On some level, logical
assumptions are valuable,
especially when considering
what will happen in the future
based on what happened in the
past. Assuming that Kentucky'
would win the NCAA basket-
ball tournament made sense.
Predicting on Sunday morn-
ing that Phil Mickelson would
win the Masters this year, bas-
ed on his record, would have
been a logical assumption until
you bet the ranch on it.
about why something hap-
pened in the past or is hap-
pening in the present, which
are not factually validated
before you move forward, will
invariably cause you to make
costly errors. The reason is,
we develop these assumptions
based on "listening through
our own value systems."
One somewhat humorous
example occurred when I was
coaching a vice president of
human resources. The VP, who
had joined the company the
year before, was having prob-
lems getting on the same wave-
length as his boss, the CEO.
BeamPines was hired to help
with the relationship. One of
the incidents that demonstrat-
ed the problem came up when
the CEO's assistant asked the
VP if the administrative staff
could set up an aerobics class
during the lunch hour, based
on a Jane Fonda tape. The VP
felt he needed the CEO's per-
mission, so at a one-on-one
meeting he relayed their
request. The CEO got red in
the face and stated, "No (eff-
ing) way." Startled by the
CEO's response,.the VP imme-
diately backed off and didn't
ask any further questions. He
then advised the CEO's assis-
tant that it wouldn't work and
they should just let i.t go.
A few weeks later the CEO
asked his assistant whether
they were still thinking about
the aerobics class. She told
him what the VP had reported
ito he uand thai ih,.y had theri-
!fore dropp,-d the- id:a [he-

obics class, which he felt was

One of my clients, hearing
this story, empathized with the
VP who was obviously intimi-
tated, and felt he should be
given a pass. My client belie-
ved that, rather than challenge
or question the boss, it was
logical that the VP would adopt
the assumption, that is, that
the CEO did not want the
administrative staff to have an
However, that is the prob-
lem with assumptions. By not
developing a strategy to uncov-
er the facts, the VP of HR came
across as ineffective and made
an incorrect decision. If,
instead of becoming fearful
and withdrawing, the VP had
attempted to validate his
assumption, he might have sal-
vaged the situation. For exam-
ple, if he had said to the boss,
"As you know, I haven't been
here a long time, and my rais-
ing the issue seems to have
really upset you.. For the
future, is there something
about the situation I need to
understand better?" My sense
is this approach Would -have

was really bothering him, as
he did with his assistant, and

Years ago, Clyde and I were
sitting around talking about life,

replied yes, how about you?
Clyde handed me a 3rd Infantry
patch and said, in his typical
Clyde manner, "Yeah and I
found this extra patch."
He did' not volunteerany-
thing so I asked "What did you'
do?" "Oh, I served 20 years,

and was lucky enough to marry
-a great lady during that time."
Still no information about his
Army career so I pulled it out of

introduction is to show not only

Major. If you know:anything
about the Army, you know that
the Green Berets are the elite

Clyde's day, set the .standard

entire Armed Forces. A,

is a rigorous selection process

VIEWPOINT/ToNY CRAWFORD/FERNANDINA BEACH
'City Manager Follies' in 4 acts
Not sure how many people.have seen
the "City Manager Follies" prior to its
recent closing at City Hall. If it weren't so
sad it would be an award-winning show.
Act One: The Lynching
The new commission voted to oust
the city manager after some members on
the commission figured that a few weeks
of working with him was enough to make
a fair, impartial and educated judgment
that he wasn't qualified for the job which
he had held for years. No goal-setting
meetings, no evaluation process, no
chance for him to prove himself worthy
or unworthy for the job. In short, no trial.
In fairness to the mayor and the sitting
commissioners who had worked with
him, they had earned the right to pass
judgment. I think the city manager also
earned a six-month evaluation and
review process before judgment and sen-
tence was passed.
Act Two: The Flip Flop
If you attended this meeting or saw it
online, it was interesting to watch and try
to figure out if the resolution for a super-
majority vote (4 to 1) to decide on the
new city rhanager' (which was passed at a
prior meeting), was in fact a resolution,
or not, and if in fact it was a resolution,
whether it was passed and whether it
was actually voted on. You would have
needed to be there or seen this to begin
to understand what went on. I honestly
can't put into words the confusion that
went on at the meeting. Simply put the
commission voted at a prior meeting to a
4 to 1 vote in order to select a new city
manager. At this meeting, it was put on
the table to change what they had previ-
ously voted and change it to a 3 to 2 vote
to decide who would be our new city
manager. Why, you may wonder? Most in
It was brought out by Commissioner
Tim Poyntee, a voice of reason in this dis-
cussion, that he felt they should sit down
and work as a team and at least try to get
the 4 to 1 vote needed. No workshops
had been held to even try to start this
process. Why? There were some on the
commission who felt that before they
even tried to reach a selection agreement
of 4 to 1, that this would not be possible
and the rules needed to be changed to a
3 to 2 vote.
I hope that those of you who have
stuck with this article to this point will
wonder why out of approximately 90
applicants given to us by a professional
organization that some on our commis-
sion couldn't sit down and at least try to
give the appearance that they can play
nice and get the hard work done without
Act 3: The Obvious Becomes Reality
It had been all over the city for
months that Joe Gerrity was the shoo-in
to become city manager. It was clear that
if you followed the meetings and what
was going on within the city, this whole
selection process was nothing more than
one big dog and pony show. It was obvi-
ous that Joe was the choice of some and
the change of voting was just an insur-
ance policy to better assure their agenda
would have the best chance of getting
Keep in mind, in all fairness to Joe, he
may be the best person for the job, he
may very well be what the city needs at
this time and he may prove that he is the
right person for the job. My beef isn't
that Joe got the job. I have met Joe a few
times when he last served and he was
always above board to me and very
accessible. My concern was the way this
selection process was held, or more
accurately, wasn't held. I'am not sure if
some on the commission actually think
that we, the taxpayers, are that stupid to
not see through this for what it was from
the beginning. It was like the old bull
running through the china shop and no
one was worried about the damage it
caused. To many, the perception of the
commission has yet again been damaged
Act 4: Let Sanity Return
Our commission is made up of five
outstanding, educated and responsible
individuals who each have the city's best
interests at heart. Each has a vision of
what direction the city needs to go. At
this point one has to wonder will they be
able to agree on anything? Will they
show us they are working for all of our
best interests? Or will this division con-
tinue? It has become painfully clear
there was an agenda to be met and
damn anything that got in the way of that
We can only hope that the infighting
and bickering witnessed by those who
have seen it first hand or have been fol-
'lowing it will stop and that the commis-
sion can move forward or, at the very
least, give us the perception that they are
getting back to the business of what they
were elected for.
I don't think there is anyone in this
city that wants Joe to fail. Folks who
thought he wasn't the best qualified want
him to succeed. Folks who didn't like the
process that got him the job want him to
succeed. Believe me, everyone wants
him to turn out to be the best city manag-
er to come down the pike. Why? Not only
to help the city in its time of need, but, as
importantly, no one wants to sit through
another tragic play such as we all have

WEDNESDAY, MAY 30.2012 NEWS News-Leader
About 3 p.m. May 8, Darren
Wingate heard a faint knock at
his back door and had barely
nudged the door open when,
he says, he heard a boom and
saw his best friend, Hoss, reel-
ing from a gunshot wound to
Wingate, 45, says he rushed
onto the back porch after the
three-year-old pit bull and told
his shooter, a Nassau County
Sheriff's deputy, "Don't shoot
my dog!" moments before the
deputy said, "I will," arid fired a
second and final shot.
Deputy Damon Baxley tells
a different story. In a statement
to police, Baxley said he was
startled by what sounded like a
large dog barking and its owner
shouting inside the Hilliard
home as he backed away from
the door and started: to
announce himself. He said the
door swung open and a large pit
bull charged, prompting him
to draw his handgun and shoot
, the dog twice.
"It was obvious that Mr.
Wingate was having difficulty
controlling the dog," Baxley
said during a brief phone inter-
But Wingate said the police
portrayal of his dog is simply
not true. The Hilliard man, who
works from his Roy Sikes Road
residence and receives frequent
deliveries there, said the dog
never so much as growled at a
courier, let alone bit one.
Wingate alleges police are
"circling the wagons" to cover
for Baxley. Nassau County
Sheriff Tommy Seagraves said
he stands "absolutely" behind
Baxley's "appropriate" use -of
lethal force and that the deputy
did nothing wro-ng.
Wingate said he was treated
like a criminal during the hives-
tigation. Wingate, who was
handcuffed for 15 minutes fol-
lowing the shooting for being
irate and "verbally accosting"
the deputy who "feared for his
safety" according to the
report, said Sgt. Jon Slebos,
one of the responding deputies,
spoke with Baxley for several
minutes while Wingate sat
Asked about verbally accost-
ing Baxley, Wingate said he
repeatedly asked the deputy,
"What kind of chicken- cop
just shoots a harmless dog?"
He said Slebos and other
deputies never asked him what
occurred and asked him to give
a written statement only min-
utes before they left the scene.
"They never allowed me up
there to point out just what hap-
opened to get the full truth out of
it," said Wingate. "They. just
allowed him to go and tell his
story, but never came to me
and got the full story."
Slebos, who was placed on
probation and removed from
patrol in 2001 for shooting five
dogs in less than four years
(including three that year), said
the location of one .40-caliber
shell casing outside the
enclosed porch was consistent
both with where Baxley said
he was standing and with a
statement by Wingate that the
dog was three- to four-feet away
and charging at the deputy
when Baxley shot-him. He said
Wingate "did not give a con-
sistent timeline of what
Seagraves, who said he has
been bitten twice by dogs while
on duty, said the fault rests
chiefly with the dog's owner.
"The owner of the pet should
have been a lot more account-
able for the control of that ani-
mal," the sheriff said.
Wingate said Lt. Hank
Martinez dismissed from the
scene one female deputy, who
sympathized with his family
after she allegedly told his wife,
"IDm sorry about this. ... This
shouldn't have ever happened."
Martinez, he said, merely scold-
ed another deputy who tried to
snatch his wife's phone after
badgering her for "harassing
deputies" as she photographed
Wingate said Friday he
wants to know why Baxley
came to his home in the first
place. Baxley, according to the
report, was serving a.Duval
County arrest warrant on
Wingate's daughter for her fail-
ure to pay an open container
fine. In fact, she turned herself
into Jacksonville Jail on May 7
the morning prior and had been
"From my understanding
the warrant has been recalled,"
Seagraves said, "but it showed
active in the system (at the
Asked if his office had made
any amends to Wingate for his
loss after learning the arrest
had been made and the visit
not necessary, the sheriff said
"No sir, that isn't our fault,"
Seagraves said. "That was a
Duval warrant. There isn't a
reason for me to make a justi-
fication for something that's
Wingate said he also wants
to know why Baxley came,
unannounced, to the back door
of his home. In Baxley's por-
tion of the report, it said he had.
been to the residence previ-
ously and noted there were
"cobwebs" covering the front
door and the back door was
used as the everyday entrance.
Baxley also told police he had
started to announce himself
when the door sprung open.
Seagraves said police are
not required to identify them-
selves while serving arrest war-
rants and it's "nothing uncom-
mon to go the back door."
Contacted Thursday, Baxley.
said he went to the home's back
door, btit declined to elaborate.
He refused further comments,
citing Seagraves' policy barring
his employees from speaking
with the media.
Wingate said there aren't
any cobwebs on his front porch
and that Baxley knocked faint-
ly on the back door, never
announcing his presence.
"That was just all kind of
bogus lies that they tried to
cover up with," Wingate added.
"But it's my word against theirs;
what can I do?"
Most of all, Wingate wants
to know why, if the incident
,happened as quickly as police
have said, Baxley's first instinct
was to draw and fire his gun in
the direction of the dog, and
by extension, Wingate.
According to Baxley's state-
ment, "the owner of the dog
had rushed out the door after
the dog and was present when
it was shot."
Wingate said Hoss was a
harmless dog who followed
him everywhere and was like
his kid. But it could have been
him, he said, and next time the
victim could be child. Wingate
said Baxley acted with "no
regard for anybody's safety."
"They allow their own men
to put people in danger," he
The sheriff defended his
deputy's use of force.
"He used whatever force he
felt necessary to use,"
Wingate, who said he was
initially outraged, said he's
seeking answers from God
instead. "I feel. like the Lord
does want me to forgive," he
He said his only reminder
of Hoss is the bullet hole in his
porch reminding him of how
the dog died.
Seagraves said Baxley, who
has no complaints or discipli-
nary history, is upset over the
whole ordeal. But the sheriff
ruled against making Baxley

ing again. Not that there's
been anything wrong with
my legs but I've just got-
ten out of the habit of taking
long walks. In Bangkok, in the
beginning, I walked around
the nearby lake park in the
morning. That happened
twice during my first week
there and never again. But for
at least my first month there I
briskly walked the half-mile or
so to the Skytrain station,
climbing four flights of stairs
over busy traffic-congested
highways in the process. And
then I did the reverse at the
end of the day. At least that
was one mile of some exer-
But as my time in Bangkok
got tighter and tighter with
the workload ever ballooning,
I got out of the walking habit.
Instead I hopped in the apart-
ment's "tuk-tuk" for a quick
ride to the Skytrain stop. And,
coming home I often just
hopped on the back of a
motorcycle operated by a "soi
boy" and zoomed back to my
apartment. I just had no time

', ,,The chip is something that we do not practice enough, yet it is such an essential part
of the game to save strokes. With that said, here are a couple of tips to try and get
more consistent in your chipping game. The first aspect of good chipping is to keep
a steady pace on your swing. If you practice a shot and then change that during the
actual swing, the speed of the ball on the green will be completely changed. The
other big tip is so obvious, yet most amateur golfers have the hardest time with the
task. You need to stay down during the entire motion of the chip to ensure a good shot. Leave your
head still and keep your eye on the spot where the ball was before you hit it. Make sure your
posture following the chip is the same as when you addressed the bI.all.

When writer's block strikes, just sleep on it
When teaching writing work-
shops, I try and take the fear out
of the writing" process. Yes, writ-
ing can be scary, but it also can
bring you such joy. Putting pen to
paper or fingers to keyboard is
the start. But then what? Many
fear the dreaded "writer's block."
So what is writer's block and-
how do you get past it? It is not
an incurable disease. It can be
Fortunately, writer's block has
rarely been a problem for me.
Blocks are tough, especially
when you have deadlines. So
where do the ideas come from?
How do I get started? Somehow
the ideas always come; some-
times just in the nick of time.
There have been some closes
calls. If my muse is not helping
me get a column together, I rely
on my Dad's often-repeated
advice and "sleep on it." It works.
When morning comes, my fin-
gers find the right computer keys
and another deadline is met.
The pressure never ends.
Once the column-is turned in I
know that in one, too short week
another will have to be ready. I
have made deadline close to a
1,000 times in the last 10 years.
Yes, there have been more than a
1,000 Porch columns. Hard to
believe. It is enough to give any-
one writer's block.
All creative people experience
"blocks." Musicians, poets and
artists will describe times of
frustration and their strategies to
get past the problems. My
blocks include doing laundry or
vacuuming. Just can't get start-
Column ideas may come in
the bathtub, walking on the
beach or cooking dinner. Just
about anytime. I have been
known to wake up and grab a
piece of paper from the bedside
table and jot down an idea.
Cocktail napkins have been used
for a quick note. My computer
holds rainy day files on'a wide -
variety of subjects and people. A
conversation, a story in the news-.
paper or something on television
will trigger an idea that may
become a future column. Other
ideas come rriy way via email and
as I move through my busy days.
When I write about special hap-
openings on the island I seek an
angle or personality that shows
the real story. It is the everyday
things that make up our daily
lives that grab me. Kind of like a "
photograph, I try and create a
word picture. Those who know
me well can tell when something
may trigger a Porch column.
"We're going to read about
this," they'll say. And they do.

over the years with approxi-
mately 20,000 visitors in 2011.
They know there is a need for
those who want to experience
the past stories of Amelia Island
and remake those into their
own experiences today.
It asks that the community
invest in an asset so that these
stories can continue to be told
and bring us together. One of
the greatest challenges for the
museum today is funding. With
an operating budget of just over
$300,000, half of the museum's
funding this year will come
from: membership ,16 percent,
general admission and tours
24 percent and grants percent.
The remaining income must
come from fundraisers and
public support in the form of
In the last few years grant
income has fallen dramatically
- (as funders shift priorities or
government funding dwindles).

programs such as the 4th grade

ers, new revenue sources' must

controlled through sound oper-
ating procedures and analysis,

funding gap, the museum is
returning to its beginning as a

Best Buddies at FBHS
Best Buddies is a National
Organization with a local chap-
ter just started at Fernandina
Beach High School. The broad
goal of Best Buddies is to bring
together high school students
with special needs and typical
high school kids. The motto
being, "We're more alike than,
McKenzie Brown, president
of Best Buddies, is a senior at
FBHS. Last year she saw a need
in her school and went out and
started a chapter of Best Bud-
dies from scratch. Here is what
she said when asked what her
goals were for Best Buddies.
"The goal of FBHS Best
Buddies is to break down the
barrier between students who
have intellectual and physical
disabilities and students in the
general education classes. Last
year I spent a lot of time in class-
rooms for students who have
intellectual disabilities and
quickly realized how discon-
nected from the student body
and activities they were."
Best Buddies now meets as
a group once a month during
lunch at FBHS and individually
as often as the two buddies
would like. It shares the goals of
Best Buddies International: one
that believes in creating oppor-
tunities for one-to-one friend-
The FBHS chapter has par-
ticipated in the "Spread the
Word to End the Word" cam-
paign to end the use of the word
"retard," they have created new
meaningful friendships on cam-
pus and they are attending the
annual "Friendship Ball" in
Jacksonville, which is a prom
for all those participating in Best
Local businesses and groups
have helped make this first year
successful for Best Buddies by
donating much needed money
to the local group. P5 produc-
tions also donated the T-shirts
and Subway provided a month-
ly lunch. These donations have
made it possible for the group to
organize events and plan for
If you would like to make a
donation to your local chapter of
Best Buddies or you know a
high school student who would
like to participate in the pro-
gram, contact Lori Venerdi at
321-6452. Every penny you
donate stays with the local
group and makes it possible for
them to participate in activities,
all year long.
MOTHER OF THE YEAR
Thanks to the organizing
efforts of Karol Patten, the
students at St. Michael
Academy wrote an essay
entitled, "Why My Mother
Should be the Mother of
the Year." Henna Gavem in
fourth grade was this
year's winner with her
essay about her mother,
Suzanne Maiher. With the
assistance of Mrs. Patten,
Henna's grandmother, and
the FSCJ office staff, a sur-
prise visit was arranged to
Suzanne's office where
Henna and Jenkins Mock,
an eighth grader who was
"Principal for the Day,"
presented her with flowers,
candy and gifts.
