---- — Thoughtful nursebrings blanket

Robert Knapp, Logansport, extends this Rose to Logansport Memorial Hospital:

“Thank you to all the staff at Logansport Memorial Hospital Emergency Room. On Nov. 28, I received good care from all the professional staff. A special thank you and Rose goes to the nurse that observed me and brought me a warm blanket and pillows to halp make me comfortable. Your caring gesture was very much appreciated.”

Secret Santapays dinner check

Judy and Carole Gilsinger, Susan Barefoat and Doc Gordan, all of Logansport, extend this Rose to a stranger who became their secret Santa:

“My sisters, I and our neighbor went to Bob Evans for supper to relax and enjoy ourselves. Being senior citizens, we don’t get to do that much. When we went to pay our bill the cashier told us it had already been paid. What a wonderful surprise! We just want you to know you made a hum down day into something special. Merry Christmas! God will bless you for your kindness.”

Spreading cheerwith bell’s sound

Kenny Hurlburt Jr., Star City, extends this Rose to an unknown Salvation Army volunteer:

“To the young man who was a bell ringer at the north entrance of Walmart late afternoon Friday, Dec. 6 — you said Merry Christmas to everyone that walked by, even if they did not donate. You have the spirit of giving your time to a great cause, and you were not afraid to do it. Merry Christmas, young man, and to all the young people who donate their time this holiday season. As the church sign said, ‘The most important part of Christmas ... the first six letters.’ God bless.”

All lit up

Jack Fultz, Logansport, extends this Rose to the City of Logansport:

“Roses to the city of Logansport and LMU for how the downtown looks at night with the Christmas decorations all lit up.”

Could have, should have

Jack Fultz, Logansport, extends this Thorn to President Barack Obama:

“A boxer full of thorns to Mr. Obama and his wife for finding the time to attend Mr. Mandela’s funeral, but not having the time, money, or interest to arrest the murderers of four Americans, including Ambassador Stevens, when most of the Middle East can identify those murderers and know where they are at any given time. But according to our former Secretary of State, who could be our next president, ‘What difference does it make?’ Maybe she could fill in for Ambassador Stevens until a replacement can be appointed.”
