‘What a wonderful community’
Mary Owsley of Sharpsville sends this Cheer for Howard County generosity:
Cheers to Howard County! How great to have such giving and dedicated people who make We Care the most outstanding event of the year.
“Doing this for all these years, what a wonderful community! Thanks to everyone who participates. Everyone comes together to make this happen, not expecting any recognition for all they do.
“I would also like to thank Angels For Kids and all of the others of Howard County who helped get Kayden and his mother, Sarah Woodruff, the handicap-accessible van they needed so badly. You are all just great!”
Kindness, consideration on display
Derinda Durham of Russiaville sends this Cheer for Adams Auto Sales:
I want to send a heartfelt Cheer out to Adams Auto Sales, Service and Collision Repair, located at 1400 E. Boulevard. On the recent Saturday that a snowstorm had dumped approximately 5 inches of snow on the ground, my daughter and I were running errands in Kokomo when her SUV began to smoke.
“Smoke billowed from under the hood and out of the vents as we traveled down U.S. 31. We immediately made the decision to pull off onto Boulevard. Spotting Adams Auto, we quickly pulled into the service parking lot.
“My daughter went in to explain our dilemma. Because it was a Saturday, Bill, the man who seemed to be in charge, explained no parts supply stores were open and the only auto tech working was only doing minor jobs, such as oil changes. We were advised not to drive any farther to prevent more damage. We were also told we could leave the vehicle there and they they could look at it on Monday.
“While trying to arrange for a ride home, we called several cab companies. One company didn’t answer the phone at all. Another told us that where we wanted to go, Russiaville, was too far, weather conditions were too bad and that they had too many reserved, priority pickups scheduled already.
