Randy Hughes, Mr. Landtrust, started life out on the wrong side of the railroad tracks. His father was an alcoholic, and left his mother to raise four children on a clerk’s wages. None of his relatives owned their own business . . . everyone worked for wages.
His father charged the weekly groceries so that the family would have food on the table. There was no stable income for any future education much less the current needs of the family.
