I'm glad you asked that question.  I have the definite answer, because we visited him, his better half, Lina and son Jay recently.  

We decided to take a little trip to the Carolina's recently.  While there we looked up an old friend and colleague, Dick Stark.  Remember Dick?  He had a VERY popular show for many years on 'GNA.  He was the infamous "Dick Stark After Dark" during the late '80s and through the '90's  He then moved on to our Director of Marketing, and did a great job there too.  We used to have brainstorming meetings with the morning show that included a jam session with guitar, keyboard and desk tapping for percussion.  Lots of great memories.

Where is he now?  He and his family moved to the Charlotte, North Carolina area in a beautiful home.  He now has a big job with Time Warner Cable in their East Coast headquarters.

The weather down there? Gorgeous.  Property taxes? Ridiculously low.  We figured that he pays 1/9th of what we pay in Niskayuna.   The Starks made a great move, and it was fantastic to see them.

They showed us all around Charlotte.  It was like having an actual tour guide.  We had a fantastic time, and thanks to the Starks for putting us up at their" hotel! "   Here's the Charlotte Motor Speedway.  HUUUUUUGGGE!!

Sports reigns supreme in Charlotte.  It's all over the place.  They're even building a new baseball stadium there.  So If you want a great vacation spot, head to Charlotte.
