To many people, the word politician is a nasty name.
Maybe a four-letter word for some.
Over the past week, there was the unfortunate need to talk to people to get their reactions to Larry Belcher.
Belcher died in an auto accident Monday evening doing what he does best -- helping people.
Most of you will recognize Larry as the state representative for the people of the 49th District.
With only a few exceptions, it would be hard to find anyone who would say a bad word about the man.
