Recently I went to Walt Kofski’s funeral. Walt was the president of the MNCPA in 1964-65 and was our oldest living past chair. Walt would have turned 95 in September. I got to know him when we started to have past chair get-togethers several years ago and his son John would bring him to the events. Walt was a delight to talk to and he had a great sense of humor. At the visitation, John had put out for viewing Walt’s original CPA certificate from Minnesota, his Life Membership Award from the MNCPA, one of his early 10 key calculators, and an early accounting textbook that he had kept.
Attending Walt’s funeral made me think other MNCPA leaders that I have been privileged to know. Rholan Larson was chair in 1970-71 and he passed on in 2011 after a long and distinguished career. Currently we have 36 living past chairs.
Finding time to dedicate to serving your profession is not always easy. The MNCPA has been very fortunate that so many talented CPAs have stepped forward to lead our board of directors with dedication and strength.

I often hear people snayig that they'd like to start making some extra money to complement their full time job, but they don't know what to do. I also didn't know what to do until last year when I decided to teach myself.If you have any questions on how I did this send me an? email at

For that matter, dear edtoir, it's either due to carelessness or dishonesty when it's stated that Michael Schiavo was trying to fulfil his wife’s wishes to end her life with dignity after becoming brain dead. Terry Schiavo's autopsy found brain damage, not brain death. As a lifelong Democrat who left the party in disgust after it closed ranks around Bill Clinton even when it became inarguably true that he had violated the civil rights of an employee while he was governor of Arkansas, I want to tell you, this sort of trickiness with words and principles is like deja vu all over again.I will not vote for Jean Schmidt. I don't like her and I can't stand the sight of her. While I have serious differences with some of Paul Hackett's views, I feel strongly that he has character, principles, and integrity to make a superior representative to Congress. Please don't spoil with slick tricky weasel-y punditry the support he deserves from constituents like me. http://evwymobb.com [url=http://hkeolqfsmnz.com]hkeolqfsmnz[/url] [link=http://qvmdigzpg.com]qvmdigzpg[/link]
