The Buddy Taylor Middle School receptionist swipes a license in the new Raptor Visitor Management System, then compares it to what came up on her screen.

PROTECTING CHILDREN A new license scanning system is looking for those people you don’t want around your kids. JACQUE ESTES COMMUNITY EDITOR

O

n Monday, Nov. 14, Flagler Schools increased the safety of its students and staff by adding the Raptor Visitor Management System to its visitor screening process. In the past, visitors would simply show their driver’s license and gain admittance. “We are trying to elevate our level of safety for the schools,” said School Safety Consultant Winnie Oden. “In the past, we knew, maybe, who was in our schools, but maybe not, because we had no consistent way of running ID.” Visitors, with the exception of school personnel and volunteers with school IDs, will now have their driver’s license scanned before being issued a visitor’s badge. Official volunteers are required to provide their fingerprints, and go through a background check, before they’re issued a schoolbased ID. While most parents might understand and appreciate the added security for their children, it’s understandable to wonder what information is coming up on the computer screen. “We are seeing your name, part of your driver’s license num-

ber, and birth date,” said Maria McGovern, the district’s technology coordinator. “You are giving more information when you go to Target, or swipe your card at the gas station, than we get.” The scan is focused on identifying registered child predators and sex offenders. “Every time a name is added to the database, the system is updated,” Oden said. The system also has a customized alert feature, which will allow the school to enter legal notifications, such as restraining orders or child custody restrictions, submitted by parents to the school. Parents dropping off permission slips or forgotten lunches can still leave them at the front desk with no check-in required. Those attending an event before or after school will most likely be escorted to the area where the event will be held, and may not have their license scanned. “It will be up to administrator, whether they want to use it for early morning or after school activities,” Community Information Specialist Jason Wheeler said. “With that many people, the adults are funneled to the cafetorium and are segregated in one area. They are not going to be roaming around the school.”

Each school has an independent system. “They don’t ‘talk’ to each other,” Oden said. “So if you have children at more than one school, you will be asked for ID at each, even if you were at another school that day. We are in an adjustment period, but at some point we want you to get the same response from each school. If it’s going to be effective, it needs to be consistent.” There are times when a false positive could occur, such as instances where individuals have the same name and the same birthday. The driver’s license photo that appears on the screen will generally identify which of the individuals is standing before the receptionist. If there is any doubt, the receptionists will ask the person to have a seat while an administrator is called. “We do not want to embarrass anyone,” Oden said. “The administrator is called and you can have a private conversation,” Oden said. If someone doesn’t want to give their ID, it’s not a problem, but they won’t be admitted into the classroom areas. “For the most part we are getting a good response so far,” Oden said. “The parents understand why we are doing it.” The information is basic, and specific. There are no Social Security numbers, no citizenship identification, or any other personal information. When a person does not have U.S. identification, such as those who live in the U.S. only part of the year, a passport will be accepted. The information is erased, schoolwide, at the end of the day. A secured, off-site server maintains the data. The brightly colored visitor name tags, used before the Raptor system, were rarely returned to the front desk when the visitor left the school. With the Raptor system, visitors will be asked, upon departure, to return their name tag, and the fact that the visitor has left campus will be noted in

The new visitor name tag, with my driver’s license photo, is a quick way for students and staff to know I am approved to be on the school grounds.

the system. “To be effective, not only do you need to know who is coming in, but you should be able to know who has left your building,” Oden said. “It also lets administrators know who is on campus.” Oden first learned of the system, which is being used across the country, at a Florida Association of School Resource Officers conference in Orlando. The $15,000 cost equipped all nine schools in the district. The maintenance cost to update the data base is approximately $200 per school, per year. “It is important for parents to know: We are not refusing access,” Oden said. “But if someone comes up as a hit, there’s an additional responsibility to the administrator, because there may be a legitimate and specific reason for that person to be on the campus. That is the administrator’s decision.” There are no exceptions. Even if someone is known to the receptionist, but does not have their Flagler School identification, their license will be scanned. “It’s a slippery slope if you begin to say, “This is OK,” because then, there’s not a consistency across the district,” Oden said. Wheeler said, “Give us a couple of weeks to get everything cleared out, and it should be a clear transition. We are trying to protect our assets, which are the children.”

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office has arrested 28-yearold Palm Coast resident Vitaly Tsabak, of 63 Columbia Lane, on charges including arson and burglary after an apartment fire at 164B Fenimore Lane in Palm Coast. Deputies initially received a 911 call early the morning of Nov. 25 to respond to 161A Fenimore Lane to investigate noises coming from the caller’s roof/attic, according to a Sheriff’s Office Vitaly Tsabak news release. The caller said she was scared because she believed that someone was trying to break into her home. The caller also noted an alarm coming from apartment B next door. After deputies arrived, they noticed smoke coming from apartment B of the duplex. They later determined that the noises the homeowner heard was the fire burning in apartment B. No one was hurt or was inside apartment B during in the incident. Apartment B received minimal fire damage and significant smoke damage, and a firewall separating the two apartments spared apartment A from fire damage. Meanwhile, as investigators were still at the fire scene, a deputy in the B section of Palm Coast was flagged down by a citizen who reported a person passed out in a vehicle on Columbia Lane. The citizen said that when the citizen tried to check on the driver, he appeared to be passed out and would not wake up when the citizen knocked on the window. When deputies arrived, they found a 2013 white Dodge Dart in the roadway in front of 59 Columbia Lane. After deputies awakened the driver, later identified as Vitaly Tsabak, medical personnel arrived on scene, and, following a brief medical evaluation, they treated Tsabak for several minor injuries not sustained in the DUI. Deputies then initiated a DUI

Debris pick-up closeout begins for Flagler County public roads Debris pick up is being closed out on public roads in unincorporated Flagler County, but is complete on the private roads and gated communities, according to a Flagler County government news release. The final pass for debris pick-up for the areas west of Interstate 95 began Saturday, Nov. 26, and is expected to be completed within seven to 10 days.

investigation, and, following a series of field sobriety exercises, Tsabak was arrested for DUI. At the time of his detainment, deputies located a screwdriver in Tsabak’s pocket. Tsabak was booked into the Flagler County Inmate Facility. As part of the DUI investigation, deputies were conducting a routine inventory of the items inside the vehicle to prepare for the vehicle to be towed when it was discovered that one of the items inside the vehicle was related to the arson investigation at 164 Fenimore Lane. This was based on the list of items which were missing from apartment B. This list included a MacBook computer and serial number which matched the one inventoried in the vehicle. When deputies realized the item was possibly related, they immediately stopped the inventory and secured the vehicle so detectives could obtain a search warrant for the vehicle. Based on the details of the investigation conducted by deputies, detectives, crime scene investigators and an investigator from the state Fire Marshal’s Office, Tsabak, who was still incarcerated at the inmate facility, was charged with arson, burglary, grand theft and possession of burglary tools. Tsabak has been arrested multiple times in the past in Flagler County on charges including burglary, dealing in stolen property, petty theft, grand theft over $100,000, forgery, carrying a concealed weapon illegally and probation violation, according to county jail records. Anyone with information about this crime, or any crime in Flagler County, is urged to contact the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office at 386-313-4911. Callers can also remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 by calling Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida at (888) 2778477 (TIPS).

“Please make sure you have your vegetative debris out by this Saturday (Nov. 26) if you live west of I-95,” Flagler County Administrator Craig Coffey said in the news release. “We cannot say exactly what day crews are going to be on a specific street, so be ready for them. This is the last pass.” Crews are also in the process of completing a final pass east of U.S. 1, and the same advice applies. Debris should be moved to the public street right-of-way and separated by the following Saturday, Dec. 3, for final pickup.

Human remains found in Hunters Ridge and Varn Park The two cases do not appear to be related. OBSERVER STAFF

Human remains have been found in two locations in Flagler County within a week, but the cases are not related, according to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office. In the first case, a Hunter’s Ridge resident searching for a crashed toy drone in the woods behind his Ashford Lakes Drive home the morning of Nov. 23 instead stumbled upon human remains about 100 feet into the woods. The resident called the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office. The medical examiner said the remains have been there for at

least a year or two, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release. Investigators don’t yet know the age or sex of the remains, but the Sheriff’s Office news release noted that there were no obvious signs of trauma. In the second case, workers cleaning up hurricane debris on the beach north of Varn Park Nov. 28 saw bones sticking out of the sand and called the Sheriff’s Office. Investigators found a human skeleton in a shallow grave. The remains have been sent to the medical examiners office for analysis to determine age, sex and cause of death.

Before Pearl Harbor This is ultimately what looking closer at history teaches us: We are all bound to be surprised.

BRIAN MCMILLAN EXECUTIVE EDITOR

Two thousand, four hundred and three Americans died on Dec. 7, 1941, in the attack on Pearl Harbor. Any history student since that day might have read such a sentence, a mere speck of information in the numbing and unrelenting narrative of war and politics. Thankfully, we have some-

one like Sisco Deen around. He’s the curator at the Flagler County Historical Society, doing the painstaking work of preserving history and helping us to look closer and hopefully to put a face to a number like 2,403. The face that is perhaps most relevant to residents of Flagler County is James Brazier Booe, chief petty officer and band director on the U.S.S. Oklahoma. He was

on the deck, preparing his band, when the bombs were dropped. As Deen wrote about the event, “The surprise was complete.” Deen recounts the story of how Booe (pronounced like the word, “buoy”) and his family moved from Indiana to Flagler County in 1913, four years before the county was even given the name “Flagler.” Booe joined the Navy in 1919 and, thanks to his talent with music, became a band director some years later. I find myself captivated not only by the photo of Booe taken on the Oklahoma, but also by a photo from 1922, in which Booe is marching in a parade in New Orleans, dressed in a white suit and sailor’s hat, just one man in a sea of trombone players, far from Flagler County, and even farther from Pearl Harbor. At that time, there was no hint of World War II. As we read the history books, these events all seem inevitable, but the young Booe could not have known where he was headed. This is ultimately what looking closer at history teaches us: We are all bound to be surprised. We don’t know where we are headed. But hopefully we all feel more connected when we remember someone like James Brazier Booe, who died in our service at Pearl Harbor, 75 years ago.

TO ADVERTISE THANKSGIVING POEM CHILDREN I sometimes forget how wonderful my children are How thoughtful and how sweet Today, a week before I get my new knee They pooled their resources to purchase a raised toilet seat Now, I was never one to blubber aloud Or set my emotions free to frolic and caper But as I brushed the moist from my reddened eyes I wondered if now I’d have to raise the toilet paper VICTOR WASHKEVICH Palm Coast

The altar of diversity Dear Editor: I was pleased to see the editorial by Heather Beaven, “In Pursuit of a Representative Government,” in the Nov. 24 Palm Coast Observer. Not because I agreed with it — far from it — but it because brought into the open the foolishness of those people like Ms. Beaven who worship at the altar of diversity. According to her, we cannot have a good representative government unless the elected officials mirror the racial, gender and ethnic (among others) makeup of those people who are represented. Pardon me, but what hogwash! People should be judged on their character, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, or any other factor for which they have no choice. Why should we select our elected representatives any differently than we do our friends or associates? I don’t know of anyone who first looks at a person’s race, ethnicity, or sex before deciding whether that person can be a friend or business associate. The first thing we all want to know about them is their character. Are they trustworthy, kind, funny, thoughtful, have good judgment, etc.? Then we decide whether we would want them as a friend or associate. You want only the best for your friends and associates and that is the same way about our representatives. What ideas do they have?

Can they be trusted? Do they have integrity? Do they work hard? These are among many questions we want to know about candidates for elective office. The question should be who they are, rather than what they are. Thankfully the voters chose to reject the likes of Ms. Beaven at the ballot box, and we can only hope that others of her ilk will meet the same fate when they run. MIKE MCGUIRE Palm Coast

Be responsible with your campaign signs Dear Editor: This letter is to inform your readers of a local situation that although quite small in significance needs to be addressed. I just finished my campaign and was elected to the Flagler County Board of County Commissioners. One of the efforts of most of our city and county candidates during the campaign is to erect large campaign signs at major road intersections and near our highways to hopefully improve our chances of being elected. On private property, you are directed to get approval from the landowner before installing the signs. All well and good, but there is one last action required on the signs: The candidate is responsible for removing the signs in a timely manner. In the days following the election, I have done that,

including taking the wood frames apart and carrying the frames and signs away, leaving the location as it was. What I have seen from other candidates is that many of the signs are ripped off the wood frames, but the wood is left standing or thrown down and left at the site to rot and look bad. This small situation does not reflect well on our candidates, and if I were a landowner I would not be very encouraged to give permission to use the site again for campaign signs. It is impossible to tell which candidate is guilty of this action since the signs with their names were removed and only the wood frames remain. So in the future, when campaigns complain about getting access for signs, I hope they remember this situation. Finally, after I removed all the wood frames and nails from the 40 8-foot 2-by-4s, I donated them to Habitat for Humanity for possible reuse. As I said above, this is no big deal but a little extra effort turns a possible mess into something positive.

NEWS EDITOR

Judge Scott DuPont, who was recently re-elected to his position as a Sevent Circuit Court judge, is facing an investigative panel over allegations made on one of his campaign websites about his challenger, Malcolm Anthony, and statements DuPont made at a televised candidate forum. The Investigative Panel of the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission voted Oct. 28 to find that probable cause exists for proceedings against DuPont on five charges. The first charge alleges that DuPont’s campaign website linked to the results of an instantcheckmate.com search about Anthony. Instantcheckmate.com posts a disclaimer stating that its information may not be accurate. But, according to the formal notice of charges addressed to DuPont and filed Nov. 23, “in spite of those warnings ... you recklessly posted the results of the search.” The entries, all unverified, suggested that Anthony had used aliases and received parking tickets for parking in a handicapped zone, and that Anthony’s wife and daughter had been arrested. The second charge states that DuPont had improperly implied that Anthony had changed his name in 2013 or later, when the

name change had in fact been completed in 1990. The third charge states that DuPont, at a televised candidate forum, falsely alleged that Anthony had gotten a ticket for passing a school bus unloading children. The fourth charge alleges that DuPont, in the same forum, alleged that Anthony had cheated during a straw poll, when in fact DuPont had no information that Anthony was involved in the alleged incident. The fifth charge states that DuPont said at the forum that it wasn’t the role of a circuit court judge to determine the constitutionality of statutes, and that he’d stated that he’d previously refused to find statutes unconstitutional. In fact, the notice of charges states, DuPont had sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States and of the State of Florida, and his conduct, if proved, violates portions of both the Code of Judicial Conduct and the Florida Constitution. DuPont has 20 days from the Nov. 23 filing date to respond.

Ministry life behind bars:

First Baptist Church of Palm Coast men change lives in prison. JEFF DAWSEY SPORTS EDITOR

Most of First Baptist Church of Palm Coast’s Jail/Prison Ministry consists of retirement-aged men who have given up sitting at the beach to reach prisoners in Bunnell and Tomoka for Jesus Christ. “If it weren’t for the grace of Jesus Christ, I’d be where they are, because I’ve done as bad, if not worse, than those guys,” said Tom Miller, a volunteer. “I just never got caught. I was a big-time drug user and dealer.” Jerry Forsythe, a former thermodynamics scientist, was recruited by then-leader Stan Dubots and joined the jail ministry in 2002. They would disciple and evangelize the inmates once a week. The ministry was open to most of the inmates, including those who would be wearing leg-irons for the more serious charges. After several months, Dubots retired from the ministry, so Forsythe began to recruit some of his Sunday school class members. His most faithful co-worker to this day has been Jimmy O’Connor, a former New York State police officer. Around this same time, Prison Fellowship was conducting revivals at all the Florida state prisons in northeast Florida. During their participation at the Tomoka Correctional Institution, they discovered the faith-based Horizon Communities in Prison dormitory.

The FBCPC team began visiting the prison every Monday, and have continued to this day. “In the 12 years I have been going down to Tomoka C.I., First Baptist is the only church van I have seen at the prison,” Forsythe said. “More Christian volunteers are needed.” Since that time, Forsythe has added Miller, Dan Lujan, Jim Stanton and Roger Wendell, to name a few. Female Christian volunteers are presently being recruited to serve female inmates. When asked what his goal in life was, Forsythe said, “To get to heaven and take as many inmates with me as possible.” Jeff Dawsey

REMEMBER JOE MILANO?

Jerry Forsythe, Roger Wendell, Jim Stanton, Jimmy O’Connor and Tom Miller.

One inmate who has experienced both of the First Baptist ministries is Joseph Milano. Milano, the former Goomba’s Pizzeria owner, was sentenced to prison for aggravated assault. While incarcerated, Milano encountered FBCPC’s jail ministry, which he says helped change his life. Joe Milano’s testimony is as follows: “In the Flagler County jail, I gravitated to a Bible study in 2010. It was in that study where I first encountered two volunteers from Palm Coast, Jerry and Jim. I returned to Jesus, where I truly

belonged (as well as in jail), and I fully understood how and why I did what I did and wound up where I was. Jesus does not belong on a shelf to be taken down as needed, which was basically what I’d done. In reality, what I did was set myself up for failure. Jerry and Jim helped me see that. I am now Joseph Milano #C05208, having served five years into a 13-year sentence, and now I’m here at the Tomoka Correctional Facility, housed in the Faith Based Horizon Program. “Three times a week, we are blessed with the presence of volunteers from various churches; men of faith aid us in finding Christ

and staying with Him. During my first Monday night in the program, imagine my surprise and pleasure to see both Jerry and Jim stroll onto the dorm. Talk about blessings! These programs and these wonderful volunteers have helped me find my way back, back to the person I should be, back to my family and friends. I truly am not certain of what I would have done, had it not been for Mr. Kyle McQuillen, Jerry, Jim and others. “Prisons need all the volunteers possible, and one of my major goals in life is that once I am free, I will return as a volunteer and share all that I have gained.”

Barbosa blurs counseling credentials Maria Barbosa has been providing PTSD treatment for veterans and treatment for ‘sexual identity conflicts.’ State law does not recognize her credentials for those services. JONATHAN SIMMONS NEWS EDITOR

M

aria Barbosa, sworn in Nov. 22 as a new member of the Flagler County School Board, advertises that she is “licensed as a clinical counselor,” capable of treating depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder, among other conditions. But according to a Florida Department of Health spokesperson, Barbosa does not hold a state-sanctioned license for such services. When asked in an interview if she had a state license, Barbosa said, “It’s connected with the Christianity license. ... It’s from ACCCA.” The acronym ACCCA refers to the U.S. Agency for Christian Counseling Credentials and Accreditation. It is not a government agency but an Orlandobased business. Barbosa told the Palm Coast Observer that she has been offering counseling in Palm Coast and/ or Orlando for 10 years, treating people with trauma issues, including veterans with PTSD. “It’s the same almost as a clinical counselor, but it has theology in it,” she said, describing her services. “In children, I work a lot

with trauma. I do work a lot with domestic abuse, relationships between the parent and the child, stress release, depression, anxiety. ... I did work with the veterans for some time, when it comes to a trauma.” Barbosa, 53, earned her doctorate in Christian Clinical Counseling from an unaccredited college called Florida Christian University in Orlando. She said she attended for five years, commuting to school and graduating in 2008. After that, Barbosa acquired counseling credentials from ACCCA, founded and operated by Danilo Polanco, one of the counselors with Alpha Christian Counseling in Orlando. The business’ webpage, usaccca.com, states that it grants “licenses.” Applicants pay $175, plus $150 annually thereafter to renew. Barbosa also has operated a similar enterprise. She founded the ACCEL Leadership Institute. It sells a “license certificate and ID Card,” renewable annually for $95. It also sells coaching, “training and certification” packages for $480-$575 for titles including marriage coach, juvenile training coach, clergy pastoral leadership and parenting coach.

State law permits Christian counselors to provide pastoral counseling without a state mental health counselor license. The law is designed to protect clergy or pastoral counselors offering spiritual guidance from being charged with illegally providing mental health counseling. But the law also requires Christian counselors to be working under the auspices of an “established and legally cognizable church, denomination, or sect, and when the person rendering service remains accountable to the established authority thereof.” Asked with what church, denomination or sect she was affiliated, Barbosa provided none. “There’s kind of a little bit of a loophole, because if someone holds themselves out to be a Christian counselor, you’re not exactly held to the licensing laws in the same way, and that’s been a traditional problem in Florida, especially with a conservative governor,” said Michael Holler, ethics committee chairman of the Florida Mental Health Counselors Association. “So if she calls herself a Christian counselor, she might be able to fly below the radar there.” Holler also noted there are

“That person lives on the borderline between reality and psychosis. And if you’re not very careful handling that person … they can fly across that border and not come back.” MICHAEL HOLLER, ethics committee chairman of the Florida Mental Health Counselors

pastoral counselors who do good work, but they “know what their limits are.” Barbosa takes payment for her counseling services and has described herself on business cards as a Christian clinical counselor. But she precedes that description with the abbreviation “Lic.,” for “licensed.” The same business cards state that Barbosa offers, among other things, family therapy, which, according to Florida law, may not be practiced unless the practitioner “holds a valid, active license to practice marriage and family therapy issued pursuant to this chapter” or is a registered intern. Barbosa does not and is not. She also describes herself on her webpage at drmariabarbosa.com, as “licensed as a Clinical Counselor.” “If she has been calling herself licensed,” Holler said, “a Department of Health complaint can be made against her, and she can be sued by any of these people that she allegedly treated. “If she’s not licensed … you don’t just do this stuff,” Holler said. “I would put that in the same class as the fake dentist or the fake doctor. You can cause somebody to kill themselves.” Added Patricia Hurff, a licensed mental health counselor and a professor at the University of Florida’s counselor education program: “Once we get a license, we have to answer to the ethi-

HOW TO VET MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELORS leave.” A colleague at Alpha Christian Counseling Service in Orlando, where Barbosa worked before opening a Palm Coast branch, described her as a “wonderful person.” “She worked with us as a counselor with children and families, and everybody who worked with her was very happy with her, and they were very impressed,” Danilo Polanco said.

If you’re seeking a counselor or other mental health professional, check the professional’s background. “Just ask for the basic credentials first,” said Michael Holler, Ethics Committee chairman of the Florida Mental Health Counselors Association. “‘Are you licensed? In what state are you licensed?’” In some cases, he said, a mental health counselor may be licensed in another state but authorized to practice in Florida on a provisional basis. But a counselor in that situation should be able to provide paperwork verifying his or her eligibility to practice in the state. Just a listing as a “mental health counselor” or something similar on one of the numerous websites that aggregate unvetted listings of medical professionals is not

enough and can be misleading. Maria Barbosa, for instance, has a listing under the name Maria Pinto as a “mental health counselor” on a website called npidoctors.com; one on doctor.trustoria.com as a “mental health care professional,” “behavioral consultant,” “psychotherapist” and “psychology specialist”; she also comes up in a search for a “mental health counselor” on healthgrades.com. Florida consumers can verify a medical license on the Department of Health website, appsmqa.doh.state. fl.us/MQASearchServices/Home. “It’s always important for people who are seeking mental health counseling to really research about the person who’s providing that … that they’ve gone to a reputable institution and that they are in good standing,” added Patricia Hurff, a licensed mental health counselor and a professor at the University of Florida’s counselor education program.

person for whom English is a second language — she is from Portugal — to ever be elected to the School Board. She has a lengthy record of service to the community, including serving as a director for a group home for boys and volunteering as a crisis counselor (a position that does not require licensing) at the Family Life Center, a local domestic violence shelter. “She was very supportive of victims,” said Trish Giaccone, the center’s director. “She was really lovely to have as part of the team.

In an interview, Barbosa described some of her practices. She said she has used a technique she called “regression therapy.” It’s “similar to hypnosis, but a little different,” she said. “It takes you back to the time, to the location, and they relive it, and they experience it.” “Regression therapy” is not the proper term for the technique, Holler said. And the procedure Barbosa described risks re-traumatizing already vulnerable people, he said. “You have to be highly, highly, highly trained. I wouldn’t do that kind of thing,” he said, noting he has had 50 hours of training in hypnosis. People who have PTSD, Holler said, are in some cases also at risk of slipping into psychosis, as are people with other mental health conditions that someone not licensed might not recognize, such as borderline personality

Barbosa said she is aware of such risks and noted that she has taken classes in clinical counseling. “When you do regression, you have to have two people because of ethics,” she said, explaining that the second person could be a family member of the client. “Because they are on the stable line where they are very sensitive, and it’s like they are half asleep, not half asleep.”

“Wonderful person. She worked with us as a counselor with children and families, and everybody who worked with her was very happy with her, and they were very impressed.” DANILO POLANCO

One of the conditions for which Barbosa also said she has counseled is “sexual identity conflicts.” That’s not a mental health condition listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (fifth edition), but that’s a term used by Christian counselors offering to change gay people’s sexual orientation. Mental health associations have denounced the practice. When first asked whether she offered counseling for “sexual identity conflicts,” Barbosa said she has not advertised that kind of counseling. But when told that it is offered on her webpage, Barbosa said she had treated young people with “sexual identity conflicts” who were LGBT. But she said she did not try to change their sexual orientation or gender identity, stating that she only helped them to overcome the effects of bullying and low self-esteem.

PLAGIARISM IN 2014 When Maria Barbosa ran unsuccessfully for School Board in 2014, a FlaglerLive.com interview with her revealed instances of plagiarism. View FlaglerLive’s story here: https://flaglerlive. com/69220/maria-barbosa-plagiarism/.

“My job is not to make them different,” Barbosa said. “My job is only to accept what they are, for them to love themselves, and to be more positive what they are. However, if you want to go there, you can use the theology part, but that’s not my intention. “Theology is what is written in the Bible — if you want to follow that path. Normally, I don’t use it, because to me, it’s more important to make another person love herself and to accept what she is and to embrace society.” NO COMPLAINTS

Department of Health records show no consumer complaints filed against Barbosa. Likewise, Flagler and Orange counties’ court records show no lawsuits have been filed against Barbosa related to her counseling.

David Lydon, who made the Veteran of the Year presentation, began his duties as veterans service officer on Monday, Nov. 28. If he stays as long as Rutigliano, he’ll retire in 2033. Lydon is a major in the U.S. Air Force Reserve, with three decades as a law enforcement officer, and military training. He has been active in the Flagler County vet-

erans community and the high school Junior ROTC organizations, and was a volunteer driver for the DAV. Lydon retired in 2010 as a New York state trooper after 17 years. He was a criminal investigator for the last nine years of his duty. His community activities include being the first vice president of the Military Officers Association of America, Flagler County Chapter; a life member of VFW Post 8696, and serving on the house and planning committees. Lydon is also a member of American Legion Post 171, and the secretary of the Blue Knights Florida Chapter XXII.

NEWS EDITOR

A developer is seeking to buy a 35,000-square-foot retail space in Town Center to build a Wawa gas station and a Smoky Bones Bar and Fire Grill. The Palm Coast City Council discussed the proposal the morning of Nov. 29, meeting in workshop for the first time since newly elected Mayor Milissa Holland and City Councilman Nick Klufas joined the board. The developer, Unicorp, would be buying the land from the city of Palm Coast. One of the parcels would be bought for $800,000, and the price of an adjacent parcel would be determined after an appraisal. The land is located on Bulldog Drive, and some of it fronts State Road 100 — prime commercial real estate. “The corner Bulldog Drive and State Road 100, we could have sold that a long time ago,” City Manager Jim Landon told the council. “Everybody wanted that corner. But we have said all along, you need to bring more because … if you’re not willing to actually put some skin in the game and put

The Wawa and the restaurant would be built in phase one of the construction, said city Administrative Services and Economic Development Director Beau Fallout, then additional retail would be added in a second phase.

‘Words matter’: School Board member Colleen Conklin says Trump’s ‘vile comments’ affect children ‘I pray we come together as a country for the sake of the next generation, and take great care in what we say,’ she said. NEWS EDITOR

Cornelia’s Commercial Corner

School Board member Colleen Conklin read a statement Nov. 22 denouncing President-elect Donald Trump’s “vile comments” and linking them to a Nov. 17 incident in which a student at Imagine School at Town Center drew swastikas on the hands of two younger children of mixed race. Conklin’s statement, written as a letter to the editor for FlaglerLive.com (view it in full at flaglerlive.com/102097/conklintrump/), was her last speech as the board’s chairman before she passed the gavel to new chairman Trevor Tucker. “Words matter,” Conklin said, and the country should expect more from the man who will be its president. “Political leaders, both locally and nationally, must own what has been said and be bold enough to not accept it, denounce it and expect more from the person who will hold the highest office in the land,” she said, reading the statement. “For the good of our nation, we collectively should be rooting for the president-elect to succeed,” she said. “His failure is truly our failure. However, this doesn’t mean an automatic pass on the vile comments that have

been spewed over the last several months. This isn’t a Republican or Democratic issue. It’s about civility and integrity of the highest office in our country.” Fear-mongering and protests aren’t helping, she said, but neither is ignoring the presidentelect’s statements, “which have outraged individuals on both sides of the aisle.” Conklin said that as an educator and a member of the School Board, she often tries to think about things from a child’s perspective. Children have been listening to Trump on TV, she said, and, “It’s heartbreaking to personally hear children express fear about the man who is going to be our president of our country, all because of the color possibly of their skin, and worried that their family may be deported.” Also wrong, she said, is an environment in which parents tell their sons not to wear “Make America Great Again” caps for fear their sons may be harmed. Wrong too, she said, is accepting “that a middle school child attending Imagine School was simply drawing or playing when they placed a swastika on the arms or hands of another child.” Denying that incident’s connection to the election, she said, “is irresponsible.” Conklin said she was “search-

ing for common ground that we can all agree upon.” “I pray we come together as a country for the sake of the next generation, and take great care in what we say and do,” she said. School Board members Trevor Tucker, Andy Dance and Maria Barbosa, who was sitting on the board for the first time since her swearing in as a new board member that morning, did not address Conklin’s comments at the meeting. School Board member Janet McDonald, speaking after Conklin, said she hoped Flagler County children are learning in their civics classes the meaning of the Constitution and the rights and responsibilities associated with citizenship. “I hope that with what’s going on in the country — to echo your thoughts, Mrs. Conklin — I hope

that we spend time in our civics class at the upper elementary even the lower elementary, the middle and the high schools to really know what the Constitution means,” McDonald said. “This is an American issue. It’s not a divisive issue; it’s not a partisan issue. We all need to know what it means to be a citizen. I was really looking forward to talking about citizenship, to piggy-back on what you said, and I think the more we can arm our kids with what it really takes to be a citizen of this country, what our rights and responsibilities are — not just our rights, but our responsibilities to collaborate and contribute — I think we will arm them well, to go into the greater beyond.”

SPORTS Welcome to the rivalry

Newcomers power Pirates to Lockhart’s first win The Pirates beat the Knights 49-44. JEFF DAWSEY SPORTS EDITOR

Late in the third quarter of the Matanzas Pirates’ final game in the Kiwanis Shootout on Saturday, Nov. 26, at Matanzas, junior Chris Harrison sent shock waves through his team and Pirate Nation with a vicious dunk over a Creekside defender, signifying a change in Matanzas’ basketball culture. The Pirates would go on to beat the Knights 49-44, splitting their first two games and giving Donald Lockhart his first win as head coach. “The guys are buying into the system I’m putting forward, and I’m liking their effort,” Lockhart said. “We’re going to change the whole environment around here.” In their first few games of the season, the Pirates already look like a new program — and not only because everyone, including the coach, is new. Matanzas plays with high intensity, defending the entire court. The Pirates have at least four players who can challenge their defenders in one-onone ball, and they actually look like they’re having fun. “Coming from Palatka, we believed in having excitement,” Lockhart said. “I got some highrisers, but they don’t yet know their potential, so I’m trying to maximize it. I’m always challenging our guys.” Lockhart says the team is not playing at their full capabilities, but he does believe they’re heading in the right direction. “It’s going to take some time,” he said. “It won’t happen overnight, but we’re on our way.” The Pirates will be back in action against St. Augustine at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, at Matanzas.

t’s disappointing to cover what should be a rivalry game that lacks the rivalry environment. With FPC and Matanzas basketball, that environment of rivalry has often been lacking, because FPC owns both Pirates programs. But I think that’s about to change, at least for the boys. These schools’ football and volleyball games draw the most supporters from both sides, creating a lot of excitement. Hope causes supporters to flock to those rival matches. When it comes to the games that these school supporters know won’t go in their favor, all except family and friends tend to stay at home. But, as we’ve seen with Matanzas football in the last few years, everyone chooses to attend the rivalry game that has a buzz and can go either way. For the first time between the boys basketball programs, the Pirates are not only confident they can beat the Bulldogs, but they have already somewhat proven it. Matanzas beat FPC 65-60 in a November preseason game, putting the Bulldogs on notice that Pirates basketball will no longer lie down and take the uncontested loss. Judging by both games at the Kiwanis Shootout, Matanzas is longer, more athletic and can shoot better. New head coach Donald Lockhart is creating a culture in basketball that I haven’t seen at Matanzas. Players congratulate every player who subs out. They hustle to him during every timeout call. All players encourage those out on the court. It’s different. On the other hand, the Bulldogs are not playing at full strength. Two of FPC’s four returning starters are nursing injuries, and the other players are still developing chemistry. Coach Gary McDaniel always brings the best out of his group, so I have no doubt the Bulldogs will eventually get on the right track. To be fair, both teams will be a lot better two months from now, which makes for a better game. Mark your calendars, because this is setting up to be a rivalry game you don’t want to miss. And, for at least the upcoming seasons, both programs need to agree to play twice. It’ll be well worth it. This year’s sole game will take place at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27, at Matanzas.

FPC confident of a turnaround despite slow start The Bulldogs lost two games this past weekend. JEFF DAWSEY SPORTS EDITOR

The Flagler Palm Coast Bulldogs have struggled early on in the season, and dropped both of their games at the Kiwanis Shootout this past weekend. Grandview Prep downed the Bulldogs 62-56 on Friday, and Creekside beat them 49-34. FPC, which went 15-10 last sea-

son, was eliminated in the playoffs by Oviedo in the first round. They returned four starters, but two have yet to play this season, due to injuries. “Ga’Quawn’s injury is major, and the overall youth and inexperience is equally as major,” coach Gary McDaniel said. “There should be no question that in time we will figure it out and turn the page. But the question is, how much time will it take?” The Bulldogs will look to get in the win column against Seabreeze at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, at Seabreeze.

Shawn Roop

Local powerlifter breaks national records

Retired military vet and Palm Coast local Shawn Roop recently broke four national powerlifting records at the Orlando Barbell APF Southern States Championship Meet in Oviedo. Roop, 46, competed in the age 45-49 242-pound weight division and broke two deadlifts, a bench press and a total weight record. “The great thing about it (be-

ing the record holder) is, if you have no one else to beat, you can work on beating your personal best,” Roop said. “I knew I could break them, but now I want world records.” Roop had quit lifting in 1999 but returned to the sport two years ago this month. He will get his chance to break world records at the APF Raw Nationals, which will be held in May, in Orlando.

Nathan Hubbs

Pirates soccer riding undefeated streak The Matanzas Pirates have yet to drop a match and only tied against their crosstown rival FPC through seven games. Including preseason games, Matanzas has pitched four shutouts, allowing only seven goals while scoring 30. Junior Nathan Hubbs leads the team with 18 goals thus far, two being game winners. Daniel Ramirez trails him with three goals, one being a game winner. Ramirez leads the team with seven assists. Senior goalkeeper Brandon Mesmer has saved 31 shots against four allowed goals. The Pirates return to action against Lake Highland Prep tonight at 6 p.m. in Orlando.

Santa and Mrs. Claus visit Palm Coast Little League Santa took Christmas gift requests from local kids. JEFF DAWSEY STAFF WRITER

Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and their helpers visited Palm Coast Little League Nov. 26 to spend a few hours with baseball families and take Christmas-gift requests at the PCLL building at the Indian Trails Sports Complex. Santa and his crew ate pizza, watched Christmas movies, colored with the kids and took photos with families that wanted a sneak preview of the big guy a month before the big day. PCLL also had players register for its spring season, while several other families donated to the fund for families that aren’t able to afford the costs. “We want all kids who want to play to be able to play,” said Patrick Johnan, league president. “We have a limited number of scholarships available on a caseby-case basis. When someone requests to play but has difficulties paying the fee, we review the application form and vote on it.” All Flagler County residents ages 4-16 are eligible to register for spring baseball and softball season at pcllonline.com. More Santa visits: Santa and Mrs. Claus will be attending every city event and every Sunday night at the Fantasy Lights.

Mayley, Makenzie and Chase Henson brought a page full of requests, including Hatchimals, smart watches, Frozen Play-Doh and other items.

YOUR NEIGHBORS Breaking the

CYCLE A retired public defender teams with Community Problem Solvers at FPC. JACQUE ESTES COMMUNITY EDITOR

A

t the end of his career as an assistant public defender in Flagler County, Irwin Connelly realized he had represented generations of families since the mid-1970s. As he sat in court, next to the children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren of his initial clients, he started asking, “Why?” “It didn’t take long to realize that the key lies in the first three years of a child’s development,” Connelly said. “Study after study confirms that those first three years are crucial, and if good parenting doesn’t occur in those years, then it is unlikely that, by age 5 or so, deficits in language, cognitive and social skills can be corrected.” Connelly said he is “pretty obsessed by the whole subject,” and that there is a sense of “quiet desperation” when he thinks

about the possibility that a potentially genius newborn born into poverty who is not stimulated and exposed to language, cognitive and social input will likely remain in poverty, and continue that cycle. So Connelly went back to school — Flagler Palm Coast High School — to share his obsession with Diane Tomko’s Community Problem Solving class. “He came in as a guest speaker for the whole class,” said Zameena Phillips, one of seven students who decided to make Connelly’s project their own. “He is very hands-on with the project, and he is on the board for the (George Washington Carver) community center.” “We all immediately thought, ‘Yes, we want to be involved in this,’” Danielle Stoughton said. “Mr. Connelly is our project mentor. He comes in almost every week to talk with us,” Julie Hok said. “He’s been studying the problem a long time, and trying to make a policy.” The project was named L.E.A.D. Children — “L.E.A.D.” stands for Love, Engage, And Direct — and

the seven girls quickly realized they had hit upon a hot topic. The group is also working with Flagler Schools Early Childhood Education Coordinator Abra Seay. “We figured a lot of people who need the help don’t look for it,” Katherine Espinoza said. “Some don’t know what they are supposed to do.” “We want to do parenting classes on how to handle crying,” Danielle said. “How to cuddle with your child, and create an interaction and bond with them.” Pulling in community support, the team is working toward the major event of their project — a child fair at the George Washington Carver Community Center in Bunnell, on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017. The fair will be a one-stop place for services like vaccinations, screenings, proper car seat installation, and other services some families may not be aware of. “Most parents don’t look for resources,” Julia Hok said. “This is basically the resources coming to them, in one accessible place. Many are working, and it’s a way to sign up for services that are generally only open 9 to 5.” The event will also include food provided by Publix and Olive Garden, and vendors like a reading circle with the Dolly Parton Foundation, the Early Learning Coalition, Healthy Start, Help Me Grow, and health services from Memorial Medical Hospital in Daytona Beach. The group also hopes to have drawings for car seats, strollers and other items. A lot depends on how successful the group is at fundraising, whether it be financial or donations of new items. “The main goal of doing this as a project is to break the cycle,” Zameena said.

We don’t use that table, so the bench has been pushed under it, and chairs relocated to another table. Let’s see him jump from the floor with that belly. Buddy reminds us that it’s not good for our pets to eat people (or cat) food this holiday season. We were lucky; he could have gotten an upset stomach. There are some foods that can be fatal and absolutely should never be fed to pets,

y husband thought Buddy looked, well, to put it delicately, rounder. We feed him twice a day, 1/3 cup of high-quality food. The hurricane provided him with more yard to run in, so he’s getting more exercise. So why was he gaining weight? This question was answered when I walked into the kitchen and found him standing on the kitchen table next to an empty cat food bowl. While my husband was concerned about Buddy’s figure, I was concerned that the cat was cleaning her bowl every day. Samantha likes to graze throughout the day, which is why her bowls are not on the floor. So there’s Buddy, head down, big brown, and very pitiful, eyes looking up at me. A look that could be interpreted as, “Ah, mom, I’m sorry,” except the very next day the bowl was empty — licked clean again. Apparently our “starving” pup, jumps up on a bench

He died Oct. 4, 2015. The Grand Reserve Golf Club was the course Burns would often play after work. “I was friends with Larry for over 30 years, before he was a doctor and before I was a nurse. Our families were friends and we grew up together in Palm Coast, which was, then, an extremely small community,” said event organizer and Florida Hospital Flagler nurse Lisa Leonardo. “He was a great man, a great friend and a great doctor.” “Larry was a good friend and colleague, and I was honored to

STTH RRO UO N G G H E V E RY This year, Rotary Club of Flagler County’s Fantasy of Lights display will have an addition to Santa’s Village, thanks to students in Erin Weed’s art class and her after-school “Building Careers” Club at Buddy Taylor Middle School. The “Building Careers” Club is a new club and the result of a successful partnership between Flagler County Education Foundation and the Flagler Home Builders Association that provides support for the club. HBA leaders Debi Peterson and Jason DeLorenzo presented the idea to build and decorate the home for Santa’s Village, following a suggestion from the Rotary Club of Flagler County. Art teacher Erin Weed and Principal Nathan Lovelette enthusiastically approved the idea, and the students went to work. The new middle school club provides a bridge for students participating in elementary school builder’s clubs and high school construction, power and energy classes, also supported by HBA and Flagler County Education Foundation.

It’s a community program that provides gifts and companionship to seniors who may be isolated from friends or family during the holiday season. It’s funded through the support of local businesses, nonprofits, retailers and volunteers. “The holidays can be a troubling time for seniors. They may feel the absence or the distance of loved ones,” said David Hill, owner of the Palm Coast Home Instead Senior Care office, in a press release. “Be a Santa to a Senior provides a ray of hope for many seniors, and it means so much for them to know that people care and value them as members of our community.” The local Home Instead Senior Care office has partnered with Walgreens, Flagler County Senior Services Program, Cadette Troop 215 with Girl Scouts of Gateway Council to help with gift collection and distribution. Holiday shoppers are invited to participate by picking up a paper ornament at a participating location by Dec. 19. The ornaments feature seniors’ first names and their desired gifts. Visit Walgreens (5000 E. State Road 100, 1109 Palm Coast Parkway SW, 215 Palm Coast Parkway NE), visit BeaSantatoaSenior.com or call 986-1931.

Michael Vasseur, a local Edward Jones financial adviser, is supporting the the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program by using his office as a drop-off location for this year’s toy drive. Local residents may help needy children in the area by bringing in a new, unwrapped toy to the office, 120 Airport Road, Suite 1B, during regular business hours through Dec. 9. “With the holiday season around the corner, we are all getting ready for the festivities,” Vasseur said in a press release. “And as this is the season of giving, now is a great time to remember the less fortunate in our community.”
