Maybe he needs to get a real job that has insurance for when these little accidents happen?

4-H Dad Russell...

Matt Missey has been absolutely wonderful in giving his time for the young folks of this area in 4-H. I have heard them talk numerous times of his wonderful songs that he and the campers sang at 4-H camp. I have met Mr. Missey and his family and know what great folks they are.

For their generosity to be met with such a low-life comment as was posted by "hello" is beyond belief. Mr. Missey indeed has a "real job" -- being self-employed is as real as it gets ! I am glad the follow-up story in the Monday paper tells of the generosity that has been returned to this fine man and his family.
