In Court: A hearing is scheduled for a possible plea by Sean Stern, the ex-Professional Sports Pathways Academy in Palm Coast coach arrested in October 2016 on molestation charges. He initially faced two counts of molesting children ages 12 to 16. Three counts were added on Oct. 25, 2017. The counts cite three different children, with incidents in which Stern is alleged to have touched them and or forced or enticed them to touch him. The three additional counts refer to incidents alleged to have taken place before or after school in the academy’s parking lot, which would have been at the old Palm Harbor shopping center (the academy is defunct), in a back room during school, and at Stern’s apartment in Flagler Beach. Each count is a second-degree felony. He has been held at the county jail on $800,000 bond. The hearing is scheduled for 9L:30 a.m. before Circuit Judge Dennis Craig in Courtroom 401 at the Flagler County courthouse.
In Court: Jonathan Canales, 30, accused of shooting his wife in the neck in their Mondex home and denying her medical attention in 2014, is scheduled for a pre-trial on an aggravated battery with a firearm charge (downgraded from attempted murder) before Circuit Judge Dennis Craig in Courtroom 401 at the Flagler County courthouse at 1:30 p.m. The case has long been delayed as Canales had previously been determined to be incompetent to stand trial.

Twenty-four Palm Coast residents graduated this month from the Palm Coast Citizen’s Academy, a comprehensive program designed to educate interested residents about the operation and workings of their City government. The graduating class – the 42nd in the program’s history – spent five weeks learning about City departments and visiting City Hall, main Fire Station 25, and Water Treatment Plant No. 3. The class also attended a Palm Coast City Council meeting together. City Manager Jim Landon kicked off the Citizen’s Academy with an opening session titled, “Governing the City,” providing background on Palm Coast’s incorporation, City Charter, the Council-Manager form of government, and overall information about the City. Participants in the Citizen’s Academy received an overview on every City department and met City Council members, department directors and many other City employees. Mayor Milissa Holland did a presentation on development projects – both public and private – currently under way in Palm Coast. This session’s graduates were Joseph Benincasa, Martha Butler, Katherine Curtis, Danny Danforth, Sharon Danforth, Lisa D’Andrea, Virginia Elgin, Gertrude Hannah, Bertha Harrison, Ryan Kendall, Emily Kirshaw, William Mania, Cindi Marcuccio, Mike Marcuccio, Tina Mongiardo, Becky Osgood, Tom Osgood, Ketia Silveira, James Smeaton, Sally Smeaton, Betty Wiersma, Dale Wiersma, Debby Winans and Mike Winans.
