Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

August 3, 2013
The Post-Journal

Thumbs up to being a county that pitches in. We had a public example of that Wednesday when noted sportswriter Peter King's bus became stuck in the field near Russell E. Diethrick Park on Falconer Street. King popped into the city to catch a few innings of the Jammers' game before leaving for Berea, Ohio, chatting with fans and enjoying some minor league baseball. When the time came to leave, however, King needed some help to get his bus unstuck. In the end, several people, including the Jammers' ground crew, led by Josh and Jim Waid, freed the bus and King was on his way to Berea - though King made sure to thank those who helped out. ''Felt part of an Amish barn-raising tonight in Jamestown, NY. Scores of great folks. All they wanted was to help get our RV out of a ditch," King posted on his Twitter page late Wednesday night. We often hear and read about the bad in our community. It's nice to see reminders of the good as well. Another reminder, provided by Susan Rowley of Frewsburg, will appear on Sunday's op-ed page.
