dummy plug October 31, 1999 Ross is spotted on the entertainment show, E! Now, at Walt Disney World attending a Roots store opening. He said something along the lines of how big Roots is world-wide. I missed the show, so perhaps the Roots official website will have some more information? dummy plug
dummy plug October 31, 1999 According to Friend, Ross was mentioned in a free newspaper called "Western Living" (I don't think I get that one, living in Toronto).

dummy plug September 18, 1999 Audrey says that Ross is mentioned in the September 99 issue of Saturday Night magazine, in an article about Ucluelet, B.C. (the location of the Roots Reef Point Resort). The article mentions that that Ross visited the Lodge "5 times in 5 weeks."

dummy plug June 6, 1999 Ross was spotted at the Jet bar in Toronto on Thursday, June 3 at the after-party for the premiere of Austin Powers 2: The Spy Who Shagged Me.
