The News-Leader in Springfield, Missouri publishes a column of letters entitled Roses & Thorns. I would assume the thorns are complaints because the roses are compliments. There were only roses on February 14, 2011. The following was one of them:
A ROSE: To three young men. We live next door to the LDS (Mormon) church. We have a long drive. Today, there were three young men with snow shovels cleaning our drive. These young men are from that church, seeing a need and filling it. We deeply appreciate this help.
- Harry Hankins, SpringfieldService is always a dish best served -- anonymously and voluntarily. Kudos to the young men and everyone, everywhere, who see a need . . . and fill it.
