The board members of the Johnson County Banquets Inc. would like to thank the Daily Journal for the coverage you have given us over the past six years. Your front-page articles, with colorful pictures, made it possible for us to reach many folks who volunteered to help, wanted to give a monetary donation, needed meals delivered to them or just needed to know where and when they could join us on Thanksgiving Day. Ryan Trares has come to our board meetings to learn about our endeavors and made sure a photographer came to take pictures at our events.

Big hearts and many thanks to all the county road crews that worked 12-hour shifts for over a week to clear our streets. They couldn’t stop to clear the ends of driveways because of the many miles of streets that needed to be plowed. Maybe the next time we get a heavy snowfall these drivers could use a few smiles and waves to let them know they’re appreciated.
Thank you, Mike Ryle at New Whiteland utilities, for digging my car out of the driveway and street, as I was blocking Lynwood Drive. Without your help and that of Rick Gregory and my husband, I might be blocking Lynwood until spring.
Thank you to the multiple public safety officials, fire departments, police officers and members of the Indiana National Guard who helped fight the fire on Jan. 6 on my property at 191 Commerce Drive in Franklin. Not only did each of you put your life on the line to save the building and the four businesses within, but you did so in horrible weather conditions and subzero temperatures. My hat is off to each of you. Many, many thanks.
A huge heart to Franklin Fire Station No. 22, C shift. My grandson, Cole Boenig, was here for Christmas (he lives in Texas) and his birthday was also during his visit. The group of firemen and EMTs on duty could not have been more accommodating and caring. My grandson and his friends had a blast. Thank you again.

A big thanks to the city of Greenwood snowplowers and anyone else responsible for doing a good job plowing the streets in the Silver Springs addition. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
Franklin Elks Lodge 1818 and the veterans who were served send a huge thank-you and many hearts to two local retailers, Dollar Tree and Walmart. Using funds provided by the Elks veterans committee, an extensive list of approximately 1,355 items was purchased to benefit the Roudebush VA Hospital in time for the holidays. It was during this shopping event that we found tremendous support from these two fine stores in their efforts to accommodate our large order and in their generous contributions as well. It was truly a case of them going over and above what was expected.

Hearts to our neighbors Ron Angela and Mike Strouse for clearing our driveway of snow. Ron has cleared it twice, and Mike once this winter. God bless both of them for their concern and kindness.
The Bargersville Police Department would like to thank the kind and caring person who dropped off several hand warmers at the door of the police department in Bargersville.

The city of Franklin is doing a lousy job of cleaning the streets after a snowstorm. It is downright dangerous to drive. What seems to be the problem? We as residents pay enough taxes for the city to make sure the streets are plowed as needed and are safe to drive on. Whoever is in charge of the snow removal needs to do their job efficiently. It is high time to make this matter a priority.
