Good Samaritan

There are many people that are Good Samaritans ’round Palomar.  This feel-good story just came from a neighbor.  I think many of you might know JP.

Many thanks to all the JP’s of Palomar.

From:  Fred Brown

“…Unfortunately I slipped on the ice and now I am incapacitated with a sore back.

Yesterday I decided to drive back up to get my mail and some other things.  Rain was so intense it was like driving under water!    On the way down south grade I hit a rock which blew my front tire. Tried to change it by the side of the road but was hopeless because of sore back and old age.
Second vehicle I tried to flag down stopped.  Driver not only changed the wheel, but he followed me down all the way to the Stage Stop at 20 MPH because spare tire was under-inflated and wanted to make sure I would make it.  Refused to be paid.  People like that are worth a million!  God bless him!

Said his name was JP, maybe you know him?

  2. That would be J. P. Barkowski. JP used to live down the East Grade when I lived on Palomar.

    • You are so right Jim! JP lives in Pauma now but works on the mountain. 🙂

  3. There are wonderful people in the world like JP. Thanks for the reminder. ❤️
