Cupid caught in the act

A man who would only identify himself as "Cupid," was caught spreading cheer Wednesday, just before the clock struck midnight heralding Valentine's Day.

The mysterious man, dressed like an angel, had just completed painting a heart in the snow at the Harvest Bible Church, located at the corner of Savidge and Church streets. He said he had also painted hearts in the yards of some of the homes in the area.

"People always wonder where the hearts come from - you caught me red-handed," he said.

The man, who said "I'm older than you think I am," claimed that he has been spreading spirit for 40 years.

Only identifying himself as "from Michigan," he noted he had been in 42 states in the last month "doing stuff like this." He said he was not from the Tri-Cities area.

"Cupid" said this is what he does every day of the year.

When asked how he survives, he just shrugged his shoulders and smiled.

When asked why he does it, he said "just because."

Then he turned and floated off into the night.

That is Johnny Spirit from MSU (John Sheldon)

We all knew him in High School (SL) as John Sheldon, Then he went to MSU and became Johnny Spirit. If your at the Coast Guard Parade, he goes by "tootie" the clown (which maybe an understatement. How does he do it? By selling elephant ears for a living of course...

Is this the same guy who went scuba diving off the end of the GH pier about 10 years ago, clearing out the junk on the bottom and retrieving lost items for boaters? This was in the spring or fall when no sane person would go in the water because it was below 60 degrees. I talked to him once, a great guy, doing good deeds where he saw the need.
