When Charley Feix attended this year’s Chamber of Commerce awards banquet, his circumstances were somewhat different from other honorees.
He was told he was going because his son-in-law was being recognized as the Farmer of the Year. And, indeed, Troy Bradford did earn that tribute.
However, Feix himself was also to be one of the honorees that night as the 2011 Citizen of the Year.
As his volunteer inventory was read, Feix was holding his breath while his wife Susan and one of his daughters, Mary Ware, held back sheepish grins.
