ROSE NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

As Gail Saivar checked out at Trader Joe’s on Tuesday, the cashier asked how the day was going. “Great,” she shot back, “if you don’t count the guy who took a right turn from the left lane into my car when I was driving home — from my radiation treatment.” Saivar collected her groceries, walked to the parking lot and was backing out in her crippled car when there was a knock on the passenger window. It was cashier Paul Gobel, proffering a bouquet of roses. “We’ve all had days like that,” he said. “He turned mine around,” says Saivar.
