Thumbs up, thumbs down for April 22


spread joy

Kudos to everyone who organized all of the Easter Egg Hunts in Jackson County in the days leading up to Easter. It’s always good to spread joy to children, especially in light of what they and we have all had to endure over the past few years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A related thumbs up goes to Heather Scott, who dressed up as the Easter Bunny and helped spread joy to local children and adults in the week leading up to Easter. The Brownstown woman spent her money, time and energy buying candy, coloring books and other items to distribute to children and adults at area schools, restaurants, businesses and other venues.

Share your knowledge

Kudos to Seymour FFA members who participated in a Seymour Fifth Grade Farm Day on April 14 at Cortland Elementary School. The event allows FFA members to share their knowledge and experiences with younger children who may not have the chance to learn about farm animals and farming up close. The event also helps FFA members practice their leadership skills and patience.

Braves of the month

Congratulations to the two girls and boy who recently won Brownstown Central Community School Corp’s March Student of the Month. The three, recognized at the April 12 board meeting at the administration office, were fifth-year Brielle Killey, seventh-year Sawyer Brown and junior Madison Edwards. Each received a certificate for the honor.

feed a need

Kudos to Amy Schleter of Crothersville who recently received approval to start a community garden at Bard Street Park in this southeast Jackson County town. Schleter said she wants to provide food for people who can’t afford food or are going out of town to have a place to come for free fresh food. A number of other local residents jumped on board to help Schleter achieve his goal by serving on the board or donating items to get the project started.

Costly Counterfeit

Kudos to those who make and then attempt to distribute counterfeit money. These efforts end up costing us more in the long run in terms of higher prices.
