To the editor:

Thanks to Joel Jones at Hy-Vee Gas, who seems to make everyone feel a little better. Sometimes — especially when it’s really hot — Joel is singing Christmas carols, and other times, he’s telling one of his “glorified” stories.

It doesn’t matter what kind of problems life is throwing my way, when I leave Hy-Vee Gas and Joel is working — and on a roll — I’m smiling again. Thanks Joel!
