HTF is very much like a family (perhaps dysfunctional at times, but a family just the same), or at least it can sometimes feel that way. With such a broad membership, I am sure there are those in our family of home theater enthusiasts who have been severely impacted by Katrina. I was happy to see that Frank Grimes recently chimed in, as he had expressed a great deal of anxiety over the approaching hurricane. Unfortunately, there are several members from the area that have yet to post since Katrina hit. Several of these people have been very active long time HTF members; like Brian Kaz, Carl Fink, Jody C Robins and Todd Barattini. In particular, I am quite concerned about the well being of Todd Barattini and his family. I believe he has a wife and two young daughters, and in his last post on the forum he made no indication that we was going to evacuate. I knew from his post in after hours about selling his house, Selling your own home? Helpfull info needed, that he lived off I-59 near Slidell, an area which was severely devastated by the hurricane. I searched through both the Missing Persons and the I'm OK lists for victims of Katrina hosted on www.nola.com and was only able to find a Joseph & Ronnie Barattini - who I'm fairly certain are no relation. I do not believe he has any siblings, and I think his father passed away exactly two years from today. This is assuming he is the same Todd Barattini, son of Jacob Barattini of Slidell. Searching the HTF Member List I found additional members who may or may not have been impacted by Katrina.
