The Tarnished Truth
*** Vol III *** May 2004 *** Issue VII ***

Howdy Folks - Welcome to The Tarnished Truth !

First of all let me apologize for this issue being late. But due to the vagaries of computer science – it seems it was destined to be so. I’m still working on recovering what data I can from my home computer, but in the meantime I will be able to continue by use of my laptop. ;-}

WINS recently held yet another Special Election for the office of Treasurer. Everybody is pretty much aware of the circumstances that necessitated this election so I won’t go into it now. Suffice it to say that Ken Hughes won the election and is the new WINS Treasurer – Congratulations Ken ! You can read all about the election in this month’s President’s Corner.

I would also like to offer my congratulations and thanks to Lawrence Oei WINS #359 for the integral part in bringing about a new feature to the WINS web site – the WINS Member Collecting Interests page. The new page can be found HERE - and I urge all active members to participate. And if you are not an active member – then please consider becoming one. After all – the primary focus of WINS is all about sharing. ;-}

And everybody please read about and enter a new contest, sponsored by our Treasurer, Ken Hughes – NEW CONTEST.

That's about it for now - I hope you enjoy this as well as future issues of - The Tarnished Truth.

Doug Prather, editor
