CHEERS AND JEERS — For Oct. 5-6

(Continued)

READER CHEERS

... to all those who offered us congratulations and helped us celebrate 100 years in the plant business at Walnut Ridge.

We have always been grateful to the community for their support and would like to extend a special thanks to our wonderful employees, as well.

Thank you to all who have helped make this possible.

— The Julius family

READER CHEERS

... to the Jeffersonville Library for offering small group and individual assistance in navigating the new federal Health Insurance Exchange.

Hopefully, the New Albany Floyd County library will follow suit soon.

— Ruthanne Wolfe, New Albany

 

READER JEERS

... to the Pence Administration for refusing billions in federal dollars and an estimated 30,000 new jobs to expand Medicaid to provide health insurance to hundreds of thousands of poor Hoosiers.

It was a very foolish decision and there is no reasonable excuse for it.

— Ruthanne Wolfe, New Albany

READER CHEERS

... to the New Albany Housing Authority for their Excellence in Housing award.

They are a hard-working team with a strong and active board that demonstrate the possibilities that can be realized by the disenfranchised when they have a strong supportive team walking with them to reach the goal of self-sufficiency.

— Susan Ryan, New Albany

READER CHEERS

... to the Jeffersonville Public Library for their expansive work in providing ways for people to learn how to navigate the new health care website and choose the right insurance plan.

It would be great if something similar could happen in New Albany.

— Susan Ryan, New Albany

READER CHEERS

... to the gentlemen who helped me load mulch into by Ford Ranger truck last Saturday at ABOUT 6 p.m. at the Thornton’s on State Street in New Albany.

I thought I could do it myself, but seeing I has having difficulty, this nice gentleman stopped pumping his gas and came to my rescue.

Thanks again for being my angel for the day.

— Coelen Mattingly, Galena
