Writer Says Charity Begins In Columbia, Kentucky
This article first appeared in issue 16, and was written by A.G. Maupin.
C.J. Holt, owner of Parkway Chevron at the intersection of Jamestown, Tutt, and Bomar Heights, received the following letter, dated July 2:
I'm the guy that lacked $5.00 to pay my repair bill in full. Then, you gave me $5.00 so that I could get breakfast. Well, now the rest of the story:
I left you and drove directly to the restaurant on Hwy #55 and proceeded to humorously tell the waitress my story and at the same time ordered bacon and eggs.
Before I had finished eating, she came over to my table and told me that she wasn't about to take my last $5.00 and that breakfast was on the house.
Then, to carry the pathetic humor further, I asked her if she just possibly had a toothbrush that I could borrow one? Can you believe that this gal went behind the counter and got me one?
In conclusion, I'm forced to say that charity doesn't always take place in the home; for me, it was Columbia, KY.
Thanks again, Mr. Holt.
By the way . . . I didn't take the toothbrush, and left her a $2.00 tip.
