Business steps up after reading News

Local company vows it will fix ASAR vandalism damage

It may be a cliche, but the power of the press is real — particularly if it’s supplemented by community-minded individuals.

That was certainly the case when Arrowsmith Search and Rescue recently complained about their parking area being vandalized by unknown culprits doing donuts in the newly-laid gravel.

Interviewed Thursday, Arrowsmith Search and Rescue spokesperson Joe Kinch said a reader saw the story in The News and decided to take action.

“Kivela Contracting said they will fix it for free,” Kinch said. “They are very involved in the community and they do a lot of stuff like this. They read the article and got hold of us.”
