Nurses, poll workers aid another
Howard County Clerk Kim Wilson sends this Cheer for those who helped keep a poll worker alive:
“On May 6, I had a poll worker who collapsed while working at Bon Air School. The two school nurses and the other poll workers went into swift action.
“The school nurses, Wayne Meyer, Dennis Sanders, Marian Parker, Victory Hogan, Walter Parker, Joe Gaillard, Brenda Snell and Carol Middleton probably saved their co-worker’s life. He was flown by helicopter to St. Vincent’s Hospital, where he remains in ICU.”
‘Among such great neighbors’
Dave Kauble sends this Cheer to all who helped his wife, Deb, and him through the Nov. 17 tornado:
“The neighborhood church members were absolutely tremendous. So was Red Cross. While we were working, volunteers were coming up and down the street with food, water and other necessities.
“Right after I climbed out of the rubble of our home at 1540 Quail Run Drive as the tornado was moving on, I heard a gas main spewing by my neighbor’s house. No sooner had I knocked on my neighbor’s door and evacuated our neighbor and her daughter, I was astounded to see the Fire Station 6 responders walking around the corner of Goyer and Quail Run Drive. I couldn’t believe they’d covered that much ground on foot, through the absolute devastation along Boulevard and Goyer Road so fast.
“Those responders are absolutely tremendous and will have my undying gratitude. They got that gas leak stopped or the tornado damage would have been the least of our worries.
“We moved into our home at Quail Run Drive in August 2013 and barely knew any of our neighbors. After our home was totally ruined, we had no shelter. Neighbors whom we had never met came to our assistance.
