The clip I posted two years ago was removed for copyright issues so here's a summary clip from the classic WKRP in Cincinnati episode.

Katie and I were on our way to Beaver Mountain offices for our season pass photo and decided to drive by to see if Grandpa's headstone was standing tall and lo and behold, it was. Katie's cell phone captures the look, but the color's a bit blue. In better light it looks really good. The first photo also captures the approaching storm front on the other side of the valley. The Beav opens December 3, so any and all who can join with us on December 4 (Saturday) for a corduroy run or two in honor of posse member Papa John will be welcomed.

This is what I wanted to say tonight, but Jay Monson said do you want to say thanks ? I didn't dare take the time for my little talk.
Thank you very much for this honor.
In 1958 we moved to Cache Valley, we found a house in Providence and John served on the City Council. He saw one of the older men in town building a house and told the older gentleman he would need to buy a building permit. The man said he wouldn't. John told him the law said he had to get a building permit and he told John that his grandparents were some of the first settlers in Providence and he absolutely would not buy a building permit. He walked away and I'm not sure how the story ended.
About 5 years ago he came home from a meeting, he was so tired and discouraged. I told him that he was nearly 80 and why didn't he just quit. He said that he said he would serve on that committee and that he wouldn't quit. It made me think of Horton the Elephant. Horton promised Mazey the Lazy Bird that he would sit on her egg 'til it hatched. Horton sat through bad weather, hunters with guns, people who teased him etc. All Horton would say is, "I meant what I said and I said what I meant, an elephant is faithful 100%" This reminds me of John, "He meant what he said and he said what he meant John Emmett has integrity and loves Logan 100%."
