CHEERS & JEERS: March 3-4, 2012

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — CHEERS

... to the city of New Albany’s new website.

I read News and Tribune reporter Daniel Suddeath’s story on the upgrade in Wednesday’s paper and said, “Well, there’s NO WAY it’s nicer than Clarksville’s new site...” — which I discovered earlier the same day has also undergone a major overhaul.

I’m not going as far as to say one is nicer than the other but, wow, what awesome makeovers these two sites have undergone — making strides in actually providing information to people looking for it and making it pleasant to look at at the same time.

CHEERS

... to the city of Jeffersonville for finally putting up signs recognizing the 2011 Jeffersonville High School Girls’ Basketball State Championship team.

It’s been nearly a year and I can’t imagine what took them so long to make the recognition, but I’m glad someone finally did. We ARE proud to be the home of the 2011 state champions. I just wish the signs specifically named Jeffersonville High School so everyone would know who it is we’re so proud of.

— Amy Huffman-Branham, Assistant Editor

READER CHEERS

... to Zach Payne and Matt Owen, somewhat newly elected and very young members of the Jeffersonville City Council.

Each has provided a mature voice of reason and logic in their comments and reflections during council meetings and it seems they are genuinely making the effort to represent the people of Jeffersonville who elected them — not themselves.

All politicians must begin the process of moving from what they want for our city to what the people want for our city. Before speaking, go through the thought process of questioning: What is best for the majority?  

Remember Malcolm Forbes words, “Elected leaders who forget how they got there won’t the next time.”

— Carol Dawson, Jeffersonville
