Great story about my friend and Paige Hemmis of Extreme Makeover Home Edition!

My friend Jason has been the biggest fan I know of Paige Hemmis of ABC's EXTREME MAKEOVER HOME EDITON and has been trying for about the past year to contact her through her management company to no avail. Just this week while watching Good Morning America on Channel 7 I saw Ty Pennington (of Extreme Makeover Home Edition) live in Niagara Falls on with Jon Thomas Robertson a 7th grader from The Cuba/Rushford Central School who wrote Ty about making the ARCADE & ATTICA RAILROAD accessible to wheelchairs. I figured that since Ty would be in Arcade for a few days this week working on the rail cars and train station with his crew that Paige might be part of that crew, so I quickly called my friend saying "drop whatever you're doing and get to Arcade to meet Paige in person!" About 45 minutes later my friend called and said he had just gotten to meet and get a hug from Paige (a great story after trying to get a hold of her for nearly a year)!
By the way the segment from Arcade will be featured on Good Morning America on Friday September 26th on Channel 7.
