    Congratulations to Scott….a workhorse for the community. The only thing that could make it better for me would be if my mother Marjorie was here to see it. She and Scott worked at the News in ‘the good old days’ . Coming from different political persuasions, she always did her best to ‘convert’ him—didn’t work—but thoroughly enjoyed Scott.

    Congratulations to Scott and to the Committee for selecting such a wonderful person in our community. Scott and others helped coin the phrase “community assets” and now it is terrific and so deserving to have him recognized as one!
