Munson Twp.’s Happy Jogger

In last week’s publication of the Geauga County Maple Leaf, the Sheriff’s Report listed “an older gentleman running up and down the road (Sherman) in short shorts” and refusing a ride from the person who reported him to the sheriff as “disoriented.” This happy jogger is out and jogging (sometimes including a few dance steps) rain, shine or snow, and yes, wearing shorts. He waves to drivers and always wears a smile. If you see him, slow down and wave to him; he is healthy, not disoriented.
