Robert Buck owns the law firm that stepped into to be the Special Executor of Rosamond’s creative legacy after Vicki Presco refused to serve. Robert is connected to the Buck Trust and Institute that is right out of a science fiction novel in regards for searching for the Fountain of Youth. Robert also owns Del Monte Aviation that flies in professional golfers to play at Pebble Beach. This beats anything Thomas Pynchon could dream up. This is what Heather, the sixteen year old daughter ‘The Gold Digger’, was after, Fame, Fortune, and an unending fountain of booze. Heather’s ambition was the be the Most Popular Girl in the World. This is why Linda Comstock told my minor child to un-invite me to her High School graduation. Linda and Flip had major plans for this minor.
I kept telling my daughter; “All’s well, that ends well!” As it turns out the Buck Trust established Alcohol Justice because the Buck family suffered from alcoholism. In Rosamond’s probate are pleas to Morris to respect the family miracle of sobriety, thanks to Alcoholics Anonymous.
The end of Christine and my story is Flip toasting Tyler Hunt in a bar.
“Truth is stranger than fiction!”
The organization has an entire “library” of alcoholic products it believes targets youth. Some feature bright colors or animated characters. Others resemble popular juice boxes or energy drinks.
Alcohol Justice receives about $1.2 million of its $1.3 million annual budget from the Buck Trust as part of funding that dates back to a 1987 court case. The other two agencies that receive a significant portion of the trust’s yearly allotments are the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, which receives about $6 million a year, and the Buck Institute for Education, which receives about $1 million a year.
Thomas Peters, president of the Marin Community Foundation — which oversees the Buck Trust — said Alcohol Justice’s aggressive stance has delighted him and others at the foundation.
“Their mission to expose the duplicity of the alcohol industry in its marketing campaigns to teenagers and younger is a real community service,” Peters said. He noted that the nonprofit buys just enough stock in alcohol companies to get itself into annual shareholder meetings and ask pointed questions.
Because the Buck Trust will fund the nonprofit “in perpetuity,” the organization has the freedom to be more outspoken than other groups that rely on individual donations and grants, he said.
“We can have them as a voice of advocacy and also a voice of honesty,” Peters said.
Alcohol Justice’s aggressive campaigns haven’t made the nonprofit popular with everyone.
The group’s Wikipedia page has been repeatedly altered with erroneous information, and after a recent initiative, someone hacked the company’s network, debilitating email for four days, Livingston said. After its recent name change, the nonprofit bought the new domain name alcoholjustice.org — as well as every incarnation of the domain “alcoholinjustice” — to keep critics from purchasing those sites.
“The alcohol industry does not always appreciate our work,” Livingston said, adding with a smile, “I always sort of expected a beer truck to come through the window.”
Del Monte Aviation is rich in history. For some, the name “Del Monte” may be reminiscent of canned pineapples. However, the name “Del Monte” is also considered an important part of the history of the Monterey Peninsula. The name often was used over the years as the peninsula became known as a hot spot to visit for luxurious and professional services, not to mention golf in a spectacular landscape!
For example, in 1880, Monterey’s grand and most opulent hotel was called the Hotel Del Monte (now the Naval Postgraduate School).
Then, in the 1890’s , as the game of golf made its journey west, the Hotel Del Monte attached the name to its new golf course (now locally known as the “Old Del Monte” course). Old Del Monte is considered to be the oldest golf course in continuous operations west of the Mississippi.
Del Monte is considered Monterey’s Finest Full Service Executive Air Terminal, with over 16 acres of ramp space, a luxurious lobby and all the amenities your passengers or crews will need to make their journey a great one. The entire staff of Del Monte Aviation welcomes you to stop by and visit and see how we will make your trip a first class travel experience.

According to an article on the Buck Foundation Gerard Rose is still a partner even though he says he quit because he was elected to public office.

"Christine and I met while I was still with my husband." Sande says, "who had a mural painted by Garth Benton, together with some Rosamond originals. But one of our favorite places to go - my husband had a private jet that could take us anywhere in the world - was the Monterey Peninsula. We'd fly in whenever we wanted, a limousine would pick us up, and we'd hang out for a few days. On a trip to Pebble Beach in 1991, my husband mentioned some friendswith a new gallery in Carmel, and it would be nice to visit with them. When the four of us met in the lobby, I was struck by two things about Christine: she smiled easily, and she was very quiet. That didn't suprise because my husband's wealth could be very intimidating."
"It is not quite ten-thirty in the morning and Vicki asks about the tide. Christine says it is low, based on her frequent excursions to Point Lobos with Drew. The ocean seems calm, ordinary. Vicki remains at the limit of the ice plant on the hill, while Christine and Drew sit down on the rock with her back to the sea, fully aware that she is violating a cardinal rule."

Gerard Rose was a partner of Sydney Morris. He is a politician who thrust himself upon the politics of Carmel. Radical Republicans have destroyed the Grand Party claiming they hate the language of politics. Rose and Morris went to law school to learn Lawyer-Speak so they can make money. If I hired a garbage man to sue them, they would cry to the judge. Rose and Morris ignored the truth there exist Artist-Speak, and hired garbage men and women to author a biography about my late sister and her family. None of these people know anything about art! Heisinger is famous for his Moot Court. They have to know Chazen whose law office is in Carmel. Buck has a foundation. I believe anyone who deals with artists, or, wants to be a big shot in a Bohemian City, should take and pass a art appreciation class.
Gerard Rose in indeed living in his own fantasy world, as are Mayor Sue McCloud, Council Members Paula Hazdovac, Karen Sharp and Ken Talmage. Rose seems unable to process his being voted out of office in April 2010. He acts like the 6th Carmel city council member. And if he was worth his salt as an attorney, he would have made certain claims of harassment and forced early retirements were effectively dealt with in 2003 with the first claims against the city. His has been sweeping the dirt under the carpet (and worse) for years and years. But do not expect Rose to escape his fantasy world anytime soon, Sue McCloud needs him to distract attention and provide cover for her.
