Somehow, I don't think using the word "axes" in the same line as Valley Humane Society is in good taste.

It just conjures up visions of something else...

Better luck next time.

Dave Stegman has always been committed to a better community. In the over 20 years that I have known him, he has been a great convener, collaborater, and civic leader. I wish him all the best.

And I agree with that previous post regarding the use of 'axes'. There must have been a softer way to break the news to Dave's colleagues, associates, and friends.
