Good for You week of 12-25-08


Arturo Lopez and George Adams! Melissa Skirvin of Switzerland County has nominated Arturo Lopez and George Adams for this week’s “Good for You!” award.

Melissa Skirvin writes: “I would like to nominate Arturo Lopez and George Adams for the ‘Good for You’ award.

“I went to Vevay on Tuesday morning, December 16th, to run some errands and when I left the house it had just started to snow. I was only gone 30 minutes, but when I tried to get back home I got stuck on Patton Hollow Road.

“My husband and son were both out of town, so I called my brother-in-law, George Adams, to ask what I should do. He told me to wait in the car and he would pick me up.

“As I waited, a van was trying to come down the hill, and I knew that it would not be able to pass me, so I got out and started to walk up the hill. The man got out and asked if he could help. He then introduced himself as Arturo Lopez.

“I told him that I tried to back down the hill, but I kept sliding. He said that if I wanted him to, he could back it down for me – which he did without incident.

“I think it restores faith in people when a complete stranger is willing to help you. Then my brother-in-law came and was able to turn my car around and drive it back down the hill, where it was parked until the hill was cleared.”

Vevay Newspapers says “Good for You”, Arturo Lopez and George Adams. For being caring residents of Switzerland County, you will be receiving a rose compliments of Edelweiss Florists in Vevay.
