Pages honor Speaker on 66th birthday

House Speaker Bruce Newcomb had the giggles today, as the House pages honored him on the occasion of his 66th birthday, reports S-R reporter Meghann Cuniff. The House took a break for the unusual bit of business, and the pages presented Newcomb with cupcakes glowing with 66 candles and read him the following poem, written by page Carl Dayton:

It’s your birthday
And you’re turning 66.
And we hope by now, you’ve had your fun and kicks

But just in case
you have a bad day
slam that gavel down
and make everyone afraid

Especially that one page
who walked down in the well
know he won’t do that again
but wasn’t that real swell?

So in the end,
we hope your birthday’s great
Our hats off to you, Mr. Speaker
It’s you we appreciate!
