Victim of fall grateful for aid

Published: Saturday, June 15, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

I found out there are still good people in the world when I fell in the Walmart parking lot on May 31.

One person ran and got store people out; one person ran and got ice for my foot, which was swelling; and four or more people picked me up and put me in my truck.

A great thanks to the two Walmart ladies who stayed with me until my daughter came to take me home, and thanks to my daughter for taking off work.

Last of all, if you were there, thank you. Bless you all.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
