Ha thats funny, my dads leg is made of synthetic plastic. Not wood. Honestly, you must be very hurt on some of the actions my family has put out through the community. At least we are trying to better our community. What are you doing. Nothing cause you love to stir crap with many issues. In no way does this mean i meant to offend you. If we are adults here then we should act like it.

Thank You,

I think you will do a fine job Edd. I don't totally agree with the way your father has handled every situation in this town but to each is own. We all have our own opinions and different ways of doing things but I think you are a smart sweet guy and you will be a great board member.

I think you will do a great job,too. We need some new young faces for our town. I think what this town really needs though is more things for the teenagers to do. Also bringing more businesses in would help. Is anything planned for that? Thanks.
