John flies to the res­cue of street

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS - Ja­cob Wilson

FOR John Kasper, the best part about be­ing a su­per­hero is that he now has an ex­cuse to wear his un­der­pants on the out­side.

John was nom­i­nated as one of ‘Deb­bies he­roes’ by his neigh­bour on Ju­bilee Pocket’s Moon­light Drive for not only tak­ing the time to check on ev­ery in­di­vid­ual per­son re­sid­ing at the cul de sac, but for also help­ing res­i­dents re­cover in the im­me­di­ate af­ter­math.

Along­side many oth­ers, John worked for three and-a-half days to en­sure ev­ery drive­way was cleared.

When pressed on his new found hero sta­tus, his quirky side quickly came out, re­veal­ing he was par­tial to the at­tire of su­per­heroes.

“I do con­sider my­self kind of a su­per­hero be­cause I wear my un­der­pants on the out­side,” he joked.

Neigh­bour Judi Dunn nom­i­nated John as a hero be­cause his gen­uine car­ing na­ture shone through.

“We said we all owe John a beer but I per­son­ally think we owe him a car­ton.”

Cy­clone Deb­bie caused roof dam­age to Judi’s place which John, as a builder by trade was able to wa­ter-proof with ease.

How­ever John said he wasn’t the only hero on the street adding the cy­clone brought the whole com­mu­nity to­gether.

“Brett and Tanya from next door and Pete and Tracey helped my­self and my wife ev­ery day,” he said.

“Ev­ery­one in our cul de sac came to­gether and helped.”
