This is for a friend of ours. We have known this family for many years. The father was our Scout leader for several years and we watched Megan and her brother grow up. It is a great tragedy for Megan and her remaining family. Last Friday, she was shot by her boyfriend and her father and twin babies were murdered in a case of domestic violence. She is recovering and currently in stable condition but has many more months of pain ahead of her. I know many of my G+ friends do not know her but the family is now facing medical bills for her recovery and the burials for three family members. Anything you can give is greatly appreciated.

As most of you may know, Megan Rose Hiatt is currently in the hospital fighting for her life. As updates are given to me I will post them on this page granted that the family has not specifically asked something to not be shared. All the funds given will go towards the expense of medical bills an...

Yes, we do have a python problem in the Everglades. But now there is one less.  http://www.cnn.com/videos/us/2015/11/10/alligator-python-photo-florida-dnt-wftx.wftx

This video was made by my wife while she was working on her Masters in Education a few years ago. It is Seminole Wind with images from the Everglades area. https://youtu.be/ub7nZiR3BDo

Here is a great TED Talk about the wonderful natural beauty of the natural areas in Florida, especially the Everglades. I am so glad the be leading the USFWS efforts to conserve and restore some of these areas.

Story
Introduction
I am actively involved in church, Boy Scouts, and family history. I enjoy teaching people about their environment, how cultural biases influence our views of the world around us and how those views have changed over time. I also enjoy teaching and speaking on genealogy related topics. I am interested in trying out new tech toys, beta testing software and websites, and doing random research on many other topics. My current job is working on the restoration of the Everglades ecosystem.


Suggestions for Circles I would like to be involved in are Genealogy, LDS, Environment, Technology, Android Users, Scouting, as well as others.

Family names I am researching are Westerheide, Bielefeld, Wesner, Walker, Meyer, Mescher, Garman, Wise, Coker, Stueve, Bruns, Lexow, Reeder, LeBoeuf, Vickery and many others.
Bragging rights
I have a wonderful family who are involved in church and Scouting. My son earned his Eagle and Order of the Arrow at the age of 14.

Working with David Rome and Ted Busetto on our purchase of a Chevy Volt was a great experience. They gave us the time to test the vehicle and answered all our questions. We had been looking at several other cars and decided to try the internet sales department at George Moore instead of just getting the first sales person that saw us drive up. That was the right choice to make and resulted in less pressure from the sales people. David was prompt in responding to our internet request. One of your fellow dealers took about a week to respond to a request that was sent at the same time. We worked with Nate Bailey on the financing and payments. That took several days to finally get a correct contract. There were always numbers or math errors that could not be explained. We eventually got to a point where we agreed upon the contract. Even though we had problems with the contracts we enjoyed talking to Nate and he was always friendly.
