Fame in our midst!!!!
« on: January 10, 2008, 06:37:48 PM »
So there I was at the gym at 5:00 today on the eliptical machine, and up on the tv's channel 8 was running a story on the horrible crash that happened yesterday on I-4.

So they were talking about the fires that may have contributed to the dense fog, and they brought up the big fire that burned in the North Port area a few years ago, and then right there on the screen was our resident pyro dude (FIREBIKER)talking about controlled burns and stuff.

My excitement to see a friend on tv was quickly quelled though as the next story was about Debra Lavauve. She looked better too! ;)



So there ya go Jay, youre 15 minutes starts now.  tick tick tick :)

Yeah. Part of my job is media relations. This time of year I'm on the tube alot.
But why didn't I have teachers like Debra when I was in school? :(

We see the world not as it is, but as we are.

That's funny. You know that's how it was in her class too.

I work for the Fire Dept. and I oversee the prescribed burn program for the County. I also am responsible for responding to wildfires. I am one of two people that do the job in Sarasota Co.

You should be able to find it on TBO from yesterday's broadcast.  I think it listed it as "controlled burns" or something like that.
