A nice guy
I was so pleased to read Rick Carroll’s Aug. 26 article, “Exile on Main Street,” regarding Ryan Olsen. For many weeks I have seen Mr. Olsen around town and have wondered what his story is. The other day he was at Conoco while I was getting gas. I walked past him and smiled, and he thanked me.
Then he approached me as I was filling up my tank and asked me if I was planning on getting a new tire soon, as it looked a little worn down. He seemed genuinely concerned for my safety. He was so nice and spoke so clearly. I’ve heard and seen people in town taunting him, and I truly hope this article makes them think twice before they bother him again.
It’s almost time to ring in the new year and if your holiday schedule is shaping up to be as packed as mine, I wish you a well-deserved rest in 2024. In the meantime, it’s our chance to party, and party we shall.
