911 Communications Specialist Candice Cole is the Flagler County Sheriff’s January employee of the month and recipient of a life saving award for her role in walking a caller though a CPR situation even as she was coordinating the response of responders. “Due to Candice’s ability to think quickly and effectively multi-task, she was able to keep the caller calm, dispatch responding units, and administer CPR instructions that ended up saving the patient’s life,” the sheriff’s office says. She appears here with Family Kia Vice President Carl Davis and President Richard Stoff, and Sheriff Rick Staly. Family Kia makes a $250 donation in the name of each employee of the month, to the Flagler Sheriff’s Employee Assistance Trust. The February employee of the month was deputy Adam Gossett, and the March employee of the month was Adam Barkoskie. See the full sheriff’s release listing all winners at the quarterly award ceremony here.

“To be trapped in the boarding area of a smallish airport in the upper Midwest is, as often as not, to be subjected to that bestial din of fricatives, gutturals, plosives and shrieks of hysterical alarm that constitutes political discussion on Fox News, pouring incessantly from those obnoxious pendulous ceiling televisions. And unless one fancies running the T.S.A.’s gantlet of gropers again, there’s no escape. The experience is especially nasty if one’s wait coincides with the prime-time shows hosted by those two almost indistinguishable fellows with the suety faces, bouffant coiffures and nerve-racking mezzo-castrato voices.”

–From David Bentley Hart’s “Can We Please Relax About ‘Socialism’?” in The New York Times, April 27, 2019.

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

In court: A status hearing is scheduled at 8:30 a.m. before Circuit Judge Terence Perkins in the case of Victoria Acierno, the Flagler County woman who drove her Pontiac Grand Prix through a brick wall at Indian Trails K-8 in Palm Coast on Jan. 25, 2001. She was suicidal at the time, but reached 55 mph before impact. She was charged with 28 counts of attempted second degree murder, without executing, but has been held at a psychiatric facility ever since, not competent to stand trial.

In Court: A hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. before Circuit Judge Terence Perkins, in Courtroom 401, in the case of Joseph Bova II, the man accused of murdering store clerk Zuheili Rosado in 2013 at the Mobil convenience store on State Road 100 in February 2013. Bova has been at a psychiatric facility for treatment, judged incompetent to stand trial. In February 2019, the administrator of the facility notified the court that Bova “no longer meets the criteria for continued commitment,” suggesting he is ready for trial.

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.

Last Updated: April 29

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

Installation of a new water main, as well as a new sewer line, is in progress between South 19th Street and South 18th Street. This work is expected to continue over the next few weeks. South of South 19th Street, installation of the French drain system is continuing.

This type of drainage system will collect stormwater into large gravel-filled, underground vaults set into what will be a new raised median. The vaults will be able to store water during heavy rains, which will improve the flooding that occurs to prevent erosion and undermining of the roadway. The water collected will percolate through the vaults into the aquifer. The roadway will be reconstructed at the appropriate slope to collect water at the median.

Pedestrian walkways are open. Pedestrians and bicyclists are asked to be alert to construction equipment and use caution. On South Central Avenue, the project team has applied reflective tape to stop signs to help increase visibility of the signs, and additional enforcement will be conducted by the Florida Highway Patrol.

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

Residents can now see all phases of the secant wall process on this segment. At the very north end, the contractor is almost finished bringing in sand and preparing the dune for the drilling process. On the very south end, the concrete cap of the wall has been poured. In the middle of the project, workers are drilling the concrete piles and setting the fiberglass cages.

Once the wall is constructed and the cap has been poured throughout the length of the project, the contractor will shape the dune to the specified slope, place sand on top of the wall, and plant new vegetation.

A short presentation on how the wall is constructed has been added to our project webpage and can be seen below:

Recently, DOT received a few questions from residents that DOT wants to answer:

1. Why do some properties have the black silt fencing and others do not?

The silt fencing is an erosion control requirement to prevent dirt and debris from leaving our work area and being deposited into waterways or onto private property. In some areas, the property to the west of our work area slopes up away from the work area, so erosion control is not required.

construction a1a2. Will the contractor repair areas on my side of the sidewalk that have been disturbed?

Residents and property owners can get a general idea of where the department’s right of way ends by looking at the placement of the power poles, as well as stakes that have been placed along the project. In some areas, the back edge of the new sidewalk will be slightly farther to the west. For the most part, the back of the new sidewalk will be very close to, or right at, the right of way line.

This project calls for all of the work to be performed within the Florida Department of Transportation right of way. If, however, the work disturbs or damages private property outside of the right of way, the contractor is responsible to make repairs once the work is finished.

Please note that all restoration of conditions within the department’s right of way, including landscaping, hardscaping and driveways, is dictated by the construction plans and existing permits.

3. When will the sidewalk be replaced?

The contractor has begun installing the new sidewalk to the south of 19th Street. As the new water main is installed, there are several types of testing that need to be performed on the new line, and the work needs to be accepted by the City of Flagler Beach before the new sidewalk can be placed. The water main installation is expected to continue for the next several months.

Pedestrians are asked to stay within the temporary pedestrian walkways for safety. Residents and visitors also are reminded that all of the dune walkovers are closed, and removing any signage or barricades to access a walkover is unsafe and unlawful.

Caution! Flagler Beach police and and Sheriff’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.

U.S. 1 and Old Dixie Highway Roundabout Construction Updates:

FlaglerLive is providing weekly updates to the planned 15-month, $4.1 million construction of a roundabout at U.S. 1 and Old Dixie Highway. The project started in late January and is scheduled for completion by spring 2020.

The Florida Department of Transportation will be closing Old Dixie Highway and C.R. 325 at U.S. 1 on Monday night, March 4, from about 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. The closure is needed to allow the contractor to make improvements to the crossover at the temporary intersection. U.S. 1 will remain open in both directions.

Announcements/Press Releases:

As she has in all but one election going back to the 1990s, Bunnell Mayor Catherine Robinson has been re-elected without opposition for another three-year term. (© FlaglerLive)Bunnell’s State of the City: On Monday, April 22, Mayor Catherine D. Robinson provided the annual State of the City. Citizens were invited to share a light meal, which was purchased from a local restaurant, with the City Commission and City staff prior to the start of the meeting. Before even getting into the actual State of the City address, the City swore in two new Bunnell Police Officers- Officer Jake Sanders and Officer William Roberts. In 2018, the City of Bunnell experienced a wide variety of challenges. It continued to deal with the after effects of both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Michael which occurred in 2016 and 2017, but within 12 months of each other. It went through the difficult and heartbreaking decision to transfer its Volunteer Fire Department to the County. For almost six months, the City was under leadership of an Acting City Manager. Commission John Sowell vacated his seat that he won in 2017, leaving a seat open and requiring the need to set a Special Election to fill the vacancy. No matter the challenge though, the City and Staff carried on and continued to provide superior services and customer service to its citizens, businesses and stakeholders. One of the opening slides provided a quote by Jonathan Lockwood Huie- “Winners Dream Big Dreams.” Over the last year, and particularly in the last quarter of 2018, the City certainly started dreaming big. Even more so, it took great steps to act on those dreams. The City went after and was awarded several grants to improve its infrastructure. Throughout 2018, it managed $2,092,593.10 in grants and federal aid dollars. In October, the Commission hired Dr. Alvin Jackson, a dynamic leader with endless energy, ideas, and ways to make Bunnell “The Best ‘Little’ City in the Nation.” The City hosted, co-sponsored and participated in several events through the year, even facing the difficult task of rescheduling on a day’s notice its biggest event Christmas In Bunnell due to several days of severe storms. It also held its first ever Commission Advance which shared bountiful information about the City to all who attended and allowed the Commission to set their Strategic Objectives for the coming years. Throughout the presentation it was clear. The Commission is prepared to implement the plans crafted by Bunnell for Bunnell, so we can keep dreaming big and moving forward.

City of Palm Coast earns state award for procurement practices: The City of Palm Coast Budget & Procurement Office has been awarded the Florida Association of Public Procurement Officials (FAPPO) Award of Excellence in Public Procurement for 2019. The City is one of only 18 agencies in the state to earn the award, and this is Palm Coast’s first time to receive it. Budget & Procurement, which is part of the Finance Department, is responsible for overseeing a decentralized purchasing process that ensures competitive bidding in accordance with the City’s purchasing policy, state statute and best practices. In coordination with all City departments, staff manages all formal solicitations, prepares and executes contracts, and oversees the vendor registration process. The City was judged on innovation, professionalism, e-procurement, productivity, and leadership attributes of the procurement function, which are also best practices in the profession. Process improvement is also a consideration. The Budget & Procurement Office has made a number of changes to improve efficiency and customer service both internally and externally over the past few years. The changes, which include transitioning to a fully electronic bidding system and an electronic contracting process, both significantly improved the turn-around time for the City’s contracts and purchase orders. By improving the processes, it also made it possible to maintain the same staffing levels even as the City and demand for procurement services has grown. Greater efficiency saves tax dollars. “I am extremely proud of my team,” said Lina Williams, Budget & Procurement Manager at the City of Palm Coast. “I believe this recognition shows that everyone’s hard work in streamlining and improving the procurement processes for the City has paid off.

In Florida and in State Government:

Note: Some proceedings below can be followed live on the Florida Channel. Most legislative proceedings can be followed through the Senate or House websites.

AMENDMENT 4 AT ISSUE: The Senate will take up numerous issues, including a closely watched proposal (SB 7086), sponsored by Sen. Keith Perry, R-Gainesville, that would carry out a constitutional amendment on restoring felons’ voting rights. The amendment, known as Amendment 4, passed in November and was designed to restore voting rights for felons who have fulfilled terms of their sentences. But the issue has been controversial throughout this year’s legislative session as lawmakers try to agree on a bill to carry out details of the amendment. Among the key issues has been determining whether felons should have to pay restitution and other costs before they can have their rights restored. (Tuesday, 10 a.m., Senate chamber, the Capitol.)

HOUSE HOLDS FLOOR SESSION: The House is scheduled to hold a floor session. (Tuesday, 10:30 a.m., House chamber, the Capitol.)

The hearing is before Circuit Judge Terence Perkins in Courtroom 401 at the Flagler County courthouse. Perkins has reserved one hour for the hearing. The hearing had originally been scheduled for early April. McDevitt's lawyer asked for it to be rescheduled because of an emergency family issue (regarding the lawyer's family). It was again postponed to May 17. McDevitt has been at the Flagler County jail since April 4, awaiting the proceeding. He is normally incarcerated at Taylor prison in Perry, in Florida's Big Bend area. See details here.
