Doing a good deed

Friday, January 30, 2009

Fourteen-year-old Owen Geswein -- who lives near Carbon -- used his grandfather's four-wheeler with a blade to plow several sidewalk and yard areas for Clay County residents during the last few days. Geswein started plowing residents' areas Wednesday and through Friday, he said he had plowed 35 residential homes. "I like messing around with machines," Geswein said, "and it's to help the community." Jason Moon Photo.

With all the negative posts (I myself am guilty of sometimes) that get put on here, I would like to make a postive comment here. I do not know this young man and do not live in or around Carbon, but I think the people of Carbon have a young man in their area to be very proud of. It is not every day we hear about the good deeds that todays youth do. It is very refreshing. So to Owen and his family I say, "thank you"! You are a good influence and an inspiration to others in our County.

Knowing Owen since his birth, I can tell all that this is not his first good deed. Owen is a wonderful young man that is always lending a helping hand to those in his community ~

As always I am still very proud of Owen ~

What a great thing for this young man to be doing. I hope that folks were kind of enough to tell you "Thank you" I know that my son will hold a door open for people and sometimes still be holding it many groups of crowds later, and not 1 person say thank you. It is hard for kids who are trying to be model citizens and what do they get for their effort. Nothing...but I sure would say "Thank you and how about something Hot to drink!" Have a great day!
