I was sad to see in the May Skydiving the article that describes the
magnitude of the problems at Pahokee, the DZ's closure, and the apparent
felony charges against DZO Larry Lerschenbaum. I made a couple of trips
there and found it to be a fairly nice DZ with a staff that was a lot of
fun. He clearly sunk a ton of money into the place, his personal funds as
well as government loans. It had become a fairly well equipped DZ. Hell it
even had a deck, a pool for a while, and even*** fighting across the road.
What more could one ask for?
I wish all involved, skydivers, business partners, etc., as well as Larry,
success in stepping out of this mess.
