... to clerks at Walgreens pharmacies in Clark and Floyd counties.
It is obvious they have not only been taught great customer service, but are employing it. Nearly every trip I make to a Walgreens, I am impressed with the high level of customer service provided.
Congratulations to management as well. Whatever program you are selling your employees, it’s obvious that they’re buying into it.

... to a local athlete with special skills.
He’re to a safe trip and a fun time to Amon Armour as the 7-year-old competes in the 2013 World Dwarf Games in Michigan.
See the story about Amon on page A1 today and you’ll learn that the Jeffersonville elementary-schooler truly gets the most out of his abilities.
That’s something we all can strive for.

... to the city of Jeffersonville for adding a protected turn arrow to the traffic light for drivers on Middle Road wanting to turn onto Allison Lane.
I wrote to the News and Tribune a while back about the need for this as it was dangerous and caused terrible backups on Middle Road especially at rush hour. I'm glad to see the city apparently researched this and agreed with me. A big thank you to whomever is responsible for doing this.
— Mike Ranney, Jeffersonville

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.
