Tip of the Hat

Saturday, November 17, 2012 - 12:01 am

A tip of the hat to Lane Middle School football team and coach Rick Vance for an awesome undefeated season and also going on to win the city championship, defeating Jefferson Middle School 40-0. Thank you to Channel 21 and Tommy Schoegler for their coverage of the championship game.

A big thank you to Powell Overhead Garage Doors, located in New Haven. A few weeks back, they installed a door in my barn. Upon completion, I paid them in cash and suspected I had overpaid by $100. However, after counting the money in front of me, we both decided I had not. A short time later, I was contacted by the owner of the company, Terry, and he stated I indeed had overpaid, and the bills were stuck together. He promptly drove the refunded money back to me (quiet a distance for him), and handed it back. Integrity and honesty are still alive, whether your company is big or small. They now have a lifelong customer. Way to go, guys!
