Ritz Carlton Penthouse for Sale: $14 million, Ctd.
D Magazine - over 4 years
I met Gabe Kaplan once. Dude has some janky facial hair. I was doing a little poking around in public records to find out who might be selling that penthouse. Here is a list of owners of the top floors of the Ritz: Randall Van Wolfswinkel, Trevor Rees-Jones, and a trust for Gabriel Kaplan. The first two are known quantities. RVW is a home-building magnate. TRJ is a oil and gas guy. But that third fellow? Does Mr. Kotter really own one of the top-floor condos at the Ritz? He just might. The guy does spend some time in Dallas. Given his TV residuals and his poker skills, I’m guessing he could afford it.

Bill Moyers: Campaign Cash: The Gift That Keeps on Giving
Huffington Post - over 4 years
If you're visiting a candidate this summer and looking for a thoughtful house gift, might we suggest a nice super PAC? Thanks to the Supreme Court and Citizens United, they're all the rage among the mega-wealthy. All it takes is a little paperwork and a wad of cash and presto, you can have, as The Washington Post describes it, a "highly customized, highly personalized political action committee." It's easy -- super PACs come in all amounts and party affiliations. You don't have to spend millions, although a gift that size certainly won't be turned aside. Cable TV tycoon Marc Nathanson got a super PAC for his friend, longtime Democratic Congressman Howard Berman from California, and all it cost was $100,000. Down in North Carolina, Republican congressional candidate George Holding received a handsome super PAC that includes $100,000 each from an aunt and uncle and a quarter of a million from a bunch of his cousins. Yes, nothing says family like a great big, homemade batch of ...

Tom Hicks, George W. Bush Team Up for Global Health
D Magazine - almost 5 years
In Dallas’s tony Preston Hollow neighborhood, businessman Tom Hicks’ 33,000-square-foot estate — the priciest spread in Big D — backs up, literally, to Hicks pal George W. Bush’s place. So the former president didn’t have far to go Sunday afternoon for an event at Hicks’ home that raised money for the Global Health Corps. GHC is a nonprofit outfit promoting “health equity,” co-founded by Laura and George’s daughter, Barbara Pierce Bush. While Hicks mingled with the likes of Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, energy magnate Trevor Rees-Jones, civic leader Tom Dunning and banker Elaine Agather, Laura and George posed good-naturedly for photos. W (pictured) pumped hands with some guests, winked at others, and joked drolly about his mother’s recent comment that he wasn’t easy to rear. “That’s right,” Bush said. “She was trying to say that stay-at-home moms have a job — it’s hard work. And she had to bring me into it. I used to say I’m the reason she had white hair.” Out on the back ...

Trevor Rees-Jones Snags Another Billion
D Magazine - almost 5 years
Another day, another $1 billion paycheck for Dallas energy billionaire Trevor Rees-Jones. This time, it’s Rees-Jones’ Chief Gathering LLC–a pipeline-and-operating assets company in the Marcellus Shale–that’s being sold for that amount to Penn Virginia Resource Partners LP. Rees-Jones has a knack for notching these big oil-and-gas paydays, having previously pocketed checks for $2.63 billion (in 2006), $1.3 billion (in 2008), $406 million (in 2009), $460 million (in 2010) and $1 billion last year.

His face was reconstructed from family photographs by maxillofacial surgeon Luc Chikhani, using about 150 pieces of titanium to hold the bones together and recreate the original shape. Within a year, his face was nearly back to normal. Hospital care costs were paid by Dodi's father, Mohamed Al-Fayed, Rees-Jones's employer at the time of the crash, and the rest by the British National Health Service (NHS).
