Celebrating Local Tourism H.E.R.O.E.S. By Matt Dunn | Flagler Chamber VP of Tourism The first full week of May is annually recognized as National Travel and Tourism Week, a tradition first celebrated in 1984 and established by a Congressional joint resolution. Throughout the U.S., the travel community celebrates Tourism Week in many creative ways, from staging local rallies and conducting media outreach to securing proclamations and resolutions from local legislative bodies. In Flagler County, our celebratiion includes honoring local HEROES (Hospitality Employee Recognition of Excellent Service) each May, a tradition we’ve upheld for the past five years. The Flagler HEROES Award Ceremony was held at the Hilton Garden Inn Monday, May 12th with an enthusiastic audience of representatives from the local hospitality industry. As part of the breakfast meeting, awards were distributed to four front line employees went above and beyond to make sure guest visits to Flagler County were both enjoyable and memorable. Those receiving awards for their outstanding contributions for the past year were (from left to right): Ilda Guilhermino - Hammock Beach Resort; Gee Borja - Legacy Vacation Club; Zsoka Schaeffer - Hilton Garden Inn and Jeri Harper - Palm Harbor Golf Club.

red light cameras By Jonathan Simmons | News Editor

Flagler Beach sides against angel statue City would consider a secular monument. Palm Coast resident Donna Lunsford envisions an angel statue at a public park in Flagler Beach, surrounded by trees and benches, serving as a beacon and a gathering spot for parents who have lost children. But when Lunsford — creator of the local group Parents in Mourning and owner of parentsinmourning.com — asked the Flagler Beach City Commission May 8 to give her the go-ahead to move forward with plans to place the statue on city property, the commission was unanimous in its opposition, citing concerns that the statue could be interpreted as government promotion of religion. “If something were to happen that one person gets offended by it, they don’t sue you, they sue the city, because the city is the one that owns the property, and the city is the one that allowed the image,” Commission Chairwoman Kim Carney said to Lunsford during the meeting. City Attorney Drew Smith said the angel image would fall in a legal gray area. “As we know, we’ve spent decades talking about the Ten Commandments at courthouses,” he said. “Some courts have said, ‘OK,’ some courts have said, ‘Get them down.’ It depends on the court.” Smith mentioned a recent Supreme Court case about prayer held at government meetings in the small town of Greece, New York. The court ultimately ruled the prayer permissible, he said, “but they still spent years and years and years in litigation, because somebody in that community was offended and hired a lawyer.” Lunsford first came before the City Commission in December with a request to place the statue in Veterans Park, a proposal criticized by city residents who said a park already dedicated to veterans would be the wrong place for the monument. Commissioner Jane Mealy said she was concerned about placing a religious image on

+ Betsy Tier named Volunteer of the Year Betsy Tier was the recipient of the Haven Hospice Volunteer of the Year Award for the Flagler County service area during the volunteer appreciation luncheon and awards event, at Vince Carter’s last month. Volunteers are a vital member of the Hospice Care Team. They provide companionship, support Betsy Tier and assistance to patients residing at home, in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, hospitals and any of Haven’s five, free-standing care centers. They also reach out to grieving families, help staff the Attic Resale stores and serve on special event committees.

+ Florida Hospital Flagler: 1.5 million volunteer hours

Savannah Stanier

+ Flagler 4-H member, 10, wins blue ribbon Flagler County 4-H member Savannah Stanier competed in the 4-H District VI events in Palatka last month and received a blue ribbon for her demonstration. Stanier, 10, is a member of the We Love to Learn 4-H Club, where members learn cooking and sewing skills under the guidance of their 4-H leader, Linda Spilling Markey. For her to be eligible to participate in the district, she had to first win a blue ribbon at the Flagler County event. District VI events include six counties: Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns.

In honor of National Healthcare Volunteer Week, the five Florida Hospitals in Volusia and Flagler counties recognized the volunteers who donate their time and talents to the hospitals. “This special week presents an opportunity to celebrate the everyday people who accomplish extraordinary things through service,” said Daryl Tol, Florida Hospital Volusia/Flagler CEO. “These community members are essential to the health care team as they give of their time freely and ask for nothing in return. We are so blessed to have such an incredible group of volunteers; they are a precious and important part of our team.” Florida Hospital Flagler hosted a volunteer appreciation luncheon at Halifax Plantation for more than 150 volunteers. The volunteers were recognized for having just surpassed providing 1.5 million hours of service. Florida Hospital Flagler has nearly 300 active volunteers assisting in 25 departments throughout the hospital. Since 2005, the volunteers have provided nearly 26,000 free blood pressure checks at the hospital and cared for nearly 6,000 guests in the Judith C. Macko Cancer Resource Library since it opened in 2010. Financially, this organization has donated more than $1 million to the hospital since 1983. For more information about volunteer opportunities at Florida Hospital Flagler, call 586-4234.

Maj. Sonia Byrne has been a COP volunteer since 2003. Over the past 10 years, Byrne has donated over 23,000 hours of her time. All other volunteers were commended for giving 200 or more hours of their time just this past year. “The 52 men and women who were recognized today have collectively donated over 27,000 hours of their time just this past year. They are a valuable asset to our community,” said Sheriff James L. Manfre. Since 2005, the COPs have worked approximately 260,000 hours, saving the county about $4,806,000.

+ Members of the Citizens Observer Patrol recognized Sheriff James L. Manfre recognized 52 members of the Citizens Observer Patrol April 28, for their dedicated service to the community and to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office. The mission of the COP organization is to make the neighborhoods of Flagler County as safe and secure as possible. The COPs report all suspicious activity to the Sheriff’s Office and aid deputies in traffic control, parades, funeral escorts and other special details. At the Palm Coast Substation, the COPs’ duties consist of fingerprinting, passing out information and gun licensing permits, filling requests for vacation house watches and other services provided to the community.

TOLD YOU SO

seaside salvo By Joey LoMonaco | Staff Writer

Graham eyes A1A Center Hollingsworth Gallery owner J.J. Graham is considering a plan with Flagler Schools. Two years ago this August, J.J. Graham spent 12 days in Przemysl, the secondoldest city in Poland. He had to leave behind two paintings when his residency was up. But what he left with — a vision of how art and community can become integrated, as well as a desire to innovate — are qualities that will serve the owner of Hollingsworth Gallery in his newest venture. Graham is close to striking a partnership with Flagler Schools to set up shop at the A1A Center in Flagler Beach. If that happens, he’ll move his classrooms and studios from his current location at City Marketplace under the new name, “Salvo Neoteric Art Project.” “I’ve heard different things,” said Graham of a timetable. The School Board “said that if we get something worked out, it can happen rather quickly. I know their calendar starts in July; if we could move in there before July, that would be ideal, because my idea would be to get artists and teachers in there right away to start bringing revenue in.” School Board member Sue Dickinson said the board consulted with Superintendent Jacob Oliva and suggested arranging a meeting between Graham and school attorney Kristy Gavin. “At that board meeting (May 6), our direction to the superintendent was to get the attorney and J.J. together to draw up the contract,” Dickinson said. That meeting could take place within the next couple weeks, she added. If Graham moves into the facility, interaction with students would begin right away. He envisions a robust internship program. “We would make that competitive,” he said. “We’d want to see that the students were really interested in the arts and wanted to be involved. It wouldn’t just be a hangout.” Instead, each student intern would

A Flagler Beach angel?

But at either city park, Smith said, the project would essentially have to become the city’s. If it wasn’t, the city risked making the park a “public forum” where anyone could request space for any message. To avoid that, the city would have to maintain the angel statue’s landscaping. The city would have to deal with graffiti on the angel. The city would have to repair the angel statue if it were damaged. At Thursday’s meeting, Mealy again objected. “Not everybody believes in angels,” she said, adding: “Especially if it’s going to be a city project, I really have trouble with it.” “This particular angel is for parents who have lost a child,” Lunsford replied. “But a Muslim parent could lose a child, or a Jewish parent cold lose a child, or an atheist parent could lose a child,” Mealy said. “I’m not opposed to all the rest of it; it’s beautiful. It’s the angel I have trouble with.” The idea of an angel statue for grieving parents isn’t Lunsford’s. “Angel of Hope” statues, also called “Christmas Box Angel” statues, have been springing up around the country, inspired by

I think we both get off on the ability to have that different canvas, that ability to work both inside and outside — which we don’t have at Hollingsworth. J.J. Graham on the opportunities he and Petra Iston envision at the A1A Center be paired with professional artists and learn design principles. “That would be priceless,” Graham said. “I couldn’t imagine having that opportunity — learning how to stretch canvas, learning mediums. They would have such an edge going into college, because you spend your first year of college learning all that stuff. They’d be way ahead of the curve.” Striking a deal with Graham would allow the School Board an alternative to leveling an adjacent building and removing surrounding portable trailers — something that’s very much on the table if an agreement with Graham isn’t made. “At this point, it would be pretty much vacant most of the time,” Dickinson said. “We’d utilize it for some (adult education) classes, but not very many. It would be a big advantage for the community up there, and it would be helpful for us, because we wouldn’t have to do all the negative things we’d have to do up there.” With a more lucrative space, Graham could generate revenue through openings and residencies. He’s a big fan of the Bay Area Figurative Movement that possessed San Francisco in the 1950s

a statue described in a children’s Christmas story, “The Christmas Box,” by Richard Paul Evans. Evans formed The Christmas Box International and began selling the statues cast in bronze. Lunsford’s statue would be a Christmas Box Angel statue. But despite that explicitly Christian background, Lunsford said the angel figure isn’t explicitly Christian. “The angel does not represent an angel from heaven. ... This angel, the author that wrote the book, ‘The Christmas Box’ — it’s his daughter’s face,” she said. Both Lunsford and other local residents who spoke in favor of the angel said the symbolism of an angel isn’t confined to Christianity, and that angels appear in other religions, too. “This angel of hope comes in every religion,” one resident said. “I don’t see the problem with it.” Angels do appear in Jewish and Muslim scripture. But they aren’t generally portrayed as the gentle, comforting protectors seen in Christian tradition, and the idea of creating an angel statue as a place for contemplation or prayer would be largely foreign to Jewish and Muslim religious tradition.

To divide or bring together?

Several commissioners expressed concern that the angel statue would be divisive. And as soon as Carney opened the public comment period, Bob Chase — a Flagler Beach resident who often appears at City Commission meetings to heckle

and ’60s. Works generated through the movement stand out for their color palettes, he said. During the past six years he’s spent at Hollingsworth, area artists have sprung from dormancy to cultivate a unique Northeast Florida community. A haven at A1A could further it, he says. The details of Graham’s plan were laid out in a business proposal he presented in April, to the School Board. In addition to residencies, it outlines outdoor concerts, a coffee shop and festivals as additional streams of revenue. Along with business partner Petra Iston, Graham hopes to use the A1A center to expand beyond the limits of Hollingsworth — both architecturally and conceptually. “While our openings (at Hollingsworth) are hugely attended, the traffic generally dies down afterwards,” the proposal states. “With all the traffic on A1A, this could change dramatically, especially if we creatively made the building and signage more attractive.” While he reiterated that the move is still in the planning stages, Graham is hopeful about the opportunity. “If we move into A1A, that’s a whole different canvas with a whole lot of different problems to solve, but the opportunity is there to do things totally different,” Graham said.

commissioners and city staff with language too course to print — launched a foul tirade against Mealy, who is Jewish. Chase began by swearing at Mealy and the commission, and ended by yelling at Mealy, “What God do you pray to, lady?” “I pray to the same God you do, but maybe in a different way,” she replied calmly. “And it’s really none of your business.” Carney pounded the gavel and told Chase to sit down. He did, grumbling. Another speaker, Flagler Beach resident Paul Ike, approached the podium and said he thought the idea of a monument worthwhile but was concerned about the religious symbolism of the angel and about potential unexpected costs in the future. Another resident said he thought Wickline too small for the monument, which would require about 22 square feet. Commissioner Joy McGrew asked Lunsford,“Does it have to be an Angel of Hope? Does it have to be this symbol?” “It does, because the Angel of Hope is all over the United States and outside of the country,” Lunsford said. “If it’s going to be a bronze statue, you couldn’t get a bronze statue of two children playing, and represent the same thing?” McGrew said. “There’s so many things that you can do to represent the same thing, and take out a major stumbling block, which is religion and government.” Lunsford said she didn’t see why it was an issue for Flagler

Two weeks ago, Flagler County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested 60-yearold Palm Coast resident Ruth Ellen Vantassel for filing a false report that her nephew stole her Jaguar. Last week, they learned the report wasn’t false — not really. It was just a week early. Vantassel first called the Sheriff’s Office April 30, saying her nephew, who lived with her, stole her 1989 Jaguar after she asked him to move out of the house. Deputies contacted the nephew, 46-year-old William Michael Caldwell, who said she loaned him the car. He said she became angry and threatened to report that he had stolen it. He showed them text messages from Vantassel that supported his story. Deputies went back to Vantassel, asked her if she was sure it was stolen, warned her that filing a false report was a crime, and asked her if she wanted to go forward. She signed the paperwork. Then the deputy told her he’d seen the text messages. She held out her hands and said, “Arrest me then, I lied to you.” He did. But May 5, Vantassel again called the Sheriff’s Office saying her nephew stole her car. Dispatch warned the deputy driving out to her home that she’d been arrested the previous week for saying the same thing. But this time was different. The car, which Caldwell had “half agreed” to return April 30, according to the report, was now in Michigan. Vantassel realized what happened after a Michigan resident called her saying Caldwell had sold him the car and told him to call Vantassel to get the title. The Michigan State Police recovered the car.

Commissioner Jane Mealy had concerns about the ramifications of placing a religious image on city government property. Commissioner Marshall Shupe thought the statue too large for Wickline. Beach. “I’m curious as to why commissioners around the country voted this in in their parks, and why Flagler Beach has such a problem with it. … We’re not talking one or two parks, we’re talking more than 100, and I gave you all the list of where these parks are.” The list is also available online. Many of the properties listed are private cemeteries or churches, not subject to the constitutional requirements of government entities. After several commissioners said they were concerned that someone could be offended by the statue and sue, Lunsford said, “People can ride by a church and see a cross and be offended if they’re atheists.” Mealy replied that those crosses aren’t on public property. Carney asked Lunsford if she wanted the commission to hold a vote. “I don’t think you’re going

to get a vote with the angel, to be totally honest with you,” she said. “I know what it is. If I had personal property, I would give it to you. My mother lost two sons. I think you’re asking the wrong group.” Lunsford said she already knew the commission opposed the angel. She asked to leave the issue open, and no vote was held. McGrew suggested Lunsford reconsider her options. “If you really want to, in my opinion, remember your children — our children of the world — use a child,” she said. “Represent what it is that you miss, that you’ve lost, that you’re having hope for. If it’s important, then I think the negotiations could well stay open, and we could come to some kind of agreement, and have a beautiful park in Flagler Beach, and have a beautiful place to go and create a very nice space at Wickline.”

lot language,” Palm Coast Mayor Jon Netts replied. “‘Shall the city of Palm Coast incur an expense of blah blah blah in order to … ’” It’s unclear at this point whether the issue will make the November ballot. Palm Coast resident CarMichael McMillan, who runs a local swip swap group, organized a petition to get rid of the cameras, but has decided not to go through with it. “My biggest worry now, as they discovered in there, is the penalty they’re going to face as a city,” he said after the workshop. McMillan said he’d hoped the council would have some firm numbers at the workshop and fears the city won’t fight ATS to get out of the contract without penalty. “There are other cities that are in this situation, and they’ve come up with very creative ways of getting out of the contract,” by, for example, leaving the cameras in place but covering them over, or by refusing to enforce the tickets. “But the council would have to ask the city attorney, ‘What are our options?’ I don’t think we have that kind of council,” McMillan said. McMillan said he has about 11,500 petition signatures out of the approximately 15,000 he would need to submit to the su-

pervisor of elections by May 19 in order to get the red-light camera issue on the November ballot as a referendum. Instead of doing that, he said, he plans to start collecting signatures for an effort to eliminate the cameras statewide and work to remove council members he considers pro-camera, including Councilmen David Ferguson and Bill Lewis, who are up for re-election. McMillan said he isn’t affiliated with or endorsing any other individual candidates. But even without McMillan’s petition, there are other ways to place the issue on the November ballot. “There are what’s called ‘advisory referendums,’” Palm Coast City Attorney Bill Reischmann said at the workshop. “The city has done one in the past. Many other cities do them. This is where the council gets in front of an issue. There’s no petition. The council just says, ‘We’re looking for guidance. We’re just looking to see what the citizenry and the voters might want.’ So you prepare a question that would go to the voters in November, and it could say, ‘What do you think about this?’ And then when you get the votes back, you can do whatever you want.” The ballot language for an advisory referendum would need to be submitted to the Flagler County Supervisor of Elections Office by June 20, he said.

as important as its outcome, she said. “It requires a lot of reflection,” Espinosa said. “If nothing had ever come of it, I think every teacher should have to write that essay.” Back in college, Espinosa considered becoming a social worker. The pain of handling broken homes on a daily basis made her realize that it wasn’t her calling. As a teacher, she tries to make a difference in a more positive light; her students were glad to return the favor. One 6-year-old kindergarten student said his favorite part of the morning’s festivities was “when Ms. Espinosa got all those dollars from that big check.” “When I saw the kids, that was a little bit overwhelming, because they’re all so special,” Espinosa said. “I’m panning through the crowd and seeing former students’ faces, and I’m trying not to cry. That was really when I was just overwhelmed. But I didn’t faint or throw up.” Administrators may have been able to keep Espinosa’s achievement under wraps for a little while, but it was no shock to anyone who’s seen her in action around the classroom. “When we got the announcement that she was in the final five, I was not surprised one bit, because she’s very deserving of that honor,” Superintendent Jacob Oliva said. Macy’s Florida Teacher of the Year will be announced July 11, at Hard Rock Live in Orlando.

to stop myself from crying. I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, this is what it is.’ I took a deep breath and had to pull myself together, because really, I thought I was just going to burst into tears.” “This” was recognition as one of five finalists for Macy’s Florida Teacher of the Year, a visit from Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart and oh, yeah — a Barbie-dreamhouse-sized check made out to Espinosa for $5,000. Belle Terre was awarded a check for $1,000. Espinosa, a kindergarten teacher and the school’s STEM coordinator, received the accolades in front of the entire student body during a 9 a.m. outdoor ceremony. Matanzas’ Blue Steel drum corps found its groove, and Espinosa was ambushed on the blacktop with hugs from students and colleagues. “This is a lady that thinks outside the box,” Belle Terre Principal Terence Culver said. “If you go into her classroom, it’s student-led — even during her conference times. When it’s parent-student conference times, she had the kid leading the conferences, not her.” As part of the selection process, Espinosa composed essays about her experiences in education. It was a self-audit of sorts, encompassing everything from past accomplishments and challenges to philosophies about trending topics like teacher evaluation. The process was just

christmas come true By Brian McMillan | Executive Editor

War of the Words raises $1,400 It was almost unfair. After a night of stories and poetry on May 10, at the first War of the Words event at Hollingsworth Gallery, it came down to the final round between Jimmy Day and Becky BRIAN MCMILLAN M e y e r Po u r c h o t . And Day pulled out all the stops, using his reading time to praise Christmas Come True founder

Nadine King, and saying that she was one of the “good people” who really made a difference in the community. Who couldn’t vote for Nadine King? Day, who told stories off the cuff the whole night and claimed to have come completely unprepared, was the crowd favorite. He took home the prize: the Golden Quill. Thanks to event organizers Pourchot and Tim Baker, and emcee Michael Ray King, the tournament-style open mic event was a great success. The event raised $1,400 for Christmas Come True, according to Nadine King. The funds will be used to will help fami-

LETTERS EDITOR TO THE

+ Big Brother can help solve crimes; keep the cameras Dear Editor: Well, here it is again: “Red light rollback?” above the fold. I personally don’t like Big Brother watching me everywhere, but think of the crimes that are solved by the cameras being everywhere. I personally don’t like the license camera that takes a pic of every car from north Interstate 95, entering Palm Coast. But there are some pretty scary people that come down to Florida every day for “easy pickings.” And if this license plate camera can stop a crime or solve an abduction, so be it. Now, the traffic cameras’ funding is really questionable, I agree, but I, for one, don’t run red lights — never have, except by accident. The biggest fault I can see is that the caution light needs to be just a tad longer (without advertising it to the public). That way, we may not have all those rear-end accidents that I watch for in my mirror when I stop for a caution light! The fees should be dissected and directed to the city and, of course, maintenance, rental, etc., but don’t send it somewhere else. Any “profit” should remain in Flagler County (like parking ticket citations). Oh yeah, a 12-15 mph “prudent rollthrough a red light” is stupid. Right on red means the brakes should be applied, car stops, and the gears should change — before you slide through that red light! Carol Propper Palm Coast

+ Where are our state officials to help protect us from the cameras? Dear Editor: With regard to the May 8 article, "Red light rollback?": When the state of Florida created ambiguous laws about right-turn-onred procedures and took away from our fair city this important red light camera revenue, where were the men we elected to speak on our behalf in Tallahassee — Travis Hutson and John Thrasher?

lies in need in Flagler County. In addition, King set aside $180 for two scholarships for children to take summer art classes at Hollingsworth, as a way to thank Curator J.J. Graham for hosting the event. Baker also raised about $100 for Christmas Come True by getting his hair cut. He has grown out a ponytail for years and said that if people would donate to the cause he would chop it off. Rebecca Howell-Boykin, owner of Atmosphere Salon, did the honors. It was the first time since Oct. 7, 2007, or 2,407 days, that Baker’s hair had been cut. Email bmcmillan@palmcoastobserver.com.

(Editor’s Note: This letter was also sent to City Manager Jim Landon.) Dear Editor: Please do not succumb to all the squeaky wheels clamoring for the removal of the red light cameras. When one looks at the so-called arguments against the cameras, they are complete nonsense. My guess is the people against the cameras are the ones who got caught breaking the law. The cameras

+ No one else will protect you, so be sure to arm yourself — legally Dear Editor: I was advised not to write this because one does not make disparaging comments about those in charge of local law enforcement, especially traffic enforcement, but I think Sheriff Jim Manfre has more to worry about than one disgruntled old man who never speeds, stops at all stop signs and obeys all traffic rules and laws like they are edicts from God and she’s watching me at all times. Amen. I see that our sheriff was giving a speech to the Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida, Team Volusia-Flagler (all 35 of them), and I guess politicians tailor their talks to appease the people they are addressing at the moment, but it seems he went a bridge too far on gun control. We are not in New York, Connecticut or California; Florida is still in the South, and we do believe in the Second Amendment, and we don’t appreciate outsiders threatening to take any of our guns, which we cling to and are proficient with. identify the culprits/bad drivers who cause serious accidents and fine them for their law-breaking. As for the interference from the state you mention, Mr. Landon, there must be a way to manage that situation and keep the red light cameras in operation. I appreciate City Councilman Bill McGuire’s position on the cameras. The cameras protect law-abiding drivers from the reckless drivers. John Clancy Palm Coast

+ Is there really such a thing as too much safety? Keep the cams Dear Editor: I’m lucky I didn’t break an important bone falling out of my chair laughing at this front-page article. The last paragraph appearing on the front page quotes Jim Landon as saying: “Although the cameras do impact safety, the program has grown far beyond what the city intended when it implemented it” — and if you stop right there, you’d have to agree with me that the city believes there reaches a point where there’s too much safety to be worth it. Of course, if you follow the comma onto Page 4 of the continuing article, it’s obvious it’s all about the state getting their sticky fingers into the pot by making this a Uniform Traffic Citation and, thus, upping the ante. As Deep Throat said years ago, “Follow the money.” I guess what that says to me is that incorporated cities are powerless against state government. In any case, I can’t conceive of a more

I bought my first gun when I was 12 years old, 68 years ago, and I’m going to buy my next gun within a week, and it will be what a lot of misinformed people call an assault weapon. It will be black, have a pistol grip, a banana magazine that will hold at least 30 rounds, be a .40 Smith & Wesson, have a flash supressor and a green laser. I’m going to name it Dianne after an old gal out in Cal. How many of you readers find it strange that everyone who wants to take our guns is surrounded by a lot of people who have a lot of guns! They have the secret service, body guards, police details, the FBI, CIA protecting them, and all I got is me, but next week I’ll have Dianne, and I’ll be more secure because as any honest cop will tell you, they can’t protect you. They may find the gang-banger that kicked down your door and killed you, but we’re on our own. Be alert and be armed — legally. Douglas Glover Palm Coast egalitarian method for prosecution of traffic infractions than the red light cameras. I mean, the only people being fined are the ones who committed the crime; there’s pictorial evidence. Unlike, in the case of a burglary, whereas you’re responsible for your homeowners deductible, the perpetrator is responsible for nothing, and if he is caught you’re responsible for the taxes that keep him in prison. Looking at it in that perspective, it seems idiotic to me that citizens would want to go back to intersections being “policed” by actual officers who have to waste their time sitting at an intersection waiting for an infraction to occur, and then, when it does, having the ability to “use their discretion” — whatever that means. I’d like to applaud Councilman Bill McGuire for his stand on this issue. Shirley Carter Palm Coast

+ Red light cameras rob us of our judgment: Do I brake or hit the gas? Dear Editor: I have been driving for 50 years, never had an accident in all that time, and now, suddenly, when I approach a yellow light, because of the red light cameras and their timing, I don't know whether to hit the gas or the brakes. This robs me of the use of my judgment. Driver confusion causes accidents. Bill Campion Palm Coast — Send letters to editor@palmcoastobserver.com.

Burglary can be heavy lifting 8:24 p.m. First block of Crompton Place. Burglary. A woman returned home May 2, went out to her patio, and realized all the patio furniture — an antique concrete and stone patio table, and two benches inlaid with multicolored stones — was gone. She called the Sheriff’s Office, and a deputy investigating the crime noted that her yard wasn’t fenced and that it backed up against a golf course. There were no signs of forced entry to the house itself. A window was smashed, but it was an interior one not reachable from the outside. The woman told the deputy she was having her house renovated, and the deputy speculated in his report that the contractor could have broken the

CORNER interior window. The deputy gave her a case card and said he would check with her lawn service provider. The stolen lawn furniture was worth about $5,000.

The deputy gave the man a case card.

Kings Road. Larceny. A loss prevention officer at a local department store saw a man walk into a fitting room with a bundle of items of clothing and then emerge minutes later holding just a few. The man walked out of the store without paying for anything, and the loss prevention officer stopped him in the parking lot. The man admitted to taking the clothes, and showed the loss prevention officer where he’d hidden them: he had a bra and a T-shirt in his pants pocket, and was wearing a pilfered pair of swim trunks. The loss prevention officer gave the deputy a written witness statement and a copy of the store’s surveillance video. The deputy issued the thief a trespass warning from the store, arrested him on a shoplifting charge and took him to the Flagler County jail. The stolen clothes were worth a total of $51.97. — Compiled from reports from the Sheriff’s Office by Jonathan Simmons

+ Road rage escalates to pepper spraying Someone called 911 May 7 after seeing a man get out of a car on Belle Terre Parkway and spray pepper spray in another driver’s face. A deputy drove out and didn’t see anything, but minutes later, another man called 911 and said his brother had just been sprayed with pepper spray, according to the deputy’s report. The pepper spray victim, Toze Reis, 35, said he was driving east on Whiteview Parkway behind a black Dodge Ram pickup with Arkansas tags when the driver started brake-checking him “for some unknown reason,” according to the report. Reis said he got angry at the pickup driver and flipped him off. When both drivers stopped at the light at Belle Terre Parkway, Reis said, the pickup driver got out of his truck and walked over to him. There was an argument, he said, and then the other man pulled out a can of pepper spray, sprayed him in the face and drove off. Reis declined to file criminal

charges, according to the deputy’s report, and said he was “not that type of guy.” A few hours later, the deputy saw a truck that matched the description of the one Reis said the pepper-spray wielder was driving. The deputy conducted a traffic stop, and the driver, 34-year-old Michael Turner, said he knew why the deputy stopped him, and wanted to explain his side of the story. Turner said Reis’ silver car flew up on his tail, and he tapped his brakes to slow down, thinking the car would swerve around him. Instead, he said, the driver tailgated him, flashing his lights, flipping his middle finger and motioning for Turner to pull over. Turner’s wife and son were in the car, and he thought of having his wife call 911, but thought that would be useless if he didn’t have the aggressive driver’s tag number, he said. So at the stoplight, he got out and walked toward the rear of the car to see the plate. Then, he said, the other driver, Reis, got out of his car and approached him, screaming and yelling. He said he sprayed Reis with pepper spray to give himself time to leave the scene. Neither man decided to pursue charges.

+ Palm Coast urges residents to take survey

INBRIEF + Flagler Beach sets guidelines for medical pot dispensaries The Flagler Beach City Commission has passed on first reading an ordinance restricting medical marijuana dispensaries to certain zoning areas and adding regulations to prevent them from becoming hangouts. “I do think it’s important to have something in there now,” Commissioner Jane Mealy said at the May 8 City Commission meeting. “Like we learned on the vacation rental issue, let’s get something on the books.” The commission’s vote came in response to two statewide medical marijuana-related initiatives. One recently passed by the state House and Senate and awaiting Gov. Rick Scott’s signature allows doctors to prescribe a specific, low-

City Commissioner Joy McGrew and Mayor Linda Provencher discussed medical pot. THC form of marijuana called “Charlotte’s Web” for epilepsy and cancer patients. Floridians will vote in November on a ballot initiative that would allow doctors more latitude in who to prescribe marijuana for and what kind can be prescribed. The Flagler Beach ordinance would allow medical marijuana dispensaries in the highway commercial zoning district, but only with a special exception. It also prohibits

the dispensaries from serving alcohol. “Where things like this come from is addressing some things seen in other states that adopted this, where the medical marijuana dispensary becomes a hangout,” City Attorney Drew Smith said. “We want to see, before we approve you ... that it’s not going to become some kind of hangout, other than just come, and get your prescription, and leave.”

The River to Sea Transportation Planning Organization is planning transportation improvements for the Flagler County area, and has asked residents to tell the TPO about their transportation needs through a survey available at palmcoastgov.com/TPOsurvey, according to a city of Palm Coast news release. Responses received by July 23 will be placed in a drawing for a chance to win $250. The drawing is optional, and survey responses can also be submitted anonymously. The boundaries of the Metropolitan Planning area covering Volusia County and parts of Flagler County were recently expanded, as required by federal law, and now include Palm Coast, according to the news release. The city plans to join the River to Sea TPO, according to the news release. The City Council has voted to approve an expansion of the TPO boundaries to include Palm Coast, and will vote within the next month or two on an interlocal agreement to make Palm Coast a voting member of the TPO.

OPPOSITE FIELD Joey LoMonaco | Sports Writer

Hyperlocal: Go Jaguars! A car leaves the L-section of Palm Coast traveling 65 mph. At a point 59 miles north, a hamburger patty hits a grill with a surface temperature of 450 degrees Fahrenheit. There’s a slight crosswind. No, that’s not some demented word problem to haunt you for cheating in seventh-grade preAlgebra, but rather, a simple reminder that’s there’s an NFL franchise located less than an hour from Palm Coast. JOEY And oh yeah, LoMONACO they held a draft last weekend. But why should the average resident of Palm Coast care about the Jacksonville Jaguars? I’ll give it the old college try. 1) There are only 32 of them — NFL franchises — in the whole world. Most people in the country can’t leave home at 11:45 a.m. on any given Sunday in the fall, surrender hundreds of dollars in parking, merch and tickets to a gigantic corporation (OK, not the best sell), and park their keisters in a roaring stadium before a 1 p.m. kickoff. If you live in Palm Coast, you can. 2) The Jags roster features the last two relevant quarterbacks from the University of Michigan in Chad Henne and Denard Robinson. Only one is still playing QB. Intriguing, no? If so, pick up a copy of John U. Bacon’s “Three and Out.” Look, we’re even promoting functional literacy here! 3) Jacksonville has a third-year, billionaire owner — Shad Khan — who sounds like he’s descended from a proud line of fierce Mongol warriors. Convinced yet? While you’re pondering, here’s a quick primer on the draft. Jacksonville selected former University of Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles with the No. 3 overall pick in the first round. He’s big (6-foot-5), vaunted (led the Knights to consecutive bowl game wins in the past two years) making him all-around dreamy to the guys who make these types of decisions. It’s not like those measurables are comparable to (2011 first-round pick) Blaine Gabbert or anything. Actually, they are — with hand size, height, weight and arm length between the two passers matching almost exactly. Just saying. The Jags brass followed up the Bortles pick by grabbing two receivers — University of Southern California’s Marqise Lee and Penn State’s Allen Robinson. At least Bortles won’t have the same builtin excuses (no one to throw to) that Gabbert did. I’m going to talk our executive editor, Brian McMillan, into covering the Jaguars this season. Get in his ear about it if you have the chance. It’ll be worth it. Trust me.

Ripley gets started with Matanzas Pirates.

Flagler Palm Coast: speed, experience

Head Coach: Robert Ripley, first season 2013 record: 3-7 Offensive Scheme: Pro-style, “old school” I-Formation Defensive Scheme: Multiple 50 (five defensive linemen) Top Returners: LB Jordin Castanheira, So. LB Steverson Jean-Louis, Sr. WR Andre Bodison, Jr. S/LB Da’Varis Allen, Jr. Spring game: 7 p.m. May 22 vs. Fleming Island RIPLEY’S TAKE: On the purpose of spring practice: “The biggest thing is getting assimilated with the kids, getting them to know me and me to know them so we can start to have a little bit of growth, and get some of our main offensive and defensive stuff in. ... We need to get out on the grass and see what we’ve got. That’s the hardest part about being a new staff.” On building a program at Matanzas: “One of the things that they don’t have here, that they’ve never had here is just a pure belief. They’re kind of the red-headed stepchild: They’re not FPC, and they’ve never been good at football. ... If we want to be consistently good every year, we need to be good in the classroom. ... The next step is being good in the weight room. We’re going to change that dynamic to where we’re back to having 100 kids in the weight room getting stronger. ... It takes all of those pieces to build a culture. They’ve never had all of them, and we have to, to be good at it.” Notes:  — Two unproven, southpaw quarterbacks will battle it out for the lead spot under center. (Rising) senior Ian Hubbs is a returning all-conference punter who’ll shift his focus to taking snaps not designed to give the ball back to the opponent, while sophomore Noah Hoffman is an intriguing prospect. — Ripley comes to Matanzas after stints as an assistant at FPC, Pedro Menendez, Warner Christian and St. Augustine.

Head Coach: Cesar Campana, fifth season 2013 record: 4-5 Offensive Scheme: Spread  Defensive Scheme: Multiple D Top returners: WR/DB Jimmie Robinson, Sr. WR/DB Marcel Williams, Sr. OL Jake Dempsey, Sr. DE Matthew Gartner, Sr. Spring game: 7:30 p.m. May 23 at Bartram Trail CAMPANA’S TAKE: On spring football practices: “We’re just trying to see who can play varsity, and who’s going to be on the JV team for next year; that’s the main thing, as well as we’re trying to fine-tune things we do on offense, defense and special teams.” On returning almost the entire team: “There’s nothing like experience in athletics. There is so much that you can be better at, based on what your kids know. We have kids that have been four-year starters for us, and that is not only a good thing as far as their experience on the football field, but as far as team leadership that makes up so much better.” Notes: — FPC will head into the season with (rising) junior Dalton Thomas returning for his third season at quarterback. Thomas was the primary starter in 2013 after winning the job early in the season. He’ll have competition from McKenzie Wagner (a rising sophomore) and Deandre Armstrong for the starting job. — The Bulldogs will be playing with the same schedule they used last season as part of a two-year, “home and home” contract set up with the FHSAA. The only difference is a flip in game venues. Mark your calendars for Week 1, when the Bulldogs open at Matanzas. — Campana will have a loaded roster, with a total of 22 returners with starting experience.

BY THE NUMBERS

22 — returning starters on FPC’s roster. That’s an entire offense and defense worth of experience. 10.7 — roughly the time it takes Bulldogs wideout/speed merchant Jimmie Robinson to sprint 100 yards 0 — wins all-time for Matanzas against FPC; the Pirates and Bulldogs square off in Week 1 at Matanzas. 5 — defensive lineman in the “50” defense that Matanzas will run; it’s geared toward stopping the run. 100 — players coach Robert Ripley envisions showing up for offseason weightlifting sessions

About 100 surfers turned out for the May Day Memorial Surf Contest Saturday, almost triple the number that showed up when Flagler Beach surfer Haley Watson founded the contest four years ago. This year, the contest raised $2,500 for the cardiology department of Halifax Health. Watson founded the surf contest to raise awareness of heart disease in women and to honor her mother Dollie Sue Watson, who died of heart disease at 48. “It’s such an amazing way to bring the community together while still honoring my mom,” Watson said. This year, the contest fell on Mother’s Day weekend, and Watson won the Women’s Pro division.

Surfers came from as far away as Puerto Rico, and the number of spectators increased, too, Watson said. “This is the first year we’ve had it up on the boardwalk, and it’s definitely made a difference in the number of spectators,” she said. “People that aren’t competitors drive by, wonder what’s going on, and end up staying.” Ormond Beach resident Matty Zaccaria, 17, picked up surfing at 14 from some friends, but soon was practicing every day. Learning aerials, maneuvers in which a surfer launches themself and their board off a wave, and then comes back down on the same wave, were the hardest to learn, he said.

“Just the technique of it — the kind of wave you have to have, getting things in the right order to know what to do, what the wave is offering,” he said. It took him about two years to get the hang of it, he said. Saturday, Zaccaria placed first in the Men’s Pro division. One of the youngest surfers in the grom division at Saturday’s event was sevenyear-old Hammock resident Braeden Kopec, who placed sixth n the grom division and first in the open bodyboard event.

Braeden said he surfs every day after school. “I just like going out there and having fun,” he said. Braeden said he enjoyed mastering the technique of speed creation, and that he’d like to be a pro surfer one day. His father, Brian Kopec, said Braeden has already picked up some sponsorships and surfed more than 100 contests. Brian Kopec said he and his wife are also surfers, but “not like he is,” he said, pointing to Braeden. “He puts mom and dad to shame.”

START ’EM YOUNG By Joey LoMonaco | Sports Writer

FPC holds elementary track meet Flagler Palm Coast’s track team hosted an elementary school meet on Saturday. Youngsters from six schools — Belle Terre, Bunnell, St. Elizabeth Anne Seton, Wadsworth, Phoenix Academy, and Old Kings — participated. Events included the long jump and 50-, 100-, 200-, 400- and

800-meter dashes. Belle Terre finished first among girls teams with 37 points, while Bunnell finished first in the boys competition with 59 points. Five points were awarded for a first place finish in an event, three for a second-place finish, and one for third.

Mr. Dibbs is survived by two sons, Geroge R. (Candace) Dibbs of Dallas TX, and Stephen J. Dibbs of New York City, NY, one daughter, Deborah Murphy of Palm Coast, Fl., one sister, Helen Easman of Stamford CT, a brother, Mitchell Dibbs of Palm Coast, FL; two grandchildren, Deirdre and Sean Murphy and a great grandson, Theodore Record. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by first wife, Marjorie Dibbs, his second wife Margaret “Peggy” Dibbs, and two brothers, Alfred and Nicholas Dibbs. Graveside services will be held later this week at Manhasset Dutch Reformed Church Cemetery, 90 Plandome Rd., in Manhasset, New York.

reaching new heights By Shanna Fortier | Community Editor

Students collaborate for weather balloon launch there, and there’s a lot to learn,” said Belle Terre STEM Club student Kayla Grude. “I love science, I love math; everything about it is just fun — I’m naturally good at both. With science, just exploring, finding new things — it makes me excited.” The Thursday launch was the second, the first having taken place on Earth Day. Eventually, the tethered balloon will be let go and flown at 100,000 feet. “The students are understanding aerospace technology, weather technology,” Nunez said. “Teaming with Riddle, the students learn a lot from them, and they learn a lot from us.” Photos by Shanna Fortier

Students in the Belle Terre Elementary STEM Club help inflate a tethered weather balloon. Left: Kayla Grude monitors the GoPro camera attached to the weather balloon through an iPad. Her goal is to take an aerial picture of the school. Right: Jose Nunez and Belle Terre students were joined by EmbryRiddle students.

A group of students in the STEM Club at Belle Terre Elementary School stood in a circle around District STEM Coordinator Jose Nunez on May 8, at the school’s STEM Expo. The main event was the launch of a weather balloon, a joint project between students at Belle Terre, Indian Trails Middle School, Old Kings Elementary School, Flagler Palm Coast High School, Matanzas High School and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The project goal is to give middle and high school students a real-life opportunity to assist professional engineers and amateur radio enthusiasts from the Palm Coast Amateur Radio Club to design and build a tethered weather balloon for aerial surveillance and two-way communications for Flagler County Emergency Services Agencies. In addition to the goals of the club, students are working to collect real time temperature, humidity and barometric pressure data as well as biological samples of insects and pollen at different altitudes. The project is funded by a $5,000 Motorola Solutions Foundation “Innovation Generation” Grant, which was acquired by the Flagler County Education Foundation. “We don’t know a lot about what’s up

hen he was a boy in Cuba, Elio Beltran spent time playing with a friend, Eloy Sardinas. They fired slingshots and walked through a canopied path near the railroad tracks where cattle were unloaded. They ran from bulls, they told each other stories of the woman who had been killed nearby, and they told stories of the rituals practiced by an African group in the woods. Today, that scene is depicted in Beltran’s painting, “The Forbidden Path,” which he completed in 1989. On Monday afternoon this week, that painting leaned against an orange wall along with others waiting to be hung and illuminated. Beltran’s memories of childhood in Cuba have inspired many paintings in his long career, which has now brought him to this weekend, when he will open the Elio Beltran Museum and Artist Gallery of Palm Coast, at 1 Farraday Lane, Suite 2E. “Thinking of that beautiful, clean atmosphere, the freedom to run around as kids,” Beltran reminisced about Cuba. “We played baseball and went swimming — it was spontaneous.” Childhood spontaneity informs the subject matter of many of his paintings, though his composition is controlled. He paints winding paths, surreal scenes, images of bays and docks. Another painting depicts his hometown of Regla, Cuba. In the distance, cranes

built by his father tower over the water. A small figure is seen walking along a path, and that is the inspiration for the title: “Loreta Va a Paseo,” which means “Loreta goes for a walk.” Loreta was a beautiful woman in Regla, and she was unmarried at 30, which made her mysterious to the boy Beltran. When she walked through town with her parasol, “She was someone to admire,” Beltran recalled. And in the foreground of the painting there is a surreal image of Beltran himself when, as a young man he borrowed one of his father’s suits to walk through town himself. He recalled, “I felt like a man that day.” Beltran has shown his work in exhibits in Miami, New York, Washington, D.C., and many other places. He lives in Ormond Beach today, but he decided on Palm Coast as the home for his new gallery, noting that it has an ascending arts scene. “I had been going back and forth to St. Augustine for two years, but I stopped here,” Beltran said. “Palm Coast has attracted some good artists. In dealing with the ambiance of people involved in the arts — this is refreshing. The people are passionate about education. They’re creating an attractive environment here. I feel very stimulated to be a part of it.” Beltran wrote a book about his escapades with his Eloy, his boyhood Cuban

Beltran completed “The Forbidden Path” in 1989. The Spanish title is “El Callejon del Sapo,” or “The Frog Alley.” friend, who died at age 13. The book is called “Back to Cuba,” and it was the subject of a talk he was scheduled to deliver on Wednesday, at the Flagler County Art League. To learn more about Beltran and his work, visit eliobeltran.com. The opening of his gallery is 2-6 p.m. Saturday, May 17.

Celebrating Local Tourism H.E.R.O.E.S. By Matt Dunn | Flagler Chamber VP of Tourism The first full week of May is annually recognized as National Travel and Tourism Week, a tradition first celebrated in 1984 and established by a Congressional joint resolution. Throughout the U.S., the travel community celebrates Tourism Week in many creative ways, from staging local rallies and conducting media outreach to securing proclamations and resolutions from local legislative bodies. In Flagler County, our celebratiion includes honoring local HEROES (Hospitality Employee Recognition of Excellent Service) each May, a tradition we’ve upheld for the past five years. The Flagler HEROES Award Ceremony was held at the Hilton Garden Inn Monday, May 12th with an enthusiastic audience of representatives from the local hospitality industry.

TOM’S BUSINESS TIPS

What Does Sine Die Mean Again?

What’s the Best Legal Structure for My Business?

I followed the Legislative Session in Tallahassee closely this year before it adjourned on May 2. It was the first time I’d really paid attention to state politics in a while and getting reacquainted with it was fun. In college, I was a political science major and did some public affairs work for a PR agency in North Carolina. That was, however, years ago, so there’s been a lot I’ve had to learn and re-learn. Thanks to streaming broadcasts of House or Senate sessions, weekly legislative update calls with the Florida Chamber, and frequently asked question pages, I made it through session and got up to speed quickly. One of many things I learned is the meaning of Sine Die, which is Latin for “without day.” For a legislative body, to adjourn sine die means to adjourn without appointing a day on which to assemble again. When legislators say “Happy Sine Die” at the end of session, it’s almost like saying “mission accomplished” as they leave Tallahassee and head back home. A total of 1879 bills were filed this session: 931 in the Senate and 948 in the House. Of these, 264 bills passed, along with 11 Constitutional amendments. Both

This is among the most frequently asked questions when starting a new small business or reconsidering the legal structure of a growing one. It’s also one of the most important questions to answer. The structure you choose will affect everything from paying taxes to assigning liability, from raising capital to sharing profits. Each type of structure has trade-offs that should be fully understood. Here’s a quick comparison of those most frequently used by small businesses: A sole proprietorship is an unincorporated business owned by one person. Paying taxes is relatively simple, as the owner reports income/losses along with his/her personal taxes. However, the owner is personally liable for any business-related expenses or liabilities. While there are no corporate registration requirements, sole proprietors may still have to comply with local registration and licensing laws. In a partnership, two or more people share ownership. Each contributes time, resources, expertise, and/or money to the business in return for a share of the profits/losses. Each partner is also responsible for his/her own actions, as well as business debts and decisions made by other partners. That’s why a partnership agreement is a must (see last month’s Business Tips Column at www.flaglerchamber.org/voice-newsletter). It should detail each participant’s contributions and responsibilities, division of profits, resolution of disputes, and the handling of other major business decisions. Then there’s the corporation, an independent legal entity owned by shareholders. Corporations inherently have complex administrative, tax, and legal requirements.

By Tom Hellman | SCORE, www.score87.org

By Gretchen Smith | Flagler Chamber Government Affairs Director

the number of bills filed and the number of bills passed were 22 and 23 percent lower than the 10-year averages. This wasn’t surprising for an election year, especially if you factor in the GOP-controlled legislature’s reluctance to send Gov. Scott bills that might hamper his chances of re-election. Some of our legislative priorities were addressed this session, including returning short-term vacation rentals to home rule. We appreciate Rep. Hutson and Sen. Thrasher for their hard work getting this legislation through the House and Senate. Another bill, SB 176, which reduced sales tax on commercial leases, was expected to be part of Gov. Scott’s Tax Cut Agenda, but didn’t make the cut. This will remain one of our priorities in 2015 since Florida is the only state that charges sales tax on commercial leases and reducing the tax will make it more affordable for businesses to lease space. With the session behind us, our focus turns to the primary and general election. We’ll host two forums this year to increase voter education and encourage participation. As a reminder, we don’t and won’t support candidates or political parties. Stay tuned for more information about these Flagler Votes Forums and, as always, please call if you need my help, 386-437-0106.

On the other hand, selling various types of shares in an established business can make it easier to raise capital. Plus, shareholders are not legally liable for the business’s actions and debts. A variation of this structure is the “S corporation,” named for the Internal Revenue Service subchapter that defines it, and often used in situations where the shareholders are also employees. An S corporation distinguishes between shareholder/employee wages and other profit distributions, which are taxed at different rates. However, S corporations carry the same legal and administrative requirements of “regular” corporations. The limited liability company (LLC) has become a popular structure for small businesses in recent years. LLCs offer a corporation’s limited liability with a partnership’s flexibility and simplified taxation. There are also fewer recordkeeping requirements, and it’s entirely up to the LLC’s owners (known officially as “members”) to determine profit distribution. However, LLC members must pay self-employment taxes and make their own Medicare and Social Security contributions. And when a member leaves, the LLC must be dissolved. Each structure has provisions and options that require exploration before finding the right match for a small business. For more information on these important business decisions, plan to attend a free workshop addressing “Legal/Insurance Requirements of a Small Business” being held on May 20 at the Palm Coast Campus of the Daytona State College. This SCORE workshop is cosponsored by the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce and Daytona State College. To register for the workshop or request one-onone counseling, go to www.SCORE87.org or call 386-255-6889.

Ribbon Cutting Events: A Way to Pay It Forward Our chamber hosts a variety of events to raise visibility for our members and partners. Ribbon cutting ceremonies and grand openings are probably some of the most important events members use to introduce themselves and their business to other members and the general public. A significant amount of time and effort goes into planning and hosting these events so it’s important that they are well attended to help make the right first impression. That’s why we need your help. Most of us, at one point or another have felt the exhilaration, and, let’s face it, the stress of planning an open house. You start planning early, pour over every detail, make list after checklist of to dos, invite everyone that matters, and are pretty much consumed until the big day. And that’s when it happens…your big event is here, it’s 15 or 20 minutes past the designated start time and still your parking lot is empty. The one thing you didn’t anticipate has happened. Only a small handful of people have shown up. There is something that every resident and business professional in Flagler County

can do to help this from happening to new business owners. When you hear about an open house, grand opening or ribbon cutting, do what you can to make an appearance at the event. You don’t need to block hours out of your day; just enough time to welcome the new business, meet its owners and say congratulations. We’ve all heard of the expression paying it forward. Well, supporting for local businesses, especially those new to town or to the Chamber, is one small way you can pay it forward and make a difference. Take the time, make an effort and show someone what they do matters, and chances are, the favor will be returned when and if you need it. Besides, you never know who you might meet at these events, or if the services the business provides is something you or someone you know may need. We have several ribbon cuttings and events scheduled during May and June and would appreciate your support and participation. You can see a complete list online at www.flaglerchamber.org under Chamber events or call Heather Thompson for details at 437.0106.
