With the news in this day and age being so negative, I thought you would like a positive bit of news about a young man from your area.

While visiting the Moab area recently, I lost my wallet, which contained cash, credit cards and other personal information. After getting home, I received a phone call from a person by the name of Dustin Grimm from Castle Valley who said that he found my wallet and wanted to return it to me. He was not looking for a reward but just wanted to do a good deed and return the wallet to me.

He sent it back with cash and credit cards all intact. I feel that this act of honestly deserves recognition since so many people today would not have gone out of their way to return the wallet.

Thank you Dustin Grimm for your honesty.
