Crossing guard’s hat collection causing a commotion [Video]

with one comment


“Some of the kids like to guess what hat I’ll have on that day.”
Reverand Larry Douthwaite has been crossing school kids at an intersection in Littlestown for 15 years.  He wears a different fun hat everyday.

“When you get people going to work in the morning, they’re grumpy and in a hurry.  When they see me with the hats, most will smile.”
Pastor Douthwaite says he has more than 100 hats.  Everything from Nemo to a birthday hat, a moose hat, Mike from Monsters, Inc.  Remember him?  A turkey hat for Thanksgiving, a Pharo hat, cheese, and a Nittany Lion.  But he says his favorite is “Air Jesus.'”
But just a few weeks ago – Air Jesus – and all the other hats were shelved.  Borough Manager Linda Hess, who didn’t want to speak with CBS 21 News on camera, told the Reverend – “hats off!”
“She says it’s a distraction and unprofessional.”

  1. The Linda Hess lady needs to get over herself. I wish there were more people like Rev. Douthwaite.
