CHEERS AND JEERS — For June 29-30


... to the Floyd County Parks Department park of the month program.

What a great idea to inform residents about the parks in the county. We look forward to learning about them and visiting them.

— Joan Trusner, Floyds Knobs


... to the New Albany-Floyd County Consolidated School System board for opening the swimming pools at Hazelwood and Scribner Middle Schools for the 2013-14 school year.

I want to thanks the board and Ms. Rhonda Mull, middle school director, for their hard work in planning the reopening of the two pools. I think this will improve the physical education program at both schools.

— Sonny Wright, retired physical education teacher, New Albany-Floyd County Schools
