CHEERS AND JEERS — For Jan. 26-27


... to Publisher Bill Hanson, our fearless leader, on being named the first-ever Publisher of the Year for our parent company, CNHI.

We all knew you would amount to something. Thanks for everything you do.

— News and Tribune staff



... to co-workers, Assistant Editor Chris Morris, Staff Writer Jerod Clapp and Photographer Christopher Fryer for risking life and limb to push my out-of-operation car down Market Street to Mike Smith Firestone on Thursday.

Traffic was heavy, and the weather was cold, but they didn’t hesitate and for that I’m quite thankful.

— Staff Writer Daniel Suddeath



To the guy living in downtown Jeffersonville that allows his dog to poo in the gravel parking lot of the News and Tribune.

Scoop the poop!

— Chief Photographer Chuck Branham



... to an anonymous person who started a chain of kindness at the Waffle House in Sellersburg Jan. 19.

My son and I were surprised to have our server tell us that the people who had just left the booth next to ours had paid our bill. As we ate, we noticed another table and decided to pay it forward and pay their bill. The server said that this chain of kindness would likely be passed forward all day.

Thanks for starting something that made us and many other people smile today, and for your unexpected gift.

— Janet and Larry Bolan, New Albany



... to the two-man chipper truck crew of the Clarksville Street Department. 

Not only did they pick up the branches that I had set out to the curb but they also picked up a pile I had “waiting” to put to the curb. They also took the time to rake and gather the leftover debris leaving my yard and the street clean. 

Thank you and good job.
