. The most important way to help, though, is to help stop the overpopulation. Spay and neuter. “We have an overabundance in this community because people allow their pets to breed,” Brose said. We do low-cost spayneutering. If it’s a pit bull or a pit mix, we do it for free. There is no excuse not to spay and neuter.” Visit www.FlaglerHumaneSociety.org for more or to subscribe to the monthly e-newsletter. Call 445-1814 and like the society on Facebook for updates.

A late-night fire at a Palm Coast home Thursday evening left one man hospitalized and six of his family members without a home. Witnesses reported hearing an explosion and then seeing smoke coming from the home. Investigators determined that a car battery had exploded after Peter Miroshnik, 55, had reportedly been working on the battery on the kitchen table. He was taken to the hospital for burns, and his family members, including three children, ages 2, 3 and 6, were taken to Florida Hospital Flagler for treatment of smoke inhalation. Five small marijuana plants were removed from the house. The Red Cross is assisting the family with its immediate needs.

TOWN CENTER / FROM PAGE 1 building currently open in Town Center (other than EPIC Theatres). “The city has to take the leadership and develop the catalyst — economic catalyst is what it’s all about. (The City Council needs to) exert that bold leadership.” Earlier this month, six former elected officials stood before the City Council and said now is the time to look at moving City Hall out of City Marketplace, the location the city currently rents for about $228,000 a year. The group of six asked the City Council to form a committee to look at the city’s options for a new home: rent, buy, build or stay put. The City Council at a July 16 workshop appeared divided as to whether it wanted to create that committee, and so officials directed staff to complete a financial analysis of City Hall options. That report is expected to be presented to the City Council at its July 30 workshop,

Long before Town Center was even built, the land had already been designed by ITT Corp. as the future center of Palm Coast, said David Lusby, vice president of Palm Coast Holdings Inc. Buying City Marketplace or building along Palm Coast Parkway would be a “huge mistake,” Lusby said. “But it’d be an even larger mistake 10 to 15 years from now,” he said. “A city without a heart is not a city. It’s just a community; it’s just a development.” City Hall could spark more retail and business development in Town Center, but it could also stimulate residential growth. Lusby said he has heard more rumblings of residential projects taking shape. “It’s picking up,” he said. Tom Grimes, general manager of Hilton Garden Inn Palm Coast/Town Center and a member of the Tourist Development Council, said he has a hard time answering questions when visitors ask where they can eat, shop and walk around in one

City Manager Jim Landon confirmed last week. But there will still be plenty of questions, he said. “We have no time frame,” Landon said, in regard to an actual City Hall. “This is not a project that City Council said we’re going to do, a far as the project itself. The only instructions I got was to bring back a financial analysis as far as rent vs. owning, and looking at the next five years from a financial standpoint.” Landon, who held several town hallstyle meetings in 2010 about a City Hall proposal, said the message he has heard from the community and City Council members is that if a City Hall is built, it should not be at the cost of residential taxpayers. “If it would require raising taxes on our residential taxpayers, then now is not the time to do it,” Landon said. But there are other options, he said. “If Town Center (landowners) want City Hall built in Town Center, then we need to look at having (them) pay for it,” he said.

Coffey said. Commissioners were challenged to decide which projects could be cut without overstretching the budget. For example, Commissioner Barbara Revels suggested waiting to implement a pretrial release program meant to moderate jail populations, but McLaughlin said that doing so would only increase the costs that would need to be swallowed in future years. The commission did not decide whether to cut the pretrial release program, or whether the cost-of-living salary increase should be set at 2.25% or 2.5%, but it was able to reach a consensus on its proposed rate increase. The commission will meet at 9 a.m. July 31 to set a tentative millage rate. Once that rate is set, the commission can lower it but cannot raise it. Email Megan Hoye at megan@palmcoastobserver.com.

only hire three. He also suggested decreasing the costof-living increase slightly. The originally proposed increase would give a 3% raise to employees, but instead, Coffey suggested giving a 2.5% or a 2.25% raise instead (an alternative would be giving a flat raise of $700 or $1,000 per employee, but that was criticized as being unfair to higher-earning employees). Finally, Coffey said, the county can use “one-time money” for one-time expenses, such as a new ambulance the county is slated to purchase in the next year. For example, the county only plans to receive 95% of its property taxes in its budgeting, and any money above that usually rolls into the county’s reserves. But by using that money to pay for one-time expenses, the county could hold its tax rate down,

er element to complement the vision that was established for the project,” he said, as he looked out of the window and toward Central Park. “The fact that the city already owns the property just makes total sense that this thing would be located within this area. For all of us, it would just mean the next piece of the puzzle.” Chiumento said the City Council needs to look at a long-term vision and commitment. “We deserve a downtown area that we can be proud of, and that’s what this is all about,” he said. “City Hall is the catalyst for developing a true downtown of Palm Coast.” The City Council will meet 9 a.m. July 30, at City Marketplace. City Hall discussions are expected to continue at that meeting, and Landon expects to deliver the financial analysis. “The ideal world would be to reduce the general tax dollars contributing to City Hall by not paying the rent,” he said. “Is that possible? We do not know now, but those are the kinds of questions that City Council has asked us to take a look at.”

location. He said he sends them to Flagler Beach, which isn’t a bad thing, but Town Center could be that destination. “Those are the kind of things that were envisioned for Town Center that would be perfect,” he said. Tony Amaral, of Amaral Custom Homes Inc., moved to Palm Coast with his family about 30 years ago. His company has built more than 2,800 homes in Palm Coast and Flagler County, he said. He also owns a parcel of land on Bulldog Drive and Central Avenue. “As we have grown, we have lost that center, and we have just become this big, open space, and I know when I get the question, ‘Where do I go here?’, you tell people to go all over and that’s why Town Center’s concept was a great idea,” Amaral said. “It was one location and you can park your car and do many activities.” Frank DeMarsh, of EPIC Theatres, said they built in Town Center because of the plan that was presented to him: Town Center would be Palm Coast’s downtown district. “I see City Hall being here as just anoth-

+ Why no coverage of Gov. Rick Scott’s visit to Flagler? Dear Editor: In recent years, the Palm Coast Observer has become an award-winning newspaper that Flagler County residents look forward to reading on Wednesdays and Saturdays. So, when a significant event takes place in our county on a Tuesday, and The Observer acknowledges it by telling people to go online to see an interview in its Saturday edition, I must register my strong disappointment. Here in Flagler, most people read The Observer in hard copy, not online. We want and expect The Observer to cover and report on newsworthy events, especially when given more than a month’s notice. On July 9, the Flagler Country Republican Executive Committee and the Republican Club of Palm Coast were successful in getting the governor of our state, Rick Scott, as our Lincoln Day Dinner keynote speaker to help Flagler County Republicans raise money and celebrate a major milestone — the fact that the county was one of only two in the state to switch from voting Democratic to Republican in the 2012 elections. Confounding us most is the fact that your organization signed the press signin sheet at the event, but wrote nothing! Is there some reason why our hometown newspaper left coverage to others, which interestingly noted that this was the fourth visit by Gov. Scott to Flagler County in two years, and correctly noted that “landing Scott” was a big deal and a remarkable turnaround for our Republican Party, whose leadership recently was in disarray. Flagler County’s Republican organizations are gearing up to play an increasingly active role in the 2014 elections, where 14 Republican national, state and local leaders will be on the ballot. We hope that

Here is how fans of the Palm Coast Observer Facebook page responded to posts in the past week:

On the story about a man who stole a credit card from a 94-year-old woman and was caught after charging $1.92: J Stephen Thompson Give him life! This is news? A BUCK .92! Shirley Sites Hartman Watch out for us old ladies! James Dean Fiske This is news? Yes, JST. It’s called breaking, entering and theft. On the march in support of Trayvon Martin:

Cindy Piper Why didn’t Martin call 9/11 on his cell phone? Orlando Fontanez The evidence presented by the court to a jury was consistent with self defense on Zimmerman’s part. Zimmerman is no angel, I agree. ... It is a shame that Trayvon could not speak in his own defense. Lori Cooke-Young At the moment this incident happened, he was walking to his father’s house with Skittles and iced

tea. He was doing nothing wrong at all. ... It should not matter at all what color anyone is. The fact still remains that a 17-year-old was walking home from the store ... and was shot by someone that by all security agencies should not have had a gun. The fact that he left the car with the gun that he was not supposed to have while patrolling the area should have been seen as premeditation. ... He chose to leave the car with the firearm, he chose to follow the kid. Why not just say “Hey! Neighborhood watch. Can I help you?”

print and finding the most appropriate medium for each story. We don’t see video coverage as an indication that an event is not important enough for print. In addition to the video story on Gov. Rick Scott, we have also recently produced video of the Palm Coast Yacht Club’s 30th anniversary celebration and the release of a rare sea turtle, which we felt were good subjects for video, as well. Follow us on Facebook for the videos and also check out the gray tab called “video” on www.PalmCoastObserver.com.

Editor’s Note: Thank you for your interest in having your event covered in the newspaper. We always take that as a positive sign. As we look to the future, we see our video coverage as an essential part of the Palm Coast Observer. We see it as an extension of the paper and a way to cover even more events than we would otherwise have room for in print. Moreover, we have started hearing organizations ask us for video coverage, rather than print coverage. So, we are trying to strike a balance between being comprehensive in

(2) If we have too many schools for the number of students, close some of them. (3) If our School Board and administrators can’t determine if we can meet the state class size requirements, they should all be replaced. Can’t we hire a consultant for a month to determine that with 100% certainty? (4) If we have too many elective social classes that are serving only a few students, they should be dropped or subsidized by the parents. (5) If we have too many non-teaching and direct support personnel, get rid of them. The operation of our schools must be done on a business-like basis. The objective of the School Board and administration should be to educate our students, not to maintain an over balanced administration. Jesse Stoner Palm Coast

think that our students should be taught whatever subjects are deemed necessary by anyone who has a favorite topic. They seem to think that money is forthcoming for any pet project and for unlimited personnel. Well, I see the education of our students as a business, which should be run as a business. I worked in industry for 50 years as an engineer designing, building and using special assembly machinery. These machines ranged in cost from $50,000 to $30 million. When we quoted this machinery to a prospective customer, it was very clearly described and defined. Our customer then gave us a purchase order for the agreed upon amount. When we started building the machine, there was no going back to the well for more money. We had to do the job for the amount we said we would do it for! And, we had to make sure we did the job. Also, we had to make sure the machine we provided did its job. The contract was between the machinery vendor and the customer. I see the operation of a school district to be no different. We hire (make a contract with) the board members to do a job for a certain salary and a certain budget. If they don’t do it, the contract should be canceled, and they should be replaced. Now: (1) The 45 minutes cut from the class time should be reinstated, and another hour or two added! If our School Board can’t find the time or money to do it, I suggest replacing them immediately and finding someone who can.

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT Advanced Hearing Centers of America announces unique hearing aid trial program, with NO upfront cost, NO commitment and NO risk Who is a good candidate for Flex:trial?

Area residents who want to try today’s most advanced hearing aids — without upfront cost, commitment or risk — are urged to get in touch with Advanced Hearing Centers of America.

1 TRY IT

RISK-FREE

Located in Palm Coast, Advanced Hearing Centers of America is among a handful of hearing healthcare providers nationwide selected and certified to participate in the Flex:trial™ program, developed by hearing aid manufacturer Unitron.

2

You may be a good candidate for the Flex:trial program if you:

Flex:trial uses a unique three-step approach to hearing healthcare and consumer satisfaction:

• Suspect a hearing loss but haven’t had your hearing tested

1. Interested individuals undergo a hearing test. If the testing indicates a good fit for the program, participants go home — the very same day* — with Flex:trial hearing aids.

WEAR IT

• Had a hearing test but decided against hearing aids • Currently wear hearing aids but are looking for something better The Flex:trial program is accepting appointments from potential participants July 31st through August 9th only. Supplies of the Flex:trial hearing aids are limited, call today.

2. Participants wear the Flex:trial hearing aids on a trial basis at home and in all of their other familiar environments. There is no upfront cost or obligation during the trial period. 3. At the end of the trial period, participants decide whether they want to continue with the listening experience…or walk away and owe nothing. “Other trial programs require consumers to pay for the hearing aids in advance and then go through the process of getting a refund if they’re not satisfied. But the Flex:trial program eliminates the upfront cost for participating patients — and the fear of getting stuck with hearing aids they don’t like. The risk is all ours.”

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 7 get 104,000 miles on my front brakes and 117,000 on the rears. Oh, by the way, the same goes for the tires. I also never got a speeding ticket and never had an accident in 48 years of driving. Most of the people who fly past me end up waiting at the red light. By the time I get there, the light turns green and I pass them, never having used my brakes. As one reader said: Life is too short; slow down and enjoy it! On another note, my wife and I often drive to Flagler Beach in the afternoon to walk by the beach and have a snack at a local eatery. We usually park on Second Street by the museum. The last three times we were there, we noticed three parking stalls designated for half-hour parking only. All were empty on each visit. I don’t know any activity that can be done in half an hour, as it takes 10 minutes to cross A1A, five minutes each direction. The fact that those parking spaces are empty for each visit leads me to believe this was a mistake on someone’s part. Anthony Sciotto Palm Coast

mation on this tragic death, they stated that, at the time, the nearest office was in Jacksonville. When I called Jacksonville, they stated that the officer covering that would call me back, which he never did. I understand that the nearest office to Palm Coast is now in Palatka. So what is the point of all these cameras, except to make money? The fine is atrocious, and I understand if one tries to take it to court, one better have a lawyer. I see those cameras flash many times when no car is involved, so how do we know that those cameras don’t flash at cars that are really not breaking the law? How do those cameras know who is driving? Also, those cameras do not help Palm Coast’s reputation. As far as I am concerned, those cameras will not stop a seriously speeding car that runs a red light. At most, they will increase the likelihood of being rear-ended. I say, let’s get rid of them. Daniel Bowman Palm Coast Editor’s Note: Every time a camera flashes, the violation is reviewed by American Traffic Solutions. If ATS perceives that the violation warrants a citation and fine, video is sent to the city of Palm Coast for a second review.

+ Cameras do not stop people from running red lights + Take a stand and tell the Dear Editor: sheriff to enforce the laws It has been almost six years since my daughter-in-law’s mother was killed by a hit-and-run driver during the afternoon in a church parking lot here in Palm Coast. People ask me how this relates to red light cameras. What is the purpose of these cameras? To make money, of course. Do they inhibit people from speeding or deliberately running a red light? Of course not. As far as deaths by or in cars, this is covered by the highway patrol, and even they don’t do a good job. In the case I mentioned above, when I contacted the local police, they stated they weren’t responsible. When I contacted the highway patrol to get more infor-

After all, we pay for this service and deserve a higher quality of service from his department. Douglas Toth Palm Coast — Send letters to editor@palmcoastobserver.com.

“Some hospitals

ship out patients.

We receive them.” - Donald Stoner, MD Chief Medical Officer, Halifax Health

Chief Medical Officers, like Dr. Donald Stoner, only want to lead medical teams that can handle even the toughest cases. “Just because a physician has worked at another medical center does not mean she or he is qualified to work here,” says Dr. Stoner. “We have an Ongoing Professional Practitioner Evaluation system, supported by the National Center for Medical Services, which means our physicians always have to meet the highest standards of practicing medicine. We’re qualified to take the most complicated cases, even when other hospitals can’t solve the problem. Above all, everyone here must put the needs of every patient first. If they can’t do that they’ll be working somewhere else down the road.”

CORNER

11:12 a.m. at the First Block of Undermount Path West. Vandalism. The victim stated that someone had punctured holes in all four of his company’s vehicle. Upon further investigation, four .25- and one .22-caliber spent shell casings were found in front of the home. Later on, the deputy stopped at a neighbor’s home to ask about anything suspicious that occurred the night before. The neighbor stated that his neighbors had a small party with about 15-20 people, and between 11 p.m. and 12:30 a.m., he heard what could have been either fireworks or gunshots, but he was not sure.

Running people over makes me hungry! 9:19 p.m. at the 1500 Block of Palm Coast Parkway Northeast. Hit and run. After a call-in reference to a crash, a deputy responded to a gas station after an incident of a vehicle being hit while its owner was pumping gas, and was pushed into the cement base of the pump by his large black sedan. When an employee of the station was asked about the identification of the suspect, the worker shared her first name only. The black sedan sped away from the scene shortly after the incident. While discussing the incident with the deputy, the victim received a phone call from a relative about the black sedan. The vehicle was later found in a driveway with the engine running. Inside the residence, the deputy confronted the suspect while the suspect was eating dinner, and she was then detained and transported to jail.

Point Parkway. Larceny Shoplifting. While shopping at a local business, a woman was witnessed taking UPC codes off cheaper items and placing them onto expensive objects. After this, she placed more items into her purse and proceeded to the checkout where she paid for the items with the switched UPC codes. Once she finished with the transaction, the business’s loss prevention officer pursued her. She attempted to deprive the store of their product at a total cost of $86.58.

July 15 Getting some shut-eye at a red light 6:16 p.m. at State Road 100 and Town Center Boulevard. DUI. While on patrol, a deputy noticed a silver hatchback stopped at a traffic light. After stopping at a car wash, the deputy traveled back through the same intersection, and the same car was still in the exact same spot, and had not moved since. He then pulled over and approached the vehicle to make sure the occupant was all right. Once the deputy arrived at the front of the vehicle, the driver appeared to be sleeping with the window half open and the radio on very low. The driver, who was the only occupant of the vehicle, was observed with his head rested against the driver’s door window, his right hand on the shifter, which was in drive, the other hand on the wheel, one foot on the brake, and the other foot with no sock or shoe resting beside the brake pedal. After minutes of jostling, the occupant finally woke up, and said “Thanks, man, I’m good,” and hit the gas pedal, which jolted the car forward through a red light. When the deputy finally re-approached the vehicle, the driver seemed confused. After instruction on how to stop the car, the man was ordered to exit the vehicle. He was asked to do a field sobriety test but refused. He was transported to jail.

But members of Flagler Falcons PAL football know getting good grades in school is fun, too. And for making the grade, a group of 19 football players were given a free pair of cleats Friday from the Gilyard Group Foundation. Mardy Gilyard, former standout football player at Flagler Palm Coast High School and now a wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs, was in town to deliver the fresh kicks to the players who achieved high scholastic honors for the 2012-2013

This marks the third year in a row the Gilyard Group Foundation has given student-athletes a pair of clears for success in the classroom. “This recognition proves to them at a young age that school is the foundation they will build their lives upon,” said Summer Kleinfelder, scholastic coordinator for Flagler PAL/Pop Warner. “Hopefully they will choose to embrace their academic achievement and do great things in their lives.” The recipients are as follows: Sebastian Azevedo, Hayden Buckley, Andrew Butler, Kaleb Christensen, Austin Cochran, Jaylen Collins, Julian Del Castillo, Antonio Kes, Jacob Laura, Jyrius Lawrence, Jemon Little, Ryan Marsh, Jacob Miley, Jackson Norman, Victor Paci, Patrick Pilachowski, Sean Snyder, Cain Taylor and Kaevon Washington.

A dozen years after meeting in a jewelry store, Randy and Kimberly Rosenbalm share faith, family — and a kidney.

Randy and Kimberly Rosenbalm

O

A jewel and a first kidney

She then relocated to Morristown, Tenn. That’s when she was able to visit a mall with her family on one December day in 2001, when she bought her ring. The man who sized it, the now 32-year-old Randy Rosenbalm, was a pastor working at the jewelry store part time. He was a friend of Kimberly’s family. When he was informed of her illness, he took her hand. He prayed that wheelchairbound Kimberly would find a kidney for the transplant she needed. The two then parted ways — for the time being. And perhaps the prayers were answered. After dialysis and chemotherapy treatments, Kimberly had found a transplant match. “The Lord pulled me through it,” she said. “The doctors gave up on me a long time ago.”

‘‘

The Lord pulled me through it. The doctors gave up on me a long time ago.

‘‘

n Christmas Eve in 2001, an ill young woman visited a jewelry store in Tennessee with her family to pick out a blue topaz ring. Little did she know that the man who sized that ring would become her husband and fellow pastor in a town called Palm Coast, Fla., 12 years later. The young woman was Kimberly. The now 35-year-old was born in Washington, N.C., to a churchgoing Pentecostal family. Upon graduating high school, she attended Beaufort Community College and went on to become a hair stylist. But her plans were put on hold when a series of unfortunate events befell her. In January 2000, she was hospitalized for flu-like symptoms, which later turned out to be thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, or TTP. The disease, which doctors attributed to bacteria from the floods of Hurricane Floyd, is a blood disorder that affects the platelets and damages organs. The illness hit her with full force. Her kidneys were failing and her liver was shutting down. Her entire body was hemorrhaging. “They did not think I was going to live,” she said. “I didn’t have any platelet count.” To combat the disease, doctors proceeded to perform a plasma exchange, which meant giving Kimberly transplanted platelets. But she relapsed.

Elizabeth Brown

Kimberly Rosenbalm

Meet the Rosenbalms: Annastey, Kimberly and Randy In 2003, her mother donated Kimberly her first kidney. Though things were looking a bit brighter afterward, darkness fell once again. After Kimberly received a kidney biopsy, the doctor’s needle punctured her kidney’s main artery. It began shutting down. She needed a second transplant.

A familiar face

As she waited for a new match in 2007, she crossed paths with a familiar face, Randy, at church. Randy, who was born and raised near Pigeon Forge, Tenn., did not grow up in a religious household. After completing high school studies, he attended community college and was later enrolled in physical therapy school. During his time in college, he experimented with marijuana and cocaine and at times, he dealt drugs on the side. He said he was “anti-church.” “I was out to prove that religion was a thing of the past,” he said.

But after some of his religious friends convinced him to attend a church drama about the crucifixion, Randy says he was “saved.” After four weeks, he dropped out of the physical therapy program. He decided to pursue a bachelor’s degree in pastoral and Biblical studies from Lee University in Cleveland, Tenn. He married for the first time in 2003. His daughter, 8-year-old Annastey, was born while Randy was a director for pastoral students at a master’s commission in Baltimore. He then went to work as a youth director in North Dakota, but moved back to Tennessee in 2007 after his first wife had an affair and left him and their daughter. That’s where he reconnected with Kimberly.

A perfect match

After going to church and Bible study together, the two began dating. In 2008, they married.

Courtesy photo

But the fact that Kimberly needed another kidney still loomed. Fortunately, Randy was a perfect donor match. On their oneyear anniversary, he gave his wife the ultimate present — his life-saving left kidney. “I was a closer match than a blood relative,” he said. Soon after, the couple decided to work in ministry full time. They moved to Waycross, Ga., to work as associate pastors for two years. But Randy wanted to start his own church, despite his wife’s hesitation. “You have no support, you don’t know anybody,” he said. “You start from scratch.” The couple decided to search for a new location. After driving through Palm Coast, they found their new town. “We moved to Florida because of the spiritual climate of Palm Coast,” he said. The family moved here in August 2012. Randy now works at

Lowe’s and is a carpenter in addition to his pastoral ministry. He and his wife started Refuge Church and held their first official service on May 5 in a Days Inn conference room. Since then, they have acquired 30 members, with about 12 volunteers assisting their mission.

Grace and healing

The church focuses on helping people in need, whether it is those struggling with addictions or single parents in tough times, and they will hold a healing service at 6 p.m. July 28, at the Days Inn in Palm Coast. Visit www.refugechurchfl.com. And if anyone knows about the healing process, it’s Kimberly. You would never guess this cheery, bright-eyed woman had ever endured surgeries and two kidney transplants. “Everything just fell into place for us,” Kimberly said. “It made us stronger. We’re happy. I’m proud to be alive.” Her husband agreed. “She’s a walking miracle,” he said.

HEY, GOOD LOOKIN’ By Megan Hoye | Staff Writer

Keep the legend alive: Locals host Hank Williams show Ed Guy and Chris Lash are on a mission, starting with a Hank Williams show at Flagler Playhouse in August. Ed Guy and Chris Lash are going Hankin’. By that, they mean they are on a quest to know more about country music legend Hank Williams’ life. It may have been 60 years since Williams died, but to many — Guy and Lash included — his music remains alive. “Hank Williams transcends time, because you can hear the pain in his voice,” Lash said over an old recording of one of Williams’ radio shows. “That’s how people relate. They say, ‘This guy is living what I’m going through.’” Guy nodded his head from across the room. “He really made peoples’ lives more bearable,” Guy said. “He summed it up. People cried when they heard his music; in fact, he cried during some of his own performances.” The two men met and bonded over a mutual love for Williams several months ago and quickly began making plans to go Hankin’. This autumn, they will be traveling to Louisiana to meet and interview Williams’ second wife. In the meantime, they are working to produce a tribute to Williams’ life at the Flagler Playhouse next month. The show will feature one of the top Hank Williams tribute performers as well as a selection of Williams memorabilia to view and purchase. “It’s not a concert,” Lash said. “It’s a show.” Jason Petty, who won an Obie

award for his performance as Williams, will be performing songs and telling Williams’ life story at the show, which will run twice on Aug. 3. Memorabilia will come from Guy’s private collection, which he acquired throughout his career. Although he donated much of it to various museums when he retired, he still has a large collection in his home. Guy has boxes of vinyl and stacks of CDs. He has tour posters, recordings from Williams’ radio show and old photographs. He was instrumental in tracking down some of the only video footage of Williams at a live performance (“You just have to know the right people and then pester them until you convince them it’s for the best to release their material,” Guy said). His merchandizing endeavors led him to start his mail-order business, Hank Williams Collectables. He sold memorabilia to people across the country for years, relying on word of mouth and his extensive music industry network for advertising. Lash, who owned publications and still owns radio stations, just launched a new magazine, County Music Legends, which will complement his work with Guy. The quarterly magazine will feature information about old country as well as contemporary artists. Its first issue printed June 1, and it opened with a story written by Guy about Williams. But now that they have met,

Megan Hoye

Ed Guy and Chris Lash always have some sort of music playing — usually country — but Hank Williams is among their top picks. the two want to start Guy’s business again — this time, with a website at www.hankwilliamscollectables.com. In addition, the two hope to host shows similar to the one they are holding in Palm Coast throughout the country. They

also want to create a television show to document their efforts. “People still care about Williams, after all this time,” Lash said. “He’s still relevant — that’s the sign of a true artist.” The show, “Hank Williams and My Honky Tonk Heroes,” will

play at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Aug. 3. Tickets cost $30, and are available at the Flagler Playhouse box office or by calling 586-0773. For more about Hank Williams Collectables or the show, contact Lash at 724- 516-8885 or fishfm1@hotmail.com.

When Daniel Holland first received the call telling him he had won a new Chevrolet Silverado, he thought it was a scam, so he hung up. The second time the call came, he began to believe it. Holland, of Palm Coast, was named winner of WFTV’s Race into Summer sweepstakes, held in conjunctions with the Chevrolet dealers of Central Florida. People could enter to win at any participating dealer in the region or by mailing in a post card. Holland was randomly selected as the winner. He was presented with his new truck on Tuesday at Tom Gibbs Chevrolet, in Palm Coast. “I wasn’t really expecting something like this to happen,” Holland said. “It doesn’t feel real.”
