Nice kid. We usually read or hear of teenagers in trouble, causing havoc and generally misbehaving. But an exception occurred in a Dairy Queen in Hopkins, Minn. when 19-year-old Joey Prusak, an employee since he was 14, saw a blind customer drop a $20 bill. A woman behind him picked it up and put it in her purse. “I was shocked,” said Prusak. He confronted the woman who denied she “stole” it from the blind man and walked out. Without mentioning the vulture-like female Prusak gave the man a $20 bill from his own pocket explaining to the customer that he had dropped it. Prusak then simply went back to work.

Several days later the young man’s boss received an email from a customer who had witnessed the entire incident. “Why didn’t you tell me,” he asked Prusak. Prusak said it never crossed his mind and “it just felt like it was the right thing to do.” Yep, there’s a glimmer of hope for the next generation.

Harvest bonus. It is Harvest Festival time at St. Joachim. This weekend on the school grounds there will be fun, food and more. But the real adventure may be in finding a parking spot with 4th Street and Sunset seemingly under construction forever. John Bryan, dentist and desert rat, and his YMI bunch will be cooking up some good vittles during the event so be sure to stop by and contribute to their worthy causes and fill your tummy too.

Also, congrats to Doc Bryan…he recently became a first-time grandfather. Don’t believe the kid was named after the 49er quarterback of the 1970s, John Brodie, but his new grandson named Brodie will sooner or later be testing out his throwing arm with baby food, toys and such...
