On New Year's Day, I stopped at Hy-Vee Drug Town to buy a few groceries. At the checkout counter ahead of me was a very courteous young gentleman. After a while he handed me the cash register receipt. He had paid for my groceries.

I was so surprised and I thanked him. He disappeared quickly. I must say that I am proud to livein Ottumwa, where we have such kind and generous people. Again, I thank you very much, sir.
