R Eleveld - I too was going to note that his haircuts are not free. Based on his blood drive work IRead More like to call him Joe the Vampire. I have nominated him as a CNN hero, but no selection there yet. One of my favorite Joe the Barber stories, as only he can tell them, is he was walking through Bushnell Park at night once and some guys were starting to hassle him.. Quickly some of his clients told them to STOP hassling HIM. Someone, several people, were watching out for him that night.

Just watched the story on CBS evening news, quite a guy. Is there any way to donate some supplies toRead More Joe?

I am not sure when the latest audit was performed for the charities that started, collected moneyRead More all in the name of helping the devastated families. By my calculations the total that was reported collected was $5,777,335 compared to what was spent out $1,648,063. Making a difference of $4,129,292. It seems if you want not only your rights taken away but your money too wait for a tragedy and then act like saviors and steal everything all in the name of keeping society safe. I do applaud the ones that have donated all of the collections to what it was intended for but the rest should go to the capital because you would fit right in. Heartless evil people who are no better than the one who pulled the trigger.

Allyson - truly an inspiration! My wife works at Gray at HH and is volunteering that day. MyRead More 14-year-old and I will be riding the 50 in honor of my son-in-law who is fighting the beast right now. I've had radiation treatments at the Avon facility and love the staff! Thanks for sharing your story.

As a resident, small business owner and bank customer I am sad to see Mark retire. The impact he hasRead More had on this town is outstanding. He will be missed and remembered. I hope the incoming people have the same insight, understanding of Windsor and continue to keep Windsor Federal a base anchor in Windsor.

Congratulations Mark. Local businesses giving back is what weaves additional strength into theRead More fabric of our community

What a wonderful article Julian, and yes, you are right, you will be hard pressed to find a JayceeRead More who would not experience that overwhemling discomfort speaking about what it is that we do for our community. We are a very lucky organization to have such wonderful members who not only work tirelessly for our community, but enjoy what it is that we do. It truly is an inspiring group of indivduals! We are proud of what we are able to accomplish together, the friendships we have with one another and more importantly the difference that we make within the community in which we live, and where we choose to raise our families. So here's to The Windsor Jaycees and the 40th year Shad Derby!
