    Sad to hear that Manny, me meeting you in person is one of the reasons I decided to join the NTA in hopes that a person of your character could have made a change for the better. Best of luck to you Manny.

    When I spoke to you on the phone, I mistakenly assumed "family problems" when you told me about your parents.
    I sincerely apologize for this error. I should not have assumed such.

    NTA Pres.

    Manny...... You're a stand up guy, and its a sad day for the NTA with you leaving the board... :( Can't blame you thou... I'll save you a seat at the pool during the next NTA convention.. :) And when your ready to run again.... You've got my vote..

    Bill...... My father taught me years ago never to assume..... Looks like to me, you and the gang just made an Axx out of you and the NTA by running Manny off...

    Jim.... NTA member and proud of IT !!!

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Jim, looks like you didn't listen to your father well enough then. I don't know of any ONE who ran Manny off. Each of us is responsible for our own decisions and if we allow others to influence that, then we've probably only used that as an excuse.

    I might not be the bestest speller but come on George I know you can read.... It's right there in Manny's post... "feelings of unethical practices of some board members".... All I'm assuming is that Bill is part of the "some board members"...

    Manny I don't know whats going on like most others . I'm proud to say I voted for you and if your resigning then it has to be something that goes against your fine upstanding character, that you want no part of . The short time I trained with you was great , and two weeks there I never saw or heard you do anything , but be a gentleman and fine teacher. I never fail to brag on you when ever I can. The respect I could see and hear when you talked of your family, Saddens me to think anyone could say anything about you and your family. Hope that in no way I overstepped any bounds here but I'm no speech writer just angry when a friend I admire gets talked about. I hope all of your family is well, Carlton Cain

    It was good talking to you the other day, Manny. I appreciate all you have tried to do for the NTA membership, and having been your friend for over 18 years, I know that if YOU say something in the NTA smells foul, then brother, it is so. We'll talk.
