    Great story. See, the world really isn't completely ****ed up.

    Same thing happened with a Dubuque family recently. There are opportunities every day to change somebody's life for the better...

    Here's a link to to the newspaper story awhile back:

    Should probably be noted for people who haven't red it, that the family in the article is the Rohach family...as in Grant Rohach, currently committed to play QB for ISU.

    I picked that up right away. Great to see them giving back. Hope this good karma stays with Grant during his time at ISU.
