Unsung Heroes - Part 1

From Cincinnati.Com:

2 bodies recovered in lake

On Thursday, a couple from Idaho contacted by the Chippendale family arrived in Ohio to help with the search.

On Friday, underwater recovery experts Gene and Sandy Ralston dropped a line near the spot where the bodies were thought to be.

The couple's remote-operated vehicle, which is submersible, was to be used to remove the bodies from the lake's floor on Saturday, but it malfunctioned, Wisse said.

Two bodies, thought to be a father and son who disappeared on April 2 at Harsha Lake in East Fork State Park, were recovered Saturday.

A team of divers from Columbus pulled the bodies from the murky water at 11:48 a.m. and 12:25 p.m.

Family members of Charles E. Chippendale, 74, of Franklin and Scott E. Chippendale, 38, of Lebanon were on the scene Saturday for the recovery effort.
Sandy and Gene Ralston, a husband and wife team, search for drowning victims using state-of-the-art equipment. I know the Ralston's were instrumental in pinpointing the precise location of the father and son who were recovered in Harsha Lake through images that were sent to them.

While posters at "The Pound" were busy maligning reputations, making baseless accusations, and fictitiously posting under a "nic" he once used, Mr. Ralston was oblivious to it all since he was off doing what he does best... bringing closure to a distraught family by locating and assisting in the recovery of their loved ones.

A job well done, Team Ralston!

Sophisticated sonar helps solve drowning cases
Thursday, July 05, 2007
Theodore Decker

The southern Ohio lake had kept its secret for two months. Then a sonar image sent to a man 1,700 miles away shed light on the mystery.

"Hey, come look at this," Gene Ralston, 62, said to his wife, Sandy. "I think we’ve got ’em."

Ralston’s excitement centered on two irregularities in an otherwise unremarkable stretch of the bottom of East Fork Lake. The untrained eye might have overlooked the shapes or perhaps written them off as rocks or debris. But when it comes to finding drowning victims using side-scan sonar, the Ralstons of Idaho are as skilled as they come.

The Ralstons recovered their first drowning victim in 1983. They began using side-scan sonar about seven years ago and have recovered 50 bodies using the technology. The semi-retired couple spends more than half the year on the road, trying to bring closure to victims’ families. They ask only that their basic expenses be paid.

"Equipment is one thing, but knowing how to use it and interpret images is really the key," Ralston said. "The trick, I guess, is to use it enough so that you’re familiar with what a body is going to look like under all kinds of conditions."

Mark Enz, a friend of the Chippendales’, took five weeks off work during the search. He said the bodies would still be in the lake if not for the Ralstons. They joined the search at the family’s request.

"They were going to have a water grave," Enz said. "Gene’s a phenomenal dude. He’s the best, him and Sandy."

Update! From: WISCTV.COM

Out-Of-State Team Searching For Missing Boater Finds Drowning Victim

It wasn't exactly what they came to Wisconsin for, but the Idaho Mountain Search and Rescue Unit did help recover a missing body over the weekend. The group initially made the 1,500-mile journey to continue searching for a boater missing since 2005, WISC-TV reported.

Chris Dickinson and Darren Mellor were on Lake Mendota when they went missing in July 2005. Mellor's body surfaced weeks later, but Dickinson's body has never been found.

The Idaho Mountain Search and Rescue Unit is a non-profit group that started in 1983. It consists of Gene and Sandy Ralston. The two employ hi-tech side-scan sonar techniques from their boat in recovery efforts.

This weekend's visit was supposed to continue the search for Dickinson, but when word spread that another drowning had occurred, the Dickinson's told the Ralston's to help another family in need.

On Sunday morning, the Ralston's efforts helped recover the body of Cory Walker, WISC-TV reported. Walker, a 26-year-old Madison resident, went missing Saturday night. The side scan sonar located his body in less than 15 hours.


For these searchers, 'it's something in our hearts'

The semi-retired environmental consultants came at the request of Bernice and Darrell Dickinson. Their son, Christopher Dickinson, 25, of Ridgeway, disappeared along with his friend Darren Mellor, 25, of Brooklyn, on July 31, 2005, while boating on Lake Mendota. Mellor turned up three months later, but Dickinson still has not been found.

This weekend, their mission was to find Dickinson, but with his family's permission, they interrupted the search Sunday to help the Dane County Sheriff's Office find Cory Walker, 26, who drowned while boating with friends Saturday.

Walker was the 50th victim the Ralstons have found since 2000, when they bought their side scan sonar system.

Sandy Ralston said families of drowning victims often contact them for help after law enforcement gives up searching for the body. She and her husband sleep in campgrounds and only accept enough payment to cover their travel expenses.

"We just don't think that the families should be burdened with that type of expense," Gene Ralston said. "It's something in our hearts that tells us it's something we should do."

Bernice Dickinson, Christopher's mother, said the family was anonymously given the Ralstons' contact information earlier this month.

"I got hold of them and I was so happy," she said. "They are wonderful, loving people.

A Visit from Google

At first I found it amusing that Google paid an impromptu visit to this site on June 11:

Country: United States
Region: California
City: Mountain View
ISP: Google Inc
Returning Visits: 0
Visit Length: 3 mins 12 secs

But then the following caught my eye:

11th June 2007 02:27:45 PM - No referring link:

11th June 2007 02:28:41 PM -

I couldn't figure out why Google would search for Shina on this site since the 6/18/06, 7/10/06, and 11/6/06 entries represent factual events according to Shina. But then I learned the following mandate had been posted at "The Pound":

"Please use the following link to report the abuse of Charlene V. of bloggers' hall of shame - -SayNo2Abuse 06.11.07 - 2:43 am

Apparently, Shina Hart not only has difficulty grasping the intracies of what violates Blogger's "TOS" policy, but her reading comprehension is as deficient as that of the following author:

"Okay Lola, you've had "your" say. Leave it at that and enjoy life away from The Pound. -BG Baby Girl 06.07.07 - 2:45 pm

I wonder what went through the Google rep's mind as he/she scanned entries in support of Shina's vociferous claims indicating Anne (Curi) from Brazil and Loretta Serrano were stalking the poor 'sweet' girl? I wonder if the rep followed through with a search of "Shina Hart" on the WWW and subsequently identified 'abuse' of Blogger's TOS:

"You agree to not use the Service to: (a) upload, post or otherwise transmit any Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable; (b) harm minors in any way; (c) impersonate any person or entity, including, but not limited to, a Pyra official, forum leader, guide or host, or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity;"

For the record isn't anything like what Loretta Serrano claims.

Shina Hart Good Girl February 15,2007 03:33 GMT
Isn't she sweet!


I wonder what Google reps discuss at the water cooler?

It’s interesting to note that Shina’s boisterous conflict with Loretta Serrano kicked into high gear AFTER Shina betrayed her friends. What's more riveting is the fact that Ms. Hart’s ‘tribute blog’ continued to be locked up tight as the shrew generated digital baggage by habitually documenting her boorish, chronic grievances with Loretta around the WWW. All the while twelve other ‘spite blogs’ created by the misfitting team remained active.

Something to think about.

And if google searched images, they'd find the following:

I wonder what this one is about?

Attention: Francesca aka Baby Girl!

On June 9, 2007 at 5:10 AM a voice message was recorded from a person identifying herself as Francesca. The call was placed from area code (828). The caller demanded a return call within 15 minutes. Any call made at such an unreasonable hour has no other purpose than to harass, abuse, and annoy residents at the address the call was made to.

Baby Girl aka Francesca, owner of: , you are hereby requested to STOP making unwanted phone calls to the private dwelling where the message was recorded. Any future phone calls to the referenced domicile will be reported to the “Unlawful Call Center” at 1-877-TRACE4U. Call Trace will provide essential information to authorities if an investigation is required.

This nonsense stops NOW, Francesca Franzese!

Consider yourself notified.


When someone inserts the "F" word eighteen times in an email and ends the correspondence with:

Subject: Re: I'm surprised
Date: Tuesday, May 1, 2007 1:45:11 AM

Again, whatever...I'm done with you and your shit. Pass this around as your proof of my evilness and my lies and whatever you want to add to it. But don't contact me again.

It constitutes abuse when the person addressed did NOT make email contact again, yet a phone call was made to that person's home over a month later at 5:10 AM leaving instructions to return the call within fifteen minutes.

Obviously, the following comments were published for show:

"Okay Lola, you've had "your" say. Leave it at that and enjoy life away from The Pound. -BG Baby Girl 06.07.07 - 2:45 pm"

It's a shame "Baby Girl" couldn't "leave it at that".

I thought Francesca possessed a modicum of intelligence, but I was mistaken.

Let's make one thing perfectly clear for the benefit of those whose physical fitness program consists of jumping to conclusions and flying off the handle.

The recorded voice message categorically cannot be perceived as a "friendly" call considering the unreasonable hour, the insolent demeanor, the blaring voice, and the demanding context of the message. Rational people with good intent DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT make calls to a landline phone and disturb the residents of a private household at that hour of the morning. Anyone who defends or approves of this behavior is as ignorant as the person that did it.


It appears Francesca doesn't comprehend English!

Voice mail #2 after being told in no uncertain terms to STOP calling!

6/19/07 @ 3:39 AM: "Ah would really like to work this out with you, but um, if you don't want to that's fine. Anyway, um, Ah don't know what's happening, Ah really don't. Um. If Ah can help y'all with whatever you've got going on let me know, but, um, Ah'm tired and Ah don't want this crap to continue..."

Hello? Francesca Franzese needs the clue phone, STAT!

N.C. Gen. Stat. § 14-196. Using profane, indecent or threatening language to any person over telephone; annoying or harassing by repeated telephoning or making false statements over telephone. 1913. Amended 2000.

FACT: I participated in two 3-way conference calls with Francesca and Shina over FIVE months ago. Those calls were pre-approved, made at a decent hour, and Francesca did MOST of the talking. The sum and substance of one call was fundamentally disturbing.

FACT: My FINAL post at TP was "Attention: Francesca" on 6/9/07 and she KNOWS it!

FACT: I was away 6/16 & 6/17, and from 6/20 through 6/22. No computer and no cable. I WILL NOT have my family disturbed by harassing phone calls at unacceptable hours by an airhead who doesn't know when to quit! Particularly a person who describes herself as:

"I call myself a dingy, click-clacking, clumsy slut"!
-Francesca Franzese 5/1/07 @1:45 AM (email)

Enough is enough!

FYI: There's a reputable company that performs a unique service by recording voice mails onto CD or cassette at a reasonable price. A copy of the recording is retained in their studios temporarily. They also enclose a very nice key ring with the package.

Is this a great country, or what?
