More steps toward Plantation Oaks annexation

Changes in effect for court judges

Now that the city has annexed Plantation Oaks, the Planning Board will review a couple of administrative amendments to the comprehensive plan. At the board’s meeting on Thursday, Oct. 10, members will vote on whether to amend the comprehensive plan’s future land use map to include the annexation, as well as a second item to add language and provide map updates in the plan’s future land use, intergovernmental coordination and transportation elements to be consistent with the amended Interlocal Service Boundary Agreement with the county. Planning Director Steven Spraker said in an email that, after a city annexes a parcel, a city land use and zoning designation is required to be assigned. “Within the Interlocal Service Boundary Agreement area, the Florida Statutes specify that the land use change is required to be competed no later than six months after the Interlocal Service Boundary Agreement adoption,” Spraker said. City zoning would be assigned at a later date, and would adopt the county

Three Volusia County Court judges have recently changed division assignments. Judge Christopher Kelly has moved to the Courthouse Annex at City Island, where he will preside over county civil cases. Judge David A. Cromartie is moving to the Courthouse in DeLand, to preside over criminal misdemeanor cases. Judge Angela Dempsey will now preside over county civil cases in DeLand.

development orders for Plantation Oaks, which is a 55-and-up community north of U.S. 1. The first phase includes 427 manufactured homes and a clubhouse. The Planning Board will also vote on two other comprehensive plan amendments, which are bundled together as one item on the Oct. 10 agenda. The first is to add a policy stating that the 15-acre property at the northwest

corner of Airport Road and West Granada Boulevard will be used for utility purposes. The second also adds a policy, this one stating that the 38-acre West Ormond Park at the northeast corner of Airport Road and West Granada Boulevard will be used as a natural resource park for passive recreation. This was indentified in the 2006 Park and Recreation master plan, Spraker said.

There are no policy related amendments. The changes correct references that have changed over time and internal reference consistency, a city memo states.

Mayor Bill Partington:

‘Ormond Beach is stronger than ever’ JARLEENE ALMENAS NEWS EDITOR

T

he city Ormond Beach is “boosting the momentum” created over the past year, Ormond Beach Mayor Bill Partington said in a video address at the annual State of the City luncheon on Tuesday, Oct. 8. “We are focused on creating a future that serves our residents,” Partington said. “Ormond Beach is safe and comforting and easy to call home. It honors the character of our residents and respects the history that paved the way to our present. It draws us together and prepares us for our future success and because of that, the state of our city is stronger than ever.” The event was attended by the commission and city staff as well as local business leaders, the Ormond Beach Chamber of Commerce and other members of the community. The video address highlighted key developments and ongoing efforts by the city, touching on subjects like business retention, the airport business park, and parks and recreation. Partington spoke about the OB Life series, which he said “redefined” how the city communicates with residents. The initiative was recognized with a Florida Citizenship Award by the Florida League of Cities in June. “The momentum in Ormond Beach is building,” Partington said. “It is created with strategic plans that foster a stronger economy, improved quality of life and healthier environment.” ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

With the aerospace and aviation industry picking up speed in Volusia, Ormond Beach is trying to position itself to be in a strategic location for future growth in that regard by implementing part of its airport master plan, Partington said. Construction of the Runway

Ormond Beach Mayor Bill Partington speaks during the State of the City luncheon at the Halifax Plantation Clubhouse on Tuesday, Oct. 8.

9/27 extension is planned to start this fall, and, once completed, will measure 5,004 feet long. The city was also awarded state appropriations for phase one of the airport access roads project, which will connect the airport and business park. Partington said this is meant to open 80 acres for aeronautical development. Part of the city’s primary focus in its economic development strategic plan is retaining and expanding existing business, City Commissioner Troy Kent said in the video. That includes recruiting new jobs and capital investments. “This translates into high-paying jobs, employment opportunities closer to home and improved quality of life in the city,” he said. One example is Security First Insurance, which will soon move into new headquarters at Ormond Crossings. The average annual wage for its employees is $61,000. Present at the luncheon was Congressman Michael Waltz, who said he’d just touched down on the Halifax River in a Super Petrel seaplane. He said Ormond Beach is in “fantastic hands,” and that it is well positioned to attract investments with its small-town feel and “big city” amenities. “I have worked very hard to position myself to be as helpful as possible to all of you,” Waltz said. “That’s my job. I take the term ‘we the people’ very seriously.” QUALITY OF LIFE

In the video, City Commissioner Dwight Selby touched on one of the recent water quality issues: septic to sewer conversions. The city has

put forth $1.1 million for the design and permitting of the conversion for 702 homes in the north peninsula, as well as 64 homes within the city. City Commissioner Rob Littleton said most projects in the parks and recreation master plan have been completed, and the city will draft an update in the coming year. One project which is underway is the creation of a regulation girls softball field in the Sports Complex. “Ormond Beach really is a beautiful place that we want our residents to be able to enjoy,” Littleton said. City Commissioner Susan Persis spoke about the changes to the downtown made possible by the downtown master plan, which was recently updated. Notable projects in the downtown include the Ike Leary fishing pier and the Cassen Park Floating Dock. “What makes the city of Ormond Beach is you have a commission who have the heart of a servant,” Partington said. “Each of them represent their zones and the city as a whole with all of their capabilities, trying to make Ormond Beach a better place all the time, and then you have a staff, who also has a servant’s heart. They work as hard as they can do to listen to, respond to, and meet the needs of our residents.”

Judge revokes bond in child sex abuse case NEWS EDITOR

Senior Judge Michael Hutcheson has revoked convicted sex offender and former Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University professor Mark Fugler’s bond, ordering that the 61-year-old man be taken into custody on Monday, Oct. 7. Fugler, an Ormond Beach resident convicted in 2016 in a child sex abuse case, had been released from jail on Sept. 17 on a $200,000 bond — approved by Hutcheson — pending Fugler’s appeal. Hutcheson’s initial decision to allow Fugler’s release on bond had spurred opposition from Sheriff Mike Chitwood, who wrote to Chief Judge Raul Zambrano and asked him to overturn Hutcheson’s decision. Zambrano doesn’t have authority to do so. Fugler  was originally arrested by Ormond Beach Police on Nov. 4, 2016, after a 7-year-old girl’s mother reported to police that Fugler had made her daughter watch pornographic films with him, and that Fugler had exposed his penis to her daughter. The victim’s mother discovered this after finding entries in her daughter’s diary. Fugler was convicted on Aug. 15 of three counts of lewd and lascivious exhibition, three counts of displaying obscene material to a minor and three counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor for events that happened between

Aug. 19, 2014 and June 20, 2016. He has no other criminal record. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison. He is appealing his conviction on two grounds: 1) that his age was not proven at trial, and 2) that the court made a mistake in its ruling on the admissibility of child hearsay (the victim’s statement).  Hutcheson ruled that “there is an appealable claim that concerns a justiciable issue that is fairly debatable” for the counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor, but that there were none in the counts of displaying obscene material to a minor, as age is not an element, the Oct. 7 order states. The court also rejected Fugler’s claim against the child hearsay admission. Fugler will begin serving his sentence immediately, Hutcheson ruled. At the criminal hearing, two family members of the now-10year-old victim spoke before the court, both pleading for Fugler’s bail to be reconsidered. The victim’s grandfather said the victim chose to take the stand during trial because “she wanted to do everything in her power to make sure that Uncle Mark went to jail and could never do this to any other child again.” “Those were her words,” the victim’s grandfather said. “It pains me as a grandfather and her fishing buddy that she has to experience

that embarrassment and painfulness for a third time, and know that her attacker can walk free in the city of Ormond Beach after all these years of litigation.” Fugler’s defense attorney, Jason Forman, argued that the court can’t overturn Fugler’s bond without proof of misconduct or new evidence. He said Fugler had complied with the court while he was out on bail before the trial.  “Nothing has changed,” Forman said.  “What the state has alleged is nothing new.” Assistant State Attorney Ashley Terwilleger said that Fugler was a flight risk due to his financial status, and brought up the victim’s safety. By allowing Fugler to walk free, Terwilleger said, the welfare of the victim is in “extreme jeopardy.” Before trial, Terwilleger said, Fugler was considered innocent.

WORD FROM THE SHERIFF:

Now, he’s been convicted and is facing a 15-year sentence. Being granted bail today is different than before his trial, she said. “His secret life that he was living when he was committing these crimes is no longer secret, and certainly in of itself is a reason for the defendant to flee the jurisdiction of this court,” Terwilleger said. The victim’s mother also spoke before the court. She talked about how Fugler “manipulated” the family’s trust over several years, and believes Fugler would reoffend again if given the chance. She also told the judge about how she ran into him while walking to the Publix in The Trails on Friday. “How on Earth can this be within the law to let this happen?” she said. “The gravity of the injustice in that moment was overwhelmingly tragic.”

“I want to publicly thank Judge Hutcheson for reconsidering his decision and taking a fair look at the facts of this case. “We all owe a huge thank you to Assistant State Attorney Ashley Terwilliger, who made the clear and convincing argument in court last week that led to this ruling. “Thanks to ALL of you who stood up and made your voices heard on behalf of the young girl in this case. From the foreman of the jury, to all the advocates for survivors of sexual assault, to every single one of you in this community who spoke up in some way: You are proof of what we can accomplish when we work together. “Together we’ll keep working to make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else. Our elected officials Rep. Tom Leek, Sen. Tom Wright and Rep. Paul Renner are working on this issue as we speak. “While we celebrate a victory for justice and public safety, let’s also continue to support survivors of abuse like this brave young lady who testified in court, and her family who stood by her all the way. I have gotten to know her family through this process and thanks to them, I know she is going to be OK.” — VOLUSIA COUNTY SHERIFF MIKE CHITWOOD

Imagine a world without local news Three things you can do to support community news during National Newspaper Week.

BRIAN MCMILLAN EXECUTIVE EDITOR

Newspapers and journalists around the world are in the crosshairs — literally in the case of the five who were murdered at the offices of the Capital Gazette on June 18, 2018, and figuratively for the rest of us who are undermined by the term “fake news” on a regular basis from school children all the way up to the White House. But this week, which is National Newspaper Week, I challenge you to imagine a world without local news. FINDING FACTS

Imagine seeing two conflicting viewpoints on Facebook and feeling overwhelmed. Perhaps you wish you could get all the relevant facts in one place so that you can make your own decision and not be led astray by emotional opinions. Where would you turn if it weren’t for a journalist’s efforts? As editor, I have led

meetings with reporters twice a week every week for the past decade. Never once have we plotted against a candidate or other sources to make them look bad. On the contrary, we regularly challenge each other to ask whether it might appear to our readers that we are biased, and we try our best to reframe the story to eliminate any hint of it. Meanwhile, we are bombarded by press releases and story tips from political activists, begrudged employees, government entities, businesses and nonprofits — all of whom have an interest in telling the story in a way that will benefit them. The journalist’s job is to sincerely say thank you for the press release or the story idea — and then to see through it, to be skeptical of every claim, and to find out what really happened and what it really means to the reader. We then try to put those facts in terminology that a fifth grader can understand and do so in a way that will engage readers enough to get past the first paragraph. Fact-finding is the grand tradition of journalism, and it is why the freedom of the press is enshrined in our Constitution: If the press were ever to be controlled by those in power, we would lose our

balance as a society. But does all this really apply to community news? After all, we’re not exactly uncovering Watergate scandals in our little town. To some residents, what we’re doing makes an even bigger impact on their lives than Watergate did. I recently received an email from a resident who asked that I send a reporter to a neighborhood meeting. She was concerned that her elected officials were not paying enough attention to the residents, and she believed that if a reporter were in the room, the official would listen more intently. That is the service we provide. Without the community newspaper, how would you learn who is running for office and what they stand for? How would you learn of the tragedies of your neighbors across town — and what you

During National Newspaper Week, I invite you to do three things to support community journalism. First, avoid using the term “fake news.” If we have lost your trust, tell us why, and we will do everything we can to fix it. Second, tell us what news is important to you. Is it your grandchild’s 4-year-old birthday party? Email a photo, and we will put it in our Your Town section. Is it a troubling trend that you want us to investigate? Send us your story ideas and letters to the editor. Third, help our partners prosper. These pages are made possible by local business owners who believe that the Observer is reaching their future customers. So when you’re reading the Observer, consider the ads as well, and when you patronize those businesses, tell them you appreciate them for supporting the community newspaper. Our mission is to inspire our communities with extraordinary local content, and to help our partners prosper. Thank you for letting us be part of your community — this week and many more to come.

After many months of challenges with the shelter, Fahlberg was recently named the shelter’s new executive director, effective following the board’s approval on Monday, Oct. 7. She comes to the job with previous grant writing, fundraising and leadership experience; she served as the executive director of ONE Lowell Corp. in Massachusetts, and held various consultant and grant writing positions over the years.  The Ormond-by-the-Sea resident has a doctorate in philosophy and psychology from the Union Institute and University in Ohio, as well as a master of public health in population and international health from the Harvard School of Public Health in Massachusetts, according to her resume.  Going into her new role, Fahlberg said one of her main focuses will be fundraising for the shelter.  “Right now, we have a need

for about another half-million dollars to make sure that it runs really well, and then we need more because we want to get it up to the full capacity,” Fahlberg said. While she didn’t get to experience the difficulties of construction, she said that going forward, First Step will face different challenges. For her, it’s important that as a unit, everyone involved with the shelter is able to move on from the past. “This is a really important and significant entity and everyone in the county needs to embrace it,” Fahlberg said. With a grand opening scheduled for Dec. 11, what the shelter needs to do now is figure out how to implement the vision of aiding individuals out of homelessness by providing temporary housing and access to services. That’s where Fahlberg feels she can help. Between now and when First Step opens, Fahlberg said she’s aiming to get acquainted with all the services offered by the community. She’s also hoping to meet as many people as she can  — from Catholic Charities partners to the people the shelter

will serve. Fahlberg also said that the commitment of the board has been noteworthy, despite all the controversies and challenges. “How they have stuck it out all this time, how they have made sure that this vision has become a reality, is amazing to me,” she said. She has been on a number of nonprofit boards, and even had her own board at one point. Fahlberg said she’s never seen the same level of dedication from a board of directors. Once the shelter opens, it will need the community’s support,

DUDE, WHERE’S MY CAR? 8:49 p.m. — Old Trail Stolen vehicle. An Ormond Beach resident called police to alert them that her vehicle was stolen from her driveway within the past four hours. During the investigation, officers learned that the resident usually leaves the keys inside the car due to “living in a safe neighborhood,” according to the report. Coincidentally, the report notes that her vehicle had been spotted fleeing from another law enforcement agency that day, and that it had been observed in the Daytona area multiple times over the past couple of weeks. The resident maintained that she was the only person to have been in possession of the vehicle during the time span. The resident’s mother told police that she had never seen the vehicle before and didn’t know that her daughter owned it. Police advised the resident of the consequences of filing a false report, but the resident still advised she’d like to press charges.

RIBEYE RUNNER 11:44 a.m. — 1500 block of West Granada Boulevard Petit theft. A Daytona Beach man was arrested for shoplifting three ribeye steaks from a local supermarket. He admitted to the offense as soon as police conducted a traffic stop on his vehicle. Police report the man obtained a backpack from the store and proceeded to fill it with the steaks, as well as some clothing before trying to leave the store. He was stopped by the loss prevention officer, at which point, the man dropped the backpack and ran off. The supermarket seeks to pursue charges, and the man was taken to jail.

The employee gave police the name of an individual he felt had a “personal vendetta” against him, according to the report. But, since another bike was stolen from the same plaza that day, police believe the named subject isn’t related to the case. The employee told police he’d like to pursue charges if a suspect is located.

Sandcrabs improve to 4-2 after blowing out Halifax Academy Running back Chris Stroud scored three touchdowns against the Knights. RAY BOONE SPORTS EDITOR

Standing at 5-foot-5, Sandcrabs cornerback Evan Williams is one of the smallest players on Seabreeze’s roster. But he plays much bigger. “He’s our little pitbull,” Seabreeze coach Pat Brown said. “He plays like a true dog out there.” Late in the game against Halifax Academy, Williams recovered a fumble in the Knights’ end zone for a touchdown and picked off the Knights’ quarterback on the ensuing drive. The Sandcrabs (4-2) powered past Halifax 48-0 the night of Friday, Oct. 4, at Daytona Stadium. “Once we get our heads screwed on right,” Williams said after the game, “we know what we have to do to execute and win. It’s a mindset thing.”

Despite the lopsided score, the Sandcrabs were frustrated in the first quarter after they failed to score. Sandcrabs quarterback Thomas Davidson overthrew a wide open receiver on what would have been almost a suretouchdown on the first play of the game. On the next play, he was hit by a Knights defensive lineman and picked off. “We’re trying to get rid of those things,” Brown said. “Once we iron that out, we can be more dominant.” Receiver Latrae Bass opened the second quarter with a punt return

for a touchdown to give Seabreeze its first score of the game. Chris Stroud, who always played on offense before he made Seabreeze’s varsity team, has played defensive back so far this season for the Sandcrabs, playing sparingly as a reserve. He scored three touchdowns in his first game playing running back for the Sandcrabs. “The coaches didn’t know what I could do in the backfield,” he said. “I was able to show out. I did what I had to do.” Seabreeze faces New Smyrna Beach at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11, at New Smyrna Beach High School. “We can take a lot of positives from this game,” Brown said. “The one thing we have to key in on is coming out more focused. That’s one thing we were preaching to the guys. When we get up, we have to play through the whistle and play smart at the same time.”

Let’s See That

As it currently stands, Mainland is officially in danger of missing the 2019 FHSAA Playoffs. The Buccaneers (2-3) lost to Cocoa 36-22 the night of Friday, Oct. 4, at Cocoa High School. In Mainland’s three biggest tests of the season to date, the Buccaneers have failed to scratch out a win. The Buccaneers managed to take the lead over Cocoa late in the second quarter after a 10-yard pass from Buccaneers quarterback Taron Keith to receiver Lucas Williamson gave Mainland a 15-14 edge with 2:48 to play in

The Buccaneers regained the lead again after an 80-yard touchdown run from Keith put Mainland up 22-21 with 6:58 to play in the third quarter. Cocoa scored 15-straight points and ended the game by intercepting a Mainland pass attempt in the final minute of regulation.

eventeen people waded into the ocean at dawn on a recent Saturday at Andy Romano Beachfront Park. After getting past the breakers, they swam north as the sun rose. Apparently, there’s nothing like a 1.5-mile swim to start the day. And then a 26-mile bike ride around the Loop. And then a 5K run. It’s the Saturday routine for the Ormond Beach Triathlon Club. Members say they have a bet-

ter quality of life because of the physical fitness, but the main thing is the camaraderie. There’s a lot of good-natured kidding but they also support each other, with the more experienced helping new members. “We compete and want to beat each other, but we want the others to have their best race,” said Matt Banker. The “club” is actually just a group of friends who worked out together and started a Facebook page in 2012 to communicate about workout times, upcoming

iron man competitions, etc. Now they can have as many as 30 people taking part in a Saturday workout. There’s a wide age range with some in their 60s, such as Paul Rice, local attorney. A lifelong surfer, Rice was a lifeguard from 1977 to 1982. “I always considered the ocean my life source,” he said. “I grew up on the beachside. The ocean is good for the soul.” Rice competed in ironman events for 23 years, but then retired. He continues to work out with the club for the physical fitness aspect. THE OCEAN: A GREAT EQUALIZER

Jae Hilgers, 45, is one of the few women. Having three children close in age, she knew there would come a time when they would leave the nest and she would need an interest of her own. She started running and later decided to mix in the other sports. Now she does a triathlon with a total of 70 miles, she said. There are several different lengths of triathlons. The beginner ironman is known as a sprint, with a half-mile swim, 12-mile bike ride and 5K run. A half ironman is a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike ride and 13.1-mile run. Another former lifeguard, Phil Brennan, said there are people from all walks of life in the group, but you can’t tell the social status when the competition begins. “The ocean is the great equalizer,” he said. Dominico Bui started walking for exercise and later fell in love with riding a bike. After a friend introduced him to swimming, he got addicted, he said.

“We may go out and party but we’re in bed by 8 p.m.,” Driscoll said. “I’m zonked from working out that day. And your body has to recover for the next day.” While the distances of ironman competition are long, Driscoll said the time goes by fast. During the race, it’s an “in-the-moment” experience. You’re thinking about form and keeping feet and hands in the proper position. While working out during the week, Driscoll likes to listen to music, but the competitions require concentration. Naomi Ventura, a founding member who enters about a dozen competitions each year, said the triathlon provides an escape. “It’s a great stress relief and has helped me a ton in my actual dayto-day life, not just athletically but also mentally,” she said. Swimming in the ocean as the sun comes up is beautiful and relaxing, she said. Of course, there are also hazards along the way, such as automobiles while riding a bike. “You have to be aware of what’s going on,” she said. “Always assume they don’t see you.” Find the club on Facebook at Ormond Beach Triathlon Club.

Congrats to FNAME Scholarship Winner Kristen Stahl Best of Luck to the First UCF Award Winner

BUSINESS OBSERVER Security First chief honored The nonprofit consumer advocacy group, the Federal Association for Insurance Reform, has selected Melissa Burt DeVriese, Security First chief administrative officer and chief legal counsel, as the 2019 recipient of its Founder’s Award. “She has been integral to our success in helping Floridians protect one of their most valuable assets, their homes,” said Jay Neal, FAIR’s president and chief executive officer. Locke Burt, founder, chairman and president of Security First Insurance, said in a press release that she played a leading role in changing Florida law to permit the development of flood coverage in the private sector, and now private companies offer lower rates than available from the National Flood Insurance Program. She also played a key role, he said, in changing Florida law to allow companies writing auto insurance to offer discounts to customers who purchase homeowner insurance.

Upcycle shop back from the ashes

Martha Lyons has re-opened Creative Living by Marty after a fire.

A

fter a fire shut down Creative Living by Marty for a couple of months, the business in Palm Plaza has reopened in a larger space. While the fire resulted in a complete loss of merchandise, the new larger location gives owner Martha Lyons optimism for the future. She’s now in Suite 9A in the plaza, located at 600 S. Yonge St. Lyons specializes in what she calls “creative upcycles,” home décor, gifts and decorations repurposed from thrift store, yard sale or donated items.

An electrical fire in July left a coat of soot on everything, and couldn’t be cleaned from the merchandise. Losing everything was hard. “There were a lot of pretty things in there,” she said recently. The past couple of months were stressful, as she worked into the night after her regular Monday-Friday job making new items and getting her new store ready. But she was feeling optimistic on Grand Reopening day, Sept. 28.

“It turned into a positive,” she said. “Something good can come out of something bad.” She now has room to have her own workspace and to display large furniture. There’s also a permanent place for crafting workshops. In addition to scheduled classes, customers can bring their own item on Saturdays and use the shop paints for a fee. Lyons is available for advice. “A lot of people want to paint but are afraid to try it,” she said. “Start with something small like an ornament.” Lyons is a premier retailer for Dixie Belle paint, a chalk mineral paint. Lyons enjoys giving new life to “previously loved” items and sometimes things take on a new purpose. She has a pet bed made from a newspaper stand and a bench made from a toy box. She has a knack for seeing possibilities for old items. She’s even rescued things from the side of the road. “It’s crazy what people throw out,” she said. Find the shop on Facebook, Instagram or at www.creativelivingbymarty.com. Call 386299-9248.
