I was running errands on my half-hour lunch.

After my errands at Lowe's and picking up my sandwich, I realized my cell phone had not made a noise for several minutes which is unusual. It is my brand new Galaxy business phone and has over 1,000 numbers in it.

In a panic, I went back to Lowe's. I was told no one found a phone. I went to Panera's. No luck. Went back to my office and realized I could not even call anyone for help as all their numbers are in my phone! I could not even call a friend!

Then an angel friend, Rochel Rittgers showed up at the office. We called my phone and it was not in my car. She volunteered to stay at the office and take care of any clients who came in so I could drive back to Lowe's all the while, calming myself saying the universe would take care of me.

I walked into Lowe's and sure enough some kind and loving person found it in the parking lot and turned it in. Lowe's was keeping it safely in a drawer.
There are angels and wonderful people everywhere. The person could have kept the phone and Lowe's could have too. But everyone today was honest and kind.

I may never know who you were but want to express my deep gratitude for your kindness and consideration to the person who found it and turned it in and to Lowe's for keeping it safe for me. I am forever grateful and many of my clients will be also.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.

1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
