Hearts & Darts – September 19


  • Habitat for Humanity of Johnson County would like to send a huge heart of gratitude to our partners at NSK Precision America in Franklin for helping finish our “honey-do” list at the new office at 401 Mooreland Dr., New Whiteland. We truly appreciate your continued support. We would also like to send our appreciation to Nordholt Plumbing, LLC for hooking up our kitchen sink.

  • There are many people to be thanked for the successful “Color the County” community mural painting days held in the last few weeks — all organized and funded by the Johnson County Community Foundation — but the big “Thank You” goes to four people. To start with: the three artists, Amber Berninger (Bargersville mural), Gordon Strain (Franklin mural) and Amy Hommell (Greenwood mural). The biggest “Thank You” goes to Kim Minton who project-managed the entire thing. She made sure all the pieces fell into place, all the volunteers were there, all the materials were there. She organized supporting organizations. She organized the art selection process and the communications to the public that ultimately ensured over 500 local citizens showed up to be a part of beautifying our community. Thank you to each and every person who picked up a brush or honked support as they drove by. This 25th anniversary program of the community foundation will benefit our quality of life for years to come.

  • I went to Franklin’s planning board for help in our addition at Whispering Ponds, to no avail, nothing. It does not take a scientist to know the following: A 25 mile per hour speed limit is 10 miles too fast in our addition. Our streets have been patched and patched. Just maybe, they could send someone to investigate?
