David Bussard, the current owner of Dodson Septic, kept the name from his step- father, from whom he inherited the business. Even more amazing is how long David Bussard brags about his son, Shannon, joining the business before he even mentions that he as the owner has been invited to join the National Business Advisory Council. It's obvious which accomplishment is more important to this old-fash- ioned businessman. "By my son working with me'now, it will mean many more years of work in Jefferson County," David said. About being made an Honorary Business Counselor to the Chairman of Small Business, David said he was looking forward to "quite a few functions and surveys," but had no idea why the national group would want him, or even how they found a local, family-owned business among all those they could have chosen. David's stepfather, the original Dodson, started the company 45 years ago. "My father was a very respected and very well-liked man, which means a lot to me," David said, "I still visit his grave every Sun- day." Since Dodson passed away, David has taken over the business, and now, after years of tagging along, "Bubba" (a.k.a. David's son Shannon), now 26, and a family friend Chris Kubic have been hired on. Another truck is to be added soon to the two the com- pany already owns, tripling Dodson's ability to serve Jefferson and Berkeley counties. "We really want to expand in Berkeley County," David said. Al- though David's mother did the secretarial work for her husband, David's wife has a job of her own, so he's hired on an office man- ager, Edie Cooper, to do the paperwork for him since his father passed away. Only 54, David hopes for many more years running the company, but intends to pass the business on to his son when the time comes.

"Honey Dippers" is a symbol of septic cleaning since the first septic tank cleaners removed the waste by hand dipping buckets and pouring into a horse-drawn tank. The cleaners soon became known as "Honey Dippers."
