To the Editor:
I am writing this letter to thank and to acknowledge the great and swift job that the Wayne Township Fire Department did, as well as the ambulance, in responding to a medical emergency in our household on May 15.
There was a political refugee who was staying at our house for a couple of days when her condition had suddenly deteriorated and went downhill and the EMS people had to be called in quickly.
Not once, but also a second time that day, due to an elderly person staying at our house.
And since the refugee who was in need of medical attention was from China and had spent the last six years in Thailand before coming here, communication proved to also be a bit of a challenge.
Thankfully, the medical professionals who had responded to the situation in our house also had a computerized translator with their equipment, which was also a great aid in diagnosing the problem to be dealt with.
All four of the staff were most attentive to all of the little details and handled the situation very calmly and professionally.
Thanks to one and all for your kind help and caring.
Mark Hummer and family

There was a wide array of reactions to Seattle DB Richard Sherman’s post-game “interview” with Erin Andrews following the Seahawks’ NFC title win over San Francisco.
Mine? Laughter, as the shout-down was the most entertaining thing I saw all day.

A fine season for the Indianapolis Colts ended with a whimper Saturday at New England, but in recent team history, it was far from the most disappointing postseason defeat.

The Indianapolis Colts’ miraculous 45-44 wild card victory over Kansas City on Saturday ended just after 8 p.m. After leaving Lucas Oil Stadium, it took until around midnight for the pounding in my head to subside.

Smartphones need kill switches. It's a relatively easy solution to the pricey (and irritating) problem of smartphone theft. But who would have thought that the big carriers would team up with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung and lots of other manufacturers to voluntarily begin adding the technology by July 2015? The cooperative spirit! It makes so much sense!
