Braxton-Bragg Beefs Up Texas Presence
Braxton-Bragg answers the customer call for more pres- ence in Texas by expanding its Van fleet and hiring experienced sales consultant Al Alvarez to ser- vice the San Antonio, Austin and Dallas markets. Alvarez, a United States Army veteran, has nearly 20 years of successful sales ex- perience, including eight years at Makita, making him familiar with Braxton-Bragg’s customer base.
“I know that shop guys love the van, because they don’t have to wait to get the tools they need, and can get them on the spot,” said Alvarez. “When you have to go through a few steps and wait for product, it can slow you down. I can’t wait to help them out with van service to their door, and start making Braxton-Bragg conver- sions in my territory.”
Braxton-Bragg plans to have Alvarez begin visiting its Texas customers in April.

       On the Hook
Alas, it was a school day, the four teenage boys were riding to class in their friend Juniors car. As they crossed the Blue Springs Bridge and stared at the enticing water below, the temptation was
too strong to resist.
“There’s a bunch of Dad’s gear
in the trunk,” said Junior. “ Let’s stop and fish for a few minutes. Let’s vote on it.” The motion passed unanimously.
Naturally, a “few minutes” turned into more than an hour. When they finally did roll onto campus, the school’s resource officer quickly ushered them into
the Principal’s office.
“Sorry we’re late, Mr.
McGinnis,” Junior explained. “We couldn’t help it. We had a flat tire. We didn’t have a spare, either. So we had to walk back to Wally’s service station for help.”
The other boys nodded in agreement.
“Well, accidents do happen,” the principal consoled. “I understand
completely. But you boys are late, and the school board reg- ulations require that you fill out an official excuse form.” He passed out pencils and paper and sent each boy to one of the four corners of the office, facing the wall.
“Now,” said Mr. McGinnis, “write down which one of the tires went flat.”
 was a warm May morn- ing, perfect for fishing.
