FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- ATLANTA -- September 11, 2015
The Dickens of Detroit – Neely Tucker: Washington Post Journalist • PR Web

WASHINGTON, DC -- April 23, 2016 – Elmore Leonard was personally and professionally a huge influence on author Neely Tucker who is a staff writer for the Washington Post Sunday Magazine. Tucker has reported from more than 50 countries around the world and from two dozen of these United States. He is the author of “Love in the Driest Season.” A native of Mississippi, he now lives with his family just outside of D.C. He is an embarrassingly huge fan of Mississippi State and the New Orleans Saints.

We spent a Saturday afternoon with Neely outside Washington, D.C. – discussing all things Elmore Leonard. His interview for the documentary Elmore Leonard: The Dickens of Detroit was wonderfully focused, animated and filled with engaging insight.

The Dickens of Detroit is Written & Directed by John Mulholland and produced by Richard Zampella. Visit

Richard Zampella Assumes Ownership of Idylease in Newfoundland, NJ • PR Web

A three year legal battle over the fate of Idylease ended this week with the sale of the historic structure located in the Newfoundland section of West Milford.

Since 2012, The Estate of Alice Zampella unsuccessfully attempted to sell off six individual lots to different buyers. In an effort to maintain the property, beneficiary Richard Zampella filed an order with the Superior Court of New Jersey: Chancery Division.

The lawsuit challenged the intended sales by Estate Executor Clark Zampella and Susan Capadonna and their plan to break up of the estate that would have forced Idylease to face an uncertain future.

Over the course of the legal dispute, the Hon Judge Mary Marget McVeigh ordered the removal of attorney Paul Ross of Ross & Ross from the proceedings pursuant to RPC 3.7.

On April 11, 2016 ownership of Idylease was assumed by Richard Zampella, the son of Dr. Arthur Zampella who owned and operated Idylease from 1954 until his death in January of 1992.
