Meet a Westsider:
Rory Fitzgerald

Profession/Occupation... owner of Fitzís Betterway Nursery.

What I like most about the Westside is... the people I meet. Some are more colorful than others but all of them are interesting.

If I could change anything about the Westside, it would be... growth. I like the Westside because it has a small-town feel. I would like to see development limited.

A good movie Iíve seen recently is... I have not seen a new movie in ages.

The worst advice Iíve ever gotten was... to buy a Volkswagon with fuel injection. It was one of the old ones and the injectors always clogged.

If I could meet someone famous, Iíd like to meet... Goldie Hawn. Iíve had a crush on her since I was a kid.

The next time I travel, Iím going to... Mexico with my wife, Kat, to scuba dive and relax on the beach with an ice-cold beer.

My favorite childhood memory is... going camping with my dad in the mountains and fishing for trout in the streams.

My favorite summer pastime is... BBQ. Nothing is better on a warm summer evening than having a barbeque and enjoying friends and family.

Something good Iíve read is.. anything by Clive Cussler.

My pet peeve is... the cityís sprinkler system being on in the rain and during a drought.

If I won the lottery, Iíd... give some to my daughter, start a trust for my grandkidsí college education and a vacation home for my wife and me.
