... to local business owner Roger Baylor for promoting the “buy local” idea. Supporting our local farmers and merchants is good for everyone in this area.

... to Angel Jackson, of Utica, who was instrumental in the production of the Clark County Casting and Conservation Club’s gun-safety seminar held Feb. 9.
Jackson is a member of the CCCC Club Ladies Auxiliary and did a tremendous amount of work putting the program together that provided gun-safety tips to the nearly 125 people who attended the hour-long seminar.
I could not have been able to put this together without her.
— Tony Johnson, CCCC Club member
... To the city of New Albany [Jeff Gahan and City Council] for not helping the Vintage Fire Museum obtain funding to remain in New Albany.
They can find money to buy buildings to tear down to make a park [Pearl and Spring streets]. The fire museum would be a draw to get people to visit New Albany and possibly generate some revenue for us. But, like anything worth having, we let neighboring communities have it. I really wish you could come up with a way to keep the museum in our community.
— Vicky Habermel, New Albany

OUR OPINION: Spacing out high school plays would help
For all the strengths of the theater programs, why isn’t inter-program communication one of those? Opening so many shows in one week seems counter-productive for every program getting ready to debut a play.

DODD: The heroin epidemic
On a daily basis, I meet people who use drugs. It’s almost amusing when it’s a young person who is only driving drunk from too much alcohol or simply smoking a bit of pot. It almost seems like you breathe a sigh of relief.
Heroin is the biggest problem today.
