The Honor Roll 2022

Hi, kids!

“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been.”

― Rainer Maria Rilke

Where does the time go?

Each year, I like to recognize those intrepid souls who, in my cynical opinion, either contributed to our quality of life – or detracted from it – in some significant way as we proudly unveil the 2022 Barker’s View Honor Roll!

In coming weeks, the annual Halifax area rubber chicken banquet season will be in full swing. 

That time of the year when various chambers of commerce, political organizations, and exclusive civic clubs dress up in their finery and bestow honors and accolades on all the right last names while We, The Little People sit in gridlocked traffic wondering how in the hell anyone could take credit for…this.  

However dubious, the Barker’s View Honor Roll remains the only prize in Volusia County that our “Rich & Powerful” cannot buy!

No, this honor is reserved for youall of you – from the gilded Halls of Power to the thousands of strapped families trying desperately to find safe and affordable housing on a warehouse workers wage.   

From our social, civic, and economic elite – the ‘movers and shakers’ with outsized influence – to us lowly rubes who struggle desperately to eke out a living and raise families in this weird artificial economy – we all have a personal stake in improving our quality of life here on Florida’s fabled Fun Coast

That proposition has become increasingly difficult in an era when elected bodies are little more than elaborate rubber stamps – malleable marionettes who enact rules to prevent substantive citizen engagement and interaction – a time when addressing The Monarchy for redress of grievances is a frustrating exercise in futility as the important decisions are predetermined by influential insiders and laundered through political insulation committees long before the choreographed theater of a public meeting.   

Don’t take my word for it. 

Take time out of your busy workday to attend a meeting of the Volusia County Council – approach your elected officials on the dais of power – and see if they acknowledge your physical presence, let alone answer your questions. . . 

As a result, the prevailing ‘Us vs. Them’ mentality has many rightly convinced that we deserve better from those who control our fate and are increasingly willing to speak truth to power.   

Thank you.

You are my heroes.

I honor all who fight the good fight – those who stand for elective office for the right reasons and endure the slings and arrows of harsh criticism, the administrators and career civil servants who have devoted their lives to public service, the watchers, the informed voters, and dedicated gadflies who so courageously let their voice be heard – and those of us up here in the cheap seats who pay the bills and suffer in silence.

Thank you.

To those hardworking civic activists who struggle valiantly to protect our natural places, improve amenities, preserve our unique traditions, keep our history alive, and enhance our quality of life – from committed environmentalists and those who fight for animal rights to beach driving supporters, smart growth advocates, and beyond – your dedication and perseverance is inspiring.   

Thank you.

I never lose sight of the fact that the opinions of cynical blowhards like me do not matter.

As Roosevelt said, the real credit belongs to those “who are actually in the arena” – who spend themselves in a worthy cause – the grassroots efforts of neighborhood organizations, the philanthropists who give so generously, and the volunteers who form the very backbone of our community.

Thank you.

Seven years ago, I launched Barker’s View as one man’s soapbox, a place to vent my jaundiced spleen and provide an alternative opinion on the news and newsmakers in Central Florida – neither always right, nor always wrong.

I could never have imagined how many of you would take the time to read, welcome a unique perspective, and consider these diatribes for what they are – and what they are not.

Thanks to your engagement, this blog continues to open doors, shine a light, and influence opinion – and I appreciate the opportunity to meet and correspond with so many wonderful people – including a few of those “power brokers” and politicians I take to the woodshed – some of whom still have the humility and sense of humor to laugh at themselves and our collective situation.

While I cannot know the hundreds-of-thousands of you who have visited this site – including readers from some 87 countries around the globe this year alone – I appreciate each of you for taking the time to connect with Barker’s View.   

Thank you.

Invariably, whenever I meet Barker’s View readers – you are incredibly kind to me – and take the time to offer your own unique perspective on the issues, point out where we agree or differ, provide constructive criticism, and give suggestions for future content.   

Thank you.

To everyone who reached out this year, stopped to chat in the grocery aisle, wrote a note, or sat down next to me on a barstool to discuss the world’s problems, pass along gossip, commiserate, share a joke, argue a fine point, or just lend a word of encouragement.

Thank you.

I appreciate that more than you know.  

The problem with making lists is you will invariably (and inadvertently) omit someone most deserving, and if I have overlooked your contributions, please forgive me – it was not intentional.

Please let me know where I fell short.  The mistake is mine alone.

While this Honor Roll is not all inclusive, it begins and ends with YOU.

Those who read, contribute, opine, comment, argue, agree, disagree, disparage, elevate, share, offer solutions, moderate a social media site, participate in politics, educate our children, speak out, campaign for public office, serve on an advisory board, plan for our future, offer criticism, demand accountability, serve their community, care for the sick and infirm, risk their lives to save others, raise the bar, give generously, provide hope and encouragement – political allies and foes alike – anyone who can still be my friend when the heated debate is over.

Thank you.

Most of all, to the faithful readers of Barker’s View – the independent thinkers who analyze and contemplate my warped thoughts on the myriad issues of the day – and those who further a larger discussion in the community, an important exercise that can lead to innovative ideas and solutions to the problems we face.

Thank you.

You are making a difference!

The Good Lord willing, in the coming year, I will be here – spectating from the Peanut Gallery – cocktail in hand – a rheumy-eyed witness to the machinations of our local players, power brokers, and politicians – providing you, the devoted members of the Barker’s View Tribe, with one man’s jaded opinion on the important issues that affect our lives and livelihoods.

Thank you all.  May God bless each of you and this beautiful place we call home.

That’s all for me in 2022, y’all!

Here’s wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!

  1. Way too many RIPs on here…

    I see you still have my “alternate personality” (psycho magnet) on your list but FYI I used that name on my work email; I left my employment of 20.5 years in June this year; perhaps I should start a blog???

    Thank you so very much for sharing your views on our local news, both the good and the bad. I appreciate Barker’s View and I’m always happy to see it in my inbox!

    Let’s hope 2023 brings some goodwill towards people! I’m so tired of people being mean. It’s totally unacceptable and has become part of our culture. Your views are refreshing (mostly lol) and I am grateful for you!

    Happy new year!

  2. As was last years listing, an interesting post of more names than I have knowledge of. I’ve lived on the west side of the county for most of 69 years and have no knowledge about most of those listed. I believe it could be good to deliver to your readers a very short description as to your knowledge about one person on the list somewhere on your regular publications. That would be nothing other than some point of reference. One person at a time from the list. I expect you don’t know everyone on the list.

  3. We have not yet had the opportunity to meet, hopefully this new year brings that opportunity. I would love the opportunity to buy you a drink and discus the many woes of our community. Being a county resident just outside the dysfunctional City of Deltonabut being directly impacted by the poor decisions made by them I share your disdain for inept municipal governance / management.

    We share the same concerns over development in this county and having spent my career in real estate development and constructionI allows me the perspective of seeing both sides of the coin. Development is inevitable and the rights of the individual to seek out the highest and best use for their land (investment) is where to development conundrum begins. When it comes to development, there is the matrix of what is legal, what is “right” and what is responsible, seldom do the three align. Deltona is the prime example of a bad plan poorly executed. You know as well as I that residential development does not pay it’s own way via impact fees and property taxes, yet Deltona leadership (with the exception of a few) seems to think that” more is better”, despite’s impact on an antiquated infrastructure.

    We share the same concerns for the protection of our environmental resources, My favorite debacle is the mistake by the lake, again, another Deltona disaster. Not sure you are aware or up to speed on the project that was intended to draw millions of gallons of water from Lake Monroe to be treated and pumped into the aquifer. It has been dormant for months while they try to figure out how to “fix” the multiple artesian wells that were breached during construction. Who would have thought excavating deep holes along the shoreline and in Lake Monroe would have stood a chance of encountering such conditions!? Conveniently all those associated with the project have since left the City and the esteemed Mr. Chisolm elected to lie to citizens at a community meeting on how this project was a necessity for the City or they risked being in violation of their Conditional Use Permit with St. Johns and could not answer any questions regarding cost etc. If you aren’t familiar with this particular disaster I’d encourage you to look into it

    Might require several drinks……

    Keep it coming

  4. Happy New Year to you Mark and Your Family. I look so forward to your twice weekly blogs. Your writing style is so impressive. Besides that positive attribute, you hit the nail on the head. I’m still amazed at what happened to voting this past election after so many of our family and neighbors repeated the disaster of over development. They voted the big money sponsored people into office. What were people thinking. After reviewing the national results too, people are responsible for who they vote in. It seems like they all deserve the stupidity and destruction coming.

    Again Happy New Year and thank you so much for your opinion and insight.
