EDITOR'S NOTE: The following letter was written by Rep. Robert Ridgeway to Andy Stout, owner of Shoney's in Manning.
This episode only stresses the importance that all people should be trained in the appropriate measures to take when such an emergency arises. I noticed that no one sitting at the nearby tables even got out of their chairs, and this tells me that they did know not what to do.
I would like to therefore take this opportunity to personally thank Ms. Robinson for first, taking the time to be trained in what to do in an emergency situation. Secondly, I would like to thank her for using the knowledge she gained to help her fellowman, and thirdly, to admire her for keeping her cool. As soon as the incident was over, she returned to work as if nothing had happened.
REP. ROBERT L. RIDGEWAY III
