Tom and Kristy Trumbley

(My son Mark and his friend Tom were Junior High School buddies in Oxford, CT before we moved to Florida).. It’s nice to see the kids having fun!
Thomas and Kristy Trumbley celebrate 10-year anniversary Thursday by renewing vows at Grand Central Terminal.
New York Daily News article

Ten years ago, Thomas and Kristy Trumbley dreamed of getting married at Grand Central Terminal, but the price was too high.

Thursday, the groom finally figured out how to grant his bride’s wish to say “I do” beneath the transit hub’s majestic vaulted ceiling – for free.

With charmed tourists and harried commuters as their wedding party, the Trumbleys renewed their vows on the balcony over Metro-North Track 23.

“It’s our place. We would always meet at Grand Central after work,” ” said Thomas Trumbley, 41, who decided to make the station the centerpiece of a romantic surprise.

Yesterday was their 10th anniversary, and he told Kristy, 33, to put on her wedding dress so they could pose for pictures at their favorite place.

When they got to Grand Central, he took her up to the balcony, where the Rev. Annie Lawrence was waiting to do the honors.

“It’s bliss,” a teary-eyed Kristy said after they sealed their recommitment with a long kiss. “It’s New York. It’s an icon. It’s beautiful.”

The couple – who live in Beacon HillConn., with their three sons – soon drew a crowd of gawkers.

“We don’t do this in France. But why not?” said French tourist Mariamme Barbieux, 29.

“It’s New York. Anything can happen,” explained Diana Grubbs.

Thomas Trumbley, a manager for UnitedHealthcare, proposed to his Brooklyn-born wife at the Empire State Building.

He had hoped to have the wedding at Métrazur in Grand Central, but it was $10,000 just to hold the date. Instead, they got hitched at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in New RochelleWestchester County.

He figures he’s made good now, though.

“This is your Christmas present, your anniversary present and your birthday present,” Trumbley told his wife. “I am covered for the next 20 years.”

Sanford Airport to opt out of TSA screening

The backlash continues over those new TSA screening measures, and now one Central Florida airport has decided to go with a private security screening firm.

Orlando Sanford International Airport has decided to opt out from TSA screening.

“All of our due diligence shows it’s the way to go,” said Larry Dale, the director of the Sanford Airport Authority. “You’re going to get better service at a better price and more accountability and better customer service.”

Dale says he will be sending a letter requesting to opt out from TSA screening, and instead the airport will choose one of the five approved private screening companies to take over.

Congressman John Mica, who’s expected to lead the powerful Transportation Committee next year, says the TSA is crying out for reform.

“I think TSA is overstepping its bounds,” said Mica.

Dale says, if all goes as planned, the private security firm could take over in about 12 months.

The TSA points out that even if an airport decides to use a private firm for security, the screeners still must follow TSA guidelines. That would include using enhanced pat-downs and the full-body scanners if they are installed at the airport.

Is opting out the way to go?
Yes, anything is better than TSA.
No, I would feel less safe.
Maybe, it depends on the company that gets the contract.
