NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- When it comes to news that matters most to New Smyrna Beach, nobody delivers it like Headline Surfer, whether it's plans for a traffic light at the intersection of State Road 44 and Sugar Mill or any variety of in-depth reporting on what's happening at City Hall. It's nice to see the Daytona Beach News-Journal has a story this morning on the traffic light.
But there are a few other stories, the Daytona print daily may need to play catch up on that we're publishing this morning: Melissa Ignasiak Smith, the firefighter who successfully sued the city for wrongful termination in federal court, is back to work, even though New Smyrna Beach's top brass is unhappy about it;
Headline Surfer has learned that the Port Orange woman who was killed in the crash on the South Causeway after drinking at the New Smyrna Beach CRA-funded Cinco de Mayo street festival, had a blood alcohol content nearly three times the legal limit while behind the wheel as well as cocaine in her system, according to the medical examiner's office.
And Headlne Seurfer has the excluysive interview with rhe recently "retired" Daytona Beach police sergeant held up for scorn by Chief of Police Michsel Chitwood over nude photos.
