Mayor's Corner 12/8/2016

Dear Friends: 
I’ve resisted the urge to weigh in on national politics and the Trump election until now.  I’m sure no matter what I say, it will be controversial.
 
I’ll never forget my father’s council when years ago he overheard a Mayor trying to get me to run for public office. “Son,” he said, after the Mayor had left the Dairy. “We have worked mighty hard to get and keep our customers. I’m afraid that you could offend half of them straight away if you were to be in public office.”
 
“If you want to serve your community,” he continued, “join a service club or volunteer to do any number of things that will help our city.”  As usual, I thought that Dad didn’t trust my good judgment and my vast life experience!  In reality, he was very wise.  I only wish I could chat with him right now.

Dear Friends: 
Two years ago this week, I attended Snow College’s Holiday Music Spectacular at the Sevier Valley Center.  I was embarrassed, as I sheepishly looked around our beautiful theater at the small crowd.
 
I whispered to my wife that this was the best Christmas concert that I had ever witnessed, and yet the audience only numbered maybe 150 people in the 800-plus seat facility. I committed right then that if they would ever come back I would do everything in my power or influence to fill the building!

Mayor's Corner 11/24/2016

Dear Friends: 
The holidays are upon us!  It’s a wonderful time of year.  We all have different traditions, but there’s one thing in common; we work our tails off to have great get-togethers.
 
We drive, fly, bus, and walk to our holiday destinations.  Okay, the only walking I do is up the path and into the house!  We overspend to facilitate these gatherings, including the purchase of all the grub that’s inhaled by youngsters and tenderly chewed and enjoyed by us oldsters. We usually talk about the “good ol’ days” and pine for the time when we could walk around the table once and be hungry again.
