Letter of thanks: Businessman humbled by award

Kingman Transportation Service, LLC was recently awarded the "Business of the Year" award by the Kingman Chamber of Commerce at its annual Andy Devine Awards ceremony. This honor was unexpected and totally humbling.

As a child growing up in southern Minnesota, Andy Devine was one of my heroes along with the likes of John Wayne, Roy Rogers, Sky King, Gene Autry, Gabby Hays and others. Never in my imagination did I ever think that I would be associated with an award that had Andy Devine as its centerpiece.

None of this would have been possible without the hard work of our crew. Drivers: Loren Larson, Paul Sanders, Kenny Darden, Andrew Pierce, Larry Wilson, John (Bill) Shisler, Crystal Rowley, Tonja Pound, Don Brown, Tricia Brickey and Fay Covey. I want to thank Phil Henderson, Cherri Green and, Alan McLain, my mechanic, who performs magic when my cars go down.

Thank you Kingman Chamber of Commerce and Mission Bank for sponsoring the award and especially to our loyal customers without whom we would have no company. On behalf of Kingman Transportation Service, LLC, thank you Kingman!
