LETTER Concluded from p. 1 letter. The Chief and his crew did not pick up their tools and leave. Instead, they began moving tables, lots of tables and dozens of chairs. When the flooded area Was vacated, someone returned to the fire station hnd ar- rived with several squeegees. This crew worked with Tim and me until all the standing water was removed. This, I had not expected. Mike Myer of Myer Lawn Ser- vice stopped by the church to give me an invoice for sanding our parking lot in last week's ice storm. When he saw what was happening, he ran home for a pair of boots and joined us. No one left until the water was re- moved. I have lived in this city for twenty-four years now. I am continually amazed with the quality of our neigh- bors. We at St. John's want to publicly thank Chief Dustin Huston, Assistant Chief Ryan Coburn, Captain Doug Richardson, Fire Medic Chet Darst and Mike Myer who did not quit until the job was done. /s/Domonick Cimino St. John the Apostle Catholic Church 720 Orchard Hills Drive Norwalk, IA 50211 "The codfish lays ten thousand eggs, The homely hen lays one.
