You see, coming to the aid of a motorist in trouble is not new to Mike. He has been there, done that - a number of times. Though his family sees him as nothing short of a hero, Mike says he has “not done anything that anybody else wouldn’t do.”

October 13, 2010

MASON CITY - - Tame or wild, it doesn’t matter to Loretta Lovitt! Every fall she cans a turkey; whether it’s been purchased or shot depends on the outcome of turkey season.
During turkey season, it’s not unusual for hunters to ask permission to use her land, as she lives in the country outside of Mason City. After a successful hunt, it’s customary for her to receive thanks by being given one of the birds that was bagged. On occasions such as these, Loretta tells the men just to skin the bird and she’ll do the rest.
