... to Rauch Inc. and The Studio at the Fairmont Neighborhood Center for giving those with developmental disabilities an outlet to create and display their art.

Last weekend, Central Christian Church hosted works by Rauch artists for sale.

Several pieces also are on display at Primos Deli in New Albany and Rauch is looking for other businesses who want to display works by the artists. Proceeds from the sale of the art helps fund the program.

Call 812-945-4063 or visit rauchinc.org if you are interested in helping out.

READER CHEERS

... to the Clark County Road Department.

We wake up on a snowy morning and look out at our roads and wonder if the kiddos are going to school and if we’ll be able to make it in to work.

Long before the average Clark Countian rises, when weather threats are predicted, Jim Ross, operations manager of the road department has spoken with your commissioners, watched the weather reports, taken to the streets early to ascertain their condition, and when appropriate, calls in a number of our CCRD employees to clear the roads.

Our CCRD employees go to sleep with the expectation that their phones can or will roust them from a deep sleep and a warm bed to call them in to plow our county roads. Yes, that is their job and they know it when they sign up for the job, nonetheless, they roll out of their warm beds and cautiously make their way to the county garages and begin the treacherous task of clearing our roads.

Cheers to the entire road crew. They are the unsung heroes who have been pressed into service many times these last few weeks. My hat is off to each one of you, but not for long, I don’t want my ears to freeze!

Thank you, CCRD.

— Jack Coffman, president, Clark County Commissioners
