Congratulations, Randy Morin!
Randy Morin has been the voice of golf at PST for the past three years. His hearty laugh and cowboy stomp will be greatly missed around the Omaha office as he moves on to his next adventures during his retirement. Gloomy days would have a quick turnaround with each flash of his beaming smile and encouraging comments to his team and fellow office members! Thank you for everything you have brought to PST!

Words of wisdom or quote to live by…?
“Luck Favors The Prepared”
And my favorite
By Charles Swindoll
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than
success, than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make
or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we
have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people
will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can
do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I
react to it. And so it is with you, we are in charge of our attitudes.
