Property tax rate drops at final approval



Gas stations accused
of price gouging

In the wake of hurricane
Ike, local gas prices sky-
rocketed, and the State
Attorney General's Office
began investigating
reports of gouging. In
Volusia County, the office
tells WESH 2 they are look-

Change means a few extra dollars
in homeowners' pockets

By Bethany Chambers
Residents who recently
received notices in the mail
regarding their city proper-
ty taxes for next year are in
for a surprise.
The rate has dropped.
On final approval last

week, the city commission
voted to decrease the prop-
erty tax rate to $5.42 per
$1,000 of taxable value.
The rate, which takes
effect Oct. 1, was tentative-
ly approved at $5.61 earlier
this month. Both rates are
,below the rolled-back rate,
or the rate that would bring
in the same revenue as the

year before, excluding new
City manager Jim
Chisholm proposed the
decrease after making
adjustments to the budget,
which included deferring
$260,000 worth of public
safety vehicle and equip-
ment purchases and taking
$705,000 out of the city's
"After making all the
adjustments and listening

to everybody about how we
need to find ways to cut
our budget, we've actually
gone back and taken your
suggestions," Mr.
Chisholm said during the
meeting. "We're sensitive
both to the plight of our
community and the deci-
sions we need to make."
For the owner of a
$200,000 home, the rate
drop will mean an addi-
tional $21 in savings per

year, interim finance direc-
tor Michael Robertson
said. The owner of a
$70,000 home will save an
extra $4 a year.
City taxes only represent
about 25 percent of a prop-
erty owner's tax bill, Mr.
Robertson said.

Six months later, fire's effects linger

Mother not
charged, faces
other legal woes
By Bethany Chambers
months after a fire claimed
the life of one of her chil-
dren, permanently scarred
another and destroyed her
family's home, Robin Cain
still flinches when she sees a
Often, she said, she has
flashbacks to the night that
turned her family's world
upside down.
"It's like a really bad
dream," she said.
Last week marked the six-
month anniversary of the
March 16 fire at the family's
South Segrave Street apart-
ment that killed Ms. Cain's
four-year-old daughter
Krystal and severely burned
Krystal's twin sister,
It also marked the end of a
criminal investigation of Ms.
Cain for her role in the fire.
Ms. Cain, 37, admitted to
drinking the evening of the

fire, which officials and
some family and friends
believe was accidentally
started by one of the chil-
dren in the home. Earlier
this year, the Florida
Department of Children &
Families said Ms. Cain was
negligent the night of the
firefor not supervising her
However, Ms. Cain will
not face charges for the fire
and committed "no crimi-
nal violations" in the death
of her young daughter, offi-
cials from the Daytona
Beach Police Department,
Division of the State Fire
Marshal and Office of the
State Attorney said in a
press release.
The news came as a dis-
appointment to relatives of
Robert Cain, Mrs. Cain's ex-
husband and the father of
the twins and their 5-year-
old brother, Chase.
"I think it stinks," said his
mother, Susan Cain.
The children were visiting
Ms. Cain and their half-sis-
ter, Sheyenne Lundgren, the
weekend of the fire. Mr.
Cain, who shared custody at
the time of the fire, received

sole custody of his two chil-
dren after the fire and is seek-
ing to make it permanent. He
could not be reached for
comment last week.
For Ms. Cain, though,
having the charges dropped
was one of the brightest
points since the fire.
She has also recently
regained custody of 17-year-
old Sheyeine, a senior at
Mainland High School who
has been named Scholar of
the Week recently and is a
homecoming queen nomi-
nee. Sheyenne has four
hours of visitation a week
with her siblings.
"It's a relief I'm not getting
any charges pressed against
me," Ms. Cain said, "and I'm
happy I have Sheyenne
Ms. Cain does, however,
face other charges, stem-
ming from an Aug. 28 arrest

sion of a controlled sub-

by the Daytona Beach
Police Department, Ms.
Cain stole money from Wal-
Mart, where she was
employed, on three sepa-

rate occasions. She admit-
ted to taking a total of $930
at the time of the arrest,
telling officers "she fell on
hard times and she used the
money on gas," the report
She admits she took the
money, but says she doesn't
know why.
"I kind of left my mind I
guess," she said.
At the time of her arrest,
Ms. Cain was carrying
Xanax, a medication used to
treat anxiety and depres-
sion, without a prescription
bottle. Ms. Cain said she has
a prescription for the med-
ication that she will provide
at a court hearing next week.
Although it's not clear
what affect this recent arrest
will have on Ms. Cain's bid
to regain custody of her
kids, she has completed
parenting classes and grief
counseling as required by
the court, she said.

School bus cutbacks lead to overcrowding, delays

Some routes resumed; officials monitoring situation

By Jeanne Willard
When school started this
year, residents saw fewer of
the familiar big yellow
school buses on the streets.
As part of a cost-saving
measure, the Volusia County
School District initially cut
more than 55 school buses,
eliminating routes and bus
stops to more than 26,000
students who utilize district
The cuts were designed to
save fuel, wear and tear on
buses and reduce personnel
costs, district officials said.
Although the measures
may have saved money, hav-
ing fewer buses led to some
logistical problems, district
officials acknowledged.
Irate parents complained
about late buses, students

left behind and over-crowd-
ing that left some buses with
standing room only.
On the front line of those
complaints were bus drivers
such as Edna Mitchell,
whose route covers an area
from Ormond Beach to Port
"I've been called every-
thing except a nice lady,"
Ms. Mitchell said. "Parents
expect miracles. It's not the
driver's fault."
Drivers don't have control
over the bus stops or routes,
she said.
However, the five-year
veteran driver agreed that it
hasn't been smooth sailing
for parents, students or driv-
ers this year.
"The buses are more over-
crowded," she said. "Way
Ms. Mitchell will not allow
students to stand in her bus,

which means she has to
leave children behind if
there are not enough seats.
"It's unsafe for elementary
children to stand on a bus,"
she said.
On one occasion, Ms.
Mitchell said she broke her
own rule and let three chil-
dren stand.
"No more," she said.
She doesn't blame the
school district, however, cit-
ing voter approval of prop-
erty tax breaks that have
impacted the county budg-
"Volusia County is broke,"
she said. "If they don't have
the money to pay extra driv-
ers then they can't do it."
Holly Hill resident Tammy
Johnson said her 13-year-
old daughter was initially
riding a standing-room-
only bus to get to Ormond
Beach Middle School.

Ms. Johnson drives her
daughter to her assigned
bus stop, which is three
miles from her home, a mile
further than last year, she
"There's no way I'd let her
walk by herself," Ms. John-
son said.
What 'irks her is the fact
that buses still stop at the
closer bus stop to pick up
students headed to OBMS.
So, she's driving her
daughter past the nearest
bus stop to drop her off at
this year's assigned route.
When she contacted dis-
trict transportation officials,
she said she was told that
assigned routes could not be
While she understands
the district's financial chal-
lenges, the experience has
been frustrating, Ms. John-
son said.
Greg Akin, Volusia County
School's director of trans-

portation acknowledged
problems, but said progress
has been made on resolving
most of the issues.
"I think most of that has
been worked out," he said.
"We added 15 buses back."
To date the district is still
operating with 38 fewer
buses than last year, he said.
Some of the new routes
were added recently, so dis-
trict officials are continuing
to monitor the issue, mak-
ing changes as needed, he
The district tries to assign
students to the closest bus
stop, but that's not always
possible, he said.
"Changes occur daily," he
said. But, "complaints have
dropped tremendously."
Ormond Beach Middle
School principal Carl Persis
said the start of a new
school year is always a bit
chaotic, but this year was
even worse because of

schools closing during
Tropical Storm Fay.
"We have 'had such a
bumpy start to school this
year, stopping and starting,
with the storms," Mr. Persis
said. "The second day of
school was the first day all
over again."
Typically, it takes a couple
of weeks to sort out glitches
in the bus schedules, he
Initially seven of the 10
school buses servicing the
school were arriving up to
45 minutes late, and then it
was down one late bus, he
The situation has
improved, he said, but not
completely resolved.
"We are still having more
parents driving children
that we used to,", Mr. Persis
said. "Some parents don't
have confidence in their
particular bus."

The chaos surrounding
Sen. Obama's visit may
become a common scene
here in the coming months,
according to one local politi-
cal expert.
T. Wayne Bailey, a profes-
sor of political science at
Stetson University who
attended Saturday's event,
said he believes Volusia
County will again play host
- to Sen. Obama, his run-
ning mate Sen. Joe Biden and
Republican opponents Sen.
John McCain and Gov. Sarah
Palin, too.
Aside from rallying the
faithful and enticing the
media, a scheduled appear-
ance is often what it takes to
win over undecided voters,
he said.
"Some voters don't want a
media interpretation; they
want to hear it straight from
the candidates' mouths," he
said. "I met several people
who were not subscribed to a
candidate and were testing
their beliefs and their com-
fort level with,(Sen. Obama).
They weren't the majority,
but elections aren't won by
majorities; they're won by

Police pour 'a ton of
resources' into visit
Local law enforcement
agencies worked together
when tasked with accommo-
dating the hordes of support-
ers who waited in long lines
to get tickets on Friday and to
make it through security
checkpoints at the event Sat-
The last minute visit sent
police agencies scrambling
to handle the visit, officials

"This was very well run for
such short notice," said Day-
tona Beach Police Chief
Michael Chitwood, who was
on the scene Saturday.
South Daytona police were
caught by surprise on Friday
when crowds started lining
up for tickets at a Beville
Road storefront, Lt. Ron
Wright said.
Daytona Beach officials
firmed up security plans,
which included a SWAT team
presence, less than two days
before the event, Chief Chit-
wood said.
His department hasn't cal-
culated a cost yet,. but said
his budget took a hit.
"We've poured a ton of
resources in here to make
sure everything went
smoothly," he said. "I got a lot
of people here on overtime."
The event went off with
only one hitch: Some atten-
dees with counterfeit tickets
got into the event, leaving
others out on the pavement.
Despite that, Oak Hill resi-
dent Germayne Farrell, 36,
who was turned away,
remained upbeat and stayed
outside during Sen. Obama's
"I'm just happy to be in the
environment of this rally," he
Playing heavily in the
crowd was a national media
presence. "Three busses full"
of Sen. Obama's traveling
press corps made the trip,
according to a campaign
spokeswoman, in addition to
56 regional media members.
The national and local
attention combined to make
for a historic event for Day-
tona Beach, Chief Chitwood
"It's a great event," he said.

the city to have a presidential

In response to 'Local doc goes
for cutting edge without cutting'

That was a great article on the outstanding periodontist
Dr. Bergens. Our community is blessed to have him here.
My dentist is like that; he has the latest hi-tech equipment
combined with the compassion to sketch what he is going
to do.
And his voice is warm and kind when he gives me instruc-
tions. So I am very grateful to have such a fine dentist.

In response to 'Northern rules
don't work in Florida'

While I do agree with no 5-cent tax on bottles and cans, I
have to say that a big majority of Florida is made up of
northerners taxpaying, land-owning northerners.
So if you want to talk about trash, maybe you should open
your eyes and look to your lawmakers, who I might add are
probably from somewhere other than Florida.

In response to 'Pro-life
wolves in sheep's clothing'

I will try to answer the ranter's questions and criticisms of
pro-lifers. As with all social and moral viewpoints, different
people have varying logic behind their beliefs, so this is my,
personal response and is not intended to speak for all pro-
Firstly; the question of when does a fertilized human egg
become a human being cannot, with absolute certainty, be
answered by any human being that I have ever known. I do
not have the wisdom to know the answer, and if any pro-
choice advocate has the wisdom, I would like to know from
whence it came a divine being? Their own intelligence?
Please, someone, lead me to this great place of knowledge.
In that I do not have the answer, it is only prudent to err on
the side oflife. If the ranter's conclusion is correct, then there
Sis no killmng"bf human life caused by abortions until such
rime as the "fertilized" egg is outside the womb, "has drawn
its fifsf brbatrh and is clearly living separate on its own." But.,
what if, just what if, the pro-choicers have made a mistake in
their judgment and, in fact, human life does begin at con-
ception or at some point in time prior to birth. I for one am
not willing to accept the potential responsibility of killing
millions upon millions of innocent and helpless human
beings, and I simply cannot comprehend how others can do
I understand the turmoil that carrying to birth a baby of
.incest, rape or with other debilitating conditions may bring
to the mother and others. To this I can only say that such cir-
cumstances are beyond the control of the baby and society
has the moral obligation to protect and provide it with all
rights and privileges afforded all others.
Secondly, the inference that pro-lifers, as opposed to pro-
choice'rs, make war and are willing to kill "babies unable to
compete in our competitu.e society" is based on emotion,
not fact. I do not know, and I challenge the ranter to name
one "pro-lifer" who has made war against any nation or
group that has not been responsible for the killing of inno-
cent people.
Further, adults with the mental capacity to know the dif-
ference between right and wrong have an obligation to live
within society's rules, and thosewho choose to violate those
rules must be subject to the consequences of their actions.
SWhether such consequences should include the death
penalty for the most heinous of crimes against nature, such
as rape and first-degree murder,,is not a question of"killing
babies" but rather one of a society's moral judgment regard-

from the self-defense course offered by our local police
Last night, I had the pleasure of participating in a Self
Defense Awareness & Familiarization Exchange seminar
conducted by Officers Dave Miller and Jerry Zito and left
feeling "armed" with a plethora of "weapons" and a confi-

While this seminar was only two hours, these officers

Speaking as one of those taxpayers, I deeply believe that it

Airport idiocy

It is incomprehensible that our elected city officials are
spending valuable time responding to some idiotic com-
plaint about noise relating to the operation of New Smyrna
Beach Airport. It is beyond me why such a complaint should
be given any credence whatsoever.
An airport is an airport is an airport, and with airports,
there has always been the inherent noise stemming from the
running of aircraft engines. The NSB airport has been there
for more than 50 years, and yes, the aircraft using it made
noise then and still make noise. It does not take a rocket sci-
entist or even a 3 year old to recognize and understand this
Requiring pilots to alter flying standard approach and
landing patterns could compromise safety of pilots, crew
and passengers and also the quality of training of student
Even more amusing and astounding is that people who
moved near the airport contend that the city should have
warned them that an airport generates noise. Is it possible
that a person would buy or rent a house near an airport and
(1) not know they were near an airport and (2) not know that
airports create noise?
If these few complainers feel that the city owes them a
warning about the airport noise, then by default, the city
would be obligated to do something to lessen or eliminate
such noise for people in the area who live near or right next
to the railroad tracks.
Why aren't those people up in arms calling for the city to
lessen or eliminate noise caused by trains passing through
our area? What about people who live near Pub 44? A lot of
noise is created there at times.
In Daytona Beach, I don't hear about people going to the
city commission asking that they reduce or eliminate the
horrendous noise created at Daytona International Speed-
For the city leaders, the answer is and has always been
extremely simple: "Airports make a lot of noise. If you object
to the noise, move somewhere else." Case closed.
Get on with more important city business.

In response to 'City sued over
failure to disclose airport noise'
Many people have signs in their yards in my neighborhood
about wanting no airplane noise. Mr. Reeves, who recently
bought a house near the airport, takes the cake!
The article states that the "seller is required to notify
potential buyers of anything that would affect the desirabili-
oty or value of the property," yet he is suing our city.
What does one expect when they live near an airport? I
have lived just a block away from it for more than 60 years,
and I will not put a sign in my yard, nor will I complain. The
airport was here before I moved here.
Mr. Reeves is now spending my tax dollars because the city
didn't warn him of the noise, even though he knew of the
proximity of the airport and was looking forward to using it
for flight instruction.
I hope he loses the case, and if he does, I will be glad to

supply the tissues to wipe his tears.
Then there are those who live in a higher priced neighbor-
hood near the airport who want all air traffic diverted from
their area so it will fly only over the "lower-priced" neighbor-
hoods or move the airport to another area. At whose

Taxpayers could foot the bill for lawsuit

It seems ridiculous when people move to our community
and start complaints or frivolous lawsuits at the expense
of our local taxpayers.
When a person moves near the airport and brings a lawsuit
against the city of New Smyrna Beach, the legal expense to
defend such a claim is paid from the funds provided by the
local taxpayers.
It seems even more ridiculous when the person who is
bringing such legal action is said to have lived in New Smyr-
na Beach previously and even, according to a news item, had
previously considered taking flight lessons.
The New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport was built in the
early 1940s and was used as a naval'air base. The coastal
patrol flew aircraft along the beach to spot and bomb enemy
submarines or enemy aircraft if they attempted to come
ashore. They protected the lives of many of our citizens, and
we should be grateful for this.
It's about time certain people stop complaining and count
their blessings about our municipal airport. They should
respect the wonderful purpose it has served in the past and,
and the wonderful purpose it still serves to the economy of
our community.
People should do their own research about our communi-
ty and not put this burden on our city or taxpayers. So, if you
moved from somewhere else and you don't like New Smyrna
Beach, why don't you move or doesn't the perfect Garden of
Eden still exist?

In response to 'Edgewater envisions future;
Visioning sessions hosted by developer, city"

I simply could not believe what I read. The developers of
Restoration, an 8,500-unit residential development pro-
posed to be built on mostly swamp land west of Interstate
95, is hosting, paying for and orchestrating a %isioning ses-
sion so that Edgewater can figure out what it wants to be
when it grows up. And, the' ciy council and city manager
expect the people of Edgewater to believe this will be a fair,
impartial and unbiased visioning session?
Then, the developers stacked the audience not with peo-
ple who. live here in Edgewater, but with landowners who
own land here but live somewhere else.'
As far as I'm concerned, this process is a farce and the city
just accepted a $100,000 "bribe" from the developer to say
that the city wants to look like projects proposed such as
The developer has enough money to buy his way in most
matters, and it seems he has done this in Edgewater. He
doesn't care about Edgewater; all he cares about is making
his money. Once he's finished, he will leave this area, and all
the problems created by his project and his visioning session
will be left for the people who live here to deal with.
They are relying on the stupidity and gullibility of local res-
idents to swallow what they come up with in these sessions
they call visioningg."
This truly makes me embarrassed to say I live in Edgewa-
ter, and the city manager and city council should be
ashamed as well.

Citizens of Edgewater have no vision

This, according to City Manager Barlow, can now be recti-
fied if we buy in to the sham being fed us through the
"VisioningWorkshops" conducted by GS Florida Developers.
And thus miraculously the vision of the "Edgewater 20-year
dream" will be realized in the hands of these benevolent pro-
tectors of the environment, a.k.a. GS Florida.
Let's question their motives for even using the word
restoration in their proposed project. They have apparently
already received the blessing of our city council. Why else
would they allow this charade to continue?
Maybe this is the "secret plan" that Mayor Mike Thomas
spoke of after the much publicized attempt (but soundly
rejected by the citizenry) to sell us the Regions Bank building
for a new City Hall. Has the developer now promised him a
new office building?
We cannot sit idly by and allow the destruction of the envi-
ronment west of Interstate 95. If we allow this project to
commence, Edgewater will become just another small-town
destroyed by "economic development." And as so many oth-
ers in this great state, with resultant loss of wildlife and its
habitat, pollution of the environment, crime, political cor-
ruption and more.
The real losers are the citizens of Edgewater for genera-
tions to come. There will be no "restoration" by any develop-
er, that much is for sure. Once destroyed by these develop-
ers, nature can never be restored. We must stand up for our
rights and demand our voices be heard.

CRAs are unfair, misuse of taxpayers' money

Community Redevelopment
What is a CRA? CRAs.are a


tactic to create a pool of tax
dollars for private develop-
ment incentives in areas
that are labeled "blighted."
This pool gets bigger when
property values increase,
when tax rates increase, or a
double whammy, when
both happen. In good times
or bad, the CRAs will always
get their money because it is
hidden within legitimate tax
collections across most of
the items in your tax bill.
The most well-known fail-

ure is the documented fraud
and corruption in Daytona
Beach CRAs, which are Volu-
sia's largest. The best reason,
however, is a fundamental
flaw in CRA logic. There is
unfairness to every Volusia
County taxpayer who lives
outside of the CRA because
they get stuck with the bill
yet receive no benefit. All
taxpayers have to show for
CRAs are past-due promises
of "ifwe just help them build
this one more project, pros-
perity will follow."
Does Daytona Beach look
more prosperous to you:
after 20 years of CRAs? Even
in law-abiding CRAs, most
dollars are spent on give-
aways instead of more
meaningful and permanent

infrastructure upgrades for
the small area that was
allegedly "blighted."
How do our elected lead-
ers justify saddling every
property taxpayer with extra
taxes that mostly benefits a
few well connected individ-
uals? Tax base growth.
Unfortunately, the rev-
enues from this tax base
growth, by law, can only be
reinvested back into the CRA
giveaway pool, never bene-
fiting the taxpayers at large.
Today our taxes are higher
than necessary due to the
current CRA set asides, and
it will get worse. The CRA tax
base growth will never go
toward paying for their own
services until the CRAs are
eliminated. As a result, all

taxpayers will suffer another
round of tax increases to pay
for the additional services
for the more intensely devel-
oped CRA areas.
Volusia County taxpayers
have yet to feel this second
and larger tax increase since
little has been built in our
CRAs besides a water park,
one functioning Daytona
Beach project and a half-fin-
ished, near-empty condo
complex in Holly Hill.
Some will say we cannot
eliminate CRAs because
they are bonded. This only
means we would have to
divert all incoming CRA
funds to paying off the
bonds before elimination.
The fact is most CRAs have
no bonds and could be

shut down immediately

Heart association encourages walking, healthy lifestyle

Walk to be held
Oct. 3 in Daytona
By Jamye Durrance
one hour of regular exercise
adds two hours to your life
That is just one statistic
that the American Heart
Association is promoting for
their three-mile Start Heart
Walk on Friday, Oct. 3 in
Daytona Beach.
But, next Friday's walk is
just one portion of the Heart

Association latest program:
Start Walking.
"We're encouraging peo-
ple to walk 30 minutes a
day," said Nancy Gay, com-
munications director of the
Heart Association's South-
east branch.
The program encourages
physical activity to help
combat heart disease, which
is the leading cause of death
in the United States. Stroke
is the third leading cause.
(Cancer is second).
In the program, employers
are encouraged to set up
walking trails at workplaces
and reward employee

More than 900 companies
have joined the program
since it started in 2007.
"We are trying to focus on
prevention," Ms. Gay said.
"It's not like you have to go to
the gym. There are little
things you cdn do."
The Heart Association
cites reduced stress, lower
blood pressure and
increased energy as other
positives from walking 30
minutes a day.
Additionally, according to
the Heart Association, com-
panies can save $12 billion
in medical expenses and
$225 billion in productivity
losses if their employees are

open to everybody, not just
those participating in the
Start Walking program.
The Heart Walk will be on

Lawsuit over death
of teacher settled

The city of Daytona
Beach settled a lawsuit in
the death of a longtime
Volusia County educator.
David Hinson was an area
superintendent five years
ago when he was killed by
an 18-year-old fleeing
police. The teen slammed
into Mr. Hinson's vehicle.
Mr. Hinson's widow
claimed police in Holly
Hill and Daytona Beach
were illegally chasing the
teen. Holly Hill has already
settled its lawsuit without
admitting any wrongdo-
ing. Daytona Beach city
leaders authorized a
$100,000 settlement, but
like Holly Hill, did not
admit any fault.

Chief irate
over crimes against
elderly residents

Daytona Beach Police
Chief Mike Chitwood said
"I can't see straight," refer-
ring to his anger after a
rash of crimes against the
elderly and other innocent
residents. Mildred
Belanger, 74, was walking
in her front door on
Senaca Street near Orange
Avenue when a suspect
jumped out of the bushes
and forced his way in,
demanding money. When
she showed him her empty
purse, he knocked her to
the floor, \breaking her
pelvis, then stole jewelry
and took off.
An hour later and a few
blocks away, Margaret

Rance, 76, was putting
cash in her trunk outside a
Wachovia Bank on White
Street when a suspect
grabbed the money and
ran. She was not hurt.
The next day, police said
the same suspect robbed
an elderly couple at the
same bank as they put
cash into their car.
Police think Hernandez
Jefferson, 42, just a week'
out of prison, may be
responsible for those
crimes. Officers nailed him
as he walked down a street
near the bank after the
most recent robbery as he
tried to flag down a ride.
Police public information
officer Jimmie Flynt was
passing by and called in
reinforcements. Jefferson
is facing a host of charges.

Witnesses help police
arrest suspects

The same day, police fol-
lowed a vehicle they say
was involved in an attack
on a man in front of the
South Turn Bar on Nova
Road. The victim was sit-
ting on a bench when two
suspects pulled up,
jumped out, beat and
robbed the victim as he
was counting his money.
Police closed in on the sus-
pect vehicle near North
Street and Nova Road. The
driver slammed into a fire
hydrant, but was quickly
arrested. A passenger with
him was found hiding in a,
garage. Chief Chitwood
was there as the suspects
were arrested and said
area residents helped
police track the suspects.

Two men arrested
for murder
Daytona Beach police
said a drug deal gone bad
led to a murder early last
Sunday morning. Police
said Terry Mclaine, 28, was

found in the driveway of a
home on Bethune Street
after being shot twice. He
died at the hospital. Inves-
tigators said Mr. Mclaine
was selling drugs to two
people inside a gold col-
ored van. The suspects
produced a large amount
of money, according to
authorities, but then.
pulled it and the drugs
away. Police think the two
fought with Mr. Mclaine
inside the van, then shot
the victim twice before
taking off. Police arrested
James Burnette, 34, of
Palm Coast, when he
returned to the scene sev-
eral hours after the shoot-
ing. Mr. Burnette's brother,
Shawn Burnette, 36, was
also arrested in connec-
tion with the incident.
County will not renew
beach concession con-
The men and women
who sell hotdogs on the
beach in Volusia County
have one more year to do
business there, but after
that, all bets are off. Beach
concessions are independ-
ently operated, and up
until now, owners had
been granted 10-year con-
tracts. However, County
Council members voted to
extend the contract by just
a year, then put conces-
sions out to bid, which
current owners say could
ruin them. The county will
spend the next few months
considering how and
where future conces-
sions should operate and
establishing a code of con-
duct. They will also decide
if beach concessions
should be uniform.

WESH 2 has confirmed

An Ormond Beach
woman was killed when

vehicle along Pine Land

veering back and forth as
she headed south. Investi-
gators said Ms. Oxier lost

Escapee earns
more time

An escaped ; prison
inmate was back behind
bars ir no time after he
knocked on the wrong
apartment door in South
Daytona. Authorities at the
Tomoka Correctional Insti-
tute in Daytona Beach said
Danny Gant walked away
from a work release pro-
gram along U.S. 92 at Fire.
Tower Road. Despite a
huge manhunt, the inmate
got all the way to South
Daytona, where he appar-
entlyplanned to hole up
with his girlfriend. Police
think Mr. Cant forgot

which unit she was in at
the Riverbreeze Apart-
ments on Palmetto
Avenue, and when he
knocked on the wrong
door, the woman who
answered recognized Mr.
Gant after seeing his want-
ed picture on television.
Police arrived and cor-
nered Mr. Gant in the
parking lot. He was being
held on nonviolent offens-
es and was actually due to
be released soon, but
escape charges will likely
earn him more time.
Park named after
fallen officer
Ponce Inlet has dedicat-
ed the new children's park
on South Peninsula Drive
to a fallen officer who died
in the line of duty 21 years
ago. Officer Timothy Pol-
lard was killed by a man
fleeing police after he stole
a car in Daytona Beach.
The suspect raced through
several cities, eventually
slamming into Officer Pol-
lard's police car as the offi-
cer was working to stop the
dangerous driver. City lead-
ers, including fellow offi-
cers, said it's fitting to name
the town park after some-
one who gave his life trying
to protect its citizens.
Local Olympian honored
Olympic gold medalist
Ryan Lochte of Port Orange
has returned home from
Beijing and is in great
demand around town.
Ryan, who perfected his tal-
ent at the Port Orange
YMCA, spent several days
there, encouraging the
next generation of swim-
mers and signing auto-
graphs. He told WESH 2
that he was, representing
his country but also Volu-
sia County when he set
records in China and is
proud to be a part of the
community. His father.
Steve. who coached Ryan
for years and continues to

share his swimming
secrets with local young
people, said the Y pool
served Ryan well as he
became a world-class ath-
lete. Daytona Beach also
honored Ryan at a ceremo-
ny in the city's bandshell.
Mayor Glenn Ritchey gave
him a key to the city to add
to his medal count.
Record year
for turtle nests
September marks the
end of the turtle nesting
season along the Volusia
County shoreline, and
advocates say it's been a
record year, despite sever-
al tropical storms. They
counted more than 644
nests this year, the highest
number since they started
counting 18 years ago.
Despite wind-driven
waves blown up by passing
storms, including Fay and
Hanna, the area lost just 30
nests. A few hundred
hatchlings from those
nests couldn't get past the
big surf and have been
dropped at sea by boat,
but otherwise, scientists
believe the population will
thrive. Some.think precau-
tions taken 10 years ago,
including a lighting ordi-
nance on the beach and
driving rule changes, may
be paying off today.
But at the same time
nesting season, ends.
washback season begins.
Hatchlings make their way
to the seaweed line in deep
water where they mature,
but fall brings winds from
the northeast that can
wash back those turtles.
Last year, more than 6,000
turtles were wash backed
in October, and advocates
can only hope this season
is a quieter time.

The little-known mystery of Captain Miller's gold, part one

Ever hear a story that
fantastic as it
seemed, you wanted
to believe it?
About a year ago, I was a
guest at a cocktail party
where I overheard a local
gentleman reminiscing
about his childhood in
Ormond Beach. Always
interested in stories of this
sort, I joined the group of
like-minded individuals
who had gathered around
him and listened enrap-
tured to a tale of buried
gold of unexpected
fortune, of greed.
The story ended too
quickly because, as so often
is the case in tales of this
nature, it had happened to
someone else. Details were
sketchy. All the gentleman
knew for certain was that

the adventure took place in
the 1950s where Bosarvey
Circle is today.
We turned away, those
others and I, a bit disap-
pointed, a bit skeptical, yet
tingling with hope. Maybe
it was true! Maybe, just
maybe, something this
wonderfully mysterious
had happened in our sleepy
little town.
Fast forward to last week
when, after leading a
student tour on behalf of the
Ormond Beach Historical
Trust, a chaperone men-
tioned that she had grown
up on Bosarvey Circle.
"Ever hear the story about
buried gold?" I blurted
before I could stop myself.
"Sure," she replied with a
smile. "My mom has a
written copy of it."

Dear readers, what
follows is a treasure. Not
only monetarily, but
historically. I am indebted
to Mrs. Shirley DuPree for
entrusting me with what
you are about to read and
to Mr. John McSwain of
Holly Hill for allowing me
to reprint it. Pour your-
selves another cup of
coffee, and join me as we
seek "Captain Miller's

"Captain Miller's Gold"
by Mary Jane McSwain. "A
true story for little boys."
Do you know what is the
most exciting thing that
could happen to two little
boys at the age of 8 and 10?
To find a real, actual,
genuine buried treasure!
(1959) This is the story that


I, their mother, must write
for the memory book of
our sons who found the
treasure and for their
children, in order that they
may know and believe in
such an unlikely story.
It first happened on a
beautiful Florida afternoon
in the springtime while the
boys were playing in their
favorite area-an old
abandoned estate long
grown up into a boys'
jungle paradise.
The telltale remains of
the formal garden made

discoveries exciting. Such
things as flowering shrubs,
an old gazebo, stone
benches, large flowerpots
and an elaborate arched
gateway were discovered as
the young explorers
pushed their way through
dense bamboo and under-
During the winter
months, there were
oranges and grapefruits to
be eaten from gnarled old
trees. On warm days,
snakes came out to sun.
Many black and green
snakes were seen, and
these were fun to play with.
However, occasionally a
rattlesnake appeared, so
this required the boys to
be constantly on the alert.

More soon!

and its local affiliates.
"We think anything that
homeowners do to protect
their properties is going to
mean a savings on their
insurance- and prevent
other problems down the
road," said Jim Cameron,
vice president of govern-
ment relations for the Day-
tona Beach/Halifax Area
Chamber of Commerce.
The Volusia Council of
Governments, however, is
against the amendment. ,
"This is something that
could have been satisfied
by state statute and not by
a constitutional amend-
ment," said VCOG execu-
tive director Mary Swiders-
The tax savings to most
homeowners will be mini-
mal, Mr. Gilreath said,

although those with costly
installations, such as roll-
down shutters worth
$15,000 to $30,000, could
see some "added value."

Amendment 4: For con-
servation land

Amendment 4 requires
the state legislature to pro-
vide property tax exemp-
tions for permanent con-
servation lands. Other
conservation lands would
be taxed based on their
current use, rather than
potential use.
Locally, family-owned
tree farms, ranches and
green spaces are marked
for conservation lands.
These properties may be
taxed based on their
potential use as housing or
business developments.
While much of this area's
conservation land is'not
taxed because it is owned

by the county, the county
has at least six conserva-
tion easements on private-
ly-owned land, said Ran-
dall Sleister, Volusia
County land management
The properties that
might benefit from the
amendment are located in
central unincorporated
Volusia County, Mr. Sleister
Amendment 4 is sup-
ported by the Florida
Wildlife Federation, The
Nature Conservancy, Flori-
da Audubon and the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission for
"the protection of our
water resources and
wildlife habitats" and the
Florida panther, black bear
and the Everglades,
according to a joint press
But Mr. Gilreath said the
terms of the amendment

are not well-defined.
"I simply do not under-
stand this amendment," he
said. "Does (it) mean I can
buy property for $3 mil-
lion, do a perpetual con-
servation easement and
never pay taxes? I don't
know the answer."

Amendment 6: For
working waterfronts

Amendment 6 changes
how working waterfronts,
including land used by
public marinas and boat
manufacturers, are
assessed for taxes. If
passed, instead of paying
taxes based on potential or
best use, these businesses
will pay taxes based on
current use.
The Chamber of Com-
merce supports the
"We see (these business-
es) as vitally important

employers in the commu-
nity. Not all businesses
should be assessed as
high-rise condos," Mr.
Cameron said. "We feel this
is a very crucial small busi-
ness issue."
The Volusia Council of
Governments supports the
amendment, saying it may
also protect "small hotels
that are presently being
driven out of business by
surrounding big develop-
The amendment is also
supported by some resi-
dents of Ponce Inlet, a
town known for its working
"People need places to
get their boats fixed and
get gas. If it's all condos,
where do you go? I'm all for
Ponce Inlet keeping its
small town 'fishing village
character," said 20-year
resident Jo Ellen Basile.
"That's why we love it."

Ponce Inlet officials said
the amendment would
have minimal impact on
the town's tax revenues.
The town has a tax deferral
program for working
waterfronts, but no busi-
nesses have applied.
Mr. Gilreath said the
amendment will mostly
impact South Florida,
which has more rapid
development and working
If in doubt about any of
the amendments, Mr.
Gilreath said he suggests
voters play it safe and fol-
low what he calls "Morgan's
Rule No. 1."
"If I don't understand the
amendment fully and how
it's going to help, I vote
against it," he said. "You
cannot get rid of constitu-
tional amendments once
they've passed, but you can
bring them back another

early in the budgeting
process she had requested
the city keep its current
rate of $5.17 by cutting $2
million from the budget.
This year's budget also
did not include a full-time
general purpose grant
writer, a suggestion Ms.

McKay-Vaughan first
made last year.
Commissioner Pam
Woods, who had asked for
the same, voted for the
$5.42 rate as a compro-
mise, she said.
"This is not going all the
way (back) to last year's
millage rate, but part of
the way, which is what we
asked for," she said.
Commissioner Dwayne

Taylor also voted for the
decrease, but stressed
that he would not like to
see any cuts to public
Mr. Chisholm said some
of the money initially cut
from-the public safety
equipment purchases
budget may be reinstated
as other cuts are made
elsewhere in the budget
throughout the year.

Volusia's student
enrollment loss
greater than expected
The School Districf ofVolu-
sia County's student enroll-
ment continued its decline
this school year at a rate
greater than projected.
Based on a count from the
13th day of school, a total of

1,650 fewer students
enrolled in the district's
schools that's in addition
to the loss of 1,200 students
last school year.
As enrollment numbers
fluctuated over the summer,
the school district was con-
servative in staffing teachers
for the new school year. More
than 200 teachers were non-
reappointed at the end of last

school year; however,
approximately 90 certified
teachers were offered tem-
porary positions until stu-
dent enrollment numbers
could be confirmed. With
student numbers continuing
to decline, 75 of the teachers
in temporary positions will
not be retained.
Virtually every school in
the district will be affected as

teacher staffing adjustments
are made over the next two
weeks. Principals were noti-
fied regarding whether their
teaching staff would increase
or decrease. Teachers were
notified of their employment
status on Sept. 19. All
changes will be completed
by Monday, Sept. 29.

"I love taking these dogs
out," Ms. Wade-Carotenuto

to touch anybody to these
silly, goofy dogs."
Now Ms. Wade-Carotenu-

and some of her dogs -
with others.
Last year she started her
~wn nonprofit organization,
Rescued Hearts, ,to pull
together volunteers willing
to do whatever it takes to
help pets and the people
who love them. This past
spring, the group took it a

eventually took a job with

Having seen how other
shelters and services work,
Ms. Wade-Carotenuto said
she wanted to combine the
best of each to form another
alternative for the county's
many homeless pets.
More than 15,000 animals
were euthanized in Volusia
County last year, according
to county records.
"I want to do this right, so
it's not just a pound that
warehouses stray animals,"
she said. "I'd like it to be a
super-center of pet needs."
She won't, however, call
the shelter "no-kill," she
said. While she hopes to
have a high placement per-
centage and work to cure
sick or injured animals,
that's hot always possible.
"No-kill," she said, is real-
ly more about marketing
than reality.
"In some cases, the kind-
est thing to do is to put an
animal to sleep," she said.

For Hometown News
Beaux Arts ofVolusia will
present the members'
show "Beaux Arts XLVII"
- in October.
An opening reception
will be held from 1 to 4
p.m., Sunday, Oct. 5, at the
Art League of Daytona
Beach, 433 S. Palmetto Ave.
The exhibit will be open
from 1 to 4 p.m., Tuesday
through Sunday, Oct. 5-31.
The annual members'


show is hosted by the Art
League of Daytona Beach
and accepts themes of the
artists' own choosing. This
show will be juried and
judged by Roberta Favis.
Beaux Arts of Volusia is
an invitational, juried
group of artists who work
in cutting-edge photogra-
phy, abstract and repre-
sentational sculpture and
painting. While encourag-
ing experimentation, the
group also emphasizes the
classic fine arts approach:

excellence in composition,
color, line and quality of
The main objective of
the Beaux Arts is ,to
encourage self-exploration
encompassing all media
and to promote a freer and
more modern approach to
the creation of artwork. All
work must reflect the origi-
nal, creative aim dictated
by the artist's deliberate,
human choice of his/her
usage of these values.
The Beaux Arts was

formed in 1962 by the late
Lillian "Lu" Belmont of
New York City and Paris
with her students. The
group was the first con-
temporary art organiza-
tion in Daytona Beach at
the time. It was meant to
be a contemporary group,
but has grown to include a
variety of genre, both rep-
resentational and abstract.

East Volusia County has history rich in fun, nature

By Marian Tomblin
For Hometown News
As we travel down our busy streets in eastVolusia County, it's
hard to believe that this part of the world was once wilderness.
While black bear sightings are now front-page news, less than
200 years ago our woods were full of them. And wild boar. And
In 1831, acclaimed artist John James Audubon visited J.J.
Bulow's magnificent plantation just north of Ormond Beach.
In a letter, he noted that as he "proceeded along a narrow,
shallow bay, the fish were truly abundant. Would you believe it
ifI was to say that the fish nearly obstructed our headway?"
The waterway Mr. Audubon canoed was the Halifax River,
named in honor of George Montague Dunk, the Second Earl
of Halifax.
A contemporary of King George III, Lord Halifax is remem-
bered for three things: the founding of Halifax, the capital of
Nova Scotia; the fostering of trade with the Colonies; and the
DunkWarrant. Written in 1763 in reaction to a newspaper arti-
cle critical of the King, the Dunk Warrant's allowance of
"unreasonable search and seizure" was rejected and eventual-
ly codified into our Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.
(Want to appear as if you've lived here forever? Just drop this
little nugget at your next dinner party: The waterway we call
the Halifax River is not a river; it is an estuary: An arm of the
Atlantic Ocean. Rivers don't have tides.)
In 1768, physician and entrepreneur Andrew Turnbull start-
ed a colony in present-day New Smyrna. His settlers were pri-
marily Greek Minorcans seeking a better way of life on our
shores. The endeavor was doomed from the start: Trnbull
was under-equipped and under-funded. Evidence of his effort
still exists at "Turnbull Palace," a coquina structure located in
the heart of the community.

From 1835-1842, Florida was the site of the Second Semi-
nole War. This series of battles was so bloody that for 20 years
after, our state was essentially uninhabited. It wasn't until the
end of the CivilWar that people, many of them embattled and
impoverished farmers from the South, decided to begin
afresh. Theyloaded their meager possessions into oxcarts and
pushed their way down our overgrown, dirt trails
with the crack of a whip hence the
term, "Cracker." plot0

moved here because ..
of his health. His goal?
To live to be 100 years old so he
could enjoy his enormous fortune. His home, the Casements,
has been preserved and is open to the public.
Rockefeller's friend, Henry Flagler, also had a goal: to push
his Florida East Coast Railway through to Key West. His
Ormond Hotel, once the largest all-wood building in the Unit-
ed States was a magnet for such glitterati as Ned Maclean, the
owner of the Washington Post, whose wife owned the Hope

Diamond. The Ormond Beach Historical Trust has lots of
information about its community's golden era.
And if you think Florida real estate is a bit shaky now, think
back to the late 1920s when we experienced
our land "bust." The ensuing Great Depres-
sion, coupled with Prohibition, lured many
a local lad into the activity of "rum run-
ning." The Halifax Historical Museum has
a wonderful exhibit about Bill McCoy,

Friends loved shopping on Beach St.

__ .. - .

Photo courtesy of Halifax Historical Society
Pat McCue (left) and friend Gussie Dean Warren on
Beach Street in the 1960's

Editor's Note: The photo of two
women strolling down Beach Street
in the 1960's that accompanies this
story has been running in the Home-
town News for the last few weeks
along with a request for readers to
send in photos and stories for the
section. The two women were
unidentified until recently when
reader Joyce Warren recognized the
two as her husband's mother Gussie
Dean Warren and her good friend
Pat McCue. Here, Ms. Warren and her
husband Clay share some memories
inspired by the photo.
T he two ladies in the picture are
Gussie Dean Warren (on the
right) and Pat McCue. We
think the picture was probably taken
in the early '60's. They were more than
likely shopping that day and probably
at Butlers shoes and Lerners, stores
they both loved. Beach Street was the
shopping area, there weren't many
stores anywhere else.
Momma Dean (as we all called
her) always tried to make sure her
kids were dressed nicely and had the
things they needed. With six chil-
dren, she had little time for volun-
teer work. Her children were always

first. At one time her and her hus-
band owned the Little Tomoka Bar.
Her husband had his own band
called Sandy Warren and the Chap-
Gussie was born Dec. 26,1925 in
Georgia. She only went through the
third grade. She had four boys and
two girls. She was a wonderful per-
son. She was killed in an accident in
Pat and Gussie were good friends.
We all called Pat "aunt Pat" because
we were all so close. We don't have a
lot of information on her. She lost
her husband last year and has had
both legs removed due to diabetes.
She had two girls.
My husband's family and mine
and the McCues were all one big
family. We were born and raised in
Daytona Beach. We can remember
when we were kids going down to
Beach Street and looking in the
shops and going across the street by
the river where they used to have
ponds with goldfish in them.
We used to frequent the old movie
theater every Saturday. We would go
to all the soda machines we could
find and get RC cola bottle caps,
because we could get into the movies

Our mothers and us kids always
loved to go to the Kreskes store soda

on Palmetto Street so we were always

Only in America:

the ambitious dream

By Kelly Dunaja
Advertising Consultant

Only in America. Only in America can six
Philippine immigrants turn a vision into reality.
Only in America can these same determined
immigrants set for themselves a seemingly
impossible goal and turn that goal into a-
benevolent reality. This is exactly what the
owners of Golden Abbey Assisted Living Facility
What began as "an ambitious dream"
according to Co-Owner and General Manager
Manuel "Manny" Saldon is about to manifest into
its third successful location.
The six owners, consisting of four physical
therapists, one occupational therapist and
Saldon, former Assistant Medical Examiner for
Volusia County, were a natural fit to extend their
existing, established full time careers into that of
professional caregivers. As a group, Saldon
explains he and his partners felt "so grateful to be
here in America, we all wanted to give back to,
this Country."
Saldon laughs and describes the group's
original conversations to open an assisted-living
facility as "an ambitious dream.. .something we
just talked about...looked at real estate property
driving around in a fun sort of'wouldn't that be
great' sort of way." He also laughs
wholeheartedly as he further recalls the
seemingly never ending red tape that
accompanied the reality of actually opening the
business. "We were immigrants," he shares with
more laughter, completely indicative of his
infectious good-hearted nature that begs any
listener to laugh with him. "We didn't know the
first thing about licensing, policies, regulations,
permits," he explains.
However, with the dream, also came the
determination to do everything one way the
right way according to Saldon. In total
agreement on this philosophy with his five
partners, all of whom are family members or
lifelong friends, started very small intentionally.

They opened the original Golden Abbey in
Daytona Beach with just six beds in 1995. They
were determined to learn every detail about the
business from the inside out. "We all had to
continue working our already more than full-time
jobs in order to make things work financially,"
explains Saldon. The team of elder providers kept
their resident-to-caregiver ratio purposefully
small in order to lessen the learning curve'while
simultaneously providing exceptional care to
their residents.
Their philosophy proved to be a successful
one. Golden Abbey quickly established a
reputation for excellence within the community
as well as with the State of Florida. Golden Abbey
has been consistently awarded a No-Deficiency
Rating from the State, and has been positively
recognized by state agencies such as the Agency
for Health Care Administration.
.Despite Golden Abbey's successes, "the
financial hardships through the processes
seemed to never end," explains Saldon. As a
result, each of the six partners maintained their
fulltime positions in the healthcare industry.
However, despite "our other employment,
apprehensions and fears, we were absolutely
determined to 'continue moving forward,"
says Saldon.
In 2000, Golden Abbey opened their second
location in Port Orange at 1321 Herbert Street.
Saldon describes the area as "nothing but
woods...no plazas...no Ritter's...not much but
our beautiful newly constructed state-of-the-art
home." This second Port Orange location,
situated on three acres, features sixteen beds -
nearly triple the size of their first location.
While the growth and expansion was
something to be celebrated, it was not without
additional challenges. The team quickly realized
one of them would need to leave his or her full-
time career and permanently commit to
managing Golden Abbey. The owners believed an
outsider would not have the same visions.
With more of his contagious laughter, albeit a
bit more nervous than before, Saldon explains, "I

took the leap and committed myself as the full-
time General Manager of Golden Abbey." As the
Assistant Medical Examiner for Volusia County
for seven years, Saldon describes this as "an
extremely difficult choice. The chance had to be
taken. The sacrifice had to be made. If not, we
couldn't continue to move forward and the
dream, the ambitious dream, couldn't be
In retrospect, Saldon undoubtedly knows the
choice was the right one. "As management, I can
hand-select the very best caregivers in order to
accomplish the vision we have had since day
one," says Saldon. He describes Golden Abbey's
staff as the "hardest working, best group
anywhere. I listen to every word they say. They
are one-hundred percent hands on. I literally
trust them with our residents lives and total well-
being. Our residents have hearts and souls and
they deserve the very, very best. Each and every
one of us gives them just that."
Years of hard work, determination and
dedication have solidified the dreams and
aspirations the founders of Golden Abbey shared
thirteen years ago. As a result, their visions have
become reality. They-are thrilled with the
thoughts of yet another expansion.
In an effort to serve an even larger portion of
the community, a third Golden Abbey location
will celebrate its Grand Opening in October at
1410 Hand Avenue in Ormond Beach. Golden
Abbey...in Daytona Beach...in Port Orange...in
Ormond Beach, and only in America.

'Bathing occasions' in 1875 Daytona were solemn festivities

The following tale is from a letter writ-
ten by Menefee Huston, son of L.D. and
Maria O. Huston.
The Hustons lived at the Palmetto
House, which was located at the southwest
corner of Loomis Avenue and South Beach
Street and served as Daytona's first hotel.
The hotel was owned by L.D. Huston's sis-
ter, Mary Huston Hoag of Cincinnati.
. The letter is written to Menefee Huston's
cousin, Ettalene Mears of Cincinnati,
daughter of L.D. Huston's sister, Deborah,
and husband, Daniel Mears, of Cincin-
The beach was the Halifax River, which
had tides and the water was clean and
clear and the water washed onto a sandy
beach in front of the Palmetto House.
Monday, Aug. 23, 1875
"...Ah, you just had ought to
have been here to the bathing
"Upon the approach of these solemn
festivities, the lights were put out or
turned down. Pa (L.D. Huston, retired
Methodist minister arid the first mayor of
Daytona Beach), in virtue of his not being
able to see, was permitted to remain on
the porch in outer darkness; the rest of
the male persuasion were incontinently
ordered off the lot, and the house
tabooed 'til after the affair was over.
"Down from the upper regions, three
black robed spirits would then descend
off the porch, round by the kitchen and
through the side gate by the woodpile.
The procession would wind its way -

their ample garments hanging from the
head and sweeping the ground and if
any human happened to be going down
the beach, it would halt in the shadow of
the oak in front of the store and wait in
breathless silence 'til the way was
"Arrived at the river's
brink, they plunged
boldly in and waded
out 'til the water was
up to, well, was
about 18 inches.
and there they
stuck. Nothing
could induce -
them, to go to
the wharf.
"After a prop-
er period spent
in this exciting
amusement, the
again formed,
and .with the -
same breathless
silence and cau-
tion, they regained
their apartments for
the purpose of re-
arranging their attire, the
lights were turned up. the
exiled were permitted to
return and men breathed freely
once more.
Hail Columbia! What a time it was!
One awful night shall I ever forget it?
- as this dismal cortege glided past the

fence, there burst a wild strain of min-
strels from a dark corner near by. T'was
some heartless villain trying to sing
"There were three crows" to the tune of
the "Rogue's March." The wretch was
instantly arrested and silenced by
the police, though the thing
Save us all quite a turn."

T.he following is a let-
ter from L.D. Huston to
his son-in-law, John
Ellis Davidson, of
Baltimore, Md., to
tell him of the trip
up the St. John's
River from Jack-
., sonville and how
the ship has
.;' stopped at Palat-
--i, 1ka for the night.
The letter is
.;.. dated, Thursday,
March 19, 1874.
"Dear Ellis: After
a good night's rest
and a good break-
fast. Mary (his sister,
Nlary Hoag) and I sailed
forth this morning for a
wv walk.
Taking the first street west of
us (Palatka is on the west side of the
St. John's), we struck off south and
presently came to a magnificent live oak
grove, interspersed with magnolias, one
of which is 100 feet high and all hung with

superb moss. The morning breeze was
glorious, and when Mary saw the trees
and the swaying moss and the laughing
water beyond, 'Well,' she said. 'That is
the grandest thing I ever saw!'
"Just as we entered the grove, we met
two little girls on their way to school, to
whom we spoke and they offered us their
sweet little morning bouquets and direct-
ed us to their mother's cottage in an
orange grove nearby. We soon got at the
oranges, for they were then picking to fill
a little order from Jacksonville for a thou-
sand, at four cents a piece. Will is right,
one doesn't know what an orange is 'til he
eats it fresh from the trees and here and
in March. For they get sweeter and fuller
of syrup the longer they hang. After one
or two, your fingers stick together with
syrup. I have eaten more oranges this
morning than in the last 20 years put
together, and I can't get enough! ,
The natives here all think most highly of
the interior, and universally concede to
Indian and Halifax Rivers the best healthy
and the best oranges. But I am much
afraid we shall find it too lonesome for
the women. Daytona is spoken highly of.
It is settled by Ohioans, chiefly from Day-
ton, and is high and rolling. It cost but $5
an acre to have hammock cleared and
hammock is the law. Any grape will grow
here, they say.

Anything less than perfection unacceptable for Ormond Beach attorney

By Kelly Dunaja
Advertising Consultant

He epitomizes all that an excellent
trial lawyer should be. He combines
tenacious ambition, dedication to
excellence, and an inability to accept
anything short of perfection into his daily
practices. He's an attorney with an
undefeated jury trial record who owns one
of the areas most technologically
advanced business law firms. Meet
Gregory D. Snell, Esquire, firm founder of
Snell Legal.
The forty-nine year old Ormond
Beach resident exudes confidence. The
attorney, whose self-described
expectations of his firm are "beyond high,"
is "not satisfied with anything less than
perfection...giving anything less would be
too easy,"says Snell.
Snell continues to operate today with
the same business philosophies he's
practiced since "day one." He attributes
this belief to two great mentors he worked
with very early on in his career. "One of
the attorneys taught me to be a master of
both preparation and technology. The
other attorney taught me to be both
charismatic and persuasive in the court
room," says Snell. Snell, without even so
much as a remote hint of hesitation,
describes himself as "relentless and
competitive, since before I can
remember.'" He combined the mentor-
provided aspects and "continued to learn,
continue to try cases and continued to
build my reputation," says Snell.
Today, that reputation includes
bragging rights to a flawless, undefeated
jury trial record. Snell Legal has been
recognized by such prestigious
associations as LawDragon & Martindale-
Hubbell, Super Lawyer and the Million
Dollar Advocate. Snell credits the firms'

achievements to "being very competitive."
His competitive nature further enabled
him the notoriety of obtaining the highest
verdict it Volusia County history -
$18, 787,500.00.
One might be inclined to think these
achievements would cause a law firm to
forget why it's so successful. However,
Snell takes great pride in being "the kind
of people you want to work with. We don't
just say we'll do it, we really do it."
He describes Snell Legal as "cutting
edge" as he begins a Power Point
presentation on a flat screen television in
one of the firm's conference rooms. In
keeping with all of Snell's ideas, the
conference room is anything but typical.
It's located in the former home of the
Ormond Beach Fire House: designated a
historic landmark by the Ormond Beach
City Commission in 1987. The building
was originally built in 1936 as part of
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's
"New Deal." Snell, and the building's co-
owner, Fred Hudson, purchased the
property after it ceased to function as the
Ormond Beach Fire House in November,
2006. The building is a perfect example of
Snell's life philosophy of "not being
satisfied with anything less than the very
best. I could have bought or built
anywhere, but that would be too easy. It's
a privilege to be a part of this piece of
history," says Snell with great pride and
He speaks of the building in a way a
loving parent might speak of a child. This
is "a wonderful treasure for the entire
community," says Snell. All of the original
walls of the building remain, including the
former jail, and a window uncovered
during the extensive renovation project.
Also, many of the original fixtures and
relics were used in the renovation. For
example, in the atypical conference room,

which previously functioned as a large bay
for a fire engine, the horizontal light
fixture overhead previously functioned as
the fire pole.
Although the building is rich with
history, its documentation and historical
records aren't as plentiful as Snell would
like. He welcomes the public to help with
documenting this endeavor. Despite his
research, Snell says, "records and photos
are scarce," and he invites the community

to share any info they may have.
His accomplishments are many, his
jury trial record remains flawless and his
building seeks registration for national
designation. However, not surprisingly,
Snell says "I'm no where close to finished.
I'm a trial lawyer...it's a breed, not just a
profession. I won't quit ever. I will fight
each battle on behalf of each client until
the very end. This is where I'll always be."

Childhood summers in

Daytona Beach remembered

An excerpt from Daytona Beach
native Patricia T Bennett's memoir "I
remember when..."
Summer in Daytona was close to
the Garden of Eden.
"It meant freedom from school, stay-
ing up late, sleeping late, wearing
shorts, going barefoot. Florida is a place
for being outdoors most of the year, but
in summer we literally lived outside:
boating, fishing, swimming, camping,
turtle egging (Don't tell the environ-
Our house has an attic and base-
ment, a big yard with shade trees and
trees with eatables hanging on them:
peaches (surprising in Florida) man-
gos, figs, oranges, papayas. Mulberry
trees grew everywhere. They shed
squishy, messy berries all over the
ground and sidewalks delicious to
eat or throw at my boy cousin. Along
the coquina wall dividing our yard from
the street was a hedge of Surinam cher-
ries. They're an acquired taste, but I
loved them. But eating too many was
like taking a laxative.
Another summer bonus was our
screened porch hammock. Many an
hour was spent reading there. I met a
lot of my favorite book friends lying in
that hammock with no homework. If it
was too hot, I could get it moving by
pulling a cord attached to the wall. This
had an instant cooling effect.
Many evenings after dinner my
father would take me on a walk across
the bridge (Orange Avenue, Memorial,
or whatever). We'd see what the fisher-
men were catching, exchange pleas-
antries, and end up on the City Island
to watch lawn bowling. The air was soft,
the traffic sparse, and we'd look up at
the Milky Way and Big Dipper on the
way home.
If there was a flaw in the summer
Garden of Eden, it was mosquitoes. Any
time we went outside, they attacked.
Our garage was quite a way from the
house down a narrow walkway. I can
remember walking with my father who
would break off a small branch with a
clump of leaves for brushing them off
our arms and faces. They literally
descended in clouds. We didn't
encounter mosquitoes on the bridge at
night because of the river breeze, nor
on the beach. My mother had suffered
an attack of malaria earlier in life,. so a
bottle of quinine was always in the
middle of the dining room table, taken

routinely as a precaution.
There was no air conditioning in
houses, stores, or schools. But I can
truthfully say that during the whole
time of growing up, I never remember
being uncomfortably hot. Perhaps I've
just forgotten, but I think it was
because houses were built with higher
ceilings and long windows to catch pre-
vailing winds. Traffic was much less,
and no tall buildings along the ocean-
front deflected the breezes sweeping
over the peninsula. At our house and in
stores, tall fans rotated the air, and win-
dows were kept open. To this day, I'm
not fond of air conditioning the cold
startle of air that blasts you when you
step into it from the heart outdoors.
' Another reason I loved the season is
that when I was quite young, on the
first official day of summer, I discarded
my shoes and went barefoot. This was
my father's idea what he had done as
a child growing up here. Of course,
there were problems connected with
this custom: hot pavement, sandspurs,
cuts and bruises, and worst of all,
ground itch. I don't know that official
name, but it was a kind of rash on the
bottoms of feet that itched, burned,
and was hard to cure. Dad's constant
threat was that if my fee got too bad, he
would apply a hot iron that would burn
it off. He claimed that this had been
done to him in his youth. I never knew
if he made it up or no. Aside from going
barefoot, I wore few clothes, swam a lot
and spent time at the beach or on the
river where a breeze was continually
But mosquitoes and ground itch
were a small price to pay for the idyllic
existence summer provided./ Going
back to school meant captivity, loss of
freedom, shoes, dresses, and bedtime
routine. I dreaded the end of summer,
even if it meant the mosquitoes
thinned out.
I remember when the ocean was the
only place to swim, St. Mary's Episcopal
Church's front door was on Ridgewood
Avenue, Beach Street was the main
business area of town, sailing was a
major sport in Daytona Beach, pets
could roam freely, children could roam
freely, anyone who had access to an
automobile could drive, the Daughters
of the American Revolution house on
Mobile Avenue was one of the interest-
ing -places in our neighborhood, and
the beach was the focal point of our

The first production in the Daytona Playhouse was "Sabrina Fair," directed by Pop Blyden in 1955.

Amateur theater still going strong

In December 1946, Mr. and Mrs. Henry
Saltzman, Mr. and Mrs. Rodney Reed, Mr.
and Mrs. Milo Smith and Mr. and Mrs.
Charles Landphair met to organize an amateur
theatre group, The Daytona Beach Little The-
In March 1947, its first play "Nothing, But the
Truth," a comedy by James Montgomery, was
presented at the old Seabreeze High School. The
theatre received a state charter on June 21, 1948.
By then, several plays had been produced at the
high school location and at the Seabreeze Recre-
ation Hall.
The group set up headquarters at a former World
War II WAACS barracks which is now a part of
Daytona State College and performed there for
three years until the site burned on March 15,
1951, just after the close of a successful run of
"See How They Run."
New scenery, a four-year collection of scripts and
costumes were lost. So the group started from
scratch again at the Princess Theater, downstairs
at the historic Princess Issena Hotel, now the site
ofWachovia Bank on Seabreeze Boulevard.
They performed there for five years. Local theatre
buffs may remember "Pop" Blyden, who volun-
teered during the Welch time period, then
became a paid director for "Smilin' Through."
Following a fundraising drive, the present lot on
the Halifax River was purchased in June 1954.
Membership was solicited for donations and the
purchase of common and preferred stock was
offered to the public. To obtain a bank loan,
$30,000 had to be raised.
On April 21, 1955, ground was broken, ,and on
April 23, the laying of the foundation began.
The Little Theatre Building Corporation President

Julius Davidson presented the completed build-
ing to the Daytona Beach Little Theatre in a for-
mal ceremony before 400 people on Oct. 12, 1955.
The first production in the Daytona Playhouse
was "Sabrina Fair," directed by Pop Blyden. Pop is
credited with overseeing the design and construc-
tion of .the facility, which resulted in a modern
plant with a fly loft capable of flying drops and set
pieces, an auditorium seating 299 and a prosceni-
um stage with an orchestra pit. Six shows were
scheduled each season, augmented by summer
The Playhouse has never missed a season and has
never become a "professional" company. It is still
for and of the community, a family mainly made
up of volunteers. It is not unusual to see parents,
children and even grandparents and other family
members working together on stage and behind
the scenes.
Over the years, changes have been made to the
building itself to improve the look and conven-
iences and meet safety codes. The theater now
seats 264 due to wheelchair access rows in the
A local comedy/improv troupe and a ballet group
use the facility each year between regularly
scheduled plays and musicals.
The current board members (all volunteers)
range in age from "early 20-something" through
seniors. The Playhouse established the led &
Ernie Dyer Community Theatre Scholarship for
area high school students.
Without the efforts of volunteers, who logged
more than 13,000 hours of work at the playhouse
this past season alone, the theater would never
have achieved so much.

Long, flat beach perfect for speed

By Dan Smith The
For Hometown News first
peans who came to present-day
Volusia County found a land
abundant with freshwater
springs, various wildlife, tower-
ing hardwoods and a peaceful
indigenous people.
It also possessed a most
unusual beach. The wide, hard-
packed ribbon of sand that
slopes so gently into the Atlantic
Ocean would immediately
become this area's most signifi-
cant natural feature, serving as a
north-south thoroughfare where
settlers could move goods and
foods by horse or ox cart.
In addition to the beach there
was several navigable waterways
that enabled movement west
away from the harsh salt air,
enabling farms and plantations
to prosper.
By the turn of the 20th century,
the world was on the brink of the
Industrial Age, and it was being
driven by the motorcar.
In the late 1800s, inventors
around the world had begun to
experiment in the lucrative field
of gasoline-propelled wagons,
each believing that his machine
would be the one to mobilize the
Those early auto pioneers all
had one thing in common: There
was not a suitable known place
in the world to test an automo-
bile. Years of abuse by horse and
wagon had rutted every rural
road and made them impassible
by the auto.
In wet weather, cars would
become easily stuck, and in dry,
the internal combustion engine
would quickly choke from the
clouds of dust.
Beginning in 1903, the beach at
Ormond-Daytona would become
the world's first test track and
proving grounds for the new
For nine consecutive years,
Henry Flagler's Hotel Ormond
would sponsor a winter speed
carnival that would play a major
role in the evolution of the auto-
mobile. The inventors would
flock to the remote beach to
show what their creations could

The first to come would be
Alexander Winton, who was the
top auto manufacturer of his day.
His Winton Bullet would race
and beat Ransom E. Olds Pirate
on Ormond Beach on March 29,
1903. That event gained little
attention locally, but when pho-
tos of the two spindly racers run-
ning side-by-side reached the
worldwide press, the future and
fate of Volusia County was
The next year, millionaire
sportsman William K. Vanderbilt
Jr. brought his Mercedes to the
beach and established the first
world record at 92.3 mph. The
charismatic Vanderbilt was fol-
lowed by a loyal cadre of north-
ern society, and soon, the Hotel
Ormond was the only place to be
seen during the "season."
Soon, other fine inns would
spring up to handle the crowds
like the Bretton on the Beach at
Ormond and the Clarendon at
Daytona. All of the early speed
records would be dominated by
European cars until 1906 when
the Stanley twins brought their.
ultra-sleek steam rocket to the
beach and went an incredible
127:6 mph.
In a time when technology was
improving by the minute, it
would be four years before Bar-
ney Oldfield topped the Stanley
record in the Blitzen Benz. Not
only was it the longest held
record, but it was also the first
world speed record established
by an American car.
In the years that followed, the
mark was constantly raised. In
1919, Ralph De Palma burned the
sand at 149.8 in a Packard.
Tommy Milton followed the next
year and took it to 156 in a Due-
Next up was Norwegian Immi-
grant Sig Haugdahl, who became
the first human to travel at the
rate of three miles per minute in
By the late '20s, the world land
speed record had become a very
expensive endeavor. The cost of
putting together a car to make an
attempt was now in the hun-
dreds of thousands. That left it to

a battle between two wealthy
British gentlemen. Major H.O.D.
Segrave would find the first suc-
cess driving his Sunbeam Mys-
tery S to more than 203 mph, the
first man to break the elusive and
impossible barrier of 200 miles
per hour.
His rival was Captain Malcolm
Campbell, who was also intent
upon being the world's fastest
man. In 1928, Campbell went
207, but in 1929, Segrave easily
topped him at 231. The battle
between these two would garner
international press and fame for
the area as all eyes were on the
beach to see who would achieve
the next mark. Unfortunately, the
battle came to an end when Sir
Henry Segrave perished while
racing his speedboat on an Eng-
lish lake.
For Malcolm Campbell, it. was
only added incentive for him to
achieve the heralded mark of 300
mph, which he so desperately
sought. On March 7, 1935, he
drove his Rolls Royce-powered
Bluebird to a two-way average of
276.8 mph. That would be Sir
Malcolm's last run on the sand
and would bring to an end the
beach runs for the world record.
One of the many spectators on
hand. to watch Campbell's last
run was a young auto mechanic
who had just moved his family
down from the Washington, D.C.
area. There is little doubt, as he
stood watching the blue blur
'whistle down the beach that day,
he had no idea he would be the
one to continue this area's great
heritage of motor sports.
Until this day, NASCAR is ably
guided by his family and has
become a major sports attraction
around the country and the
world. Big Bill (France) would
add his own name to that of men
like Olds, Vanderbilt, Oldfield,
Segrave and Campbell who came
here to make ours the world's
most famous beach.

straight from a scale model

Museum at 252 S. Beach

The 59-year-old muse-

p.m., is a depository for his-
torical information about
east Volusia County.
While the wood model,
created by Lawson Diggett
for the New York World's
Fair, is one of the museum's
biggest draws, it also posed
one hulking, 500-pound
challenge during the muse-
um's recent renovation.
Before replacing the
nearly 30-year-old carpet
on the museum's floor, the

mostly-volunteer staff had
to find a way to move the
14-foot-long model without
damaging it.
Thanks to three men -
museum treasurer E.
Holmes Davis and volun-
teers Keith Schmitt and
Vince Clarida working
for five days to bolster the
model's spindly ping-pong
table style base and add
wheels, the model made its
move without incident.

animals and birds along
the beach.

The old Ormond Beach firehouse on Granada Boulevard (left) has been refurbished
.and now serves as the' iaw offices of Snell -Legal. The Ormond Beach Firehouse was
designated a historic landmark by the Ormond Beach City Commission in 1987. Status
on the National Registry of Historic Places is pending. -

Granada Upholstery is dedicated to making every customer a satisfied customer by
taking their old sofa or chair and making it look as good 'or better than furniture directly off
the showroom floor. I replace and redesign Upholstered furniture to the customer
specifications. For example, I can take an. old three cushion loose back sofa and make it into a
loveseat with firm or tufted back. "Doi*t Replace It, Renew It,' is my motto. Custom design is
my specialty, including head boards and cornices. I have hundreds of fabrics to choose from,
that will meet any decorating need from velvets to brocades, silks and satins, and even genuine
leather. Furniture made 'years ago used screws and dowels which hold up for years. Today most
furniture is assembled with long staples and does not withstand years of use. I love what I do
and have been in business for over 20 years. To me, my work is like creating a piece of art.
Granada Upholstery is here for the distinguishing customer who wants quality, expert
workmanship~ and superb service. LL

The Seabreeze United Church of Christ
was the first church on the Halifax area
peninsula. It was established Sept. 25,
1904, as First Congregational Church of
In 1883, Ai landowning minister began
holding worship services for wintering
tourists in his home, eventually expand-
ing to the local dance hall-and then the
Opera House. Led by nine determined
people, a formal church was organized,
and within 10 months, a majority vote for
a new building was passed.f
The o original church wais a New Eng-
land-style white clapboard building at the
corner of Peninsula Drive and Glenview
Avenue, which offered services during the
winter only.
By 1913, attendance had grown to full
capacity, accommodating all denomina-
tions, and in 1928, the church was offi-
ccially named Tourist Church.,
The next year, a mission- style sanctuary
was built at the current site. A north
extension, parish hall and cloisters con-
necting the two were added a decade
later. It was during World War: II that
Tourist Church began staying open all

year round.
The Christian 'Education Building was
erected in 1950, forming a large central
courtyard. On March 15, 1964, Tourist
Church affiliated with the United Church
of Christ, and the name was'changed to
Seabreeze United Church of Christ.
The three buildings that' comprise
Seabreez'e United Church are constructed
of solidified- marl .rock called bog rock,
which was minedon a ridge west of the
city and is no longer available. The marl
continues to harden as it is exposed and is
thousands of years old. It contains a few
ancient shells.
The Seabreeze United Church of Christ
was placed on the National Register'of
Historic Places on Oct. 6, 1995. Under the
leadership of the Rev. Donald E. Epps, the
church still welcomes tourists, visitors
and new members. It is.a family-oriented
church whose vision is spiritual d'evelop-
ment through worship, education and
community outreach.

80 years ago
JK Molpus joined the Halifax staff.
79 years ago JK Molpus was born.
The amazing story of JK Molpus.

Meet JK Molpus. Born in Halifax Health Medical Center 79 years ago. His father,
JK Molpus, Sr. was a dentist on the Halifax staff going back even a year further to
the day we opened the doors of the hospital. But the story doesn't stop there.
Over the years, JK Molpus, Jr. had three kids, all of them born at Halifax. The nurse
that brought JK, Jr. out to see his father, JK, Sr., was the same Halifax nurse that,
35 years later, brought JK, Jr.'s son Lane out to see him. All three Molpus boys
including Lane went on to become doctors. One of Lane's bothers, Dr. Kelly
Molpus, is now on the Halifax Health staff. And did we mention that JK, Jr., himself,
after heart surgery in 2002 at Halifax Health (where else?) went on to become a
staff volunteer with a thousand hours of service? But that's another story.
