> SOUTHERN INDIANA —
... To former New Albany basketball/football standout Chris Whitehead for verbally committing recently to Fordham University.
Whitehead played at Danville Area Community College this past season, where he averaged 12.3 points a game and was a National Junior College Athletic Association Division II All-American.
Whitehead was a great athlete at New Albany and I am sure will make us all proud at Fordham, which is based in New York City and plays in the Atlantic 10 Conference. All I can say is Fordham fans will enjoy watching Whitehead play for the next two years. He’s tough, quick, can handle the ball and should excel in the Atlantic 10 next season.
... To the men, women and kids who took the time out of their lives on Saturday, April 27, 2013, in the Edwardsville Clean Up Project. Thank you so much for your time and dedication to the community to plant trees and clean up the trash. You did an outstanding job and deserve the gratitude of our community.

... Cheers for a new bench for the people who purchase items or groceries at New Albany WalMart to sit on. A couple of years ago I called WalMart manager and the city about a bench for the people who ride the city bus. I’ve seen seniors sitting on the ground, curbs and grocery carts. Thank heavens someone cares about the residents.
Really be nice if they add another bench and maybe a roof for their protection.
Someone who cares about the youth and senior citizens of New Albany.

Thanks again and be blessed.
