View Sunspot with Solr start page offset
+module Sunspot
+ # monkey patch for Sunspot v 1.1.1 to add support for solr "start" query parameter
+ # we can now optionally add a :start number to offset search results
+ # in this scenario, we want the first 3 results for the carousel, and then 5 more
+ # the code as is requires the start to be set to 3 and the per_page to 8 for this to work
+ # a better solution would be to modify the per_page= method but I was unable to do this
