Even though the meeting slide said “Out of Town,” in fact Finemaster Bob Harbicht was not, so Brent Forsee didn’t escape. Brent had already given a short recommendation in support of local Measure A funding Arcadia schools which made the Finemaster’s job easier. Brent was recognized for 45 cents per second times 73 seconds which, after consulting with Jim Rider for some “Rider Math,” was settled at $50.
Helping with fine calculations didn’t keep Jim Rider safe from being the next to be recognized. He had a long list of opportunities: purchasing a “new” 10-year-old Jeep, purchasing a cabin in Big Bear, his granddaughter turning one year old. He also gave the Finemaster clues to future opportunities with his daughter getting married on April 1 and a second grandchild on the way. All those opportunities only earned Jim a fine of $25.
Richard Shulhof was recognized for the Arboretum’s fundraiser in October of 2016 which was covered in a big newspaper spread that Finemaster Bob said he’s been carrying around for a while. This successful event raised $130,000 gross in support of the Arboretum and Richard was fined 45 cents per thousand. Rider math calculated this fine as $45.50.
