    An embarrassing thing happened to me Sunday. When I arrived at church services, I reached into my coat pocket for my offertory envelope and discovered I had lost it somewhere during my walk from home. It did not turn up on my return walk. When I got home, there was a message on the answering machine saying the envelope had been found by a gentleman who had been walking his dog. The incident was a prime example of why Dansville is a good place to live. There are a good many great people here and we should appreciate that fact. It makes serving the village an honor.
    I would like to briefly comment on a front page story that appeared in last week’s Express. It centered on a Jan. 10 board meeting discussion I had with Trustee Pat Kreiley. I came away from reading the headline and lead with the feeling there is a perception I had drawn a line in the sand between the trustees and myself. That was hardly the case. I merely pointed out, as is my responsibility as the board’s presiding officer and village’s chief executive officer, that there was a question as to the extent to which a trustee should have access to and be involved in everyday operations. Mrs. Kreiley has since been given the appropriate level of access she sought, and that is that. Just normal government discussion that was resolved in a rather normal fashion.
    That being said, I believe the entire matter received more attention than it deserved. In my opinion, there were more important issues on the agenda, such as the establishment of an adult entertainment district and the resignation of Village Justice Ron Snyder. I certainly hope we read about those topics in the near future.
    God bless and best wishes for the new year.
