A great big heart goes out to Kyla S. Woodall, a kindergartner at Clark Elementary School. You’re doing a great job with litter cleanup, taking this project on yourself at the Whiteland Junior Baseball Diamonds. You worked hard gathering up all the trash accumulated over this terrible, terrible winter. You make us proud by helping take care of our community and school property.

Lots of hearts to my great friends and neighbors for helping me through my recent illness and keeping the snow off my drive so I could keep my doctor visits; also to Glenda Krueger for being there through my surgery and taking me to all my appointments — she has been my rock. I am so blessed. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped with Greenwood Middle School’s Reality Store! Many thanks to the school PTO for providing the wonderful lunch, and to the many parents and businesses who helped make this event possible. Also, thank you to the Indiana Women’s Education Foundation for coming up with the curriculum to guide us through this project. The students really enjoyed the activity and learned a very valuable lesson! Thanks again to everyone for making the “Reality Store” a success!

Hearts to all the people in the Center Grove community who once again generously donated to the Center Grove Scholarship Foundation. Our student callers raised over $27,000 in pledges during our recent phonathon. Thanks to the student callers themselves as well! A huge heart to Texas Roadhouse and McDonald’s at Stones Crossing Road for providing dinner for our callers, too. What a great community!

Big beautiful hearts to Jane Blessing and Johnson Memorial Hospital for the free cholesterol screening and glucose screenings recently. Without adequate health insurance, I haven’t been going to the doctor; and it turns out that I have some issues that needed to be addressed. Jane, thank you for directing me to the navigator at

Windrose who is helping me get affordable health insurance. From going to a smoke-free workplace, to health screenings, to finding insurance, your caring has had a huge impact on my life. I am more grateful than you

can imagine.
