Thank you, Peter Main, I have met Peter Main on several occasions (even shaking his hand), and I think he is probably a good person with a lot of common sense.

Print Headline: Safari is not closing

Sponsor Content


Leon is a gentleman, a great manager and entrepreneur that believes in helping the Gentry community and all the people of Arkansas with a terrific drive-through Safari, where kids of all ages learn about nature, conservation, sustainability, and meet face to face a variety of exotic and endangered species.

Leon is a hard worker that leads by example. His family, employees and friends love what he does.

His priorities are clear: take care of the customers and take care of the wildlife under his care, according to USDA regulations.

We applaud Leon for his courage, determination and pride, and stand with him shoulder to shoulder as we try to learn how to protect our own families and private property.

Leon is not alone in his struggle; there were many other people that missed the Appreciation Day. He could have had not only 3,000 but 10,000 of his friends, a clear message to AEP that the people of Arkansas expect AEP to always do the right thing, every time, and respect their customers and communities. This is what Nick Akins says to investors on the AEP website.

It is never too late to improve corporate behavior.

We are thankful for the thousands of AEP employees and their work to keep the lights on.

We hope AEP top executives will change direction and think first of their customers. AEP can learn a thing or two from Leon Wilmoth and his awesome family.

Thank you Leon!
