... to the City of Jeffersonville and the merchants that supported the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Clark County’s “Paint The Town Purple”.
How exciting it was to see the community support a worthy cause. The gazebo at Warder Park was decorated in purple with various bands providing entertainment. Windows and employees were dressed in purple and merchants offered freebies or discounts.
I hope this fun and “purple” fundraiser will become an annual event.
— Jan McCauley, Floyd County
... to Superior Court No. 3 Judge Joseph Weber’s community service men.
Under the direction of Joe Renck, they spent hours in demolition work at 721 Michigan Ave. and in moving the collection of the Clark County Museum Inc.
We can’t say enough good things about them, but we thank them all.
— Jeanne Burke, president, Clark County Museum Inc.
... to Jerry Finn and his Beautify Downtown New Albany Committee for the splash of colors on downtown street corners.
— William Longest, New Albany

CUMMINS: Join me in disobeying the government
If you have any notions about how we can overthrow the government, contact me, but do not use a cell or email. BigGov is tracking its citizen’s movements, maybe bowels. It’s getting so that about the only means of communicating privately, is to use the pony express or a carrier pigeon.
HOWEY: Drs. Bucshon, Brown and the Obamacare era
Larry Bucshon is a heart surgeon, a Republican and a congressman. He has had employees who have reached lifetime insurance caps and ended up on Medicaid. He has seen thousands of poor Hoosiers on Medicaid denied access to health care. He paid about $40,000 a year in medical malpractice insurance, a figure that is much lower than in most states. And he is a vociferous critic of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, and has consistently urged its repeal.
