The great, helpful men of Oakhurst

Letter to the editor 11/1/12 edition

Dear Editor,

I wanted to share some thoughts about living in the Oakhurst area. I love my home and neighbor hood.

Since I have been here, my car has had two flat tires, thanks to picking up nails. A couple of years ago, as I was going to pick up friends, I realized I had a flat. I pulled off and was trying to contact my friends when a man stopped. He was an ex-Marine and in no time, he had the spare on and I was on my way.

The second flat was more recent. I was stopped at the traffic signal at the intersection of Highway 49 and Highway 41. A man ran up and knocked on my window to tell me I had a flat. I drove through and stopped at a safe parking place to call my roadside service. The same man that knocked on my window pulled up beside my car and told me to drive to the gas station nearby to get air and then go to the tire shop to have the tire fixed.

I did as told, and everyone was very helpful. I am so thankful for the great, helpful men in this area.

On another note, why is it so hard to get companies to respond to requests for estimates on jobs needing to get done around my property? I call several, and maybe one responds. In this economy, you would think they would be jumping at the chance for work.
