The trial of Joseph Bova continues for its fifth day, including two days of jury selection earlier in the week. The state rested Thursday. The defense began to put on its case. Bova himself is expected to testify today.  The trial is not scheduled to end until at least Monday. It takes place 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.

The 2019 Nobel Prize in Literature for both 2018 and 2019 are announced at 7 a.m. eastern time at the earliest (1 p.m. in Stockholm). The Nobel Prize in Literature is awarded by The Swedish Academy, Stockholm. Prizes are awarded for both years because last year the Academy, embroiled in scandal, declined to make an award. The scandal would have been an adequate, if not quite Nobel-worthy, novel. Author Jean-Claude Arnault, who was married to Academy Board Member Katarina Frostenson, was accused by some 18 women of sexual misconduct. Sara Danius, who chaired the academy, did little against Arnault. Three academy members resigned in protest over her inaction. Danius subsequently resigned, as did Frostenson. Two seats had been vacant for reasons dating back to the Rushdie affair. So seven of the academy’s 18 seats were vacant. (Members are elected for life.) The scandal caused the academy to delay its 2018 prize until this year. All seats have been filled. Danius was replaced by Mats Malm.

The fall presentation of the L. Gale Lemerand Entrepreneurial Speaker Series features Suneera Madhani, CEO and founder of Fattmerchant. The series, hosted by the Small Business Development Center and Daytona State, features advice and inspiration from some of the nation’s leading business owners. The event, which is free and open to the public, runs from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Hosseini Center, Daytona State College campus, 1200 W International Speedway Blvd, Daytona Beach. Madhani graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in finance in 2009 and began working as a sales agent for a payment processor, learning the ins and outs of the credit card industry. Realizing business owners were trying to navigate an industry full of gimmicks, hidden fees and no transparency, Madhani decided to tackle the problem with a different approach and founded Fattmerchant in 2014. In so doing, she also took control of her own future. Just five years later, Fattmerchant has progressed from a start-up company to processing over $5 billion in payments for business owners. It has been called the “Netflix of credit card processing” and evolved into an industry giant, winning awards for its business model and tech platform. Fattmerchant earned a spot on Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2018 Top Company Culture list, and the 2019 Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America list. In August, it was ranked in the top four percent of the fastest growing private companies in the United States by Inc. Magazine. During the event, the winners of the L. Gale Lemerand Entrepreneurial Speaker Series Scholarship will also be announced. Up to three promising Daytona State College, DSC Adult Education, or Volusia and Flagler County high school students who are planning to attend DSC and are interested in entrepreneurship will be awarded the $1,000 scholarships.

American Association of University Women (AAUW) Flagler hosts its monthly General Meeting on at 11 a.m., in the main dining room of Pine Lakes Country Club, 400 Pine Lakes Pkwy., N., Palm Coast.

AAUW Flagler hosts a joint meeting with Joanna Bryant Caplette, U.S. Census Bureau liaison, the League of Women Voters, and Donald O’Brien, Jr, Chair of Flagler County Complete Count Committee, to discuss the importance of getting a full and accurate count for the 2020 Census.

Why is it important for Flagler and Florida to get counted? With almost $700 billion of taxpayer dollars scheduled for disbursement among the states, it is vital for Florida and Flagler to make sure neither are under-counted. These billions fund road projects, pay for colleges, support local fire departments and finance Medicaid. Historically, Florida has received fewer federal dollars than any other state. For 2020, it’s imperative for Florida and Flagler to get counted.

Lunch is available for $18 per person. For reservations and menu options, please contact Sally Smeaton by email: shsmeaton@gmail.com by October 9, 2019.
