I agree, it's about time to read something about the victim of this tragic explosion.

Mr. Kleinghagen is suffering greatly, including his family. On another post regarding this accident, quite a few said how could a man do such a thing to precious dogs, and "he's no hero." Some very narrow-minded people.

The Kleinghagen's too have a long recovering time. I wish the best for the family.

“If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.”
~St. Francis of Assisi

You're a good man, Mr. Kleinhagen. May God bless you and your family.

Best, deepest wishes to this man and his family for a speedy, healthy recovery. They sound like a "real" family that did not deserve any of this.

I can also agree that it's about time to read more about the victim. I had assumed that since there was nothing more, he had been healing well and was home again. How wrong I was!

And yet, we get to read nine articles on deep-fried pizza... Great newspaper!

So very true, and St.Francis is one of my favorite Saints. It is a good feeling when we get our priorities in order. A daddy needs to get better and when he is back home playing with his son and dogs, I will feel even better. Prayers also for his wife, son and their families.

Uh, Larry, people are animals. Just because we are (supposedly) the most intelligent of all creatures doesn't exclude that fact.

A heros is someone that does something extraordinary. The search and resue dogs that were at the twin towers on 9/11 are just as much heros as any of the firefighters, emts, volunteers, or any law enforcement that was on the ground that day.
hero oh yes

A hero ( from any dictionary) is a person of great strength and ability.
someone admired for his achievements and qualities. Heroes walk around in many forms. Sorry you can't see this.
I am sure if some person was in the kennel/near the kennel/by the kennel Tim would have saved THEM as well as a terrior/chow.
And just be glad that today you are not in the hospital suffering.
huh

First off, god bless him for even thinking of saveing any of the animals. He went beyond the call of duty and was most likely bitten by those chow dogs in the process.
Another thing, WHY WAS the KENNEL made out of a house trailer? Those things go up like tissue paper. Why wasn't it build with cement block walls? Hmmm. Ms tracy may have some explaining to do here.
Anyway, PLEASE STOP talking about MArtha Stewart, isint she still in jail? Geez.
Our donations were sent to this poor guy.

I guess Martha Stewert will contribute towards his bills only when her feet are put to the fire. Her dog was an investement for a cold bit** bottom line. Prison didnt change her one bit. Anyone who watches her show should be asshamed at contributing to her undeserving wealth. She should be a battered housewife...oops sorry

Now that that's out of the way, let's look at this part of the article: "Kleinhagen was new to the tanker job, having started three months before the explosion." That says it all, doesn't it? It should be clear now--without a single doubt--that Mr. Kleinhagen was solely responsible for this explosion and the resulting fire and death of those helpless dogs. If he followed every safety rule, took every single precaution, this would have never happened.
Worse yet, looking at the lovely photos of him and his family, it's apparent that he actually enjoyed--not avoided--being around fire. Need proof? Just take a look at this pic:

Every year, across the country, millions of fuel deliveries occur, without any issues. Accidents don't "just happen". They happen for a reason. That reason is ignoring safety rules.

Godspeed, Tim! We are praying for you!
Very interesting and amusing comment you made!

In the beginning, you show sympathy for him, but then you attack his knowledge and credibility as a delivery person. How do you know that he ignored safety regulations or rules? Were you there with him when it happened?

If you want to attack a person's character, don't start off by being soft-hearted. You are merely trying to cover your resentment and anger against him and people WILL see through that.

Hypocrisy at its finest!

The person who wrote this is truly an idiot. In this economy, what kind of a person is going to knock someone else for fining a job an working hard to support his family? This guy didn't 'learn a lesson,' he was the victim of an unfortunate accident.
Why do some people feel the need to make ignorant posts in this forum? Does it make them feel better about themselves? Is their quality of life so poor, so void of attention, that they have to come on this board and make a selfish, thoughtless comment just to get a little satisfaction?
May God bless Mr. Kleinhagen, as well as all the people affected by this tragedy. May God also bless the person who made that comment above and give him/her the basic compassion they he/she would want other people to show their own family in the event something similiar should happen to them.
You made a very good point, and I think you covered all the reasons. Are ppl really this miserable?

hopefully mr kleinhagen will be given the chance to fill up any propane tank at YOUR home; god bless.

i'm sure you would feel the same way if your kid was accidently burnt; accidents happen, including if your kid was burnt from an accident; god bless.

and, i hope you're no phoney who is all talk and no action; good intentions on a comment board don't count; be sure to send the victim some $.
