Laguna Woods Village resident Charlene Sydow is spearheading a grassroots campaign to save the community's landmark globe from demolition next week.
"I know we've got to move quickly, this is happening so fast!" said Sydow.
Members of the "Save the Globe" group have lobbied board members to assist in asking Heidi Cortese to put a stay on the May 16 deadline for razing the globe and suggest terms she'd consider fair to allow the unique structure to remain intact.
The razing is part of lawsuit settlement between RRLH, Inc. of Newport Beach which prevailed in a trademark infringement suit against the Village's Golden Rain Foundation and its managing agent.
RRLH principal Heidi Cortese has contended the globe is one of the Leisure World marks owned by her late developer father Ross Cortese who developed Leisure World, the Village's former name...

legal intracacies but how is this er 'copywrited/tradmarked' a globe is on many things, why isn't she having the Unisphere torn down from the remains of the 64 Worlds Fair or removing the globe logo from Global Van Lines trucks. I dunno sounds a little selfish to me.
Hope the preservation effort is successful.

Maybe that minister in Dallas, TX could use it outside his church. He has the replica in the background when he is on tv. (:

So the daughter of the guy who put the globe there in the first place took it down because the community changed its name?

That's just about the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

Way to go, Heidi. Bravo.

No, the daughter of the guy that put it up asked for royalties to use the name, the management declined and decided they would rather change the name and junk the globe.

Ah, guess I misunderstood from the article. :oops:

Nonetheless, in that case, I still reiterate my second sentence in my previous post. :roll:
