Letter to the Editor

Ameren crew should be applauded

Thursday, February 28, 2008

To the editor:I live four or five miles north of Cape Girardeau just past Teen Challenge. I would like you to know that during the bad part of the storm, utility men came by here to check on me and see if I had power and so forth. I did not. About an hour later there was a knock at the door. One of the men handed me a Coke carton. He said, "Here's stuff we had in the truck we thought you might be able to use." There were a half-dozen bottles of water, two or three bottles of lemonade, some peanut butter crackers, cheese crackers and snacks like that. I was grateful. I think they should be applauded. Our AmerenUE men do a great job.
