Feb. 15, 2014: Cheers & Jeers

‘ISI is a great company’

Loretta M. Switzer of Kokomo sends this Cheer for ISI Trucking:

“My husband works for ISI Trucking Co. He had to miss a lot of work the past year because of family illness and the tornado.

“We wish to thank ISI for being so considerate and concerned for the well-being of our family.

“Thank you for being a good boss and a great human being. ISI is a great company.”

‘All the credit to Secure K9’

Monte and Susan Zinkan of Kokomo send this Cheer for Secure K9:

“Here are more kudos for Secure K9. Our dog, Rochester, has a totally different personality since we took the advice of Chris and Bre at Secure K9.

“They suggested we start feeding him a raw diet and walking him on a treadmill. He walks about one hour a day at 4.5 miles per hour. Along with that, we make his treats.

“The true test was when we had friends over, and they could not believe how his personality had changed. We give all the credit to Secure K9. They are located at 1105 Touby Pike (at the corner of North Street and Touby Pike).

“Thank you. I just wished we had met you about seven years ago!”

‘Just like to say thank you’

Kelly Kemper of Our Friends Closet sends this Cheer for two city officials:

“I am the manager of Our Friends Closet, and we have encountered a situation here at our business and could not find resolution.

“When City Councilman Bob Cameron found out, he moved to action. He and city Street and Refuse Director Joe Ewing took care of our issues, and we are genuinely appreciative.

“Our city workers have been working incredibly hard for months for our community. We would just like to say thank you!”
