NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. -- Longtime Southeast Volusia Advertising Authority employees Myriah Chandler and Sherry Hendershot continually relive in their minds the day they were fired from their jobs at the New Smyrna Beach Visitors Center, each separately escorted from the premises by a sheriff's deputy in plain clothes, with holstered semi-automatic handgun attached to his belt.

"I was made to feel like a criminal," Chandler told HeadlineSurfer.com.

Added Hendershot: "I continue to have nightmares about it like it's just a bad dream, but it happened to me -- to us. It was real and they could care less, knowing that they took our livelihoods away. It' a corrupt government takeover because they want to control the bed-tax money."
