    Seriously? Honored for longevity I guess – because I cant think of anything positive about the man that “almost gets the job done.”
    Why would Brewton honor a man with no integrity, one with no respect for others, one who cannot control his temper, and an all around self-centered individual????
    Especially when there SO many other REAL MEN in Brewton worthy of such honor.
