Counselor Rod Smith



Rod Smith took a week off before heading back to his old job working at the law firm of Avera & Avera.

He showed up at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, to the surprise of his colleagues.

"When you fall off a horse, the first thing you do is get back in the saddle," said Smith who is also looking into some consulting and teaching opportunities. "Now I got to find the clients and tell them I'm back."

"Once the voters have given us an unexpected sabbatical, even an unrequested one, I think the best thing to do is go back to what you do best."
