GIVES ME BRAGGING RIGHTS
Thank you, Jack Cashill, for the most clear-headed thinking on issues in print. You are right on target with your comments regarding tobacco money. "Don't extort a legal business. It sets a terrible precedent." Amen and amen! And, thanks for making it entertaining as well.
By the way, as a 7-time Ingram's 100 winner, I would be happy to pay for my subscription (with the corporate credit care, of course) instead of the complimentary subscription. It's a nice touch, but I won't walk away from the magazine that gives me some bragging rights to prospective franchisees across the US and Canada. Inc. also gives me a complimentary subscription due to having been listed twice in a row, but don't tell them I'd pay for their rag, it's not as good as Ingram's.. Keep up the great work!

IN APPRECIATION OF SMALL BUSINESS
Thanks so much for addressing our officers meeting last week. You got great reviews and all the magazines are gone! I am looking forward to working with Ingram's on the Finance Industry Outlook to be featured in the June edition.

Congratulations on your "Forty Under Forty" edition. That kind of recognition will keep the kids at it.
I was pleased to see you throw some roses to Jim Ferrell. Even without the cold winter, things will be well at Ferrellgas again. A great guy.
Dan M. Lambert, President
Just a note of appreciation and awed humility to have been recognized as a "Generator" in your Power Elite edition. I am thrilled about the recognition for me and for AIPC. You seem to understand entrepreneurial leadership very well and I am very glad you don't always make the "safe choices".
Thanks for your support of all the good things going on in the community. Very truly yours,
Timothy S. Webster, President & CEO

APPRECIATION OF LEADERSHIP RECOGNITION
Wow-where do I start? I am so honored by your selecting me into your 40 Under 40 class! If that wasn't enough-your fun and professional way of honoring was awesome.
There is a lot of energy in this group and in the Kansas City business community. None of us do it for the recognition, but when we are recognized, it is "icing on the cake". Especially when we are recognized by a magazine we all respect and enjoy reading.
Best wishes and continued blessings to you and your magazine.
