Extreme rainfall exposes problems

Pat Traynor

Internal Vice-President Joseph Hart

Santa Rosa County Commissioners approved a $400,000 work order for Baskerville Donovan at their April 24 regular meeting.The funds Blaylock will be used for engineering services to develop a stormwater management plan for the Holley by the Sea (HBTS) watershed, where extreme rainfall over the past year has exposed many drainage problems. At the commission’s committee meeting April 21, County Engineer Roger Blaylock briefly described how $399,820 would be used for a multi-phased approach toward producing a plan for the 15 square miles comprising the HBTS watershed. The study will be organized into a report providing an overall view of drainage with an emphasis on identifying projects which could alleviate flooding or improve drainage conditions.

Ponds overflow and become one body of water at the main entrance of Holley by the Sea. Commissioner Lane Lynchard provided data regarding what he describes as the inordinate amount of rainfall in our area over the past six to 12 months. He provided details showing that during certain periods of the past 60 days the area has received 200-600 percent of normal precipitation amounts.

Lynchard pointed out 18.9”of rain was received in the panhandle from March 1 – April 20, making that the third wettest period in the last 65 years.“So when we say that we’ve received a lot of rain and that is what is making the problem worse -- it’s true. This is empirical data. This isn’t just us saying it’s rained a lot,”said Lyn-

HBTS Board officers trade places Pat Traynor was removed as President of the Board of Directors three months before his departure from the board Dowgwillo during reorganization at the April 8, 2014 regular board meeting. Board member Ed Dowgwillo made the motion for Tr a y n o r ’s Clancy removal as president and Jean Tashlick seconded the motion. Discussion ensued among the 24 members present. When asked,“Why?”from a voice in the audience Dowgwillo stated that Traynor created a hostile work environment for the employ-

ees and created obstacles to getting things done. “How can Traynor create a hostile work environment when the employees are managed by First Service?” asked member Melissa Lambert. “He thinks they work for him and he is threatening people with termination. That is just one of many things,”Dowgwillo replied. “He

has insinuated termination of employees that is beyond his scope and his behavior towards employees and board members has been threatening and belligerent,”added board member Carrie Clancey. Lambert went on to state that it was evident that the majorly of the board members did not get along and that many of the board

members have done what they are accusing Traynor of doing. “You have done no different to him,”Lambert stated.“It is a matter of leadership. We appreciate his efforts in the past. A change of leadership and leadership style is appropriate,”said Dowgwillo. Traynor, who was on a conferSee Board page 2

Melvin pointed out Baskerville Donovan had been previously chosen to perform the work through a selection process. At a local mitigation meeting held April 24, Blaylock explained more details about the HBTS plan.“It's a very extensive study,”said Blaylock. Navarre resident Richard Carr asked if it would be completed by the end of the year. Blaylock explained it was being done in stages over 8.5 months and that the timing of deliverables would be contingent on a number of factors. Carr asked about the entrance to HBTS. Avis Whitfield, director of public works for Santa Rosa County, reiterated how the aforementioned ponds at the entrance

Carr also asked about septic tanks, in-filled yards and ditches in need of maintenance.“It's beyond this study to address septic tanks,”replied

Blaylock. Assistant Public Works Director Stephen Furman stated such ditches and problems from in-filled yards should be reported to the county. Furman said it takes roughly 6-10 weeks to address reported issues due to current workloads.“We can get code compliance involved to

kinda strong arm owner and get them to remove fill or we can go in and remove,”added Furman. “These folks don't understand this isn't something we can't just come in and fix…that answer doesn't suit many of them. We wish we could wave a magic wand," Furman later added.

on most of these things. You don’t like dissention and that is why you are voting him out of office,”said Mike Scott. Dowgwillo stated that Traynor still had a vote and that, “sometimes new leadership is better than none.” Member Billy Neal got up to the podium and said that it wasn’t right to wait until Pat Traynor was out of town to reorganize the board and pointed out that it was not put on the agenda until that night as an add-on.“You don’t want the members to know what is going on – and that is wrong,”said Neal. The motion was called and passed 4-1 with Traynor as the dissenting vote. A motion was made for InternalVice President Mike Hart to move to the position of President and Traynor to move to Mike’s former position as Internal Vice President.“Pat likes to deal with the external, I’d like to see him as External,”said Tashlick. Traynor was asked if he had a preference and he said,“I’ll take Mike’s job.” When the vote was called, all were in favor except for Tashlick who voted nay.

And, they had no plans to build on the lot after it was discovered that septic would not be allowed for the size house they wanted to build. Holiday Builders will work with the ACC to seed the property, but up a silt fence, and get a builder’s bond for the property. According to the covenants, they have one year to build on a cleared lot. However, totally cleared lots are not allowed. The Holiday Builders representative said that he would also plant trees outside of the area that a house would eventually be built.

ence call because he was out of town, said that he had a question about leadership. He gave several instances when he had called some agenda items into question. “I’m not an aggressive person. If pointing out wrongdoing is aggressive, then I’m aggressive,”Traynor said. Member Lauretta Aiken commented from the audience that the membership voted Traynor in. “We are not voting him off the board; we are just removing him as board president,”said Clancy. Member Carol Scott went to the podium and pointed out that two of the board members where recently appointed, but Mr. Traynor was, elected. Board candidate Mike Scott and husband of Carol Scott stood up stating he had a point of order. He referenced Section 9 – Article 3 of bylaws stating that any director may be removed by 2/3 at a called special meeting. Once again, the board reminded everyone they were not removing Traynor from the board, they were just reorganizing officer positions. “What you are doing is shutting up the opposition.

Usage and guess policy discussed Member Billy Neal stood up at the podium to state that the draft policy should have been on the website but was not.“Give information to the members. The guest policy is not ready to go to the board for approval.” Member Pete Peterzen agreed with Neal. “I believe the current document, while good intentioned is a bit ambitious. A motion was made to withdraw both the usage and guest policy. After it was seconded – there was additional discussion.“If we come up with a good usage policy then everyone out of that scope would be a guest,”said Dowgwillo.

Whitfield stated the county works with property owners to address some ditchrelated issues.“If the owner pays for materials, the county provides labor,”said Whitfield, noting that results in an average cost of $1,100 per project versus $4,000 to 5,000. Carr asked if homeowners can hire someone to do such work. Public works officials stated they would want a plan submitted for review and inspection for work in right of way. Lou Greene, president of Navarre CERT, asked about metal culverts being replaced with concrete ones.“Where is this water going to run off,” asked Greene. Furman explained the Florida Department of Transportation is widening U.S. 98. and having to shift culverts back toward the right of way boundary.“We haven't looked at their plans and what they're doing...they're not redirecting water where it didn't go previously -- at least that's our understanding,”said Furman. “Extreme rainfall tests systems, and problems begin to

show up,” said Whitfield, adding,“Dry weather will fix a lot of ills.” The HBTS watershed drainage plan will be completed in three phases: data collection and inspection, watershed modeling and report and surveying and design services. Phase I is aimed to collect all accessible information about HBTS drainage, prepare the data for input into a hydraulic model. Phase II begins with development of an existing conditions model to identify the possible causes for flooding and evaluate different solutions with respect to upstream and downstream effects, resulting in a list reflecting which projects can be constructed independently and those which should be completed in phases due to the potential negative upstream or downstream effects. Phase III of the project is surveying and design services to develop construction drawings for projects identified during the previous two phases.

Board member candidate came up to the podium to speak to the issue of usage. My daughter with Downs Syndrome has been denied usage. I see member after member coming up - and what they are saying is just swept under the carpet. Board members reiterated that the covenants do not address variances under usage, only under architectural. The only way to rectify the situation was to address the covenants.

1-4. Traynor was the only vote for the chairlifts.

Chairlifts on pool deck voted on. Traynor made a motion to get the chair lift equipment because he said,“it is a budgeted item.” However, his motion failed due to a lack of second. It was discussed that the equipment had not been a budget item. Clancy made a motion to allocate $9,000 for the equipment and it was seconded for discussion. Two people had expressed interest in having aid to get in and out of the pool. Tashlick mentioned that she taught adaptive aquatics for 15 years and not one time did someone need a chairlift to get in and out of the pool. Traynor replied that perhaps they needed to remove the defibrillators from the recreational facility because no one used them. Motion was called and failed

Jogging Trail Discussed The jogging trail has not existed since it was destroyed in 2004. Three different surfaces were looked at: asphalt, concrete and rubber. With only $17,000 budgeted, the association could only get 1000 feet of asphalt track. A member wanted the board to look at the rubberized track. An estimate came back for $500,000. There will be more research. If any member knows about jogging trails – please see the manager. Beach Security Gate The front desk cannot see who is coming in and out and it is difficult to have access. The camera on the gate was hit by lightning this past summer. The board approved $35,000 for a total upgrade to the access gate including a pedestrian gate. ■ First Service Residential approved as Management Company for two year term with a 60-day non-renewal notice. ■ The contract with Lake Doctors to maintain the ponds was renewed. ■ Additional electrical breakers approved for front office area. ■ Upgrade to sound system approved, not to exceed $3,000.

HBTSNEWS 3 YARD OF THE MONTH

May 2014

April showers bring May flowers

By Shelby Smithey HBTSnews.com No strangers to beingYard of the Month recipients, Donald and Heidi Long’s garden oasis at 7244 Reef Road has earned them the title once again. The Longs have lived in Navarre for 13 years, and Heidi said that she loves getting recognition for the hard work she puts into her yard. “I’m very proud of it,”Heidi said.“And I love doing it. When you like to do something it’s easy.” Heidi said that she does all of the gardening in the yard, which includes lush Geraniums, Day Lilies, Crepe Myrtles and Washingtonia and Sago palms. Donald is retired from the Air Force and they are originally from Germany. The Longs lived in Oklahoma at Tinker Air Force Base

before retiring in Navarre. “The palms were so small when we first got them 13 years ago,”Heidi said.“It’s neat to see how much they have grown over the years.” To make upkeep a bit simpler, Heidi said that she and her husband recently removed two palms from the front yard. “They get pretty hard to maintain once they get tall,” she said.“This winter was hard on them too.” In the backyard, Heidi said that she loves to have a cup

of coffee in the mornings to enjoy her little piece of nature. Although the yard upkeep is mainly a one-woman operation, Heidi said that Donald does help out by mowing the lawn. “My husband thinks of it as a chore, but I don’t see it that way,”Heidi said.“But he does love the yard too. We usually have pink Day Lilies, but this year he wanted yellow. The bunnies love them.” Although Heidi likes to spend time in her yard, she

said that all the recent rain has made upkeep a little more difficult as well. “All the rain really washed everything out so it’s been harder this year,”Heidi said. However, this may be the last time the Longs will haveYard of the Month recognition, as Heidi said that she and her husband are looking to move into a smaller place, possibly on the Atlantic coast of Florida. “We’re thinking of something smaller,”Heidi said. “Maybe Orlando.”

Just a reminder that the Holley by the Sea Storm Water Task Force is still collecting drainage issue information. This is being done to document concerns within Holley by the Sea that will be provided to Santa Rosa County. The group will attend county meetings and act as a liaison group This will be an ongoing effort as the County Engineers work on a solution. Richard Harr was appointed chairman. You can email the group SWTF@holleybythesea.org . In the future we hope to have updates from the County’s efforts to report.

HBTSNEWS 5 THANK YOU DAN RAMSEY

May 2014

Thank you Dan Ramsey

I always thought Dan to be open and honest. To some openness may not what they want but I took to that as a sign of honesty. Dan serves his community with honesty and integrity. When Dan submitted his resignation I was shocked but understood that his health was the number one issue that needed attention .He put in countless hours both at Holley by the Sea and at home online with home owners issues. Dan is your big teddy bear with the heart of a lion. Dan is the person who goes out of his way to help others both in and out of our community. Dan is sick right now and now and needs our help I would ask anyone who reads this article to spend a moment of their time to remember Dan. Please give a prayer for his recovery and perhaps a short email saying thanks. Dan’s email: dan.ramsey@hotmail.co m Patrick J. Traynor

Ramsey answers and suggestions for this community's improvement even when he was openly attacked and berated by board members and former management. Dan has always chosen to "do the right thing" whether it would make him popular with anyone or not. I remember a remark was made as a derogatory slam against Dan that he was "the common man's hero" in HBTS. Dan certainly is a hero who has stood his ground, served the members and has pursued remedies and actions which have only benefited all of the members wellbeing. Holley by the Board Member Dan Ramsey was able to join the Fishing Club Christmas party after being in the hospital for more than 30 days. Dan is pictured above with his wife, Sheila (left), and his daughter, Megan.

8 HBTSNEWS GETTING ALONG WITH GATORS

May 2014

Report of an alligator sighting in HBTS By Bill Arnett HBTSnews.com A local social media post April 24 showed a picture of an alligator reportedly in a roadside ditch along Edgewood Drive north of Marlin Street. According to a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the best policy is to keep your distance and leave the alligator alone. “They can be anywhere and everywhere,”said FWC spokesman Stan Kirkland. According to the FWC, Florida is home to about 1.3 million alligators, and they can be found in all of Florida’s 67 counties. Kirkland said if a resident believes an alligator is at least 4-feet in length and a threat to people or property, which includes pets or livestock, then he or she should call the tollfree Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 1-866-392-4286. Kirkland said alligators smaller than 4-feet are generally not removed because they do not pose a serious threat to humans unless they are handled. “If conditions are met, then FWC contracts with a nuisance alligator trapper that is paid a small fee for their efforts,” Kirkland said.“The alligator is killed, not relocated, and the trapper makes his money selling the meat and hide.”

Getting along with gators Living Among Alligators by Israel Dupont Your odds of being attacked by an alligator in Florida, where most attacks occur, are about one in 24 million.Your odds of winning Florida's Lotto Jackpot are one million better.* So, if you learn more about alligators and apply it well, you improve your safety factor (and better your statistical odds at winning millions). So, chances are you'll never need to use the information on this page, but knowing it may give you some peace of mind and aid you in enjoying our shared environment safe-

ly.This information also offers a glimpse of the alligator's fascinating physiology and behavior that have enabled it to outlive the dinosaurs. Our ultimate goal should be to avoid conflict, but this can only be done if the self-aware, more intelligent species takes the initiative. It's not difficult.Here are twelve tips to aid you in doing so.

* Data sources: Florida Lottery; Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission A Dozen Safety Tips 1. Be aware on, in or near water. Never let children or pets near the water unsupervised. Did You Know? 90% of attacks occur on persons

wading or swimming at water's edge. 2. Never approach an alligator, including a baby or even a nest. The alligator is naturally wary of humans, and will flee quickly if you get too close to it, or it may utter a very audible and compelling warning hiss. In some cases, however, alligators may charge or attack. Did You Know? Most human attack victims are male - a whopping 84%. 3. Be extra-aware during the warmer seasons. Did You Know? 75% of attacks occur from MaySeptember. 4. Never feed or entice an alligator. 5. If you witness the feeding or enticing of a wild alli-

gator, report it to authorities. 6. Contact authorities if you suspect an alligator may pose danger. Generally, alligators may be considered a nuisance when they are at least four feet in length and pose a threat to people or their pets or property. However, occasionally alligators less than four feet in length are legitimate problems and must be addressed. Call the Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 1-866-FWCGATOR (1-866-392-4286). If an alligator less than four feet in length: • Approaches people • Does not retreat if approached • Is in a location that is not natural.

7. Create a barrier on your property, if necessary. 8. If charged by an alligator, run away, but NOT in 'zigzag' motion. 9. If attacked, fight back. 10. If bitten, seek medical attention immediately. 11. Never take an alligator from the wild or accept one as a pet 12. Share your knowledge of alligators with others. Sharing your knowledge of alligators and alligator safety contributes to public safety, and promotes a greater appreciation for the marvels of nature and to a better understanding of our place in it and how our enjoyment of it truly enhances our lives.

WELCOME SUMMER ‘14 HBTS Aquatics Seems like just yesterday (4-16) the temperature was around freezing and it was. So the aquatics staff at HBTS is ready to welcome back summer and all the HBTS members, guest and their families to our pools. The staff is a lot larger than you may think: first there are the Lifeguards, lead by head guard Glenn Kildare. Next we have Tom Pitts on maintenance, he is a licensed pool operator who does a great job. Marsha Triebold coaches the swim team (the Sting Rays) with volunteer help from husband Howard. The swim and water aerobics lead instructor is Laurie Pinter. Together we hope to make it enjoyable and SAFE for you at the HBTS pools. Within the last two years both the family and lap pools have been resurfaced, thank you for being patient while this was being done. Because of this and the outstanding work done by Tom we anticipate few or no pool closings this summer. We have some returning

guards anchoring our corps and several new ones. Please be patient with them, while we get them up to speed. All guards are American Red Cross Certified lifeguards. To ensure that we all are working as a team we will have many In Service Training sessions (IST’s). This will ensure that we can respond to any emergency at the pool. Our goal is to make sure that the members and guest at HBTS have a good time while keeping everyone safe. The way this is done is by enforcing all the safety and quality of life rules at the pools. Our lifeguards have full authority to enforce all the rules. Please remember“RULES DON’T PREVENT FUN THEY PREVENT INJURIES”. Here are some of the main rules: no running around the pools, no eating on the pool deck, no dives, flips and back entries into the pools, children not toilet trained must wear SWIMMIES covered by a swim suit, no glass objects on deck, no excessive rough play or pushing others into the pool. See pool rule signs

posted around the pool, if you have questions regarding the rules ask a guard. Our most important job is to ensure the safety of all who visit and use our pools. Your support and cooperation is appreciated. The ”STING RAYS”are our year round swim team and the summer is a great time to have the kids join. They may be our future Olympians. Marsha and Howard Triebold are certified coaches with the US Swimming (USS) and have been with our club for almost 10 years. The team’s great success is due to their outstanding coaching. Just look at the many team trophies in the trophy case. The team practices Monday thru Friday 3-5 PM. Laurie Pinter is our lead swim and water aerobics instructor. She is a certified Water Safety Instructor, and Lifeguard trainer by the American Red Cross. Laurie is responsible for training many children and adults in water safety and swimming over the years. Thanks for all you do.

Remember summer camp will be at the pool for several hours during the day Monday thru Friday. See schedule below. POOL SUMMER SCHEDULE Pool Hours: when facility opens to 8:45 PM. The pools will be closed and decks cleared during a thunderstorm. Camp schedule: Monday and Friday 2 to 4 PM (free swim) Tuesday and Thursday 10 AM to 12 PM (lessons) Wednesday 3:30 to 5 PM (free swim) Times subject to change due to weather and program needs Water aerobics: 8:30 to 9:30 AM Monday, Wednesday and Friday Swim Lessons: See information posted on wall near the front desk. Handouts are available at the front desk. We look forward to seeing all of you this summer. “GET INTO THE SWIM OF THINGS AND BE SAFE”

Shining Star Christine Bartnick

Holley by the Sea Shining Star Employee for 2014

Christine Bartnick is practically a fixture at the Holley by the Sea Recreation Center front office. She knows the regulars by name and greets all with a smile even knowing whether they are coming to swim, use the gym or take a dance class. This is because she cares. She has been with the association since April of 2004 as a guest services and front desk team member. Christine has recently proven by her own words that you can teach an old dog new tricks. FirstService Residential offers

an extensive curriculum of classes available via webinar for employees to advance their skills. Christine took the General Manager's challenge at recent staff meeting for each team member to complete a class before their annual reviews are completed. It became a contest with the entire team taking over 100 classes over a ten week period. Christine was the Shining Star who completed 50 classes with an above average test score. Please join us in congratulating her next time you're in the recreation center.

If owner has a Work Order already they can email or call for an update. If a storm has just occurred - Telephone calls and email problem reporting will be sorted and scheduled based on severity of your problem. With present high storm water occurrences It is taking about two months to get to non-priority problems. It should be noted that some problems will have to wait for Engineering study completion and Study physical construction work to begin before these special cases can be correctly addressed. With all the problems that have existed for 30 years - a total fix of HBTS water drainage problems will be years away. With that said – Santa Rosa County needs to know that you have a problem so that you are on the list to be considered for a fix. Without knowing all the problems a good fix is not possible. The above meeting summary is my opinion only. For official information call the above number. Richard Harr, Chairman of the Holley by the Sea Storm Water Taskforce SWTF@holleybythesea.org
