Seems like every town has one...
...someone who's got more money than he knows what to do with...

In Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, there is such an individual. He owns newspapers around the country. He's built a big rezzort which sits on the lakeshore, and you can't miss it; indeed, if you look anywhere near the lake, you can't help but see it. He's built a golf course on the lake. But not just any golf course; this one has a floating green. He has a yacht, he has a huge home in town, he has another huge home across the lake somewhere.

The offices of his international corporation, supported by massive pillars, stretch out into the lake alongside his rezzort. He's since built a huge home on a dry, parched mountaintop in California, waaay up there where everyone can see it. And who knows next, where he'll put down roots...could be anywhere...so don't be surprised to see bulldozers and earthmovers in your neck of the woods...or desert...


He's everywhere! He's everywhere! I found that out a couple of years back when I was staying in a motel in Brookings, Oregon. He publishes phonebooks, too. And a commercial for his phonebook aired on the little TV station down there. I'm not kidding!
