Hey Spike talks to ‘TSA Hottie No. 4’

Special to the Daily Lynn Myers of Silverthorne was surprised to find her TSA photo wound up online.

You just can’t make this stuff up. Summit County Chamber of Commerce President Mark Nunn, who’s an adviser for Edwards Jones financial services, recently told Hey, Spike!, “Do I have a story for you.”And does he.What does the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) do with pictures collected at those controversial body scan machines in airports? Are they electronically deleted or securely stored? Apparently not – in some cases. Attractive females who catch the attention of certain TSA agents are being recorded, and their pictures are showing up on the Internet.Interior designer Lynn Myers, a Silverthorne resident and striking blonde who owns Harmony Interiors in Frisco, apparently made the grade on a recent trip to Florida. Here’s the story with contributions made by Mark and Katie Novak of Edward Jones, and CPA Larry Stone and wife Nancy:Larry was watching streaming video from a Denver media outlet and noticed an Internet site labeled as “TSA Hotties.” Upon investigation he found Lynn’s picture displayed as Hottie #4. “Mark caught wind about this story from Larry, Nancy and Lynn at his office Christmas party. He loved it so much he asked Lynn’s permission to submit an article about this with the picture to the SDN,” Lynn recalls.”Hey, Spike! you hit the nail on the head: “It’s nice to be thought of as good looking, but I did think it was rather weird and sort of creepy in addition to being a backhanded compliment.” More of Lynn’s reaction: “I felt it was an invasion of my privacy. Now I know how celebrities feel when the paparazzi is secretly taking their pictures for magazine publications without their permission.””The moral of the story is ladies, always remember to smile and look your best as you raise your arms and twirl inside those machines. You never know where your picture might end up,” Mark advises.For Lynn there’s a good chance of this scene being replayed because she travels frequently to the Sunshine State’s Estero to visit husband Steve, who prefers golf over skiing.****Independent insurance consultant Tim Cardamon is a happy guy. His daughters are successful out on the West Coast and now he’s a granddad.Melissa graduated in 1999 from Summit High and in ’03 from Colorado State University, with a degree in business marketing.Sister Emily is an ’04 SHS diploma-holder, who also earned a marketing degree from the Fort Collins school, hers in ’07. Tim says Melissa used to be with Boston Market’s Northern California catering sales, but is now a stay-at-home mom. Emily just left San Francisco after three years and started with Target as an executive team leader in human resources.Melissa and husband Aaron Zielke had boy, Austin, on Feb. 6. They live in Rancho Cordova. Emily now lives in Folsom, just a ways down US 50.”Everyone’s doing great,” says the single Tim, who lives on Dillon’s Lookout Ridge. Congrats.****Susie Magrino and Kathy Grotemeyer once again joined those three original “Minkie” Sisters – Deb Crook, Martha Moran and Sue O’Connor – on their annual ski outing. Deb, Sue and Martha were on the Breckenridge Ski Patrol together back in the ’80s. This year’s trip was to Utah, where the girls were able to find some fresh “pow pow” at Powder Mountain, Deer Valley, Alta and Snowbird.Also out that way were Seth Bartley, Nick Pollard and Todd Casey, who hooked up a “global group of buddies” and stayed at Jeff Fort’s family “compound” while they skied Alta and Snowbird.****In a sad note, AJ Grande of Walt Grande Real Estate reports her mother, Alice Shipp, passed away recently in Canon City.Spike was attending Adams State in Alamosa when Alice was staffing the college public affairs office and as editor of the school’s newspaper, we had worked well together.Alice was a great lady. When she retired in 1987, after 25 years at ASC they made her an “honorary alum.”****Congrats to Wendy Yates on marking the first anniversary with her Colorado Design Center.****Heads up: March 1 opening of Chizzled Fitness & Climbing Club at Silverthorne’s Bighorn Center.Call 406-8333 or write doreen.kaplan@hotmail.com ••••Miles F.
