    THANKS to the kind and honest stranger who found my MasterCard at the Charleswood library and turned it in to staff.

  • Meal free for mourners

    03/25/2015 2:00 PM

    MY friends Aileen, Evelyn, Katherine and Marilyn and I gathered at the Olive Garden on Portage Avenue to grieve the loss of a friend and celebrate her life.

    Staff surmised it was a special occasion. Ron Welgush, a manager, approached our table and greeted us, asking us about the occasion.

    Upon hearing the reason for our gathering, he informed us our lunch, beverages and dessert would be complimentary.

    It was an incredible act of kindness, bringing tears to our eyes as we thought about Doreen.

    We were sure she was looking over us and laughing about us getting a free lunch.

    Thank you, Ron, and the Oliver Garden.

  • Volunteer firefighter took charge

    03/24/2015 2:00 PM

    AS I was driving my son to his medical appointment, we were T-boned by a pickup truck crossing Route 90.

    Our car spun around, and we ended up in the ditch. Before I finished my call to 911, Gerrit — a volunteer firefighter with the Stony Mountain Fire Department who was on his way to work — stopped to make sure we were OK. He went through his routine: disabled the car, ensured we were safe, checked that my neck was OK and that I knew the day of the week (oh yeah, it is Monday, not Tuesday), and waited there until the city fire truck arrived.

    It was nice to have someone take charge of the situation. We want to thank him for going out of his way to help out.

    I hope he doesn’t have to make stops like that very often.

    Thanks, Gerrit.

    — Cathy and Greg Coss



  • Grocery store supervisor is super

    03/23/2015 2:00 PM

    BACK in the winter of 2013, on a day with a wind chill of -40, a customer came into our Extra Foods store in Westdale.

    We knew he had medical issues, but he was almost finished his shopping before he started to have symptoms. We sat him down and calmed him down.

    He didn’t want an ambulance, but he was in no shape to drive home.

    My front-end supervisor, Cheryl Knutson, offered to drive him home. Not only did she take him home, she made sure all his groceries were taken care of, then made the 10-minute walk back to the store. Cheryl inspired me that day. I am an impressed co-worker.
