Chief Steve Cole of the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office graduated Friday, April 6th from the National Institute of Corrections Executive Leadership Program. Chief Cole is the Division Chief responsible for the Court and Detention Services Division. You must be invited to attend the class and is limited to 30 jail administrators or Wardens from across the United States. The graduates completed the 32-hour program in Aurora, Colorado at the National Corrections Academy. During the training the graduates discussed topics like institutional culture, managing within a hierarchy, budget management, ethical decision making, and media relations. The graduates were also given the opportunity to enhance their personal skills in areas essential to effective leadership and administration within a correctional institution. The cost of the training, including all travel, hotel and meal costs, was paid by the federal government. “I’m very proud the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office has a graduate of the National Institute of Corrections for the very first time,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “We congratulate Chief Cole on this achievement.”

Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“There I was the black grandson of a slave, the son of a black sharecropper, part of a historic occasion, a symbolic hero to my people. The air was sparkling. The sunlight was warm. The band struck up the national anthem. The flag billowed in the wind. It should have been a glorious moment for me as the stirring words of the national anthem poured from the stands. Perhaps it was, but then again perhaps the anthem could be called the theme song for a drama called The Noble Experiment. Today as I look back on that opening game of my first world series, I must tell you that it was Mr. Rickey’s drama and that I was only a principal actor. As I write this twenty years later, I cannot stand and sing the anthem. I cannot salute the flag; I know that I am a black man in a white world. In 1972, in 1947, at my birth in 1919, I know that I never had it made”

–Jackie Robinson, from his memoir, “I Never Had It Made.”

The Online auction to benefit the G.W. Carver Center in Bunnell is now open. Art Work, Local Experiences, Restaurant Gift Cards, Baskets, FCYC Summer Camp Registration & Trip Specials, Window Cleaning, Kayaking Tour, Furniture, World Wide Time Share, Camping Rentals, and the list goes on and on. The purpose of the auction is to raise money to go back into the development of the Carver Center. The Flagler County School Board and Flagler County Government have both owned and managed the facility over the years. Due to budgetary constraints it appeared it would be necessary to close the facility in 2010. A coalition was born to save the Gym and restore it as a community center. Our foundation was created to serve this facility with grant funding and equipment/supply needs. In order to participate in this auction you must register for a bidder account here. On the last day of the auction if a bidder submits a bid in the last 3 minutes before auction closes that item will extend for another 3 minutes and that process will repeat for up to a half hour the official close. Go bid here. If you have any questions please contact us via email at auction@carverfoundation.org
