Blog in the hat

Monday

 

You’ll see when the Sentinel comes out this week that we have named the two girls caught in the high water in the river last week. It was news, they were news. Several local volunteers that we as a community are lucky to have helped out and the potential for something extremely unfortunate existed there. Someone could have been hurt – fortunately no one was.

 

And talk about quick…the response time to the river was astonishing Joe Castle from the PD was there in a flash and so was Granville teacher Chris Cook. Cook’s rescue rope was used to bring the kids to safety. That piece of equipment is one I as a kayaker have long neglected, it lies in the bottom of my boat most of the time, but it is a crucial piece of river rescue equipment. Good for her on having it and having used it before.

It’s a good thing Granville has so many people who can drop what they’re doing and rush to the aid of others. Russ Bronson and many others were on the scene in various roles. I hate to leave anyone out because everyone who was there did such a good job.

 

In other thoughts…

 

I don’t even want to think about the back-to-school sales I’m seeing all over the place. As much fun as covering the school is I don’t want the summer to be over either.
