“I looked across the broken groupings and saw a large glossy man with straw-coloured hair and a red face, whose shirt and shoes and complexion seemed all to have received a coat of the same expensive varnish.”

The trial of Joseph Bova is scheduled to begin with jury selection at 8:30 a.m. before Circuit Judge Terence Perkins in Courtroom 401, Flagler County Courthouse, 1769 E Moody Blvd, Building #1. Bova is 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. In July, the court determined trial should go ahead. The trial is expected to take several days. Bova’s courtroom behavior has been unpredictable: he has previously threatened the life of a judge, and refused to show up at his last hearing on Sept. 6, when the trial date was set.

County Commissioner Joe Mullins speaks to the Hammock Community Association on growth management in the Hammock at 5:30 p.m. at the Hammock Community Center, 79 Mala Compra Road, Palm Coast, in the wake of his vote approving the controversial Beachwalk development on Malacompra Road. The meeting is the result of the association’s Joy Ellis writing various commissioners. She wrote in her invitation email: “Please understand, the citizens who opposed Beachwalk are not opposed to growth. Our goal is responsible growth which maintains the character of The Hammock and the value of our property. While Beachwalk has been decided, other Hammock properties are for sale and may offer similar challenges. Some, like Hammock Harbour, a boat warehouse, are already moving through the system. I sent a brief thank you email to Commissioners Hansen and Ericksen for voting to deny Beachwalk. I also sent a question to all commissioners who voted for Beachwalk (Commissioners Mullins, Sullivan and O’Brien) so I would understand why they voted as they did. I received replies from Commissioner Mullins and Sullivan. Mullins saying other worse developers were waiting. Sullivan saying that since there were condos, there must not be a density issue.” Mullins told Ellis he had a strategy for growth management, and would present his issues at the meeting.
