I was worried that you had taken a better job elsewhere. Doug Kelly assured me you had not gone elsewhere but that you were probably busier now that you were in charge of both city courses.

I didn't see you on the list of the highest paid city employees. What's up with that?!?! Where are the City's priorities?

See you in March (EARLY March)
