As we all know, teenagers are notorious for driving distracted, particularly when they travel in large groups. Justin Case shares this account: â€śWe were coming home from the local basketball game, and were very excited because weâ€™d just beaten our biggest rivals. The Point brothers were hamming it up, and we were talking and laughing and not paying much attention to the road. As we approached the crossing, my brother, N. E. (short for Norton Elwell) Case, noticed the crossing lights and slammed the brakes on just in time to avoid hitting the crossing arms. That crossing isnâ€™t very well lit, and we would have been crushed like a pop can if those lights hadnâ€™t been working. We owe Mr. Thyme big for making sure those lights got fixed. Heâ€™s our hero!â€ť
The Case and Point families presented Mr. Thyme with a $500 check in appreciation of his service.
