Good deed...

I recently lost my mountain bike from my vehicle while returning to Colorado during very high winds. My bicycle was found near the Cisco exit by Danny Striblen, who is from Moab, and he contacted me to return it. 

When my friend picked up the bike, this man who found it refused to accept the $100 I wanted to give him. I am thankful for this good Samaritan and wanted to say thanks and acknowledge this kind deed in your newspaper if possible. 

I’m sure this is just the kind of ordinary courtesy that good people show others but I thought I would try to acknowledge it anyway.

Thanks.
