CHEERS AND JEERS — For Oct. 6-7

(Continued)

READER CHEERS

... to all the dented, crushed and mangled orange cones and orange-and-white barrels that have given their all this spring and summer, trying to protect the construction workers, who are so near and dear to many of us.

— Patricia Elliott, Sellersburg

READER CHEERS

... to Jeffersonville RiverStage Director Sara Kraft-Schutz, and the RiverStage staff and volunteers for another great season.

The venue’s Summer Concert Series, Twilight Cinema, Anchors Aweigh Fitness program and wide variety of special events offered something for everyone this year. We saw smiling faces at the RiverStage all summer — all made possible by the hard work of the RiverStage crew.

Way to go, guys.

— Leah Farris, city of Jeffersonville

READER JEERS

... to the person or persons who continue to steal political signs out of yards in the downtown area of town. Candidates and there committees work very hard to find there supporters and get these signs out, and for someone to come a long and just steal them is not only wrong, it is a crime. Let me assure you when you are caught you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

The price of a campaign goes up when your efforts have to keep being redone because of thieves. This affects everyone because good people will soon find it is not worth the effort to run for elected office when this keeps happening.

We need to keep the interested people running for office. Let’s all be observant and if we see people taking signs, take a picture and sent it to the election board.

Together we can stop this crime and get good people elected.

— Dan Christensen, Jeffersonville

Editor’s note: Christensen is the husband of Greater Clark Schools Board candidate Becka Christensen

READER JEERS

... to the city of New Albany for not restriping the city parking lot at the bottom (south) of State Street and Pearl Street in preparation for Harvest Homecoming.

— William Longest, New Albany
