Carmen Ackerman, spokesperson for the Turnberry Isle Resort and Club has met with the press to tell the real story about Heather Mill's lost engagement ring, (see June 3) Ms. Ackerman told reporters:"They were a lovely group. There was no report of them having a fight, no guest complained about voices being raised. There was never a report of any shouting, or fighting or yelling. That is so completely false and erroneous. We didn't even know there was anything wrong until we got a phone call saying the ring had been lost. Would we be able to assist them in finding the ring?"Ms. Ackerman confirmed that the resort staff did hunt for the ring in the rain and a security guard did locate the ring with the help of a flashlight, then called Sir Paul with the good news:"We contacted him. We let him know that we had the ring. He actually paid for a round trip ticket to London. And had our assistant manager go and deliver the ring."Sir Paul rewarded the security guard with $1,600 for finding the ring. Ms. Ackerman is sorry about all the publicity this story has attracted on the eve of Sir Paul's wedding:"It's a shame that on the eve of his, lies sold more newspapers than the truth did.They were lovely guests, we never had a single incident concerning their visit. This is really a story about how our staff went out of their way to retrieve the ring."
