Jim Kopp

On February 5th, with the first of 50+ inches of snow, Sue Weniger was out snow blowing because her husband was going in for knee replacement the next morning! Unfortunately, she slipped on the ice hidden by the snow and broke her right arm. Now Sue and Tom are both out of commission for the snowiest February on record! Along comes their wonderful neighbor, Jim Kopp, and not only does he manage his own snow banks but he handles theirs as well! If that isn't a good neighbor and deserving of the Sunshine Award I don't know what is! We can all use an extra dose of neighborliness these days and this is a refreshing story!
