PORT ORANGE -
Although residents have
known for some time that
the Seabird Island owners
intend to sell the island for


development, they may
soon get a glimpse of what's
proposed.
Park owners Ginger Hod-
kowski and Linda Davis
filed an application for
change in land use and
rezoning to a Planned
Commercial District, with
developer and park man-
ager Gus Spreng facilitating
the process.
A conceptual plan
recently submitted to the


city proposes a 260-room
resort hotel that includes a
10,000- square-foot restau-
rant, a conference center,
spa, 48 boat docks on the
water and dry-storage for
an additional 38 boats.
The 14-story, 145-foot
structure, which includes
two levels of parking,
would be the tallest build-
ing in the city.

School bus cutbacks lead to overcrowding, delays


Some routes resumed, officials
still monitoring situation


By Jeanne Willard
Willard@hometownnewsol.com
VOLUSIA COUNTY -
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 ini-


tially cut more than 55
school buses, eliminating
routes and bus stops to
more than 26,000 students
who utilize district trans-
portation.
The cuts were designed
to save fuel, wear and tear
on buses and reduce per-
sonnel costs, district offi-
cials said.


Although the measures
may have saved money,
having fewer buses led to
some logistical problems,
district officials acknowl-
edged.
Irate parents com-
plained about late buses,
students left -behind and
over-crowding that left
some buses with standing
room only.
On the front line of those
complaints were bus driv-
ers such as Edna Mitchell,


whose route covers an area
from Ormond Beach to
Port Orange.
"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 con-
trol over the bus stops or,
routes, she said.
However, the five-year
.veteran driver ,agreed that
it hasn't been smooth sail-
ing for parents, students or


drivers this year.
"The buses are more
over-crowded," she said.
"Way over-crowded."
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 elemen-
tary children to stand on a
bus," she said.

The event, hosted by Bethune-Cook-

it was advertised only a day in advance, it

crowd, New Smyrna Beach commissioner

Park dedicated to police


ofcer 20 years after death


By Jeanne Willard
Willard@hometownnewsol.com
PONCE INLET_ More than
20 years have passed, but
Linda Pollard still remembers
the gut-wrenching day her
son was killed as though it
was yesterday.
"I'll never, never forget it,"
said the former Port Orange
resident who now lives in
Mississippi with her husband
Tommy.
Now, with the recent dedi-
cation of a park in his name,
Timothy Pollard's memory
will live on in the town he
served as a young man.
On September 22, 1987
Ponce Inlet Police Officer Pol-
lard, 24, had been on the job
for only six months.
"That morning I didn't get
up and fix him breakfast, like
I usually did," Mrs. Pollard,
64, recalled in a recent phone
interview.
Later that morning she
stepped out on the patio of
her home and felt a strange
sensation overtake her.


, "All of the
sudden I had
a chill on
me," she
said. "I knew
it was bad."
A few min-
utes later the -s
song "Let's go Timothy Pollard
out in a blaze
of Glory" came into her head
- a message from her son,
she's convinced.
Shortly afterwards she
received the call that all rela-
tives of police officers dread
- her son had been gravely
injured in the line of duty.
Officer Pollard's cruiser was
struck by 19-year-old Dwight
J. Sams, who had led police
on a high-speed, three-city
chase after stealing a car in
Daytona Beach.
The rookie officer's car was
hit as he headed north on
Atlantic Ave. attempting to
assist officers from other
municipalities in the pursuit.
The Pollard's rushed to the
hospital where their son died
a few hours later.


On Monday, the town of
Ponce Inlet dedicated a chil-
dren's park in the 4600 block
of S. Peninsula Drive in mem-
ory of the slain officer.
"I think it's wonderful,"
Mrs. Pollard said. "It's so
touching."
She and her husband have
never fully recovered from his
death, she said. Even now,
her voice grows unsteady and
she's unable to keep tears at
bay while talking about her
son.
"(We) felt like the whole
world caved in," she said.
The Pollard's were not to be
spared further grief when
their 22-year-old Down's syn-
drome daughter died six
months after their son, Mrs.
Pollard said.
"It wasn't easy," she said.
"We still haven't handled it."
The couple was unable to
travel to the ceremony due to
poor health, but town offi-
cials plan to send them a
video of the dedication.
Although their son wanted
to be a police officer since he
was a little boy, the Pollard's
initially tried to steer him in
other career directions, Mrs.
Pollard said.
They were concerned

Officer Timothy Pollard who was killed in the line of duty in1987.


about his safety, she said.
After'pursing an interest in
photography, her son finally
returned to his dream of
becoming a police officer, she
said.
He was artistic, sensitive
and generous, she said, often
giving his money away to
people in need.
Traveling from Mississippi
to attend the ceremony was
Jack Walls, the slain officer's
uncle, his wife, Jane and their
daughter, Kim.
Also present was Mr. Pol-
lard's Spruce Creek High
School friend, Don Wines,
and town officials including


Police Chief Steven R.
Thomas, Fire Chief Dan
Scales, Mayor Nancy Epps,
council members and mem-
bers of the town's Parks,
Recreation and Tree Board.
Mr. Walls expressed the
family's appreciation and
thanked the town for pre-
serving the memory of their
loved one.
Police officers from Ponce
Inlet and two Daytona Beach
Shores officers, who were
present the day Mr. Pollard
was killed, stood at attention
during the ceremony.
Officials unveiled a stone
monument and the park will


be known as The Timothy T.
Pollard Memorial Park.
Dwight J. Sams, 30, the
driver of the stolen vehicle
that killed Officer Pollard,
was convicted of first degree
murder, and sentenced to
life in prison.
He is currently incarcerat-
ed at Sumter Correctional
Institute in Bushnell, F.
Mr. Sams will be eligible for
parole review in 2011, some-
thing Ms. Pollard plans to
fight.
"He's never shown any
remorse," she said. "We are
doing everything we can to
keep him behind bars.

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, employ-
ers are encouraged to set up
walking trails at workplaces
and reward employee
progress.
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 can 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
healthier.
For Darryl Tol, chairman
of this year's walk, heart
problems are a personal
issue.
One of Mr. Tol's twin
daughters, Emma, was born
with a heart defect.


At two months old, Emma
underwent heart surgery to
correct the defect.
Now, Emma is an active
six-year-old, with little sign
of heart problems..
Mr. Tol credits the
research of the American
Heart Association.
"In the past, (problems
like this) would have rou-
tinely killed a child," he
said. "But research from the
Heart Association saved her
life."
Working at Florida Hospi-
tal in DeLand, Mr. Tol has
seen many lives saved
because of strides made-in
heart research.
"The differences in med-
ication make it so you don')
need surgery anymore," he
said.
Mr. Tol said he and his
family have participated in
the Heart Walk for the past
five years.
"Itis such a positive expe-
rience," he said. "It shows
gratitude for the research
(done by the Heart Associa-
tion)."
Mr. Tol said- his hospital
participates in the Start
Walking program and it has
made a difference.
"It's a good morale boost
for employees," he said. "It's
a great team building effort."
Ms. Gay said the walk is
open to everybody, not just
those participating .in the
Start Walking program.
The Heart Walk will be on
Friday, October 3 at 5:00
p.m. at the Daytona Beach
Band Shell. The walk will be
on the beach, with music
and food provided.

Teen becomes Eagle Scout despite challenges


By Jeanne Willard
Willard@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ORANGE A local
day-care center is splashed
with colorful paintings of
trains, flowers and butter-
flies, brightening up the
room and bringing smiles to
the children.
The paintings, at the Port
Orange YMCA. were done by
Boy Scout Ryan Bassett, as
part of his Eagle Scout proj-
ect .
Achieving the highest
award in scouting is an
accomplishment in itself
considering less than four
percent of scouts achieve
this rank, said his Scoutmas-
ter and father Michael Bas-
sett.
But, what makes the Port
Orange resident's accom-
plishment even more
remarkable is that he suffers
from a rare heart syndrome
called Saethre-Chotzen.
To date, Ryan, 18, has
undergone a half-dozen
heart, spine and skull sur-
geries and lived with a tra-
cheotomy for three years.
At one point doctors told
his family to take him home
and "let nature take its
course," said Ryan's mother,
Leslie Bassett.
Standing just over 4-feet
tall and weighing in less
than 100 lbs. his constant
companion is a portable
oxygen tank connected to
him by a nasal cannula.
Of all the things he's
endured the tank is his
nemesis, he said.
He looks forward to get-
ting off the continuous oxy-
gen.
It feels like a tether, he
said. "It's a pest. It gets
stuck to things."
Following a pioneering
pulmonary valve implanta-
tion by Dr. Evan Zahn at
Miami Children's Hospital
in July, doctors expect to be
able to wean him off the
oxygen in a month or so,
Mrs. Bassett said.
The recent procedure

mural project at the YMCA in Port Orange.


involved using the jugular
vein of a cow attached to a
stent. Once the stent is
inserted through 'a small
incision in the groin, physi-
cians use a balloon to
inflate the valve, she said.
Despite physical limita-
tions that have prohibited
strenuous sports and kept
him out of school for long
periods of time, Ryan has
enjoyed scouting for the
past five years with Troop
456 in Port Orange.
"I can't really run that
good," he said. "I get short
of breath."
But, he's able to camp,
and earned more than 35
badges before completing
his Eagle Scout project.
Ryan said he encourages
other kids to get involved in
scouting.
"It's a great way to grow
up," he said. "You make a
lot of friends."
His project, including
planning and fundraising,
took months of work, Ryan
said.
"It affected my grades a

little bit," he said.
The paintings add cheer
to the room and are
enjoyed by the 175 children
who attend the center, said
Ike Lochte, director.
"The (children) loved it,"
Ms. Lochte said.
Although he completed
his project last year, Ryan
was unable to attend a for-
mal Eagle Court of Honor
until last month, due to
health reasons.
Ryan acknowledged that
his small stature and oxy-
gen tank make him the tar-
get of curiosity and teasing
by some children.
"Sometimes they stare at
me," he said. "Sometimes
they give me grief, but
(many) are really nice to
me." :
Currently enrolled in


Volusia County School Dis-
trict's home-bound pro-
gram, he hopes to return to
the Spruce Creek High
School campus soon to fin-
ish out his senior year.
Although he has no defi-
nite college plans yet, he
wants to work with animals
or in a medical-related
field.
Despite the time spent in
hospitals and frequent doc-
tor appointments, Ryan has
an upbeat attitude about
life.
"I get to meet great doc-
tors," he said.
Ryan's mother choked up
when she spoke about her
son.
"I just don't know how,
to put it into words," Mrs.
Bassett said. "He did an
awesome, awesome job."

Orange Family Days Trust.
Grand Marshall John
Doctor will lead Saturday
morning's parade featuring
local hero and Olympic
champion Ryan Lochte.

only "Oasis" offering beer
and wine for sale on the
patio of the Lakeside Com-
munity Center on Saturday


night from 6 p.m. until 10

Oasis patrons can enjoy a
glass of wine or beer and
purchase food from Aunt
Catfish' restaurant while lis-
tening to the Tallahassee-
based band Livingston Road
play next door in the Ken-
neth Parker Amphitheater.
As always, residents will
be tempted by the aroma of
sizzling sausages, funnel
cakes and their favorite fair
foods prepared by vendors
such as Bubba Gump
Shrimp Company, Island
Concessions, Rossi's Diner
and area non-profit organi-
zations.
Organizers will be kicking
it up a notch this year with
more free entertainment
including bands such as
Livingston Road, Category

Band, Spirit Wind and
Spruce Creek High School's
12 O'clock Jazz Band.
"We've brought in bands

tery by strangulation. No

From page Al
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,
citing voter approval of
property tax breaks that
have impacted the county
budget.
"Volusia County is
broke," she said. "If they
don't have the money to
pay extra drivers 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
said.

conviction. Bail was set at
$1,000.
eTammy Ann Freimiller,
20, of 5428 Christiancy
Ave., Port Orange, was
arrested Sept. 15 on
charges of felony battery.
No bail was set.
*Derik Vincent Cain, 32,
of 435 Nash Lane, Port
Orange, was arrested Sept.
15 on charges of domestic
violence/ felony battery
and resisting arrest with
violence. No bail was set.
*Kelii Mark Waiwaiole,

*Paul Robert Giancola,
27, of 6510 Pathelen Drive,
Port Orange, was arrested
Sept. 17 on charges of pos-
session of crack cocaine
and tampering with evi-
dence. No bail was set.


"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 offi-
cials, she said she was told
that assigned routes could
not be changed.
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

'Volusia County is broke. If they don't have
the money to pay extra drivers then they
can't do it."

Edna Mitchell
School bus driver


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
said.
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
said.
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
said.
: 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."

Accolades to the Port Orange
Police Department


I believe the women of Port Orange would benefit greatly
from the self-defense course offered by our local police
department.
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-
dence that will stay with me.
While this seminar was only two hours, these officers
packed so much information and hands-on training into it
that it leaves one empowered with self-preservation capa-
bilities that can possibly save one's life should an attack take
place.
Those arriving early had the pleasure of speaking with
Sgt. Jim Jabluszewski (who is responsible for the annual Cit-
izen's Police Academy), and he brought us up to date on the
progress of the new police station, stating the police depart-
ment is thankful to the taxpayers for the new facility.
Speaking as one of those taxpayers, I deeply believe that it
is a small price to pay for the protection our men in blue
provide to our community!
Officer Miller is responsible for the S.A.EE. local program
and has worked hard behind the scenes to bring this addi-
tion to our community. More data on upcoming seminars
can be obtained from Officer Miller.
I believe we have approximately 84 officers, of which, I am
sure, Chief Monahan is very proud. I know I am!

Airport idiocy

It is incomprehensible that bur 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 scientist or even a 3 year old to recognize and under-
stand this premise.
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
pilots.
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-
way.
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 neighbor-
hood 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 desirabil-
ity 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" neigh-
borhoods or move the airport to another area. At whose
expense?

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 law-
suit 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 citi-
zens, 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 visioning ses-
sion so that Edgewater can figure out what it wants to be
when it grows up. And, the city 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
Restoration.
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 ses-
sion will be left for the people who live here to deal with.
They are relying on the stupidity and gullibility of local
residents to swallow what they come up with in these ses-
sions 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


dverdsing This, according to City Manager Barlow, can now be recti-
fied if we buy in to the sham being fed us through the
"Visioning Workshops" conducted by GS Florida Develop-
ers. And thus miraculously the vision of the "Edgewater 20-
year dream" will be realized in the hands of these benevo-
anager lent protectors of the environment, a.k.a. GS Florida.
Editor Make no mistake about it, they are interested in making
fast, easy money at little risk to themselves. The only people
who stand to gain from this proposal are the developerss,
BY real estate companies, lawyers, property speculators and
finance companies. How generous of them to "donate" a
few thousand dollars to fund meaningless sessions (orches-
treated by our elected officials), to convince us all to jump at
0 their offer so they can make many millions of dollars off our
public lands.


And what a nice name they've chosen to package and sell
their project. Webster defines "restoration" as "to. bring
back into existence or to an original condition."
Let's question their motives for even using this word in
the bogus title of their proposed project. But of course they
could never sell it under the truer title of "destruction."
They have apparently already received the blessing of our
city council. Why else would they allow this charade to con-
tinue?
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 build-
ing 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
environment 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 others in this' great state, with resultant loss of
wildlife and its habitat, pollution of the environment,
crime, political corruption and more.
The real losers are the citizens of Edgewater for genera-
tions to come. There will be no "restoration" by anydevel-
oper, that much is for sure. Once destroyed by these devel-
opers, nature can never be restored. We must stand up for
our rights and demand our voices be heard.
Hear this.city council, "Less is more;" just say no and
learn to live within our means like most small American
communities must do. Your job is to serve the people, not
the developers. Don't be lured into the potential increase in
tax revenue brought by a monstrous track house communi-
ty. The negative impact on our small town will be far too
detrimental.

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 equip-
ment combined with the compassion to sketch what he is
going to do.
And his voice is warm and kind when .he gives me
instructions. So I am very grateful to have such a fine den-
tist.

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-lif-
ers.
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, some-
one, 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 of life. If the ranter's conclusion is correct, then there is
no killing of human life caused by abortions until such time as
the "fertilized" egg is outside the womb, "has drawn its first
breath 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 conception or
at some point in time prior to birth. I understand the turmoil
that carrying to birth a baby of incest, rape or with other debili-
tating conditions may bring to the mother and others. To this I
can only say that such circumstances 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-
choicers, make war and are willing to kill "babies unable to
compete in our competitive society" is based on emotion, not
fact.
Further, adults with the mental capacity to know the differ-
ence between right and wrong have an obligation to live within
society's rules, and those who choose to violate those rules
must be subject to the consequences of their actions.

From page Al
vacation ownership that
would include marina use,
for some of the units, he
said.
The project will bring
additional tax revenue and
about 200 jobs to the city,
Mr. Spreng said.
Seabird Island is part of
the Causeway Park District,
one of five special districts
in Port Orange's Town Cen-
ter Community Redevelop-
ment District.
The picturesque location
and access to the waterfront
make the island a unique
and valuable piece of prop-
erty, Mr. Spreng said.


That's something the 20
full-time and 80 part-time
mobile-home residents of
Seabird Island, who have
enjoyed an affordable
waterfront lifestyle for
years, are loath to lose.
Residents, who own their
mobile homes but not the
land, face eviction if the
park is sold. They have
protested the closure for
several years ever since
owners first signaled their
desire to sell the island. ;
In an E-mail, Jerri Zinn,
Seabird Island Homeown-
er's Association president,
who has not returned to the
island for the winter season
yet, confirmed that some
members of the homeown-
er's association board


received notice of the zon-
ing application filings.
Since she has not seen the
plans, Ms. Zinn declined to
comment on her own or
other resident's reactions.

the property to Pacific Equi-
ty Trust, by the current
owner's father, the late
Robert Davis, led to a law-
suit against the owners that
is still active, she said.
"Our homeowner's asso-
ciation is trying to deal only
in facts and avoid specula-
tion and misinformation,"
Ms. Zinn said. "We are
unsure of what will happen
to our homes and our
lifestyles when or if the park
is closed."
Florida law requires that

ted to the city by owners
of Seabird Island for a
proposed 260-room resort
hotel and marina. Owners
have submitted an applica-
tion for re-zoning and land
use for the waterfront
island that is currently a
mobile-home park.

Island Owners

the owners must give resi-
dents a six-month notice of
eviction.
According to Mr. Spreng,
that probably won't happen
any time soon.
"I don't expect anyone
leaving the island before the
next year (2009) is over," he
said. "I expect to meet with
the homeowners and work
out something that takes
the uncertainty out of it."
The zoning change appli-
cation and conceptual plan
must undergo several levels
of review by city staff, city
committees and the plan-
ning commission before it
comes before the council
for public comment. That
may be October or later, Ms.
Cruz said.

Private, public schools

disagree on removal of

amendments


By Bethany Chambers
Chambers@hometownnewsol.com

VOLUSIA COUNTY -
When the State Supreme
Court pulled three amend-
ments from November's bal-
lot earlier this month, the
news rippled through area
schools to varying effect.
On one side stood the
teachers' unions and public
school representatives, who
said the amendments could
have caused more cuts in the
classroom.
On the other, stood reli-
gious educators and tax
reformers who said the
amendments, would have
helped struggling taxpayers
while giving parents the abili-
ty to choose the best schools
for their children.
While disagreeing how, all
agreed that reform is needed
in the way the state taxes its
citizens and funds its
schools.
'All Floridians should con-
tinue to press for a fair and
clear system of taxation in
this state that fairly shares the
burden of running needed
services for the public good,"
said Andy Ford, president of
the Florida Education Associ-


ation, the state's largest
teachers' union.
The court unanimously
removed Amendments 5, 7
and 9, which had been
placed on the ballot by the
state's Taxation and Budget
Reform Commission, ruling
thewording was misleading
on Amendment 5 and that
the commission did not have
the authority to place the
other two amendments on
the ballot without a referen-
dum.
Amendment 5, also known
as the "tax swap amend-
ment," would have cut prop-
erty taxes that fund schools
and replaced them with
other revenues.
Amendment 7 aimed to
remove a portion of the state
constitution that prohibited
the state from using taxpay-
ers' money "in aid of any
church, sect, or religious
denomination," including
religious schools.
Also dealing with schools,
Amendment .9 would have
required school districts to
spend at least 65 percent of
their state funding on class-
room expenses, rather than
administration. It also would
have opened the door for


public funding of private
school vouchers.
All three amendments
were supported by Volusia
Tax Reform, a citizens' group
dedicated to lowering prop-
erty taxes.
"The citizens are upset
about this. Amendment 5
was the only tax relief meas-
ure out there," said Margie
Patchett of Port Orange,
executive director of the
group. '"And it was put
squarely at the foot of the leg-
islature to ensure that no
money was lost to the
schools."
The amendments were
uniformly panned by the
Volusia County school dis-
trict.
Amendment 5 would have
cut property taxes and'
school funding by 25 per-
cent, school superintendent
Margaret Smith said.
"We already had a difficult
budget process this year and
have been told by state law-
makers there will be more
(cuts)," she said, adding that
the language in the amend-
ment was "convoluted."
Proponents of Amend-
-ment 5 had argued that prop-
erty taxes would have been
replaced by increasing sales

tax, repealing tax exemptions
and spending reductions.
As for Amendments 7 and
9, Ms. Smith said she was
concerned the state couldn't
adequately fund private edu-
cation "with public schools
not fully funded now."
Nick Wolsonovich, super-
intendent of schools for the
Roman Catholic Diocese of
Orlando, disagreed.
"Education in the U.S. and
in the state of Florida is
under-funded, but (the


amendments) never intend-
ed to take money away from
public schools," he said. "We
believe the intention was to
add new funding. We want
families to have the choice."
Although some opponents
had said Amendments 7 and
9 would destroy the separa-
tion of church and state, Mr.
Wolsonovich said private
school vouchers are "aid not
to a school, but to a child and
family" that prevent the state
from "funneling everyone


through the same process."
Representatives of the
teachers' unions, public and
private schools and tax
reform groups agreed:
Amendments 5,7 and 9 won't
be the last Floridians see of
property tax cuts or changes
in school funding.
"We're not going to get
(reform) through elected offi-
cials," Ms. Patchett said. "No,
it looks like it will be left up to
citizen initiatives across the
state."


Tax-break amendments on ballot


Chamber
supporting
breaks; property
appraiser
questions them
By Bethany Chambers
Chambers@hometownnewsol.com


VOLUSIA COUNTY -
Three amendments voters
will see.on their ballots Nov.
4 could.mean tax breaks for
S.t some local property owners
Sand a tax shift to others, the
county's property appraiser
said last week.
Morgan .Gilreath, Volusia
County property appraiser
since 1992, said Florida
State Constitution Amend-
ments 3, 4 and 6 may not
create the effects desired by
the state's Taxation and Bud-
get Reform Commission,


which placed them on the
ballot.
"No taxing authority has
ever cut its budget with a
new (tax) exemption," Mr.
Gilreath said. "With exemp-
tions, the tax is shifted ...
creating a tax increase for
anyone not exempted."
Amendment 3 calls for a
property tax break for
homeowners who fortify
their homes against hurri-
cane wind damage or make
their homes more energy
efficient.
Amendment 4 'provides a
property tax break begin-
ning in 2010 for the owners
of permanent conservation
land.
And Amendment 6 offers
a property tax break for
owners 'of land used for
commercial fishing, public
boat launches, marinas and
drystacks and marine man-
ufacturing and repair facili-
ties.

On Saturday, September 27th, 2008 10am to 2pm f


Amendment 3: For hurri-
cane-safe and energy-effi-
cient homes
Amendment 3 allows the
state legislature to prohibit
property appraisers from
adding the value of storm
shutters, wind-resistant
doors or windows, solar pan-
els or other renewable ener-
gy sources to the assessed
value of a home.
The -amendment has .he
support of the Florida Chamn-
ber of Commerce 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 presi-
dent of government relations
for the Daytona Beach/Hali-
fax Area Chamber of Com-
merce.
*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 amendment,"
saidVCOG executive director
Mary Swiderski.
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 provide
property tax exemptions for


permanent conservation
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 con-
servation lands. These prop-
erties may be taxed based on
their potential use as hous-
ing or business develop-
ments.
While much of this area's
conservation land is not
taxed because it is owned by
the county, the county has at
least six conservation ease-
ments on privately owned
property, said Randall Sleis-
ter, Volusia County, land
management supervisor.
The properties that might
benefit from the amendment
are located in central unin-
corporated Volusia County,
Mr. Sleister said.
Amendment 4 is support-
ed by the Florida Wildlife
Federation, The Nature Con-
servancy, Florida Audubon
and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission for "the protection
of our water resources and
wildlife habitats" and the
Florida panther, black bear
and the Everglades, accord-
ing to a joint press release.
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 million,
do a perpetual conservation
easement and never pay

Port Orange/Ponce Inlet
So. Daytona/Daytona Beach Shores


Brief
From page Al
Villages in Lake County, but
an appearance by Obama led
to rock star-like lines at his
local campaign office in
South Daytona, with hun-
dreds of supporters camped
out to get tickets. The venue
was a last-minute pick for the
Obama campaign, with a visit
to Bethune-Cookman
University in Daytona Beach.
Folks anxious to be part of
the event were in front of the
offices as early as 3 a.m. to get
one of about 2,500 tickets
available, and those who
scored tickets were thrilled.
Obama focused on
women's issues, including
talk of a childcare tax credit
and after-school programs.
With the upheaval in the
markets, Sen. Obama
addressed the drama in the
economy and the uncertainty
among voters in the shadow
of the Wall Street meltdown.

Gas stations accused of
price gouging
In the wake of hurricane
Ike, local gas prices skyrock-
eted, and the State Attorney
General's Office began
investigating reports of
gouging. InVolusia County,
the office tells WESH 2 they
are looking at more than 70
reports of gouging, though no
local subpoenas were served.
WESH 2 found the highest
prices in the area at $4.21 and
the lowest holding at $3.69.

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
several 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 popula-
tion will thrive. Some think
precautions taken 10 years
ago, including a lighting
ordinance on the beach and
driving rule changes, maybe
paying off today.
But at the same time
nesting season ends, wash-
back season begins. Hatch-
lings 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.

Lawsuit over death of
teacher settled
The city of Daytona Beach
settled a lawsuit in the death
of a longtimeVolusia 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
wrongdoing. Daytona Beach


'---


city leaders authorized a
$100,000 settlement, but like
Holly Hill, did not admit any
fault.

Chief irate over crimes
Daytona Beach Police Chief
Mike Chitwood said "I can't
see straight," referring 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 aWachovia
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 Hernander
Jefferson, 42, just a week out
of prison, maybe 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.

facing a host of charges.

County will not renew
beach concession
contracts
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
independently operated, and
up until now, owners had
been granted 10-year
contracts. However, County
Council members voted to
extend the contract by just a
year, then put concessions
out to bid, which current
owners say could ruin them.
The county will spend the
next few months considering


how- and where future
concessions should operate
and establishing a code of
conduct. They will also
decide if beach concessions
should be uniform.

Escapee earns
more time
An escaped prison inmate
was back behind bars in no
time after he knocked on
the wrong apartment door
in South Daytona. Authori-
ties at the Tomoka Correc-
tional Institute in Daytona
Beach said Danny Gant
walked away from a work
release program along U.S.
92 at Fire Tower Road.
Despite a huge manhunt,
the inmate got all the way
to South Daytona, where
he apparently planned to


hole up with his girlfriend.
Police think Mr. Gant
forgot which unit she was
in at the Riverbreeze
Apartments on Palmetto
Avenue, and when he
knocked on the wrong
door, the woman who
answered recognized Mr.
Gant after seeing his
wanted picture on televi-
sion. Police arrived and
cornered 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.

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 candi-
date and were testing their
beliefs and their comfort
level with (Sen. Obama).
They weren't the majority,
but elections aren't won by
majorities; they're won by
minorities."

Police pour 'a ton of
resources' into visit

Local law enforcement
agencies worked together
when tasked with accom-
modating the hordes of
supporters who waited in
long lines to get tickets on
Friday and to make it
through security check-
points at the event Satur-
day.
The last minute visit sent
police agencies scrambling
to handle the visit, officials
said.
"This was very well run
for such short notice," said
Daytona Beach Police
Chief Michael Chitwood,
who was on the scene Sat-
urday.
South Daytona police
were caught by surprise on
Friday when crowds start-
ed 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 Chitwood said.
His department hasn't
calculated 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 over-
time."
The event went off with
only one hitch: Some
attendees with counterfeit
tickets got into the event,
leaving others out on the
pavement.
Despite that, Oak Hill
resident Germayne Farrell,
36, who was turned away,
remained upbeat and
stayed outside during Sen.
Obama's speech.
"I'm just happy to be in'
the environment of this
rally," he said.
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 mem-
bers.
The national and local
attention combined to
make for a historic event
for Daytona Beach, Chief
Chitwood said.
"It's a great event," he
said. "It's a tremendous
thing for the city to have a
presidential candidate and
possible future president of
United States here."

'Change that's more
than a slogan'

Speaking on the Florida
leg of his "Women for


Change" tour accompanied
by Kansas Gov. Kathleen
Sebelius and Arizona Gov.
Janet Napolitano, Sen.
Obama focused much of
his 44-minute speech on
the role women _- namely
his mother, grandmother
and wife, Michelle have
played in his life.
His mother and grand-
mother worked long hours
to support him, he said,
and his wife, "the rock of
the Obama family," juggles
"work and parenting with
more skill and grace than
anyone I know,"'he said.
He called it an "outrage"
that women in the country
make an average of 77
cents for every $1 men
make.
He also spoke on other
issues he said were impor-
tant to women, including
providing affordable
healthcare and family leave
time, raising the minimum
wage, giving tax breaks to
the middle class and pro-
tecting a woman's right to
choose established in Roe
v. Wade.
Noting the recent finan-
cial crisis, he used the
speech as an opportunity
to take some jabs at his
opponent, Republican Sen.
McCain.
Sen. Obama lambasted
Sen. McCain for being
"fundamentally a deregula-
tor," for allying with
"Washington lobbyists and
special interests," and for
placing the blame for the
economic crises on others,
including Sen. Obama
himself.
"I think it's pretty clear
that Senator McCain is a.
little panicked, and that at
this point, he is willing to
say anything, do anything,
change any position, vio-
late any principle to try
and win this election," he
said. "And that is sad to see.
That's not the politics we
need." ,

Supporters 'come
together'

The campaign's message
of change resonated with
those in the crowd.
Port Orange resident
JosephVetter, a U.S. history
teacher at Hinson Middle
School and Daytona State
College, said he's looking
for that change.
Sitting near the front of
the auditorium, Mr. Vetter
said this election is a mat-
ter of history and one he
hopes will draw the inter-
est of his students.
"There's so much at stake
in this election; education
is at stake, health insur-
ance is at stake. The securi-
ty of our country, the war
in Iraq, and billions of dol-
lars in spending are all
concerns," he said.
From kindergarteners to
college students, young
people flocked to the
event.
Stefanie Thaxton, a 24-
year-old Embry-Riddle
Aeronautical University
student, was randomly
chosen from the line to
stand on the stage behind
Sen. Obama during his


-7siP-tj,~5 ~ 3~~~~sa;s "~~;jr~*t& ~~~~E$ihi5


speech.
A former supporter of
Hillary Clinton and recent
attendee of a leadership
council at the Center for
American Women and Poli-
tics, she said "the equal pay
for equal work message"
stuck out to her.
"One of my biggest fears
as a junior in college about
to enter the workforce," she
said, "is that I'll be under-
appreciated or stereotyped
because of my gender."
As a young African-
American student, Jada
Davis, 11, said she isn't
focusing on the candidate's
race, but rather how the
economy is affecting her. :,
"It doesn't really matter
what color (he is)," she
said.
The cost of gas and other
items is too high and her
family is feeling the pinch,
which means she is also,
Jada said.
"I can't get stuff I used to
get," she said.
But it. wasn't just the
young who came out for
Sen. Obama.
Daytona Beach resident
Loretta 0. Wright, 81, said
it was well worth it to stand
in line three hours to get a
ticket for herself and her
husband, Robert, and then
to wait another couple of
hours in line to get into the
center.
"I think (Sen. Obama) is
intelligent (and) well edu-
cated," Ms. Wright said.
"He might be young, but he
has experience."
At 91, Mr. Wright said he
never expected to see -an
African American running
for president in his life-
time.
"It's a sign of progress for
our whole society," he said.
"It is really something that
should have happened
before. Now, we can come
together, not on the basis
of race, but on the basis of
unity."
Several local politicians
also recognized the univer-
sal appeal of Sen. Obama's
message.
State House District 27
Rep. Joyce Cusack gave the
opening speech of the
event, saying that Sen.
Obama and running-mate
Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware
just "get it.".
In. his speech, Sen.
Obama also recognized his
support for Rep. Cusack,
who is vacating her seat
this year, and for U.S. Con-
gress District 24 candidate
Suzanne Kosmas, a New
Smyrna Beach Democrat.
Daytona Beach Commis-
sioner Dwayne Taylor, who
is running for Rep.
Cusack's seat, was one of
several local officials in the
audience.
He first met Sen. Obama
in 2004 during a "Get out
and Vote" event in the city.
Although Mr. Taylor noted
some politicians might
have attended the event
just to hobnob, he attend-
ed as an ardent supporter,
he said.
"The people who truly
follow him do so because
we believe in him as a
leader," he said.

Amendment 6: For work-

Amendment 6 changes
how working waterfronts,
including land used by pub-
lic marinas and boat manu-

taxes. If passed, instead of
paying taxes based on

businesses will pay taxes

she said.
Ms. Davis, 58, is throwing
her hat into the ring
because she believes this is
a crucial time in the history
of the town.
"There's a lot of work to be
done," she said.
When the town's compre-
hensive plan is finalized,
land use codes will need to
be overhauled, she said.
"That requires a lot of
meticulous work," Ms.
Davis said. "I think I am very
well-suited to that kind of
work."
Although she's never held
an elected office, Ms. Davis
regularly attends council


merce supports the amend-
ment.
"We see (these businesses)
as vitally important employ-
ers in the community. Not all
businesses should be
assessed as high-rise con-
dos," Mr. Cameron said. "We
feel this is a very crucial
small business issue."
The Volusia Council of
Governments supports the
amendment, saying it may
also protect "small hotels
that are presently being driv-
en out of business by sur-
rounding big development."
The amendment is also
supported by some resi-
dents of Ponce Inlet, a town


meetings and has served on
the town's Ordinance
Review Committee, Plan-
ning Commission, Volun-
teer Animal Control Service,
Committee for Ponce Pre-
serve, Friends of Ponce Pre-
serve and the Visioning
Committee.
She was chairperson of
what is now known as the
Parks, Recreation and Tree
Board and. has worked on
the Arbor Day Race, coastal
cleanup and the
Halifax/Indian River Task
Force.
In 1996, she was named
Ponce Inlet Citizen of the
Year.

Davis said.

you go? I'm all for Ponce

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 pro-
gram for working water-
fronts, but no businesses
have applied.
Mr. Gilreath said the

community's uniqueness,
she said.
"It's the perfect place to
live," she said. "It's not
crowded and we don't have
traffic congestion right
now."
In addition to its natural
beauty, the town employs
talented staff with the
expertise to run the com-
munity and provide desired
services, Ms. Davis said.
One of the challenges
facing the town is main-
taining the existing level of
services and staff without
raising taxes, she sad.
"Every governmental
agency is having to make
huge cuts," she said. "And
when you make huge cuts
that affects the quality of'

has more rapid develop-
ment and working water-
fronts.

If in doubt about any of
the amendments, Mr.
Gilreath said he suggests
voters play it safe and follow
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 can-
not get rid of constitutional
amendments once they've
passed, buit you can bring
them back another year."


the level of service that she
and other residents now
enjoy "without breaking the
bank," she said.
This will require what she
terms "responsible"
growth.
"We need more business-
es, we need more commer-
cial groups and we need
more services locally," Ms.
Davis said, "So that we are
working toward a sustain-
able community."
'The next five years is
going to be crucial to the
future of Ponce Inlet," she
said.
It's time, she said, to
bring a fresh perspective to
the council.
"It's good to have new life
on the council," she said.
"I think you need new
view points. I think, you
need freshness."

Incumbent
From page Al1

He and his wife, Mary
Lou, moved to Ponce Inlet
in 1997 and quickly became
volunteers in the commu-
nity.
Currently serving as Vice
president and "chef" of the
Ponce Inlet Community
Center, V.P of Citizens for
Ponce Inlet and Ponce Inlet
Lions Club treasurer, Mr.
Hinson has also served as
an election poll worker, and
as a member of the town's
code enforcement board
and planning commission.
He was recognized as
2006 Citizen of the Year for
Ponce Inlet and 2007-2008
Lion of the Year.
Raised by his grand-
mother when his parents
divorced, Mr. Hinson is
proud of the fact that
although he dropped out of
high-school to join the
Army, he retired as a Major
and earned a Bachelor's
degree in Business Man-
agement Administration.
Mr. Hinson's reason for
running for reelection is


similar to why he first
entered politics.
"I just wanted to be part
of the solution, rather that
part of the problem," he
said.
"I figured I had the time
and I love the town of
Ponce Inlet."
One of the most impor-
tant and controversial
issues recently has been
the crafting and approval of
the town's comprehensive
plan, he said.
Some residents claim the
new regulations would
increase density and traffic
and the plan spurred a citi-
zen-backed charter
amendment to limit boat
stacks that will appear on
November's ballot.
When he voted to
approve the plan, he said
he was told by some resi-
dents that his future as a
council member was "fin-
ished."
"I guess I'm not a politi-
cian," Mr. Hinson said. "I
could have voted no and I
probably wouldn't have
had opposition going into
tlyis election."

would not be fair to the
people who elected him, he
said.
"I think it would have
been compromising my
integrity and the way I real-
ly feel," he said. "I firmly
believed in what I was vot-
ing for."
The small size, location
and physical beauty of
Ponce Inlet make the town
unique, he said.
He cooks for many town
events, which he said keeps
him close to the pulse of
the community and he
prefers to patronize local
restaurants rather than
leaving the town to eat out.
"I like to leave my money
in town, why take it out?"
he said.
Mr. Hinson believes his
three years on the council
as well as his experience on
the planning commission
and code enforcement
board make him the most

Port Orange math teacher chosen


for zero-gravity flight


Program offers
60 Florida teach-
ers once-in-a-
lifetime
experience
By Gretchen Sauerman
Sauerman@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ORANGE A Silver
Sands Middle School
teacher was floating on air
after learning he would soon
be experiencing weightless-
ness in real life.
Stephen Sims, an excep-
tional education math
teacher, was one of 60 Florida
educators who will experi-
ence weightlessness. on the
Zero Gravity Corporation's G-
Force One.
"I got the e-mail (confirma-
tion) over the summer," said
Mr. Sims. "I didn't think I had
made it."
This year's flights will mark
the third year global defense
and technology giant


Northrop Grumman has
underwritten the program,
called Weightless Flights of
Discovery.
"Every kid dreams of being
an astronaut, and I'm no
exception," said Mr. Sims. "I
really have to thank Northrop
Grumman for making this
possible."
G-Force One will fly teach-
ers out of Cape Canaveral,
Chicago, Atlanta and San Jose
in 2008.
"By the end of this year we
will have flown nearly 1,000
teachers from all over the
country," said Jim Stratford,
site manager for communi-
cations and civic affairs for
Northrop Grumman's Inte-
grated Systems Sector.
Northrop Grumman cre-
ated the program in
response to President
George Bush's American
Competitiveness Initiative,
designed to help students
strengthen their science and
technology skills.

"Let's face it, Northrop
Grumman and every other
company that depends on
being able to tap a future
pool of engineers and scien-
tists has a vested interest in
ensuring that pool exists,"
Mr. Stratford said.
By giving a boost to STEM
teachers, those who teach
science, technology, engi-
neering and math, Northrop
Grumman hopes the invest-
ment will pay off when
legions of students interact
with highly motivated
instructors.
"Every engineer, every sci-
entist, every technically
trained person in our nation
can l ok back and identify a
teacher who played a signif-
icant role in his or her deci-
sion to pursue a technical,
career," said Sandra Evers-
Manly, president of the
Northrop Grumnian Foun-
dation, in a news release.

Discovery program is all
about giving teachers the
tools and experiences they
need to show their students
that math and science are
not only entertaining," she
said, "but can also be the
basis for a fascinating
career."
While on the flight, teach-
ers will conduct simple
experiments to test the
effect of weightlessness in
different situations.
In his eighth year at Silver
Sands, Mr. Sims, a South
Daytona resident, said he
plans to make the most of
his time in simulated outer
space.
"We're going to experi-
ment with a Koosh Ball and
do the famous 'teacher
toss,'" he said. "I'm definite-
ly bringing my video cam-
era."
Mr. Sims' students learn
math in small group set-
tings, with a focus on build-
ing basic skills to boost
FCAT scores, he said. Most
are, below grade level in
math.
"This is something I can
do for my kids to try to con-
tinually motivate them," he
said.
Doug Lasky, 13, a Port
Orange resident in Mr.
Sims' seventh-grade class,
agreed.
"I hope this Zero Gravity
program will be a fun learn-
ing experience for (Mr.
Sims)," he said. "I look for-
ward to seeing (him) back
on the ground and in the
classroom."
The plane will move
through 15 arcs, climbing
up at a 45-degree angle and
pushing down at a 30-
degree angle.
Near the top of the arc,

Sacred Heart receives Blue Ribbon


By Jamye Durrance
Durrance@hometownnewsol.com
NEW SMYRNA BEACH -
The demand from Kool and
the Gang to "celebrate" were
blaring through the gym at
Sacred Heart Catholic
School.
And, through their wig-
gles, shakes and shimmies,
the students were certainly
celebrating.
The school was recently
selected as a 2008 No Child
Left Behind Blue Ribbon
School by U.S. Secretary of
Education Margaret
Spellings.
"I couldn't be more proud
to be principal of this
school," Principal Lynn
Abboud said.
During the recent "Blue
Ribbon Day," the normally
uniform-clad students cele-
brated their accomplish-
ments in blue jeans, blue
shirts and, for some, blue
hair.
Throughout the day,
teachers planned classroom'
activities centered on both
the color and the achieve-
ment, but the best was
probably a homework-free


afternoon preceded by a
dance contest in the gym.
"It's our way to congratu-
late the students," Ms.
Abboud said. "They took the
tests."
To become a Blue Ribbon
school, Sacred Heart's stu-
dent test scores averaged in
the top 10 percent national-
ly.
The school also had to
submit an extensive appli-
cation including a portfolio
of the school's programs to
the Council for American
Private Education.
Sacred Heart, located on
U.S. 1 near Turnbull Bay
Road, was one of 50 private
schools in the nation to
earn the award and one of
two private elementary
schools in Florida.-
But, it wasn't an
overnight accomplish-
ment.
The school had to work
on improving their math
test scores over the past
couple of years.
"We worked really hard
for it," said Aven Bacon, a
math teacher at the school.
"It really paid off."
Through a series of pro-


grams focused on the sub-
ject, the school managed to
improve their scores signif-
icantly and represented
what No Child Left Behind
. means, Ms. Abboud said.
"No Child is about serv-
ing the learning needs of all
children," she said. "It took
a long time to get the
scores, it wasn't a fluke."
Realizing the improve-
ment in scores, Ms. Abboud
and the parish decided to
pursue the Blue Ribbon
award.
A comprehensive applica-
tion and a year later, the
school received word that
they were selected for the
honor.
"We're very excited about
it," Ms. Abboud said. "This is
thrilling."
In October, Ms. Abboud
will represent the school at a
Blue Ribbon conference in
Washington, D.C. Joining
her will be kindergarten
teacher Sharon Neitzey,
who, with more than 20
years at the school, has the
longest tenure at Sacred
Heart.
Ms. Abboud said it was
hard to choose who to take


with her to the conference
because the achievement
was such a team effort.
"We have a lot of dedicat-
ed people," she said. "I
couldn't do it without the
teachers."
While the award focuses
on the elementary school,
the school teaches Pre-K
through eighth grade.
Ms. Abboud said more
than 80 percent of the
graduates from the school
go on to enroll in Advanced
Placement, IB or Honors
classes in high school.
Additionally, the school


of 220 students recently
added a Pre-K program
based on the need from
parents wanting an early
start for their children.
"We really do have a
great group here," Ms.
Abboud said.
Ms. Abboud is in her sec-
ond year as the principal of
'Sacred Heart after having
been both a student and
teacher at the school.
"It's more than a place to
work, it is home," she said.
And, just like at home,
everyone at Sacred Heart is
family.

Heart Catholic Church
in New Smyrna Beach

Ribbon Day' in the
school's gymnasium

That's why when the Sis-
ter Sledge song, "We are
Family," starts playing dur-
ing. the dance contest,
everyone was dancing.
"One of the strengths of
the school is that we share
the success," Ms. Abboud
said. "We're' a lot of fun
together. We're a family."
For this family, their suc-
cesses are a bit awe-inspir-
ing, Ms. Bacon said.
"When you think about
how small we are, to be one
of 50 in the whole country
to receive this award, that's
amazing," she said.


Back up your data to make recovery easier


There is one computer-
related topic that
keeps generating one
question after another. It's a
topic that everybody knows
about, yet most of us are
guilty of not taking it
seriously enough. And those
of us who do take it serious-
ly are often doing it wrong.
SWhat is it that I'm writing
about this week? If you
guessed backing up your
computer, you guessed
right!
Over the years, I know I
have touched on this
subject a number of times,
but what has prompted me
to touch on it again is the
other half of the equation
that never seems to get any
attention.
You see, so much time is
spent on how important
having a backup is, how to
perform the backup or what
needs to be included in the
backup, that the equally
important subject of how to
restore the backup gets
neglected.
Then, when disaster
strikes and people have to
go restore from backup, the
recovery steps they are
following (if any) often don't
work.
A lot of the backup
software that's out there
makes assumptions about
the backup/recovery
situation that don't neces-
sarily fit your situation.
Then the steps don't make
any sense and you're left
feeling lost.


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


Here's a for instance. One
backup utility that I know of
makes the assumption that
the computer itself is intact
but the data itself became
lost or corrupt. Then, the
recovery steps make
suggestions such as "double
click the restore icon on
your desktop," which makes
no sense if you are restoring
after a hard drive crash or
completely replacing a
computer.
Another example involves
"ghosting" or "imaging"
software.
This backup concept is
that if you regularly image
(or ghost) your machine,
then recovering from hard
drive disaster is a snap. Just
re-image a new hard drive
and all of your data and
settings are restored exactly
as they were right before
disaster struck.
But what happens if the
disaster isn't with the hard
drive, but with the mother-
board? What if you are
simply trying to move all of
your data and settings to an
altogether new machine?
Usually, trying to restore
backup data from an image
disk only works if the
computer that is being re-
imaged has exactly the
same hardware as the


machine that is being
replaced. If you can get the
image to load at all (on
different hardware) you
usually end up with a ton of
driver issues and other
things that have to be
cleaned up.
I had one frustrated
computer user ask me
recently, "What good is
having the backup running
every night if it still costs
time and money to have
someone come out to
restore it?"
I'll answer that here.
Backing up your data is a
necessary chore. Without a
backup running regularly,
when you do have a disaster
(whether it's a hard drive
crash or some other cata-
strophic failure) then
switching to a new machine
is easy, if starting with no
data is OK with you.
But what if you would like
your new machine to have
all your stuff in it? Wouldn't
it be nice if your new
machine (or hard drive) had
all of your documents in
your "my documents" folder
and all those programs that
were installed on the old
machine? Wouldn't it be
nice to have all of those
back?
Well, all that stuff has to
be restored and the new
machine "tweaked" until it
matches the way you had it
as close as possible.
Programs that were in use
on the old machine have to
be reinstalled on the new.


You can't just restore it from
backup, they will have to be
reinstalled.
Favorites and e-mail all
have to be imported
manually and applications
that may not be on the new
box have to be installed.
Take accounting data as
an example. Backing up the
data is one thing, but
people are often surprised
to learn that they need to
reload the accounting
software on the new
machine if they want to be
able to restore that account-
ing data.
Chores such as rein-
stalling software and
importing the data from
backup can take a lot longer
than it takes to set up a
regular nightly backup, but
what it all comes down to is
this: it's better to be strug-
gling with restoring your
data than to be wishing you
had something left to
struggle with. So backup
your data anyway.

Beaux Arts of Volusia
will present the mem-
bers' 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 Day-
tona Beach, 433 S. Pal-
metto 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 photog-
raphy, abstract and rep-
resentational sculpture
and painting. While


encouraging experimen-
tation, the group also
emphasizes the classic
fine arts approach: excel-
lence in composition,
color, line and quality of
execution.
The main objective of
the Beaux Arts is to
encourage self-explo-
ration encompassing all
media and to promote a
freer and more modern
approach to the creation
of artwork. All work must
reflect the original, cre-
ative 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
contemporary art organ-
ization in Daytona Beach
at the time. It was meant
to be a contemporary

East Volusia County has history rich in fun, nature


A s we travel down our busy streets in
east Volusia 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 panther.
In 1768, physician and entrepreneur
Andrew Turnbull started a colony in pres-
ent-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: Turnbull 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.
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 if I was to
say that the fish nearly obstructed our head-
way?"
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 remembered for three things: the
founding of Halifax, the capital of Nova Sco-
tia; the fostering of trade with the Colonies;


and the"Dunk Warrant. Written in 1763 in
reaction to a newspaper article critical of
the King, the Dunk Warrant's allowance of
"unreasonable search and seizure" was
rejected and eventually codified into our
Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.
(Want to appear as if you've lived here for-
ever? Just drop this little nugget at your next
dinner party: The waterway we call the Hali-
fax River is not a river; it is an estuary: An
arm of the Atlantic Ocean. Rivers don't have
tides.)
From 1835-1842, Florida was the site of
the Second Seminole War. This series, of bat-
tles was so bloody that for 20 years after, our
state was essentially uninhabited. It wasn't
until the end of the Civil War that people,
many of them embattled and impoverished
farmers from the South, decided to begin
afresh. They loaded their meager posses-
sions into oxcarts and pushed their way
down our overgrown, dirt trails with the
crack of a whip hence the term, "Crack-
er."
You might have moved to Florida to begin
a new life. Perhaps you're here to spend
more time with the family or on the golf
course. Billionaire John D. Rockefeller,
reputed to be the world's richest man back
in the early 1900s, 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 pre-
served and is open to the public.
Rockefeller's friend, Henry Fla- S A 9
gler, also had a goal: to push his
Florida East Coast Railvway
through to KeyWest. His Or mond
Hotel, once the largest all wood
building in the United States
was a magnet for such glit- IM
terati as Ned Maclean. -
the owner of the Wash-
ington Post, whose
wife owned the Hope
Diamond. The
Ormond Beach Histor-- "
ical 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 Depression, coupled with
Prohibition, lured many a local lad into the
activity of "rum running." The Halifax His-
torical Museum has a wonderful exhibit
about Bill McCoy, aka the Real McCoy, King
of Rum Row.
While you're in the neighborhood, walk
across the park to Jackie Robinson Ballpark.
There, you will learn more about how Mr.
Robinson, with a crack of his baseball bat on
March 17, 1946, dealt a crippling blow to


racism.
History
w a s
for tea frst time
since the color line appeared in pro-
fessional baseball, Mr. Robinson, a black
player for the Montreal Royals, went to bat
against the Brooklyn Dodgers' farm team at
what was then City Island Ball Park in Day-
tona Beach.
Regardless of your particular destination
in eastVolusia County, the area is rich in his-
tory and activities for you to enjoy.

Atlantic Center for the Arts


enriches area's culture


Atlantic Center for the
Arts is a nonprofit, inter-
disciplinary artists' com-
munity and arts education
facility dedicated to pro-
moting artistic excellence.
Its renowned residency
program is situated within
Atlantic Center's main
campus on 69 acres of pal-
metto and pine forest in the
midst of 2,200 acres of the
Doris Leeper Spruce Creek
Preserve.-
The idea of a place where
artists could go to focus on
their art, collaborate with
artists from other disci-
plines and work with inter-
nationally renowned mas-
ters in a tranquil, natural
environment blossomed in
1977 in the mind of Doris
Leeper, painter, sculptor
and active environmental-
ist.
In 1979, The Rockefeller
Foundation provided the


$15,000 in seed money that
unofficially started Atlantic
Center for the Arts. Soon
after, Leeper raised the
$50,000 necessary to buy a
10-acre plot on the shores
of Turnbull Bay. Today, the
entire facility totals 17
buildings built on 10 of its
69 acres.
The residency program
brings together three
renowned artists from dif-
ferent disciplines to work
with talented emerging and
mid-career artists for three-
week sessions that include
master classes, individual
critiques, opportunities for
collaboration, and private
studio time. Artistic fields
represented include paint-
ing, sculpture, mixed
media, architecture, video,
filmmaking, graphic
design, poetry, science fic-
tion, playwriting, screen-
writing, art criticism, fic-


tion/nonfiction, perform-
ance art, dance, choreogra-
phy, music composition
and music performance.
As of September, 130 resi-
dencies have taken place
serving more than 3,500
artists from Florida and
around the world. Atlantic
Center continues to be the
starting point for new
works that go on to be pro-
duced at national venues.
Numerous public programs
complement each residen-
cy. Artists participate in
outreach activities and
present collaborative and
individual works-in-
progress through INside-
OUT, ,each residency's cul-
minating public event.
Atlantic Center's commu-
nity programs include arts
:education programs for
children, summer arts
camp for youth, teen .cre-
ative writing residency,

Happy memories of the

'Broadwalk' in Daytona


As a teen in the late 1940s and '50s, the
"Broadwalk" was a magical place. Later
called the Boardwalk after city officials
thought the name sounded sleazy, it once
was a place to bring back wonderful mem-
ories.
In the day time, you had to wear sandals
to escape the hot concrete. Tourists and
locals in bathing suits pushed babies in
strollers while enjoying the breeze and
beauty of the ocean.
Along the railings were benches where
old timers sat, watching the crowds go by
and reliving their youth.
On the beach below was sun tanning
bodies and permanent umbrellas known
as "peanut trees" giving a little shade.
Sandcastles were being built, and chil-
dren young and old frolicked in the waves.
Lifeguards kept watch in red wooden tow-
ers and flirted with the girls always hanging
around.
On the southern end of the "Broadwalk,"
you could walk out on the Mainstreet Pier,
watch the men fishing and see cars, beach
wagons, chairs, blankets and people for
miles both ways.
Back on the "Broadwalk," you stopped to
watch the saltwater taffy machine in the
candy ship window, and armed with a
snow cone, you stopped to play a few
games in the arcade. It was equipped with
a shooting gallery, bowling and other
games. Quarter-fed animal rides kept little
ones busy all afternoon. Any kind of food
or drink was available, and a miniature golf
course was on the roof. Music came from
all sides, and the sounds of the midway fer-
ris wheel, merry-go-round and other rides
filled the air.
Day or night, walking north you could
visit the little shops under the edge of the
street above and there were other types of
carnival-like games offered. What a thrill to
win a bear by tossing a ring over a bottle!
Between the shops and the main
strolling area near the beach was a park
area. There was beautiful green grass with
paths and a fountain with a clock tower
made of coquina rock and the letters DAY-
TONA BEACH instead of numbers.
As the end of the "Broadwalk," the crown
jewel like a sandcastle was the Bandshell.
Also, made of coquina rock, it was a mag-


nificent sight. It had a stage with a shaped
back to send the sound of the music out to
all in the area. There was rows and rows of
seating and a curved wall all around it that
you could sit on since the crowds were
always large. This was not a problem
because there was ample parking.on the
beach. There were wonderful band con-
certs and beauty contests free to everyone.
On the Fourth of July, the Miss Dixie
Beauty contest and fireworks over the
ocean took place. And the sunrise service
was held there on Easter Sunday.
To the teens of this area was a really spe-
cial place, that will be in our hearts forever.
The Youth Council Drop In was located
between the little shops under the edge of
the "Broadwalk" and the south end of the
Bandshell. It had a soda and snack bar,
pool and ping-pong tables, chairs to sit and
talk to friends and a small dance floor.
It was run by a terrific guy named Wally
Gaddis, and he let us pretty much do any-
thing we wanted. If he was busy, you went
behind the bar, got your own snacks and
put the money behind the counter.
In the summer, it didn't take the tourists
long to find that this was the place to meet
new friends. Sometimes, they returned
year after year to renew summer memo-
ries.
In the day time, if you came up from the
beach to cool off and get a drink or maybe
play touch football on the grass.
In- the evenings, you were usually
dressed, danced a little and maybe walked
down to the beach or to the midway with a
special friend.
The local teens enjoyed the Drop In all
year. After Labor Day when we were back
in school, we met there almost every
evening and sometimes did our home-
work together. This was a place to share
news of the day and maybe make a date for
the weekend.
I have many wonderful memories of the
Drop In, but will always cherish May 1,
1952, when a young former classmate
asked me out on a date. Two years later, we
were married and will celebrate our 54th
anniversary Nov. 7.

Little Theater


has big history


By Jamye Durrance
Durrance@hometownnewsol.com
The history of the Little
Theatre of New Smyrna
Beach has as many twists
and turns one of the many
murder mysteries the the-
ater has performed over
the years.
And, Dottie Hughes has
read every scene of that
history.
Ms. Hughes, a past presi-
dent of the theater, is the
unofficial historian of all
things relating to the the-
ater. She has read all the
minutes of theater meet-
ings, dating back to 1947.
That was the year a small
group of residents, headed
up by Ellie Louise Couzins
started the theater.
Ms. Couzins was the wife
of the chamber of com-
merce president at the
time and the group's stage
was the upstairs portion of
the current chamber
building on Canal Street.
After a few years, some-
one donated an old barn
near Wayne Avenue where
the group staged plays on a
dirt floor.
It wasn't much, but that
didn't matter.
"It was a small town and
small group," Ms. Hughes


said. "It was all put on by
the people."
In 1953, the mayor of
New Smyrna Beach, Han-
nah Bonnet, donated two
50-foot lots on Third
Avenue for a theater to be
built.
And, so a red building,
similar to the old barn on
Wayne Avenue, was built
and became home to the
Little Theater for almost 50
years.
In 1992, Ms. Hughes and
her husband Bill
Roehrborn got involved
with theater in just about
every capacity: set build-
ing, directing and acting.
They also became
instrumental in helping to
expand the, theater that
was quickly getting
cramped.
"The theater was getting
old," Ms. Hughes said. "We
needed more space."
So, Ms. Hughes and her
husband worked with the
board of directors and the
general membership to
plan the future of the the-
ater.
They received an ECHO
grant from Volusia County
to renovate the red barn.
Local residents chipped
in through fundraisers and
a general contractor

The Little Theatre of New Smyrna Beach presents six productions each winter season from September to May and a
summer production in July. The nonprofit organization also offers children's theater education programs and adult
classes. It is located at 726 Third Ave. on the beachside in New Smyrna Beach.


donated his services on the
project.
Renovations on the the-
ater began in the summer
of 2004 and included
expanding the dressing
rooms and lobby to create
more space. Everyone was
planning on the theater
only being out of commis-
sion for a few months.
But, in Florida especially,
Mother Nature always has
other plans.
Charley, Frances, and
Jeanne, the series of hurri-
canes that hit the area in
2004, delayed construc-
tion.
Frances in particular
caused problems: She
ripped the roof off the the-
ater.
"When you walked in,
you could see daylight,"


Ms. Hughes said. "Every-
thing was drenched in the
auditorium."
Since the auditorium
wasn't in the original
plans, there wasn't any
money available to replace
soaked seats and flooded
floors.
But, the theater got some
money for insurance and
soon construction was
underway again, with a
new auditorium added to
the plans.
On Thanksgiving Day
2005 a year and four
months after construction
started the theater was
opened.
Gone was the red barn
and in its place was an
expanded theater with a
newly furnished auditori-
um.


Despite having paid for
tickets for a season that
never was, most tick-
etholders didn't ask for a
refund. This helped the
theater, which was in debt
from the renovations.
As thanks, the theater
packed its shortened sea-
son with six plays.
A year after opening, the
theater paid off all out-
standing debts from the
renovations.
"We couldn't have done
it without the community
support," Ms. Hughes said.
"The community support
and the theater members
kept it going."
Today, the Little Theatre
puts on seven plays per
season, running from Sep-
tember to May. All the
people involved with the


plays, from actors and
directors to set builders
and wardrobe designers,
are volunteers.
Additionally, the theater
is a teaching environment,
where everyone learns the
craft and process of put-
ting together a play from
paper to stage.
"I like to say we're ama-
teurs who strive to be pro-
fessional," Ms. Hughes
said. "It's a lot of work.
Everyone is very dedicat-
ed."
That professionalism
and dedication is what has
kept the theater going for
more than 60 years.
"We're the little theater
that could," Ms. Hughes
said. "We've had obstacles
but we've figured out how
to overcome them."

Long, flat beach perfect for speed


The first Europeans who
came to present-day Volu-
sia County found a land
abundant with freshwater
springs, various wildlife,
towering hardwoods and a
peaceful indigenous peo-
ple.
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
significant 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, inven-
tors 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 mobi-
lize the population;
Those early auto pio-
neers 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 rut-
ted 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
machines.
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 achieve.
The first to come would
be Alexander Winton, who
was the top auto manufac-
turer 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 photos of the two
spindly racers running
side-by-side reached the
worldwide press, the future
and fate of Volusia County
was sealed.
The next year, millionaire
sportsman William K. Van-
derbilt Jr. brought his Mer-
cedes to the beach and
established the first world
record at 92.3 mph. The
charismatic Vanderbilt was
followed by a loyal cadre of
northern society, and soon,
the Hotel Ormond was the
only place to be seen dur-
ing 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 :Day-
tona. All of the early speed
records would be dominat-
ed by European cars until
1906 when the Stanley
twins brought their ultra-
sleek steam rocket to the


beach and went an incredi-
ble 127.6 mph.
In a time when technolo-
gy was improving by the
minute, it would be four
years before Barney Old-
field 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 fol-
lowed, the mark was con-
stantly 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 Duesenberg.
Next up was Norwegian
Immigrant Sig Haugdahl,
who became the first
human to travel at the rate
of three miles per minute in
1922.
By the late '20s, the world
land speed record had
become a very expensive
endeavor. The cost of put-
ting together a car to make
an attempt was now in the
hundreds of thousands.
That left it to a battle
between two wealthy
British gentlemen. Major.
H.O.D. Segrave would find
the first success driving his
Sunbeam Mystery S to
more than 203 mph, the
first man to break the elu-
sive 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 bat-
tle 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 English lake.
For Malcolm Campbell, it
was only added incentive
for him to achieve the her-
alded 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 Mal-
colm's last run on the sand
and would bring to an end
the beach runs for the
world record.
One of the many specta-
tors 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 watch-
ing 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.

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.

Port Orange/Ponce Inlet
So. Daytona/Daytona Beach Shores


Fay still messing with the inlet; try the surf for big reds


WATth the inshore
\/\/ waters still suffer-
V ing from Faye run-
off, the surf is a better
choice to fish. It is the time
of year for the big reds to
move in, and signs are good
that it could happen any
day.
I went down to the beach
a couple times recently and
saw lots of bait moving right
along the sand. When you
go, look for those pods of
bait and cast right behind
them. You may bait with
either mullet or shrimp, and
they would not need to be
alive. Remember to use at
least 20-pound test line and
a loose drag, for these bulls
may run up to 30 pounds.
I caught no reds nor did I
see any caught, but I did get
two tiny bonnet head sharks
- beautiful little creatures


that are born perfect minia-
tures of the adults. These lit-
tle guys were barely a foot
long and perfect aquarium
fish. A close cousin to the
hammerhead, they are slim
and graceful with an exag-
gerated tail and a mouth full
of teeth. I was happy to get a
close-up look at them.
Just a bit north of the
Volusia-Flagler county line
is Gamble Rogers State
Recreation Area. It is a small
park with most of its busi-
ness coming from a beach-
side campground east of
State Road A1A. On the west
side of the highway is a cozy
little picnic area with a boat
ramp and lots of place to
fish from the shore.
On a visit last week, I went
wading along the river-and
was able to jig up a small
trout and red. I plugged the


area around the boat ramp
and had a few strikes there,
as well.
Folks, this is probably the
most under-used state park
in our area, and it is worth a
look. The boat ramp will
give you access to a stretch
of the Intracoastal Water-
way that may be the -least
fished around.
The one drawback that I
could see was that the park
opens around 8 a.m. That is
a bit late for that daybreak
bite, but as most of us know,
the big ones usually hit mid-
day. Stop in and give it a try,


and you may be the only
fisherman there as I was on
my visit.
Lately I have been hearing
a lot about snook at High
Bridge, but the only one I
have actually seen was the
one I caught a couple weeks
ago. That one came from
about a half-mile south of
the bridge. Still, you can't
discount rumors of snook
up that way. High Bridge
has been one of the stand-
outs for linesiders as long as
I can remember.
One thing is for sure: If
you go, you had best get
there early. Down through
the years it has been clear
that most of the better trout
and snook are caught about
an hour before daybreak.
I spent a few hours on a
dock with my 5-year-old
granddaughter, Delayna


Golf club deals too good to be true


Y you've all heard the
phrase "buyer
beware." I cannot
think of a time in golf
during my lifetime when it
has been more applicable
than today.
With our economy
struggling along, many of us
have had to find ways to cut
corners and make ends
meet. Maybe you've
stopped eating out as often.
Perhaps you're picking up
the store-brand toilet paper
instead of your favorite
national brand, or you're
buying NewYork strip steak
instead of porterhouse.
For many golfers, it has
meant playing less and
trying to find bargains when
it comes to equipment. This
is where things have gotten
ugly over the past year.
Lately, not a week goes by
without me hearing from
friends in the business that
someone sent them a club
that turned out to be
counterfeit. Usually the club
broke during the course of
play and its owner wants it
repaired or replaced in
accordance with the
company's warranty.
The sad moment comes
when the golfer finds out
that his or her club is not
one that was made by that '
company, it just looks like it
and so it isn't covered at all.
Thanks to the Internet, it's
become quite easy to shop
around for the best prices
on not just golf stuff, but
everything in general. The


Internet also allows buyers
and'sellers to operate in
relative anonymity. Many
are from foreign countries
and not subject to the laws
that individuals and
companies are in this
country.
Many manufacturers get
the bulk, if not all, of their
equipment from foundries
in the Far East. While this
has lowered production
costs, it has also exposed
these companies to a lot of
dishonest people.
In these countries many
have easy access to the
molds and processes that go
into making equipment.
As a result, they often
steal these items and sell
them for next-to nothing to
companies that then make
their own version of the
same club at a fraction of
the cost. They use cheap
metals and include none of
the technology that makes
the "real" equipment
perform well. They are
basically made to look as
aesthetically close to the
real thing as possible.
Golfers searching for a
bargain are then reeled in
like a fish on a hook. They
suddenly see an ad or an
auction where they can


purchase the same set of
clubs that a local store sells
for $1,200 for just a fraction
of the cost.
Instead of common sense
kicking in and the buyer
thinking that it's too good to
be true, the buyer instead
feels that the local store
owner is padding his
pockets. Apparently, the
temptation is too great for
some.
I'm here to tell you that
the store owner's cost for
the real product is much
higher than the price the
fakes are being sold for.
What I find most amusing
is that when one of these
"discount" clubs breaks, the
same guy who refused to
purchase from the local
store, drops by to have the
club repaired or sent in to
the manufacturer. To those
of you who do this, I must
ask, why?
You could have made
your purchase through that
same store. That very same
store wanted to give you '
great service before, during
and after your purchase.
The store didn't make a
single cent off your pur-
chase through the Internet.
Now you are counting on
that store to fix your
equipment.
I'm writing this column
for a couple of reasons.
First, I want to warn
golfers out there that there
are a lot of counterfeit clubs
on the Internet. They lack
the exacting standards and


quality that you expect from
your equipment and for the
hard earned money you
spend to get it. You need to
be very wary of prices that
are too good to be true.
Not all clubs on the
Internet are fake or cheap
counterfeits. Many manu-
facturers have a link on their
Web site that tells who
distributes for them and
who can be trusted. If you
call them, they will even tell
you what to look for and ask
so that you aren't taken.
Some also have a link that
tells you the "known"
Internet sellers to be wary
of.
Second, I'm writing this to
vent my displeasure with
those of you who feel that
local stores and the manu-
facturers should spend time
and effort to help you out
now that you've been taken
by someone. You refused to
give them your business
when they would have
Helped you in every way
possible. Now you want to
give them a different kind of
business.
Instead of spending more
money for the real thing,
you spent a lot less for what
now amounts to nothing.
Where's the bargain in that?

Goodrich. Armed with a
Zebco reel and a plastic
baggie of dead shrimp, her
target was anything that
might stretch her line.
Before I could get my own
hook baited, a vicious man-
grove snapper had caused
her bobber to disappear.
"Boy, I almost had that
one Grandpa Cappy," she
yelled excitedly.
For some time after that,
the school of snapper con-
tinued to fill their bellies
from both of our, offerings
before a shout told me that
Delayna was firmly hooked
up. After a mighty struggle
she pulled the seven-inch
fish onto the boards.
"Grandpa, he thought he
could outsmart me, but not
this time," she crowed.
Back at the house, she


bragged to her mom, "I
caught the first fish and the
biggest fish, and my Grand-
pa Cappy is a professional
fisherman."
I can tell you watching her
catch that fish was as much
fun as landing any trophy
fish of my own.
Folks, take a kid fishing.
The rewards are priceless,
and starting a kid on a good,
clean hobby is invaluable to
them and to you.
