Why does Hernando Public Safety director not pay with job?

Why does chief not pay with job?

Hernando Public Safety director Mike Nickerson faces discipline for what he says he is "partly at fault." At least Animal Service worker Michael Steele sees his faults and resigns after his second screwup.

So how do I get a job with the county? It, appears to me you can screw up big time more than once and still keep your job. With all the competent people needing a job, maybe Nickerson needs to go apply at the federal prison.

A gem of nature, Chinsegut Hill at risk | Sept. 23 Dan DeWitt column

Chinsegut manse well worth saving

Columnist Dan DeWitt continues in his efforts to save Chinsegut with that beautiful antebellum mansion in Brooksville.

As a student at the University of South Florida, a friend of mine and I attended a weekend retreat there. They told us the legend of the ancient oak nearby and we walked the entire grounds. It is such a wonderful bit of old Florida.

We once had a visitor from Syracuse who was thrilled to read the moss-covered gravestones in the cemetery, something that many locals don't even know about.

That old manse seemed to exude history. How sad to lose it.

The university has attempted, over the years, to raise awareness and money for this landmark.

Is there a group, particularly in Hernando or Pasco, who can take up this cause? I'll bet it's still possible to do it.
