While on my way from Liberal to Garden City to attend a meeting, I

had a blowout south of Sublette. The first person who stopped to help me

was Sheena Colcher, a hairdresser at Tammy & Co., in Garden City.

While we were attempting to change the tire, two gentlemen, Dwain Murphy

and Jason Mead who work for the Kansas Department of Transportation in

Garden, stopped and changed the tire. I'm so glad I live in southwest

Kansas home of the friendliest people in the world. The Liberal

Chamber gives a "Friendliest Employee of the Month" award to our local

employees who go above and beyond at their jobs and I would say these

three wonderful people qualify. Thank you Sheena, Dwain and Jason --

it's people like you that make Garden City and southwest Kansas a great

place to live.
