... to the New Albany 9-10-year-old All-Star team for winning its third-straight state championship Thursday with a 6-1 victory over Highland.
What a great accomplishment for these future big leaguers and for the New Albany Little League.

... to a very good Samaritan.
A reader who wished to remain anonymous wrote the News and Tribune this letter last week, and I thought it was worth sharing:
“Cheers to the good Samaritan that stopped on Second Street in Louisville on Friday night, July 19, and saved me from the beating I was receive from two to three men with bats or pipes, who were trying, I guess, to steal my m-oped.
If not for this man, I truly believe I wouldn’t be here now. I want him to know he made a difference; he didn’t have to stop.
At risk of his own well-being, he interceded and saved me. It’s good to know that there are still people out there who really care and will go to extreme lengths to help someone else.
God will smile on you for your selfless act in the face of danger and know I will always appreciate what you have done for me, my children and family. You are my hero.”

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.
