... to great service at Pizza Hut

After a wonderful service for Sunday school at my local church on Father’s Day, about 10 of us church folks, including the pastor, decided to go to Pizza Hut on 10th Street in Jeffersonville. The restaurant had been recently remodeled and we wanted to check it out. The food was normally good there, and if they had remodeled, this would be the Hut of all Huts, taking it from good to great.

The waitress seated us in an area together and we feasted. During the course of the brunch and all of us having gotten our fill, the power to the facility goes out about 1:30 p.m. The oven lost power, the drink machine and the cash register.

Some of us scavengers raided the pizza bar for the last helpings. The waitress thankfully brought out drink refills in a bottled version.

Our group waited for a while to see if the power would come back on to print out our bills. Surprisingly, the manager comes out and apologizes for the inconvenience, to no fault of her own. She stated that lunch was on us for the trouble. What a nice Father’s Day gift. So hats off to Pizza Hut, it’s truly a Pops’ Hut.

Come on dads, let’s take our kids to Pizza Hut.

P.S. I forget the tip, sorry.

... to all of the volunteers who came out, regardless of the heat, on Saturday, June 15, to help with the Clark County Ohio River Sweep.

We had a great turnout at the Falls of the Ohio State Park, with a significant amount of debris removed from the banks of the Ohio River. Scouts, civic organizations, businesses, church groups, families and individuals made the event a huge success. Many of the large items were recycled, including truck and car tires, plastic and a metal door.

Although the majority of volunteers were residents of Clark County, many participants came to help from Floyd and Jefferson counties as well. Alayne Wright, a resident of Louisville and a retired employee of American Commercial Barge Lines, has helped man the Ashland Park location since 1997. She dedicates her time volunteering for various organizations, and continues to give back to the Clark County area by working the sweep. Thank you so much, Alayne!

A special shout-out goes to Troop No. 1 from Jeffersonville for their extra effort. They took on the task of hauling a discarded Jacuzzi a great distance up the river bank, so that it could be picked up by Clarksville storm and street department crews. Each year this troop comes out to help with the cleanup, and they obviously aren’t afraid of hard work. Thanks Troop #1!

Hope to see you at next year’s sweep.

— Carol Huff, Clark County Ohio River Sweep Coordinator
