JEERS to the city worker who came down the night before the Three Rivers Festival parade and put caution tape around a prime parade viewing spot so that his daughter and her friends could show up right before the start and plop their chairs down in front of those of us who had been avoiding the area. JEERS also to the police officer who enforced this farce. Talk about teaching your kids entitlement.
SANDY BAILEY Fort Wayne
CHEERS to DeKalb County deputy Larry Elzey for his quick response, professionalism and help when my daughters car caught fire the evening of July 10. The quick and brave response from the Concord Township fire department was also appreciated. Officer Elzey stayed with us until the car was towed away. I really appreciated his courtesy and willingness to help.
JOHN BATTERSHELL Hicksville, Ohio
CHEERS to the residents of New Haven. During May, Super Wash car washes across the country participated in an annual FoodRaiser. A portion of the proceeds was donated to local food pantries. National donations totaled $54,735. A donation of $304 has been made to a local food pantry. Thanks, New Haven, for your patronage that resulted in this donation. Supporting food pantries is an awesome opportunity to make a positive difference right here at home. Please accept our gratitude for your support of the local food pantries through the Super Wash FoodRaiser.
SUSAN E. BLACK-BETH COO, Super Wash, Inc.
CHEERS to the United Way, Lutheran Health Network and Community Transportation Network for stepping up and filling a need in our community. It is great that they are funding the Kindergarten Countdown program. There are so many children who need pre-kindergarten classes. Where is the state in all this?
JUDY BOLINGER Fort Wayne
CHEERS to the young lady who paid for my sons and my lunch at the Great Wall on Dupont Road. I had received a gift certificate to that restaurant for my 92nd birthday on July 3 and we were there to use it. What a pleasant surprise.
MARGE and MIKE BOURNE Fort Wayne
CHEERS to the woman at Buckner Park who found my purse and returned it to me when I came back for it. I realized Id left it while loading my kids after theyd been at the splash pad. It was a huge relief to see it after getting all the way home and realizing it wasnt in the van. You made my day much brighter.
WENDY CRAMER Fort Wayne
CHEERS to the lady who paid for our meal at Steak n Shake on Illinois Road on July 10. We were sure surprised when the waitress told us our bill was paid.
GUY and ELLEN HIVELY Columbia City
CHEERS to all those who shared their artistic talents with the chalk art on Main Street as part of the Three Rivers Festival. I am always impressed by the creativity and talent I see there every year. CHEERS especially to Nick Sprunger for his portrayal of his beloved family dog Bogey, who passed away recently.
