Lacy and I are officially residents of Bradenton, FL. We haven’t been there in two years, traveling as we do from one contract to another. But that’s where we keep a place rented to park the trailer when we are “home”.

So now there’s this AP piece in the Denver Post:

Balloon-boy family alights in Florida

“FORT COLLINS — The family at the center of the balloon-boy hoax has moved out of the house where the fateful trip began, leaving Colorado for Florida.

“Richard and Mayumi Heene and their three boys have moved to Bradenton, Fla., where Richard Heene will continue working in construction, state court officials said.

“On Oct. 15, the couple reported that their 6-year-old son had floated away in a homemade, UFO-shaped helium balloon, touching off a scramble of dozens of emergency responders and two Colorado National Guard helicopters.

“The boy wasn’t on the balloon and was later found at his home in Fort Collins, about 60 miles north of Denver. Authorities accused the Heenes of staging a hoax to get publicity for reality TV shows they were trying to pitch.”
