I would also like to thank them. There were out Saturday morning when I was heading to Columbus for the day and on my way home that evening I noticed several bags of garbage that they had picked up. It is really kind of the volunteers to do this dirty job. And shame on all the litterbugs, especially since this area is supposed to be in honor of the servicemen and servicewomen of our military.

Mr. L.O. Metts of Willow Road-Dougherty County made MY day...and SAVED my phone! As we know there are not too many things worst than losing one's cell phone. The first thoughts..I have lost all my numbers...the next thought ..back to your carrier's store or worse....then you think..if I found it by retracking my movements for the day..there is small chance it could be found. "We fear the worst". But after losing my cell phone at the outdoor mailboxes at the Eastside Post Office...my first thought would have been that the next approaching vehicle will find it a crashing roll. But Mr. Metts seen it laying in the streets ...stopped & recovered it and awaited for a call to identify its' owner. I called my MYSELF(lucky ME??) and an American Hero (Mr. Metts) answered and provided his location and directions. What make him an American Hero...an Air Force Veteran, a father, a great neigbor(I bet!) and just a TRUE..GOOD...PERSON!! Aren't we all?????
