Maitland Milestone: City's building inspector retiring this month after quarter century-plus on the job
MAITLAND, Fla. -- After 25 years and 11 months of service to the City of Maitland, Troy Smith is turning in his flashlight and other tools with his retirement imminent: His official last day as the city’s building inspector is on Aug. 11.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- He was once suspected by a neighboring DeLand family of four of leaving a dripping used condom with blood on it on the welcoming mat of their front porch door as a perverse act of intimidation.
The wife and mom of two little kids discovered it upon returning from an errand -- snagging a pair of sterile gloves to pick it up before it could lead to disaster.
Several Volusia County Sheriff's deputies responded and one of them in turn put on a pair of sterile gloves to pick up the nasty find crumpled within the moms discarded and bunched-up gloves subsequently scooped into an evidence bag to be brought back to headquarters for storage. And though the husband and others in the quiet neighborhood suspected this was the handiwork of one John Casaburro, for years seen as an agitator, deputies closed the case because there was nothing linking the used bloodied condom to any known crime. A VCSO incident report was taken with a statement provided by the wife who saw the used-bloody condom.
