“The first white hairs lead to the latest passions, all the more violent because they are astride of vanishing powers and dawning weakness. The age of forty is the age of folly,—an age when man wants to be loved for himself; whereas at twenty-five life is so full that he has no wants. At twenty-five he overflows with vigor and wastes it with impunity, but at forty he learns that to use it in that way is to abuse it.”
–Balzac, from “The Government Clerks” (“Les employes,” 1838).

In Court: Circuit Judge Terence Perkins sentences Dante Mobley, a sex offender found guilty of statutory rape and sentenced in 2014 to five years in prison followed by 10 years’ sex-offender probation. He served his sentence, with credit for time served and 15 percent early release for good behavior, but was re-arrested on April 12 on a probation violation. Mobley, 35, a resident of 611 South Bacher Street in Bunnell, generated a series of violations, including losing his $900 court-issued tracking bracelet, a failure to report, and living within 1,000 feet of a place where children gather. Mobley has been at the county jail since his re-arrest. The sentencing is at 1:30 p.m. in Courtroom 401.

Senior energy program money available for air conditioning: Flagler County has a program available for qualified residents who need help with household air conditioning. “The Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program is designed to help low income households who have at least one member over the age of 60, and who is experiencing a cooling emergency,” said Joe Mayer, director of Community Services. Eligible households may receive one benefit for up to $600 for the cooling season. The money is to make payments to utility companies, to make repairs to equipment like air conditioners, or to otherwise resolve a home cooling crisis. A home cooling crisis exists when one or more of the following conditions apply: the household’s home cooling energy source has been cut off; a household has been notified that its energy source will be cut off; a household has been given notice that their energy bills are past due; or, a household has other problems with a lack of cooling in the home. To receive the assistance, proper documentation including gross income, family size and other factors determine program eligibility. For more information, contact Flagler County Senior Services at 386-586-2324, extension 3621.
