... to a few of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet workers.
A tire on my car had a major blowout Friday on Interstate 65 — just a bit south of the Kennedy Bridge. Instead of braving the bridge, I veered off onto Interstate 64. One of the workers waved me over to a construction lane, which was much more safe.
He and a couple of other workers surrounded the car like and Indy 500 pit crew. It would have taken me four times as long to change the tire without their teamwork. I think they bested a record set by the Dad in “A Christmas Story.”

... and a thank you to the person who found my purse and returned it to my neighbor with nothing missing. What a blessing.
While spending Thanksgiving day with my daughter, I received a call from by neighbor who said, Melba, someone has found your purse and returned it. When I did not answer my door, they went next door to my neighbors and left my purse with her.
In this day and time when you hear all the negative, I just wanted to pass on some positive and very good news. Thanks again to the person who took time out of their Thanksgiving Day to return my purse to me.
— Melba Jacobs, New Albany
... to the Jeffersonville Township Public Library and the library staff. We are so lucky to have the library.
As a senior citizen, I made a weekly visit to the library for books and movies. It is always decorated for the seasons. Check the Christmas window when you visit the library this month.

... to the combined music departments at Floyd Central High School for an absolutely wonderful Christmas concert that combined the talents of orchestra, band, handbells and several choirs.
The music was breathtaking and so very well done. The directors and students all deserve several rounds of applause.

... to a loss for Jeffersonville.
I am so sad and really surprised to learn that after all Clarence Hulse has done for our community that the new mayor would get rid of him as a matter of course.
Clarence has been an amazing part of the growth of our city for the last year and a half, having started so many new projects and worked so hard to get people involved with their communities and helping to educate neighborhood organizations.
I have never met the new mayor but, I think some of the changes he is making will have a more negative effect on our community then he is aware.
To Clarence I say: You are wished only the best and where ever you end up they will be lucky to have you as part of their community.

... to the Greater Clark County Schools board.
Actually, a BIG jeer. This board just listened to 20 teachers and principals speak, literally begging the board to keep Dr. Stephen Daeschner as superintendent. It was the most moving 1 1/2 hours I ever heard.
The board didn’t care and slapped them in the face. We have lost the best superintendent we ever had. It is a sad day for the students of Greater Clark County Schools.
— Missy DeArk, Jeffersonville
... to the Clarksville Street Department.
Donnie Hansford and his men work hard to keep our streets safe. Thanks to them for repainting the medians on Veterans Parkway with bright yellow paint.
— Joyce Lenz, Clarksville

OUR OPINION: It’s time for Clarksville to consider becoming a city
Polston, in abstaining, said he did not have a good enough grasp of how his constituents felt about the voting issue to vote on the matter himself.
If the town gives its residents the opportunity to hear the benefits and drawbacks of becoming a city, and then lets them vote on the issue via referendum, Polston won’t have to wonder.

OUR OPINION: Residents can gain access at seminar
Here are just a few examples: You have access to information on who gets married and divorced; you can find out what public employees get paid; you can search court records to see if your friends or neighbors have ever been charged with or convicted of a crime; and you can read the minutes of a city council meeting held years ago.
