If you watched the NFL yesterday, or had your head in social media, the world was consumed by professional athletes not standing- or in the case of the Pittsburgh Steelers (save one)- not appearing for The Star Spangled Banner.

A local web publication instituted the Brevard Public Service Hall of Fame as a benefit to the Brevard Public Service Charity. While there are many good folks around Brevard, as well as some public safety professionals honored, this dog and pony show tarnished every other award they handed out by issuing an Exceptional Citizen Award to Palm Shores Mayor Carol McCormack. This appears to be nothing more than an attempt at political rehabilitation of her severely damaged reputation. The mayor accepted funds she legally could not and then allowed her town to repay the ill gotten gain, thus ensuring the taxpayers were stuck twice while the mayor enriched herself on their backs.
