miss him He was u hero A real hero Not just because he wan Gen George S Pattens chauffeur and valet during World War II but because of who he was His life taught me something I need to share us something we are losing as individuals as families and even as a country Its some thing that is there like faith oven when everything else falls apart You need it I need it The whole world needs it You cant build enough of it It wont leave you when times get tough It will carry you Its what makes real men and women honorable Its being under appreciated Its what grew the fastest the weaker he got It was his character Yes character Like respect il is not something you ask for its something you earn Like strength its not something granted its de veloped It may only count to those who have it but character counts He Was not impressed by what someone accomplished hut by what they had overcome Thats character Ho didnt take the easy way He took the right way Thats character He accepted responsibility for his actions faced the consequences without complaint and lived his life the best he could Thats character His road map was the Scrip tures his compass was his heart his passion was family his char actor was his art Thats what he taught me and I think the message is worth repeat ing JEFF POWELL DUBLIN OHIO gamble Hes a good provider and al lows his wife to stay home and not work

water supply corporation employees had helped collect or give out proxies during company lime The mailed proxies had mailing labels on them while the ones given out by the employees did not Roper said this was done because some ratepayers did not receive ballots through the mail or misplaced them The fact is a lot of people didnt get Roper said after the meeting Two weeks ago we we didnt have a quorum We realized we had to get more voters to have a Roper said 20 percent about 800 members have to be present to elect the board members The corporation has about ratepayers Roper said an extra 500 proxies were printed for those ratepayers who did not receive them through the mail or lost hem John Loughlin wonted to know what safeguards were in place to make sure the proxies in question were

not aware of the situation when Jack Wallace a member who helped count the proxies brought the incidents to his attention He said after he consulted Houchins he decided to let the employees collect the proxies M Willard president of the Waterfront Park Property Owners Association said she felt the corporations bylaws should be changed to allow for more direct voting for the board of directors
