CORPUS CHRISTI - Longtime C.C.I.S.D. principal and current minister at South Shore Christian Church, Dick Peltz, retired today. Peltz played many roles in the community in education and religion; he even had a hand in gathering stuffed animals for children who were victimized by crime.
Parts of the congregation teared up as he said his farewell to his fellow Christians. He said health problems prohibited him from continuing as leader of the church.
A friend of his, Donna Watkins, said, "He's worked hard and he certainly deserves to have some time for his self."
John Seekamp will jump in to fill the role as minister of South Shore Christian Church.
