To The Editor:
A few weeks ago our family got to realize just how much the Emergency Response Team in Whitley County would mean to us.
Our dog was trapped for 2 days in the storm drain in our front yard that goes under the street and into our neighbor’s yard. She was stuck 30ft. inside, directly under the center of the road. After much discussion of what to do, and knowing she would die if we didn’t get her out, they would have to dig up the road and that’s exactly what they did, and a short time later she was able to crawl out, unharmed. Truly, our prayers had been answered.
We would first and foremost like to thank our neighbor and Whitley County Magistrate Chuck Head, who called our Judge-Executive Pat White, who said he would be right there and would get the road department.
We would also like to thank the Oak Grove Fire Department, Animal Control Officer Wayne Perkins, staff of Pat White’s office, Whitley County EMS, Delta Gas, Cumberland Valley Electric, Corbin City Utilities, and especially the Whitley County Road Department. And a big thank you to our neighbors Doug and Angie Harms, for allowing them to dig up their yard and driveway.
We all should be thankful and lucky that we have such an excellent Response Team in Whitley County, so remember to be supportive of all of them.
Thank you so very much!
Chuck and Becky Brewer and Family
