What's better than a free shopping spree at Christmas for a kid? How about getting to ride there in a real fire truck or police car with lights and sirens? Forty-five kids got the chance Dec. 19 in Doniphan during the annual Shop With A Hero. The group met downtown for a VIP journey with the heroes to Jamison's Super Saver in Doniphan. It appeared the heroes had just as great a time as the kids. Agencies participating included the Ripley County Sheriff's Department, Doniphan City Police, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Missouri Dept. of Conservation, the U.S. Forest Service, Doniphan Fire And Rescue, Poynor VFD, Oxly VFD, Purman VFD, Logan Creek VFD, Current River VFD and the Ripley County Ambulance District.
