This month we’d like to shine the light on someone who might be unfamiliar to most. Clayton “Clay” Kautzman. Unless you need to be taken for a ride. No, not that type of ride…a TAP ride! Clay is one of our top TAP drivers, taking homebound seniors to various places four days a week. It was his wife, Virginia, another TAP driver, who got him to start driving for us. Not just a TAP driver who also helps out serving dinners at our Thanksgiving but also delivers meals for our Operation Senior Claus. He’d like to do more but, while retired, he still is quite busy as a handyman at all of his and Virginia’s rental properties. Originally from Mandan, North Dakota, he came out to California due to his stint in the Marines. After getting out he went to school to learn more about computers. Following graduation he went to work for Western Union, GTE, then as a contractor out at Norton. Married to Virginia they have two boys, six grandkids, and one great-grandkid. Thanks Clay for taking time out of your busy schedule to take care of others.

Well you just dont know who to trust here at the Highland Senior Center. At least not when it comes to the Liars Club. Last month we had some of the biggest bald-faced liars descend on our center. However, that was a good thing. Once again we hosted our very popular Liars Club. Back to join us were our very own prevaricators: Ed Ford, Chris Libra, Bob Harvey, Danni Wilson, Kevon Kenyon.

This game show is one of the centers favorites and always brings out an enthusiastic crowd. Our yarn spinners do such as great job that the audience is routinely split on whos telling the truth and whos full of it (baloney that is). A lot of times the correct answer is exactly that last choice you would have made.

Our liars answers ranged from outrageous to ribald to incredulous. Yet, invariably, it was an answer, the most of us wouldn\'t have guessed in a million years, and many of our audience members were misled. Those who didn\'t guess right, didn\'t feel so bad, as they still got some ice cream thanks to the sponsors of the event, Humana.

Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy the game and we hope to see you at the next meeting of the Liars Club.
