Building Relationships Serving Up Two New A Handshake at a Time Events By Matt Dunn | Flagler Chamber VP of Tourism Thanks to the exceptional work of my predecessor Georgia Turner and our staff, tourism results for first quarter 2014 were a thrilling success. Tourist development tax collections are up 17% over 2013, and given the positive changes we’ve implemented recently, we expect collections will rise. Staff traveled to Tallahassee March 12 for Florida Tourism Day and to support legislative initiatives of our industry partners. We attended meetings of the Florida Association of Destination Marketing Organizations (FADMO) and the Florida Sports Foundation (FSF) to reinforce the importance of tourism to our state’s economy. During our FADMO meetings, we discussed Springs Protection, revisions to the RISE Agreement, Medical Tourism, Visit Florida’s budget, Film Project Tax Credits, Vacation Rental Properties and protected uses of the Tourist Development Tax. Additional support for the Florida Senior Games and funding levels of the License Plate Program were the primary topics with the FSF. We met with both House and Senate leaders to encourage their ongoing support for tourism initiatives. In 2013, 94.7 million out-of-state and international visitors came to Florida and research shows 20.1 million in-state travelers. Tourism generated $76.1 billion, one job for every 85 visitors, 23% of sales tax revenues and $4.6 billion in sales tax collections. As you can see, tourism matters to Florida’s economy! Our office spends a significant amount of time creating new relationships across all market segments and strengthening connections with industry friends to attract group-related business to our destination thus enhancing Florida’s growing tourism industry. Please contact us if you are a member of an industry association and travel to seminars, conferences or training sessions. We have opportunities and incentives to support and attract event directors and meeting planners. Let’s work together as a team and bring business home!

In April, the Chamber is serving up two new events to add to your calendar. The first is the Young Professionals Group Putt-Crawl on April 12. A “putt crawl” is one part networking, one part putt-putt golf and one GIANT part fun. The inaugural event kicks off at Veterans Park, where participants will get their putters, drink tickets/scorecard and a commemorative putt-crawl mug. From there, teams will “crawl” to participating restaurants and take swings at freestanding putt-putt holes. After they record their score, they pull off a ticket, grab a drink and move on to the next “hole.” The crawl will end at Finn’s Beachside Pub, where prizes will be awarded for best score, best hole sponsor and more. Call Tiffany Edwards for info at 386.437.0106. Flagler Restaurant Week is a new culinary celebration that replaces its one-night-only predecessor, Taste of Flagler. Flagler Restaurant Week will showcase the great restaurants, chefs and talent that make up our local gastronomic scene. Flagler Restaurant Week (FRW) gives local “foodies” and visitors a perfect opportunity to support participating restaurants by dining out between April 25 and May 9. This event will increase visibility for Flagler County restaurants and encourage diners to explore different establishments where special prix fixe menus will be offered. There are no passes, tickets or coupons for Restaurant Week. Diners simply visit participating restaurants over nine days to enjoy prix fixe breakfast, lunches and dinners. Diners can learn more and make reservations through a recently launched Flagler Restaurant Week website (www. flaglerrestaurantweek.com). A special FRW VIP Kick-Off party will be held Thursday, April 24 at 5:30PM at Marineland Dolphin Adventure. The $20 admission will include hors d’oeuvres, one drink ticket, music and great company, with Marineland’s dolphins and the ocean as backdrops. Tickets are on sale now at the Chamber at www.flaglerchamber.org. Like the Flagler Restaurant Week Facebook page for more updates.

CONSTRUCTION

homeless no more By Jonathan Simmons | News Editor

THE PROMISE OF A

NEW BEGINNING

Construction on the six-laning of Palm Coast Parkway will cause 13 red light cameras to come down until the project is almost completed, city officials said Tuesday. Three cameras have either come down or will come down in the coming days, and another 10 will come down over the next four to six months, according to Cindi Lane, marketing and communications manager for the city. “The red light cameras will be reinstalled toward the end of construction on Palm Coast Parkway,” Lane said in an email. City officials expect the project to be completed by December 2015.

+ Rewards dished out for recycling Five Palm Coast households were given $50 restaurant gift cards March 4, in the quarterly drawing for the city of Palm Coast’s Waste Pro Rewards Program: Ralph Ascione, Darla Beck, Mary Ann Filippi, Alice Fusco and Donald Reph. The winners were selected randomly from all participants of the Rewards Program. To sign up, Palm Coast residents can call 888-234-8211 or visit wasteprorewards.com.

Free basketball, baseball, soccer, volleyball and golf clinics for ages 5-16 are scheduled 9:30 a.m. to noon March 22, at Holland Park and the Palm Harbor Golf Club. To pre-register children ages 5 to 16, visit palmcoastgov.com or call 986-2323.

+ AAUW inspires female engineers As one of its STEM activities, the Flagler County Branch of the American Association of University Women donated a GoldieBlox construction kit to the Flagler County Public Library. GoldieBlox was created by Debbie Sterling, a female engineer from Stanford University. Sterling’s goal is to increase the number of women working in what is currently a predominately male field. The GoldieBlox kit, which targets ages 5-9, contains a book featuring Goldie, a young female inventor who likes to build things.

Sandra Valentine and her son, Isaiah, 17, have found a new apartment near State Road 100 and are settling in. For more on Family Promise, visit familypromiseflagler.org.

With the help of Family Promise and the church community, a Palm Coast mother and son moved from a car to an apartment.

hen Sandra Valentine and her son, Isaiah, 17, lived in their ’89 Thunderbird in the parking lot of the McDonald’s on Palm Coast Parkway, nights were hard. A few times, people called the Sheriff’s Office to report the pair who had been in the parking lot for hours. Strange people wandered by at night. “It’s scary. It’s really scary,” Sandra Valentine said. “We used to take turns sleeping because I didn’t feel secure with us both asleep.” Now, they don’t have to do that anymore. With the help of a local organization — Family Promise — that housed the two in churches, Valentine saved up enough money from her shift supervisor job at McDonald’s to move into a new apartment in the Madison Green complex off State Road 100. The two moved Thursday,

furnishing the new home with all the things they’d had to put in storage when they lost their last one. Isaiah, a tech and computer buff, had taken his time setting out his Transformer models on the nightstands on either side of his bed. It had been a long time since he’d had his own space to decorate. “The most difficult thing was figuring out where everything was going to be,” he said. “I had to tell myself, ‘Hey, I don’t have to pack all this up in a week. I’m going to be here.’”

Path to homelessness

Valentine, a New York native raised in Florida and Puerto Rico, moved to Flagler County in 2009 after splitting up with her husband. She’d followed him to Norway and stayed there for three freezing years — struggling to adjust to the language, the culture and the cold — before returning home. Back in Florida on her own, she didn’t have much. She and Isaiah moved into a home with an older woman who needed help paying her mortgage. Valentine worked at McDonald’s, and Isaiah worked weekends at Publix, bagging groceries. But when the older woman’s financial circumstances changed this past September, and she no longer needed the few hundred a month the Valentines had paid for rent, she

Green turn arrow coming to most-violated signal

The Florida Department of Transportation has approved a green arrow for right turns from State Road 100 onto Memorial Medical Parkway, into Florida Hospital Flagler. That traffic signal will remain green except when the left turn for eastbound traffic on State Road 100 has a green arrow to turn into the hospital, Lane said. The red light camera at the intersection of State Road 100 and Memorial Medical Parkway is often the most-violated signal. For the week of Feb. 25 to March 2, that intersection had 458 violation events, but just nine citations were issued. “We have submitted the design, and we are awaiting (the state’s) approval,” Lane said.

RED EYES OF DOOM

There were 253 citations issued for the week of Feb. 25 to March 2, according to numbers provided by American Traffic Solutions. For camera-by-camera stats for this week, search “red eyes of doom” on palmcoastobserver.com.

Daniel Noble returned to the Europa Lounge with an Uzi and two hunting knives. Deputies say he fired one or two shots into the ground before being tackled.

County holds farm survey

Patrons tackle armed ‘Rambo’ Deputies have arrested a 37-year-old Palm Coast man after they say he opened fire and stabbed two patrons Saturday night at Europa Lounge. D a n i e l Noble, of 4 Daniel Noble, White House 37, is being Drive, was held on no taken into bond on the custody by attempted first- deputies, acdegree murder cording to a charge. release sent out by Cmdr. Bob Weber. Deputies received calls of shots fired and a person

stabbed around 11:25 p.m. Saturday, at the lounge located in the European Village. Callers reported a man, armed with an Uzi-style submachine gun, walked into the lounge and challenged several patrons. Deputies investigating the incident learned that Noble had been drinking at the bar earlier in the evening. The release states Noble was “having a good time and was not causing any problems with either employees or patrons.” It is unclear what may have triggered him to return armed, Weber said. Patrons said Noble entered the lounge dressed like “Rambo” with the gun and two hunting-style knives hol-

stered to his sides. Two patrons stopped Noble and were able to grab the barrel of the gun and point it downward, but one or two shots were fired into the ground without hitting anyone. The men disarmed Noble, who then grabbed one of the hunting knives and lashed out at the two men. The two men then wrestled with Noble, who was then taken to the ground by the patrons and rendered unconscious. He was later transported to Florida Hospital Flagler, where he was treated for minor injuries and released. The two patrons injured during the incident have been identified as Vassili Mironov, 28, and Roman Dubinsechi, 23, both of Palm Coast. Mironov

was stabbed near the the left eye and received lacerations to both his left and right hands. He was transported to Halifax Hospital in Daytona Beach, where he was treated and later released. Dubinsechi sustained moderate lacerations to one of his arms and refused treatment at the scene. Noble was booked into the Flagler County Inmate Facility around 6 a.m. Sunday. He is being held on no bond on the attempted first-degree murder charge. Noble is also being held on $60,000 on three charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He is awaiting first appearance.

Local farmers are concerned about increasing costs of operation, public perception of farming, environmental issues and the regulation that often comes with them, Flagler County Agricultural Extension Agent Mark Warren said in a presentation at Monday’s Flagler County Board of County Commissioners meeting. The county’s agricultural extension service has been surveying farmers to determine their needs and implement strategic planning to help keep the county’s agricultural industry competitive. Flagler County’s farms are familyoperated, and are part of what gives the county its appeal, Warren said. “It’s just a part of what makes Flagler County unique, part of what draws people to our county,” he said. “It’s the aesthetic appearance of our county; it’s the rural setting. It’s the slowed-down pace.” Agriculture also has a $303 million impact in Flagler County, Warren said, and local farmers’ needs vary depending on the type of farming they do. To inventory their concerns, the extension office and 23 volunteers contacted 48 of the 82 Flagler County farms listed on a 2007 USDA census. Some of the smaller ones couldn’t be reached. Of the 48 contacted, 30 replied. “Thirty people doesn’t sound like a lot, but it represents over 20,000 acres of our agricultural land in our county,” Warren said. “Our focus is to address those needs that they identify,” Warren said. “This tool is probably the best way that I’ve ever seen to gather that type of information.” Some farmers are interested in marketing their products abroad or branching into eco-tourism and other recreational activities, initiatives the extension office could advise them on, Warren said.

‘dogs do not attack for no reason’ By Jonathan Simmons | News Editor

Kids, mom hospitalized after vicious dog attack Two young children and their mother were mauled March 12 by a large dog that got out of its cage at Second Chance Rescue in Bunnell, where the mother is a volunteer, according to a Flagler County Sheriff’s Office report. A sheriff’s deputy who saw the three in the emergency room after the attack wrote in his case report that the boy’s “face had already started to swell and discolor from the bruising and his eye socket appeared to be damaged,” and that the little girl was “lying in another hospital bed with blood soaking through her bandages” and “crying in pain.” Their mother, 27-year-old Palm Coast resident Amanda Andrews, had blood leaking down her face and neck and “appeared to be in shock,” the deputy wrote. She told deputies that she’d left that her 3-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter in the family’s Toyota Sienna with the windows rolled down as she went to do some shelter work. But then the dog, which she described to deputies as a black and white pit bull, broke out of its cage and barreled toward the van. It jumped into a passenger-side window, and “went straight to her son who was sitting in the middle row of the van and latched on to his head, dragging him to the floor of the vehicle,” according to the report. Andrews tried to pull the dog off her son as it repeatedly bit his face, and “she had to grab the dog’s mouth and pry it open using her hands to free her son, at which time the dog turned on her, biting her in the face and neck,” according to the report.

She finally got ahold of the animal and dragged it back to its cage, where she secured it and ran for help. But the dog got out again and ran back to the van, jumping through the open passenger door and attacking Andrews’ daughter, “grabbing her by her shoulder and whipping her to the floor.” Andrews grabbed the dog again and put it in another holding area, then got in the van and called for help. Paramedics took the family to Florida Hospital Flagler, and a Flagler County Animal Control employee took the dog for quarantine at the Flagler Humane Society. He told the deputy investigating the case that animal control would also conduct an investigation. Andrews and the children were in stable condition at the hospital by the time the deputy wrote up his report, but their injuries were extensive. “The paramedics stated that Amanda had lacerations and puncture wounds on her left temple, behind her left ear and on her arms,” the deputy wrote. Paramedics told the deputy that the boy “was in the worst condition, with a right eye puncture, a tear in the upper and lower parts of his mouth along with a large puncture under his chin,” and that he “also had puncture marks and deep lacerations to his right upper eye, along with missing a tooth in his mouth and multiple lacerations to his face and upper body,” according to the report. The little girl “had puncture wounds to the front and rear of her right shoulder and laceration on the same side,” the

deputy wrote. The deputy inspected the vehicle, and wrote that he “observed large scratches and muddy dog prints on the passenger side door and muddy dog prints on the passenger side seat along with dog prints leading to the back of the vehicle” and “blood splatter on the seats and ceiling along with large pools of blood on the floor and pieces of clothing in the vehicle.”

Second Chance’s response

In a statement posted on its Facebook page, Second Chance Rescue berated the press for reporting that the dog was a pit bull — information that comes from the Sheriff’s Office report — saying that “all the media cares about is a juicy story that exploits people.” The statement says the dog is not a pit bull, and that dogs are too often misidentified as pits in stories about dog attacks. Flagler Humane Society Director WadeCarotenuto also said the dog appears to

be a mixed breed. “We don’t know what the dog is,” she said. “It’s very mixed. He could have pit bull in him, he could have lab, boxer. There’s not a purebred in the lineage any time in recent history.” Second Chance Rescue’s statement said the dog was dropped off by a homeless man, and that it initially seemed friendly. “A week ago, a homeless man showed up out our gate with a LAB BOXER mix and he was losing his car that he has lived in with the dog,” the statement reads. “The dog was friendly and vetted so we agreed to take it. Last night, one of our volunteers and her children were there, and she was letting him out to potty like she has all week and he bit them. He did NOT break out of his cage like the news said.” The statement said the attack was “not the dog’s fault,” and that “dogs do not attack for no reason,” and blames the Flagler Humane Society because the dog’s homeless owner told Second Chance he’d wanted to leave the dog at the Humane Society but couldn’t afford a $150 fee. Wade-Carotenuto, the Flagler Humane Society director, said the Flagler Humane Society asks for a $150 fee when people surrender large dogs, but that “more often than not, they don’t have it, so we ask them, ‘Is there anything you could do to donate for their care?’” Some, she said, put in a few hours of volunteer time. Wade-Carotenuto said the dog who committed the attack Wednesday will be euthanized. There’s no owner fighting for him, and no one likely to want to adopt him. “Unfortunately, there’s not much choice,” she said.

FAMILY PROMISE GRADUATE JOINS BOARD Flagler Promise of Flagler County graduate Sara Conway has returned to the nonprofit as a member of its board of directors. Her role is to offer the perspective of someone who has gone through the process. “I think that when people hear from someone who has been through the program, it means more,” she said. “It sparks something, and I’m glad that I can give that.” Since graduating from the program in March 2013, Conway has maintained a stable living situation for herself and her two children; enrolled back into Daytona

asked them to leave. They had no place to go, and not enough money to pay for the up-front two months of rent, or rent and deposit, that many rentals required. So Sandra and Isaiah Valentine packed their belongings into a storage unit and began sleeping in the car, keeping with them only the clothes they needed for the next few days. But homelessness proved expensive. With no place to cook, the two had to eat a lot of fast food, and the cost added up. “It’s not like I could go grocery shopping,” Valentine said. “I had to buy food outside, and I had to provide breakfast, lunch and dinner, so it made it difficult to save money.” Isaiah, a strong student, be-

Valentine was afraid to tell anyone what had happened, fearing McDonald’s might fire her and the Department of Child and Family Services might take Isaiah away if the agency found out the two were homeless. But after about a month, school staff noticed. They referred Valentine to the Flagler School District’s Families in Transition program for homeless children, which put Valentine and Isaiah in a Best Western for four days and connected them with Family Promise.

Going back to school was something Conway says resulted from a conversation with Jim Morelewicz. “It just meant a lot to me that Jim and the other board members thought that I could contribute to Family Promise in a new way,” Conway said. She added: “Family Promise is so important to me; once I graduated the program, I felt that I lost something. To be a part of Family Promise again means so much.

mormon missionaries By Brian McMillan | Executive Editor

Bunnell’s first ‘sister’ since 1970s Six months ago, three 19-yearold women all had the same realization at the same moment, in different parts of the country. Last October, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced in a worldwide broadcast that the age for becoming a missionary was going to change. Traditionally, Mormon men leave for two-year missions at 19, and women can serve for 18 months at age 21. That age is now 18 and 19, respectively. As it has always been for church members, a mission is seen as an obligation for men but an option for women. As a result of the age change, the number of missionaries worldwide has grown from 58,000 a year ago to about 85,000 now. The number of Mormon missionaries assigned to Flagler County has increased from two to four for the first time since 1990, thanks to more women deciding to serve. Camille McClellan, 19, watched the broadcast from Palm Coast. She hadn’t been planning on serving a mission, thinking that she would likely be too engrossed in college by the time she turned 21. But as soon as she heard that the age had been lowered, “My mind was set. I was like, ‘I’m going.’” Since then, the Flagler Palm Coast High School graduate has been working to earn money to serve in her assigned city of Boise, Idaho. It costs about $400 per month to be a missionary regardless of the city. To reduce in part the burden on her parents, Camille has sold Cutco knives,

Brian McMillan

Camille McClellan, a graduate of FPC, will soon be a Mormon missionary, like Ashley Jensen and Toree Jensen, both from Utah. done a lot of babysitting and has been working full time at Tee Times USA, in Flagler Beach. She will be just the second woman to become a “sister missionary” from the Bunnellbased congregation since Brenda Tucker Boyd in the late 1970s.

The two Jensens

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, in Riverton, Utah, Toree Jensen had a similar experience when she heard the October 2013 announcement. “It kind of messed up with my plans,” she said with a laugh. She felt inspired to put her art school plans on hold but still wants to pursue a career in typography and advertising when she returns. Similarly, Ashley Jensen (no relation), of Spanish Fork, Utah, never planned to be a missionary. Then she heard the announcement and changed her

mind. “I thought that going on a mission was the most important thing I could do right now,” she recalled. When she returns home from her assignment in Florida, she wants to study sports medicine and become an occupational therapist. The two Jensens, Toree and Ashley, are now serving together in Flagler County. They wear identical name tags that say, “Sister Jensen,” so they get a lot of “Jensen squared” jokes. They work from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day, talking to as many people as possible about the teachings of Jesus Christ. Only about one out of every 12 people they talk to actually want to hear what they have to say, Ashley said. But even when they don’t teach people about the Mormon church, they still have rewarding experiences, she said. On Ashley’s first day in town,

they met a woman who agreed to have the two sister missionaries pray for her brother. Days later, the woman called them again and said her brother had died. “She thanked us in tears, and that was just an eye-opener with her, because we didn’t know what she was going through,” Ashley said. Toree added: “It wasn’t sorrowful tears, but tears of joy and peace.” “That really touched both of us,” Ashley said. “I just love the people, and being out here makes me happy because I get to see how other people come closer to God. “Whether it be through me or someone else, that’s what brings happiness.”

So long, farewell

Camille occasionally drives the two Jensens around town to appointments as she prepares for her own missionary work. “You have to buy clothes and buy a suitcase, but the most important thing for me is just becoming,” she said. “I’ve been studying the scriptures and praying and trying to learn as much about the gospel as I can before I go.” She’s also preparing for a talk she will deliver to the congregation at 10 a.m. on her last Sunday in town, March 23. It’s a tradition in the church for a departing missionary to address the congregation at the church, 402 N. Palmetto St., in Bunnell, right by Bunnell Elementary School. The public is invited.

8 a.m. County Road 75. Missing person. A 14-year-old Bunnell boy decided he’d follow love anywhere — even across state lines, even without telling his parents, and even if he’d never actually met the girl he was running off with. The teen disappeared early Thursday morning, and his parents called the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office at about 8 a.m., according to a Sheriff’s Office report. They told deputies their son usually didn’t leave home without permission. But the mother also told deputies her son had used her phone to text with a girl, and a deputy began tracing the number, according got the report. A deputy checked around the outside of the house for the teen, then stopped by local convenience stores to see if he’d turned up there. No luck. FireFlight, the county’s emergency operations helicopter, searched for the boy from the air, but couldn’t find him. Neither could deputies searching the area with all-terrain motorcycles. Neither could bloodhounds brought in from the Tomoka Correctional Institution. Finally, the teen turned up — and not alone — about 200 miles away, in Liberty City, Ga. He was with the 15-year-old girl he’d been texting with, who he’d met on the Internet. It turns out that though the boy had run off, he hadn’t done it on foot. He’d had a ride provided by the girl, who had taken her parents’ car without permission and driven all the way from Anderson, S.C., down to Florida to pick him up, according to the report. On their way north, the two had stopped at Ripley’s Believe It or Not to ask an acquaintance of the boy’s father for gas money, begging him not to tell the boy’s father.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s … vanished

7:32 p.m. Richfield Lane. 911 call. A woman called 911 Thursday to report that she saw a plane with its wing on fire heading toward the Flagler County airport. She stayed on the line while the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office dispatched deputies to the airport. But the airport’s tower had no information on an aircraft emergency, and deputies saw no burning aircraft. They determined the call was “unfounded,” according to an incident report. Law enforcement officers in Georgia stayed with the teens as their parents came to pick them up.

Don’t mind the pot, Officer 9:49 p.m. First block of Pine Hill Lane. Narcotics. A deputy stopped a car for driving at night without its headlights on. An 18-year-old in the rear left seat asked if he could get out of the car to smoke a cigarette during the traffic stop. The deputy told him he could. But as the young man stood up to get out of the car, a nickel-sized wad of marijuana fell onto the ground at his feet. Deputies also found loose pieces of pot in his pocket and on the seat of the car where he’s been sitting. The arrested him for possession of marijuana.

Saturday, March 15

No, Officer, you can’t search my marijuana-laden car 11:02 a.m. Pine Lake Parkway and Commerce Boulevard. Narcotics. A deputy stopped a white Ford Explor-

er for speeding. He asked for permission to search the car, but the driver wouldn’t consent to a search. So the deputy walked his police dog around the outside of the car, and the dog “indicated a positive hit for possible narcotics,” according to an arrest report. The deputy and another deputy searched the car, and found a glass jar of marijuana and a digital scale with marijuana residue under one of the seats. The pot weighed 34.9 grams. The deputies arrested the driver for possession of drug paraphernalia and more than 20 grams of marijuana.

Purse on car seat + open car window = bad idea 5:09 p.m. 5000 block of State Road 100. Theft. A woman called the Sheriff’s Office to say someone stole her credit card. She said she’d left her Coach purse sitting on the front seat of her Kia while she shopped at a local department store. Her daughter, who sits in the back seat, had left a rear window slightly open. When the woman got back to the car, the back window was rolled almost all the way down, though she “didn’t think anything of it at the time.” She got in the car to leave, then realized the contents of her purse had been strewn all over the backseat and floorboard. A credit card was missing. The woman’s husband contacted the card company and discovered someone used th card at a gas station on State Road 100. Deputies went to the gas station to view surveillance video, but the manger who knows how to use the cameras wasn’t there, so they planned to return later. There was no damage to the Kia, and the card was the only thing stolen. — Compiled by Jonathan Simmons, using arrest reports from the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office

A Palm Coast man who ran a Ponzi scheme was sentenced Wednesday to five years in prison followed by 20 years of probation, and ordered to pay $3 million in restitution to his victims at a rate of $100,000 a year after his release. “Ponzi schemes devastate the victims and their families, leaving many financially ruined,” State Attorney R.J. Larizza said in a new release. “The judge’s sentence should serve as a reminder to those who engage in white collar crime, that they will face significant prison time as a consequence of their actions.” Anthony Fregenti, 42, pleaded guilty to 10 counts of sale of securities by an unregistered dealer, 10 counts of sale of unregistered securities, and securities fraud/investment fraud in September, according to the news release. The case came to the attention of law enforcement after one victim, Antonio Amaral Jr., reported the crime to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office. More later came forward, and many testified last Wednesday in the day-long hearing. Fregenti had told them that if they invested with him, he would purchase exotic cars and high-end motorcycles to sell to customers in Saudi Arabia — including a prince — for a large profit. But there was no Saudi royal client, and for Fregenti’s victims, there was no return on their investments. One victim was a neighbor of Fregenti who’d befriended him, and others knew him from his phony store-front business, Dark Hawk Enterprises. Fregenti paid $300,000 back to the victims before the sentencing hearing, but “that was merely a drop in the bucket to how much Fregenti still owes the victims,” Assistant State Attorney Jennifer Dunton said in the news release.

Talk to your neighbors, then talk to me

Auditors have given the city finances a high rating in the past, but one problem area has always been the enterprise funds of the city-run tennis center and golf course. The Palm Coast City Council on Tuesday unanimously voted to amend its fund balance policy, which will eliminate the a minimum level of fund balance required and also continue to support the Palm Coast Tennis Center and the Palm Harbor Golf Club “as needed” from the general fund. For the city to meet the current fund balance policy for the Palm Coast Tennis Center and the Palm Harbor Golf Course, the city would transfer about $150,000 of tax revenues that would simply sit in the bank and couldn’t be utilized for other governmental needs, Palm Coast Finance Director Chris Quinn said. The City Council approved the option with a 5-0 vote, but City Councilman Jason DeLorenzo said he was only agreeing to the option “for now.” He said: “I think — philosophically — we’re getting a whole lot closer to understanding that these are city amenities and probably should be treated like every other city amenity. But I think keeping it under closer scrutiny for a little bit longer is OK.”

SCHOOL BOARD By Jonathan Simmons | News Editor

‘Cottages’ proposed for county parks

Jonathan Simmons

Frank Meeker, Charlie Ericksen and the rest of the county commissioners appeared to be in favor of the proposal at a workshop Monday, March 17.

The cottages, renting out at an average rate of $85 to non-FDEP employees, would be simple, but not rustic: they’d have cable, high-speed Internet and kitchenettes with dishwashers. They would be based loosely on the eco-friendly, mass-produced “Katrina Cottages” developed for people who lost homes after Hurricane Katrina, but the design and construction would be completed locally. Promotional material in the cottages would direct visitors to local guides for fishing, horseback riding, canoeing and other outings. Researchers from the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center and a number of Florida universities expressed interest in using the cottages as a base for field research. “We’ve been promoting nature-based tourism for 20 years here, and this is in line with what we want to do,” Commission Chairman George Hanns said.

Flagler Schools is rolling out districtwide voluntary pre-kindergarten so parents who would like their child to attend VPK can bring them to their home-zoned school. The program, available to any child who is 4 years old on or before Sept. 1, provides 540 free instruction hours. The classes will follow the Flagler County School Board calendar, but session will be three hours long, and parents can choose a morning or afternoon session. “Wrap around” care before and after VPK classes will be available for a fee. The proposed fee is $60 per week but might change. Reduced fee options would be available for families with economic hardships. The wrap-around time will include additional instruction. A pilot program offered at Bunnell Elementary would include full days of instruction on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and offer wraparound care on Monday and Tuesday. The district is also currently signing up children for summer VPK. Parents with children who will attend kindergarten in the coming school year but have not already attended a VPK program can register their children for the 300-hour sum-

mer program by calling 437-7584. The classes will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday from June 9 to Aug. 8. The VPK slots will be offered on a firstcome, first-serve basis. Belle Terre Elementary can take 66 kids, Bunnell Elementary 88, Old Kings Elementary 44, Rymfire 88 and Wadsworth 88.

Science-whiz students recognized

In other business Tuesday, the Flagler County School Board recognized students from Wadsworth Elementary School and Matanzas High School who represented the county at regional and state Science Olympiad competitions. Wadsworth’s STEM team placed first at the Science Olympiad Competition at Matanzas High School. Matanzas High School’s Science Olympiad Team placed third overall in state regionals, and also competed at the state competition at University of Central Florida Orlando on March 15. The sixth-grade Wadsworth team took seventh place out of 42 middle schools for the Robo Cross robotics event, and Matanzas took ninth place out of 42 high schools for the Compound Machines event.

FLAGLER CHAMBER

The language of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection proposal is enticing: Imagine, it says, coming to Flagler County and staying in a cottage on the banks of a river, where you can “grill by the water’s edge or try your luck fishing” or “sit in a remarkable coastal oak hammock … and let the deer, birds, and other wildlife welcome you to a new level of serenity.” The Flagler County Commission can imagine it, and in a Monday workshop authorized County Administrator Craig Coffey to move forward with researching a plan to add environmentally-friendly cottages at Princess Place Preserve and the River to Sea Park. The project would start with three cottages at Princess Place constructed in part to house researchers from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which would contribute $330,000 in grant money for the Princess Place cottages and receive reduced rates on rentals for up to 140 days per year. Another $60,000 of the estimated $390,000 required for the first three cabins would come from passive park funds the county has set aside from developer contributions and conservation easements. If the three two-bedroom cottages were successful, more could be added at Princess Place — up to nine — and also at the River to the Sea Park, serving visiting scientists from universities and research institutes as well as tourists. “We don’t have the Daytona 500, we don’t have the Super Bowl, and we aren’t Las Vegas,” County Administrator Craig Coffey said. “So this kind of looks at what we could do.”

With four separate commercial buildings totaling in excess of 25,000 square feet and encompassing a complete city block, this former charter school is a slam dunk! Great location for office or retail just .1 mile west of the US1 and SR 100 intersection. Price just Reduced to $995,000

The high school and local businesses will be accessible throughout the project, but Bulldog Drive will be closed to through through-traffic. Drivers heading to the Central Park area of Town Center should seek another route or follow the marked detour.

Two Palm Coast residents and another man were injured last Wednesday night after they were struck by a drunk driver while walking across U.S. 1 in Volusia County, according to a report by the Florida Highway Patrol. Sherry Ann Pyle, 44 and Dale Cicero, 52 — both Palm Coast residents — were walking west across the street at a median break at about 11:30 p.m. with another man, 61-year-old Daniel Reilley. Troopers aren’t yet sure where Reilley is from. Eunice Cich, 52, was driving south on U.S. 1 toward Airport Road in her Honda pickup truck when the “three pedestrians walked into the direct path of” the truck, which struck all three of them, according to the FHP report. All three were taken to Halifax Medical Center. Pyle was listed in critical condition, and Cicero and Reilley were listed in serious condition, according to the report. Cich, an Ohio resident, was arrested for driving under the influence. She was not injured in the crash.

Construction work will close lanes on State Road 100 east of Bulldog Drive at night until April 10. The closures will begin at 7 p.m. and last until 6 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays, as crews work on a two-lane reconstruction on Bulldog Drive and add a northbound left turn lane into Flagler Palm Coast High School, according to a city news release. Workers will also move the main entrance of the school, replace a traffic signal at State Road 100 and Bulldog Drive and add turn lanes on State Road 100.

+ Palm Coast crash leaves biker in serious condition Careless driving led to a crash on the morning of Saturday, March 15, on State Road A1A just north of Jungle Hut Road, leaving a motorcyclist in serious condition. The Florida Highway Patrol report states that Thomas Cromwell, 57, of Palm Coast, was traveling northbound at 11:10 a.m. on A1A and Magnolia Road, in a Ford 4D. He had stopped to allow another vehicle turn left in front of him, when Olivia Kitch, 30, of Roseboro, N.C., driving a Dodge Ram, rear-ended him. The collision knocked Cromwell’s vehicle into the southbound lane, and caused it to strike the left side of a HarleyDavidson motorcycle being driven by Nicky Tyrone Chesser, 63, of Middleburg. Chesser was flown to Halifax Hospital because of injuries, which were identified as “severe.” None of the three drivers was under the influence of alcohol. Chesser was not wearing a helmet, according to the FHP report. The damage done to Chesser’s Harley-Davidson was $15,000. Cromwell’s Ford sustained $5,000 in damage. Kitch’s Ram was damaged in the amount of $100. Kitch is being charged with careless driving.

Farewell, Palm Coast It really does seem like just yesterday that I was sitting at Executive Editor Brian McMillan’s kitchen table. It was well after 1 a.m., and we were editing the very first pages of the Feb. 4, 2010, ANDREW issue of the Palm Coast O’BRIEN Observer. It was the beginning of something great. We’d make changes in mechanical pencil. Often, the lead would snap off because I was pressing too hard — probably because I was nervous and my stories needed a lot of work. I’d click some more lead out with my left thumb, and then get back to editing. The changes were then sent off to the layout department. By sent off, I mean we’d walk the pages into the McMillans’ home office where Brian’s wife, Hailey, would have the pages up on the screen. We’d go over the changes and then move on to the next batch of pages. This went on for a few weeks until we figured out a new, more efficient process. Four years and more than 225 issues of the Palm Coast Observer later, the March 20 issue is my final one. It’s hard to put the last fourplus years into 375 (or so) words. But I can certainly try. Thanks to the community’s acceptance of us as a newspaper, we have been able to tell a lot of stories. In the Sports section, we have written words about winning and losing, we have interviewed players with smiles after winning championships and players with tears after suffering defeat. From homelessness to heart transplants, tragedy to triumph, the Sports section has been able to connect players and readers, fans of the game and people who just want to read a story about their neighbor. Like we have said all along, the mission of the Palm Coast Observer — especially the Sports section — is to tell you stories about your neighbors and your neighborhoods. I wouldn’t have been able to tell those stories, though, if players and coaches didn’t open up to me. And for that, I will always be grateful. Sitting at my own kitchen table four years later as I write this last column, just by looking at the clock I can see the progress we’ve made: Fortunately, it’s 10 a.m., not 1 a.m. Thanks for following the last four years, thanks for reading, and — most importantly — thanks for letting me tell your stories. Farewell, Palm Coast.

CHALK UP THE WINS

Andrew O’Brien

Tossing the grip chalk in the weight room, Carl Lilavois (left) and Marcus Polite look to channel their inner LeBron James by winning a championship ring next month as they head into the heart of the boys weightlifting schedule. Lilavois and Polite are both seniors at FPC.

FPC weightlifters Carl Lilavois and Marcus Polite know the feeling of defeat. They’re channeling that emotion into lifting weight — a lot of weight — as they eye state titles.

S

itting on a couch in an athletics office at Flagler Palm Coast on Tuesday, seniors Marcus Polite and Carl Lilavois glanced up at all the newspaper stories framed on the wall. There were stories and pictures of teams and individuals all with something in common: They have enjoyed success. That’s why their stories are remembered. And on that wall is exactly where Polite and Lilavois want their pictures and stories to be one day.

Defeat is a bitter taste

Polite has been on the weightlifting team since he was a freshman. For the first three years, he competed in the 139-pound class. This year, he is competing in the 154-pound class. Lilavois is in just his second year on the weightlifting team, and he has lifted in the 139-pound class both years. Last year, Polite won the conference and district meets, advancing to regionals. Then things didn’t go as planned: Polite bombed out at the regional meet, meaning he only successfully completed one of his six lifts (a bench press). He didn’t place or advance to states. In fact, he has never advanced to states. Depressed at how quickly another successful season came to an end, Polite was down on his luck. He was depressed and wasn’t even sure he was going to

FOR STARTERS

THURSDAY, MARCH 20, 2014

You have to go into each meet thinking it’s the Olympics and treat it like (the other lifters) are the best people you’ve ever seen. — Marcus Polite, senior on the Flagler Palm Coast weightlifting team

lift his senior season. “I was thinking that I wasn’t good, that I wasn’t clutch,” Polite said Tuesday. “But I talked to (FPC coach Duane Hagstrom), and he said don’t worry about it and told me to keep lifting. He worked with me, and that’s just been paramount.” Lilavois’ path to defeat was a bit different. Polite and Lilavois have actually been friends since playing football together in middle school. All of last season, they lifted in the same weight class. Polite outlifted Lilavois in most of the meets, including conference and districts, where Lilavois finished second and third, respectively. But after advancing out of regionals after finishing fourth, Lilavois set personal-records in both the bench press and the clean-and-jerk at the state meet, hitting all six lifts. “I had a great day,” Lilavois said, recalling last year’s state meet in his mind. “I broke three records that year, and it was a great year.” But he missed medaling (the top six at states receive medals) by 5 pounds. That’s something he still thinks about today. He

can relate to his friend’s frustration. “I’ve been there before, and I’ll tell you that it sucks,” Lilavois said. “Having that feeling knowing that it was right there, knowing I was 5 pounds away from getting a medal. All of that for nothing.”

History books; more to come?

After getting back up from last season’s defeats, both Polite and Lilavois have enjoyed successful, record-setting seasons. Last week, Polite finished first in the conference. He owns the 154-pound weight class record in the bench press, at 305 pounds. He has also tied the 260-pound clean-and-jerk record. Lilavois finished third at the conference meet in the 139-pound class. He owns both the bench press record (270 pounds) and the clean-and-jerk record (245 pounds). The two have set those records because they’re strong. But also because they are very driven individuals, FPC coach Duane Hagstrom said. “They don’t like to be beaten and are always working to im-

prove,” Hagstrom said. “They are both extremely coachable and are usually the last ones to leave the weight room each day.”

Put a ring on it?

The district weightlifting competition is set for Monday, March 24. Both Polite and Lilavois know that’s the beginning to a month-long journey toward state titles. Hagstrom said the two seniors have what it takes to contend for a ring. “They have both learned that this sport isn’t just about being physically strong, it’s about being technically sound and mentally confident,” he said. Polite and Lilavois both said they need to continue lifting with chips on their shoulder. They can’t get complacent either, they said. “It’s really easy to get complacent when you’re winning and breaking records,” Polite said. “You walk into a meet and you think it’s easy and you lose and your season is over. You have to go into each meet thinking it’s the Olympics and treat it like (the other lifters) are the best you’ve ever seen.”

Snuffy cartoonist teaches the drawing basics Pup and Carl the Cat were a few of the characters children learned to draw Friday morning at the Flagler County Public Library. John Rose, cartoonist for King Feature’s popular comic strip, “Barney Google and Snuffy Smith,” taught children the basics of cartooning at the event presented by the Friends of the Library. The Snuffy Smith comic is the second longest running comic, being published for 95 years. Smith is the third cartoonist to draw the strip. He took it over in 1998. “As a cartoonist, you draw a lot, but you also have to write your jokes,” he told children in the crowd. “Studying English and writing is just as important as continuing to draw.”

SHANNA’S KITCHEN By Shanna Fortier | Community Editor

Grandma’s house: family, food and picture albums

0002058334

family tends to visit on the regular to get away from the blistering cold of not living in the Sunshine State. Last week, my cousin and his girlfriend stopped in at my grandma’s for a couple days. Because of the chilly weather, we skipped the beach and spent our cousin time sitting in grandma’s living room, joking around and looking at old pictures. I sat on the floor, leaned against the couch, taking my time, looking through each album, snapping pictures with my phone of my grandparents’ wedding pictures, pictures of me as a baby and funny pictures of my mom when she was a child. My cousin and his girlfriend sat on the couch, he reminiscing about the past

and she teasing him about his coolkid spiky do. (She fit in very well.) My sister sat next to me furiously flipping the pages of each album saying, “I’m not in this one!” And my toddler nephew grabbed hold of a new album, one without any pictures in it yet, one that has been designated for pictures of him. After a full lunch, Grams pulled out the cake. It was a different kind of cake, not one filled with chocolate and sweetness, but one that more resembled a carrot cake. While all of us remarked on how delicious and sunshine-like the cake was, Grams simply said, in a way that made the family get-together complete, it’s really easy, and she passed along the recipe.

dog isn’t well behaved enough that you can control it on board without a leash, don’t take it along. If you do take your dog on the water, get a doggy life vest. “Keep barking under control,” the guide continues. This is obvious in a home, but it also applies outdoors where people out picnicking, fishing or enjoying a perfect sunset don’t want to be disturbed by incessant barking. “Clean up waste,” it advises. “Walking into the front yard and stepping in a pile of poop from a neighbor’s dog can be upsetting.” This tip also applies on the trail. There’s almost nothing more annoying on a hike than stepping in a hamburger-size glob of doggy doo and having to stop to scrape it from your shoes, then continue onward plagued by the inevitable stink of the residue that doesn’t easily come off. Carry bags and pack out that poop! Petco offers training advice for dog owners struggling to get a leash on their pup’s behavior.

There’s a common refrain I often hear from irresponsible dog owners while I’m out jogging or hiking. “Don’t worry,” they say as their unleashed pooch comes barreling towards me, “he’s friendly.” And, of course, the dog may be. But that isn’t the point. Lots of folks don’t like dogs — friendly or not — and don’t want to be approached by one. And lots of folks walk dogs that don’t like other dogs and don’t want to be approached by one, and might bite if they are. But too often, especially in natural areas like parks, people let their dogs wander. So I was pleased to see that Petco released a tip on “pettiquite,” which means, basically, how to make sure your pet isn’t a nuisance to the rest of the world. Most of it’s pretty simple stuff, but judging by the bad poochie (and owner) behavior I so often see outdoors, some people need a reminder. “Keep dogs leashed at all times while at parks and in other dog-friendly public places. Excited dogs who are off-leash may run and jump on people or children or hurt themselves by running away from their pet parent,” the guide says. In parks near the water, there’s another danger: alligators. They don’t generally hunt people, but they do go after dogs. Be especially careful about letting a dog approach and sip from a river or lake, even if the dog is leashed. A gator could explode out of that water and make a meal of your pet. One exception to this rule, of course, is on board boats and paddlecraft: leashing a dog that’s on a vessel can be dangerous because the leash could get tangled during a capsize and drown the dog.

+ Parade of Homes: Del Construction a big winner A home built by the Palm Coastbased DEL Construction company won the Parade of Homes’ top honor, as well as the grand award and Realtor’s choice award for its category. The five-bedroom home, called “The Telluride” and located on a five-acre plot at Flagler Beach Polo Club West, is 4,700 square feet. It has a heated pool, five-car garage, four bathrooms and a half bath, said DEL Construction owner Pete Lyden. “I don’t just do model homes; I’m a true design homebuilder,” he said. “My philosophy for building is getting the right team together. I have been using the same subcontractors for years, and it took a while to find them.” This was Lyden’s second year participating in the Parade of Homes, an annual event by the Flagler County Palm Coast Builders Association. This year, there were 28 entries. Lyden said it seemed like about 1,000 people showed up to visit the home, sometimes coming several times. Last year, one of DEL Construction’s homes won the grand award and was runner up for the Realtor’s choice award. For more information on the Parade of Homes or to view the entries online, visit flaglerparadeofhomes.com.

+ Coldwell Bank Premier Properties names Top Sales Associate, Top Listing Associate Residential real estate specialist Shellie Keever has been named Coldwell Banker Premier Properties, Palm Coast’s Top Sales Associate for February 2014. Kathy McEnaney was named Top Listing Agent for February 2014.

nity to be so hated by so many strangers who don’t “get,” or just flat out don’t “like,” you? Politicians know where I’m coming from here. City Manager Jim Landon and Supervisor of Elections Kimberle Weeks totally get it. They’ve basked in the sweet, sweet glow of public hatred many a time, and I’m sure they understand, as I do, its deep rewards. Just think about it: Who needs therapy to affirm their existence when they have that guy down the street writing in to explain why he loathed your latest story — you know: the one about hot dogs? Or how about the woman who kindly drops in to remind you to get off your high horse and stop making fun of tropical storm names? You just can’t buy that kind of attention. Don’t even get me started on the Facebook users who call for your immediate firing after each Top Five list you write about local food and drink. Having the chance to be so fiercely disliked by so many of my neighbors here in my hometown has been an absolute honor. The dirty looks at grocery stores, the subtle head-shaking across restaurants, the weekly words of discouragement in my inbox — these are memories I’ll take with me. No one can ever say I haven’t touched the lives of others in my community — because I keep a shoebox overflowing with my community’s hate mail under my bed to prove it. So, thanks for laughing with me, and at me, and about everything in life we’d drive ourselves crazy thinking about if we actually took it seriously. I’ve written thousands of words for this newspaper the past few years, but my favorites will always be the ones you wrote to me.

I’ve worked here at the Observer for three years. And during that time, I’ve published three separate farewell columns — this being the third. I know. It’s been a wild ride. You might remember when I started as the city’s token badboy journalist extraordinaire in 2011, breaking all the rules and MIKE CAVALIERE building what some in the public (my mom) have called a broad and ecstatic fan base. Then I became a writer-editor extraordinaire later, which led to my first farewell, when I was promoted to associate editor extraordinaire of the Ormond Beach Observer, before switching again (second farewell) to the position of multimedia director extraordinaire for both publications. Before I go any further, it might worth noting that adding “extraordinaire” to the end of every title I’ve held the past three years might have been my, not management’s, idea; and it’s possible it might never have actually been endorsed by the higher-ups and, so, is impossible to factcheck from my C.V. But like I told the interviewers at Embry-Riddle — where I’ve accepted a position in communications and start next week — that’s my business, thank you very much. I currently hold the record for most hate mail received by any reporter in the company’s history (see the bad-boy/breakingall-the-rules portion even higher). But in truth, this has been a pretty cool gig. In what other job do you have the opportu-

“But there is more to be done. We want what every great town has — a thriving downtown with shopping, dining and activities that have a unique character all their own. A place that welcomes both citizens and visitors and encourages them to return again and again.” Truilo hopes that on March 23, Taste of Ormond will show people locally and in surrounding communities that Ormond is a place they want to focus their activities. Included in the event, local restaurants Frappes North, Fusion 43, The Grind Gastropub, Lulu’s Oceanside Grill, Theia’s Pastries, Mia Dona, Cakery Creation, Einstein Bros. and a host of others will offer small plates with samples of their cuisine, while S.R. Perrott will provide a wine bar and a craft beer tasting. “Our town is growing and changing, and that’s the focus of the event,” Truilo said.

This popular 5K/10K event takes place Saturday at 8AM in Town Center’s Central Park. Whether you’re an accomplished marathon runner, a couch potato looking for a challenge or somewhere in between, all levels and ages can participate. Champion Chip timing is provided, and awards are given to the top three male and female finishers and the top three finishers in 13 age groups.

Kids are welcome; ages nine and under are free, and there will be a free quarter-mile kids’ fun run starting at 9AM. Students ages 10 to 17 receive a special discounted rate of $10 for the 5K and $15 for the 10K, thanks to sponsor Florida Hospital Flagler. Run for Your Life features both 5K and 10K courses. All participants begin from the same starting line, and 10K runners are directed to the second leg of their course before approaching the 5K finish line. Both circuits are certified by USA Track & Field (USATF Certified Course #

Snacks and water will be provided for runners/walkers after the event and awards will be given to the top finishers. For additional information, please visit www.flaglerchamber.org

Building Relationships Serving Up Two New A Handshake at a Time Events By Matt Dunn | Flagler Chamber VP of Tourism Thanks to the exceptional work of my predecessor Georgia Turner and our staff, tourism results for first quarter 2014 were a thrilling success. Tourist development tax collections are up 17% over 2013, and given the positive changes we’ve implemented recently, we expect collections will rise. Staff traveled to Tallahassee March 12 for Florida Tourism Day and to support legislative initiatives of our industry partners. We attended meetings of the Florida Association of Destination Marketing Organizations (FADMO) and the Florida Sports Foundation (FSF) to reinforce the importance of tourism to our state’s economy. During our FADMO meetings, we discussed Springs Protection, revisions to the RISE Agreement, Medical Tourism, Visit Florida’s budget, Film Project Tax Credits, Vacation Rental Properties and protected uses of the Tourist Development Tax. Additional support for the Florida Senior Games and funding levels of the License Plate Program were the primary topics with the FSF. We met with both House and Senate leaders to encourage their ongoing support for tourism initiatives. In 2013, 94.7 million out-of-state and international visitors came to Florida and research shows 20.1 million in-state travelers. Tourism generated $76.1 billion, one job for every 85 visitors, 23% of sales tax revenues and $4.6 billion in sales tax collections. As you can see, tourism matters to Florida’s economy! Our office spends a significant amount of time creating new relationships across all market segments and strengthening connections with industry friends to attract group-related business to our destination thus enhancing Florida’s growing tourism industry. Please contact us if you are a member of an industry association and travel to seminars, conferences or training sessions. We have opportunities and incentives to support and attract event directors and meeting planners. Let’s work together as a team and bring business home!

In April, the Chamber is serving up two new events to add to your calendar. The first is the Young Professionals Group Putt-Crawl on April 12. A “putt crawl” is one part networking, one part putt-putt golf and one GIANT part fun. The inaugural event kicks off at Veterans Park, where participants will get their putters, drink tickets/scorecard and a commemorative putt-crawl mug. From there, teams will “crawl” to participating restaurants and take swings at freestanding putt-putt holes. After they record their score, they pull off a ticket, grab a drink and move on to the next “hole.” The crawl will end at Finn’s Beachside Pub, where prizes will be awarded for best score, best hole sponsor and more. Call Tiffany Edwards for info at 386.437.0106. Flagler Restaurant Week is a new culinary celebration that replaces its one-night-only predecessor, Taste of Flagler. Flagler Restaurant Week will showcase the great restaurants, chefs and talent that make up our local gastronomic scene. Flagler Restaurant Week (FRW) gives local “foodies” and visitors a perfect opportunity to support participating restaurants by dining out between April 25 and May 9. This event will increase visibility for Flagler County restaurants and encourage diners to explore different establishments where special prix fixe menus will be offered. There are no passes, tickets or coupons for Restaurant Week. Diners simply visit participating restaurants over nine days to enjoy prix fixe breakfast, lunches and dinners. Diners can learn more and make reservations through a recently launched Flagler Restaurant Week website (www. flaglerrestaurantweek.com). A special FRW VIP Kick-Off party will be held Thursday, April 24 at 5:30PM at Marineland Dolphin Adventure. The $20 admission will include hors d’oeuvres, one drink ticket, music and great company, with Marineland’s dolphins and the ocean as backdrops. Tickets are on sale now at the Chamber at www.flaglerchamber.org. Like the Flagler Restaurant Week Facebook page for more updates.

February was a busy month for our government affairs efforts, chiefly because we hosted our first Flagler Votes Forum on 2014 for the City of Bunnell City Commission elections. This was the first time our committee has hosted a forum in Bunnell, and by all counts the feedback was positive. Our goal in hosting candidate forums is to give residents and local business owners the opportunity to hear where candidates stand on important issues. The committee comes up with potential questions to ask candidates and the final questions are kept confidential until the actual forum. Our policy of not sharing questions in advance ensures a level playing field and also gives the audience a chance to see how candidates “think on their feet” when talking about issues. Congratulations to Bunnell’s new City Commissioner Bonita Robinson and incumbent City Commissioner and Vice Mayor John Rogers on their elections. We look forward to working with you and the rest of the Bunnell City Commission.

Our committee will reconvene soon to plan a Flagler Votes Forum before the August primary election and another before the November general election. The legislative session has started in Tallahassee and we are monitoring a few bills that have been or will be introduced. While most of our government affairs work is local, it’s also important to build strong relationships with our representatives in Tallahassee. That’s why we are planning a one-day visit to Tallahassee on April 8 for “Flagler Day.” Rep. Hutson’s office will help coordinate our schedule for the day, and the intent is to bring 15 to 20 representatives from Flagler County and its business community to meet with legislators. Doing so, we hope, will help demonstrate that Flagler County is “open for business”! To find out more or to join us, please call me at 386-437-0106. We’re keeping an eye on a few local issues, one of which is paid parking in Flagler Beach. We plan to survey our Flagler Beach members for their thoughts but welcome your comments as well. Again, please contact me and let me know how the Chamber can help you and your business.

Today’s Customer Service Is Key to Tomorrow’s Growth

Commitment Fuels Our Success By David Fowler, Alliance Financial Partners | Flagler County Chairman Though it’s hard to believe that the first quarter is almost over, I’m delighted with the progress we’ve already made in 2014 and the positive momentum we expect to maintain for the next three quarters. Here’s a preview of some of the things we are and will be working on to make the Chamber a stronger and more vibrant organization: Our longstanding Business Issues Committee implements and directs our government affairs initiatives. With the help of our government affairs director, the committee advocates on behalf of members, identifies ways to increase engagement and examines ways to give the business community a more influential voice. Since 2014 will be a busy election year, expect this committee to monitor elections, follow issues and host candidate forums and programs to increase voter education and turnout. Economic development is an important focus for the Chamber. We have a positive working relationship with Flagler County’s Department of Economic Opportunity and collaborate with Helga van Eckert and her colleagues on a regular basis. Our Economic Alliance Council is very active and has representation from the Economic Opportunity Advisory Council, CareerSource of Flagler/ Volusia, Flagler County School Dis-

trict, SCORE, the Palm Coast Business Assistance Center and businesses throughout the county. The group recently completed an important economic development survey and will release results next month. As one of the county’s largest member-based organizations, the Chamber is committed to enhancing the quality of the member experience, which is also an important ongoing goal. Our Membership Committee continually looks for ways to attract, engage and retain members, while enhancing the benefits we offer, gathering feedback and implementing changes that allow us to serve members more efficiently and deliver greater value. New events and programs are a final area of focus for this year. Eggs & Issues, Networking 9s, Flagler Restaurant Week are some of the new events we have planned, in addition to Chamber traditions like Run For Your Life (this coming weekend), Think Flagler First luncheons, Creekside Festival, Business After Hours, Block Parties, YPG socials and the Jingle Ball. I am honored to serve as the Chamber’s 2014 Chairman, and am proud of the hard work and dedication I see from our members, volunteers and staff. Their dedication makes our Chamber’s engine run on all cylinders, and their commitment fuels our success. Thanks to these contributions of time and talent, our future is bright, as is our ability to make a difference by helping local businesses thrive. Let us know how we can help you.

By Tom Hellman | SCORE, www.score87.org Customer service is one of the most important ways a small business can distinguish itself from competitors. You have the unique opportunity to connect directly with your customers, furnish the products or services that meet their needs, help them with problems and follow up after the sale. This generates more than just sales; it also creates relationships that will not only keep those customers coming back, but also lead to referrals and new business. As a small business owner, you want your firm to be a “go-to” resource for your customers, the place they’ll turn to whenever they need a certain product or service, regardless of other options that may be available. To achieve that distinction, you have to develop loyalty among your customers. At first glance, that might seem easy to do; give them what they want, and they’ll come back, right? Not necessarily.

Customers always want to feel valued and know that their specific needs will receive special attention. But building customer loyalty has become more challenging with the convergence of trends like easy access to data about competitors, more price- or location-driven purchasing decisions due to economic factors and a greater expectation of value from that purchase. Fortunately, there are many tactics to foster customer loyalty that can be easily integrated into your day-to-day operations. A simple “thank you for your business” will go a long way, but so too will a personalized thank you note, especially in the digital age. Don’t cut and paste sentiments or use a form letter; think about that customer’s specific needs and let them know much you appreciate their business. Creating value will help boost loyalty. Ask customers if there is anything else you could do for them. Then, after they tell you, do it. You may also want to consider incentives such as discounts or freebies for frequent customers.

your voice

Review each customer “touch point”—your phone system, your website, your store—to determine the kind of reception customers get and how helpful each one is from the customer’s point of view. Make sure your employees also feel appreciated. When they feel good about working for you, they’ll provide customers with an even better experience. Even when your best efforts fall short and a customer goes elsewhere, you can still learn from the experience. Ask why they switched or left. If there’s something you can change or improve on, do it. You may not regain that customer, but you can use that input to better serve the ones you have and hope to attract in the future. To learn more about generating customer loyalty for your small business, contact SCORE “Mentors to America’s Small Business.” SCORE is a nonprofit organization in Flagler County that provides free, confidential business mentoring and training workshops to small business owners.
