Hearts & Darts – August 8


Many hearts to the Center Grove High School girls swim team and aquatic club. Our daughter, Lexi, recently suffered a badly crushed elbow. The amount of love, support and encouragement she has received from her teammates, their parents and other high school friends has been unbelievable. It is heart-warming to see a group of high school girls rally around their injured teammate. Thank you for brightening her days and lifting her spirit. You mean more to her and us than you’ll ever know.

As someone who has family and friends serving in the military, my heartfelt appreciation to all the politicians, from both sides of the aisle, and others in our community and country who have come to the defense of Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the parents of a U.S. solider killed in Iraq. No military family should have to endure disrespect and humiliation from narrow-minded and self-centered people, especially someone who is wanting to become our commander in chief.

This year’s annual Katie Robards Scholarship golf outing was a huge success. Everyone had a great time in spite of the rain and most of all we were able to raise a substantial sum of money for our mom’s memorial scholarship. Special hearts to the Johnson Memorial Hospital Foundation for managing the scholarship and allowing us to aid 23 recipients in their quest for education. Finally, hearts to Amber Pasel and the staff at Hickory Stick Golf Course for the great job they did hosting the event.

Katie’s boys —

Darts to the Daily Journal staff who didn’t recognize the historical importance of a major political party nominating a woman for the role of president. There was no mention or recognition of Hillary Clinton’s nomination on the front page; it was stuck on page 2 without any photo. A local activity center, construction projects and Korean memorabilia were deemed more important than this historic event. Regardless of anyone’s political leaning, the nomination of a woman for this prestigious and powerful role earned front page status. Shame on you.
