Courthouse fixture Terry Moore Jr. is doing ... fantastic. “I should say, 'I'm doing fun-TAH-stick,'” the mail clerk says in his best British accent, while ripping open a box of copy paper. “I've got a bloody well right to say!” This cracks him up, and the 43-year-old drops his voice: “Bond. James Bond.” He laughs some more. And in the time it takes to count out three packets of white copy machine paper for the Douglas County Treasurer's Office, Terry covers considerable conversational ground. Movies. Weather. And a subject that is tireless for him: music.

His FAVORITE BEST band of all times is KISS and the best guitarist is Ace Frehley, which is why people call Terry “Ace,” but it's TOO BAD that Gene and Paul of Kiss got Ace kicked out, and that was a bad deal, just a BAD DEAL, but Terry did get to meet Paul, and he likes him, and he's cool, and he doesn't want to hurt Gene and Paul's feelings or, frankly, get them riled and stirred-up angry by talking about them.
