Did you know?
« on: September 20, 2002, 11:24:00 PM »
That by December, 1973,scantily three years into "the program", the Seed was claiming over 5000 kids had already been "treated".

That initially Art was only getting $250 per kids and wasn't even demanding anything at all if you poor mouthed, but instead was mining local and federal governments and private donations.

That Art kept seperate books on "private money" and refused to show anyone.  That 450 Kids were enrolled in The St Pete Seed within 3 months.  That when the Miami Seed closed, 1400 Kids were in the program!

that Art's house was donated by a group of Seed parents.

That the St Pete Seed wasn't really donated by Morgan Yachts, but instead purchased by a local businessman and given to the Seed rent free for one year, then purchased by the Seed for over $200,000.

That the director of the St Pete Seed was indeed the infamous Susie Connors.

That I know even more Seed trivia today than I did yesterday!

I remember someone by that name.Could be her. The Suzie i remember had dark hair, very   attractive, southern accent,and originaly from Tenn or Kentucky? By the time i was in the program Libby was in charge, but Suzie would drop by from time to time. You think  these former staff are still hangin out with Art? Still sober? Functional?

Libbi is hanging around Art , Suzie isn't.
Suzie was at the Seed reunion about 10 years ago.

Libbi's name is Libbi Mcdonald Barker Kienzle.
Libbi McDonald is her birth name
Libbi Barker is because she was adopted by Art when she was about 18
Libbi Barker Kienzle because she married another seed staffer named Bob Kienzle. They are still married, live in Lauderdale and are very close with Art barker.
