Number Two, from Dennis Reeves:
Chuck, would you please send to our members? To all of my good friends of LCDLA. I need your help. I will be incarcerated by MDA on August 15th. As you know MDA does a lot of great things for kids and adults with MD. Even though some of you would like to see me behind bars, I would like to keep that time to a minimum. My bail has been set at $1,300.00. The will not let me PR out. Just call my office, 797-3720 or reply by email and tell them how much, $25, $50, $100, and how you want to pay.
Number Three, from Chip Parker: Former LCDLA member Steven Denny has returned to the light by leaving the Potter Co. District Attorney’s office and is now employed with the Federal Public Defender’s Office for Amarillo and Lubbock.
And, finally, this note from George Nelson regarding the late Bobby Rogers:
Bobby was the only person I ever met who connected his window washer container under the hood of his car to a tap he installed on his dash, filling the container with good bourbon whiskey. I was riding with him to Big Spring to take a deposition when he offered me a drink from the apparatus. He was a great guy, fun to be around, an excellent court reporter, and a friend to lawyers.
