To the Editor:
This letter is addressed to the person who hit my car in the Plainfield Walmart parking lot on Sunday, March 10.
I didn't find out that my car had been hit until this morning when I got into it to go to work. Most of us go into the store, do our shopping, and return to our cars and usually there is nothing wrong. Lots of times, or honestly, all the time, do a lot of us take the time to really look?
I drive a blue 2010 Ford Fusion. I would like to tell you that just a couple of weeks ago, I got my car out of the shop because it had been hit again in the parking garage at work. I was in my car that time. The young lady backed into me at the card swipe; she was backing out due to a defective card reader and didn't look. But she didn't leave either. She got out of her car, apologized, we exchanged information and the matter was resolved. My car went into the shop, was fixed and her insurance paid for it.
But you ... are another story. Whereas the young lady who hit me prior was very upset and obviously cared about what she had done, you seem to lack that trait. You hit my car on the front passenger side, breaking my mirror and literally pulling the whole network including the black panel, loose from my car.
You had to be in a BIG hurry to get into Walmart, didn't you?
The last time I wrote an e-mail to the Hendricks County Flyer, a driver had nearly broadsided my car at the intersection of Brookside and Stafford Roads. I had my mother with me who is 76 years old and suffers from Alzheimer's and leukemia. I want her to stay with me for some time yet. However, that "accident" could have killed both of us. That person failed to stop at the four-way stop.
Once again, I ask all of you to please be respectful on the streets, avenues, lanes, and roads of our town. Stop ... look ... listen. Put your phone down. Make that call later so you can pay attention now. Own up to your wrongs. Pay it forward. Be the kind of person that makes Plainfield a great place to live.

There have been a lot of big games played in Indianapolis, none bigger than the Colts' unforgettable win over New England in the AFC championship seven years ago.
While next Monday's visit from Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos won't eclipse that monumental event, there is no doubt that the city has never and will never experience another night like No. 18's return.

There is no denying that Twitter has provided a once-impossible glimpse into the minds of sports figures. It has also infinitely increased the ability of those figures to make absolute fools of themselves.
