LETTER: Crestview is a great place to live

Published: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at 10:45 AM.

Dear editor,

When you're retired, you have time to reflect on unexpected events. 

We decided to take a trip to Lowe's — and got as far from home as the intersection to Highway 90. As we turned into the intersection, we heard an awful, loud noise, so we pulled into the Tom Thumb parking area next to Whitehurst-Powell Funeral Home.

Checking for a flat tire, we didn't see anything.

We checked for a broken belt; nothing wrong there. 

Then, my husband heard the hissing. 

The strange things a tire can find on the roadway! Lodged in the portion of the tire resting against the concrete, almost hidden from our view, was a 6-inch heavy metal hook. We have no idea of its intended use.
