"It all depends on the lawyers," he said. mil rjm75-irv "That proposal is so preposterous that anyone sending it to us is wasting their time," Tendrich said. Crestwood is not planning to give away any more than the land for a school and park.

Santamaria said his company is not insisting on a golf course any type of green space would be fine, as long as it's 180 acres. He said his concerns are environmental. Crestwood counters that San-tamaria's environmental concerns are a smoke screen. Royal Professional is building homes. The owners say they've sold 400 of a total of 666. At village hall, they just want Saratoga moving again. When both parcels are complete, it will give the village at least $1.1 million extra tax dollars a year, Finance Director Steve Markiw said. That's a major reason Masilotti stepped in with his plan to add a golf course and drop the lawsuits. "They've both told me it's a plan they can both live with," Masilotti said. But both developers deny they've seen anything they're ready to sign off on. Internet helped pair to reunite MARRIAGE From 1C Unchasville, Conn. But at 16, his family moved to California. Heeding her friends' advice, she asked an acquaintance who is a private investigator to track down Giese. And he did. The investigator found Giese's son, also named Craig, through the Internet. "Do you have red hair?" he asked in an e-mail. "No, but my dad does," the son messaged back from his college in California. Later, that October 1996, the son e-mailed his father, "Somebody interesting is going to be calling." "1 logged off," the elder Giese said. "And it was her."

At their first meeting, at the airport, a nervous Giese wore a T-shirt saying "Sleepless in Seattle," over his head. "It was just unbelievable," Vars said. Asked what he felt, Giese smiled but couldn't put it in words. A month later, Giese took a four-day trip to see Vars, and the two decided to call Seattle home. But in October, using $5,000 they won from the state lottery, they returned to South Florida. Two weeks ago they decided to marry. "The main thing right now is to have him on my insurance," said Vars, who begins a full-time secretarial job Dec. 15 at Hulett Environmental. Giese, who worked in restaurant management for 30 years, is looking for work. "I remember when they first started dating," recalled Vars' father, who drove three hours to be with 12 family members and friends at the ceremony. "I wouldn't let them go out alone. I made them take her big sister as a chaperone." The pair still has supervision. They've moved in with Vars' daughter and son-in-law in Port St. Lucie until they can save some money to find their own apartment. "Instead of raising kids, we can raise grandkids together," Vars said after they married. Their rejoining, said the notary public who wed them, is a tale of "two of life's travelers who've come full circle to join their destinies together."
