CHEERS to Craig Fischer and all of the dedicated volunteers of the Fort Wayne Curling Club for their hard work in bringing a dedicated curling facility to Fort Wayne. A great asset to the community is ready for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games.


CHEERS to all neighbors who help neighbors. The Tracey family, one we’ve known a long time, is truly a blessing to us in all that they do for us – from shoveling to friendliness and just plain caring about us in many ways. They have cared since they moved in, and money has never been an issue.

Neighbors like them are a true blessing from God. Their parents, church and Christian school can be very proud of Kim, Teresa, Jacki, Alli and Chad.


CHEERS to Envision Church on Project Drive. My wife and I were completely surprised Jan. 19 in our house in Northcrest addition. The sound of several car doors opening and closing and snow shovels clanging on our sidewalks and driveway was a pleasant jolt. At least 15 teenagers cleared our driveway and walks. A young lady came to our door and prayed for our needs.

WAYNE and SUE PUTT Fort Wayne

CHEERS to Jefferson Middle School Choir and their director for the national anthem at the Komets game Jan. 17 at Memorial Coliseum. They put their heart and soul into it, and it was one of the very best I have ever heard done. They made this veteran proud to stand there and listen to them. I hope they make a return visit.


CHEERS to the Fort Wayne Police Department for working with the Parma, Ohio Police Department in helping locate my daughter, who went missing on Jan. 10. Thank you for your dedicated service, professionalism, and verifying who she was and that she was safe. You helped put my mind at ease and now I can sleep.


CHEERS to Mike Catalogna, owner of Catablu Grille on West Jefferson Boulevard, who came to my rescue and performed the Heimlich maneuver on me on the evening of Jan. 16 when I was choking on piece of meat. Without his quick action, I’m not sure I would be here today. I am so thankful he was there that night and that he immediately knew what to do. It’s wonderful to know that restaurant personnel are trained to help in emergencies.

JULIE P. BOYD Fort Wayne

CHEERS to the man in the Auburn Heating & Air Conditioning truck who, out of the goodness of his heart, decided to plow the drifts in my driveway. He came out of nowhere, plowed a really good path and then was gone as quickly as he came. I would never have been able to get out of my driveway, nor would anyone have been able to get in with those big drifts.


CHEERS to the man who found all my plastic cards and money tied up in a rubber band in the parking lot at Logan’s and turned it in. This will be passed forward.
