Putting money where your mouth is
I am a big fan of people who put their money where their mouth is. Steve Layman is one of those people. When our school district announced we were going to tear down an old school building in town, many people came forward asking us to stop. They didn't necessarily want to buy the building or fix it up; they just didn't want it torn down.
Layman made a phone call and asked that it be put up for auction so he might bid on it. A man of his word, he bought the old school on Thursday. Thanks, Steve.
