News from the fencepost: Doanes and cool cars, in education and seeking Quinn Leonard Doane

January 15, 2014 Blog Comments

From Wrestling Inc, we hear that Former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) star Ken Doane is taking bookings for weddings. In addition to making his fame in wrestling, he is now an ordained minister from The Universal Life Church and has been officiating weddings since 2009.

This Ken Doane in no way should be confused with Kenneth M. Doane who does not officiate at weddings, but is the President of the Doane Family Association.

We keep seeing automobile photos by Chris Doane, here’s one for the BMW 320i that comes with a sticker price of $32,750 which is more than what half of what the Doanes in the Northwest paid for their first homes.

If you’re more of a Lexus fan see Chris Doane’s picture of the ES350 with all the ice of an early January day nicely cleaned off. And for a humbler, more compact approach the Mazda 2 Touring would look nice in the driveway of that Doane house that cost less than the BMW.

Paul Doane, SPTRFA.

In education we hear the voice of Paul Doane, Executive Director of the St. Paul Teachers’ Retirement Fund Association, who is lobbying against merging the teacher’s pension funds of St. Paul and Duluth into the statewide Teachers Retirement Association, saying that remaining independent would be a more “economically viable approach.” Kudos to Paul Doane for speaking out against the mergers $61 million cost to the taxpayers of Minnesota.

And a request from Jim Mueller to locate any relatives of Quinn Leonard Doane, who appears to have een born in Washington State in 1910 and passed away 1985 in San Pedro, Calif. Mueller has his yearbook and is looking to make a connection.

Anyone related to Quinn?
