HOLLY HILL, Fla. -- If there is one thing certain from the Headline Surfer Public Candidate Debates for the three seats on the Volusia County Council up for grabs in the Nov. 8 general elections, district 4's Heather Post and Al Smith do not like each other one bit and it showed when they were seated next to each other with the moderator to their left and the video camera pointed at them.

It was an ugly display for the duration -- 30:42 -- every second of it captured on video for the voters of district 4, capped off by an ending that will be remembered as priceless: Smith, with a big grin on his face, extends his right arm for a handshake and all he gets in return from Post is a glare - the kind you would see in divorce proceedings.
