all the 4th graders and teachers at Smith Elementary for visiting us and spreading lots of kindness, love and laughter, from Four Seasons Retirement Center.

the police officer for paying for my Starbucks drive thru order on May 17th, I paid it forward, from Lynn.

those who understand that praying for someone does nothing whatsoever except make the person praying feel better about themselves.

reparation’s consideration for my long-deceased Indiana Union army relatives who fought and died to end slavery.

Elaine Hilber for daring to ask the question,”just how does that work” because I don’t think many know how it’s going to work and just rubber stamp the city into bankruptcy.

the entire GOP party for putting forth a spending limit and raising the debt ceiling enough to see us through until this administration is gone.

Bartholomew County Sheriff’s deputies, Elizabethtown fire department volunteers, and CRH ER staff for promptness, professionalism, courtesy, and kindness early Wednesday morning, from B.B.

Onions to

the coach only playing the seniors, not letting other kids on the bench play, that is not showing very good sportsmanship or attitude.

the local elected official whose continued opposition to NexusPark is beginning to look silly.

the city employee who called me “hon” on the phone, not professional, not appropriate.

new HOA that is a clear step backwards from the original group.

reparations that can be a major slippery slope and could create a even bigger divide in our country.

the downtown restaurant with all the tacky signs in the window.

Happy Birthday to
