Postal Worker Cited For Helping Fallen Sulphur Resident

Sulphur postal carrier Stan Gilbert was presented a Certificate of Appreciation for going above and beyond his duties on November 15, 2016, according to postmaster Brent Gee.
According to Gee, Sulphur resident Phil Thomison was working around his house on Lakeview Drive when he went to the back yard near the alley. There, he stumbled and fell and was struggling to get up. After a long period of time, Mr. Thomison was still unable to get up and was not sure how long he would be there with no way of calling for help. “It was then he heard the familiar sound of his mail man coming down the street performing his daily duties,” said Gee. “Mr. Thomison struggled to his knees and began to wave for the mail man to help. Stan noticed that Mr. Thomison was in trouble and stopped to help. He was able to help Mr. Thomison to his feet and back to the house.”
