Palm Coast to increase staff as building activity increases

‘‘

I don’t want to not hire people and then have people say, ‘You’re holding us up.’

OUR TOWN

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2014

Jon Netts, mayor

A projected $200,000 deficit became a $100,000 surplus. In the four Januaries from 2010 to 2013, a combined 45 permits for single-family homes were issued by the city of Palm Coast. Last month topped them all. “In January 2014, it was 46,” City Manager Jim Landon told the City Council last week. “It’s a new world downstairs,” he said. “You can really tell a difference.” As a result of the increased activity, the city is adding staff.

“We hired a zoning technician who is responsible for plan review because a couple of months ago, that was the word we got from the builders — that our zoning review was a bottleneck — and we agreed with that assessment,” Landon said in an interview with the Palm Coast Observer. The city will also hire an inspector. The hiring comes after a discussion with City Council last

month, when Landon said, “I’m in conversations about staffing levels, because we are not where we need to be to get this done.” Landon told the City Council, “We only have three inspectors, so we’re pulling people off plan review … so the plan review isn’t getting done. … We’re evaluating. It’s a good problem to have.” Community Development

KNIGHTS IN SHINING ARMOR

Valentine’s dance benefits kidney patient The dance raised funds for Palm Coast residents Charles and Kathy Papson’s granddaughter. Charles and Kathy Papson have been Palm Coast residents for 10 years, and during all that time, they have volunteered in the community. So when their friends at the Knights of Columbus heard about their granddaughter Brittany being sick, they wanted to do something to help out.

Brittany Papson, 19, is in kidney failure. She has been hospitalized more than 17 times in the past year due to infections. “They discovered that she’s had an abnormal kidney her whole life — that it was nonfunctioning,” said Kathy Papson as she sat at a table at the Knights of Columbus on Saturday night.

A Valentine’s Day centerpiece sat in the center of the table. “So the kidney that was good got infected badly, and, eventually, they took out the kidney in preparation for a transplant.” But the fight isn’t over yet. Papson and her parents traveled from their home in Georgia this week to Mayo Clinic, in Jack-

sonville, which will be Papson’s transplant center. While there, the Papson family hopes Brittany will be added to the transplant list — she can’t be on the list until she takes this week of physical and psychological tests. Those hopes are what brought

+ Rotary breaks ground on Bunnell sports fields A ground-breaking ceremony took place Thursday, Feb. 5, for the Rotary Club of Flagler Beach’s multisports field complex being built adjacent to the Carver Center, in Bunnell. Rotary Club of Flagler Beach is working closely with the city of Bunnell, the George Washington Carver Foundation and additional community partners to construct the fields.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2014

The project is scheduled for completion in the spring. “This is not just a project about sports fields,” said Roseanne Stocker, service and grant committee chairperson for Rotary Club of Flagler Beach. “This is about changing lives, providing positive influences and teaching about leadership and character through organized sports for children in the community.” The Rotary Sports Field Project is a $52,600 project funded by a $24,600 grant from Rotary District 6970

and Rotary International. The remaining $32,000 is being raised from donations from local community partners, including Rotary Club of Palm Coast and Rotary Club of Flagler County. Partnerships are still being sought from local businesses and organizations that wish to help. The goal of this project is to bring organized sports leagues to the neighborhood surrounding the Carver Center. Funds are being raised to provide scholarships for children in need who wish to participate.

world war ii By Jonathan Simmons | News Editor

Seventy years later, local veterans meet for first time

Les DeWeerdt and Bob Marple both fought in the Battle of the Bulge. They met in Flagler Beach.

Flagler County residents Les DeWeerdt and Bob Marple didn’t know each other before Tuesday, but they’d come close, in a European battle zone almost 70 years ago. “I flew over him,” said Marple, a 91-yearold retired Army Air Corps lieutenant who piloted P-51 Mustangs in the Battle of the Bulge in World War II. “I was in reconnaissance for Gen. Patton.” DeWeerdt, now 88, fought in the battle as a private in Patton’s Third Army. The two men met for the first time Tuesday at the Funky Pelican restaurant at the Flagler Beach Pier after Dennis Kemper, assistant general manager and Air Force veteran, who knew both men, suggested they get together. DeWeerdt and Marple came with their wives and showed up wearing memorial service hats: DeWeerdt’s custom-embroidered with the word “Nuts,” the defiant response uttered by besieged American Cmdr. Tony McAuliffe when German forces requested his surrender at Bastogne. Marple’s hat was pinned with four red poppies. “These are for the four roommates that I lost during the war: Pete, Joe, Alan and Michael,” he said. “That keeps me pretty humble.” The Battle of the Bulge was one of the largest and bloodiest of the war. About 500,000 American soldiers fought in the battle, and about 19,000 died. DeWeerdt was on the ground with an anti-aircraft artillery battalion when the German army launched an offensive in the Ardennes region, starting the battle. Patton rerouted the Third Army divisions north to help besieged American troops, including the 101st Airborne in Bastogne. “We were heading east, and we needed to be heading north, toward Belgium,” DeWeerdt said.

World War II veteran Les DeWeerdt’s hat is embroidered with the word “Nuts,” the defiant response uttered by besieged American Cmdr. Tony McAuliffe when German forces requested his surrender. The poppies on Bob Marple’s hat, at right, memorialize four friends killed in the war. Marple’s air squadron was searching for the 101st from the air. “The role was, first, to find where the 101st Airborne was,” he said. “My squadron leader found them. Then they were able to drop them supplies, so they didn’t run out of food, didn’t run out of ammunition.” Marple says he flew 68 missions and 100 sorties, but he thinks of it as 82 missions. “All I know is I flew over 82 times when they could shoot at me,” he said. The Mustang, a reconnaissance plane, flew without its guns fully loaded, so it wasn’t always easy to shoot back. After the battle, DeWeerdt was promoted to the rank of private first class, and Mar-

ple receieved an Air Medal with 10 oak leaf clusters. Both men left the service after the war, and they went to college. Marple studied chemical engineering at Drexel College, now Drexel University, and worked for the Rohm and Haas chemical company for 35 years. He lives in Palm Coast with his wife, Margaret. DeWeerdt went to Albany State Teachers College, and then taught sociology until his retirement in 1980. Then he got on his sailboat and took off, living on the boat, an Endeavor 37, from 1984 to 1996 in Marineland with his wife, Jonni. They live together in Daytona North. jonathan@palmcoastobserver.com

+ Airport lands new company’s headquarters

A high-tech company incorporated in Alabama is moving its headquarters to the Flagler County Airport. Technology By Design Partners LLC manages Internet technology infrastructures, specializing in forming IT infra-

structures for smaller companies of up to 75 employees. It will move into an airport hangar with Mill’s Blue Sky Yakrobatics. TBD was founded in 2009 and accumulated about $8 million in revenue in its first three years. The company is owned by a married couple, Bill and Kimberly Mills, and has 11 employees in three states.

MITIGATION ‘SHELL GAME’

A 32-mile stretch of U.S. 1 is currently in upheaval due to two construction projects set to complete later this year. Work to resurface, improve drainage and add shoulders to U.S. 1, from the Volusia County line to Black Branch bridge, just south of Bunnell, is currently being contracted by the Florida Department of Transportation to P&S Paving Inc., according

to FDOT spokeswoman Jessica Keane. Both projects combine for a total cost of $8.33 million and are expected to complete by this fall. For about four months, the road from Black Branch bridge to the White Eagle Lounge, at 5530 U.S. 1, will become a one-way route, switching one lane each way northbound and southbound, until resurfacing is complete.

Seminole Woods fire caused by clipped wire A crew from the city of Palm Coast accidentally clipped a power line that was about 20 feet in the air with a track hoe in the late morning of Feb. 10, and the live wire caused a brush fire that killed power to the adjacent water plant and closed down Seminole Woods Boulevard from State Road 100 to Utah Place. According to Flagler County Fire Chief Don Petito, the water plant had power supplied from a different source, so wasn’t any interruption. Overhead, it was plain to see: There were four wires crossing Seminole Woods Boulevard from the west to the east. At the pole, only three continued east. The crews were working on the construction of a 10-foot-wide multiuse path along the east side of Seminole Woods Boulevard from State Road 100 to the southern intersection of Ulaturn Trail. The section is a little over a mile long. Will Raulerson, a forest area supervisor for the Florida Forestry Service, said crews burned out a section that he estimated to be less than 1.5 acres, to make sure the fire didn’t get out of control. Enormous plumes of smoke billowed over the street as a thick layer of underbrush caught fire. No structures were threatened. Raulerson had a torch with him, filled with a mixture of three parts diesel fuel and one part gasoline, which was used to burn the brush. “This area probably ain’t seen fire in 40 or 50 years,” he said. editor@palmcoastobserver.com will be to add thermoplastic striping to the entire roadway, as well as two-foot shoulders on the inside medians, from State Road 100 to the St. Johns County line.

Bulow Creek site to house up to 70 tortoises? The Flagler County Board of County Commissioners will vote on a conservation easement at its Feb. 17 meeting. A site at the headwaters of Bulow Creek, south of State Road 100 and east of Old Kings Road, might become a haven for threatened gopher tortoises from all over Florida, if the Flagler County Commission authorizes a conservation easement for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to protect the critters. The issue is part of a consent agenda for the commission’s Monday, Feb. 17 meeting. If it’s approved, the site within the park could hold up to 70 tortoises, Flagler County Environmental Planner Tim Telfer said. “They essentially can come from anywhere within Florida,” he said in an email.

“Any relocations to this site must be approved by Flagler County and permitted by the FWC.” Tortoises would be relocated to the site after being moved from areas where they’re threatened by development. Before they’re moved, they’ll be checked for infectious diseases, Telfer said, and because tortoises tend to wander home when they’re relocated, the incoming tortoises would have to be held in a screen enclosure on the site for months until they build a burrow. “Without this temporary enclosure, gopher tortoises have an amazing ability to find their way home via some type of not-yet-under-

stood ‘internal GPS,’” Telfer said. “The ‘soft enclosure’ is necessary and required to acclimate them to their new home.” The Bulow Park site already has a gopher tortoise population, and the easement will help maintain a healthy tortoise population within the county, Telfer said. Most gopher tortoise relocation sites are in South Florida. The easement would require the county to follow a land management plan typical for pine flatwoods areas, but the requirements for managing fire and vegetation are ones the county would be following even without a conservation easement, Telfer said.

Gopher tortoises prefer dry areas like pine flatwoods.

STAFF / FROM PAGE 1 Director Nestor Abreu said that, in 2011, the staff was conducting about 40 inspections per day. Now, the average is 70-110. “The numbers reflect more work, more permitting, more inspections,” Abreu said. “Because of these trends, we’re looking to get more help.”

What is the right size for the staff in the building department? Mayor Jon Netts said to the City Council earlier this month: “Let’s take a look at the historical perspective. During the peak of the building boom, I think we had 20 people in the building inspection department, and we were barely keeping pace. As the recession comes in, you adjust the staff so you’re not having people sitting around. We’ve reached the point where we’re seeing an increase in building, and that’s good. And you can’t ask the same staff to do twice as much work as people are doing.” He continued: “I don’t want to hire people and having them sitting around. Conversely, I don’t want to not hire people and then have people say, ‘You’re holding us up.’ This is where the city manager has to be very astute. “It’s a balancing act. You don’t want to spend money needlessly, but on the other hand, you don’t want to inconvenience the people who are investing capital dollars in your community. It’s a nice problem to have. I’d much rather have to hire two building inspectors than to have to lay off two building inspectors. Netts gave a personal example about buying a couch. “We might talk about it for nine months, but when we decide to do it, we want to buy it tomorrow. That’s the same with the buildings.”

LITTLE CHEFS

The number of permits issued by the city of Palm Coast for single-family residential homes has been a story of dramatic ups and downs, from a high of 3,950 in 2004 to a low of 81 in 2011. This year, the rebound continues.

Year Permits 2014*.................... 46 2013................... 263 2012................... 155 2011..................... 81 2010................... 113 2009................... 124 2008................... 166 2007................... 396 2006................ 1,229 2005................ 3,015 2004................ 3,950 *Through January 2014.

90 people to the Valentine’s Day-themed dinner dance. “Everyone has been extremely generous, and everyone has supported us,” Kathy Papson said. “This is a wonderful community.” Funds raised from the dance will be donated into a medical trust fund in Brittany’s name. But the Knights of Columbus, where Kathy Papson is the banquet manager, is not the only organization stepping up. Upon hearing about Charles and Kathy’s granddaughter, friends at the Veterans of Foreign Wars, where Kathy is a member of the ladies auxiliary, planned a dinner fundraiser as well. The Baked Ziti Dinner fundraiser in Papson’s honor will be held March 2, with doors opening at 5 p.m. and dinner served at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10.

A $300,000 turnaround

In the budget for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1, 2013, the city projected it would need to dip into Building Department reserves about $200,000. Instead, because of the increase in activity, the reserves were augmented by $100,000. “And that surplus could continue to grow,” said Chris Quinn, finance director. “If we ended the year today, it’s a difference of $300,000.” State law prohibits the use of the revenue from building permits for anything other than supporting the department. For example, the surplus could not be used to lower property taxes or build a park. The city has about $2 million in its building permit reserves. Half of that is set aside to fund the construction of the building department portion of the new City Hall in Town Center.

The Flagler County Chamber of Commerce formally installed its chairman and board of directors, as well as honored outstanding members, in a Friday evening ceremony at the Hammock Beach Resort, attended by about 250 people. Alliance Financial Partners President David Fowler was installed as the chamber’s chairman, replacing 2013 chairman Scott Sowers. Fowler said he expects the local economy to continue improving. For many local builders and real estate agents, he said, 2013 was a huge year. “This is a trend we think will continue in 2014,” he said. Fowler said the chamber is also planning a more active role in local politics. “With the promotion of Gretchen Smith to government affairs director, the committee advocates on behalf of all members and identifies ways to increase engagement,” he said. Fowler said he expects the chamber to be involved in several candidate forums this year. Fowler, a Palm Coast resident, joined the chamber’s board of directors in 2010 and is a member of the Flagler Homebuilders Association. He also serves on the board for Flagler Habitat for Humanity. Chamber President Rebecca DeLorenzo said the chamber has evolved this past year and will continue evolving this year. “We are in a continual process of reinventing ourselves,” she said. “We have to deliver a different kind of value than we have in the past.” The chamber recently reorganized, creating area councils to replace its affiliate chambers in Bunnell, Palm Coast, Flagler

KEEP UP THE FIGHT, PIERRE

By Brian McMillan | Executive Editor

To a brother from another website I first met Pierre Tristam at a rally for the Flagler County Tea Party. I like the irony of that sentence. I didn’t appreciate the irony at the time because it was 2010, and I was new in town. Pierre launched FlaglerLive.com nearly at the same time that the Palm Coast Observer began publishing. I didn’t know then that Pierre was a former Daytona Beach NewsBRIAN MCMILLAN Journal reporter and editorial writer, and that he had political leanings that, shall we say, clashed with the Tea Party. But in that first encounter, and in all others, I came away respecting Pierre for his intellectual vitality, the breadth of his interests and research, his unparalleled work ethic and his fierce defense of the

freedom of the press. I have also come to respect and admire his wife, Cheryl, who is the fearless leader of the Flagler Youth Orchestra. (Coincidentally, I wrote a column about her almost exactly one year ago, on Feb. 14, 2013.) He is a man who seems to know everyone and be everywhere at once, from car crashes to fires to government meetings to art openings. His stories catch the attention of influential people all over the county, some of whom claim not to read his site but still seem to know what it says. If you get to know him personally, you can also see that above all, he is a loving husband and father. And it’s that role that causes the most heartache surrounding his most shocking article ever on FlaglerLive.com: “The Diagnosis.” For those who haven’t heard, Pierre has been diagnosed with cancer. Check out the story on his site for the details. I commend him for writing about it in such an honest way. He’s in a unique position to help others who might feel afraid or alone because

of cancer. I hope he’s willing to continue giving us all updates on how he’s doing. A month ago, after appearing on WNZF with David Ayres, Pierre and I spent an hour in the parking lot swapping recommendations on novels that we had been reading. In the next couple of days, we kept the conversation going via email. Since then, I had read “The Diagnosis,” but I hadn’t seen him. Then, on Monday, we crossed paths again, this time at the fire off Seminole Woods Boulevard. We waved from across the median as we interviewed different fire officials and took pictures of the smoke that ballooned menacingly over the city. We left at different times and didn’t exchange any words. But it was comforting to see him there, to feel that pressure, like always, to race back to the office to post my photos and see who could break the news first. Keep up the fight, Pierre. We’re here to support you and your family all the way to recovery. If anyone has the will power to beat cancer, it’s you.

LETTERS EDITOR TO THE

+ Sheriff got some things wrong in ‘business’ editorial Dear Editor: The Flagler sheriff seems to have left a few thing out when he proposed that government be run like a business. First of all, he would have to pay women less than he pays his male employees because that’s what business does, right? Then, he’d have to pay the rest of his employees so little that workers would have to chip in to buy turkeys for the neediest among them. Of course, he’d want to fight to the death rather than let employees have a say at the bargaining table for wages, benefits and working conditions. They should be grateful they have a job. This is the Big Daddy form of corporate enlightenment. Then there’s the one where corporations buy up other businesses, sell off their assets, get them into debt and then dump them, taking home crates full of cash for the stockholders and leaving a town full of unemployed behind. Finally, unlike government, corporate employees don’t have the right to vote their leaders out, no matter how badly they’re treated. But there is one rule in business that seems to elude government: They don’t let their employees drive the company car on vacations, claiming they’re still on company time. Victor Washkevich Palm Coast

+ Island Walk shows promise; let’s get it right Dear Editor: It has been clear for some time that our beloved shopping center has been declining and is now in need of redevelopment. This is something we can all agree on. For many years, it has been the symbol of the original planned design of Palm Coast, and how commercial development can be enhanced by green canopy. It is the reason many of us moved here; it was our first impression of Palm Coast. It has also been clear in the past 10 to 15 years that the owners had no interest in maintaining it, not even with a fresh paint job. Instead, they’ve chosen to raise rents there, forcing most of its tenants out. Talk to the remaining tenants, and they’ll tell you that rents there are among the highest in Palm Coast. And now, it is becoming home to the homeless. At the City Council meeting Feb. 4, we were told it is the owners’ responsibility to keep it up, yet it’s clear that hasn’t happened here. Why not? It’s been years since it’s been painted, and the drainage ponds are full of trash. Why hasn’t the city been after the owners to clean it up? When our neighborhoods are being patrolled, and owners cited, why

WOUNDED WARRIORGATE

+ Live in gated community, play by all the rules Dear Editor: The recent uproar against Grand Haven is, in my opinion, a bit misplaced. There are literally thousands of deserving charities that one can unfurl a flag to support, and once you open it up to any one particular charity, no matter how worthy, it never ends. I support veteran issues and efforts to assist those in need — especially our wounded warriors — but rules and regulations are enacted to be followed. Those who choose to reside in homeowners-association communities know fully well what is permitted and what is not. HOAs come in many varieties, including some that rule in a dictatorial and punitive manner and, for that reason, many people decide not to live in such restrictive communities. For the individual who has been fined $1,000 for hanging a Wounded Warrior flag and is now contemplating legal action, that money would have been better spent being donated to a charity for wounded warriors. The problem here is not Grand Haven but our own government for failing to adequately care for those who they put in harms way. It shames me as a former Army officer at the plight and neglect of those who have taken up the banner for America. Jose Vasquez Palm Coast

+ Don’t judge Grand Haven residents by flag incident Dear Editor: When I read in the recent edition of the Palm Coast Observer about Mr. Bagnoli’s flying the Wounded Warrior flag and the Grand Haven Architectural Committee’s decision not to grant him an exception to the regulation against it, I was thinking, “Yes, living in a gated community can be like living in a minimum security prison (nod to ‘Seinfeld’).” But all Grand Haven residents did not vote to deny Mr. Bagnoli’s application to have an exception. And yet Mr. Cunnane asks, “Whatever happened to has that not been done here? Shouldn’t we have the right to expect that? Now we have the opportunity to redevelop the crown jewel of Palm Coast, and most of us agree it must be done. However, many nagging problems remain before this must be allowed to continue. Traffic is going to be a nightmare, especially for those who live on Florida Park Drive. At

American pride in this gated community?” Mr. Cunnane, you don’t know me — yet you judge my patriotism because I live in a gated community. Perhaps you don’t know how these homeowner associations work, that we have covenants and restrictions we sign when we purchase a home. I don’t agree with all the regulations or the way they are enforced; we cannot all be judged by the actions of all those who represent us. Are all the citizens of the United States responsible for the actions of every politician messing up our country just because we live here? The design committee is composed of volunteers, and I don’t know why they voted as they did — I volunteered for a couple of openings myself and was not selected by the committee. We don’t get to vote for the Architectural Design Committee. And Deborah Susswein, this is a complicated issue. You say, “There is no logical, legal, sane reason why the Grand Haven Master (author’s emphasis) Association should prohibit and fine a resident for flying a Wounded Warrior flag.” Why did you emphasize the word “Master”? What are you implying? I mentioned the covenants we all agree to abide by in addition to those of Palm Coast — they are much more strict here in Grand Haven. Exceptions open the door to legal challenges by other groups that may not be so patriotic to fly their flags. The deed restrictions I signed and received when I bought my home are in a giant white book. I don’t agree with all of them, but I do love living in this beautiful community. You don’t know me, Ms. Susswein, and you don’t know how I feel in my heart about the sacrifice of our veterans. Mr. Bagnoli, I’m sorry you are going through this hassle, and I thank and respect our veterans. The Wounded Warrior Project is so valuable; I hope this exception is granted. But I am not going to prove my patriotism to those who will judge a whole community by the actions of a few. The stereotyping I read here in the letters to the editor is hurtful and undeserved. Linda D’Aguanno Palm Coast the council meeting, a resident showed us a video of the heavy traffic on Florida Park Drive, much of it trucks. This is not going to improve with a new, larger center. And other than the tenants who are going to be moved to the new site, we have yet to hear of a tenant who has agreed

11:06 a.m. First block of Tobias Trail. A deputy spoke to a man who said he’d awoken at about 3 a.m. after hearing what sounded like a gunshot near the home. He didn’t think much of it and went back to sleep, but later that morning he found a round of ammunition lodged in the vanity mirror in the master bedroom, and called the Sheriff’s Office. A deputy checked the house and found a bullet hole in the side of the house, and deputies checking the home’s perimeter found a large bloodstain on the asphalt of nearby Old Kings Road. They followed it into the woods to a deer carcass. Deputies determined that someone

I’ll have the .38 special with fries 2:23 p.m. 200 block of Airport Road. Shots fired, non criminal. Three Florida Highway Patrol troopers were out for lunch, seated on the deck of a local restaurant, when they heard a gunshot. The troopers bolted from their seats and saw an elderly man standing two or three feet away, looking confused, with a large hole in the cargo pocket of his shorts and the steel muzzle of a handgun protruding from the hole. The troopers took the man’s gun, removed the spent cartridge and a live round of ammunition, and contacted the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office. They told a deputy who arrived at the scene that the elderly man had simply been walking along the sidewalk — he wasn’t handling the gun, and didn’t have his hands in his pockets — when the gun went off. The deputy, searching for fragments of the discharged bullet, determined that it had struck the ground, then ricocheted into a picnic table and through the restaurant’s cloth awning. The deputy submitted the man’s Cobra .38 handgun as evidence, and told him how to reclaim it later.

had shot the deer with a large caliber rifle, then tired to hit it again with a smaller gun and missed. That second bullet entered the caller’s house. The shell casing and spent round were collected as evidence. — Compiled by Jonathan Simmons

BIGGER BUCKS? + Citations for running red lights should be $300 Dear Editor: It’s time for drivers to stop complaining about tickets. Yellow means get ready to stop, not get ready to speed up. Red means stop. Cameras or not, you stop. That’s the law. It’s sad to see all these drivers in Palm Coast that complain that they have to follow the law. What if criminals start to complain that they should not be punished when they break the law? But when you are a driver that breaks the law, it’s OK? Do not say accidents are because of cameras. It’s your own fault if you don’t keep distance between yourself and the car in front of you. Tickets should be higher — at least $300. Maybe drivers will stop. Stop this stupid argument about the cameras. Follow the law like all the other laws in our society. Frode Nilsen Palm Coast

+ Don’t be shortsighted about jail diversion; it’s necessary Dear Editor: An article published last month in the Palm Coast Observer gave a brief overview of a Bunnell workshop conducted Jan. 15 on a proposed recovery-home ordinance. The article highlighted that the 15 attending residents opposing a potential faith-based recovery home in their neighborhood supported the ministry mission and felt it would work but did not want the ministry in their specific neighborhood. It is noteworthy that the Bunnell area for the proposed recovery home is a high drug-related crime area. I believe The Observer overlooked the comments of a local attendee that attended the workshop as a result of the Channel 13 news story. Robert Kennedy, executive director of AMI Kids, advised that a huge wave of state offenders will be released over the next several months. This release is unprecedented and will likely be 10 times the normal release ratios. Mr. Kennedy noted that it is critical that communities embrace residential recovery and transitional facilities. They are proven tools that enable successful transition from corrections into our local communities. He addressed those objecting residents with these questions: “If not here, where? If not now, when? If not resident recovery, how?” Mr. Kennedy noted that NIMBY (not in my back yard) is a short-term view to a pressing, near-term issue that will affect every local Florida community in the coming months. Mr. Kennedy noted to the workshop participants that those objecting may win this battle, but the war being raged by drug-regulated offenses will demand that our communities embrace recovery/alternative solutions versus an incarceration model that is unaffordable and has proven to be totally ineffective.

Dear Editor: The plan: $43,465,000 to relocate sand from point A to point B in Flagler County where, guaranteed, it will wash out to sea — in a country where 50 million Americans are food insecure, including 17 million children. Think this might be a good opportunity to really heed the new Pope, who seems to have struck such a true cord for this time in our history, e.g., “The times talk to us of so much poverty in the world, and this is a scandal.” Tell the Army Corps what you think by emailing HSDRComments@usace.army. mil. Please say no to this wasteful solution to our erosion issue about which, sadly for all Florida, Mother Nature has a pretty finite plan of her own. Bonnie Bellin Palm Coast

Value-priced home designs. Cutting-edge technology. It must be Built to Order™!

+ Student arrested at FPC for car theft, burglaries Flagler Palm Coast High School junior Matthew Wright, 18, was in class Thursday when deputies showed up at his classroom, escorted him to a patrol car and arrested him on numerous warrants for theft, grand theft and motor vehicle theft, during what Sheriff’s Office reports call a “crime spree” last month. Deputies also arrested Wright’s friend — and, deputies said, his partner in crime — Danquelle Nash, also 18. The teens have been arrested before. Last month, according to reports from the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, they led deputies on a wild early-morning chase through a Palm Coast neighborhood. It started when one of the teens tried to break down the doors of a home on Riverina Drive. A woman inside the house was in the shower when she heard banging on the front door. She went to the front of the house to look out the window and saw Nash kicking the front door, according to the Sheriff’s Office report. When the door didn’t buckle, Nash walked toward a white BMW sport utility vehicle parked in the driveway and driven by Wright, and the two teens walked back toward the house together. The resident screamed for them to leave, and they ran. Deputies were interviewing the woman when one of them saw a white BMW SUV turn on the street. The deputies took off after the car, which barreled through the R-section at up to 70 mph. Deputies lost the teens but caught them later on foot near the woodline by White View Lane. The teens were arrested then in connection to crimes including an attempted break-in at a gun store on St. Joe Plaza Drive and the theft of a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica, a 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser and an $800, 50-inch TV. The teens were released briefly while detectives built their case. Wright was arrested in class Thursday because detectives knew he was there and thought he might flee if they didn’t pick him up immediately, according to the reports. Deputies charged Wright with five counts of burglary, three counts of grand theft, two counts of attempted burglary and one count each of possession of burglary tools, petit theft and felony fleeing and eluding. He is being held at the Flagler County jail, and his bond was set at a total of $16,750, according to jail records. Nash has been charged with five counts of burglary, four counts of grand theft, two counts of attempted burglary and one count each of possession of burglary tools, robbery and resisting arrest without violence. His bond has been set at $44,500.

MAC ATTACK + Six student laptops lost, stolen out of 3,200 loaned Of the roughly 3,200 MacBook laptops loaned to students at Flagler Palm Coast High School and Matanzas High School, just six seem to be gone for good. Those six were reported lost or stolen — a lost laptop is considered stolen if it doesn’t turn up within a few days — and another 26 laptops were damaged and needed repairs. “It’s cracked screens, water damage or somebody knocks one off of a table,” Flagler Schools Technology Director Ryan Deising said. The numbers are inside the range the school district expected, although it’s early to start making calculations, he said. “We’re figured about 5% breakage over the course of a year,” he said. The first laptops loaned out to students went to i3 Academy students at Flagler Palm Coast High School, who started the school year with them in August, he said. The rest were loaned out to students in October. Students pay escalating fines, in most cases starting at $100, for damaged district laptops.

Coast, was pronounced dead following a car crash at approximately 3:25 a.m. Saturday, on Whiteview Parkway. Cronin’s 2002 Toyota Camry was traveling eastbound on Whiteview Parkway, at about 80 mph when it drove off the road into a grassy median and then struck a tree. No other vehicles were involved.

+ Suspects shoot at, attempt to rob Domino’s delivery girl A gun was fired at a Domino’s pizza delivery driver around 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon, following a failed robbery attempt in Palm Coast’s P section. The driver told deputies that she got lost trying to find her way back to Belle Terre Parkway, after making a delivery, when she saw two men on Powder Hill Drive. When she stopped to ask them for directions, one of the men lifted his shirt to display a handgun, she said. Then he demanded money. The victim said the second suspect began to run to the woods, at which time she put her car in reverse to try to escape. As she was backing away, the first suspect fired a single shot into her vehicle, and the bullet struck the LCD screen on the radio in her center console. The driver then fled the area. She stopped at a parking lot on Palm Coast Parkway to call the police. The driver was not injured during the incident. Patrol deputies, assisted by a Sheriff’s Office K-9, searched the area for the suspects, who were not located. The suspects were described as 18 to 20 years of age. Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office, at 313-4911.

NETTS: ‘OH, WOW’ By Andrew O’Brien | Associate Editor

With no bidders, city will handle signal modifications at S.R. 100

+ One in critical condition after Sunday wreck A traffic accident involving three motorcycles Sunday on northbound U.S. 1 sent two Jacksonville residents to the hospital, one in critical condition. Jacksonville residents Kelly Sue Melton, 49, and Gordon Eugene Drady, 61, were traveling next to each other on motorcycles along northbound U.S. 1, behind Michele Lyn Tola, 42, also of Jacksonville, when they approached a red traffic light. The three bikes began to slow when Melton lost control, sideswiping Drady. Melton’s motorcycle then struck the rear tire of Tola’s motorcycle, causing it to overturn and ejecting Melton. Melton was flown to Halifax Health Medical Center and is critical condition. Drady has serious injuries. Tola was not injured. The investigation is still pending.

New pedestrian sidewalks being built along State Road 100 and Seminole Woods Boulevard will require traffic signal modifications at the intersection, but the city will need to take matters into its own hands to complete the project. “We received zero bids on this proposal,” City Manager Jim Landon told the Palm Coast City Council at Tuesday’s workshop. “Oh, wow,” Mayor Jon Netts

replied to the news. Not having at least one bidder on a project is unusual, Landon said. “It’s an indication of how busy contractors are right now,” Landon said. “It’s good that our contractors are busy, but it’s bad news for (the city), as far as getting competitive bids so we can move the project forward.” The county is constructing the path along State Road 100, from Bulldog Drive to Roberts

Road. The city is in the process of designing and constructing a path along Seminole Woods Boulevard. With no bidders, the city will act as a general contractor and will have to solicit prices from subcontractors to do the work. That includes adding the pedestrian signal to the intersection. The signal will have a countdown timer like other pedestrians signals in the city. Landon said it’s difficult to

wrestling playoffs By Andrew O’Brien | Associate Editor

Shavers wins region, FPC advances ‘We should have a lot more go,’ Flagler Palm Coast wrestling coach Tom Bartolotta said, in regard to advancing to states.

Following an undefeated regular season, Flagler Palm Coast wrestling coach Tom Bartolotta seemed confident he could send at least 10 wrestlers to the state meet. Then came postseason injuries. FPC finished third at the Region 1-3A meet, with five wrestlers advancing to the state meet, which will be Feb. 14-15, at the Lakeland Center, in Lakeland. Headlining the state qualifiers is Alfred Shavers, who took first place in the region in the 120-pound class. Jake Kosachiner (113 pounds), Kaz Maia (132) and Jonathan Muniz (195) all finished second in the region. Justin Boyle took fourth at 160 pounds. The Bulldogs had three wrestlers miss qualifying for states by a match. The good news, Bartolotta said, is that there is only one senior in the starting lineup, and although he still has five wrestlers contending for a state title, next year should be successful, too. “We should have a lot more go to states,” Bartolotta said. “But next year, we bring them all back, and we should be tough.” Zac Branning, the 106-pounder, missed qualifying by a match.

DENNIS, CASTANHEIRA ADVANCE FOR MATANZAS Clayton Dennis (170 pounds) and Jordin Castanheira (182) both qualified for the Class 2A state meet. Dennis finished second, losing in a double overtime finals match. Castanheira finished fourth. Matanzas, much like Flagler Palm Coast, had many wrestlers fall just short of qualifying. Rocky Samples, Carter Goodman, Chad Samples and Troy Magnuson all lost in the consolation semifinals — one match away from qualifying. Rocky Samples and Goodman both lost by one point. But Matanzas will return almost its entire starting lineup except for Dennis. The Class 2A state meet will be Feb. 14-15, at the Lakeland Center, in Lakeland.

Muniz suffered a small tear in one of the ligaments in his knee before districts last season and didn’t wrestle in the postseason. But he’s back,

In total, FPC had five wrestlers qualify for the state meet. and he says he’s stronger than ever. This was the first time Muniz, a junior, wrestled in regionals. “The regional tournament was a tough one,” Muniz said. “All I was thinking about was the match I had next so I could stay concentrated.” Muniz said he will continue to wrestle smart and focus on the match at hand at the state tournament.

FOR STARTERS By Andrew O’Brien | Associate Editor

Team Flagler caps historic year with national title A state championship wasn’t enough for the players on Team Flagler, the 60AA traveling softball team from Flagler County. A national championship is, though. Team Flagler, the competitive slowpitch team, captured the 2014 International Senior Softball Association World Tournament of Champions Jan. 24-26, in Tampa, going undefeated in ANDREW six games. O’BRIEN The quest to the title began in seeding games on Jan. 24. Team Flagler won its first game over Spring Ford 60s (Birdsboro, Pa.), 16-4, and its second game over the Maumee Bay Raptors (Oregon, Ohio), 21-9. Team Flagler headed into Saturday’s play as one of the two No. 1 seeds. In the first game on Saturday, Team Flagler cruised to a 13-6 win over the Chicago Silver Hitmen, from Secor, Ill. Tom Baker, Team Flagler’s third baseman, tallied four hits, and catcher Jim Jividen knocked in

three RBIs. The second game on Saturday was much closer, as Team Flagler faced Flip Dow Bonding (Gastonia, N.C.). Flagler jumped out to an early 10-4 lead, but Flip Dow Bonding stormed back to take a 1312 lead. Team Flagler rallied for three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning, though, and blanked Flip Dow Bonding in the top of the seventh to win, 15-13. Flagler was led by outfielder Tom Knott (three hits, double, triple, 2 RBIs) and pitcher Jim Zgorzelski (three hits, 3 RBIs). The final game on Saturday brought Team Flagler up against the only other undefeated team in the bracket: HME 60s, from Alpharetta, Ga. — the team that eliminated Team Flagler in the U.S. championships back in October. This game was a slugfest with things looking poorly for Flagler, as they fell behind by seven runs entering their final at-bat. But there was no quit. Team Flagler sent 12 men to the plate in the top of the seventh, rallying for nine hits, including Baker’s two-out double to plate two runs and give his team a 24-23 lead. Team Flagler’s defense shut down the HME 60s in their final at-bat to finish

Saturday as the lone undefeated team. Because the tournament was doubleelimination, Flagler had two opportunities to beat Sun City-Hilton Head (Bluffon, S.C.) for the championship. Flagler only needed one, winning 28-15 in six innings. As icing on the cake, four Team Flagler players were named to the ISSA World All Tournament 60AA Team: Baker (.619 BA, 12 RBIs), Knott (.696 BA, seven doubles, two triples, 13 RBIs), second baseman

Billy Martin (.600 BA, 13 runs), and Zgorzelski (five wins, .708 BA, 11 RBIs). Jim Ganci was named Manager of the Year. Jividen also won MVP of the tournament, with a .708 batting average, seven doubles, two triples, one HR and 17 RBIs, to go along with one win pitching and one save as a relief pitcher. The national title capped off a successful 2013 for Team Flagler, which also won state and regional titles.

Matanzas’ Haley McQueen battles for the ball Feb. 6 against Merritt Island’s Kayli Jacobs in the Class 3A semifinals.

Lady Pirates end dream season on a high note Merritt Island scored early, going on to beat Matanzas, 2-0, in the Class 3A girls soccer semifinals. About an hour after his team suffered a 2-0 loss to Merritt Island in the Class 3A girls soccer state semifinals on Feb. 6, Matanzas coach Tony Benvenuto sat in Chick-fil-A replaying the first goal in his mind. He felt it was offside. The refs missed the call, he said. Despite coming up a game short of a state championship appearance, it’d be tough for Benvenuto and the Lady Pirates to find something to hang their heads about. Matanzas (24-3-2) had the best season in the school’s soccer history — boys or girls. The Lady Pirates claimed a district championship and a regional championship en route to the program’s first ever Final Four. “We achieved quite a bit this year,” Benvenuto said after the game, with a chuckle. “I’m proud of my girls. We’re just going to regroup and hopefully come back again next year.” Matanzas will lose key players to graduation: Gabbi Paiz (the program’s all-time leading scorer) and midfielders Abby Barker and Michelle Dominguez graduate. Gabby Foran and Sam Stack, both defenders, also graduate. But the bulk of the players that made this year’s Final Four run will return: Miracle Porter (68 goals, 16 assists),

Karen Rodriguez (21 goals, 21 assists), Bailey Pickering (seven goals, 13 assists), Bella Benvenuto (20 shutouts, 0.46 goals against average), Claire Slamka (five goals, eight assists) and Leanna Ballschmieder (19 goals, 15 assists). Defenders Haley McQueen and Payton Tucker will also return. Beyond soccer, though, Benvenuto said he thinks his team has created something special for the entire school. “Winning is contagious,” he said. “I think we started something where our girls literally gave a big infusion to our entire school spirit.” Merritt Island took a 1-0 lead in the fifth minute on a ball served back into the box and then flicked on toward the net. Two Lady Mustangs players were there, and Alyson Wheble was able to flick the ball past Matanzas keeper Bella Benvenuto. Coach Tony Benvenuto said he thought both players were offside. “I don’t know much about soccer, but I’m pretty sure the first goal was offside,” he said. “Merritt Island won fair and square. I really believe we were playing against 14 players today. The referees were awful on both sides.” Merritt Island (17-2-3) scored its second goal just seconds after the secondhalf water break, with about 19 minutes left.

Matanzas keeper Bella Benvenuto tries to punch the ball away during last week’s state semifinal. Benvenuto finished the season with 20 shutouts.

Freshman Madi Hald streaks down the field Feb. 7 in the Class 5A semifinals.

Final Four run sets bar for next season St. Thomas Aquinas scored the game-winning goal just three minutes into overtime, ending FPC’s season. Before every game, Flagler Palm Coast girls soccer coach Pete Hald gives his team a challenge. He writes it down on a piece of paper. For most of the season, the Lady Bulldogs have accomplished what they were asked to do. That includes last Friday, when Hald gave his team three challenges going into the Class 5A semifinals against St. Thomas Aquinas, the sixth-ranked team in the country. Challenge No. 1 was to stop St. Thomas Aquinas’ leading scorer, Isabella Dorosy, who came into the game with 17 goals. Mission accomplished. Challenge No. 2 was mostly directed to FPC keeper Leah Leach. She was tasked to shutout the Lady Raiders. For 80 minutes, Leach did just that. The third challenge was to score three goals on St. Thomas Aquinas. Why three? “Because no one had scored more than two goals on them except for teams in Texas,” Hald said. “I always give my offense a challenge.” Unfortunately, the Lady Bulldogs couldn’t find the back of the net. And after 80 minutes with neither team scoring a goal, overtime began. Within the first minute, a ball was headed out to FPC midfielder Josie Davis, who uncorked a blistering shot on goal. St. Thomas Aquinas freshman keeper Abigail Pangallo was beat, but the ball soared just inches above the crossbar. Still scoreless. Just minutes later at the other end of the field, St. Thomas Aquinas’ Dallas Dorosy found a glimpse of daylight and slotted the golden goal past Leach. Game over, season over for the Lady Bulldogs. “Oh, wow,” Hald said after the game, taking a deep breath. “Well that’s not exactly what I wanted to have happen.” FPC (15-7-4) ended its season just two wins shy of a state championship. It was the first time Hald has taken his team to the Final Four in 23 years as FPC’s coach. He knew St. Thomas Aquinas — a private school and national powerhouse in

FPC coach Pete Hald said keeper Leah Leach was the MVP of the game. all sports each year — was going to be a tough opponent. His team battled, though. And he expects his team to be in contention against next season. FPC will lose just three seniors: Sarah DiLoreto, Ashley Friedman and Emily Turner. Most of the team returns, though, including leading goal scorer Christen Barney, forward Tanagna Payne, midfielders Madi Hald, Bella Giuliano and Josie Davis, defenders Amanda Raleigh, Cara Warren and Kaelin Cote. Keeper Leah Leach will return, too. She made save after save for FPC last week, including back-to-back kick saves on breakaways to send the game into overtime. Hald dubbed her the game’s MVP. “I definitely think that we have as good a chance as anybody — if not better — because we do have a strong team coming back,” Hald said of next year’s expectations. FPC captured its second straight district title and a regional title, but perhaps the challenge going into next year will be to make the state finals and play for a state championship. “I definitely look forward to next year,” Hald said.

SIDELINES This + Matanzas’ Kayla Short sets records, finishes 12th in state Valentine’s Day, Give the Gift of Entertainment Darlene Love

It wasn’t a state title, but Matanzas weightlifter Kayla Short had a recordsetting weekend at the girls weightlifting state competition. Short set two personal records at the state meet. She was seeded 14th coming into the competition, coach Sara Novak said. Short finished 12th. Short benched a personal-record 200 pounds (a five-pound PR) and clean-andjerked 155 pounds (another five-pound PR) for a 305-pound total. “She did a fantastic job in a huge competition like that,” Novak said. Novak judged the first group of lifters, which included the 101 pounds to 139 pounds weight classes, and then she was able to coach during Kayla’s lifts. “I am so happy Kayla’s hard work took her to states,” Novak said. “(It was a)

Sun shines for Citrus Harvest Festival T

o avoid a rainy Saturday, the Citrus Harvest Festival held at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park was postponed one day to allow for the sun to shine for the celebration of Florida’s No. 1 industry. The main events of the day included a cooking-with-citrus demonstration by Ruth Micieli, personal chef with Simple Gourmet Catering, and a tour of the Washington Oaks citrus groves. Before the cooking demonstration, Micieli, who is also with the Florida Agricultural Extension office, addressed an issue plaguing Florida citrus: citrus greening. The issue was also addressed on the tour. Citrus greening is spread by a disease-infected insect, the Asian citrus psyllid, and has put the future of America’s citrus at risk. Infected trees produce fruits that are green, misshapen and bitter, unsuitable for sale as fresh fruit or for juice. “We need to do our duediligence as homeowners and responsible citizens and make

Park Services Specialist Melissa Clauson

sure that we are not spreading diseases and pest problems throughout the state by moving things that don’t need to be moved and keeping an eye on our own situations,” Micieli said. The trees in the historic grove at Washington Oaks have also been infected by citrus greening, and park rangers are in the discovery process of deciding what the next step would be, according to Melissa Clauson, park services specialist.

HONEY ORANGE GLAZED FLORIDA GROUPER

What you need: 1 tablespoon honey 1 tablespoon orange marmalade 1 tablespoon orange juice 3/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard 1/2 teaspoon light soy sauce 1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper 1/4 pound grouper fillets (or any white fish)

What to do: Preheat broiler. Combine all ingredients except grouper, mixing well. Place fillets on an oiled broiler pan and brush fillets with honey glaze to cover. Broil 5-6 inches from heat for 4-5 minutes until browned. Turn fillets, brush with glaze and broil additional 5 minutes

A big ‘thank you’ to the crossing guards With the sun barely up, in wind and rain and 50-degree temperatures, crossing guards Juan Salicrup and George “Ed” Wilson manned their posts on Belle Terre Parkway and Bird of Paradise. Friday, Feb. 7, was just a regular day for them, doing their job to help children cross the street and make it to school safely. The irregular part of the day was when Sheriff James L. Manfre, Flagler County School Board member John Fischer, District Safety Coordinator Winnie Oden, Cpl. Don Apperson, Assistant Superintendent Jacob Oliva, Sabrina Crosby, Maria Barbcosa and Denise Calderwood showed up in the rain to serve coffee and breakfast to the two guards. It was Crossing Guard Appreciation Day, and the entourage visited eight locations throughout the county as a great big “thank you” for keeping children safe. Crossing Guard Appreciation Day is a proclamation from Gov. Rick Scott. “These men and women are protecting our school children every morning and afternoon to make sure that they get to school and back home safely,” Manfre said. “They do an outstanding job.” For Salicrup and Wilson, they said it’s just a day’s work. But the delivery made them feel appreciated.

Like other freshwater fish, crappie tend to hang out around cover, but crappie will also venture out into more open water to feed. Spring crappie are often found in weed beds or near blowdowns near the shore. On cold days, the fish tend to hold deeper. These fish are members of the sunfish family, and like their relatives, aren’t the pickiest eaters. But be careful when you set the hook: Crappie are also known as “paper-mouths” for good reason. Too energetic a hook set will leave an empty hook and an injured fish.

change by the minute, so ardent crappie fishermen tend to keep a range and try different ones until the hits start coming. Spinners, lures that spin and vibrate in the water, can help bring in the fish in dark or muddy water where even a bright jig might go unnoticed. If you’re using live bait, insects are a popular choice. Crappie go for crickets, and earthworms can draw a bite, too. For larger fish, try small shiners.

Most folks go for crappie on spinning tackle with a four- to eight-pound line, which makes it easy to feel a bite but a challenge to fight these scrappy, little fish. A heavier leader of 15- or 20-pound test line might be required if you’re fishing the heavy submerged brush piles these fish often hang out around. And, of course, a small sinker above a light lure will make casting easier. If you’re fishing with lures, jigs are a popular way to go. Sizes and colors? Take your pick. Crappie jigs range from .0125 to .125 of an ounce, with most folks — and, it seems, the fish — preferring something in the middle. Crappies’ color preferences seem to

If there’s a close second to bass-fishing fanaticism in the freshwater fishing world, it must be crappie-fishing craziness. Crappie (and it’s pronounced “CROP-pie,” potty mouth) aren’t very big fish — the state record, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Committee’s website, is 3.83 pounds, and most crappie are closer to one pound — but they have a big following. And much of that JONATHAN SIMMONS following, it seems, streams down to Flagler’s Dead Lake and Crescent Lake, both known to hold monster specimens. Want to join them and wet a line for this tasty table-fare fish? Here are some pointers.

NOTICE City of Palm Coast WATER CUSTOMERS

Ethnic-aisle enlightenment

TEMPORARY MODIFICATION OF DISINFECTION TREATMENT PROCEDURES In order to maintain the reliability of the water distribution system serving our customers, the City of Palm Coast Utility Department will temporarily change the disinfection process for the Palm Coast potable (drinking water) water supply. From February 17, through March 24, 2014 we will disinfect the water with free chlorine rather than combined chlorine/ammonia (chloramines). This change will also affect residents and customers of Flagler County Utilities. The periodic and temporary conversion from chloramines (which are a longer-lasting disinfectant) to free chlorine (which is a stronger disinfectant), helps to ensure the quality of the drinking water in the distribution system. The maintenance program, which is a normal procedure for water systems, is supported by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and will include daily testing to monitor water quality and measure the effectiveness of the program. After this process is completed, we will revert to disinfection by the chloramines method. During this period, customers may experience a slight increase in the taste and odor of chlorine. Customers on dialysis who use a proportioning machine to prepare dialysate are advised to contact their physician to obtain the appropriate steps to accommodate the change in water disinfection. Customers who have fish tanks or aquatic species are advised to contact a professional aquarist to avoid any problems associated with chlorine.

Customers are asked to call the Utility Department’s Customer Service telephone number (386) 986-2360 with any questions concerning this change in disinfectants.

I recently discovered a magical and mystical land, full of hope and possibility. Maybe you’ve heard of it. It’s called the ethnic aisle. Like all revolutionaries, occasionally I dabble in food experimentation — broaden my horizons through the preparation of something worldly and exotic, like boxed tacos. What’s that — you want some hot sauce on those eggs? Hey, MIKE CAVALIERE why not some salsa, instead? None of you have any idea what I’m capable of. Usually, my culinary adventures stay south of the border — that is until Molly had the inspired idea to mentally travel east and try our hand at some pad Thai. “Hey, why don’t we mentally travel east and try our hand at some pad Thai tonight?” she said. And that’s when I knew she was onto something. For those of you with deep-seated uncultured swine leanings (and if I know my readership (nudge-nudge), that’s most of you), I’ll explain. Pad Thai is a rare rice noodle dish that has its origins deep in the jungles of Thailand, or from a box in the ethnic food aisle at your local Publix, where shopping is a pleasure. Its first known recipes were carved into the cloud-covered peaks of mountainsides, reachable only by the most cunning of starving, rock-climbing chefs. But now, you can pretty much find it anywhere. “OK, we’ll need cilantro,” Molly said, reading off the back of the sauce packet on Aisle 5. “Lime. Peanuts. Bean sprouts — ” “I’m gonna stop you right there,” I said,

extending my open palm toward her, crossing-guard-style, to stop her right there. “Bean sprouts? Are you sure you really want to do this? You realize that once our palates go down this path of culinary intrigue, there’s no turning back.” “And shrimp and green onion,” she kept going. And that’s when I knew, right there, that our palates were indeed going down this path of culinary intrigue — and that, no, they, in fact, would not be coming back. When we rang up our items at the register, I could see in the way our stone-faced cashier said nothing that she was flabbergasted. These are the ingredients for pad Thai, she must have thought, bewildered. I truly have no idea what these people are capable of. Some chopped onion and a sprinkle of cilantro garnish later, and we had ourselves a little piece of the Far East. We had a little yin, a little yang. We tasted it, and there it was: We were zen. “This is how Lennon and The Beatles must’ve felt when they went to India,” I said, sucking noodles in, letting them flap and wiggle outside my lips. “Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream,” Molly whispered, plucking strings on her sitar. And that was the moment — if you blinked, you might’ve missed it — that we became gurus. We’d mastered the whole mind-body thing. We were spiritually awakened at last. And we knew things would have to change: We’d have to transition to pants with no buttons, first and foremost; we’d need to get new friends — enlightened friends — and a couple new throw rugs. “Wait a second: Aren’t gurus mostly Indian?” Molly asked, brow furrowed. But I was too busy meditating to deal with any of that nonsense. “Om,” I chanted, just like she’d said nothing at all.

Del Hydrick hangs the sign for his new auto garage, at 2700 State Road 100, across from Wendy’s.

Car vet finally opens own shop: ‘It’s in my blood’ Del Hydrick has worked in the auto industry in Flagler County for more than 20 years.

D

el Hydrick wanted his own auto garage since he was a kid, fixing cars in his native DeKalb, Ill., as part of a high school work cooperative program. And today, his dream has almost come true. Hydrick, 46, is planning the grand opening of Del’s Full Service Garage. “Cars are my passion,” he said in the freshly scrubbed lobby of the shop. “I love cars, all kinds of cars: new ones, old ones, fast ones. The style, the lines — I love all aspects of a car. I think it’s in my blood.” The shop — at 2700 State Road 100, across from Wendy’s — will open its doors Monday, Hydrick said. A grand opening with hot dogs and refreshments will follow in about a month. Hydrick, a Flagler County resident since 1987, worked at Tom Gibbs Chevrolet for 21 years as a service manager, then moved to a Tuffy automotive repair franchise, converting the muffler and oil-change business to a full-service garage. Branching out on his own is a “leap of faith,” he said. “My whole goal in life was to own my own business, and it finally came to where I financially could do it, and I have the guts to go and do it,” he said. Hydrick has hired one me-

chanic and hopes to employ two more. To get started, he got some help from the Palm Coast Business Assistance Center. The BAC’s Joe Roy helped him run the numbers and work on promotional strategy, meeting with him about 15 times in four months. “We really worked with him on the financials of the business plan, and once he gets going, we’ll really work with him on how to advertise,” Roy said. “For somebody going into that business, they need to have a promotional plan so they’re not wondering in January what they’ll be doing in February. They need to be at least nine months out.” Hydrick said he believes some of his customers will follow him to his new location. “I have some extremely loyal

Del Hydrick customers who’ve been following me, and I decided it was time to do it on my own,” he said. He hopes to eventually expand the four-bay garage into an eight-bay garage. “I realize many people wouldn’t want to start a business in this kind of economy,” he said. “However, I feel it’s the perfect time to start a business. And eventually, when things get comfortable and I get a feel for everything, we’re going to give back to the community.” Hydrick’s two sons attend Flagler Palm Coast High School — one plays football and soc-

cer, the other plays sax in the band — and Hydrick’s already envisioning the car washes and bake sales. He said his father, also a small business owner, taught him a thing or two about what it takes to run a shop. “He was a butcher by trade, and he had the foresight to buy a minimarket right on the corner, and converted that minimarket into a local food market. I was always working: stacking bottles or hauling beef, packing beef, stocking shelves,” he said. “My father gave me my work ethic.”

BIZBUZZ + Grand Haven Realty donates to Mended Little Hearts Grand Haven Realty is donating $200 of every sale or new listing it gets throughout February to Mended Little Hearts of Volusia County, an organization that helps support parents of children with heart problems. “Longtime Grand Haven sales agent and resident Dianne Thornton first brought the issue of juvenile congenital heart defects to our attention last year, when her grandson Cooper Ascone was diagnosed,” Grand Haven Realty President Jim Cullis said in a press release. “We joined forces with the Grand Haven Golf Club and residents in the community and Palm Coast to raise funds for Cooper last year, so this is a natural extension of that effort during National Heart Health month.” Mended Little Hearts helped Cooper and his family during several critical surgical procedures, and Cooper is now a healthy 3-year-old. Grand Haven Realty is also promoting a Mended Little Hearts benefit 5K Fun Run event on Feb. 15. The event begins with 9 a.m. with registration at the Port Orange City Center, and the run starts at 10 a.m. Call 681-7790, for more. For more information about

Darlene Love brings big vocals to Flagler stage Darlene Love got her start as a backup singer by accident. “I didn’t mean to. I think it just happened,” she said in a phone interview Monday afternoon. Coming from a gospel family, she started singing backup in the church choir and eventually landed a mic with The Blossoms in 1958. They were a regular singing group trying to record their own music, but their manager at the time offered the group as background singers to other acts. “But nothing is really an accident ­— things happen and nothing can stop it from happening,” Love said. “That’s how my career got started.” Now, 51 years in the business, Love is celebrating a solo career and an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary Feature for “20 feet from Stardom,” her film documenting the lives of background singers. “It’s a wonderful surprise that my career started and I’ve walked to the front of the stage, but to be nominated for an Academy Award is just mind blowing,” Love said. Work on the documentary started two years ago with the goal to give people more of an understanding of the importance of background singers. “When people see a show, they see the star, the band and then the background singers,” Love said. “You don’t really know anything about background singers. You know they’re singing, but you don’t really know anything about what it means.” What most people don’t realize, Love said, is that background singers usually sing the hook. The hook is what most people learn before they

In 2011, Love received her industry’s highest award by being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Rolling Stone Magazine proclaimed Love to be “one of the greatest singers of all time.” Her debut on the Flagler Auditorium stage will be her first solo performance in Florida. “I’m so excited about being able to bring my show to my fans there,” she said. Love will perform some of her classic Billboard hits: “He’s A Rebel,” “The Boy I’m Gonna Marry” and “Da Doo Ron Ron,” as well as some gospel. “I still enjoy singing those songs,” she said. “You don’t get tired of singing those songs, because that’s what the audience wants to hear.” Photo by Christopher Logan

Film Festival sheds light on Iranian culture The Ancient Persia-Modern Iran Program Series, in partnership with Cinematique of Daytona Beach, will present selected highlights from the sixth-annual Noor Iranian Film Festival Friday, Feb. 14 through Tuesday, Feb. 18. The Ancient Persia Modern Iran Program Series is a joint presentation of the Iranian Navid Negahban American Society, Bethune-Cookman University, Daytona State College, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the Southeast Museum of Photography, and the Department of Cultural Arts at Daytona State College. “Museums are about outreach and education outside of their walls,” said Kevin Miller, director of the Southeast Museum of Photography, where the majority of the films will be shown. “It’s a major change of the mission in museums. Daytona State College is central in both cultural and education enrichment, and one of the museum’s goals is to support that outreach.” Noor Iranian Film Festival was founded in 2005 by Siamak Ghahremani and is an international event, with the goal of educating and informing the non-Iranian community about the culture and heritage of Iranians around the world through

the medium of cinema. The festival also cultivates and promotes IranianAmerican talent in Hollywood and was the first Iranian Film Festival to occur outside of Iran. Named “Noor,” meaning “light” in Persian, the festival makes reference to the key element of “light” used in the art of filmmaking as well as the festival’s purpose to “shed light” on

Iranian culture and heritage. The local festival will kick off with an opening reception and preview event, An Evening with Navid Negahban, 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14, at Daytona State College, Mori Hosseini Center (Bldg. 1200), 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd., Daytona Beach. Negahban, an Iranian-American TV and movie actor who has been

seen in “Homeland” and “The Stoning of Soraya M,” will be a special guest joining Ghahremani to discuss the films playing at this year’s festival. Tickets are $35 per person. Noor Festival film screenings will be presented in different schedules and times at the Southeast Museum of Photography’s Madorsky Theater and also at the Cinematique of Daytona.
