Remembering Cliff Kopp

Cliff loved puzzles and was a puzzle himself. He was challenging; running you through a series of innocuous questions inevitably leading to a conclusion he hand-picked for you. Cliff had many confusing personas; the unassailable hero dentist, the community builder, the mischief-prone Rotarian, and the relentless, obnoxious contrarian. He remarked that his favorite compliment came from Mayor Billy Kenoi as Cliff walked in, “you see that guy,” said Billy, “he’s a son of a bitch but he gets things done.” Cliff highly valued both descriptions. Nevertheless, Cliff was truly pleasurable company.

We didn’t know her or the family, but nevertheless it was heartbreaking. Our sympathy goes out to the family and friends, and even to the driver, who now has to try to come to terms with this for the rest of his life.

    I read Charles King’s letter of Oct. 25 with strong reaction. The sheer weight of the National Debt is more than we can sustainably carry. It presents clear and present danger to our immediate future and our nation’s future.
