Current and former clients in the news
Two daily newspapers and four weekly newspapers keep me fairly well aware of what’s going on throughout the area. Today had a convergence of a sort.
One story was reporting that a teenage boy had won a noteworthy car race in Oklahoma over this past weekend. I already knew that as I met with his parents yesterday to receive guidance as to how I was to split their property into two pieces.
Another story told of a city manager in one of the larger cities in the State had been non-renewed after only two years on the job. Smart people out there. It took the dummies in a nearby city five years to come to the same conclusion. I had conducted about one survey job per year for the city while he was local. Prior to his appearance, it had been several jobs each year for many years.
Another story reported a relative had discovered a man dead. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation was called in. They declared the death to be a homicide. Yup, one of my former clients on three different jobs. Same age as me. His older brother had been my Driver’s Ed. teacher.
There was a human interest type story including a picture of a flathead catfish caught in 1966 that weighed over 86 pounds and held the State Record for over 20 years. A multiple former client was the one who provided the photo to the newspaper. Two people caught the fish. My client knew their names but wasn’t positive as to how to spell one of the names. The news writer did enough research to confirm the spelling. But, in the process, he learned something rather impressive about the son of that fisherman. The son manufactured electric chairs. Yes. That kind of electric chair.
