“Spies in Disguise” was really funny because it was about a guy who turns into a pigeon. There was another guy who was in the movie who was really funny and really cool because he thought of really funny things for the spy to use while he was still a person. He made all sorts of gadgets and inventions for the spy to use, like a glitter one that turned into a cat, and it was really cute. The movie was really good and had lots of funny parts. I really like that it was about a guy who turned into a pigeon. They did lots of funny things and he even made some friends who were pigeons, too. The pigeons were really funny and helped the spy. Even while he was a pigeon, not a person, he made a really good spy and did cool things. The movie was good for teaching people how to work together and how you should not try to do things by yourself. When the movie started, the spy did not have any friends and he tried to do everything by himself. I thought it was sad he did not have any friends. But when he turned into a pigeon, he needed help and he made friends who helped him. The spy had a really cool car that could even drive itself. One funny part was when the spy turned into a pigeon and tried to drive the car. I thought he would not be able to do it, but the car actually drove itself. I want a car like that. He got even cooler stuff once he decided to make friends, and the scientist made really cool stuff for him to use. The movie was really funny, and it was really good. I hope other people go see it, too, so they can see someone turn into a pigeon and all the funny things that I got to see.
The day before Thanksgiving was a day of cascading good deeds that started with a bagel run, became a lost-andfound, turned into a returned-to-owner, then morphed into a donation for the Salvation Army, and took almost three months to track down all of the details. On November 27, Brian Barberic, who is the office manager at Medina Vein and Vascular, was on a bagel run at Signature Square Plaza on state Route 18, Medina, when he found two envelopes of money in the middle of the parking lot. The bagel run was being sponsored by Barberic’s boss, Dr. Barry J. Zadeh, who regularly treats his staff. Hopeful he might find the owner of the envelopes, Barberic

posted on social media what he had found and stated that if someone recognized the envelopes and could tell him exactly how much was in each envelope, he would give them to that person. As chance would have it, someone did recognize the envelopes, knew whom they belonged to, and posted the information in order to connect the two. Meanwhile, Barberic had been busy going door to door to the businesses in the plaza, leaving his name and number in case the owner showed up looking for the envelopes. It did not take long for Barberic to reunite envelopes, money and owner, who happened to work at Salon Rootz in the plaza. He quickly edited his social media post, letting everyone know the mystery had been solved and celebrating a successful conclusion. The owner of the money was so thrilled to have the envelopes back, that she gave Barberic a big hug and thanked him when he delivered the envelopes to her. She later sent him a text message, once again thanking him and telling him that because of his good deed and honesty, she was going to turn around and donate the money to the Salvation Army, helping many others. It is never too late to reward a good deed, and so for his good deed and hard work attempting to locate the owner of the envelopes, Joy of Medina County Magazine awarded Barberic a gift certificate to a local business. Businesses that donate gift cards or certificates to be used as In Deed rewards will receive notice in the column when their donation is awarded.
