CHEERS to Fort Wayne police officer Shane Carrier. His presence this Christmas season in our subdivision ensured the safety of the spirited children visiting Santa. His good will combined with a professional approach is certainly a plus for our city.
JERRY MAZOCK Santa in the Emerald Lake Subdivision Fort Wayne
CHEERS to the five adjacent homeowners on Virginia Hills Court in Autumn Ridge who keep their sidewalks clear of snow. While walking our dogs, I met Jim Bushey with his snow blower and tipped my hat and bowed to him. Even dogs and firefighters will appreciate how he cleared around the fire hydrant. JEERS to those neighbors who fail to do so. I wish you would be walkers and face sliding, splashing and speeding cars after a heavy snow.
DAVE RIDDERHEIM Fort Wayne
CHEERS to the honest person who returned my purse, completely intact, to Kohls Northcrest in late December. Kohls personnel did not get the name of the good Samaritan so I could not thank them for their honest deed.
PAULA WERTMAN Fort Wayne
CHEERS to the anonymous person at Casa Mare who paid the dinner check for me and a friend on Jan. 17. It was such a pleasant surprise and a reminder of the generosity that is a hallmark of Fort Wayne.
MARGARET ANKENBRUCK Fort Wayne
CHEERS to our Westwood Valley hero Randy Beck who has plowed driveways for many of his neighbors this winter. He is truly our snow angel.
ALAN and MAUREEN GAFF Fort Wayne
CHEERS to the gentleman driving Jan.16 and the couple walking who stopped and helped me up after I fell in front of the Roanoke Library. I am sorry I did not get your names.
PAM WORREL Roanoke
CHEERS to Keith Wine for keeping our driveway cleared during the winter. We are elderly and neither of us can shovel our drive. It is comforting to know we can get in or out in an emergency.
CHARLIE and JUDIE THOMAS Fort Wayne
CHEERS to the people who helped when we were in an auto accident at Wallen Road and Newberry Drive on Jan. 13. The police officers were polite and efficient as were the ambulance attendants and tow truck driver. An extra CHEER to the lady who came from her house and directed traffic in the cold, as well as the lady who was behind us and stopped to be sure everyone was all right and waited for the authorities to arrive. Their presence made an unpleasant experience a bit easier to bear.
LINDA and DOUG DOERR Fort Wayne
CHEERS to the young woman who paid for the three-figure amount of my groceries at Coldwater Wal-Mart on Jan. 17. She declined to be identified. I will pay it forward to some of those hungry/homeless individuals who frequent nearby intersections.
DICK KIERSTEAD Fort Wayne
