In the midst of an abundance of bad news, good news stories still bubble to the surface.
We find ourselves posting mostly bad, sad or frustrating news in our Sunday newsletter. We want to make sure you come here and smile too. That’s why we have our “Good News” column.
Giant beach ball rolls into town!
Reader Tim Slack sent us this Good News. Thanks, Tim!
A giant beach ball rolled into Stoughton, Wisconsin, and was promptly adopted by the town. They even named it “Rollie Pollie Ole.” The ball is bounced, rolled and kicked from place to place. It’s frequently autographed and is the star of numerous selfies.
The local fire station has taken Rollie under its wing. They patch, refill and fix it up when needed. Who would think that a giant beach ball could bring a whole town together? What a fun Good News story!
