Letter: Couple gives praise to Stow Police and city workers

Published: July 31, 2016 12:00 AM

In a time when

police officers across the nation are being attacked (physically and verbally), we want to extend our sincere thanks and give praise to the Stow Police Officers Jason, Mike and others as well as several city workers that came to our aid twice over the last week.

On July 13, a storm knocked down a large section of the maple tree in our front yard. It partially blocked half of Cherryhurst Drive. We notified Stow police of the situation and officers responded immediately. They came and checked up on us, put cones down for cars to go around and made sure that we were OK.

At 7 the next morning, city workers arrived and proceeded to clean up the fallen tree. We assumed the section of the fallen tree in our yard would be our responsibility. The men not only cleaned up the tree from our street but also cleaned up our yard, and cut the trunk into pieces, which we could use as firewood.

Six days later, an out-of-control car slammed into our 30-foot blue spruce tree. Several Stow police officers including Jason and Mike came to the scene. The injured driver was taken to a hospital by EMS. The police officers on the scene were very polite, making sure we were all OK. We were cleaning up the small pieces in the yard the next day that were left from the accident. Officer Jason happened to be going by and stopped. He asked how we were doing and explained he was one of the officers that came to the accident the evening before. He expressed his thankfulness that none of our family was injured.
