CHEERS AND JEERS — For Oct. 5-6

READER CHEERS

... to New Albany Mayor Jeff Gahan and the many volunteers that put together the car show in Downtown New Albany on Sept. 21.

With more than 150 cars there on a day of many other car shows in Southern Indiana, it shows the dedication that was put forth. We hope this becomes a regular event.

Somerset, Ky., has proven how you can bring thousands of people and thousands of dollars to a downtown on a Saturday afternoon. Our group ate at one of the sponsoring restaurants for the first time and others ate at the restaurant that passed out fliers to the car owners.

Once again, thanks for all those who worked hard to put on this car show.

... to Zee Auto on 10th Street for fixing my car and not taking advantage of me because I was a woman.

Not only did they fix my car for the amount they quoted me, they went above and beyond. For that, I am truly grateful.

I would like to let all the women know who don’t have a man in their life to fix their car, that you can definitely trust these guys — and my car is an import. I also want to mention I still have both arms and legs after our business transaction. Thank you Zee.

...  to humanity paying it forward.

While enjoying breakfast with my siblings and our spouses at Frisch’s on Grant Line Road, something we do each month, our waitress informed us our tabs were picked up by a lady who had been seated across the way, and had already exited.

There were seven of us, not like it was only $15 to $20 to shell out. Thank you to the mystery lady from all of us, it sure made our day. God Bless you.
