The Flagler Sportfishing Club awarded its annual winners of the Year Long Fishing Tournament: Male Angler of the Year for 2018 is Captain Bruce Bachman and The Lady Angler of the Year for 2018 is Karen Dougherty (above). Both anglers accumulated the most points at the end of the year for the 23 species of fish that the club tracks. All fish are turned into designated weigh stations throughout the year and each month the data is gathered and totaled to track the progress. This year the club awarded 19 species winners with club jackets, shirts or gift certificates (winners choice). The purpose of the Year Long Tournament is to allow club members the opportunity to be acknowledged for their fishing skills and the respect of the club members for their accomplishments. It also determines the Lady Angler of the Year and Male Angler of the Year. The tournament ran from January 1, 2018 until December 31, 2018. The two winners received their choice of a “Columbia” style shirt, club jacket, or club sponsor gift certificate. This year there were over 108 anglers participate in the tournament with 588 fish turned officially. “This year, we had more new anglers competing in the Year Long Tournament which shows how the sport of fishing is expanding within the club and throughout the community,” said Club President Captain Chuck Gleichman.

Today’s Briefing: Quick Links

“The old peddler woman on the bench and the overalled men in the stern had seen enough husbands meeting their wives and children after a long absence to know how such people ought to behave. The most volatile races, such as the Italians, often danced for joy, whirled each other around, pirouetted in an ecstasy: Swedes sometimes just looked at each other, breathing through open mouths like a panting dog; Jews wept, jabbered, almost put each other’s eyes out with the recklessness of their darting gestures; Poles roared and gripped each other at arm’s length as though they meant to tear a handful of flesh; and after one pecking kiss, the English might be seen gravitating toward, but never achieving an embrace.”

–From Henry Roth’s “Call It Sleep” (1934).

Flagler Beach Is Open For Business: A1A Construction Update:

FlaglerLive is providing weekly updates to year-long construction on and near State Road A1A in Flagler Beach as the Florida Department of Transportation rebuilds a 1.5-mile segment from South 9th Street to South 22nd Street, and builds a sea wall at the north end of town. These updates are provided through DOT or local officials. If you have any relevant information or images, you’re welcome to email them to the editor here.

Segment 2 (South 22nd Street to South 9th Street):

The contractor has begun installing the new water main along the west side of S.R. A1A. The work began at the south end of the project and is moving north. Sidewalk has been removed to accommodate the water main installation. Temporary pedestrian walkways have been created, and pedestrians are asked to use the walkways for safety.

Construction activities will continue during daylight hours Monday through Saturday. Please obey the posted speed limit through the work area and detour, and be alert to pedestrians and bicyclists.

Segment 3 (North 18th Street to Osprey Drive) Project Update:

The contractor has drilled and set reinforcing fiberglass cages in more than two dozen shafts to create the buried seawall. Work is continuing northward to clear and place additional sand within the project corridor.

Construction activities will continue during daylight hours Monday through Saturday. The contractor is requesting that spectators stay off the shoulders and out of the work zone for safety. Drivers need to obey the 25-mph speed limit and there is no parking on the shoulder.

Caution! Flagler Beach police and and Sherriff’s deputies are actively monitoring speed and writing tickets. “I got a warning on north section of A1A before construction actually began so I keep to the 25 limit, but still getting tailgated by cars wanting to go faster,” a reader tells us.

Announcements:

Frieda Zamba Swimming Pool is now Palm Coast Aquatics Center? Not quite: The City pool facility is now called the Palm Coast Aquatics Center. Just to clarify, the pool itself will retain its dedicated name of Frieda Zamba Swimming Pool. Since the facility is much more than a pool – with fitness classes, special events, classroom for rentals and more aquatics programming than ever – it was important to find an overall facility name that better captured what is offered there. The new name more closely matches other Parks & Recreation facilities: Palm Coast Community Center, Palm Coast Tennis Center, and Palm Harbor Golf Club. “As we continue to offer more activities and training outside of the pool, we are more than just a swimming pool,” said James Hirst, Aquatics Supervisor of Parks & Recreation. “Frieda Zamba Swimming Pool is not going away; rather, it is becoming part of the overall Palm Coast Aquatics Center and everything it encompasses.” The Palm Coast Aquatics Center will open for the season on Monday, April 1, and registration is now open for Aqua Zumba, Water Aerobics, a new class called Fitness on the Water, swim lessons and much more. The municipal pool, which is heated, will introduce new hours this year. It will be open 8 a.m. to noon and then 3 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday from April 1 through Memorial Day Weekend, when it will be open seven days a week for the summer. For a complete list of pool hours and fees, please visit www.palmcoastgov.com/pool. The Palm Coast Aquatics Center is located at 339 Parkview Drive, Palm Coast. At the pool, there are three pavilions on the pool deck currently available for reservation, and the entire facility can be rented for birthday parties and other after-hours events. More information can be found at www.palmcoastgov.com/pool. Daily admission is $4 for adults; $3 for seniors (65 and older) and youth (ages 2-17); and free for children under 2. Monthly, seasonal and quarterly passes are available for families, limited families (two people in the same household) and individuals. The full schedule of activities, including swim lessons, for both spring and summer seasons can be found at www.parksandrec.fun/aquatics. For more information, call the pool at 386-986-4741. The Parks & Recreation Activity Guide is available online at www.palmcoastgov.com/recreation.

Flagler Executive Airport wins regional FAA Safety Award: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Southern Region Airports Division has named Flagler Executive Airport the winner of the 2018 General Aviation Airport Safety Award. The award recognizes Flagler Executive Airport specifically for the Runway 11-29 Relocation and Extension Project, an accomplishment the FAA Airports Division selection committee felt clearly and significantly enhanced airport safety. “This was the single largest project undertaken since the airport was originally constructed in 1942,” said Airport Director Roy Sieger. “This special recognition is quite an honor as the FAA Southern Region Airports Division oversees airport development, certification and safety for all of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina, Puerto Rica and the U.S. Virgin Islands.” The Runway 11-29 Project began in February 2017 and closed in January of 2018, relocating the runway 400 feet to the south, 800 feet to the east, and lengthening it by 501 feet to the east. These changes increased the size of runway safety areas, increased the separation between the runway and parallel taxiway, and improved safety grading and intersection safety.

Residents reminded Rebuild Florida deadline is March 29: The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity reminds residents the application deadline, March 29, for its “Rebuild Florida” is fast approaching. To date, 214 Flagler County residents have registered for assistance. The department established the program in September 2018 to provide $616 million to help families repair or rebuild homes significantly damaged by Hurricane Irma – including communities within Flagler County. “I understand the registration process only takes between 15 and 30 minutes, so it is worthwhile to take the time to do it,” said Emergency Management Chief Jonathan Lord. “We want to encourage everyone who is looking for assistance throughout Flagler County to review the requirements and apply.” The funds are available through the Department of Economic Opportunity’s Rebuild Florida initiative, which will “repair and rebuild homes for low-income families, construct additional affordable housing units, assist businesses in disaster recovery and update local infrastructure to better withstand future storms.” Rebuild Florida is a partnership of DEO and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Though restrictive, some money will be made available to mobile and manufactured homes less than 5 years old and with repair costs up to $5,000. Replacement mobile homes may be made available to those not meeting the initial criteria. For more information, go to www.rebuildflorida.gov, or call 844-833-1010. Eligible Florida residents now have until March 29 to register for the Rebuild Florida Housing Repair and Replacement Program.

Flagler Executive Airport will receive a plaque from the FAA commemorating this award during the 2019 Southern Region Airports Conference, which takes place in Atlanta, GA in April.

  1. tom mutschler says:

    FDOT plans poorly again. The resurfacing of I-95 in Flagler County is badly needed but to schedule it while the “roundabout” on US#1 is under construction is a recipe for disaster. With lane closings on both roads possibly going on at the same time where do all the cars go in the event of total road closing s due to accidents or , God forbid , a hurricane evacuation mess as we saw a couple of years ago ???
