Tuesday Briefing: Donating to Emergency Responders, Campaign Event Focuses on Opioids, School Board Procedures

| May 22, 2018

Beachfront grille donations

Jamie Bourdeau, owner of Beach Front Grille in Flagler Beach, announced that residents raised $3,000 at the First Annual Irish Open Golf Outing last weekend, for for Flagler County Emergency Services and the Flagler Beach Police Department. The two organizations will split the funds equally. Though the fundraising was organized around a golf outing, not one golf ball was hit. A thunderstorm rolled in just as players were about to tee off. That didn’t discourage the golfers from donating to a good cause, and the group still raised the $3,000 from the players fees, sponsorships and raffles. Sponsors included Beach Front Grille, MediQuick, and the ICU nurses at Florida Hospital Flagler. The checks were presented to Don Petito, Flagler County Fire Chief, and Flagler Beach Police Chief Matt Doughney (above) on May 10 at Beach Front Grille. ‘These funds are going to be used for some updated raid gear for our police officers,’ said Chief Doughney. ‘What we have now is antiquated and hot, and with summer right around the corner, we are looking forward to utilizing some more modern weather gear.’ Petito plans to use their donated funds for ballistic vests to assist in rescuing victims of active assailant.

Today’s Briefing: Quick Links

“Everything in your eyes is diminished and uglified…. You always focus on the faults, on what can be satirized…. To see only the ugliness, that is what people do when they do not love…. You are not aware that when you paint only cruelly, underlining only faults or weaknesses, you are the loser.”

–Anaïs Nin, from “The Dairy of Anais Nin,” referring to Gore Vidal.

In Flagler and Palm Coast:

Note: all government meetings noticed below are free and open to the public unless otherwise indicated. Many can be heard or seen live through each agency’s website.

The Sheriff’s daily incident reports and jail bookings are posted here.

The Flagler County School Board holds a workshop at 9 a.m. in Conference Room 3 on the third floor of the Government Services Building in Bunnell, to discuss board procedures.

A ribbon-cutting is scheduled for 4 p.m. for Teens in Flight at its new facility at 275 Old Moody Boulevard, near the fire station on the grounds of the Flagler County Airport. Teens in Flight started operations in 2006.

An “Opioid Task Force” holds its initial meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn at 2 p.m. The task force includes Joe Mullins, a candidate for the county commission who appears to be using the event in conjunction with his campaign, Pastor Charles Silano of Grace Tabernacle Ministries International, Michael Feldbauer, president of the Flagler County Drug Court Foundation, and other county business leaders and officials. Sheriff Rick Staly is listed among the participants but he will, in fact, not be in attendance. “While Sheriff Staly supports any community efforts to reduce opioid addiction and the opioid epidemic affecting Flagler County, he will not be participating in anything that would imply endorsement of any local, state or federal candidates,” his office said in a statement. Mullins scheduled another event that was eventually cancelled as some participants did not want to be associated with his campaigning.
