CHEERS AND JEERS — For Sept. 21-22

CHEERS

... to one of our own, staff writer and photographer Jerod Clapp, who married his long-time girlfriend Amber last weekend and took a deserved week off to honeymoon.

As the education beat reporter, he even timed it perfectly for him, as ISTEP results were released to the public this past week.

Here’s to Jerod and his family on a long, happy life.

CHEERS

... to Jeffersonville business owners Loretta and Clifton Beckner, who haven’t been scared off by the cowardly burglar or burglars who have hit their downtown Jeffersonville business three times in as many years.

A man who was familiar to the Beckners was arrested for the most recent break-in this week, and hopefully that will give peace of mind to a couple that has owned for nearly 30 years, and more years of success are ahead.

CHEERS

... to the early sponsors and supporters of the inaugural Power of Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Gala, hosted by Elder Advisers, which is set for Oct. 25 at Kye’s in Jeffersonville.

For the first time, the Southern Indiana community is coming together on one night to fight breast cancer and place the disease on our collective conscience. The gala, which is the result of the combined work of representatives of more than 20 businesses in Clark and Floyd counties, will be held Oct. 25 at Kye’s in Jeffersonville.

The formal gala will feature a reception, a catered dinner, an art show and auction, as well as live music by V-Groove. Most importantly, the benefactor will be the American Cancer Society. With a goal of raising no less than $10,000 for breast cancer treatment and education, this is Southern Indiana’s chance to give back.

Tickets are $50 per individual; $400 to sponsor a table [seating for eight]. For information about attending, or about supplying merchandise or services for the live or silent auction, contact Bill Hanson at 812-206-2134 or email at bill.hanson@newsandtribune.com
