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

Having gone to a football school in the heart of basketball country, I was never around soccer in my youth, and thus haven’t been a soccer guy in adulthood.

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.

Among the many things Fox News has to answer for is the proof it has provided that news relentlessly slanted to match an agenda works: It can bring audience, financial success and influence, the three things any media owner craves.
