Help came fast

To the Journal editor:

I would like to express my thanks for the way we were treated on a trip through your area recently.

Our car broke down in the middle of nowhere with no cell service within five minutes a state trooper stopped and was able to call a tow truck for us and about 15 minutes later, we were on our way to Shingleton with a very helpful tow truck driver.

Within 15 minutes of getting there they had our car in the service garage and were able to get the parts and fixed it within an hour and we were on our way again. A wheel bearing had gone.

The repairs were extremely reasonable and to get us going faster the manager at the shop said she would call us later with the amount of the charges and I could give her a credit card to pay. Not many places operate with that kind of trust any more.

Thank you to Terry and his employees and the state trooper for a job well done.
