Today’s Briefing: Quick Links

“Dictators come in many forms. Some are religious maniacs, and some total cynics; some are mama’s boys with a lust to dominate, and some are compelled by a higher cause or mission; some wish to be worshiped as gods, some just want to be feared, and most are probably a mixture of all these things. But they all have one quality in common: striving for absolute power consigns them to a world of lies. And one is tempted to assume that if a dictator such as, say, Mao Zedong really believed his own press—that he was the greatest genius who ever lived, the greatest statesman, general, scientist, poet, or whatnot—he would surely be a madman.”

–Ian Buruma in the New York Review of Books, May 13, 2004.

Announcements:

Flagler County Veterans Services Office closed May 7-11 to allow the team to attend annual training. The training, which is conducted by the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs, is required for re-certification as an accredited representative who is recognized by the U.S. of Veterans Affairs to assist veterans and their families with their interactions before the VA. “Veterans who need assistance should try to make arrangements to meet with us this week, or when our offices reopen on May 14,” said Veterans Services Officer David Lydon. Representatives are trained to help veterans understand and apply for any VA benefits they may be entitled to including: compensation, education, vocational rehabilitation and employment, home loans, life insurance, pension, health care, and burial benefits. Flagler County Veterans Services Office is a professional resource offered to all members of the armed forces of the United States – former, present, and future – including those with disabilities, whether service connected or not.

The Online auction to benefit the G.W. Carver Center in Bunnell is now open. Art Work, Local Experiences, Restaurant Gift Cards, Baskets, FCYC Summer Camp Registration & Trip Specials, Window Cleaning, Kayaking Tour, Furniture, World Wide Time Share, Camping Rentals, and the list goes on and on. The purpose of the auction is to raise money to go back into the development of the Carver Center. The Flagler County School Board and Flagler County Government have both owned and managed the facility over the years. Due to budgetary constraints it appeared it would be necessary to close the facility in 2010. A coalition was born to save the Gym and restore it as a community center. Our foundation was created to serve this facility with grant funding and equipment/supply needs. In order to participate in this auction you must register for a bidder account here. On the last day of the auction if a bidder submits a bid in the last 3 minutes before auction closes that item will extend for another 3 minutes and that process will repeat for up to a half hour the official close. Go bid here. If you have any questions please contact us via email at auction@carverfoundation.org
