‘Dedication above and beyond’
Jim Bennett sends this Cheer for Cracker Barrel:
“Near the first of May, I went to the Cracker Barrel to find a double-wide rocking chair to match the one my wife now enjoys. I explained to the girls there that I wanted to find one for our daughters to give their mother for Mother’s Day. I was told at the time they would call their supplier to see if they could get one in time for Mother’s Day delivery.
“On Monday, April 29, Audrey called from Cracker Barrel to say the factory could not promise delivery in time, but she had found one at a Cracker Barrel in Illinois and she would go there to pick it up that evening so we could have it in time.
“Now that is what I call ‘dedication above and beyond the job’s duties.’
“A big thank-you to all of the girls, and one guy also, for putting tears of joy in the eyes of our daughters’ mother on Mother’s Day morning.”
‘Call Mike first!’
Linda Moorman sends this Cheer for a local business:
“I’d like to send a Cheer to Mike Wyant and Mike’s Sewer Services.
“We were experiencing problems with our tub draining. After calling a local company and having its serviceman try for a couple of hours to open the drain, we were charged more than $100 and had standing water in the tub, which we didn’t have before he tried to clear the drain.
“We called Mike Wyant of Mike’s Sewer Services. He had it opened in less than 15 minutes and charged us less than the previous company. We would recommend that anyone having a drainage problem call Mike first!”
A common-sense law
Lora Miller of Clermont sends this Cheer for state government:
“A warm thank-you to Gov. Mike Pence and our state Legislature for passing a bill that goes after methamphetamine without restricting my access to cold and allergy medicines containing pseudoephedrine (PSE).
“Two weeks ago, Gov. Pence signed S.B. 496 into law. This is a bill that represents a step in the right direction in Indiana’s fight against meth. It provides reasonable limits for the amount of PSE an individual can purchase while maintaining open and affordable access to cold and allergy medicines for law-abiding consumers.
“As an allergy sufferer, I find this last part particularly important.”
