Many thanks.

The Humane Society of Johnson County would like to thank Damien Katt and Mike Rogier from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office for all their hard work in building cat walks and shelving inside our cat room. Our cats absolutely love them. Thanks so much for spending time on your days off to help make it happen. You guys are awesome.

A box full of hearts to Doug Stahl and John Gates from Johnson County REMC for presenting an electrical voltage demonstration to the Nineveh Clover Rovers 4-H Club. We have them come every other year (since new members join) to know the importance of the dangers of electric lines. If you have a club or group, feel free to contact the REMC office for a free presentation — it may save a life.

Thanks very much to the kind, honest person who turned in my purse left in the cart at Walmart on May 11.
Recently I was pleasantly surprised to see 30 plastic flamingos in my yard. They were sent anonymously by someone who donated money in my name to Relay for Life. What fun we had! The only problem was I never got to see them in the daylight. When I first noticed them it was already dark, and the next day, I worked the polls and was gone the entire day. By the time I got home they were mysteriously gone. Thank goodness, Sandy Weddle had a camera and took pictures. What a great idea to raise money for Relay for Life.
Pro bono hearts to the attorneys who participated in the bar association’s Ask a Lawyer Day as our community outreach project in conjunction with Law Day. Extra hearts to Melanie Rasmussen for organizing and working the event. I would also like to thank Mayor Mark Myers and Judge Lew Gregory for providing the Greenwood Community Center and city court locations, as well as our county judges for providing locations at the courthouse. Giving competent and concise legal information to many who otherwise would not be able to hire an attorney demonstrates your commitment to the betterment of our community.
Joe Villanueva president, Johnson County Bar Association,
Darts to the person who came to our house late at night on the night of March 30 and stole our flag off our porch. My husband saved for that flag. We are great-grandparents and work hard for what we have. The flag was a large yellow flag and had a snake on it. It said “Don’t Tread on Me.” We have been here many years, and this is the first time we have had anything stolen. We are praying for you.
