A handful of residents that en-US oppose the special assessments are trying en-US to reverse the outcome of Novembers en-US election through a petition.en-US David Morris, one of the petition orgaen-US-en-US nizers, said the issue isnt that the Petition en-US Committee doesnt want the infrastrucen-US -en-US ture repairs done in the city, but rather en-US they want special assessments to be voted en-US on by the public versus the City Council.en-US Right now, a simple majority of three en-US council members of 110,000 residents can en-US decide who is going to pay for [infrastrucen-US -en-US ture repairs], Mr. Morris said.en-US And the City Council did just that in en-US July 2017 when Councilmen Santiago, en-US Brian Anderson and Tres Holton en-US approved a stormwater fee program that en-US increased taxes on the average-size home en-US by $177 per year.en-US A lot of people thought it was a one-en-US time tax, said Thomas Guame, an orgaen-US -en-US nizer for the Petition Committee and canen-US -en-US didate seeking to run for Council Seat 4. en-US They didnt know it goes on for 15 years.en-US Now, the petitioners are seeking to en-US repeal that section of the Palm Bay City en-US Charter that applies to special assessen-US -en-US ments and return it to the way it was en-US before the 2016 election. The new lanen-US -en-US guage would require that before the city en-US may levy any special assessments involven-US -en-US ing more than 50 property owners or en-US involving expenditures greater than en-US $25,000, the proposed assessment must en-US be approved by a majority vote of the en-US affected property owners who return a en-US ballot.en-US Councilman Anderson said the City en-US Council was left with very few options en-US considering the magnitude of the citys en-US infrastructure problems, which amount en-US to decades worth of repairs and more en-US than $40 million. en-US I support the citizens right to the petien-US -en-US tion process, Mr. Anderson said. This en-US program, in my opinion, will give us the en-US ability to repair and catch up on our outen-US-en-US dated infrastructure issues.en-US Councilman Santiago agreed. We have en-US a long-term strategic plan to pay for these en-US improvements using dedicated funds that en-US can only be used for their intended puren-US -en-US pose and cannot be redirected by future en-US city leadership, he said. Special assessen-US -en-US ments are the key to the success of that en-US plan.en-US In two months, the Petition Committee en-US has acquired more than half of the signaen-US -en-US tures it needs. The city requires about en-US 7,200 signatures, but Mr. Guame said the en-US Petition Committee is shooting for 10,000 en-US signatures just to be on the safe side. en-US If enough signatures are obtained, the en-US group will submit the paperwork to the en-US city clerk, who will forward it on to the en-US Supervisor of Elections for verification en-US that those who have signed are taxpayers en-US of the city. The cost for verification is 10 en-US cents per signature, which will be paid for en-US by the Petition Committee.en-US About a dozen petitioners gathered en-US March 31 at the Bayside Lakes Clubhouse en-US on Bramblewood Circle to solicit signaen-US -en-US tures. They said theyll be back out there en-US the morning of Saturday, April 14, and en-US also plan to have a booth at the First Frien-US-en-US day by the Bay events on Friday, April 6 en-US and Friday, May 4, at Celebration Square, en-US 4600 Dixie Highway.en-US Wed like to get it on the November en-US ballot, Mr. Guame said.en-US The Petition Committee has a Faceen-US-en-US book group page that can be found by visen-US -en-US iting en-US By Amy Lyonen-USFor Hometown News en-USZuercher.en-US The new Fitch Ratings report says Breen-US-en-US vard Public Schools one relative weaken-US -en-US ness is its revenue framework, which is en-US provided through a state formula that en-US combines property taxes and state funden-US -en-US ing. Revenue from that formula did not en-US keep pace with inflation over the 10 years en-US ending in 2017 and has lagged the en-US growth rate in state revenues, Fitch says.en-US For the past two years, the Legislature en-US has voted to roll back local property-tax en-US rates for schools so that rising property en-US values of existing homes and businesses en-US do not result in higher property-tax bills en-US for owners or higher revenue for school en-US districts. In 2018, all new property-tax en-US revenue would come from new developen-US-en-US ment in Brevard and would be offset by a en-US state mandate to add armed police en-US resource officers to all schools.en-US Meanwhile, Brevard Public Schools has en-US slowly but steadily reduced its debt from en-US past school construction from $512.1 milen-US -en-US lion in 2012 to $446.7 million in 2016. en-US Future schools planned for Viera and en-US West Melbourne will be built with impact en-US fees on new development in those areas en-US under BPS five-year capital plan.en-GBRatingen-USFrom page 1

en-USIndian Harbour Beach car wash en-US takes care of customersen-USRecently, I had my car cleaned on the en-US interior and exterior at the Ocean Spray en-US Car Wash on Eau Gallie Boulevard in en-US Indian Harbour Beach. en-US After the work was completed and I was en-US on my way home, I found that my cup en-US holder, ashtray mechanism had been en-US damaged during the cleaning. en-US I reported it via voice message to the en-US establishment, not really expecting to en-US hear from them. en-US However, my call was answered in a en-US timely manner, and the manager, Conrad, en-US asked to see the damage. en-US When I took the car back over, he en-US inspected the damage and within a couple en-US days, my mechanism was replaced with a en-US new one and I am one very satisfied cusen-US -en-US tomer. en-US Kudos to Ocean Spray Car Wash.en-USLaw against importing elephant en-US parts should not be changed en-USI question why anyone would want to en-US reverse the ban that protected elephants? en-US I just read that it is now legal to bring en-US elephant parts to the U.S. as trophies.en-US What's going on here?en-USSubstitute teachers deserveen-US more pay, respect en-USDo you know how hard it is to be a suben-US -en-US stitute? How demanding? Think back to en-US your days in school, you remember how en-US subs were treated, don't you? en-US Of course you do, and it wasn't nice. en-US Subs are treated like sub-humans, even by en-US other staff members at the school (or bus en-US drivers), because you are not permanent.en-US Even though you might work every day en-US with the school system, you still are not en-US considered one of "them."en-US Doing some research, I found that the en-US rate of pay for subs is low around Florida. en-US It is sad that they are not more respecten-US-en-US ed. They do not get any benefits or paid en-US holidays, and at the same time are treated en-US differently. How sad. en-US I used to sub in Kentucky, and they en-US would actually give substitutes retirement en-US benefits.en-US So, what is the pay for substitutes? en-US About $10 to $12 an hour. They also are en-US not guaranteed hours. en-US They are expected to accept jobs to en-US maybe work all day or part of the day. en-US Their assigned school may be anywhere en-US in Brevard County. It is very demanding. en-US Then, the sub is treated once again as en-US "sub-human" compared to the other staff. en-US I know there are some days where the en-US subs have a great day, but there are many en-US more where the students give a sub a realen-US -en-US ly hard time.en-US Brevard, treat your substitutes well. Pay en-US them well. And students, come on, be en-US more respectful to a hard-working substien-US -en-US tute teacher.en-USHealth First does not en-US en-US discriminate against anyoneen-USIm writing in regards to the March 23 en-US edition of Rants & Raves, the paragraph en-US with the headline Health First should en-US add LGBT in anti-discrimination stateen-US -en-US menten-US I wanted to let you know Health First en-US does include non-discrimination against en-US sexual orientation in our non-discriminaen-US -en-US tion policy, which can be found at en-US Health First, its hospitals and its entities en-US do not discriminate against any person on en-US the basis of actual or perceived race, color, en-US national origin, religion, age, gender, genen-US-en-US der identity, sexual orientation, political en-US affiliation, disability, or age in admission, en-US treatment, or participation in its proen-US -en-US grams, services and activities, or in en-US employment. en-US For more information about this policy, en-US contact the ADA/Section 504 Coordinaen-US -en-US tor listed in each individual policy.en-US I realize the Rants & Rave submissions en-US are anonymous, but I wanted to just make en-US everyone aware.en-USWhen suspects are caught en-US en-US they should have no rightsen-USIn my opinion, when caught RED en-US HANDED they are not a suspect but a en-US criminal/terrorist. en-US They give up their constitutional rights en-US and should not be protected by the Conen-US-en-US stitution. en-US After a swift complete investigation the en-US punishment should be carried out swiftly. en-US Now it takes years before punishment is en-US imposed. en-US When the criminals/terrorist know en-US they have no constitutional protection en-US and punishment will be carried out swiften-US-en-US ly, the message will be YOU COMMIT en-US A HORRENDOUS CRIME punishen-US -en-US ment will be swift! en-US Guantanamo Naval Base should been-US en-US used.

She obtained her license in en-US 2005. She started building her team in en-US January 2017.en-US Mrs. Tidwell has established two gateen-US -en-US way positions that aim to advance her en-US team members in realty. As of now the en-US Tidwell Team consists of two women: en-US Networking Specialist Arielle Naylor and en-US Director of Operations Annie Cortes. The en-US Tidwell team currently operates in the en-US RE/MAX The Home Center, LLC in en-US Cocoa under Owner/Broker Jack Magen-US -en-US gard, at 3815 N. U.S. 1, Suite 115.en-US Donna has been a mentor to many of en-US us in this industry. She goes far and en-US beyond for her clients, team members, en-US and peers, Mrs. Cortes said. Learning en-US from her has been both a blessing and en-US anenriching experience.I highly admire en-US Donna for theeffortandpassion she en-US invests towards her successfulcareer and en-US for being such a kind person.en-US She is an amazing teacher who gives en-US selflessly of her time and knowledge, Ms. en-US Naylor said in an email. She is also one of en-US my biggest supporters and encourages me en-US to be the best that I can be. This team is en-US amazing!en-US My plans are to have a gateway posien-US -en-US tion to introduce new Realtors to the field en-US of real estate, Mrs. Tidwell said. en-US She describes it as a small business en-US operating in a big business. Her hopes are en-US to one day achieve the level of broker and en-US owner. Mrs. Tidwell shared what she en-US thought the difference was between simen-US -en-US ply obtaining your license and being a en-US successful Realtor. en-US Being a Realtor is more than just geten-US -en-US ting your license. Its about preserving the en-US profession and maintain the integrity of en-US what a realtor is supposed to represent, en-US Mrs. Tidwell said.en-US To her, the job is her life, and her seren-US -en-US vice to her clients is the priority. en-US I really dont have an interest in being a en-US Realtor at all. Im dedicated to being a en-US Realtor. Theres a difference. I think a en-US Realtor has to be genuine, honest, orgaen-US -en-US nized, knowledgeable and efficient. If you en-US dont have any of those characteristics or en-US sense of dedication to not only the profesen-US -en-US sion but to your clients, youre doing a en-US disservice, Mrs. Tidwell said. en-US Like everyone in life, Mrs. Tidwell conen-US -en-US fides that she endured hard times. Howen-US-en-US ever, she attributes her altruistic nature to en-US her faith in God, persistence and dedicaen-US-en-US tion to her job.en-US Ive been through my difficult times. I en-US dont want to fool anyone about that. en-US Sometimes I feel like Ive clawed through en-US that, but I feel that if I hadnt gone through en-US what I went through I wouldnt be where en-US Im at. Perseverance always pays off. Mrs. en-US Tidwell said. en-US Mrs. Tidwell and her husband have five en-US children. Along with 18 years of service in en-US the United States Air Force, Mrs. Tidwell en-US has also won Platinum Club stature, an en-US award, according to the RE/MAX website, en-US that is given to associates who rank en-US among the very highest of producers with en-US gross commission amounts of$250,000 en-US $499,999.en-US Im a hard worker, Mrs. Tidwell said. en-US I am so sensitive not only to my own en-US needs, but to other peoples needs, Mrs. en-US Tidwell said. I go above and beyond for en-US my clients. They feel connected to me. I en-US just got a picture sent to me of a previous en-US clients baby who was just born. Ive been en-US invited to weddings, christenings, birthen-US -en-US day parties and cookouts. en-US Perhaps the most enduring trait Mrs. en-US Tidwell possesses is her intimately allied en-US relationship with clients. en-US I get very connected to my people and en-US I like that, Mrs. Tidwell said. en-US For more information, call (321) 237-en-US 0082.en-US By Josh Whiteneren-USFor Hometown News en-US SUNDAY, APRIL 8 en-USLearn to paint pastels:en-US Learn how to en-US draw and paint wildlife, animals and pets, en-US naturescapes, still life and portraits, and en-US abstracts from 10 a.m. to noon Sundays en-US and from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays at Art en-US Gallery of Viera, 2201 Town Center Drive, en-US Suite 111, Viera.en-US The fee is $25 per class or $85 for four en-US classes and you can join anytime.en-US Contact Debi Pettigrew to register: en-US (321) 749-1153 or en-US dpettigrew@cfl.rr.comen-US en-US View Debis work at en-US www.pastelsbydeb.en-US comen-US .en-US Farmers market every Sunday in en-US Rockledge:en-US The Space Coast Farmers en-US Market is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays at en-US Larry Schultz Park, 2560 Fiske Blvd., en-US Rockledge.en-US For more information, call Joyce Rizzo at en-US (321) 961-2732 or Pam Rollins at (321) en-US 514-8823 or send an email ``to en-US spacecoastfarmersmarket@gmail.comen-US .en-US Beginning Hebrew class:en-US Learn to en-US speak Hebrew at 12:15 p.m. Sundays at en-US Temple Israel, 7350 Lake Andrew Drive, en-US Viera.en-US The class is taught by Peter Czutrin, en-GBCalendaren-USFrom page 5en-GB Seeen-GB en-GB CALENDARen-GB, page 10

TWLOHA officially en-US became a nonprofit by 2007. The charity en-US won a $1 million grant in 2011 during en-US the American Giving Awards on NBC.en-US To get people involved in the nonprofen-US -en-US its mission of bringing hope and finding en-US help for people fighting depression, en-US addiction, self-injury or suicide, volunen-US-en-US teers came up with a 5K to shed light in en-US the community and garner support.en-US The sixth annual Run For It 5K will en-US return this year at 8 a.m. Saturday, April en-US 14, at the David R. Schechter Center, en-US 1089 S. Patrick Dr., Satellite Beach.en-US Early registration, which ends April 12, en-US costs $27 for individuals, $24 for a team en-US and $17 for children 11 and younger. en-US Teams must have at least four memen-US -en-US bers and will not be eligible to register on en-US the day of the race.

Weve seen en-US the impact suicide can have in a commuen-US-en-US nity the past couple of months here in en-US Melbourne, and we just want to create a en-US safe place for these kids and give them en-US the tools they can use to not only help en-US themselves but other people.en-US One of the goals that the organization en-US hopes to achieve, according to Ms. Wilden-US -en-US er, is to reduce the stigma behind mental en-US illness.en-US Ms. Wilder said the nonprofits goal is en-US to raise $60,000 with the Run For It 5K, en-US which will go toward helping cover the en-US cost of treatment on a case-by-case basis.en-US Last year, a record-breaking 750 peoen-US -en-US ple registered to run in Satellite Beach en-US for the 5K, and this year organizers en-US expect to see 850-900 runners. en-US Ms. Wilder added that 2,000 virtual en-US runners have already registered to join en-US from all 50 states and five countries en-US including Japan and Canada.en-US Its been incredible to see how many en-US people we can touch with this event en-US every single year, Ms. Wilder said. en-US Being able to fall into the niche of colen-US -en-US laborating with health and fitness has en-US opened a ton of more doors for us en-US because its getting our message to people en-US who may not have heard about us en-US before... and creating a community in en-US their own space to openly talk about en-US mental health.en-US Post-race events will include an awards en-US ceremony for a variety of race divisions en-US and a raffle with prizes such as hotel en-US stays to mini golfing, and family-friendly en-US activities such as a bounce house.en-US Registration also includes a pancake en-US breakfast at Backwater in Downtown en-US Melbourne. en-US Meal tickets can be purchased for en-US friends and family members of particien-US -en-US pants at $5 each.en-US For more information, visit en-US www.en-US en-US en-USPhoto courtesy of Elizabeth Wilderen-USRunners anticipate the start of To Write Love On Her Arms Run For It en-US 5K in Satellite Beach.

en-USMemorial honors fallen pararescuemenen-USPATRICK AIR FORCE BASE On en-US March 27, nearly 1,500 people gathered at en-US Patrick Air Force Base for a memorial seren-US -en-US vice to honor two Reserve pararescuemen en-US (also known as PJs) who died in a helien-US -en-US copter crash in Iraq along with five other en-US Airmen.en-US Master Sgt. William Posch, 36 and Staff en-US Sgt. Carl Enis, 31 were members of the en-US 308th Rescue Squadron who were both en-US noted to be the best of us according to en-US fellow Airmen.en-US The men were killed when their en-US HH-60G Pave Hawk Helicopter crashed en-US on March 15. At the time of press, the en-US accident was still under investigation and en-US did not seem to be the result of enemy en-US activity.en-US More than 200 PJs attended the memoen-US -en-US rial and there are estimated to be about en-US 400 active-duty PJs in total, according to en-US Staff Sgt. Steven Woltz of the 38th Rescue en-US Squadron.en-US We are a small career field so when a en-US death happens, its a big deal, SSgt. Woltz en-US said. "Thats why so many PJs attended the en-US memorial.en-US SSgt. Woltz participated in the 21-gun en-US salute at the memorial and drove down en-US from his base in Georgia to attend.en-US The day before the memorial, Debauchen-US-en-US ery in Historic Downtown Melbourne en-US hosted an event, Friends & Family en-US Remembrance to Celebrate & Honor en-US MSGT Bill Posch & SSGT Carl Enis and en-US to benefit The Pararescue Foundation.en-US A buffet was provided by Ole Fire Grill en-US and Matts Casbah, and the event featured en-US live music, raffles and a silent auction.en-US Debauchery gave an incredible donaen-US -en-US tion of 40 percent of their nights sales to en-US The Pararescue Foundation, said Julie en-US Story, event co-planner for The Pararesen-US -en-US cue Foundation. It was an incredible outen-US -en-US pouring of support by many people.en-US MSgt.

Posch also took en-US part in a long-range rescue mission at sea en-US involving the rescue of two German sailen-US -en-US ors whose sailboat caught fire and sank. en-US The sailors were stranded 500 nautical en-US miles off the east coast of Central Florida.en-US SSgt. Enis was a Tallahassee resident en-US who joined the 308th Rescue Squadron in en-US 2010. He also worked as a commercial en-US real estate agent in Tallahassee when he en-US wasnt on duty.en-US SSgt. Enis was named Airman of the en-US Year from the 920th Rescue Wing and en-US the Air Force Reserve Command.en-US I hired both of them when I was Chief en-US of Unit at the time, said Chief Master Sgt. en-US Douglas Kestranek (U.S. Air Force, en-US Retired). They were both passionate. Bill en-US [Posch] was a master of his craft. He en-US wanted to do things the right way. Carl en-US was one of the strongest PJs I knew.en-US According to The Pararescue Foundaen-US-en-US tions website, PJs are the only Departen-US -en-US ment of Defense elite combat forces speen-US -en-US cifically organized, trained, equipped and en-US postured to conduct full spectrum Peren-US -en-US sonnel Recovery... and the most highly en-US trained and versatile Personnel Recovery en-US specialists in the world.en-US The Pararescue Foundation was founden-US -en-US ed in 2016 when a group of four retired en-US Pararescuemen saw an immediate need to en-US establish a highly qualified organization en-US of skilled medical and psychological proen-US -en-US fessionals to help Pararescuemen and en-US Combat Rescue Officers and their famien-US -en-US lies.en-US The nonprofit organizes retreats for en-US candidates who are either active duty or en-US retired in order to bring families closer en-US together.en-US Were here to assist the immediate en-US needs of families of the fallen, Mr. Kesen-US-en-US tranek said, who is also on the board of en-US directors for the nonprofit.

en-US 14 Fire chief completes CFO program, sets goals en-USBREVARD COUNTY Theres en-US something most people dont know en-US about Palm Bay Fire Chief Russell en-US Rusty Nail: en-US I can actually be funny at times, he en-US said.en-US That sense of humor is likely what en-US helps Chief Nail balance a position that en-US requires serious skill, commitment and en-US ongoing training.en-US To that end, Chief Nail recently comen-US -en-US pleted an intensive program that awards en-US him the professional designation of en-US Chief Fire Officer (CFO). en-US Accreditation or credentialing of any en-US kind is crucial to ensure that an agency en-US or individual is seeking continual en-US improvement by adhering to best pracen-US -en-US tices, Chief Nail said. These pursuits en-US ensure that the citizens and customers en-US are getting the best product from their en-US fire department and employees. en-US The CFO program is voluntary and en-US recognizes fire service individuals who en-US demonstrate their excellence in seven en-US measured areas: experience, education, en-US professional development, professional en-US contributions, association membership, en-US community involvement and technical en-US competencies. en-US It is intensive and challenges you to en-US take an inventory to measure who you en-US are and what you need to improve, he en-US said.en-US While Chief Nail may be fairly new to en-US his role as fire chief (he was sworn in en-US August 2017), his fire service career goes en-US back more than 25 years starting right en-US here in Palm Bay.en-US I was blessed to get hired by the city en-US of Palm Bay in April 1992, Chief Nail en-US said. The firefighters here are hardcore en-US and showed me the mindset that was en-US needed to give everything I could to this en-US profession. I cannot thank those who en-US came before me enough.en-US He moved on to the Orlando Fire en-US Department and served there for more en-US than 20 years in positions ranging from en-US firefighter, driver/engineer and lieuen-US -en-US tenant to district chief, assistant/battalen-US -en-US ion chief and deputy chief. en-US Coming back to Palm Bay was an easy en-US choice for him. It helped, too, that he was en-US unanimously recommended by the selecen-US-en-US tion panel in charge of reviewing applien-US -en-US cants for the fire chief position.en-US The personnel working for this en-US department are the best, Chief Nail said. en-US When it comes to taking care of our resen-US-en-US idents and their property, it was easy for en-US me to want to do that with these fireen-US -en-US fighters and staff.en-US His first goal is to restore fire and EMS en-US service to the Fire Station 5 territory by en-US getting fire stations 5 and 6 built. Fire en-US Station 5, which is closed and in need of en-US replacement, is on San Filippo Drive en-US near Eastern Florida State College.en-US Second, Chief Nail wants to see the en-US city regain its own fire/EMS communien-US -en-US cations to improve response times, seren-US -en-US vice levels, accountability and safety.en-US He also wants to ensure that the peren-US -en-US sonnel have the safest, most reliable en-US apparatus and equipment to do their en-US jobs.en-US There are a lot more things to do like en-US improving our ISO rating, seeking en-US accreditation and various community en-US outreach initiatives, Chief Nail said.en-US Connecting with community memen-US-en-US bers is his specialty of his, and he said the en-US fire department door is always open if en-US young people want more information en-US about pursuing a fire service career.en-US If you have a heart for this job, we en-US want and need you, Chief Nail said. en-US This profession is truly a calling and en-US requires one to be able to make the ultien-US -en-US mate sacrifice, risking your own personal en-US safety to help others. It is dangerous, but en-US nothing is as rewarding.en-US By Amy Lyonen-USFor Hometown Heroes en-USPhoto courtesy of Palm Bay Fire Rescueen-USPalm Bay Fire Chief Rusty Nail en-US recently completed an intensive en-US program that awards him the proen-US-en-US fessional designation of Chief en-US Fire Officer. en-USMelbourne honors servicemen, employeesen-USMELBOURNE On March 9, the Melen-US-en-US bourne Police Department held its annual en-US awards ceremony to recognize police offien-US-en-US cers, communications officers and civilian en-US employees for outstanding performance, en-US dedication, courage and professionalism. en-US Each year the Melbourne Police Departen-US -en-US ment also recognizes one police officer, en-US communications officer and employee who en-US stand out among even these exceptional en-US honorees. en-US The 2017 Melbourne Police Department en-US award recipients are:en-US Police Officer of the Year: David Helms. en-US Officer David Helmss keen skills and dedien-US-en-US cation to duty protected the community en-US from violent and dangerous criminals in en-US 2017:en-US In March, Officer Helms and K-9 Scout en-US located and took into custody a robbery susen-US-en-US pect who was armed with a knife and had en-US committed battery 45 minutes before they en-US arrived.en-US After an active shooter fired into a crowd en-US of more than 1,000 people in a local park in en-US April, Officer Helms helped search for vicen-US -en-US tims, locate witnesses and preserve the en-US crime scene during an extremely dangerous en-US situation.en-US In September, he tracked and located a en-US suspect who had fired multiple gunshots en-US into an occupied residence during the afteren-US -en-US math of Hurricane Irma.
