The Sweetwater Coalition is a group of citizens who are concerned the proposed extension of W illiamson Road, from where it ends at Airport R oad to its proposed intersection with Pioneer Tr ail, is going to negatively impact the wetlands and quality of water of Spruce Creek. Mr. LaMontagne presented several items to the developer, Pioneer Community Development District, about its 60 percent complete plan that concern Sweetwater Coalition members. He also claims the acreage impacted does not match the numbers the district has provided in its plan. In his presentation, he stated the city donated 12.5 acres of wetland credits to the project in October 2012. In the district's plan cross-section maps the total acres of affected wetlands shown equals 15.9 acres. The total wetlands on-site according to the U.S. Corps of Engineers permit is 18.06 acres and the district's wetlands permit request states 6.92 acres will be affected. The coalition wants clarification on the differences in the acreage affected. R epeated attempts on the part of Mr. LaMontagne and the coalition have gone unanswered by the district or were inadequately answered by Volusia County, according to Mr. LaMontagne. The coalition had three goals in bringing their concerns before the council; first, for the city to help open a dialogue with the county to adequately answer their questions; second, for the city to help find the answers to their questions concerning the cost and mitigation of the road; and third, to inform the council of details on the project they might not be aware of.

Y oung farmers bring families, learn leadershipThe 2013 Florida Farm Bu r eau State Young Farmers and Ranchers Leadership C onference July 12 to 14 could easily been mistaken for a family reunion and in many ways that's just what it was. These families were all part of the 1 percent who grow the food, raise the beef and provide the dairy for the rest of us. The annual conference at the Hilton Daytona Beach O ceanfront Resort was more than a place to glean information, it was also an opportunity to meet up with friends, show off new members of the family and compare notes of personal and farm milestones in the past year. Br ad Austin, president of the Leadership Community of Young Farmers & Ranchers, works on his in-laws' dairy ranch in Jackson C ounty with his wife M eghan, a large animal veterinarian. Mr. Austin grew up in Fort Lauderdale, not known for farming, and welcomes the opportunity to talk to the few who understand the farming life. For him, the love of farming came during his first year at the University of Florida, later than most of his peers. "M ost of my friends from high school don't understand what I do. This weekend allows us to interact with people that are going through the same things we are," V eterans of the Korean W ar from Volusia and Flagler counties will be honored by the Department of F lorida Korean War Veterans Association on Saturday, July 27. The celebration opens a new Korean War display at the New Smyrna Museum of History at 120 Sams Ave. in New Smyrna Beach. The Korean War ended where it began, along the 28th parallel," said Bob Mc G uire, senior vice president of DoFKWVA. "After three years of vicious struggle and as many as 3 million lives lost, North Korea r emained a communist nation and South Korea r emained a free nation." The date of the celebration is significant, according to Mr. McGuire. "July 27, 1953, was the agreedSee ROAD, A2By J.M.

S tarting Aug. 1, the use of any lighted or smokeless tobacco products on any campus or property owned or operated by the college will be prohibited. The prohibition extends to all DSC employees, students, and persons on college property, according to the DSC policy manual. Use of tobacco products is not prohibited in an individual's auto on the property. M ultiple surveys re vealed a majority of Daytona State students, faculty and staff supported a tobacco-free campus policy, according to the college's website. "A majority of those surveyed who said they do smoke indicated that they would like to quit, mirroring numerous state and national surveys of tobacco users," DSC reported. N ancy Homan is the fitness and aquatic center coordinator in the health and wellness department at DSC. She is the principal investigator for the grant funded through the Area H ealth & Education Center of Northeast Florida, AHEC, which provides educational materials, health screening tools, and visual aids on the hazards of smoking and dangers of second hand smoke, in addition to free smoking cessation classes. The grant proposal was a collaborative effort involving several departments and clubs including School of Health, Human and P ublic Services, School of H ealth & Wellness, Student Government Association, Environmental, Dental and Respiratory clubs and C ounseling Services. S tudents from those organizations and departments have participated in activities associated with the grant and the policy's institution, Ms. Homan said. "M ost are seeking professions whereby they are not permitted to smoke at work," Ms. Homan wrote in a letter to the college's board of directors regarding implementation of the tobacco free policy.

ect according to district's plan, pointing out the route for the new road is now taking it farther east to hug Interstate 95, which the district says will be less of an impact to the wetlands. The new design, however, increases the area of wetlands to the west of the road it plans to develop, which appears on the plan map to encompass nearly all of the w etland area. Mr. LaMontagne feels this would increase the impact rather than decrease it. He also informed the council the entire area was part of the Spruce Creek watershed with the area affected being the last significant wetland supplying Spruce Creek. Anything that goes into that area would eventually affect Sp r uce Creek, which has already been designated an impaired waterway in an environmental study. "Normally there is a BMAP created when one of these surveys is conducted that maps out the best way to improve a watershed," said Mr. LaMontagne. There has not been any BMAP done and we would like this council to ensure that one is completed before construction begins." Mr. LaMontagne also pointed out there had not been any tree survey done and the plan did not show any trees being planted in the proposed extra wide sod median. "A lot of the impact to the wetlands could be reduced if they just shrink the size of the road," Mr. LaMontagne said. "It appears they decided to make it double lanes in both directions because they over estimated the population of Port Orange in their survey." He added the proposed sidewalk and bike trail also increased the width of the r oad and therefore its impact on the wetlands. The Sweetwater Coalition presented the city with the following suggestions concerning the project: Reduce the road to two lanes, shrink or remove the extra-wide 22 foot median, leave the median in its original condition with its native trees, but if that can't be possible, then plant trees and not keep it a sod median as proposed. The coalition also suggests having the sidewalk meander around shade trees to add scenic charm and decrease the overall road width from 130 feet to the standard size of 100 feet, and to demand tree mitigation for more types of trees. The final request is for the city and county not to build the road at all and save the taxpayers the estimated $10 million the district expects it will cost to develop. The council took a few minutes to discuss the information presented and identified the current plan by the district is to finish the design plan and all required studies by this fall and begin construction and have the project completed by J une 2014. The council then asked if he had given this presentation to the County Council and Mr. LaMontagne answered he had not. "I did not because first they said they had no tree surveys and second they said, I t' s being built within county standards.'" Mr. LaMontagne told the City Council this was not an acceptable answer. "We don't want it to be just standard. We want it to be outstanding and beneficial to the waterways. Sp r uce Creek means a lot to me," he said. "I graduated from Spruce Creek High School. We want it to be aesthetically pleasing and to have the least impact on the wetlands as possible." The council suggested it would be in the coalition's best interest and would help their cause best if they gave the same presentation to V olusia County. They also suggested presenting the information to Port Orange's Envir onmental Board, feeling that would be the best department to help them with their r equests. Mr. LaMontagne said he would follow both suggestions. F riday, July 26, 2013 Hometown News A2Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

Gaines, M.D. D onald Huggard, P.A.-CSince 1997S pecializing in General Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, to include, but not limited to: Zimmerman trial reveals an ugly truthThe trial in Sanford attracted lots of national attention. Civil rights leaders from across the country converged on Seminole County, carrying signs demanding justice. The protestors told the media they only wanted George Zimmerman to be brought to trial. The problem was the facts of the case did not bear out a criminal prosecution. After the shooting of the black teenager, Trayvon Ma r tin, the Sanford Chief of P olice was fired for refusing to immediately arrest Mr. Z immerman. The Seminole C ounty Assistant State's A ttorney also did not move quickly enough for the protestors and Gov. Rick Scott was pressured into appointing a special prosecutor from Jacksonville. Angela Corey the D istrict 4 State's Attorney had an ethical responsibility not to proceed with the case unless there was sufficient evidence, but the trial went on. After three weeks and 56 witnesses in the most onesided legal proceeding I have ever witnessed, it was clear Mr. Zimmerman had acted in self-defense and he was completely exonerated. That result was not satisfactory to the African American community. Al Sharpton and the NAACP then demanded the federal government bring charges that Mr. Zimmerman violated Mr. Martin's civil r ights. That is a charge only enacted to appease people who are not happy with the r esults of a legal trial. It r eeks of double jeopardy. B ack in the late 1970s, a cousin of mine shot a man to death in Savannah, Ga. After an argument in a bar, my cousin went to his car to leave, but was followed. He took a .22 caliber pistol from the vehicle and killed the man. The shooter was charged with first-degree murder, but was acquitted on grounds of self-defense. Although witnesses said the man had threatened my cousin, he had never r eceived a single blow. That case drew almost no interest. Even the Savannah newspaper barely mentioned it. I wonder how that would have played out had the victim not been a white man. After the Zimmerman trial, there was a lot of talk about racism and the inequalities of our justice system. It is true racism still divides our nation, but protesting the outcome of a jury trial will only deepen that divide. All people must accept the findings of our legal system and live within it. There is no better way. On March 21, the most horrific crime in recent memory was committed in Br unswick, Ga. That coastal town is just a few minutes north of Jacksonville on I nterstate 95. In that case a y oung white mother was out for a walk with her 13month-old son in a stroller. On a city street in broad daylight she was accosted by two black teenagers who demanded money. When she told them she had none, they shot her. Now wounded, she begged for mercy, but the two attackers told her if she did not produce the cash they would shoot her infant son. They did. The baby was shot in the head and died instantly. In a short time, the police had the two suspects in custody and they are now awaiting trial. Y ou may not have heard about that case. No national media converged on Br unswick. Al Sharpton or J esse Jackson did not show up and President Obama did not give any statements concerning that crime. The white people of the town did not take to the streets. When that trial is over and if somehow the two thugs are set free, there will be no demonstrations or violent outrage. We live in a society governed by rules. Unless those rules apply to us all, r acism is bound to continue.

In an Embry-Riddle Ae r onautical University milestone, the first students have completed the r esearch-based Ph.D. degree programs the university launched in 2010. J aime Rubio Hervas earned a Ph.D. in engineering physics and R obert "Buck" Joslin a P h.D. in aviation. Du r ing his studies at Embry-Riddle, Mr. Hervas helped develop an unmanned aerial vehicle used in the Galapagos I slands to deter poachers from mutilating sharks for shark fin soup. He also worked on a project in S outh Africa employing UA Vs to monitor great white sharks. His productive research resulted in 20 peer-reviewed papers. Mr. Hervas completed his dissertation research under the supervision of his Ph.D. advisor Dr. Mahmut Reyhanoglu, a professor of engineering physics. J oined by Dr. Reyhanoglu, Mr. Hervas will next work as a Research Fellow on a project titled "Automatic Landing System for UAVs" at the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological University in S ingapore. Mr. Joslin finished his dissertation research under the supervision of Dr Alan Stolzer, professor and chair of the Doctoral S tudies Department. Mr. Joslin is a chief scientist with the Federal Aviation Administration and used his studies at ERAU to evaluate technology for preventing aircraft accidents on runways. He will take his findings that even the latest technology alerting pilots when two planes are on the same r unway could stand improvement back to the FAA to influence the development of future technology. In an additional role, Mr. J oslin will soon become an adjunct professor for one of Embry-Riddle's worldwide campuses in California and may teach full time after retiring from the F AA. N early 60 other ERAU students are enrolled in the aviation and engineering physics Ph.D. programs. C onference attendance was more than in past years and attracted new members, according to Michael R oglasky, YF&R/Women's C oordinator Field Services. "W e have 182 attending and 53 are first timers," Mr. R oglasky said. I ssues the leadership w eekend program addressed extended beyond the fields. Topics of the biggest concern were finances, inheritance taxes and promoting the farms. "M ost farmers don't promote themselves. They are r aised to be modest," said J oe Siegmeister, assistant director of field services for D istrict IV, which includes V olusia County. "This leadership program helps people bring some out of their shells." M any, like Sam Daugharty, are farming the land their ancestors farmed. "Y ou see some folks you don't see but once a year," said Mr. Daugharty, a softspoken sixth generation farmer in Volusia County. H is plans for the weekend included visiting with friends from North Florida and attending the agritourism sessions. "I t' s another revenue you can make on your farm," Mr. D augharty said. "I may not do it, but it's good to find out about." M any farmers have incorporated agritourism into their farms by creating special areas on their land from corn mazes to having fields for the public to pick their o wn food. Agriculture is so diverse" Mr. Steigmeister said. There's aquaculture, agritours and you-pick. All for people who want to have a special day on a farm." A tour of Volusia and Flagler counties on Saturday took the attendees to fern farms and the Evans Fish Fa r m, specializing in raising sturgeon for caviar, in Pierson to the Florida Agricultural Museum in Flagler C ounty, and a variety of local farms along the way. Mr. Austin said the industry is more complex than it was 40 years ago and many farmers today have secondary educations, calling himself the "extreme" having earned a Ph.D. The dairy farm Mr. Austin works with is like most dairy farms in the state. They provide milk for Publix and W inn-Dixie grocery stores. "I f you buy from them, there's a good chance your getting Florida milk," Mr. A ustin said. "People want to know about their food."

Most people are drawn to texting while driving. Their common excuses are it is only for a moment or it is an important call. It must be stopped. Apparently you think drinking in a car is OK if you are stopped. Apparently you think riding in a car with a loaded gun in your front seat is OK if you are stopped. Open your eyes. Smell the fertilizer not y our false sense of roses. This world is falling over backward to texting. Children are so addicted to it that I am sure your common statement to children texting is oh look isn't that cute. Anything can be overdone. No. 1 get those phones out of cars. No. 2 make it illegal to travel with one whether you are the driver or passenger. No. 3 level heavy fines and jail time against those who break these laws. No. 4 get a class of instruction for those who cannot think straight about texting while driving. I am sure that you would make an excellent student. In response to: Missed the mayhem'I would be curious as to that person's definition of fun. W ould it be the underage drinking by young girls or the dangerous traffic situation these inebriated cyclists created? These dangerous conditions could not be grasped in pictures. I think you missed the point. The point was how dangerous the situation was. How the dangerous situation was apparently ignored by law enforcement and how our beautiful city could gain a r eputation if encouraging drinking and driving. It was not if a person had the option to leave during this event, although, one should not be forced from their homes. It is a matter or safety and laws. F un? How much fun would it be if someone was injured or fatally wounded during this event? Who would be responsible then? In response to: It's the thing on the side of your steering column'R eading the Rants and Raves in the July 12 issue, I felt r eally sad for one ranter. He or she was ranting about the fact people do not use their turn signals. I am sure that everyone who drives has felt that frustration but maybe I can offer a little help. Over 40 years ago, I started driving. I was taught to expect the worst from other drivers. If y ou pay attention to the road and the drivers around y ou, you have a better chance of making it from point A to point B. After all, that is what all of us are trying to do. If yo u' re driving down the road, try if possible to keep from having a car driving at the same pace next to you. That way, should you need to swerve, you won't hit anyone. If you see someone weaving, it can be for many reasons, so it would be wise to give them a little room. If on the freeway and you miss your turn, don't slam on your brakes and try to cross several lanes just to make it, go up to the next one and turn around. If someone comes up from behind and is driving faster than you, let them pass. It's not your job to control their speed. Ye s, it is very frustrating when someone doesn't use their turn signal, but there is not much you can do about that but when coming to an intersection or off ramp be prepared for someone to either turn or hit the brakes. I have been driving for more than 40 years with no accidents and no tickets. So I do hope that this might help y ou.Y esterday's womenDo you remember when a woman was a woman was a woman? It was great. Women tried to stay slender, smelled good and walked with grace. Today, they are stout, forget underarms and speed walk. D id you ever think you would see a woman with tattoos? Only in the circus. Seeing a woman with tattoos r eminds me of seeing a guy driving an 18-wheel truck. Piercing is a turn on to some women. They pierce the tongues, eyelids, lips, ears and unmentionables. They're down at your neighborhood bar drinking beers and wearing their best dungarees, which they call jeans. I nstead of sitting in a posh nightclub decked out in the finery of their dresses, nylon clad legs crossed and sipping martinis. The young men of today cannot appreciate those great days of yesterday. How can they look back on those classy days with those classy dames when they we re never exposed to them?Find a phone boothI had to giggle at the responder to the cell phones in cars topic. Missed the point completely and made me wonder the age of the ranter. M aybe the ranter is too young to know that for decades people drove cars without phones. If they had to make a call they would actually stop their car, get out of the car and walk to a antique called "The Phone Booth." I think the ranter should include themselves in the statement made that the person does not have a brain cell in his or her head. I do believe the complaint about cell phones is a general one that many people are upset about. While there are many who do not touch their cell phones while driving there are just as many who cannot put the phone down. In the past two weeks my husband, who drives a motorcycle, was cut off three times by someone driving while talking or texting on their cell phone. I have sat at a light and watched people rear end cars because they get the green light, but they are so busy texting they don't r ealize their lane is moving. M aybe this will help you understand. It is legal to drink and it is legal to purchase liquor and get in your car and go home. It is not legal to open that alcoholic drink while driving home though many do. If people were responsible and stayed off their phones while driving, then no one would be upset about people having their cell phones in their vehicles. Instead of calling people brainless, maybe take that energy and put it into something more positive. Like educating people about the danger of driving while talking or texting on y our cell phone. Oh, and one last note, back in the "old days" if you broke down, you got out of your vehicle and either walked to one of those antique phone booths or if on a highway, you walked to the call box and called for help. Agrees with DanI read the Land Lines article by Dan Smith in the July 19 H ometown News. I agree with his view that the legalization of pot would be a good thing for Florida. The taxes and license fees would be paid to the state. The law enforcement people then could direct their attention to real crimes and the people who are using pot would feel more at ease. I'd say it's a win-win for all.No so sure, DanI wanted to tell Dan Smith that recently some diners at a fast food business in Michigan found a loaded pot pipe in their kid's meal. Just wanted you to know. Good going, DanI commend Dan Smith for his piece on marijuana. He speaks truth. As a medical professional, I have seen the damages resulting from this overly, and may I say (prescription drug), medicated and alcohol ingesting culture. Many are suffering from health challenges that could be helped by this herb. We need to rethink this. Cancer patients deserve to have this option, as do those suffering from fibromyalgia and other conditions. D an is brave to share and I hope folks will reconsider. So many lives and families are damaged from drugs and alcohol that have multiple and even deadly side effects. It 's all about politics not about people.P arking lot signs still mean stopP eople do not stop at the stop signs at Walmart and W inn-Dixie. I almost got hit again. The police say they can't do anything because it's private property. What can y ou do to make people stop at stop signs? Shop locallyI am a 10-year resident of New Smyrna Beach and I have discovered three new local businesses on Third Av enue a swimwear place, dentist and pizza place. These are three businesses I can walk to from my home. I want to encourage everyone to shop locally. That is how we keep New Smyrna Beach strong. We need to keep independent owners in business. They offer quality services and care. This is what makes New Smyrna Be ach great.In response to: No brain in my head'A pparently you think everyone follows your habit of not texting while driving. Well, let me tell you something Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (386) 322-5902or e-mail newsdy@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. T aking in the actionRandy Barber /staff photographerOne-year-old Aiden Miles of South Daytona would like nothing more than to open his bag of Skittles during the "Justice for Trayvon" National Day of Action Vigil, which was part of a 100 Cities Action on Saturday, July 20. The Daytona Beach event was in front of the Fifth District Federal Court of Appeals on Beach Street. LettersCounty councilman should resignV olusia County Councilman Doug Daniels, District 4, should r esign. Mr. Daniels' acceptance of a $125,000 consulting contract for his company, GDH Corporate Solutions, from the City of Daytona Beach at the City Council meeting last week will raise the unavoidable appearance of conflict of interest on many upcoming votes the council must take. A public officer or employee is prohibited from holding any employment or contract with any business entity or agency regulated by or doing business with his or her public agency. [Sec. 112.313(7), Fla. Statutes. Any vote by the council relating to the City of Daytona Beach and the several other municipalities that include beach properties, and there will be many, could be affected. If C ouncilman Daniels chooses to recuse himself from certain votes, it will leave our council with only 6 voting members and perhaps make it impossible to r each a majority decision on the issue before them. The citizens of District 4 elected Mr. Daniels to represent them on all votes taken by the Volusia County C ouncil, not just some of the votes. By virtue of past experience Councilman Daniels is w ell suited for the position he has contracted for with the city of Daytona Beach. But he cannot ethically, or in good conscience, hold both his elected council seat and his contracted city position. Doug Daniels should do the right thing for the citiz ens of District 4 and the citizens of Volusia County and give up his County Council seat.

Ridgewood Ave. Port Orange 386-756-0700 Check Out Our Website for W eekly Specials The labor market in Volusia County is getting close to that sweet spot where higher wage jobs grow to the point that they start creating other jobs. In J une, the state labor department reported unemployment was at 7.3 percent in Volusia, compared to 7.1 percent in May and 9.1 percent a year ago. While there was the usual bump in the jobless rate with school ending, comparing June to June 2012 shows growth in construction, health care, manufacturing, and business and professional services jobs. W ith those four sectors up, as well as growth in tourism, hospitality and retail trade jobs were up 1,400 jobs from last year. The county isn't quite where it needs to be to become a major producer in the economic recovery. While Volusia produced about 2,000 more jobs from last year, about 2,000 workers found jobs outside the county. So far, labor markets in the surrounding area are performing better than V olusia, but at least the county is headed in the right direction. Right now the average number of jobs in Volusia each month is about 158,000. Goods producing jobs are at 16,800 and the service producing jobs that help create spin off jobs are at about 50,000 jobs. We need to keep seeing those jobs grow by about 1,000 a month to really become part of the economic recovery. *** We ll have more about it soon, but a big story is developing in New Smyrna B each. Houston-based Silvestri Investments, which developed Oceanwalk at N ew Smyrna Beach, has bought the Causeway Landings project site from A tlantic Housing Partners for $2.68 million. For all the folks hoping the original project would get built, with for sale condos instead of r ental apartments, they may get their wish. Silvestri has generally preferred building condos over apartments. In fact, Silvestri just restarted construction at Oceanwalk, adding building 18, so obviously the company believes the condo market is on the upswing. *** W aterfront property in N ew Smyrna Beach apparently has turned around. A 5,000-square-foot oceanfront house recently sold for $3 million, the same as the o wner paid for it in 2004. While the owner didn't make a profit on it, there wasn't a loss either. *** In another developing story, the Coraci family has bought back land it sold to Ma r yland-based Humphrey C orp. at Willow Run and W illiamson boulevards in Po rt Orange for $1.5 million. Anyone with a computer can look at Google maps and figure out new residential development will head in that direction, so that intersection will be ripe for commercial development. *** C ommercial real estate investors continue to have a strong interest in Volusia. S ome recent deals included N ational Retail Properties of Orlando selling the Wendy's properties in New Smyrna B each, South Daytona and W est Ormond Beach to Pa.based American Realty Capital for $3.2 million. Also, ABC Liquors sold its new N ew Smyrna Beach store to P latinum Holdings for $3.18 million. *** On a final note, Brown & Br o wn Inc. continued its march toward becoming a $2 billion company in the second quarter. The Daytona Beach-based insurance agency network and benefits manager posted re venue of $325.8 million in the quarter, up from $290.9 million in the second quarter of 2012. The company's net income was at $52 million, up from $42.5 million last year. The company's growth is getting a boost from the improving national economy with its existing operations adding to the income growth. Add that to its aggressive rate of acquisitions and it is moving closer to becoming the largest insurance seller and manager in the nation. M anaging Editor Cecil G.

Entertainment will W eston-based Florida C ommunity Bank is making the transition from a holding company for the assets of failed banks to one of the state's largest banking operations. FCB recently completed its first negotiated acquisition, buying Great Florida B ank of Coral Gables. Based on Great Florida's most r ecent report of outstanding shares of common stock, the deal is valued at about $42.5 million with FCB paying $2.34 for each share. FCB, a subsidiary of Bond St r eet Holdings, was formed in 2009 and used to maintain the assets of failed banks in cooperation with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Great Florida also was in shaky condition, but FCB already was involved in turning it around, FCB President Kent Ellert said in a telephone interview. "Based on the pricing, we feel OK about the assets of Great Florida." The combined operations put FCB as the fourth largest bank based in Florida with assets of $4.4 billion and 67 offices along both Florida coasts. Mr. Ellert doesn't expect any of the offices will close. "V ery little overlapped between our two operations," he said. FCB is now poised to become a statewide bank, something Florida hasn't had with a state-based bank in several years. It will need to move into the Jacksonville, Panhandle, Tallahassee and Tampa Bay markets to do it. In the news release announcing the deal, Mr. Ellert said, "The transaction with Great Florida Bank is truly a game changer' for our Company as we have been eager to expand our presence in Miami, Florida's largest metro market. We are a Florida-based, Floridafocused company and the merger with Great Florida B ank adds significant scale to our brand and will result in meaningful synergies that will benefit customers and communities of both institutions. "C onsistent with our previously completed eight successful acquisitions, this merger will significantly enhance our Florida footprint and will provide a foundation for us to augment our commercial lending team to further generate organic growth," he said. M. Mehdi Ghomeshi, Pr esident of Great Florida B ank, said in the news r elease, "This merger is a win for our stockholders, customers and banking franchise. This business combination significantly enhances our combined abilities to be one of the financially strongest and most competitive community banking organizations in Florida. We are confident that this merger is a highly attractive strategic alignment for all of our constituents." The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of the fourth quarter of 2013, subject to customary conditions, including r eceipt of regulatory approvals and the approval of Great Florida stockholders. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, July 26, 2013 A9Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

social norm supporting a smoke free environment and support from within academic communities for such policies for campus health and well-being." Ms. Homan has been with DSC for nearly 16 years. When she applied for the grant in 2010, she said, she had a five-year plan, which included getting the information out, conducting surveys, educating students and faculty, and garnering support and backup. S he worked fast. And, she said, she had a lot of help. "T his has been really supported by student groups," Ms. Homan said. "W ithout them we wouldn' t have been succe ssful with all of the surveys." It stands to reason a fitness advocate would be opposed to the use of tobacco products, but Ms. H oman's motivator was closer than her vocation to her heart. "M y father was 53 when he died of a massive stroke," she said. "He was a heavy smoker. That's the reason I feel so passionate. I don't want this to happen to other families. I had to learn the hard way." Cigarette smoking approximately doubles a person's risk for stroke, and cigarette smokers are two to four times more likely to develop coronary heart disease than nonsmokers, according to the Centers for D isease Control and Prevention. In 2010 when the grant was awarded, 430 colleges in the United States were tobacco free, Ms. Homan said. As of July 8, there are at least 1,182 college campuses nationwide that have gone 100 percent smoke-free, according to the American N on-Smokers' Rights Foundation. Of those, 798 have gone entirely tobacco-free, with still more considering their own policies, the ANRF r eported. N early all institutions in the Central Florida region have already adopted tobacco-free campus policies or are considering them, according to DSC's website. Ms. Homan said during the 2012 Cigarette Butt PickUp and Earth Day event, students, student-athletes, staff and members of the V olusia County Health D epartment removed 15,000 butts from the Daytona Beach Campus in just one hour. This year around 9,000 butts were removed from the grounds of the Daytona B each Campus; lesser amounts were picked up at other branch campuses, DSC's website reported. The tobacco-free policy should eliminate the need for counting next year. Ms. Homan said the AHEC has been invaluable to the effort. The grant is helping to offset the cost of the policy, including the purchase of campus signs, and the organization facilitates the smoking cessation classes, which are open to the public, in addition to providing four weeks of nicotine r eplacement therapy to participants. Last fall Embry-Riddle Ae r onautical University announced it will implement a tobacco-free policy, also effective Aug. 1. B ethune-Cookman University also prohibits use of tobacco products on campus. "W e are trying to coordinate classes with EmbryRiddle and Bethune-Cookman on our campuses monthly so opportunities exist to all students, staff and general public," Ms. H oman said. O ther Florida colleges and universities with 100 percent tobacco-free campuses, according to the ANRF, are Edison State College, F lorida Hospital College of H ealth Sciences, Florida I nternational University, F lorida State College of Jacksonville, Florida State University, Gulf Coast State College, Hillsborough Community College, Miami-Dade C ollege, Nova Southeastern U niversity, South Florida C ommunity College, University of Florida, University of Florida Health Services/ S hands, Seminole State College, University of South F lorida Health and Warner U niversity. The state of Florida has quite a few (tobacco free campuses) compared to other states," Ms. Homan said, "and we should be proud Florida is proud." T obacco-free Florida has compiled a list of organizations that offer free or lowcost smoking cessation programs for those seeking help to quit. For information on sm ok ing-cessation classes in the area visit daytonastate.edu/ nobutts. upon cease fire date, but no peace treaty has ever been agreed upon. Now in 2013, 60 years later, there is still only an uneasy truce." The exhibit is small, but educational and will have historical artifacts that give a sense of understanding of the war to all who attend. "W ithout glorifying war, it adds to the richness of the existing New Smyrna Museum of History," Mr. McGuire said. All Korean War Veterans of V olusia and Flagler counties will be honored at 2 pm in the park next to the museum at 120 Sams Ave. The ceremony will consist of a w elcome by Mr. McGuire followed by a proclamation from Mayor Adam Barr inger. The Marine Corp. League will present the Colors followed by the National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance. Rev. Jim Cook will deliver the Invocation and Larry Skates, president of the New Smyrna Museum of H istory, will have a few r emarks. Pastor Hur of the Ko r ean Baptist Church of D aytona Beach will say a Pr ayer of Reunification and Chuck Husband, president of the KWVA Chapter 189 will dedicate the new exhibit. The special guest speaker will be Jason Davis, Volusia C ounty Council Chair and a G ulf War Veteran, and the closing ceremony will consist of retiring the Colors and a benediction. Mr. Mc G uire invites all veterans from not only the Korean Wa r, but World War II, Vietnam and the more recent conflicts to attend to support their brothers-in-arms. S outh Korea has risen to be one of the world's fastest growing economies, ranking 10th on the world stage, according to Mr. McGuire. They also continue to be one of the United States staunchest allies." "A r ound the world, the 22 nations which joined the U nited States under the cooperative banner of the U nited Nations are today celebrating this victory over the forceful spread of communism," explained Mr. McG uire. "North Korea, aided by the USSR and China's vast military potential, failed physically and philosophically to dominate S outh Korea. North Korea has squandered its r esources in the mythical defense of its philosophy while its people continue to live lives that most of the world finds reprehensible and inexcusable," stated Mr. Mc G uire. July 27, 2013, will be a day to remember those who died for freedom in Ko r ea and to honor those who fought and stopped the advance of communism and suppression of the common people of South Korea.

Peninsula Drive (9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday, W ednesday and Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday. This campaign will run through Aug. 15. On a scorching day in J une, Litsa Taylor ran through the hot, soft sand on the beach. Fatigue, heat and sore muscles urged her to quit. Everyone who's ever been affected by cancer pulled her through the sand and pushed her to the triathlon's finish line. "I wanted to quit, but I thought I'm not a quitter and I thought of the people with cancer who can't run, who've passed or are in a bed," Mrs. Taylor said. Thinking of them gives me that extra push." Mrs. Taylor represents Me St r ong, the rapidly growing non-profit organization initiated in 2011 by four D eLand women. They wanted to do something to help their beloved friend, Linda R yan, who was facing cancer for the third time. They couldn't sit by and sit still. After all, Ms. Ryan never does. S he overcame thyroid cancer in 2002, cervical cancer 2004, and ran a marathon just four weeks before being told the cervical cancer had recurred, showing up in her lymph nodes. Barbara Underhill, K im Martin, Kim Winters and Kathy Guyer were determined to find a way to help. "K im Winters called me r ight before my first chemo (treatment)," Ms. Ryan said. The group of friends had decided they wanted to do a 5k run benefit to honor Ms. R yan. "I didn't want it to be just about let's raise money to fight cancer," Ms. Ryan said. "I wanted people to be active. I was in the best shape of my life so I felt strong going into my battle and I feel like if you're in good shape mentally and physically, you're better equipped to conquer anything." The five of them marched forward carrying that message. Many others have fallen into step. In two years, Me Strong has raised $25,000; 60 percent has been given to cancer patients and their families for medications, treatment and diversions, such as dinner out with their families. Pr oceeds have gone to, among others, a cancerstricken mother of twins, a 16 year-old-boy with brain cancer and a woman with metastatic breast cancer. The rest of the funds r aised have been donated to cancer research. That first 5k race in D eLand was on Jan. 28, 2012. It was expected to attract 300 participants. S ocial media, community newspaper coverage and Ms. Ryan's open, honest blog about her journey through c ancer saw to it the r oster was three times that number. The 5k is Me St r ong's flagship annual fundraiser, and Mrs. Taylor said, in its second year, the r ace drew 1,200 runners, making it the largest 5k r ace ever in Volusia County. In 2012, VP Communications President Vickie P leus and the Me Strong Linda's Run for the Dr eam" 5k won a Florida P ublic Relations Association Judges' Award at the Orlando Area Chapter I mage Awards program in the very competitive special event category. Mrs. Taylor, who teaches F ashion Marketing at D eLand High School, ran in both 5ks, winning first place in her age division each time. S he said the Me Strong founders contacted her offering to sponsor her in other events as a way to market their organization. "So I do events all over F lorida representing Me St r ong," Mrs. Taylor said. The 35-year-old mother of three children displays the Me Strong logo as she participates in triathlons, r aces" anything to get exposure," she explained. Aside from displaying the logo, Mrs. Taylor talks to other contestants and attendees at the events about the endeavor and the group's accomplishments. "I t' s an honor for me to r epresent such an elite group of women, those five women who embody everything I look up to," Mrs. Taylor said. "I may not win every race, but it's more important for me to be a positive influence for my children, my friends and the community." Mrs. Taylor is an active member of Stetson Baptist Church. Her three children, Carson, 7, Reese, 4, and Caroline, 2, inspire her to lead by example. She wants them to see their mother being physically and spiritually active, eating right, achieving goals and inspiring goal-setting in others. Those ambitions did not go unnoticed by Me St r ong's founding five. "B asically, they thought I embodied everything Me St r ong stood for," Mrs. Taylor said. "I have an active lifestyle. I work, am active in the community. I'm a mom and I try to teach my kids to live a healthy lifestyle." S he said she only started r unning about two years ago, right around the time of the first 5k race, but she's always enjoyed physical activities including biking, spinning and cross-fit, and is a "huge" supporter of the DeLand YMCA. R unning added a whole new dimension to Mrs. T aylor's life and allows her to devote more time to one that was solidly in place before her feet hit the pavement. "G od is my number one, my support system," Mrs. T aylor said. "When I'm r unning I have a lot of time. That's when I think, pray and clear my head. I can make a lot of decisions and I just kind of feel free." Often, she pushes a double stroller containing her two girls, which provides the added benefit of quality family time. Ms. Ryan considers running a lifesaver. In 2011, she participated in a clinical trial at MD Anderson Cancer Center in H ouston where she underw ent eight rounds of chemotherapy. Each treatment included a nine-hour infusion. Between flights to Houston for treatments she ran for her life. "I did two half marathons and three 5ks," Ms. Ryan said. "For me, being outside and being active was my way of letting cancer know it would not win." By Ma r ch 2012, there was no evidence of disease in her body. The organization's name originated prior to Ms. R yan's 2011 diagnosis during a trip she, Mrs. Winters and Mrs. Winters' daughter took to Boston. "We were doing a power walk in Boston Garden and this woman ran by," Ms. R yan said. "She looked so confident and strong and K im looked at me and said, M e strong woman!'" Sh e' s not the only one. Ms. Ryan said Me Strong has given each of the five women something. "W e each find purpose, satisfaction and gratification through doing this and giving back to others, and telling my story has been therapeutic for me," she said. Also for her, the effort gave deeper meaning to the concept of friendship. These friends what they've done to honor me, to help me through my battle, it really defines what friendship should be and is," she said. "Honestly, I'm thankful for my cancer. So much good has come out of it." www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, July 26, 2013 A11Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

CopelandF ront house manager Lisa Couture and Tufo's Bistro owner Sam Tufo welcome diners to the new Italian restaurant in Daytona Beach Shores.By J. M. CopelandF or Hometown News C ounty music artist Dustin Seymour will perform at a free concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 26, at the Daytona Beach B andshell. Mr. Seymour has been singing since the age of 2 when he would watch his dad and his gospel group "The Jeremiah S ingers" perform at churches in the Southeast. He remembers running up to the stage and demanding to hold the microphone. He started performing at 7 and began singing professionally at 10. He attended Belmont University in Nashville and fell in love with songwriting. While there, he picked up the guitar and started writing his own music. He has performed with Alan Jackson, Dolly Parton and the O ak Ridge Boys. C ountry music and bluegrass are his first loves, but he's always been drawn to different sounds. From R&B artists to bands like U2, Radiohead and singer-songwriters, even classical music. All of these different styles have molded him into a different kind of country music. F ollowing the path of artists like Ronnie Milsap and Conway Twitty, he has become a performer of what he likes to call Country Soul. It's country music with something extra. After walking away from a terrible car accident with nothing more than a few scratches, his eyes were opened. He knew there was more that he was meant to do, to say ... to sing. That's what he was able to do with his new EP "What I'm Made Of." The songs were written with healing and progress in mind. The concert series is made possible by the Daytona Beach C ultural Services Department and promoter Wyatt Davis.

would ever finish the generous portion. Oh, but I did and even left room for homemade tiramisu while my husband finished his meal with bread pudding. The menu even includes hamburgers, hotdogs and torpedoes. Mr. Tufo said tourists checking in late and locals wanting a later bite to eat can come by for a quick meal to dine in or carry out. The personal service extends to the owner himself as Mr. Tufo regularly visits with diners during the meal to make sure all is what they expected. Even when he is in the kitchen, Mr. Tufo has a system to determine if a customer enjoyed their meal. If I see a plate come back and there's still a lot of food on it and no one has asked for a to-go box I go out and ask if there was a problem. I want them to tell me the truth. It won't hurt my feelings," he said. Tu fo's opened June 19 and, in that time, he has made new friends, including local hotel managers, but not all of his guests are strangers, many followed him and his staff from his previous restaurant, Crane's R oost in the Crane Lakes community. "I wanted to get out into the open so people could see me. My other restaurant was in a gated community," he said. So where does Mr. Tufo go if he wants a home cooked meal? His mom's, of course. "N o one cooks better than me ... except my mom. When I want homemade food, I go home." Fo r tunately the rest of us can go to Tufo's. Location: 3218 S.

Just back from a couple days at beautiful S ebastian Inlet just south of Melbourne. F or me, spending time there is like a visit with an old friend. Almost 40 years ago my wife, Lana, and I began going there to camp on an island to fish and clam for days on end. As time went on, our tent also became occupied by our daughter, Shayla, and son, Landan, both of whom visited that inlet while still toddlers. On this trip, Shayla brought along her 10-yearold daughter, Delayna, and Landan was accompanied by his wife, Sarah, who is carrying our first grandson. Although Sebastian Inlet is still the most remote inlet on Florida's east coast, it has grown some and is now surrounded by a nice state park. Our tent has given way to a motor home since Lana and I are not quite as sturdy as we were back in the '70s. F ishing at Sebastian is always good and the place is world famous for the snook that sometimes gather there. If y ou go there and find the jetty fishing platforms lined with anglers, you will know the snook bite is on. That was not the case this time, but we still had fun catching bluefish, small red and black drum, and ladyfish. The Sebastian I nlet Park goes from the beach to the Indian River and it is not unusual to happen upon a real fishing event there. M any years ago, I had the boat on the trailer and was heading home when I noticed the beach was lined with surf fishermen. I had to stop to see what was going on and found each angler had a bucket full of pompano. They were in close and biting like mad on anything you could throw. I quickly joined the fun and caught nearly 20 fat pompano on a silver spoon. Another time I was there alone and, with the fishing slow, I joined other boats anchored in the inlet to just catch some winter sun and while away the day. All of a sudden my rod and every r od in the other four boats bent double and we all landed huge bluefish. Mine was over eight pounds and is still one of the largest I have ever caught. Only one to the customer as they we re obviously just passing through. B ack when the state was about to ban nets, Lana and I decided to take our 50-foot drag net to Sebastian to catch black drum one last time. In an area where we had enjoyed past success, I walked the net in a circle in water up to my armpits. As I headed back to shore it was obvious we had a lot of fish. When the net began to tighten the fish panicked and began to jump high over the net to escape. S nook! We had gathered about 30 snook in our net. Of course, it was then and is now illegal to take snook like that, but it sure was fun. To prepare for my trip to S ebastian Inlet I knew I had to do some work on my little 50-horse Evinrude. It had been running rough and I knew the two carbur etors were probably gummed up. F or years, I have relied on the good folks at N eptune Marine to do the r epairs I cannot (or the ones I am too lazy to do). Gordon and his son, Chad, have kept me and many more running for a lot of y ears. Usually they will offer a few solutions to any problem depending on my budget. Many years ago I needed a used boat and when I told Chad I was willing to pay $2,000 for a 16-foot Aquaforce boat, motor and trailer, his first re sponse was "oh, you will get it cheaper than that." He brokered a deal with his dad and I bought the boat for $1,600. You have to admire that kind of honesty. Because of that honesty Gordon and Chad have made that $400 back from me many times over. On this occasion, Chad tore down my carbs and cleaned them and rewired my electric choke to make the Evinrude purr like a kitten a very talented y oung man. Trouble is, now Chad is telling me he is considering leaving the shop to pursue a career in nursing. While that is a worthwhile calling, I hope he changes his mind. His dad Gordon is like myself in that he is getting a bit long in the tooth and nearing r etirement. Chad and hard working Ned would be the obvious choice to keep up the service. A talented and honest boat mechanic is a resource we can't afford to lose. If any of you who trade there agree, stop by and tell Chad we need him and to stay put. N eptune Marine is at 801 N.

The Sweetwater Coalition is a group of citizens who are concerned the proposed extension of W illiamson Road, from where it ends at Airport R oad to its proposed intersection with Pioneer Tr ail, is going to negatively impact the wetlands and quality of water of Spruce Creek. Mr. LaMontagne presented several items to the developer, Pioneer Community Development District, about its 60 percent complete plan that concern Sweetwater Coalition members. He also claims the acreage impacted does not match the numbers the district has provided in its plan. In his presentation, he stated the city donated 12.5 acres of wetland credits to the project in October 2012. In the districts plan cross-section maps the total acres of affected wetlands shown equals 15.9 acres. The total wetlands on-site according to the U.S. Corps of Engineers permit is 18.06 acres and the districts wetlands permit request states 6.92 acres will be affected. The coalition wants clarification on the differences in the acreage affected. R epeated attempts on the part of Mr. LaMontagne and the coalition have gone unanswered by the district or were inadequately answered by Volusia County, according to Mr. LaMontagne. The coalition had three goals in bringing their concerns before the council; first, for the city to help open a dialogue with the county to adequately answer their questions; second, for the city to help find the answers to their questions concerning the cost and mitigation of the road; and third, to inform the council of details on the project they might not be aware of.

Y oung farmers bring families, learn leadershipThe 2013 Florida Farm Bur eau State Young Farmers and Ranchers Leadership C onference July 12 to 14 could easily been mistaken for a family reunion and in many ways thats just what it was. These families were all part of the 1 percent who grow the food, raise the beef and provide the dairy for the rest of us. The annual conference at the Hilton Daytona Beach O ceanfront Resort was more than a place to glean information, it was also an opportunity to meet up with friends, show off new members of the family and compare notes of personal and farm milestones in the past year. Br ad Austin, president of the Leadership Community of Young Farmers & Ranchers, works on his in-laws dairy ranch in Jackson C ounty with his wife M eghan, a large animal veterinarian. Mr. Austin grew up in Fort Lauderdale, not known for farming, and welcomes the opportunity to talk to the few who understand the farming life. For him, the love of farming came during his first year at the University of Florida, later than most of his peers. M ost of my friends from high school dont understand what I do. This weekend allows us to interact with people that are going through the same things we are, V eterans of the Korean W ar from Volusia and Flagler counties will be honored by the Department of F lorida Korean War Veterans Association on Saturday, July 27. The celebration opens a new Korean War display at the New Smyrna Museum of History at 120 Sams Ave. in New Smyrna Beach. The Korean War ended where it began, along the 28th parallel, said Bob McG uire, senior vice president of DoFKWVA. After three years of vicious struggle and as many as 3 million lives lost, North Korea r emained a communist nation and South Korea r emained a free nation.

The prohibition extends to all DSC employees, students, and persons on college property, according to the DSC policy manual. Use of tobacco products is not prohibited in an individuals auto on the property. M ultiple surveys re vealed a majority of Daytona State students, faculty and staff supported a tobacco-free campus policy, according to the colleges website. A majority of those surveyed who said they do smoke indicated that they would like to quit, mirroring numerous state and national surveys of tobacco users, DSC reported. N ancy Homan is the fitness and aquatic center coordinator in the health and wellness department at DSC. She is the principal investigator for the grant funded through the Area H ealth & Education Center of Northeast Florida, AHEC, which provides educational materials, health screening tools, and visual aids on the hazards of smoking and dangers of second hand smoke, in addition to free smoking cessation classes. The grant proposal was a collaborative effort involving several departments and clubs including School of Health, Human and P ublic Services, School of H ealth & Wellness, Student Government Association, Environmental, Dental and Respiratory clubs and C ounseling Services.

ect according to districts plan, pointing out the route for the new road is now taking it farther east to hug Interstate 95, which the district says will be less of an impact to the wetlands. The new design, however, increases the area of wetlands to the west of the road it plans to develop, which appears on the plan map to encompass nearly all of the w etland area. Mr. LaMontagne feels this would increase the impact rather than decrease it. He also informed the council the entire area was part of the Spruce Creek watershed with the area affected being the last significant wetland supplying Spruce Creek. Anything that goes into that area would eventually affect Spr uce Creek, which has already been designated an impaired waterway in an environmental study. Normally there is a BMAP created when one of these surveys is conducted that maps out the best way to improve a watershed, said Mr. LaMontagne. There has not been any BMAP done and we would like this council to ensure that one is completed before construction begins. Mr. LaMontagne also pointed out there had not been any tree survey done and the plan did not show any trees being planted in the proposed extra wide sod median. A lot of the impact to the wetlands could be reduced if they just shrink the size of the road, Mr. LaMontagne said. It appears they decided to make it double lanes in both directions because they over estimated the population of Port Orange in their survey. He added the proposed sidewalk and bike trail also increased the width of the r oad and therefore its impact on the wetlands. The Sweetwater Coalition presented the city with the following suggestions concerning the project: Reduce the road to two lanes, shrink or remove the extra-wide 22 foot median, leave the median in its original condition with its native trees, but if that cant be possible, then plant trees and not keep it a sod median as proposed. The coalition also suggests having the sidewalk meander around shade trees to add scenic charm and decrease the overall road width from 130 feet to the standard size of 100 feet, and to demand tree mitigation for more types of trees. The final request is for the city and county not to build the road at all and save the taxpayers the estimated $10 million the district expects it will cost to develop. The council took a few minutes to discuss the information presented and identified the current plan by the district is to finish the design plan and all required studies by this fall and begin construction and have the project completed by J une 2014. The council then asked if he had given this presentation to the County Council and Mr. LaMontagne answered he had not. I did not because first they said they had no tree surveys and second they said, I t s being built within county standards. Mr. LaMontagne told the City Council this was not an acceptable answer. We dont want it to be just standard. We want it to be outstanding and beneficial to the waterways. Spr uce Creek means a lot to me, he said. I graduated from Spruce Creek High School. We want it to be aesthetically pleasing and to have the least impact on the wetlands as possible. The council suggested it would be in the coalitions best interest and would help their cause best if they gave the same presentation to V olusia County. They also suggested presenting the information to Port Oranges Envir onmental Board, feeling that would be the best department to help them with their r equests. Mr. LaMontagne said he would follow both suggestions. F riday, July 26, 2013 Hometown News A2Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

McLeod, M.D. Richard K. Gaines, M.D. D onald Huggard, P.A.-CSince 1997S pecializing in General Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, to include, but not limited to: Zimmerman trial reveals an ugly truthThe trial in Sanford attracted lots of national attention. Civil rights leaders from across the country converged on Seminole County, carrying signs demanding justice. The protestors told the media they only wanted George Zimmerman to be brought to trial. The problem was the facts of the case did not bear out a criminal prosecution. After the shooting of the black teenager, Trayvon Mar tin, the Sanford Chief of P olice was fired for refusing to immediately arrest Mr. Z immerman. The Seminole C ounty Assistant States A ttorney also did not move quickly enough for the protestors and Gov. Rick Scott was pressured into appointing a special prosecutor from Jacksonville. Angela Corey the D istrict 4 States Attorney had an ethical responsibility not to proceed with the case unless there was sufficient evidence, but the trial went on. After three weeks and 56 witnesses in the most onesided legal proceeding I have ever witnessed, it was clear Mr. Zimmerman had acted in self-defense and he was completely exonerated. That result was not satisfactory to the African American community. Al Sharpton and the NAACP then demanded the federal government bring charges that Mr. Zimmerman violated Mr. Martins civil r ights. That is a charge only enacted to appease people who are not happy with the r esults of a legal trial. It r eeks of double jeopardy. B ack in the late 1970s, a cousin of mine shot a man to death in Savannah, Ga. After an argument in a bar, my cousin went to his car to leave, but was followed. He took a .22 caliber pistol from the vehicle and killed the man. The shooter was charged with first-degree murder, but was acquitted on grounds of self-defense. Although witnesses said the man had threatened my cousin, he had never r eceived a single blow. That case drew almost no interest. Even the Savannah newspaper barely mentioned it. I wonder how that would have played out had the victim not been a white man. After the Zimmerman trial, there was a lot of talk about racism and the inequalities of our justice system. It is true racism still divides our nation, but protesting the outcome of a jury trial will only deepen that divide. All people must accept the findings of our legal system and live within it. There is no better way. On March 21, the most horrific crime in recent memory was committed in Br unswick, Ga. That coastal town is just a few minutes north of Jacksonville on I nterstate 95. In that case a y oung white mother was out for a walk with her 13month-old son in a stroller. On a city street in broad daylight she was accosted by two black teenagers who demanded money. When she told them she had none, they shot her. Now wounded, she begged for mercy, but the two attackers told her if she did not produce the cash they would shoot her infant son. They did. The baby was shot in the head and died instantly. In a short time, the police had the two suspects in custody and they are now awaiting trial. Y ou may not have heard about that case. No national media converged on Br unswick. Al Sharpton or J esse Jackson did not show up and President Obama did not give any statements concerning that crime. The white people of the town did not take to the streets. When that trial is over and if somehow the two thugs are set free, there will be no demonstrations or violent outrage. We live in a society governed by rules. Unless those rules apply to us all, r acism is bound to continue.

In an Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University milestone, the first students have completed the r esearch-based Ph.D. degree programs the university launched in 2010. J aime Rubio Hervas earned a Ph.D. in engineering physics and R obert Buck Joslin a P h.D. in aviation. Dur ing his studies at Embry-Riddle, Mr. Hervas helped develop an unmanned aerial vehicle used in the Galapagos I slands to deter poachers from mutilating sharks for shark fin soup. He also worked on a project in S outh Africa employing UA Vs to monitor great white sharks. His productive research resulted in 20 peer-reviewed papers. Mr. Hervas completed his dissertation research under the supervision of his Ph.D. advisor Dr. Mahmut Reyhanoglu, a professor of engineering physics. J oined by Dr. Reyhanoglu, Mr. Hervas will next work as a Research Fellow on a project titled Automatic Landing System for UAVs at the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological University in S ingapore. Mr. Joslin finished his dissertation research under the supervision of Dr Alan Stolzer, professor and chair of the Doctoral S tudies Department. Mr. Joslin is a chief scientist with the Federal Aviation Administration and used his studies at ERAU to evaluate technology for preventing aircraft accidents on runways. He will take his findings that even the latest technology alerting pilots when two planes are on the same r unway could stand improvement back to the FAA to influence the development of future technology. In an additional role, Mr. J oslin will soon become an adjunct professor for one of Embry-Riddles worldwide campuses in California and may teach full time after retiring from the F AA. N early 60 other ERAU students are enrolled in the aviation and engineering physics Ph.D. programs. C onference attendance was more than in past years and attracted new members, according to Michael R oglasky, YF&R/Womens C oordinator Field Services. W e have 182 attending and 53 are first timers, Mr. R oglasky said. I ssues the leadership w eekend program addressed extended beyond the fields. Topics of the biggest concern were finances, inheritance taxes and promoting the farms. M ost farmers dont promote themselves. They are r aised to be modest, said J oe Siegmeister, assistant director of field services for D istrict IV, which includes V olusia County. This leadership program helps people bring some out of their shells. M any, like Sam Daugharty, are farming the land their ancestors farmed. Y ou see some folks you dont see but once a year, said Mr. Daugharty, a softspoken sixth generation farmer in Volusia County. H is plans for the weekend included visiting with friends from North Florida and attending the agritourism sessions. I t s another revenue you can make on your farm, Mr. D augharty said. I may not do it, but its good to find out about. M any farmers have incorporated agritourism into their farms by creating special areas on their land from corn mazes to having fields for the public to pick their o wn food. Agriculture is so diverse Mr. Steigmeister said. Theres aquaculture, agritours and you-pick. All for people who want to have a special day on a farm. A tour of Volusia and Flagler counties on Saturday took the attendees to fern farms and the Evans Fish Far m, specializing in raising sturgeon for caviar, in Pierson to the Florida Agricultural Museum in Flagler C ounty, and a variety of local farms along the way. Mr. Austin said the industry is more complex than it was 40 years ago and many farmers today have secondary educations, calling himself the extreme having earned a Ph.D. The dairy farm Mr. Austin works with is like most dairy farms in the state. They provide milk for Publix and W inn-Dixie grocery stores. I f you buy from them, theres a good chance your getting Florida milk, Mr. A ustin said. People want to know about their food.

Most people are drawn to texting while driving. Their common excuses are it is only for a moment or it is an important call. It must be stopped. Apparently you think drinking in a car is OK if you are stopped. Apparently you think riding in a car with a loaded gun in your front seat is OK if you are stopped. Open your eyes. Smell the fertilizer not y our false sense of roses. This world is falling over backward to texting. Children are so addicted to it that I am sure your common statement to children texting is oh look isnt that cute. Anything can be overdone. No. 1 get those phones out of cars. No. 2 make it illegal to travel with one whether you are the driver or passenger. No. 3 level heavy fines and jail time against those who break these laws. No. 4 get a class of instruction for those who cannot think straight about texting while driving. I am sure that you would make an excellent student. In response to: Missed the mayhemI would be curious as to that persons definition of fun. W ould it be the underage drinking by young girls or the dangerous traffic situation these inebriated cyclists created? These dangerous conditions could not be grasped in pictures. I think you missed the point. The point was how dangerous the situation was. How the dangerous situation was apparently ignored by law enforcement and how our beautiful city could gain a r eputation if encouraging drinking and driving. It was not if a person had the option to leave during this event, although, one should not be forced from their homes. It is a matter or safety and laws. F un? How much fun would it be if someone was injured or fatally wounded during this event? Who would be responsible then? In response to: Its the thing on the side of your steering columnR eading the Rants and Raves in the July 12 issue, I felt r eally sad for one ranter. He or she was ranting about the fact people do not use their turn signals. I am sure that everyone who drives has felt that frustration but maybe I can offer a little help. Over 40 years ago, I started driving. I was taught to expect the worst from other drivers. If y ou pay attention to the road and the drivers around y ou, you have a better chance of making it from point A to point B. After all, that is what all of us are trying to do. If yo u re driving down the road, try if possible to keep from having a car driving at the same pace next to you. That way, should you need to swerve, you wont hit anyone. If you see someone weaving, it can be for many reasons, so it would be wise to give them a little room. If on the freeway and you miss your turn, dont slam on your brakes and try to cross several lanes just to make it, go up to the next one and turn around. If someone comes up from behind and is driving faster than you, let them pass. Its not your job to control their speed. Ye s, it is very frustrating when someone doesnt use their turn signal, but there is not much you can do about that but when coming to an intersection or off ramp be prepared for someone to either turn or hit the brakes. I have been driving for more than 40 years with no accidents and no tickets. So I do hope that this might help y ou.Y esterdays womenDo you remember when a woman was a woman was a woman? It was great. Women tried to stay slender, smelled good and walked with grace. Today, they are stout, forget underarms and speed walk. D id you ever think you would see a woman with tattoos? Only in the circus. Seeing a woman with tattoos r eminds me of seeing a guy driving an 18-wheel truck. Piercing is a turn on to some women. They pierce the tongues, eyelids, lips, ears and unmentionables. Theyre down at your neighborhood bar drinking beers and wearing their best dungarees, which they call jeans. I nstead of sitting in a posh nightclub decked out in the finery of their dresses, nylon clad legs crossed and sipping martinis. The young men of today cannot appreciate those great days of yesterday. How can they look back on those classy days with those classy dames when they we re never exposed to them?Find a phone boothI had to giggle at the responder to the cell phones in cars topic. Missed the point completely and made me wonder the age of the ranter. M aybe the ranter is too young to know that for decades people drove cars without phones. If they had to make a call they would actually stop their car, get out of the car and walk to a antique called The Phone Booth. I think the ranter should include themselves in the statement made that the person does not have a brain cell in his or her head. I do believe the complaint about cell phones is a general one that many people are upset about. While there are many who do not touch their cell phones while driving there are just as many who cannot put the phone down. In the past two weeks my husband, who drives a motorcycle, was cut off three times by someone driving while talking or texting on their cell phone. I have sat at a light and watched people rear end cars because they get the green light, but they are so busy texting they dont r ealize their lane is moving. M aybe this will help you understand. It is legal to drink and it is legal to purchase liquor and get in your car and go home. It is not legal to open that alcoholic drink while driving home though many do. If people were responsible and stayed off their phones while driving, then no one would be upset about people having their cell phones in their vehicles. Instead of calling people brainless, maybe take that energy and put it into something more positive. Like educating people about the danger of driving while talking or texting on y our cell phone. Oh, and one last note, back in the old days if you broke down, you got out of your vehicle and either walked to one of those antique phone booths or if on a highway, you walked to the call box and called for help. Agrees with DanI read the Land Lines article by Dan Smith in the July 19 H ometown News. I agree with his view that the legalization of pot would be a good thing for Florida. The taxes and license fees would be paid to the state. The law enforcement people then could direct their attention to real crimes and the people who are using pot would feel more at ease. Id say its a win-win for all.No so sure, DanI wanted to tell Dan Smith that recently some diners at a fast food business in Michigan found a loaded pot pipe in their kids meal. Just wanted you to know. Good going, DanI commend Dan Smith for his piece on marijuana. He speaks truth. As a medical professional, I have seen the damages resulting from this overly, and may I say (prescription drug), medicated and alcohol ingesting culture. Many are suffering from health challenges that could be helped by this herb. We need to rethink this. Cancer patients deserve to have this option, as do those suffering from fibromyalgia and other conditions. D an is brave to share and I hope folks will reconsider. So many lives and families are damaged from drugs and alcohol that have multiple and even deadly side effects. It s all about politics not about people.P arking lot signs still mean stopP eople do not stop at the stop signs at Walmart and W inn-Dixie. I almost got hit again. The police say they cant do anything because its private property. What can y ou do to make people stop at stop signs? Shop locallyI am a 10-year resident of New Smyrna Beach and I have discovered three new local businesses on Third Av enue a swimwear place, dentist and pizza place. These are three businesses I can walk to from my home. I want to encourage everyone to shop locally. That is how we keep New Smyrna Beach strong. We need to keep independent owners in business. They offer quality services and care. This is what makes New Smyrna Be ach great.In response to: No brain in my headA pparently you think everyone follows your habit of not texting while driving. Well, let me tell you something Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (386) 322-5902or e-mail newsdy@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. T aking in the actionRandy Barber /staff photographerOne-year-old Aiden Miles of South Daytona would like nothing more than to open his bag of Skittles during the Justice for Trayvon National Day of Action Vigil, which was part of a 100 Cities Action on Saturday, July 20. The Daytona Beach event was in front of the Fifth District Federal Court of Appeals on Beach Street. LettersCounty councilman should resignV olusia County Councilman Doug Daniels, District 4, should r esign. Mr. Daniels acceptance of a $125,000 consulting contract for his company, GDH Corporate Solutions, from the City of Daytona Beach at the City Council meeting last week will raise the unavoidable appearance of conflict of interest on many upcoming votes the council must take. A public officer or employee is prohibited from holding any employment or contract with any business entity or agency regulated by or doing business with his or her public agency. [Sec. 112.313(7), Fla. Statutes. Any vote by the council relating to the City of Daytona Beach and the several other municipalities that include beach properties, and there will be many, could be affected. If C ouncilman Daniels chooses to recuse himself from certain votes, it will leave our council with only 6 voting members and perhaps make it impossible to r each a majority decision on the issue before them. The citizens of District 4 elected Mr. Daniels to represent them on all votes taken by the Volusia County C ouncil, not just some of the votes. By virtue of past experience Councilman Daniels is w ell suited for the position he has contracted for with the city of Daytona Beach. But he cannot ethically, or in good conscience, hold both his elected council seat and his contracted city position. Doug Daniels should do the right thing for the citiz ens of District 4 and the citizens of Volusia County and give up his County Council seat.

Ridgewood Ave. Port Orange 386-756-0700 Check Out Our Website for W eekly Specials The labor market in Volusia County is getting close to that sweet spot where higher wage jobs grow to the point that they start creating other jobs. In J une, the state labor department reported unemployment was at 7.3 percent in Volusia, compared to 7.1 percent in May and 9.1 percent a year ago. While there was the usual bump in the jobless rate with school ending, comparing June to June 2012 shows growth in construction, health care, manufacturing, and business and professional services jobs. W ith those four sectors up, as well as growth in tourism, hospitality and retail trade jobs were up 1,400 jobs from last year. The county isnt quite where it needs to be to become a major producer in the economic recovery. While Volusia produced about 2,000 more jobs from last year, about 2,000 workers found jobs outside the county. So far, labor markets in the surrounding area are performing better than V olusia, but at least the county is headed in the right direction. Right now the average number of jobs in Volusia each month is about 158,000. Goods producing jobs are at 16,800 and the service producing jobs that help create spin off jobs are at about 50,000 jobs. We need to keep seeing those jobs grow by about 1,000 a month to really become part of the economic recovery. *** We ll have more about it soon, but a big story is developing in New Smyrna B each. Houston-based Silvestri Investments, which developed Oceanwalk at N ew Smyrna Beach, has bought the Causeway Landings project site from A tlantic Housing Partners for $2.68 million. For all the folks hoping the original project would get built, with for sale condos instead of r ental apartments, they may get their wish. Silvestri has generally preferred building condos over apartments. In fact, Silvestri just restarted construction at Oceanwalk, adding building 18, so obviously the company believes the condo market is on the upswing. *** W aterfront property in N ew Smyrna Beach apparently has turned around. A 5,000-square-foot oceanfront house recently sold for $3 million, the same as the o wner paid for it in 2004. While the owner didnt make a profit on it, there wasnt a loss either. *** In another developing story, the Coraci family has bought back land it sold to Mar yland-based Humphrey C orp. at Willow Run and W illiamson boulevards in Po rt Orange for $1.5 million. Anyone with a computer can look at Google maps and figure out new residential development will head in that direction, so that intersection will be ripe for commercial development. *** C ommercial real estate investors continue to have a strong interest in Volusia. S ome recent deals included N ational Retail Properties of Orlando selling the Wendys properties in New Smyrna B each, South Daytona and W est Ormond Beach to Pa.based American Realty Capital for $3.2 million. Also, ABC Liquors sold its new N ew Smyrna Beach store to P latinum Holdings for $3.18 million. *** On a final note, Brown & Bro wn Inc. continued its march toward becoming a $2 billion company in the second quarter. The Daytona Beach-based insurance agency network and benefits manager posted re venue of $325.8 million in the quarter, up from $290.9 million in the second quarter of 2012. The companys net income was at $52 million, up from $42.5 million last year. The companys growth is getting a boost from the improving national economy with its existing operations adding to the income growth. Add that to its aggressive rate of acquisitions and it is moving closer to becoming the largest insurance seller and manager in the nation. M anaging Editor Cecil G.

Entertainment will W eston-based Florida C ommunity Bank is making the transition from a holding company for the assets of failed banks to one of the states largest banking operations. FCB recently completed its first negotiated acquisition, buying Great Florida B ank of Coral Gables. Based on Great Floridas most r ecent report of outstanding shares of common stock, the deal is valued at about $42.5 million with FCB paying $2.34 for each share. FCB, a subsidiary of Bond Str eet Holdings, was formed in 2009 and used to maintain the assets of failed banks in cooperation with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Great Florida also was in shaky condition, but FCB already was involved in turning it around, FCB President Kent Ellert said in a telephone interview. Based on the pricing, we feel OK about the assets of Great Florida. The combined operations put FCB as the fourth largest bank based in Florida with assets of $4.4 billion and 67 offices along both Florida coasts. Mr. Ellert doesnt expect any of the offices will close. V ery little overlapped between our two operations, he said. FCB is now poised to become a statewide bank, something Florida hasnt had with a state-based bank in several years. It will need to move into the Jacksonville, Panhandle, Tallahassee and Tampa Bay markets to do it. In the news release announcing the deal, Mr. Ellert said, The transaction with Great Florida Bank is truly a game changer for our Company as we have been eager to expand our presence in Miami, Floridas largest metro market. We are a Florida-based, Floridafocused company and the merger with Great Florida B ank adds significant scale to our brand and will result in meaningful synergies that will benefit customers and communities of both institutions. C onsistent with our previously completed eight successful acquisitions, this merger will significantly enhance our Florida footprint and will provide a foundation for us to augment our commercial lending team to further generate organic growth, he said. M. Mehdi Ghomeshi, Pr esident of Great Florida B ank, said in the news r elease, "This merger is a win for our stockholders, customers and banking franchise.

social norm supporting a smoke free environment and support from within academic communities for such policies for campus health and well-being. Ms. Homan has been with DSC for nearly 16 years. When she applied for the grant in 2010, she said, she had a five-year plan, which included getting the information out, conducting surveys, educating students and faculty, and garnering support and backup. S he worked fast. And, she said, she had a lot of help. T his has been really supported by student groups, Ms. Homan said. W ithout them we wouldn t have been succe ssful with all of the surveys. It stands to reason a fitness advocate would be opposed to the use of tobacco products, but Ms. H omans motivator was closer than her vocation to her heart. M y father was 53 when he died of a massive stroke, she said. He was a heavy smoker. Thats the reason I feel so passionate. I dont want this to happen to other families. I had to learn the hard way. Cigarette smoking approximately doubles a persons risk for stroke, and cigarette smokers are two to four times more likely to develop coronary heart disease than nonsmokers, according to the Centers for D isease Control and Prevention. In 2010 when the grant was awarded, 430 colleges in the United States were tobacco free, Ms. Homan said. As of July 8, there are at least 1,182 college campuses nationwide that have gone 100 percent smoke-free, according to the American N on-Smokers Rights Foundation. Of those, 798 have gone entirely tobacco-free, with still more considering their own policies, the ANRF r eported. N early all institutions in the Central Florida region have already adopted tobacco-free campus policies or are considering them, according to DSCs website. Ms. Homan said during the 2012 Cigarette Butt PickUp and Earth Day event, students, student-athletes, staff and members of the V olusia County Health D epartment removed 15,000 butts from the Daytona Beach Campus in just one hour. This year around 9,000 butts were removed from the grounds of the Daytona B each Campus; lesser amounts were picked up at other branch campuses, DSCs website reported. The tobacco-free policy should eliminate the need for counting next year. Ms. Homan said the AHEC has been invaluable to the effort. The grant is helping to offset the cost of the policy, including the purchase of campus signs, and the organization facilitates the smoking cessation classes, which are open to the public, in addition to providing four weeks of nicotine r eplacement therapy to participants. Last fall Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University announced it will implement a tobacco-free policy, also effective Aug. 1. B ethune-Cookman University also prohibits use of tobacco products on campus. W e are trying to coordinate classes with EmbryRiddle and Bethune-Cookman on our campuses monthly so opportunities exist to all students, staff and general public, Ms. H oman said. O ther Florida colleges and universities with 100 percent tobacco-free campuses, according to the ANRF, are Edison State College, F lorida Hospital College of H ealth Sciences, Florida I nternational University, F lorida State College of Jacksonville, Florida State University, Gulf Coast State College, Hillsborough Community College, Miami-Dade C ollege, Nova Southeastern U niversity, South Florida C ommunity College, University of Florida, University of Florida Health Services/ S hands, Seminole State College, University of South F lorida Health and Warner U niversity. The state of Florida has quite a few (tobacco free campuses) compared to other states, Ms. Homan said, and we should be proud Florida is proud. T obacco-free Florida has compiled a list of organizations that offer free or lowcost smoking cessation programs for those seeking help to quit. For information on smoking-cessation classes in the area visit daytonastate.edu/ nobutts. upon cease fire date, but no peace treaty has ever been agreed upon. Now in 2013, 60 years later, there is still only an uneasy truce. The exhibit is small, but educational and will have historical artifacts that give a sense of understanding of the war to all who attend. W ithout glorifying war, it adds to the richness of the existing New Smyrna Museum of History, Mr. McGuire said. All Korean War Veterans of V olusia and Flagler counties will be honored at 2 pm in the park next to the museum at 120 Sams Ave. The ceremony will consist of a w elcome by Mr. McGuire followed by a proclamation from Mayor Adam Barr inger. The Marine Corp. League will present the Colors followed by the National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance. Rev. Jim Cook will deliver the Invocation and Larry Skates, president of the New Smyrna Museum of H istory, will have a few r emarks. Pastor Hur of the Kor ean Baptist Church of D aytona Beach will say a Pr ayer of Reunification and Chuck Husband, president of the KWVA Chapter 189 will dedicate the new exhibit. The special guest speaker will be Jason Davis, Volusia C ounty Council Chair and a G ulf War Veteran, and the closing ceremony will consist of retiring the Colors and a benediction. Mr. McG uire invites all veterans from not only the Korean Wa r, but World War II, Vietnam and the more recent conflicts to attend to support their brothers-in-arms. S outh Korea has risen to be one of the worlds fastest growing economies, ranking 10th on the world stage, according to Mr. McGuire. They also continue to be one of the United States staunchest allies. Ar ound the world, the 22 nations which joined the U nited States under the cooperative banner of the U nited Nations are today celebrating this victory over the forceful spread of communism, explained Mr. McG uire. North Korea, aided by the USSR and Chinas vast military potential, failed physically and philosophically to dominate S outh Korea. North Korea has squandered its r esources in the mythical defense of its philosophy while its people continue to live lives that most of the world finds reprehensible and inexcusable, stated Mr. McG uire. July 27, 2013, will be a day to remember those who died for freedom in Kor ea and to honor those who fought and stopped the advance of communism and suppression of the common people of South Korea.

Peninsula Drive (9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday, W ednesday and Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday. This campaign will run through Aug. 15. On a scorching day in J une, Litsa Taylor ran through the hot, soft sand on the beach. Fatigue, heat and sore muscles urged her to quit. Everyone whos ever been affected by cancer pulled her through the sand and pushed her to the triathlons finish line. I wanted to quit, but I thought Im not a quitter and I thought of the people with cancer who cant run, whove passed or are in a bed, Mrs. Taylor said. Thinking of them gives me that extra push. Mrs. Taylor represents Me Str ong, the rapidly growing non-profit organization initiated in 2011 by four D eLand women. They wanted to do something to help their beloved friend, Linda R yan, who was facing cancer for the third time. They couldnt sit by and sit still. After all, Ms. Ryan never does. S he overcame thyroid cancer in 2002, cervical cancer 2004, and ran a marathon just four weeks before being told the cervical cancer had recurred, showing up in her lymph nodes. Barbara Underhill, K im Martin, Kim Winters and Kathy Guyer were determined to find a way to help. K im Winters called me r ight before my first chemo (treatment), Ms. Ryan said. The group of friends had decided they wanted to do a 5k run benefit to honor Ms. R yan. I didnt want it to be just about lets raise money to fight cancer, Ms. Ryan said. I wanted people to be active. I was in the best shape of my life so I felt strong going into my battle and I feel like if youre in good shape mentally and physically, youre better equipped to conquer anything. The five of them marched forward carrying that message. Many others have fallen into step. In two years, Me Strong has raised $25,000; 60 percent has been given to cancer patients and their families for medications, treatment and diversions, such as dinner out with their families. Pr oceeds have gone to, among others, a cancerstricken mother of twins, a 16 year-old-boy with brain cancer and a woman with metastatic breast cancer. The rest of the funds r aised have been donated to cancer research. That first 5k race in D eLand was on Jan. 28, 2012. It was expected to attract 300 participants. S ocial media, community newspaper coverage and Ms. Ryans open, honest blog about her journey through cancer saw to it the r oster was three times that number. The 5k is Me Str ongs flagship annual fundraiser, and Mrs. Taylor said, in its second year, the r ace drew 1,200 runners, making it the largest 5k r ace ever in Volusia County. In 2012, VP Communications President Vickie P leus and the Me Strong Lindas Run for the Dr eam 5k won a Florida P ublic Relations Association Judges Award at the Orlando Area Chapter I mage Awards program in the very competitive special event category. Mrs. Taylor, who teaches F ashion Marketing at D eLand High School, ran in both 5ks, winning first place in her age division each time. S he said the Me Strong founders contacted her offering to sponsor her in other events as a way to market their organization. So I do events all over F lorida representing Me Str ong, Mrs. Taylor said. The 35-year-old mother of three children displays the Me Strong logo as she participates in triathlons, r aces anything to get exposure, she explained. Aside from displaying the logo, Mrs. Taylor talks to other contestants and attendees at the events about the endeavor and the groups accomplishments. I t s an honor for me to r epresent such an elite group of women, those five women who embody everything I look up to, Mrs. Taylor said. I may not win every race, but its more important for me to be a positive influence for my children, my friends and the community. Mrs. Taylor is an active member of Stetson Baptist Church. Her three children, Carson, 7, Reese, 4, and Caroline, 2, inspire her to lead by example. She wants them to see their mother being physically and spiritually active, eating right, achieving goals and inspiring goal-setting in others. Those ambitions did not go unnoticed by Me Str ongs founding five. B asically, they thought I embodied everything Me Str ong stood for, Mrs. Taylor said. I have an active lifestyle. I work, am active in the community. Im a mom and I try to teach my kids to live a healthy lifestyle. S he said she only started r unning about two years ago, right around the time of the first 5k race, but shes always enjoyed physical activities including biking, spinning and cross-fit, and is a huge supporter of the DeLand YMCA. R unning added a whole new dimension to Mrs. T aylors life and allows her to devote more time to one that was solidly in place before her feet hit the pavement. G od is my number one, my support system, Mrs. T aylor said. When Im r unning I have a lot of time. Thats when I think, pray and clear my head. I can make a lot of decisions and I just kind of feel free. Often, she pushes a double stroller containing her two girls, which provides the added benefit of quality family time. Ms. Ryan considers running a lifesaver. In 2011, she participated in a clinical trial at MD Anderson Cancer Center in H ouston where she underw ent eight rounds of chemotherapy. Each treatment included a nine-hour infusion. Between flights to Houston for treatments she ran for her life. I did two half marathons and three 5ks, Ms. Ryan said. For me, being outside and being active was my way of letting cancer know it would not win. By Mar ch 2012, there was no evidence of disease in her body. The organizations name originated prior to Ms. R yans 2011 diagnosis during a trip she, Mrs. Winters and Mrs. Winters daughter took to Boston. We were doing a power walk in Boston Garden and this woman ran by, Ms. R yan said. She looked so confident and strong and K im looked at me and said, M e strong woman! Sh e s not the only one. Ms. Ryan said Me Strong has given each of the five women something. W e each find purpose, satisfaction and gratification through doing this and giving back to others, and telling my story has been therapeutic for me, she said. Also for her, the effort gave deeper meaning to the concept of friendship. These friends what theyve done to honor me, to help me through my battle, it really defines what friendship should be and is, she said. Honestly, Im thankful for my cancer. So much good has come out of it. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, July 26, 2013 A11Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

CopelandF or Hometown News C ounty music artist Dustin Seymour will perform at a free concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 26, at the Daytona Beach B andshell. Mr. Seymour has been singing since the age of 2 when he would watch his dad and his gospel group The Jeremiah S ingers perform at churches in the Southeast. He remembers running up to the stage and demanding to hold the microphone. He started performing at 7 and began singing professionally at 10. He attended Belmont University in Nashville and fell in love with songwriting. While there, he picked up the guitar and started writing his own music. He has performed with Alan Jackson, Dolly Parton and the O ak Ridge Boys. C ountry music and bluegrass are his first loves, but hes always been drawn to different sounds. From R&B artists to bands like U2, Radiohead and singer-songwriters, even classical music. All of these different styles have molded him into a different kind of country music. F ollowing the path of artists like Ronnie Milsap and Conway Twitty, he has become a performer of what he likes to call Country Soul. Its country music with something extra. After walking away from a terrible car accident with nothing more than a few scratches, his eyes were opened. He knew there was more that he was meant to do, to say ... to sing. Thats what he was able to do with his new EP What Im Made Of. The songs were written with healing and progress in mind. The concert series is made possible by the Daytona Beach C ultural Services Department and promoter Wyatt Davis.

would ever finish the generous portion. Oh, but I did and even left room for homemade tiramisu while my husband finished his meal with bread pudding. The menu even includes hamburgers, hotdogs and torpedoes. Mr. Tufo said tourists checking in late and locals wanting a later bite to eat can come by for a quick meal to dine in or carry out. The personal service extends to the owner himself as Mr. Tufo regularly visits with diners during the meal to make sure all is what they expected. Even when he is in the kitchen, Mr. Tufo has a system to determine if a customer enjoyed their meal. If I see a plate come back and theres still a lot of food on it and no one has asked for a to-go box I go out and ask if there was a problem. I want them to tell me the truth. It wont hurt my feelings, he said. Tu fos opened June 19 and, in that time, he has made new friends, including local hotel managers, but not all of his guests are strangers, many followed him and his staff from his previous restaurant, Cranes R oost in the Crane Lakes community.

Just back from a couple days at beautiful S ebastian Inlet just south of Melbourne. F or me, spending time there is like a visit with an old friend. Almost 40 years ago my wife, Lana, and I began going there to camp on an island to fish and clam for days on end. As time went on, our tent also became occupied by our daughter, Shayla, and son, Landan, both of whom visited that inlet while still toddlers. On this trip, Shayla brought along her 10-yearold daughter, Delayna, and Landan was accompanied by his wife, Sarah, who is carrying our first grandson. Although Sebastian Inlet is still the most remote inlet on Floridas east coast, it has grown some and is now surrounded by a nice state park. Our tent has given way to a motor home since Lana and I are not quite as sturdy as we were back in the s. F ishing at Sebastian is always good and the place is world famous for the snook that sometimes gather there. If you go there and find the jetty fishing platforms lined with anglers, you will know the snook bite is on. That was not the case this time, but we still had fun catching bluefish, small red and black drum, and ladyfish. The Sebastian I nlet Park goes from the beach to the Indian River and it is not unusual to happen upon a real fishing event there. M any years ago, I had the boat on the trailer and was heading home when I noticed the beach was lined with surf fishermen. I had to stop to see what was going on and found each angler had a bucket full of pompano. They were in close and biting like mad on anything you could throw. I quickly joined the fun and caught nearly 20 fat pompano on a silver spoon. Another time I was there alone and, with the fishing slow, I joined other boats anchored in the inlet to just catch some winter sun and while away the day. All of a sudden my rod and every r od in the other four boats bent double and we all landed huge bluefish. Mine was over eight pounds and is still one of the largest I have ever caught. Only one to the customer as they we re obviously just passing through. B ack when the state was about to ban nets, Lana and I decided to take our 50-foot drag net to Sebastian to catch black drum one last time. In an area where we had enjoyed past success, I walked the net in a circle in water up to my armpits. As I headed back to shore it was obvious we had a lot of fish. When the net began to tighten the fish panicked and began to jump high over the net to escape. S nook! We had gathered about 30 snook in our net. Of course, it was then and is now illegal to take snook like that, but it sure was fun. To prepare for my trip to S ebastian Inlet I knew I had to do some work on my little 50-horse Evinrude. It had been running rough and I knew the two carbur etors were probably gummed up. F or years, I have relied on the good folks at N eptune Marine to do the r epairs I cannot (or the ones I am too lazy to do). Gordon and his son, Chad, have kept me and many more running for a lot of y ears. Usually they will offer a few solutions to any problem depending on my budget. Many years ago I needed a used boat and when I told Chad I was willing to pay $2,000 for a 16-foot Aquaforce boat, motor and trailer, his first re sponse was oh, you will get it cheaper than that. He brokered a deal with his dad and I bought the boat for $1,600. You have to admire that kind of honesty. Because of that honesty Gordon and Chad have made that $400 back from me many times over. On this occasion, Chad tore down my carbs and cleaned them and rewired my electric choke to make the Evinrude purr like a kitten a very talented y oung man. Trouble is, now Chad is telling me he is considering leaving the shop to pursue a career in nursing. While that is a worthwhile calling, I hope he changes his mind. His dad Gordon is like myself in that he is getting a bit long in the tooth and nearing r etirement. Chad and hard working Ned would be the obvious choice to keep up the service. A talented and honest boat mechanic is a resource we cant afford to lose. If any of you who trade there agree, stop by and tell Chad we need him and to stay put. N eptune Marine is at 801 N.
