Deputy Finemaster Dick Martinez led the club in the latest round of “Arcadia Rotary What’s My Line?” with mostly successful results:
Ray Bushnell and Mike Hoey started us off on the right foot by both knowing the other’s business: Ray’s business, RBI Systems, Inc., provides direct mail and data processing services, Mike is a Doctor of Optometry and owns Hoey Optometry. Neither were fined since they provided the correct answers.
Next, Gil Stromsoe and Frank Hall continued the streak: Gil is a CPA and partner of Mark Schaefer Associates (and prepares Frank’s tax returns), Frank is a retired banker and corporate fundraiser, currently President of Arcadia Rotary Foundation. Again, no fines for either one.
Eric Barter and Jack McRae were close: Jack correctly identified Eric’s business as bail bondsman with Bad Boy’s Bail Bonds – he works with criminal defense attorneys, while Eric got partial credit for his guess of police officer and attorney. Jack is an attorney and also a reserve deputy sheriff. Eric’s fine was also partial at $10.
Bob Harbicht and Mike Ojeda landed a little farther apart: Bob guessed Mike was in the escrow business – Mike’s in the title insurance business with Equity Title Corp, and Mike correctly identified Bob as former Arcadia mayor, but missed his being retired from owning a marketing research company. Both were fined $25.
Last up, Ken Chan and David Freeman finished off with style: Ken correctly stated David’s businesses as tennis bum, real estate attorney, and board member on the Arcadia Board of Realtors. David, also correctly according to Ken, knew that Ken is a magician extraordinaire and a teacher of magic.
