Readers Say Thanks

Thanks to area businesses who volunteered and helped football at Glenwood Springs High School, including McDonald’s, Burger King, Wal-Mart, Kmart, Krispy Kreme in Grand Junction, White Linen in Rifle, Coca-Cola, Valley View Hospital Cafe, and Pepperidge Farm ” Tim Richardson.

Glenwood Springs High School football coach

Wednesday the 9th was a milestone in my young life. I had my first flat tire. In the Rifle City Market parking lot no less.

With a half hour to get to work I was very worried. If need be I could have changed it.

But I’ve only ever practiced once. So as a normal 17-year-old girl, I called my mom! Then a gentleman near my father’s age asked if I was in need of help. I gratefully accepted his offer, and he had it fixed in 15 minutes flat.

I never learned his name, but I am eminently grateful to him.

But this letter is more than a thank-you note. My faith in people has been renewed. We are constantly bombarded by negative things. So I thought that perhaps my little experience might encourage all of you who read of it. Thank you.
