system that keeps things from falling through the cracks. He has innovated page design,gotten our site to be recognizable by search engines and other technical aspects which Ididn’t even know we needed. But he did. And he has done a magnificent job of managingall of our efforts to produce a simple-to-use, yet comprehensive site. Miracles truly dohappen. Last, but certainly not least, came 23-year old Cory Chlapowski. I mether father, Van, in the alley behind the Fire station (he is a SPBfirefighter). He complimented me on the site and I said, “Yeah, well findme someone to RUN it!” His face immediately changed and he said,“Well, my daughter is looking for her first job this very day--she justgraduated from college,” and I said, “Well send her to me.” By 1 p.m. Cory was hired and we haven’t looked back since. I knew I had hit on a winner one day early on when I was sitting at the computer showing her how to do somethingcomplicated and she said, “That’s alright Cleo, I’ll figure it out.” And she did and has,again and again and again. It is Cory’s voice you hear on the phone, cordial, helpful andfull of spirit. Cory has learned the database and entered all the businesses into it, she posts all the articles, puts together the videos, answers all questions and keeps a smile onher face the whole time. It is because of Cory that I could leave for two weeks to go toSanoviv Health Institute for my annual health check up. At the current time the cost of funding the development and management of the site has been covered by private funding. It is hoped that as “supporters,” those businesses whostand to benefit the most from the site, see the benefit of their presence on the map, thatthey will pay the $110 per year for the link to their website, etc. It is only by theinvolvement of the businesses that this site will continue to grow. In the future I will share some of my travel experiences, snorkeling trips up and downPAG beach, and other things I hope you will find of interest.This is the first “Corner” we are making available to you. But others will follow. SallyYoder, who also grew up in Pass-a-Grille, will write articles about our history (Sally isDirector of the Gulf Beaches Historical Museum located on 10th avenue in PAG).
