Give him the hook instead

In (ahem) news from the Aug. 19 Ontario council meeting:

Fullmer Construction donated a building to Ontario for use in fire-training exercises. In response, at the meeting a Fuller rep was given a large, horizontal plaque with a gold-plated fire ax attached.

Photos were taken, handshakes were exchanged, Councilwoman Sheila Mautz hugged everyone and seats were resumed.

Then one worry was belatedly expressed.

Mayor Paul Leon said, “Councilman Bowman is concerned we just gave Fullmer the ax.”

    David,

    A Fuller rep got the ax for Fullmer? Hmmmm. One of the benefits of newspaper over blogs is proofreader/copy editors :-)
