Item: Good Samaritans tough to find: Volunteers to shovel roofs, sidewalks in short supply/Tom Hasslinger, CDA Press
More Info: They don't make them like they used to. Kind-hearted Samaritans who used to volunteer their time shoveling out disabled and elderly people during Coeur d'Alene winters have disappeared under this year's record snowfall. And the 100-plus inches of snow, sleet and ice has left entrepreneurs in their place. "Seems like everybody's out to make a buck," said Vickie Harrison, manager of Lake City Senior Center. "Not that you can blame them."
Question: Have you been helped unexpectedly by a Good Samaritan this winter?
