Sid Rood, a driver with Peterson Bus Service, helps Scott Edman off the bus Tuesday to go grocery shopping at Jahnke Foods in Spicer.

A helping hand


Scott Edman has a big sweet tooth that needs satisfying and a bird feeder that needs frequent filling. Both tasks require a trip to the grocery store at least one a week.

Because physical injuries prevent him from driving, getting to a store is difficult.

In the past he could call in an order to New London's grocery store,

The Big Store, and employees would deliver groceries to him.
