Letter To The Editor – True “Good Samaritans”Oct 18th, 2011 | By Submitted | Category: Editorials
Last Wednesday evening we were traveling on I-10 (Madison area) toward our home when a harrowing experience, a tire shredding apart on our car sent us careening off I-10 after doing a 360 on the highway and sending our blood pressure above the limit. As we were trying to contact AAA for road service with darkness coming on, a most kind man named Dale Kinnard pulled to the side in his truck to see if he could help. After calming our nerves with reassuring words and a cell phone call, we soon had a “blue light” cruiser behind us for protection. The officer with the “blue light” vehicle, Officer W. Walker, also helped with changing of a tire and additional calming influence. We consider ourselves very lucky to be in a state with such caring individuals and want to make a public thank you to both of them for service rendered above and beyond the call of duty. We hope this item will be published in your paper to show the folks of Madison County how lucky they are to have folks like this as neighbors.
