Before I get anymore emails about service arrangements for Mike Blatus, I want to thank you all who have contacted me.  He was a very well loved advocate, albeit unseen to the general public, unless you were at the City Counsel meetings in Vero when he was fighting a new beach restoration project.  :)

Arrangements have been made, and it seems that some of his coworkers at Trans Global had incorrect information as of last night.  Services are described in the announcement below, for those local and interested in attending.  I hope to speak on his behalf; I do not think his parents, in charge of the arrangements, really know of his positive impact on people and the environment alike, because of what he tried to do for the worm reefs off Indian River County.

Again, thank you to all of you that have contacted me.  Please continue to do so if you have any stories about Mikey that you would like to share.

With a heavy heart,
Trish Hunt
