Readers Say Thanks

I live in Littleton. My sister came to visit me from Erie, Pa and on March 1, we decided to take the train to your lovely little town to have a stress free weekend, soaking, shopping, eating etc.

If you can remember, that was the weekend of storms throughout the country that impacted the train schedule significantly

The whole weekend was a comedy of errors. It was raining instead of snowing and the ambience of sitting in the pools wasn’t quite there in the pouring rain. But we enjoyed Iron Mountain and were ultimately very relaxed when we left about 9pm We taxied downtown and it wasn’t until we were seated at Doc Holliday’s that I realized I was missing my phone. The waitress at Doc’s was kind enough to call us a taxi to get back to the Hot Springs, they in turn said they had the phone and would wait even until the pools closed at 10 to hand the phone over to me.

Now, we are on the corner in the pouring rain, waiting for the taxi. It was cold and nasty, and the hot tub buzz was over. We waited over 30 minutes and were told that the taxis were slammed because of the rain.

We were leaving in the am and I really wanted to get my phone. We were pretty bummed.

A police car pulled up while we were waiting and the officer went across the street to take care of business. When he returned 15 minutes later, I approached him. I told Officer Logan our dilemma and without missing a beat, he opened the door and escorted us into the back seat. He drove us to Iron Mountain, waited for me to get my phone and drove us back to the Hotel Colorado.

He was very kind and really saved the day for us! I have been thinking about this ever since and wanted to make sure that I gave a shout out to all the kind people we encountered while we were visiting.

You have a great community, from the restaurant workers to the retail owners to the Police Dept.

Thanks Officer Logan for making our day and supporting this great community!

Ruby Benison,
