CHEERS AND JEERS — For April 20-21


— READER CHEERS

... 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



READER CHEERS

... 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
