Famous People Living in The Villages
On another thread a retired AF General who had responsibilities for Air Force 1 at one time was brought up. It got me wondering about famous or significantly interesting people that have lived (past or present) in The Villages.
I don't know anybody that fits that bill on a national level, but I recently learned that a well know radio personality from where I moved in Upstate NY now lives here in TV and works part time on weekends for The Villages Radio Station. He also does parade announcing and private parties as a DJ, including weddings. I had hired him a few time back in NY for Halloween parties. His name is Ric Mitchell.
So my question for this thread is, who lives or has lived here in TV that was famous or well known, at least on a regional level? I remember a few being mentioned in the past, but I'm sure there must be more!
ARE VILLAGERS OLD OR ARE THEY RECYCLED TEENAGERS At my age rolling out of bed in the morning is easy.
Getting up off the floor is another story.

Nancy Lopez and Ray Knight (part-timers)
Who is the Shadow?? I do see someone on TOTV with that name but have no idea who this is.
I was famous in a circle for about 15 seconds back in 1989 at the American Association of Law Libraries meeting back in Reno, Nevada as the cataloguer of all the WESTLAW computer files. This was for a national project working in conjunction with the SUNY at Buffalo which was doing the LEXIS computer files.
Going back to Reno, Nevada in 1989 brought back a lot of memories of my searching for materials in Reno area libraries for materials to help out survivors of violent and other crimes stemming from my personal connection to the February 24, 1976 murder of Michelle Mitchell near the University of Nevada, Reno campus. Michelle Michelle was the daughter of my then high school English teacher, Barbara Mitchell, in 1976 and February 24 is also my birthday.
I tried to use my WESTLAW computer cataloger status to help survivors/victims of crimes by getting practical materials for them into various kinds of libraries. I had many successes from 1992 onward but probably just as many failures with getting practical materials into libraries of all types.
Had 24 nominations to Marquis Who's Who publications from 1992 through 2002. Also got a letter from Hillary Clinton, then First Lady, that she was going to help me with this by doing something about this niche with respect to practical information for survivors of crimes by putting this into her Health Care Reform efforts.
