He meant what he said, and he said what he meant
Of all the stories written by Dr. Seuss, we don’t remember one involving a sheriff, a newspaper editor and a restaurateur.
But those three characters did come together Monday to celebrate the words of Dr. Seuss at Chinook, Felida and Fruit Valley elementary schools.
Here’s Clark County Sheriff Garry Lucas, editor Lou Brancaccio and Mark Matthias, philanthropist and owner of Beaches Restaurant & Bar.
Now we’ll honor Lucas, Matthias and Brancaccio with three Dr. Seuss quotes we felt fit best:
Sheriff Lucas: “I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”
Matthias: “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go …”
Brancaccio: “The writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.”
