Letter to Editor: Funk family indebted to emergency service providers
On Dec. 10, Holly and I fell through the ice on Little Sand Lake around 3:45 p.m. on our way to our favorite fishing spot. It was a very dangerous situation, as you can imagine, and we were not able to pull ourselves back onto the ice pack. We clung to the ice pack. Were it not for...
