Trash collector goes beyond call of duty

To the editor:

Tuesday the wind was howling, the temperature not yet out of the low teens. I had already chased my recycle bin, which was sliding along in the middle of Jason Street when I looked out to see my trash collector, now on the opposite side of the street, come to my rescue. He retrieved my trash can, now poised to take off down Jason, and lodged it under a bush halfway down my driveway.

My thanks to you for the fine job you do weekly, but also for this kind gesture, above and beyond the call of duty.
