Hello, My name is Brian and have known Ed Hightower(owner of Bear Mountain Sports) for over 20 yrs. In June, a homeless lady was living out back of the store and started a fire that did major damage to the store. Being a devout Christian, Ed struggled with evicting her from living behind the store, but just couldn't bring himself to do it. "If that's all she's got" was his attitude. Well, Ed's life was turned upside because of his giving heart. His main concern is his customers and that's why he is currently working out of the parking lot since archery season is coming up. He wants to make sure all the archery customers are taken care of before he starts the re-building process. This is what makes Ed so special. In the face of tragedy, he is more concerned about "his archers" than rebuilding. I am asking all who know Ed, please pitch in and take some burden off of this great human being.
