‘They know how to treat people’
Mary Ellen Brookshire of Kokomo sends this Cheer for Red Lobster:
“A few weeks ago, myself and three other ladies were planning lunch at the Red Lobster. I picked up one of the ladies and was told by her helper, at this time, she was wheelchair-bound.
“Her chair was put in my trunk, she was settled in and we were on our way.
“Upon arriving at the door of the Red Lobster, I knew none of our ladies were able to handle the chair and get the person inside the restaurant. I went inside and asked the hostess if there were any men available who could assist me.
“Immediately, two gentlemen arrived. They were successful in getting my friend settled inside. When we were ready to leave, they were there and got us on the road again.
“If you feel that Kokomo has a lot of eating places with no assitance for handicapped people, remember the Red Lobster. I am proud to say they know how to treat people, and their food is outstanding. Kokomo is lucky to have them.”
‘There’s something missing’
Dave Gibson, a songwriter who worked at the old Kingston plant for 23 years, sends these lyrics to a new song he dedicates to all his former co-workers:
“There’s something missing
“On the north side of town
“‘Cause just the other day
“They took the old Kingston tower down
“For so long it was a landmark
“It stood stall just like a shrine
“But like so many other things
