Amanda Yocum called Patty Chase Friday evening to get James and Rita Brogan’s phone number because they had seen their cows out on Little Hominy Ridge. So Patty called Rita and caught them in Lawrenceburg just heading home. They called Bruce Thies and he rushed out to help get them in. Three Switzerland County police officers: Bob Morton, Chad Terpening and Clint Earls had arrived on the scene and were helping Bruce when James and Rita got there. Rita wants to thank all who helped and said we are lucky to live in these small communities where everyone pitches in to help. Thanks to all.

James and Rita had attended the visitation for Delcenia Courter at Rising Sun and had gone on to Lawrenceburg to get feed for their cows. She said if they knew they were going to be so much trouble they might not have got the feed, just kidding of course. Rita said thanks to Amanda and Patty and all who called.
