My money bets on his practice closing within the next year for one of the following reasons:

1. Loss of license. Not due to his waterskiing issues but investigation into his practice

2. He skips/moves out of town. For his kids sake I hope he does this

3. Insurance companies stop doing biz with him and he closes his practice due to not making and $$

Not a bad idea. You can write it off as a second residences. Also, why not write it off as an entertainment expense? I'll be your client, I've got some paint touchup you can do :D

I don't think it will be too bad for his kids sake.

They go to a school called University Lake School which is private and has very small class sizes. They are not in a public school with large classes. I know someone who goes there and he said that his class size is somethign like 14.

Methinks he will skip town and change his name (again) and open shop somewhere else.

It was late that night and I was tired.

He used to have a Nautique 196 but I belive that after hosting the Malibu Open, Malibu was going to give him one of the boats used, I think that was pulled after being caught.

A WEEKEND IN MILWAUKEE 7/28/03



I spent this past weekend in Dousman, Wisconsin, a small town about 30 minutes outside Milwaukee. I was in Dousman helping the current Men IV Slalom Record holder, Dr. Jim Michaels and his skiing partner, Jeff Maier get their skis set up and also working with them on their technique. Dr. Michaels is planning yet another assault on the Men IV record in August. When I arrived, Dr. Michael’s told me of Jeff’s incredible eleven set day the prior weekend which I found incomprehensible. Just prior to starting our day, Brent Larsen, the father of Britt and Tawn, the incredible twin trick skiing sisters who dominated the sport in the 80’s and 90’s showed up. You might think of Brent as a “TRICK COACH” but forget about that! Brent has been working with Doc for a number of years now. You see, not only is Brent a trick ski coach, he is also a “SNOW SKI COACH”. Brent understands, sees and thinks in terms of “STACKING, CENTER OF MASS, BASE OF SUPPORT, TRIANGULATION” and so on. Brent has produced and is producing what he refers to as “GHOSTING VIDEOS” where he overlays one skier on top of another. Brent is to this type of waterskiing analysis, what I am to fin tuning. I have in fact suggested to Brent that he start a waterskiing directed, snow ski coaching facility where he teaches water skiers the basics and fundamentals of snow skiing as they directly relate to water skiing as well as much more advanced philosophies and techniques. As water skiers, we need to start thinking on a totally different level and Brent can take us there.

We started out skiing about 9 AM Saturday morning, Doc and Jeff the only 2 skiers except for the one set wonder of Todd Weber whose absolute love of waterskiing and intensity were unbelievable (Todd went on the very next day, Sunday to win the State's and set a new personal best of 1/2 @ 41 off)! About 6:00 that evening we were through, Doc and Jeff having each done 7 sets! And we’re talking short line lengths, testing fins, wings and binding locations every set and taking every set up into and through, 38 -39 and 41 off. Yes, 41 off which Doc ran on his 6th set out! Jeff ran 38 every set and deep 39 on most. I have never witnessed skiing of this magnitude and intensity in all my 25 years of competition, practice and coaching. I’ve skied 5 set days and heard of 6, maybe 7 but the very next day, Doc and Jeff were again hammering away at their 41’s and 39’s, each and every one of their 9 sets Sunday. I told Doc and Jeff I had never seen anything like this, ever! Doc said that in other sports, people train very, very hard. They take their training seriously. He said that most of the people who call themselves competitors take their 1-2 or 3 sets a day and that’s it. They’re pot bellied and call themselves competitors! But not Doc! 7 sets a day! 9 sets a day. And on top of all this, Doc has a gym complete with machines and free weights and a separate padded room complete with heavy and speed bags. Doc takes this and everything else he does seriously. He’s a former Judo champion and won the Reno air races in 2000 in his P-51 Mustang. In business too, Doc leaves his competition shaking their heads. Yes, this guy is competitive! So a message to all of you wanna be National Record holders, either exceed Jim’s level of commitment or you might as well sit this battle out.

That's a good one! Hadn't seen this thread before. Not to dredge up too much of this, but here's one question I'm not sure I ever saw addressed. I would think as a boat driver or spotter, wouldn't the closeness of the buoys been evident? Maybe not, but I'd think I'd notice if someone moved the buoys in on a course that I drove or observed. Especially the professional drivers/judges who do this for a living. :confused:

Back in the news, such troubles..... check the article linked, and enjoy the quote:

"Granted, I royally screwed up when I did that water ski thing," he said Wednesday. "I feel bad about that. I can't compete for five more years. That's the price I paid, and I'm willing to take my lumps."

Unless he has enough acreage, having a chopper next door isn't my idea of Paradise. He doesn't seem too interested in letting the process take it's course and if he stopped flying until the permits are in, it may take less time. I don't like paying permit fees and having restrictions any more than anyone else but c'mon, who thinks building a helipad is and flying a chopper in a residential area is gonna happen without needing permits and special permission?

Mag_Red
03-01-2007, 11:13 AM
Reminds me of the guy at our marina that used to land his helicopter on his houseboat. Sure it's cool and all, but come on..who really wants some fella landing one of those things 15' from your 1/2 million dollor boat??? He moved his boat to another marina thank god:rolleyes:

shepherd
03-01-2007, 11:19 AM
46 acres is a pretty big residential lot. I just assumed he could locate his helipad somewhere on his property that wouldn't affect his neighbors except for the occasional noise. We have 1/4 acre lots on my street. If my next door neighbor decided to build a helipad, I would probably have a problem with that.

btw, I'm not saying this guy is smart... :rolleyes:

One of the articles explained he has a high root canal rate as a general dentist, so high the state was investigating.

03-01-2007, 02:21 PM
I remember, as a kid, my dad always used to say," hit 'em long and straight Doc!" as we were leaving the dentist's office. I think it was a jab at the dentist, no, wait, I'm sure it was a jab at the dentist. Implying that he didn't work much and did golf a lot. So I think all the questions about having time to do this and not having time to do that in the news paper articles are kind of funny. They assume that this dentist gig is really time consuming.

Dr. Cheat's compound is pretty close to where I work. There isn't a chance that he has an afternoon ski group lesson or something is there? I mean he could set that course on FULL CHEAT and it would make a rookie like me look pretty good.

I remeber a few years ago Harry Quadracci (owns Quad Graphics) got in trouble by the village of Chenequa for landing his helicopter at his house on Pine Lake. At least Dr. Cheat has 46 acres and is probably not landing 100' away from someone's $3m house:cool:
