It's always amazing and gratifying how a community will rally around someone needing help.

A burger fry and silent auction was recently held at our local VFW to help defray medical bills for a local lady who has been battling cancer. The event raised $29,000, more than double what anyone had even dreamed of.

I've never forgotten a story the late Paul Harvey told about a teenaged girl in Texas. As a 4H member, she raised a hog to show at the local county fair. A few weeks before the fair, she was in a car accident and although she eventually recovered fully, at the time of the fair she was confined to a wheelchair with the family facing horrendous medical bills.

Another family member showed her hog at the fair, and the hog won the grand prize. As is customary, after the fair the animals were auctioned, the buyers normally being restaurants and steak houses who purchase them for the meat.

When the young lady's hog came up for auction, a local car dealer was the high bidder. He immediately rushed to the auctioneer and told the auctioneer that he would pay what he had bid, but since he had no use for the hog to auction it again.

The crowd caught on to what was happening, and before it was over the auctioneer had sold the same hog 34 times, while the gal sat in her wheel chair with tears streaming down her face.

Not too many things will bring tears to this old cynic's eyes, but that story did.
