Two town residents reported “feel good” acts of kindness to the Ponoka News editorial office over the course of last week, the kind of information everyone likes to hear.

The first report came in a handwritten note from Jaye, who asked her last name not to be used.

She asked anyone and everyone who comes in contact with Phil Lewis to congratulate him, because his quick thinking and swift action saved Jaye’s life.

Jaye was about to choke on a candy while she was driving, so she pulled over. Just as she was about to go unconscious, Phil pulled up, jumped out of his car and administered a Heimlich maneuver on Jaye, as a result of which the candy broke into two and and was ejected.

Jaye calls Phil “a real hero” and thanks him.

The other act of goodwill was reported by Donna Cnossen, who is grateful to the unknown individual who turned her lost car keys to the No Frills.

“It is wonderful that there are still considerate and thoughtful people in this world, especially in our Town of Ponoka,” she said.

She is grateful.
